Crystal Therapy Explained

Mystic Pearl Massage & Holistic Therapies makes available some very unique services that focus on moving stagnant energies in and around our bodies to restore balance and improve health.  It is all about cleansing, re-activating, and re-balancing energy so that the physical body will have an easier time to heal when using massage, physical therapy and other conventional techniques.  One of these services is Crystal Therapy.

Ancient Knowledge Still Used Today  

Based on knowledge and documented history passed down through generations of healers and mystics over many millennia,  the properties and benefits from specific stones harvested from the earth are natural healers.  Through ancient scripts, we have learned that stones, or crystals each have unique properties that specifically resonate with certain body parts and systems, certain intentions and prayers. This what is meant when they say "we are all connected". 

Sometimes we choose a crystal because its colour calls to us to touch it or pick it up. Other times, the texture whether it be a smooth tumble stone or sphere, or a matrix with part of the rock it was attached to still intact, is preferred.  Our intuition is at play here when we instinctively and without thought react to a certain object.  This is something to consider as your body's energy is saying, "this is for you". 

Energy - Vibrations - Frequencies?  

Every tissue, organ and cell in our body vibrate at a  certain frequency.  When there is illness or pain, most often an energy healer can determine that its source is from years of emotional stress, negative thinking, hopelessness, and so much more.  Years of conventional methods may not have yielded results and you ask yourself "why".  The energy in the body part that aches most is considered to be worn down by the energetic imbalance.  So, this balance can be restored by matching a crystal's frequency to the body part that requires the healing.

Going Deep to Get to the Source!  

Once we understand that crystals vibrate at a certain frequency as well, we can then create a "match".  Although you may not feel their vibration - as this is what is called 'subtle energy', their effects can be felt at the cellular level in our bodies and in our environment (as is experienced in Space Energy Cleansing).  When you choose a crystal, know that it has also chosen you. There are no coincidences, only like-energy reacting to like-energy.

Measuring the Vibration  

In a healing session, the practitioner who is well versed in energy therapies can easily pick up on the status of your personal energy. It will include the state of your aura and the 'energy wheels' or chakras that spread from over our head to past our feet. Typically, during a session, only the 7 major chakras are worked on.  The chakras each have a colour and resonate to the crystals that match their frequency.  The crystals then serves as a "tuner" to re-establish the proper frequency if it is out of balance.  A side note:  Crystals like clear quartz are considered master crystals and work on all chakras, and all issues by simply placing on it the required intention.

Is Crystal Therapy for you?  

Are you considered someone who is very sensitive to the energies created by clutter, negative thinking, arguments, stress, anxiety, the job, the boss, the friend, the co-worker and so on? 

Do you feel agitated and experience a headache coming on soon after an argument or stressful commute home from work?

Does it take less than a minute for you to react to something you find disturbing?

Do you find it difficult to get back to a neutral state after an argument or stressful situation? 

Do you wish you could be less affected about what goes on around you and just go with the flow?  

Do you have pain in your shoulder, hip, ankle, knee, back that despite all your efforts to heal, the pain returns?

Listen to Your Body  

These are indicators that your energy centers, or chakras are not vibrating at the correct frequency or are 'blocked'. It is your body telling you that it needs additional support for other therapies your are using. Energy therapies are intended to complement conventional medicine and therapies, not to replace them.  It is important then, to remove the stagnant and low vibing energy that has been piling up over the years - or perhaps your lifetime, has blocked the flow of 'chi' (life force energy) and has now has manifested into illness or pain. Rebalancing the natural healthy frequencies in our body will help us 
achieve and maintain physical, mental, and emotional wellness.

Given that all things are energy, resonate at different frequencies, and have a threshold that measures when it is out of balance - which manifests as pain or various degrees of discomfort, it is then accurate to say that in order for our body to be healthy physically, our emotions, our thoughts, and our energies must be balanced.

How is the energetic balance achieved? 

The crystal therapist, using the laws of physics that all things contain energy and like attracts like, will determine where the imbalances are by intuition or pendulum dowsing, and place the crystal with specific properties and vibration that matches a healthy cell in that area of the body, and lets the energy in that part of the body recalibrate. They will move along to all the seven chakras from the crown of your head to the base of your spine.  Extra crystals may also be placed around you while you lie on a treatment table fully clothed.  The effects could be immediate or develop over time. This will depend on your degree of openness to receive these healing vibrations.  

The same concept works with Sound Therapy. More on that in the next blog!

When pain just won't stop despite all your efforts, or when emotional issues keep coming back to disturb your peace, consider a CRYSTAL THERAPY session to lessen the hold they have on you and that keep your mind and body tense. 

Let's clear the blocked energy in your body so that all systems can flow in wellness . Take advantage of the promotion that lasts until May 31st, 2022.

Space Energy Cleansing and Why It's Important

Mystic Pearl Massage and Holistic Therapies

The spring Equinox arrives on March 20th, as it does every year in the Northern Hemisphere.  The distinct change in energies is unmistakeable. We are moving from an internal quieter state - typical of the winter season, to an external and more dynamic state - distinctive of spring.

