Stories About the Benefits of Crystal Healing My
grandfather was an admiral. He was also a doctor. His father
died shortly after his birth and his mother struggled to bring
him up in the slums of Manchester, England. He got scholarships
all the way to the university and learned to depend on his exceptionally
keen and rational mind. His way of thinking was further endorsed
by an extremely successful, lifelong career. He didn't take kindly
to (what he considered to be) superstition or fanciful suggestion.
he was in his eighties, he developed severe rheumatoid arthritis.
My grandmother, who was in many ways his opposite, recommended
that he get a copper bangle to wear to help his condition. He
ridiculed her belligerently, saying the idea was nothing but
superstitious hogwash. A few weeks later, however, the pain became
so great that he was willing to try anything. He quietly and
furtively went into the garage and beat a copper pipe with a
hammer into a shape that could be worn as a bracelet. He wore
it under his shirt so my grandmother wouldn't see it. A few weeks
later after having taken it off and on several times he became
convinced that the copper bracelet was ameliorating an enormous
amount of his pain.
to form in his military tradition, he proudly announced to the
world (ignoring my grandmother's "I told you so's") that the
copper bangle was a wonderful discovery for some arthritic sufferers.
I was about ten years old when he told me this story at a visit
to their home in the Southern English countryside.
thought, "If a copper bangle can do this for arthritis, what
can other metals do? What can gems do?" I had a deep fascination
for gems at an early age, but this particular incident left an
indelible impression upon me, because I knew the character of
my grandfather. I admired his cynical intelligence and his stoic
need for reason and empirical data. But in my grandmother, I
saw the very contradiction. She was much more feeling orientated
and passionate for things that were unorthodox in English 1960's;
things like psychic pursuits and spiritualism.
then I've met many people who wear copper rings and copper bangles
for arthritis. A large number have experienced major improvements
in their conditions. And of course, I've met a few who haven't
reported any benefit at all. My observation with the copper bangle
is that often people don't wear a copper bangle that is heavy
or pure enough. This is one of the criteria required. I suggest
it has to be at least two full ounces of pure copper (any form
necessary). It should preferably be a flat piece, with maximum
skin contact. It is best worn near the site of the arthritic
condition. And if the person has a larger body, then a heavier
bangle may work better.
wonder what arthritis is, and of course there are many different
types, but I think overall it's a disease that's related to the
electrical polarity of our system. The electrolytic aspect of
whether we have an imbalance of negative ions or positive ions
in our blood, just as in electroplating, will be indicative of
whether we "plate" our bones with added calcium or not. The "scale" in
a kettle and the calcium-lime coating in a water pipe are both
the result of the electrolytic transfer of "like" attracting "like" from
the water to the wall of the container.
the same situation with blood. Man has not yet designed instruments
to prove this theory, but if you are the type of person who has
low energy, health problems, or depression, I would think it's
only normal to suggest that you may have, in the various systems
of your body, an electrical imbalance that needs to be harmonized
and probably strengthened. Gems and noble metals can bring into
balance the inharmonious electrical conditions of the body which
can be felt by the mind and thus assist the processes of recovery.
bangles as lightning rods
the copper rod that protects the house from lightning, we need
to be grounded from the electrical intake we attract from walking
on carpets and electromagnetic environments, especially TVs and
computer monitors. Some people hold in more electrical charge
than others, and they especially need to wear a grounding copper
bangle, or even one made of lead, silver or gold (or combinations
thereof). The metals all conduct electricity, though pure gold,
silver, copper and sometimes even a lead silver alloy appear
to be especially useful for human use. What's important is that
they have sufficient weight. Of course our electrolytic balance
can also be thrown out by a toxic colon, pH imbalance, etc. My
point is: it's the subject of our electromagnetic body that needs
more recognition and research.
1984, I had an enjoyable conversation with the manager of a large,
high-tech ceramic magnet factory in Temecula, California. He
showed me a three-inch thick file containing the Japanese government's
research on the benefits of ceramic magnets on arthritis and
other health-related conditions. He wanted to manufacture ceramic
magnets and market them as a health tool. In exasperation he
told me the FDA had phoned him up and threatened to close him
down if he tried to use the Japanese government's research to
promote his case. Many hold the view that the medical business
becomes political when the profits of the pharmaceutical industry
we look back over the last two centuries at the many different
forms of electromagnetic energy that have been recently discovered
(gamma rays, X-rays, radio waves, microwaves, etc.) it's logical
to presume that we still haven't invented the instruments to
discover many new as yet unknown energy forms. In light of this
I feel one day the beneficial effects of gems will be verifiable
with as-yet undiscovered technology.
