Bursitis crystal healing with stones, gemstones or chakra stones is amazingly powerful.
I can almost hear you saying though: How in this world can a rock help me to heal my bursitis, is she bonkers?
Well, let's see. Does a nice talk with your friend make you feel better? Music? Dancing? Art? Nature? Good book? Water? Sun?
Anything and everything is a potential healer.
Afterall, our world is nothing more than energy that shows up in various forms, densities and patterns.
There is evidence that stones and crystals have been used for centuries in healing, dating back as far as some 60,000 years ago.
Medical records from 12-18th centuries also describe rather heavy reliance on crystals in treatment of patients with various aliments, taking advantage of this gentle non-invasive form of alternative healing that works holistically to harmonise the mind, body and soul.
Being open to the idea that crystals can help you to relieve bursitis and tendonitis pain and heal is key here.
We all know that copper is excellent for bursitis because it reduces inflammation while boosting metabolism and detoxification processes in tissues.
And do you know what contains heaps of copper? You've got it. Minerals. Crystals like azurite and malachite are loaded with copper. Azurite has (as the name suggests) deep blue 'azure' color and malachite comes in all shades of green, because the copper which it contains is more oxidized than that of azurite.
Another mineral that helps to heal bursitis and tendonitis - by oxygenating the blood - is iron. Healing stones containing iron include bloodstone (again, appropriate name), hematite, sapphire, amethyst, aventurine, jasper (red, ocean), tiger iron, tiger's eye, serpentine, epidote, tourmaline, aventurine (colored).
Calcite contains calcium, which is a vital component of the bones in our skeletal system.
And the list goes on...
Wondering what is the difference between a crystal and a gemstone?
= "Rare, beautiful, durable mineral with almost no flaws."
Not all gemstones are crystals.
Not all crystals are gemstones.
= "Pure chemical substance with molecules arranged in a regular geometric pattern."
This makes crystals special, because molecules in other solid substances are mostly organised in a loose, haphazard manner.
The molecules of a crystal are 'squashed' together very closely, mostly because of the extreme pressure that was applied on them when they were being formed in the earth for thousands of years.
As a result, the molecules in crystals are not able to move around very much and so the energy vibrations are concentrated in one place.
Each crystal has a unique structure, which allows it to resonate at a certain frequency. It is this resonance that gives crystals their healing properties.
In healing terms, this means that the healing bursitis crystal vibrational energy can be directed to a certain place to dissolve energy blockages, and stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms.
This effect, by the way, can be nicely measured. For example, quartz crystals are so powerful in allowing electrical impulses to pass through them via a pre-determined path, that they are used in computer chips and watches.
So don't be surprised by a tingling sensation when you hold your bursitis crystal in your hands. That only means that it is doing its healing magic.
The most basic form of crystal healing is colour therapy and crystals are often called chakra stones.
This is because colour therapy is primarily based on the chakras and their corresponding colours.
For example, if your Root Chakra (also known as Muladhara / Support / Base Chakra) located at the base of the spine is blocked, you can develop hip bursitis.
Root chakra is known for colors red and black. So you could, for example, use the vibrational frequency of red / black hematite and tourmaline colours to rebalance the body.
Added benefit? As we have found out earlier in this article, hematite and tourmaline also contain loads of iron. 2-in-1 bursitis busting effect.
Just a note though. It is important to treat the cause rather than the symptoms of the issue. So, using our hip bursitis example, if your condition is a result of blockage in a flow of energy in another Chakra than the Root one, then that's where the healing powers of the crystals should be directed to instead.
There are different ways how to go about finding your new healing crystal friend. You can choose a stone based on your:
Example: Bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis
Stones: Amethyst, Aventurine, Calcite, Epidote, Black Tourmaline, Howlite, Lapis Lazuli, Lepidolite, Smithsonite
Stones: Amber, Amethyst, Carnelian, Quartz (clear / rose), Lapis Lazuli, Magnetite, Malachite, Smithsonite (pink), Sodalite, Turquoise, Jasper (yellow), Dendritic, Agate
Stones: Aragonite, Calcite, Cavansite, Hematite, Kunzite, Magnetite,
Example: I am born as Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 20)
Birthstones: Tourmalines, Amber, Topaz, Citrine, Ruby, Beryl, Turquoise
Example: Root Chakra
Stones: Any black or red stone, such as Hematite or Tourmaline
