Crystal Energy

Crystals are a beautiful gift from nature, used in healing practices and personal/spiritual development.  In the simplest of terms, we use them for two main functions; healing which tends to encompass the merging of healing powers of a few crystals together; or self development of a particular aspect using an appropriate crystal’s energy.

Detailed below are just some of the crystals that you can use to help. Some crystals have singular abilities and others can be used for multi properties such as quartz. The list below is not exhaustive but certainly enough to get you started. I would suggest Healing Crystals – The A-Z Guide – by Michael Gienger for a more detailed understanding of each crystal and its healing properties or a very comprehensive guide the Crystal Bible by Judy Hall. I highly recommend both books, but you may feel drawn to one in particular.

How to Use Crystals

You can either use the crystal energy by holding the crystal during meditation or by wearing it as a piece of jewellery. In addition, you can also place crystals strategically around the home.

Chakra Healing

Chakras are wheels of light located all over our body. We have thousands of them but the seven major ones are located along our spine from its base to the crown of the head. Each chakra is represented by a colour of the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

  • Crown Chakra – Top of Head – Violet
  • Third Eye/Brow Chakra – Above & between eyebrows – Indigo
  • Throat Chakra – Base of throat – Blue
  • Heart Chakra – Centre of chest – Green
  • Solar Plexus Chakra – Just above navel – Yellow
  • Sacral Chakra – Just below navel – Orange
  • Root/Base Chakra – Base of spine – Red

Chakras are like the power stations of our body, bringing it to life, and keeping it healthy. Each chakra is associated with different parts of us and they need to spin totally in balance for us to feel good.  Chakra sets are readily available from any number of stores similar to the images below.

Cleansing & Charging

As a footnote I need to mention cleansing and charging. Crystals are energy sources and will pick up energy on their way into your life and home.  As a rule of thumb always cleanse any crystals under a quick source of running water.  I have used tap water for years.  Run them under the tap and pat them dry or better still leave them to dry in full sunlight or moonlight.  Just like mini batteries they are charged under full natural light, day or night will do.
