Judy Hall, one of the foremost experts on crystal healing and author of more than 40 books, has just released a sixth volume in her Crystal Prescriptions series: Crystals for Ancestral Clearing, Soul Retrieval, Spirit Release and Karmic Healing. With advanced degrees in cultural astronomy and astrology, Hall is a trained healer, psychic and counselor whose specialities are past-life readings and regression; soul healing; reincarnation; astrology and psychology; divination; and crystal lore. Here, we asked her some in-depth questions about her latest A–Z Guide.

Bodhi Tree: Your new book delves into the topic of “karmic groove.” What is a karmic groove, and how do you know if you’re stuck in one?

Judy Hall: I can best describe this as “going ’round and ’round on the same old same old.” You may be familiar with the definition of insanity as doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different outcome. Well, that’s the karmic grove. You repeat patterns and experiences with the same, or different, people time and time again.

BT: Which crystals can release us from these karmic grooves?

JH: There’s a whole slew of karmic-release crystals, and more are appearing all the time—I try to update those on my website. Chrysotile and dumortierite are useful, but I also use shungite and Celtic quartz.

BT: How can you heal family trauma or a family tree with crystals?

JH: Very simply! Put appropriate crystals on a diagram of a tree and ask that the healing go up and down the ancestral line. Full instructions are in my books and the Members Community on my website.

BT: How do crystals actually work to expand the human energy field, or release what you call “outdated programs” and replace them with a new imprint?

JH: I need to bring together several theories to attempt an explanation. It’s much too complicated to go into here, but basically, as crystals have a stable inner structure with coherent energy, they entrain or transduce the less stable field (the physical and etheric bodies) into a more stable one, allowing a new program to be imprinted.

BT: Can crystals really trap bad energy? If so, is there a way to cleanse them to get rid of it?

JH: Absolutely. Shungite is actually composed of hollow buckyballs that trap the toxic energy. I always use Petaltone Clear2Light and Z14 essences to cleanse my crystals, but you could use water, sound, light, smudging and other methods. The beauty of using Petaltone is that it automatically recharges the crystal. With other methods, you need to put it out in sun or moonlight.

BT: How do you know when your chakras are blocked or blown, and what can you do to heal them?

JH: Basically, you feel “out of sorts,” nothing in life goes well. Crystals reset them. My Crystal Prescriptions, Volume 4 has a very long list of appropriate crystals and how to use them.

BT: What’s the best way to select crystals?

JH: Intuitively! Whichever appeals to you most strongly, or, failing that, you can dowse [i.e., use another crystal as a pendulum and pose a question to the subconscious in order to receive a “yes” or “no” answer].

BT: What is the process for adding crystals to water? Do you need to recharge the crystals to keep the potency?

JH: First, you need to use cleansed crystals, ensuring they are not toxic. (All my books and my website have a list of potentially toxic crystals.) And, yes, the crystals will benefit from being recharged. I prefer to make crystal essences. Again, instructions are in my books and on the Members Community pages of my website.

BT: If you could only own one crystal, which one would it be and why?

JH: A Brandenberg amethyst. It does everything I ask of it—and more.
