It is believed that crystals all hold a unique type of energy and vibrate at different frequencies. These various energies are used in crystal healing to open and balance different parts of the mind, body and spirit.

Despite Crystal healing being considered a pseudoscience as there are no peer-reviewed scientific studies (that I am aware of), key figures throughout history like Albert Einstein have spoken openly about this energy.

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

– Albert Einstein

Throughout history, crystal healing, known as lapidary medicine has been used to diagnose illnesses, provide protection and promote healing. Throughout millennia, presumably through trial and error, healers have identified which crystal energies work best with varying parts of the mind, body and spirit. This is why when you visit a crystal shop, you will find little bowls of crystals with a name card advising the various crystal meanings.

Just because you can’t see energy… doesn’t mean it’s not there!

Let’s do a quick experiment to see if you can feel energy. Place your hand close to your forehead (but not touching) and close your eyes. Concentrate on the outer edges of your hand that are closest to your forehead. Leave it there until you feel the warmth, then really slowly pulls your hand away. Can you feel the energy between your hands and your forehead? Kind of like a forcefield expanding around your head. Keep practicing and soon you will be able to feel the energy being pulled out of your head.

Don’t have time to be pulling energy out of your body? That’s where Crystals come in. Crystals give off energy, can absorb energy or move stagnant/ blocked energies inside your mind and body. They basically do the work for you.

Remember to always cleanse your crystals by placing it in moonlight because when a crystal is full of energy, it will start leaking and you don’t want to be taking that bad energy back in or passing it onto other people in the home.

So place a citrine in your coin purse for wealth, put a rose quartz under your pillow for loving vibes and black obsidian at your front door for protection and allow in that magical crystal energy enter your life.
