      Default Crystal Therapy

      Note: This is just a guide to Crystal Therapy.

      This is one close to my own heart! If anyonw wants me to expand on this anytime, please let me know

      What is Crystal Therapy?
      Crystals are precious and semi-precious stones, credited with particular astrological, esoteric, and physical properties. Each stone has a particular vibration pattern which can act upon a body’s energy field to increase the available energy and also to correct any
      imbalance or blockages.

      Crystals have been used to transmit healing energy from a healer or other external energy source to a patient, and treatment can be given by placing the crystal on a specific part of the body such as an associated chakra or acupuncture point, or by placing them in configurations or patterns surrounding the client. Particular crystals are credited with special healing properties.

      Select the crystal which has the properties to help you. A list has been provided in order to help you with choosing your crystal. Or.....simply pick the stone that "calls" to you!
      First decide why you are doing the crystal work. Is it for you or someone else? What is the problem? Do you need to give or receive energy? What does it require?
      Tuning in to any energy is the ability to quiet the mind, allowing your inner self, or intuition, to perceive truth. By practicing this art, we develop a sensitivity toward inner information and the ability to condition our mind to listen on a much more subtle level. This developing can allow us the ability to sense energy and actually perceive on an even more subconscious plane.

      Crystal therapy, when used in healing - will help to rebalance energy through placement of the crystals over the charkas.

      Red Stones: protection, courage, energy. Help with blood, relieve anemia, stop bleeding, heal rashes and wounds.

      Pink Stones: calm, soothe, stop distress, help with love. They smooth difficulties in relationships, help with self-love and are good for group rituals.

      Orange Stones: for personal power, self esteem. They are connected to the Sun, attract luck and success, assists in positive outcomes.

      Yellow Stones: communication, inspiration, protection, visualization, travel, digestion, nervous system, skin problems, breathing disorders.

      Green Stones: These are for healing. Eyes, kidneys, stomach, migraines, esp. Help with money, luck, prosperity, grounding and balance.

      Blue Stones: calm emotions, sleep, healing, ulcers and inflammation. Use them in the bath for purification.

      Purple Stones: mysticism, purification, meditation, psychic work, subconscious, health, obedience, headaches, mental illness, hair problems and sleep.

      White Stones: These are ruled by the Moon. Sleep, psychism, promote lactation, protection after dark, gets rid of headaches

      Black Stones: self control, grounding, resilience, quiet power, grounding, invisibility, peace, anxiety.

      Crystals will transform and balance energy fields, bringing a helpful harmony to the environment.
      Meditation and crystals are both tools to assist us on the journey of life.

      Yes V...I love working with crystals...I use them all around my home for everything from the TV etc! I have even used them under the bed when I had trouble sleeping.
      You are right about the gentle way they work and the deep rest you get form them....mind you...get a bit of malachite or obsidian used on someone stubbornly holding onto negative emotions, and you'll see some fireworks!!!

      I had a problem sleeping a few years back...lots of nightmares/re****ing stuff etc and I put a circle of amethysts under the bed. I slept like a baby and never had any issues really after that. The nightmares and everything stopped!
      I always have a piece of celestite besides me on the bedside locker as I love the angelic/celestial energy off it at night

      Crystal healing works on all levels and relates directly to organs and chakras.
      Crystals and gemstones have a similar vibrational energy to us, especially clear quartz. They work gently, unobtrusively and do not have to be believed in to work.
      They can be worn as jewellery or placed around the home depending on what you want to do with them.
      I am going to start listing some of the various crystals and the effect they have on the various bodies.
      If anyone has anything they wish to ask, please feel free and if I can, I'll answer it

      Default Amber

      Amber is technically not a gemstone or mineral, but a fossilized sap from prehistoric trees that has aged over the course of millions of years. Amber is usually thought of as yellow golden in hue, but amber also can be found in shades of milky white, red-orange, green, black and even (very rarely) violet.

      Early physicians prescribed amber for headaches, heart problems, arthritis and a variety of other ailments. In ancient times, amber was carried by travellers for protection. To early Christians, amber signified the presence of the Lord.

