Although the Home Page of this site displays my Blogs going backwards (from the present), chronologically – I’ve decided to create this Page as a sort of “TOC” or Table of Contents – so you can learn more about each before opening/reading them.
It’s also handy Cut-And-Paste resource for each Blog’s URL’s and – Share them with your Friends & Colleagues (please do!) – just be sure to Credit me as follows: “This blog was written by Kyle Russell (of CrystalConcentrics.com & PowerStoneCrystals.com). Please feel free to email him at CrystalConcentrics@gmail.com for more info, or to get his updates.”
Don’t hesitate to forward me any of your contacts’ emails, if you think they might be interested in hearing from me.
(1/31) the Big Apple: juicy (and sometimes rotten)…something for everyone! ~ what started as a trip to New York City, to participate as a Healer at the Awaken Fair turned into so much more – Crystal shopping; Readings at a shop in the Village – and a run in with a client that turned into an important learning opportunity.
(9/28) Anatomy of a Meditation, what is Real? The Power of Metaphor (from Microcosm to Macrocosm) aka “The Real and the Imagined Power of Metaphor” ~ in discussing how I craft a Meditation event, various dichotomies, from having a plan to playing it by ear; the continuity between what you believe in and “what is real.” What’s more important (or can they both be important): the Concrete vs. the Ephemeral; the Medical vs. Metaphysical Model?
JUNE 2014 (2 blogs):
(6/8) How to Work with Crystals ~ the companion blog to the webinar of the same name, it explores the 6 primary ways I’ve discovered, for working with crystals: from presentations to meditations & workshops (live and online), readings, individual work (in person and long distance), things you do on your own, and charity.
(6/29) “I’m Sick and I’m well” (the Gifts and Lessons of Illness) ~ inspired by a bout with illness, I used the opportunity to explore the questions that come up; the crystals I thought of, as useful in the conversation; and so much more: like the “Fluke Factor” & the “Fog Factor;” as well as the independent merits of Medical and Metaphysical therapy.
