For those of us who believe in the healing and restorative powers of gemstones and crystals, they can be a very powerful alternative or complementary treatment to mental and physical conditions. However much negative Noras like to scoff and snigger, there are thousands who can attest to the transformative powers of these majestic stones.
Whether you seek treatment from a professional healer, or practice at home, understanding and visualizing the theory behind how crystals work can help you make the most out of your gemstones healing properties.
Feel the vibes
When choosing your gemstone you may feel a powerful draw or instinctive inclination towards a specific stone. That might well be because our bodies and healing gemstones and crystals share the same energetic vibrations.
Like us, different gemstones have different vibrations, and, kind of like our attraction to different people in our lives, we are each called to the gemstone that our bodies need at that time.
Placed on strategic parts of the body (typically along the chakras), gemstones and crystals are used to clear any energy blockages which are causing us physically, spiritually emotionally unbalance. Their vibration interacts with our bodies’ own vibrations to restimulate and renew our energy flow.
In an age when it is increasingly more difficult to feel connected to nature, just mindfully holding a gemstone makes us feel grounded. But why is that?
Crystals and gemstones are forged in the heart of the earth, sometimes for over billions of years, continually transforming. During all that time they are literally part of the earth, absorbing her wisdom and energy.
Our monkey minds can leave us fraught, and disconnected. Stress and anxiety are on the rise as we forget our place within nature. Mindfully feeling the presence of a crystal or a gemstone, and accepting their pure energy is bound to be restorative.
