    Do I Need to be Certified to be a Crystal Healer?

    Do I Need to be Certified to be a Crystal Healer?

    It's perfectly natural to wonder, well, do I need a certification to learn about crystals? And the answer might surprise you.

    The answer is, no. I don't think that you need to have a certification to learn about crystal healing. In fact, your own journey, learning about crystals is more than valid. It's so empowering, right? When I first started working with my crystals, I had no plans to do this work professionally. It was all for my own personal growth, part of my spiritual work and spiritual practice and it's something that was really enriching in my life and brought me a lot of joy.


    I encourage you to get out there and learn all you can from reading books, blog posts or articles online. Also, watching YouTube videos, and first and foremost, hands-on experiential practice with your crystals. In terms of whether or not you need a certification, you absolutely don't, and self-study is a perfectly reasonable pathway to enhancing your knowledge. However, I will say from my own personal experience, when I was working with my crystals by myself, I ran into a lot of hurdles and obstacles that sort of set me back on my path.





    I found a lot of conflicting information. I didn't have many people to turn to and ask questions and get support about things that I was experiencing when I was working with my crystals. It was a huge hurdle for me. A big obstacle and I couldn't figure it out on my own.







    I needed more mentorship and guidance from people who had been there before me, who could pass on that knowledge, but also from a community of my peers who I could talk about things with. So for that reason, you might be interested in pursuing certification, not even necessarily for the certificate itself, although we'll get to that later, but just for your own personal fulfillment. There's something about my way of teaching I am really good at, and one of my gifts is taking complex subjects and breaking them down so that they're really easy to understand. I hear this from my students all the time, and it's something that I feel so passionate about.







    I have the ability to share all these ideas that I've learned in over 20 years of learning about crystals and I want to be able to share all of that knowledge with you in a way that makes sense.

    In my CCH Program, we focus on building your foundational knowledge first through understanding the science of crystals. Plus how and why they're thought to work for healing and then we go from there. Focusing more on the spiritual side of things. This is really important to have a blending of both of these perspectives and when you're learning something on your own, you don't know what you don't know, right?

    There's many pieces of the puzzle that you miss or overlook or you aren't exposed to. I really try and give a super comprehensive crystal education in my a href="https://crystalhealerschool.

Some First Nations tribes, such as the Dine, consider it an especially holy stone, and it is incorporated into their symbolic and spiritual cultural practices. For example, Turquoise Boy and Turquoise Girl are said to be magical people who reside in the mountain and help the Dine people.

    An Introduction to Sacred Geometry

    An Introduction to Sacred Geometry

    Sacred Geometry describes the concept that there are certain geometric patterns found in nature that give shape and form to everything in the Universe.

    Sacred Geometry is an extremely complicated, detailed subject that's hard to deal with in an article of any kind of reasonable length. Hopefully, the information below will explain enough about shapes and their symbolism to help you put sacred geometry to use in your everyday life: for meditation, making crystal grids, sacred art, etc. If you really want to get into detail about the theory behind this, you might want to check out The Sacred Geometry Movie from Spirit Science.



    Just as mathematics is the foundation of all science, a special kind of math is the foundation of all metaphysics. Sacred geometry springs from the examination of patterns and relationships found in nature. On the surface that may sound a little dry. However, when we look at how basic lines and curves come together to form the universe, it's like taking a wonderful look into the mind of creation. Because while all matter is made from elements, it's the patterns that give matter form, purpose, and astounding diversity.

    For example, Calcite, aragonite and seashells are all made of the same thing: calcium carbonate (CaCO3) The earth forms this material into calcite, usually in squarish blocks, directly through geological processes. Sea creatures also take up CaCO3 and, with the help of patterns recorded in their DNA, they reform it into shells. Eventually, these shells decompose, returning their CaCO3 to earth as aragonite, a mineral with its own distinctive shapes. So aragonite and calcite are the exact same material, but each has its own unique structure. In other words, they are all the same substance; only the pattern is different.

    Flower of Life

    The Fibonacci spiral and many other forms and patterns we talk about in sacred geometry arise from the Flower of Life, which is seen as the basis for all other patterns in the universe. This shape, along with many others derived from it, play a key role in Kabbalah (a mystical tradition within Judaism), though many of the shapes also have significance in other cultures across the globe. The study of sacred geometry begins by drawing circles:

    Two intersecting circles form the vesica piscis (meaning fish bladder or vessel of the fish), seen also in the chalice well symbol. Some see this symbol as feminine or as a symbol of the Mother Goddess as its center is similar to the shape of a vulva.

    Where three circles intersect, we see the triquetra, a symbol of sacred trinities (like the three realms of land, sea, and sky; or as a representation of body, mind, and spirit).

    The seed of life is also called the genesis pattern, where six intersecting circles signify the six stages of creation.

    The egg of life takes the Seed of Life into three dimensions, with eight non-intersecting spheres, and can represent the cell division of an embryo.

    The flower of life is made of 19 intersecting circles within the boundary of a larger circle. It's said that all other sacred patterns can be found within it.

    In Metatron's cube, lines connect the centers of the circles in the fruit of life. The lines are said to represent masculine energy while the circles represent feminine energy, so this pattern combines polarities into a unified creation.

    Amethyst Lore:

    Amethyst is a variety of quartz that ranges in color from the lightest lilac to a deep violet.  It’s been considered a protective, healing stone from the earliest times.  In fact, even its name refers to one of its ancient protective functions:  a (anti-) + methustos (intoxicated).  Wine taken from an amethyst cup, it was said, would never make you drunk!  A possible mechanism for this:  the host may have disguised the fact that they’d watered down the wine by pouring it into a deep purple cup.  

