Crystals have been used for healing since ancient times by many different cultures. It is a holistic therapy, which means that the focus is on the individual as a whole, rather than on physical symptoms alone. The aim of this therapy is to restore wholeness, balance and health on levels of emotions, mind and spirit as well as the physical body.
Mankind has used crystals in various ways for centuries. In our modern world, crystals are used as part of vital components from computers to car engines, lasers to space shuttles.
The properties of crystals derive from their orderliness and the stability of their atomic structure. If subjected to some outside force such as heat, pressure, electricity or light, crystals are able to make minute adjustments to restore their internal stability. It is this quality that makes crystals so important in so many different areas of technology.
The present day interest in crystal healing is a continuation of mankind’s fascination with gemstones and minerals down through the ages. There has been no historical period, nor any culture that has not prized crystals for their visual, magical or healing properties. We ourselves do not exist separate from the mineral kingdom: All life has built up using the raw materials of the planet. Any mineral or crystal collection reflects what we have in our bodies – from iron crystals in our blood to minerals that crystallise in our bones. The minerals we take as food supplements and even the fertilisers we use in our fields and gardens are the same materials that exist in the crystal forms we use as decoration or as tools for healing.
When a body is unwell or diseased it is usually because the natural balance or rhythm has been lost. Using crystals with their perfect atomic structure offers patterns for the body to follow to help self-healing. The very nature of crystals increases the levels of harmony in the immediate environment.
