This is Sweet Soul, Suzanna. She’s a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer & I’m so excited to have her post on the blog today. She has so much to say & show us!!
What brought you to the world of crystal healing?
I have been lovingly collecting crystals for as long as I can remember. It started with beach pebbles when I was a toddler and grew from there!
My beloved late Granddad was also a huge influence to me; growing up he would take me to metaphysical fairs and treat me to little tumbled stones which he’d present to me in small brown envelopes with the properties he’d hand-written on the front. I treasure these dearly and know that he would be extremely proud that I carried on my crystal journey.
What made you decide to become a Certified Crystal Healer?
The energies of crystals have always intrigued and excited me but other than sense their properties and admire their beauty, I’ve never known exactly what to do with them – until I took this course! Now I feel like all my life I’ve been collecting the tool kit and gaining the knowledge of how and why they work means I can progress to working with them to benefit myself and others.
What is your favorite crystal(s) & why?
Oh this is a tough question!
I find myself drawn to particular crystals at different times, depending on what I’m needing, but one crystal that I can never get enough of is moonstone. I was given my first piece in a pendant by my parents for my sixteenth birthday and I’ve loved it ever since. There is something ethereal and magical about moonstone and – besides being gorgeous – I feel it’s the perfect stone for women to bring balance and a sense of calm into their lives.
Amethyst and citrine are also dear to my heart because they are willing to help you with just about anything.
What do others in your life think about this path that you’re on?
My close friends and family have always been extremely supportive about my passion for stones as it’s been so entwined with my identity for as long as anyone can remember.
Embarking on this course has given me the opportunity to discuss my path with others who might not have known about it and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Many have been curious to learn more about crystal healing and what it entails and I’ve even been surprised to learn how into crystals some of my friends are when I never even knew!
What is something new that you’ve learned about crystals that you didn’t know before you took the course?
I have read so many wonderful books over the years about the properties of crystals but no where have I seen accessible information about how they work at a scientific level. Learning about the electromagnetic fields and vibrational frequencies of stones (and people!) has answered so many of my questions about what it is that I can actually feel and the science behind why crystals are so beneficial for healing was explained beautifully.
What was/is your favorite part of the whole experience so far?
The scientific explanations presented with the study material and the various sources they are derived from are by far the most valuable element of this course in my opinion as I am studying for a Bachelor of Science degree along with a Certificate of Contemporary Science.
Up until taking this course I’ve always found it hard to bridge the gap between a more alternative side of looking at things and what seemed like ‘cold hard’ science. This course has opened up a whole new way of syncing my spiritual side and my more logical mind together and has alerted me to the fact that science is just a rational explanation of the magic that we experience in the world!
What are your BIG DREAMS now that you have graduated?
My ultimate goal is to work with the energies of these gifts of mother earth to benefit others because I feel it is my calling and one that I feel truly blessed with the opportunity to pursue.
My next step on the crystal healing journey is to construct a website where people new to this wonderful world can come to learn more about the benefits of crystal healing. I have big plans for this online crystal haven and www.thecrystalnymph.com is due to launch at the end of the year! (bookmark it now!)
It’s so exciting that completing the course doesn’t mark the end of my crystal journey but the beginning of a more educated and richer experience and one that I hope can be shared with others.
Do you have any advice for anyone else who is considering this path?
If it’s something that you’re drawn to do and are able to explore – dive in!
Crystals are so much more than pretty ornaments; they have energy and soul just waiting to be tapped into.
My honest advice to anyone considering this path is this: invest in your knowledge. The more you learn the more value you will get out of working with your crystal collection. I’m so glad I took the plunge with this course, I’ve loved every moment of it and the knowledge I have gained has allowed me to finally unlock the true potential of my stones!
Enjoy your journey and wherever it leads you
