Throughout history crystal healing has been documented dating as far back as 1600 BC, where an Egyptian Papyrus gave instructions for crystals healing use. Beads of various stones were worn around the neck of the patient so that the disease could pass through them and dispel.
Different cultures throughout history also revealed that crystals had a tangible effect when worn or placed on the body's energy systems for vibrational healing. All matter is made up of energy and resonates at a particular vibration. When a human body is ill the energy fields surrounding it change in its vibration. Crystals however, are set in their formation and do not alter their vibration, get sick or out of balance.
By placing crystals on the human body they assist the human mind and body to get back to its health state and back to its healthy vibration.
Over time we will explore different crystals and their uses. My favourite crystal is AMETHYST; I love the various shades of purple and mauve in this crystal. The colour purple has always been my beloved colour all my life, now as an adult working in the energy field I know why. Amethyst is the stone of 'Spirituality and Contentment'.
The name Amethyst come from Ancient Greek :: a - ("not") and methustos ("intoxicated").
This stone has historically been used to encourage and sustain sobriety, assisting in independence from addictions. In Ancient Greeks and Romans believed that drinking from cups created from amethyst was a cure for drunkenness.
This stone brings a sense of calm that dispels anxiety, fear and anger. A piece of amethyst under the marital bed will aid in tranquility in a marriage and prevent arguments. Placing amethyst throughout your home will promotes a calm well being protective environement.
In the book of Exodus, the High Priest Aaron (Brother of Moses) was instructed by God to make a breast plate from specific crystals to wear for protection and wisdom. To this day this crystal is known as the Bishop's Stone and is still worn by Catholic Bishops. Amtheyst symbolizes Godliness, sincerity and wisdom.
This is a great crystal for those who suffer with headaches or migraines, like me. I place refrigerated crystals of amethyst on my temples to alleviate the pain.
