Color therapy is often used in alternative healing involving vibrational medicine. Color is simply one form of visible light…or electromagnetic energy.
EM energy = light…one in the same.
All the colors we can see within the visible spectrum carry their own unique vibration of this energy. The color of a crystal or stone plays a really important part in how it will be used for healing.
Color, (or more specifically “light” in various frequencies that we can actually see) is just a tiny part of the electromagnetic spectrum (EM spectrum). The colors (light frequencies) arrange themselves in order of decreasing vibrational wavelengths. Of these specific light frequencies, red is the longer wavelength (lower frequency) & violet is the shortest wavelength (higher frequency).
Actually…everything on the EM spectrum is a type of light. Just a small part of the spectrum is the visible light that we can see.
The color of a crystal or stone plays a really important part in how it will be used in healing. Color is much more than just something that’s pretty. We may find that we’re drawn to a specific color, that we often wear the same color, or that just seeing a certain hue makes us feel better, uplifted, joyful. This makes total sense when you consider that each of our chakras correlates with a specific color:
So how does all this tie into healing with crystals?
In order to understand where on the EM spectrum a stone matches up vibrationally, we simply match its color with its corresponding chakra color. Its color frequency is going to vibrate & match with its color. Making sure you use crystals or stones whose color matches with the chakra colors allows harmonizing photons of light to harmonize & amplify; generating color healing.
Using specific crystals or stones introduces light of specific frequencies–colors–into a person’s electromagnetic field, also known as their aura. This synchronizes a person’s emotional and biochemical states and encourages balance & good health.
For example, you would like to open your throat chakra to help facilitate communication. Each chakra has a corresponding color associated with it. The colors are really easy to memorize…they follow the order of the colors of the rainbow or you can just refer to that chart above. Blue is the throat chakra color. So you would work with a blue stone: blue lace agate, turquoise, or celestite for instance.
Using color as a way of healing has actually been practiced for a very long time–many ancient cultures utilized this form of therapy & only now has modern science & alternative healing begun to catch up.
There are many ways you can work with a crystal. Just to name a few…
Did you know that Kyanite brings ALL the chakras into alignment? The best way to use this stone is in meditation. It can bridge energetic blocks in the aura and emotional blocks between people. It can assist in negotiation/arbitration and other forms of communication between disharmonious people.
Lemurian Quartz Crystals teach oneness, reminding us that while we are all individuals, we are also connected to each other, and that we are all equal in Spirit.
It is believed that there was once an advanced ancient civilization called Lemuria, similar to Atlantis but more spiritually developed and peaceful. As the end of their time on Earth was approaching, the Lemurians programmed these crystals to teach their messages of oneness and healing, including specific information about our planet, how to heal the planet; messages that would be revealed when the energy on Earth was ready to receive them centuries later. According to Katrina Raphaell, the Lemurian Crystals were like “seeds of information” planted or left in one location only; one specific spot, known as the Diamantina Mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Other sources state that Lemurian Seed Crystals are planted in a grid pattern over the surface of the Earth and beyond, to other stars and dimensions. When you connect to a Lemurian Crystal and the energy it contains, you are also connecting to this grid of associated energies from the Earth, the stars, and beyond.
Lemurians can come in all different sizes, but the shape should always be a tapered wand shape—a little wider at the base and more tapered at the end.
There’s a difference between Lemurian Crystals and Lemurian Seed Crystals.
Another characteristic of a Lemurian Crystal will be that it has rough, prominent, horizontal striations on some sides of the shaft, similar to bar codes. But you will not only see them; in order for it to be a true Lemurian, you need to be able to feel them! Run your finger alongside without looking and if you can feel those “ladder rung” striations, then it’s a Lemurian, (if it meets all the other criteria.)
As opposed to Quartz that you program, Lemurian Quartz Crystals are a type of Quartz that you activate. As you meditate, rub your finger along the “bar codes” on the side of a Lemurian Quartz Crystal to activate and download Lemurian knowledge and connect to the Lemurian energy grid.
Keep in mind, it’s said that the more they’re used, the more powerful they become!
