I would like to give a gift of crystals to my friend in the hope that it will help her pain. She has been through breast and bone cancer and most recently had a portion of her colon removed. She is in a lot of physical pain and her health is fragile. What stones would best help her be in less pain and promote healing? Thank you in advance for your help.
Thank you for reaching out to us with your crystal question. I'm so sorry to learn of your friend's health issues! First, let me share the disclaimer that I am not a medical professional and can neither diagnose illnesses nor prescribe treatments. I can only suggest crystals to support her healing process.
Not knowing what your budget is, I'm going to suggest three that in combination, would provide a well-rounded energy support for her various needs. I'll put them in order of importance, in case you are only looking to give one or two. First, Selenite helps clear residual negative energy left from treatments and the root energy-contributors to cancer (blockages). As she gets stronger, she can hold it on the site of pain to draw out and remove that energy, but while she is still fragile, having it nearby is better. Selenite is protective, draws in very pure light energy and encourages cellular-level healing. Next, Red Jasper. Jaspers in general assist in recovery from severe and prolonged illness and support overall health. Red Jasper, in particular supports the healing and strengthening of the lower Chakras, which are the energy centers for the organs in the lower torso, such as the colon. Working with these chakras benefits the immune system, and I'm sure hers is weak after all this fighting. Thirdly, Black Tourmaline is a very protective and grounding crystal that draws off negative energy of all kinds. It will help keep her in an energetically "safe" place to heal. It also benefits the lower chakras, but with a different vibration than Red Jasper.
One more important thing to help her do as these crystals will be doing the energy equivalent of "heavy lifting"--they will need clearing and re-charging often--even the Selenite will need a break. Things like Incense would not be good for her in her condition, but the sound clearing video on the bottom of our home page would be an easy method, or if she has some sort of music playing device, putting the crystals on or near the speakers and playing classical music at a moderate volume would also work. Classical music has a very wide range of frequencies that serve to "Scramble" and thus clear the vibrations built up in the crystals, and lets them re-charge with a variety of vibrations as well.
I hope this information has been helpful to you. And of course, if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us again!
