Well this is a first!!
Never have I written a blog about myself before!
My Name is Kate and as you may know by now, I’m Sue’s daughter.
I am a qualified Beauty and Complementary Therapist and have been Self Employed for the past 17 years offering Beauty Treatments,
Crystal Therapies, Healing and Meditation.
When I finished college I worked in a established Beauty Salon before becoming Self Employed and joining up with Sue (my mum).
A Big scary step but one that I felt was so right and meant that I would be working with Crystals and providing the treatments that I could and was eager to do!
This was in 2001. As Sue has said in her blog, we opened
Essential Completely Health & Beauty Centre. Our aim was to be able to provide treatments to treat the body as a whole.. Mind, Body & Soul.
We provided a wide array of therapies and finally felt like we had our dream!
One thing we had to do first was make sure the energy in the building was right and so Crystals were in every room to create a Energised Circuit.
Every treatment room had its own selection of crystals and it’s own Amethyst Cave, this was a must for us as from a energy point of view when you are offering treatments and engaging with a client either by a Talking therapy or by Hands on treatments you are allowing your client to release any negative energy in the form of stress and emotional trauma.
A treatment room is often a place where people can feel safe and let go of their problems however big or small and so from a energy point of view you need to keep the room positive and balanced.
An Amethyst Cave is excellent for the job and can cope with the energy exchange needed.
Amethyst is known as the ‘Master Healer’ and a excellent all round healing crystal. By having Amethyst Caves in our treatment rooms we are providing a energy where the Amethyst takes in the negative energy that’s been released through treatment and transmutes it into a positive energy.
The treatment room stays balanced with a positive and vibrant healing energy built up and leaving a nice and calm healing energy for every client.
Something that was a must for us with the work we were doing.
I basically grew up surrounded by crystals and with the work that my mum does, it was impossible not to be involved! I mean how could you not fall in love with crystals!!
Whilst mum (Sue) started working from home with crystals and
Hands on Healing she also began her development groups to help people have more of an understanding and to learn and self develop.
I sat in her development groups from the age of 16 to learn more in depth about everything that I had been fascinated in for such a long time and was desperate to know more, such as.. Meditation, Hands on Healing, Spiritual Development.. etc
Sue also held weekend retreats where we used to go away on a weekend with other people that also sat in Sues Development groups!
It was so much fun, learning and enjoying the benefit of being away from all the hustle and bustle of life with lovely people.
Up early for Meditation to start our day, followed by going out and experiencing different energies within the land and area.
Gorgeous cooked food and lots of laughs and games to unwind.
The memories will stay with me forever!
It was an amazing time and I feel so lucky to have had such a positive influence at that age.
Growing isn’t easy as we all know with so many different paths to take and lots of influences around you. I feel so grateful that I had the understanding of how to look at things differently and see things with the understanding of energy and how energy and the energy we are surrounded by effects us.
I would love Meditation and Energy awareness to be included in every school curriculum, it would only take a few moments at the beginning of the day to change a lot of lives. So many children would benefit greatly from it and in turn make for a more positive and success day.
Anyway.. that’s going off topic! I could go on forever on that subject!
So sue and I worked together for many years at “Essentials “ providing Crystal therapy treatments, Healing, Meditation, Development groups, workshops, demonstration days as well as providing Beauty Treatments.
This is the time that Sue’s Crystal Enhancement work became more frequent and with bigger jobs meant more crystals, so we worked on it together.
Sue’s other side of the business is Crystal Enhancements, this is where she comes to your home or workplace and assesses the energy inside and outside the building.
There are many factors as to why there may be a energy imbalance inside a home, from a Architectural point of view, Land Energy and outside factors such as Electromagnetic energy which has become a big problem more recently. As you can imagine it’s a big job and entails a lot of work so I used go with Sue and help wherever needed.
Including driving a big white van around the country full of Crystals many times!🙈
Sue has always sourced her own crystals and always wants to hand pick them to ensure the quality and energy value is right for what is required. I used to love those trips!! Being surrounded by the most magnificent crystals that you could only ever dream of owning!!
I learnt a lot during those trips as selecting the right crystals required being able to sense energy, so crystal shopping whilst learning was my new love!
It was my job on a Crystal Enhancement job to energetically cleanse the area we were placing crystals and to carry the crystals into place! Sue was the one to make sure the energy circuit worked and all crystals blended together to ensure that the complete circuit would achieve what’s needed. I loved being part of these jobs, learning, working with mum and seeing the positive changes that the Crystals bring to people's lives.
I was fully involved with both the Beauty side and the Crystal and Meditation side, I loved it although it was a very busy time!
During this time i had my daughter and so i took a step back from everything for a while, obviously my working hours changed and being with my daughter was what was important.
With Sue’s work taking her more and more around the country it was time to move on, it was impossible for her to balance her work life with being away and co running Essentials.
It was a sad time to be parting as we had worked together daily for so many years along with a team of staff, but at the same time we both knew it was right for us to do.
Sometimes life changes and you don’t always see the positive reason why at the time.
I moved into a local building and worked from a room I set up to be my own, it took some adjusting as we had been used to everything being decorated and energised just how we wanted it, but by adding my own touches with paint, decor and of course Crystals!! I’m happy to say I made it a lovely place to come for treatments.
As always my Amethyst Cave came with me!
Life was very busy juggling being a mum and working self employed!!
I ended up doing more beauty treatments as that was what was more prominent at the time and the crystals became something I used more at home. I have always continued to use crystals and practice everything I had learnt and I have always helped with my mums business and so my passion and involvement in crystals has never left me.
To be honest I think that’s actually impossible! Lol
Crystals become part of you and who you are, I would never be without my crystals!!
Fast forward a few more years and I’m so happy to say that working with Crystals, Healing and Meditation has become part of my everyday work life again!
I now work from my own purpose built building that I have created to be a place of healing. It has all my beautiful Crystals in, I have specific Crystals to work with the energy of the building and Crystals to help keep the energy of the room cleansed and empowered with a healing vibration. My favourite Crystal has to be my new bigger Amethyst Cave! Such an amazing and stunning piece. The healing energy that this gives off is incredible and I would be lost without it!
My journey to Crystal Prescriptions kind of just happened.
In a way I created myself a job and now they can’t get rid of me! HAHA!
(website design, social media management, Artwork) and anything else that needs doing! Post and packaging etc.. kind of a bit of everything!
To be honest, technology really isn’t my thing either, but Iv learn a hell of a lot in the past 6 months!! Still lots to learn but I’m getting there and loving it! Even if I still don’t understand all of it!🙈😂
On more of a serious note I absolutely love the fact that I am now fully on board with Crystal Prescriptions, working with Sue and Nigel is great and when you have so much passion for something it just makes it even more fun and exciting!!
Sue spends a lot of time ensuring each Crystal Prescription is chosen with the right crystals so the energetic blend is correct for the intention. These are crystal prescriptions that Sue has used for many years and had a lot of success with patients getting great results and benefit from them. If you haven’t read Sue’s blog yet do that next. It’s a interesting read about what it is Sue does and how she started out.
With everything being online nowadays Sue felt it was time to join in and be able to share her knowledge and experience with you all, sharing Crystal Prescriptions and making them available to everyone is such a great feeling and the response we have had so far has been amazing.
Your comments and kind words really do mean a lot to us and we appreciate the time you go to to leave us a review.
We hope you are enjoying the benefits of your crystals if you have made a purchase and don’t forget to check out our Blog about ‘getting to know your crystals’ it’s got some great tips for newbies!
