So today I'll be talking about my journey towards becoming a crystal healer. I get asked so often how I did it, so I thought it would be really helpful to dedicate an entire podcast episode to my story. My hope for you is that if you listen to the story and feel like you're on a similar path in your life right now, or you'd like to be, that you realize that it is possible and that you can make it happen. So I guess we'll go back to the beginning If you've listened to interviews with me before at all, you know that I really got started with crystals because of my grandparents.
My grandfather was really into crystals and minerals and anything in the natural world. He was a scientist.

He loved learning about animals and plants and minerals and he shared that love and passion with me from a young age. I have him to thank for my interest and curiosity about crystals. However, he wasn't so much looking at them from an esoteric perspective. He wasn't looking at healing qualities or the metaphysics of minerals at all.
Despite this, he did instil that deep love and appreciation within me. I think my own curiosity for all things metaphysical influenced the way that I approached my relationship with crystals. Like a lot of people, I started out on my journey with a lot of self study. This was even going back to my teenage years. I would read so many books about the metaphysical properties of crystals.
I actually found it at a library sale for 25 cents or 50 cents and I couldn't believe it. I was so excited and I bought it for myself. Straight away I read it cover to cover which, if you've read Melody's book, you'd know is no small feat. It's pretty intense. She has so much wisdom and knowledge to share. That was a big eye-opener for me about just how deep you could go in the world of crystals. There are minerals in that book that to this day I've probably still never seen in person. There are minerals that I had never even heard of the first time I went through and read that book.
But it was so exciting at that time because it was a whole new world for me, and that instilled this deeper curiosity. I just wanted to know more and more. I'm one of those people whose thirst for knowledge is never really quenched. I am always wanting to learn something new. So although that was my first deep foray into this kind of self study in the realm of crystals, I started to buy books by lots of other people - authors that I have a great deal of respect and admiration for, such as Judy Hall, Naisha Asiyan, and Katrina Rafael.
I started to learn a lot about the different perspectives and viewpoints that exist in the crystal healing world and just how many possibilities there were out there for how to work with stones. At the same time, I also felt a little confused and overwhelmed. As much as there were things that many people agreed upon,. But rather than simply wearing intuition stones as jewelry or carrying them with you for an intuitive boost, you can take things a step further by creating a powerful crystal grid!
This crystal grid for intuition opens your Third Eye center and encourages communication with your spirit guides and angels. When creating a crystal grid, you should always start by setting an intention.
In this case, it should be something geared toward enhancing your intuitive gifts. Start by placing an Azurite crystal corresponding to intuition and psychic skills in the center of the grid. The Azurite creates the pupil of the eye.
As you place each stone in the grid, state your intention statement aloud or silently to yourself. This is done using 8 Sodalite stones corresponding to spirit guide connection. Again, state your intention statement aloud or silently to yourself as you place each stone in the grid. Place 1 crystal point on each side of the Azurite stone pointing outward to the corners of the eye.
This helps the Azurite energy expand outward, strengthening the connection between you and your spirit guides. To activate your grid, use a Clear Quartz or Selenite wand to draw 3 clockwise circles around the grid. Alternatively, you can trace the shape of the eye to activate the energy of the grid. You can leave this grid in place for a short time up to several months. Just be sure to check in with the energy of the grid at least weekly to hold space and invite the intuitive guidance into your life. This grid recipe is adapted from the one featured in my book, Crystals for Energy Healing.

About This Item
Lauren and I met to have a lengthy discussion about the healing crystals in the books and films, the best crystals for each Hogwarts house, and a few extra crystals to help tap into the energy of the non-muggle universe. For the non-believers, they never got much past the stage of seeing white swirls or fog. Diamonds were also seen in the tiara worn by Fleur Delacour during her wedding to Bill Weasley. It was a goblin-made item that glittered and twinkled in the light.
I release all emotions and negative cycles that no longer serve me. One Way to Use Aqua Calcite: To calm yourself and stabilize your emotions when you're feeling stressed or overwhelmed, gently drop a piece of Aqua Calcite into a bowl of water. Focus on the gentle ripples on the water's surface and watch them grow slower and slower until the water once again becomes still. Remove the stone from the water and hold it over your heart, visualizing your emotions slowing and slowing until they too are still and calm.

How you got started working together and the beautiful things that you've dreamed up together and created? Arizona: All right, Morgan's pointing to me. This is Arizona Bell so I will take it away. Wow, so Morgan and I have known each other since like middle school.
We were in the same grade though and we graduated high school and went our separate ways. We weren't close in middle school but we knew each other then. I was actually friends of her sister. Fast forward, many years after high school and our late 20's and we noticed each other from social media doing very similar things and into all of the spiritual things and traveling and a free spirit lifestyle.
So we reconnected together that way. And how we came to do Spirit Guide's Magazine and everything that has followed since was basically, I had the idea just the name popped in my head, Spirit Guide's Magazine, new maps for old souls. As we just talked about briefly before we got on, I have a lot of ideas, like that's what happens in my brain. So I didn't think anything of it but some ideas aren't meant for us and some are and that one just wouldn't go away.
So for literally 5 years before Morgan and I and got together and did this project, it was just in my brain floating around. Spirit Guide's magazine, new maps for old souls. Then my mom passed away four years ago and I was like, "Life's too short, I'm gonna do what I wanna do. I'm done working for corporations I don't care about and making the big bucks. So I called up Morgan and I was like, "There's nobody I would rather do this project with and it's an idea that wouldn't go away, do you want it?
We launched this digital magazine for spirituality and from there, it's just all been a wild ride, right Morgan?. Morgan: And the rest is history and as many things that are born, this was kind of born in the depths of a little bit of shadows situation for both of us. I had just left a relationship. Arizona was kind of flexing between where she wanted to be and so we really just dove all into Spirit Guides and gave it, gave everything we had.
Then life goes in different directions after that. Arizona is in Spain now and I'm in Denver but we're still doing the damn thing. Isn't it amazing how sometimes out of those big, deep, crazy life situations, they really turned into a catalyst for us to grow and create, and heard something new and reinvent things and pull on old ideas.

I love. Arizona, that this was something for you that was floating around there for so long. I think what you said is something that I want everyone to pay really close attention to. It's an idea that wouldn't go away like all had those things in our lives. I feel that's one of those things when you have that kind of persistent presence of one of those ideas or draws or something that you're feeling really called to.
That's one of those things you almost know as part of your soul path. You absolutely would write that sometimes life is too short to ignore those things that we're truly called to do and to keep going about our daily grind when i Hey, crystal lovers and welcome! I'm thrilled to be connecting with one of my favorite multi-passionate creatives.
