Do crystals really have healing powers?

As Einstein showed us, light and matter are just aspects of the same thing. Matter is frozen light; and light is matter on the move. All matter is made up of energetic pulses, the chair you're sitting on, the pen you're writing with, the plant beside you, the earth beneath your feet and the body you reside within all carry their own particular vibration. This is fundamental and important to remember when tuning into the conversation regarding crystals and their energetic influence.

Crystals come in many different shapes and sizes, and different crystals carry their own energetic signature. It's easy to observe the spiritual community at large and conclude that gemstones have "healing powers". But what's really going on here ? From my journey of working with a multitude of different minerals and connecting intimately with them through the past several years, i've found that subtle energetic shifts can be felt and sensed between different gemstones. One of my many perspectives on life is that we are in collaboration with our inner world and outer world; and that relationship effects peoples personalities (personal realities) based on their level of connection. Our mind is a very powerful force; it has the ability to alter our world and our focus & intention influence this personal reality as well. Why is it that one person can hold a rough piece of rose quartz and feel absolutely "nothing" while another person can hold the same piece of rose quartz and have an emotional response, and another person feel a physical sensation and notice their hand tingling. It is the same crystal; yet there are various experiences at play. This seems to say more about the individuals journey than anything else. Is this a placebo effect ? Is this all in our minds? Is it really possible to utilize the power of gemstones to channel energy and direct it with intention towards areas we seek healing? All of these are possible realities.
