Semi-Precious Stone & Crystal Healing
Stones and crystals offer us the opportunity to bring more balance and healing on a deep emotional level. I have used them for my own healing journey and have seen powerful results with many of my jewelry customers over the years. As one customer recently said:
"I did already mention it, I know, but it still marvels me how much my ( your ) 'Mood Lifter' necklace aquamarine center stone soothes, and reassures me especially when I'm focusing or anxious, I hold it and go over and over it's smooth contours and facets with my fingers or simply envelope it's magnificence in my palm."
Why do stones and crystals work so well as healing tools? It's due to their unique stable structure which allows electromagnetic energies to flow through them in a way that is powerful and efficient. It's the reason why silicon chips are used to provide memory in computers. It's also the reason Quartz crystals can be used for watches and clocks, and radios.
With this basic principle, it's not hard to imagine that they are also capable of transforming and or amplifying other forms of energy. Another fascinating discovery is that the DNA molecule present in each cell of all living organisms is itself a hexagonal crystal structure! This connection makes it easier to understand how an energy flow from a stone can be received and perceived by our own mind/body, similar to how a crystal radio receives the signals from the broadcast tower.
The idea of unlocking our spiritual potential through the use of stones, connecting us with the source of life energy itself, is not a new concept. Indigenous cultures around the world, most notably the Hopi Native Americans, and Burma have believed Quartz Crystals to be living entities and presented them with food as ritual offerings. In Scotland and Ireland, spheres of rock crystal were long used to cure diseases in cattle. The ancient Japanese, believed Quartz represented perfection. Quartz played valuable roles in the rain rituals of Native Americans and Australian Aborigines. The Egyptian goddess Isis was said to protect the dead with a Carnelian amulet named Thet. In Greek Mythology, it states that Amethyst is a stone capable of granting spiritual protection from intoxication and also speaks of Garnet as a stone that can, through divine influence, heal emotional rifts between lovers.
