Our energy can be diminished or unbalanced for a number of reasons, much of which is self-inflicted: negative thoughts; the wrong foods; or too much exposure to radiation from computers and other electrical equipment.  Certain gems and crystals are said to be ideally suited to counterbalance these everyday hazards.   For example,  rose quartz is quite generally beneficial and reputed to speed up healing,  garnet is said to be particularly effective against depression and skin complaints, while malachite will help with toothache, irregular menstruation, and asthma.

Crystals and gems have long been valued for more than their aesthetic beauty.   Many cultures have imbued them with mystical qualities and it has long been believed that they both store and conduct healing energies.   Different crystals and stones are said to resonate at different vibrational frequencies, offering varying healing possibilities.

What to Expect
Practitioners' methods vary enormously.  Naturally, you will be asked what aspect of your life or health condition you wish to improve, and you can expect to be asked questions relating to your lifestyle and state of mind.  Some healers will have you lie down and arrange the appropriate crystals and gems around you, or place them on the body's seven chakras (energy centres), or on an affected area; or you may be asked to hold them.  Some practitioners use gem essences which can be ingested. You may be assigned certain crystals to keep with you at home, in which case you will be given instructions as to how to 'attune' your crystal to your dedicated needs.

Training & Colleges
Crystal and gem practitioners will often practise other forms of complementary healing, such as aromatherapy,  kinesiology or energy work,  like Jan and Keth do.

Etheric Crystal Removal / Activation  In the etheric blueprint body, there are twelve-sided etheric crystals and other structures that act as "circuit breakers."  We call these regulator crystals. You placed these structures in the blueprint body before entering incarnation to assist you to look and feel humanly limited. Ninety percent of people have what we call a "standard issue" of nineteen crystals. They keep certain Light connections from being made in the etheric blueprint body thereby preventing certain perceptions and abilities from manifesting physically.  Some of these "circuit breakers" inhibit: our psychic, telepathic, knowledge of our true self and our spiritual abilities.  Keth is a sacred Etheric Surgeon with the Knights of the Solar Cross.  SeeLightBody Activations

Ten Healing Crystals for  Men (or Women)
Excerpt from: A Guide to Gem and Crystal Therapy
by Karen Ryan,  Crystal Energy Therapist

Crystals and gemstones have  often been worn by men as jewelry, or to
decorate formal suits to signify  their official or regal status in
society.   In ancient times polished  crystals were embedded on shields
for protection during battle.  Carved  crystal amulets offered
protection from poisoned wine.  Gem and crystal crafting today is
still almost exclusively men's work.  However, the use of  precious
metals and gem synthetics has slowly replaced the use of gemstones  in
popular men's jewelry.  The use of crystals for healing was 
popularized in the tale of England's King Arthur with his wizard, 
Merlin, who lived in the Crystal Cave.

If you feel awkward about  wearing crystals dangling down in front of
your tie in public, and are not  inclined to be an "urban shaman",
here are some  suggestions:

a.. Wear your healing crystals in a medicine  pouch (a pouch on a
string) and tuck it down inside your shirt. Try to  select crystals
that are relatively flat, and your pouch will go unnoticed.  Place
your crystals inside a small pouch and drop it into your breast 
pocket to help heal your Heart.

b.. For the office or  workplace, leave your stones out as
decorative objects.  If anyone asks, you  can say you are a collector,
or you are buying it for your kids as part of  their geology class.

c.. Keep your crystals loose inside your  front pants pockets, and
hold them for a while several times during the  day.

d.. At night, leave the crystals next to your bed or  under your
pillow.  Remember to cleanse and recharge your crystals at least  once
a month.

I asked a number of healers (both men and women) about  what they felt
were the healing issues for men. The responses are grouped  as:

a.. social isolation
b.. stress-related 
c.. emotional health
d.. intuition
e..  communications
f.. health issues
g.. self-esteem and power 
h.. communication

I have listed a selection of ten crystals  and gemstones from a group
of twenty-five which are useful in healing men  and some of the men's
issues listed above.

A "Master  Healing Crystal". Also called "the Royal Stone". Amethyst's
most noted  healing quality is its ability to purify and transmute all
forms of  negativity. Get a large Amethyst crystal cluster for your
home or office to  protect yourself from hostile energies around you.
If anxiety causes  shortness of breath, put the cluster on or near
your chest and breath slowly  for a few minutes to lessen the
symptoms. Consider a large, well-set  amethyst gemstone ring to
enhance your personal magnetism and to provide  mental clarity.
Amethyst is also helpful for migraines, arthritic pains, and 
connecting to one's spirituality for guidance.

