An Introduction to Healing with Rocks & Crystals
Posted on July 26, 2012 by: Turiya's
Crystals, minerals, rocks, gems, or stones, here at Turiya’s we spend our days surrounded by these beautiful gifts of the earth. Each crystal has its own unique energy which radiates out infusing its properties into the space and living creatures around it. Whether you are searching for spiritual, mental, emotional, or physical comfort, the staff at Turiya’s can help direct you to the perfect stone at any price range. Each crystal comes with a complimentary description card detailing the healing meaning of the stone and its uses. These cards, written by the staff, combine the crystal research of internationally respected crystal healers, along with the experience and insights of Turiya’s owners and staff. With over twenty years of service to the Salt Lake City community, Turiya’s has become a by-word for those seeking crystal healing and knowledge.
Crystal energy healing techniques can vary widely depending on whether a single stone or multiple stones are being used. Many people like to carry a single stone in their pocket, for example a purple amethyst for serenity or a golden citrine for happiness. Stones may also be placed in special locations, for example, green and purple fluorite by computers to reduce the electromagnetic stress or pink calcite next to a bed to prevent nightmares. Another common energy healing technique is to create a medicine bag, in which several stones are combined so that their energies blend together for a common purpose, for example chakra balancing or protection while traveling. Crystal medicine bags can be carried in a pocket or purse or even worn around the neck. Make your own medicine bag at Turiya’s or ask the staff for help in putting together a magical collection for yourself or a loved one. Add a clear quartz to any collection to amplify the energy of the stones and see how quickly these crystals begin to positively affect your own life. Whether combating cancer or writing a novel, a crystal medicine bag is a powerful ally.
Stone lay-outs are another popular energy healing technique. Laying-on-of-stones is when minerals are placed on a person for physical or energetic purposes. For example, rose quartz might be laid on and around an individual to bring peace, self-love and forgiveness, while black tourmaline might be used for protection, to draw off negative energy, or to strengthen the immune system. While a trained crystal healer is recommended for optimal results, this simple form of healing can be preformed by anyone. Crystal-gridding follows a similar concept, but instead of stones being temporarily placed on an individual, the stones are set around a room, house, garden, or any other space to change or maintain a specific energy field. For example, orange carnelian may be used to ground and stabilize the energy in a home and encourage familial love, while green moss agate encourages plants to grow. Each of the more than 100 different crystals available at Turiya’s year-round have a wide-range of energetic properties. Come enjoy the potent energy of Turiya’s crystal collection and let your own intuition guide you.
