Religion is the belief in someone else’s experience.
Spirituality is having your own experience.
What does crystal healing have to do with spirituality?
Since all healing modalities are energy based, it is safe to say that energy IS spirit and spirit IS energy. Even though we are working with subtle energy, it is still energy.
Let’s look at the definitions of “energy” and “spirit”
the capacity for vigorous activity; available power: I eat chocolate to get quick energy. an adequate or abundant amount of such power: I seem to have no energy these days. Often energies. a feeling of tension caused or seeming to be caused by an excess of such power: to work off one’s energies at tennis. an exertion of such power: She plays tennis with great energy.the habit of vigorous activity; vigor as a characteristic: Foreigners both admire and laugh at American energy. the ability to act, lead others, effect, etc., forcefully.
the principle of conscious life; the vital principle in humans, animating the body or mediating between body and soul.the incorporeal part of humans: present in spirit though absent in body.
to animate with fresh ardor or courage; inspirit. to encourage; urge on or stir up, as to action.
So if you look at the definitions for both, you can see similarities. People use these words interchangeably.
So with crystal healing, we are working with the energy or spirit of the crystal to assist in your healing.
In Trans Crystal Therapy, we are pointing Quartz crystals on different points of the body to run energy throughout – clearing out the old and replenishing it with the new.
May you discover your true self through exploring spirituality.
Everything is different now that we’ve experienced 2 months of Covid-19. Depending on your situation, life is either easy or tough and so I wanted to write this for those who want to go within.
If you miss the in person healing sessions, this is the technique I use for DIY – do it yourself crystal healings that you can do on yourself.
What you will need:
+ A comfortable space to lie down where you will not be disturbed, maybe a cover in case it’s cold. I like to use my padded yoga mat. + A pillow to rest your head + Your crystals & stones + The meditation app Insight Timer
Why would you even want to do this? There are all kinds of reasons why you would do a crystal healing on yourself but off the top of my head here are a few:
+ You want to heal yourself. Ok, but what are we healing from? Lots of things, but that’s another topic in itself and I will write about that next time. + You are feeling stressed or anxious and are looking for some relief. + You are feeling bored, uninspired and need a temporary escape from daily life. + You want to meet your metaphysical or spiritual guides.
My main reason for doing these sessions on myself is that I want to boost my creativity and imagination. Creativity and imagination is very important to me as I am an artist, designer and marketer – I am constantly generating ideas for content at work and for my own small business.
Step 1: Gather you crystals and stones
You don’t have to have a lot of crystals for your meditation, always work with what you have. If you have a Quartz crystal, you can program it.
If you are familiar with the Chakra system, then gather 7 crystals or stones to place on each chakra for a Chakra Healing or Chakra Balancing session. In the photo above I used:
1 Root Chakra: Smoky Quartz 2 & 3 Sacral & Solar Plexus Chakra: Natural Citrine (which I held in my right hand) 4 Heart Chakra: Green Aventurine and Aura Rose Quartz (I put the Aura Rose Quartz on my heart, while I held the Green Aventurine in my left hand) 5 Throat Chakra: Blue Kyanite 6 Third Eye Chakra: Optical Calcite 7 Crown Chakra: Lemurian Quartz
Step 2: Lie down and start putting crystals on yourself
If you only have 2 crystals, you can put one in each hand. If you have a small Amethyst that can sit on your third eye, put it on your forehead. If you have 7 crystals or stones, start from the first chakra and work your way up. Don’t forget to have your phone close by so you don’t have to get up anymore.
Step 3: Go to Insight Timer app on your phone
You can set a timer on Insight Timer for 10-15 minutes, a bell will go off every few minutes or so depending on how you set it up. But if you want to have a metaphysical experience, I want to suggest you pick a meditation that you like on there.
For my meditation, I chose Jerred and Natalie’s Crystal Singing Bowl Meditation for Shamanic Journeying. It’s 21 minutes long, but once you’re deep in meditation it feels a lot longer.
Step 4: Say a prayer or an invocation
It’s hard to imagine that you are actually traveling when you meditate. Yes, your body may be there – but your spirit may start to wander off, as if you’re day dreaming or even dreaming while asleep, except you’re not asleep.
In any case you want to say a little prayer asking for protection from inner and outer harm. You can also do an invocation. Or you can just say: I ask my higher self and my guides to take me where I need to go, thank you.
Step 5: Begin your meditation by focusing on your breathing.
Start your Insight timer. Depending on how experienced you are in meditating – it takes about 5-10 minutes to get settled in, meaning that for the first few minutes your mind will be “on”. Lots of thoughts running around in circles, maybe you’re not quite comfortable yet or maybe you feel overwhelmed by the amount of crystal energy on your body. Observe and accept what is happening and feel free to remove some crystals and continue.
Step 6: Once the meditation is over, remove the crystals from your body.
