What is Crystal Healing? I promise, crystals are not just rocks!
I began working with crystals in 2010. It started with the large quartz crystal I received as a gift from my Reiki teacher when I became a Reiki Master. If I noticed a client feeling anxious I would have them hold the crystal, then do some deep breathing techniques. This combination always reduced their anxiety, bringing them back and allowing them to enjoy their session again.
As time went on, I got a few other crystals that corresponded with the colors of the chakras and would periodically use them during Reiki sessions. I could tell energetically that they enhanced the experience, not just for my clients, but also for me.
I thought I needed to know all the metaphysical aspects of crystals. And wow there are so many! And sometimes, the information out there is conflicting. This book says one thing. That book says another. And then you google the info and you're just bombarded with descriptions! The good news is - we don't need to know or memorize all the properties! And some crystals resonate with one person but not with another. Crystals and stones are as individual as people are.
In 2019, as I began my manifestation and self-expansion journey, the opportunity to become a Certified Crystal Practitioner (CCP) was presented to me. What I appreciated about the program I too through the Hibiscus Moon Academy was the science behind crystals. There is scientific proof that crystals create energy. That crystals and stones are made up of minerals which can have a profound effect on us mentally, emotionally, physically, and even spiritually. And as I began to collect more, practice more, learn more, and experience more, I was able to witness the legitimate benefit they were having for my clients and the work that we do together.
When I read clearly biased articles about crystal healing, they always say that we crystal healers claim to be able to heal diseases and such. Where do they get this information? An honest healer will never claim to be able to "heal" anything!
What crystals and stones do is simply raise the vibration, or the frequency, of the work that is done during a session. They actually help you and I work a little less harder in our session because crystals are doing some of the work for us! When a chakra is blocked and Reiki alone isn't clearing the blockage, placing a crystal or stone over that chakra and doing some specific cleansing work in that area, increases the clearing of that chakra significantly. For those who are sensitive to energetic vibration, they will no doubt feel the healing qualities of the crystals on them during their session. For those who are not as in tune, they will "feel something" but may not be able to put those feelings into words. At least not the first time!
Are you a skeptic? That's okay. I'm cool with that. But I invite and encourage you to experience a session before you officially make a final decision on whether crystal healing works or not. You may walk away going "Meh, whatever!" or you may walk away feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and just a tad bit curious. And there isn't anyone I know who wouldn't want to experience the latter!
