When I first dipped my toe into the pool of alternative medicine in 2014, I stumbled upon a lot of different things. Many of them way too crazy for my Scandinavian brain to even accept the existence of.
One of these were crystals.
It was just way out of my comfort zone to think that shiny rocks could be anything more than pleasing to the eye. So I left them alone where I thought they belonged – with the sage, chanting and crazy tarot cards.
Fast forward 4 years and I’m doing my dad a huge favour saging his apartment for shitty energy (while he’s laughing), chanting away in my room, friend crushing on my go-to tarot reader, and just received my first three crystals in the mail.
It is safe to say my mindset and understanding of the universe has changed a whole lot over the course of 4 years.
I now understand that the whole universe is made up of energy – just in different forms. I am energy, you are energy, music is energy, the chair you’re sitting on is energy and even the glittery rocks in my hand is energy.
Our whole body, including bones, flesh, skin and blood are just energy that shows up in different patterns and densities. The same with our emotions and thoughts – they are energy in their unique density. Our flesh and blood, and the furniture we’re sitting on, are a kind of energy that we can see and touch. While our thoughts and emotions, and the music we’re listening to, are a kind of energy that can’t be seen by the human eye. That being said; all energy is connected.
Not only are things energy, they also radiate energy. Have you met a new person and gotten a bad feeling? That’s because this person is radiating a type of energy that doesn’t sit well with your own energy. Maybe you’ve also walked into a house and suddenly felt this calming sensation? That’s probably the house radiating energy that sits very well with you.
When we understand that concept, we understand that crystals are alive like everything else in the universe. They are energy and radiate energy that interacts with any other energy field near it.
When it comes to using crystals for healing, it’s based on the theory that when all energy in our body is balanced, we experience health.
The way crystals are made, in the earths crust over million of years, makes them objects with the most energy – and they’re also known to be the most stable form of matter in the universe. It works with our own energy, being able to defuse, absorb, move or shift energy within the body. It works on emotional, mental and physical stress. When we come in contact with a crystal, its energy interacts with the vibration of the cells in our bodies.
Working with crystals makes our body find its natural rhythm.
I got my first three crystals in the mail just recently, all clear quarts, so I don’t have a lot of experience with crystals myself yet. But I’m so attracted to them and I’m sure this isn’t going to be the last time you see me talking about them.
I bought mine at Marits Krytaller (for Norway only I think)
