When most people get a headache they reach straight for a bottle of aspirin, however aspirin isn’t the “miracle drug” some people claim it to be. Among the list of side effects caused by aspirin are ulcers, heartburn, vomiting and nausea. That’s why many people are looking for a safer, natural alternative rather than using aspirin to relieve a headache.
There’s currently a lot of momentum behind the crystal healing method. Despite no real scientific studies in the field, many people report positive results after undergoing a session of crystal therapy. It’s important to remember that a lack of understanding does not equal a lack of truth. From a purely results orientated point of view, crystal healing works.
Crystal healing practitioners theories that headaches are a result of imbalanced energies within the chakras. The seven chakras are:
– Crown Chakra
– Third Eye Chakra
– Throat Chakra
– Heart Chakra
– Solar Plexus Chakra
– Sacral Chakra
– Root Chakra
On a biological level these chakras happen to line up rather neatly with seven glands. This possibly reveals that crystals can effect the production of hormones, which are a form of energy.
So what is the crystal healing method of alleviating a headache? Well, since your energies are imbalanced the use of an amethyst crystal is recommended. Amethyst is a purple crystal and is known to have a balancing effect. You should be able to find small amethyst crystals as cheap as $0.50 a piece. My method of relieving headaches requires three amethyst crystals.
Amethyst Crystal Headache Healing Method
Lie down on a flat, comfortable surface such as a bed or a couch. Make sure you have enough space to fully stretch out and that the room is of a pleasant temperature. If you have any relaxing music or nature sounds then you can play them at a low level as this can enhance the healing process.
Take two of your amethyst crystals and place them either side of your throat, just above your collar bone. They should both be pointing upwards. Place your third crystal on the center of your forehead – again pointing upwards. This placement relieves stress tension and balances energies around the head and neck.
Now close your eyes and take a slow, deep breath through your nose. Hold the breath for a second before exhaling slowly through your mouth. Keep repeating this breathing pattern as you picture yourself from above. Imagine a purple healing glow is exuding from the crystals. This gentle glow begins to envelop your head and neck. Breathe in this balancing, healing energy and release any pain or tension with every outward breath.
Your headache should subside within a few minutes, leaving you to get on with your day feeling calm, relaxed and headache free.
