Crystal Therapy is the ancient art of laying-on-of-stones as opposed to the art of laying-on-of-hands (Reiki Therapy). In alternative healing Chakras are the seven main energy centers of the body according to Eastern medicine. They are in the center of the body, starting at the base of the spine and running up the top of the head.
Gems, stones and crystals are laid on the body over one or all of the chakra points. Crystals and crystal therapy brings color and light into the aura and into the physical body via the chakra system and the subtle layers of the body through the principle of vibration and resonance.
Because each chakra resonates to a particular color, placing a stone of that color over the chakras will open them, thereby aligning and blending them with each other. When the chakra system is balanced, the physical body is able to self-correct and heal innately.
Crystals can also be used in specific grid patterns in various forms of sacred geometry. These sacred geometric grids create pillars of light opening the body to multi-dimensional awareness and understanding. Used in conjunction with aromatherapy and sound, the color light experience of crystals are deepened and expanded at the same time.
Crystals are one of the tools of vibration and resonance that create sensory healing.
While gemstone therapy's loose association with astrology and religion has not helped to further its development as a healing institution, its emphasis on energy is becoming increasingly compatible with many other alternative medicine disciplines.
Crystal Therapy is an ancient art, originating in Egypt thousands of years ago. Some believe it is even older, beginning in the ancient civilization of Atlantis or possibly even Lemuria. Certainly, gems were important in Jesus' day because they are referred to many times in the Bible. Wherever it began, these extraordinary gifts from our precious Earth have once again re-emerged to help us at the dawn of our planet's desire for healing.
Gemstones have fascinated mankind since prehistoric times. Beyond their intrinsic beauty, these special crystals can somehow focus the miraculous hidden energy of the universe. New disclosures on the effects of gemstones have been made available through trance "channelers," who have brought back information lost thousands, even millions of years ago about crystal therapy.
Although many of the beneficial effects of gemstones are not directly explained by our limited knowledge of the physical world, we do know that all gemstones possess a crystalline structure. Crystalline structures can collect, focus, and emit electromagnetic energy. Scientists have long known that a crystal set in an energy field will collect and focus that energy. They also know that if a crystal is squeezed, it will release its own internal energy (the piezoelectric effect). Yet science is not even close to understanding how truly powerful crystals are in the more important task of focusing life energy.
Of all the natural crystals, Quartz is perhaps the master gemstone. Most of our planet is made up of minerals containing silicon dioxide. Silicon dioxide is also an important constituent of our body, which may be the physical basis for our connection to crystals. The transfer of energy from the natural crystal to our body's silicon could have something to do with healing. Each mineral crystal has its special influence, function, and vibration. There are no two crystals exactly alike. The energy emitted by gemstones can be tapped as long as the wearer chooses to make use of the stone. Natural gemstones do not lose their power with age or use. Their energy comes from the cosmos and, once activated, is eternal. Natural gemstones and crystals are stronger in their powers than those that are synthetic (man-made).
Human bodies are surrounded by an electromagnetic field that is sometimes visible in known as Kirlian photographs. This field is often charged with electricity. Gemstones also have their fields of electricity that, when worn on the body or carried in close proximity to a person, will affect the body of the person and their well being.
