Crystal Healing - what is it and how can it help?
What is Crystal Healing?
Crystal Healing (also known as Crystal Therapy) is a holistic therapy that treats the whole person and can be used alongside both orthodox medicine and other complementary therapies. It does not focus on the individual symptoms of the physical body (as with conventional Western medicine) but is instead a ‘Subtle Energy Medicine’. This means that it works as a ‘medicine’ for the subtle energy field (also called the ‘biomagnetic field’ or ‘aura’) that surrounds and interpenetrates our physical bodies. The idea of a Subtle Energy Field is something which has been widely accepted and understood within Eastern medicine for thousands of years, with the concepts of Meridians and Chakras.
How can Crystal Healing help?
The Subtle Energy Field is much finer (literally more ‘subtle’) than our physical body, and so any therapies that work upon it must also be ‘finer’, and able to work upon our emotions and mental states rather than our dense physical selves. Crystals are one of a number of finer vibrational ‘tools’ that can be used in this way (the Bach Flower Remedies for example being another). Each crystal vibrates at a certain frequency, and by introducing this frequency into our energy field, this then allows our dis-eased body to remember a healthier emotional or mental state than the one we are currently expressing. As it is our difficult unresolved emotions and thoughts that put the physical body under stress and can manifest as an illness in the first place, transforming this stress within our energy fields helps our bodes to return to a greater state of harmony and health.
Original Cause of an Illness
Rather than treating the end result of an illness, as with traditional Western medicine, Crystal Healing deals with the original cause of why something has manifested; addressing why such symptoms would need to occur in us in the first place. The physical body is then supported in its own natural self-healing process.
