Crystal Blessings – Revisited
It is always such a joy when I hear how crystals have changed people’s lives. When Joginder, who runs the Tree of Life in Birmingham, was introducing me last year he told the story of how he’d been in despair, feeling very lonely and finding it impossible to meet a partner who was on the...
I’ve been using crystals to facilitate soul healing, spirit release and soul retrieval for over forty five years. Whilst I believe that spirit release is best carried out by trained specialists, there are times when healers, counsellors and other therapists are suddenly confronted with the need to release entities or retrieve soul parts. This is where crystals come in, especially when supported by purpose-made essences. I find these gentle, compassionate tools invaluable for three reasons. The first is that they protect my own energies, creating an interface at which I can work safely so I can give all my attention to the work in hand. The crystal stands at the border between my personal energy field, the other person and the entity, creating a barrier so the entity cannot attach to me after release. Crystals also maintain a sacred and energetically clean space in which to work.
The second reason is that crystals energetically facilitate release and call in higher helpers and divine light to move the spirit on, facilitating the work. Crystals can, when needed, provide a ‘home’ for a spirit or entity until it can be moved on or returned to whence it came. They also act rather like a net to hold anything undesirable rather than setting it free to settle into some other vulnerable soul. But crystals can also be a healer and purifier for a soul part that is returning. The third gift is that they energetically seal the site of an attachment once it has been cleared, purifying and healing the aura, object or environment so that nothing else can attach.
To me, spirit attachment means that a discarnate spirit has entered a living person’s energy field or is influencing it. It can only occur when an energy field is weak and depleted, and when someone does not fully inhabit their body and the soul is not fully present so there is a ‘gap’ or vacuum. It often arises out of momentary loss of energetic boundaries such as in drink or drug taking, or the effects of anaesthetic, shock or trauma. It is common in cases of depression or debilitating illnesses like M.E. But it may also stem back to other lives or deliberate psychic attack. Attachment can be seen in the eyes, which are blank with ‘no one home’ or ‘someone else’ looks out from them. The attaching spirit usually seeks to experience something it was addicted to in life or to control someone. It may be simply lost or be malicious. Attachments are not confined to human beings and may arise from thought forms or alien sources. It’s not always external attachment although it will feel like it is. It may equally well be projection/repressed qualities/obsessive thoughts manifesting apparently externally. Spirit may also be attached to an object rather than a person. It is sensible to bear in mind that not all attaching spirits will have left their physical body. The living can ‘possess’ or overly influence the living. Attachments can arise from the thoughts and feelings of others who try to influence or control or who try to clutch onto your strength – a very common experience for healers, readers and counsellors. It’s as though they have their hooks into you (see below).
People tend to regard spirit release as comparatively new but the earliest spirit releases I have researched occur in Egypt and Mesopotamia where troublesome spirits were believed to interfere in people’s lives, causing havoc. Crystals were part of the tool box for dealing with them. People commonly wrote letters to a deceased person asking them to desist and wore crystal amulets to support that call and to protect themselves. A Mesopotamian banishing ritual at least five thousand years old uses Selenite. Once the spirit causing the misfortune has been expelled and returned to the otherworld, something has to be put in its place. Selenite held ‘the divine light of the gods’ and filled the vacuum so that nothing else could attach.
In Mesopotamia, each crystal had its own god who could inhabit and become the crystal in a way that we don’t fully grasp today because we have lost our understanding of ‘correspondence’ (roughly translated ‘as above, so below’). So, for instance, Lapis Lazuli was Venus, Carnelian Ninlil (a goddess of destiny) and so on. In those days illness was believed to be caused by attacking entities and there is a fascinating contemporary account of a priest healing a sick man. The ritual, which uses both crystal and sound therapy, constructs a net in which to ‘catch’ the invading spirit with the assistance of gods who become embodied in the magical tools:
‘The gypsum [Selenite] and bitumen which they smear on the door of the sick man. The gypsum is Ninurta [Saturn, one of the ‘good guys’ in Mesopotamian mythology]. The bitumen is Asakku [a demon god]. Ninurta pursues Asakku [i.e. good chases out the evil spirit].
