Many people think crystals have become very trendy lately but the truth is that their healing properties have been recognized for thousands of years.

Crystals play an important role in enhancing my daily life and those of my family and clients.

Not only do I use them in every energy healing session with private clients, I use them in group workshops, have them all around my home and in my healing studio. I wear them as jewelry (diamonds, anyone?), carry them in my pockets and hold them during meditation.

Based on where I feel blockages in my clients’ chakras, I often recommend crystal healing bags for them to work with.


Because they aid in raising the vibration of everything – especially your chakras!

Your chakras are seven spinning whirlpools, lined up along the center line of your body, like jewels on a necklace.

These whirlpools are spinning vortexes of life force energy. They are, in fact, the organizational centers of how we send energy out into the world and how we assimilate energy into our bodies.

Each chakra contains a blueprint for our optimal physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.  According to Anodea Judith, “what we generate determines what we receive, and in this way it behooves us to work on our chakras and clean up outdated, dysfunctional, or negative programming that may be getting in our way.”

So how do crystals help clear out the blocks in our chakras?

Crystals have been used for millennia to heal and bring balance. They work on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of being as they can realign subtle energies.

How do they do this?

They work through vibration to clear the blockages. Each crystal has its own specific healing characteristics. They each have a natural healing frequency that moves or balances the energy around them.

Crystals have been connected with particular parts of the body and its organs for thousands of years. In the case of the chakras, the vibration of the crystal you are working with corresponds with clearing out each specific energy center or chakra.

In this week’s Energy Healing Toolkit, I share with you the contents of my favorite Heart Chakra crystal healing bag and a beautiful tool to open your heart up to self-love.

In private sessions, we delve deeper into your energy, goals and needs.

Thanks for taking this journey with me.

Namaste- Marci

Heart Chakra Crystal Healing

Your Heart Chakra is your energetic center of love, compassion and forgiveness. First for yourself, and then for others. It is the place where you feel gratitude, joy and peace.

Follow these steps for a beautiful Heart Chakra ritual with crystals.

1) For this exercise we are going to use a Rose Quartz and a Clear Quartz crystal. Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, compassion, deep inner healing and feelings of peace. It encourages forgiveness and acceptance for yourself as well as for others.  Clear Quartz is a master healer and amplifies other stones.  It brings clarity on all levels and is a premium tool for affirmation and manifestation work.

2) Clear your crystals before using them as you want their energy to be pure. Wash them under running water or smudge them with sage. You can charge them under the sunlight or full moon.

3) Call in your angels and guides and ask for assistance by saying, “I request help from my angels and guides to open my Heart Chakra to greater self-love.”

4) While holding the cleared crystals over your heart with cupped hands, say five times, “I am happy and I love being me.”
