Are you feeling low? Stuck in a rut? Lot of negativity? Looking for love? There is a single solution to any problem life throws at you! Crystals. Beauty brands are infusing their serums with rose quartz, the jade rollers and gua-shas are a thing for naturally enhanced beauty, there are crystal infused water bottles and much more! With a lot of celebrities taking the crystal route, we were curious to know what this was all about and met Holly Aldhebaiei, founder of Holly Holistic, for a crystal reading session. Read all about it in our 3-part feature.
Essentially, a crystal healing session helps to stimulate the body’s energy flow to restore balance and help the body heal itself. When there is a blockage or disharmony within the energetic body, it can very often manifest into a physical or emotional illness or imbalance. Therefore, energy healing is hugely beneficial for the wellbeing of all three bodies: emotional, physical and spiritual.
“For the normal crystal consultation, there will be a wider array of questions and I choose more crystals and tell you how to use them. It is not compulsory to be there in person as learning about the client through a questionnaire easily enables me to research suitable crystals, along with my intuition for the best combos through their zodiac sign, current situation, and also, I take time to meditate and choose intuitively on each client,” says Holly.
Crystals have been used throughout all of history as a source of healing power. Ancient cultures all over the world used healing crystals and stones to align, clear and transform their energy, spirit and physical health. If you’re a beginner in the world of crystals, a great way to harness their healing power is to use their energy to strategically manifest
and create what you want and need in your life. When it comes to crystal basics, these natural formations connect us to the Earth because they are tangible, physical forms that have powerful vibrations. Their energy continues to connect with you when you wear these healing crystals close to the skin or place them in your environment. With every thought and intention, these crystals pick up on your unique vibrational energy and amplify the positive vibes that you’re cultivating. In this amazing world of vibrations, crystal energy will help you on your spiritual journey because it works to hold your intention and remind you of your connection to the Earth.
If you’re looking to heal some aspect of your mind, body or spirit, there are essentially 3 primary ways healing crystals can transform your energy and resolve imbalance:
Clearing – Crystals have the ability to absorb and remove certain types of energy from your body. Like a magnet can pick up little pieces of metal shavings, a healing crystal can absorb negative energy from your body.
Energizing – Healing crystals and stones can also push energy into your body, mind or spirit through inducing resonant frequencies. This is similar to the way electricity works by conducting and transferring energy into an object. A crystal can harness energy from the quantum field and send it into your own energy field. Don’t worry, unlike electricity, this crystal healing energy is painless and not dangerous.
Balancing – Our world is very symmetrical. Look at the leaves on trees or even your body. The energy of our planet aligns things in a mirrored pattern. Sometimes, your energy may be misaligned and out of balance, and healing crystals can use the properties mentioned above, which are essentially attracting and repelling, to balance out areas of energetic disharmony.
Best Ways to Use Your Crystals
Wear Healing Crystals
Not only does crystal healing jewelry look good, but it makes you feel great as well! When wearing healing bracelets, make sure you wear it on the hand that you want the crystal to correspond to.
Since crystals and stones absorb, repel and transmit energy, wearing healing crystals chosen for you can help you balance your energy field throughout the day. They promote general overall well-being, both physically and mentally, while raising energy.
They provide clarity and discernment which assists in being able to make better decisions as well as healing and stabilization of emotions.
They protect you from negative thoughts, people, and even physical spaces, including psychic protection.
Place Healing Crystals on a Specific Part of the Body
Anyone familiar with crystal healing is probably familiar with this type of healing—the laying of stones. If you’re looking for a very direct, specific application, placing crystals on that part of your body is an excellent way to access their healing properties. For example, when you get a burn, you apply a burn ointment to the wound. If you have a headache, you might sit quietly with a quartz crystal on the spot of your pain.
Meditate with Them
Healing stones and crystals are often millions of years old, and they contain a lot of information about our history. By sitting with crystals and quieting your mind during meditation, you are often able to intuitively receive amazing, life-changing insights by simply holding an energetic piece of history like that in your hands during the process.
Sleep with Them at Night
Our subconscious minds take over when we’re sleeping, and it’s a great time to heal and learn at an accelerated pace. Allowing healing crystals to work while you’re sleeping can eliminate any hurdles your rational mind might be presenting with fear or doubt. Try placing crystals under your pillow or on your bedside table and see how they affect your dreams and how you feel when you wake up in the morning.
Place Them in your Sacred Space
Crystals are beautiful to keep in your space and naturally made from the Earth, they’re nature’s little pieces of art. When we bring crystals into our homes, we bring the Earth element in as well and create a more nurturing environment. We all want our space to be a happy, positive, and peaceful place to be, so it’s important for it to be filled with good energy. Crystals can help with this by cleansing your space of its bad energies and enhancing the positive energy and atmosphere of your home.
Use a Crystal Grid
When you use a crystal grid, you lay out specific types of crystals and stones in a predetermined pattern. These patterns are designed to receive and transmute energy. Using a crystal grid is an ancient healing technique and it can take time to learn all the different types of grids, but most people find it to be worth it as it is an extremely powerful practice.
Which Hand do I use to Work with Crystals?
The general rule is that the left hand receives energy and the right hand sends it out. During meditation, when you want to receive the healing effects of crystal, it is best to hold your crystal in the left hand and feel the energy flowing, you should feel a tingly or hotter sensation.
