Hello friends. Have you noticed that you can get caught up in consuming content or maybe you noticed you are hyper, hyper-focused on the doing? Empaths we often consume. And I know because that was me too; soaking up information from all my favorite teachers and mentors. But it wasn’t until I started focusing more on the being and embodiment work that the door to massive clarity was finally unlocked and I no longer got confused about what was my energy versus everybody else’s. I was able to become a more clear channel for creation and as a result, transform my life, business, and health. In fact, my meditation and embodiment practice is what helped me have a nearly $40,000 month this past January, see the highest downloaded month of the podcast, and finally release a lot of unnecessary stress.

Welcome back to another episode. This is part of a six-part series on the Inner Healer Archetypes. If you haven’t started with episode 178 on the Three-Eyed Raven, I recommend you go and listen to the introduction to that episode just to get on the same page and then of course come and circle back to this episode. With that, let’s dive in as we start to peel back the layers of more of these Inner Healer Archetypes.
Welcome to Part Two – Archetype Two, that we’re going to be discussing on this mini-series of the Inner Healer Archetypes. And today’s archetype that we’re going to be dissecting and diving into is the Crystal Healer. So I want you to close your eyes if it’s safe for you and I want you to see what images come to mind when you think of the Crystal Healer. Who is she? What does she look like? Is she holding crystals? Maybe she’s made of crystals. But what do you intuitively sense when you think of the Crystal Healer? Again, there’s no right or wrong. And what characteristics or traits does she have? How does this feel for you? And then declare within yourself, I am the Crystal Healer. As the Crystal Healer, how would you act? How would you show up? What self-healing would you be drawn to? How would you show up as healer? How would you be that inner healer? What traits come to mind? What strengths come to mind? What do you see her doing? Is she using her hands? Maybe she’s just using her energy. So whatever answers started to surface for you, again, those are all correct. And we can all intuit what this means within us because we have this Crystal Healer within us. So let’s talk a little bit more about what that means.
The traits of the Crystal Healer include loving tools and props. Now the tools that will work for each of you listening will look very different because we all have unique needs. There’s this thing called bio-individuality and really, that’s just a fancy way of saying that you and I are different, that you and Sally down the street are different. We all have very unique makeups, both our genetics, but also our epigenetics, and the way that environment influences our genes. And so, our tools are going to need to be different. So every Crystal Healer within each and every one of you, that toolbox that she has is going to look different. When I see the Crystal Healer, I think of her actually holding a toolbox in one of her hands or maybe even both of her hands if she has a lot of tools, but what’s inside is going to be unique to you. And some of you might not actually even have crystals in your toolbox at all and that is okay too. The name of this archetype really just embodies everything that I’m going to be discussing. It’s not directly related to crystals specifically, however, if you know me, you know I love the crystals.
So some examples of tools that might be in that healing toolbox are essential oils. Again, this is mostly what my toolbox looks like; all of the essential oils so these come from the earth. I think of the Crystal Healer and I think of a woman who really is tapped into different gifts, medicine from the earth, but that’s not always the case. So the first few examples that I’m going to give are mostly from the earth, but again, it can be expanded. So essential oils come from the earth, come from mother nature; Sage or Palo Santo. And Sage, a dried Sage bundle, you can burn. And I find that when you burn Sage, it’s very cleansing whereas Palo Santo is going to be, if you burn that, a little more like clearing and purifying. I use both of them almost every single day but people ask me that all the time; what’s the difference between burning Sage and burning Palo Santo? They’re both from the earth, they’re both beautiful tools. I think the aroma is different, but also there’s a slightly different energy when you breathe in that aroma or use them in your different rituals if you do.
Other tools in your toolbox; you might have some totems, different figurines, or just objects that represent something to you that maybe are special to you in some way, Oracle cards, another tool that’s definitely in my toolbox that I still use quite a bit. Funny thing is though, that I became a certified Oracle card or Taro card both reader and I used them so much in the beginning of my own healing and also with my clients. And now I find that they were a really beautiful gateway into just listening to my own intuition and that my intuition sometimes gets upgraded when I use the cards, but I don’t need the cards anymore. And that’s really the case with all these tools. It’s like they’re just beautiful additions. We don’t have to be dependent upon any of them. So the Oracle cards, I love to use and add in my toolbox as a way to draw a card and get guidance. Books, maybe books that you love, a little mini library inside of your toolbox. I just got five new books today actually and there’s some of these books that I’m just so excited to dive into. Now I’ve got to find the time.