Additional information channeled by Katrina Raphaell: “Another piece of information that we received is that if you hold a Lemurian Seed Quartz in your right hand while you walk around and encircle something (a person, an object, your house, etc.) it will create a circle of light protection. These crystals will be attracted to people who will actively assist in anchoring the energies that will aid the planet in these times. They have not yet been fully activated but are helping to set a strong foundation for the original blueprint of love flourishing throughout creation. As we grow in awareness of the primal unity of all things and open our hearts more, the Lemurian Seed Crystal transmission will permeate.
Obsidian is a volcanic glass, born literally of forceful fiery energy.
Birthed in a volcanic eruption when molten lava spews up from a volcano, obsidian flies out & then cools quickly once it touches the cooler land or much cooler water, sometimes forming tiny bubbles within…and cooling much too quickly for its atoms to arrange themselves in the necessary crystalline atomic structure to qualify as a mineral. This makes it a glass & not a crystal.
Obsidian is marked by its absence of crystals. Obsidian can be found in locations which have experienced rhyolitic eruptions. In the U.S. obsidian flows which may be hiked on are found within the calderas of Newberry Volcano and Medicine Lake Volcano in the Cascade Range of western North America, and at Inyo Craters east of the Sierra Nevada in California. Yellowstone National Park has a mountainside containing obsidian located between Mammoth Hot Springs and the Norris Geyser Basin, and deposits can be found in many other western U.S. states including Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Obsidian can also be found in the eastern U.S. states of Virginia, as well as Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
Remember that obsidian is volcanic glass so it has a direct fiery energy to it. Perhaps due to how it originates, generally it’s a pretty powerful stone. Obsidian is great for quick & powerful grounding, cleansing away deep or stubborn negative feelings & when you need POWERFUL psychic protection. However wearing or carrying obsidian for prolonged periods is often discouraged. It is so strong in grounding that it may produce feelings of depression.
You may want to create a gem water or crystal essence… To be safe, always check to be sure there are no toxic minerals in the crystals or stones you plan to use that can leech out into the water.
This is by no means a comprehensive toxic crystals and stones list & I am always adding to & tweaking it. Please always do your own research in addition to checking here. When in doubt, do without!

Radioactivity Concerns: Some granites emit radon from the decay of Uranium. The risk is low, however if you have concerns please download this publication: A Citizen’s Guide to Radon: The Guide to Protecting Yourself and Your Family from Radon. This guide offers strategies for testing your home for radon, discusses steps to take after you’ve tested, discussions of the risk of radon & radon myths.
You may have a valid concern if you own artificially irradiated crystals, gems or stones. Try to steer clear of the following:
Your entire existence…all matter, all life, all experiences–everything owes its existence in the physical world to frequency. Absolutely everything is frequency. You cannot have an experience on this planet without attracting it through frequency. Every emotion, including love and hate tunes into a specific frequency. Health has a frequency. Disease has frequency. Your organs are each tuned to a specific frequency as is your entire body which resonates at its own frequency. You are a symphony of frequencies while you project yourself through this universe and create your physical reality. You are a master of your energy, and thus you are able to control everything you are, everything you do, everything you experience. From the day you are born until the day you die, nothing will ever change the fact that you are both a frequency emitter and receiver in flux with your internal and external environment.
DNA possesses two structural characteristics of fractal antennas, electronic conduction and self symmetry. Electrical conduction allows the movement of electrically charged particles within the body and that flow produces our life force.
Life itself as we know it is inextricably interwoven with geometric forms. The molecules of our DNA, the cornea of our eye, snow flakes, pine cones, flower petals, diamond crystals, the branching of trees, a nautilus shell, the star we spin around, the galaxy we spiral within, the air we breathe, and all life forms as we know them emerge out of timeless geometric codes.
Our human bodies on this planet all developed with a common geometric progression from one to two to four to eight primal cells and beyond.
The universe is more than 99.999% empty space, including our own bodies. All physical things are made of atoms which are mostly empty space. If the nucleus was the size of a marble, the electrons would be specks of dust a half mile away. Every physical thing has that much empty space in it. Inside that empty space is intelligence and frequency.
