How is it possible that a rock can help in healing the human body? What proof do we have that crystals are not simply inanimate objects that serve no purpose other than their aesthetic appeal? Is there a science behind the use of crystals and physical healing?
Piezoelectric Energy and Crystals
Crystals form in the ground through a combination of water, heat and pressure, the latter being the state of piezoelectric energy. Quartz crystals have a unique ability to convert electrical energy to mechanical energy and vice versa. This is called the piezoelectric effect. In 1880, scientists Jacque and Pierre Curie first demonstrated this effect that stemmed a revolution of technology using quartz.
They showed that quartz crystals have the ability to receive, process and transmit precise
vibrations which stimulate the energy in many of our modern technological devices. Computers, digital watches, radios, sonar, cigarette lighters, electric guitars, electrical units in cars and satellites all operate on crystalline energy.
Since then, scientists have also found that quartz crystals are capable of receiving and transmitting energy that can store, amplify, transfer, and transform other vibrational frequencies of energy in the form of precise, periodic pulses. The US military made the decision to incorporate crystal control into all of their communications systems in 1939, and military historians say this decision contributed greatly to the Allied victory in World War II.
According to Dr. Richard Gerber in his book Vibrational Medicine, “The crystalline structure will respond in unique and precise ways to a wide spectrum of energies including heat, light, pressure, sound, electricity, gamma rays, microwaves, bioelectricity and even the energies of consciousness. In response to these varying energetic inputs, the molecular structure of the crystal will undergo particular modes of oscillation, thereby creating specific vibratory frequencies of energy transmission.”
Crystals and Healing
How does this all translate to healing the human body? The chemical make-up of crystals is silicon oxide. Our bodies also have a silicon base and it has been shown that the pineal gland (which some people consider to be the master gland) also has a crystalline structure.
Tests have shown that every mineral specimen has a vibratory rate that, when matched to different parts of the human body, will assist in bringing that part of the body back to its natural vibration. Quartz crystal has the closest vibration to that of the human body of any other mineral which is why it is so effective in healing work. Renowned IBM scientist and crystal healer Marcel Vogel points out, “The crystal is a neutral object whose inner structure exhibits a state of perfection and balance.”
The crystal has an almost innate intelligence which helps it to focus on the needs of the physical body for healing. The crystal amplifies and directs its energy to “unblock” the stagnant energy thereby allowing for balance in the energy system.
When we are not in touch with our feelings, our thoughts, and our spiritual connection, our energy field becomes unaligned causing physical discomfort and even illness. Because healing is not simply a physical act, the resonance of crystals also works on the mental, emotional, and spiritual levels to assist us in understanding the nature of our dis-ease. The ability of crystals to assist us with our own awareness is a key factor in how they help us heal.
Marcel Vogel also noted that we can transfer thought forms into crystals. He states,
“Although the crystal may be used for “mind to mind” communication, its higher purpose…is in the service of humanity for the removal of pain and suffering. With proper training, a healer can release negative thought forms which have taken shape as disease patterns in a patient's physical body.”
The key concept which Dr. Vogel has presented is that the quartz crystal is capable of amplifying and directing the natural energies of the healer. The subtle energies of the healer’s field become focused and coherent in a manner similar to a laser.

How Does This Help You?
I have seen and experienced many examples of crystal healing which have given me the freedom to live with a more open mind, a healthier emotional state and a happier all around existence. The crystals helped to put me in touch with my “true” nature, allowing me to see life from a different perspective, clearing out many of the old conditionings and beliefs that I once held. In doing so, not only am I better able to live my life with awareness, but to also restore the connection to my inner and outer spirit.
Healing is not simply about curing a pain or a dis-ease. True healing unlocks the blocks that prevent us from letting go of the past in order to live in the present moment. Crystals and stones are a pathway by which we can direct our lives to a more perfect union with the Universal Consciousness. Crystals are pure thought forms, pure energy that allow us the gift of a joyful, complete existence.
