Crystals… a basic introduction into how they work.
Is there any reason to believe that crystal healing is anything but airy fairy woo woo? Sure there is. I just want to give you a tiny introduction into my understanding of crystals and crystal healing. I hope this piques your interest enough to do your own exploring into the world of crystals.
First the Poetic Woo Woo…
I not only wrote this next verse, but I feel it in my heart. It expresses my love of crystals. But I know a lot of people want facts and need to understand what the fuss is all about. Keep reading (after my pretty words) and I will do my best to explain crystal healing as I understand it… in a nut shell.
Throughout the history of the earth, crystals
and people have shared a long romance.
For thousands of years, lovers have been wooed with
these gems. From quartz to diamonds, they are all crystals.
Stories of Atlantis, Lemuria, and Camelot all share
a wonderful connection with these stones.
Some crystals are as old as the earth itself. Just imagine
if those stones could talk! What epic stories they would tell.
Healers from ancient times used these gifts from the earth
to aid in their practice. You are the healers of today and
may your stories be told with great acclaim!
Igneous rock is formed through the cooling and solidification of lava. A good example is Obsidian.
Sedimentary rock is formed by the accumulation of small rocks, minerals, and organisms cemented together. A good example is sandstone.
Metamorphic rock is formed by adding heat and pressure to any type of rock. A good example is diamond.
Six Different Crystalline Structures or Lattices.
Isometric aka Cubic, Triclinic, Hexagonal, Orthorhombic, Monoclinic, Tetragonal. Then there is the Amorphous classification. It is non-crystalline, meaning it lacks the arrangement of atoms in a repeated form, aka crystalline structure or lattice. A good example of Amorphous is obsidian. There are literally thousands of minerals in the world and these crystalline structures can have any number of minerals combined in one stone. Each crystal is amazingly different.
Let’s Put a Few Things Together… More Fun Facts.
So if you add up all three, you can see that your body’s energy field can be (modified) synchronized with that of a crystal just by having that crystal in your energy field. It does get more intricate than that, but it gives you the idea of how crystals work with your carrot… I mean your electromagnetic energy field.
I hope this piques your interest enough to do your own exploring into the world of crystals. I will have more articles and to share soon. Thank you for reading.
