An Introduction to Healing Crystals by Mystic Wish
This crystal healing guide will teach you how to use crystals to solve common illnesses and to improve your daily life. Only crystal healing can allow you to harness the natural energies of the world to make yourself healthier of mind and body – this guide will show you how.
For this first part of this crystal healing guide, the 7 major energies (known as chakras) of the body will be shown. They are, in order, red for stability, orange for creativity and desire, yellow for ambition and intelligence, pink for compassion and love, blue for communication, indigo for spiritual awareness and violet for divine consciousness.
Each of these Energies has a specific Chakra Point on the Body:
Violet – crown of the head.
Indigo – forehead (just above and between the eyebrows)
Yellow – Slightly above the naval
Orange – Slightly below the naval – solar plexus,
Light Blue – throat
Green– Pink – middle of the chest
Red – base of the spine,
This crystal healing guide only discusses the major 7 energies, there are thousands of other lesser energies for other aspects.
How do these Energies Relate to Crystals?
The body processes wild energy through eating and breathing. However, using crystals, you can rapidly speed up the absorption of these energies.
The Crystal Process is Simple
Place the crystal on its appropriate chakra point, and allow your mind to focus on the crystals. Closing your eyes and staying in a comfortable environment will help. By breathing in and out steadily, your chakra will synchronise with each crystal and can absorb the beneficial energy they provide.
The crystals are absorbing the ambient energy and turning it into its own colour – red crystals provide ‘red’ energy, blue crystals provide ‘blue’ energy and so on. Crystals can also be worn passively as jewelery (for similar but less profound effects).
The next part of this crystal healing guide discusses which crystals you should use. The answer depends on what change you would like to see. Using healing crystals, you will find your mind more acute, that your body is healthier and that exercise will have more benefits for less work.
Your body and mind will notice the difference after the first treatment! However, you can emphasise the right energy based on your specific need. If you find yourself having trouble sharing your thoughts, blue communication energy may be useful, while ambitious yellow energy may help you get that promotion you always wanted.
Some good starter crystals include amethyst, aquamarine, carnelian, garnet and clear quartz. However, the best combination depends on the individual – experiment with many different types to find the best effect! Now with this introductory healing crystal guide, you are all set to improve your life with the power of healing crystals.
