*Another book published dance* … Yippee! As promised I have another book written just for you! This time we take a look at crystal healing and a crystal healing technique of my own design! Thus, in celebration of the Spring equinox, lets take a look at what the book has to offer.
Here within a crystal healing technique that is designed to be used at home with the least amount of crystals, yet is an holistic and effective system for stress management and improving well-being!
At a glance, this book provides the following:
Crystals are as wonderfully fascinating from a spiritual perspective as they are from an aesthetic and geological perspective – especially the ability of crystals to facilitate healing without the use of modern medicine by harnessing the body’s innate healing abilities. I have spent several years studying crystal healing, even obtaining a diploma, in a quest to find ways to intuitively use crystals and distill that into healing methods that can easily be used at home by anyone.
During this research I have explored various concepts surrounding crystal healing and how they may be applied to more modern spirituality and alternate medicine. During these experimentations I created the 10 Stone Healing Method, which utilizes 10 crystals and the chakras. This system is introduced in Crystal Clairvoyance I.
We start our journey with a discussion of Crystals, Crystal Healing and the Chakras to provide some background information. After which I outline the logic being the 10 Stone Method for Holistic Healing and how to apply this method for crystal healing. We then discuss each of the 10 stones in turn, which includes their minerology, occurrence, metaphysical properties, crystal care, and substitutes. I conclude the booklet with an overview table that includes a summary about each of these gemstones.
I appreciate any feedback, comments and/or reviews about this book as I am constantly striving to improve on the system and to make it relatable to all my fellow crystal healing enthusiasts!
In addition to the crystal healing guidebook, I am going to publish the full set of crystal artworks in the book as notebooks (10 crystals = 10 notebooks). These are college wide feint lined notebooks with crystal line art in the margins for you to doodle and colour as well!
You can use the notebooks to record your crystal healing journey or to simply have a crystal themed notebook for daily ideas and to-dos.
I have an ongoing set of free resources for crystals, such as Oracle cards (including some prototypes of the crystal profiles in Crystal Clairvoyance 1), Crystal grids (and upcoming crystal infographics!).

Woohoo! I finally completed this book, and in record time might I add . Phew, this book was quite a challenge to complete, but I decided to sit myself down and get it done! I am very happy with the result and I am certain that it’ll make a great contribution to the runic body of knowledge. So without further ado lets get to the juicy stuff! LOL!
Are you an open-minded spiritual practitioner? A seeker of truth and knowledge? Someone who is willing to discuss alternate perspectives? Then this book is for you.
Here within is my attempt at finding the truth behind the purpose and origin of the Elder Futhark as well as intuitively deciphering their somewhat obscure meanings.
At a glance this book provides:
In this context, this book does not discuss the traditional meanings or interpretations of the runes, but rather more modern outlooks and perspectives on each. Instead of adding more content to already confusing and conflicting traditional/conventional meanings – I have opted for the opposite, to simplify rather than complicate. I have tried to distill the core of each rune through my studies into their history, linguistics and metaphysics in order to make clear delineations between the runes. Thus, brief mentions are made to traditional meanings in favour of more discussion around the transference of the runes into our daily lives with reference to more familiar circumstances and challenges.
I am quite partial to the metaphysical symbolism of animals, plants and objects, thus this book includes plenty representations form the animal kingdom as well as everyday objects and some minor contributions from herbology. I have tried to keep to the mythology related to the Germanic tribes and to the everyday references of people living in Iron Age Europe. Therefore, some of my interpretations are similar to their traditional counterparts, but the majority of them have been cast anew.
The Elder Futhark Arcanum is twice the length (in words) and has twice as many pictures than the Celestial Rune Sigils (which is an Amazon Top 50 Bestseller AND has a rating of 4.5+). Also I have placed it as the 3rd book in the rune series – which is likely a bit topsy-turvy considering that it should be the second, but if it wasn’t for the bindrunes I created in CRS I would not have had the in-depth understanding in order to write Arcanum. So I thought it more apt to leave CRS as the 2nd and Arcanum as the 3rd book in the series.
There is one more book I would like to add here – but this one is not going to come out anytime soon as I am not going to make such as a push for it as I did with Arcanum (so keep your eyes peeled for more in the future!).
I am going to take a bit of a break from writing books for a bit and then I think I’m going to move onto my Crystal Healing series… anyways, I digress. The Elder Futhark Arcanum also comes with its own Deck! Additionally, I designed the book pictures and deck separately in order to each set of images to be more suited to their respective formats.
A reimagining of the Elder Futhark Runes, including modern interpretations and abstract geometric imagery. Its symbolism was inspired by the natural surroundings and life histories of the people during that time. To preserve historical authenticity the set contains Proto-Norse writing, with Proto-Germanic names and English transliterations. 100% hand created cards using digital wizardry!
Two options to choose from:
I have created print-on-demand products for all the art featured in the book! You can find them on my Redbubble Store! These include T-shirts, bags, mugs, posters, books, masks and more!

