A Few Things, Crystals & Remote Group Healing for the Weekend of the 28th of November, 2015

As the world keeps on doing its thing, which includes many aspects pertaining directly to the shift in consciousness, my time has freed up quite a bit now as I have finished my writing studies. I have been taking it easy over the last fortnight as it has been a mentally straining year — I don’t think I ever adjusted to the regular deadlines I had to meet.
There were two semesters with four courses in each semester. The results for the second semester are not yet back, but I did get four A’s in the first, which included two A+’s. That was a good outcome considering the effort I put in. Those regulars of the site will know that this year has probably been lacking in terms of content and the main reason was because of all the time I was dedicating to the writing Diploma.
I do very much appreciate all the help others have given in terms of keeping the site and various elements connected into it, going, and give thanks to all of them. You can get a good idea about everyone’s role through the about page in the menu.
It does however take a great deal of my time on a daily basis to keep everything running; with the new direction of the site, my plans will include migrating to a new platform and webserver (I have to decide on a dedicated server or not as well), a re-design (what it looks like), implementing advertisements to provide financial support as I can’t keep on investing my time without a bit of consistent help (I haven’t ‘worked’ / had a regular income since early 2013), and writing more original articles. As some of you know, this is only part of what I do in life as I am also a healing facilitator through various modalities including energy healing and past life regression (QHHT) — which I am yet to fully move into because of my recent use of time (studying and self-healing from being in the corporate world many years).
While it may not be obvious, a lot of what I do in relation to the site here, ties into teachings around the system of life and spirituality; many people contact me directly and/or read my articles and those of others which are shared. I am yet to actually teach through workshops/classes in person, but a number of sensitives / intuitives have seen future visions of me doing this, which I find fascinating. One of the reasons I studied writing this year is so that I can publish a few books in the future, and one of them will be focused on this. (I honestly don’t understand why a person is not taken seriously until they are going around teaching people in a class setting — including having published books — as I find I can reach a great deal of more people through the written word)
I wanted to share a few crystal focused posts I have made on my Facebook wall over the past month or so. The first crystal below (Malachite) is one I haven’t posted yet, but is a photo which I took yesterday.

Malachite is a very protective stone, absorbing and protecting from negative energies and radiation (including electromagnetic). It is a good one to keep near microwaves and TV’s for example. It’s also a stone of travel as it can help with the fear of flying, especially if empowered and focused on before the trip.

Its name is said to have originated from the Greek word for mallow — 'malache' — because of its colour. It was used to make jewellery and ornaments as far back as 3000 BC in ancient Egypt.

This crystal can provide motivation around taking action towards needed changes in life. It aids creativity, enhances the development of intuition and is a strong stone for the heart — both physical and in terms of emotional healing. 
Here is a celestite cluster of mine. Said to be an angelic stone, it is a powerful healing crystal that is able to help purify the aura, as well as stimulate psychic abilities. In Latin it is called 'coelestis', which means ‘heavenly’.
Celestite can give courage to those who suffer from agoraphobia (fear of crowds), or even public speaking. It is a great tool to use with meditation as it not only provides mental clarity but also helps to block out distracting noise.
Connecting with the angelic realm can be easier when focusing through this mineral. Those trying to consciously astral project can also benefit from having celestite nearby.
A celestite cluster in a space can help with the emotional state of people in that area. Other benefits of this crystal are stress and anxiety relief, as well as helping with obsessive behaviours. This crystal can be used to work with the transpersonal point, also known as the 8th chakra.

Here is a clear quartz point of mine, sitting within a partly formed cluster. The word, ‘crystal’, comes from the Greek word, ‘krystallos’, which means ice. Clear quartz is said to contain all the colours in the light spectrum and that the atoms grow in perfect 'double-helix-ical' patterns, like our DNA.
It is a universal crystal as it has many uses — the natural formation at the tip can determine some of the more specific methods of use. It has the ability to amplify energy, such as when it is used for healing purposes, but it can also boost the effectiveness of other crystals. It assists with creating a clearer channel and connection, going out through a person’s transpersonal point and earth star, to the other side. 
A clear quartz is great to place around electric based devices and equipment, as it can absorb some of the radiation which can impact our health. 
It can help with concentration, as well as retaining what you are learning at the time. 
For healing, it’s a great choice. Along with being a cleansing crystal for negative energy, it is like a soul cleanser in terms of clearing and aligning the auric layers and the energy centres of the body. It can also help to release negative energy which may have been absorbed through people, or situations.
A few interesting things:
- Australian Aborigines used quartz in rain rituals.
- Ancient Japanese believed quartz formed from the breath of a white dragon, and regarded it as representing perfection.
- Clear quartz formed into spheres have been used as crystal balls to predict the future at least since the middle ages. 
Here is a smoky quartz crystal of mine. Smokey quartz is the national gem of Scotland — their national sceptre contains a large smoky quartz crystal on top. 
- Grounding (a root chakra stone)
- Physical and psychic protection
- Removes negative energy and transmutes the energy into positive
- Helps against radiation and electromagnetic smog
- Assists with lifting depression
For those taking part in our remote group healing session this weekend, please let us all know so we are aware of who will be there with us, by replying via a comment here or sending along an email via the Contact & About link through the Menu. You can find current and past sessions via the 'Weekly Healing' link in the menu, as well as links to feedback focused articles discussing some of the work this group gets up to outside of our primary healing intentions.

