New to Crystals and Not Sure Where to Start?

Posted by Jen Faeline Mergell on

When you are new to crystal healing and the world of crystals it can be overwhelming. One of the biggest things I notice is people are wanting to make sure they are doing things the "right" way. I'll admit, I can be one of those people too. Here is the first rule for crystals and crystal healing...

The way that works best for you is the right way!

If something feels right to you and it is working for you, don't change it just because someone comes along and says that you're doing it wrong or they have a better way. This includes authors too. Always trust your intuition! It will let you know what is right for you.

How does crystal healing work?

Everything has a vibrational frequency. I mean everything! Our bodies, our emotions, crystals, absolutely everything in the Universe. A crystal's structure is repeating all throughout the crystal. Due to this perfect geometric pattern it creates a more stable energetic frequency. Their vibrations typically do not vary too much. Our bodies, on the other hand, are not as stable. Our energies can be thrown out easily by things such as stress. When a crystal enters into our energy field its vibration works with our energy back into balance. Think of it this way... Someone really loud and obnoxious walks into a quiet, peaceful room. Typically that loud person will quiet down at least a little bit to match the rest of the room. This is called entrainment. It is when 2 different frequencies meet up, the one with the higher energy pulls the other frequency up to meet it. Stress and illness have very low energetic frequencies. The crystal's high energy helps to entrain our own energy, raising our energetic frequency to help match the crystal's.

This works especially well with our chakras; the energy centers in our bodies that help govern different aspect of your body physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. When they are in balance is when you are in optimal health. Chakras can become imbalanced, closed, or blocked easily. This happens due to stress, emotional upsets, negative thought patterns, childhood experiences, and simply living life and all that goes with it. Crystals can help us to bring our chakras back into balance. Please keep in mind, a crystal can only help you with what your body can achieve naturally! However, it can help you get to that point faster. For example, you can get over a cold on your own. However, Fluorite can help you body to overcome the cold faster than you would have without it. My Chakras article contains more information on the chakras and their corresponding crystal.

My teacher, Ashley from Love & Light has a brief video to also help explain how crystals entrain with our own energies to help us heal ourselves.
