How do Healing Crystals Work?
Healing with gemstones, how it works.

How in the world can a rock help us to heal? The idea of a stone healing a human being must seem ridiculous to anyone who has yet to experience it.
Keep in mind that our entire bodily system is nothing more than energy that shows up in various patterns and densities. Our thoughts and our feelings are connected to our physical bodies and have a density of their own. We are all built pretty much the same. Diversity has its place, and we are all individuals, yet nature created patterns that work the same in all of us to keep our hearts beating, our blood flowing, and so on. When these patterns of energy work together in a balanced way then we experience our health.
These patterns can be disrupted. When this happens we experience poor health. This can be anything from a headache to the worst that you can imagine in terms of poor health, even disease. Hence the popular splitting of the word (dis-ease) for harmony feels good and disharmony doesn’t. Balance is easy on us, and imbalances feel not at ease, or dis-eased. Nature will heal itself if it can. It will if we let it. It is ourselves who distort this harmony with our lop-sided outlooks and behavior. Correcting this lop-sidedness one way or another is what healing is all about. Healing it in a natural way is much preferred.
Anything with an inherent harmony can act like a tuning fork to our poor patterns and challenge us to retune ourselves to return to the original organic natural patterns of energy that belong to our bodies. A good piece of art can work wonders, as well as music, dance, a pleasant person, or anything else exhibiting integrity in terms of energy patterns. Anything can heal us if we are open to suggestion by external tuning fork of another’s harmony. Receptivity is a necessity. Being open to it is the key.
Gemstones radiate pure patterns. Gemstones resonate with unmatched consistency. Gemstones sing their incredible songs of structure, balance, wavelength and frequency and can bring us back into harmony. Raw energy establishes patterns on an initial primal scale when it takes the form of subatomic particles. These particles combine and cooperate to produce atoms, molecules and minerals. Mother Nature ushers forth all that is possible in the natural world, building up its complexity from the mineral kingdom to the plant kingdom and on to the animal kingdom. As human beings, our bodies are an incredible and complex masterpiece of nature’s organization and balance.
Nature repeats itself over and over again. Once it finds a pattern that works, it builds on it. Every kingdom and species less complex than our human form is in a sense a testing field for patterns and systems that work. We are all us, the entire natural world built with the same patterns—the same materials. This is how we can heal each other. The patterns are the same, yet the integrity can falter. Getting close to beings with a high integrity is good for us, and helps us to align to that integrity.
Each stone resonates with a slightly different pattern geometrically. These same geometric patterns reside in our systems, organs, etc. To hold a Rose Quartz up to our heart is to ask the structural patterns active in our subtle bodies to align themselves and operate effortlessly and with purity. Any unresolved heart issues will be challenged to break up, allowing us to let go of whatever is distorting our energies. One often experiences a flash of imagery around the past experience that initially caused the distortion.
Gemstones are living creatures. They are active participants in nature. Protons, neutrons and electrons are flying around in an absolute bliss of balance and participation, upholding patterns of sacred geometry. Yes, geometry is sacred because nothing could be built in the natural world without it. Biology is math. Nature is an exploration of possibility through patterns that work in balance, creating the living, behaving, and interactive world that we all live in—in and through.
Healing is often a matter of recovering our bodies inherent harmony by letting go of what we are holding onto— our own ideas about how, where, when, what and why—mental frameworks that have us behaving in inorganic ways. Our organic ways are right there to be expressed and experienced effortlessly. Mother Nature takes care of it all, if we can only learn to respect her and surrender to her wisdom—the wisdom of spontaneity, joy, accepting all others as equal, and together sharing in her abundance.

The belief that gemstones contain healing properties is as ancient as mankind. For thousands of years leaders in religion and government, including priests and pharaohs, have written about gemstones as healing agents in humans. The ancient Egyptians, Mayans, Greeks, Chinese, and Vedic Cultures in India all have used gemstones in ritualistic, sacramental, and healing ceremonies. More than 5000 years ago, Ayurvedic Medicine was incorporating gems and minerals with herbs to restore balance in patients with illnesses. Ayurveda or "Science of Life" derives from the Sanskrit words "ayus" meaning longevity and "veda" meaning related to knowledge or science. Being in harmony and balance with nature was the key to Ayurvedic Medicine and wearing or ingesting gemstones was used with other treatments to restore that balance in life. Roman soldiers wore Citrine on their chest plates believing it would protect them in battle, and Cleopatra always carried a piece of Chrysocolla with her as she traveled as an ambassador, believing in the gemstone's ability to make one more sensitive and tolerant of others.
During the Renaissance era, Paracelsus or Phillippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus Von Hohenheim was a noted.
Physician and Alchemist who pioneered the use of chemicals and minerals in medicine. In his words "there is only one source of health: the irresistible, wise, limitless powerful healer within us. This healer has been weakened and obstructed through careless habits of living. When I want to treat a person, the only thing I attempt to do is to restore the healing power within." Working to reestablish the balance of minerals in the patient’s body, Paracelsus would distinguish between the chemical and the elemental powers that reside within the stones, noting that the two works together to relieve symptoms and treat the cause of the illness to help avoid reoccurrence.
In recent history, mankind has harnessed the power of gemstones to run inventions such as watches, computers, and televisions. Crystals have been shown to generate, regulate, receive and store electromagnetic energy and light. Each gemstone offers a different wavelength that is attuned to different ailments. Wearing a piece of jewelry, mindful of the healing properties of each stone in the design, is a great way to assist your inner healing mechanism.
Because the composition of the human body is around 60% water, placing a healing gemstone on your body will send electromagnetic waves from the stone through the water in your body. All your water will succumb to the vibration level of the gemstones, saturating your systems with the healing current. This is life force energy that connects all things in the universe. You do not have to believe this to be true in order for this vibrational shift to occur, however, the intensity or "dose" of healing current will be dramatically affected by the intention of your thoughts, much the same way that a sailboat travels much better when there are stronger winds.
