I wasn’t sure where to post this for a few reasons:
- It’s personal
- This is a crystal shop blog
- I actually have a few websites
But at the same time, I wanted to post it here because:
- It’s about crystals
- It’s also about crystal healing, which is tied to the use of crystals and stones
- Maybe you want to learn it too and so I figured I would share my learning experience here.😊
- I promised myself that I would blog here once a week.
I wanted to learn crystal healing for some time now, but didn’t know where to go.
There are a few reputable places to learn online and you’ve probably heard of them – Hibiscus Moon, Love & Light School of Crystal Therapy, Krista Mitchell and more that I can’t think of at the moment.
There’s also a very informative book series on the subject that I think a lot of the online schools I mentioned above use to teach crystal healing to students. I also reference it a lot throughout Metaphysical Vibes shop website, it’s called Crystal Healing Volumes 1-3 by Katrina Raphaell. Katrina really goes in depth with each of her books and I have so much love, gratitude and respect for all the knowledge that she shared.
Ultimately, as much as these online courses offered lots of useful information and flexibility – I just wasn’t sure if I could commit to it fully.
The thing with online courses is (they’re great, don’t get me wrong) – sometimes the information doesn’t stick, at least for me.
Also because it’s so convenient, I mean you’re learning from home – distraction and laziness ensues. Go figure!
But if I commit to getting up every weekend; showering, dressing up, driving and attending an actual class, learning from an actual person and partnering up with different people in your class, then the information sinks in a lot more.
So I decided it would be best to learn in person and went with the highly venerated Rev. Patricia Bankins who just so happened to be offering her 8 week course on Trans Crystal Therapy. She is the founder and owner of The Crystal Matrix here in Los Angeles, CA.
I completed my 8 weeks but we also went over. So I will be attending one final class where we’re actually doing crystal healings on actual people! I will update this blog post again when I’ve done it.
To tell you the truth, I really don’t know what compelled me to start learning all of this.
The only thing I can really think of is that I needed to heal parts of myself so I can be better qualified to assist others with their own healing, even though I really don’t consider myself a ‘healer’. You can read more about it here on my personal blog.
Also, when I started Metaphysical Vibes – my initial goal was to have an online crystal shop, make money and hopefully quit my fulltime job. Needless to say, the crystals wanted me to experience something beyond those superficial desires.
I have learned so much about the chakras and the corresponding crystals or stones, sensing and feeling the aura, acupuncture points, meridians and so much more. I even witnessed a girl in my class experience an intense emotional release through it.
I’m pretty certain that the crystals lead me to this point so I could be in service to others on a deeper level.
I have so many teachers to thank really, but I will save it for another blog post.
So we’ll see where this goes!
