New Book! Awakening by Heather Burket

I’m excited to share that I’ve written a book that is now available on Amazon! One of the most challenging things that I found during the Spiritual Awakening process was that I just needed some basic information. I just felt really frustrated at having to hunt down and try to piece everything together. So, I wrote this book with that in mind – to try and help people going through this process have a basic understanding.

Everyone’s spiritual journey is a little different. For me, mine was triggered largely by Kundalini activation by meeting a Twin Flame. I share my experience and how my journey unfolded after that.

Spiritual Awakening is all about remembering who you are. That process involves a lot of inner work. In my book, I share the various healing modalities that I’ve tried.

I hope that this book provides a source of comfort, understanding and hope for anyone undergoing through this process. I know it can be overwhelming – I’ve definitely been there!

So please feel free to check out my book on Amazon and share with anyone that is going through the spiritual awakening process.

Healing Modalities Part 3 – Crystals

I wanted to dedicate a whole blog post to crystals because of their amazing healing abilities. After I was first introduced to crystals, I, like many of you probably reading this post became hooked! I became so enthralled and enchanted by these stunning beauties that I actually began selling them online. They are absolutely amazing and wonderful tools to assist us on this journey. Before we dive into it, it’s a good idea to learn more about energy and our emotions in order to understand how crystals assist with healing.

Emotions and Energy

First, you must think of it in terms of energy. We are energetic beings, and our energy varies from day to day. Our energy is impacted by a variety of factors, but a large majority of our energy is derived from our emotions. So, before we delve into crystals and how they work, we need to first understand our own energy.

Here is a list of some of the factors that affect our energy.

  1. Our own emotions

Once you reach a certain level of emotional understanding you realize that you and you alone are responsible for your own emotions and your own emotional well-being. These emotions are energy that impact our overall energy that we maintain and emit into the environment around us.

So, let’s look at a couple of examples. 1) You wake up and have a full week of meetings, deadlines, and presentations. You may be feeling stressed out, anxious, edgy, or irritated. 2) Day 1 of a two-week vacation – just you and an open expanse of beachfront property. You are probably feeling excited, relaxed, calm, and joyful. So, you can see how our emotional response to situations affect our emotional state and therefore our energy.

  • Home environment

So now let’s talk a little about our home environment. Can you tell a difference in your own emotional state if there’s a lot of clutter versus everything organized and clean?

I know that doesn’t necessarily apply to all people as clutter doesn’t impact some personality types, but there may be other examples for them – such as loud noise – such as television, traffic, etc.

How many of us have walked into a hotel room and just sighed and jumped on the bed to relax? Part of that is because there isn’t a lot of doodads, knick knacks, etc. everywhere impacting the flow of energy.

  • Diet/exercise

This is pretty much a no-brainer. Most of us are aware, at some level, of how we feel after we eat. As you become more self-aware, you may realize that you feel really lethargic and spaced out after eating a heavy meal at lunch (I’m looking at myself here). On the other end of the spectrum – you may go to a healthy retreat where the focus is on fresh, local, non-GMO, organic fruits and vegetables and realize just how amazing the food tastes and how your body feels invigorated after eating. And we all know just how great we feel after exercising.

  • Our focus

Social media, television shows, magazines, books – all these things that we give our attention to have an impact on us. Do you find yourself depressed after seeing the latest post from your friend on yet another vacation? Observe that seemingly flawless model on the front cover of that magazine and begin to feel deflated? Get anxious after reading that latest murder novel and run and double-check your lock on your door before going to bed?

  • Stars/cosmos

And then there are other things that we are impacted by for which we have no control and probably lack awareness of its existence. The planetary alignments, moon phases and incoming energies from the universe all impact us in various ways from being anxious, lethargic, to energetic and unable to sleep as I mentioned in my chapter on Being an Empath.

So, what does all of this have to do with crystals? These are all examples of how we, in our daily lives, are energetically challenged day-in and day-out through a variety of causes.

Crystals are one tool that we have available to us to assist us to become more in alignment with our true selves.

So How do Crystals Work?

As we saw above, we are highly variable in our emotions due to a variety of causes. Crystals, on the other hand, emit energy in a steady state. Their energy is constant, so when we are near these crystals, we start to resonate with their energy. Depending on the sensitivity of the individual – this can vary, but in general, within 3 feet is when we will be in their energetic field and begin to resonate with their energy.

