So you get this new crystal and you’re excited to start working with it:
You wear it or meditate with it, but instead of feeling good from it, you feel off, or negative, or sick.
You have bad dreams, or get angry when you hold it, or some terrible memory surfaces.
Maybe you can’t sleep at all when it’s around. Or you get a bad headache. Or feel even more anxious, stressed, or depressed than before.
What gives? You thought crystals were supposed to help you feel better, not worse!
Having a bad reaction to a crystal is actually not so uncommon – it’s something I’m asked about on a weekly basis.
“What does it mean?” And, “what do I do with the crystal?”
I will always remember my first adverse reaction to a crystal: malachite. It was placed on my heart chakra in a healing session for 45 minutes, and for the next 3 days I was a complete and total hot mess. Despondent, depressed, crying, couldn’t leave my apartment. It was awful.
I asked the healer about it, and she replied: “Oh, well malachite draws repressed emotions to the surface, so that’s probably why.”
“You should have told me that first before placing it on me!” I cried. And then cried…
This is why I always caution my Pro Crystal Healer students that a) you can have a bad reaction to crystals, and b) you have to advise your clients, first, before using powerful crystals like malachite, moldavite, covellite, and other deep transformational stones in a healing session, and allow them the right to refuse if they don’t feel ready to handle the possible response.
And here’s another thing that I consistently caution to everyone working with healing stones: crystals can do harm.
Just because they’re natural does not automatically mean they’re good for you – think snake venom, poisonous berries, and toxic minerals. They’re all natural, too, but definitely not good for you.
Crystals can create imbalance just as easily as they can restore balance.
That being said, just because you’ve had an adverse reaction to a crystal does not necessarily mean that it’s doing you harm – sometimes the act of restoring balance only feels like it’s bad when it’s actually a good thing.
