I am constantly being asked:
Why do you say 1 thing about a crystal while a book or another teacher may say something completely different?
Even the books sometimes conflict in the info they’re giving out.
The fact is that, YES…many crystal books tell us totally different things about the properties of crystals.
So how the heck do we know which ones to go by?
Sifting & Filtering
Chick Pea, please be prepared to sift through tons of random or conflicting info (or even completely bunk internet info with no credibility).
Remember to always consider your source!…the Internet is like the Wild West and ANYONE can say ANYTHING they want without any policing. It’s up to you to not just swallow everything thrown at you hook, line & sinker just b/c someone said it.
You need to do your own research, your own due diligence & then run it through your own intuitive filter.
Does this info resonate for you? Yeah, even the shizzle I’m teaching you…do the same. I don’t care WHO it is that you’re getting the info from.
Over the years, I have spent quite a bit of time & energy doing this for myself. I had to learn from trial & error (over many years) what was bunk info or just wasn’t going to work for me.
And bear in mind, that was eons ago when there was a lot less info out there than there is now. 😉
Crystal info was harder to come by on the Internet. I’m talkin’ about the days of AOL and then MySpace….heeee…remember that?
Also, be prepared to spend lots of time experimenting & researching on your own. You’ve got to be prepared to invest the resources to do this: time, energy & possibly funds too.
I did it.
Still do it…but that’s what I do.
And I’m happy to do it. Over the Moon actually!
I’m not going to sit here & tell you that this part is easy. It’s not.
It’s difficult for someone to:
- sift through the crystal myths & facts
- then figure out what resonates for you; what rings true for your inner knowing
- & then decide who to rely on for your sparkly info so you can move forward & apply it.
Bad news is; no one can do that part for you, Crystal Hottie. You have to do it for yourself.
Good News! Once you’ve invested the time in doing that, then you can rely on your chosen source for your info & there are some short cuts to be had (b/c your carefully chosen reliable source has already done some of the leg work for you). Then you can move along a bit faster with your crystal education…if you’d like to.
Please be prepared that you may possibly waste time on crystal healing teachings & methods that may or may not work for you. No way to know until you try them out for yourself.
It’s not to say that this information is incorrect or full on BS. That’s not what I’m saying at all.
You just need to proceed cautiously to learn what is correct for YOU.
I’ve found most of the free internet info is based on regurgitated book info. Not all…but most. And then it sort of becomes like a game of telephone; where by the time the message goes through a few reiterations it’s so damn distorted it’s nothing like the original message that was conveyed. Sheeesh!
As for crystal books, most of the book-info out there is based on either general properties that have been passed down from ancient info (that applies to MOST of the population) OR it was channeled by the author or received in a meditation or even by doing their own personal work with the crystal, thereby making that info personal to them.
Can you now see why I feel it’s so important to go with your own personal intuition for your own personal crystal use?
My Crystal Book Reco’s
BTW…I’ve read just about every crystal book out there!
I’ve taken the time, energy & money to curate your must-have list of the best most effective Creme de la creme books & resources with accurate scientific info.
PLEASE NOTE: Yes, there may be some VERY POPULAR crystal books that seem quite obviously absent from my list & there’s a very good reason for that. They simply didn’t meet my criteria. Either there was conflicting confusing information, inaccurate scientific data or it simply didn’t resonate with my inner knowing.
So please don’t ask me why I didn’t include so & so’s super popular book. Thanks! 😉
You don’t need to agree with my list, but I want to put this out there again b/c so many often ask for my recommendations. This is an older blog/video…my recommendations have not changed (like the highly evolved shark of the ocean, perfect in its design so no need to change).
Yes, I’m really confident recommending that list to you. 🙂
Have you read any of my book recommendations? Do you agree or disagree? Tell me in the comments below.
Crystal Blessings & Happy Researching!
P.S. If what & the way I teach resonates with you, maybe you’d like to join me in my Certified Crystal Healer Course. If that sounds like something you may be interested in you can get on my Wait List here so you’ll get first notice of the next time I open the course.
