Crystals for Arthritis

Black Tourmaline
Arthritis is a disease of imbalanced body chemistry. Whatever the immediate factor that heralds the onset of arthritis, the body is not eliminating uric acid efficiently. Some people's bodies get rid of toxins more efficiently than others. Stress and anxiety reduce our ability to deal with toxic wastes, incorrect diet gives the body more toxins to deal with and environmental pollution adds to the total burden the body has to cope with. Once a toxic accumulation has built up, it will eventually manifest itself as dis-ease.

Tourmaline is a protective stone that is said to shield against ill-wishing and negative energies. In addition it is believed to protect against electromagnetic smog and radiation from mobile phones.

Tourmaline can be used as a natural insecticide. When buried in the ground or earth around a plant it is believed to deter pests and encourage healthy growth.

Tourmaline is said to encourage a positive attitude to life, whatever the circumstances, dispelling negative thoughts and encouraging clear rational thought processes.

In healing Tourmaline is said to strengthen the immune system and to reduce the pain of arthritis and muscle strain. Keeping a piece of tourmaline near a painful knotted muscle is believed to help relieve the pain.

Crystals For Reducing Electromagnetic Stress

Symptoms of disturbance of the nervous system may include:

  • headaches
  • digestive problems
  • sleep disorders
  • circulatory problems, high or low blood pressure
  • heart rhythm disturbances
Often the initial symptoms of electromagnetic stress are relatively non specific disturbances in the wellbeing of a person.  This is why it is difficult to recognise.  A person might feel stressed, tired or exhausted, have headaches or ciculatory problems or be ill often.  The person may feel nervous and irritables.  Electromagnetic pollution affects the body by placing it under continual stress.

Electromagnetic pollution is present anywhere an electrical current is flowing.  this means that there is electromagnetic pollution for a certain distance surrounding:

  • electrical apparatus or appliances
  • cables or leads of electrical appliances
  • electric cables in walls and in sockets
  • railway and tram lines
The radiation emitted from an electromagnetic field may extend for several hundres metres.  Such sources include:

  • radio and television transmitters
  • mobile phone transmission masts
  • cordless telephones
  • access points for wireless computer networks and internet connections (wi-fi), in libraries, in public places, companies, hotels
  • Wi-fi cards in laptop computers
  • Wi-fi routers in the home
  • mobile phones
Crystals cannot shield us from electromagnetic pollution nor make it disappear, as they do not work in a physical way, but they are able to support both our physical and our energetic bodies in dealing with the effects of electromagnetic pollution.

Rose Quartz is often used for countering interference.  It is often recommended to place an unworked Rose Quartz crystal beside or under the bed or on the electrical apparatus in question in order to earth the radiation.  Rose Quartz can create a certain balance for disturbances that otherwise cannot be removed.  It can therefore make the interfering radiation more bearable for us for a certain time, by having a harmonisin effect mentally and spiritually.  This means that depending on the source of the radiation, the crystal can become exhausted and needs regular cleansing and recharging, as it may only work for a few days.

Rose Quartz Tumbledstones

Aventurine is a quartz that obtains its green, glittering appearance through inclusions of fuchsite.  Aventurine has prove effective for the prevention and healing of radiation damage.  It imparts resistance to radiation stress and wuickly alleviates unpleasant side effects such as headaches and other pain, skin irritations.

Chakras and What Are They For

The base chakra is our connection with the physical world. It is associated with stability, security and our survival. Also known as the earth or root chakra, it provides us with the solid ground upon which we can build our lives. It enables us to perceive the earth as a safe, secure place that satisfies all of our needs. If the base chakra is not functioning correctly, you may have the sensation that you are floating, as though you are not connected to the earth. Physical problems relating to the imbalance is spine, bones, teeth, nails, ankles and knees may be experienced. Crystal: Hematite, Black Obsidian, Snowflake Obsidian, Red Jasper

