I have been working with crystals for over 15 years now. Primarily I used them for self healing and personal development through meditation and placing on the body or wearing it as jewellery. I never had any plans to train as a healer as I didn't want to get into the nitty gritty science stuff. All I am interested in is the healing work it does.
Then a couple of years ago a friend suggested I do her intuitive crystal course. At that point I didn't realise just how much further I world was being opened up. Suddenly, my intuitive working took on a whole new dimension. As I worked through my case studies I found I was using initially just crystals and on different people they worked in different ways. I found myself expanding my collection of crystals, as not only was I treating others but at the same I was treating myself. I was layouts on myself. This lead to increased spiritual and personal development. As I worked on different levels of my personal journey my crystal collection expanded. Then just when I thought I was done with the ones I had bought I have new ways of working on myself with them.
Crystals are complimentary not only with the current conventional medicine but even more so with traditional spirit healing work. This means I use all the different energy systems for healing and I will combine crystals as and when required with other techniques. It could be with a reiki treatment, just a crystal healing, a meditation crystal healing, regression healing, drum healing, mantra healing, chakra healing, and various ways of working in shamanism.
Healing work I have found does not allow for exclusivity. Healing is a holistic approach. Healing always starts with yourself. Crystals are a fantastic way to heal and work through different layers of your own healing.
The best part came when I connected to the Crystal Guardian. This led me to a whole new realm of teaching and learning to choose and heal with crystals. We all have a crystal guide and it's a great way to connect to your guide to choose crystals for your own personal healing and development.
I now can't imagine a life without my crystal friends. Crystals all have spirits within them and they will speak to us and guide us to how we need to work with them. I truly recommend using crystals for healing.
