Crystal healing

The metaphysical power of crystals is no longer a mystery to the world. Crystal healing rituals are becoming a phenomenal trend. It is a sacred ancient science and technique created over millions of years that is once again gaining immense popularity today. People are rediscovering the magnificent healing energies of crystals and using it as a type of alternative therapy. This involves placing the semi-precious crystals on the body or in the environment to create a peaceful refuge and to de-clutter negative energies within you and around your home.

Crystals harness the life-giving elements of the Earth and the universe. Along with the energy of the Sun, the Moon, and the oceans, these semi-precious crystals connect us to certain energies as soon as we or our home environment comes into contact with them.

Deciphered by Quantum Physics that everything is made up of energy, we human beings are energy, reverberating at a certain level. A piece of furniture at home is energy and even crystals are made up of energy. The energy inherent in the crystals can be used for all kinds of purposes i.e. from keeping time using small quartz crystals in your watches to creating the electronic components in your computer and smartphone.

What science has to say

In a study done by IBM scientist Marcel Vogel, he watched crystals grow under a microscope and noticed that their shape took the form of whatever he was thinking about. He then hypothesised that these vibrations are the result of the constant assembling and disassembling of bonds between molecules. This proved that rocks can store thoughts and intentions.

Crystal healing rituals at home

That water has memory, is a conventional scientific theory. Water has the capability to preserve memory of the terrain or emotions or environment it is exposed to. Rainwater is indeed special, it is the blessing from the Divine which possess earthy healing properties.

When rainwater is charged with crystals like clear quartz or rose quartz, it becomes extremely healing and powerful as well as calming. This water can be used for watering plants, for pets, and for sprinkling in your house to enhance peace, harmony and positivity. Drinking water can also be charged with these crystals for internal healing.

Crystals should be perfectly cleaned and charged before using. Cleansing can be done by keeping them in rock salt water overnight at home. Not all crystals can bear water exposure but the ones stated above can do so. Charging the crystals can be done by placing them in moonlight overnight, or through Reiki or a couple of additional methods. 

The crystals specified below are highly recommended to raise your vibrations of yourself and your home this monsoon.

Citrine

With its pure yellow energy, Citrine is a primary crystal for manifestation, imagination and self-will. It consists of the power and energy of the sun. It stimulates the chakras within like the sunlight of spring and possesses the power of transforming one’s desires into a tangible form. It is a good idea to keep Citrine in your altar and use it for manifesting while you meditate upon it. This crystal encourages new pursuit towards life by making you optimistic.

During the monsoon, there is a lot of cloud cover due to which we might not have the direct exposure to the sun’s rays. Our environment sometimes becomes gloomy, dark and depressing. Thus, to cultivate the sun energy at home and within yourself, Citrine crystals can be used to gain access to the sun’s energy.

Getting help

They also suggest at which corners or areas of your home, crystals should be kept, for e.g. the energy of the crystals should be matching the five elements “Water, Fire, Ether, Air and Earth” which correspond to the directions East, West, North, South to manifest immense benefits.
