Healing stones, more commonly known as crystals, have been used for centuries by many different peoples around the world for healing. There is a major increase of interest and use of healing gemstones and crystals in today’s world of health and healing. But how do they work? And where do they come from?
Crystals are naturally formed in the earth through pressure, heat, and time. Some take thousands of years to be created. Others, if the pressure, heat, and environment are just right, can be formed in an instant. Crystals have a geometric pattern that is repeated over and over throughout its make up and determines what shapes crystals are formed in. These geometric patterns influence the healing energy that stones give off as well.
Crystals heal in a different way than herbs, essential oils, or supplements. They do not give your body certain vitamins, minerals, or chemical constituents. They give energy. Albert Einstein said, “Everything is energy and that is all there is to it.” Match the frequency of the reality that you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” Each crystal or healing gemstone gives off a specific vibration and frequency. This energy has a positive influence on health. When the physical body is sick (physically, mentally, or emotionally), the frequency level is low. Crystals have high vibration and frequencies and will help increase the overall frequency of the body. Crystals also have specific vibrations and frequencies that affect specific parts of our beings. For example, lepidolite is a stone that contains natural lithium. It is known to influence the nervous system and is a popular stone used for anxiety and mental disorders.

Let’s think about this concept in terms of music for a minute. Imagine you have a guitar, but one of the strings is out of tune. When you pluck the string, it vibrates, giving off a sound or a frequency, but it is not in tune. It doesn’t sound right. In order to bring the string back into harmony with the other strings, you need something such as a tuning fork that can give off the right frequency or “tune” so that the out-of-tune string can be brought back into balance. Once that string is tuned up, beautiful music can then again be played with the guitar.
Crystals act on our body in the same way that the tuning fork acts for the guitar. We often have parts of our being that are “out-of-tune” and we need help getting back to out proper frequency so we can find harmony again and give off beauty, love, and joy into the world. Because the stones are constantly giving off a vibration, all we need to do is have them near us to be able to benefit from their effects.
Common ways to receive the healing benefits from stones, crystals, and gems is to carry them on your person. Whether that is in jewelry form, in your pocket, holding them in your hand, or carrying them around your neck in a small healing satchel, all are perfect! Placing crystals under your pillow can help facilitate a restful nights sleep or even increase your dream state. Larger stones can be placed in a room to be admired for their beauty as well as influence the energy in the entire space. Amethyst is often used this way because it is stunning to look at, but it also creates a feeling of unity, acceptance, and love in the space in which it is placed.
There are thousands of different crystals, and more are being discovered every day. The best way to begin incorporating the healing power of crystals into your life is simply by experiencing them. Go to your nearest crystal or rock shop, or better yet, come see us at Forget Me Not Alternative Healing in Homer, AK, and let your body tell you what crystals it needs. Pick up the crystals and see how they make you feel. Remember, it is all about the frequency and vibration that they are giving off. Your body will be attracted to the ones you need like a magnet.
Nikola Tesla said, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” Crystals are the perfect way for you to begin unlocking the secrets of your own personal universe.
