The Ancient Greek philosopher Plato said, "...crystals are formed from the stars and the planets."
Australian Aboriginals and Native North Americans say that crystals are the bones of Mother Earth. Hope
The crystals we use for healing purposes and enjoy looking at and touching today were created in the
womb of Mother Earth over millions of years from water, earth, wind and volcanic fire. Crystals carry the
life force and the healing powers of the earth, the sun, the sky, the moon and the planets. Hope heals.
Ancient Egyptians, the Chinese and people in India began recording the healing properties of crystals
more than 3,500 years ago, among other indigenous people(s). For 1000's and 1000's of years, crystals
have been a part of the folklore and the folk wisdom of men, women and children. If you give a bag of
crystals to a child, he or she will empathically (sympathetically) choose the crystal(s) which will relieve a
headache or a sore throat, and, to make themselves feel better. Hope heals.
Anyone can become a crystal healer and an expert with the use of crystals for healing purposes if they
trust in their powers of intuition (the ability to see, to feel and to make decisions based upon what the
crystals are telling the person or the group of people using crystals for healing purposes). When you use
crystals and do crystal work you can access the Universal Wellspring of crystal wisdom and crystal
knowledge that has been passed on by your genetic heritage. If you allow your crystal(s) to speak to your
heart and to your work, the healing energies of the crystal(s) will bring out your own healing abilities, give
you peace of mind, body, soul, spirit and astral bodies and give you spiritual harmony in your life: the
people, the animals, the places, the things and the Mother Earth and the Father Sky you surround your self
with these days. Hope heals.
How to Choose Crystals for Healing Purposes
To begin your healing practices you should choose 2 or 3 round or oval crystals the size of a large coin
for your own healing and for your own spiritual development. If you already own personal crystals, then
you can choose them as all crystals have personal magic and energy. If you do not have any crystals or
stones for healing purposes, then you can buy or you can find a small piece of tumbled or rough amethyst,
citrine and clear quartz or turquoise to start the process of your healing journey. Hope heals.
When to Add Crystals to Your Collection
Build up your crystal collection gradually by collecting all of the main colors of the chakras (13 of them)
for healing, divination and healing rituals. You can have a separate set of crystals for healing purposes or
you can use the ones you use for your own healing purposes for all of the crystal work you do. The crystals
have become powerful and personalized, i.e., you are growing attached to them. You can also buy a crystal
sphere [Crystal Spheres are characterized by their shape. There are geodes which have inclusions in them
and they are easier to read psychically and a whole lot less costly to buy. Some crystal spheres have a
double refraction, where light waves bend and double. Crystal spheres come in different types, shapes,
sizes and colors. Symbolically, crystal spheres have the same associations as the kind of crystal that it was
formed from. And, all crystal spheres operate through the Crown Chakra in a person’s head. Crystal
Spheres have been used from the earliest of times as tools of personal wisdom. If you hold a crystal sphere
up to reflect the sun, the moon or a candle makes you aware of your inner clairvoyant ability then it will
help you to gain access to the cosmic pool of knowledge of all times and of all places. Or, a geode - A
geode is a hollow stone shaped like a ball with a crystal center. The colors of geodes can be grey, brown or
black with differently colored crystals inside of them.] You should store your crystals and larger pieces in
a place which is magical and which is safe for you. Hope heals.
Clear crystal pendulums can be used to cleanse and charge other crystals, to make an instant intuitive
decision, to trace your inner bodily psychic energy pathways, to unblock stagnant chakras (the psychic
energy centers in your body), and, to help heal a whole host of psychological, mental, spiritual, and
physical problems (maladies – 1. a dis- Ease or a dis- Order of the animal or the human body. 2. an
unwholesome or a discorded condition. Hope heals.
A pendulum can be used to find lost objects, to identify ley energies - psychic power lines or grids in the
Earth - and to pick up on ghostly presences in your life or other people's lives. If a pendulum swings
spontaneously and positively it will say, "Yes" to questions asked of it. The crystal pendulum will also tell
you that the energy is flowing freely inside of you and that you are on the right track if you are following a
trail or trying to reach a conclusion. If the pendulum swings clockwise in a circle, then this is an indication
of the happy and the uplifting times, a ‘positive response’ in your life when you are holding it on a string or
holding it on a chain. If the pendulum swings spontaneously and negatively counterclockwise then this will
say, "No" to questions asked of it when you think of sad and downward spiraling times in your life. This
would be called a ‘negative response’ to a question, anticlockwise. The use of a pendulum can tell you of a
blockage in your body, tell you that you have moved away from the correct path physically or that you are
on the wrong track because energy is not flowing freely inside of you but has become stagnant and tells you
that you are on the wrong track if you are following a trail or trying to reach a conclusion. Hope heals.
If you would like to, you can deliberately circle your pendulum clockwise over your body to re- ener-
gize your body. When you circle it anticlockwise, the pendulum will unblock a stagnant area of your body
or help to remove old pain and old sickness, or recent pain. Hope heals.
As an example, an amethyst or a rose quartz crystal will cleanse gentler crystals and both are good for
clearing negative earth energies in and outside of the home. Hope heals.
There are many different kinds of crystals which will effectively cleanse and energize the chakras of
your body. Each chakra in your body is associated with an area of the body and an emotional state.
Chakras are considered to be swirling psychic energy centers in the human body, interconnecting with
1000's of points of tiny energy channels in the human body. If you apply a crystal a few inches above a
chakra point, and rotate it in an anticlockwise direction, it will help you to unblock, cleanse and calm the
energy of that chakra. Also, if you allow the crystal to rotate in a clockwise direction this will help to
create more energy in your body, to stir up energy and to excite energy in that chakra. Let your hand and
your intuition take over. You can also lie down with the appropriate chakra crystal lying on the ‘chakra
point’ to help re- balance the whole body. For a list of crystals and chakras and how crystals influence
these chakras, see Chapter 42. Color. Hope heals.
Each color in a crystal contains qualities and strengths which are amplified by the crystal. These colors
get absorbed by the skin and the optic nerves of the human body by psychically being assimilated into the
human energy field (aura). After that, these colors affect the 13 chakras and go where they are needed by
the human body. Hope Heals.
