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.
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
So many people call me and ask about ’chakra balancing’ or which crystals to place on chakras, that I want to write something about it. Chakras are subtle energy centres that are situated along the spine. They could be likened to spinning vortexes. There are seven major ones which all relate to experiences and qualities that form part of our life and ultimately also affect the state of our overall health & well being. The state of these chakras can be normal, spinning too fast or too slow; being blocked or even traumatised. Obviously degrees of imbalance can vary from mild to intense. This is a simplified explanation but I hope it makes sense to everyone. Continue reading

Crystal & Energy Healing are therapies that are sadly enough not always taken seriously. They are often ridiculed or even maligned and one could think that this is because of blinkered views, ignorance or an absence of ‘scientific’ proof etc., although I personally feel that part of such prejudiced views could also exist because our therapy is not always promoted in the best way possible. One could, of course just ignore things and only focus on the positive feedback our there, but this would not really help to make a difference! Continue reading