Almost everywhere we look, the mineral intelligence embodied within crystalline structures follows a geometry,unfaltering in its exactitude. The lattice patterns of crystals all express the principles of mathematical perfection and repetition of a fundamental essence, each with a characteristic spectrum of resonances defined by the angles, lengths and relational orientations of its atomic components.
The human genome is packed with at least four million gene switches that reside in bits of DNA that once were dismissed as “junk” but it turns out that so-called junk DNA plays critical roles in controlling how cells, organs and other tissues behave. The discovery, considered a major medical and scientific breakthrough, has enormous implications for human health and consciousness because many complex diseases appear to be caused by tiny changes in hundreds of gene switches.
As scientists delved into the “junk” — parts of the DNA that are not actual genes containing instructions for proteins — they discovered a complex system that controls genes. At least 80 percent of this DNA is active and needed. Another 15-17 percent has higher functions scientists are still decoding.
Chronic disease occurs when voltage drops below a certain voltage. Cells then don’t have enough energy to work correctly and amount of oxygen in cells drops, switching from aerobic (oxygen- available) metabolism to anaerobic (oxygen diminished) metabolism.
The natural properties of biomolecular structures enables cell components and whole cells to oscillate and interact resonantly with other cells. The cells of the body and cellular components possess the ability to function as electrical resonators.
Professor H. Frohlich has predicted that the fundamental oscillation in cell membranes occurs at frequencies of the order of 100 GHz and that biological systems possess the ability to create and utilize coherent oscillations and respond to external oscillations.
Because cell membranes are composed of dielectric materials a cell will behave as dielectric resonator and will produce an evanescent electromagnetic field in the space around itself. This field does not radiate energy but is capable of interacting with similar systems.
The applications of certain frequencies by frequency generating devices can enhance or interfere with cellular resonance and cellular metabolic and electrical functions. The changes in the degree that water is structured in a cell or in the ECM will affect the configurations and liquid crystal properties of proteins, cell membranes, organelle membranes and DNA.
Healthy tissues have more structured water than unhealthy tissues. Clinicians who recognize this fact have found that certain types of music, toning, chanting, tuning forks, singing bowls, magnetic waters, certain types of frequency generators, phototherapy treatments and homeopathic preparations can improve water structuring in the tissues and health when they are correctly utilized.
There are multiple structures in cells that act as electronic components. If biological tissues and components of biological tissues can receive, transduce and transmit electric, acoustic, magnetic, mechanical and thermal vibrations then this may help explain such phenomena as:
1. Biological reactions to atmospheric electromagnetic and ionic disturbance (sunspots, thunder storms and earthquakes).
2. Biological reactions to the earth’s geomagnetic and Schumann fields.
3. Biological reactions to hands on healing.
4. Biological responses to machines that produce electric, magnetic, photonic and acoustical vibrations (frequency generators).
5. Medical devices that detect,analyze and alter biological electromagnetic fields (the biofield).
6. How techniques such as acupuncture, moxibustion, and laser (photonic) acupuncture can result in healing effects and movement of Qi.
7. How body work such as deep tissue massage, physical therapy, chiropractics can promote healing.
8. Holographic communication.
9. How neural therapy works
10. How electrodermal screening works
11. How some individuals have the capability of feeling, interpreting and correcting alterations in another individual’s biofield
Biological organisms use weak electromagnetic fields (electric and photonic) to communicate with all parts of themselves An electric field can carry information through frequency and amplitude fluctuations.
There is at present on our planet, a great schism in belief regarding resonant frequency. There are those who believe that yes, we all vibrate to the same frequency, whether it is the vibrational rate of the energy points or the vibrational rate of the liver. And many of these are people who believe they have indeed figured out the vibrational rate of the various organs, other bodily parts and etheric fields have invented instruments, made tapes or created machines which will somehow project the correct resonant frequency back in to the body to heal what ails you.
Then, there are others who believe that we are all unique vibratory beings; that the frequencies of our organs and bodily systems may be different and are not the same.
One fact will always remain…we are all energy bounded by frequency. How we interpret ourselves and our universe is guided by the one elusive concept that scientists still find mysterious, yet intriguing. Until that day comes when more research is devoted to how frequencies affect our entire existence, the answers to those mysteries will remain unanswered.

