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 is 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.
Some of the possible reasons why you’re wanting to learn crystal healing or crystal therapy:
- You have a strong desire to know and heal yourself.
- You want to expand and deepen your knowledge of crystals and stones.
- You want to understand how crystals can actually heal the mind, body and spirit.
- You want to be in greater service to yourself and others.
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 – I’ve added a link to the first book. 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 online and 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.
Update 6/12/18: I completed the 8 week course and my final on June 9th, 2018. I am officially a Certified Trans Crystal Therapist⭐
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, acupressure 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!
In short, if you want to learn crystal healing or crystal therapy, you’ll have to decide how you want to learn. Trust that you’ll pick whatever is right for you.😊
Taking an online course is definitely easier as it gives direct access to those who may not have access to these courses in their local area.
But if you would rather learn in person like I did, then start searching for a local teacher. You can also read books on the subject, and you can also ask someone who is a crystal healer or crystal therapist how they learned.
Update September 19, 2018:
