The power of Crystals

Crystal Healing is an ancient practice that uses natural gemstones and crystals to heal the body, stimulate the mind and activate the soul. Countless proofs have been found throughout history where the healing power of crystals has been mentioned in various cultures and civilizations. We have long known from Egyptians, Mayans, Sumerians and Indians that they adorned themselves with crystals to ward off evil and protect themselves from dark forces.

Crystals are natural minerals usually found beneath the Earth and formed through thousands of years of crystallization in various environmental conditions. Because crystals are inherently connected to nature, they have an incredible power to sense pain and unease in a human body and to heal the body and mind.

Gemstones can give you strength and help to alleviate depressive feelings. Gemstones can also help you with processing grief or difficult experiences.

How do you cleanse and purify gemstones?

Before you can use gemstones for protection, it is important to first cleanse and purify them of outside energy. You do this by briefly holding the stones under cold running water. Please note that some stones such as hematite are very sensitive to water. So don’t let them soak in the water.

You can also cleanse your stones by placing them in the light of the full moon for a night. Always do this behind glass and not outside. Different weather influences (sun, rain, temperature) can change the color of your gemstones. There are other techniques for cleaning your gems, but these are the simplest.

Now your stones are cleansed and pure and you can harness the energy for your own healing.
