I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

The Historical Background of Crystals

For centuries man has revered crystals not just for their beauty and economic value but as healing tools. the healing power of Crystals dates back to 1600 BC by the Egyptians where the practice of placing or wearing of the stones on various parts of the body was an early practiced ritual. In these ancient times it was popular to pulverise the gems, mix the powder with water and then drink the liquid.

The Egyptian priests used Crystal energy for healing and power. the Aztecs and the Incas, used semi-precious stones as a means for 'divination', however the use of crystals was a skill which vanished through the ages and has only recently began to appear again.

Astrologically crystals play an important part of our lives, you will no doubt be aware of the semi-precious/precious stones that is associated with birthdates.

Even there are references in the New Testament (Revelations Chapt. 21 v 18) and the Old Testament (Exodus Chapt 28 v 17-20)

So Crystal Healing Just What is it?

Firstly 'Healing' means not just the symptom that the client presents with, but the whole body. By healing you will not just be treating the physical body, but also the Spiritual Body i.e. the Chakras and Auric Field.

Healing does not begin in the physical body but in the Subtle body of which the physical body is just a reflection. In crystal healing, the healing involves more than just consulting a long list of the various crystals, finding out which one to use for a specific ailment then placing the crystal on the body. this is where intuition of the healer plays an important role.

So what is Intuition? 

Intuition is not about seeing, it is about sensing and feeling, it is a deep desire that you know what is right.

In crystal healing intuition is an integral part of the therapy, knowledge of the various therapeutic aspects is not enough. If the crystal 'feels wrong' then it is wrong.

What are subtle bodies?

Subtle bodies are part of the Human energy field, which includies the 'aura' , the 'chakras' and the 'meridians'.

Throughout history the idea has been well documented that 'Universal Energy' pervades all of nature, i.e. the Indian spiritual tradition of 'Prana', the ancient Chinese 'Chi' and in Christian religious paintings indicating a 'field of light' surrounding Jesus and other religious figures.

More recently scientific and technological research from Holographic patterning through 'Kirlan photography' to diferent types of scanning have observed the 'Human Energy field' in a concrete physical way. It validates the concept that all matter is 'Energy' and forms the basis for understanding how human beings can be considered dynamic energetic systems

Humans are beings of energy, the solid nature of physical mater is a perception of our physical senses. Humans can thus be viewed as networks of complex energy fields that inteface with physical and cellular systems.

The Chakras

The word chakra comes from the ancient sanskrit language meaning 'wheels' and the resemble whirling vortices of subtle energies and are involved in accessing 'Universal Energy' to a utilisable form within the human structure. The chakra system functions as energy transformers thus stepping down energy from a higher frequency to a lower level of energy. this energy is the translated into hormonal and physiological system to bring about cellular changes throughout the body.

The location of the 7 major chakras associated with the physical body correspond with the major nerve plexuses. The swirling vortex motion of teh chakras entrain or suck in energy from the 'Universal Energy' field for distribution throughout the body. As well as anatomically each chakra being asociated with major nerve plexus each chakra is associated with a major endocrine gland and each chakra is situates in a vertical line ascending from the base of the spine to the head.

Energy of a higher frequency is translated by the chakras into glandular hormonal output which then affects the entire physical body. They are also interconnected with the Nervous system and affect the functioning of neural transmission with in the Central Nervous System and the Peripheral Nervous System. Illness in the system can be said to be caused by an imblance of energy, therefore a lack of energy flow through the system tends to lead to disease.

The Meridians

The energy flow from the subtle body is taken further into the physical body by means of the Meridian System and this sytem forms the basis of Oriental medicine. The Merdian sytstem is complex like the Chakra system but briefly there are 26 meridians each having the name of the organ system of the body through which the meridian runs. They are devided into 'Yang' (positive) and 'Yin' (negative) in so that Yin meridians flow up the front of the body from the earth and Yang meridians from down the back of the body from the 'Heavens'. Like the chakra system malfuntion, tension, disease result from an imbalnce in the energy distribution along the particular meridian.

Holistic Theory

In order to bring back the balance of health it is necessary to treat the person as a whole, Mind, Body and Spirit as in this theory illness is caused by an imbalance between these aspects, unlike convention medicine where upon only the part of the body that is showing or feeling pain is treated.


Healing involves energy, this energy is passed to the client from the healer or from a healing source and in 'Crystal Healing" the 'source' is the crystal to the client. Emotional healing or comfort is probably the easiest to explain simply by talking to someone, by showing empathy, understanding , compassion and kindness this can instigate the healing process by bringing calmness and peace.

The Role of Crystals

Crystals are ideal as an energy source as they are capable of healing with energies from the lowest, such as electricity to the highest forms such as the subtle spiritual energies.

Crystals are the purest form of matter, each containing Universal Energy.

Crystal Healing is a very individual therapy, some healers use it as an ajunct to other therapies such as Reiki or Reflexology. Others use the crystals to dowse to find where in the body imbalnces may be found. Generally after this intial procedure of dowsing a crystal layout will be followed, where various crystals ,will be used intuitively, and placed in a cetain order around the client.

Crystals also have a role in the home, office and therapy room they can be used to 'mop up' negative energy as a means to protect the occupants from picking up negative energy from the environment, through the transmission of harmful unseen elecrical fields given off by computers, televisions and mobile phones etc.

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
