When using crystals to heal you must understand the properties of the crystals you are using. Crystals vibrate at different rates enabling them to heal different areas of the body. Quartz crystals have excellent healing properties. Quartz also has the ability to transform an imbalanced energy field. When you feel stressed the crystal can balance your energies and revitalize you. Other minerals besides quartz crystals - display-healing properties. Most crystal healing is guided to the healer by Spirit. Spirit will tell the healer which crystals will be most effective and in what patterns the crystals should be placed on or around the person’s body.

The length of time used with the crystals will vary with each patient and healer. The healer must determine the patient’s frequency and attune it to the crystals that will place it in balance. All healing is about placing the body in balance.

Treatments will vary in length and number of times required. Owning a crystal that you carry with you or keep in the area you spend most of your time can enhance the healing after you work with the healer.

It’s always good to have a few quartz crystals around your home to balance the energies - before you need the healing. Many people connect the color frequency of a specific chakra with that of the stone being used. For example - if one were healing the throat chakra - one would use one or more blue stones placed on the throat chakra alone - or in patterns.

The person needing the healing would lie down, the blue crystals being placed on the throat chakra. The success of crystal healing varies with the person being healed. Remember that in all healing one must address the emotional issues linked to the healing. The physical illness can be permanently cured.
