If you have been into my treatment cabin or frequented a holistic space or class then chances are you will have seen some gemstones commonly referred to as crystals before. They are certainly eye catching with their variety of colours, shapes and sparkles that catch the sun but there is more to them than their decorative properties.
Crystals are rock formations that have been used within technology for years. Many of the first radios ever invented used crystals to transmit the radio waves and some watches, like quartz watches, still use crystals to this day to help power them. For centuries people have believed that these crystals which we find in the earth have certain healing or specialist properties that affect us as human beings.
The very basis of everything on Earth is made up of energy. In the last 50 years Science has realised that Energy is what drives the universe (including the human body). Einsteins famous theory E=mc2 (energy is = to matter x speed squared) basically means energy cannot be destroyed only change from one form to another. Ancient spiritual systems all agree that energy is everything & they have thought that way for a long time. They believe that all we are energy as such can communicate with everything.
The smallest particle of energy known to man is the atom, every solid, liquid, gas, and plasma is composed of neutral or ionised atoms. Like everything in the universe including us crystals are made up of different atoms, molecules and elements. It is then working with this that the theory that we are all energy working on a frequency is how crystals work on the human body.
Holding crystals or placing them on your body is thought to promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Crystals supposedly do this by positively interacting with your body's energy field, or chakra. While some crystals are said to alleviate stress, others are said to improve concentration or creativity.
There are many ways to use crystals so we recommend asking a practitioner in crystal therapy or investing in a good book before you start purchasing so you can select and use crystals in a way that will best benefit you. They so also come from the earth via mining so please be mindful of where you are sourcing them from.
