Crystals have been used by our ancestors, medicine people, healers and shamans around the world for thousands of years. Their recorded use dates back over 5,000 years in Chinese text on traditional medicine, Ayurvedic texts from India, and the Bible, which was over 200 references to crystals and their powers. Crystals have been found around the world in prehistoric graves of different cultures, from the Olmec civilization in Central America to those of the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt.
How Crystals Work:
There are many explanations as to how crystals work mystical, magical, scientific, and pseudo-scientific. Science has proven that crystals vibrate and they exhibit both piezoelectric (the ability of a crystals to generate a voltage in response to mechanical stress) and pyroelectric (the ability of a crystals to generate an electrical potential in response to temperature change) effects. Crystals have also been shown to hold both heat and electricity and to focus light energy. Due to this special ability Quartz Crystal can be used to transmit radio waves, used in watches, memory technology, and the development of lasers.
What is Crystal Healing?
Crystals are channels of energy, they direct the light or vibration that goes through them. Crystals focus, transmute, transmit, and store energy. Crystal healing involves using crystalline energy to improve your physical health, mental health, emotional well-being, and your spiritual advancement. Crystals will not do something that your body naturally cannot do, but they will speed up the process of healing and your body’s ability to repair itself.