I have decided to start an YouTube channel for All Natural Spirit with the specific aim to bring you my playlists for meditation music.
I have found that listening to music during meditation can be very beneficial to your practise, especially when you breathe rhythmically according to the beat of the music. This settles the mind and aids in focussing on your breath whilst giving your floating attention something to attach to during meditation. Free floating attention is the part of your attention reserved by your brain, which remains alert to predators – this is helpful lest you be pounced on by a lion, but not so much when concentration is required. This is also part of the attention span that aids the ‘monkey mind’ to be restless during meditation with daydreaming and thinking about your to-do lists … therefore, giving it some music to listen to soothes the restless beast so to speak .
I have over the years collected a bunch of music that I use for this purpose. I often listen to these songs when working or studying as well since they are not distracting and allows me to focus on the task at hand. It is quite a challenge to find meditative music that does not irritate me after a while as I am very sensitive to external stimuli such as lights and sounds – so I hope that my music collection will be as relaxing to you as they are to me. I am also separating the playlists based on their uses (such as shamanic chants for healing) and those more suited to studying/working (like those created by Adrian von Ziegler).
Hence, I have opened the channel to create a set of playlists containing these songs, ambience and music to be easily accessible to both myself and for you!
Thus, I invite you to join me on my YouTube channel – I am planning on adding new music to these lists when I find them as well as creating more topic-based lists; so feel free to subscribe and turn on the notifications.
Additionally, these playlist contain the original videos by the artists themselves to that all premium proceeds/ad revenue may go to them. I am also making an effort to find great indie and/or unknown artists – so watch this space!
Here is a list of playlists, their music duration and description. I will likely update the content below as I collect new songs for new playlists.

Way back when I started All Natural Spirit in 2016; my very first business concept was to provide physical spirituality based products, which included snow quartz sourced from my own backyard bushveld as well as other handmade items.
Alas this did not take off and I had to re-imagine ANS. It took a couple of tries including years of research and determined focus on the things that gave me the most joy to create and spend my time on. Eventually this lead to my various my Oracle Decks (see the end of the post for links) as well as my RedBubble Art Store and now my Top 50 Amazon Bestseller Arcane Book(s).
I was going through some old posts that I had converted back to drafts from the early days of ANS. I rediscovered my crystal grid post and I remembered all the hard work and research that went into them. There are some really great grid ideas and since becoming a certified Crystal Healer I decided to dust off these old posts and add a few new things to give them renewed life!
For more information about Crystal Healing – see my The Science of Crystal Healing & Gemstone Therapy post.
Crystal grids are used to arrange crystals and other symbolic objects into geometric patterns for a specific personal purpose. The objects arranged on the grid are more powerful than the separate components alone. The whole becomes more than the sum of its parts, especially when combined with your own personal intentions.
Crystal grids are often used for crystal healing and the laying of stones. They are also used for protective purposes when placed in the home, such as in an entrance way or an office space.
Geometry plays an important part in the crystal grid layout. This creates synergistic and harmonic energy focused for a specific purpose, such as healing, protection and projection.
Sacred geometry provides a myriad of layout ideas and inspiration for crystal grids. Combining sacred geometry and crystals is not only a powerful way of grid creation, but they are visually striking designs that can act as grounding tools during meditation.
Here is a Free Downloadable PDF file with 3 NEW sacred geometry patterns to get you started with crystal grid layouts! It includes high resolution images of the seed of life, flower of life and metatron’s cube!
This crystal grid was one of the first healing tools that I created for myself. It is a hand inked crystal grid on a large wooden placemat (25 cm length x 23 cm width x 3 cm thickness, rounded square).
It features the Seed of Life, which an ancient and sacred geometrical shape, made up of seven interlinked circles in six fold symmetry. The Seed of Life has been used in many cultures as protective symbols and has been extensively used throughout history from ancient coinage to decorative imperial architecture.
It is the progenitor of the Flower of Life (a hexagonal pattern of 13 – 19 interlinked circles). The Seed of life represents one of the Universal Symbols as it is present in every living and non-living entity in the universe. Atoms, which are always in vibrational motion make up the universe and are able to arrange themselves into regular lattices (i.e., regular structures), such as is depicted by the Seed – and the Flower of Life.
Thus, using a Seed of Life design in a crystal grid structure adds to its symbolic meaning and metaphysical power by integrating the energies and intentions of the crystals, the user and the grid.
One can meditate upon the crystal grid or the meanings of crystal represented in the grid as part of focussing. The crystals are all linked to the concept of meditation and their corresponding chakra centres which play the most active part during meditation.
In the image above I use amethyst, clear quartz and black tourmaline, their corresponding chakra centers are illustrated in the diagram below:
A single clear quartz generator or snow quartz crystal is placed in the centre as the universal energy source to integrate and liberate the energies of the grid (and user) into the spiritual plane.
The inner circle is divided into 2 triangles with the placement of 3 crystals each, which assist with meditation and the integrating thoughts towards light:
The outer ring channels grounding energies to the inner ring and central anchor. It includes the following crystals:
I hope you find peace and light using this grid! There are two more layouts on their way!
