What are Crystals?

Crystals are formed over eons, often appearing at just the right time to accompany whatever healing is required on earth at the time by the collective (hence why new crystals are being discovered with new properties all the time, or so we believe anyway). Throughout history, they have been revered for their mystical properties, serving as tools for spiritual, emotional, and physical healing. Each crystal is a unique and powerful being, vibrating with an energy as old as the earth itself.

How Do Crystals Work?

In both ancient traditions and modern metaphysical practices, it is believed that everything in the universe, living or not, holds its own unique energy. Crystals, having formed through millennia beneath the Earth's surface, are thought to be powerful holders and transmitters of energy. In the realm of crystal energy healing, these stones are understood to vibrate at distinct individual frequencies. Each crystal vibrates at its own frequency due to its unique molecular composition. This concept can be likened to musical notes: just as each note has a distinct sound and feel, each crystal's vibration is unique. These vibrations, in our belief, interact with our body's energy field, bringing it into balance and harmony. Which is why there are so many different crystals for so many different things. 

While the spiritual aspects of crystals are what we are all about here, there's a fascinating scientific aspect too. Some crystals exhibit the piezoelectric effect, where pressure induces an electrical charge. This phenomenon, intriguingly, bridges the gap between tangible science and the spiritual essence of crystals. Did you know that quartz crystals are used in so many different technology aspects? From phones to radio - clever crystals!

Healing with Crystal Resonance

The resonance of crystals can align and heal our energy centers, or chakras.  For example, amethyst is associated with the crown chakra, aiding in spiritual connection, while red jasper is linked to the root chakra, promoting grounding and stability. Like a tuning fork for the soul, each crystal's frequency can recalibrate and rejuvenate our energy fields, facilitating a return to spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being. So in basic terms, healing with crystals, or when you intentionally use a crystal either on a set part of your body or just by having it in your presence, its unchanging frequency will eventually harmonise your own to match it, just like a tuning fork does, as it brings your vibration in alignment with its own you begin to experience the healing properties that the particular frequency has to offer. 

The Role of Color and Composition: The colors and physical composition of crystals aren't just visually appealing; they're also believed to influence their healing properties. Green stones like jade are often associated with the heart chakra, symbolizing growth and renewal, while blue stones like lapis lazuli are connected to the throat chakra, enhancing communication.

Each person's experience with crystals is unique. Some may feel a sense of calm when holding a rose quartz, while others might feel energized by citrine, or it might be the complete opposite. It just goes to show that everyone is different, everyone heals differently and no crystals or method of healing is the 'right way' it is what is the right way for you and your energy and your body.

Now that is just a very basic and somewhat physical overview of how crystals work, if you are on this website you will know or have some idea that there is a lot more at play than just frequency. It also comes down to intention, asking the spirit of the crystal to work with you and guide you, connecting with your crystal on a spiritual level, tuning into your own energy field and needs and being open-minded and aware that the universe has a plan for everyone and will guide you along your path and gently nudge you back when you seemingly appear to be taking the wrong direction for your highest good.

Choosing a Crystal

Selecting a crystal is a sacred and special process. While understanding a crystal's traditional properties is valuable, it is your intuition that will guide you to the crystal that you most need. Trust your inner voice; it will lead you to the crystal that resonates most deeply with your soul's journey. Take a look at the colours that call do you, are you feeling in need of a smooth polished stone or a rough and raw crystal piece. And just remember, when it comes to crystal healing - size does not matter! Even the smallest piece of a stone can achieve ample amounts of healing.
