Healing with Flowers and Crystals
Did you know that crystals and gemstones can be successfully used alongside flower essences to enhance your experience of reaching a more positive emotional state?
These natural remedies work well together to gently improve our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being by holding high vibrational frequencies which create the potential for our bodies to raise their own vibration. They help restore positive balance in the body and influence the healing process to make us feel better, just through the power of their energy!
Combining them provides a more holistic approach, creating a powerful source for change, which can speed up and increase your personal healing journey - by releasing old emotions, thoughts and attitudes that are no longer serving you.
We are all made up of energies which constant change based on our moods, behaviours, attitudes and our environment. The beautiful healing energies of the flower remedies and crystals remain constant, and each work at their own vibrational level which mean that they can raise our self-awareness and help us move towards our own sense of balance. As we are all unique, this will be a different experience for each of us.
When working with them, you need to identify the emotional or physical state that you are experiencing and then look for the best ‘blend’ to give you the most appropriate support. Using them together, creates layers which work together to enhance the effect.
You may already be aware that crystals can choose you as well as you choosing them and so when considering what you need, pick based on what you are drawn to on that particular day. Or look for one that resonates with the symptom you have or the emotion you are feeling or want to feel.
I tend to use pure, unadulterated essential oils in this way too and work with what I am drawn to that day, especially if I am unsure what I actually need. I close my eyes and breathe in the scent to see what I am most attracted to. Our bodies are clever in telling us what they need.
With the Bach Flower Remedies, you choose them based on the current emotional state that you are experiencing, which may mean that you choose more than one remedy. My role as a Practitioner is to work with you to interpret what your personal remedy mix might include to support your healing process.
Why not create your own crystal infused, essential oil roller blend that you can carry around with you, to use as and when you need it? Or create a mini spray by placing small crystals inside a glass bottle and adding essential oils and/or flower essences with distilled water? Spray this in the air or around your aura or environment, as often as needed.
Emotions and feelings that are perceived as negative like anger, fear or stress mean that your vibration becomes lower so here is a short and helpful exercise you can try with your crystals and remedies to help lift your vibration and invite in a sense of calm:
- Place your crystal in a handkerchief or piece of material.
- Dab the crystal with the essential oil and/or flower essence.
- Relax and take slow breaths – in for 4, hold for 4, out for 4 – in through the nose and out through the mouth gently.
- Do this exercise for as long as you need to but I recommend doing it for a few minutes.
- Do not worry if you “think” during this time, this is normal. Just bring your mind back to focusing on your breathing again.
When you have finished, keep the crystal with you. You can also have oils, remedies or crystals by your bed to aid restful sleep or add them to your bath for a soothing experience.
There are some great oils for stress – e.g. Bergamot, Lavender, Wild Orange or Ylang Ylang and an effective flower remedy mix (one you may have heard of and used before) is Rescue Remedy. Did you know that there are 38 flower remedies which cover every kind of emotion?
Hard crystals work well with essential oils but be mindful of using softer crystals and gemstones, e.g. Selenite, which could start to erode over time. Check first before applying. If you are unsure, apply the oils on yourself and then have or hold the crystal near you instead. Also make sure you use pure, unadulterated essential oils as fragrance oils will not work in the same way.
Have fun experimenting with different combinations, there are so many! You can use the crystals with oils or the crystals with remedies, or the crystals, oils and remedies together.
