Hello, within my community and circle of friends I have noticed a lot of people who are taking a liking to crystals and hands on healing techniques, such as Reiki healing. I'm not sure how familiar you are with these sort of things but I do come across psuedo spritualists all the time who claim to see auras and who claim to heal people by means of crystal healing or hands on healing techniques and so on. This all seems a little phony to me. I mean I understand that there has to be some people who are more psychic than others and may actually see other peoples auras. So my question is are these people delusional? They could be creating this whole fantasy of possessing these qualities and just believing they work instead of them actually doing anything at all. As well, do crystals and stones posses any qualities or powers to heal or change energies of some sort?