Crystals & Color
Crystals are a great gift idea and most people enjoy receiving them as gifts (presents). Crystals come in
many different forms, shapes, sizes and colors. Everyone can benefit from their use and their healing
energy. Crystals can be worn as jewelry, carried in a shirt or a pants pocket or placed in the home or in the
office environment to help bring positive energy and to clear negative residue energy left behind. Many
stones are available as beads which have been incorporated into wonderful and expensive and not so
expensive gemstone jewelry. When worn as jewelry, crystal energy is felt throughout the entire day and
night (if a person leaves the jewelry on while sleeping). As a word of caution, it is not recommended that a
person shower with their gemstones on as some of the gemstones may be affected by the water and the soap
used. A person can experiment with the different kinds of energy that the stones possess and to let the
crystals guide them in using them for their highest good and their greatest benefit(s). Hope heals.
Pure Quartz stones are considered useful for protection, calm, harmony, thought amplification, pure

this produces more income for the merchant. Citrine diminishes self-destructive tendencies, raises self-
esteem, lighthearted cheerfulness and brings hope. Citrine is the perfect stone for those people who have a
lot of ideas but who cannot seem to make them happen in real life. Citrine helps a person to manifest ideas
so that they can make them happen. Hope heals.

Garnet is the modern birthstone for January and is known as the "Stone of Health" and is said to rid the
body of negative energies and to transmute these energies to a helping state. Garnet was known in the past
as a "Stone of Commitment" to purpose, to other people, and to one’s self. The loving power of garnet
tends to reflect the attributes of devotion, bringing the love of other people to expressions of warmth and

around the physical body and aligning the emotional and the intellectual bodies with the perfection of all
that is. Hope heals.

There are two books which a person who is interested in crystals and crystal healing may buy and read,
take out of the library, or, borrow from a good friend: ‘The Crystal Bible’ by Judy Hall. This book
contains photos, too. ‘Love is in the Earth’ by Melody. This is a classic book for those people who are or
who want to study crystals. There are other books a person can buy or loan out for use to better understand
crystals and their healing properties, both physical and technical. Hope heals.
THE HUMAN AURA
The human aura is a flowing channel of a colored rainbow. It extends about an arm's length all around
the human body and the head as an ellipse (a flattened circle). The human aura filters out pollution and
negative emotions and becomes discolored or dull and in need of cleansing and re-energizing at least once a
week. Hope heals.
How to See Your Aura
A person who would like to check the health of their aura will want to stand in front of the mirror or if
they are going to read another person, to frame that person or that animal in light. The person reading for
an aura will want to focus on the person or the animal's head where their aura is the most visible, or the
whole body. You are encouraged to stare very hard, to close your eyes, to open and to close them up again,
to blink and to look again and then you will see in your mind's vision or externally, all of the rainbow
colors. As you repeat this practice over and over again, you will eventually learn to see areas of darkness
or any missing colors from what everyone should have which is a rainbow of colors surrounding them.
If you are in doubt as to which color to use to see an aura or for a person's or an animal's general em-
powerment, you can arrange a crystal of each color (include the colors gray, brown and pink as these are
also a part of an aura) in a circle on a table. Then pass a pendulum clockwise a couple of inches above
each crystal very slowly and your pendulum will vibrate and pull down over one or more of the crystal
colors telling you what you need to use to see a person's or an animal's aura. Hope heals.
Aura Color Cleansing
To cleanse your aura, find the edge of your aura by holding both palms over your head a couple of inches
away and move your hands outwards until you find resistance: this is your auric field. If you spiral the
crystals you have chosen to work with (or, one in each hand simultaneously if you are working with two
crystals) over your head or the head of your patient, anti-clockwise to cleanse the aura and then clockwise
to re-energize your aura, this will help to re-open it and to make your aura feel cleansed. Hope heals.
How to Absorb Crystal Colors
1. Carry a crystal or crystals in a pouch or wear them as jewelry to infuse your body slowly and
continuously with your chosen colors. Hope heals.
2. Sleep with your stones or crystals under your pillow. You will have better dreams at night or, even,
during the day. Hope heals.
3. Soak your stones or your crystals in a cup of still mineral water for 8 hours and drink the water.
Splash the water on your pulse points or add it to the water that you bathe in. Hope heals.
4. Add colored crystals or stones to your bathwater to infuse their energy into the bathwater. Hope
5. Hold your crystals or your stones in your cupped hands and breathe in gently the light of the crystals
through your nose. Exhale the visualized dark light as a sigh through your mouth. Hope heals.
6. One time a week, by candlelight or in natural sunlight or moonlight, sit inside a circle of crystals or
stones, one of each color to represent your chakras. Visualize their energy and their colors entering your
aura. This will encourage your body to absorb the colors in which your body is deficient. Hope heals.
Crystals and How They Are Used For Healing Purposes
Crystals act as transmitters and amplifiers of healing energy in a person whether a person is present or
absent and whether or not the healing power of a crystal and the person using the crystals for healing
purposes directs them through their hands, their voice or their mind or all 3 of these channels together.
Almost every person who does any healing work asks a higher source for help, whether it be your higher
source, God, Goddess, Godhead, a healing deity, an angel or an arch angel, a spirit, a spirit guide or a wise
kind, beneficent and healing light from the Universe of Healing, Love and Light, or all of the above men-
tioned healing spiritual energies. Hope heals.
During the beginning, the middle and the end of your healing service (session), you should hold your
crystals in your hands, raise them to your heart and ask them in your own words that the healing energy you
are sending is for the highest good of all people, places, things and animals involved and that it comes in a
form which is right for you and for the patient. Request that protection and blessings for you and the
patient be done in the name of your chosen higher power, that this be a said thing, vocally or voiced
internally. When you are done with your healing service you should thank the source(s) of your healing
powers. Hope heals.
The Correct Kind of Contact during a Crystal Healing for Healing a Person, a Place, a Thing or an
To contact a healing means that the patient is present at the healing session. Some healers and patients
prefer that there be no physical skin contact during a session except between close personal relationships
and close personal friends. This is up to the healer and the patient. Hope heals.
How to Use Your Healing Powers for Healing Purposes
When doing any healing work, make sure you use your intuition and your heart as a guide and allow
your crystals to find their own movements and pathways, one or two inches away from the human body,
a place, a thing or an animal. Hope heals.
