An “Ask Genn” Crystal Reading is a personal reading from the Crystal People, like a tarot reading via living crystal.

Ask Genn crystal readingIn an “Ask Genn” crystal reading, rather than using a tarot deck to determine the energies presented for your reading, I use the crystal chosen for you and read its unique characteristics.

While this may seem a little confusing at first blush, it actually is pretty straight-forward. I will detail the process further in the post.

In a nutshell, I enter a meditative state and connect with the crystal that was selected (more on the selection process coming up).

I make note of special characteristics such as type (e.g. Channeler), surface features (e.g. Record Keepers) and other defining features (e.g. Keys, Barnacles, Bridges, etc) present on the crystal.

I list and diagram these characteristics on the front of a 5.5″ x 8.5″ card.

This way, when you get the crystal home, you will know (for example): What are Barnacles? Where is the Key? Where are the Record Keepers? (etc)

Finally, I describe the characteristics in detail and add any messages received.

Read on to flesh out the details of this “Ask Genn” process.

All of the pictures you see in this post are from when I was hand-writing the “Ask Genn” reading. The cards you see are also smaller in size than what you receive currently.

Now I compose your reading in an Office document. Printed on standard sized card stock, it creates a 5.5″ wide x 8.5″ tall card.

By doing the reading in Office, I am able to include more information and it is easier to read.

Just as in the photos, there are drawings of the crystal from different angles. Diagrams point out the special features (characteristics and configurations).

These drawings and labels are not computerized, but are done by hand. They look the same as the readings in the photographs (with different crystals, of course).

I make detailed diagrams so you will know where each configuration is on your particular crystal when you get it home.

This way, if you aren’t sure where the configurations are on your crystal, there is a picture pointing out each, easily diagrammed.

By tuning into your energy signature, I ask the Crystal People to lead me to the crystal that is appropriate for you at this time.

The crystal selection itself is based on guidance I receive from the Crystal People as I look for your crystal.


Ask Genn crystal readingJust like with tarot readings, a crystal reading can help in different areas.

First, we’ll start with what it isn’t. An “Ask Genn” crystal reading isn’t a look into the future, it doesn’t foretell of deeds by a dark-haired maiden or give a timeline on which to gauge upcoming events.

An “Ask Genn” reading can give you insight to energies which might be presenting in your current situation.

Likewise, it might also show how circumstances in your past (or past lives) might be playing into your daily life or way of being.

Your reading might also suggest ways to tweak your current way of doing things to create a different outcome to an issue.

The crystal that presents for your reading often echos the energies with which you are currently working and might give you ideas on how to work more efficiently with these energies.


Ask Genn crystal readingFor instance, if your issue involves a friend, co-worker or loved-one, your crystal might present with a Bridge to help you find connection and perspective in your current situation.

If you are dealing with traumas or challenges, Rainbows and Mirror Fractures might be present in your reading to remind you of the beauty and depth our challenges bring.

If you have issue with self esteem or perfectionism, an Empathic crystal might present to remind you to love yourself unconditionally, “chips and all”.

These are just a few of the hundreds of possibilities that might present in your “Ask Genn” crystal reading.

Often there are many characteristics which present to help you shift your perspective on a certain situation.

Once you have your reading and see the possibilities, you can work with your crystal to achieve a better flow of energy for a more desirable outcome.

An “Ask Genn” crystal reading is more hands-on than a traditional tarot reading because you have the crystal to work with long after the reading has concluded.

In this way, you aren’t simply receiving a reading of the current energies, you are also given a way to work with and shift those energies to create a positive change.

The “Ask Genn” crystal reading is an incredibly specialized offer.

It is a personal reading from the Crystal People.

As I mentioned, similar to a Tarot reading, you are welcome to mention concerns or energies with which you may be working.

Conversely, if you don’t have a specific concern, you may choose to simply have the Crystal People give you whatever message presents.

