What are Crystals and how can you use them in healing?

20170703_150045  Crystals are also called semi-precious gemstones. They have individually unique structures determining its energetic properties or its Vibrational signature.  The use of crystals to heal is a form of  Vibrational energy therapy known as Crystal Healing.

Crystal healing is the use of crystals placed on the body to change the energy system ( or balance and stabilize your chakras) to promote better health.

Crystals can be used for emotional, mental, physical and spiritual issues. Just like there are different types of medicines to help with different ailments; crystals also are unique due to their vibrational frequencies and help aid with specefic health issues. Feel free to contact me with questions. I’m going to blog about a few different crystals over the week.

When choosing a crystal the color can be of some use in relating to what chakra it’s most beneficial with. Also a crystal you are drawn too probably means it’s a good one to use. Before use make sure to clean and charge your crystal. There are different methods including a reiki specialist. After choosing your crystal place over the general are of concern and problem and leave there for 15 minutes or so and then remove. Application of the crystal can be done on a regular basis until problem is helped. More serious issues will take longer.

** this in no way should be used in place of medical attention. Crystals are a great way to aid with medical treatment and can bring positive results. **

 

 

Palo Santo

Palo Santo is a tree that grows on the coast of South America. There are many uses for Palo Santo or as known in Spanish, “Holly Tree”.

Energy clearing is one popular use for Palo Santo. It is said to cleanse the area and provide grounding and clear energy. I use this to cleanse my house on a regular basis and to cleanse my Reiki room.

The smell of Palo Santo is very pleasant and sweet; similar to Frankincense and Myrrh.

When you burn your Palo Santo stick the scent raises your Vibration level and helps with meditation. The overall feeling is calm and connected.

Palo Santo is similar to that of Sage and Cedar, however I find that it’s smell is more pleasant and subtle in comparison.

In some areas of the world, burning Palo Santo helps to ward off mosquitoes. I will be trying that myself this summer!

There are also healing benefits to using it’s essential oil.

To burn your Palo Santo light one end with a lighter and point the end down and away from you. After about a minute blow out the flame and allow the smoke to fill the air. I like to hold my abalone shell under it and move through out my room spreading the smoke. When I’m done I leave my stick inside of my abalone shell so it can cool with out causing damage to anything else.
