CRYSTALS AND GEMSTONES
Throughout history many world cultures have used crystals as a healing modality. This healing treatment uses energetic properties of crystals to influence the person's energy field to return to its own healthy vibration frequency. Because each person is different and their own subtle bodies vibrate at different frequencies specific to their own body, different crystals are used as each crystal has its own frequency in order to be applied in healing.
Even in modern technological uses crystals have been shown o be one of the most stable conductors for energy. They are also used for concentrating energy and directing it to a specific spot. Because of this we can harness the same qualities and direct them to a specific part of the human anatomy that needs healing. Disease happens when there is an imbalance in our energy flow. The disease starts in our energy field and then eventually is manifested as a physical condition. The cause of the disease can be psychological or physical trauma or both. In order for healing to occur there has to be a rebalance of the energy body. What originally caused the disease to begin must be dealt with and necessary changes made. Our thoughts have a great affect on our auras. Which in turns affects the physical body.
Everything in the Universe vibrates and crystals bring about healing through the law of resonance. The law of resonance is when two bodies meet and the one with the highest amplitude (vibration) will bring the other into resonance with it. This is how crystals and the human (physical body) interact.
There are many uses of crystals. Helping us to maintain a healthy body is just one of many. Science is only beginning to understand and utilize the many benefits these beautiful gems offer us.
Listed below are the metaphysical properties of a few crystals and gemstones. The term "metaphysical" pertains to things or ideas that are not in physical form. It refers to the non-physical world and the idea of being. The properties are of a spiritual nature.