Congratulations, you did it! Don’t get up right away, as your consciousness just traveled to a metaphysical place. Take your crystals off one by one, starting from the top. Wiggle your hands and toes, blink your eyes and get reacquainted with your body and the room you’re in. Whenever you’re ready, get up and drink some water.
Step 7: Record your experience
Did something happen while you were in meditation, did you see something or someone? How did you feel? Write it down or draw it.
I hope you had a great experience doing the DIY crystal healing session on yourself.
You probably hear the terms “energy healing” and “energy work” often, as both terms tend to blend into one another. The question is, are they the same? If not, then what is the difference?
This is just my own interpretation of the differences between Energy Healing and Energy Work so bare with me as I attempt to explain.
Energy Healing is the process of healing your energy or those who come to you through the use of a variety of different energetic or alternative medicine methods.
Still sounds vague. But what does that mean exactly?
It means you are actively working on healing yourself by getting to know which of your chakras are open or blocked. The chakras are wheels of subtle energy that generate the electromagnetic field around our body that is more commonly known as our aura or energy body. If one of your chakras is blocked, you will have difficulty with certain issues with your life. For example, if your 5th chakra is blocked or spinning very low or not at all – you will have difficulty speaking clearly and expressing your wants and needs, as the 5th chakra is associated with the throat. Whether this is done through seeing an energy worker, healer or practitioner or even doing it on your own is based on your personal preference / experience.
Examples of energy healing could involve going for a Reiki or Crystal Healing session.
Energy Work is the process of working with energy and intention to achieve certain results. Again, it can be done by yourself or by going to an energy worker, healer or practitioner.
But again, what does that mean?
When we work with energy, we are working with the unseen forces of nature to create or achieve a certain outcome or result. In most energy workings, the goal is to achieve balance, inner peace and harmony within the self’s inner and outer world.
To put it simply: our thoughts create our reality.
In order to achieve this, you or the energy worker must be trained or experienced in doing meditation, visualization and breathing techniques on a regular basis to bring your subtle bodies – your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies – back into balance. In doing so, your body, mind and soul/spirit are whole again.
Examples of energy work could involve you meditating, balancing your chakras, repeating mantras or affirmations, lighting a candle for a specific outcome or even writing your thoughts in a journal.
Some say Energy Work is similar to Manifestation and I can see why; both processes involves working with energy and intention.
Energy Healing and Energy Work are terms that are used frequently in the wellness and healing industries. Although they may sound very similar, there are some subtle differences:
Energy Healing is using energy or alternative medicine methods to heal yourself or others.
Energy Work is the process of creating the energy you want around a certain outcome. For example: wanting health, inner peace and healing for yourself.
If you make an appointment with me and you change your mind about showing up, I would greatly appreciate it if you would communicate with me. Reply to my email, I promise I won’t get upset with you. If anything I will respect and appreciate you more than anything. It means that you respect my time. It also indicates you are a responsible and considerate person. It sucks when people don’t tell you that they’re not going to show up for their appointment. How would you feel if someone did that to you?
If you know me, then you also know that I am a nerd when it comes to visuals and graphic design – it’s what I do for a living when I’m not doing Reiki / crystal healing on the weekends.
I was talking to someone and they mentioned that they do pranic healing. Of course I was curious so I Googled it and discovered a (new to me) teacher by the name of Master Choa Kok Sui. I believe finding his work was not a coincidence; I am looking at his photo and I feel as if he is smiling at me. I have found a new teacher and guide. And now my goal is to collect and read all his books. It also delights me to know he was of Filipino-Chinese descent – I am also Filipino.
I copied and pasted this from my Google search:
Master Choa Kok Sui is the founder of Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga. He has established healing centers in 45 countries and is constantly traveling amongst the different ones giving workshops and seminars. He is also a chemical engineer and a highly successful businessman in the Philippines. Google Books
Born: August 15, 1952, Cebu, Philippines Died: March 19, 2007, Quezon City, Philippines
So there you have it. I just wanted to save this book cover because it was eye catching and has a vintage feel to it. And of course I love rainbows and all things healing.😊
To my surprise, Master Choa Kok Sui had also written a book on Pranic Crystal Healing; here is the book cover.
From what I gather so far, pranic healing sounds similar to Reiki except it is a no-touch healing technique. I can’t wait to order his books and read them all.
I told myself recently that if I didn’t have a lot of clients for my crystal healing practice, I would keep on learning, expanding my knowledge and creating things that make me happy. As most of you probably already know, I am an artist & graphic designer so creativity is important to me and so I’ve incorporated it into my healing practice. Advertising consistently gets expensive, so I have to figure out other ways to put myself out there without spending so much money.
So I made this video of me doing hypnotic, energetic hand movements as an experiment. It is similar to what I do during a Trans-Crystal Therapy session, where my hands are sweeping over your aura or your energy field to see if there are hot, cold or “heavy” spots. It takes practice to feel the energetic field that surrounds us, but if you persist you can eventually feel something.
