Crystal Therapy - Real or Woo Woo?

Crystal Therapy - Real or Woo Woo?

Posted by Sarah Balmer on Jun 25th 2018

It’s no secret that the sub-conscious awareness of crystals is growing among the collective. You may have stumbled across them recently and your interest has peaked. You may find yourself asking, is there really such thing as crystal therapy? Is this what I need to support the shifts I am trying to make?

I have experienced first-hand the energetic benefits of crystals. And that is why I’ve extended my education to include a certification in crystal therapy. As a health coach, yoga instructor and business professional, I am a holistic health advocate who is passionate about getting to the root cause of what troubles us. I reject the current matrix that promotes illness with chemical-ridden, processed foods and only treats symptoms with profit-generating pharmaceuticals. I know I’m not alone in the pursuit of holistic healing regimens and tools for living with greater vitality.

So how can crystals contribute to wellbeing?

Crystal therapy offers healing benefits to those open to receiving the earth’s energetic vibrations. Crystals come from the earth, mother Gaia herself, and in their most elemental form, they are created with a repeating molecular structure that forms what is known as a crystal lattice. This repeating pattern allows crystals to hold a consistent energetic frequency. When we come into contact with this energy either physically or through intention, our energy centers benefit from its vibration. As humans, our energy fields are easily influenced. Crystals hold a steady state allowing us to become entrained. ‘Entrainment’ is the scientific term that explains how one frequency with a stronger resonance influences another in its field, setting the pace for its rhythm. When the vibrational frequency of two fields become in sync, vibrating at the same rate to the beat of the higher frequency, this is called ‘resonance.’

According to the article, The Healing Power of Resonant Frequencies, from Quantum Emergence, “low frequencies and frequencies that are out of balance, cause illness. By using frequency-healing tools, you can help correct those imbalances even before they create disease. Frequency healing tools are complimentary to each other and modern medicine and have no negative side effects.”

This article is centered around vibrational healing through sound. But in essence, crystals work in a similar way, to align and balance energy centers in the body known as chakras, to promote healing and remove hidden causes of imbalance that over time translate to injury or disease.

In crystal therapy, crystals are selected for you to support your intentions for the highest benefit to you and to the whole planet. Crystals may be placed on your body in a guided meditation or they may be placed on the body energetically through a distance healing session with the energy sent to you by the healer. This may sound like woo woo but quantum physics explains that two particles at distant locations may resonate at the same frequency with one influencing the other. Energy waves may be sent though the healing power of intention and energetically received.

Additionally, one can work with a crystal grid to manifest intentions or deep desires. Grids work on the basis of sacred geometry to combine the energies of multiple crystals and amplify them beyond the sum of their individual contributions to promote health and healing.

At a more basic level, we can choose to work with just one crystal to manifest intentions or simply receive its therapeutic effects. This can be through meditation, carrying the crystal in your pocket or wearing it in the form of jewelry to keep it close.

While crystals entice us with their mystical properties, it is important to remember that they are not magic rocks and they are not a substitute for medical treatment. Crystals absorb, reflect and transfer energy. They work through the power of our intentions and offer energetic support to help us shift in ways that further our path.
