Crystals have a fixed rate of vibration that is determined by their individual atomic structure and colour.

Human energy in comparison varies enormously as it responds to our moods and emotions.  The stable energy of crystals is used in therapy to regulate our energy.

As our energy fluctuates, so do our chakras.   These are vortexes in our energy field that draw energy into our physical bodies.  Placing crystals on and around the chakras restores them to their perfect frequency.  Each chakra feeds energy to a subtle body in our energy field.  We can therefore balance the subtle bodies by balancing the chakras.

We tend to react to unpleasant circumstances by blocking our feelings; this immediately stops a great deal of our natural energy flow.  The development and maturation of the chakras is then affected, resulting in a disconnected mind/body/spirit connection.

Illness occurs when our subtle bodies repeatedly go out of balance or frequency, resulting in a state of disharmony or dis-ease.  By correcting the frequencies we can bring about health and harmony.  The subtle bodies are the “missing link” between biology, physical medicine and psychotherapy.  They are the “place” where all emotions, thoughts, memories and behaviour patterns are held in time and space.  All of these feelings that we discuss so endlessly and tirelessly are held in our energy field.


Crystals need regular cleaning. This is because their energy field, like ours, is sensitive to the energetic environment and can accumulate energy unconducive to harmony and health. If crystals are not regularly cleansed, they will store the negativity picked up from our energy fields, and actually feed it back to us. This is why it 's so important to keep their energy clear and fresh. With experience of handling crystals, you will feel immediately if they require cleansing. Always clean a crystal when you first bring it home and after using it for healing or meditation. Cleanse crystal jewellery and stones that dislike salt or water by placing on an amethyst cluster.


  • Place in a bowl of sea salt or rock salt dissolved in water for about an hour
  •  Bury in the earth overnight
  • Hold the crystal under running water and visualise white light running through it
  • Breathe or blow on your crystal and visualise all negative energy leaving it
  • Burn frankincense or sage to smoke out negativity
  • Put on a windowsill to be cleansed by sunshine or gentle moonlight
  • Place the crystal on an amethyst cluster for at least an hour (then give the amethyst cluster a salt bath every week)

    Note that some stones dislike salt or water, or both, eg malachite, calcite, selenite, gypsum, kyanite, jade, lapis lazuli.
