What is Crystal Healing?

By LiveWell Community

Welcome to the world of crystals!

Crystal healing dates back to hundreds of years, as part of alternative medicine used for therapeutic purposes.  The first written accounts of crystal healing came from the ancient Egyptians.  They were used as protection against negativity, worn as jewellery.  Crystals are known for having a positive and healing effect on our mental and physical wellbeing.  Coming in many shapes and colours, each crystal contains different properties and benefits.  Therefore its important to find the right crystal for you!  Here we introduce you to the basics of crystal healing. 


How does crystal healing work?

Crystals can absorb, focus, direct, detoxify, shift and diffuse energy. 

They interact with the electromagnetic forces and the subtle energies of the human energy field.  This can affect the body and mind in a positive way.  Its crystal magic!  The energy systems in our body can become stagnant or blocked, causing illness.  Crystals can be placed around certain areas of the body to provide healing.  Likewise, just holding or being around crystals can help to uplift and cleanse our energy.  Crystal healing has no negative side effects, and can provide many benefits.  From increasing wellbeing, vitality, self esteem and inspiring a sense of peace and calmness within.  Who knew a stone could be so powerful? 

Crystals and The Chakras

Chakras are the different energy centres of the body.  An energy whirlpool. The seven chakras are;

  • Root
  • Sacral
  • Solar Plexus
  • Heart, Throat
  • Third Eye
  • Crown

In modern crystal healing, crystals work with the chakra system to realign, rebalance and energise the chakras, therefore helping energy to flow through them.  Each colour Chakra is represented by a corresponding colour crystal.


How to find the right crystal for you?

Finding the right crystal can be overwhelming.  However, you can see what crystal or colour you feel naturally drawn too.  Listen to your instinct.  This can be a sign from our subconscious that this crystal contains something we need.  However, if you have a specific problem you need help with you can research the best crystal for it.  Different crystals are associated with different body parts and chakras.  So one crystal can work better for you than another.  Therefore we will be diving deeper into each crystal and how it can help you in our blogs to come. 

How to use them?

Crystals can be placed over a specific area to help in healing a specific problem.  They can be placed over the chakras or simply just held in the palm of your hand.  However just having crystals around the home helps to increase the energy in your surroundings, or wearing crystal jewellery gives you a healing boost on the go!  Crystals are personal to each individually and ultimately, it's up to you how you use them!
