Renowned for their beauty, healing properties, and ability to store information, the versatility of crystals is widespread
and well known. From exquisite ornaments placed around the home and office to aid in purifying the room’s energy,
to being used in crystallography as an aid to natural healing, to being utilised by the technology industry for LCD
monitors and watch movement mechanics; crystals can be considered one of nature’s many amazing miracles.
Of the many hundreds of types of crystals, there is one crystal that is held above all others for its superior abilities and properties. Those immersed in the study of crystals comment that the Himalayan Crystal is somewhat the ‘master’ of all crystals. For those who utilise crystals in the art of crystal healing, the Himalayan Crystal is considered the ultimate crystal for use in their practices.
From where do Himalayan Crystals originate?
As their name suggests, Himalayan Crystals are found in the Himalayan Mountain Ranges. Some of the most precious Himalayan Crystals are found in Nepal, an area that is known to be the source of many natural, medicinal offerings, such as plants, herbs and crystals. The Himalayan Ranges are considered sacred due to being closest to the celestial bodies, and the crystals are found 3,000 metres above sea level. As global warming takes hold, the ice caps of these mountains have been slowly melting, allowing the discovery of these pristine crystals.
Why are these crystals so special?
It has been found that crystals naturally absorb energy from nature. Himalayan Crystals have been exposed to more than 200 million years of natural energy, buried deep within the Himalayan Ranges. This means they have enhanced natural energy over other crystals. Each crystal is hand mined from the Earth’s embrace and carefully carried on a dangerous seven-day trek down the mountain; they are cherished crystals. According to literature by crystal experts, the Himalayan Crystal amplifies energy and possesses a high-energy vibration. For these reasons, crystal lovers regard the Himalayan Crystal as the most versatile ‘well-being’ crystal in the mineral kingdom.
What is crystal healing?
While some consider crystal healing to be ‘new age’, the question begs to be asked: “How can something that has been known and used almost since the dawn of time be considered ‘new age’?” Centuries before technology and industrialisation, human beings relied on the abundance of the Earth to provide them with everything they needed – food, shelter, medicine and water. Crystals, in particular, were used to increase and harmonise energy levels, which in turn helped to equip and strengthen the body. Over the centuries, humans have synthesised the healing process to the point where the natural remedies that worked for centuries are now viewed as somewhat inferior to chemical-based and technology-based medicines and antibiotics. While an increase in disease and illnesses in response to a modern world has created a necessity for modern medicine and techniques, it is still important to remember the healing power of the Earth. This is the underlying principle of crystal healing and other natural remedies, which should be used in conjunction with, but not as an alternative to, modern medicine.