The length of the session is 20 minutes. To locate what time and day this is for you, see the below. If you want to know about the process, read the information below and if you're not sure how to heal distantly, keep reading. If you have any questions, feel free to post a comment here or contact me.

What is the intention behind these remote healing sessions? A lot of people who take part have healed before and are trained healers. But you don't have to be. You could be doing this for the first time. Or, you may just want to be part of the group and only take on a receiving role.

The first focus that I like us to have with every session, is to send healing energy to those taking part within the group. Additionally we may have other intentions to include, such as sending healing energy out to the Earth, where it needs it. One example may be to help with the radiation situation resulting from the leaking occurring at Fukushima in Japan. Alternatively we can switch off and trust that the energy going through us is being used in a positive manner via the group, and where it is needed at that time.

Alternatives to joining on time

For those that are unable to make the exact specified time above, here are two alternatives that you could use.

You can do the session out of time. This is a term I use for those that want to join, but cannot join at the exact time, so they perform the session within say, 12 hours before or 12 hours after, with the strong intention of being part of the particular session in question. This is just as effective as performing the session at the specified time. Your intention here is important, and your acceptance (mentally) around this is also key. What I mean here is that if you don't think this is going to work, then that will be a block for you.

The second option is to set your intentions to join the session just before going to sleep at night. While we dream, our astral body splits off and simultaneously can be very active in the higher dimensions. We can set intentions upon falling asleep to perform certain actions during this period of time, including healing others or being part of a healing group. Time works differently outside of this dimension, meaning your intentions don't have to be time specific as well. Please see this article here which covers this method in more detail and which includes some information from Charles Webster Leadbeater.

Instructions for everyone - Connecting into the session and the general process

Once you are ready to begin, set the intention that you want to connect in with this group's remote healing session. You can do this in a number of ways, from visualising a group of people in a circle, to naming the source of the session in your mind (‘transients remote healing session’) Think and focus on what feels right to you to connect in and to be part of this event.

If you're still not sure of how to connect in, then just trust that it will all happen automatically simply from being at the stage you are now, in the space you're at and with your original intention to take part by responding to the event on here or via email.

You may now want to focus on a specific health issue that you have, or you may be feeling a certain way emotionally that you may think is no longer needed to be felt. Focus on this intention for a moment so that you're clear of what you want to get out of the session from receiving the groups energy.

Otherwise, if you simply wish to have your energetic system (mental/emotional/physical/spiritual) rejuvenated, balanced, aligned, strengthened, etc, just then trust that this will occur naturally during the session.

You can now begin by directing the energy into the group in whatever way you feel is best.

If you are taking part only to receive, you can now have that intention that you're receiving from the group. For those receiving, you may be laying on your back on a comfortable surface or you may be sitting or in a meditative position. Whatever is comfortable for you. If you are only receiving, you may feel that you do not require the full 20 minutes of the session, or you may wish to stay there longer and rest after the 20 minutes depending on how your feeling.

For everyone else, depending on your technique and what feels right to you, after a period of time, if you feel you just want to receive, then you may want to lay down, or get more comfortable for that purpose. You can always set your intention that your healing will continue on for the full time period of that session, while you also receive, if you wish to do so.

The way I look at this, is that there are no laws in place or rules that govern this, like most things in day to day life on Earth. So just trust that the healing is continuing for the full length of the session for the whole group. Otherwise, you know that even if you are sending the healing out, that you are also receiving because you’re part of the group.

Below I will include information for those who are new to this, or who feel they need more information around the whole process.

Before connecting into the session

Make sure you're in a quiet place where you will not be interrupted. You may want to light a candle, burn some incense, or play some calming meditative type music. You might have some crystals placed nearby you.

There are a number of aspects around having an atmosphere that you feel comfortable in, to take part. But in the end, we don’t have to have any of these things as it's all about our intention and how focused we are during the session.

I sometimes use earplugs if there is a noise outside the room which cannot be avoided. Some may find noise welcoming so that they can better hone their concentration during their session.

It’s probably best to be sitting during the session, unless you are only receiving. This way you won’t have the chance of falling asleep or be in such a comfortable state that your mind starts to wander and get distracted.

You could sit with your legs crossed against a wall with a comfortable pillow, blanket or cover under you (and possibly behind), or sit on a comfortable chair or sofa.

I treat remote healing like I do with meditation. I have a similar atmosphere and sitting position.

Beginning early
Starting five minutes beforehand is probably a good idea, as you may have a process you want to go through first or you may simply want to get the atmosphere/area set-up for the session. Jumping right in at the exact time may be a bit of a rush.

Clearing your energy
I usually close my eyes and clear my energy before I take part in meditation or distant healing. I have an article written up below for that process,

I find it very helpful to go through a relaxation process beforehand as well. I travel through each part of my body, telling it to relax. This helps not only the body become more physically relaxed, but also the mind. Within my article ‘Meditation Techniques’ below, you will find a short section titled ‘Relaxation and Energy Clearing’ for more information around this.

