Crystals are Not for Empaths, Emos or Dreamers

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Crystals are very beautiful and pretty, but unfortunately not everyone should have or work with Crystals & Gems. Maybe we can, but if you are a healer, then hear me out. Working on other people (clients) and their issues, does not mean they are like us, and doesn’t mean that if they are a healer, we can be blind to other peoples sensitivity around crystals. I have found so often that people are so closed minded and turned off when asked to learn something new spiritually, that they caste it out immediately. Being taught the next levels of deeper level of spirituality requires an open mind and an open heart. As I said, just because its good for you, doesn’t mean crystals are healthy for everyone.

You won’t read any article like this about crystals anywhere else, because no one challenges “new” things and crystals are new in spirituality and as an elder, I know this because I was an adult in the 70s and 1980s and watched everything develop through my path as a healer. Because I am a very seasoned folk healer, empath, and dreamer (shaman), I do have medicine to share about the negative sides of spirituality, of new age and of no common sense added to the spiritual movements.

If crystals don’t bother you, this article is not for you then. But if you are a healer, it maybe for your clients. If you are an empath or a sensitive, then definitely its for you. I have been a full time energy healer of the four bodies of a human being for 30 years and have a lot of experience, both in my energy bodies, astral bodies, out of bodies and  working with other healers, as I do working with the clients over the years. There are just some things we learn, by the duration of time if we stick to it long enough. Crystals are one such learning. 

For most people, crystals don’t really bother the mind / body that much, some can be a bit sensitive to them, but not enough to let them go as a spiritual tool.  But Crystals are a huge detrimental and fragments the 1. Empaths 2. Dreamers and 3. Emotionally Sensitives (emos / sensitives) because they spike and fragment our astral body (soul) and bring highs and lows emotionally through the Emotional Body. They tend to spike these people and make them anger more easily (and less patient), they make them more jittery and worried because they also spike their nervous system.

If you’re sensitive to large crowds, being in groups of people or groups of people are over stimulating and not your idea of fun, or festivals, ball games etc wherever there are small or large amounts of people, Crystals are not for you, even if you have them. 

Crystals carry way too much energy and because of this, they replicate and repeat energetics in a cycle loop and emos, dreamers and empaths are receptors and receivers and that energy goes straight in, rather than outward. Crystals that have no effect on people have the opposite, the crystal energy moves and goes outward, and doesn’t effect them.

Crystals tend to be good for those protected by the physical element that they carry in life which is much stronger of a block than opened receptive people or empaths. Very grounded people are generally pretty physical, those who are less emotional or not the dreamer types also are not really bothered by crystals.

For the “sensitive” types of the three listed, I suggest letting go of ALL your crystals and within a month you will feel an immediate calming effect, and an energetic shift. That crystal high fluttery vibration energy is causing the problem and generally it will fall away from one day to three months, depending upon how sensitive you are. Psychics and Mediums are not really sensitive to crystals, but seers and prophetic seers are. Crystals that have high impact, the more intense and bigger the crystals are. Especially the purple ones like Amethyst and large clear crystals, all the way to very lowest impact crystals such as Serpentine.

I remember in the 1990s when Crystals first came on the scene, I held one the size of my pinky fingernail in my hand and set it in my left palm (the receptive hand) and 110 volts of electricity surged through my body and felt like I got shocked. For days I had to rub my hand because of the irritating vibration that kept repeating a loop. Finally it wore off and I never picked up another crystal over the past 30 years.

When one is young, under 35, they don’t even “know” their energy system yet and once they hit 40, they will find out much more. I know that we live in a very saturated crystal overload in spiritual communities, but here me out, because I share in order to improve your health as a folk healer, not to just share information. Crystals first and foremost spike the astral (soul) body within us, and the mental astral body too (which rules your dreams at not, the projective dreamer), and not in good ways.

The astral bodies “are the complete energy body, the whole one”… all the Hindu’s did was divide up the whole astral body into sections and call them chakras. Charkas really are more about the energy body in “relationship” to the physical body, NOT the astral bodies (the two astral bodies we have). Certain things dry up the moisture of our astral body (the emotional body and the soul astral body, not the mental astral body) and this moisture of emotional and internal magnetic energetic flow is very important. Not the external flow that crystals produce or its relationship to the mental astral body. Pot and shamanic plants do the same thing, it “dries up” the moisture needed in the soul astral body and its counterpart, the emotional body… like a desert. But they tend to not have a very big impact on the physical body or the mental body.

The “hard” energy of crystals and gemstones are spikes of energy that flow outwards, its mini shocks to the soul, and unless your dead, you don’t need that type of shocks to your sensitive non physical bodies. This is why for the people who it doesn’t bother (non receptive energy types), crystals make them feel great and gets their body charged up and alive feeling. But for empaths, sensitives and dreamers, it make one nervous or intensifies and breaks the rhythms of the nervous system. This is because it charges the magnetic energy of the emotional body more than normal and that is a negative experience on an energetic level, not a mental or physical level.

