Crystal Healing as an alternative therapy and holistic practice has a history spanning centuries. The Aztec, early Roman and ancient Egyptian civilizations, to name a few, have a long history of using natural healing stones.
Today, the practice is more likely to be seen as a pseudo science, or completely disregarded as mumbo-jumbo. However there are also many people, who are firmly committed to the use natural healing stones and who will swear by their effectiveness and the benefits they offer when used for health.
I am one of those people, who uses the gems and know the positive impact they have. So I am very pleased to offer this natural healing crystals guide.
How Do Natural Healing Crystals Work?
The impact comes from the crystalline structure. Each type of crystal has a unique structure, a unique chemical composition and coloration.
Dependent upon where they are found, and the surrounding environment, each variety of crystal will also have differing structural compounds such as other minerals that become embedded and over time have formed part of the crystalline structure.
This structure causes the healing crystals to resonate or vibrate at a certain frequency.
I am sure you remember from your school science lessons being taught that every object in existence takes their physical, liquid or gas form dependent upon the particles they consist of, and the formation and movement patterns (vibration) is what holds them together.
All matter is made up of atoms, which are far too small to see even with the most powerful light microscopes. These particles, in all states of matter, are in constant motion. The particles in solids vibrate about fixed positions.Victoria Education Dept.
Crystal healing works because of this vibration. By applying a certain crystals resonance or vibration to a specific health, physical or emotional, need within a person we use the crystal like a tuning fork, and restore our body to the correct harmony.
One of the most well known of all scientific studies of natural healing crystals was that of a research scientist Marcel Vogel, who for 27 years worked at the IBM San Jose Research Center.
While he was watching crystals grow under a microscope, he noticed that the crystals took the form and shape of whatever he was thinking about.
He hypothesized that the way the crystals could do this was because of a constant assembling and disassembling of bonds between the crystals molecules was due to specific patterns of vibration.
His research indicated that crystals and rock structures were able to store thoughts, in a similar way to how old fashioned tapes used magnetic energy to record and store sound.
The crystal is a neutral object whose inner structure exhibits a crystalline state of perfection and balance.
When it is precisely cut to the proper geometric form and when the human mind enters into relationship with its structural perfection in the vibration of love, the crystal emits a vibration which extends and amplifies the power and grasp of the user’s mind. Imaged thought intent is amplified.Marcel Vogel
The evidence from Marcel Vogel and other notable scientists, on the topic of healing stones, is remarkably clear.
There is indeed evidence of the healing crystals positive impact and evidence that therapies using healing stones show positive results.
This is evidenced in the research article – The Scientific Analysis of Crystals. The following is a quote from this article.
Not only does the evidence show that it is indeed possible to focus intent into quartz crystals and have them retain information and carry out beneficial functions, but it also shows that the same can be done with the water you drink and quite possibly the food you eat, as well as potentially everything else around you.The Scientific Analysis Of Crystals
The use of natural healing crystals helps us restore stability and balance to our bodies energetic system.
By using a specific crystal in a certain manner we stimulate the body’s chakra system, the energy centers, which in turn triggers our natural healing mechanism.
We then direct balanced and aligned energy to the chakra centers and meridian points where it is needed.
Using this healing crystals guide I hope will give you confidence and the desire to adopt this wonderful art.
Healing Stones and Crystal therapy provides safe, holistic and non-invasive healing. It harmonizes our energy and has a direct impact on our body, mind and spiritual balance.

How To Get Started With Our Natural Healing Crystals Guide
There are hundreds of different types of crystals to choose from, each with a unique vibration and function in healing.
Far too many to mention here! In future posts I will give further detail about specific types of healing crystals and their usage.
Natural Crystals help to balance and align our Chakras beautifully and allow our body’s energy system to restore itself through the vibration of each stone.
Our crystals guide covers the 7 Chakras and associated crystals(and their properties). This selection of stones are perfect for those just starting out with crystals or those with years of experience.
Programming Your Chosen Crystal – Natural Healing Crystals Guide
Programming your chosen crystals is a actually very simple.
Step 1 – Cleanse Your Crystal.
You can choose any method of clearing that you prefer. Choose the method that resonates with you or makes you feel most comfortable.
- You can pass your crystal through Smudge (burning sage) smoke, Frankincense Resin or Copal Incense.
- Place your crystal outside under the light of the sun or the full moon for at least 4 hours.
- Bury the crystal in the Earth, allowing them to recharge with Earthly energies.
- Soak your crystals in salted water (be sure not to soak soft crystals like Selenite – it will dissolve in water)
- Bury your crystals in rock salt overnight (ensure you dispose of the salt afterwards – it should be buried or even flushed down the loo!)
- If a smaller crystal, place them on Clear Quartz or Selenite crystals. This will clear and cleanse any energies not aligned to your better health.
Step 2 – Focus Upon Your Crystals.
Hold your crystal in your palms and close your eyes.
Take three long deep breaths.
Now focus on the Higher Universal Knowledge, or Mother Earth, or God – whatever higher vibration or source that you have faith in.
When you feel that you are attuned to this higher vibration and the higher spiritual energies, ask that the crystals you hold be cleared of any and all unwanted energies or previous programming.
You should say out loud or internally:
“I ask the higher vibrations of the Universe, the highest vibrations that enable love and light which are now connected to me and my highest self, I ask that my crystals are cleared of all unwanted and unneeded energies and all and any previous programming. I program and declare that this crystal will hold my intention of (add your own intention here… what purpose do you program the crystal for, what are you asking the crystal to achieve through your will). Thank you, Thank you, Thank you”
Once you have programmed your crystal then there are many ways to use them to aid healing:
Step 3 – Use Them For Healing
Have them in the same room as you.
It really is that simple.
Once you have chosen your crystal it will become aligned to your vibration. Don’t worry if this sounds far fetched, and you don’t even need to believe me, just have faith and believe in your crystals. Being in the same space as your crystals enables you to benefit from their vibration and resonance.
Either place them beside you, or if you intend to lay prone place each crystal on the associated chakra center.
Fondle them, feel their energy, let the vibrations of the crystal act as a “tuning fork” and return your chakra energy to it’s correct vibration and energetic state..
Wear them as jewelry
If there is a specific aspect of your health, or specific chakra you want to focus on you can wear the associated crystal. If you are not a jewelry wearer just keep some in your pocket.

Clear Quartz – Natural Healing Crystals Guide.
One of the best in our healing crystals guide, the clear quartz amplifies our intention, making it an absolute necessity in any crystal collection.
It is the most versatile of the healing stones because it magnifies the energies of any other crystals around it.
Clear quartz wands can be used to clear, cleanse and energize your other crystals. The clear quartz has powerful cleansing effects and can dispel even the toughest energy blocks.
Sit in quiet contemplation with your quartz. Feel its white energetic light and vibration fill your body with positive energy. Contemplate on your intention for your quartz crystal and have faith in the manifesting of your intent.
Selenite – Natural Healing Crystals Guide.
Selenite is another favorite in our healing crystals guide. It is a powerful cleanser.
Selenite maintains positive vibrations between you and your other crystals.
Use Selenite to clear and rid yourself of any negative energies. Simply run your Selenite crystal down your body,starting at the top of your head and moving towards your feet.
This will remove any negativity or blocked energy from your physical body as well as your aura.
Repeat this movement until you feel you are cleared of negativity and filled with positive vibrations.