Remote Healing

When you're ready to begin after your initial processes and connecting into the group, with your eyes closed in a comfortable position, start to visualise bright white energy or light, coming down from above your head. Visualise it being directed down through the top of your head, down into your body. Then imagine and visualise it being sent out to the group.

You may want to direct the energy down through your arms, out through your hands. You may want to direct the energy out through your heart energy centre. You could visualise the healing energy coming down and then directly out through you, to the group in a more expanded/larger visualisation. This is really up to you, so try and connect into your intuition here and see what feels right to you.

If you're not sure, just think of it coming out of your hands. You may then feel that the palms of your hands need to be facing out or upwards.

If the colour of the energy changes from white to another colour as you direct the energy out to the group and/or have the intention that its flowing to the group, then just trust that this colour is needing to be sent. If you find your moving your hands in a certain motion and you're not sure why, don’t judge it, just allow it to happen.

Depending on your belief system and what feels right for you, just before beginning the healing, you may want to ask for assistance from spirit guides, ascended masters, specific angels, etc. I have had sensitive's tell me that they have seen specific beings around me when I heal, so I usually take this into consideration during a healing.

You may want to expand further on where this energy comes from. You could envisage you’re higher self-sending the energy down through you. You could see it as coming from the pool of universal energy, or from ‘source’ for example. What is important here is that it's not your energy, but energy coming down through you and which is directed by you. You're always acting as a conduit.

If you get distracted with other thoughts, try focusing on your breathing and breathe a bit deeper than you usually do.

For sending the healing energy, you don’t have to perform the above technique for the whole 20 minutes. You can start it off at the beginning, say for the first five or ten minutes and then set the intention that it will continue for the rest of the session. You can then focus on your breathing or try another meditative technique during the rest of the time. You will be receiving the whole time, but you may want to go and lay down at this point also.

We all experience this in different ways, so just be open to whatever comes to you and try not to think too much, just let it happen.

Ending the session

If you asked for outside assistance with the healing, you could now thank them now for taking part.

At the end of the session, you may want to clear your energy. See the section above on that.

It is common that after receiving healing that we require additional fluids. So make sure you drink some water shortly after, or simply be aware that this can occur. This can sometimes be ongoing over the next few days as the body may be cleansing itself.

Take it easy afterwards. For some it may be the end of the day, but for others it may be the beginning.

Technique to open each chakra

This technique came to me during the early stages of our first remote healing. I sometimes use an energy/meditation technique which opens up my chakras so that I am more receptive to... what I need to be, and which can also assist with a few other things depending on what you're doing. I had the feeling that I needed to share that with anyone interested. I will explain the process here.

This technique can be used before meditation, before healing, before mediumship/clairvoyance work, before performing any energy work... just some of the reasons why you may wish to do this.

While this may sound complicated and time consuming, because I have done this many times now it all happens very fast for me. But when I first started doing this, it took a lot longer. With your eyes closed in your preferred position, first focus on your base chakra. Imagine a closed in red lotus flower (like a budding flower) in the position of your base chakra, facing down below you. (upside-down) If you're not sure of what a lotus flower looks like, look it up and then you will have a very good idea.

Visualise this flower opening up, a few petals at a time until they are all open. Then imagine a bright red light coming out of the centre of this flower, which is an energy centre. This chakra is now very open, active and ready.

You may feel that white light is best for you, instead of the colour that represents that chakra. That is fine.

Now move onto the next chakra, the sacral which is the colour orange and repeat the process until you have completed this process will all seven chakras. You will find the positions of the chakras and the colours by running a search in a search engine if you need to.

A few things to note... I no long think of a flower when doing this process. I think of the area as an energy centre opening up. So over time you may change the process to something that feels best for you, or you may keep it as it is.

Some may suggest you reverse this process at the end of whatever it is you're doing, as in close down each energy centre. I don’t personally believe this is necessary as I think we should be as open as we can, all the time, as we are energy beings. I don’t think it's good for us to ever close down our chakras. If we need protection, we can create that protection around our whole energy system. So this is a personal choice, but if you do choose to do this, just visualise the light dimming out on each chakra, but not totally, and the petals of the flower closing.

You may not realise, but the sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat and third eye chakras also come out the back of your body, not just the front. Optionally you may feel that you should work on both sides. Just imagine the chakra on the opposite side of your body also opening up.

Sending energy through the heart

This also came up during the first remote healing session here.

If you're not already aware, learn about where exactly the heart chakra is before proceeding.

When you're visualising the energy coming down through your crown chakra, channel it down through your third eye, through your throat chakra and down into your heart chakra, then out towards the group.

Optionally, you can instead channel that energy from the heart chakra, up towards your shoulders, down your arms and out of your hands. Whatever feels comfortable to you. Love is a powerful energy to be tapping into. You could say that this may strengthen the energy coming down and through you or it could be looked at as a different vibration. But when healing, we have to be mindful of not being too strong with the energy we do send, as sometimes the energy needs to be gentle.