So other tools that might be in your toolbox might actually be crystals in the Crystal Healer toolbox. So whether that is a crystal to ground your energy, a crystal to protect your energy, a crystal to open up your intuition, a crystal to help heal relationships, a crystal to help protect yourself from the negative effects of EMF or electromagnetic frequency and radiation, they can be used in so many ways. I’ve got a whole course on this if anyone wants to learn more about crystals. That’s available any time. You might literally have that extra little Zippy bag, that little tote bag in your purse, or you might just be someone who carries a larger purse around because you have to bring all your things; all of your things for healing. So I’m that person. I have an inner Crystal Healer inside of me. This is not my strongest archetype but I certainly embody this one to some degree. And so, especially when I travel, but just on a day-to-day basis too, I carry a lot of things with me. When I travel, I usually have these little incense matchsticks and my little tote bag within my purse has my essential oils; it has an extra pair of contacts, it has my crystals for EMF protection, it has my miHealth device that we’re using in that healing activation portal and it has all my little things.
Sometimes it has little zinc and elderberry throat drops. I just got my tools. I got my activated charcoal all the time. I got my digestive enzymes. I got all my things that I might need. That might resonate with you but maybe you haven’t been on a holistic healing path or just a spiritual growth path for quite as long so your tools might also currently look more like, okay, I’ve got my ibuprofen and I’ve got my chapstick and I have my stress ball and I have my fidget spinner. So this is going to be different, again, for everybody. I usually have my blue-blocking glasses with me as well these days. So that’s going to be completely individual to you but I want to know if you’re listening to this and the Crystal Healer is your strongest archetype that you got as a result on the quiz, are you someone who has a big purse, or are you someone who brings that little kind of a survival kit almost pack with you so that you always have the tools that you might need? You don’t want to get stuck anywhere without your activated charcoal or something along those lines.
So as the Crystal Healer, you probably also have an altar or a sacred space and you might not call it that and that’s okay. So what does that mean? What does altar, sacred space translate into? Well, that could just be a corner of your room. It could be a surface of a table. It could be an entire room that has the things that surround you that make you feel good. So it’s like you are surrounding yourself by these objects, these tools, or just the energy of a space, the color of your walls, the texture of the blanket or the pillow or the carpet that you have in that room that allow you to sink into yourself. So it’s just a place where you walk in and it’s like the energy feels good here; good vibes. My altar is on a fairly low-to-the-ground table in the corner of my office and it has a crystal grid and I will change that crystal grid over time, depending on what it is that I’m focused on and growing and working on in my life. It also has a check that I wrote to myself. So it has my income goal for the month written out to Sarah Small as a way to manifest that income goal. It has four different laminated pictures. There’s some pictures of a spiritual scenery of spirit guides and then I also have two new ones that I’ve added that are by this Australian artist and there’s a hand holding this Sage bundle; just images that I think that are really beautiful and they feel connected for me.
And then I usually bring an oil into the space. So my oils live at a different place where I can color code them and alphabetize them, and have the ones that I haven’t opened and have the ones that I have opened. So they live in a different space, but I bring them onto my altar and I pick that oil-of-the-day that I’m going to use to start to heal any limiting beliefs or emotional blockages. And I personally use the book emotions and essential oils as a resource guide almost every single day where I’m tapping in and now I have many of them memorized. And I also write myself little notes, whether that’s an affirmation or it’s a quote that I’ve been really resonating with. And so, it’s just this little space, literally for me, it’s just a little tiny tabletop in the corner of my room, but it’s like an offering. It can be a little sanctuary. It’s a place to manifest, it’s a place to meditate, it’s a place to tap into your higher self and really just to feel good. There are no rules around this, you can create this in any way that you want. And your sacred space, I see these as slightly different, but sacred space can just be your meditation cushion. It can be a comfy chair in your house, it can be your bed. It’s that area and that space where you can just be you and you can feel safe and you can tap in so there’s not so much distraction.
