Are you learning crystal healing but find yourself overthinking things? Do you doubt yourself or are you stuck in analysis paralysis? Could you be holding yourself back from getting started with crystals or crystal grids?
I get asked a lot of questions about crystals and one thing that comes up a with some people is overthinking… It’s normal to have questions when we start learning about crystals but you must not let this hold you back.
Reading books and taking courses about crystal healing is a good thing but at some point, you need to apply what you have learned.
You Don’t Need To Know Everything
You don’t need to know absolutely everything to get started with crystals. I get asked by people who seem to think they must know exactly how a crystal or crystal grid works to use them. The truth is nobody really knows this for sure and to be honest it should not hold you back.
“You do not need to know the workings of a car engine to be able to drive one.”
Caught In Analysis Paralysis
I have seen this search for answers lead some people to never really experience the power of crystals. I have known people talk themselves out of trying crystal grids based on some idea they had in their heads. Please don’t intellectualise this. Direct Experience is just as important as understanding the theory and may be the part that you need to really understand things.
“We learn best through experience.”
Too Many Different Opinions?
If you are looking for differences in opinion on ANY subject, you will find them. There is more than one way to do something and as with any subject you research from healthy diets, science, martial arts to yoga, the teachers and experts all have their own opinions and ways of doing things.
If this is confusing to you, rather than getting lots of different opinions on a subject, I think it is best to choose your teacher or author and just stick with them. It may be the only way to see if something works for you. It’s only fair to give them a go and test things out for a while.
You can always adjust things to suit you as you learn more but I think it is best to learn with some structure to start.
Second Guessing, Fear & Doubting
Am I doing this right? Have I chosen the wrong crystal?…
Sometimes I see people that have got started with crystals but are doing a great job of sabotaging things through doubting what they are doing or learning. A negative mindset can block anything you are learning or practicing, spiritual or physical.
Learning crystal healing should not need to be complex or stressful. Try to have some faith in what you’re doing. If you’re not confident with relying on your intuition with crystals then learn from others who know more than you do.
Find someone who you like that has lots of experience and you won’t go far wrong. You could save yourself a lot of time and avoid trying to reinvent the wheel.
Stop Overthinking Things!
I hope this has given you something to think about when learning crystal healing. If your mind has been caught up like this or you are still trying to formulate the mathematical formula to explain the energetic properties of Clear Quartz – STOP NOW! You will have better results by putting your worries and doubts aside and just trying things out.
