WHAT IS HEALING?
Healing helps our body and mind become stronger and balanced. It is important to remember that Healing is not the same as Curing. Healing is the ability to channel and control energy and can help our body to re-balance the subtle energy fields, to promote well-being. A Cure is something that physically cures or restores a disease.
Many Ancient civilisations used crystals and gemstones for healing purposes, and many cultures still do. Crystal Healing has become more and more popular over the last few years, as an interest in Alternative and Holistic Therapies has dramatically increased. Alternative and Holistic Therapies do not replace conventional medicine, but may complement it.
CAN ANYONE BE A HEALER?
You do not necessarily need to possess great psychic skills to be a good healer, but you do need to be genuinely sensitive to the needs of others and genuinely want to try and help people. When doing a Crystal Healing, or any Healing for that matter, you are helping to channel energy to the patient.
Crystal Therapists will develop their own individual healing techniques, and will choose crystals or gemstones that work well for them - it can take some time to find a technique that is right for you. There are many different forms of Healing, and many teach different methods, but you should try and do what feels right for you, whilst bearing in mind the principles of healing.
It is important to remember to "ground" your patient after a healing. What is meant by this is that you ground the energies that have been involved in your healing, otherwise your patient might feel dizzy or disorientated. Ideally, to ensure that energies are grounded, start from the feet working towards the head, and work back down again towards the toes. To find out more about healing techniques, see HEALING METHODS.
It is also important to remember that the crystals and stones you choose for healing should not be used for any other purpose, and should be cleansed regularly. For more information, see SELECTING CRYSTALS.
Here are some important things you should do before commencing a healing session:
Create an appropriate atmosphere in the room: clutter free, nice relaxing colours, comfortable cushions, blankets etc, candles, perhaps incense burning to aid relaxation. You might want to play a relaxation tape to begin with to help the patient relax.
REMEMBER: people can be apprehensive before having a treatment. Re-assure them, explain briefly what you will do during the treatment, show them the crystals or tools you will be using.
Explain to your patient that it is quite normal to experience a cold or hot sensation during the healing, as is it just as normal not to feel anything physical happening. People are all different after all.
You yourself need to be feeling balanced before doing a healing on someone else, do some crystal meditation beforehand to cleanse your mind, and do some crystal visualisation to rid yourself of any negative energy. It is best to avoid healings if you are ill.
