"Do you place the crystals on the area of pain, or where you want it to work? Or do you remain consistent with the chakra location?
My husband has polyneuropathy and nerve pain due to his kidneys failing back in 2014. He has been in remission from his condition for the last 3 years or so after a flare up. His last Dr appointment revealed some of his numbers were quite elevated. He does rituxin infusions, and will have to go another round soon to combat this flare up.
I've recently explored crystals and would like to place crystals on the areas affected. I've been finding only info for placing on the chakra points, and hoping this is another "do what you feel is right for you" situation that seems to surround crystals. I'd hate to do something wrong and make things worse, so-to-speak. Thank you in advance for any thoughts or advice. (And no, not using crystals in place of medical treatment, just hoping to ease things, even if it's 20 mins of relaxing time for my husband.)"
Thanks for reaching out to Healing Crystals! I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's neuropathy. I can absolutely help answer your questions, but I must first state our disclaimer (even though you mentioned that you do know they are not meant to replace medical care, I have to state this). We feel that crystals can complement other therapies and support energetic well-being. Crystals should not be used as a replacement for medical treatment. For medical advice, please consult a licensed healthcare specialist. Now, let's get to your question.
You can absolutely place the crystals over the specific areas of pain and not just the chakras. I, myself, do this for my chronic pain problems using Selenite on the exact spots I'm having the pain. Sometimes, for an added layer of healing, I'll place a crystal over the chakra related to the system I'm experiencing pain in. For example, if I'm having kidney pain from kidney stones, I'll place Selenite under my back or on my abdomen where I'm having the most pain, and then I'll add an Orange Calcite over my Sacral Chakra. Other crystals that are good for pain relief are Amber, Amethyst, Fluorite, Lapis Lazuli, Smoky Quartz, and Rose Quartz. Sometimes you have to trial and error to find which one will work best for you. I've personally experienced a wide range of effectiveness from just taking the edge off the pain to dulling it completely while the crystal was in use.
Even when using crystals to work chakras, they don't have to be directly over the chakra, because this isn't always practical. Many people wear their crystals as necklaces or bracelets or toss a few in the pockets and use intention to tell the crystals how they'd like them to work. This can be done simply by holding the crystals in your hands and speaking your intention out loud. For example, let's say you want to use a red jasper to work your root chakra but you can't very well sit on a crystal all day, so you might buy a small tumbled red jasper, ask it to please work with your root chakra for whichever issue is concerning you, and then toss it in your pocket and let it do its job. A lot of the success people have with crystals comes down to intention and then allowing the crystal to do what it thinks is best for you.
I wish you and your husband the best of luck, and please don't hesitate to reach out if we can be of further help!
