"Crystal Healing for the Heart by Nicholas Pearson is a marvel. Why? Because from the core, empowering information down to the practical format of the book, it brings together head and heart, as few books ever manage. We could not have a finer guide in this, during a time when we desperately need it. Thank you always, Nicholas!" * Marilyn Twintreess, coauthor of Stones Alive! Vols. 1-3 and Elemental Birth Imprints * "Nicholas Pearson is one of the best things to happen to crystal healing in the past 10 years. His books are always well researched, intelligent, fascinating, and perceptive--filled with the kind of knowledge and practical wisdom that only manifests when someone has dedicated their life to the study and mastery of their field, their craft. Yet his books are always flowing and fun to read as well--quite an achievement--and Crystal Healing for the Heart is no exception. It's the book that many people have been waiting for, and it addresses many of the most important life issues that people have: how to really love ourselves, how to love and be loved in this mixed-up modern world of ours. People need to know that Nicholas is the real deal, and I hope he will be around for many years to come, sharing his insight, sharing his wisdom." * Brian Parsons, author of the Energy Boundaries series * "The chapters of Crystal Healing for the Heart are well laid out--packed with lots of information--in an easy-to-read and clear style. The way each facet of the heart and the heart energy is dealt with makes it memorable and reminds people that crystal healing is a holistic approach to well-being. The core of any dis-ease state is stress that the being is unable to process. The holistic heart is therefore a key player in easing stress and encouraging the `letting go' of what is no longer needed. The techniques and suggestions in this book will go a long way to move each of us toward better holistic health and well-being. Thank you, Nicholas!" * Sue Lilly, author of The Crystal Healing Bible *
