Crystals and minerals aren’t just pretty to look at. Their esoteric energy and their spiritual properties can be used for a type of healing called crystal healing.
Since thousands of years, people have been using minerals and gemstones for their healing powers. Because these crystals truly are gifts from Mother Earth.
Crystal friends, that’s what I usually call them. Just like a good friend, they’re always there for you. Ready to give you the love and support that you need.
Even when you don’t quite know yourself what it is that you need. Or want.
Can crystal healing help you?
Every problem that we face – whether it’s physical, emotional or energetic – exists on several levels within our own system.
An issue might start on one level and then seep through to other levels. The classic example is an emotional problem that causes physical pain or discomfort. Sometimes you’re not even aware of the true origin of the problem and you only notice its symptoms.
Crystal healing bypasses all of that, by working directly on your energetic level. Or even on your spiritual level.
The energy stimulates your body to trigger its self-healing reflexes. Once started, this process of healing yourself trickles down into all the other layers that make up the whole of you.
Depending on the nature of your problem, you may require additional support as well of course. Crystal healing will help you to heal yourself, by shining the light of awareness on something that’s been hiding in the dark for too long.
But it cannot (and doesn’t want to) replace the kind of care that is common sense, like eating and living healthily, getting enough sleep, restoring balace between your heart and mind. Or getting a qualified medical professional’s opinion and advice about your problems.
This is why we call crystal healing a holistic and complementary therapy. When it’s part of a wider and sensible regime of personal care, crystal healing creates a synergy. It gives you the spiritual and energetic push you need to make the most of your life.
What crystals are right for you?
Choosing which crystals are right for you, should be an intuitive process. That anyway, is how I work. During a crystal healing session I let the crystals choose you.
There are plenty of books and websites out there that will tell you what type of crystal to use for every imaginable human issue. I’ve read quite a few of them and I must say, I like the pretty pictures in some of them ;-)
But intuition should be the decisive factor. Because if we were to think rationally about something as spiritual and energetic as this, you and I could be wrong. Our crystal friends however never are.
In every crystal healing session I do, there are always several of these crystal friends “calling” out to me. This is not just a “gut feeling”. It’s how the spiritual world communicates with me through my energetic sensitivity.
And then there’s the healing energy bit
Crystal healing is not simply a matter of arranging some crystals on and around your physical body.
The crystals may each have their very own and specific vibrational frequency – their energetic stamp if you like. But the real healing doesn’t start until they can interact with the energy of the session and with your energy in that particular moment.
That again, is one of the things where I come in. My role is to activate the energy fields and to act as a go-between for the spiritual world.
Just like in an energy healing session, I serve as a sort of catalyst and medium through whom the energy and the information passes.
How does crystal healing work?
As you can imagine, there’s a wide variety of opinions about this. This is my view on how crystal healing works, based on my experiences with crystals and energy work.
First of all, there’s the energy of the crystals themselves. Their frequencies are very pure and there are virtually no disturbances in their energy vibrations. Which makes them perfect energetic tuning forks.
Your own energy field will react to the crystals’ pureness, by trying to mimic their clear frequencies. This raises your vibrational level and helps to heal the issue that caused the disturbance in your system in the first place.
That also explains why carrying the right kind of crystal with you (as a necklace or a ring for instance) can and will have positive effects in your life.
But a crystal healing session is much more than simply being physically close to healing crystals.
Because besides having their own energy fields, crystals also act as a bridge, creating a connection with healing esoteric energies from the spiritual world.
Crystals and minerals are anchor points for the spiritual energy to latch on to. You could say they’re a kind of beacon that healing energies from higher dimensions can use to come into our human plane of existence.
The sources of this spiritual healing energy are very diverse. But they are always for the highest good. And they give you exactly what you need, in that specific moment.

A word of caution…
Energy healing and crystal healing should not be viewed as a replacement for medical care. If you are concerned about your physical or mental health, please consult with your GP or medical professional first.
I offer what is called complementary therapy, which means my services are not intended to be a substitute for medical treatment or medical advice.