      In the Far East, amber is the symbol of courage; Asian cultures regard amber as the 'soul of the tiger'; Egyptians placed a piece of amber in the casket of a loved one to ensure the body would forever remain whole.

      Amber energy properties

      Brings a care free, sunny disposition
      Promotes good luck and success
      Dissolves oppositions
      Helps with stomach, spleen and kidney complaints
      Reduces joint problems
      Alleviates teething pain in babies

      Not to be worn too frequently above the waist. Earrings can be worn but not everyday as this can be a powerful stone and may give the wearer headaches after a while.

      Default Amethyst

      One of my personal favourite stones.

      Crystalline quartz in shades of purple, lilac or mauve is called amethyst, a stone traditionally worn to guard against drunkeness and to instill a sober mind. The word amethyst comes from the Greek meaning "without drunkenness" and amethyst is beleived to protect one from poison.

      Power Stone
      It is used as a dream stone and to help insomnia. Put an amethyst under your pillow to bring about pleasant dreams, or rub it across your forehead to offer relief from a headache.

      Protection Stone
      Ancient Egyptians used the amethyst guard against guilty and fearful feelings. It has been worn as protection from self-deception, as well as a protection against witchcraft. The amethyst has long been used to open the spiritual and psychic centers, making it one of the power stones. It is also used as a meditation aid when worn as a necklace.

      Wisdom Stone
      The amethyst is known as the Bishop's Stone and is still worn by Catholic Bishops. The amethyst symbolizes piety, humility, sincerity and spiritual wisdom. It is thought the amethyst is the perfect stone to symbolize The Age of Aquarius.

      Healing properties of Amethyst
      Amethyst is a gemstone often worn by healers, as it has the power to focus energy. A healer will usually wear several pieces of jewelry with amethysts set in silver, especially an amethyst necklace. The person to be healed will have an Amethyst to hold while the healing is being done. The healer will place another piece of Amethyst on the area of the body in need of healing, the heart or lungs usually.

      Amethyst is used for problems in the blood and in breathing problems. Amethyst crystal clusters are used to keep the air and life force in the home clean and positive.

      Amethyst clusters, points or several tumbled Amethysts placed in a window that receives sun most of the day are very beneficial to use in healing and to heal negativity in the home. Place Amethyst clusters, points or several tumbled Amethysts in moonlight and everyone in the home will be feeling calmer. Using an Amethyst as a meditation focus will increase the positive spiritual feelings. Amethyst helps overcome fears and cravings. It also helps relieve headaches.

      Default Azurite

      Another of my personal favourites....

      Azurite is formed from the oxidation of copper ores. Over time, as it absorbs water, it changes into the mineral malachite. Thus, the two are found together, creating a brilliant deep blue stone with flashes of green.

      The dark brilliance of azurite speeds the vibration of energy toward the spiritual realm.

      Azurite has a transformative quality that stimulates an increase in communication skills, intuition, creativity and inspiration.
      Place azurite on the third eye chakra during meditation. It will open up your inner sight. It is an excellent stone for students who are studying for exams. It helps open the mind and make it more receptive to retaining information.

      Healing properties of azurite

      Liver stimulant
      Aids detoxification
      Stimulates brain and nerve activity
      Encourages growth by stimulating the activity of the thyroid gland

      Use with copper to increase the power of azurite.

      Sources of azurite
      Azurite is found in copper mining areas such as Australia, Chile, the former USSR, Africa, China.

      Default Bloodstone

      Bloodstone (also called heliotrope) is green with distinctive red spots that resemble blood, giving this stone its name. The bloodstone was used to stop bleeding especially nosebleeds.

      There is a legend that says the bloodstone was formed from the blood of Christ dripping on the green earth and solidifying. It was also called heliotrope by the Greeks and was thought to bring change. The bloodstone has been used as an amulet to protect against the evil eye. Bloodstone is the symbol of justice.

      Healing properties of bloodstone
      The bloodstone is used for circulation of all energy in the body and helps to remove energy blocks. Bloodstone is used in the alignment of all the centers of the body. A healer must do this alignment while the patient lies on his stomach. It also aids in the circulation of blood. It is good to have several pieces of Bloodstone in the home to increase the flow of life energy.
