The Magic Pill…or Crystal?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing 24 Comments

One question I often get is:

“How can I use crystals to help heal this, that, or the other ailment?”

At first…I used just give the one-off crystal recommendation.HBGraphic4

And then I realized…well, no, I knew…I knew all along that I wasn’t giving the entire picture. That I wasn’t giving the whole story & it was really doing people a huge disservice. My crystal recommendations were usually given in a short YouTube comment or Facebook post & that’s all that a post really allowed for most of the time; and people on smartphones or whatever don’t really want to read anything longer than that anyway so I just recommended this or that stone. Plus, people came right out & said it; they really just wanted a 1 crystal answer. Yeah. If I got too complicated in my suggestions, they often told me this!

Everybody’s looking for the magic pill…or the magic crystal in this instance!

Well, Chick Pea: I no longer do that.

For a while now,  I’ve prefaced my “crystal-cure” answers by stating that crystal healing is part of a sound holistic healing program. In other words, the crystals are not to be relied on all on their own for any sort of cure.

“Holistic” means that it takes into account all the different aspects that come into play with healing; physically as well as emotionally…and I’m talking about everything. This includes not just your body, but mind & spirit as well.

Crystals are great b/c they allow us to tap into similar vibrational frequencies (or healing frequencies) more efficiently. Not to say that it can’t be done without the crystals. Of course, it can. You can do everything & anything! It’s all possible. 

But crystals, as I always say, are here to assist us as a healing tool & support; allowing us to do the required work using less energy.

That’s the physics definition of a tool, you know!

Yep. You I used to teach this in my physics lessons all the time…definition of a tool: anything that allows you to do work using less energy.

Who wouldn’t want that? Of course, we’re always looking for the easy way out, right? A crystal can be that healing tool & support. Having said that though…I don’t think I’ve ever used them 100% all by themselves for healing a physical ailment. I’ve always used them as an accompaniment with other healing modalities.

For instance, if I feel like I might be getting a cold, I won’t just use a crystal to deflect that cold. I’m going to pool together all my known resources into my arsenal. Yeah, everything!

  • I’m going to use a crystal healing meditation.
  • I’m going to use gem elixirs.
  • I’m going to have a crystal healing session & have all my chakras cleansed & balanced.
  • I’m going to use herbs.
  • I’m going to rest.
  • I’m going to take the right vitamins & supplements that I know that can boost my immune system.
  • I’m going to reduce my stress levels.
  • I’m going to be extra careful to eat properly.

I’m going to do all those things that I know will help me to heal.

When people say that they don’t believe crystals can heal– first of all, your mindset is a big part of that sound holistic healing practice. Reducing your stress levels is also another big part of that sound holistic healing practice. Both of those things play a huge role in healing, by bathing each of your individual cells & energetic vibrational frequencies in the correct healing environment. And, yes, that has been scientifically proven for those of you that want scientific proof…check out Dr. Bruce Lipton’s work with epigenetics:

Through my research & work, I’ve discovered that crystals assist to further enhance & provide that “correct healing environment” required for healing.

So, yes, as part of a sound holistic healing practice, crystals can be a huge help!

“In a world of specialization, we have been trained to think of medicine as a separate world—when we are sick, we go to doctors and follow their advice. This is starting to change, with the increasing popularity of alternative and holistic approaches to overall health and well-being.” —Gareth Cook, Boston Globe, 9 June 2002

Not to say that using a crystal all by itself without these other surrounding healing modalities cannot work. It certainly can; and has many, many times. But I’m always playing the role of Ms. Practical. I tend towards doing things the most efficient way I know of; and for me, I found it to be most efficient to pull in all the things that I know are in alignment with the same goal in mind.

Why wouldn’t I pull in everything that I know if it’s relatively easy to do? If I know that 1 thing, or 1 modality, isn’t going to cancel out or harm the efficacy of another modality…if I know that they’re all going to work in concert together to achieve the same result, then let’s go for it! Right? Balls to the wall, Lima Bean.

Yes, taking or doing all these things individually may work wonders; but when you pull them all together, you create a 3rd resonant frequency. And this is, again…the physics teacher in me peeking through again…that 3rd Resonant Frequency (known as the Principle of Interference; google that if you feel like geeking out!) is greater than the sum of its parts & thus, produces a more profound healing effect! OH YES! Now we’re cooking with Hydrogen gas, Baby!

