This is not to say that the book is not worthy in its own right -- it is very good for its niche.
Chapter 1 - Practicing: Mastering the Essentials
She encourages people to remember that there is no exact way to work with crystals and that direct communication with them is the best way to learn how to work with them. Chapter 1 begins with how to tune to crystals, cleansing and charging them.
Inspiring versus Programming
Dolfyn says she regrets the role she played in popularizing the word programming when it comes to crystals. People seem to have misunderstood the word and feel it means a cold use of the crystal. She started using the word inspiring to lessen the negative connotation. She gives exercises on how to inspire the crystal for a certain use after you've tuned into it first.
Chapter 2 - Expanding Beyond the Basics
Besides the sections that cover crystal and gemstone meanings, Dolfyn's meditations and guided spiritual journeys are the best parts of the book in my opinion. She has a gift with this. In this chapter, she first gives tips on meditation techniques. The first guided meditation is a journey to get in touch with crystal spirits. She then goes on to discuss how crystals are used in healing, protection, projecting energy and prayer.
Chapter 3 - Deepening: Extending Your Reach
In this chapter, she helps readers get in touch with teaching spirits that reside in some crystals with a guided meditation called Seeing the Teaching Crystal Spirit. She gives techniques to learn your own deeper history of past lives.
Chapters 4 and 5- Spiritual Values of Crystals and Gemstones
These chapters explain the healing and metaphysical properties of crystals and gemstones. Not only does she explain the properties of certain stones but also different types of crystals such as those that are double terminated, channeling, phantom and more. In many of the entries, there is a poem written as if through the voice of the crystal itself.
There is also a short list of stones that may not have been too familiar at the time the book was published. The reference chart is a sort of index. The stones are divided into sections based on the metaphysical aspects such as healing, communication, spirit, grounding and empowering. Even though this is one of the earliest resources for crystal healing, Dolfyn has left a enduring legacy of information for crystal enthusiasts.
