Crystal Healing in Shamanism

Christa Lynn offers Shamanic Healing in Vancouver BC. Crystals are often used in shamanic healing. Crystals are considered gifts from the earth. In shamanic healing practices crystals were widely used for healing. Crystal healing used by shamans would often vary. Sometimes crystals would be used in shamanic extraction techniques as a cleansing tool in order to remove intrusive energies from the body that was causing pain or a physical illness. The crystal in this case would be placed near the body and act as a "vacuum cleaner" pulling out the intrusive energy to be captured within the crystal. The crystal would then be cleansed of the intrusive energy either by smudging, flame, salt or blessed waters. Also, in shamanic soul retrieval healing, a crystal is often used in order to capture the lost soul part (or spiritual essence) of a person and then this soul part is then returned to the individual via the crystal and the shaman would blow the soul part back into the top of the person's head from the crystal. The crystal would act as a cocoon for the soul part to carry safely back to the person. Also, as a part of crystal healing, crystals can be laid out upon the body in specific crystal layouts as shown in this photo. Here, in this crystal healing layout, the crystals are infusing healing energies into the body and are cleansing and strengthening the chakras for a harmonious flow of energy to encourage healing and balance. This layout can be very restorative to the the body after receiving a full shamanic session.

Since crystals are highly infused with healing energies, they are consider sacred tools by many indigenous shamans. In my shamanic healing practice in Vancouver, I often use a comibination of shamanic techniques, crystal layout healing and reiki for a truly integrated experience.

Christa also offers Crystal Healing Sessions in Vancouver BC and Christa also teaches Crystal Healing Classes in Vancouver BC.
