The Best Crystal Ever

You may know me as a shamanic healer and energy worker but long before that, I fell in love with crystals and became a trained crystal healer.

I love crystals, love to hold and feel them, but the longer I have been working with them, the more I’ve learned that you don’t need the physical crystal with you in order to work with its energy.  I also found out what the most incredible crystal of them all is, the one with the most mineral content, the most potential for healing and the most incredible possibilities for transformation.  It’s one that you certainly have in your possession, everybody has this crystal.

When I started to channel, one of the energies that came through is the Crystalline Consciousness, and you can read their messages here, here and here.  They are what it says, the energetic consciousness of all that is crystalline.  They exist on the inner planes where they have their own school or ashram and you can go there energetically to learn all sorts of things.  One of the things they have taught me is that they are present when I am painting in the minerals that make up my paints.  Therefore, I can connect with the paints themselves energetically, as though they are crystals, the minerals may be ground down, yet they are still a medium through which the crystalline consciousness expresses through me.  If you’re a painter too, think of that the next time you get your paints out.  Another way they are present is the internet, through mobile phones, computers and TVs, none of which could operate without the crystalline presence within them.       

When I’m channelling and the crystalline consciousness come through, they sometimes refer to humans as ‘scintillating crystal beings’ which is lovely. And we are, we are the most incredible crystal of all.

Not only do we contain something like fifty-seven mineral elements that make up our body, but we are mostly water, which is crystalline. Our body is amazing. Even when you’re out and about without your crystals, you’re still carrying lithium, molybdenum, manganese, chromium, selenium, iodine, boron, vanadium, copper, strontium, zinc, fluorine, iron, silicon, magnesium, chlorine, sodium, sulphur, potassium, phosphorous, calcium and carbon with you all the time, along with another twenty-three minerals, inside your body. And these all have powerful healing energies that you can tune into and energise. Because the secret ingredient of all crystal healing is intent.

It’s because we are crystals ourselves that we can connect so powerfully to the consciousness of crystals through the stones and rocks that we love to hold, to place around our homes and wear as jewellery on our bodies.  But even though their physical presence helps us to focus into their energy, when we become more adept, we don’t need them, we can connect to their energies automatically through the crystalline consciousness, just by focusing our energy whilst in a state of relaxation and bringing that energy forward.  Simply ask the crystalline consciousness to come forward and it will. 

If you feel the need to receive the energy from a particular crystal, just ask to receive it through your being there and then.  If you need healing and don’t know which crystal you need, simply ask to receive the appropriate crystal energy for your condition.  And you can connect to your personal favourite crystals if you’re miles away from them, in the same way. 

When you’re working with any crystal, you are not working with a piece of stone or a gem, you’re working with the energy, the consciousness that is attached to that physical object, just as we are light beings attached to a physical body, but we can exist as light beings without our body too.  We do that when we sleep, when we transition after death and when we travel with our energy bodies in meditation, healing and shamanic journeying. 

When you’re an energy worker, you are consciously your energy self, a self that is not subject to the limitations of space or time. And in being so, we discover that this is the true nature of reality, so we begin to realise that the things around us are also energy and not restricted by their physicality.

Crystal Prayer for Afghanistan

A beautiful woman called Diana Cooper put out a post on FB which gave an exercise for crystal healing for Afghanistan.  She suggested a selection of stones and crystals that exist naturally in the region and gave guidelines for connecting with them, in order to increase peace, freedom and other wonderful qualities in a troubled country. 

Somebody left a comment; “I don’t think crystals would do the trick, genuine prayer would change Afghanistan.”

Somebody replied; “This is a prayer.”

A reply came back; “Do you think I have to pray to crystals or to God?”

And to that, I say now what I said then:

From where I’m looking the Creator is in everything, the Creator is everywhere, the Creator doesn’t have ego and receives all prayers that come from the heart, whether using the Creator’s name or not.  The crystalline consciousness is another expression of the Creator, dedicated to the divine will and divine plan of the Creator.  Nothing happening here is taking place separately from God, it’s just a question of really seeing God.

And now I’d like to share Diana’s crystal healing technique:

If you have one of the below crystals or gems, touch it.  If not, look at a picture of it or write the name of the crystal or simply think about it.

Bless it.

Think about the spiritual qualities of the stones (listed below).

Ask the stone to connect to the same type of crystal or gem in Afghanistan, radiating their qualities to all the people there, Afghans and Taliban.

Mentally say, “Let there be peace and freedom in Afghanistan”.

Know that you are making beneficial energetic, spiritual links to raise the frequency of Afghanistan and its people.

Of The Animals And More…

My story is of the hawk, of the black-winged gull, of the bite in the air. My story is accompanied with the melody of hedgerow birds, especially blackbird and robin. And the magpie defines the interplay of this story’s words in her flight.

Voices ring out across the lane. The earl grey, purple-grey misty mizzle rolls over the distant hill. The stillness is not silent because silence isn’t silent. Silence is noisier than noise sometimes, and in this moment as innocent insects glide by, there is both silence and the constant harmony of universal song.

It is winter. It is two weeks on from the shortest day of the year. I like to think it’s the beginning of summer in my optimism, for the sun is now making first steps on the long journey of return that concludes on June 21st 2021. Today is like any other winter’s day, warmer than most, drier than many, here in the land of the Cymru.

It is a still day, in a new way. It is silent, in a new way. It is alive in a new way. And when I feel deep into that energy, my skin creeps as though there is some invisible presence that only my body can perceive.

Above the hedgerow, the majestic form of the red kite is gliding over the tops of purple trees, soaring into the misty distance and I wonder, what is the story that the land is telling me today?

