Unless you have an interest in metaphysics, you probably would not ponder the use of crystals for healing. To most people, they are just rocks! People in the metaphysical community, however, believe that crystals hold power and that this power can be used for different purposes. One of the primary reasons psychics and mediums use crystals is for energy healing. Based on the needs of the client, stones can be used to facilitate changes in energy whether it is by strengthening, opening, balancing, or shifting.
Crystals are sort of an energy steroid that boost the healing process in the weak areas of a person’s life. Some areas of healing include coping with oppressive relationships, anxiety, lack of prosperity, and lack of purpose. Crystals may also be used for protection, grounding from trauma, and aiding against negativity in general. Psychics and mediums may also use these stones in ceremonies they conduct for a petition or desire that a client has requested and for reasons such as dream therapy and developing psychic abilities.
In addition to considering the client’s healing needs, psychics and mediums consider other factors when choosing a crystal. The client’s individual preference, the color and shape of the crystal, and its mineral characteristics can play a part in choosing specific stones.

SHAPE OF A CRYSTAL
The texture and shape of a stone are also qualities that are considered when choosing them for healing. A tumbled rose quartz stone may be used for holding by a person in need of developing their self-esteem. The smoothness and energy of a tumbled stone as opposed to the quartz in its raw form may be more soothing and calming to a person in need of this kind of energy.
Many crystals are carved to specific shapes, and this can be a factor in the healing qualities that they provide. It is said that crystal skulls are particularly helpful for healing people because the energy striking the skull is most like the energy striking a person. Animal shapes are also popular because they provide energy associated with that animal.
Horse energy, for example, is helpful for those needing to move forward in life. The horse has contributed to mankind’s progress in ways that no other animal has in history. This energy may assist in developing confidence and a “never give up” attitude. Turtle energy is another positive power for it is about being methodical and persevering.
