Today I want to talk to you about "Crystal Healer Certifications" and I know in advance that some people won't like this post, specially the creators of these courses. But I'm writing this article for you with the best of intentions to make YOU aware of things.
Holistic medicine is a wonderful thing! I'm 100% a believer and advocate of it. Yet an explosion of "holistic businesses" has grown tremendously for the past few years. The same thing have happened with crystals! The "Crystal business" has grown tremendously. Now you have 18-20 years old kids selling crystals calling themselves "Certified Crystal healers." You may also follow many other accounts (such as mine) that sell and talk about crystals and you think we may be an authority in the field. And many of us are, or at least we have put the work and learn quite a bit about the mineral kingdom, do our research and work for MANY years with crystals, even before starting to sell them or make a business out of it.
First of all, I would like to say that there is absolutely nothing that I know myself, that you cannot learn on your own and know too, without a need for "certifications." Now, having said this, I want to tell you my experience when researching on this subject.
1- I decided to do some research and one of my first findings, was a website/school looking very legit online that asked me just to sign up with my email, to access the "Crystal healing course program" as soon as I entered my email on their website form, I received two emails. One email containing a PDF document with the course, and another email with my "Crystal Healer Certification." I could not believe that without even having taken a peak at the " training course" I got a pretty looking "certification" sent to me? Come on!! That is just beyond crazy, period.
2- I continued my search and I went to a much better well known school (online) and their course was a lot more detailed, extensive and well put together for what I could see. Great, this looks better I told myself. However, one thing I noticed was the claims they made about their "school" making it sound a lot more "professional." How do they do this? by saying for example that they are a "member" of such and such organization and their course is "accredited" by the prestigious "holistic practitioners association" just to give an example.
This made me be very curious immediately wanting to k now more about these "prominent organizations" that provides accreditation online schools and courses.
What I found was incredibly disappointing because when you do a bit of research, you will realize that those same "professional associations" are a bunch of nonsense too!
What do I mean by this? Well, that particular "holistic practitioners association" that is so well known, is just a website that someone like you or me can create. They can register it under a professional sounding, catchy name such as "the national holistic healing center of America&q
