The Decision To NOT Use Crystals or Semi Precious Stones In My Healing Practice As Well As In My Personal Daily Life.
Approximately 10 years ago was when I started a healing practice that involved energy healing work. When it came to crystals and semi precious stones in my energy healing practice at first I had to get adjusted to the concept that they actually worked. I was only able to see from a perspective of a science based mind until I was explained that crystals and semi precious stones are vibrating at different frequencies did it start to make sense. At the time almost every single healer I came in contact with had crystals adorning their bodies or were utilizing them in their own energy healing practices.
When asking why they were using them they stated of having great results with their clients when utilizing their metaphysical properties. In the end I too wanted to have great results so I started my journey down the path of which crystals or semi precious stones did what and utilizing them in my own healing practice.
Throughout the ten years I received crystals and semi precious stones from family and friends as gifts. These I will keep and treasure however I will not be wearing them any more. I will not be purchasing them any more. I will not be asking for them for gift ideas. I will not utilize them in my energy healing practice.
Why such an extreme change? With investigation into the crystals and the semi precious stones I was able to determine that too many of them are being mined improperly. I refuse to contribute to the devastating disastrous ways in which the crystals and semi precious stones are mined for the use of mankind. Crystals are now to coin a phrase "the new blood diamond".
It is unethical the ways in which the mining process is accomplished. From numerous reports of the violation of human rights, the stripping of the environment around the area that is being mined to the child labor just to name a few of the unethical ways this Mama is bowing out.
It reminds me of the sad story of the shells that once were on the beaches of the beautiful islands of Hawaii. Now there is hardly any at all. On rarity is there a shell the size of a quarter.
This creates a sense of leave the crystals where they came from. There is a reason as to why they are where they are.
May I have not offended anyone with this article.
Medicine Maker Mama writes to enlighten those around her.
Energy work has and always will be amazingly healing without the use of the crystals or the semi precious stones. When becoming a certified master teacher of Reiki not once did Dr. Usui the founder and sensei of Reiki ever state the utilization of crystals or stones. It is not needed.
Reiki works all on its own and it is awesome.
