THE MOST ORDERLY STRUCTURES IN NATURE
The first method of healing is to cure the spirit; the second is
to give knowledge of how to restore the body.
~ Nei Ching
Crystals are millions of years old, forged during the earliest parts of earth’s formation. They are the most orderly structure that exists in nature, meaning they have the lowest amount of entropy (a measurement for disorder). Crystals are structured in such a way that they respond to the inputs of all different energies around them, leading them to oscillate and emit specific vibratory frequencies. Because the crystal lattice is so balanced and orderly, the energy it emits is consistent, and when dissonant energy is inputted, it is balanced and transformed into a harmonic energy.
The disease can be seen as an imbalance or blockage in our energy flow. It starts in the energy field and then becomes transmuted to the level where it manifests as a physical condition. The cause of the disease is often related to psychological or physical trauma or both. In order for healing to take place, there has to be a rebalancing of the energy body.
Crystal healing works on the principle that every cell in the body vibrates at a specific frequency. When these frequencies change from the natural resonant frequency (our “healthy state”), we become ill. Crystals also oscillate at their own natural frequency. The natural healing frequency of the crystal is activated by the healer’s intention. The crystal then transmits and amplifies the correct frequency to the cells in the body that require balancing. Then, following the laws of resonance, these cells are returned to their normal base frequency which will then bring the body back into harmony and restore health.
Crystals in a Context of Healing
Crystals are living beings in the beginning of creation.

Other Uses of Crystals
You can use crystals in order to alter the climate of a room e.g. Amethyst geode or Smokey Quartz which will attract negative energy and transmute it into light.
Slices of crystals such as Agate make gorgeous wind chimes and the soothing sounds they make are calming.
Tumbled crystals are pretty and smooth while highly beneficial to carry in your pocket as, depending on the stone, they positively affect the subtle energy body. For example, carrying tourmaline repels negative energy, so carrying this when you know you will be faced with negativity in certain circumstances in your day will help you.
A thumb stone (or worry stone) is a crystal tumbled with an indentation for you to rub with your thumb. This helps to soothe and calm.
Jewelry is an excellent way to wear healing crystals. Common forms used are pendants, crystals pierced and threaded like beads on a necklace or in earrings.
Wearing or carrying healing crystals are ways of keeping the stone close to your body for a long period. They need to be carried or worn until there is a clear improvement in the situation.
“Donuts” are flat, round crystals with a hole in the middle which are usually worn to bring good luck. In the past, amber was often worn in this way to bring the wearer luck.
Crystal pyramids are used to concentrate energy, recharge other crystals and as a means of drawing energy into an area.
Crystal spheres can be used for meditation and healing.
Wands are made of metal or wood, with a crystal on one or both ends. These are mainly used for healing, but can also be used in acupressure massage.
Gem essences are made by infusing water with crystal energy. The resultant essence can be taken internally, applied externally or used in poultices, infusions, and baths.
