Crystal stone healing is a form of alternative medicine that uses the vibrational energy of crystals to promote health and well-being. Crystals, river rocks, polished stones, and faceted gems are thought to help with healing when placed in strategic locations on or around the body. Crystal healers not only treat the physical body, but also the LEF (Luminous Energy Field) or Auric Body surrounding the physical form. These practitioners believe that as crystals interact with people and their surroundings, they have the ability to absorb negative energy, cleanse auric field imbalances, focus intention, and direct energy flow.
We frequently hear crystals referred to as “new age,” although crystal healing is a traditional, time-tested type of therapy. Crystal healing has been woven into the fabric of several of our most illustrious civilizations. Crystals have been used in healing practices by ancient cultures all around the world, including the Mayas, Incas, and Egyptians. In more recent history, crystals have also been utilized by Aboriginal Australians, Native Americans, and Celtic Druids.

What Is Healed During Crystal Rock Therapy?
When I refer to “healing,” I’m talking about establishing equilibrium in the mind, body, spirit, and physical space. Everything begins on an energetic basis and then is expressed mentally, physically, or emotionally with the understanding that everything starts on an energetic level and eventually manifests outwardly. Dis-ease or negative energy can be displayed physically through illnesses and behavioral problems, which are the last signs of imbalances stemming from emotional ancestry, environmental issues, karmic debt, mental difficulties, physiological blockages, psychological trauma, or spiritual unrest.
But keep in mind that it’s meant to be an adjunct to other health treatments and not a substitute for them. Always consult with a medical expert about what your own path should be and how you may integrate Eastern and Western medicine for optimum results.
Who Can Benefit from Crystal Rock Healing?
Crystal rock healing can be used by anyone, regardless of age or health condition. It’s a natural method that uses the subtle energy of stones and crystals to help re-establish balance in the mind, body, and spirit. It can be used to address physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual issues.
How Does Crystal Rock Healing Work?
Crystal rock healing works on the principle that everything is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. When our bodies are out of alignment with our true selves, we are more susceptible to dis-ease. By using stones and crystals that have specific vibrations, we can help re-align ourselves energetically so that we can heal physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

How To Choose The Right Crystal or Stone
You don’t need to be a shaman or Reiki practitioner to find the perfect crystals, or “Power Stones,” for your needs. If you feel drawn to a certain stone, it is likely the right one for you. And if you enter a store and are immediately compelled by one crystal in particular, go with your gut feeling—it probably calls out to you for a reason. You might find your Power Stones through a variety of people or places, such as hike trails or online searches. Additionally, the way you use your Power Stone may change over time as well.
Each type of crystal has its own individual vibration and purpose. However, there are certain stones that are essential for anyone interested in healing work. These stones are commonly referred to as master healing stones. If you’re a beginner, these are the ideal stones to start your crystal collection with.

How To Begin Crystal Rock Healing
It’s critical to cleanse and energetically recharge your crystals on a regular basis. It’s like washing your face every day to get rid of dirt and impurities. Crystals can be cleansed with the five elements: aether, air, earth, fire, and water. By cleansing your crystals, you are allowing them to reset and rebalance so they can function at their optimum frequency. Here are a few ways you can cleanse your crystals:
- Sunlight: Sunlight is a great way to cleanse and recharge your crystals. Place your crystal in direct sunlight for at least an hour. The sun will help to cleanse the crystal of any negativity and recharge it with positive energy.
- Moonlight: Moonlight is another great way to cleanse your crystals. Place your crystal in direct moonlight for at least an hour. The moon will help to cleanse the crystal of any negativity and recharge it with positive energy.
- Rice: Place your crystal in a container (preferably a glass) of brown rice, cover completely, and leave overnight. The rice will absorb unwanted bad vibes from the stones. Make sure to dispose of the rice after this method.
- Burying: You can also bury your crystal in the ground overnight. This will help to cleanse the crystal of any negativity and recharge it with positive energy from the Earth.
- Smudging: You can also smudge your crystals with sage or Palo Santo. This will help to cleanse the crystal of any negativity and recharge it with positive energy.
Once you have cleansed your crystals, you will need to energetically recharge them. This can be done by placing them in direct sunlight or moonlight for at least an hour.
Before you begin it’s important to assess your mental and emotional state. This will help you to understand what type of crystal you need and how to use it effectively. It’s also important to be in a quiet, comfortable space where you won’t be interrupted. Ask yourself some simple questions:
- What mental, emotional, spiritual, or physical issues would you like to address right now?
- What type of energy do you need more of in your life? (For example, love, peace, creativity, etc.)
- How much do you want to work on this issue? (For example, are you looking for a quick fix or long-term healing?)
- What type of crystal do you feel drawn to?
Once you have a clear intention for your session, you can begin. Here are a few tips:
- Relax and clear your mind. Take a few deep breaths and allow your body to relax.
- Hold the crystal in your hands or place it on the area of your body that needs healing. For example, if you’re looking to improve your self-esteem, you could hold a piece of rose quartz in your hands.
- Visualize the energy of the crystal entering your body and filling you with light. Imagine the issue you want to work on being healed.
- Take some time to feel the energy of the crystal and how it makes you feel.
- When you’re finished, thank the crystal for its help and place it back in its safe place.
Crystal Rock Chakra Healing
According to ancient Indian texts that date back 4000 years, we have an intricate energy system called chakras. Chakras are whirling vortexes of energy located throughout our bodies at specific points. We rely on chakras to take in and expend energy; therefore, it’s essential that they’re working properly if we want to feel physically and emotionally healthy, as well as function optimally in life.
You have seven chakras that go from the bottom of your spine up to your head; each one connects with an associated color and energy focus. The vortexes along the front enable you to share energy out into the world, while those down your back help you receive support and input from your spiritual guides–a direct connection to God/the universe.

Crystals are useful, easy-to-use tools that may be used to enhance your chakra healing regimen. Crystal chakra healing may take many forms. You could experience electric tingles or a profound sense of calm, spontaneously break out in tears or laughter, or feel nothing at all. The response you’re experiencing is always the “correct” one; trust the process, trust your intuition, and believe in crystals’ intelligence.
Simple Single-Chakra Cleanse
- Take a crystal and roll it between your hands several times to activate it.
- To use, find the area of your body that matches the color of the stone and place it there. For example, a blue stone would go on your throat and a green stone on your chest.
- Imagine the crystal’s beautiful color saturating the region it is in contact with, spreading and growing more brilliantly with each breath you take.
- Repeat the mantra for each chakra as you breathe in and out.
- Set an alarm (5 minutes is a good all-purpose amount of time), or simply keep going until your intuition tells you to stop.
- Always remember to express gratitude to your crystal when you are done using it; this appreciation lets the crystal know that it is done being charged and unplugs it from your chakra.
Crystals can fill your life with healing, hope, and love. There are many systems of working with stones and crystals, probably as many systems as there are people working with them. The method described here is just one example; please feel free to experiment and find what works best for you!
