In the last few months, I’ve noticed a recurring theme in private sessions, namely dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. This typically happens after heat, exercise and illness. Dehydration and electrolyte imbalance set up an urgency in the session. There is no way we can benefit from healing work when the physical body is compromised in this manner. On a related note, I should also say, that practitioners cannot deliver decent Energy Healing and Bodywork sessions if they themselves are tending toward dehydration and electrolyte imbalance.
The first step has to be to rectify the imbalance. When I notice such an issue in an in-person session, I ask the person to sit up and I provide an initial 8 oz of water, and after that, I can resume the session. If it is a remote session, I ask the person to get herself a drink of water.
But even once the water has been drunk, there is still more work to do. Firstly, 8 oz of water will be insufficient if the client has been dehydrated and secondly, a glass of water does not provide any of the necessary electrolytes. Consequently, there will be a significant lag between drinking the water and achieving the desired balance in the physical body. Note that when it comes to electrolytes, drinking big quantities of water can actually cause a dilution of the electrolytes, and this is physiologically undesirable.
Fortunately, all is not lost, because crystals can help. The crystal that works excellently with all water-related issues, is Moonstone. For yourself, or an in-person session, take a smooth piece of Moonstone, like a sphere, a lingam or a palm stone, and rub this on the abdomen, chest, shoulders, back, legs and feet. In Crystal Surgery we call this “first layer infusion.”
In a remote session, place the proxy crystal on a “bed” of Moonstone. This is done by putting two Moonstone palm stones down in the work space, and then placing the proxy crystal on top of the Moonstone. Next, use a Moonstone wand to grid the proxy crystal, distributing the Moonstone energy throughout the energy field.
Another stone that can help is Magnesite. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Magnesite, it looks a lot like Calcite, and is chemically very similar to Calcite, except it is less stable. Actually, it is this instability that makes it so helpful to us – because it is releasing desirable ions of Magnesium into our energy field. Among other things, Magnesite helps our nerves, and helps our electrolyte balance.
Another important mineral is Phosphorous. A crystal that is rich in Phosphorous is Apatite. Again, you can either infuse the Apatite into the first layer of the energy field, in the same way as described with Moonstone, or you can grid with it. Apatite has a remarkably calming effect, probably because of the way it induces balance.
Using Moonstone, Magnesite and Apatite, in these ways can be very refreshing, but you, or your client, MUST follow up. Remember that dehydration and electrolyte imbalance are physiological conditions that seriously compromise the physical body and therefore, sensible physical measures should also be applied. If, like me, you don’t want to use sugary drinks with artificial coloring, in the name of good health, find a high quality electrolyte drink to keep on hand, at work, at home and when exercising.
Personally, I think it is a pity to use the time of a crystal healing session to correct a physiological imbalance that a) shouldn’t have been allowed to happen in the first place and b) can be corrected by availing one’s self of the excellent products that are so easily available to us these days. Let’s be more responsible, and attend to our hydration and electrolyte balance on a daily basis – a sure step to enjoying improved health and vitality.
