Healing through Crystals

by Dr Arun K Tomson, Director of AyurMa, Wellness Coach and Naturopathic Physician

Ayruma Dr Arun Thomson - Crystal Healing

Crystals are not just earthly treasures; they are ancient whispers of energy, holding the power to harmonize our spirits and mend the delicate dance between mind, body and soul. They work by interacting with our energy field, helping to balance and clear blockages. Each crystal has unique properties that can be used to promote emotional and physical well-being.  

How are crystals formed?

The formation of crystals typically involves Nucleation: A few atoms, ions, or molecules come together to form a tiny, stable cluster called a nucleus. Crystal growth: Once the nucleus forms, additional atoms or molecules are added, causing the crystals to grow. Solidification: As more particles join the crystals, they solidify into a three-dimensional structure with a repeating internal pattern.

Specific crystals and gemstones possess distinct energies and characteristics that can beneficially influence our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being:

  • Energy alignment: Each type of crystal has a vibrational frequency that can harmonize a specific energy centre in the body.

  • Healing properties: Different crystals have different healing properties. These properties are often

  • Emotional and mental well-being: Certain crystals can alleviate stress, anxiety and negative emotions, promoting positivity and abundance.

  • Spiritual connection: Crystals can enhance our ability to connect with higher states of consciousness or divine energies.

Maintenance of crystals

Maintaining the condition of your crystals involves a combination of regular care, clear intention and knowledge of each crystal's specific needs.

  • Specific properties and care: Not all crystals have the same characteristics and some require special attention and maintenance.

  • Cleansing methods: Choose the appropriate cleansing method for the type of crystal, e.g water cleansing, salt cleansing or smudging.

  • Charging and intention setting: Re-energize crystals by exposing them to sunlight or moonlight or placing them on a selenite charging plate. While holding the crystals, set positive intentions to activate their energy. 

  • Storage: Store your crystals in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

This holistic approach harnesses the unique energies of crystals to positively impact physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Given the limited scientific validation for crystal healing, it's best to consider it a

complementary practice to conventional medical care.
