Love Packages Sent From Earth: Crystals


Crystals are little love packages sent from the earth!  Each stone has its own vibrational blueprint depending on how, when and where they were formed. They hold millions of years of the earth’s history and since ancient times have been providing healing and guidance to our race. I’m sure you’ve seen crystals, maybe even been attracted to one or 2? These gems can help move you toward physical and emotional joy! Now that you know that, why not try working with a few? There are stones in various shapes, colors, sizes, textures and vibrational frequencies and they are all beautiful! Each one has healing properties for one or more physical or emotional ailments. Have headaches? Try amethyst. Back pain? Blue Kyanite. Sadness? Carnelian. Below are some commonly used crystals along with some of the situations they can assist with. Bear in mind however that the effects of each crystal can be different for each person.*

How to Purchase and Choose Your Crystals

You can purchase these on line. A couple of my favorite sites are: &

An even better way to purchase these gems is in person. In the Boston area I recommend:  7 Stars, Cambridge and Enchanted Fox, Medway. Also Kyle at Crystal Concentrics opens his crystal space in Arlington about once a month.

crystal-shoppeWhen you go crystal shopping plan to spend a little time there, ‘trying them on’. First stand in front of the display, close your  eyes and take some deep breaths. (Don’t worry about the staff thinking you’re crazy. In these type of stores they are used to this and are well versed in these methods of intuition.) Then open your eyes and see which 1 or 2 crystals are calling your attention.  Pick them up one at a time and hold them in your hand for a bit, see how they make you feel. Try a few of each of the crystals that got your attention and then purchase your favorite either based on the color, size, shape, or feeling it gives to you. Practice being open and  receptive and you will be drawn to a stone that will have meaning for you and will move you energetically toward whatever you need at this time.

How to Work with Your Crystals

Wear them!  Either put them in a little satchel in your pocket or tape them directly onto your skin. Women can wear them in their bras. For the latter make sure you’ve purchased smooth crystals.

Wear them as jewelry!  The 2 on-line sites and 3 store-front sites I mentioned above all sell crystal jewelry. Another fabulous crystal jewelry site is: Lunar Skye. This is a company based in MA and owner Trish, a Reiki Practitioner purchases quality gems, makes each piece herself and infuses them with Reiki energy.bracelet-protection

Sleep with them under your pillow.  Just that.  So simple.

Meditate with them. Just a quick 5 minute sit-down, holding the crystal(s). Tune into your breathing and then simply listen to what the crystal might be saying to you or how it might be making you feel. If you’re not used to tuning into your intuition or higher powers this may take some time. Keep at it. It’s worth it!

Create Crystal Grids.  A crystal grid is an arrangement of crystals in a geometric shape. There are grid templates that you can purchase but I just like to make my own designs and set it with what ever intention I have at the time. Place a stone center piece and then play with symmetrical arrangements around that. You can also write your intention on piece of paper and place it under your center piece. Try it, it’s fun!


Use a Wish Box. One final way that I often use crystals when I have a wish or goal I’m working on is to write that down on a small piece of paper and insert it into a decorative box. Then I choose a crystal that I feel would help me progress in these areas. Just trust your intuition on choosing the stones. At first it is uncomfortable but soon you will ‘just know’ which crystals are ‘right’.  Once chosen, I put a couple of that type of crystal in the box with the wish/goal and watch the magic happen.


Whatever you do, do not just throw your crystals in your purse or stick them in a drawer or on a night stand. You must cultivate a relationship with them for them to do the most intense work. Like a relationship – you must feed it or it will dwindle and maybe even die out.

How To Cleanse Your Crystals

sCleanse your Crystals at least once per week and more often if you use them daily. It’s also a good idea to clear your crystal when you first get them.washing-crystalsCrystals can gather energy from thoughts, touch, emotions, etc. so cleansing and recharging is important to keep your crystals working optimally.

The simplest ways to recharge your Crystals:

  • Run under cool, clean Water for 2-3 minutes (most crystals can be wet but not all so check before you drown them!)
  • Submerge in a bowl of Dry Rice overnight
  • Submerge in a bowl of Sea Salt overnight
  • Set out in the Moonlight overnight
  • Pass them through the Smoke of a sage or incense
  • Play them some high vibe meditational Music.

So if you choose to try using crystals to improve your health and wellbeing, let me know how it goes for you. As you begin to tune in to crystals and their vibrations you will become more aware of many additional vibrations around you. You will also likely want to learn more about Crystal Healing as you discover its benefits. There are many more ways to work with these Gems and many more gems available to assist you in your search for health and happiness. I will be happy to share my knowledge with you! Bring your crystals in when you come in for a Reiki or Life Coaching session and I will infuse them with some Reiki energy which will enhance their strength and healing power.

Enjoy your love packages!

Receive Remote Reiki Healing

Reiki Surrogate for Reiki Distance Healing

Remote Reiki, Distance Reiki, Reiki of Greater Boston

When To Use Remote Reiki (aka Distance Reiki)

There are times and situations where conducting an in-person Reiki treatment is not possible. In most of these cases the client wanting to receive Reiki is physically too far away from the Reiki practitioner for them to get together. Another situation where Distance treatment is best is when the client is contagious with illness. These are the most common situations but there may be others where an absentee session is warranted. Distance healing is a convenient alternative when circumstances prohibit a regular, hands-on, treatment.

How It Works

You can request Reiki healing for someone else but ideally they will give their permission for treatment.  If the person is unable to comprehend such as when in a coma, etc. then it is up to the caregiver and Reiki practitioner to decide the best course of action. The goal would be to assist the client without going against his principles, religion, etc.