I wrote in the past week on social media how I reorganized my closet because when I opened my closet, I felt the energy of clutter and chaos. There are before and after pictures on my Instagram, if you want to go see them. It only took me an hour and I went through and I just organized. And oh yes, now the energy of all that clutter is no longer there. It’s all organized. It’s tucked away in a very organized fashion, a structured fashion, because otherwise, my space doesn’t feel sacred. It doesn’t feel like I can clear my thoughts, it doesn’t feel like I can just be still and tap in. It doesn’t even feel safe sometimes because it’s just like, oh, there’s so much energy around me. And all of you listening who can resonate with that empath energy, you know what I’m talking about. Whether it’s your home or maybe you walk into somebody else’s home or a store or wherever there’s clutter everywhere and you feel all the energy of that. So the sacred space is one where you can just be clear.
And we’ve talked about the Shadow Archetypes so if anyone’s feeling like, well, I don’t really have any of these tools and this is not me then maybe this is your Shadow Archetype because maybe you don’t have a sacred space yet. Maybe you don’t have an altar or again, whatever you want to call it, maybe you don’t carry any tools with you. And it’s not required that you do. By no means is that required that you have to carry a big purse around with you like Mary Poppins, right? But it is something for you to consider like, well, what if I did create a space in my home? I have a client who it’s really hard for her to find this true quiet in her house because she has children so she goes out into her car and she meditates. And while I wish she had a place in her home that she could find a peace and quiet and be able to create her sacred space, I also understand. And so, if your car is your sacred space, okay, bring your doTERRA Car Diffuser out there or let yourself hang a Charcoal Lava Rock Diffuser from the rear-view mirror, bring in your oils, turn on the music that makes you feel happy, apply the oils to you; whatever’s going to make that then amplify so that it feels like you can really tap in. So maybe you don’t have anything like that in your life right now and so again, that might be because this is your Shadow Archetype, and just challenge yourself to think about how could I embody this Inner Healer Archetype within me, within you, to more of a degree?
The Crystal Healer is also highly sensitive to their environment at any given time. So that means that you might have chemical sensitivities. For me, it is getting in Ubers and the fricking Uber drivers who have all of these toxic synthetic aromatherapies in their car whether that’s one of those little squares that puts off aromas or Febreze or one of the things they stick into their little air conditioning vents or even the air fresheners you hang that you get from the carwash. Those give me an immediate headache because I’m highly sensitive to chemicals and the aroma of chemicals. That also applies to cleaning products. I mean most cleaning products you can get at the grocery store are toxic…toxic. These things have so many ingredients in them they can label as perfume or fragrance and that they don’t have to actually label or divulge that information of what’s inside that. So something might be lemon-flavored or cherry-flavored and it’s just like, oh, that’s what they label it as, fragrance. It can have fricking formaldehyde in it, it could have arsenic in it and the FDA does not require that they disclose that.
And I mean, it isn’t going on a tangent about essential oils, essentially, because that is why I use my oils because they are pure, potent, inexpensive, and amazing replacements to the chemicals that I’m highly sensitive to. So I want to hear from you guys, are you highly sensitive to chemicals as well? Are you highly sensitive to the environment that you’re in whether that’s your Uber driver? I went to Costco the other day and I was walking down because we get the earth-friendly, recycled toilet paper from Costco, and it’s over by all of the cleaning products. And I covered my face with my sweatshirt the whole time I walked down the aisle because of all the laundry detergent and all the cleaning products that are inside their container but you can still smell so potently. And I think that’s even an indication of, whoa, all right, this is too intense so I know I get affected by that. This doesn’t have to just be smells though. It could be crowded spaces, it could be toxic people, it could be the energy of the people around you that you’re just picking up on so strong because you are that empath and you’re feeling okay, these people are all pissed off or these people are all super excited or these people are all on drugs.
