Crystals and Energy Healing
What is Hematite? It’s a very grounding and protective stone. It was once known as the “bloodstone” due to the fact that when polishing it, the water turns red. The Egyptians used it to promote healthy blood. It’s excellent at absorbing negative energy. It’s associated with the root chakra. Hematite’s properties are about feeling connected and secure. And this is precisely why people travel to Sedona. Travelers tend to explore their foundational beliefs and work on their spirituality, clearing blocked energy. They also feel safe enough in Sedona to do some deep metaphysical work. Whether it’s clearing toxic relationships or learning to let go, Sedona is the place to do it. So in today’s terms, people still come to Sedona to “clear bad blood” but that’s just a metaphor for working on relationships and making things right. Even if it’s the relationship you have with yourself.
Equally impressive, Sedona’s sandstone buttes and mesas consist of crystalline growths (quartz crystals) to assist travelers who are seeking clarity and direction. Clear quartz is known to enhance the clarity of mind. It’s popular in meditation and used for focus and manifestation. Quartz is considered by some to be the “master healing.” It can assist in giving insight into emotions and feelings. It can release energy, store energy, and regulate energy. That’s why it’s used in many clocks and in computers.
Quartz generates a small voltage when pressure is applied. Metaphorically this is interesting because we tend to do spiritual work when we are under pressure and need the energy to move. Thus walking on the red rocks is like walking on a bed of quartz. And working with crystals is one way to look deeper into the Soul. Sedona is the perfect place to do just that and in the process, heal your energy. See more about crystals that heal.
