Crystals For Healing: What You Need to Know

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. 

 Nikola Tesla

Everything on Earth is comprised of energy. All matter is composed of molecules that are in constant motion, including crystals.

Crystals for healing have specific molecular structures that vibrate and emit signature energy fields. These unique vibrations of energy interact with our own energetic vibrations and they can directly affect our physical, mental, and emotional bodies.

You can use crystals for healing everything from migraines to anxiety and beyond. Healing crystals can also accelerate your meditation practice, align your chakras, and induce trance states when under the right conditions. There’s no limit to the types or levels of healing you can get from the right crystal, in the right application.

The Science Behind Crystals For Healing

There is a lot of scientific evidence proving that crystals, in fact, do have powerful qualities. 

While watching crystals grow under a microscope, IBM scientist Marcel Vogel noticed that their shape took the form of whatever he was thinking about! He hypothesized that these vibrations are the result of the constant assembling and disassembling of bonds between molecules. In addition, he also tested quartz crystals and proved that rocks can store thoughts in a similar way to how cassette tapes use magnetic energy to record sound. 

Albert Einstein said everything in life is vibration. Just like sound waves, your thoughts match the vibrations of everything that manifests in your life.

According to Nikola Tesla, “In a crystal, we have clear evidence of the existence of a formative life principle. And though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is nonetheless a living being.” 

This discovery was further explained by Jordan Pearce, also known as The Spirit Science Guy: “Crystals have more of a magnetic energy to them. They don’t breathe, they don’t circulate blood, but they have a “push and pull” sort of vibe to them, in the direction of different frequencies that we can find throughout the body, or in nature. This is why crystals can have an impact on you simply by being in your auric field. They’re pushing the energies or pulling them in a particular direction, depending on the crystal.”

How to Harness a Crystal’s Healing Power

A great way to harness a crystal’s power is by programming it – or, in other words, setting an intention for what you want. Intentions are like magnets- they attract what will make them come true.

Programming your crystal is a simple and powerful tool for achieving happiness and well-being. What happens is crystals pick up on your unique vibrational energy with every thought and intention. They then amplify the positivity that you begin cultivating. Their energy continues to amplify when they are close to you or are present in your environment. 

Cleansing Your Crystal For Healing The first step is to cleanse your crystal. You can choose your preferred method of cleansing and what resonates with you the most:

  1. Immerse your crystal in the smoke of a burning sage stick, Frankincense resin or Copal incense to cleanse it.

2. Place your crystal out under the light of the sun or the full moon for at least four hours.

3. Bury your crystal in the Earth and allow it to become recharged with Earth energy.

4. If it’s a smaller crystal, you can place it on top of a clear quartz crystal or selenite crystal to clear and cleanse any stuck energy.

To continue programming your crystal for healing, hold it in your hands, close your eyes and take three deep breaths. Reflect on your faith, the Earth, and what makes you happy. This will connect you with your highest vibration. 

Your highest vibration may be associated with a religious or spiritual belief, God or simply a divine power that’s greater than you. Or it may be associated with a scientific connection. You decide what to call it. 

Then, while in this space of love and light, ask that your crystal be cleared of all unwanted energy or previous programming.

Aloud or in your head, say:

“I ask that the highest vibration of love and light connect with my highest self to clear all unwanted energy or any previous programming. I command this crystal to hold the intention of __________.” To finish the sentence, add three intentions for your crystal – energies that you wish it to hold for you. End by repeating “thank you” three times. By saying it three times, you emphasize that what you’re asking for already exists in the universe.

3 Ways You Can Use Crystals For Healing

There are essentially three ways you can use crystals for healing to transform your energy and speed up the process:

1. Clearing

Crystals can absorb or pull away from negative energy from your body. 

2. Energizing

Crystals and stones can push positive energy into your body, mind, or spirit by inducing resonant frequencies. A crystal can harness energy from the quantum field and send it into your own energy field through vibrations. 

3. Balancing

Sometimes, your energy may be misaligned or out of balance. Healing crystals can use the properties mentioned above, which are essentially pushing and pulling, to bring back energetic harmony.


In the moments when you’re vibrating at a lower frequency, you can easily forget your goals and aspirations. When you reconnect with the crystal you used to set your intention, it will remind you of your goals and limitless potential.

At every moment, we have the ability to choose our thoughts and as we continue our journey, each day presents us with new challenges and wonderful beginnings. Healing crystals remind us to quiet the chatter of the mind and reconnect to the universally healing vibrations of the Earth.
