Did you know that crystals can help to ease physical pain? I'm a Certified Crystal Healer and I do not believe in using Crystal Healing to replace conventional medicine, but I do believe that it helps fill in the gaps. It can even bring conventional medicine a step further which is why we're starting to see holistic practices meshed with traditional in some of our most reputable medical centers. Sometimes medications just aren't doing the trick to completely alleviate symptoms of pain and that's when I turn to crystals. Read on for information about stones to alleviate headaches, back pain, muscle spasms & cramps, arthritis, migraines, and nerve pain.
Amethyst - to treat headaches and bring in a sense of calmness. Lie down and relax. Try placing an Amethyst on your Third Eye Chakra which is just above and in between the eyebrows. You may also place it above the Crown Chakra which is on the top of your head, right in the center. Just place it on the surface that you are lying on over the head. See yourself inhaling in the beautiful violet Amethyst energy which brings calming healing energy. On the exhale visualize yourself releasing all tension and pain.
Rainbow Fluorite - to treat back pain. Lie on your stomach and relax. Try placing one Rainbow Fluorite in the middle of your back, right in the center of the pain. Rainbow Fluorite is great for the bones and teeth. It's also anti-inflamatory which covers any recent injuries. Additionally this crystal will aid in relieving pain. If you find that this treatment works well and you are someone who suffers from chronic back issues then I recommend your buying three additional stones so they can be placed in a square shape on your back. The square should generally encompass the area of pain. In Sacred Geometry the square represents the earth, strength, and vitality. Have someone place the stones on your back for you and lie with them until you intuitively feel it is time to stop the treatment.
Smoky Quartz - to treat muscle spasms and cramping. This crystal is great for calming muscles, whether it be spasms due to injury or cramping from menstruation. You could lie down and for a DIY traditional crystal treatment or take this little gem on the go. If you do have the time to relax then lay back and place the Smoky Quartz at your Root Chakra which is around the pubic bone. Allow the Smoky Quartz energy to sooth those spasms away. Taking it on the go, then place it in your pocket. Just beware that there aren't coins and such to bang into it and scratch it up. Be mindful that you are carrying medicine in your pocket throughout the day. Feel the grounding effects of the Smoky Quartz.
Apatite - to treat arthritic pain. Apatite is healing to the bones while it encourages new cells to form. It also aids in calcium absorption, a plus for those suffering from arthritis. This stones is healing to bones, cartilage, and motor skills. Apatite can be worn in a piece of jewelry, carried in the pocket as a tumbled stone, or used in a DIY healing treatment. If going the healing treatment route then lie down and place the stone at the Crown Chakra (over the top of the head).
Fulgerite - to treat migraines and nerve pain. Fulgerite is made when lightning strikes sand and it re-crystalizes changing it's vibration. I have found it to be extremely effective in treating both migraines and nerve pain. It's sort of like it goes in and resets the nervous system. To work with Fulgerite place it at either your 3rd eye or Crown Chakra. See which one you are intuitively drawn to place it on. Visualize the Universal Healing Light entering through your Crown Chakra as you inhale. It brings healing throughout the mind, body, and spirit. As you exhale feel any tension or anything that doesn't serve you going out with that breath.