If you decide to mention concerns or energies, you can enter them in the comments section of the shopping cart on checkout or send me a separate email.

I have had incredible feedback on the readings.

The Crystal People are very good at getting the message through to me that you need at the time.

It’s sometimes uncanny and always super fun!


Your part is done. I will find the crystal, do the reading and pack it all up and ship it to you.

    Genn truly is a crystal matchmaker. The energy and focus of the crystal I received is perfect for me. A lot of positive shifting has occurred during my meditation time with this crystal and it’s only been a week. It’s unlike any other crystal I have. That in itself is amazing. But, Genn also draws your crystal, shows what the major features are, explains them, and then does a crystal channeling. All of it was spot on without any information from me prior to the reading. A very strong message came through that was exactly what I needed to hear. It’s been an inspiring experience. Thank you for this amazing gift Genn.

    I recently had a crystal reading with Genn and WOW!! What an experience! Genn was guided to select a crystal for me – I was interested in seeing which crystal wanted to join me in this next step of my journey and I was curious to see what message it had to offer. Genn could not have chosen a more perfect one for me!! As soon as it arrived, I was blown away by how immediate and strong the connection was. I’ve had crystals in the past that held a special meaning for me but none have ever affected me as deeply as this one has. There is something extra special about this amazing crystal and I’m extremely grateful for Genn’s ability to connect us. The synchronistic messages that this crystal brought forth have been so deeply meaningful….and weeks later, the messages continue to unfold. The insights have been quite healing and it fills me with optimistic hope for what is to come. I cannot recommend this reading highly enough!! My wish would be for everyone to be able to experience a crystal reading from Genn. What an incredible experience!! Genn, thank you so much for offering such a special service!!

      Michelle, I’m so happy that your ask Genn crystal and reading resonated. By continuing to visit your reading and work with your crystal, you’re experiencing the reading exactly as it was intended. It will continue to unfold the layers of magic that are there for you! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Genn is thorough, intuitive, respectful (of crystals and clients) and reverant. Having read her book, I was still unprepared for the extensive, beautiful, artistic and insightful depth of this reading. Made aware by her book, I sat holding the crystal before even unwrapping it, feeling its energy and asking permission to unwrap and look at it. Even then, I did so in stages as I introduced myself and connected. What a powerful, joyful energy!!! I cannot begin to write all that I have gotten from the reading, but my book is already writing itself through me since receiving my new crystal friend, and I feel a confidence and joy that is remarkable. I also know now that I can connect with my off-world friends and family without fear of disconnecting here (which has long kept me from being less available to wisdom and love from my off-world family). I have even used the crystal in my sound energy work sessions with excellent results. I highly recommend these readings!

  4. James says:

    I was very pleased with the crystal reading that I had with Genn. I had her select the crystal, and the crystal she selected resonates very strongly with me. I found her insights very helpful. As I began to meditate with the crystal, and with the information in the reading as a jumping-off point, I began to get other insights myself. So I feel that the crystal and reading are a starting point for further meditation and understandings. The drawings of the crystal that accompany the reading are beautiful – like pieces of art themselves! I am extremely glad that I had a crystal reading with Genn and highly recommend it for anyone, especially those who love crystals!

    Great information on Genn’s crystal readings. It’s been a few years already but I had two of them done. The one crystal I picked and she sent the card full diagram and information. The other I gave her a dollar amount, and she worked with the crystal people to choose the right one as she was having issues picking it out herself LOL. Genn was guided to a big ol box sitting somewhere…she opened it to find ‘the crystal’…she was told yes this was the one. It’s a huge, bulky, beautiful, white 7″ long with a couple 2″ and 3″ babies growing on one side. She is the matriarch of the house since I received her. She grounds me when needed, like a mother hugging her child…the other one also nice sized is very mystical as well as lovely. Both were right on with the energies and issues I had going on, Large or small crystals, cheaper or more expensive, I can’t recommend enough that you give this a try…you won’t be sorry. Hugs Genn!!
