Many of us know of the benefits of crystal healing in humans. In fact, crystal healing has become increasingly popular due its natural healing effects.
As holistic and natural approaches to healing have become preferable today, most of us are looking to alternative, natural healing methods and crystals are another source to offer such benefits.
What is crystal healing?
Crystals are known to help radiate positive energy to a specific source. There are many different types of crystals, each having a specific healing ability for the body, mind and soul. Crystals are known to promote good, positive energy and get rid of the negative energy of a person’s mind and body which can then aid to create both physical and emotional benefits.
Crystals have been around for thousands of years and are known as an ancient type of medicine that were founded from philosophies borrowed from Buddhism and Hinduism.
The best and most important benefits of crystals, however, can only be accomplished by having an open mind to the energy source they might create. If you are skeptical, it is thought that the negative energy will reduce the positive effects of the specific crystals.
Can crystal healing help dogs?
Crystal healing is not only beneficial to humans, but the principles and healing powers can also be applied to dogs.
Crystals for dogs are especially effective for rescues that tend to be more fearful and stressed. The crystals help to calm and relax scared or untrusting pups.
Many dog owners have seen their dogs become more relaxed, friendlier and even more open to training by merely either wearing crystals or having them in their home.
By placing crystals in your home, it can help both you and your dog to reduce stress, fear, energize your dog’s body, balance his emotions and even clear some blockages.
How can you use crystals for dogs?
There are many ways to use crystals for dogs. You can see if your dog will wear the crystal and attach it to his or her collar.
You can also place a crystal or stone on or near your dog’s crate, under your dog’s bed or even on a sunny window sill.
Another method is to see which crystal your dog prefers by placing several different types of crystals on the floor and let your dog investigate. See which crystal your dog favors and then use that crystal for your dog’s healing.
You can tell if your dog is having a positive reaction to the crystal if your pup becomes more relaxed and calmer.
Which crystals are best for your dog?
Your dog needs to feel comfortable around the crystal and a healing practitioner can help you decide which crystals might work best for your dogs.
Some of the popular choices for dogs are the following:
Rose quartz crystals– helps to balance a dog’s emotions and works well for fearful or nervous dogs who seem to be stressed or are alone for much of the day.
Amethyst crystals – best for dogs with health issues such as any illness, skin condition, arthritis or any of the effects of old age.
Clear quartz crystals – helps with aggressive behavior and excessive barking.
Each dog will take to different crystals so you can see which one works best for your dog.
If your dog has a serious health condition, however, first consult your veterinarian for their recommendation for treatment.
The good news is that if you want to see if your dog responds positively to crystals, you can be assured that the crystals won’t have any negative or harmful effects and hopefully many positive ones.