I mean, if you go to a concert, it’s like, whoa, the energy of everyone is crazy because they’re all out of their bodies, having this out-of-body experience and you might be really sensitive to that. That could be cigarette smoke, it could be pollution. You feel it all, right? So highly sensitive to the environment because you’re just feeling all of it, whether that is visual, auditory, olfactory, or just energetic. The Crystal Healer also loves nature and feels really connected to Mother Earth. And so, this is similar to the Three-Eyed Raven and how the Three-Eyed Raven was connected to the cycles of the earth as we discussed, but the Crystal Healer is more connected to the elements of the earth. So I’m just going to go through some of the elements of earth, earth energy, the earth being one of them, and this is based on elemental medicine. And elemental medicine is something I studied in my bioenergetic practitioner training that we were able to really get a lot of insight on ourselves on so there’s a lot more to this. I’ve hosted an elemental medicine training in the past where we use your birthday and everything to figure out what your sign is and figure out what elemental energy you were born into and then what you might be deficient in. But in the context of today, it’s really like Crystal Healer is connected to these elements. She feels them.
So the first is just earth energy. And that’s the energy that gives us stability. It’s the ability to provide for our physical needs. It is energy of being practical and being able to be down-to-earth and so it’s this grounding energy. It is also associated with different physical aspects of our body. So earth energy is if you’re heavy in earth energy it’s that you hold weight around your middle, your waistline. You might be constipated, have digestive issues, feel stagnant. Your muscles might be painful; you might have fibromyalgia. You might feel like you’re a really sweet person but also sugar is kind of like poison for you, whether you realize that or not yet, and your body needs to move. So earth energy is this keep-it-real energy. It’s down-to-earth, it’s grounded, it’s this solid foundation, but it also needs movement.
Metal energy is organized. It’s self-disciplined, it’s conscientious, it is structured, and it has this deep inner strength like these crystals actually; crystals that come from within the earth or within mines that are cultivated and harvested. And so, if your metal energy is imbalanced, you might be in this deep state of sadness or grief or over-critical or unable to let things go. And again, on a physical level, it can show up as issues in your skin, rashes, eczema, respiratory as well, like asthma, allergies, frequent colds, and your large intestine meridian can be affected too for issues like constipation, diarrhea. So the metal energy because it’s so well organized and self-disciplined, it’s the perfectionist. And you might not be giving yourself enough space to breathe so your skin pays the price when you’re not breathing correctly and we need to just bring the issues to the surface that you can see them and move through them.
So the Crystal Healer, just to recap for a second here between earth energy and metal energy, she’s tapped into all of these. So really it’s just a matter of noticing, okay, am I grounded? Am I in earth energy or am I really self-disciplined right now? Am I in this metal energy? And working with these different energies in order to be able to heal herself and share her healing powers with the world. So you could actually, if you’re someone who’s interested in tapping into this deeper, be someone who then studies the elements and uses those to your advantage. And these also show up a lot in astrology, in the way that our Zodiac signs are, but also in Ayurvedic medicine as well, and the doshas and the other different energies of the doshas as well.
Okay, fire energy is the next one. Fire energy is going to be this energetic, passionate, dynamic, sexy, charisma-type person, but because they’re so fiery, they can also get pissed off and frustrated and they can be really competitive. So yes, ambitious, motivated, creative. They also have drive and determination but you just want to be able to pace yourself so you don’t burn out before you hit your finish line, your goal. Fire energy is one that needs to be nurtured and managed carefully so that you don’t have these explosive reactions and instead, use all this energy and passion towards this creative action-taking. Fire energy also sometimes has hidden sadness and so this hidden sadness, it’s like it’s beyond that. That flame’s so bright and our light is so fiery that sometimes we don’t even see or other people definitely don’t see that underneath that there might be this level of sadness. And it’s a masculine energy and it’s one that the biggest challenge is just to remain calm and peaceful and allow yourself to ask for help and not feel like you have to do it all on your own. So you’re allowed to work with a coach, you’re allowed to ask for help whether that’s a friend, that’s a family, that’s a coach, that’s a therapist, that’s a teacher, whoever it is.
