Background: In September 2016, one of my uber hip cousins who works in PR 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 the best method and wrote it down. After emailing the method to one of my teachers Naha, she suggested adding one crystal to have three instead of two (creating 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/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, I keep the readings focused and brief.
More Crystal Readings: Last year I met a magical and incredible woman, Michelle, creator of Holisticism. She connected me with her friend Taylor and ever since, the opportunity to share crystal readings continues to grow.
Discovery: In the reading process and journey, I have come to understand that there are many forms of divination - tarot, crystals, sticks, coffee mugs, astrology, numerology, +++ - but ultimately the most important factor is the clarity of the reader, the purity of his/her channel, and to what source he/she is connecting.
Divination Tools: I received my first tarot deck at age 12 but did not read for others until 2012. Around the end of 2016, I began noticing how tarot kept me slightly in the mental body due to knowledge of the cards. With crystal readings, I feel more space for direct connection. Since then, I have experimented with a few hour-long readings without any tools. The "readee" and I found them to be quite detailed, clear, helpful, and accurate. However, for most events, clients prefer tools such as crystals.
Conclusion: We all have access to our higher self and the one true source through our intuitive channel; however, I believe that the manner and degree to which we all connect varies. As readers and healers, it is so important that we keep our channels pure and clear, only delivering guidance for the highest self and good of the person for which we are reading. Sure we can get an infinite number of messages, but that which we choose to deliver in alignment with the one true source is key. It is important for those with psychic gifts to empower others by teaching and helping them learn how to connect.
