I’ve just had a crystal healing session and it was AMAZING.
When I arrived at the practitioners premises I had to fill out the usual medical form, name, address, etc. Then she told me what she would be doing. The session, in a nutshell, involved seeing which chakras were out of balance, then opening up the chakras, allowing the negative energy out, positive energy in and closing the chakras back again.
I’m sure the sceptical amongst you are sitting there tutting and saying “what a load of codswallop!”
Anyway, I lay on the treatment table.
First of all the room was cleansed, the practitioner then gave me a clear crystal to hold throughout the session – she clasped my hand to establish a connection!
Then the practitioner took a crystal on a pendant and held it over each chakra centre to establish which ones were out of balance. As the pendant was held over the centre it would either not move, or move according to whether the centre was out of balance or not.
Again, for all you sceptics out there saying “Surely the practitioner could just wiggle it anyway?”
Yes, she could. But seriously, you could tell which was a movement made by the normal, natural process of just holding something still and not (trust me I watched her wrist and hands like a hawk!)
My solar plexus and heart chakras were seriously out of kilter.
The solar plexus is connected to mental alertness and confidence and the heart is connected to emotions.
And since I have not been feeling my best recently this did not surprise me in the slightest!
Then the session really began and I shut my eyes and relaxed.
I had to take 3 deep breaths and then she set to work.
I felt her place a crystal above my head and hold it with her hands to open the crown chakra. After several minutes she moved away and placed the next (different) crystal on the next chakra centre and so on working down from crown to base.
After she moved to another centre I could still feel the crystal on the previous points and it felt cold. I have to admit, I peeked when she moved away from the heart chakra and could not believe that there was no crystal there!
I could feel where all the crystals had been and at each point it was really cold.
So I went back to relaxing.
The practitioner continued working – no idea what actually happened after I closed my eyes – I know theoretically (because she had explained) that once the chakras were open she would place a circle of clear crystals around me to release all the negative energy and then turn them round so that they would allow positive energy to flow back, then she would close them up.
As my eyes were closed I became more and more relaxed and it was then it happened!
You know when you are just waking and your eyes aren’t properly open but you can sense them opening and with every blink see some lights and shapes, which get bigger and bigger until your eyes are open.
… that’s what it felt like. – and I know I’m so not going to explain it very well, but I felt like my eyes were opening, although they were shut tight.
I could see them (apparently) trying to open, and it was as if a blind was opening, as the blind was drawn back I thought I could see sky. There were some clouds, but on the whole it was blue, and there were trees either side. It was as if I was lying on the grass looking upwards.
Then snatched bits of conversation popped into my head and just when I thought I’d cleared my head to relax again, up popped another snippet. I saw people too, some from my past and some from my present.
And all the time, the blinds were being lifted. they closed because I became conscious of them and thought my eyes were actually opening.
It is very difficult to explain and you’re probably thinking I’m making half of this up, but I swear to God I am not.
Whilst I was lying there, I could not feel the crystal in my left hand and my right hand, although it was resting on my right leg it didn’t feel as if it were at all, and I felt almost like I was floating.
It was only every so often I realised I still was breathing, I would physically feel myself take some breaths and then I would be totally unconscious of it again.
And still, the coldness remained where the crystals had been placed.
At one point towards the end, my entire body went really cold and then began to warm up.
It was then that the practitioner took hold of the hand that held the crystal and asked me to take 3 deep breaths and then slowly open my eyes.
Once I had my eyes open, she took up the pendant and placed it over the chakra centres that had been unbalanced and it did not move this time.
I felt totally relaxed and at peace.
There are, as with everything, after care recommendations such as not smoking, drinking, reducing caffeine intake and increasing water intake, plus relaxing, which I shall try to do.
I did tell her about the coldness, the eyes open sensation and the conversations.
She explained the conversations were probably blockages that were freeing themselves, and the coldness was just the chakra centres working on restoring calm. The blind opening sensation was clearly my subconscious going to a higher plane! (cue laughter!)
If you are of a mind to try it out, I would recommend it. As with anything holistic it’s best to go somewhere that has been recommended you by a friend.
I shall be going back when I feel out of balance again, until then I shall enjoy being connected to the universe once more 😉
