Since ancient times, humanity has used crystals, gemstones, and various other earth elements as a means of natural, emotional, and physical healing. Long before the western dominance of psychiatric practices and prescription drug fixes, there was knowledge of the natural healing power of a stone from the earth. The vibrations vary greatly, as do people, and are suitable for many different purposes. The metaphysical properties of stones and crystals resonate with different people, for different reasons, at different times and occasions. There is collective research of the practice, exploring ancient folklore of various cultures, the science of psychology, and observation of patterns in human behavior. That is truly what makes the customizable #organite such a valuable one.
Many indigenous cultures have awareness of the power of crystals, but the mainstream population does not value it as such. Rather than call it a medicine or a practice or a ritual or a craft, I refer to it as a healing art. It is an art form for various reasons, based on the elements, earth, and hands that have shaped it. It is also an art form for the simple fact that is gives an emotional response and elevation of vibration akin to prayer and therapy. It helps to aid the ancient energy healing of the chakras, known as Reiki, as well as a basi. Emotional Healing through a simple, natural connection to earth. It is unfortunately overshadowed by the science of government and the big pharma organization with their hands in everyone's pocket. To keep them coming back for more, and the quick fix of prescription of salesmanship.
I am not saying that crystals can heal the sickly, but I'm also not saying they can't. The truth is, the emotional state and mental health of the people in today's society is unstable. The beauty of the crystals is their ability to clear the negative energies that possess our minds and sometimes bodies. There are many ancient beliefs which attest to this, many of which are part of the Eastern health philosophies, Vedic practice, Chinese medicine, Feng Shui, Yoga, and Reiki. Luckily, an awakening is underway for the ones who seek these kinds of healings.
What led people to discover the magic of crystals, you may wonder? Perhaps it was the evolving search for beauty and meaning that led to a seemingly magical quality of a dazzling gemstone? After all, when you combine beauty with practicality, it can certainly shine through. Form and Function is an ancient Greek philosophy that discusses this divine quality and combination. Perhaps even in the darkest times of great emotional stress and in an age that is strained from a broken society, the great healing power of mother earth can shine through to us.
There are some customs which have stuck around, based on crystal healing, all having an underlying truth. Sadly, these half-truths have been twisted and altered for the gain of greed and politics. The common knowledge of a birthstone goes no further than to suffice as a mass produced gift on a Hallmark Holiday. The diamond industry for the sale of marriages. So the knowledge of crystal healing, and the true meaning is lost in so many ways (and a critical discussion for another day).
Regardless of the bling-greed that seemingly dominates society, the truth of the matter (at the core of our society’s sick obsession) is out there for the seekers. The internet is full of interesting information that has carried through into our modern culture. It is best to research at your local bookstores, or consult with an expert or healer in your area, as the internet may have just as much incorrect information as it does have valuable. The Age of Aquarius has shed light on these esoteric truths that span eras and cultures across the globe. There are various belief systems involving them, and perhaps that is what gives it such a rich character. The diversity of it all has an underlying connection of beautiful magnitude which can bring us all together, in nature, in love, and in harmony. Let your love shine and your truth speak, and come to know the healing magic of crystals, and join me each week for an enlightening perspective of the splendid plethora.