I added rainbows to simulate the aura and sparkles to visualize the energy.

I saw this on @HypePriestess’ Instagram story and wanted to post it here, which led me to DharmaTalks.com to borrow the image ::waves hello to both of you if you happen to see this::
It’s just a perfect little summary to explain what I do, except I work with the energy of crystals and stones so it’s called “Crystal Healing”.
It says in the image:
Everyone has 4 “bodies” of energy: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual
While they are independent of each other, if one of them is out of balance, you will feel lack and discomfort in your life (usually with health, relationships, or money). Just as you heal your physical body through exercise and diet, there are also methods of healing your other energy bodies.
Do a Google search and you’ll discover that there are many types of energy healing with a variety of names such as:
Chakra Balancing, Chakra Healing, Crystal Healing, Energy Work, Middle Pillar, Pranic Healing, Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy, Quantum Touch, Reiki and so much more.
The energy healing modalities I am trained in are Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki and Trans Crystal Therapy. I have combined these two modalities into one – Reiki Crystal Healing. If you are in the Los Angeles area and wouldn’t mind coming to my home North Hollywood, you can book a session at Crystal Healer LA.
If Crystal Healing is a form of energy work that involves the use of crystals…
then a crystal healer, or crystal therapist – is a person who works with the energy of crystals and stones to assist a person in their healing.
But, what exactly is healing?
Healing is the term most commonly associated with energy work. Energy workers, also known as energy healers work with life force energy to restore a person’s emotional, mental, spiritual and physical bodies – collectively known as the subtle body – back to a harmonious and balanced state. The crystals and stones are energy healing tools that hold a resonance (earth and cosmic energy) that aids in the healing process. The person receiving the healing is raising their own vibration to match that of the healing practitioner and the crystals and stones being used.
A crystal healer can facilitate healings with or without certification, although these days most people take the certified route – especially if you intend to accept clients. Some healers have learned the ancient art of crystal healing through reading books or just trying it on their own while others have taken courses online or in person and received certification.
Since we exist in a world where often times people need proof, a certification acknowledges that the person has undergone training to properly facilitate a healing. It is up to you – the individual – to decide whether you prefer someone who is certified or not.
It’s much more important that you vibe with the energy healing practitioner you have chosen to assist you than a certification, so as always do your research and follow your intuition. Also, don’t be afraid to ask them questions.
Not all crystal healers are the same, meaning some have learned different ways of working with crystal energy. While most are familiar with the ‘laying of stones’ technique on the 7 chakras of the subtle body, other crystal healing techniques include Crystal Reiki, Crystal Surgery, sound and Trans Crystal Therapy – which is my specialty.
You have an open heart and an open mind. Maybe you don’t quite believe in the healing power of crystals and stones yet, but you’re curious and willing to try.
If you said ‘yes’, then you should definitely come for a crystal healing session.
I’m going to use the simple analogy of getting your skin cut by a knife or sharp object – our skin has the natural ability to regenerate and heal, thus making the cut disappear within 5 to 7 days.
It is the same with crystal healing, which is a form of energy work that addresses not only the physical but also the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of ourselves. Just like our cars need maintenance, so do our energetic bodies. Consistent amounts of stress, anxiety, worry, trauma and the wide range of human interactions can take a toll on our spirits, leaving us depleted and exhausted.
So during a crystal healing / crystal therapy session, you are essentially getting an energy tune up. We must learn to maintain our energy and release blockages from our body on a regular basis, otherwise they fester and manifest into dis-ease.
Through conscious breathing and visualizing yourself as a healed human being, a healing takes place.
I am available for in person Reiki and crystal healing sessions in North Hollywood, CA. Sessions take place at my home. Distance healing sessions are also available by request.
A crystal healing or crystal therapy session can activate your own healing powers.
Well, what does that mean exactly?
If you visit healers on a regular basis, most of them will let you know that you already have everything you need to heal; all you have to do is believe and look within.
From time to time, we forget or don’t even know that we have this ability. If often takes being in crisis that compels you to visit a practitioner in the healing arts – whether it’s through tarot, crystal healing, Reiki or any kind of energy work – to activate your own healing powers.
Using these techniques together to help heal your bodies on a regular basis, you will begin to notice the effects: you feel less anxious and more peaceful and relaxed. And if you are still feeling certain emotions, keep at it as you still have stuff that needs to be released. It’s going to be an ongoing practice.
When the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical aspects of ourselves are balanced and are in harmony with each other, we can self-heal.
Most people – especially those who work in Western medicine will call it a ‘placebo’. Healers know this is the power of our will. When we focus our energy on what we want through meditation and visualization, healing takes place.
I know this because I’ve learn to heal to myself, it’s an ongoing thing that becomes a practice. If I can do it so can you.😊
If you are not sure how to begin your healing journey then by all means, visit an energy healing practitioner. Visit me at crystalhealerla.com – sessions take place in person at my home in North Hollywood, CA.
