QUESTION: Which crystal will you recommend to shield EMF's?

ANSWER: Thank you for your question. By EMF, I assume you mean the electromagnetic field, and the radiation that comes from the interaction of electric and magnetic fields. Sources include power lines, electric appliances, radio waves, microwaves, computers, cell phones, etc. This is also called electromagnetic radiation.

The crystal I like to use near my computer is a large purple Lepidolite Crystal. I also highly recommend people wear or have by them Smoky Quartz. If your cell phone has a place you can put a charm, I'd recommend hanging a small Quartz crystal. All of these stones will help to keep your aura free from the effects of radiation.

CRYSTALS: Pendulums

QUESTION: Hello,I am curious about a dowsing pendulum and I see you have many different types. First time buyer and do not know which one to get as I will be doing alot of practicing. I only know Reiki and maybe will need some type of stone for it also.Would the crystal pendulum be best for me? Thank you.

ANSWER: Hi, thanks for your question. Yes, we have many different types of pendulums, and they are all for different healing energies. You can see brief descriptions of properties for the stones at:

So, it depends on what energy you want to work on. If you are unsure which one to start with, I would go with the clear Quartz, Rose Quartz or Amethyst pendulums, as these are good starter stones.

CRYSTALS: Clashing

Question: Do different crystal energies clash with each other or is it the programming of them that clash? I don’t think my rose quartz and my jade & quartz ring liked each other. I had the rose quartz necklace on and when I put on the ring, the ring felt sooo heavy! When I put the plain moss agate ring on, there was balance.

Answer: It's the programming of the crystals that can clash. It's the same energies that mess up our chakras. It's that energy of doubt and confusion that makes us unfocused. This usually does not happen, but in your case, I would suggest wearing one crystal at a time or programming the crystals towards a similar goal. For example, if you were programming your Rose Quartz for opening your Heart Chakra, you'll want to program your Jade ring to bring you luck in love. Or something along those lines!

CRYSTALS: Turquoise Nuggets


ANSWER: Hi, Turqoise comes in small raw nuggets so when they are tumbled, they put some stabilizing chemicals like resin or glue to hold it together, so the Natural form is better in this case for chakra work. Yes, none of these stones have been charged yet, so please do clean, charge and program them before use!

CRYSTALS: Temperature

QUESTION: I have a pocket comfort crystal. It is palm size made of smooth green jade. I like jade for its healing / energy qualities- "Jade is emotionally calming, relieving your stress during hectic times. It is a dream stone, helping you to recall and learn from dreams. Jade stimulates your heart and heart chakras, giving you love energy and the ability to heal yourself. It attract wealth and abundance in any area of life you desire, and brings great luck!" (idigcrystals ebay store). Those in bold are for the main reasons, which are related to my bipolar disorder and my experience at a class at Ann Satin's home. When I was diagnosed in the class by a fellow learning crystalologist and then by Ann it was discovered my heart chakra had blockage. Ann opened it some with a healing wand, but not completely. I have not been able to return since, so I acquired this crystal for some assurance. That was probably too much information.

The question is sometimes when I reach into my pocket to retrieve it the temperature is very warm. It is at times in the range of "hot." Is there an explanation for this? Is it the strength of the stone working with those areas of my being requiring stengthing? I usually place it on a my large quartz crystal for recharging weekly too! There doesn't seem to be any real ryhme or pattern detectable to me as yet either. Just a question of curiousity. O yeah, it did develop a crack, yet has never been dropped too!

Thank you for you time with this!

ANSWER: Hi, thanks for your questions. Like humans, crystals are made from a form of concentrated energy. This energy shifts as the conditions around the crystal shift. In this case, it's according to the surroundings and your own auric shifts. Your energy shifts when your mood does, and this can affect the crystal. As we know, crystals are often transmuting, deflecting, absorbing energies of our physical beings, therefore we are able to use them in healing. So in your case, it's a simple explanation of the crystal reacting to it's surroundings (aka: your aura conditions). The fact that you stated bipolar conditions, makes it all the more likely that your stones kept in your aura will have such dramatic shifts.

I would not be alarmed with this. It's a tribute to the mystical energy of stones. As has been noted in the past, we often find Garnet to steam when it senses great evil energies, Bloodstone to sacrifice its colors when it senses great weakness, Quartz becoming very hot when in the presence of active energy healing...