Sometimes you want to hold a crystal over the part of the body which is unrelated to the symptoms a
person is describing. You must learn how to listen to the crystals you are using as they are the ultimate
healers of the body, the mind, the soul, the spirit and the astral bodies. Hope heals.
You can move your crystals constantly or you may feel them suddenly pulling down over a particular
spot in the body, maybe, drawing out a tangled knot of energy which rises as a strand of pale gray mist to
the sky, to be transformed into a sunbeam or into starlight. There are so many different kinds of methods
of drawing down energy from the sky or from Mother Earth, to use, and, this all depends upon a person and
how much they use crystals physically and psychically for healing purposes. Hope heals.
Pairs of Crystals and Their Use
When you use pairs of crystals, one with which to draw out pain or to help remove blockages of energy
and one with which to infuse a person, a place, a thing or an animal with healing light and energy, you can
use your crystal palms (round flat stones which you hold in your hands) or ordinary round tumbled stones
for healing. The following listed pairs of crystals are good combinations to use for healing:
1. Clear crystal quartz and amethyst: These kinds of crystals are good for all around, all purpose
healing. These crystals are a good routine to use for cleansing and re-energizing the human body. Hope
2. Turquoise and Rose Quartz: These kinds of stones help a person, a place, a thing or an animal
who has an overloaded body or to help a person, a place, a thing or an animal constantly under pressure.
3. Amber and Blue Coral or Blue Chalcedony: These kinds of stones are good for a deep healing
and for helping to restore the natural immunity of a collapsed immune system. Hope heals.
4. Purple Fluorite and Nephrite or Jadeite: This is a great combination for healing over a long
period of time, for chronic conditions or for those conditions which are difficult to diagnose and to treat.
5. Red Jasper and Celestine or Angelite: These kinds of stones are great for balancing, strengthening
and re-harmonizing the body, the mind, the spirit, the soul and the astral bodies. Hope heals.
6. Tiger's Eye and Banded Agate: You can use these kinds of stones to soothe and to empower a very
nervous or a very emotional patient(s) or those people, places, things or animals caught up in crisis situa-
tions. Hope heals.
7. Blue Lace Agate and Pink Manganocalcite: These combinations of stones are great for healing the
very young, the very old or for people who are extremely ill or in intense pain. Hope heals.
How to Create a Healing Circuit with Paired Crystals
Try this kind of healing with a pointed quartz crystal and a pointed amethyst crystal. Hope heals.
1. When healing your self, sit on a floor and hold the receptive crystal to the sole of the foot on the power
side of your body (the same one as the hand you write with regularly) and then use the power crystal to
point to and to touch the other sole of your foot. Hope heals.
2. Visualize (imagine) warm, glowing, healing liquid light passing up through the power crystal and
spiraling inside and around your whole body, finding the natural psychic pathways and energy swirling
around all of your chakras. Hope heals.
3. When doing this kind of healing, you don't need to do anything but if you wish to you can close your
eyes and you will be rewarded by the visions of glowing channels within your body. Hope heals.
4. See the power of the crystals and the power created inside your body, especially, leaving with the
receptive crystals and re-entering your body, transformed as it passes through the power crystals you use
for healing your self. When these energies have slowed down sufficiently, the healing is complete. Hope
When doing this kind of healing work for other people, places, animals or things, you can create a heal-
ing circuit by holding the crystals in your hands against the soles of their feet, or, if they prefer, the centers
of the palms of their hands. Hope heals.
How to Take Part In Absent Healing
You can use a large crystal as a focal point, a quartz crystal or an amethyst sphere, a geode or an
unpolished rose quartz crystal or a calcite stone of any size or shape. Hope heals.
When possible work by candlelight. Hope heals.
You are able to send healing crystal light to people who are not present, to animals, war or famine torn
regions of the planet, the seas, the skies, and the melting ice caps or to the whole planet. Hope heals.
You can work with a group of people or by your self, holding the crystal(s) in your hands, or with a
group of healers or friends who are willing and who are able to pass the large crystals around in a circle as
each person empowers them with special wishes or prayers. Hope heals.
You can name the person, the place, the thing or the animals and say a prayer or a healing mantra (a
continuous rhythmic chant) for sending healing into the crystals you are using for healing. Breathe in the
light of the crystal, exhale the darkness of the crystal. Hope heals.
When you are filled with enough light, send the light as a continuous in and out breath to your subject.
Make sure you remember to keep repeating your chosen healing prayers or mantras in your mind. Hope
You can leave the candle to burn through and to restore the energy of the crystals you have used for
healing purposes. Hope heals.
You can wish to have a healing book in your special crystal place, to record names of anyone who is sick
and in need of healing, prayers and chants. And, you can send that person light through the crystal every
week, even when they are not present. Hope heals.
Crystal divination is named after a practice of consulting the divus or the diva, a god or a goddess.
Divination helps a person or persons to figure out what the right course of action is concerning a particular
problem in life or what might be the result of an event which happens in someone's life. Divination
involves selecting at random, symbols like tarot cards, Viking or Anglo Saxon rune staves or crystals, and,
through these divus or divas, information is known and gathered for use. In these modern days, with
divination, one can consult with the god or goddess inside, that wise part of our self (selves) which is not
bound by the limitations of time or physicality. This is a part of ourselves which contains the universal
store of knowledge and it is not bound by the facts which are known to our conscious mind but more, the
unconscious mind which is also active inside of us. Hope heals.
When selecting crystals or symbols occur through the process of psychokinesis, the mind can move
matter, particularly, our hands, to select one crystal rather than another crystal to answer our pressing
questions of the moment. Crystals are a great way to practice the art of divination as the colors and the
crystal types we use contain core meanings. When a person holds a crystal that has been selected uncon-
sciously, the information from the crystal will flood the mind. The knowledge which is transmitted through
our fingertips in the form of words, sensations of hot or cold, feelings of reassurance or of sudden doubt
about a planned course of action (to do it, not to do it, or to stay the course of action we have chosen) as
well as, rich visual images flooding our minds. Hope heals.
How to Create a Crystal Divination Set
Following this heading there is a list of crystals which are suggested for the art of divination. You may
use as few as 11 of the listed crystals, one for each of the main chakras and their respective colors: white,
red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, gray and black. Hope heals.
You should choose crystals of similar size, shape and smoothness; round or oval tumbled stones about
the size of a medium coin are ideal. However, if they are not all the same size, do not worry about this.
