Maintaining Balance and Harmony with Crystals

Gemstones and crystals have traditionally been used in a variety of ways to restore balance and harmony to both the physical and spiritual elements of our lives.  The practices of meditation, feng shui , and crystal healing all seek to correct imbalances and restore natural harmony.  Understanding each of these practices will help you find your path.

The universal truth is that you must balance the elements of yin and yang in all aspects of your life to achieve happiness, harmony, and health.Yin and yang are the two dynamics of the Universal Life Force, inseparable, interacting, and opposites. Neither is complete without the other. Each is a part of the other. Each depends for its existence on the other.

Yin & Yan

A coin has two sides, yet without one side the idea of the other side is meaningless. The sky is only meaningful is there is an earth. Masculine is meaningless with the feminine. But there is really no boundary between the sides of a coin, or between the earth and sky or between masculine and feminine. They are separate, yet intertwined. Each defined, yet only in the terms of the other.Our lives must have both energy dynamics and have them in balance.

While we can be either male or female, we cannot have only Yin or Yang energy. Women need activity, warmth, and the yang energy to make their way in the world. Men need to relax, recharge, and reflect. In our daily lives we need activity, and we need rests. We need heat and cooling, We need quiet and we need action. We need the seasons, and we need the dynamics of the flowing, balancing Life Force to keep us sane, healthy, and happy. Harmony is Yin and Yang in balance.
