Do you take Cream and Sugar with your Crystals?

     Crystals and more crystals, and what-ever should I do with them?

     Crystals are here on Earth to bring light. So, what better place to put them than on the coffee table in the living room? Bring divine light into your primary living space and give it a vibrational lift!

     Come with me on the Magical Mystery Tour of my coffee table crystals. Here is an image of the crystals on the coffee table in our living room. Wherever will I put my coffee?

     This collection of living room crystals is the result of a couple of decades of working with crystals in a serious way. If you are thinking of starting a living-room-crystal project, start with what you have. No need to get everything today!
    Crystals bring light. The light they bring is determined by your vibration. Hence, what you have to put on your coffee table is perfect for right now, and perfectly in tune with your vibration. As your crystals bring light, your vibration rises and more crystals will find their way into your collection.

     This image shows the core centre-piece crystals. See the large crystal ball in the very centre. Light comes into a ball from all sides, but light is also coming in from all sides of the ball at a dimensional level above the physical plane. Both physical and higher dimensional light is moving in and out of the crystal ball. The three larger clear quartz-points and the two smaller quartz-points around the ball are generator crystals because of their larger size. They push a significant amount of light. Notice how they are arranged to point in a counter-clockwise direction. In this configuration they create a counter-clockwise vortex that causes the light flow to be in-bound. For the person who is not yet enlightened and ascended, the idea is to bring the light into the physical body. Between the crystal ball and the generators, a fair amount of light is swirling around in this space as it finds its way into our living room.

     Going around the table starting in the twelve o’clock position, Pink Halite sits on top of a Selenite slab. I had my eyes peeled for a quality piece of Pink Halite ever since I first encountered it in 1994 at the Conclave of Archangel Michael in Banff.  I got this piece from Silver Cove about 2 years ago. Pink Halite creates its own vortex of out-bound light. It brings the vibrations of love and compassion that go with the pink heart chakra frequencies. Yes, there is love in our living room!
     The Selenite is the pathway to the highest places of one’s own being. In this case, Selenite, with the help of Pink Halite’s love, is reaching into the highest levels of the universe to bring the highest parts of the collective higher-self of my wife, myself, our dog, Merlin, and whatever else constitutes the vibration of our home.

     Here we have a good-sized piece of Malachite (bottom) and a raw natural Fluorite. Malachite works to remove the negative aspects of the vibrations that are flowing through this space. It is a light cleanser that removes the undesirable aspects of vibration that may find their way. The Fluorite (everyone needs Fluorite) opens the door to help light flow from the higher dimensions of the universe, as well as, making a place for spirit guides to come to bring their love and influences to our home.

     Going clockwise round the table, you can see the Fluorite, and now add Rose Quartz and Sodalite. Rose Quartz adds love to the mix of light. Pink Halite and Rose Quartz provide the same basic frequency of love wherever they are placed. More love! The Sodalite is a stone that aligns the will of the individual on Earth with the will of his or her higher-self in the heavens. If your will is the same as divine will, what would it be?

     Here is my first book, The Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment. It, too, adds vibration to the mix. If you want to understand crystals beyond mere cause-and-effect, first understand light. This book is a window for the intellect to envision the wisdom of divine light and to envision the steps on the spiritual path.  No pabulum and lots to learn!

     At the seven o’clock position there is my conch, which puts out quite a sound if done right, Labradorite, and what we call the Abundance Angel (clear quartz). A string of prayer beads that comes from a Shaman we know is around the neck of the angel. Labradorite’s contribution to the table is that of consciousness healing and expansion. You can see the iridescent shimmer of blue, green, and gold hues on its surface. The iridescent shimmer is indicative of vibrations that are quite subtle, as are the vibrations of consciousness.

     Finally, here is an additional piece of raw Rose Quartz for more love. As it is a tea-light holder, it carries the flame to show the way through the darkness as the spiritual path unfolds before the eyes of the devotee. Contemplate the flame and be-here-now.

