Crystals are used in our phones, radios, watches, and computers. We use them more in our daily rituals than you see. For the uninitiated, crystals (fossilized minerals) are believed to contain several healing properties. From bringing peace to the mind to fighting depression, the list is endless. A lot of celebrities are using them and vouching for their efficacy.
When one talks about the world of alternate therapies, the usage of healing crystals probably tops the list. So how do crystals help us on our wellness journey, and why do we choose certain crystals over others?
There are many to choose from, apart from their healing abilities, they also make beautiful decorations in your space. These healing rocks and crystals have their particular vibration and frequency, depending on their molecular composition. From the way they move and interact, these vibrations and energies work to benefit our mood, mind, and health, often in the way essential oils work. Acting like a magnet, it can absorb the negative energies. Since they are all naturally extracted, they harness the energies of the sun, moon, and oceans (all-natural healing energies) to improve our state. When you place or hold a crystal over the body, it interacts with the body’s chakras and promotes physical and mental wellness. Used in a certain way, it can also improve your concentration and creativity. It can also promote physical, emotional, and spiritual cleansing. Crystals have also been used in ancient forms of medicine, and by priests to align the body’s energy centers. Using crystals as an effective form of practicing self-care is becoming incredibly popular. Scientifically, there is no science backing to the power of crystal healing in treating or curing conditions. However, using healing crystals can be very relaxing as they induce a sense of relaxation in the environment. But, do they actually work in treating medical conditions?
How do they work?
According to experts, crystals act as a power hold for healing as they allow positive, fruitful energy to flow into the body and do away with the negative, toxic energy. Like other forms of alternative therapy, crystals work by channelizing your energy levels, focusing on healing your body from the inside.
Crystals also carry the power to induce a placebo effect in the body, which is scientifically proven to help medical treatment.
Crystals vibrate at the same pitch as humans and maximize the healing abilities we already have.
How to use them? Which stone is the best?
Each healing crystal carries its own properties and powers. Depending on their benefits, you can use a healing rock to naturally heal yourself and remove stress and negativity. Some of the most commonly used stones include amethyst, clear quartz, tigers eye and rose quartz.
Amethyst has been found to hold powers which are extremely beneficial for the intestines and digestive troubles. Stones like green aventurine is good to promote cardiac wellness while healing rocks like yellow topaz clear up mental blocks and provide clarity.

I love the story “The dark crystal” by Jim Henson. In another time, The Dark Crystal – a source of Balance and Truth in the Universe – was shattered, dividing the world into two factions: the wicked Skeksis and the peaceful Mystics. Now, as the convergence of the three suns approaches, the Crystal must be healed, or darkness will reign forevermore! It’s up to Jen – the last of his race – to fulfill the prophecy that a Gelfling will return the missing shard to the Crystal and destroy the Skeksis’ evil Empire. But will young Jen’s courage be any match for the unknown dangers that await him? Revisit this masterful fantasy epic from the brilliant imagination of Jim Henson.
