C4H - Holistic Healing and Design

My Journey into Healing

The Origin of the Name

C4H (Crystals for Healing) is the alias that I have used and still use on various health-related Internet groups. Over the last few years C4H has become my work concept as I use crystals for healing in many different ways. Crystal energies are utilised in the Aura-Soma® system and they form part of the jewellery that I create.

The Beginning — Reiki

In summer 1997 a German friend recommended that I should read the Celestine Prophecies by James Redfield. I had no idea then that this would become the starting point of my spiritual journey. A year later I heard about Reiki and was initiated into the first Reiki grade at the end of October 1998. This weekend course made me feel very enthusiastic. I could feel strong energies flowing through me as I gave my first Reiki treatments. How strong the excitement was! It was then that I decided to become a Reiki Master. Some found this strange, too fast and had many objectives. But I wanted to pass onto others the gift that had been given to me. My guides supported me on my way; they encouraged me to keep working on my goal - Empowering People to Heal Themselves on All Levels.

My journey through the Reiki grades taught me many valuable, sometimes painful lessons. These lessons were important for me in order to learn compassion and understanding. On this journey many tools (I like to call the gifts from above) were presented to me. On the Reiki 1 course I started to become interested in crystals. On my Reiki 2 course I learned about Louise Hay, her work and the power of positive affirmations. Louise Hay's concepts are particularly useful in Inner Child work.

In summer 1999 I had to undergo major surgery. The crystals, Reiki, positive affirmations and the acupuncture treatments that I had received on a weekly base prior to the operation gave me the energy to pull through this health crisis successfully. Our four-legged companion Bonnie gave me a lot of strength, too. Sadly for us she returned to spirit two weeks after I was discharged from hospital. I was devastated - I had encountered too many losses in a very short time. I was on the verge of giving up my spiritual journey and my goals. At that time gentle Ben came into our life, a little GSD x Border Collie puppy. Ben lifted my spirits, which gave me the positive inspiration to continue on my path. In December 1999 I was initiated as a Reiki Master by Keith Beasley. A few months later I trained with Fiona McCallion in Reiki Ryoho 1 and 2.

Soon after my initiation in the Reiki Master grade I began to attune friends and family to Reiki 1 and later to Reiki 2. In November 2000 I began to offer Reiki courses to the general public. The gifts that had been presented to me during my studies became useful for my students, too. Louise Hay's Affirmations and Bach Flower Remedies proved to be valuable gifts for those who have to deal with Inner Child issues that often surface after the initiation into Reiki 2.

Continued Journey — Bach Flower Remedies and Louise Hay Training

In May 2000 I began to learn about the Bach Flower Remedies on a Bach Centre approved Level 1 course. This was followed by a BFR Level 2 course in September 2000 and studies at the University of Hertfordshire from October 2000 to January 2001. In April 2001 I became a Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner (BFRP).

In summer 2000 I studied Louise Hays techniques on a Louise Hay certified Teacher Training Course in Birmingham, England. This course was taught by Patricia Crane and is now called Healing Lives, Achieving Dreams Teacher Training Course.

A life changing step on the way — 2 years of Crystal and Spiritual Healing training with VHF

In October 2000 I started on a two year diploma course in Crystal and Spiritual Healing with VHF in London. This course was very challenging. Deep rooted issues surfaced as a result of the Crystal and Spiritual Healing treatments that I regularly received from my co-students during the course. This clearing-up process was necessary to become a clearer channel. The course finished in December 2002. I am currently in the process of writing my research papers to obtain a diploma in both Crystal and Spiritual Healing.

During the first year of training with VHF I became interested in designing and creating crystal jewellery. I started to create bracelets for myself as the commonly available Power Bracelets were too big and heavy for me. I soon felt that my bracelets could wonderfully complement my crystal healing treatments. So I started to design bracelets for my clients. Each crystal bracelet or jewellery item is like a small Mandala created specifically for the needs of the person wearing it.

Bringing it All Together — Aura-Soma

A weekend on colour healing in January 2001 formed part of the Crystal and Spiritual Healing course. On this weekend I became interested in Aura-Soma®. Shortly afterwards I found an Aura-Soma® consultant in my area and had sessions with her on a regular basis. I was amazed by the accuracy of the readings and the power of the Aura-Soma® system. In February 2002 I participated on an Aura-Soma® Foundation Level Course and in February 2003 I attended an Aura-Soma® Intermediate Level course and thereupon became an ASIACT trained Aura-Soma® consultant. In July 2003 I received training on an Aura-Soma® Advanced Level course at Dev Aura in Tetford.
What fascinates me most about Aura-Soma® is the fact that it integrates all my previously learned skills and many more. There are connections to crystals, Aromatherapy, Numerology, the Kabbalah and the Tree of Life, Astrology, Tarot and many more. There are so many new paths to explore. A continued learning process that never ends.

All the gifts and techniques available to me are united into one single concept.
They work together to support my students, my clients and myself to heal ourselves on the various subtle energy levels.

Credits — Thank You for Supporting me

My spiritual journey would not have been possible in this form without the help of my husband Tarseem and our beloved four-legged children: Bonnie, Mikesch, Ben, Lea, Jacob, Rosie, Rana, Candy, Nirmla and Yonah. I would like to thank them here for their constant love and support.

Tarseem is an AoR trained Reflexologist. He has also received training and attunements in Reiki 1 and 2 and BABCT approved training in Indian Head Massage. He has an interest in most complementary therapies, like Bach Flower Remedies, Ayurveda, Crystal Healing and Aura-Soma, and a special interest in crystals - both in their healing properties and their mineralogical beauty.