The coffee table in the living room is a great place to start bringing divine light into your space!

Healing and Bloodstone

     Healers of all kinds will benefit from knowing how the healing crystals work and how they are best used.  Perhaps you are already an intuitive healer, but now want to learn how crystals can help.  If you are an intuitive healer, crystals will work for you, but your own gift trumps all.

     Healing needs to be understood.  What is healing?  You deserve a definition, or at least a clarification.  I define healing as the acceleration of form so that light can enter.

     Let me explain.  Any form in its current state of density, your physical body for example, will work with a specific range of light frequencies at a specific level of vibration.  If you take that same form, and accelerate it so that it vibrates faster, it will then work with more and higher ranges of light frequencies.  When a given form needs healing, whether that form is the physical body or one of the subtle bodies, the implication is that the form does not accept light very well.  If the flow of light into the form is impeded or blocked sufficiently, disease develops and healing becomes necessary.

     The healing process involves the acceleration of form to open form to more and higher light frequencies.  Light then enters and does the healing. I call this “classic healing”.  A crystal that does healing in this classical sense, as I am defining it, accelerates form.  The light then comes in.  Thereafter, light does the healing.  Classic healing crystals are green with a few exceptions.

     The myth that plagues crystals and healing is that crystals do the healing.  No!  Crystals do not do healing.  Crystals bring light.  Light does the healing.  Because getting this right is so important, let me repeat.  Crystals do not do healing.  Crystals bring and manipulate light.  Light does the healing.  The essence of the myth of healing and why so many crystals are erroneously labelled as healing crystals is found in the nature of divine light.  Quite simply, all crystals, with the odd exception, work with light.  Light does the healing.  Because all crystals work with light, what follows is that all crystals do healing.  Loosely saying that all crystals do healing is a truth, but only in the strictest sense of the language.  It is a meaningless truth.  Such a truth offers no understanding about how crystals work.

     Another important perspective I need to mention briefly in passing is that healing is not an eternal process.  Once healed, the healing process is no longer necessary.  The analogy might be where a person receives a cut on the forearm.  Thereafter, she goes to the doctor and gets half a dozen stitches.  Two weeks later, the stitches are removed.  Scar tissue develops to complete the healing process.  The point is that the cut does not need to be healed all over again.  Healing is complete.  So, move on.

     On to Bloodstone!

     Bloodstone is a classic healer and an old Earth stone.  In Bloodstone’s case, the form that it accelerates is not actually form, but rather the etheric magnetic field.  Specifically, Bloodstone works with the innermost layers of the etheric body’s magnetic field.  The etheric magnetic field emanates out from the human body for a couple of feet or so.  If a person is sitting in quiet meditation, the field can be significantly more than a couple of feet. 

     So, how does Bloodstone work? 

     First, the physical body has a blockage somewhere.  Symptoms of a blockage that Bloodstone would work with include physical stiffness of movement, especially in the joints, and perhaps fatigue and paralysis.  Place Bloodstone wherever the problem is located in your body, such as right on the joint, right where the muscles are fatigued, right where the bruise might be, right at the place of paralysis, or wherever there is stiffness.  Place Bloodstone on that spot, and it will work just fine.

     Alternatively, you can place it on the second chakra for the fact that it is a second chakra stone.  If you put a piece in your pocket and walk around with it, it will work equally as well.  Preferably use a smooth tumbled piece for the sake of comfort.  On the second chakra or in your pocket, Bloodstone’s energies are picked up by the etheric magnetic field and taken to the place that needs healing.

