Cleansing , Decks , Oracle , Review / 28 October 2016

A lot of card readers use crystals in their practice. Either because of a ‘gemstone-fetish’ (guilty), to ‘infuse’ cards with energy, to protect themselves or perhaps some clients expect to see them. And then there is of course gemstone therapy. Carry Me Crystals Oracle combines a few things of the above.

But I am quite allergic to writers who…

When a book is touching on healing serious psychical illnesses controversy comes into play. That is definitely the case with Brandon Bays’ book The Journey. The Journey is no longer a story about a miraculous healing of a tumor but has also become a therapy on to itself. So how to read a book like that? As the writings of a possibly inspirational woman or as one who wants to sell a course, even if that course or therapy could be beneficial?
