Balancing the 5 Elements with Crystals

There are many wonderful Traditional Chinese Healing modalities. Amongst them, we have Feng Shui, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Qigong, and Acupuncture. All of these modalities work to create a balancing of the 5 Elements (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal) within the body and create a healthy Qi (Chi) flow throughout the meridians.

There are many ways you can start to balance meridian points, the most widely known is through acupuncture, but today, I would love to share how you can use crystals instead of the thin acupuncture needles.

Let’s dive into the meridians and elements before we start talking about which crystals will aid you in your journey! Remember, Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that you can trace disease, pain, and stress back to disharmony of the elemental cycles or yin and yang balance.

The 5 Elements In The Body:

Five Chinese Elements
  • The Water Element
    The health of the water element is displayed through our kidneys, urinary bladder, ears, and bones. The disharmony emotion of the water element is fear; fear can cause disharmony amongst the water organs.

  • The Wood Element
    The health of the wood element is displayed through the liver, gallbladder, eyes, and tendons. The disharmony emotion of the wood element is anger; anger can cause disharmony amongst the wood organs.

  • The Fire Element
    The health of the fire element is displayed through the heart, pericardium, triple burner, small intestine, tongue and blood vessels. The emotions of disharmony in the fire element are panic and anxiety.

  • The Earth Element
    The health of the earth element is represented through the stomach, spleen, mouth, and muscles. Earth’s disharmony emotion is worry, too much worry can lead to imbalance of the earth organs.

  • The Metal Element
    The health of the metal element is seen through the lungs, large intestine, nose, skin, and hair. The disharmony emotion of metal is grief, whether that grief be prolonged or suppressed.

We can also see the Elements in nature, food, personalities and as stated above, the emotions. Experiencing prolonged periods of any of the above emotions in their rawest form can throw off the elements within the body. If left in a state of disharmony, it will, in turn, start to create disharmony amongst the other organs leading to disease emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

Crystals and Meridians

Thankfully, we can use crystal allies to help us start to create healing and balance within the body. We can simply place certain crystals on the meridians on the body to mimic the effect of acupuncture needles.

Of course, any healing modality will take a few healing sessions to create a positive effect, especially if the element you want to work on has been severely imbalanced for an extended period of time.
