Types of Crystals

1389925054-93.jpg

Crystals are defined as solid minerals, in which component ions, atoms, and molecules are arranged in a regular structure. It is this orderly arrangement of the constituent particles that gives all types of crystals a straight edge and flat surface. Examples of common crystals include salt, sugar, snowflakes, gemstones, rubies and diamonds. Each of the crystal types possess a specific shape and different properties, based on which they are classified.

There are seven crystal systems or groups, each of which have a distinct atomic lattice. The atomic lattice is a three-dimensional network of atoms that are arranged in a symmetrical pattern. The shape of the lattice determines not only which crystal system the stone belongs to, but all of its physical properties and appearance. In some crystal healing practices, the axial symmetry of a crystal is believed to directly influence its metaphysical properties.

Cleanse and Heal Energy at Illuminations

Dubai (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

Dubai-based holistic well-being center, Illuminationsoffers various methods of treating disruptions in the energy body – energy healing and cleansing – through different types of classes.

Energy healing works on the principle that everything is made of energy. The levels of energy operated from directly correspond with the way people think and feel. Therefore, this energy influences and governs the functioning of the inner and outer self.

At the core of all matter lies energy, and the human body is no different. The energy body is a template for the physical body and therefore any change in the energy body directly affects the physical body.

Through healing and balancing these energies, one is able to experience a sense of spiritual cleansing where miraculous results are experienced on the mental, emotional and even physical levels.

Healing and cleansing can be done on a regular basis through any of these classes at Illuminations:

Reiki Healing

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It is made up of two Japanese words – Rei which means ‘ spiritually guided ’ and Ki which means ‘life force energy’. Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field and allows the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.

Aura Cleansing

The Aura is the energy field that surrounds the physical body, and can unravel a lot about the mind-body-energy state of a person. Clearing the aura shields people from negative influences of any kind, which everyone may be susceptible to.

Chakra Balancing and Alignment

Chakras are energy vortexes located throughout the body, which regulate the flow of energy through the system. The functioning of the chakras, reflect how one chooses to respond to conditions in their life. When the chakras our balanced, they spin beautifully in a clockwise motion, which in turn clears the auras.

Crystal Healing

Crystal Healing is a form of healing that uses crystals or gemstones, which are placed around different areas around the body to direct energy flow towards the affected area to heal and restore balance. They help in releasing and clearing negative energy, thereby assisting in energy healing. Each crystal has a unique vibrational resonance. If an individual that has a particular issue that is recurring, crystals can even be worn on the body in various forms, or placed in an area in which an individual spends a large amount of time such as the bedroom or workplace.

Rebirthing

Human breathing is almost universally inadequate; virtually all people are suppressing large amounts of mental, emotional and physical tension. The practice of Rebirthing through breath work allows the detoxification of the body and the release of the suppressed tension. It is also used to recall aspects of the birth process, and through conscious, connected breath, release any emotions that accompanied the experience.

Quantum Reiki

Quantum Healing is reprogramming the subconscious with the blueprint of a healthy body through imagery and feeling, supporting the cellular rejuvenation at the basic energetic level. Reiki healing whilst the client is in hypnotic trance improves the flow of energy as the client is more receptive to the healing energy, it's as adding a pull to the process, when combined with Quantum Healing the Reiki provides the energy to support the cellular rejuvenation.

Healing Stones and Crystals – Crystal Healing – iBuzzle

Want to know more about healing with crystals and gemstones? Read on…

Gemstones and crystals have had a long association with mankind. For centuries, man has used crystals and gemstones to create happiness and healing within his life. These crystals and gemstones are formed under the earth’s surface and contain many minerals. They give out healing energy to the wearer. These crystals are said to synthesize the energy of the sun into healing energy.

There are a variety of healing gemstones and crystals available in the market. All of these stones possess qualities which can be desired by any or all of us. So which gemstone or crystal is just right for us? The answer is not so simple. Go with what you feel. Hold the stone in your hand and let go of all emotions. Probably only one or two emotions will refuse to go away. For you, the stone will represent those emotions. If that is a happy emotion, go with it. Otherwise the stone is not for you. Alternatively, you can also consult an astrologist or a gem therapist to suggest suitable crystals and gemstones for you.

These crystals and gemstones contain many healing properties. They are made out of minerals which have come together under the surface of the earth. This gives them their unique colors and qualities. There are several methods of using the crystals for healing purposes. Some of them are outlined below.

One of the most common methods of using healing crystals is by placing them on the affected parts of the body. These can be your seven chakras, or just a particular body part. The therapist will use stones that are suited for your body type, and depending on the chakras that are needed to be activated or unblocked.

Another very common method is wearing the crystal. If long term healing or benefit is desired from a particular crystal, then most people prefer to wear the gemstone in a pendant or in a ring.

