It’s safe to assume we all know someone who has been touched by cancer in some way. I have a very dear friend going through treatments right now. Innately my drive is to help people. Over time, I’ve discovered I can only help people that want to be helped.
In the quest to help my friend in ways that I can, making reiki-infused crystal jewelry is something I can do to help her. Bracelets are pretty, fun to receive, and gemstones are pretty dang cool.
Interestingly, crystals have been used for centuries. Things like carvings from mammoth ivory to amulets date back thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians used emerald, turquoise, lapis lazuli, clear quartz, and others in their jewelry and life events. Ancient Greeks used crystals for a variety of events. Ancient China highly valued jade.
Crystal healing can be a bit controversial. Generalizing Westerners, when healing is brought up, the thought of hospitals, medications, and traditional clinic facilities is at the forefront of the mind. In reality, there are many forms of healing. Naturally grown plants, herbs, spirit guides, minerals, or ceremonies used to be the only “medicine” and still are in some cultures. Over time this has evolved. Now those are considered new age or alternative techniques.
Some people are drawn to rocks and gems by how they look, others are drawn to one but don’t know why. There are hundreds of books on crystals and crystal healing and many metaphysical shops to take classes at.
Each gemstone has different properties and vibrates at different frequencies that correlate to different parts of the body and different chakras (the seven major energy fields that run through your body). Everything has energy. When the frequencies in your body are higher, you are more in line with your true self.
The chakra system runs through all life and through the human energy system. They are an important part of our being, they are the body’s energy centers through which the life force flows. These are the keys to emotional well-being, physical health, and mental clarity. When one or more of these vortexes get blocked, it sends our energy system off and this has a direct impact on our physical body. Blocks can happen by stress, toxins, trauma, and a number of other things. The seven chakras are root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown.
For specific ailments, there is a crystal to go with that correlates to that chakra point. In alphabetical order, here are my favorites to make jewelry with.

In no way am I saying crystals are the ultimate and only healer. Always seek medical attention when necessary. What I am saying is that if you are drawn to and enjoy crystals, having them or experiencing them in your space might help you get through.
