An "Ask Genn" Crystal Reading is a personal reading from the Crystal People, like a tarot reading via living crystal.

Ask Genn crystal readingIn an "Ask Genn" crystal reading, rather than using a tarot deck to determine the energies presented for your reading, I use the crystal chosen for you and read its unique characteristics.

While this may seem a little confusing at first blush, it actually is pretty straight-forward. I will detail the process further in the post.

In a nutshell, I enter a meditative state and connect with the crystal that was selected (more on the selection process coming up).

I make note of special characteristics such as type (e.g. Channeler), surface features (e.g. Record Keepers) and other defining features (e.g. Keys, Barnacles, Bridges, etc) present on the crystal.

I list and diagram these characteristics on the front of a 5.5" x 8.5" card.

This way, when you get the crystal home, you will know (for example): What are Barnacles? Where is the Key? Where are the Record Keepers? (etc)

Finally, I describe the characteristics in detail and add any messages received.

Read on to flesh out the details of this "Ask Genn" process.

All of the pictures you see in this post are from when I was hand-writing the "Ask Genn" reading. The cards you see are also smaller in size than what you receive currently.

Now I compose your reading in an Office document. Printed on standard sized card stock, it creates a 5.5" wide x 8.5" tall card.

By doing the reading in Office, I am able to include more information and it is more legible and easier to read.

Just as in the photos, there are drawings of the crystal from different angles. Diagrams point out the special features (characteristics and configurations).

These drawings and labels are not computerized, but are done by hand. They look the same as the readings in the photographs (with different crystals, of course).

I make detailed diagrams so you will know where each configuration is on your particular crystal when you get it home.

If you aren't sure where the configurations are on your crystal, there is a picture pointing out each, easily diagrammed.

By tuning into your energy signature, I ask the Crystal People to lead me to the crystal that is appropriate for you at this time.

The crystal selection itself is based on guidance I receive from the Crystal People as I look for your crystal.


Ask Genn crystal readingJust like with tarot readings, a crystal reading can help in different areas.

First, we'll start with what it isn't. An "Ask Genn" crystal reading isn't a look into the future, it doesn't foretell of deeds by a dark-haired maiden or give a timeline on which to gauge upcoming events.

An "Ask Genn" reading can give you insight to energies which might be presenting in your current situation.

Likewise, it might also show how circumstances in your past (or past lives) might be playing into your daily life or way of being.

Your reading might also suggest ways to tweak your current way of doing things to create a different outcome to an issue.

The crystal that presents for your reading often echos the energies with which you are currently working and might give you ideas on how to work more efficiently with these energies.


Ask Genn crystal readingFor instance, if your issue involves a friend, co-worker or loved-one, your crystal might present with a Bridge to help you find connection and perspective in your current situation.

If you are dealing with traumas or challenges, Rainbows and Mirror Fractures might be present in your reading to remind you of the beauty and depth our challenges bring.

If you have issue with self esteem or perfectionism, an Empathic crystal might present to remind you to love yourself unconditionally, "chips and all".

These are just a few of the hundreds of possibilities that might present in your "Ask Genn" crystal reading.

Often there are many characteristics which present to help you shift your perspective on a certain situation.

Once you have your reading and see the possibilities, you can work with your crystal to achieve a better flow of energy for a more desirable outcome.

An "Ask Genn" crystal reading is more hands-on than a traditional tarot reading because you have the crystal to work with long after the reading has concluded.

In this way, you aren't simply receiving a reading of the current energies, you are also given a way to work with and shift those energies to create a positive change.

The "Ask Genn" crystal reading is an incredibly specialized offer.

It is a personal reading from the Crystal People.

As I mentioned, similar to a Tarot reading, you are welcome to mention concerns or energies with which you may be working.

Conversely, if you don’t have a specific concern, you may choose to simply have the Crystal People give you whatever message presents.

If you decide to mention concerns or energies, you can enter them in the comments section of the shopping cart on checkout or send me a separate email.

I have had incredible feedback on the readings.

The Crystal People are very good at getting the message through to me that you need at the time.

It’s sometimes uncanny and always super fun!


Your part is done. I will find the crystal, do the reading and pack it all up and ship it to you.


Ask Genn crystal readingIf you have had an "Ask Genn" crystal reading in the past, I would LOVE to hear from you in the comments section!

It might help others to understand what it is like to receive a reading in this manner.

Did you choose your own crystal, or have the Crystal People choose for you?

Was the reading based on a specific question or concern for which you were looking for clarity or did you choose whatever presented?

Did the reading apply to your situation?

Was it accurate?

Would you recommend an "Ask Genn" crystal reading to a friend?

I always love to hear the stories about how the reading was specifically accurate for you and your situation.

Thanks in advance for sharing with us!