Just pick the crystals your unconscious mind attracts to and that your hands pick up without thinking about
the process. Hope heals.
You can add to the crystals you have chosen at any time during the process and you can also double your
original set so that you have a vibrant shade of each color which would show you a more active response
and a softer, muted hue. Hope heals.
You can use as many or as few crystals as you have, from 11 to 200 or more, as your selection of crystals
is made by your unconscious wisdom no matter how few or how many stones you use for healing purposes.
As an example, a person who needed a practical, down-to-earth approach to picking crystals for divination
picked only matt brown stones from the more than 150 crystals they had in their divinatory bag. Hope
Keep your crystals you use for divination in a drawstring bag (or place them in your divination bag prior
to divination). Hope heals.
You can use your crystals to read for your self or for other people. Crystal divination is an excellent way
for creating a psychic dialogue between the questioner and the reader of the crystals, even if that person has
never used crystals to do a reading ever before. Hope heals.
Ask a question or let your subject ask a question. Place your power hand (the one your write with) in the
divination bag or ask the questioner (subject) to pick a selection of crystals from the divination bag and
choose 3 crystals, one at a time, which feel right. Do not look into the bag as this distracts you from the
magical process of picking crystals for divination rather than letting your intuition or the subject's intuition
take over. Set your crystals on the table. Hope heals.
When you buy more crystals to divine with and add to your collection, choose up to 6 for the more
important questions that get asked. Hope heals.
Make sure to hold each crystal in turn in the order which feels right, in your cupped hands. Hope heals.
Close your eyes and allow impressions to form in your mind's eye. When reading for somebody else,
ask that person to pick up each crystal first and to say what it makes them feel, before handing it to you to
interpret. Hope heals.
You can use your intuition at first. The meanings of color and kind are basic guidelines and these will
help you to give structure and meaning to the messages you give out. Hope heals.
If an answer given is not clear, then tell a story using the images you see from each crystal you pick up
and divine (prophesy) in your hands. Hope heals.
You are also able to select a single crystal every morning to tell you the mood of the day coming and to
help offer you strength to carry through the day. Carry a crystal as a talisman (a charm which brings good
luck and which keeps evil away) in a tiny purse or in a crystal healing bag, or, a pocket of a shirt or pants,
ET. Al. Hope heals.
A DIVINATORY SET OF CRYSTALS
You may use any crystal for divination if it is regular in size (about the size of a medium coin.) You can
choose tumbled crystals which are not brittle and which do not have jagged edges which can scratch the
other crystals in your divinatory bag. You may start with 11 crystals, one for each of the basic colors. As
time presses on, you can add different shades of the basic colors you started with and different stone types.
Whether you use many or a few crystals for divination, the questioner should always intuitively choose the
crystal(s) which will answer a person's questions. Hope heals.

Some of the crystals you work with will work with more than one chakra. The more vibrant crystals will
energize a chakra and the softer ones will gently unblock and calm a person's energy centers. See Chapter
12. The Chakras, and Chapter 42. Color. Where a crystal type is listed, choose your own color which
relates to that chakra color. Hope heals.

Crystal Pendulum Divination
You can use a crystal pendulum for decision making at work or at home. Also, you should choose a
favorite birthstone pendant or a crystal point which you can hold between the thumb and the first finger of
your power hand, the hand you write with. Hope heals.
1. On a piece of paper, you draw a circle and divide it into 4, 6 or 8 segments, according to the number
of options you have, i.e., the amount of crystals you have available for divination. As an alternative
method, you can draw a square, a rectangle or a pyramid and make a grid of boxes, etc. Hope heals.
2. In each segment you have created, write down the different options you have in your life. The
decisions you make can be about your career, a relationship or foods that you suspect may be causing you
allergies. You can even make decisions about holiday destinations or properties you have visited seeking a
new home, ET. Al. Shade in any left over segments you will not be using. Hope heals.
3. Very slowly, move the pendulum over each option in turn, allowing images and words to form freely
in your mind. Hope heals.
4. Then pass the pendulum over each option a 2nd time and this time it will pull down strongly over one
of your options. Hope heals.
5. If the pendulum does not respond to any of the options you have chosen, leave the reading overnight
and your dreams may suggest another path to add to your list. You could also do this whole process over
again in the morning or at a more convenient time to find out if you get the same or a different kind of read-
ing. Hope heals.
HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR MAGICAL SIDE AND YOUR PSYCHIC POWERS
When you use crystals for healing or magical purposes they amplify and transmit your innate psychic
energy. Crystals offer a doorway to the other 9 dimensions and within the depth of the crystal mind and the
mind(s) of the people using them we can travel way beyond the world of materialism and all of its' re-
straints. You can also give your divine energy to your crystals so that they bring prosperity, love and
success to you as you live your daily life. Hope heals.
How to Create a Crystal Place of Healing
When used for healing purposes, crystals can create magic anywhere you take them or that you want to
go. When you create a magical and a special place of healing in your home, workplace, or, your body, you
can use crystals for meditation, contemplation and healing work. Crystals will help you to create an island
of calm and healing in your life which can help you to restore inner harmony after the most harried day you
have lived. Hope heals.
1. To begin with, you will need a small table with a cloth to serve as your altar and some comfortable
seats, or, floor cushions if your altar is near to the ground or floor. Hope heals.
2. On your altar set you should place white candles, an all-purpose incense like sandalwood, lavender or
rose, fresh seasonal flowers, a statue or pictures of your favorite deity or angels. Hope heals.
3. You can display your large, medium or small crystals, spheres, geodes, crystal point formations or
clusters and wands and any of the other unpolished pieces you keep absent for healing purposes. Hope
4. You should keep your healing book open, read a name every day and every night, as well as, from
your weekly rituals. You can send blessings through your crystals. Hope heals.
5. In the center of your healing altar, you can keep a dish of your favorite crystals, through which you
can run your fingers or create patterns with the crystals on the altar, the floor or in a special sand box (use a
large tray and children's sand). Hope heals.
6. Make a crystal grid, mandala (regular circular patterns), labyrinths, medicine wheels or any kinds of
information which intuitively seem to bring power and healing to your life. Touch each crystal in turn and
send blessings or healing to a person, a place, an animal or a thing. Hope heals.
