Crystal Healing Between Myth and Reality

In the beginning, the crystals and gemstones fascinated me by their beauty. When I started to discover their properties I was simply amazed by their magnificence. I believe that the existence of the crystals is a miracle of the Manifestation.

I would like to present in this blog a few aspects of crystal healing.

Crystals, gemstones, and minerals have been used on our Planet for a very long time to achieve physical, emotional and spiritual strength, health and balance. The ancient civilizations used crystals in healing, in purification methods, and during spiritual ceremonies as well.

Crystal healing is known these days as an alternative healing technique in which crystals and other stones are used to cure ailments and/or protect against diseases. Crystals act as conduits for healing allowing healing energies to flow into the body of the patient.

Crystal Healing in the History of Humankind

Crystals and gemstones have properties that facilitate healing. The history of healing with crystals is ancient, dating back to the ancient Sumerians. Ancient Egyptians and Chinese were among the first people that valued and worn crystals -lapis lazuli, jade, carnelian, and turquoise - to ward off illness and negative energy and to gain protection. One of the most investigated uses of crystals was done in ancient India. The Ayurvedic medicine considers that crystals and gemstones have specific energetic and healing properties. In the sacred Hindu scripts, the Vedas, healing crystals are documented with their specific healing properties.

The modern crystal healing is based on the traditional concepts of the Asian cultures, mostly the Chinese concept of life-energy and the Hindu concept of chakras. During a healing session, a crystal healer will place gemstones or crystals on the patient's body aligned with the chakras.

The used gemstones and their positioning will be chosen for the symptoms reported by the patient. Crystal healing also involves the use of crystals and stones as amulets and talismans, worn on the body to ward off illness, shed negative energies and absorb positive energies.

There are many who question the healing power of crystals, claiming that their effect is based only on belief, but it is a fact that humanity has been using crystals, gemstones, and minerals efficiently for thousands of years.