The circle of flour which surrounds the bed of the sick man [is] Lugulgirra and Meslamtaea [other gods]
The three heaps of flour which they cast down [are] Anu, Enil and Ea
The design which they draw in front of the bed. That is a net any traps Any Evil.
The drum and cymbals which are resplendent at the head of the sick man. The drum is Anu. The cymbals are Enlil.
The standards which are set up at the head of the sick man. They are Sibitti, the great gods, sons of Ishara.
The scapegoat which is placed at the head of the sick man: Ninamaskuga, Enlil’s shepherd.
The censor and torch placed in the house of the sick man: The censor is Kusu. The torch is Nusku.’
Livingstone, Alasdair Mystical and Mythological Explanatory works of Assyrian and Babylonia Scholars Clarendon press, Oxford 1986 p.173ff
Unfortunately the tablet breaks off there so we don’t have a complete description of the ritual but we do know that it describes a battle between ‘good’ and ‘evil’ gods for the soul of the sick man. It is presumed that the invading spirit is then sent into the ‘scapegoat’ waiting at the head of the sick man but in other descriptions it is captured in ‘a stone’.
Part of Mesopotamian and Egyptian ‘closing rituals’ after detaching entities was to make a necklace out of Carnelian, Lazulite or Lapis Lazuli, Serpentine, ‘spotted stone’, ‘very spotted stone’, shiny silex (Flint), breccia and ‘little breccia’ (Jasper) beads. This was worn around the neck for seven days. Only some of these crystals can be accurately identified, but those that do still work today.
 This notion is covered in detail in one of my academic essays which is to be found on the Astrozero website and in my MA dissertation which is on www.judyhall.co.uk.
Appropriate, cleansed (see below) crystals can either be put directly onto the body, spiralled over the chakras or placed in a grid around the room, in the environment or around the physical body. They work well in the aura about a foot out from the physical body as that is where many of the more subtle attachments occur. Sweeping the whole aura with an appropriate crystal such as Anandalite often clears minor attachments without needing to know the full story and will send a spirit to the light, dissolve a thought form or detach undue influence. A crystal with a point will pull out energies when pointed away from the body, and draw in light when pointed towards it.
Crystals work best when they have been dedicated to their task and when their energies have been cleansed. They quickly pick up negative vibes and need to be cleansed before and after spirit release work or healing. I always ask that a crystal will work for the highest good of all and that a spirit or an entity will be returned to its rightful and appropriate place in whatever dimension or timeframe that may be. Purpose made crystal cleansers are extremely useful as they cleanse immediately so the crystal can be reused again and again. Petaltone Clear2Light or Crystal Balance Crystal Cleanse are invaluable as a few drops instantly cleanses a crystal and Crystal Recharge rapidly re-energises it. Petaltone Zl4 clears to fourteen etheric levels. Petaltone also make an excellent entity clearing essence, email them for details [email protected]
Crystals are excellent for protecting your energy when working. I always wear a Labradorite over my higher heart chakra (above the thymus) to screen energies. It allows me to be psychically aware of what is going on with a client but not to get sucked into the energy. Healer’s Gold works in the same way to create an interface at which I can work. Yellow Labradorite or Apophyllite helps you to be more psychically aware of subtle energies and to communicate with spirit. You don’t need big shiny crystals for this, raw chunks will do.
My favourite soul retrieval crystal tools:
Brandenberg: The one crystal I wouldn’t be without! Each crystal holds the essence of Clear, Smoky and Amethyst whether or not you can see the individual colours in the crystal, which usually has phantoms and bubbles that act like a ladder to higher consciousness. This the perfect tool for spirit release and soul retrieval. It also takes you back to the pure soul blueprint that existed before karmic encrustrations or family crud began to adhere. It heals the ancestral line, the personal or collective karmic lines, rejigs the etheric blueprint and restores the soul to perfection.
