I know some people will think me totally nuts... but anyway, have all my life had a sort of interest in the I suppose you'd call it woo. Not necessarily known what they mean but got the occasional crystal etc.

Had thought I'd stopped all that ages ago apart from 3 years ago a visit to a spiritualist church where strangely my grandad from my dad's side (I barely knew him only as a child up to age 5 apparently came through), no one else!

Anyway about 2 weeks ago I bought a Rose Quartz Butterfly stone (a beauty massage aid but you are also supposed to sleep with it under your pillow). I got it with a GC so not spending really.

Anyway after I'd had it a week I had some VERY strange dreams. And one night I woke suddenly (half awake stage?) staggered round my room lost, half asleep again really scary it was almost spooky, this went on for about 5 minutes. confused

Call me bonkers but apparently Rose Quartz especially under the pillow can do this to you. Have strange dreams.

I also have other crystals (more like flat stones) bought at an African Fair a few years back, ones medium/light blue the other terracotta/brown colour (I think) but nothing I am sure has happened with those.

Another interesting fact, a good friend of mine has practised reiki and saw my aura (blue again).

So do any of you believe in these crystals?! I mentioned it to a friend who totally dismissed it but I am a bit woo!

Thanks!

I had a strange dream last night, too.

I think it was the bowl of cauliflower mash that I ate < burp >

I don't know much about crystals, I tend to buy them because I like them. However, during a Reiki treatment with crystals, I undeniably felt their 'power' or force.

I had an extremely strange dream last night. There is no crystal under my pillow. I checked.

dreams are a product of chemical reactions in the brain. You haven't swallowed the crystal by mistake? smile

special not swallowed it! But I swear (I'm not very woo) these ones DID (not now) give me weird dreams and that strange night thing....

as always we ask for evidence. There has actually been a double-blind study done, with unsurprising results.

and as always, I am open to proof. But not holding my breath.

I qualified as a crystal healer a few years back. I've always found it best not to sleep in close proximity to too many of them. Sleep is its own energy healer and if you start using too much crystal energy you interrupt that. Instead of natural sleep you end up doing energy work, which is fine from time to time and with the right crystal. Amethyst, rose and white quartz are generally OK, though amethyst is the only one I'd recommend to a novice.

Can I ask if you energetically cleaned the crystal before using it? I know I can clean a crystal of negative energy, but I always advise people to do it again. The best way - for quartz and other non-porous crystals - is to put them outside during the next rain storm. Also use sunshine to recharge so a sun/rain interval is ideal. Don't leave Rose Quartz in the sun too long as it can leach the colour.

But yes, intense dreams would be a part of crystal work. Not too sure what the groggy waking would be but I've had some interesting reactions over the years. Keep a notebook by you and write anything you think interesting in it to look back and if if the same crystal type gives a similar reaction each time.

so the qualified advice for cleaning something is to put it out in the rain? Good eco-way of washing your rock there, without wasting tap water. Like it.

more seriously, and with my promise of an open mind - any scientific proof? How do you qualify as a crystal healer? What courses and background knowledge are involved?

yes, I'm very sceptical - but that doesn't mean you can't change my mind with proof.
