Crystals are nature’s secret energizers. These colourful stones are found in nature worldwide and they are tiny powerhouses that amplify the energy that you work with. Ancient Mayans believed in crystals’ ability to heal, protect and energise the body and mind, and to awaken inner spiritual wisdom. There are over 100 different crystals for healing, personal empowerment, protection and abundance. There are many courses and books, I just want to give you my personal experience and maybe it could interest you to hold one yourself. 

I was introduced to crystals in Thailand in 2008. It was the chakra crystal clearing that really felt like a touch of energy to the inside out. My chosen crystal was hematite, good for grounding. God I needed grounding so badly back then. I wore it all the time, almost attached to it, for years it was around my neck. Then years later, I was introduced deeply to precious stones by my dear friend Suzana. Firstly I was mesmerised by their beauty, each is uniquely different and beautiful. Just looking at them makes me feel happy somehow. This special friend of mine has been exploring them for years, so luckily I had a good lead on quality vs price and accessibility, and soon enough I was hooked. At first it was a game of little beauty stones, then it became a learning curve of why/how/when to use them. Soon enough I had a little collection. Nowadays, I love playing with them with my daughter with crystals. Each crystal has a vibe that cleans our vibe, that in some way or the other affects our beings. It is a wonderful game of colours, names, vibrations, and shapes. 

I remember purchasing a Sunstone crystal, and feeling attracted to it. It’s like that electronic attraction kind of a feel, you just can’t get enough. Everytime I meditate with this stone I’d come out feeling lighter and brighter. It holds the properties of positivity and light, and I’d always feel as if protected in rays of light. Galaxy stone was my favorite formeditation for months. I would feel as if the whole galaxy of small particles are clearing and cleaning my aura. Wonderfully rejuvenating for my outer body energy field. Amethyst before sleep is like a little magic pill for my energy body, it gently puts my vibe on pause, and connects to my higher self that says ‘now hush little one’, it’s time for sleep’. Ruby in Kyanite I read was my stone, and OMG having it in my pocket I feel being connected to my higher vibe and my heart. Amazonite feels like an amazing heart throat connection, I feel my heart as I speak. Lapis Lazuli drowns out my stress and anxiety, and my nervous system feels more quiet. And while working on my heart chakra in aim for some deeper work, Malachite taught me the strength of stronger stones, so I changed it for a gentle Rose Quartz crystal which was like a soothing balm for an open wound. And lately, I was lucky enough to get the experience of a deeper and more concentrated carat with Ruby stone: after only 3 days of wearing it courage and determination is channeled into positive actions.

And I could go on and on. It is most definitely a beautiful enhancement in my meditation and simple workings with particular intention. And every time I am taken away by the energetic power of this precious nature’s empowerment for the mind, body and the spirit. The more I meditate with precious stones, the more I feel being attuned to myself and I pick a perfect stone that my energy body needs.

Isn’t it fabulous that you can take a beautiful precious stone into your hands and within a few days you can get affected by its energy. I like the way Teal Swan gives her opinion on how crystals work: ‘The governing law of every dimension within the universe is that of “oneness”. In physical life, we have come to call this the “Law of Attraction”. Simply put, only frequencies that are a vibrational match can co-exist. Therefore, in order to share the same space with another “form”, you must be vibrating at the same level as it is vibrating. Health is the natural state of any form within the universe. Therefore, the natural inclination and tendency of anything within the universe is that of balance, cohesiveness and ease. This means that the natural progression of vibration is to entrain and resonate in the direction of health. Because of this, when you share the space with a crystal (or gemstone) that has a resistance free vibration, instead of the vibration of the crystal adopting a non cohesive pattern, your energy will entrain with the energy of the crystal and adopt it’s cohesive pattern.

This entertainment causes you to no longer create the pattern of dis-ease within your energetic substructures and therefore, the physical manifestation of that dis-eased energy is no longer being maintained and the physical symptom disappears. Because of this entrainment effect, crystals and gemstones are incredibly adept at bringing us back into a vibrational state of health and harmony.’

Powerful, right? But I feel that one should either already be working on heightening awareness, or it should be led by someone who knows how to work with crystals. This is because crystals require certain cleanse and some have quite strong energy, and we should be gentle with ourselves. Right knowledge and right application is always the key to success.

‘My heart is open, to give and to receive love!’