Another method of healing with crystals is making elixirs from them. This is a fairly simple procedure where you place your chosen crystal in glass bowl of pure spring water and leave it in the sunlight for 12 hours. This water can then be bottled (preferably in a dark glass bottle with an air tight stopper) and can be used for a week. If you want to use the water for a longer time period, you can add 50 percent brandy into it. This elixir can be drunk or added to your bath or used as a spray. However, please study the minerals in a particular crystal before drinking its elixir. Some gemstones and crystals might not be suitable for making elixirs. Either the crystal might be water-soluble or poisonous.

A useful method of healing with crystals is putting the crystal in your bath water. You can also add to the healing environment by burning incense or scented candles and bathe in this relaxing environment. This can be quite a rejuvenating experience.

It has been mentioned before that all crystals have healing properties. You have to find one that suits you the best. You can do that by keeping the crystal with you for a few days and observing the effect. If it does nothing for you, you can ignore it. If it creates a bad feeling, discard it. If you feel good with it, and you notice benefits, then hang on to it.

Cleansing the crystals is also equally important. You can place them in the sunlight or the moonlight for 12 hours after washing them thoroughly under running water. Take care, that water soluble crystals will dissolve by frequent washing.

Here is a list of a few healing properties of crystals and gemstones :

  • Amber: Draws off negative energy, cleanses the aura.
  • Amethyst: Heals and protects the aura, draws divine energy, treatment for acne and arthritis.
  • Tourmaline: Provides a psychic shield, releases toxins.
  • Labradorite: Prevents energy leakage, aligns with spiritual purpose.
  • Quartz: Cleans, protects and increases aura.
  • Smoky Quartz: Grounds energy, dissolves negative patterns in aura.
  • Flourite: Anti-Viral, Dissolves blockages.
  • Moss Agate: Treats fungal infections.
  • Citrine: Clears mental confusion, improves concentration.
  • Carnelian: Re-energizes.
  • Chrysocolla: Releases unresolved grief.
  • Aquamarine: Clams stressed or overactive mind.
  • Yellow Sapphire: Creates abundance.
  • Turquoise: Harnesses creative energies.
  • Rose Quartz: Attracts loving energies.

A story among gemstone fanatics is that when a stone has done its ‘thing’ for you, it will find a way to leave you. So if you find yourself losing a stone at some point, remember, that it has done its job and has moved on. If you persist in getting a replacement stone, then it too will move on. I can say this is true with personal experience.

A gemstone is, thus, a gift of Mother Nature which gives you a lot of energies that are loving and healing and help create an aura of happiness and prosperity.

Book Review: Wisdom Of The Gemstone Guardians

Michael Katz’ Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is unique among crystal healing books in many regards. One thing that sets it apart is that it makes no secret of the fact that is practically entirely ‘channeled’ from spirit entities, the so called ‘Gemstone Guardians.’

At the same time as this may sound ‘airy fairy’ to many conservative health practitioners and even herbalists, author Michael Katz firmly believes this form of methodically approached crystal healing, which he refers to as Gemstone Energy Medicine, has a bright future within the conventional health field.

And Mr. Katz does not stand alone in his conviction. Numerous athletes are firm believers in the power of therapeutic quality gem stones. Testimonials can be found on Katz’ site from Swedish Olympic Medalist Glen Christiansen, British Olympic Swimmer Mark Foster, Arizona Diamondbacks’ Pitcher Tanner Eriksen, and Olympic Trainer and Triathlete Art Dilworth.

Another celebrity testimonial comes from Larry King, of Larry King Live, who can be found quoted on the sleeve of the 1997 edition of this book as saying, “Some inner voice told me to read this book. Thank you, inner voice. What a remarkable study.”

The material in Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is made up of the teachings of twenty-nine ‘Gemstone Guardians,” each of whom is in charge of a particular gemstone. They tell us of the powers and healing qualities of each stone.

Even though Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is technically speaking a non-fiction book, it is so exquisitely well written that it’s actually a more enjoyable read, cover to cover, than most novels. It’s hard to put down once you’ve begun reading it, and I’ve heard of no other book engendering an interest in crystal healing in the previously uninitiated.

It should be noted that Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is not a reference book on crystals. It is an inspirational story with in-depth information about a select few of the most powerful healing gemstones and crystals available on the market today. If you are looking for a reference book, there are better choices. If you’re ready to be set on fire about gemstones, then Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is the book for you.

The best-selling Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians has been reprinted numerous times. The original title of the book was Gifts of the Gemstone Guardians. A later intermediary edition was sold as Gemisphere Luminary.

Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians contains information on Quarts, Lavender Quartz, Aventurine, Emerald, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Rhodochrosite, Amethyst, Purple Rainbow Fluorite, Blue Sapphire, Indigo (crystalline form of Sodalite), Carnelian, Citrine, Aquamarine, Green Tourmaline, Pink Tourmaline, Sodalite, Leopardskin Jasper, Poppy Jasper, Bloodstone, Ivorite, Opalite, Riverstone, Rhodonite, Malachite, Lapis Lazuli, Black Onyx, Mother of Pearl and Pearl.
