What is Crystal Healing ? Back to top
The combination of gentle crystal energy and your own powerful imagination can be used to improve your life in many ways by meditation, therapy, everyday health, dowsing, chakra balancing or lithomancy.
Crystal healing uses crystals or gemstones. The crystals are placed on specific areas of the body called "chakras." Chakra is a Hindu term meaning spiritual energy. There are seven basic energy centres in the body, each having a colour associated with it. The same colour crystal as the colour of the chakras can be placed on the person to enhance the flow of energy.
Crystals are direct the flow of energy to the person in a particular part of the
body and balance energy. They are used to cleanse the person from negative
energy believed to cause illness. Clearing out the bad spiritual energy
alleviates the physical ailment. Crystals are used for physical, mental,
emotional and spiritual healing. Crystals can also be worn, placed next to a
person's bed as they sleep, or placed around the house.
There are several methods that can be used to clear and cleanse your crystals before doing any healing work, as well as periodic cleaning to maintain their positive energy. Many benefits can be gained by the subtle use of crystals and gemstones. All you need is your imagination. However, if you require specialist advice consult a crystal therapist.

Meditation Back to top
Quartz crystal is a powerful mineral and has a very good link with the consciousness.
A quartz crystal is ideal but you are by no means limited to a clear quartz. Use any coloured crystal you feel happy with.
To develop concentration~ place your crystal a few feet away at eye level. Breathe deep and slow. Concentrate on your crystal, its shape and size. Banish all unbidden thoughts. Gradually extend your concentration times.
To develop willpower~ Set your crystal as before. Close your eyes and imagine the shape of your crystal. See yourself enter the crystal where you are surrounded by white light and absorb the warmth of the sun. Breathe in the light and warmth and charge your aura. After 5-15 minutes leave the crystal.
To develop intuition~
sit down and relax, breathe deeply. Place a clear crystal a few feet away at about eye level. Close your eyes and
visualize this crystal. Imagine it rising and moving away until it is large enough to enter. Enter to be surrounded by white/yellow light full of energy. Feel yourself lift and feel your own energy. Inhale the warmth of the sun and feel love, light and energy. Breathe and exhale and become more relaxed. Leave the crystal and hold a clear mind. Relax and listen to your intuition. It will communicate any messages through any of your chakra channels.
Lie down on your back and place an Amethyst quartz above your head. Concentrate on your breathing. Hold your breath to the count of four. Breathe out naturally to the count of eight. Hold for four and repeat.
Concentrate on the colour of the Amethyst and see the colour flooding through you slowly from the head down as you breathe. As the colour reaches every part relax these muscles.
Chakara Balancing Back to top
Ancient peoples have long believed in the seven energy centers located in our bodies, all located along the spine. Chakras are the source of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy. They relate to colour and using crystals can bring a healing effect. The word chakra is derived from Sanskrit meaning wheel. If you could see chakra energy is would be like a wheel around us, it is believed people become ill because their chakras become out of balance, apart from the seven major chakras listed below their are dozens of minor ones.

Dowsing Techniques Back to top
A crystal or any balanced weight on a string 3-4 inches long makes a pendulum. It is used for asking yes or no questions.
You must discover your own positions for "search," "yes" and "no."
Search position~ this indicates the pendulum's state of readiness. For some dowsers a motionless pendulum indicates readiness, for others if it oscillates back and forth.
To establish your own position~ Take a seat and hold the pendulum between your knees and state "show me the search position." It will say "I'm ready." If you have no movement a motionless position is your search position.
