Crystal and Gemstone Therapy on DrStandley.com

Research on crystals & gemstones -

Since we have crystalline structures in our brain, why wouldn't our bodies react to crystals?

I have not found any research that says crystals and gemstones for therapeutic uses is an exact science, although there is some scientific textbook information that speaks of crystalline structures in the brain. For that reason alone, I am a firm believer. Scientists have absolutely no clue as to why these tiny crystalline structures exist in our brains but they are there. These structures are situated in the brain and were discovered through the use of an electron microscope.

Most holistic practitioners who use crystals and gemstones will only use the highest quality stones available. They are passionate about gems and natural stones and are quite sensitive to their raw characteristics. High quality gemstone are stones that have 'not' been dyed, irradiated to intensify the color and they have no chips, cracks or fractures.

So why do some practitioners only use round stones?

You may find some practitioners will only use round stones during your therapy. I have not found any reason for only using round stones as opposed to triangular, square, or pointed stones unless there is a safety issue with sharp edges or that the energy may be considered aggressive like a sharp edge in Feng Shui is considered aggressive. I have read where non-rounded gems and stones may have different effects. In my opinion, if a stone is pure in its natural chemical property then it should do the required job regardless of his shape, texture or contour.

Can I choose my own stone?

You can choose a stone that resonates with your spirit. Discover the stones for yourself and find out what makes you smile, or where you see the beauty. Some people will keep a stone with them for about a week, even while sleeping to see if it enhances any certain area of their life.

All stones should be cleaned after each use to disperse and clear any collected energy. Also, you or the gemstone therapist may choose to muscle test to see if a particular gemstone is right for you.

Ask yourself a few questions -

Pay attention to your moods and emotions, your dreams and interactions with others. Have you had any more insight than usual? Trust your own intuition and pose a question about what you are trying to accomplish before spending the week with a particular stone. Let your conscious be your guide.

The 7 Color Rays -

AMAZONITE: Amazonite on DrStandley.com

This stone is said to improve self-confidence and self-worth.

Amazonite assists in communicating one's true thoughts and feelings without over-emotionalism. It also enables one to see a problem from another's point of view in order to affect peace, or to see both sides of an issue objectively to resolve one's own inner conflicts. Sleeping with an Amazonite can bring these components into focus through the symbolism of dreams. [Simmons, 22][Hall, 50]

As a support stone, Amazonite aids in overcoming loneliness, and has been credited with making married life happier. [Mella, 137][www.gemselect.com]

Amazonite is a Barrier Filter crystal that blocks geopathic stress, absorbs microwaves and cell phone emanations, and protects against electromagnetic pollution. Place it near computers and other electronics, or tape to your cell phone. [Hall, 50]

In the workplace, Amazonite dispels negative energy and aggravation, and protects against unfair business practices and others taking advantage. A stone of prosperity, Amazonite attracts new customers and orders to a business, and assists one in being in the right place at the right time for new opportunities. [Melody, 106][Hall, 50][Eason, 41, 286]

Amazonite is a good luck stone for games of chance, competitions and luck in any financial venture. To make a lucky-charm, combine three Amazonites and a small amount of basil and mint in a small pouch. Leave it in front of a turquoise candle until the candle burns down. [Eason, 44, 286]

Hide an Amazonite in a child's or teen's bedroom to encourage tidiness, and keep a dish of Amazonites on the kitchen table to persuade others to assist more with chores. [Eason, 286]

AMBER: Amber on DrStandley.com

Sometimes life can deal you a crushing blow, making our burdens feel heavy and unbearable. Amber allows happiness to enter and lift those burdens.