This person is so driven but that sadness, we can’t always cover it up, we can’t hide it or else we won’t move through it, we might not process it. So the Crystal Healer needs to notice when is she being this uber-energetic and passionate person, but maybe also covering up some of the sadness and not wanting to be in that energy. The next energy of the elements is wood. And when we’re born, we start in wood energy, and this is clear vision, clear goals and just knowing how to bring those clear vision and goals into reality; planning, decision-making, having strong opinions. And when wood energy is off, that can be the opposite. It can be indecisive without having a strong direction in life, feeling stuck, feeling lost, feeling stagnant, feeling like you’ve hit a healing plateau. And you may feel like you have to constrain your emotions like in fire where you’re hiding them, but the wood energy constrains them and they’re just less able to express this anger. Not that they aren’t capable of it or we. We are all capable of it but it might feel very constrained like for some reason there’s a lock on it and it just can’t come out.
The wood energy also has a tendency to be a workaholic and that can also turn into digestive issues where your body’s in this constant state of work, work, work; work, work, work, work, work, work. And so, it doesn’t have time to do digestion, to rest and digest and be in this other state of your nervous system where things are being repaired and maintenance is being provided. So you might suffer from things like bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea. And in order to help rebalance wood energy, exercise, moving your body, stepping away from work, just allowing yourself to sit and read a book for pleasure, my friends. How often do we just read for pleasure? And some of the physical things beyond the digestion that can show up here are also results of stress but just dry, brittle nails, hair, and you might experience migraines, eye pain, sinus issues. So this is going to be that imbalanced wood energy that is feeling lost, that is feeling so stressed and overwhelmed that that clear path that we were born with, that wood energy we start with in our life of clear clarity is now feeling more stuck and stagnant.
Yes, and one of the ways to actually move through and balance wood energy is also just tapping into to your pleasure center, that sacral chakra, that sexual energy, and just allowing yourself to stop the stress and work and move into this place of pleasure. And the last element is water; water energy. And water is our unconscious. It’s our dreams, it’s our vision, it’s our psychic ability. It’s one of my favorites, which is probably no surprise to you. And this is our sensitivity, our sympathy, our compassion, being a good listener, being a team player. And if it’s imbalanced, it can be dramatic, it can be obsessive, it can have really heavy emotions, and can sometimes play off or avoid our sensitive nature by actually responding in a way of sarcasm. So if you find yourself being overly sarcastic or knowing someone who’s overly sarcastic, sometimes it’s just a defense mechanism to really cover up our sensitivity and how sensitive and compassionate and warm, gentle-hearted we really are underneath that.
So the water is intuitive, emotional, ultra-sensitive, and these body types also don’t like to be cold or might get cold really easily and just want to be warm and love to learn. So they might know a lot about many things and be full of certifications. And the imbalanced water energy is really just using willpower if they are afraid of that feeling of fear. So in order to avoid fear, they push through; push, push, push. I’m going to use my warrior, I’m going to use my willpower to get through this, instead of just feeling the fear and talking to it. There’s a lot of emotions that come up here, a lot of intuition, and it is important to feed that scholar within you, that part of you that wants to learn and grow and feel without having to put up a defense mechanism of sarcasm or pushing through. So again, Crystal Healer is able to tap into each of these elemental energies and then the energies of the earth, for example. So using tools from the earth like trees, leaves, roots, dirt. Metal; so using the energy of specific metals that we create. And fire; using the energy of fire, whether that’s in your fireplace or you’re burning your Sage or Palo Santo. Wood, similar to Palo Santo or that tree energy where you’re tapping into that in more of a literal sense. And then water; so salt baths and swimming in the ocean and allowing yourself or swimming in a river or a lake or a stream, or just taking a shower and using the energy of water as well.
So be aware of these things if this is your strongest archetype. Are you actually utilizing these different elemental energies to your advantage? If this is one of the archetypes that you’re not really tapped into, how can you start to use the energy of water and take a salt bath, or use the energy of earth and cultivate the crystals and start to build your crystal collection? Or how can you use the energy of fire? I like to use that one in a metaphorical and a literal way where it’s the fire of our sacral chakra and energy and passion and sex drive, but also it’s the literal fire that we might create and then stare into in our meditation. So the Crystal Healer’s strengths are that as a healer you thrive with tools like crystals, smudge sticks, totems, anything that sets the stage for you. And as discussed before this simply allows you or it helps you, guides you to tap into that special place, that intuitive channel within you, that connection to your higher self. So, no, you don’t have to have these things because the answers are already within you, all of this power is already within you. That intuitive ability is already within you.
