How can Crystals & Stones help me?
People are generally skeptical towards the healing qualities within crystals, as they are unaware that using crystals for healing has dated back to early time in history. While most people feel that this is "new age" and some form of "magic" or "occult", what they don't realize is that many of the crystals that we know of today actually have their roots in ancient civilizations, and it was revered and considered powerful in those times.
Now, crystals are used by many for personal healing as well as to help the healing of others. As per my explanation of tarot readings and dreamcatchers, these are tools that Mother Earth and Universe provide to us to help make our lives better. There isn't any need to associate religions to the use of crystals as they are for the healing of the body, mind, and soul.
To start, we must first understand the origin of crystals. The word "crystal" are from the Greek "krustallos" meaning "ice". Many ancient civilizations thought of these natural creations as something powerful and thus, using them as talismans and amulets to protect and heal.
When we talk about crystals, we must mention both their vibrations and healing properties together. Crystals are said to have "vibrations" or "frequencies" at which they vibrate in. Basically, different colored and compositions vibrates differently. Each unique frequencies help to balance the environment, our chakras, the basic fundamental aspects of our beings. It's interesting to note that in both Western and Asian communities uses crystals in their everyday lives. The nearest community that you could use as reference are the Chinese, where crystals placement in home and work are considered important fengshui while it is also worn as bracelets (some with mystical creatures, such as pixiu) to boost or clear the negative energies.
Also, as different crystals has different frequencies, it is the same when it comes to their healing properties. Crystals can be used to heal both physical and mental ailments. In fact, there are many crystals that have properties that heal of these areas. Some heal specific parts of the body (this is based on which chakra the crystal is associated with, and usually colors play a part as well), while others can also provide general healing such as pain relief. For example, Rose Quartz is known as the stone of universal love as it restores trust and harmony in relationships, encouraging unconditional love. It also purifies and open the heart to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace. People who lacks self-confidence or searching for love, are advised to wear or carry love quartz with them to promote the energy within and around them so that they may benefits from it.
I've mentioned earlier about Chinese's belief of fengshui which also relates to the placement of the crystals & crystals worn on the body - it's because where the crystals are placed and how it is used is an important as aspect to consider. They can be placed on specific parts of the body, worn as necklaces and other jewelry, placed in pockets or pouches, or they can be placed throughout a home to bring positive vibrations to the space. These depends on how each individual choose to use the crystals for themselves. Of course, crystal elixirs can also be made so that you can benefit by drinking water infused with the vibrations of the crystals. I personally have an Amethyst infused bottle, which I carries with me all the time. It helps me to maintain peace and keep my calm as I go about my day. However it is very important that you place special care and attention to the type of crystals that you use, as some crystals are toxic and cannot be consumed, while others are too soft and will break down in the water itself. So always do your research well before you start.
I must not forget to mention how crystals are often used to aid in meditation. Placed in the left hand (as left hand symbolize absorption of energy, while right hand symbolize getting rid of energy) or in specific chakra hand positions, these crystals can help to energize, align and balance the body to bring it in harmony with all of its surroundings. Some crystals can also help you engage in deeper meditation and thought.
Crystals are also powerful tools for divination, where many different methods (such as scrying, using pendulum, or using a divination board with crystals) uses crystals to look into the past, present and future events.
In short, as there are many practical uses for crystals in our daily lives, if you are interested to find out more, get a beginner set to familiarize yourself with their energies and do lots and lots of readings to truly understand their purpose and benefits. One doesn't have to start big - just buying one small piece and keeping it with you in your pocket or wear a bracelet or two, to notice the difference is enough. For the truth is, crystals are powerful, wonderful healers as they are gifts from Mother Earth to us. It can be beneficial to you in all aspects of your life if you are willing to give them a try.
Crystals sold on D' Lemurian Mermaid Tarot are authentic, ranging from mid- to high-grades. I got started on my crystals collection as I was curious of their energies and benefits, and I've gotten hooked since then. And thus, I decided to share my latest passion to you. I will only carry one or two max for each item shown in my store, so it will be on first-come-first-served basis. As crystals are natural stone, do expect some imperfection within them - a stone that's too perfect are usually a fake. Which brings me to another topic, I will be sharing to you on how to identify fake stones next, which I hope will help you out in your crystals purchase. Cheers!