The sacral chakra:
is concerned with sexuality, reproduction, pleasure and desire. Its element, water, continually produces new life, and so it is through the sacral chakra that we also create new life. The water element purifies, too, and dissolves away blockages, enabling our feelings to flow freely. If the sacral chakra is disharmonious, there will be problems with the sexual organs and in forming relationships. This chakra is connected to the water element and problems may arise with the kidneys and bladder. Crystals: Carnelian, orange calcite
The solar plexus chakra: is our sun, our centre of power. If this chakra is balanced, we feel full of joy and energy, yet also at peace and in harmony with ourselves. It is from this chakra that we transform our desires and emotions into action. The solar plexus chakra is also concerned with transforming our food into energy and with separating the useful from the not so useful. If this chakra is imbalanced there will be an inner restlessness and lack of contentment. This agitation and inability to relax is often coupld with a lack of self esteem and self confidence. The physical problems that may be manifested by a disharmonious solar plexus chakra include digestive problems such as diabetes and ulcers, and eating disorders like anorexia, allergies and chronic fatigue. Crystals: Citrine, yellow jasper, tigers eye

The heart chakra: is the centre of the chakra system, a bridge that connects the three lower, physical and emotional centres to the three higher, mental and spiritual centres. The fourth chakra is connected with unconditional love, compassion and empathy. If the heart chakra is open, then the higher abilities of the brow, or third eye chakra will develop at the same time (many spiritual schools, in both the East and the West, therefore, focus on opening the heart chakra. Malfunction of this chakra can lead to sadness, depression and a fear of rejection. There may also be an inability to give and receive love. The physical problems that may be manifested include blood pressure, heart and circulatory problems, as well as disorders of the lungs. Crystals: Green Aventurine, Rose Quartz
The throat chakra: is connected with communication and self expression and concerned with speaking ones truth and the true expression of the soul without fearing what others think. From this centre, we listen to our inner voice. Through it we express the contents of all of the other chakras to the world. An imbalance psychologically can indlude an inability to express one's emotions. The physical problems arising from an imbalance include all ear, nose and throat disorders, as well as any disorders of the voice, such as stuttering. Physical problems with the neck, shoulders and jaw, as well as thyroid disorders may also arise. Crystals: Blue lace agate, sodalite, lapis lazulite.
The brow chakra
: is associated with intuition and inner vision and wisdom. It enables us to perceive the world in a new way and to become aware of other dimensions of reality. If this chakra is out of balance, it can lead to a lack of intuition and a total disbelief in anything that cannot be proven scientifically. If the third eye as the brow chakra is also know, is open and the base chakra in particular is not grounding you properly, you may become very confused, hallucinate and lose touch with reality. The problems that can result from an imbalance include visual disorders, nightmares and headaches. Crystals: Amethyst, violet quartz, sugalite

The crown chakra: is concerned with understanding bliss and enlightenment. It is our link with the divine, enabling us to become as one with our creator. Disturbances in the crown chakra can cause an unwillingness to and fear of opening up one's spiritual potential. Alienation and confusion may be present. Physical problems arising from an imbalance include epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Crystals: Clear quartz, Snow or White quartz, white howlite

The Power of Crystals

Crystals are incredibly versatile.  They can be used in a wide range of ways to improve your life physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  The mystical ways of using crystals are usually dismissed by modern science as mere superstition, and yet science recognizes the inique, and often very strange, properties of minerals and crystals, making use of their characteristics in everything from wristwatches (quartz), automobile spark plugs (kyanite), medical lasers (ruby) and space shuttle windows (sapphire).  Gem experts discover the true colour of a crystal by a streak test.  This involves scraping the crystal across an unglazed ceramic tile to leave a fine dust of particles, revealing the crystal's underlying colour.  The streaks of smoky quartz, violet amethyst, yellow citrine, rose quartz and green aventurine, e.g. are all grey-white - exactly the same as for clear quartz.

Basic colour qualities:
          • black - grounding
          • brown - enabling
          • red - energizing
          • orange - releasing
          • yellow - organizing
          • green - balancing
          • blue - communicating
          • indigo - cooling
          • violet - integrating
          • pink - accepting
          • white - cleansing
          • clear - clarifying