    Amethyst has kept its association with virtue through time, protecting one’s better nature against temptation.  In fact,

    Why am I Drawn to Some Crystals More than Others?

    Why am I Drawn to Some Crystals More than Others?

    Ever felt mysteriously drawn to a certain crystal or stone? It’s HIGHLY likely that the crystal you're feeling drawn to represents an energy that you need in your life right now.

    There’s a wonderful quote by the Persian poet and scholar, Rumi, that says, “What you seek, is seeking you.” In my experience of working with people and crystals, I’ve observed this to be true time and time again.  

    When there's something in your life that feels like it's missing or something that really needs your focus and attention, then often there's a special stone that draws you in...almost calling to you, to support you in this work.  If you’re seeking to heal or balance some aspect of your life, a helpful crystal companion will often appear at just the right time - showing you the path to transformation and wholeness. These crystals often come into your life to help you create rapid shifts in your well-being.

    For example, for the first many years of my crystal journey, I just didn't seem to connect with Rose Quartz at all. It's not that I disliked the stone, it just didn't really capture my attention and I thought it was a little boring. But after my grandmother passed away and I was processing a lot of grief and deeply missing her, I found myself drawn to Rose Quartz like a magnet. There was something so soothing and supportive about its energy and I connected with it in a very deep and meaningful way. I didn't understand for a few weeks why it had suddenly captured my attention, but then I realized how much I was missing my grandma - her support, compassion, love, and care - and Rose Quartz came to my aid to help comfort and soothe me during a very difficult time.

    I often hear from people who have had these experiences and then later feel sad when their crystal “doesn’t feel how it used to” or they feel like they just "don’t connect with the stone the same way.”

    Does this sound familiar?

    Well, in my experience, that’s because once the stone has done its job and the energy is no longer needed by you in the same way it was before, your connection to the stone (that feeling of being called to or drawn in by its energy) feels different.  It may even feel like the connection no longer exists at all. 

    But don’t worry!  This is a GOOD thing.


    Feeling like this means most likely means that you’ve transformed and re-aligned the part of you that REALLY needed the supportive energy that the crystal was offering you. Now that you've created the needed shift, your crystal is either ready to do its thing all over again or to take a little rest.

    I realized after working with Rose Quartz over the course of a few months, that a time came when I just didn't feel as called to work with it as I had in the past. I was still very much grieving the loss of my grandma, but Rose Quartz had been such a helpful ally that it really helped me work through some of the toughest times. It became clear that I didn't need that same level of support anymore and it was ok to let go of my connection to my Rose Quartz companions. This didn't mean that my relationship with these stones was over because I knew I could always return to them if I found myself needing their support again.

    So what should you do with your stones once the connection fades?

    If you do still feel connected to the stone, even if it wasn’t as strong as when you were going through your big transformation, then you can hang onto it and keep it in your crystal healing toolkit.

    Lughnasadh & the Wheel of the Year

    Lughnasadh & the Wheel of the Year

    One way that I like to connect with Lughnasadh, the seasons, and the cycles of the earth is by tuning into The Wheel of the Year.

    This is a relatively new practice for me, but I'm finding the journey into exploring this way of being in flow with the seasons to be an enjoyable one!

    Read on to discover how you can connect more deeply with the earth's natural cycles in your spiritual practice...

    The Wheel of the Year can help you tune into natural cycles and helps you internalize these outward changes in nature as reflections of the growth and evolution you experience in your own life. Living in harmony with the seasons and the ebb and flow of nature helps you to lead a more soulful life and to cultivate a deeper understanding of yourself on a soul level. The Wheel of the Year helps you recognize who you are and your role in the world around you.

    Set up your Lughnasadh Altar with me!


    So what is the Wheel of the Year?

    Separated into 8 main holidays, the Wheel of the Year represents seasonal cycles that focus on the 4 Solar Holidays of the year (also known as the quarter days). This stems from the Anglo-Saxon cultural observations of the solstices and equinoxes, with the addition of the 4 Gaelic, agrarian, seasonal celebrations (the mid-points between the solar holidays known as the lunar cross-quarter days or fire festivals).

    Although some of the holidays observed in the Wheel of the Year are quite old, The Wheel of the Year as a whole is fairly modern (being developed in the late 1950s). Though I don't personally follow the tradition that created the contemporary Wheel of the Year, I find it a helpful way to think about the passage of time and what's happening at each time of year.

    I tend to identify more with the Gaelic Cross-Quarter Days, like Lughnasadh, as they stem from my ancestral heritage, than I do with the Anglo-Saxon solstices and equinoxes, but I do find value in these quarter days because they more closely align with the seasons as I observe them where I live in  Wisconsin. For this reason, these seasonal markers are important for helping me feel connected to what’s happening in nature all year long, while the cross-quarter days hold more spiritual significance for me in other ways.

    An Introduction to Lughnasadh:

    Lughnasadh is the third of the cross-quarter days, which marks the first harvest (and is the mid-point between Litha, the Summer Solstice, and Mabon, the Autumn Equinox). It is commonly celebrated on August 1st each year here in the northern hemisphere (or on February 1st in the southern hemisphere), but it may be celebrated between July 31st to August 2nd. Lughnasadh is the time of the first major harvest of the year of 3 in total - the second being Mabon at the autumnal equinox, and the final harvest being Samhain. It is also sometimes known as Lammas in the modern Pagan calendar.

    Lughnasadh Crystals:

    Green Aventurine

    Red Calcite

    Black Onyx

    Yellow Aventurine

    Rutilated Smoky Quartz




    Mahogany Obsidian
