Hello Tara. My mother suffers from back pains and has had a few surgeries. I read your article "What Crystals Would You Recommend For Spine Problems?" I just wanted to understand when you said "When I have lower back pain I will place a Carnelian on my back and right below my belly button and I always feel some relief". Do you place a Carnelian on the back and the below belly button the same time?
Thanks for your question about crystals that can help with back pain. I'm sorry to hear that your Mom suffers from this pain. I need to give you our standard medical disclaimer that crystals are for healing and should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. Crystals are not a medical treatment and should not be used as a replacement for medical care. Please consult your (or your Mom's) healthcare specialist for your particular needs.
I do often use 2 Carneliansand place one below by belly button and the other on my lower back - right at the base of my spine. I usually lie on my stomach when I do this but you can lie on your back as well...the crystals just stay in place better when I'm on my stomach. I have found that that whenever there is back pain it typically means that there is a blockage in one of the lower chakras like the Root or the Sacral Chakra. By using two crystals I keep the energy flowing between them - with me in the middle- to clear both Chakras. I like the Carnelianfor both Chakras but it can also be very effective using 2 different crystals like Ruby, Garnet,Aragonite, Jasper(a Red and a Yellow) and Clear Quartz. Using the Clear Quartz with any of the others will amplify their energy and can really boost the clearing process. I would suggest that you try different crystals and see how they make your Mom feel. My pain usually gets better as I clear and open the chakras to accept the positive energy of the crystals. I hope it has a similar result for your Mom.