And I was kind of describing that before when I was talking about the Oracle cards and how I used to depend on them more and now they’re just more of this special, fun tool that will aid in intuitive readings but that I don’t depend on. So that could also be a challenge for the Crystal Healer is not to depend on her tools too much and know that she also has the power within her without all of her tools and her purse and her Mary Poppins bag. The strength is also that when you do use them, you’re going to feel like, whoa, I’m on fire. I’m so tapped into my intuition and I’ve set the stage for myself to really just be this clear channel. So they amplify that experience. Strengths also of the Crystal Healer, when you spend time in nature, you get your best ideas. So again, when I’m recording this is winter time and it might be cold and it might not be possible for you to go sit by the ocean or sit in the woods and meditate and get your best ideas in those places of silence outside but nature is around us all the time. It’s in the oils, it’s in the crystals, it’s in our house plants. So hold a crystal, have house plants, burn your Sage, go hike, go camp, jump in the water. Allow yourself to connect to nature because this is your strength.
And this is similar to that energy that was in the Three-Eyed Raven too where it’s like if you live in that 30th floor of a sky-rise, you might not feel like you’re getting your best ideas, your open channel to receive so bring nature to you. I’m not saying you have to go move out into the country but how can you surround yourself by earth energy and use all of those elements? Challenges of the Crystal Healer: so because this part, this Inner Healer Archetype is so energy-sensitive, you might feel overwhelmed in certain environments. That’s going to be like loud places, when loud music is on, the TV is blaring, when you’re in a crowded space or standing in a line, when you’re traveling, when you’re on public transportation, when people next to you are fighting, or maybe when you’re fighting and you’re feeling the energy of the other person in this combative mode as well. So you feel it. And so, the challenge is to protect your energy. Not that you can never get on the subway again or that you will never be in a confrontational argument with somebody again, but instead, how can you protect your energy so that you’re not such this raw, exposed, naked human being without energetic boundaries or protection?
Another challenge of the Crystal Healer is that you might just have a hard time protecting your energy and just need some time alone to recharge. So zip up your energy, carry your grounding crystals, take time to be by yourself. I like to give myself a time out. It’s like, okay, Sarah’s going to take a time out. I’m putting myself into the corner. I just need sometimes to go upstairs and close the bedroom door or to go take that salt bath or to, when I’m in public, go into the bathroom stall and pull out my oil, take a deep breath in, or do some tapping on my chest on my thymus gland to just program some supportive beliefs or some grounding energy so that I can recharge because otherwise, it feels very draining and overwhelming. So challenge is the strength at that same time where it’s like, yes, you’re sensitive and you’re so tapped into all these energies, but remember to protect it. Give yourself the time alone to be able to recharge your batteries. And you might resonate with that, that introvert energy of also needing just to be alone and also finding joy in being alone. There’s nothing wrong with that either.
So the goddess energies here that show up in this archetype are Goddess Nemetona and that’s N-E-M-E-T-O-N-A, Nemetona, and she’s the goddess of sacred space. She says to create an altar or visit a powerful place to connect with the divine. So this is really just as we spoke about already where you are going into that place, creating that sacred space or altar in your home or in your car or in nature. When I was a little girl, you guys, well, I had an amazing babysitter who ended up being more of this mentor and she would host summer camp and we would go out and we would just spend the whole day out in the woods just learning about life and earth. And one of the things she had us do was go find our, I don’t know what she called it, it was just our spot. But now I realize it was our sacred space. It was that one tree you would always go to and you’d sit there and you’d draw a picture or you just go there and you sit by yourself for a little while. And I had this place out in nature where it was just like it comes to me in my meditation still to this day at 31 years old. It’s still coming through. I remember that place so well because it was my sacred space. So sacred space is not just in your house or in your car, it can be anywhere. And it can be you, you can carry it with you as well. So this goddess is just reminding us to create that and then to go there and tap in to connect to divine energy and universal energy, however you want to verbalize that.