     Second, Bloodstone’s energies journey through the body.  They move around; they meander within your aura to different parts of the body, and they pulse as they go.  The stone’s energies continue to meander until they encounter a blockage.  Bloodstone then goes to work.  Initially, its energies simply accumulate around the blockage and continue to pulse.  The pulse strengthens because of the accumulation.  Accumulation continues until the pulses become strong enough to actually hammer their way through the density in the etheric magnetic field.  This is Bloodstone’s version of accelerating form.  Upon busting up the blockage, Bloodstone’s frequencies and the frequencies of the local area rush in to work their healing magic.  Because of the pulsing and hammering, I call Bloodstone the sledgehammer of the crystal world. 

     Bloodstone’s second chakra vibration is relatively low on the scale of high and low.  The density that it works to overcome is also lower on the scale.  The healing that Bloodstone offers applies to quite physically dense areas of the body.  Most often, a healing from Bloodstone is apparent to the stone’s user.  Bloodstone is an effective old-Earth, classic-healer that works directly with the etheric magnetic field to heal physical maladies.

     Healing with light is subtle and should never be used as a substitute for sound advice from professional medical practitioners.

Community Activation

     “I know you, you know me.’ These are the words of a song that sticks in my mind. What song? What meaning? Yet, they are exactly the words to start off this article on community. If I know you and you know me, we share community. We also share mutual trust, respect, and appreciation for what I am and what you are. Community is the essence of what we do together.

     Well, our blond dog barked at the neighbour across the fence, so I knew right away that it was time to say hello again. Our dog needed to know that I knew my neighbour and all was well. The neighbour and I are part of an easily recognizable community. In fact, the community club building for the neighbourhood is about two blocks away. If we had kids, I am sure we would know our neighbourhood much better. As it is, we live in a cul-d-sac and have great relations with the immediate neighbours.

     My job does not involve being closeted in front of the computer; and I work in close proximity with many of my coworkers. We form a community with trust, respect, and appreciation. We know each other within the parameters of our employment.

     The term “spiritual community” seems so natural to say, yet my spiritual community has always included individuals from around the globe. They reinforce the inspirations in my life to rise higher to take my vibration another step.

     Communities abound. The quilters, the photographers, the hockey fans, the union, the computer group, and more! Each rallies individuals around a theme that promotes trust, respect, and appreciation. In our ever-expanding awareness and ever-shrinking world, the reach of many communities now extends into global consciousness. As members with a spiritual element, we have the opportunity to bring our example of conscious living to each of the venues of differing communities to which we belong. Through our own joy, happiness, contentment, peace, and love, we are the channels for a better way. Our next step would be to recognize and activate ourselves as the examples of the way forward for anyone who would join with us in community.

Crystal Layouts …Power Up…

     I’d like to discuss some of the variations that can be employed to do Crystal Layouts.  The first one, and the one I wish to discuss in this article, is, colloquially speaking, the ‘Power Up’ Layout.  Have you worked with crystals before?  If not, this is not the layout to start with.  Power Up layouts are for the old salt, who has lots of crystals and uses them on a regular basis.  If you are a crystalholic, read on!
     In this layout, you use lots of crystals to bring lots of light.  I suggest at least 10 six-sided Clear Quartz Points evenly spaced on each side of the body, along with a sizable Quartz Generator at both the head and the feet.  Usually when you place Clear Quartz Points around your body, they will be pointing inward.  This means the light the crystals bring is directed into your body.   Another suggestion is to place more Clear Quartz Points along your midline at each of the chakras, or even on and between the chakras.  Wow, lots of crystals and lots of light!!

