Well let me honest, when I started this journey, I had no idea either! I had collected some crystals and a little bit of knowledge over time and then suddenly I decided to make the big push to gain more understanding of why I was being drawn down this path.
I’m a helper and a fixer but I didn’t know how I was supposed to channel these abilities. Do I study psychology? Do I become a counsellor? And when and how and holy crap, what am I doing with my life???!!! Then I completely stumbled upon crystal healing and then a certification course and I was like, “That’s a thing?” and the more I found out about it, the more it made sense to my journey.
It was intimidating at first. I wasn’t the best student in school especially sciences and there was science, oh so much science! But it was comfortable and easy and felt right and turns out, I like science! You see, these rocks aren’t just pretty faces, they have vibrational energy. All matter has vibrational energy. There is a reason why crystals are in watches and electronics and x-rays, etc. They amplify vibration.
Now, we mere humans are a bundle of various frequencies. All our organs are doing their own thing. Then there are also our chakras, the main energy centers that run along our spine that connect us to our past, present and future and our mind, body and spirit. These little wheels of life carry big impact on who we are and how we relate to ourselves and others. When one or more of the chakras are imbalanced, it can manifest into something mental, emotional and/or physical.
Where do crystals come in? Most of us enjoy the rainbow of colours and sparkle that crystals possess and each chakra is associated to a colour. By working with stones on these chakra centers with corresponding colour, we enhance the function of the chakra. Now, there’s a whole lot more involved here but generally speaking, crystals are a great vibrational balancing tool.
I’m still a little uncomfortable with the term “healer”. Some people who are not familiar with healing modalities might think I have lost my mind and I think I possess some sort of magical power. I’m simply a facilitator. I don’t do the healing- the stones, the life force energy of Reiki and the power of your own self-awareness will help heal you.
Having a crystal healing session can teach you a lot about yourself. I encourage you to explore more knowledge about crystals if it is something you are drawn to. I’m here to help if you need me.
