The Art of Crystal Healing
Posted on December 19 2019
The healing and positive power of crystals have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations (and maybe even your neighbors). Crystal healing is a belief that semi-precious stones hold a unique power to help heal the body and mind or power our intentions. This “power” has been used by shamans and gurus, or those who practice earth-based religions such as Wiccans and Druids. Although there is no definitive or scientific proof to back these claims, those who practice the art of crystal healing believe that the power lies in the beholder.
With that in mind, I have designed a unique line of pieces where I transform nature's most basic elements into stunning accessories meant to celebrate life and the world around us.
Crystal Healing Basics
According to practitioners, semi-precious stones and crystals such as amethyst or quartz contain vibrations and energy that connect us to the Earth. These vibrations help us channel and manifest particular intentions in our lives. They also help us connect with the Earth. Quartz alone makes up 12% of the Earth's outer crust.
The work of Marcel Vogal, an IBM researcher for 27 years, claims that while viewing the form of liquid crystals and imagining the Virgin Mary, the shape of the crystals eventually changed to form a vision of the Madonna. He theorized that crystals have the power to transfer thoughts and energy from the human body.
How do Crystals Work?
By holding a crystal or keeping it on your person, the stones can interact with your Chakras. Chakra is a Sanskrit term, and it means "wheel" or "disk." It is the term used to describe the wheels of energy that flow within all living things. The human body has seven different Chakra energies, and crystals can amplify these and help focus your intentions.
Choosing the Right Crystal
When shopping at Gogh Jewelry Designs, some people may know precisely what healing crystals they need, while others have no idea what to choose. You can check out our quick reference guide on our website to help you decide which stones are best for the intention you wish to bring into your life.
Once I Choose a Crystal, What Do I Do with It?
Before you start wearing your healing crystals, you'll need to cleanse and "program" it first. To cleanse your crystals, you can use a variety of methods, but burning sage or placing it the sun or full moon for a few hours should do the trick. This method will take away any previous programming or negative energy that the stone might be holding onto.
Once they have been cleansed, hold your crystal or crystal jewelry in your hands, and take deep breaths. Focus on the intentions you want, such as positive thinking, fortune, or even love. Focus on your faith, whatever that may be, and chant either out loud or in your head, "I desire this crystal to hold the intention of . . ." and finish the sentence with your personal needs. Do this at least three to five times.
