The other day I saw something written about ‘sending’ peace to the world with the use of crystals in mandalas and there are indeed many groups and also individuals that do this and have done so for many years. For some reason, I felt the urge to look at this subject a little more profoundly, because so far, all this ‘sending out peace into the world’ has not really made much difference, or so it seems… Continue reading
Symbols can affect us strongly on profound levels which is why we have to be fastidious with their use in subtle energy work. We often place clients in patterns of crystals such as ovals, circles, squares, diamond shapes or triangles. These patterns all relate to the human energy field and are universal in what they represent. We also at times use patterns such as 5 or 6 pointed stars, half-moon shapes or when appropriate, crosses, but since these can also relate to religion, belief systems or cultural ways of life, a client is always asked beforehand if they are happy with this.

It has long been established that everything that exists, including us, is made up of energy and what we perceive as the physical world is in fact a sea of energy that vibrates on different levels. This means that we can view ourselves as highly complex beings of energy of which our physical body is but the densest part. As a being of energy, we are hugely affected by the energies in the environment, the energies of others and the energies that we ourselves generate. Once we are aware of this, we can do much to improve our way of life, and this knowledge also forms the foundation of subtle energy therapies. Continue reading
The VHF has often been asked why it does not promote crystal layouts in regard to the chakra system. The reason for this is that addressing chakras with the use of crystals in healing is a highly invasive technique and something that has to be done with great care. Equally, since each Human being is unique and highly complex in his/her energetic make up, one cannot possibly use a set format in regard to the choice of crystals in therapy sessions.
When we first find out about subtle energies, healing, intuitive and personal development, a whole new world opens up for us. Once we start to experience what we have learnt in theory, this world becomes very real and it is then important to stay well grounded and centred in order to avoid getting caught up for too long in the inevitable pitfalls such as delusion, glamour, escapism and similar issues.

Since the current recession began to bite a strange phenomenon has been emerging, which can only be described as a retrograde movement affecting parts of complementary medicine. Quite a few certificated practitioner courses have been shortened from a couple of years to a few days; courses where hands on experience and tutor led tuition are essential, are now available via correspondence. It is possible to set up as a practitioner after a day or two of instruction and qualified therapists who want to add other therapies to their expertise, can do this in some instances in a matter of days rather than years.

Many moons ago I facilitated workshops on the subject of Angels, based on research, well thought-out books and my own experiences of energy work and spiritual development. Over the years, however, I feel that the subject has become a little befuddled and it may well be time to get back to basics and look at the bottom line in regard to the Angelic, especially in relation to the world, humanity and complementary medicine!

Schorl is a beautiful crystal that has a very dense, heavy and grounding energy. The colour is black, and like most black crystals it can absorb negative and static energies, which is why it is suitable to use near electrical appliances and computers with the intent to minimise their negative emanations. It is probably the most fitting crystal for this purpose, especially since it is also very hardy and does not get damaged as easily as other crystals. Continue reading
Many people have asked me over the years why we do not offer correspondence courses in crystal & energy healing and I feel it may be worthwhile to elaborate on this topic. It is my view that one cannot possibly learn how to be an effective practitioner in our field without ‘hands on’ training and supervised practice, for quite a number of reasons. Continue reading
