Introduction to Crystal Healing
A brief history

Crystals and other gemstones have been used in healing by many different cultures and civilizations for many
thousands of years. In ancient Egypt the healing properties were renown, the Egyptians would grind down
crystals and drink them for their "magical" healing properties, as would the people of the Roman empire who
also made goblets and other artefacts using gemstones.

What's the magic secret?

There is no magical secret! Crystals, like everything else on this planet are made of energy, store energy and
conduct energy.

A bit scientific

We understand that everything in existence is made up of the atom. We are made of atoms, your computer
screen is made of atoms, and the plants in your garden are made of atoms.

Atoms are an energy! Atoms react to other energy, for example when subjected to heat, the atoms in water
turn the water into steam. Steam is simply water atoms moving or vibrating very fast, so fast that we find them
hard to see.

Just because we can't see them, doesn't mean they are not there! It is a fact that energy can not be
created or destroyed.

Our energy body

Our physical bodies are made up of slow moving atoms, around our physical body is another energy field
called our aura. Our aura is made up of energy vibrating at an extremely fast rate or frequency.

We can sometimes feel part of our aura by holding our hand 2-3 inches above our body and feeling the
sensation of heat. We can feel the heat energy emitting from our body, but we can't see it.

Energy enters our body through energy "wheels" called chakras, our energy body is made up of 7 major
chakras, which each direct energy to different areas of our body, through various pathways. In crystal healing,
therapists often place crystals on the chakras to stimulate them and promote healing.

Every living thing needs energy to survive. Energy is found in heat, food, light, air etc... However there are
many other things which can boost the amount of energy that enters our body, as well as things which can
deplete our energy sources. Have you ever felt very energetic, then spoken to somebody who has told you
their problems and felt very tired or weak? - that person will have taken some of your energy!

Having crystals in our environment, wearing them or carrying them are ways to boost our energy levels.
Energy in us, is like petrol in a car, having a "full tank" of energy means that we can move forward.

Mind, body and spirit

It is commonly believed that if we do not have enough energy we become un well; firstly in our mind and
then in our physical body. If we think negative thoughts, or if other people think badly of us energy is restrict-
ed from moving through us. If we don't receive the energy we should then a part of us will not function
properly, it will then become ill. If we continue to restrict the energy from entering us, our illness will become
worse. We can increase the energy we are subject to in many ways, by eating healthily, drinking healthily,
taking exercise, thinking positively, spending time with nature, being around positive people, wearing and
being around crystals....

How crystals work

Crystals are a natural product, formed within the earth (or in some cases from outer space). Crystals each hold
and conduct their own frequencies of energy, (due to the speed at which the energy vibrates) This energy is
scientifically known as electromagnetic energy.

The different energy frequencies of different crystals effect different parts of our mind and body.

By placing that particular crystal in our environment we will naturally take the energy the crystal conducts and
use it in our own body. If we are lacking that particular energy then it will fill our "energy tanks" therefore
helping to heal any problems which the lack of energy caused. If we have enough of that kind of energy, then
we simply won't use it, and it won't effect us in any way. Crystals help us to heal ourselves.

Cleansing crystals

As your crystals will be working very hard to increase your energy levels, it is important to let them have a
rest, to cleanse them, and to let them recharge. One way to do this is to:

1) Wash the crystal in cold running water or salt water

2) Leave them on the window sill or outside for 48 hours to absorb both solar and lunar energies

Try not to let other people handle your personal crystals, as this will pass their energies (good & bad) onto
them. If somebody does handle them remember to cleanse and recharge them again.

Using your crystals

The easiest way to benefit from your crystals is to wear them. You may also:
• Bathe with them
• Carry them in your pocket / purse
• Mount them in jewellery
• Keep them on a shelf, on your TV or anywhere in your house or office
• Give them away - crystals make wonderful gifts

Crystal facts

• You can not be harmed by crystal energy

• Crystals will work without you thinking about them
• Crystals will work without you even believing in them
• Crystals will work simply by being in the same environment as them
• Crystals have been, and are used by many different religions and cultures.

Disclaimer: Thousands of people throughout the world practice crystal healing, use healing crystals and claim that healing
and life changes have been attributed to crystals and gemstones. The information in this booklet and on the grailstones.co.uk
website is based on opinions, experiences and beliefs of Crystal Healers and peoples experiences of using crystals and
gemstones, the information should not be treated as scientific or medical fact. Crystal Healing and using the energies of
crystals to heal is a healing method complimentary to traditional medicine. Crystal healing should in no way replace traditional
medical attention.

The Chakras
For thousands of years in the cultures of India, Tibet and the eastern world, the chakras have been acknowl-
edged as gateways to our physical and mental health and well-being.

Our bodies are made up of an electromagnetic energy sometimes known as the aura. The chakras are respon-
sible for directing and distributing this energy throughout our body.

There are seven main chakra points on our body, each chakra is responsible for distributing energy to
different organs, nerves, muscles and other parts of our being.

In Sanskrit, the ancient Indian language, the word chakra means "wheel" or "vortex", this is exactly what the
chakras are, vortexes of energy. The Tibetan cultures and healers saw the chakras as lotus flowers, each with
a different number of petals, and each bearing its own ancient symbol, at the centre of the lotus flower was a
mantra (a sacred sound). By visualising the lotus flower, its symbol or repeating its mantra it is possible to
activate and balance the chakra.

For our mind and body to function healthily, each of our chakras needs to be balanced, in other words we
need to take in as much energy as we need. The amount of energy we take is effected by our lifestyle, what
we eat, the amount of exercise we do, stress, smoking, drinking alcohol etc.. If we lead an unhealthy lifestyle
our chakras can become blocked, not enough energy will get to parts of our body, and therefore our body will
then become dis-eased.
