I want to thank you for your informative articles. I am reading all I can about the healing properties of crystals, because it is so new to me. The new ones on the chakras are especially good. Knowing what happens when a chakra is too open or closed has helped me to pick crystals that will help with problems rather than just picking one because it corresponds to that chakra. I wish I didn't have to wait for the info on the other chakras!
I have been working with my son. He is very open to this, basically, because the doctors aren't really sure what's wrong. Do you have to work on all the chakras at one time?
The last time we worked, we worked on two along with a trancendental and grounding crystal. I have tried to match a crystal for those chakras according to his problems and the feelings he is having. Sometimes it makes me feel uncomfortable, because I don't want to hurt him in any way. I am very cautious, we only worked 5 min. with the crystals that time. I am seeing him again this weekend and was thinking about increasing the time to 10 min. He carried black tourmaline and lipidolyte on his person through this last weekend, because I wasn't able to be here to work with him.
One more question. I have read that there are several ways to energize crystals. I usually hold the crystal in my right palm and visualize white light from above and below(palm chakra) is this ok?
Greetings and welcome to our shop! I am sorry to hear that your son is having problems. From your message, I understand that he is seeing doctors and that they are unable to make a diagnosis, but I wish I knew what his symptoms are so I could at least recommend an appropriate crystal that could support him. Could you write back with some background info on your son? Can you tell me his age, symptoms, how long this has been going on, and any other pertinent information you can think of? Is there anything that happened right before his symptoms appeared, that might be associated with the cause? Any vaccinations, accidents, or traumatic events?
In the meantime, I can tell you that when we are born, our energy field is open and the chakras are mostly undeveloped, except for the Crown Chakra, which is wide-open, with no filters, as the soul anchors itself into the new body, but then close a little once this process is completed. As the child grows, the Root Chakra is the first to develop, anchoring the soul into the body. At around the age of seven, filters grow into place over the chakras to make the child less vulnerable to all outside energies that may be coming in to the child's energy field. Any trauma occurring before these filters are in place can effect the way the chakras develop. For example, a child who spent much of babyhood screaming and crying can end up with a malformed Solar-Plexus Chakra, which may then lead to intestinal issues.
When one first begins to work with the chakras, it is generally recommended that one start out with the Root Chakra. This is because the Root Chakra is most closely associated with the physical body and the manifestation of energy in our three-dimensional reality. Another reason for working with the Root Chakra first is that working with only the higher chakras can result in spaciness, flighty behavior, and disconnection from the outside world. It is normally best to work with one chakra at a time at first, and then trying two or more chakras at a time, when you've become familiar with the functions of the individual chakras.
Since I don't know the age of your son, I can't really determine what stage he is in regarding the development of his chakras. However, you might consider one of our Chakra Assortments that have at least one stone for each chakra. That way, you could do a body layout for him, placing a crystal at each chakra. Doing this may help him to adjust and correct his own chakras. To see our various Chakra Assortments, take a look at the following page:
Personally, I like our Healer Special because it is a great value, having several stones for each chakra. The Healer Special is one of the first sets I ever purchased for my own healing work. That chakra set can be seen at this page:
One suggestion I can make is Clear Quartz Crystal. Known as the Master Healer of the mineral kingdom, Clear Quartz can increase the size and strength of the aura merely by holding or wearing it. Placing a Clear Quartz Cluster in his room can send this healing energy out into the environment. Clear Quartz can be used to amplify and focus one's intention, making it an appropriate crystal for grid work and manifestation programs. Clear Quartz is believed to clear and activate the chakras, and purify the subtle energy bodies. Consider getting one of these for yourself as well, to enhance and strengthen your own aura, and to provide support to you during this time. To see our selection of Clear Quartz Crystals and Clusters, take a look at this page:
I cannot guarantee that placing crystals that are specific to each chakra on your son's body will remedy his problems, though. In fact, I would recommend that you look into other types of energy healing such as Reiki. Do a little research on the web to see what is out there regarding Reiki. There are some groups on the internet where you can get attuned to Reiki for free, allowing you to provide some help to your son. However, bringing him to a Reiki Master at least once will give him a helpful boost to his own healing abilities, and will help you to learn how to apply the energy yourself.
Regarding your question about energizing or charging your crystals; Holding the crystal in your right palm and visualizing white light from above and below the palm chakra is a good way to charge your crystals. It is not necessary to use Reiki or other alternative healing techniques when working with your crystals, but if you have these skills, then they can be very complimentary to your work with crystals.
Of course, I must tell you that I am not a doctor and thus we cannot make any medical claims or guarantees. Our traditional disclaimer is as follows: The suggested uses and metaphysical descriptions of the inventory items are our personal opinions and should be used at your discretion. These suggestions are not intended to be used as medical advice. If you resonate and like our suggestions and descriptions, please use them freely. However, if you don’t resonate or agree with any of them, please consider them for entertainment purposes only. We have done our best to represent the crystals and minerals accurately, and have chosen only high quality items that we would use ourselves. Please use your own intuition about what “feels” right for you.
That being said, there is so much more in this universe that cannot be seen by the human eye, such as radio waves, molecules, and gases, to name a few, but we know that these things do exist. It is with that in mind that I can honestly say that energy healing such as crystals and Reiki, do exist and have their effects, regardless of whether they are acknowledged by what is known as the scientific community. However, please keep in mind that some events that occur in one's lifetime may be related to the soul's contract put into place before birth, meaning that sometimes, there is nothing you can do about an illness because it just has to be worked out by the soul who is experiencing the illness.
I hope the above provides you with some assistance in your own process of caring for your son. If you could send me the information about your son, I might be able to give you some more suggestions related to his age and symptoms. I wish you much luck on your and your son's healing journey.
Peace and Blessings,
