History of Crystal Healing
Crystal Healing is an ancient system which treats patients holistically through the precise placement of crystals on the body and surrounding environment. Unlike modern healthcare, crystal therapy addresses the patient as a whole paying as much attention to a persons spiritual and emotional well-being as well as their physical health. There is little scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of crystal healing on a medical level, however crystals have been used and enjoyed for thousands of years, many find peace, relaxation and harmony in crystal healing. Crystal healing provides an non-invasive, relaxing, natural and enjoyable therapy.
The first recorded crystal, the zircon crystal was formed 4.4 million years ago when most of the planet was thought to be molten lava. It is found in northwestern Australia.
The first crystals known to be used by man was flint which was as tools and weapons. Later, Obsidean was used by the Mayans again as tools, weapons but also create scrying mirrors. 30,000-year-old Amber amulets have been found, those found in Britain date to around 10,000 years ago. Crystal healing is thought to date back to the Egyptians, as early as 2000 BC, Lapis Lazuli in particular was a known favorite thought provide protection, topazwas used for purging evil spirits. Ancient China held quartz and jade in high regard, with India using crystals in conjunction with astrology from around 400 BC. There are several references to crystals in biblical accounts, being used in the breastplate of the first high priest as well as in the Koran.Crystal amulets were frequently used in the medieval period as forms of protection; the largest revival of crystal healing has been since the 1960s.
Crystals vibrate energy, crystal therapy is based on the premise that crystals can, in a sense, communicate with the energies flowing around the body. These electromagnetic charges can be used to interact with the body to remove blockages and restore a healthy flow through the body and mind. An example of this is quartz, which is used in wristwatches; it is capable of generating an electrical charge when under stress, and this is referred to as being piezoelectric.
When we are born we have the potential required to achieve everything we desire, experiences provide negative situations resulting in imperfections, clear quartz which vibrates on the pitch of perfection calls upon this state of perfection – the “law of harmony”, by wearing quartz on the spiritual plexus we join in this state of perfection, amplifying and manifesting our original selves.
