I Tried Tiger’s Eye Crystal Therapy to Improve My Singing

Does crystal therapy work for singers? I tried it with Tiger's Eye to find out

This is my last week of crystal therapy! I am now working with Tiger’s Eye, another Solar Plexus stone. If you want to see my other crystals in this month-long project, here are Turquoise, Blue Topaz and Citrine.  Please note: this blog is for entertainment purposes only!

I Tried Citrine Crystal Therapy to Improve My Singing

I tried working with Citrine to see if it would help me improve my singing

Alright, I am now into my 3rd crystal, Citrine! This means I am finished with my Throat Chakra crystals and am now working on my Solar Plexus. If you’re new here and want to know what on earth I’m doing, here’s my initial post on why I’m doing this, here is my post about Turquoise and here is my post about Blue Topaz. Before I get into this, I just want to say that this was a research project for entertainment purposes only. I have not and would never advocate using crystals in place of medicine. If you're a skeptic of crystals or any type of alternative[...]

I Tried Blue Topaz Crystal Therapy to Improve My Singing

Does crystal therapy help vocalists? I tried it with Blue Topaz to find out!

Continuing my crystal therapy for vocalists, this week will be with Blue Topaz. If you want to see why I’m doing this, here is my initial post and here is my week with Turquoise. If you're new to this blog, I am just asking that you keep an open mind about my journey here. I have tried other alternative therapies for singers before so this is nothing new for me! I am not trying to sell anyone on anything. I'm trying to figure out the hype for myself and give you an honest report on my personal results. If nothing else, I hope it will be interesting and/or enter[...]

I Tried Turquoise Crystal Therapy to Improve My Singing

Trying Turquoise Crystal Therapy for Singers

I'm starting out my crystal therapy experiment with Turquoise. If you're curious about how I got into this in the first place, here is my initial post and interview about crystal healing for vocalists! Before we get started, I know there are a lot of strong opinions about crystals, both positive and negative (as is the case for any alternative therapy, to be honest). I went into this with a totally open mind, with an even amount of curiosity, skepticism and optimism. My goal is to be completely impartial and give you honest results as I encountered them. I hope y[...]

Crystal Healing Therapy for Singers – Does It Work?

Does crystal therapy work for singers? An expert weighs in

I'm excited to share this new adventure with you! As you know, I'm a fan of trying new things to see if they will benefit singers. I've always been curious about different kinds of alternative therapy, and today I'm getting into a series on crystal healing. Crystals have been used for various treatments and therapies for at least 6,000 years. Almost every ancient culture has used crystals in some form to do everything from achieving goals to improving health. I want to pause here, though, and tell you that I am not at all advocating that you replace any kind of[...]

Your Root Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started!    Our final chakra is actually known as the first chakra: the Root. You may be wondering, “why did you start at the 7th chakra?” and my answer is that I like going from top to bottom. It’s how I typically do scans in Reiki so it just made sense for me to do it this way. The Root Chakra is associated with the color red and is located around the base of your spine. This chakra deals with a sense of physical safety and our sense of belong[...]

Your Sacral Chakra and Music

Standard intro: If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started!   Your Sacral Chakra is second from the bottom, also called the 2nd chakra. It is located right around the naval or hip area and is known as the chakra for “passion and pleasure.” Your dirty mind is correct, but there are other ways to view passion and pleasure as well. Are you getting a lot of enjoyment out of your art? Are you passionate about your projects? If not, you may want to take a closer look at this chakra. It is[...]

Your Solar Plexus Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started! Your Solar Plexus Chakra is located right under your heart chakra. I used to confuse this one with the Sacral Chakra often. I just remember Sacral as “Second,” which is a weird association but it works for me. The Solar Plexus is the 3rd chakra, sort of in the stomach area or the lower rib cage (also the diaphragm, an important area for vocalists!). It is associated with yellow and its area of expertise is finding your personal power and setting a[...]

Your Heart Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started! Your Heart Chakra is located, surprise surprise, in your heart. It’s also generally within that whole chest/shoulder area. It is the 4th chakra and is associated with the color green. If you’re surprised to hear it’s not red or pink, that’s because the lower chakras (Root and Sacral) take those colors. If you use crystals for your chakras, some people do use a rose quartz for it. I prefer to just stick with green because it’s easier to remem[...]

Your Third Eye Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started! Your Third Eye Chakra is located on your forehead, between your eyes (this is just to locate on a map, but in reality, it’s “inside” you so just think of it in that general area). This is the 6th chakra, right under the Crown. It is associated with the color Indigo, a deep blue. The sounds associated with the Third Eye Chakra The Third Eye Chakra aligns with the key of A. Again, frequency options for tuning this chakra are available but the[...]
