Safe working practices: the four essentials
As the late Alan Watts put it:
Reality is only a Rorschach ink-blot, you know.
All the healing and clearing work in this book is assisted by your own energy and your space being as protected, balanced, grounded and clear as possible. Some of the soul work is challenging and best done with the assistance of a qualified practitioner. But there are times when emergency work is required, and much of the ancestral and karmic healing and clearing can be undertaken with the invaluable assistance of crystals and your own common sense. However, never, ever, attempt this work in a space that is not safe or when your chakras are seriously out of balance, or your auric field compromised. If so, you may be open to psychic invasion or spirit attachment that will exacerbate the situation rather than heal it. Crystals quickly create a protected space around you so keep one or two about your person just in case. Grounding is also essential for clarity and successful completion of the work. Familiarising yourself with basic practices and concepts now will make the healing work much more fruitful and effective.
1. Screen yourself ...
Crystals are excellent for protecting and screening your energy when working. Wearing a Labradorite over your higher heart chakra (above the thymus, centre chest), for instance, screens external energies and creates an interface between the internal and external worlds. This allows you to be intuitively aware of what is going on with the ancestral, soul or karmic line – or yourself – without getting sucked into the issues. Healer's Gold works in the same way to create an interface but can also create a firewall when appropriate. Placing Yellow Labradorite, Lapis Lazuli or Apophyllite on the third eye helps you to be more intuitively aware of subtle energies and to communicate with Spirit and the ancestors. You don't need big shiny crystals for this; small, raw pieces 15 will do. Rhomboid Selenite is the crystal to go to if your third eye has been sealed in the past. It clears prohibitions and restrictions imposed prior to incarnation or in childhood.
If you feel energetically depleted when with a particular person, or have a constant ache under your left armpit, then you need to pay attention to your spleen chakra (see page 37 and Crystal Prescriptions 4 and 5 for indepth information on this chakra). This is where the energy vampires hook in and suck out your energy. Fortunately a Green Aventurine or Flint quickly disconnects these cords, and Green Aventurine, Fluorite or Jade over the spleen chakra protects you from taking on 'stuff' from other people or having them leech your energy. If you then get a pain under the right armpit, this is the result of an energy vampire becoming angry at having its power source cut off. Tape a piece of Gaspeite, Tugtupite or Bloodstone over the site and leave in place for several days until the message is received that you will not be giving away any more of your energy. This works particularly well for energy vampires who are still among the living, or those who are dead but not departed.
2. Keep your space safe
Your space can be protected by creating a grid with Black Tourmaline, Smoky Quartz, Labradorite or Selenite. Three stones arranged in a triangle work well, as do crystals in each corner of the room. If you put a few drops of Petaltone Z14 (see Resources) on the stones, the energies will be cleansed to very high levels and it will transmute everything that is released within the space. The grid then maintains the clean, safe space for several months. This works well for moving on spirits trapped in a particular environment. (See Crystal Prescriptions volume 5 and Good Vibrations: Psychic Protection, Energy Enhancement and Space Clearing for additional assistance.) A few drops of Petaltone Astral Clear on a clear Quartz point is invaluable for moving on spirits that are attached to a place or to an object (see page 212). Ask the crystal to send the spirit to the light, or from whence it came if it belongs in another dimension. Place the crystal in the room or environment and leave it overnight.
3. Keep your crystals clean
Crystals work hard on your behalf, drawing off toxic energy and transmuting detrimental patterns. They absorb karmic dross and ancestral blight, and can act as a repository for soul parts undergoing healing and assist with reintegration. It is a matter of good sense to regularly cleanse and recharge them as otherwise the 17 cycle may repeat itself. (See pages 123-125.)
4. And finally, ground yourself!
In order to be effective when using crystals for healing, and in order to gain maximum benefit from crystal healing, you need to be centred and grounded. Grounding is a term that means you are solidly anchored in the present, with a certain inner stillness, a feeling of being secure, in control of yourself and alert.
