What Is Crystal Healing?
Healing crystals are fascinating and potent objects that have more than a decorative purpose. Most crystals have a high vibration and multidimensional powers. Their magical properties and benefits have been recognized in all cultures and were widely used by healers, astrologers, and shamans. There is a huge tradition behind crystal healing. As endorsed by international energy workers, crystals can:
- Attract love and prosperity;
- Protect your home by balancing energies and harmonizing the atmosphere;
- Cleanse and invigorate both your aura and the environment;
- Energize and improve well-being by radiating good vibes;
- Absorb negative energies and ill-wishing
- Provide protection;
- Direct their healing power to a specific location in your body;
- Help you divine and change your future.
Note: Every body, every human being (as well as every crystal) is different. We all radiate different frequencies. Similarly, all crystals have different vibrations. There is no cure-all remedy, yet there are multi-purpose healing crystals.
Also, what can work for a person will not necessarily work for someone else. That is why it is important to clear your mind and open your heart when choosing a crystal. Try several crystals, hold them in your hand separately, and allow their energy to harmonize with you. You will feel which one is perfect for you.

As a quick refresh, we know that chakras are linkage points between our aura (the subtle body) and our physical body. Imbalances, blockages, or any disturbances of these energetical centers can create a disease. Such conditions manifest either in our physical or subtle body.