     Normally, crystals placed on the upper chakras are optimal when pointed downward, and on the lower chakras pointed upward, both in the direction of the heart.  In the power up configuration, there is no concern about up or down flow along the midline.  Rather, the objective is simply exposure. 
Besides creating a flow inward, Clear Quartz Points can be used to create vortexes.  A vortex will be either clockwise or counter-clockwise.  Which way is which can be confusing, especially if you turn around.  So, to get the direction clear, for a clockwise vortex, place your hand on your heart and rotate it outward in a clockwise direction.  Do the opposite for a counter clockwise vortex.  That is, with your hand away from your body, bring it to your heart in a counter clockwise direction.  Can you guess which way the light is travelling within the vortex?  Light in a clockwise vortex goes outward from you to the universe.  You are giving light to the world outside your body.  Light in a counter-clockwise vortex is inbound so you receive light.
     To translate these vortexes into a Crystal Layout, the clockwise vortex will have the crystals around you pointing down on the right side of your body and up on the left.  The way the crystal is pointed gives directional flow to the light passing through the crystal.  Each crystal will point in the direction of the next crystal to create a circle of light flow, which results in a vortex.  The counter-clockwise vortex will be the opposite—with the crystals pointing up on the right and down on the left. 
     While you are still working hard to achieve progress on the spiritual path, i.e., en route to enlightenment, your best interest is served by bringing light to your body.  Using the clockwise layout, to send light out, needs to be reserved for the advanced practitioner, who is well past the novice stage.  Sending light out to the universe is greatly appreciated by the Angelic ones, but it leaves the practitioner in a vacuum with no light.  If you are sending light out, you will need to bring light in, because the body will need to be replenished.  Until you really know what you are doing, and until your vibration is quite high, the counter-clockwise vortex is what you need to do, if you do a vortex layout.  It brings light to you.

     Leaving vortexes alone for a moment, I wish to expand on my cautionary note about the power-up layout.  Because such a layout includes a couple of generators, 20 or 30 crystals pointing inward, and several more along on the midline, the flow of light, to which your body is exposed, will be significant.  This many crystals make for a strong layout.  The person receiving too much light may experience shock to the body’s light receptors, which results in vibrational warps, uneven body density, imbalances in light reception, receptor burn-out, and over empowerment in different parts of the body.  The person’s vibration cannot handle the sudden, massive, influx of light frequencies.  In the Hindu traditions, the ‘kriyas’ are a symptom of over-exposure.  You would not want to try this with a person who is just starting to work with crystals, including yourself.  This much light is something you work up to over a period of time and after many layouts. 
     The whole purpose of the spiritual path is to acquire divine light frequencies on the road to enlightenment.  The benefit of the power-up layout is exposure to a significant amount of light.  If your body can work with this much light, the spiritual path accelerates.  The days of crawling along in the dark are gone!  Wake up and let your spirituality run with the light—Power Up! 
The more crystals you add, the more powerful the layout becomes.  The bigger your generators, the stronger the layout.  This, then, is what I mean by the ‘power up layout’.

In the Beginning... Hematite

Sometimes listening to the radio can be amazing, even inspiring. In an interview with a writer, who began his writing career at the tender age of 16, the message from his mentor was that, if he wanted to be a writer, he had to write something every day. I, too, write. But, even with 3 books to my credit, I hesitate to call myself a writer, and for good reason. I am a channel for the foundation of knowledge that came to be two profound books on how divine light works and another on how crystals work and work with divine light. I am not an everyday writer, but I do like the practice of writing.
So, my blog continues.
The thought for today is linked to the work I am doing on my online crystal course, which is taking a very long time to complete. My job keeps me away from home a lot, and lately, I went through a major surgery that gave me a month of pain and a lot of physio to go through to recover.  Progress has been slow.
A couple of days ago, I was working on the presentation for the crystal Hematite.
Many people know Hematite as Alaska diamond. It is black and shiny and can be worked to a smooth finish in just about any shape the stone cutter might wish. Hematite is the stone for the person who is endeavouring to start the spiritual path. It is the stone for bringing the first light frequencies on the road to enlightenment. It is the stone for bringing the first frequencies to whatever material form or mass that has no light. In the beginning, there was Hematite.
Hematite is the stone with which to begin bringing light into form because it works with the black light frequency range. Yes, friends, there is black light frequencies. These are the lowest and slowest frequencies on Earth. Black light will always be the very first frequency to find its way into material form or mass for that very reason. A mass without light is also the lowest and slowest vibration. To be compatible, the first light to come to the mass also needs to be the lowest and slowest vibration.
The discussion that goes with empowering form with light will have to wait for another day, but to begin the empowerment, Hematite provides the first frequencies, which of necessity are black light frequencies.
In the beginning, use Hematite.