Amber is a protective stone for children and may be worn as a necklace, bracelet, sewn into an infant's garment or placed in their environment to ward off negative energies and shield them from harm. It is also prized for energetically reducing teething pain, though it should never be placed in the mouth. It is highly beneficial when treating infants or children for the mother to wear the Amber first. [Megemont, 23][Fernie, 323][Eason, 82][Hall, 52]

Wear or carry Amber when recovering from an illness or injury to increase vitality and draw on one's own essential strength and desire for wellness. Its vibration of life force brings warmth to the inner being and imparts more of this energy into the system. Amber may also be used to achieve longevity, and is a marvelous gem for the elderly. [Simmons, 24]

As a love crystal, golden-orange Amber is a symbol of beauty and tenderness, a good-luck talisman for increasing natural radiance and attracting lasting love. It may be used to call in a twin soul, or for protection against negative outside influences and interference. It is a wonderful gem for assuring promises and has been used in the renewal of marriage vows. [Eason, 43, 82][Lecouteux, 312][Melody, 107]

Believed to “electrify” desire, Amber is credited with helping to cure impotence and frigidity, and to aid female fertility and male potency. [Megemont, 23][Eason, 82]

Amber is an exceptional rubbing stone for discharging negative moods, relieving anxiety, or deflecting energy from others. It warms the more it is touched and generates a positive, uplifting current of energy. Carry in the pocket, wear in jewelry, or use in rosary or prayer beads. [Mella 72][Lembo, 61][Megemont, 22-23]

Use Amber to purify any environment before use, or to remove negative energy by placing pieces of Amber around the space, spray as an elixir, or burn as incense. It also provides an effective screen after the area has been cleansed. For healers who work with removing entities from one's energy field, Amber can be a valuable ally for sealing the aura after extraction and clearing any lingering negative patterns. Amber assists those who are new to exploring their psychic sensitivity by providing a Light barrier against negative forces until they are able to control their intuitive skills. [Melody, 108][Ahsian, 25][101 Hall, 26]

TREE AGATE: Tree Agate on DrStandley.com

This is stone is for contemplation and introspection. A gemstone therapist may suggest this stone to help see things more openly and with more clarity.

Agate is the name given to numerous varieties of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Dendritic Agate, sometimes called Tree Agate, is not banded, and therefore not strictly an Agate in scientific terms but is included in the Agate family. It gets its name from a Greek word meaning tree-like. These Agates are usually colorless, white, or gray, and have tree- or fern-like inclusions of iron or manganese, called dendrites. Less common are green Tree Agates with white dendrites.

Dendritic Agate is ideal for examination of self, and the self-imposed limitations and patterns that make up one's life experiences.

UNAKITE: Unakite on DrStandley.com

This is a balancing stone for the emotions and physical body.

Feng Shui Crystal Tips:

Hung in windows, crystals can bring chi energy from the outside into dark or stagnant areas of your home or office, as well as energizing particular sectors for creating desired positive results. For example, a crystal placed in the south-east, north-west, or center of an environment can aid in stimulating prosperity.

Crystals can also be used to diffuse negative or "sha" chi that results from a sharp corner, beam, or hard edged column. By hanging the crystal near these structures, "knives" or "poison arrows" are dulled and their adverse effects are diminished.

For lasting love, Unakite is traditionally sprinkled with dried yarrow and placed in a sealed bag as a marriage or commitment symbol. It should be replaced on anniversaries and the old crystal and yarrow cast into running water. To help two become three, place Unakite under the pillow to aid in conception. During pregnancy a piece of Unakite on the womb helps parents-to-be make spiritual connection with their unborn baby; it is marvelous for use during labor to ease the transition. [Eason, 280][Hall, 311]

Unakite Jasper is superb for healing and nurturing the physical and emotional bodies during injury, prolonged illness or hospitalization. Its Earth energies bring gradual strength and renewed vitality, while helping one to understand and endure these frustrating or painful experiences. [Melody, 345][Hall, 311][Ahsian, 220][Gienger, 50-53]

Unakite Jasper is a remarkable talisman for cutting down or quitting smoking, and for overcoming other long-standing addictions such as overeating or the over-consumption of alcohol or drugs.

A large specimen or bowl of Unakite tumblestones in the environment brings a calm, gentle energy and negates the effects of electromagnetic pollution from televisions, computers and other technological devices. [Hall, 311]
