Crystals are often referred to as Nature’s gift to humankind that augment healing. Crystals are found in all shapes, sizes, colours and composition. Each crystal has a unique vibrational resonance. They owe their unique qualities to their mineral content, their inherent geometry and the colour frequency they emit. These are powerful aids in just about any form of energy healing.
The earliest records of Crystal Healing can be traced back more than 5000 years ago to Ancient Egypt. India’s Ayurvedic records and traditional Chinese medicine also claim healing with the use of crystals, dating back to 5000 years ago. Crystal Healing has been used in many different cultures throughout history, including the Hopi Native Americans of Arizona and the Hawaiian islanders, some of whom still use them to this day.
The great mystic of the Middle Ages, Hildergard von Bingen (1098 – 1179), in her work Physika devoted much thought to the healing powers of stones. He employed many stones whose healing or protective virtues are referred to in the Holy Scripture. (see Revelations 21:18-21)
A little handbook Liber Lapidum Seu De Gemmis written by the Benedictine, Marbod, Bishop of Rennes was translated into four languages and went through fourteen editions between 1511 to 1799.
Earliest reports of the use and influence of stones or crystals on the human body can be found in Sumerian writings (4000BC). And in the Red Emperor, Shen Nung’s medical book written 5000 years ago.
Healing stones exist in various forms, including rough stones, tumbled stones, and jewelry. They are found in many colour variations, depending on the traces of metals and minerals that they contain.
A Crystal treatment promotes peace and tranquility, reduces mental and nervous stress and improves general well-being.
