One staple of healing is the use of crystals. There is an abundant amount of crystals of all colours to work with. They all help with different mental, physical, and spiritual issues. There are a number of good books on the market to choose from that explain what healing properties each crystal has. Two that spring to mind are “Love is in the Earth”, by Melody, and “The Encyclopedia of Crystals” by Judy Hall. The “Encyclopedia of Crystals” has pictures and is organized by stone colour, so is a bit more helpful with identifying the name and properties of any crystal you may have in hand. There are also a number of websites that would explain the properties and healing uses of each crystal.
Crystals can be used in conjunction with other healing modalities in order to concentrate the energies to specific areas of the body, or specific energy centres, or just to add something more to whatever transformation is occurring, without being targeted to a specific body area, or energy centre. I’ve had crystals used on me in conjunction with a sound healing session using tuning forks. The crystals were placed beneath the massage table in a specific geometric pattern. This geometric pattern would probably have been of significance to the practitioner as something out of the teachings of sacred geometry. I can’t speak with any certainty, but I believe the crystals and the geometric pattern chosen were for the augmenting of the energies used in the transformation, and to facilitate the ease of release of any patterns of energy that did not serve the client…me, that is.
Crystals are a topic that requires much further exploration as it is quite an in-depth subject, for besides healing and transformation, they can be used in Magick ritual, meditation, shamanic journeying, energetic protection, and even blessing.
