There is a universal energy freely available to all and called chi in traditional Chinese medicine. Our bodies are 85% water, with a lot of electricity passing through it as nerves send messages along the body to and from the brain, with the brain producing a significant amount of the current itself. Overall, the body is a complex electromagnetic and vibrational energy system. With stress, poor eating and a lot of the negative energy around us in the form of mobile signals, wifi and electricity in the walls, our bodies can become imbalanced, which can lead to a host of physical, psychological and even emotional problems.
This chi energy is also referred to as life force, healing energy or divine energy and its balance in our bodies can be helped by such sciences as reiki, seichem, quantum touch, therapeutic touch, spiritual healing and crystal healing. Scientifically, energy and matter are interchangeable, and every piece of matter or liquid has within and surrounding it a certain amount of energy, which resonates at a particular vibration or frequency.
Crystal healing has been used in many different cultures throughout history, including the Hopi Native Americans of Arizona and the Hawaiian islanders, some of whom still use them to this day.
The clear quartz crystal is one of the most sacred stones of ancient cultures and symbolizes white light energy. The power of the crystal, some of which can take thousands of years to form, can be found in its structure, as it is a conductor of energy, acting both as a receiver and transmitter. When shattered, each fragment has the same shape, which the original, outer shape reflects. These inner structures (fragments) have seven basic shapes: cubic, tetragonal, trigonal, hexagonal, orthorhombic, monoclinic and triclinic. They are formed from silicon, the most prominent substance in the earth's core, and oxygen to form silicon dioxide, also known as quartz. Other elements added to the concoction create the different types of crystals with their varying qualities. These perfect electromagnetic conductors interact with our own energy system and have been found to activate certain energy centers to help in its balance.
They have been used for centuries in healing, the Egyptians even using them in pyramids to attract the power contained in light. The Egyptians are the earliest known to have used the crystals for their healing powers and who have even built entire crystal chambers, while traditional Chinese medicine has used it as far back as 5,000 years ago. The Tibetans believe that crystals are sacred objects empowered with the elements, and people of many cultures carry them on their bodies to protect them from negative energy. In the bible God instructed Aaron, the High Priest (brother of Moses), to make a breast plate from particular crystals for protection and wisdom.
In the human body, each emotion, body part and the water residing in it carries a particular frequency or vibration, and the correct balance as a whole defines its proper functioning. Similar to a television, if the frequency is not set properly the channel will come in fuzzy and unclear. Crystals can help the body and other living elements, such as plants or animals, "tune in" to a healthy and stable energy frequency. This is called the Theory of Resonance, since crystals have a set formation and their stable energy pattern helps the body, which may have gotten out of sync with itself and surroundings, to get back into balance - into a "healthy" vibrational pattern.
During a healing session a practitioner draws on the positive life energy of the universe and channels its healing powers into the client. This is the same healing practiced by such great masters as Jesus and does not require belief in such techniques by the client.
During the healing process I first use the crystal to develop an understanding of your condition by spinning it over your two lowest chakras (the Root and Spleen), the first chakra reflecting the first 7 years of your life while the second reveals the second seven years (ages 8 to 14). It is during these two periods that we are most crafted, while suffering or psychological trauma during these early years can leave lasting footprints or scars on our psychological identity and emotional balance. During these readings I may ask questions about your childhood and it is important that you are fully honest with me, to give me insight and allow me to help you better.
The seven chakras are the points of the body's energy as the chi flows through it and are a major factor in such ancient and powerful medical sciences as acupuncture, which inserts needles into the meridians of the body's energy flow to help bring balance back to it and heal specific ailments. Part of my crystal healing technique includes the placing of a Tibetan bowl onto some of your key chakras and cause the bowl to resonate, the vibration of which promotes the flow of energy through your body, clearing up blockages which have been causing your physical ailments or emotional or psychological imbalances. Each person is unique, and I adjust my approach accordingly, but generally the opening of positive energy through the body and bringing balance back to the body's energy flow achieves wonderful healing effects on many, often unexpected levels.
Once I have properly interpreted your condition and prepared your body, I then place my hands on different energy points and channel its flow to break up blockages and restore balance.
