Ancient Healing Practices with Crystals.

For millennia, crystals, minerals, and gems have been used to heal and improve physical, emotional, and spiritual balance.

Ancient civilizations must have somehow known that when worn, the energies of the stones interact with the human electromagnetic field to cause subtle energetic changes.

Throughout history kings and queens have used crystals in their jewelry, crowns, thrones, and swords.

Placing crystals in the crown on the head of a royal king can activate his crown chakra, and so does a necklace over the heart chakra, finger rings for energy meridians, and earrings to stimulate the energetic points.

According to ancient medicine, the cells in the human body also vibrate at certain frequencies, just like the chakras (the centers of the human energy body). So when we come into contact with a crystal, its vibration interacts with the vibration of the cells in our body.

The ancient Egyptians used crystals for protection and health and buried the dead with a piece of quartz in their foreheads to help guide them to the afterlife.

Forehead crowns were also used to stimulate the third eye. They even used lapis lazuli and malachite powdered as eye makeup.

Perhaps most interestingly, the pharaohs carried a copper cylinder and a zinc cylinder, each filled with quartz, to balance the body's Ka and Ba energies (the equivalent today of Yin and Yang).

Indigenous Tribes

The American Indians and the indigenous tribes of Australia have used, and continue to use, crystals to diagnose and cure illnesses. Many of the stones used in their traditional jewelry are believed to contain healing powers, such as Agate, Turquoise, Onyx, and more.

Tibetan Buddhists

Tibetan Buddhists have considered quartz crystal spheres to be objects of great sacred and spiritual power, believing that their properties could even help with enlightenment.

In Buddhism, the Medicine Buddha is called the "Healing Master of Lapis Lazuli Radiance", and his rituals include meditating with lapis lazuli.

Ancient China

The 5,000-year-old practice of Chinese medicine (Wu) often incorporates crystals for their healing powers, including the use of crystal needles in modern Chinese acupuncture and pranic healing.

Chinese emperors were even buried wearing jade armor as a symbol of wealth and power.

Isn't the information left by our ancestors enough to understand the magic that exists behind the crystals?

I incorporate healing crystals in my Reiki sessions for clearing, revitalizing, and healing the chakra centers and establishing the vital energy of the body. Crystals act as a repair mechanism allowing positive, healing energy to flow into the body as negative, disease energy flows out.
