Crystal therapy and healing… What is this magic?! – Shannon Shine

I’ve personally studied crystal healing since my teenage years after my aunt gifted me an onyx necklace to help keep the negative energies away that I was feeling so harshly in my high school life. Of course many transforming teenagers feel this and don’t often really know why. After receiving the onyx beaded necklace and learning how to take care of it properly, I was able to focus the energy around me that I couldn’t handle into the crystals.

Now I won’t say my high school years went totally smoothly after that. I did of course have the occasional heartbreak and meltdown, but overall I felt a change. Some may say this was the placebo effect, I beg to differ. I decided crystal energy may really be a thing after receiving a rose quartz from a friend. I had been told that rose quartz was good for attracting love and soon after receiving the crystal I had a very important love interest come into my life (my first real boyfriend relationship, which lasted up to about 3 years) who stayed until I lost that same rose quartz! In times of need of counsel and spiritual connection I would often be gifted some sort of amethyst, and in times I was in need of a bit of abundance a jade or aventurine may appear and the list can go on.

12087508_10156087286475371_886633586_nThough it is currently considered a pseudoscience, Crystal Healing has been used since the ancient times. There is very little scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of crystal healing on a medical level. However, crystals have been used, revered and enjoyed for many thousands of years, for their aesthetic beauty and for the peace, relaxation and harmony they attract. They can give support in times of fear, lack of confidence, anxiety, trauma, and other distressing situations. Coupled with the energy, focus, and intention, put into the crystal they can help create a generator of positive energy to make things happen for us.

Each crystal and gemstone has its own energy vibration. The energy that they transmit can have powerful effects on the different energy vibrations in a human being. It helps to clear blocked energy in our body, attune our mind, body, spirit and emotions, and brings our energy field back into balance. Through this balancing and attuning, they are said to be able to help us to heal.

Crystal therapy is based on the premise that crystals can, in a sense, communicate with the energies flowing around the human body. On a microscopic level a crystal is a network of repeating geometric patterns made up of compressed ions, atoms and molecules. According to crystal therapy, every crystal has its own unique electromagnetic charge. These charges, or ‘healing vibrations’ are supposed to interact with the body’s energy centers to remove ‘blockages’ and restore a healthy flow through the body and mind.

Crystal therapists choose crystals carefully for each individuals needs. Shine Synergy designs also use this technique and information to create each combination for the collection and each combination is believed to have a unique power of its own. Once the crystal combinations are chosen certified crystal therapists then bead the chosen crystals into the different designs for a variety of jewelry and options.

As far as crystals go, I do believe the user of the crystals energy must first have some faith that it could work. The more faith you have the more it helps activate the energy within it. That is explained with the Law of Attraction and Manifestation. But, to be honest when my aunt first gifted me my crystal necklace and told me about the theory of crystal healing I must admit, I thought she was a bit “koo koo” if ya know what I mean. After looking more into it I have since used crystals for so many things and experienced dozens of miraculous events that I just cant even shrug off as coincidence. Crystal healing and therapy is an experience you have to try all on your own. Different crystals work differently for different people, much like medicines or essential oils. It is important to practice with different crystals and their energy. It is also very important to cleanse and clear your crystals properly.

Speaking of cleansing and clearing your crystals I hope to post another blog very soon on how to do so! So please check back in soon!
