Crystal healing is similar to acupuncture, acupressure, Reiki and other forms of energy medicine. Researchers Semyon and Valentina Kirlian found while experimenting with photography of plant’s biofields (or auras) that “before plants became visibly diseased, there were clear signs of imbalance in their auras.” The Kirlian photography also gave “evidence of the existence of acupuncture points, which appeared as volcanic bursts of white light on the skin.” The flow of Reiki has also been photographed with Kirlian photography methods as a channel of white light emanating from the practitioner’s palms. Energy medicine practitioners maintain the flow of energy throughout the body by breaking up blockages in the flow, thereby balancing the energy before an imbalance leads to disease.
In a crystal healing session the biofield of the crystal, through its dominant energy which is a particular vibration, clears and strengthens that vibration in our biofield, thus removing blocks and reestablishing balance.
The crystal healing methods Lauren uses are the following:
Crystal Energization – This simple crystal healing layout has the powerful ability to pull out tension and negativity, then recharges you with positive energy. Joy Gardner mentions that “it’s better than a nap. Perhaps one day it will replace coffee.” Lauren channels Reiki during the session.
Chakra Balancing – Lauren’s guide selects a crystal for each chakra. The crystals are placed on the chakras. Lauren then uses a toning crystal over the body to determine which chakras need charging or cleansing. Lauren channels Reiki during this part of the session as well.
Chakra Charging – If there is deficient energy in a particular chakra, additional stones and crystals are added to the layout to charge the chakra. Lauren shares images she receives and listens to your thoughts and feelings that you may want to share during the session. She may also be guided to tone if you would like her to and to channel Reiki.
Cleansing the chakra – If the energy in the chakra is excessive, then Lauren’s guide selects stones and crystals to release the excess energy. Lauren shares images and guidance she may receive, and again listens to whatever you would like to share. She channels Reiki and may be guided to tone here as well.
Crystal Balancing – This is a powerful technique where Lauren circles the chakras using a long toning crystal starting from the minor chakras in the feet, up to the chakras in the knees, and hips, and the lower 3 chakras( of the root, the sacral, and the solar plexus,) then up to the upper 4 chakras ( of the heart, the throat, the third eye, and the crown.) Moving up the body unwinds negative energy. Lauren’s guide may advise to Charge or Cleanse one or more chakras. Lauren shares images and listens to what you would like to share. From the crown, Lauren circles the chakras proceeding down the body to the feet bringing in positive energy. During the session Lauren also channels Reiki. By the time she reaches the feet, you feel totally balanced and peaceful.
