Contemporary shaman from a large variety of cultures use crystals, stones and/or rocks in their healing practices. Shamanic Gems are also very popular. There are numerous ways to use crystals and Shamanic Gems for healing. Whether they are being utilized by the individual or administered by a healer. One of the most popular methods of obtaining healing benefits from gems and crystals is to wear them on the body in the form of crystal jewelry or crystal pendants which can be purchased pre-set onto chains. Some shaman purchase or make silk or cotton “crystal sacks” that may be filled with any combination of small gems and worn around the neck by the patient (under the clothing) for one or several days at a time. The gems are then removed and cleansed before re-use. Shaman Crystal Stones Rocks are also used for healing by placing in purified water for several hours; once the water is charged it is then consumed in small quantities throughout the day or used to bath or shower with. Healing crystals can also be directly added to the bath water in which the person wishing to be healed will soak for a half hour or more to absorb the properties of a specific stone or combination of stones. Yet another method is to place the stones upon the body at vital points or chakra areas to enhance balance and energy flow. The art of chakra crystal healing is a science unto itself and is quite involved. No matter how shaman crystal stones rocks and Shamanic Gems are used for healing, it is vital that they are properly cleansed for at least twenty-four hours after each use to rid them of any bad energy which has been absorbed. It is also suggested that you do not allow any one but yourself to handle your personal crystal healing stones unless you are a qualified healer and have purchased them for the purpose of healing clients.
In addition to healing stones, crystals and rocks, another gift from nature, that has remained a great secret to many, but which is even more ancient are Mustika crystals; also known as mustika pearls or stones. These are used in the same way that other shaman crystal stones rocks and Shamanic Gems are used. These gems from nature are extremely powerful when used for physical, mental and spiritual healing. Both strikingly beautiful and remarkably powerful Mustika pearls offer a wealth of healing properties to their owners. As with healing crystals, each Mustika has its own unique property that will aid in fortifying health and well being. For instance Dark Honey Mustika Pearls are used for speedy healing of wounds and to increase good energy within the body, while Sea Water Pearls are used for cleansing the mind and body of impurities.
There are many who study the art of shamanism who believe that Mustika are even more powerful than healing crystals or Shamanic Gems for this purpose and these items have been experiencing a growth in popularity due to this. Word is spreading quickly and Mustika will not remain a treasured secret much longer. Like their crystal cousins the methods of use are very similar. Mustika pearls may be used in the same ways as healing shaman crystal stones rocks are for absorbing negative energy and boosting the immune system. The smaller pearls may be worn around the neck in a crystal sack, used to charge water or other beverages that have absorbed their charge and used to bath in or laid upon the body on the chakra points to enhance energy, balance and good health.The power of healing shaman crystal stones rocks, Shamanic Gems and Mustika pearls for therapeutic use has been gaining esteem in recent years and interest will only continue to grow as more and more people turn away from traditional, more invasive forms of curing common ailments.
