The Crystal Trilogy taught people the basics of crystal energy and how to utilize light and color from the mineral world for healing and the advancement of consciousness. Now, CRYSTALLINE ILLUMINATION, based on the last thirteen years of Ms. Raphaell's crystal research and studies, takes us to the next level where we attain our personal healing experience and consciously redirect our energies to work together to embrace our fullest potential as human beings.

Within her work, Ms. Raphaell incorporates her extensive world travels to sacred planetary locations, integrating her discoveries on ancient civilizations in order to broaden our understanding of human historical time which will, in turn, expand possibilities for the future. Introducing new information on sacred geometry, Katrina delves into the very heart of our earth to understand its core and to explore the geometrical patterns found in nature, and within our solar system.

Introducing the conceptual reality of "The High Human," and the activation of the five subtle bodies, individuals can now seek greater expression of spirit, heart, mind, and physical existence. CRYSTALLINE ILLUMINATION is a practical guide to embracing the potential of a new millennium. Included are five new crystal layouts and color photographs of specific stones. Katrina once again guides us into uncharted territory as she simply explains the practical use grid patterns, high frequency stones, original techniques, sacred geometry and the latest crystal information available on the planet.


Crystal Healing is a healing modality that works directly with the light, color, beauty and perfect geometric forms that the mineral kingdom provides to assist us in balancing all aspects of our being. It is an advanced healing art that has the capacity to influence the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Specific stones are placed upon the chakras, or spiritual energy centers, of the body. Since each one of the chakras has an associated color, generally speaking the crystals or stones reflecting that specific color would be placed upon these physical nerve plexus points. Bearing in mind that each stone has its own specific healing properties, each stone that is placed upon the body serves its own purpose. As the chakras are activated and the aura (or electro-magnetic force field surrounding the body) is infused with the light reflecting off of the stones it becomes possible to access much more subtle levels of consciousness and being. With the proper Crystal Healing Therapeutics applied, deep personal sources of healing energy can be accessed, as understanding and knowledge about oneself surfaces from inner sanctums of knowing. From this foundation of personal empowerment mental awareness is elevated, the emotional body becomes hypersensitive, and the memory veils are lifted. The corresponding mental, emotional and spiritual causes of physical disease can be discovered and attended to. In this way the power of the crystals and stones can be harnessed and their energies used to create healing, balance and upliftment.
