The word heart can be used in so many different ways. We talk about putting our heart into our work and wearing our heart on our sleeve. There are people who are warm-hearted and those willing to heal our heartache. Each of us has likely known the pangs of conflict between the head and heart. For all the trials and pains of daily living, many people are taught to distance themselves from their heart in order to avoid folly and failure. The truth is that only in embracing the language of the heart can we truly know who we are and where we are going.
Focusing on the role of crystals in the journey to wholeheartedness, Nicholas Pearson reveals how the heart, as the literal and metaphorical center of one's being, has the power to lead us to greater balance, healing, and happiness. He explores the anatomy of the physical heart and its spiritual symbolism and looks at the heart chakra and how the higher heart chakra is evolving. Offering hands-on exercises and meditations and information on more than 70 gemstones and minerals, each a specific heart-healing stone, the author explains how to build a better relationship with the heart as your spiritual center as well as how to fortify your heart with emotional strength, reclaim your will, and cultivate forgiveness. He shows how your heart is the coordinator of your energy field and is itself a sensory organ and information processor, working to enact healing on many levels.
Providing stone-supported lessons for applying a heart-centered approach in daily life, from expressing yourself to nurturing romantic relationships in a meaningful way, the author shows how the journey to wholeness and wholeheartedness begins with listening for the soft, gentle voice of your heart and embracing the transformational force of inner alchemy known as love.

THE WORD heart has so many meanings in different contexts. We put our heart into our work and wear our heart on our sleeve. We want to get to the heart of the matter, and some of us want to give our heart away. There are broken hearts, icy hearts, and empty hearts; likewise, we ourselves can be heartless, heartsick, or warmhearted. Meals can be hearty, excitement heart-stopping, and loved ones sweethearts. Most of us have met at least one heartthrob in our lives. By now, we all surely get the idea that hearts are important. Western society brings an unusual approach to contending with matters of the heart. Modern approaches to medicine treat our physical heart, while we go about separating our metaphorical heart from our mind and body. Each of us has likely known the pangs of conflict between the head and heart. For all the trials of daily living, many people of today's world are taught to distance themselves from their heart in order to avoid folly and failure. The truth is that only in embracing the language of the heart can we truly know who we are and where we are going. The origins of this book lie in a workshop I taught for the first time in October 2009. Titled simply "Crystals for Healing the Heart," the class covered most of the topics detailed in the following chapters. Over the years, the content grew a little deeper whenever I revisited the course material and presented it again in public. My relationship with crystals has evolved substantially in the years since I first began the
workshop, as has my relationship with my own heart. The journey to wholeness isn't always easy, and it cannot be undertaken without first spending time in the stillness to hear the soft, gentle voice of your heart. As you ready yourself to walk further along the road to know-ing your heart, remember that wholeness is your natural state. As you explore the crystals and exercises outlined in the subsequent chapters, let your heart guide you. There are dozens of different crystals in the following chapters; it isn't probable that you will have or even like all of them. Each stone has its own lessons to teach, just as each heart has its own lessons to learn. I wish you the best of luck on your road to living wholeheartedly.
THE OBJECTIVE IN WRITING THIS BOOK is to bring practical information into the hands of you, the reader. My work with the mineral kingdom has covered pretty much every aspect imaginable, from the academic and scientific to the spiritual and the artistic. While some of my favorite topics are less concrete than others, it has been my concerted mission to make tangible, realistic information available, with easy-to-use exercises that actually offer healing and spiritual growth.
The chapters in this book represent different modules. Each is tailored to a different aspect of healing our hearts. The chapters them-selves build upon each other, with some lessons recursive. Mastering some aspects of healing the heart requires many attempts from different angles. All the gemstones detailed in this volume have been personal my friends, students, and loved ones. friends and helpers on my journey. Trial and error, research, and intuition have culminated in a system that works for me and for many of my friends, students and loved ones.
Each crystal offers its own healing potential, and that potential can manifest differently for different people. No two snowflakes are alike, people like to say, and neither are humans or minerals. It is nearly outcome. Because of this, the minerals you have in your healing toolkit may differ from the ones I've used in my journey; always remember to be empowered to experiment and evolve at your own rate.
Ideally, you will work through the chapters and get to know the stones that are recommended. Spend time in quiet appreciation of the beauty of the mineral kingdom before putting any stone to work. This can open the doorway for your own intuition; it may even invite the voices of your beloved minerals to speak to you and guide you in their use. The exercises in this book are starting points, rather than absolutes. Take them and make them your own.
I have grouped the stones described in the following chapters by the missions that they fulfill. Doing so will, I hope, allow you to become acquainted with different tools for every aspect of healing your heart. It also will enable you to build a relationship with the central theme of each chapter by learning how the mineral kingdom supports each objective from different perspectives. Because of this, a handful of crystals will appear several times throughout this book, as their properties sup-port various aspects of the healing process. You can build a very effective and specialized toolkit for heart healing with fewer stones accordingly.