As the light fades, the grass in the field looks greener, a bright emerald green. There are many lives living invisibly in this landscape; hare, mice, rat, stoat, otter, hedgehog, badger, fox, deer, to name a few. They are all here in this landscape within which I sit and yet, I see them not. How many of them see me, I do not know. But they are a part of this story, for this is a story about the animals.

Did you know the animals can talk? They talk to each other and they talk to humans, the ones that are open to hear. We are, for some strange reason, worthy of their interest, despite everything we do to persecute them, dishonour them, disrespect them.

How much has humanity harmed the animals, just to think of it brings my eyes to flooding. And yet, they continue to fulfil a role of companionship, support, service, love and care towards us in so many ways, seen and unseen. Some of us are now stepping forward to connect with the animals and create a bridge of hope and healing. Some of us are bringing forth the humility of humanity to the animals, bringing them humble apologies, even though none can ever serve for what has been done, still, it must be said. And we are holding out a hand of hope and faith for a truer connection.

Some of us are doing the same for the nature beings, the tree spirits and plant energies. Some of us are working with inner planes beings that support us from other realms. All these energies are coming forward now and selectively making themselves known. Some of us decided to be of service and connect with their energies and now is the dawning of our contracts of service that were made before we were conceived in our current personalities.

These contracts are activating, they carry a contract of service for humanity and the universe, for Mother Earth and all that is. Perhaps you will be approached by the collective consciousness of animals or the collective consciousness of crystals, the collective consciousness of bees, the collective consciousness of nature beings and elemental beings, the collective consciousness of tree spirits, the collective consciousness of the angelic realm or the star beings or the Goddess consciousness.

It all comes down to one thing. We are being asked at this time to choose. To choose what we wish to awaken within our being. To choose what we wish to awaken within our reality. And to choose what we wish to awaken within the world. We are really being asked to remember what we have already chosen. We are asked now to wake up and connect to our purpose and as we do, we are coming together as one. This is unity consciousness, we are involved in nothing more than coming together in unity as one with all, recognising the unity in ourselves and everything else.

Unity is expressed through reconnecting with all the energies that exist, many of which we have denied the existence of for thousands of years, even though our ancestors had a direct communication with these energies and beings. It is time for us to rekindle those connections and bring them into the forefront of the consciousness of humanity again. To trust that we have grown up enough, as a collective here on Earth, to be responsible and humble, with enough integrity, to move through our relationships with these beings towards unity with all.

My First Story

I am one who sees, hears and feels the magic of the land.  I grew up in the bosom of the land and heard the stories that the land spoke, that the land speaks to this day.  I know that when the mist descends and the hills disappear, they have gone beyond the veil, they have shifted into another realm, a magical realm, an earthy, dark realm where I belong, for my ancestors dwell there.

The land is my mother.  She was my loving mother in childhood, even when the love of a human mother seemed to elude me, so it was that the nurture I suckled as a child came from the earth, from stone and gorse and bracken and tall grasses, from the hedgerows and the woods, the beaches, the valleys, the streams. In short, my succour came from the land.

And now I find that the land is telling me of other lives I lived, in which I heard its stories.  It has awoken me to the truth that I am a storyteller, one who holds the stories for many, a carrier of the lore.

These stories belong to the land and they belong to me, a child of the land.  They belong to all of us, they always have and always will, they are the stories of us all, for us all.  For we have lived before and known each other in many ways, we are our ancestors and descendants and we all carry within us the jewels of wisdom and kernels of truth that are hidden in the stories of the land. 

I know that the stories I carry are waking up. They have a life of their own, it is as though they are living beings. They contain their own conscious awareness, they know when it is time to wake up and they know when it is time to speak. They have been sleeping, just as the maiden in the fairy tales sleeps, as though she will never wake up, but she is waking up. This is the time when all the heroes and heroines who sleep in the stories are waking up; Merlin, King Arthur, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, all waking up. The dragons are waking up and all of the magical beauty and truth that the land holds for us all is waking up. For they have only been asleep from our perspective, only been out of reach to those who cannot sense them. For some, they have remained awake and accessible. In truth, it’s not they who have been sleeping at all, it is us.

Whether you believe in magic now, you are going to believe in magic soon, when magic walks amongst us all in broad daylight, when all those myths and characters that we thought were only children’s stories turn out to be true, to be within our realm of experience, undeniable. Dwarves, goblins, trolls, faeries, giants, dragons. Like those people who refused to believe in ghosts until they had a particular experience, after which they could no longer say that they absolutely denied the existence of ghosts.

We are all magical but if we only see the reality of the physical world that is before our eyes, the world that the scientists tell us about, then, we are only scratching the surface of our own selves. We have not realised who we are, we have not looked in the mirror of truth and recognised ourselves yet.

There are those of us whose understanding of reality extends beyond the obvious, beyond the realm of the physical, extends into the dusty corners of our imaginations and to the heart of our intuition. We who have always believed in magic, even in the face of apparent evidence against. You will find that our innate inner sense of belief in the existence of this incredible realm of possibility is no longer possibility, but probability. And once it becomes a probability and we begin to have a relationship with it, then we bring it into ourselves, into our expressions of truth, into our core of being. And as we do that, what we meet there is us. Divine magic is within us, it is who we are, we are divine magic. What is outside of us is within us, what is within us is outside of us. And what we choose, becomes. And this, my friends, is my first story.

This story is accompanied with a painting I made as a commission for a poem. It’s called ‘Ancestral Blueprint’. Check out my gallery of paintings in the sidebar.
