Crystals were created by God. They are beautiful creations that grow deep within the earth. These geometrically designed things are powerful because they can store, focus, transmit, transform, and amplify energy. They are affected by their surroundings.
A crystal syncs with the earth’s energy field. Since your body does the same, this mineral can harmonize the energy within and around you, balancing the ratio of positive & negative ions in your environment. Each crystal also has a unique vibration and frequency (due to its crystalline structure and color). This allows them to assist in healing designated areas of the body, as they may encourage unhealthy cells to vibrate at the same frequency of healthy cells.
Myths & Truth: Crystals & Gemstones in the Bible
In the Bible, we find crystals, gemstones, and rocks mentioned several times. In Exodus 28, we find crystals and gemstones were used in Aaron’s breastplate. It was made according to the design given by God to Moses. This breastplate was important because it was how God revealed His plan to His people. The breastplate was designed so that all the twelve tribes of Israel were engraved on the stones. Aaron was a high priest, and whenever he went to speak to the Lord on behalf of the people, he would wear this breastplate.
This breastplate was used as a means to help him and God’s people make decisions.The gemstones used in the breastplate were: Jasper, Sardius, Agate, Amethyst, Beryl, Onyx, Topaz, Carbuncle, Ligure, Emerald, Sapphire and Diamond.
Now, the reason why some believe crystal healing is wrong is because a lot of healers use spirit guides to help them in their healing sessions. Or they believe that stones can help you make decisions, bring luck, or some use it as a tool to try to communicate with angels, God, and other things. As you can see, some of this was stolen from the Bible. But as Christians, we know that these ‘spirit guides’ could be evil spirits who are trying to manipulate the Bible so they can lead people astray.
We don’t need a high priest because Jesus Christ is our High Priest now. And we don’t need crystals or gemstones to help us communicate with God. Jesus died for our sins and rose from the dead, bringing Christians closer to God. If your Faith lies in Jesus Christ, and you have been reborn into His Eternal family, you now have the Holy Spirit that lives in you as your Spirit Guide who you can talk to whenever you want. And we can see God’s crystals (and all of creation) as symbols and gifts.
Now, using these gifts in practical ways to assist in healing should not be too hard to grasp. If you think about it, when you wear a ring with a crystal in it, you may be unknowingly healing yourself with this method of healing (as you will see in my next post). And if you charge the crystal, you are only enhancing its healing nature.
However, I also know that all Christians have weaknesses and strengths, and we are all at different stages. So it may be unwise for you to do something that someone else does as you might fall into worldly traps, like using crystals as a quick fix for soul issues that require capitulation and God’s Spiritual healing. This is why you must seek His guidance with all things.
But once you eliminate using crystals in the wrong way (like with sex, wine, & other creations… etc), you are left with another part of creation that can aid in healing.
Clear Quartz Crystal: The Master Healer
Just as various colored food or herbs heal the body, various colored crystals and stones do the same. For example: Eggplant = Lavender = Amethyst, all connected. The master crystal is the clear quartz crystal. It is the master crystal because it contains all the colors of the rainbow, which is healing to all areas of the body. I think this might be one of my favorite crystals because it’s another way to reflect on Christ. He is True Light (an array of colors), brings healing to our whole being, and He is the Master Healer.
If you are just getting into healing with crystals, you might want to start with clear quartz and go from there as your knowledge increases. Or just allow yourself to choose. You may be drawn to a particular crystal or gemstone because you need it, like when you crave certain foods due to vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
Preparing the Crystal
When you get your crystal, you should cleanse it because its natural balance could be out of whack, which means it needs to return to its normal vibratory rate. You can do this by putting it under running filtered or purified water. Or, better yet, take it to a natural stream, spring or river to cleanse it. You can also cleanse with sound or bury it outside in moist dirt (for a few hours), if you are sure the dirt is not contaminated. You can also cleanse it under the sun or moon.
The methods above can also re-energize the stones to enhance their healing powers. I usually leave my gemstone or crystal under the warm sun or moon for a few hours. Just do not leave your crystal out in the sun all day. Remember that these stones are a part of God’s creation, so you should not abuse them.
There are many ways to cleanse your crystals or gemstones; these are just a few methods I use.
A Tale of Caution
You should be careful where you acquire your stone or crystal because of the possible exposure to toxic chemicals. It is usually safer to use tumbled stones if you will be using them to charge water. But, for my clear quartz crystals, I use double terminated raw stones because clear quartz is safe to use. My next post will cover a few healing methods that can be used and which crystals or stones are known to help heal designated areas of the body.
(all stones cannot be cleansed the same way, so double check your stone of choice. Or, if in doubt, use a full moon, or ask me)
