Already as a little kid, I was fascinated with stones. Their variety, forms, colors, and texture. I felt some were speaking to me and those I would keep and carry around for a while and then store them in my little treasure box. I still have them somewhere. I would spend hours playing with them, and sometimes building tiny structures and house-like formations. Sometimes I would crush small, soft gravel between two big ones to make stone dust. Most of these stones were quite common, simple rocks, of course, some with quartz, silicate, and silverish glittering in it, but they were no gemstones.
Crystal Energy Healing came to me when I was in my early twenties. I was a young medical student to become a Veterinary doctor. The only physical issue that bothered me every now and then was my throat. Already back then, I was interested in all of the complementary, alternative, and natural healing methods despite walking the academic path of allopathic medicine.
As an intuitive empath and very perceptive person, I consciously inquired in meditation, contemplation, and by talking to my inner guidance about what to do with my sensible throat.
I very clearly heard the words crystal energy and Chalcedony. When I listened to my inner voice, there was never second-guessing.
So, I started to look out for crystals, and not long after, I was attracted to a blue Chalcedony necklace in a store.
It didn’t take long for me to notice the positive effect this crystal had on my throat. I started to experiment also with other gemstones and felt the power and mystic energy these crystals emit.
Back then, I had no idea about Chakras, let alone the ancient knowledge about Crystal Energy Healing. From that time, I was not only mesmerized by the beauty but also the enormous energy and life, these crystals communicated to me. Gems find me, and I could tell many stories of how and why.
I use crystals in my healing work when I am explicitly called to let them participate in an Energy Healing Session. In many cases, I know beforehand which one I shall wear, bring to the healing room, or to put on the client’s body. I also perceive if a person would benefit from wearing or using a crystal, and which specific gem this would be.
Since my first Crystal Healing experience, my collection of these precious Earth-gifts grew substantially. I have them in all possible variations and forms, including sacred geometry. I still prefer the raw, crude healing crystals for meditation and my work with patients. Nevertheless, bracelets and necklaces come very handily if one needs to wear them for a while. For reflection or meditation, you might want to choose a bigger one that you can look at in front of you, or one small enough to hold in your hand while being in silence. These precious gifts of Mother Earth offer their healing grace in so many ways. Yes, even to those who merely see them as a piece of jewelry.
I personally encourage you to not get lost in all the information on the internet about healing crystals. Learn to become self-reliant and take back your intuitive power. Speak, meditate, and play with the gemstones you feel drawn to, and trust your instinct! Your accurate intuition will come back to you when you allow it, and when you give yourself permission and time.
