CRYSTAL MINERALS AND THE BODY – PART 2

We Are Crystals At The Centre of Our Being!

We ponder the many ways that crystals come into being and gain metaphysical insights that enhance our therapeutic intuition.

The purpose of this series is to help the student of crystal therapy to appreciate the correspondences that exist between crystals, the human body, and the atomic elements called minerals. Therapy is a three-way process that takes place between the crystals and the client, with the therapist acting as an energetic bridge. The therapist furthermore must be attuned to their highest and most loving spiritual component.

According to *Michael Geinger, crystal therapy can be applied as a three-in-one process:

Igneous crystals are considered to be good for primary healing, for example drawing out pain.

Sedimentary crystals are considered to be useful when people are undergoing times of growth.

Metamorphic crystals are considered to be useful for people who are undergoing times of deep inner change.

The types igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic may also be termed respectively – Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary.

As we saw in earlier posts, there are seven crystal classes, plus an ‘amorphous’ class for crystalline substances, such as granite. Crystals are classified according to the geometry that governs the point growth pattern and ‘grain’ of each individual crystal.

So, let’s get started, first we will revisit the crystal classes with this handsome diagram:

Next we’ll examine this legend, which is intended to make the subsequent diagrams easy to read.

And now the first five lists of crystals that contain the mineral in the title, along with their type and class. Note that many crystals have mixed origins.

The classes are colour coded for easy reference, with each symbol coloured in as appropriate.

Boron is a Trace Element in the human body.

I sincerely hope you find these lists useful, and that they help you to choose your crystals well. Namaste from Amras.

*Michael Geinger is the author of several excellent books for crystal therapists. I recommend “Crystal Power, Crystal Healing: The Complete Handbook”, available in paperback from Amazon.

CRYSTAL MINERALS AND THE BODY


I sincerely hope that you enjoy this coming series for crystal therapists. It has taken seven years to get this far, and I consider it my magnum opus on the subject. If those of you who are brighter than me find any little mistakes, then please, please forgive me – I promise to do better next time. Actually, I’ve checked and rechecked my info so many times I’m practically beyond caring right now. Tonight’s post, “CRYSTAL MINERALS AND THE BODY” is the first of a six parter, where we identify the crystal minerals and explain how their energetic signatures may be used with intent to influence their counterparts in the human body.

Minerals have three functions in the body:

Electrolytes.

Builders.

Reactors.

Electrolytes are the conductors of electrical impulses. They maintain heart rate, nerves, muscle impulses, and acid balance.

Builders make bones and teeth.

Reactors regulate cell-life.

The electrolytes are Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium.

The Builders are Silicon, Carbon, fluorine and Nitrogen.

The Reactors are Iron, Copper, Manganese, Phosphorus, Sulphur,  Zinc, Hydrogen, Iodine, Chlorine and Chromium.

It is not necessary for the crystal therapist to possess the physicians knowledge, but it is essential to have an appreciation for some of the subtle correspondences that exist between crystals and our bodies.

The following list contains symptoms of both mineral excesses and deficiencies. It is neither comprehensive or authoritative, and in no possible way should be used against a physicians directions. Its purpose is simply to give a general sense of how symptoms may correspond with mineral imbalances in the body. It is intended for insight only.

Calcium:     Traits of excess can be hearing and eyesight problems, slow reactions, hardening of the tendons and ligaments.

Deficiency can present cramps, tingling sensations, brittle bones, palpitations, numbness insomnia and eczema.

Magnesium:   Excess can create diarrhea, nausea, appetite and weight loss, weakness and breathing difficulties..

Deficiency brings cramps, back pain, headaches, neck pain, chest tightness..

Potassium:   Excess symptoms may include tiredness, weakness, confusion, heart attack .

Deficiency can bring fatigue, vomiting, bowel distention, weakness, low BP heart problems.

Sodium:       Excess symptoms may include unquenchable thirst, fevers, fluid elimination problems, spasms, confusion and seizures.

Deficiency may result in weakness and fatigue.

Carbon :       Excess can cause restlessness, and tissue starvation.

Deficiency can cause a wasted appearance.

Nitrogen:       Excess causes a dreamy and sensitive person, a night owl, poor immunity, easily bruised and slow to heal.

Deficiency symptoms may include rashes, diarrhea, fatigue, poor immunity, localised swelling.

Silicon:        Excess may be involved in CFS and fibromyalgia.

Deficiency symptoms can include aging skin, hair loss, brittle nails, and osteoporosis.

Fluorine:       Excess can bring abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, tremors and heart problems; and it seriously affects psychic vision through pineal coating.

Deficiency can cause tooth decay and brittle bones.

Chromium:   Excess symptoms include asthma, allergies, other mineral deficiencies, diarrhea, ulcers, and kidney damage.

Deficiency causes high cholesterol, fatigue, diabetes, hardening of arteries, and low blood sugar.