7. When you have the time, you can explore the energies of the individual crystals you now own by
setting the altar with its related incense, relevant candle colors, a dish of herbs, oils and flowers related to
that particular crystal, ET. Al. Hold the crystal(s) and allow impressions to form in your mind's eye from
the crystals. Hope heals.
What is Crystal Magic?
Every crystal, stone and/or mineral which you now own has its strengths. As an example, for bringing
money or luck into your life, simply by carrying crystals associated with money and luck, you are bringing
good energy into your body and this in turn helps you to bring money and luck into your life. Hope heals.
1. You can empower a crystal for any purpose in life by drawing over it in the air, a word or a symbol
for what you want and need in your life while stating the purpose aloud (voicing your opinion to the
Universe) and as a soft and continuous mantra. Hope heals.
2. You can sprinkle a few grains of sea salt over the crystals you have chosen to use for healing
purposes to draw up the power of the Earth, spiral the crystals with smoke from its' associated incense for
the power of air, pass the crystals through the flame of their own colored candles for the power of fire and
shower them with drops of still mineral water for the power of water and at each stage of the healing ritual,
you can repeat the mantra by saying, 'So may it be, the power lies free as I count 3. Three, two, one,
Blessings come.' Hope heals.
How to Make a Charm Bag
You can add the empowered crystals you now own to a charm bag, to a tiny purse or to a drawstring bag
which contains symbols which are related to your wishes. As an example, the crystal's herbs, a gold coin
for wealth, a tiny doll for fertility or a silver heart for love. Carry your charm bag until you fulfill your
desire(s). Hope heals.
HOW TO USE YOUR PSYCHIC POWER
If you or I were just sitting and holding a crystal via candlelight, gazing into the crystal depths, we could
enter a light meditative state in which our innate psychic powers would just come out naturally. When you
look into an in depth crystal book about crystals and their use, you will find the psychic properties of those
crystals listed and how crystals (stones, gems or minerals) best amplify those psychic properties. Very
fascinating stuff, if you are into this kind of crystal magic. Listed in the following paragraphs are the
various ways with which you can work with crystals and their healing properties. Hope heals.
How to Scry with Crystals
When a person scrys with crystals or a candle light, this means that they are trying to envision images in
the reflective surface of the crystals; however, when working with crystals and first getting in touch with
them, we see them in our mind's eye. Hope heals.
1. When you gaze into a large polished crystal, preferably one which has inclusions (marks and nicks),
do it with reflected candlelight that shines into it. Hope heals.
2. You can ask the crystal ball a crystal question and through your eyes, which are half closed or squint-
ed, you can allow images to form as the crystal and the light combine to show you magical shadowy forms.
3. If you find this a hard thing to do, then fill a bowl with water and gently drop crystals into it one at a
time to create ripples in the water. You can surround the bowl with a ring of candles or set the bowl of
crystals in shimmering sunlight or shimmering moonlight. Hope heals.
How to Explore Crystalline Worlds in Your World of Healing
When working on past life exploration and past life issues, you can identify a doorway in a large cloudy
crystal, in candlelight or in intense sunlight or intense moonlight, or both. Hope heals.
1. You can breathe in the crystalline light all around you so that you are within the crystal and you can
walk through hidden doorways. Hope heals.
2. You may find yourself in a wood, beside a river, on a mountain, ET. Al. This will be a place which
is peaceful with or without people around you. You can walk along a pathway which is strewn with
crystals that shimmer in the light. You may see scenes from your past and a person with whom you still
identify with to this day, and this may answer some of your present day questions you still have pressing in
your mind. Let the questions come as they may. You can return to your every day world by counting
slowly down from ten to zero. Hope heals.
3. If you would like to have an out of body experience (astral travel), you can surround a large crystal
with candles and gradually blow them out one by one while picturing the crystal just as bright in your
mind's eye and vision, but getting larger and larger and the steps of the crystal rising up one side, and, down
the other side of the crystal. Hope heals.
4. When it is physically dark and all of the candles have been extinguished, in your mind's eye and
vision, climb the crystal steps higher and higher and feel feather wings sprouting out of your body. As you
reach the top, you can fly or float towards the stars; dive deep into the clear blue ocean water below or you
can follow another crystal staircase inside a huge tree to a mythical land with talking animals and wise
guides (your elders). Hope heals.
5. Whichever route you choose to go, you can again return by counting slowly from ten to zero, or any
number you wish to return to. Hope heals.
Cleansing & Empowering Your Crystals
Cleansing and empowering your crystals is the same thing. When you work with your crystals, for
healing, magical and protective purposes, they naturally become depleted of energy and absorb a person's
negativity when people talk about their sorrow or pain. The crystal actually absorbs that person's pain.
Some crystals do not need cleansing or charging as they are self-cleansing crystals. Cleansing and
empowering your crystals is a great way to make sure that negativity which has penetrated a person's aura
gets dissipated. Hope heals.
When to Cleanse and Re-Charge Your Crystals
1. When you get a new crystal, cleanse it. This removes the impressions from those who have mined,
handled and sold the crystals even if these energies are not negative. Afterwards, you can endow the
crystal(s) with your personal power and the power of the earth, the seas and the skies. Hope heals.
2. Crystals which appear to be dull or feel heavy usually need restoring and resting for a time when
used every day. You should have 2-3 of your favorite kinds of crystals hanging around for use so that they
do not become exhausted of their energy and you can rotate their use, ET. Al. Hope heals.
3. You can cleanse and recharge your healing and divinatory crystals once a week or after an intense or
an emotional work period. Home and workplace crystals, like the ones which protect against technological
pollution or which hold negative earth energies at bay also become depleted of their energy. Hope heals.
4. You should cleanse more than one crystal by placing them in a circle and working over or around the
crystal circle. Hope heals.
Methods of Cleansing Your Crystals
If you buy a good book on crystals there are specific ways that you can charge and re-charge the crystals
according to their unique qualities and they will be listed. But, you can use any of the methods listed
below, unless the entry for that particular crystal mentions that exposing a crystal to sunlight may make it
crack or fade. Hope heals.
How to Use a Crystal Pendulum
1. Hold a clear crystal pendulum over the crystal (delicate shades are best cleansed with an amethyst or
a rose quartz pendulum). Hope heals.
