Train as a Crystal Healer

What Should You Look for in a Course?


Here’s what I think you should look for when you are searching for the right courses for you:


Check you really like the teacher. You are going to make a big commitment to a course, spending time and money with this person, so it is really important that you get good vibes about them. You need to look for someone you sense is approachable, knowledgeable, supportive, experienced in their field and a clear communicator. Their energy needs to feel positive and enthusiastic about the subject they are training on.

Top 10 Crystals for Protection


Here are my top 10 choices of protective stones. There are many more, but these ones are easy to get hold of, relatively inexpensive and have proven their worth time and time again. 


Black Tourmaline

This is my number one choice for protection and I have seen it literally ‘switch off’ an attack for someone who was pale, panicking, sweating and shaking a moment before. Black tourmaline provides very strong grounding, which is a big factor in feeling safe and secure. The action of this crystal is also strongly purifying. I have some large chunks that I use as grounding stones for clients, plus some smaller natural points that are great for using in a crystal net or on a distant healing layout. Keep a piece of black tourmaline on your person if you are living or working in difficult energies and cleanse it daily. Read the rest of this article here

What Happens in a Crystal Healing?


Crystal healing is an energy based therapy that uses crystals to bring mind, body and spirit back into balance. Here I explain what you might expect if you visit a crystal therapist.


When you arrive for a crystal healing you will probably be asked to sit down whilst the therapist notes some information for their records. They will ask you why you are seeking therapy. If you have a specific health issue you will normally be asked whether you have sought medical advice and whether you are undergoing any other treatment. Crystal healers are holistic in their approach and so you might also be asked about your lifestyle, level of happiness and any significant life events or past illnesses, as these could have relevance for your treatment. On subsequent visits the therapist will be interested to hear about any changes you’ve noticed and how you felt after your last treatment. Read the rest of this article here


Healing the Heart with Rose Quartz


Rose quartz is one of the most loved and well known crystals. It is often one of the first stones that someone will buy for themselves. 

Rose quartz supports the emotions and helps us to develop a sense of self esteem. It resonates most strongly with the heart chakra and helps us heal from the emotional wounds most of us experience in life. With rose quartz the pain is eased over time and we can start to comprehend the deeper lessons of our experiences and grow in compassion for others, using our own experience to develop empathy. Simply placing the crystal on your heart chakra will begin to shift your energies. Do remember to use a cleansed crystal and to cleanse it again after use.
