So over the years my stress has shown up in various places of the body. This time it's been stressing out my neck. This morning I decided to program a piece of Moonstone to alleviate the stress and it has helped tremendously. Placing the cool, calming yin crystal over my neck seemed to melt away the blockages. I will definitely be returning to Moonstone for this particular dis-ease!

CRYSTALS: Protect Healer

QUESTION: Sheila, I hope maybe you or your Mom may have an answer for this: I use energy to help heal myself and others around me. Many times, the healings are at a time when I don't have any crystals on me, and usually distance healings. I don't carry crystals all the time, however I do completely believe in their individual healing properties. My situation is that after a healing, occaisionally I will be very tired and/or ill for a few hours. I know that, as a young person, I was always an empathetic being and emotions and physical issues of others seem to transfer to me. I try to set my intention that, when healing, the healing will be focused and that I will not absorb any of the energy that is not beneficial to me, however, am I missing a step?

Is there a mantra/meditation I should use prior to healing?

Thank you so much for all that you do and give.

ANSWER: Thanks for your question. I felt the same way as you when I first started doing healing sessions for others. I also set my intention, but I forgot to wear my Rainbow Obsidian for protection and i was feeling weak for several days afterwards. After I started to wear my Rainbow Obsidian for protection I felt energized and ready to go! So personally I like to use crystals for healing. I have not tried to do healings just with my thoughts, but if your mind is strong enough of course all you need is your positive intentions. That is the ideal situation. However, if we are not as strong in our own minds, we use the energy of crystals to direct our intentions, thus strengthening our resolve and protective energies around us.

I am sure there are many mantras or protective thoughts you can say when you are without crystals, but for me personally I have not tried them, so I would not be able to advise you in these matters. For me it is easier to work with crystals as it combines the physical and non-physical aspects of energy in healing.

You are more than welcome to email my mother as she also teaches Reiki and other non-crystal healing methods that she may have better advice for you!

ANN'S ANSWER: Hello, I have been telling the students that the mind is the most powerful thing above and beyond everything else. The only tricky part is how to utilize our mind to it fullest. Human is bounded with a physical limitation since most of us still vibrate at the 3rd dimension frequency and some of us are in and out from 3rd dimension to 4th dimension. A few of us are living in the 4th dimension (such as Saints, Yogis etc..)

Good news is that since we are going through "the shift" and starting to connect more with the high vibration, we can use more of our mind to control our bodies much better if we choose to do so.

In conclusion, to be on the safe side, I would recommend seeking help from crystals for protection or other tools that produce the high energy.

Matras and medition are certainly help clearing the negative energy. I myself do not use any mantras but loving heart will do!

I will keep you on our mailing list. I conduct a regular guided meditation on Tuesday at 7:00pm at my condo in Yorba Linda, California. You are welcome to join us if you get a chance. I teach classes at home once in a while and will keep you informed.

Gift of Being

We also repeat the social history of man from a caveman-like infancy to a tribal childhood to adolescence (“First Maturity)”and finally becoming a full member of society.

But there is one more step we often miss out on, called “Second Maturity”. This is our emergence into full citizenship in the Universe.

QUESTION: Hi Sheila, I suffer with Asthma and cannot afford medical treatment. I use Inhalers. What Crystal can I use to help control my Asthma? Please help. Thank you.

ANSWER: I would highly suggest Rose Quartz and Apophyllite for helping to relieve your ashthma. Having an Apophyllite cluster by your bedside and Rose Quartz tumbled stones or raw pieces placed on the body has been known to be a great healer.

QUESTION: Hi Sheila, Thank you for the reply about my Asthma. I brought a cluster of Apophylite today. I will cleanse the crystal. Do I program it for healing my Asthma. Can I sleep with Rose Quartz under my pillow and on my body each night. My Asthma is worse at night and this is when the attacks happen.

Thank You for your help.
Kind Regards

ANSWER: Hello again! Yes, you definitely want to program all of your crystals with your intent. Thoughts are the most powerful form of energy. Activating the crystal with your thought will help to focus it on what you want to heal. In your case, you definitely want to clean, charge and program your crystal specifically for Asthma.

You can sleep with your Rose Quartz under your pillow every night. Once in a while, as you feel the energy drain, you will want to recharge it (crystals can lose energy like a battery!). Place it in a pouch and inside of your pillowcase so it does not fall out at night!

The Apophyllite cluster is perfect to have at your bedside programmed for Asthma.
