Using Crystals For Healing
The length of time to obtain the effects desired will depend on the quality of the crystal (size, colour, energy charge), location of wear, duration, and the crystal’s appropriateness to your healing. Some crystals are better suited to the overall underlying problem than to just treat superficial symptoms.
There are three steps to effective crystal healing. The first step is the cleansing process. In first week or so, the crystal is making tremendous adjustments within your energy field, matching the matrix of your energy fields to a larger outer universal energy field which will be used in your healing. It is important to keep the crystal on you all the time for at least the first 21 days for this cleansing process to be initiated and completed. This is also a period of time where the blockages of energy that are causing the imbalance are removed. Sometimes a healing crisis occurs at this point, during the early days of wearing the crystal. Remember, resolving the inner conflict may take time and that crystals accelerate the change process. Allow these processes to occur without interruption, by continuously wearing the stone or crystal until you complete the next two steps. It is a good idea to cleanse your crystal weekly and to recharge it in the sunlight for at least 4 hours weekly through out the healing process.
The second step in crystal healing is the process of harmonizing and integrating the changes into your whole being. You may notice physical and emotional changes in either of the first or second steps as your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies come into alignment. Some of these changes are caused by throwing off toxins and negative energies from the cleansing process which continues throughout the cycle of healing. In the second stage, beginning in about the 4th week of wearing the stone or crystal, you may notice that your face looks more relaxed as the harmonizing connection is made within yourself. Your mental outlook, thoughts, feelings and even opinions may change significantly. All aspects of your energy will be activated and the result is a very positive feeling. However, you are not out of the woods yet!
The third step can take 3-4 months, perhaps even longer for some people depending on the intensity of the original condition. With continuous wearing of the stones or crystals, you will achieve stability for the changes. There is no turning back at this point. You can test out the stability by removing your crystals from time to time. If you feel desperate and need to put your crystals back on after only a few minutes, you are not even close to stabilizing the energy changes. If you are able to go for a few days without your stones, but then notice you are slipping back into your old ways, consider wearing your stones for another week or two or only at bedtime before testing again. As you develop deeper sensitivity for crystal energy, you may decide to keep the crystals on much longer.
