Methods of Crystal Healing
How can crystals best be used for physical, emotional and mental healing? Modern methods of crystal healing take advantage of four different methodologies, i. e. four approaches which, in practice, complement and enhance each other.
The Intuitive Method
This detects the healing effects and the practical applications of crystals by following what can best be described as an "inner feeling." Using both intuition and trained powers of observation, very subtle changes can be perceived as soon as a healing crystal is touched on, placed on or worn on the body. If you can sense and then follow the positive, strengthening reactions, when performing these actions, you will be able to detect the correct crystal without any theoretical knowledge.
This deals precisely with such further explorations. By the means of dowsing measurements, where divining rods or pendulums are used and by the means of kinesiological muscle testing ('kinesiology' - the study of the mechanics and anatomy of human muscles), the subjective feelings described above can then be made more objective - which organ, which energy pathway (meridian), or which other physical, emotional or mental function responds to this crystal can be tested quite accurately. In this way, individual reactions to a specific healing crystal can be very quickly verified.
The Analytical Method
Another method whereby not only the effect of specific healing crystals on the individual is investigated, but, basic principles can also be identified, by the comparison of many individual effects in research groups. It has been stated as fact that both the geological formation of a crystal, its molecular structure, the minerals it contains and its colour each contribute independently to its healing effect. With the knowledge obtained from these principles, it is possible to identify the exact healing crystal for a specific human being in a particular state of health or life situation.
The Empirical Method
This is built on experience from the other three methods and focuses on those practical applications that have been confirmed repeatedly in treatment practice. Here, no individual method or theory stands alone in its practical effectiveness. In effect, after an interruption of over two to three hundred years, a valuable tradition is being revived and redeveloped - and the circle of people who are contributing their experience is becoming ever larger.
