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.
Crystal therapy (Crystal or Gem healing) is the use of crystal and stones for therapeutic and healing purposes.
The healing properties of crystals have been recognised and harnessed for thousands of years. The ancients, who perceived crystals as being sacred and magical, were experts in their use, employing crystals for such purposes as protection, adornment, healing and for seeing into the future. Crystals were abundant in Egyptian tombs and temples and were frequently worn and carried by ancient Egyptians as amulets and charms. Crystals are frequently referred to in Greek mythology, and have also been discovered in the tombs of Chinese rulers. Native Americans used crystals extensively in their ceremonies and initiations, as did the Mayans and Aztecs. Crystals are referred to more than two hundred times in the Bible. Among the numerous crystals listed are agate, amethyst, diamond, jasper, sapphire and topaz, while Exodus tells us that precious stones were used in the breastplate of the Jewish High Priest.
Crystal for Healing
Crystal has an important role in preventing disease and keeping you healthy, but if you do succumb to illness, they are a gentle but effective healing tool. Healing can be defined as bringing the body, emotions, mind and spirit back into harmony. It dose not necessarily imply a cure, although it frequently ameliorates conditions. Crystal healing is a gentle and non-invasive process that creates balance on all levels, and one that can provide support to the body’s own internal healing systems. The lore on which it is based has its roots in antiquity and the body of knowledge is, therefore, supported by thousands of years of practical experience.
Crystals interact with the human energy field to heal, calm, stimulate or adjust the energies within it and to bring the body back into balance. They are beneficial for children, animals, adults and the environment. Crystals also work on attitudes, emotions and the mind, instilling a feeling of well-being, neutralizing negativity, lifting depression and assisting coordination – both mental and physical. One of their most important roles in healing is in bringing the chakras and subtle energy around the physical body back into alignment, and another is in dealing with underlying factors in dis-ease – the psychosomatic effect of the mind and emotions on the body.
Exactly how they do this is still something of a mystery, despite their having been used for this purpose for thousands of years, but the major explanations centre around three things: vibration, colour and mineral constituents.
Each crystal has its own unique vibration, which can be felt by sensitive people, and most have a small but measurable electrical charge together with an internal lattice-like structure that absorbs and transforms toxic energies.
Virtually all crystals were born deep in the earth, inside the earth’s magnetic field, so it’s not surprising that they absorbed its magnetic charge and stellar radiation. However, the unique way in which each type of crystal developed subtly altered its magnetic charge. Some were produced, or amended, by great heat or pressure; others were laid down gradually over aeons of time; one or two arrived from outer space. Each cell within the human body also has an electrical charge and when the charge of a crystal is brought close to a cell, or to the biomagnetic sheath that surrounds the physical body, it gently brings the energy of the cell or the biomagnetic sheath back into balance.
Crystals are formed from specific minerals, or combinations of minerals, and the chemical constitution of the stones, and their healing effect, was recognized in ancient Egypt and underlies crystal healing lore. Peridot, for instance, known as poor-man’s Emerald because it shares its more expensive counterpart’s brilliant green colour, is formed from silicon, iron and magnesium; while Tourmaline contains iron, boron, aluminium, lithium, magnesium, potassium, silicon, sodium and trace elements that affect the colour; and Turquoise is mainly aluminium with copper andiron. These minerals, which are essential for body health and physiological processes, pass into the body in minute dilutions and subtly affect health.
Kunzite, with its high lithium content, mimics the taking of a conventional lithium prescription in homeopathic dosage to control the mood swings of bipolar disorder.
It is important that stones with significant mineral content are placed, or worn, touching the skin rather than outside clothing.
For thousands of years, energy centres, known as the chakras, have been identified on the human body and it has long been recognized that if a chakra is out of balance, it will cause dis-ease of a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual nature according to the chakra concerned. Each chakra resonates to a different colour – the base red, the sacral to orange, the solar plexus to yellow, the heart to pink, the throat to blue, the third eye to indigo, the crown to violet and the higher crown to white, and when the appropriate colour crystal is placed in the chakra, it brings it back into balance and alignment.
In addition, the colour of the stone also plays a part in its healing effect. Deep-purple Amethyst, for instance, bears a resemblance to wine, and the stone has been renowned that since ancient times for its sobering effect, counteracting the effects of over-indulgence and lifting the spirits. Red stones both energize and, paradoxically, calm, drawing off anger and disorder. Blood-coloured, they were traditionally associated with haemorrhage and inflammation. Blue was seen as the colour of heaven, having a tonic effect, and counteracting the effect of the spirits of darkness. Yellow stones were associated with bilious disorders, jaundice and the liver; while soothing green was seen to have a powerful effect on tired and disorder eyes.
