The use of crystals has been utilized since the beginning of time.
Healers, Shamans, and members of the Clergy used crystals as a method of healing according to the properties that the crystals carried. Various crystals carry different vibrations and are used accordingly depending on the type of healing that is needed.
I knew innately from many past lifetimes that as a healer I used crystals. When I started my journey in 2012, I started Reiki training and was drawn to crystals instantly. My first crystal was a Lemurian and before I knew it, my collection grew from there. It seemed very natural to me to incorporate crystal therapy in my Reiki practice.
Practitioners are re-discovering this kind of therapy and pairing it with other energy modalities as an effective method of healing.
