I’ve had this question more than once, so thought I would address it here… What do you do when you buy a crystal online, but when it arrives, it is much smaller than you expected? Will it still work? Obviously if you are looking for a crystal for jewelry or to fit in a certain place (say a desk or coffee table), size might matter. In this way, convenience and use play a part in


Healing grids obviously are different than home or property grids, but they work the same way. First, you select the crystals you would like to help you in your healing session. Do this either by pure intuition or by the configuration of the crystal. What I mean by this, is you may use any type of crystal you have available, programmed for the purpose of healing, or you may use specific types of configurations (eg: Golden


Permanent grids versus temporary grids are also a determining factor in crystal choice. TEMPORARY CRYSTAL GRIDS In a temporary grid it is ok to use crystals that you might want to use later for something else. For example the ten-inch optically clear Channeler I mentioned in my last post might be perfect for use in a temporary grid. Another example of a temporary grid might be one you place around a person during a healing session. Temporary grids are meant to be

An Example of How to Work With a Particular Crystal

I got a question today from a friend about a new crystal they adopted. They told me their Higher Self asked them to buy this crystal to help with their channeling and wondered if I had any tips. As I was composing the email, I decided that the information might be helpful to others, so I turned the reply into a blog post. I hope you find this helpful. Anyway…. following is what I had

How Do You Store, Display, and Enjoy All Your Crystals?

Last week I asked you for your questions, and this was one of the really good ones. Good friend and fellow crystal lover, Melinda, said, “How do you store, display, and enjoy all of your crystals? Do you have them on tables, shelves, in divided containers (cosmetic)? I have seen that some people keep stones in a divided tool upright container (for workshop nuts and bolts and stuff), but this won’t work for me. I love having them


Last week we covered part one of A Comprehensive Look at Programming where we covered what it is and why to do it. We’re going to pick right up where we left off last week with actually programming a crystal. If you read the post last week, I suggested you think of a basic (simple) program you might like to try and to find the crystal friend to help you. Once you have chosen the

A COMPREHENSIVE LOOK AT PROGRAMMING CRYSTALS (Part 1 of 2) What is it and Why to do it

In the last post we talked about charging your crystals. I hope you were able to pull in some full moon energy and give your crystals some much needed attention, rest, and rejuvenation. This week we’re going to revisit programming since it is a natural followup to charging. It’s a big topic so I’m splitting it into two parts. This week we’ll cover what programming is, what it ISN’T and why do it. Next week we’ll

LEMURIAN SEED CRYSTALS – Crystals “Seeded” by Past Civilizations

This week we’re going to discuss Lemurian Seed crystals. They sometimes are similar in shape to Laser Wands, and indeed, some Lemurian Seed crystals ARE Laser Wands. As a reminder of what Laser Wands here, follow this link to a post on that subject. Though Lemurian Seed crystals are sometimes in the shape of Laser wands, (a thicker base which tapers to a very small terminating end) they do differ in a few very different ways,

ARTEMIS or CANDLE Crystal – Speed Energy To Its Goal

This week we’re going to talk about Artemis or Candle crystals, which are long thin points with a 6 to 1 ratio (for example: 1 inch wide and 6 inches long, or 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long, ETC). This is a potentially confusing topic, so I hope this post helps clarify rather than muddy the water. Candle crystals should not be confused with Candle Quartz. Candle Quartz is a crystal which looks a lot

ENHYDRO CRYSTALS – Forbidden Knowledge, Excited Possibility, Magic!

This week we’re going to revisit Enhydro crystals. I LOVE Enhydro crystals! There are many different thoughts about the properties of Enhydro quartz but they mostly boil down to knowledge, possibility and magic. We’ll get to that later in the post. First, let’s talk about what they are. Enhydros are crystals with fluid inside them. The only way to know for CERTAIN if you have an Enhydro (if there is water or fluid present) is