School is starting up again and some children may need a little bit of help in just calming down their energy a little bit.
Kids are way more energetically perceptive than adults.
Children are not as jaded & dulled as some adults. So, they’re much more in tune with energies. Without the adult filters & dulling that many of us have, children can better discern & intuitively know what crystals they should be working with and tapping into or entraining with.
Let them figure it out, let them pick it
Maybe give them a selection of 10 crystals to pick from. It’s not too many, it’s not too little & it actually gives them the power to choose which ones are the best ones for them.
Here are some Crystal Choices for Kids for Calming Energy:
Hematite is a favorite for grounding the child & calming them down for the type of environment of most classrooms. It’s also good for helping a child feel protected, safe in a good grounded environment that’s protected and safe for them.
Another favorite for gentle (not overpowering) protection for kids is black tourmaline. A black tourmaline pendent is a good option if your child is old enough to wear pendants. Or you could give them a smooth polished stone (rough or raw tends to splinter) to carry in their pocket.
Amethyst. Amethyst seems to be an all around favorite, a really good crystal for just about anything. It’s got a really nice energy, gentle but protective as well, so that’s a good one.
Rose quartz is a favorite of kids, both boys and girls. They tend to easily gravitate to it so it’s a natural partnership. So definitely include it in the choice-mix you offer to your child.
Ever walk into a space & have it just not feel good? That feeling is a very real thing!
It’s the vibrational frequencies of the space interacting with your electromagnetic field.
We naturally crave an environment that feels energetically welcoming.
A home or work space that’s vibing with feel-good energy is one that you feel at home in, that you feel positive in, that inspires creativity & good conversation.
It’s a place you enjoy doing your favorite things in or allows you to relax, meditate, read, etc.
Since a good-feeling space is not a vibrational match to negative feeling frequencies, you’ll be less likely to have arguments, sadness or even uneasy feelings in a space that’s been energetically-tended-to.
WAYS TO RAISE THE VIBRATION OF YOUR SPACE:
1. Clear the clutter & do some physical cleaning – it’s a must-do before you do anything else! A space that’s filled with clutter or dust is energetically clogged & not allowing the energy to flow, not allowing the stagnant negative feeling vibes to clear out.
You’ll feel the change right away!
2. Use essential oils – 100% pure essential oils (organic fair-trade & sustainably harvested preferred!) are high vib’ing. You can add them to your space in a couple of ways. You can actually use them to help clean in the above step.(http://cleanmyspace.com/7-diy-cleaners-that-smell-amazing/)
Then once the cleaning is done, keep the vibes high in your space by using the oils in an oil burner or a diffuser.
3. Salt Lamps – these are great for inducing negative ions into your environment & for restructuring the energy of our environment. Plus they shine a soft beautiful & comforting light that does wonders for our energetic state.
4. Crystal Placement – simply place crystals throughout your space intuitively; wherever you think they feel or look best.
Just having the crystals in your space will synchronize with the energy around you. Whenever you enter the space, you’ll feel the difference from a space that isn’t as vibrationally aligned.
5. Crystal Grids – creating a crystal grid is a way to organize or structure the energy from your crystals towards a specific intention.
You can grid a room by simply taking 4 clear quartz points and putting one in each corner facing inwards towards the center of the room. Then just let them communicate with each other.
6. Sage or Palo Santo Smudge – Pick up a smudge stick, or loose sage (usually white sage is used for the purposes of clearing out) and burn it slowly (after you light it blow out the flame & it will cont. to smolder & smoke) in a fireproof safe bowl, dish or shell like an abalone shell. Allow the smoke to waft around & smudge the space. Or use a Palo Santo spray.
7. Sound Clearing – We can easily use acoustic energy to restructure the energy of our space (it’s all about sound vibrations). Very easy to do!
You can use any sort of high amplitude (loud) acoustic instrument, but I prefer to use something that’s pleasing to my ears:
8. Let Mother Nature in – open up the windows & grow indoor plants.
Mother Nature induces negative ions & that’s a GOOD THING for our spaces. So as much as possible allow nature into your space!
