'You know the world is a magical place when Mother Earth is growing her own jewellery'
Crystals have been sought after, cherished and used for healing practices since time immemorial.
Judy Hall so aptly puts it in her phenomenal crystal lexicon 'The Crystal Bible' that 'Their brightness is what most people think of when they hear the word "crystal".'
Crystals were created as the earth formed and they have continued to metamorphose as the planet itself has changed. Crystals are the earth's DNA, a chemical imprint for evolution. They are miniature storehouses, containing the records of the development of the earth over millions of years, and bearing the indelible memory of the powerful forces that shaped it. Some have been subjected to enormous pressure, others grew in chambers deep underground, some were laid down in layers, others dripped into being-all of which affects their properties and the way they function. Whatever form they take, their crystalline structure can absorb, conserve, focus, and emit energy, especially on the electromagnetic waveband.*
And indeed it is the luminosity that fascinates, or in darker stones, the firm complexity and beauty of particular stones. A special form of crystal healing through deep tissue facial massage is achieved by using crystal Gua Shas. Originating in ancient medical traditions in China and Southeast Asia, Gua Sha can be most easily described as a specialised stone treatment for the face.
Its tremendous effects in detoxification, destressing and depuffng the skin make Gua Sha in itself an incredible treatment. Adding the benefits of crystal tools used to perform the treatment, the results can be compared to a natural facelift. Gua Sha massage reaches beyond the surface of the skin and stimulates muscles, lymph and connective tissue and creates better results than any product or machine could.
Gua Shas come in a variety of shapes and materials. A stellar selection of Creative Kimiyo Crystal Gua Shas are available in Rose Quartz, Aventurine, Obsidian and Amethyst as wands, knobs, spreads, leaves and also come in a precious butterfly or heart shape.
Each stone has specific properties that may support each individual healing journey:
Rose Quartz, for example, is the stone of unconditional love and infinite peace. It is the most important crystal for the heart and the heart chakra, teaching the true essence of love.
It purifies and opens the heart at all levels, and brings deep inner healing and self love.
It is calming, reassuring, and excellent for use in trauma or crisis and mid-life crisis.
Rose Quartz strengthens the physical heart and circulatory system and releases impurities from body fluids. Placed on the thymus, Rose Quartz aids chest and lung problems. It heals the kidneys and adrenals and alleviates vertigo. Rose Quartz is said to increase fertility. The stone or elixir soothes burns and blistering and smoothes the complexion. lt is helpful in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and senile dementia.
Rose Quartz gently draws off negative energy and replaces it with loving vibes. It strengthens empathy and sensitivity and aids the acceptance of necessary change.
Emotionally, Rose Quartz is the finest healer. Releasing unexpressed emotions and heartache and transmuting emotional conditioning that no longer serves, it soothes internalized pain and heals deprivation.
If you have never received love, Rose Quartz opens your heart so that you become receptive. If you have loved and lost it comforts your grief. Rose Quartz teaches you how to love yourself, vitaI if you have thought yourself unlovable. You cannot accept love from others nor love them unless you love yourself. This stone encourages self-forgiveness and acceptance, and invokes self-trust and self-worth.