In the Northern Hemisphere we are experiencing earlier sunrises, later sunsets, softer winds, and sprouting plants - in some cases right up through the snow.  Like the season shakes up the earth beneath us to clean things up and sprout new life, we can do the same to clear all the clutter  and stagnant energy that surrounds us.  Spring encourages us to remove and release stagnant energies trapped over the long winter months in our bodies and in our homes.   This post will focus on cleansing the physical space in which we live or work.  Stay tuned for the post on Cleansing our Energetic Body.

What is Space Cleansing

Most people relate "cleansing a space" with spring cleaning with buckets and mops to clear the cobwebs in your garage, wash windows and de-clutter closets.  In this article, we are referring to the process of ritualistically cleansing the "energetic space" where we live or work. In this context, energy will be considered as a vibration or waves of energy.  The physical world is not inanimate, it is in fact, a pulsating soup of energy frequencies which can accumulate, become stagnant and trapped in areas of our living or working spaces and ultimately affecting our own energy and mood.

The History of Space Cleansing

The ritual of space cleansing has been used for millennia across every culture and religious group in the context of worship, initiations, celebrations, healings, and other special gatherings. The tools, the symbols and the materials used during cleansing rituals will differ between cultures and religions, but the intent to clear, clean or cultivate a sacred space is the same.

One of the earliest records of using ceremonial space cleansing rituals can be traced to ancient Egyptians.  Learn more about the history of the ancient art of smoke ceremonies.

Reasons Why You Need Space Cleansing in Your Home

An energy cleansing of your home can be helpful when:

  • You are having difficulty in some area of your life, and you need clarity or the releasing of things that are blocking you
  • You have had unsettling incidents occur in your living space
  • You are moving into a new home, or your home is not selling on the real estate market
  • There is a change of season, and you want to re-invigorate your living space.  For example, releasing the heavy energies of winter and inviting the lighter spring energies into your home
  • You are going through a transition like starting a new job, or ending a relationship
  • You are beginning a new life cycle such as entering motherhood, fatherhood, retirement, menopause, empty nest syndrome, etc.
  • You are beginning a new project like starting a new business venture
  • A family member has been very ill or died in your home
  • You regularly purchase used items at thrift shops or collect antiques
  • You have a healing practice or other business and receive clients in your home-based office or clinic.

Three Simple Space Cleansing Steps

Space cleansing can be very simple or elaborate. The best way to begin a new habit is to keep it simple. Here are 3 simple steps that you can follow to get started today.

Mystic Pearl Massage and Holistic Therapies

Step 1. Clarity

Set a clear intention.  Take a moment to reflect and figure out what you truly need to release.  Brainstorm on a piece of paper, journal or share with a friend. Use the list above as a guideline.  Once you have created your list, choose your objective. For example: you have reached a stalemate in your divorce proceedings and feel that "cutting energetic cords" with your ex-spouse will expedite the end. Rewrite your objective with a positive spin and in the present moment as though it has already happened: "I am grateful now that my divorce from _________ is finalized and that our issues (you can write what they are) have been resolved for the greater good of all".  Since the publication of "The Secret" in  2006, the world has learned more about the power of affirmations and positivity helping us manifest our dreams and desires.  It works on the basis of physics - like attracts like.

Step 2. Prepare a sacred space

Prepare your body and your space to set your intentions into motion. Take a shower or a bth with Epsom Salt and imagine the water cleansing your body of any unwanted energy and watch it go down the drain. Wear clean, comfortable light coloured clothing Give your space a good sweep or vacuum, and tidying up. It's the perfect time to declutter.  Prepare a 'sacred altar'. It can be as simple as clearing and cleaning a table and lighting a candle at the center of it. If you have sacred objects like talisman or crystals, wash them and place them near the candle.

Step 3: Set & Manifest your intention

First, create calmness within, Sit quietly in front of your "altar" with your written intentions in hand. Ground yourself by ensuring your feet are flat on the floor. Take 5-10 deep belly breaths to calm your nervous system.  Focus your attention on the flickering candle, for about 2 minutes.  This will help to clear your mind. You should feel relaxed, calm and grounded.  If you are still distracted, repeat this procedure.

Second, cleanse your space by using imagery. When you have achieved a calm breathing pace, imagine walking through every room in your house or office. and cleaning every corner, every wall, every ceiling and floor. Once you have swept through the entire space using this imagery exercise, stand up from your 'altar' and open wide a few exit points such as windows and doors and invite the heavy energies to leave. You can recite a little prayer such as: "Bless and cleanse this home (office).  Drive away all harm and fear. Only good can enter here" Close the exits.

Third, with your clear intention written in hand, sit at your 'altar', take 5 to 10 deep belly breaths, ground your feet, and focus your attention on the flickering candle for about 2 minutes. You should feel calm, relaxed and grounded.  Then, recite your intention out loud or quietly.  Recite as many times as you feel it necessary - trust your intuition.  Burn the piece of paper with your intentions and then blow out the candle. Your ceremony is now closed. 

Expect your intentions, desires, dreams and wishes as you expressed them to manifest in the very near future. 

There are several ways to cleanse and bless a space including singing bowls, rattles, incense burning and chanting. Additionally, rituals performed on the new moon to invite new energy in and on a full moon to release stagnant or heavy energy are equally powerful.
