How can a person learn more about Crystals?

You’re reading this, so you’re on the right track as my advice for all those who wish to learn more about crystals is to read a lot about them, and trust your intuition on which ones feel right for you.  Most crystals have similar properties, and others have properties that manifest differently for different people so there is always more to learn about them. 

How can I benefit the most from crystals?

As individuals, we have our conscious and subconscious mind. The latter is where we open or close ourselves to energy.  Wanting crystal healing consciously isn’t enough.  Setting intentions to bring both the subconscious and the conscious mind into alignment is what I have found yields best results in any type of energy healing. 

Intention setting will be a personal ritual allowing you to find that place within where you can consciously tap into your subconscious.  It will be very individual for each person, so read and find out what others do, and make it your own.

Having the help and support of crystals is important and beneficial but you have to understand that you cannot make them responsible of your own life.  This is why setting intentions is so important; and ultimately, you have to take the necessary actions that commune with your intentions.

How does Energy Work?

Energy vibrates at different levels.  What you feel as good energy is high vibrational energy and what you feel as bad/negative energy is energy that vibrates at a lower level that might be condensed or not (this condensation is also what creates energy blockages).  So the same way tuning forks end up vibrating at the same frequency, so do people around other people.  Energy flows through our body so when there’s a blockage, that free flow is interrupted. 

Natural stones vibrate at a high vibrational level and there are some that have the ability to transmute low vibrational energy into high vibrational energy.  When you wear crystals, these help you vibrate at their level but they also pick up pollution from the environment and from your own energy.  This is why frequent cleansing is very important.

About Yelisa

I have been interested in crystals and stones ever since I was 14.  I had the luxury of growing up with a mom that was always open to any type of learning that could make us a better person.  I learned Tai chi, astrology, about crystals and their properties, about chakras, meditation and many other self-help and holistic healing techniques.  My favorites always were crystals and meditation.  As a young teenager, I started making jewelry and was able to make it a side business while I worked in a traditional career environment. Through a meditation group, I was introduced to Reiki.  In 2010 I became a mom and felt I wanted to be more present in my daughter’s life. There was not much time leftover after being a full time Stay at Home Mom.  So I learned to prioritize my passion. I combined Reiki, Crystals and Jewelry and found a way to help others live and experience the amazing benefit of Reiki Imbued crystal Jewelry and opened my online shop at

Of My Own Heart

This evening I convinced my 8 year-old son to hop up on my reiki table. “Convince” is too strong a word. I offered him the opportunity and he JUMPED at it. The boy has been raised on reiki and is no stranger to the mystic power of energy healing. But this session was different from previous times.

Little sis had to get in on the action too.

In the past, I’ve offered him reiki when he was sick, injured or just settling into bed.  A very casual and quick affair. Today, he got to come down to my reiki room and lie on the warm table like a “real” reiki client. He listened to the soothing music and smelled the essential oils in the air.

I did a short visualization with him, the one I almost always use with my clients. He connected with the supportive earth energy immediately and the reiki energy passed unhindered into his small but strong body.

I immedietly picked up on some friend drama at school, some communication difficulties and was led into a deeper, sadder experience I wasn’t expecting to touch.

My dear boy has a sad place in his heart. A feeling of not being enough. A feeling that I can all too well relate to.  It wasn’t something we were ready to discuss yet, so I simply cranked up the reiki and let the divine energy do its thing.

I am now inspired to commit more time to giving each of my children more reiki. That doesn’t always have to look like a “table session”. I do have the knowledge and ability to do it “distantly”. This means I can send them healing anytime, anyplace and don’t necessarily have to put my hands on them.

Reiki is literally divinely guided universal life force energy and all that it needs is the opportunity to work. It’s guaranteed to do no harm and always work to the recipient’s highest good. So all I need to do is tune in, set an intention and let it flow. My children will benefit. I will benefit. My community and universe will benefit. I see no wrong there!
