Crystal Healing

 

Crystal Healing

Imagine the wonderment of primitive manor woman stumbling across a uniquely shaped, brilliantly colored, crystal among a vast expanse of amorphous, grew rock. Would it be any surprise if that person attributed mystical powers to it?
Fundamental human instinct is for survival and to avoid trouble , from which spring countless taboos and superstitions. 
Many minerals have served to protect and appease spirits throughout history and have been made into talismans. 
Historically, crystals have underpinned human development economically, technologically, and culturally. The importance of crystals links all civilizations across space and time. Until the current age of credit and hidden assets, crystals were portable forms of wealth and status. We continue to construct roads and buildings using crystalline material such as granite and marble; concrete's rigidity and quick -setting properties depend on crystals growth. And cultures as far back as pre-dynastic Egypt have used jewelry to celebrate human individuality.

Crystals help us to interpret the past. They teach us many things about human kind's cultural heritage. Their desirability in antiquity helps us to trace trading routes between far-flung civilizations. We can monitor changing fashions for gem material for decorative as well as medical purposes. Bound up with myth and magic, crystals help bring to light the different historical world views that have arisen down the ages concerning the immutable link between humans and nature.

The Healing Power Of Crystals

The first known reference to the healing power of certain crystals comes form an Egyptian papyrus dated around 1600BC< which gives directions for their curative use. Beads of lapis Lazuli, malachite , and red jasper were worn around a sick person's neck so that the disease could pass through them and dissipate. The practice of placing or wearing stones on various areas of the body , with its amuletic links, was only part of the repertoire of healers in history. A particularly popular medicinal method was to pulverize gems, mix them with a liquid , and drink the result- the forerunner, perhaps, of mineral water. 

In 1746 Sir John Hill believed that it was the minerals which accounted for the curative powers. "Rogue" atoms of metals in some crystalline compositions are indeed responsible for the variety of colors available .Whether early civilizations knew of this link it is impossible to say, but certainly the mystical properties of gemstones were largely associated with color. When hematite is crushed it produces a red powder Hematite healing properties were linked with blood related conditions. 

The universal belief in the benefits of gemstone medicine began to erode in the early 16th century . One of the catalysis may have been the first systematic attempt at viewing mineralogy as a science.

In the 16th century it was discovered that the stones had a subtle effect on the body when worn; close t the bodies's subtle energy systems to bring about healing. The practice of taking gemstone powderers internally continued in high society , as might be expected, considering the high cost of the raw ingredients. 

By the beginning of the 20th century people were looking for a more scientific explanation for crystals healing. 

By the 1980's Marcel Bogel , a respected authority on crystals, had place the power of the crystals firmly in the scientific domain,. He suggested that the key to understanding their ancient knowledge lay in the connection between the vibrations sent out by the human mind and the perfect inner structure of the crystals. It has been proven that the human mind can indeed interact with the crystal to create effects on the body , mind and spirit.