2. Pass the pendulum over your crystal 9 times in slow anti-clockwise circles to take away any nega-
tivity. Hope heals.
3. Dip your pendulum into a bowl of cold water 9 times and shake it dry. Hope heals.
4. Lastly, move your pendulum 9 times in a clockwise direction over your crystal to empower it. Hope
How to Cleanse and Empower Your Crystals with Salt & Water
1. Add 3 pinches of unprocessed – in a plastic bag or a paper bag, sea salt to a small bowl of still
mineral water and stir it clockwise with a clear, pointed crystal. Hope heals.
2. Sprinkle 3 circles of sea salt water around your crystal, moving outwards as you sprinkle. As you do
this, ask a blessing from a diety, an angel or the benign light of the universe to remove all darkness from
your crystal and to infuse the crystal(s) with healing light. Hope heals.
How to Use Earth Energies
1. Visit a place where Earth energies are very strong: a standing stone, a stone-circle, a long barrow, a
burial mound or a fairy hill, an old stone medicine wheel or a sacred rock. When possible, go right after
dawn. Hope heals.
2. Set your crystal or crystals on top of a flat stone or at the foot of the stone if it is too tall or too
pointed. Hope heals.
3. Leave your crystals for at least 30 minutes so that their negative energies will flow into the Earth and
power from the Earth can rise through the stones to cleanse them. Hope heals.
How to Smudge Your Crystals
Smudging your crystals is a very good thing to do for a circle of crystals. Hope heals.
1. You can use a sage or a cedar smudge stick (a tied bundle of dried herbs) or a large, broad-based
incense stick in cedar, sage or pine. Hope heals.
2. Light the smudge or the incense stick, and, before beginning your ceremony, face the 4 directions,
starting with the East, then the West, then the North and then the South. Then you can point your smudge
stick downward to the Earth and up towards the sky. Ask at each direction that the guardians of the East,
the South, the West and the North purify and empower your crystals. Then ask the same from Mother
Earth, and, lastly, from Father Sky. Hope heals.
3. Spiral your smudge stick alternately upwards and downwards, combining anti-clockwise and
clockwise smoke rings. Repeat your mantra as you work: 'Above, around, to the ground, peace surround.'
4. As an alternative, circle your crystals in smoke. Hope heals.
How to Cleanse with Mother Nature
1. Leave your crystal(s) in sunlight and moonlight for 24 hours or in a rainstorm for 2-3 minutes. The
day of the full moon is great as the moon rises around the time the sun sets and there is a continuous flow
of energies. Hope heals.
2. Put your crystal(s) in a pot of herbs which are associated with general healing. As an example, use
lavender, sage or rosemary. Leave them for a day and wash off any soil with running water. Hope heals.
3. Leave your crystals in a stream for 1 hour. Hope heals.
How to Cleanse with Crystals
1. Wrap the crystals you use for healing purposes with a large piece of amethyst in dark silk. Leave the
crystals in a closed drawer to rest and to recharge them. Hope heals.
How to Use an Herbal Infusion
1. Use 1 teaspoon of the herb that is appropriate for 3 cups of water. Hope heals.
2. If you use fresh herbs, use 3 teaspoons of the herb. Hope heals.
3. Pour boiling water over the herbs in a pot and leave the infusion to cool. Hope heals.
4. Strain your infusion into a ceramic or a glass dish. Throw out the used herbs. Hope heals.
5. Add your healing crystals to your infusion and leave them for 24 hours. Hope heals.
6. Hold your crystals under running water. Hope heals.
7. When using delicate crystals, you can alternatively use dried lavender heads, chamomile flowers or
rose petals in your infusion and make a circle of the sprinkled infusion around your crystals, 1st in an anti-
clockwise direction and then in a clockwise direction. Hope heals.
THE USE OF CRYSTALS IN YOUR HOME & IN YOUR WORKPLACE
Crystals have been used in the home and in the workplace for 1000's of years in every culture to bring
about power, harmony and protection to people, animals and places. In our very fast and modern moving
world, your personal crystals will create a small island of calm at home and at work. Your home and your
workplace accumulate energies from the crystals which a person can use when they become overstressed or
they need to focus their attention on an important task and to temporarily shut out distractions. Hope heals.
How to Change the Atmosphere
A small dish of crystals will subtly improve the atmosphere in your room at home or in the workplace.
Crystals in a dish help to maintain a stable, positive mood despite emotional ups and downs or a change of
focus. Hope heals.
1. Keep a dish of gentle colored crystals in places where people frequently clash, there is a mix of
strong egos or there is a frantic or a pressured atmosphere. Hope heals.
2. You can use stones to enhance concentration and enthusiasm and to help people more positively
communicate and exchange ideas with each other. Hope heals.
3. Keep a small dish of crystals you like on your desk or your workbench so that when you feel stressed
out or you need a burst of energy, you can close your eyes and intuitively pick a crystal for the quality you
need most. Hope heals.
4. You should keep money attracting crystals around, like jade, peridot and tiger's eye, in your purse,
with your credit cards at home, or near the tools of your trade or your account books at work. Hope heals.
5. Make restorative crystalline waters for 8 hours in small bottles or jars and keep them in the refrig-
erator. You can take your bottle of much needed crystalline strength and splash it on the pulse points of
your body at work or use the water to make drinks for family members or visitors. Hope heals.
6. Blue lace agate water will soften a critical tongue, labradorite water helps to encourage compromise
and orange carnelian fills you with self-confidence. A person seeking love can drink rose quartz water or
add 9 rose quartz crystals to a pre-date bath. Hope heals.
7. Carry sparkling crystal quartz, carnelian or citrine crystals with you when you want to be noticed, be
it socially or in a workplace situation. Hope heals.
All crystals have protective properties but over the millennia, in cultures from Ancient Babylon to the
Orient, these crystals have assumed importance as guardians of people, homes and places of work. They
would include amber, amethyst, bloodstone, brown and red jasper, carnelian, dark banded agates, garnet,
jade, jet, lapis lazuli, malachite, rose quartz, sodalite, tiger's eye, topaz and turquoise. Hope heals.
If you take part in a psychic reading or in healing work, then you need ongoing extra crystalline pro-
tection from negative influences in your life. You can set protective crystals at the 4 corners of your
healing room or on the table where you give readings. Place other crystals on either side of the entrance to
your crystal place to filter out negativity from the everyday world. Make sure you cleanse them frequently
from negative influences. Hope heals.