So, by being in their energetic field, we are impacted. There are some things that I believe that can impact this as well – which is belief. Belief systems are a whole topic by themselves, but the power of the mind, the law of attraction – those all come into play here. If you strongly believe that crystals don’t do anything – then as you are a creator being – then that will be true for you. We create our own reality with our thoughts and beliefs. I’m reminded of people that have healed themselves through the powerful belief that they can.

And as you would suspect, different crystals emit a different vibration which is why different crystals are chosen to heal different issues. Some crystals are very high vibration – so you would not choose one of those for anxiety – as one example.

And just like the crystals are different, people are also different in their sensitivity to crystal energies. Some people can feel energy easier than others. And as you raise your own vibration, you will most likely will become more sensitive to energy and therefore to crystals and their energy.

In addition to affecting our energy through their resonance, just having a piece in our environment can instill a sense of happiness and wonder as we appreciate their beauty.

When it comes to working with crystals, it is always recommended to work with one at a time. One great idea is to buy a journal and start to document your experiences with each individual crystal.

Just as we noted above, there are many causes to our emotions and to our energetic state. It is a good idea to be more mindful of how your emotions shift and to be able to identify the cause. This will help you to better understand yourself and to help determine the impacts of the crystals versus the causes listed above.

I thought I would share a few examples of experiences that I’ve had with crystals.

Crystal Experience No. 1 – Azeztulite

My first story is about Azeztulite. Now I had not heard about this crystal before I experienced its energy. I was at the Tucson Gem Show walking around one of the show locations and as I walked by one stand with these white Azeztulite crystals – all my arm hairs stood up on my arm as I walked by. I thought that was strange, and I continued walking. As I walked by a second time, the same thing happened, so I decided that was a sign that I needed to take note, so I stopped to look at these crystals. These were white Azeztulite crystals. So, I decided to take some back to sell. When I got home, I took one and held it in my hand. I could feel the energy pulsating through my hand! It was powerful! If you haven’t heard about this crystal – I encourage you to research them and learn more about them. I believe that these crystals are very powerful and very important to use at this time to help us evolve spiritually.

Crystal Experience No. 2 – Large Quartz Crystal Cluster

For this experience, I was at the Denver Gem Show. There was a very large approximately 6-7-foot-tall clear quartz crystal cluster on display. I had seen this particular specimen before, and I decided to go in front of it and take a closer look. As I stood in front of it, I immediately started to cry! The emotion happened immediately – so I know that it was specifically due to standing in front of the crystal. So, to me, again, this goes to show you just how powerful these crystals can be. I believe that they work on our energy bodies, helping us to release stored up emotions. That was what I believe was happening here. I don’t think we realize just how much we have emotions bottled up inside of us that need to be released. If you ever get a chance, stand in front of a huge quartz cluster, and let it all out!!

Crystal Experience No. 3 – Sentient Plasma Crystal™

So now we are coming to my most recent absolutely exciting story! This is one of my favorite newly discovered crystals! I was at the Denver Gem Show, and I had been looking for some personal pieces for myself. I stopped at one booth and began talking to the salesperson. He ended up showing me some of these extremely clear quartz pieces. If you find very clear quartz, most likely it is from Colombia, and that was the case for this particular piece that I was looking at. This particular type of clear quartz is 93% pure quartz! There were several pieces there, but I picked up one that I was drawn to. I placed it in my left hand, and after a few minutes, I could feel the energy pulsating through my hand. It was incredible!

Later after I got home, I decided to meditate with this crystal. As I held it in my hand, I had a few different experiences. One was that I could feel energy moving in my face – it was a very odd sensation – around my cheeks. Then, I felt as if I could feel various beings around me in my room. In fact, I kept on opening my eyes, because I could feel their presence so strongly. Next, I had this very unusual vision of a crystal cluster – that was actually glowing blue from the inside. Now, I thought to myself that is very odd. And I remember telling a friend about that vision I had with this crystal. A few days I found some information indicating that apparently these crystals are not from Earth but are seeded from an ice planet and formed from water as opposed to heat and pressure. They were described as having a blue glow from the ice when they observed them at the source. How bizarre is that? Below is the article:

Sentient Plasma Quartz Crystal – Nick Newmont

So, this crystal was telling me about itself – which I found pretty cool! I have had a few more amazing experiences with this crystal. I believe it is very powerful and am excited to see what all it can do!