2016 Solstice: Empowering the Earth’s Light Energy Grid

    The Solstice that marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere also marks the empowerment of the Earth’s energy grids, also in the northern hemisphere.  The 2016 Solstice was especially empowering because of the occurrence of the full Moon at the same time.

    The time of the full Moon was 1302h UTC, and the time of the Solstice was 2234h UTC.  The fact that the zenith of the Moon was slightly ahead of the zenith of the Sun just adds to the significance, as I will explain later.

    Understanding how the Solstice plays a role in Earth’s empowerment is a bit like a puzzle.  There are a few pieces that need to be explained for the event to make sense.  First up, the Sun is the inter-dimensional portal through which the vast majority of the divine light coming from the higher realms finds its way into our Solar System.  (reference: The Story of Light, Through Heaven’s Gate, Volume 2, Chapter 9.1 “Portals of Light: The Sun”)  The Sun looks like a ball of fire because higher dimensional light collects at the opening as it pours through.

    Second up, because we are in a physical world, physical properties apply.  The role of the full Moon is to create a physical gravitational magnetic pull.  Every planet offers some amount of magnetic pull, which gives effect to the astrological aspects of conjuncts, trines, squares, and so on.  When the Moon aligns directly opposite the Sun (conjunction or full Moon), its effect to increase the magnetic pull of divine light coming through the Sun is greater than at any other time.  (For general interest on this same topic, you may wish to see the role of Mercury, also in Volume 2, Chapter 10.1: “Mercury-Sun-Arcemedus Alignment”.)  The Moon ensures that more light comes.  The timing of being slightly ahead of the Solstice makes the process especially optimal.

    Third, the energy grids on Earth are a network of energy light stations (also see Volume 2, chapter 12, “Light Stations”) and energy corridors, through which the divine light to which Earth is exposed, travel.  Earth’s grids can be compared to the human body’s chakra and chakra distribution systems.  Energy for empowerment is distributed through both these systems. 

    Fourth, the northern hemisphere, more so than the southern, receives more of the Sun’s incoming light because of the angle of the Earth’s tilt.  As a consequence, the northern hemisphere has a more evolved and developed energy grid network.  It is better able to capture and assimilate the divine light to which the Earth is exposed.

    Fifth, again, because we are on a physical world, physical time dictates.  The greatest amount of light comes immediately at the time of the zenith of the Solstice.  The greatest benefit, however, occurs in the week or so following the Solstice.  Time is needed for the light coming from the Sun to find its way into the light stations and energy corridors.  Time is also needed for the light to charge and empower the physical mass of the Earth.

    What light will the 2016 Solstice bring?  Absolutely, the light coming to Earth is strictly consistent with the Earth’s current vibration.  There are light frequencies that are higher and frequencies that are lower, but the range of divine light frequencies that are attracted are limited to exactly what the planet’s vibration allows.

    In conclusion, this year’s northern Summer Solstice stands among the more memorable events involving the Earth’s light acquisition.  The full Moon alignment adds significantly to the pull of divine light to our planet at the moment of its greatest flow.

Crystals for the Schizophrenic

I was recently asked if there were a crystal that would be helpful for a person with Schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia was a topic of interest for me several years ago.  I did not find it to be complex, but there is a significant amount of background knowledge to draw upon before the answer becomes clear.  See references at the end of this article.

