Do crystals really hold energy?

AZA: Crystals are basically expressions of chemical energy, rather than having energy. One can say they ARE energy. Crystal healing posits that they can take on people’s emotional energy as they heal, and that they weaken and need cleansing to restore them to original energy levels (see cleansing instructions at end of article).

According to experts, crystals act as a power hold for healing as they allow positive, fruitful energy to flow into the body and do away with the negative, toxic energy. Like other forms of alternative therapy, crystals work by channelizing your energy levels, thereby, focus on healing your body from the inside.

You could be wondering “Is it possible for crystals to absorb energy?”

This proved that some crystals not only absorb energy, they can transfer it too. That means the quartz you’re rubbing in your hand is actually interacting with your personal energy. Each crystal is said to have its own vibrational energy. That means depending on which one you’re holding, it’s reacting uniquely with your own vibrational energy.

Do crystals really have magical powers?

To be sure, some types of crystals do have some interesting properties, such as the ability to generate minute amounts of electricity in response to mechanical vibrations, but again these properties are well understood, and oddly enough have no correlation at all to the imagined “ magical abilities” that were earlier assigned to them.

Do crystals actually posses healing powers?

Healing crystals, usually rose quartz or another mineral, may work for some people. But the benefit is in the user’s mind: not the rock.

To be clear, healing crystals are not medicine. They will not actually improve a medical diagnosis. But if you believe in them, they might improve your mood. “I believe crystals work with the core mental, emotional, or spiritual discord that is causing illness in the body and not the physical illness itself,” explains Deborah Hanekamp, owner of Medicine Readings, a spiritual reading and healing service available in New York City and via Skype worldwide.