Isn’t that the epitome of efficiency?  Because it’s going to be so much more powerful & quicker in healing whatever it is you’re trying to heal or adjust.

And if you use all this alternative medicine in conjunction with Western medicine…well, look the frik out! Yes, I do feel that Western medicine can be a very important part of healing depending on the specific situation. It can provide all sorts of answers & solutions that we’re not able to do as easily (or at all) with alternative or Eastern medicine healing practices. I feel all the healing practices (modern, ancient & in between) are here to be used together & to compliment each other whenever appropriate.

I also know that adding crystal healing to the mix simply can’t hurt. Crystals – remember – are made by Mother Earth & God or Source Energy (please don’t leave me comments on the semantics of that).

Crystals are here to assist us; to be used as healing tools & supports.

Cheers & Good Sparkly Health~!

  3. Love that you are “talkin’ holisitc”. So important to view the big picture and work with all support that is available. I’m stealin’ that line “That’s the physics definition of a tool, you know!” I always love your blend of the “woo-woo” and hard science! LOL. Sharing.

  6. This was very good I too believe we create our own reality it is my hope that other people all over the world will come to this way of thinking and open up to healing themselves so they can open up to thier ultimate ascension

  7. Such a great article, and I absolutely share your outlook that in *any* treatment we need to incorporate body, soul and mind…we are one person. To treat things as being in their own entities and not belonging to the one person who is being affected just doesn’t make sense. And has been proven in study after study, around the world, to not be as effective as treating things holistically.

    I also love that you’ve mentioned Dr Lipton. I’ve been following his work for a few years now, and it is so important to not dismiss it out of hand. I’ve had many academically and scientifically friends do so, without even reading or looking into his work and studies. It always galls me how they can dismiss it, and actually potentially be dismissing their own opportunities for healing in the process. So, I am so glad you’ve included him in this, too, and love the work you do. Well done and many thanks for sharing such important knowledge and gifts with the world!

  8. I’m on the sparkly bandwagon! The way you break it all down is fantastic. I’ve always loved the quote: “If you can’t explain something simply, you don’t understand it well enough” And this is why I appreciate your videos and posts, because they’re full of passion, information, and clarity!

  9. Hello, thank you. I really enjoyed reading this. I enjoy all your blogs but this one especially. I agree with the whole approach kind of thing, it makes sense. I work with essential oils and I think if we can give someone advice on a health issue, then the more things or modalities that we can suggest, the better. Thank you also for explaining about Bruce Lipton’s book. (not in this post) I have attempted twice to read it but have given up. Now I know that I need to get to chapter 5, I will give it another go. I am signed up for the CCH course and am loving it. Thank you:)

  10. This was extremely timely and helpful. I am preparing a presentation on Healing, Stones and Herbs for my college’s Pagan Student Association meeting tomorrow. We are a small eclectic bunch of people, pagan and non, and bring in people from the community as well. Every semester I am asked to present this or a similar topic for a meeting and it gets bigger every time. This year people were particularly interested in crystals since most of them don’t work with them very much and would like too, especially now that we have a good source of them locally. But I always seem to struggle with how to explain how it all works and goes together. This puts things in a great perspective that I can easily translate into my presentation.

    Light and Love

  11. Fabulous article! This is why I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your classes and information. You always give us the whole picture…the whys and hows and the science behind it. Helps us soooooo much when we deal with skeptics <3 THANK YOU!!!

  12. Ahh…LOVE this post! So spot on. And I love the commitment you makee in it…Thank you!

    I’m with you…healing, transformation, change, and growth all require our full on commitment and that is so much deeper than working with a stone or two. Crystals are an amazing tool and bring about the true healing we’re looking for when combined with other amazing tools and techniques.

  13. Love this explanation…so much info…just your style, can hear you voice as I read it! Keep it coming!! Thank you , our original Crystal Hottie!!! xoxo Soni

  14. This is all new to me. I’m fascinated by it and wonder where you get crystals? I live in the middle of nowhere. How does one figure out if they are true stones/crystals or just imitation? I know you should “feel” them but how do you do that if you order online? Maybe I have missed something but I don’t know where to find them. I went to a gem show in Indianapolis a month or so ago (excellent) but unfortunately that was before I started reading up on their magical powers. Any help would be appreciated. Warmest regards.

    1. Purchasing online means finding somewhere you trust will have good stones. Our go-to store is Earthegy: Chrisy, the owner, has also created a coupon code for our readers too: HM10 saves you 10%
