Healing Crystals


Crystals can be used to bring body, mind, emotion and spirit back into harmony through their vibration and mineral constituents. Crystals gently interact with our energy field to calm, stimulate or adjust our flow of energy to bring us back into balance on all levels, thereby putting the body in a optimal state for healing.

A simple technique for crystal healing is to place a crystal by the affected chakra or body part for about 20 minutes daily. As you get more advanced in your use of crystals, you can program your crystal with an intention/information and use sacred geometry and colour therapy techniques to enhance effectiveness. InnerVitality offers a wonderful Crystal Therapy Treatment you may enjoy.

Trust your instincts. If you are in a crystal shop, sense which crystal(s) you are naturally drawn to and that feel good in your palm. Each crystal has a unique energy field ~ you’ll notice that certain crystals will ‘speak to you’ or you may feel an ideal temperature or tingling in your hand when you touch it. Research which crystals are good for any ailments/situations you are experiencing. If you find yourself repelled by one of the listed crystals when you feel its energy or view it…connect in and intuit whether it is actually a good fit for you (sometimes we are repelled by what we most need in order to heal). You may also wish to use a pendulum or muscle testing to determine whether a crystal will be beneficial for you to work with.

Buy your crystals from a reputable supplier, preferably in-store, or if you prefer to order on-line, get a referral from someone else who has used that particular company.

Crystals love to be stored in sunlight and open spaces. When transporting your crystal, store it in a natural fabric such as silk or cotton, and/or a wood container. Remember to protect the points of crystals (and never aim a pointed end directly at a person or animal without previous training in the use of crystals).

After using a crystal in healing, or after bringing a crystal out of storage, you will want to cleanse it by:

  • Placing it in the sun (some crystals alternatively do well in the moonlight)
  • Performing Reiki on it or visualizing white light surrounding it
  • Using your breath or smudging (ie. sweetgrass or sage) to clear it
  • Placing it near a Quartz Crystal or inside a Geode
  • Covering it in sea salt, brown rice, or in the earth for a few days

Trust your instincts on when a crystal needs cleansing, and which method will work best for that particular crystal (or research it).

    A friend of mine introduced me to crystal healing and I was so impressed I decided to start my own little collection. My pendulum has become my best buddy.

    Crystals are an excellent way to take healing upon oneself. Crystal healing uses specific crystals to bring about healing and positive changes in the mind and body. The idea behind crystal healing is that gemstones carry vibrational rates, which can change a the vibrational rates of a person’s aura.