Chlorine:         Excess symptoms may include breathing difficulty, increase of acid levels in blood, skin, heart, and elimination difficulties.

Deficiency can cause water retention, diarrhea, and vomiting.

Hydrogen:      Excess causes greying hair.

Deficiency creates raised BP, chronic digestive difficulties, and overheating.

Iodine:         Excess may cause abdominal pain, metallic taste in mouth, and vomiting.

Deficiency can cause thyroid disease.

Iron and Copper: Excess may cause depression, headaches, nausea, kidney problems.

Deficiency can bring anemia, osteoporosis, and arthritis.

Manganese:     Excess can cause headaches, tremors, and hallucinations.

Deficiency may bring infertility, bone problems, and weakness.

Phosphorus:    Excess may be caused by kidney malfunction and may lead to calcification of the heart muscle.

Deficiency can cause loss of appetite, stiff joints, over sensitivity to noise, fatigue.

Sulphur:   Excess can cause digestive disturbances, and suppress potassium and calcium absorption.

Deficiency (very rare) may bring skin problems, poor circulation arthritis.

Zinc:     Excess is believed to create anaemia through engendering copper deficiency, also headaches and digestive difficulties.

Deficiency may lead to male infertility, fatigue, tinnitus, and poor growth.

ELEMENTS FOUND IN THE HUMAN BODY

https://amras888.wordpress.com/2012/02/10/elements-found-in-the-human-body/

For the following five posts in this series we have compiled a list of crystals, their systems, and their mineral contents.  We have set them out in a way that is both easy and fun to use.  All minerals found in the body are represented with the exception of trace mineral cadmium. We sincerely hope you will find these lists useful.

Seven Crystals Metaphysical: Part 7

At last, here is the final part of our occasional series for intuitional folk who wish to utilize crystal healing energies:

 

KYANITE

 

Kyanite, (usually blue), is a cooling, calming stone.

Kyanite is sometimes called “Archangel Michael‘s Sword of Truth” due to its colour and bladed formation.

Kyanite is often used for cord cutting, it helps us recognise those cords to which we unconsciously cling.

This offers us a space in which to choose freedom from our emotional bonds.

Kyanite can be worn on our persons if we intend to intercept our  ‘scripts’; this removes the veils of confusion concerning our life’s purpose in the present.

Kyanite is also good for divining the truth behind spoken words.

When placed on the throat chakra, kyanite can be used to align us with our causal centre, here we may learn how our inner thoughts affect our outer world.

Kyanite aids in healing throat infections.

Kyanite has been seen to envelop the body in a protective blue light.

It is relaxing for mind and body during meditation.

Kyanite works with changes taking place in the deeper levels of body, mind and spirit.

Hold a piece of kyanite during meditation to help the mind and body connect with high spiritual planes.

Sensitives say kyanite  automatically realigns the chakras without the requirement of conscious effort.

Kyanite is sometimes intended for use as a weight loss tool, helping to nudge the appetite towards an appreciation of the correct foods for the body.

Therapists say that kyanite does not hold negativity, therefore it never needs cleansing.

Seven Crystals Metaphysical: Part 6

Nearly done, this is the penultimate choice in our list of crystals described for intuitional users:

SELENITE

Selenite has a mineral/water balance that is similar to that of the human body.

It follows that the vibrational energies of Selenite can connect very well with our own.

Selenite is used to hydrate skin and reduce the signs of aging.

As the body is mostly made of water, selenite is said (through its unique and stable resonance) to initiate purification by helping send fresh oxygen to  where the body needs it the most.

This effect is especially good when applied as a gem elixir.

Selenite cannot be placed directly in water as it will start to dissolve, but its’ energy can be transmitted into water, or a gem elixir, by focused intent and resonance.

Selenite can be used to help absorb pollution from car exhausts, factory smoke, and all fuel based pollutants which are harmful to our environment and lungs.

Selenite is called “Sword of Light” as it shines through the darkest of energies, revealing to the skilled practitioner anything negatively charged that may lodge in the aura.

Entities can hook into the aura, but selenite is used to help wipe away the effects of these attachments.  In so doing, it reveals where the entities were hooked and heals the part of the aura that was being drained of energy.

Selenite is therefore a good cleanser for the chakras and auric field.

It is believed to be a helpful crystal for persons undergoing realigning of their spinal and skeletal deformities.

It can pull energy through the chakras using movements of the spine.

When used as a lamp, or with candles,  selenite tends to mitigate any dehydrating influence in the atmosphere.

Awareness of the light body can be activated by meditation on an illuminated specimen.

Selenite can be used in meditation to align the physical and spiritual bodily realms. Can be placed on the brow chakra for this, it is probably best to meditate this way lying down.

It is said that Selenite draws in fine spiritual light that illuminates ones’ potential for divine connection.

Provides flexibility both physically and psychologically, and also helps repair cell/DNA damage.

It is believed by some users that Selenite can help to mitigate epilepsy.
