The world we live in can feel fast-paced, harried, and hectic. So many people run around all day, struggling to complete their to-do list, running from home to work and back again, and cramming errands in along the way. Many people feel disconnected from the earth, disconnected from other people, and even disconnected from themselves. It can be difficult to find the time to slow down, to take in our surroundings, to focus on ourselves and others. As a result, we may become out of touch with what we need and what others need from us. We may experience vague symptoms or feel off-kilter. Many times, medical treatments fail to help because there is no real medical problem.
More and more people are turning to alternative healing methods because they are looking for a way to heal their spirit and their soul. Healing crystals have the power to change the energy within our bodies, to channel positive energy and ward off negative energy. In doing so, healing crystals can renew our bodies and souls. Handmade, healing crystal jewelry can serve as one route to reorient ourselves and establish a new dynamic with others and with our surroundings.
Alternative Healing With Crystals
The practice of using crystals for healing dates back to over 6000 years ago, to the Sumerians of Mesopotamia. Other ancient cultures, including the Egyptians and Chinese, have utilized the healing properties of crystals as well. Certain crystals and gemstones carry specific healing properties. Wearing this healing crystal jewelry can refocus your energies, drawing in positive energy and removing toxic energies.
For example — in Judaic traditions, one might have adorned themselves with various gemstones before entering the inner section of the Temple. The favored gemstones in the Jewish beliefs and traditions were called Stones of the Choshen, and there were 12 — one for each of the 12 tribes. Lapis- Lazuli, the stone of Issachar, represented understanding and medicinal intuition, while Amethyst, the stone of Naftali, helped to ground and balance a person. They believed specific stones on specific parts of the body were necessary to be in the presence of Yahweh. You should choose the crystal based on your specific symptoms, as different crystals are suited for different treatments.
Healing With Turquoise
Turquoise has a long history as a healing crystal, especially among Native American and Chinese cultures. Among alternative healers, turquoise is recognized for its power to circulate the body’s internal energy and open channels for clear communication. If you are struggling with a personal relationship, turquoise can ease the communication between you and the other person and allow healing to progress. If you are trying to change old behaviors and establish new, healthier habits, turquoise handmade jewelry can help you with that change. Turquoise is often used in healing crystal jewelry for protection, strength, or purification.