Can you honestly say with your inner feeling of yourself, and being truthful that this is who you are? I’d say that the majority of us are actually struggling, one way or the other. We either close our heart, cool is a new cool, right? Or we just give and give because kindness is a new cool or it just simply makes us feel good. But what about healthy boundaries and love for ourselves? When essentially we are not allowing ourselves to feel, we are not allowing ourselves to grow. Consequently we cannot give, truly warmly from the heart. And receiving is then almost impossible, because if we don’t have the experience with giving, how could we possibly be able to receive? 

Love is, I believe, one of The biggest, The strongest force that we can possess/obtain/gain. Being conscious of Love is the magic that is difficult to explain but it’s like a perfect day when everything is synchronised and it is working in a way that it unfolds within the vibration as a soft breeze. As a soft breeze within our desires and higher self willingness to enjoy the goodies that life can offer to our senses. Universal LOVE is when everything that our eyes see our hearts softens. LOVE is when our heart feels soft and is willing to receive and happily gives and shares. Love is when we can breath openly, freely and expandingly. Love is a true healer, for us and those around us. Love is what moves mountains because it is for our higher good and for others.   

This energy center in our chest area starts developing between the age of 4-7. It is formed by having the experience of love from our parents/guardians and being accepted. Physical issues connected with lack of love and acceptance may be, asthma, heart disease, and type of lung issues, or issues with your breast, upper back and shoulder problems. 

Spiritually it is the bridge between higher and lower chakras, it is the ability to love and receive love, unconditionally. It is green/pink colour with an element of air. It is connected to love, joy and inner peace. Our divine nature is to be loving, kind and compassionate. When you begin to grow spiritually you begin to be able to give unconditionally and receive in the same way. It contracts when there is pain and drama. If it’s closed, mostly likely sadness was not cleared out of the system. Compassion and acceptance is the sign your heart chakra is clear. Defensive and unforgiving is a sign your heart chakra is closed. Just to mention some. 

Working on this energetic area is very important, because it is the connector between your lower and upper chakras, it is the connecting force. If energy is not flowing freely, it may unbalance your whole energy system. It is the Air element, without air we would not be able to live. So practicing pranayama breathing helps greatly to open this energy center. You will feel more kind and joyful, compassionate, and forgiving to Yourself and subsequently to others.  You will feel lighter, more flexible and you will let all that weights that push you down

‘I speak my heartfelt truth with integrity and confidence.’

How many of us can honestly say that this statement is your true statement? We either don’t even understand this statement, because we are so wrapped up in our social norms, or we don’t know what heartfelt truth is, because we don’t feel our heart desires which are dimmed by fear. I was both, I was not feeling my heart. Actually, I don’t think I even knew what that concept meant because expressing my true self felt at the time as if it was exposing Me. My heart desires were hidden behind the fear of being rejected. Speaking out constantly, I sometimes felt it was what I needed, when actually I was hiding behind that constant need for expression. And in honesty, I still find myself in this vortex, but ‘the observer’ is now stronger so I come out to balance.

The throat chakra energy center is in our throat area, but also in our ears and nose. All of this is the area connected to throat chakra: our communication, expression, and also hearing and sensing. 

This energetic body will develop from the age of  3-12. It will be supported by the environment for exploration, creative play, allowance to speak up and not holding any secrets in the household, no screaming and supported balanced upbringing. When this chakra is balanced, one will have a desire to communicate their truth, searching for their true voice and clear expression of intention and attitude. Being able to hear others in their expression is also a sign of having this energy center balanced. You’re trustworthy because you trust yourself, you’re clear, authentic and free in your speech. 

This energy center will lose its balance with lies, and if lower energy chakra centers are unbalanced. It is crucial that you connect to your inner child as well as stability and grounding. It is important to do inner work with those lower chakras with meditation and yoga, and visualisation to establish good grounding which will enable then to rise and shine to your upper chakras. 

If you are a big talker and come as arrogant, then this is an indication that this energy center in your body is overactive, and calming and balancing is needed. You may be doubtful and dishonest and telling lies constantly.

Good news is, this can all be put into manageable balance with the right approach and correct tools. Body orientated psychotherapy I found to be very effective, and yoga, meditation, good quality essential oils, and sound healing. Sound healing can be as simple as singing and finding your voice or chanting. If you’re interested in working with your energetic body, please get in touch. kikigyoga@gmail.com.
