2 out of 5 stars

This book is not what I was looking for. I wanted a more scientific book about how different minerals and crystals have chemical properties that can change the flow of air, remove impurities, react with other stones to improve energy, or react with electrons in healing ways.
But this book is more spiritual and wishy-washy that I wanted.

The author says in the introduction, “I believe crystals are conscious entities that come from the planet…”
Okay, that just sounds ridiculous. Rocks are not conscious. That is idiotic.
The book starts with some general information about crystal vibrations and how placing them in patterns together will make those vibrations resonate together. There are a lot of details about the types of crystals and patterns to use for different effects.

Then there are grids of suggested patterns and crystals to set up (almost like a recipe) depending on if you want to focus on work, sleep better, relieve allergies, enhance your willpower, relieve depression and anxiety, get creative, or attract wealth with the Law of Attraction.

There is even a buying guide for how to choose crystals to purchase, but it is based on unscientific criteria like holding the crystal in your non-dominant hand and listening to your intuition about the crystal. If you feel it “belongs” with you, then purchase it.

The reader is also given advice on how to “cleanse” the crystals by leaving them in the moonlight or holding them over sage smoke.

I’m so disappointed in this book. I know that there are real scientific studies about the properties of stones and crystals, like salt rock that purifies air by releasing negative ions, but this book is full of nonsense. I’m not a skeptic, I just need some more solid information.

The author has no explanations for WHY these crystal grids would do what they say they ought to do, or WHY crystals should be “cleansed” over sage smoke. I’m not saying I need ten scientific studies to be done, but I would like some kind of reliable information other than your “spirit guide” told you so.
