Silent and yet still able to communicate, stones deliver their messages wordlessly, reaching out to us, touching our hearts to be understood by our whole being. When presented as gifts, they are a beautiful way of expressing good wishes, of offering greetings or congratulations – and they can help those wishes come true. Crystal gifts and greetings are messages of a very special kind: crystals bring strength and joy; they help us to recuperate from illness, are a source of protection and power, and promote trust and bring comfort. Crystals express affection in their own way, preserving the memory of special moments and events through their very existence. Stones are more than mere words. We can see, touch and feel them, we can carry them or hold them in our hands; they make good companions in both good and bad times. They are enduring gifts, patient, always there for us, ready when we need them. It is time to give them – and us – the chance to speak…
Michael Gienger (1964-2014) was one of Europe’s most respected experts on crystals and their uses, a field in which he had been active since 1988. He started collecting minerals in 1972, and in 1985 a successful self-treatment with healing crystals inspired him to pursue further training as an alternative healing practitioner. He was trained in shiatsu and completed a two-year apprentice in shamanic healing. He went on to author more than 20 publications, a number of which have become standard works in their field and have been translated into 11 languages.