Those are just a few personal stories that I thought I’d share to give you some insight as to what you might expect working with crystals. It does take a while and a lot of self-awareness to be able to discern how the crystals are working with you – but you will get there!

How Do Crystals Fit into Overall Healing?

There are many different healing modalities that I’ve discussed in previous blog posts. Crystals have their place as strong healing tools. But it is also important to understand that there are many healing modalities and having a strong understanding of your inner world should serve as the base. I use crystals every day. But I also use other healing modalities as well. I think crystals have become so popular over the past few years because they are serving to heal us, to connect us with nature, to others, and to elevate our consciousness so that we can evolve and grow spiritually. If you haven’t yet explored the world of crystals, I encourage you to journey into this incredible world of wonder, intrigue, and magic!

Tachyon Chamber

During the spiritual awakening process, a large part of the process is about becoming more self-aware and this desire can lead one to different experiences.

One of the areas that you may be led to – is trying different healing modalities. I’ve tried a lot of different things over the years – traditional therapy, EFT, acupuncture, reiki, crystal bed therapy and even tesla coils – to name just a few. These different modalities are all helpful and serve different purposes in my opinion.

A few months back, I came across some posts by someone that I’d heard of, but really didn’t follow too closely – about this type of healing modality called “Tachyon Chambers.” It sounded interesting to me, so I looked it up online and found the information intriguing, so I found a location that wasn’t too far from me to try and book a session. They told me that they were not accepting appointments at that time, but they would keep me on a mailing list for when it was open.

The explanation of Tachyon energy and the chambers are that tachyons are energy – sub-atomic particles that are the highest frequency that can be combined with matter and that they can’t reach the earth because of the veil. This chamber allows you to receive the energy – which is supposed to increase energy, help start the healing process, assist in emotional, physical and mental well-being and serve as protection from harmful EMF. The effects are supposed to be permanent.

Recently, they emailed me to let me know that they had appointments open and had sessions available the first week of November. So, I signed up. One thing that I’ve learned about through the spiritual awakening process, is that your higher self, guides and your own intuition will help direct you to the experiences and information that are needed for your own growth. So, I go with the flow now if I feel drawn to something. I honestly don’t think too much about it. I invited a friend to see if she wanted to go with me – and she did.

We met a little before the session to catch up, then headed over the location of the chamber, which was in a person’s house. Again, I don’t think too much about these things – I just roll with it, but always be smart and listen to your intuition.

We were to text them once we arrived and then they would come to the side of the house to meet us, so that we wouldn’t disturb those in the chamber before us. So, we brought our stuff with us – blanket, pillow, and some bottles of water. As we made our way around to the back, I was just awestruck at the landscaping in the back yard. I am a plant person, so it was probably more impactful to me than some others, but it was truly a work of art – it was NOT typical landscaping. The entire backyard was taken up by beds that contained dry desert type plants – cacti, etc. I don’t even have the words to describe it, other than magical. There was a path, that wound around the back of the yard, with an elevated flower bed. Once you walked up the steps, you were on a patio that overlooked the garden, and the rolling hills that just happened to be where the sun was currently setting. It was just so peaceful, inspiring, and beautiful. As I looked closer at the details in the flower beds – there were large crystals!! There was one area that had these huge amethyst pieces and then the whole expanse of this same bed had these clear crystals that went across in the middle. Hidden in different places and on the patio were labradorite, kambaba jasper, aquamarine and some quartz pieces. It was just unbelievable. I would have loved to just sit out there and enjoy the peaceful tranquility of the garden.

So I’m just trying to set the scene on just how I knew as soon as I walked in the backyard – that this was where I was supposed to be, what I was supposed to experience.

As we walked in the house, they took us over to where the chamber was. It was in a small front room by the front of the house. When they say “chamber” what I believe that they are really referring to, is that it is contained within a room, there isn’t a box or anything else that it sounds like. Instead, there is a mattress on the floor with 4 poles, a crystal at the top, and some other crystals in the corners and sacred geometry was on the floor.

It’s only for one person at a time, and you need to bring your own blanket/towel and pillow. I had to scoot down underneath the poles so that I wouldn’t knock it out of alignment.

Once I laid down, they put this thing called a resonator on me – which looked like a brass dual megaphone with a crystal in the middle. They then put andara crystals on either side and then placed cintamani crystals on my 3rd eye, throat chakra and my heart chakra.

