Quartz Healing Therapies - Overview

WARNING: Make sure to view the crystal safeguards info at the bottom of this page before using crystals in any way. "Stones may be harmful in certain situations or specific types of minerals (raw versus tumbled, Fibrous versus crystallized or mass) , whether it be in Elixirs or prolonged holding, bathing, touching to skin, etc."

Also, the book The Mystery of the Crystal Skulls points out the very important detail that:
There are in fact several other materials that look exactly the same as quartz crystal to the naked eye, including various types of plastics and glass. Even lead crystal, the material from which most glasses, decanters and other decorative objects are now made, is actually a type of glass and not crystal at all. Also, there is a lot of artificially manufactured or 'synthetic' quartz crystal around today.
This certainly has huge implications for individuals wishing to use quartz in a crystal elixir taken internally!

healing power of crystalsQuartz Physical Healing Energy

Clear Quartz is a master healer crystal, and may be used for any condition. It is thought to stimulate the immune and circulatory systems, enhancing energy flow and bringing the body into balance. It has been used to treat migraine headaches, vertigo, in stabilizing dizziness or motion sickness, and is believed to assist with metabolism, exhaustion, and weight loss. [Hall, 225][Melody, 506][Eason, 133][Megemont, 73]

A Crystal elixir taken internally has been used to eliminate toxins from the system and to aid in the treatment of digestive disorders, kidney and bladder infections, and to cure diarrhea. The indirect method of preparation is recommended. [Melody, 506][Megemont, 73]

Clear Quartz soothes painful or injured areas, especially burns, by drawing away pain and eliminating blistering. A topical elixir is also beneficial in treating skin disorders. [Melody, 506][Megemont, 73][Hall, 226]

Clear Quartz acts as a deep soul cleanser, purifying and enhancing the body's internal structure and surrounding subtle bodies to connect the physical dimension with the mind. It focuses on inner negativity and stimulates positive thoughts and feelings in its place. With a better perception of the world, Quartz increases awareness and clarity in thinking, and provides enhanced energy, perseverance and patience, teaching one to live, laugh and love with all of humanity. [Hall, 225][Melody, 504][Gienger, 28]

chakra balancing with crystalsQuartz Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy

Because Clear Quartz has the prismatic ability to vibrate its energy at all of the color frequencies, it not only harmonizes all of the chakras, but can teach us how to vibrate our seven chakra centers simultaneously while maintaining perfect alignment with the light. [Raphaell, 51]

Clear Quartz is particularly useful for stimulating the Crown Chakra. The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head, and is our gateway to the expanded universe beyond our bodies. It controls how we think, and how we respond to the world around us. It is the fountainhead of our beliefs and the source of our spirituality. It connects us to the higher planes of existence and is the source of universal energy and truth. When the Crown is in balance, our energies are in balance. We know our place in the universe and see things as they are. We are unruffled by setbacks, knowing they are an essential part of life.

-In response, the article states that crystals are used to 'heal' a persons aura and chakras. The word 'heal', if one understands this practice, is truly a misnomer. There is no evidence to disprove that this therapy is not beneficial for humans, and plenty of evidence and situational testimony to show it may in fact contain some merit.

There have in fact been double-blind, quadruple blind even, trials and tests documented by researchers at Athens state university, led by Joe H. Slate, PH.D., documented in a book entitled "Aura Energy - for Health Healing & Balance". The tests and studies first prove the existence of the Aura, the chakras, and their ability to be manipulated in such a way to show a positive result on subjects
This video gives a good overview on crystals. It doesn't matter if you believe crystals are alive or not! :)

6 -7 Inch Selenite Massage Wand, Reiki, Chakra, Crystal Healing

By Jennifer Martinez on December 14, 2012
Verified Purchase
Known for healing, negative energy banishing and absorption, Selenite is the best Crystal/stone to keep close at hand.

This wand is a generous and comfortable size.. fits perfectly within my hand, as well as my daughter's. You can feel it's healing and positive energies.

When I had a Migraine, I slept with Selenite closest to the area that hurt the worst, within an hour, the pain was almost completely gone... never during a Migraine has anything, even pills worked that well.

I love this beauty! An amazingly healing tool. Before I opened the package I could feel the energy coming from this mother of stones. I originally purchased it for it's cleansing and migraine care, but later found that it can help correct any time of bone problems. I have suffered with a coccyx (tailbone) injury for the last two years. It had gotten so bad I was using canes and crouches to get around my home. I could not bend down to pick up things and lifting a pound of canned peaches was excruciating. I was almost certain I would need surgery to correct the problem. But when I learned that Selenite can be used for skeletal disorders, I move it from under my pillow to the center of my back when I slept. I thought laying on this thing would cause discomfort, yet I figured I can't be in any more pain than I already am. Within a few days, I was literally healing. Now after a month I have resume my regular household duties; cleaning, cooking, laundry etc. I can sit without constant pain. AND I DON"T HAVE TO WALK WITH A CANE. HALLELUYAH!
I've traded my daily dose of Ibuprophen for a good night sleep laying on my Selenite. It's also great for clearing negative energy, especially when light is applied. I use a rainbow light display to give it alternating color infusion while I meditate or to cleanse my other crystals. Holding it up to a slim flash light gives you the intensity of holding a full moon in the palm of your hand. It facilitates resetting and channeling positive vibes and it's beauty is captivating.
Crystal Safeguards

This page contains geological data that cautions one when using certain types of crystals/minerals. While most in the metaphysical/spiritual community only speak of the higher purpose properties, common sense must be taken into consideration when using these on a physical level. This page is a cautionary measure on stones that may be harmful in certain situations or specific types of minerals (raw versus tumbled, Fibrous versus crystallized or mass) , whether it be in Elixirs or prolonged holding, bathing, touching to skin, etc.

It is not meant to perpetuate fear or anxiety, but instead to educate and share our deep respect for the crystal and mineral kingdom. Most on the list are geared toward internal use with a few being cautionary for external use. A good rule of thumb is to make sure you wash your hands after using any crystal/mineral. It keeps our mineral friends clean and is a great way to show respect to ourselves and our crystal/mineral family.

Pay particular attention to the list when you are working with raw/natural specimens. I do not think tumbled (coated) stones, for the most part, would be harmful, with a few exceptions, such as Realgar.

NOTE: Before making any elixir or charging any water, it is a good idea to double check for any possible toxicity that may occur, if using several stones in combination, for elemental reactions between the stones. In fact, it would be best if each stone charges in its own container of water as opposed to putting four or five stones in the same container.

*If you have any doubt (or are new to crystals and their chemical composition), simply place the crystal/stone around and outside of the container. You will still get the same results.*
