I am no “beginner” when it comes to using crystals for healing. I am also one of those wonderful people who believe you can never have too many crystals, nor too many crystal books. Crystals for Beginners is a welcome addition to my collection.
Not a comprehensive guide to crystals and their attributes like the many volumes of The Crystal Bible, Crystals for Beginners is an introduction to using crystals which looks at some of the most commonly used stones you’ll find in people’s collection.
With vivid colors, this book is pleasing to the eyes. From keeping your crystals cleansed and charged to using crystal grids, the basics are covered. There is a section on colors, helping you understand how crystal color works with healing and magic workings.
The ‘Crystal prescriptions’ section is what really makes this book stand out, and is the reason it’s staying in my collection. This section breaks down your issue (stress, abuse, illness) and gives you a mantra, meditation tips, and/or a crystal grid to help you use your healing crystals to their full advantage.
Beginner or not, I highly recommend this book!
I got it for free from the publisher, but this review contains my honest feelings.
