Getting Started: In September 2016, my cousin asked if I could do crystal readings for The Mondrian Hotel on Sunset. "Of course!" I replied. Though I had years of experience with tarot readings and crystals separately, I did not know much about crystal readings.
The Beginning: That night I researched crystal readings online and emailed metaphysical schools to see if they offered crystal reading classes but had no luck. Within the next few days, I meditated for a method and wrote it down. After emailing the method to one of my teachers Naha, she suggested having the client pick three rather than two crystals to create a grid. After practicing, the technique felt right!
First Reading: Halloween 2016 came around, and I was all set up to do readings at the Mondrian Hotel for Dive In Pool Theatre, an outdoor movie screening by the pool. I started off with a reading for the owner and then their head of marketing, did some readings for the girls at the PR firm, attendees of the event, and friends who dropped in. The readings were detailed and clear. Everyone enjoyed the experience!
The Method: After meeting the client, we close our eyes together and tune in. I ask for one to a few important and succinct messages in alignment with the client's highest self and guidance for his or her greatest good. We then open our eyes, I deliver the messages, we select crystals, continue the reading, and close. A beautiful and effective aspect of crystal readings is that the receiver experiences a mini-healing and reading in one. To honor time and number of attendees, the readings are kept focused and brief.
Insights: There are many forms of divination including tarot, oracle, crystals, sticks, coffee mugs, astrology and numerology. These divinatory tools assist with our connection to the divine. Experimenting with many forms and seeing what feels right is a great way to go. One may adopt what resonates and let go of what does not.
