Crystals have been used for centuries not only for their beauty, but also in healing and for their intense energetic properties.
Based on the premise that everything is energy and there is only energy and its field, we know that everything is influenced by the interaction of their fields. The crystals’ energy field interacts with the energy field of humans and information is transmitted between a crystal and a human via the resonant frequencies occurring in each field.
Thus, the crystal with the correct properties can resonate with a particular condition in the human being with beneficial results. Crystal healing is considered as a branch of vibrational medicine where crystals are used as set of vibratory tools.
You do not need to be an expert in crystal healing to use crystals to benefit you in your everyday life. You also do not need to spend a huge amount of money on a vast range of crystals.
One or two crystals to start is adequate.
The first step would be to identify which areas you would like to have influenced by the crystal energy, keeping in mind that just being in the presence of the crystal is beneficial to you because crystals raise our vibrations by default.
Once you have chosen and cleansed your crystal you need to make a conscious decision to let yourself be open to the influence that the crystal exerts. You will become more sensitive to crystal energies the more you use them.
Sit quietly with the crystal in the palm of your hand and notice any sensations, images or colours that come to you; or place the crystal on your brow and see what you sense through the third-eye chakra.
Then you need to programme the crystal. In order to do this you place the crystal in your right hand with the point facing your body so that it will receive energy from your higher mind. Calm your mind, breathe slowly and rhythmically for a few minutes.
Draw in white light through your crown chakra and concentrate your thoughts on instilling the crystal with healing and balancing power. Imagine the white light being drawn through you and into your hand, filling the crystal with white light energy. Accompany the programming by imagining yourself in perfect health.
