Crystal Healing Disclaimer: Using crystals to heal physical ailments is a perfect complement to medical care. One should always seek guidance for medical conditions first and add crystals to the protocols as a way to support the treatments received. Crystals should not be the primary treatment without the support of a qualified health care provider.
In Chinese Medicine heart palpitations are defined as the awareness of the heart beating in the chest and the patient/client feels that the beating is irregular. An Acupuncture Physician relies on the patient's experience rather than a diagnostic test, in most cases. Even if you haven't been tested for heart arrhythmia, but are aware of an irregular heartbeat at times, you might have heart palpitations.
In many cases, Chinese Medicine views palpitations as resulting from a deficiency. There can be other causes, but these deficiencies would include what is called Blood Deficiency and Qi Deficiency. In the case of Blood Deficiency, the blood must be strengthened. In the case of Qi Deficiency, the Qi (Chee) must be strengthened. Either way, because Qi & Blood go hand in hand, we would often choose a treatment that benefits both.
For Crystal Healing, choose crystals or stones that strengthen the blood, the energy or the physical body.
One can also view the body in relation to the Chakras. When the heart is affected, or displaying symptoms, the Heart Chakra can benefit from support, cleansing and/or regulation. The heart organ is directly related to the healthy functioning of the Heart Chakra.
Crystals assist healing because they offer a static vibration that when placed near a living being allows the energy of that being to harmonize with the crystal. Carrying a crystal in your pocket or wearing it as jewelry brings it close to your body and within your auric field. Here it offers its static vibration for your body to begin to align with.
To assist your heart in healing, seek crystals or stones that offer a vibration that heals the heart, balances the heart chakra, strengthens the body’s energy or blood and those that instill a sense of peace or counter angst.
Crystals to Benefit the Heart Chakra, the Heart and to Strengthen the Qi or Blood are listed below.
Crystals For Heart Palpitations
Crystals for the Heart Chakra include all crystals which contain the color green (the color of the heart chakra). Use this as a guide, other colors (Rose Quartz, for example) also offer Heart healing. This will resonate the proper vibration to help the heart chakra adjust to its natural frequency.
Other crystals that support the Heart and Heart Chakra include...
Although these crystals all benefit the heart, the best way to find the right crystals for you is to try them out. “How do I choose a crystal?”, is a question I’m often asked. There’s no ‘right way’ and no ‘wrong way’ to choose a crystal or stone. Select yours based on function, beauty, feeling compelled, a sense that you ‘know’, a dream, someone mentions it to you and so on. There really is not right way. If you seek a certain function, such as healing the heart, choose from crystals that have that function. Other than that, your way IS the ‘right way’.
You may find that you like a single crystal to meditate with. Or you may find that you like to work with several crystals at a time. Try placing an Emerald over your heart chakra as you fall asleep at night. Or put a Rose Quartz in your pocket as you go about your day. Pay attention to any changes that occur. And, of course, if you need healing support, seek the right provider for you. Don’t ignore chest pain.
Wishing you the best in healing.