Simon Lilly, Crystals and Crystal Healing
Before beginning any work on cleansing karma and the ancestral line, or soul healing, it is essential to ground and stabilise yourself. This can be done through the earthy chakras at your feet, knees and belly with the assistance of Flint, Hematite or other grounding stones. You can then open the higher chakras and safely explore the past. (You will find an illustration of all the chakras on page 25.)
Symptoms of ungroundedness
Check out these symptoms. Tick more than three or four and you definitely need to ground yourself.
Mental confusion/inability to concentrate
Inability to handle the everyday world
Life and home are cluttered

Leaving everything to the last minute, but not living in the moment
Always running late
Dizziness or 'woozy headed'
Clumsiness and dyspraxia – you often bump into things
Appearing to float several inches above the floor
Sugar craving and a desire for junk food
Constantly hungry but food doesn't satisfy
Falling asleep while meditating
Car or electrical equipment breaks down regularly
Irritability without due cause
Insomnia and restless sleep
Unwanted out-of-body experiences
Sense of looking down on yourself from above
Body feels heavy and 'alien'
Emotional and highly over-reactive
Great ideas or plans that never come to fruition
Belching or breaking wind frequently
Anxiety or unease with no apparent cause
Displaying the same symptoms as someone you were just with
Mood changes suddenly when passing a stranger or entering a room

Creating your grounding root
This simple grounding root exercise anchors you to the 19 planet, re-energizes you from the Earth, and allows freedom of movement in order to reach higher or further dimensions of consciousness, to journey inwards or back into the past, and to safely access the Akashic Record. Remember to cleanse and dedicate your crystals before you begin the exercise (see pages 123–125).
Cleanse the aura and chakras with Flint and/or Anandalite (if you don't have Anandalite or the other crystals you can use the cards in The Crystal Wisdom
Healing Oracle pack).
Stand with your feet slightly apart, well balanced on your knees and hips. Feet flat on the floor. Place a Flint, Eye of the Storm (Judy's Jasper), Graphic Smoky Quartz, Hematite, Smoky Quartz, Smoky Elestial Quartz or other grounding stone at your feet.
Picture the earth star chakra about a foot beneath your feet opening like the petals of a water lily.
Place your hands just below your navel (tummy button) with fingertips touching and palms out towards the hips.
Picture roots spreading across your belly, into your hips and then down through your legs and out of your feet to meet in the grounding stone.
The two roots twine together and pass down through the earth star and the Gaia gateway, going deep into the Earth. They pass through the outer mantle, down past the solid crust and deep into the molten magma.
When the entwined roots have passed through the magma, they reach the big iron crystal ball at the centre of the planet.
The roots hook themselves around this ball, holding you firmly in incarnation and helping you to be grounded in incarnation.
Energy and protection can flow up this root to keep you energized and safe.
Allow the roots to pass up from the earth star through your feet, up your legs and the knee chakras and into your hips. At your hips the roots move across to meet in the base chakra and from there to the sacral and the dantien just below your navel. The energy that flows up from the centre of the Earth can be stored in the dantien.
Note: Whenever you are in an area of disturbed earth energy, or a place where you have traumatic previous life or genealogical connections, protect your earth star and Gaia gateway chakras by visualising a large protective crystal all around them. The root will still be able to pass down to the centre of the Earth to bring powerful energy to support you, and the crystal will help to transmute and stabilise the negative energy. A virtual crystal can work equally well when visualised with intent, but placing an actual crystal here intensifies the effect.CHAPTER 2
The chakra system and its place in transgenerational and karmic issues
The chakras are multi-layered, multidimensional vortexes of subtle energy that radiate several feet out all around your physical body. Linkage points between the physical and subtle energy bodies, they are metaphysical energy portals, rather than physical, but they are essential to our efficient functioning in the world and to 22 raising consciousness. Chakras mediate how much you take in from the world around you, and govern your response to that outer world. Loosely speaking, the chakras below the waist are primarily physical, although they can affect the endocrine glands and from that personality. Those in the upper torso are aligned to emotional functioning and engrams that can create psychosomatic conditions, as can those in the head that function on a mental and intuitive basis but which may have physical repercussions. Both the past life chakras (behind the ears) and the causal vortex (above and to the side of the head) hold karmic and ancestral memories. Chakras above and around the head are spiritual connection points and the soma chakra (mid-hairline) and the heart seed chakra (below the breastbone) are both points where the soul and spirit attach.
