Natural crystals and gemstones have been used throughout history for their healing properties. Warriors used crystals and gemstones on their armor. Healers made elixirs from natural crystals and gemstones. Kings and Queens wore crystal and gemstone jewelry not only for their beauty, but for the natural healing energy they provided.
Now, a modern skeptic may say that it is impossible for a natural crystal to have any healing properties. Consider the science. Crystals transmit a piezoelectric charge which does affect the body’s biomagnetic fields. Crystals reflect and refract light, and light rays such as far infrared and ultraviolet are used to both heal and disinfect the body. And somehow crystals carry information or else every computer in the world would not have a silicon (crystal) chip inside. Even from
a scientific standpoint, it seems possible that natural healing crystals can influence physical functioning.
Let us also talk about beliefs. There is an old saying that what you believe is true for you. Every crystal and gemstone has a legend about it that speaks of its natural healing abilities. Rose quartz crystal is said to influence Love. Amethyst crystal, wisdom. Smoky quartz absorbs negativity, and on and on…. If I am looking for Love, and I carry or wear a natural healing rose quartz crystal and find Love, no one can say for certain whether the crystal, or my belief in the crystal, found Love for me. That’s the power of beliefs.
The beauty of natural healing crystals is next in our discussion. When we see or hold something that is beautiful, we relax. There is an “ahhhh” moment. Our attention is focused on the beauty and away from our worries and fears. This moment is very healing because we have turned off the sympathetic nervous systems “fight or flight” response and engaged the calm, relaxed parasympathetic system. Our entire body relaxes. It has been said that stress accounts for over 90% of all illness and accidents. One moment without stress heals.
When people visit our Labyrinth Park Welcome Center, they are immediately attracted to our natural healing crystals. Without knowing the type of crystal, or where it’s from, they reach into the crystal case and pull out a crystal, saying often, that’s mine! I found it! Here we are talking about the energy of the crystal. This Healing energy hasn’t been discovered by conventional medicine, but has been used throughout the ages. The same energy as found in Tai Chi, Chi Gong, Shamans, Native American Ceremonies, Churches, and Prayers. This unseen energy forms a halo around all matter, forms the matrix of all cells and tissues. This energy heals and we are attracted to what heals us.
Natural healing crystals express the unity of the four elements in their very being. Growing in the Earth, they suggest the mineral evolution of the planet. By their ability to transmit a piezo electric charge, they are natural expressions of Fire. Natural healing crystals are related to Water in both their molecular structure and their ice-like appearance. And just as Air lets light pass through its clarity, so do crystals. Their beauty speaks to the child within, and invites us to stop and allow the pure flow of energy to refresh and revitalize us. We hope you discover and enjoy your special crystal today!
