Scientific Observations on Crystal Therapy
Crystals have some of the highest molecular orderliness found in nature. Light passing through the crystal will resonate with the structured patterns of the crystal. Water can take on a variety of molecular patterns. It is known that when water is able to form well organized and geometrically shaped molecule patterns, it has increased surface tension and bonding properties. This pattern is the pure state of water found in healthy cell tissue, while ungeometric and disorganized water molecules are found in unhealthy cells and cancer cells.
Thus, one explanation for the health giving effects of crystal therapy is that the well-organized vibration resonating from the crystals helps to organize the water molecules in our tissues and cells. Much of our understanding of crystal therapy was developed by Marcel Vogel, who spent his lifetime investigating quartz crystals. He designed experiments demonstrating the power of crystals to affect physical processes. The experiments of Vogel and his associates proved the following:
* A precisely cut quartz crystal produces a constant vibration of the same frequency as water in its purest state.
* Moving water will pick up the vibration from the crystal through resonant interaction and this transferred charge will restructure the water.
* A cut crystal can be charged with intent to structure water. Since we are made up of 90% water this carries strong implications for how our body and health can be affected.
What is a Crystal Bed?
A crystal bed has 7 extremely clear and highly polished Vogel cut quartz crystals suspended approximately 12 inches above the client lying on a massage table. Each of the quartz crystals has been cut to a specific frequency. Each crystal is aligned above one of the seven human energy centers or chakras. Colored lights, chosen to match the chakra colors, radiate light and energy through the crystals to each respective chakra, and shine on and off in certain rhythms to cleanse, balance, and align your energies. The individual receiving the session rests face up with eyes closed, bathing in the energy. The sessions are very healing and integrating.
How does the Crystal Bed work?
As the color is transmitted through the crystal onto the corresponding chakra, the chakra is cleansed, energized, and brought into balance with all of the other chakras. This allows the other aspects of our self, whether it be mental, emotional or physical to be brought into balance. For when the chakras are out of balance, all the other aspects of ourselves will also be out of balance. Then as these subtle energies are brought into balance, the body’s own natural healing mechanisms are able to function as they were designed to do. The Crystal Bed Healing cleanses, balances opens, and recharges the body’s energy creating a deep relaxation. This healing modality is also sometimes referred to as a Crystal Bath.
What will I experience?
People feel all manner of sensations during and after sessions – pressure, weight, lightness, heaviness, hot, cold, wind, all manner of body sensations, tickling, tingling etc. The crystals can evoke feelings of peace and serenity, and typically a very deep relaxation. You may simply fall asleep and wake up feeling very refreshed and renewed. You may experience insights and release of specific personal issues and memories. You may have feelings of warmth, movement, expansion, cleansing, or a feeling of being touched. Some people feel sensations of physical healing taking place, as they feel the presence of the healing spirits working directly on their physical bodies. Your awareness may even extend beyond yourself to higher states of consciousness.
How is a Crystal Bed Healing treatment conducted?
Crystal Bed Healing is safe and non-invasive. The person receiving the Crystal Bed Healing simply removes their shoes, and any watches or electronics, then lies fully clothed, on a massage table below the suspended crystals, so that each of the seven crystal aligns to the their corresponding chakra. Once the person is comfortable an eye pillow is placed over their eyes. The lights in the room are then dimmed, soft music is turned on, and finally the pulsating lights shining through the crystals are turned on. All the individual need to do is to relax, let go, or even fall sleep. The light, the crystals, and the healing spirit beings will do the rest.
What do I do after a Crystal Bed Healing?
No matter what the experience, it is advisable for the individual to rest after a Crystal Bed Healing Session to fully absorb the experience. It is also advisable to drink several glasses of water over the next several hours to help rid the body of any toxins or waste products which tend to be released through the cleansing action of the Crystal Healing. It also can be helpful to write down the experiences and guidance which can occur during the healing session, to help integrate and ground the experience into your life.
What to expect after a Crystal Bed Healing Session?
As with many of Subtle Energy Healing Therapies, the FDA states no claims can be made that any disease states can be cured. However, there are many, many reports of personal healings occurring daily throughout the world with medical validation. Healing can occur on many different levels, spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. The Crystal Bed also can help open the connection with the Healing Spirit Guides.
Many people who have had Crystal Bed Healing Sessions have reported some of the following:
- An increase of definitions in the senses (taste-food, sight-colors, touch-awareness)
- Feeling more energized – clear thoughts – ability to focus
- Felling a deep relaxation – a connection to the earth and/or universe
- Feeling more at peace within themselves – a balance of the chakras
- Feeling less stressed and in increased sense of overall well-being – increase in health
- A deeper spiritual understanding of themselves, and their life situation
- Gaining insights into their future life path and the evolution of Mother Earth
- Gaining insights of the cause of disease states – looking inward into personal health
- Receiving guidance as to how to best deal with their disease or problems
Each and every person who receives a Crystal Bed Healing reports a different effect, each experience being relevant and unique to his/her own condition, needs, and level of awareness. Many people who have experienced the Crystal Bed also feel themselves in an altered state after a session. Many say they feel the sensation of being worked on by Healing Spirits, some float back into past lives, and some a feeling of great attunement to spirit. The experience is totally individual.
