CRYSTAL HEALING , CHOOSING A CRYSTAL, CLEANSING, PROGRAMMING and PENDULUMS
Crystal Therapy is the ancient art of laying-on-of-stones. Gems, stones and crystals are laid on the body over the chakra points. Each chakra resonates to a particular colour, so by laying a stone of that colour over the chakra, the chakras open, align and blend with one another. When the chakra system is balanced, the physical body is able to innately self-correct and heal.
Crystals are used in different ways for healing. Crystal healing can be done in person with the laying on of crystals – ie placing crystals actually on the body, or crystal healing nets can be used where the crystals are placed both on and around the clients body in a particular pattern. Of course there are many other ways of healing involving crystals such as distant crystal healing, meditation with crystals for healing oneself, along with placing crystals in specific positions in ours and others homes. Crystal healing can also be combined with Reiki.
Laying on of crystals involves placing either clear quartz, coloured crystals or both actually on and around the clients body and is often quite intense with a physical detoxification process lasting up to a week. The client usually lays on a couch or floor mattress and the therapist chooses appropriate crystals to use. If coloured crystals are used then these should be used with the appropriate chakra. This will bring the clients vibration into alignment and a balancing of energies in the chakras and aura. Laying on of crystals is a powerful way of clearing negative energies, allowing the release of emotions and bringing light and healing to the aura. Crystal healing nets involve placement in different patterns to achieve specific effects or healing outcomes
There are many ways of selecting a healing crystal – and often this is very much a personal choice of what works the best. Sometimes you will go to a crystal shop and you will be attracted to the one that you need – this could be visually – a colour or shape you are attracted to. Or it could be when you put your hands over the crystals on offer and feel heat, cold or tingling etc. You may have researched the stone you need – the same applies – when you look at those specific crystals in the shop, the one you need will make itself known to you.
Another method is to identify what you would like to achieve with the crystal and research which ones would be suitable. Hold one of these crystals (or think about holding it if buying online) and state a positive affirmation. See how it feels. If it feels good – makes you feel happy, tingly etc then this could be the one. If you are more in tuned with your body then you could also try muscle testing – balance upright and hover – and let your body fall naturally. If you fall forward then this means the crystal could be the right one.
Vibration match is very important when selecting a crystal. Our own personal vibrations vary throughout the day – rising when we are happy and lowering when sad. Thus when selecting a crystal we are looking at one which makes us feel good and generally that will mean it is raising our vibrations to a higher frequencies.
What about purchasing online? This is similar to visiting a shop – you should browse through the selection of crystals and the type you need will ‘stand out’ to you. When you purchase from ourselves we will mentally say your name as we pick the actual crystal – so will be drawn to pick the one for you.
There are various methods of cleansing a healing crystal including cleansing with natural water, salt water, holy water, earth cleansing, using fire, rice or essential oil. Additionally, you can place a crystal for a few hours on either a large quartz crystal cluster or bed of amethyst. If using sea salt then add sea salt to a bowl of cold water and place the crystals in the bowl. Leave for 5 to 10 minutes and either let dry naturally or dry straight away.
Crystals are programmed for either meditation, healing or absent healing. This is important in order to focus it on what you need and therefore magnifying the stones’ intent.
A pendulum is generally a pointed crystal hung from a chain of around 6 inches. However metal pendulum points can also be used.
Pendulums can be used for making choices or for affirming – they will give the answer either yes or no to questions. For example you can use a pendulum in making a choice, finding out the best course of action to take, confirming how you really feel about a given subject etc. It is also used to find missing people, pets or lost objects. The pendulum would be swung over a portion of a map and asked if the missing person/pet is there. Additionally the pendulum can be used with regard to health. We subconsciously know what is happening inside our bodies, and by using a pendulum we can move this information into our conscious mind.
Pendulum readings for others can be done, but very few can do this as it takes exceptional skill and experience.