I was a little anxious – not knowing what to expect, but I tried to just relax and let the experience unfold. I have no idea timewise, but after a few minutes it seems, I felt this warm feeling on the underneath of my body, that was touching the mattress. At this point, I was a little frustrated thinking, ‘is this all that I’m going to feel?’

So, again – no idea, timewise, but at some point, where the resonator was located – near the center of my body  – I began to feel this odd sensation, like my body seemed to be expanding where this resonator was – rounded – like it was growing. It was a very curious feeling.

Then, I started to experience this really odd sensation of losing my sense of physical form – and that started to freak me out. I feel like I could tell I was still laying on the mattress, but the rest of my body – just felt like it had dissolved or something. I just was left with my own internal awareness. I tried to not freak out and tried to just breathe in and out calmly without knocking over the resonator.

Things started to get more interesting…I then began to feel this pressure on my 3rd eye, where the cintamani stone was – almost like someone’s thumb was pressing down, then I started to feel pressure on the sides of my temples. Again, during this – I have no idea the meaning, what is supposed to be happening, is it good, or bad…I am just trying to stay calm at this point.

And finally, the grand finale of the experience, where the resonator was, I actually started to feel like it was very hot, like burning, and I opened up my eye to just check to make sure I wasn’t on fire or anything – lol.

At this point, I was like, okay, this is enough, I have no idea what is happening, but feeling this intense heat is freaking me out. Even though they told me I could yell out at them for their attention, I didn’t want to be a weinie and just tried to telepathically tell them I had had enough and was ready to get out.

I think that worked, and they came back. I have no idea how long I was in there, it was supposed to be 30 min, but it felt longer than that. As they came in, my friend was standing there and I didn’t want to influence her experience, so I just said “that was intense”, as they removed the resonator and crystals off of me and I scooted out.

As I got up, I could tell I was very shaky, jittery, and felt very weird. They could tell that I was ungrounded and told me to sit outside and get grounded in the garden. So, I sat out there on the patio, in front of the labradorite table in the chair and relaxed a bit while the setting sun warmed my body. It felt so good to be out there.

After a while I got more settled internally and didn’t feel jittery anymore, so I went back inside where they did another treatment called a light mandala system. As I shared my experience with them, they wondered if I was clearing energy for the collective – which is why I felt the burning energy.

During my own journey, one of the things that is very notable is that I have a lot of experiences, but I really don’t know the meaning or message and so a lot of times I seek out others to help me with the interpretation. This is one area that I would like to improve upon.

As for the other experiences I had in the chamber, I really don’t know the meaning. I’m just kind of rolling with it, knowing that in time, I will piece everything together.

One thing that I do want to clarify – is that I am extremely sensitive to energy, so my experience was probably way more intense than other people’s. But I’ve also done a lot of things to raise my vibration over the past few years.

I asked my friend what they experienced, and she said that she could feel the energy – go across her forehead and then felt emotional. So, it definitely was helping her heal some emotional wounds.

I felt a bit disconnected afterwards. Talking in a coherent manner was challenging. I had an hour drive home – and that was also a bit challenging. I just felt a little out of it and still somewhat ungrounded. Normally I carry my black tourmaline with me to help with grounding– but of course I left it at home – ugh!

But I could definitely tell that I had more internal energy. My overall energy just felt stronger.

I felt somewhat energized, wasn’t ready to go to sleep that night, but slept pretty well. I woke up energized, but over the next few days, I think that the energy started to take effect and I had bouts of sleeplessness and fatigue while my body processed the energy. One notable thing was that my dog, that sleeps with me, seemed to be getting up and jumping up on one side of the bed and then the other through the night.

I wonder if my shift in energy affected him. One thing that I learned about after my Kundalini activation – is that when you have a large increase in energy, that it can bother you if you are sleeping with someone. For some reason, that increase in energy bothers you to the point where you can’t sleep in the same bed with them. I found that out years later, but thought it was interesting because I would move onto the couch, then the guest bed – I just played musical sleeping locations after my Kundalini was activated. So, I wondered if that was the case here – that my dog was being bothered by my energy or maybe I was bothered by his energy and waking up?

I was also exhausted for the next few days – very groggy. After a few days, I started to feel more balanced, but it definitely had an impact on me. I think that I am still getting adjusted to it. I have a feeling that I won’t be sleeping as much – which is good, because I can always use more time.

I will do a blog in a few months to discuss how this healing modality has impacted me longer term.

If you feel drawn to experience any healing modality, follow your intuition. You will be guided to what you need along your journey.
