Did YOU ask, “Can crystals have magical powers?” Of course they can! It is believed by many people that crystals can channel good “energy” and ward off bad “energy.” Crystals can sometimes carry “vibrations” that will resonate with healing “frequencies,” work with the chakras of the body, and help balance yin and yang. Crystals allegedly affect the emotions and can also be used for physical healing, as well as solving emotional problems. Crystals are often used as Good Luck Charms in an effort to attract good luck into a person’s life, whether they want to find a job, attract a lover, or win money gambling.
A crystal is actually a solid formed by the solidification of chemicals, has a regularly repeating internal arrangement of atoms and molecules, and is bounded by external plane faces. Crystal particles form a variety of geometrical shapes due to their internal compressions. Crystals have nice aesthetic properties that often make them attractive and ideal for being used in making jewelry. Crystals also have some physical properties that make them important to the electronics and optical industries. These days, you can find that crystals are being used in many types of modern technology.
There is no scientific evidence that crystals and other gems have magical healing and mystical paranormal powers, however there are millions of people around the world who believe that crystals can heal or help people with different situations. These beliefs continue among occultists, New Age healers, and other practitioners, even though they may only be based on testimonials, the placebo effect, selective thinking, wishful thinking, sympathetic magic, and communal reinforcement. Although there is no scientific evidence that crystals are conduits of magical energies useful for healing, protection, or telling the future, there are many people who “swear by them.” When someone wants to accomplish this or that, and they want to try something magical or mystical, there’s nothing wrong with attempting to use a crystal. If it works, then that’s great, and if it doesn’t, they will probably be no worse off than they were before they tried.
