How do crystals work?
Crystals effect us based on what is called entrainment.
Definition of Entrainment:
"Technically, entrainment in physics refers to the frequency locking of two oscillating bodies, i.e., bodies that can move in stable periodic or rhythmic cycles. They have different frequencies or movement periods when moving independently, but when interacting they assume a common period."
How this relates to the human : crystal relationship
We are vibrational beings. Every cell in our bodies is vibrating at a certain frequency. The same goes for crystals!
A crystal's frequency depends on its chemical composition.
Depending on that frequency, our bodies (energetic and physical) will attempt to match the frequency of the crystal's thus having an effect on us. These effects vary depending on our particular frequency combined with that of the crystal being used. Effects range from soothing to energizing. Allowing us to zen out or tune in. Block negative energies and promote positivity. There is no limit to how crystals can affect us.
Crystals are used for balancing Chakras, healing on all levels, facilitating trauma recovery, pain relief, and many many other things.
Over the centuries, students of crystals have been able to meditate with the crystals, allowing the crystals to teach us.