How to Use Crystals to Protect Your Workplace and Your Home
You can use crystals to shield yourself from spite at work and from very difficult relations with other
people. Crystals can also be used to protect you from your neighbors who try to drain your energy and
from those people who wish you ill because of envy (jealousy). Hope heals.
1. Smoky quartz buried at the corners of your home (in plant pots if necessary) will keep all who live
in the home and all of your possessions safe from harm. Hope heals.
2. Place an amethyst or an obsidian crystal point, sharp end outwards, in your workplace to deflect
gossiping or an over critical boss. Hope heals.
3. Keep rose quartz or amethyst by the phone and the computer at home or work to soften confron-
tational calls and confrontational e-mails. Hope heals.
4. Green and black malachite will help to absorb headache-inducing rays from computers and high-tech
equipment. Hope heals.
How to Protect Yourself when Traveling
Hide turquoise or pink kunzite (protective stones) in the glove box of a car, in your luggage to guard you
against attack, accident and road rage. Sodalite is a protective crystal which can be used for air travel. You
can carry a smoky quartz, misty obsidian or a labradorite crystal with you if you must travel alone late at
night or you are in potentially dangerous crowded areas. You can breathe in the misty energy and exhale
your fears as dull red light to act as a shield and to lower your profile so you will be less visible to hostility.
How to Protect Yourself from Negative Earth Energies
Sometimes your home and your workplace were built on land where there are very strong earth energies
which are not meant for homes or businesses. You can feel them and you feel constantly exhausted or you
can even become ill as the strong psychic currents charge your aura. Negative Earth energies can also be
caused by major manmade constructions like a main road. Electricity pylons, mobile phone masts and
mine workings can cause negative energy, as can unhappy or evil events, even if they happened many years
ago. Hope heals.
You can set dishes (or single, larger stones) of amber, amethyst, brown jasper and dark banded agate,
obsidian and tiger's eye in the center of any room which feels dark and unfriendly. The crystals will help
bring peace to a room where quarrels and bickering break out for no particular reason. Hope heals.
HOW TO WORK WITH CHILDREN & CRYSTALS
Children have an intuitive understanding of crystals. Because they are such spiritual beings and they are
psychically open to just about anything happening in their lives, especially the good stuff, they are very
receptive to crystal healings. A child will not only instinctively select the correct crystal(s) for a particular
ill, but they will move the crystal to the afflicted area, drawing out pain and infusing healing light in a way
which will be coveted by the most experienced adult healers. Hope heals.
Crystals for Children
It is never too early or too late to introduce a child to crystals and to crystal healing. Some women will
intuitively select a crystal for a child soon after becoming pregnant. They will place the crystal on the
womb when communicating with the fetus, hold the crystal during labor and then hang it over the baby's
crib for protection in the early hours and the early days of their life. The birth crystal then becomes the 1st
crystal of a child's personal crystal collection and it can be added to by relatives and friends at the naming
ceremony, birthdays and other important times of a child's life. When the adult child leaves home, the
crystal(s) will provide a link between them and the love of their family. Hope heals.
You can begin a child's crystal collection at any time in his or her life or start one for the child of a
grandchild of the family. Buy a zodiacal birthstone as a special gift. It can be worn or carried by the child
on significant occasions. The crystal selected before birth usually reflects the child's inner nature and
potential in life while the official birthstone will represent a child's persona to the world. As soon as a child
is old enough not to swallow or to chew on the crystals, they can keep them in a drawstring bag and will
often spontaneously begin healing teddy bears, dolls and willing adults. Hope heals.
Healing Children with Crystals
Amethyst, coral, blue lace agate, jade and rose quartz are excellent all-purpose healers for children.
Amethyst and rose quartz help to relieve nightmares and head pains, while rose quartz will aid earaches,
colic and stomach pains. Coral is great for teething pains and protects against falls. Jade is useful for all
fevers, growing pains and fears of all kinds. Blue lace agate soothes restless children and is useful for a
child who is learning how to walk. Hope heals.
HEALING & ANIMALS
Animals are very responsive to crystals and to crystal healings. Animal owners have great success with
healing their pets with crystals because of the strong bond of love and trust between the owner and the
animal which helps to amplify the crystal's healing powers. Hope heals.
1. A healthy animal will benefit from drinking water in which jade has been soaked every day as this
will help to maintain the vitality of the animal(s), especially in older animal(s). Amethyst water helps to
deter fleas and other parasites. Hope heals.
2. Moss agate or brown-banded agate placed under a pet's bed will calm them if they are hyperactive,
aggressive or very nervous. It is great for pets who have been rescued from a pet center. Hope heals.
3. Earth stones like brown and banded agate, golden-brown rutilated quartz and brown jasper, will put
gentle, healing earth energy into an animal needing healing. These stones are great for the chronically ill or
for very old animals or for those animals who are recovering from an operation or an intensive treatment.
4. Cat's eye is great for all cat healing and Dalmatian jasper is great for dogs. Hawk's eye (blue tiger's
eye) helps birds, and, aquamarine or blue coral helps fish. Tiger's eye or leopardskin jasper helps exotic
pets and both stones are good for sending healing energy to wild creatures which are under the threat of
extinction. Hope heals.
5. For 1000's of years, turquoise has helped animals to be protected from being stolen, straying or being
hurt in accidents or being hurt by animal haters. It can be attached to a horse's mane or bridle, an animal
collar, the mirror in a birdcage or the back of a small animal hutch. Hope heals.
CRYSTALS FOR HEALING THE ENVIRONMENT
Since crystals are formed in the Earth, they are molded by volcanic fire and they are affected by earth,
fire, wind (air), and water (the elements). Even the smallest crystal has the power to heal the environment.
When you hold any crystals up to the sky and/or the sun or the moon and you speak a prayer or an
empowerment, you release healing medicine from 'Earth Mother'. You can direct this healing energy to
healing polluted land, the seas or the atmosphere, or, to help assist any of the species which are endangered
by human carelessness. Hope heals.