Smoky or Amethyst Spirit Quartz: Tiny drusy crystals cover a stone core in this amazing formation. I find it invaluable for helping transition to the next world whether of someone passing now or a spirit who has become stuck in the earthplane and needs to move on. This compassionate stone helps with soul retrieval, forgiveness and attaining unity consciousness.
Trigonic Quartz: The incised triangles in the stone represent souls entering or leaving incarnation. This is a powerful crystal best used by experienced crystal workers as it can have cathartic effects (see 101 Power Crystals and Crystal Bible Vol.3). It helps you to traverse the multi-dimensions of consciousness and facilitates inter-stellar travel and communication with star beings.
Stibnite: This metallic stone has a particular resonance with ‘alien’ entities and energies and can be used to return an entity that doesn’t belong on Earth to its home star. It creates a ‘one-way portal’ through which the entity leaves and cannot return (see below) It also facilitates shamanic journeying to the lower worlds to facilitate soul retrieval and to help a practitioner move silently and with stealth when remaining unseen is the wise course.
Smoky Elestial Quartz power sceptres: These sceptre shaped crystals are invaluable when a spirit does not want to leave. They enhance your power and your sensitivity so that you know exactly how to move a spirit or entity on to the right level to receive assistance from higher beings.
Selenite: frozen divine light, high vibration Selenite is the perfect receptacle for a spirit who needs somewhere to go while you continue release work. It assists with forgiveness and brings a soul to the light calling in higher beings and angelic helpers.
Crystals and soul loss
In my experience, an attachment can only arise when there is soul loss or fragmentation and it can be necessary to call a soul part home. Crystals help to purify the soul part and to reintegrate it. Calling the soul home, whether it’s a split off child part, an earlier past life part that hasn’t incarnated or the result of trauma or abuse in the present life, is facilitated with either a Brandenberg or Spirit Quartz but Fulgarite was traditionally used by American shamans to collect the soul part and blow it back into the heart.
As the attaching spirit is, usually, an uninvited guest or the influence unsought, I believe this is one occasion when it is not necessary to request the other person’s permission to assist them as the spirit is breaching their autonomy and right to choice. If the person is not present you can either use or a photograph or imagine them in the room with you, or use yourself as a surrogate by performing the healing on your own body.
[Extracted from Good Vibrations]
Some lost souls may be deeply troubled and their interaction with the living can be malicious. They may have unfinished business, or powerful desires especially for control over another person or to re-experience substance abuse, or simply do not know how to move on or to let go. Sometimes they do not even know that they are dead – after all, they feel very much alive! They may wonder why everyone around them appears to ignore them – and do all they can to gain attention. Other souls are simply clinging to what they know. This is work for an experienced therapist.
Dealing with thought forms
To remove an external thought form, programme a large piece of one of the crystals below and leave in a room to do its work. Internal thought forms can be quickly dissolved with a crystal placed over the third eye as they tend to be stored in the brow chakra or just behind the ears. Use a Selenite Wand to detach them or place one of the following crystals over the chakra for ten minutes. Banded Agate is excellent where the thought form has been implanted by a guru or is the result of a distorted, contaminated implant of ‘healing’ symbols – follow up with a Brandenberg Amethyst to replace it with a pure program. Aegerine over the third eye is excellent for mental obsession or possession where you can’t get someone out of your mind
The Uncursing Ritual
Many soul parts get stuck in previous lives because they have, deliberately or inadvertently, been cursed. This ritual is excellent for removing past life curses that hold a soul part in thrall but it also clears ancestral attachments, thought forms and entities. You can do it for yourself or on another person. (Petaltone Essences make a crystal essence that can facilitate this process.)
Tourmaline in Quartz, Nuummite and Novaculite: the perfect de-cursing kit
The crystal portal
Place a Stibnite crystal crossways over a long-pointed Chlorite Quartz and top with a Selenite wand. This one-way portal soaks up any negativity, releases the soul or entity and sends it out of the Earth-plane and into light where it can be handled by wise mentors and soul-rescuers.