The "Sex  Stone" - Garnet strengthens and restores physical and
emotional energy lost  through constantly ensuring the protection and
welfare of others. When you  feel a bit lost or abandoned in the
chaos of daily life, Garnet helps to  provide the needed grounding and
empowering to become more decisive and  committed to a direction.
Garnet is well-known for enhancing and  regenerating one's sexuality
(the physical aspects). For best effects, tape  a small half-inch
piece at the Hara centre - one and one-half inches below  the navel -
and wear it overnight.

A "Crystal of  Tranquility." Also called "the Sport Stone", promoting
agility and  swiftness. Many men from the Far East know the benefits
of wearing Jade.  Some will tell you that it is for their health, and
how the colour of the  Jade gets darker with good health and lighter
with declining health. Jade  soothes the emotions, and provides
emotional detachment and restoration  after various traumas such as
minor surgery, divorce, funerals, or loss of  job. Some say it is for
good luck. Jade is a stone which is easily obtained  in most city
centres and can be openly worn as a pendant.

Rose  Quartz
"The Love Stone" - Rose Quartz is another Master Healing Crystal that 
specializes in transmuting emotional negativity at all levels. It 
enhances one's ability to give and receive love, by opening the Heart 
chakra and stimulating greater flexibility in communications. It
mellows  out a reluctant Heart, and provides peace in relationships
through harmony.  Rose Quartz is used for meditation, as it stills
one's aggressive thoughts  and provides mental tranquility. It can
heal a broken heart very quickly  too.

Smokey Quartz
The "Emotional Balancer Crystal" - Smokey Quartz  is a very
specialized crystal for negative emotional energy. This crystal is 
excellent for mood swings, aggressive actions, ill temper, and
generally  nasty thoughts. It grounds all kinds of negative energy.
This stone is  helpful for burnout, fear of failure, reluctance to
take risks, or wanting  revenge, as well as for tendencies to over-
eat, smoke or drink due to  stress. It helps you accept responsibility
for yourself, and to broaden your  capacity for effective
communication by dissolving self-limiting  perceptions.

"The King of Crystals" - Diamond intensifies and  activates one's
internal energies through its purity of vibration. The  better the
quality of Diamond, the better one's own personal qualities and 
actions. When freely given, Diamond power becomes activated and can
be  used for manifesting abundance and increasing personal self-
esteem. It is a  token of one's love to another, and both enhances and
radiates the beauty of  the wearer. The Diamond is also known for
invincibility, representing the  life force (prana).

"The Stress Stone" - Hematite is a  versatile metallic-like crystal
used for enhancing one's logic, mathematical  abilities, rational
thinking and depth of technical knowledge. It grounds  creative energy
to make one's thoughts more practical and focused. As a  "Stress
Stone", Hematite reflects negativity back to the sender, so you  don't
end up with someone else's stress. For backache or leg cramps, use 
surgical tape to fix a few pieces onto painful areas. The crystal's 
energy is like a magnet and effectively draws out pain related to 
muscular or joint alignment problems. Hematite is also used to reduce 

Lapis Lazuli
"The Stone of The Pharaohs" - Lapis Lazuli  is well-known as a
favorite stone used in the courts of the ancient Egyptian  Kings.
Lapis means "stone" and Lazuli means "blue". This deep blue stone is 
used for stimulating mental strength and intellectual precision.
Lapis  is a consciousness elevator, raising one's awareness to new
heights and to  greater expansion. It brings feelings of success and
connectedness and  protection. For intuitive people, Lapis intensifies
psychic power. 

"A Man's Stone" - The deep forest green of Malachite is  symbolic of
the deep healing and cleansing this stone provides. It can aid  in
breaking down old patterns, whether emotional (stuck patterns of 
behavior) or physical (tumors, swollen joints, muscular). Malachite 
promotes business relationships and the increase of wealth by
removing  obstacles to one's growth. The most important aspect of this
crystal's  healing ability, however, is for the preventive health of
the physical heart  and liver. If you are attracted to this crystal,
chances are you have a  family history of heart-related problems and
probably need a heart check-up. 

Moonstone (Adularia)
"The Feminine Balancing Crystal". To soften and  balance dominant male
attributes with some feminine qualities, Moonstone  provides for a
depth of perception and feelings, discernment, creativity and  self-
expression. Other properties of Moonstone - increases awareness and 
focus, releases one's intuition, has rejuvenating qualities for the
skin  and hair (baldness?), reduces water retention, and provides
protection for  travelers. Moonstones increase their powers before and
during the full moon,  so leave them out at night to soak up the
moon's rays.
