Crystal Healing is a relatively new modality that is not yet taken seriously by the mainstream helping professions, even though many may be displaying crystals openly in their waiting rooms and secretly carrying stones in their pockets! This fact alone could stand as an excellent reason for building Crystal Healer certification courses, but there are several other motivating factors as well.
First let’s discuss some of the various forms of certification that are available. One kind of certificate, is a certificate of participation. This indicates that you showed up for a course, and participated in a set of exercises, as designed by the teacher. Such a certificate does not comment on whether a particular skill level was attained, but does indicate a level of commitment, openness to learning from a teacher, and the willingness to invest time and energy to skill development.
Another type of certification is obtained by attaining a passing grade in response to a quiz or exam. Such a certificate signifies a level of theoretical knowledge and is very valuable, because theoretical understanding is a precursor to practical skills. While many people have test anxiety, causing them to avoid such challenges, we cannot deny that passing a test gives us a sense of self-respect and confidence that cannot be attained in any other way. A certificate denoting knowledge is essential to developing professional confidence.

The third type of certification is the certificate that signifies a qualification as a Crystal Healer. To earn such a certificate, you need to demonstrate proficiency in both theoretical and practical skills. Such certification puts Crystal Healers in better alignment with our society’s expectations for professional standards. If we want Crystal Healing to become a recognized profession, it is in our interests to create courses with the gravitas of a true professional training.