All the chakras can hold and replay ancestral and karmic themes.
Each of the chakras has specific ancestral or karmic links and carries inter- or cross-generational themes. They also link to particular levels of karma: personal, ancestral, collective and cosmic (see page 164). When blocked (closed) and blown (too open), the chakras replay karmic or ancestral issues and reflect inherited transgenerational themes. In addition to chakra issues acquired in the present life, you may be born with blocked or blown chakras if the predisposition is carried by the matriarchal or your own karmic line. Or, they may be created in utero by your mother's experience and emotions. Issues and transgenerational themes can be resolved by placing appropriate crystals on to the chakra or navel to rebalance it.
What blocks a chakra?
There are many reasons why a chakra may become blocked or blown. Old traumas, toxicity, close-mindedness and fixed beliefs, emotional pain and physical injuries can all contribute as can karmic imprints and engrams. These blockages are not merely personal. They can also be passed along the ancestral line. They 24 become an energetic pattern, or engram, that is imprinted into the relevant chakra and subtle energy bodies at a very deep level. However, one of the major causes of blocked or blown chakras is past life or ancestral issues that have been carried over into the present life or brought in via the DNA, and which are reactivated by present life experiences. The A-Z Directory covers crystals to remedy a wide range of these causes, as well as the addictions and emotional blockages that can result.
These issues are imprinted in the karmic and ancestral subtle energy bodies, in 'junk DNA', and the past life and causal vortex chakras. The layers may need to be peeled back gently over a period of time until the core issue is reached. It can then be released and the energy transmuted. When ancestral clearing or detaching a spirit on behalf of someone other than yourself who is not present, rather than using yourself as a surrogate, which could work well or could leave you vulnerable if you are not fully grounded and protected, you can lay appropriate crystals on the chakra diagram on page 25.CHAPTER 3
Karmic themes in the chakras
Location: About an arm's length beneath your feet, below the earth star.
Karmic level: Ancestral, personal and collective.
A higher resonance of the earth star, this chakra carries the karma of the planet and the wisdom of the ancestors. The karma held here is ancestral and collective. This chakra connects your soul to the soul and spirit of the planet, Gaia, and to Mother Earth herself. When your Gaia gateway is open and functioning at optimum, you are aware of being a particle of a sacred whole, part of the energy system of the Earth and All That Is. When balanced and open, this chakra helps you to protect yourself from spirit attachment and lower energies.
When this chakra is blown it leads to extreme sensitivity to Earth changes. Overwhelming memories of past disasters may be present. Being in incarnation, and especially being in a physical body, is challenging and there is no ability to remain stable during periods of energetic uplift. When this chakra is blocked there is an inability to ground and connect with higher energies.
Karmic and ancestral issues: Accepting or rejecting being an equal part of humanity and at-one-ness with the whole cosmos. Plundering the planet's resources. The karma or ancestral issues are ones of disconnection from the Earth as a sacred, living being, replaying or making restitution for greed and over-utilisation of the planet's resources with disregard for others who share the planet as a karmic or ancestral pattern.
Location: About a foot beneath the feet.
Karmic level: Ancestral, collective and personal. The earth star chakra connects you to the Earth's core as well as its meridians. This chakra is a place of safety and regeneration. Without it, you may have only a toehold in incarnation, and be physically and psychologically ungrounded. When this chakra is functioning well you are grounded and comfortable in incarnation. You operate well in everyday reality and will be open to clearing karma for the ancestors and the collective.
