Crystal Healing for Hypnotherapists

Here are some questions and answers for a hypnotherapist delving into the realm of crystal healing.
Crystal Questions:

1)      What type of crystal would you recommend to helped facilitate a deeper hypnotic experience? And why?
I recommend using crystals that are vibrating at a very high frequency to facilitate deeper hypnotic experiences. Crystals that are in tune with the Crown and Third Eye chakras are particularly helpful in connecting with your subconscious mind. As a general rule, Crown chakra crystals are violet, clear or white and Third Eye Chakra stones are indigo, deep blue or purple. However, there are many exceptions to these color associations, depending on the crystal and its vibrations. When in doubt, consult a crystal healer or a crystal reference book!

As unique human beings, each one of us will react differently to the same crystal. I would recommend experimenting with different healing crystals until you find the right one for you. For myself, I like to take suggestions into account and then I see which crystal is the most attractive to me personally.

2)      What specific crystals would be normally used to facilitate a deeper hypnotic experience?

Crystals like Amethyst, Charoite, Quartz, Moldavite, Kyanite are all high frequency stones that are used to aid a deep meditative or hypnotic state.

These can be in any shape, as long as they are genuine, natural crystals. Bigger is better, but you have to find the right fit for the situation you are in. For example, if you are sitting in a chair going into a hypnotic state, you want to hold crystals that will fit comfortably in your hand. If you are lying down in a large room, you may want to have larger crystals placed around your body.

Here are some suggestions for meditation crystals which would also work for hypnotic experiences: http://www.idigcrystals.com/info/I_Dig_Crystals_Meditation_?ref=crystals%20for%20meditating
3)      Would you use crystals for other aspects of a participant’s hypnotic experience? If  yes, which specific ones and why?
Besides helping to induce a hypnotic experience, I can recommend some crystals that have been helpful for those doing past life regressions. Amber, Fossils and Serpentine are stones that have helped people in their past life regressions.

When coming out of the hypnotic state, I would recommend grounding stones - usually black or brown - like Rainbow Obsidian, Mocchi Balls and Black Tourmaline to help the energy bodies unite back on earth. Here are additional Grounding Stone recommendations: http://www.idigcrystals.com/info/I_Dig_Crystals_Grounding_Tutorial?ref=Grounding%20Crystals%20Suggestions  
4)      How does one use the crystal? i.e. would the participant
a)      Need to know that a crystal is being used?
The participant does not need to know that the crystal is being used, however it is more effective it they do, so they can align their thoughts to what energy the crystal is being focused upon. 
b)      Have to have it in close proximity to his/her body?
It is best for the crystals to touch the participant's body, so you can place it in their hands, on their chakras or lie it next to their bodies. They can also wear them as jewelry. However, as long as it is within their aura (or energy body within 3 feet of their physical body), the crystal will be vibrating in their space. 
c)       Hold it?
Holding the crystal is very effective. Crystals healing is like all other forms of energy healing, however, many prefer it because it unites the physical form of the crystal with the energetic form of healing. For those of us who like something tangible to focus on when doing energy healing, we appreciate holding crystals. 
d)      Focus attention on it?
When using crystals, it is most effective to have them clean, charged and programmed. There are a variety of ways to clean and charge the crystals, which you can read more about here: http://www.idigcrystals.com/info/Crystal_Care. You want to make sure to have cleaned crystals between hypnosis participants.

Programming the crystal puts the intent and focus into the crystal's energy field. It is most effective if the participant programs the crystal themselves so their minds can align to the programming in their own words. Here is one way to program crystals:

How Do I Program My Crystals?
Intuition is your sixth sense, a knowing that goes beyond the confines of your everyday mind. Thoughts are the highest vibration of energy. Thoughts and Intentions are very powerful when programming a crystal.

Before programming your crystal, form your intent. What do you want the crystal to do? Help you in healing? Help you attract love? Help you be successful in your job? Help you study?

Say it in the present tense. For example, “This crystal always attracts the right man/woman for me!” Special requests should be included. Keep it positive!

Once you have formed your intent:
  1. Deprogram any intentions previously in the crystal.
  2. Place on your third eye and focus your intent into the crystal or hold it in your hand, and direct your intent.

5)      Can the crystal be concealed from participant and hypnotherapist (without either having knowledge of it being there) and have the participant still benefit?
Yes, you can also use the crystal without the participant's knowledge. Many times this is necessary when the participant is not conscious, too ill or wary about crystal healing. In the end, if whichever healing method you choose works, that is what is important!