When Distance Reiki is requested I will need to know some basic information about the client:

  • What are the mental/emotional/spiritual issues are they wanting to work on?
  • What is their name?
  • What is a convenient time for them to receive the Reiki energy?
  • What address will they be at at that time?
  • An image of the client will be requested if we have not met.

This information can be exchanged via email, text, phone or Skype. At the time of communication the client can ask any question that they may have and I may have further questions of their health, etc. A brief communication update will also take place a day or 2 after the session, as well, for follow-up.

Client Actions

At the time of the healing treatment the client can continue doing whatever they had planned to be doing at the time of treatment. However, often clients tell me they get very sleepy at the time of treatment so if at all possible I like to schedule the sessions when people can be relaxing, resting or sleeping.


Sending the Remote healing energies involves visualization and mental focus on the part of the Reiki Practitioner. Distance Reiki works according to a rule, which holds that we are all connected, as we are all made of energy and part of a larger whole.

There are a few different methods that Reiki Practitioners use in conducting Distance Treatments. I personally usually use a surrogate, which is basically a substitute or a stand in for the client. My surrogate comes in the form of a stuffed animal named Walter!

Reiki Surrogate for Reiki Distance Healing

I go through a regular in person treatment but share the energy through Walter who is embodying the client after the I invoke certain symbols that assist in directing energies and send healing Reiki energy across time and space. When these symbols are enacted a oneness between client and Reiki Practitioner is enhanced so that there is no duality, no distance to separate us..

Client Experience

In most cases clients report feeling a overall sense of calm and peace during and after their Distance healing. Other sensations reported are heat, cold, tingling, visions, premonitions, crying, etc. All reactions are perfectly acceptable and are simply the person’s way of processing the energy to clear their blockages in order to begin to prepare the body for healing. Physical, mental or spiritual issues may improve with one treatment or may need a series of sessions if it is a chronic condition.


Distance clients report improvement on the physical, emotional or spiritual issue they are working on for example:

  • “The pain in my back has subsided.”
  • “My headache is gone.”
  • “My stress level is much lower.”
  • “I feel my sadness less deeply and less often.”
  • “My patience in finding my life’s purpose is stronger.”

In addition, most clients report an improvement in their sleeping patterns and an over all sense of well being.

I am aware that Reiki in general and Distance Reiki in particular are difficult concepts to buy into for most people. Please let me know if you have questions and I will do my best to answer. I recommend trying a session or two as the best way to comprehend it all and experience it directly.

Good Morning. How’d You Sleep Last Night?

Sleep Deprivation, dangers of sleep deprivation,

Well, it seems that no one can fall asleep! My last 3 Reiki clients presented insomnia as their number one issue. What is going on?! Too much is going on that’s what. How many irons on the fire can you juggle before you get burned?

Did you know that consistent lack of sufficient sleep is dangerous causing serious health and lifestyle problems? Here are some ramifications of sleep deprivation:

Kills Sex Drive (See how I put this at the top of my list?)

Sleep specialists say that sleep-deprived people report lower libidos and less interest in sex due to depletion in testosterone and energy and an increase in sleepiness, and tension.  

Encourages Depression

Over time, lack of sleep and sleep disorders can contribute to the symptoms of depression. In a 2007 study of 10,000 people, those with insomnia were five times as likely to develop depression as those without.

Causes Weight Gain

Not only does sleep loss appear to stimulate appetite. It also stimulates cravings for high-fat, high-carbohydrate foods!

Increases risk for serious Health Diseases

Lack of sleep pushes your body into the ‘fight or flight’ mode which increases adrenaline raising heart rate, blood pressure and cortisol (the stress drug) causing:

  • Heart disease
  • Heart attack
  • Heart failure
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes

Causes Accidents

Both major disasters like 3 Mile Island & Chernobyl and every day accidents/public safety hazards like work injuries and car accidents have connections to sleep loss.

Decreases Cognitive Function

Lack of sleep impairs attention, alertness, concentration, reasoning, problem solving and memory.

Ages Skin’s Appearance

Pasty skin,  puffy, dark eye circles and fine lines will stay with you with chronic lack of sleep.

Wow! That’s scary. Now you see, we must get serious about our sleep. We really can’t be at our best with out it.


How much sleep is ideal? According to the National Sleep Foundation 7-9 Hours for adults to 64 yrs. of age is required for ideal functioning.

My next Quarterly Newsletter- Health & Happiness will include a comprehensive article on techniques guaranteed to put you into dreamland. Until then make sure you are following these basic, common sense rules:

  • No caffeine after 2:00 pm (you know what has caffeine right? Coffee, tea, chocolate, soda, energy drinks, ice cream, etc.)
  • No sugar after 2:00 pm
  • Try to shut down your computer and other electronic devices at least 2 hours prior to bed time
  • Shut all electronic devices off and leave them outside of your sleep area. That includes your phone!
  • Turn any digital clocks away from you and/or cover them with a cloth. (reduce EMFs)
  • No TV in the bedroom.
  • Get physical exercise during the day, at least 3 hours prior to bedtime.
  • Ween yourself off of sedatives/sleeping pills if you are using them. They have side effects just as serious as insomnia!
  • Have a comfy mattress and pillows.
  • Shut off/block light.
  • Insure quiet in your sleep area and if this is not possible use a white noise machine or just pop in some ear plugs or ear-buds with beautiful, sleepy-time music like this:  Marconi Union-Weightless.

Okay. Night-night.
