This is a simple and easy guide about crystal healing. It is designed for the novice to begin the journey as a crystal healer. It covers the basic concepts of energy healing and a discussion of the main crystals that are commonly used in healing.
This book is an introductory handbook for those wanting to learn about crystal healing for the first time. It covers basic concepts and simple healing methods. I have used most of the information contained in the book as the basis for the beginners’ crystal healing classes. The information is (hopefully) presented in a simplified, accessible manner to assist those wanting to start their relationship with the wonderful world of crystal healing. Do not be alarmed if you do not remember everything about the different stones immediately. With time, you will find the recognition of the crystals easier. Try to get to know one stone at a time. Work as far as possible with a single crystal, until you feel familiar with it before you move on to others. So let’s start with some basics.
This chapter is an explanation of the use of energy in healing. It is the basis of all spiritual healing and you should pay keen attention to the different chakras and what ailment/conditions they relate to. This method of energy healing and balancing will be used in most healing systems you use, for example, reiki, chios healing, etc. As you find your way through the various chapters, you will be introduced to many chakras and chakra points. In this chapter, we focus on the major chakra system, and begin our journey of healing.
THE MAJOR CHAKRAS
Everything in the Universe is made up of energy. The physical form of the human body it is made up of different types and systems of energy. The state of health of the energy bodies determines the state of health of the physical form in any person. It is useful to start off by becoming familiar with the major chakra centers in the body. Most healing of the mind, body and spirit can be done from these chakra points.
Chakra is the Sanskrit word for wheel. The chakras are energy centers (wheels) which occur in the `subtle’ (ethereal) body of every person. Each of these chakras is spinning and each is connected to locations of the physical body which receive, regulate and disperse the universal energies we need in order to function.
They are often depicted as small rotating vortices of energy which can be observed as spinning circles or cones. These cones draw in Pranic or Chi energy from the air around you and send it, as light energy, to the body centers. The frequency of the vibration of each chakra is associated with a color. These color associations are the basis upon which most crystal healing methods are founded. There are many chakras in the body, but the major ones are the seven that run from the base of the spine to the top of the head.
Your chakras continue to operate throughout your life and they respond to your emotions, mental attitudes, physical and spiritual well being. As a result of your experiences, thoughts or an influx of energy, they may become too closed (restricting action, feelings or emotions) or too open (creating a floodgate of emotions). In this chapter, we will look at some of the simple ways to balance them with the use of crystals. It follows from this that all the chakras need to be working equally efficiently for you to have true spiritual, mental, emotional and physical good health.
Each of your seven major chakras within the body is indicated by a different color vibration. All seven collectively represent the colors of a rainbow/prism.
