My Crystal Healing Journey: Supplemental Pain Management with Conventional Treatment Log 9-19-21
Hi Crystal Friends,
I came up with a way to do crystal healing efficiently and more comfortably. I've set the Crystals into ring jewelry. Read on to see how I've helped myself heal.
I use Astrology combined with Crystals to help myself heal my mind, body, and spirit.
It all starts with my Astrology Placement in the House and then the Sign and Planet are looked at to determine what and how things need to work so I'm not stressed out about my creative expression all the time. Here are some examples of what I'm done so far in terms of how I make the rings, what crystals I use, and the materials I use to make the rings. I will also tell you about how the materials affect the focus of the crystal healing. Here I go!
Recently, two months ago, I was only taking a Mood Stabilizer for my Bipolar Disorder Treatment. I tried a new anti-psychotic and that caused damage to my brain and body so I had to stop taking it. I thought perhaps my brain was healed sufficiently since I had been on medication for my Mental Illness for 15 years. I never quit them. However, the mood stabalizers weren't enough.
I was stressed out from going online all the time. I kept internalizing the world's problems and my friends' problems. I couldn't help anyone and instead just felt like I was taking the heat for things I didn't personally do wrong. Then there were people I disagreed with whole-heartedly on how life is meant to be lived and I flipped. I flipped because I hated my life. I was unsatisfied with it. I wasn't suicidal, but I felt like I had nothing to offer the world anymore but chanelling and fighting people online over mental illness jokes.
I had a melt down in front of my parents. I was angry about feeling like I'm holding down the fort while others go about their lives doing things I've only dreamed of. I wasn't happy with where I was at. I needed to go somewhere that I could break down and break through again like I did 15 years ago. Except this time I actually went to a mental hospital. The last psychotic break I had I was sent home with a pill to take and given outpatient visits to a psychiatrist. Not this time. This time I was manic enough that there was no way I could just take a pill at home and become normal again. I needed more intense treatment.
I was in the mental facility for 5 days. I didn't have my glasses. I can see clearly two feet ahead so I was fine there. I met people of different backgrounds. We all had Bipolar Disorder. I was in the loud ward, not the quiet one. That's how manic I was. When I arrived at the hospital, I had hallucinations. I was able to sleep though. I needed it. The next night I was given antipsychotic meds. The one's I used to take before I took the one's that rewired my brain. I was relieved to have the medicine for my mental illness needs. But the medicine has physical side effects such as weight gain. I have diabetes and high cholesterol as a result of taking it for 15 years. I wasn't happy about that, but I was glad to be more calm.
During my manic state I was irritable. I have an article on here about how I liked being on the mood stabilizers only. I thought I was Bipolar 2 before I ever got diagnosed with Bipolar 1. The thing is, before I got diagnosed I had two moods. Irritable and Happy. Rarely did I have depression. I only got depression when I started talking with people online 15 years ago. They were a different group of people then who I meet now a days. They were some of the worst people I ever met and I got cut from their group in a cold way. It took at least five years to stop having flash backs about my interactions with them.
This time at the mental hospital, I felt like people understood me and I understood them. I also felt like for the first time in a long time, people who cared for me were giving to me with no conditions attached. I was receiving the help I needed just because I needed the help. All I had to do was ask for help. They gave me meds and I was able to go outside with the group there to play in the courtyard. I also was able to color a black and white coloring page the whole time I was there over the 5 days. There was only 40 minutes for the sessions and I finished in time. I still have it.
There were people I met that I haven't forgotten. I probably never will forget them. I tried to contact a few with their phone numbers but some went no where, and some never got back to me. The people were also in healing at the time so it's possible they are in a different state of mind since they met me.
Now that I've told you all this, I will tell you about why I got into Crystals to help me heal. I did so because I currently take medicine that causes me health problems. Currently there are no other medicines I can take for my mental illness. Now it looks like all of the new medicines have an antidepressant component to them. My medicine cocktail used to contain an antidepressant. Taking antidepressants is bad for me because they make me more manic. When I was on an antipsychotic I tried earlier this year it made me manic. I talked to myself out loud all day. I could barely sleep. It was hard to walk or do exercise. If I ate certain things I couldn't breathe right. It was terrible. But I wasn't sure what to do.
The current antipsychotic I'm on isn't perfect, but without the antidepressant it works much better for me. I realize now that the antidepressant was the problem.
I am manic most of the year. My depression usually happens sometime before a menstrual cycle. And sometimes I don't get that, I get more manic. I've been manic most of my life since I first got my period. I still believe there is a Bipolar related to my period. Perhaps it's more to moon cycles though.
Because I take medicine that causes health problems I need something to supplement my treatment. The crystals have energy in them. I can charge them with my body and use them to help my body, to help self-diagnose issues. I still take my medicine and always will unless a new treatment comes along through conventional medicine.
So I have Bipolar 1, Mania and Depression with Psychotic episodes. I lose touch with reality if I don't take my medicine for my mental illness. When I lose touch with reality, I am in pain because I know I'm not meant to be going insane. I'm meant to be calm and feel better as often as I can.
I used to make jewelry as a business. I made pretty jewelry. People bought it. I never sold enough of it. It is a lot of work to make any jewelry piece and I wasn't receiving a return on investment in materials or in fufillment.
I've done jewelry off and on for years and then I realized if I make jewelry, I can transport the crystals to whatever area of my body I want. I don't have to balance them on my body. I make rings. I put the ring on my hand and place my hand on the part of the body I need to diagnose.
I use Astrology to determine the finger I put the ring on as well as the crystal I use in the ring. I use the signs element, fire, water, air, or earth to determine where to put the ring. Then I choose a crystal for the ring based on Planetary placement in the sign and house that will help me diagnose my problem.
My first one was the Saturn placement in Virgo in my third house. I have a system I use to correspond houses with the body and chakra areas, or what I call energy centers. For me the third house rules the throat, shoulders, arms, and hands. I feel like those areas were where my stress was. Virgo to me represents the stomach. So I realized that my words or lack of words caused me stomach problems. And it also led to constipation. Saturn rules Capricorn and Capricorn rules waste elimination from the body and the root chakra. I felt like I figured it out.
How I did it was by turning the ring inward and using my dominant hand to apply the crystal energy. The crystal is encased in glass beads. So it's like a slow radiant energy that is applied to the stomach. I felt some pain before I applied the crystal. Tiger's Eye is the Crystal. I applied pressure with the crystal and I felt more pain, a dull ache. I sat with a stomach ache for 15 minutes and I thought about all the stress that I was under. So much had to do with holding back and not being able to speak to the people I want to speak to most.
Once I moved my hand away from my stomach, I sat and spoke with my Spirit Guides. I told them my findings. I think people underestimate how much stress is a factor in physical pain. I know I did. I still do, but am more aware of it now. The same night I felt like I would eliminate the waste from my body, it happened when I woke up in the morning. I hadn't eliminated waste from my body in 4 days. Constipation is another side effect of my antipsychotic. Also I've had problems with constipation since I was young.
I consulted with Spirit and they gave me medical advice. I won't share it here because what works for me may not work for you. The important thing is that I share how I was able to heal my constipation issues with intention through crystal work.
Now I'm working on rings in twelve stone choices, one for each sign. And I've got three ring options. I'll explain more about my jewelry in the upcoming weeks.
I hope I have inspired you to use crystals to help you heal. You don't have to have the crystals set in jewelry to help you heal, but I feel it's less awkward and more direct when I use my crystal rings.
Thanks for reading.
