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 subject of children is fairly close to my heart, especially since becoming a grandmother and I therefore would like to share some of my thoughts.
I was recently made aware of a number of issues concerning children and energy work. Some were about healers purporting to be able to locate and address serious physical symptoms and another one was about a child using crystals in order to clear negativity in the world and offering private sessions to the public. I find this fairly alarming, mostly because it involves children but also because a number of energy therapy practitioners are (justifiably) becoming fodder for negative journalism. 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
I recently attended a show where there were quite a number of complementary therapies stands offering taster sessions to the public. This is a wonderful way of promoting our work since it gives people a chance to try a therapy before committing to a full appointment. All in all it was hugely enjoyable until I noticed that a very young child, that was obviously healthy and well, was receiving a form of energetic ‘healing’ on one of the stands. I know that the child was healthy since it had passed our stand a while before and was full of beans, cheeky and running around. It was unfortunately obvious that the child was not comfortable receiving the therapy and the whole thing came across like some form of abuse and an intrusion to the child’s personal space. It was uncomfortable to watch, to the point that I had to keep myself from intervening, which was unfortunately not an option. I would hasten to say that the therapist obviously meant well, but then they could not see the child’s expression and the parent was looking at another stand. Continue reading
When you click on ‘healing courses’ or similar words on Google, there are millions of responses, which is great, but poses the question as to how one goes best about promoting or finding a healing course or organisation. The overload of information can be hugely confusing, especially for prospective students who are newcomers to healing, but also to course providers who may not be all that experienced in communicating on the Internet. Lately we have overhauled our website and having spent some time with this, I would like to share my thoughts on the matter. Continue reading
