There is also a long history of using crystals for healing
purposes. In India,
an ancient healing system still uses gemstones in the Ayurvedic
tradition by crushing
certain crystals into powders which are then ingested for their healing
benefits. Not all crystals can be consumed however and it takes an
know what types to prescribe. However, there is way to get healing
simply wearing crystals, by holding them in your hand or by just having
near you. Many people can feel crystals once they know what to look for
as the effects are quite gentle. There
are many physical benefits to using crystals such as a lessening of
faster healing of injuries, clarity of mind and general feelings
Throughout history, crystals have provided healing from the
Earth and have helped to improve the quality of life. During Medieval
would collect mineral specimens and sell them to alchemists who
trying to make gold from these vital substances. The old world
became chemists and helped create modern science. Today, crystals are
industrially. Many different types of crystals are used in jewelry
products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, fertilizers, and in
electronic components such as
computers and MP3 players. There is a continuing fascination for
science, even in NASA where Zeolite1 crystals have been

What is intuition ? It
is the knowing-ness that is already inside you. Sometimes people refer
as their “gut feel”, the ability to know what's right.. You can
increase your intuition at a higher level using
crystals. Sometimes the effect of crystals on the human energy field is
subtle and difficult to describe because there is no real physical
feeling such as “hot” or “cold”. Often, the effects of
crystal healing are very
refined changes to the four levels of being:

The Mystery of Crystals
There is a mystery to crystal healing. Scientists are
often looking for solid evidence that there is always something
accountable for measured repeatable observable effects. However, there
are many things that science neglects such as the nature of
spirituality in all things. Thus, the information is incomplete to
provide a rational explanation for anything. For instance, when we
look at the sunlight, most of us only see radiance. However, when we
put a crystal prism to the light, we see the light refracted into
different bands of light frequencies. Those colours were always
present, but we lacked the ability to see them without the prismatic
tool. We also need the information to actually hold the
prism to the light if we want to see something really exciting !
Similarly, healing energy is always present but many lack
access to the
right tools, being crystals and many lack the information to
direct and receive the healing. Is there a vibration like an
earthquake or a truck rumbling by ? NO. The vibrations of a crystal are
subtle, very gentle. Many people need to be led to open up to another
level of consciousness to actually
feel and use the energy of a crystal. Without this knowledge and
sensitivity, the crystal is just a rock.
Does the molecular structure have anything to do with the subtle
vibrational frequency of the crystal ? Yes, very much ! If you are
familiar with sacred geometry (see Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_geometry
and if you even have an understanding of the sublime architecture of
the Moslem mosques that enjoy these principles, the inherent structure
of a crystal carries the same link to the cosmos. Each crystal and
each type of crystal provides a specialized link for healing as much as
a specific train track takes you to your chosen destination.
When we wear the crystal anywhere on our bodies, we are tuning our
physical, mental, emotional and spiritual systems to a larger cosmos.
If we want to do more "local" healing, we can wear the crystal closer
to the area we wish to heal, whether it is a physical complaint, to
calm an emotion or maybe to work on unblocking a chakra, or to hold
simply for meditative purposes. The Heart chakra as it is considered to
be the centre of all things and is a very good plae to wear a crystal..
