The American Indian: Secr. There appears to be some different spellings of crystal names than I am used to but this could be because the book was originally written in French and Bourgault writes he teaches in Quebec, Canada so perhaps he is French Canadian. Examples of crystal names spelled different from what I am used to are chrysocoll and cornelian, I would know these are chrysocolla and carnelian.

The American Indian: Secrets of Crystal Healing. However, this book is a great overview of American Indian crystal healing. 0572022638 (ISBN13: 9780572022631). I went in completely ignorant on the topic and learned very much, but a small amount of previous knowledge would have been helpful because I still have no idea what a spiritual plexus is, which was mentioned multiple times in the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a thorough introduction to various aspects of using crystals and to anyone who already practices with crystals and wants a book for reference from an experienced healer.

The Ultimate Book For Crystal Healing. Published by Thriftbooks. I have read a few books on crystal healing, but I was very sceptacle about putting crystals on my chakras, especially after Edgar Cayce (the Sleeping Prophet) warned people against this saying that it's dangerous.

American indian secrets of crystal healing. American indian secrets of crystal healing. This book could not and does not aim to provide a complete and adequate training in crystal therapy. For that, it is essential that the teaching is given verbally and the practice supervised. I had travelled among the American Indians, but while I learned a lot through my contact with the Autochthones on the reserves and in the city centres, it was not specifically the elders that I was meeting. I had also noticed several social problems, one of which was alcoholism - an area of discussion both friendly and explosive.

I ordered this book out of curiosity. I does not appear from Luc Bourgault's prologue he is Native American but he writes he has studied with some of them. Realize Native American covers a lot of nations and they all have their own ways so one should not view this book as some kind of panacea of Native American uses of crystals regardless of the fact Bourgault may have learned from some of them. Also Bourgault is using some of the knowledge he has acquired so this is not purely Native American teachings. He uses the 7 chakra system brought to the West by the Theosophists in the section where he discuses colors of stones and their relationships to the chakras. If I were to ask a Native American if this is part of their traditional beliefs I have the feeling the answer would be no. I'm sure they have their own beliefs about the energy system in the body and in nature.

There appears to be some different spellings of crystal names than I am used to but this could be because the book was originally written in French and Bourgault writes he teaches in Quebec, Canada so perhaps he is French Canadian. Examples of crystal names spelled different from what I am used to are chrysocoll and cornelian, I would know these are chrysocolla and carnelian. This is not to imply Bourgault's work doesn't have it's uses, but be aware the title of the book implies this is Native American "secrets" of crystal healing and I have my doubts about that claim. I think I would have been more comfortable is he simply put it forward as a book on crystal healing and not put it out as Native American even if he has learned some things from some Native Americans. But to be fair this could be marketing on the part of the publisher and the book was copyrighted in French in 1992 so it's over 20 years old and people have become more sensitive to treading on other people's cultures in the ensuing years.

The book is a good one for beginners and is an easy relatively short read. I enjoyed the info though not being Native American or having been taught anything on crystals by one I am not sure how close this is to their teachings. I would have liked a bit more explanation of various crystal formations (particularly for quartz) and how to use them or whether certain formations should be used. One big positive of the book is Bourgault's emphasis on self empowerment, respect for the natural world and working on oneself. From the Introduction:

To begin with, the first crystal which you work, which you clean, polish and purify, must be yourself. It is an illusion to think you can work effectively with crystals if you have not already started the work on yourself. You must realize that this work you do on yourself is the most important work of all.

Even if you have success, power or material well-being, you will have to leave it all behind when you die and, and if you have not worked on yourself, you will be back to square one. You will have accomplished nothing despite all your wealth.

I appreciate he writes about taking care of oneself and devoting one day of a week to personal enjoyment. So often we forget to heal the healer. He also writes about cleansing of your space and your crystals and I do feel this is important. Overall I enjoyed the book and can give it a recommend as a book by a man who has worked with crystals and does appear to respect and love crystals and mother nature.

For those interested in crystals and other esoteric topics, this book is certainly worth reading. I say that because it provides another cultural view on the subject, not simply regurgitating the same old New Age popular discussions copied all over the Internet.

The write has an interesting background an personal story. He presents most topics from the Native American perspective. However, his topics of discussion are not limited to that I believe. For example it was hard for me to believe that his discussion on the human electromagnetic fields originated from Native American traditions, but I don't know that as a fact.

In any event, for those seriously interested in crystals and such, the book is likely a valuable read simply to have a broader understanding of the cultural views; certainly at the cost of this paperback.

A different approach to what I have read before about crystals. Informative,quick read. The color of stones and crystal chapter was good,as well as the planet symbolism to crystals.

Having studied in this area for over 40 years, I have to say that I am very impressed with this book. This is one of the very few books on using minerals as healing devices which sounds like it is coming from a solid tradition and real practical experience instead of lot of "New Age" airy fairy stuff and nonsense.

It is the first book I have read which took the misuse of this modality seriously, and it is worth the price for that fact alone. Native Americans have not shared their wisdom as freely with us "white brothers" as I wish they would, but I certainly don't blame them, considering how badly western society has shafted them. That they share anything at all is a tribute to their spiritual superiority, and should be deeply respected and shown proper gratitude.

I haven't had a chance to work on the material in great detail, but what I have used so far is very helpful, and I am grateful to the author and his teachers.

A great book highly recommended.

Reading this book now and very pleased to have it. As any other book there are parts which include some negativity ( similar to a Catholic guilt trip ) however we take the most positive part of all things and this applicable to the healing of self and other beings. Beautiful spirit of the Author Luc Borgault shines a light concern about how Crystal healing is used and that power in the wrong hands can harm not help. I agree with him. I advise any light worker/healer/energy shifter to read this enlightening book. Thank you Luc Borgault.

this book is incredible; it is just incredible. I love it. Best book about crystals that I have come across and so deeply rooted in the spirit of going deep within. It's about how to use a crystal, not how a crystal will solve and do everything. It is realistic and talks about you being the ultimate crystal. I am SO happy I bought this book. I very much resonate with the sacred respect and true journey within that the author so easily describes. His energy definitely comes through as you read; it is quiet and peaceful as well as deeply grounded and compassionate. GREAT BOOK!

take what you want from it, add it to your studies. Very well written i believe, for beginners or people waning to learn specifically about that type of crystal healing. like the others i dont agree with EVERYTHING he writes but honestly who does agree with every fact from every book. So if your reading negative reviews, throw that out of your mind and buy the book its well worth it and you cannot go by others opinions. You will get something out of this whether you fully agree or not! I say BUY it!!!!
This book is basically based on a lie, the author studied under a woman who claims to be Native but is actually of Iris descent and has caused quite a stir with the LAKOTA family she stole her name from. We Native folks do a great many things with stones and hold them as sacred, but as a healer i found this book crap.