Young, or more accurately, baby souls come to Earth as part of their initial dive into consciousness.  Being neonates in the soul department, the soul of the schizophrenic has very little experience on Earth and is, therefore, not adept at living here or anywhere else in the universe.  The soul has very little connection with its incarnation and, therefore, is in a deficit position in sending light to its incarnation.  Such light, divine energy, or spirit is very essential and necessary and must be strong enough to maintain the vibration of the person in a healthy way.  The soul of the schizophrenic needs to build up the light within its incarnation to acquire a viable “person’s” vibration that can withstand the assaults from any of the negative energies that may be present in the local environment (including immediately local higher dimensional environment).  

Without a “viable” vibration, the schizophrenic person is subject to the invasion of mischievous lower fourth (or so) dimensional entities.  Delusions of grandeur are the primary symptoms.  These delinquent entities pose as known beings... Jesus, King Henry VIII, or whoever... by taking over the body and acting out.  This invasion is possible because the Etheric Magnetic Field is weak and most often has warps, holes, or black and dense areas that are vulnerable to the invasion of a foreign spirit.  So, with a weak etheric field, the body is occupied by two very different spirits.  The invading entity usually has the stronger will and, more or less, takes over for a time until it gets bored or has somewhere else to go.  Don’t get the idea that these entities are strong, they are not.  They are predatory, but only to extremely weak individuals, who are weaker than themselves.

The solution...
1.  is to strengthen the etheric magnetic field, which emanates from the physical body.  Simply add light.  Clear quartz and grounding stones such as Hematite, Obsidian, and Onyx 
((((Careful!!!  Real Onyx is almost impossible to get as it is almost always agate that has been treated.  “Natural black onyx is extremely rare, so the commercial black variety is nearly always agate that has been stained by the sugar-sulphuric acid treatment, soaked in a sugar solution and then heated in sulphuric acid to carbonize the sugar.”
From: Firefly Guide to Gems, by Cally Oldershaw ))))
are helpful.  Quartz to bring the light, and black grounding to hold it.  No need to use any of the more specialized crystals.  Bringing light is the objective.

2. The most effective treatment I know of would be my copper energy bed.  Go here ( to see the write up on crystal layouts including the section on the copper energy bed.  The copper bed, which is a sheet of roofing copper 7x3’ and is also discussed in The Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment, Chapter 2, “The Etheric Body”, is a natural energy conductor.  It accelerates the etheric magnetic field and, by doing so, shifts the warps, holes, damaged spots, and dense areas of the afflicted person’s etheric field.  It bring the etherics into their natural state of flow.  With a natural flow, free of warps and holes, the etherics can properly attract and repel vibrations, as it is supposed to do, according to the appropriate state of the person’s vibration.  It thereby removes the vulnerability of the person to the invasion of nasty spirits.

3. Another solution is to use the principles of our Earthly, free-will zone.  Mischievous lower fourth dimensional entities and all other other-worldly beings are required to respect our free will on Earth.  Simply tell those invading spirits to get lost.  If they come back, tell them again.  The schizophrenic person needs to exercise his/her free will and tell the invaders to go away.  You cannot do it for them.  He said: “Be Gone, foul entities!!”.  The protection ritual should have the same effect.  It goes as follows:
“I call upon the great white light to come down within to surround and protect me.  Beings of light, who are working for my best and highest interest are invited to be here now and to work with me.  All other entities must now leave and are commanded to do so. So be it.”

Keep in mind that schizophrenic persons are the incarnations of really new souls that have next to no experience on any realm of consciousness let alone on a world with the challenges of the third dimension on Earth.  The light from the crystals will help, a copper energy bed will help, and the expression of free will should be effective, but the person’s soul has a long way to go on its journey into consciousness.  The soul needs to learn how to connect with its incarnation and how to send light and in the proper quantity and quality.  Such learning at the soul level takes a number of incarnate experiences to accomplish.  Perhaps, bring your expectations of the healing outcome for the schizophrenic person into line with the nature of the condition.

Getting past the myths about how our spiritual bodies and the crystals work requires effort and discernment.  No pill, no pablum, just work and an open mind to the truth.
