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.

As to how crystal healing works, you can learn more here: 
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:
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:  
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: 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!

Calming Anxiety with Rhodonite

Question: HI Sheila, I apologize for not letting you know I received the Lepidolite bracelet.  I love it! I've been ill for a while and it helped a great deal.  
Do you have raw tumbled rhodalite?  You know, the pink and black stone?  I had a frog made of that stone and really was attached to it but when my daughter moved to Florida 7 years ago I sent it along with her as a good look token.  It must have worked because she is now happily married with a beautiful daughter of her own and has just been certified to teach.  She also snagged a cute home on a lake with an oddly helpful water spirit.  I'd forgotten about the stone until I had a severe panic attack and she pulled it out of her purse and handed it to me.  Wow!  Did that bring back memories... and helped calm my attack.  Anyway, I am interested in a palm sized raw tumbled "chunk" of Rhodalite if you can help.

Answer: Hi, it's great to hear from you and to hear that your Lepidolite bracelet is helping to balance your energies.

Do you mean Rhodonite? It is also a pink and black stone. I do have Rhodonite jewelry:

Or, if you are particularly looking for tumbled stones, I can refer you to my mother's website, Sunny Crystals, as she specializes in loose stones:

If you are referring to Rhodolite Garnet which is usually just red, I can ask her specifically to look for some during their next buying trip!

Maori Stones with Magnetite

Scientists are studying the Earth's magnetic field using the stones that line Maori steam ovens.The cooking process generates so much heat that the magnetic minerals in these stones will realign themselves with the current field direction. Abandoned stones at these locations could shed light on Earth's magnetic behaviour going back hundreds of years.

"The Maori prefer these volcanic boulders because they don't crack and shatter in the fire, and from our point of view they're the best because magnetically they behave better - they're formed with a high concentration of magnetite," the Wellington scientist said. "But there are some sedimentary rocks which we can use also."

Bead Hunting in Missouri

This past Thanksgiving I spent time with Matthew's family in the Missouri countryside, a great change of scenery from the condensed city life of San Francisco. We went for long walks in the fresh air, collected rocks in the creek bed and went bead hunting while the boys went hunting hunting! Here are a few pictures to share with you - Sheila :)

Jet & Betel Nuts

Jet is a black, lightweight stone crystallized from fossilized wood. Jet has been traditionally used to ward against evil and violence. In this crystal healing wrap bracelet, Jet is beaded with wood and Betel Nuts. Betel Nuts come from the tropical Areca palm tree. These are sustainable beads because they are created from the fruit of the Areca rather than the tree itself. Betel Nuts have interesting patterns and can be carved just like wood to use in natural healing jewelry.
