A crystal grid is a layout of crystals placed around a person, (in which you want to affect a change), or a place, (in which you want to maintain a vibration). You might place a grid around a person for healing or protection. Grids can be placed around a room, a house, or property, for energy amplification, protection, positivity and shielding. Pets and plants may also benefit from crystal grids. Crystals are placed in a specific pattern

Question and Answer: Working With Crystals Using Positive Intent Without Permission?

I received this question just after answering the last question, and immediately one of my crystal Guides (name: “Cassandra”, who comes through with a heavy Spanish-sounding accent) has stepped in to answer the question. I am honored and blessed! QUESTION: I understand what you said about crystal energy being too high to be able to be used by someone with negative intent. But can it be used to help guide someone in positive ways? For

Question and Answer: Are There Any Negative Crystals/Gemstones

Crystal Q and A!! If you have a crystal question, post it below and I will do my best to get you an answer! Here’s one I received recently: QUESTION: I’ve noticed in my limited research of the stones that have passed through my life over the years that nearly everything has some sort of metaphysical property… healing, protection etc. Based off of color, composition etc. I’ve noticed however that all stones that I’ve come

A Word from Crystal Guide, Venus, on Charging Crystals

This is a question a person asked about charging. I have posted Venus’s reply before, but here it is with less Genn, more Venus. First, the question: What do I need to do to charge or recharge my crystals? Do I need to put them in the sun…which is kind of hard where I live because I am gone most of the day & I do not leave my drapes open while I am gone.

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

GENN’S NEW BOOK IS READY ! CRYSTAL MANDALAS: Anatomy & Physiology of Quartz Crystals (Volumes 1 – 4) COLORING BOOKS!

Well, you might have noticed I have been a little quiet lately. I’ve been madly working on finishing my latest series of books. They are currently at the printer and will arrive next week! I wanted to get them finished for a workshop I will be teaching in Fayetteville (Arkansas) for the Ozark Research Institute’s 28th Annual Dowsing & Alternative Health Convention on April 15th through 18th.

I started picking up rocks with my Granny on our summer vacations to Crescent City, California. We would pick up the agate on the beach. Sometimes we would lay in the pebbles and sift through them, holding them up to the sunlight to see which were most translucent. The top layer, dried by the sun, (which beckoned us to sit and dig) was deceptive. The sea water would seep up from the under layer and soak

QUESTIONS FOR THE CRYSTAL PEOPLE: Can crystals be used to guide others without their consent?

I received this question, and immediately one of my crystal Guides, (not Venus), who comes through with a heavy accent has stepped in to answer the question. When I inquired as to why there is an accent associated with her answers, she said “because it is easier for you to determine that the answers are coming from us if we answer with an accent.” However the answers come, I am both honored and blessed!

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

Clearing a Crystal for Re-Programming; Why, When and How to Clear

I’ve had a few questions recently about clearing crystals; why to clear them, when, and how. Even though I have covered this topic, it hasn’t had a post all its own, so we’ll just revisit this extremely easy but very important topic. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO “CLEAR” A CRYSTAL? I would compare clearing a crystal to the deleting of erasable files on your computer. It still works just as it did, anything saved to
