Energy Healing

How did I stumble upon Crystals and Energy Healing? 

The energy healing was easy was an easy connection.  I work with an acupuncturist, Dr. Calvin Lee in Modesto.  Acupuncture is part of energy healing and it deals with energy flow through the body - specifically called meridians.  As for crystals - I was given a crystal as a gift from a patient, then I got another one that same week from another Modesto colleague.  I remembered as a child I had a stone collection and it brought back some great memories.  I knew that there's a thought that crystals possessed healing abilities and feng shui influences.  So, I thought I'd look them up in books and on the internet.  Since then, I've collected a few other crystals on my own due to my collecting habits.  I also collected a book called "All about Crystals" by Connie Islin.

Purpose of this crystal/gems webpage? 

It's to talk about some terminology and characteristics I've learned while exploring crystals and energy healing.  The concept of energy healing was introduced to me by first reading about acupuncture.  What's next?  Maybe Reiki?

Who am I?

I'm Vince Liau, I work part time at Surgical Artistry.  I am in-between colleges and trying to figure out my real future.  While I'm here, I'm learning a bit about acupuncture, and the other great surgical things they do here.  I do the odd jobs, and now I've been assigned to make odd web pages (like this one).  This is a start.  I'm learning from Dr. Lee, as he has made web pages for what seems to be a lifetime.  I'm no expert at crystals & gem stones - yet.  In fact I'm quite the beginner, but I've learned a whole bunch of things recently and I wanted to share, while I'm learning about how to make web pages.  If you really want to experience energy medicine, try acupuncture with Dr. Calvin Lee.  He also does Botox in Modesto, CA.

Crystal Terminology



Occurs in sedimentary rocks.  They have a central cavity with internal crystal formations or concentric bands.  The exterior is usually a limestone or a related rock, while the interior contains quartz crystals.    There are also geodes that are completely filled with crystal, being solid all the way through.  These geode are called nodules.

Clearing Crystals

Okay, here you have to leap with me.  Clearing is necessary before using any stone for healing.  The clearer the energy of a healing stone, the more powerful it is.  Crystals and healing gem stones need to be cleared as soon as they are purchased.  Methods listed below:

Diva of the Crystals

The diva of the stone is the stone's life-force energy.  Talking to the Diva of the stone is part of "programming" the stone with an intent which the stone can "accept" or "reject."

I'm not the only one into gemstones / crystals

Some stones and their metaphysical properties

You can find these gemstone healing / properties on numerous books and websites, I've listed here ones that I'm interested in and properties that pertain to me.