a constant ebb and flow of energy required for a harmonic balance
in the mind and body. The human mind can obviously trigger the
body to manifest various conditions, just as certain body conditions
will stimulate the mind to certain mental states. In turn, negative
conditions of the mind and body can be couteracted, eliminated
or obstructed by using the influence of positively charged beneficial
materials touching the body. Samuel Hahnemann, the great father
of homeopathy, with his extraordinary perception and foresight,
was able to state as early as 1842:
dynamic forces of mineral magnetism, electricity, and
galvanism act no less homeopathically and powerfully
on our vital principle than medicines actually called
homeopathic, which overcome diseases when taken by mouth,
rubbed on the skin, or smelled..But we still know far
too little about the right way of using electricity,
galvanism, and the so-called electromagnetic machine
to put them to homeopathic use."
wonder why these diseases exist in this modern age. The self-realized
yogis, whom I consider to be the most advanced thinkers of our
time, say that all disease is created by living against natural
spiritual laws. On a more mundane level, we constantly absorb,
record, and emit all forms of environmental influences in our
evolutionary or devolutionary life style.
can be found to counteract the negative pull on our composite
being and gems are included among these materials. Every material
has a rate of vibration, a "consciousness", if you like. Every
thought that enters into our mind and body influences our energy,
magnetic tendencies, hormones, and chemical reactions, etc. Repetition
of these mental habits, if negative, bind us into ruts that soon
become our consistent way of thinking. In turn, this creates
a magnetic pull towards negative circumstances, which are simply
self-predetermined events that we lacked the ability to predict.
to go to the source and stimulate our minds to be more attuned
to a higher vibration, to a higher level of consciousness. Then
we will feel more at home expressing noble thoughts and actions.
Interestingly, this condition has to emanate from within, but
it can obviously be stimulated by external environment as well.
Beautiful parks, inspiring books, spiritually attractive personalities,
philosophical truths, and religious appreciation all benefit
our consciousness. All these forms of influence have a rate of
vibration, or consciousness that will penetrate and influence
physics is essentially the study of energy waves. We know it's
basically the study of forms of energy that are constantly ebbing
and flowing and acting with predictability. Quantum scientists
will essentially say matter actually isn't there; it's just energy.
And they will prove it with their brilliant theories.
gems are so unique
you could say, aren't really there; they are just condensed energy.
What makes them so unique and extremely interesting is that their
energy wave units are designed in such a way that their atoms
line up unerringly by the trillion. These symmetrical geometric
alignments allow for an evenly regulated and unusually potent
unencumbered energy flow, much more influential than the vast
majority of natural materials. In the inorganic kingdom they
are unique in this way. Their extraordinary homogenous physical
structure allows for an extremely stable and potentized rate
of emanating atomic frequency.
I am talking now in terms of theory, because man has not yet
designed instruments to prove or disprove this conjecture. But
testimonials over the millenniums have supported the theory that
specific gems have the ability to counteract an enormous array
of problems for the people who wear them. They have a rate of
electromagnetic vibration that can greatly lessen and help dissolve
the negative rates of vibration that lower types of thought give
off. The gems cause our rate of vibration to change, which in
turn changes the way we think. It can be a very surprising experience.
It is even more convincing when something seemingly inanimate,
like a set of Ayurvedically recognized high-vibration gems, appears
to the wearer to be the cause of such a phenomenon.
course, so many people who read this will say, "What is he talking
about when he says negative thoughts relate to rates of vibration?" This
kind of bio-feedback logic is totally foreign to what we learned
as children. But as a great author once said, "There is more
in heaven and earth than is dreamed of in your philosophies,
unfortunate that in this so-called "new age" there are so many
words written by different theorists that try to express themselves
in vague terms (Energy field, aura, radiation, channel, vibration,
etc.) These words, in the way they are used, open themselves
up to ridicule from the scientifically minded. This is an understandable
fact. There is too much supposition and fallacy promoted without
testimonial or feedback in the new-age movement of today. I often
cringe when I read some of the books that make such dramatic
and seemingly contradictory claims about crystals or gems. Unfortunately
suppositional fallacy is here to stay, and we'll have to live
with it. But the damage it does in closing down the more empirical
thinkers who investigate this science, is the same type of thing
that happens in religion when fundamentalist believers blindly
push their faith without calm reason predominating.
of mantras, pujas, Bach flower remedies, essential flower oils,
homeopathy, and a host of seemingly subtle vibration mechanisms
have been making dramatic claims for years. Gems are just another
item on the list. However, they endure the investment of time,
unlike the other more transient mediums. A gem investment not
only generally gains in monetary value, but can be used daily
for the rest of your life, and can travel on for generations.
are many scientific laws for a happy and healthy life. Gems have
a way of helping us to strengthen our resistance to past negative
karma returning to us in this life. There are many healing mechanisms
for an infinite variety of problems; gems, however, are not invasive
of any combination of approaches. The wise will select all that
is simple and practical for them to attain their goal. Gems may
not be for everyone. But if you have read this far, it is reasonable
to suspect that you have a deeper than average understanding
of the benefits of these wonderful friends that Mother Nature
has provided for our use.