Some crystals have Astrological correspondences that also go back thousands of years. The crystal is aligned to a planet, or to a zodiac sign, that ‘ rules’ the part of the body concerned and that is , therefore, beneficial to its proper functioning as it draws the celestial energy into the physical plane. In the East, gemstones are still used to correct imbalances that are identified from the natal chart.
Choosing Colours for Specific Purposes
Ayurveda considers colour to be subtle form of nutrition for the body’s life force, the mind, and the impressions which nourish them. Our body and mind not only absorb colours, they also produce them. The actions of life forces in the body produce colours corresponding to their frequencies and how they are influenced by our mental and emotional states. The colours of the body’s aura can reveal prevailing physical and mental states and states of consciousness. Colours can be visualized and projected into one’s field of awareness and the physical body for specific purposes. If we feel that we need the influence of certain colours and they are not immediately available in our environment, we can visualize them as being present in the mind or body.
Disharmonious colours can derange mental activity and emotions, and harmonious colours can balance them. Bright colours are stimulating and energizing; dark colours are suppressive. For therapeutic purposes, exposure of the body to lights of prescribed colours can be helpful. Dark blue light, for instance, may be used to heal an infected skin lesion or wound. For general purposes, we can expose ourselves to colours by the clothing we choose to wear and how we choose to paint or decorate our living and work environment.
For overall well-being, we should use sattvic colours: white, gold, blue and other colours which affect us harmoniously. Colours can have elevating influences if they are pleasant to live with and make only a mild impression on the senses. Rajasic colours are bright, intense, artificial, clashing, and penetrating. Gentle stimulation of rajas guna can be provided when desired by the use of yellow, orange, red and purple. Their excessive use may over-stimulate the mind and senses. Dull, dark, and murky colours are tamasic and devoid of energy. They have a dulling effect on the mind and senses.
It is increasingly recognized that full-spectrum light in a work environment promotes cheerfulness and improves efficiency. Thoughtfully chosen decorator colours have similar effects.
White is cooling, moist, and nurturing. It has a mild cleansing effect, calms the mind and emotions, and imparts vitality. Excessive use of white can diminish energy and cause a person to become too passive.
Black can have suppressive influence, although when appropriately used with clothing or decorative objects in harmony with other colours it can reveal a sense of one’s dignity and demonstrate originality. Morbid preoccupation with black, or other dark or drab colours, can indicate moodiness, mental depression, or a psychological disorder. Certain shades of dark blue are referred to by some artists as “the blue of madness” because a few famous painters who were believed to be psychotic were fond of using them.
Grey, a combination of white and black, is neutral.
Green is neutral, calming, and moistening. It can be used to neutralizing excess mental and emotional “hotness” and balance metabolic processes.
Red stimulates. In milder shades, it can energize and strengthen. In excess, it can provoke anger and a tendency toward violence. It increases pitta influences and decreases vata and kapha influences.
Blue is calming and inspires detachment. It is said to nurture solitude and meditation. Dark or sky blue is cold and dry. Lighter blue, with white, is moistening. It can be used to neutralize hot mental and emotional states. Light blue, white, and gold are good colours for a meditation chapel or for one’s private meditation sanctuary. These colours strengthen sattvic influences.
Yellow is warm and moistening. It is energizing and nurtures happiness and creativity. If used excessively when vata is aggravated, it can nurture behaviours which are superficial and assertive.
Gold harmonizes mental activities and strengthens the heart, circulatory system, glands, and immune system. It nurtures spiritual aspiration.
warm, energizing, and nurtures intelligence and spiritual awareness.
Brown is stabilizing and neutral.
For strengthening, weakening, or balancing the influences of the three doshas as they relate to your basic mind-body constitution, the following recommendations for colour usage can be considered.
Warm, moist, soft, and calming colours are advised to balance vata dosha. These could be the warm colours of gold, red, orange, and yellow along with moist and calm colours such as white or light shades of blue or green. Bright colours may aggravate or strengthen vata characteristics; strong colours may be too stimulating; grey, black, and murky brown may be devitalizing, although in moderation they may have a stabilizing influence.
Cool, mild, and calming colours such as white, green, and blue are advised to balance pitta dosha. Colours that are hot and stimulating should be used only infrequently. Mild shades of colours are best, as bright colours of all kinds can be disturbing.
Warm, dry, and mildly stimulating colours such as red, orange, yellow, and gold are advised for balancing kapha dosha. Excessive use of white or pastel blues and greens should be avoided. Brighter colours are better.
Almost everyone has a mixture of dosha influences in their mind-body constitution and suitable colours can be chosen accordingly.

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
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
c.. emotional health
f.. health issues
g.. self-esteem and power
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.
"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.
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
"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
"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.
"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
