Question:  I want to use crystals for Crystal Healing.  Which crystals should I start with first and how do I begin?

Thank you for taking the time to write in.  Crystal Healing is a form of healing that has been used for centuries in the Ayurvedic system of healing from India.  Learning how to use a clear quartz pendulum to health dowse is a good way to start using crystals for healing. 

There are seven main Chakra centers, the Root, the Sacral, the Solar Plexus, the Heart, the Throat, the Brow (Third Eye), and the Crown.  These Chakras are part of the Auric body which is a copy of the physical body.  By balancing the Chakras you are healing both.  As you dowse over the Chakra center you are doing a reading.  Clear Quartz is known as the “master healer” and helps to clear any blockages in the Chakra center which might block the flow of Prana (life force) flowing through the Chakra System.

Clear Quartz Pendulum for Health Dowsing for Blockages

Once you know which Chakras have blockages you can target these areas with corresponding crystals used to strengthen that Chakra.  See the diagram below for the placement of the Chakra crystal healing grid. 

For individual crystal uses and how to make crystal essences see Crystal Prescriptions book by Judy Hall, published by O Books, 2005. 

Crystal Healing Grids

Crystal healing grids using sacred geometry can also be used for the Body and for the Environment.  See Ethan Lazzerini Crystal Grid Power, published in 2017 which comes with a download of various printable Sacred Geometry crystal grid templates that can be used.  A sample of these grids are available from his website as well.  https://www.ethanlazzerini.com/free-crystal-grid-templates/   

Crystals can also be placed in the home for healing and to help bring abundance and well being and for protection.  https://www.ethanlazzerini.com/crystals-for-your-home/

Positive features of Uranus are intuition and being original.  During retrogrades it is more difficult to be yourself without causing problems for others and yourself.  Anxiety, spasms, and nervous conditions and changes in personality can be symptoms of internalizing the energy associated with Uranus.  During this time it is possible to make internal changes to be able to manifest outward changes when the retrograde turns direct.  The objective should be how to be yourself without causing difficulties that may alienate you from the community.
