Exploring the Healing Power of Crystals for Trapped Trauma

Updated: Jul 10


Our daily lives are full of stress and anxiety, and the need for healing is at an all-time high. One method, often overlooked for the stigma our modern world has created around them, is an ancient and common practice in the holistic world. Crystals have amazing capabilities to help us heal the trauma of daily life, to bring peace to our minds, bodies, and souls. We all have hidden traumas, some of which we do not even realize! Some we would rather not confront. But all these emotions play a role in how we deal with our current lives.

There are many ways these amazing crystals can interact with your life:

  • alleviate stress

  • forgiveness

  • emotional healing

  • facilitate a sense of inner peace

Energy work and crystal work particularly are based on internal feelings and connections to the elements. If you are looking to see physical evidence of crystal healing, you may not find what you are looking for. Only when you quiet the mind and connect to your crystal can activate and provide support to the user. Thoughts have frequencies and crystals, based on their atomic structure are designed to amplify, receive, and give energy. To simplify this,

When you connect to your crystal while meditating, you are tuning in to its frequency and making it possible to feel subtle sensations and energy flow in the body. 

Crystals are not merely decorative objects; They are conduits of energy, each with its own vibrational frequency and healing properties. This is why they are widely used in the day-to-day technology that surrounds us. Check out our recent blog that went into more detail about this!

Crystal healers suggest that by aligning with the energies of specific crystals, individuals can address various aspects of their health and well-being. Every crystal is unique with different properties and energy. It is important to recognize that they each carry information and frequency from the moment they start forming as well as hold onto the frequency of different elements they come in contact with.

These stunning geological formations, revered for their beauty and believed to possess unique energetic properties, have captivated human interest for centuries. Today, as interest in alternative healing modalities continues to rise, the allure of crystals persists as individuals explore their potential for physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

One of the fundamental principles behind crystal healing is the concept of energy flow within the body. According to ancient Eastern philosophies, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, imbalances or blockages in the body's energy pathways, known as meridians or nadis, can lead to illness or discomfort. Essentially, any illness we experience has energetic roots. Since our body is pure energy at an atomic and subatomic level, crystals interact with this energy. The interaction between our energy and the crystals helps to clear blockages, restore balance, and promote healing. It is important to recognize that because crystals amplify energy and frequencies, one needs to connect through: thoughts, through the frequency of the heart, and even speaking to the crystals to activate them and ask for their assistance to reach homeostasis and balance. If you are not using them in this fashion they simply will not activate and connect to your energy.

Energy flows where the focus goes and if your focus is on the crystal it will be activated and respond with frequency.

Here are a few ways many people have found ways to impart the healing properties of the crystals to the user in their daily lives.

  1. Incorporate them into meditation practices, holding or placing crystals on specific parts of the body to facilitate energetic alignment and relaxation.

  2. Wear crystals as jewelry or carry them in pockets or purses to benefit from their energies throughout the day.

  3. Drinking crystal-infused water, created by placing crystals in a vessel of water and allowing their energy to infuse the liquid, is another popular method believed to impart the healing properties of the crystals to the drinker.

  4. You can also sleep with your crystal in your hand or place it near the area of the body where you are feeling discomfort and allow its healing properties to go to work for you.  

As with any form of holistic healing, it's essential to approach crystal healing with an open mind and a willingness to explore. Whether used as tools for self-reflection, meditation aids, or sources of comfort and inspiration, crystals offer a pathway to deeper understanding, balance, and harmony in an increasingly complex world.

To believe or not believe, it's up to you!

Critics of crystal healing often attribute its effects to a mere placebo effect, suggesting that any perceived benefits are purely psychological. While science has not fully caught on to these healing properties, countless individuals attest to the profound impact crystals have had on their daily lives. 

Ultimately, whether one believes in the metaphysical properties of crystals or not, there is no denying their beauty and the sense of wonder they evoke. In a world that often feels chaotic and disconnected, the simple act of connecting with the natural world and embracing its gifts can be profoundly healing in itself.

Regardless of all the skeptics, if your mind is capable of making you sick, why not allow it to help you heal by connecting to these beautiful and mystical gems?! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain! So explore it with an open mind and see what crystals can do for you.