Green and brown crystals are great for the land, the forests and the creatures. Blue and turquoise crystals
support the air, the seas, the birds and the sea creatures. Keep a small dish of environmental crystals on
your altar, and one time a week, hold one of the crystals. Focus on a particular place under threat which
you have seen in the news or on a local issue which needs healing. Speak to the ‘Earth Mother’ and/or
your Special Healing Angels and ask that the healing forces within the crystals and from the Earth help to
restore balance to your mind and to your body. Hope heals.
To help with damaged land, place a healing crystal at each of the corners of a photograph of the polluted
place, of belching smokey chimneys or of waste filled seas. Surround the picture with a circle of small
candles of the same color as the crystals, and, as you light each one of them, speak a blessing or a wish for
healing. Leave the candlelight to shine on your crystals and your picture until the candles are burned
through (do not leave candles unattended). Hope heals.
To heal wasteland like urban waste, bury moss agate and jade crystals in the earth, asking that life return
and that healing follows. Bury tree agate close to saplings in any areas where there is reforestation or
where forests have been ripped down to make way for roads. Encircle a photograph of a rainforest with
tree agates and waft the smoke of cedar or pine smudge or incense over the image to regenerate the lungs of
the Earth. Hope heals.
To help protect the Oceans, on the night of the full moon, drop 3 orbicular jasper, aquamarine or blue
coral crystals, one after the other, into a bowl of salt water. As you do this, make a wish for each crystal to
cleanse the seas and to protect the seals, the dolphins, the whales and the other endangered species. Or, you
can cast 3 blue glass nuggets one after the other into the sea at high tide, calling your wishes to the waves.
The concept of 12 different stones was found shown on a breastplate (excavated from a tomb dating from
about 4000 B.C.E.) which was worn by the High Priest of Memphis in Ancient Egypt. Afterwards, the
Hebrews adopted the idea of 12 different stones, assigning a stone to each of the 12 tribes of Israel, which
their High Priest wore in four rows. The tradition of the 12 stones evolved over the centuries, with gems or
crystals being assigned to the 12 angels, then the 12 Apostles and finally the 12 months. Birthstones came
into fashion in the 18th Century. Birthstones are worn to attract good luck and happiness and as the owner
keeps on wearing them, they impart positive energy to that person. You may wish to have a special ring, a
necklace or a belt buckle which contains your birthstone which you can wear for special occasions. The
stones you wear will become infused with love and joy and act like a talisman (a talisman is an object that
has been engraved with figures which are supposed to possess occult powers when worn as a charm.
). Birthstones will accumulate healthful and giving energy and just by holding them in your hands your
special stone will make you feel less stressed out, especially during important occasions. Hope heals.
The table that is associated with the 12 different stones is listed in this book of healing and combines
many different traditions. Refer to this table or to any other calendar of birthstones you may now own or
have access to for reference and for healing purposes. Hope heals.
How to Do Healing with Crystal Pairs
1. You can hold the more active and vibrant crystals (the first ones listed in the list above) in your power
hand (the one you write with) and the other one in your receptive hand (the one you do not write with).
When you establish a rhythm, you can simultaneously move your power crystals clockwise and use the
receptive crystals anti-clockwise over any pain or discomfort in the human body, the person, the place, the
thing, or the animal. This will help to relieve any pain or any discomfort felt in the patient. Do this 2
inches away from the body. Hope heals.
2. Slowly spiral up and down the body, moving the crystals harmoniously. You may want to develop a
mesmeric (a gripping) rhythm when possible. You may find that healing words, mantras or sayings come
spontaneously out of your lips. Hope heals.
3. You may find that the crystals you are using stop over an imbalanced energy chakra and move much
faster as they try to unbalance it and to unblock it (the blocked energy). Hope heals.
4. The goal of any good healer is to flow with the movement and the moment. When you find yourself
slowing down, the healing is complete. Hope heals.
Examples of Crystals & Their Healing Powers
1. A person can balance their body's energy and circulate healing through their entire body by using
crystals associated with each of the chakras (psychic energy centers) and their respective colors. Hope

mind to guide them in their healing. Hope heals.
9. Crystal pendulums are an accurate and a fast way to make intuitive decisions. Hope heals.
10. Making crystal formulations, mandalas or medicine wheels helps to capture the essence of a person's
and the Earth's healing powers. Hope heals.
11. Scrying (seeing images in a reflective surface or in the mind's eye) with crystals or stones in water is
a great way to see things (divination - 1. divination is the practice of seeking to predict the future using a
crystal ball. 2. It can also mean that a person has gotten very good at using their intuitive ability to
perceive things, which requires a very keen eye, a very keen mind and a lot of awareness). Hope heals.
12. Using incense helps to restore the energy of a crystal which has been used for healing purposes.
13. Using running water to empower crystal(s) will release their healing energy. Hope heals.
14. Amber, malachite and sodalite are great to keep in the workplace to help absorb negative and harmful
influences from the workplace. Ex. computers, co-workers, telephones, etc. Hope heals.
15. Crystalline pyramids help to create an area of stillness and calm. They also help to enhance a
person's self-healing abilities and to help awaken their psychic powers within their self. Hope heals.
16. Rose quartz is a great stone for children and animals as it gently brings them calm and helps to
counteract the frantic pace of the Modern World. Hope heals.
17. Blue lace agate is great for helping children to heal. Hope heals.
18. Crystals help to form a focal point during rituals to help bring together the power of the elements of
the earth, wind, fire, air and water. Rose quartz will attract love and friendship and help to mend quarrels
between one or more people. Hope heals.
19. Crystal spheres are generally used to direct healing sunlight, to take away pain and to enhance your
healing abilities. Hope heals.
20. A clear quartz cluster will promote a calm and a harmonious atmosphere in the home or in the

There are a plethora of stones within the pantheon of healing and a great book to read to learn more
about crystals and their healing powers would be 'The Illustrated Directory of Healing Crystals: A
COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO 150 CRYSTALS AND GEMSTONES' by Cassandra Eason, which is
also listed in the Bibliography of this book. Hope heals.
No book on healing or healing crystals is ever complete. All an author can do is present the best of the
knowledge they have been able to glean – to collect (something) bit by bit, and, research with the help of
people, books, computers and the media, and, to put it into a tangible and a concrete form which can easily
be understood by those people who are interested in reading that knowledge and that information, and, to
use it for their own healing purposes. I have successfully done this. Now, it is up to you, dear ‘Child of
the Universe’, to use this information wisely and to heal your self. Hope heals.
