Repetition is the Key to Crystal’s Healing Power
Crystals’ atoms, ions or molecules are arranged in a recurrent theme throughout a given set unit. WHAT? What this means scientifically are the units that make up the structure of a crystal repeats every 5 Angstroms,(1 Angstrom =10-8 cm). Hundreds of Angstroms repeat in a three-dimensional pattern are also known as Crystal Lattice.
Ok, enough of all that scientific talk! Let's take a look at an example shall we and see if we can make more sense of these strange things called crystals.
STRUCTURED PATTERN PICTURE
In the drawing above, you can see the repetitive pattern repeats in orderly three-dimensional units. The image shows an example of Crystal Lattice repetitions. Each section represents every part of the structure. A crystalline pattern is one of the designs of the most precise structure known to man.
In contrast, the photo below is the structural unit of glass – hum - not so well-defined now is it? It is functional glass does fairly well as glass, but the structure is not as well-defined as that of crystals.
UNSTRUCTURED PATTERN or Amorphous
The crystal lattice is so balanced and orderly that their organized structure emits consistent frequencies, and the organization also allows them to store a tremendous amount of information. Silicon is the chemical element with atomic number 14, a nonmetal with semiconducting properties is used in making electronic circuits. (Pretty smart, hey, not really, but someone on Wikipedia surely has some brains).
Anyway, the pure silicon structure is in every single computer, medication, and cell phones, processor screens and much more. Quartz crystals are used in watches and clocks, stabilizing and regulate the flow of energy.
So it would appear that crystal healing works by bringing back the bodies elements to structured equilibrium. The crystal utilizes its own structure to positively interacting with your body's energy field or chakra system. While some gems are said to alleviate stress, others purportedly improve concentration or creativity. Holding a crystal or placing them on your body can promote physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Science has proven that everything is energy, including thoughts. So when you interact positively with a crystal, the crystal will structure those thoughts so that they align with what you desire.