The other goddess energy here is Goddess Coventina and she’s the goddess of purification. She says it is time for a cleansing detoxification of your body and your mind. So this is the goddess that reminds us to purify, to do the detox. I used to be so against detoxing because it was really more of a lack of education and it was because all I ever was marketed to about was juice cleanses and the master cleanse, and don’t eat food or take these pills and just take these diet pills or these weight loss pills. And I never resonated with that energy of detox. What I know now is detox is absolutely essential to empaths but also human beings in general. We have to be able to detox. So I support in my body more detox on a daily basis through the supplements that I take, through the tea that I drink, to the foods that I eat, but it’s also energetic detox. And in this case, it’s detoxing other people’s shit so that you can let that go and release. So this goddess is really just embodied in this archetype because we want to always tap into that release, release, release energy that you can truly let go, purify, cleanse, and come back into this place of purity.
Goddess White Tara, one of my favorite goddesses is the goddess of sensitivity. So she says you are becoming increasingly sensitive, avoid harsh relationships, environments, situations, and chemicals. And again, this is really to the point we just spoke about, which is that one of the challenges of the Crystal Healer Archetype is loud places, those chemical smells, the Uber drivers who have synthetic aromas, crowded spaces, the energy of people, energy vampires. And so, this is going to be something again, to be aware of. So if you’re feeling like, ooh yes, I’m uber-sensitive in my life right now, call in the energy of Goddess White Tara and ask her, please support me today in protecting my energy and using my sensitivity as a superpower instead of something that makes me feel completely depleted of my energy.
And the last goddess is Goddess Mawu and it’s M-A-W-U, Mawu, and she’s the goddess of Mother Earth. So again, similar to the Three-Eyed Raven, Crystal Healers also tapped into earth energy, but less of the cycles of the earth and more of the elements of the earth. So think about nature. When you walk outside your door, where is nature? How can you bring more of it into your life or bring it into your home? It says you are called upon to help with environmentalism and I think that that is also something that we can give back. So it’s like this archetype is really utilizing the tools from Mother Earth so how can she also give back and live more of this life of zero waste? So it’s not that we can’t use Mother Earth as medicine and energy as this place and tool to ground ourselves or hold the crystal, but maybe you’re done with that crystal and you can give it back to Mother Earth, or maybe you can support organizations that are helping the conservation of our precious resources on this planet. So this energy is that grounding energy of Mother Earth, this give-and-take, this flow, this economy between you, an energy exchange between you and Mother Earth.
So just to wrap up here, the Crystal Healer is so tapped into this earth energy she has her Mary Poppins bag that she carries. And I just want to challenge you to think about a few more things before we do wrap up. So again, it might help to close your eyes as you tap in here, if you can in this moment, and just ask yourself, as the Crystal Healer, how would you speak? How would you act? How would you receive? How would you show up in all areas of your life if you embodied more of the Crystal Healer? What actions would you take? Is there anything that you would change? How would you love on yourself? And then bring the Crystal Healer in front of you. However you envisioned her at the beginning of this episode, bring her in front of you now and ask her, how can she support you today? How can she support you today? What parts of her essence would be helpful to you in this moment? She’s here to help you, she’s here to support you. She’s within you, she’s part of you. So what parts of her can be helpful to you can you ask of her? And then are there any parts of this archetype that need to be healed? What parts of your Crystal Healer feel less identified with, less loved on? Parts of it that are the shadow or maybe just something you forgot and this has awoken something that you had simply forgotten. So notice that too.
The Crystal Healer is here to support you so ask her and then also ask how you can support her today? Beautiful. So let me know if you had any ‘aha’ moments, any breakthroughs from today’s episode on the Crystal Healer Archetype. I can’t wait to share more with you in the next several episodes. Take this and maybe even journal about it, my loves. Just go write down what does this mean to you? How is this shifting your perspective and how you heal yourself when we tap into our potential as being our own greatest healer? Because you already have this within you.
