Healing with Gemstones and Crystals

Celestial Powers 

Gemstones are identified as symbols for a celestial link between humans and the sun, moon, and stars. Gemstones and Crystals also symbolize magic and healing. And it is believed that the powers attributed to healing with Gemstones and Crystals, can prevent and cure illnesses and other ailments.

Written historical accounts about the curative powers of gemstones have been in existence since the Old Age. Famous writers such as the Greek philosopher Aristotle wrote about their powers back in the ancient years before Christ. And over centuries to follow, healing with Gemstones and Crystals was well documented in a book called Physica written by the Abbess Hildegard von Bingen (1098 – 1179).

Earth, Sun & Moon

The energetic powers attributed to the healing capabilities of Gemstones and Crystals stem from Mother Earth during the time of stone formation and from the warming rays of the sun. It is therefore recommended exposing the healing stones and crystals to sunlight and moonlight from time to time so they can replenish any energy that may have been lost during the process of healing. And belief is it is most effective to put the stones on a window sill two nights before a full moon!!!

Another method used in achieving energy restoration is the stone’s burial, whereby a natural stone is placed in the ground overnight and the following day rinsed with water for a short time period. Synthetic stones cannot be used because they are not natural and lack soul, unlike a natural gemstone that is grown in Mother Nature.

Mystical Signs & Shapes

In order to maximize the effects of healing with Gemstones and Crystals, at times symbolic and mystical signs are carved on the stone, a common practice used back in the Antiquity and Middle Ages.

According to therapists the shape of a gemstone may also be useful in treatment. For example, the best symmetrical Rock Crystals with a pronounced tip are used as pendulums to increase a person’s success in the search for effective stones and to diagnose sickness.

According to a recent publication, a newly bought, inherited or gifted stone should go through the procedure of discharging (burying for some days or rinsing with cold water) before treatment in order to achieve the most beneficial results.

The much-praised healing powers of natural stones and crystals may come from the presence of the minerals within the gemstone providing certain elements and trace elements. Spiritual uplifting derived from viewing the beauty of the gemstone can also contribute to better health. And a positive mind is the foundation for good health.