It also fragments the dreaming soul body which is a part of our extended souls and animism souls. Crystals also attract shadows in your dreams for those who are dreamers and have to deal with such reality. This is because crystals carry and that electrical  outward directional energy and the emo/soul/dreamer/sensitive carries the internal directional energy.

stones that healI remember the first time in 1993 when crystals and gems in spiritual places were starting to increase and come onto the scene in spiritual shops and mystical stores. I took my first fingernail size clear quartz crystal and held it in my hand and I could feel a surge of energy, like electricity shooting through my enter body, like I was getting an electric shock or putting my finger in a socket.

I am intensely sensitive as an empath and dreamer, but it effects other empaths the same way even if they are not that sensitive, its just that its “unconscious” to their body/soul connection or their mind/emotional body connection which are generally separated from early trauma or woundings that have not been dug that deep into and brought back up.

From birth to around 38 years old, I was pretty much all magnetic, extremely sensitive to any crystal, but from being a healer and going to healers a long time and all issues dealt with, healed and released, crystals like that don’t bother me too much anymore because my electric-magnetic natural fields of my astral bodies are unified.  I still don’t have them around me, because I am a dreamer just like all wine or alcohol had to go too, which are detrimental for the three groups of emotionals. 

Not everyone is this sensitive to Crystal energy of course, and certainly not dominant magnetic, but they are not for everyone and no one out there in the world ever speaks of the more negative sides of crystals. They are in the ground for a reason, just like the roots of trees are. Even though new age stores went crazy in the 90s and 00s selling them in Shops, Gem Shows and Stores, they also marketing them as a spiritual tool, now everyone has them…

So reassess who you are, how your magnetic or electric body works naturally, and trade out your crystals if you are a sensitive, emo or dreamer and replace it with natural stones, like river stones, ocean stones, and mountain stones. For the super sensitive I suggest black stones that are not gem or crystal based stones.

Replacing Crystals…
Empaths, sensitives and dreamers main spiritual tool should be bowls of water, bottles of water or fountains of water where you sleep, in your home or at work which bring peace and emotional energy to sooth the emotional body, your astral body and your dream body. The second tool to use is streams, rivers, ocean and land stones.

I try to understand the ancients and their wise ways by what they did and they worked with stones, very large stones, caves and rocks and so I recommend letting crystals and gems go, and get down the very grounding natural stones that are darker in color, especially those connected with water.

stone jewelryThere are many beautiful natural river and ocean stones and the reason they are very powerful for empaths, dreamers and sensitives is because they give off powerful grounding energy, which is what truly most emotional people need to keep them flowing and in balance. So next time you take a hike near a mountain stream or river, take a look at the stones and bring a few home.

Try working with them like you do your crystals and within a month, you will start to notice the anger, the jitters and the not being grounded in your body start to change. I have had some clients notice a change with a day or two, especially if they have big crystals and gems.


For Dreamers (astral travelers, time jumpers,
out of bodiers, lucid dreamers)…

Crystal energy is how MK Ultra (trained military dream walkers) tracks you, I have ZERO residue so I cannot be tracked in dream walking… can’t say that for those who even have “one” crystal. It may not be important now, but in the future, it will.

  1. Thank you for the article Phoenix!

    After combing through my house for various crystal and crystal-like objects, I find that I am uncertain of how widely I should define crystals and gemstones. Obviously quartz crystal points and geodes would be included. Also family heirloom jewelry (I don’t feel right giving that away, but perhaps I can store it carefully until the right family member comes along to pass to on to?). Probably also anything in the faceted lead glass category, such as “crystal” sun-catchers and Swarovski crystal necklaces.

    But then there are things such as rose quartz beads, or pieces of rock-tumbled garnet or citrine. Also, many of the river rocks I pick up are largely composed quartz, though their energy is certainly very different from quartz crystal points. Then there are rocks like flint, obsidian, and petrified wood that are crystalline. Even basalt rock is often found with a 6-sided crystalline structure!

    I guess it comes down to what we are most sensitive to? But any further recommendations would be most appreciated. Thank you again!


    1. Thanks GG for writing. The biggies are the main two: Amethyst and Quartz Crystals, they carry so much spiked energy. The ones diluted with regular stones mixed in, or petrified wood and flint are much lower in their outward energy.

      Those who are “really sensitive” might want to put them all away for a year and then get them out just one at a time to test them, and how they feel that month (especially the jewelry) since its worn.

      Test them and do the experiments to see how your body responds, after a year or two of keeping them all out of your space. Also I suggest people store them outside in a shed or barn or even the garage, just so they are out of the main rooms. Even the ones you keep, keep them out of your bedroom because that is where you dream.

    Very interesting for me an empath, highly sensitive type who has always had lots of crystals etc. They have a voice and sometimes I wonder if they can get up to mischief. Thank you.

    OH MY GOSH!!! Your article resinated deeply with me… wow. So, my question is: how should I honor (dispose of) the gemstones and crystal I have in my possession?

    1. Hi Lori, you can gift them to those who are not Empaths or Dreams (sensitive types) or you can sell them and the right people will purchase them if you set the intention to all your crystals to go to those who are very earthy and they won’t harm. If you have not a care in the world about money or that, then I would BURY them back into mother earth and ask her to receive them back where they have lived for millions of years (in the ground)>
