Gemstones have been used down the ages to assist in physical healing. Each stone has certain metaphysical qualities and its energies can help relieve pain and provide positive energy when one has been traumatized or experiencing physical pain.
Crystals work by balancing our “chi”, “prana”, or “universal life force”. Physical ailments have an underlying cause, and crystals will subdue this cause. A physical symptom may be the result of different underlying causes so if you do not find a benefit from one crystal, try another, or put different crystals together in a piece of jewelry to magnify the effects.
Of course gemstones do not replace conventional healing or seeing your doctor for body problems you are experiencing. If you have a physical emergency you of course will get urgent care from a doctor. However, stones have been known to assist one physically and mentally in recovering from a past physical trauma and psychosomatic illnesses.
From as far back as the days of the legendary lost city of Atlantis, through the ancient Mayan and Hebrew civilizations, and including Far Eastern and Native American cultures, crystals and gemstones have been used both in spiritual rituals and as aids to physical healing. Today the practice of using stones and crystals continues. Not only with the aboriginal shamans of Australia who use stones to commune with spirits, but with ordinary people across the world who claim extraordinary results.
