Each stone has its own unique property!

While doctors and scientist have difficulty in believing in the healing properties of crystals, many people agree to the fact that this method of healing does work. These therapies date back to at least 6,000 years ago and were used by the ancient Egyptians to heal sick people.  What you must understand is that each rock has its own unique properties. The color, the texture, and the shape of these stones all have some sort of special meaning to it.

Calcite is basically calcium carbonate, and calcium is the main constituent of the skeletal system.  Therefore, this particular rock is often used for mending the fractures of bones. Hematite is an iron oxide, and since iron helps to maintain red blood cells in the body and aids in oxygenating the blood, hematite is used to treat anemia along with other circulatory problems. Malachite is mainly copper and therefore it is used to reduce inflammation and for treating illnesses such as osteoarthritis.

Some common therapies include:

One of the most common crystal therapies includes meditation. It is believed that these gemstones and crystals call out to you. If you feel attracted to a particular stone, then it might be meant for you. Holding gemstones or a crystal while you meditate can help in relaxing the mind, soul, and body.

Another most common crystal therapy is color therapy.  This therapy uses the vibrational frequency of colors to make changes and to rebalance the body. The client is either asked to wear some certain colors of clothing, or is made to sit in a dark room with a light box, and is then made to bathe in a particular color of light for a particular period of time. Crystals are chosen according to the color.

For example, if the client happens to be suffering from an intestinal problem then the corresponding color would be orange and a carnelian can be used to treat this problem. An amethyst is also said to be to be beneficial for intestines. Meanwhile, the green aventurine is for the heart and the yellow topaz helps to provide mental clarity.

The simplest form of crystal therapy is to sleep with these rocks right beside you. Having an aragonite, quartz, amethyst, and copper placed right beside you, while you happen to have a jade under your pillow will surely help you out. These crystals are said to control the energy flow in and out of the body and keeping these rocks with you the entire time can help keep your mind at peace. These crystal therapies are preferred by many people who wish to get themselves healed in a natural way.
