Crystal Awareness Institute

DaEl Walker founded the Crystal Awareness Institute in 1975. It's main focus is research in energy, healing, and consciousness. It began by looking at crystal energy. "I went to a Psychic Fair in San Francisco in January of 1975, just 3 days after my birthday. I had a reading by a man which was so accurate I made a reservation to do a full life reading a month later at his home. In his reading he told me much about myself. He said I had a significant amount of psychic and healing powers. He suggested that I take training to learn how to do this. In his study, on a shelf, I saw some crystals. I asked him what they were for and he said they would give me energy. I asked him where I could get some for myself and he directed me to a rock shop where I purchased my first crystal.

I could feel an energy pulsing in the crystal and this made me very curious. What was this phenomenon? I was playing city softball at this time, and I slid into a base and hurt my knee, slightly. Without thinking about it I pulled my crystal from my pocket and placed it on my knee. The crystal got hot, my knee got hot, and the pain went away. I was really intrigued by this but I had a game to play so I put the information in the back of my mind. Later I banged by elbow against a fence while catching a foul ball and automatically pulled my crystal out of my pocket. This time, I had an idea. I put the crystal back in my pocket and put my bare hand against the pain. Nothing happened. I took out the crystal and placed it on my elbow. The crystal got hot, the elbow got hot, and the pain went away. Now I was really interested. There was no doubt the crystal was the factor in the healing.

I began to experiment with my family, my friends, and myself. I got the same results. But how does this work? I was living in Livermore, California at this time. There is a famous nuclear facility nearby, the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. My next door neighbor was a physicist who worked at the Lab. So I went next door, told him what had been happening and asked him how does this work? He said, "You can't do that. Quartz has piezoelectric properties. If you squeeze it, it will generate an electrical current. If you put energy into it, it will swell. If use an alternating current, it will oscillate and can be used to send radio signals. It will transform energy from one form to another, like solar cells change sunlight into electricity. But you can't use it for healing."

I have a philosophy. If you tell me I can not do something after I have done it, I have difficulty in believing what you say.

"Didn't you say you had a back pain which treatment was not helping?" "Yes, nothing has worked so far." I placed the crystal against his back. The crystal got hot, his back got hot, and the pain went away.

"The pain is gone, it's completely gone!"

"How does that work, Ralph?"

"I haven't the slightest idea. Nothing I have ever read or studied, talked about crystals and healing."

At this point I decided to go to the experts. First I went to my minister. After all the churches all talk about healing. My church even had special healing evenings. I asked him how healing worked. He said that was up to God. All they could do was pray and lay on their hands and God did all the rest. I went to the local Catholic priest and asked him the same thing and in essence got the same answer. All the other priests and rabbis I asked had about the same answer. No one knew how it worked, only God.

Then I went to the University and asked professors of medicine, physics, electronics (they use quartz in electronics), even geology. They all said "You can't do that". After I took away their pain they all said they did not know how it worked and there were no scientific studies on healing properties of quartz that they knew of.

I realized I had something new and I was excited and very curious. Since neither the churches nor academia seemed to know much about healing, I begun to investigate metaphysics. At least they had methods and theories. I took classes and opened up my sensitivity. I seemed to have a natural ability for healing and the quartz made it easy.

I showed my crystal to my fellow students and they asked me to get them one. I realized there was an expense to bringing crystals to others and I arranged for my minerals dealer to sell wholesale to me and I began to sell to others.

In one class we were sitting in a circle, six of us. We were all holding a crystal. We were meditating to merge our minds together. Suddenly we were seated around a table covered with crystals. We were all dressed in clothes like togas and wore laced up sandals. A voice came from one of the women in our circle and declared this was in Atlantis and we were all part of one of the groups who helped destroy Atlantis with our experiments with energy. Two things struck me. This was the first time I had ever experienced the process of channeling. And it was disconcerting to think I was one of the people who helped destroy Atlantis.

The voice continued to say we could help redeem ourselves by sitting as a group, once a week, and reclaim knowledge we once knew in Atlantis and other cultures and use this knowledge to help the world. We sat, as a group, for over 2 years and gained a basic knowledge of crystals, energy, and consciousness. During this time I opened my own channel and began to receive information from my inner teachers. They called themselves, Guidance and have continued to teach me to this day.

That same year I founded the Crystal Awareness Institute to serve as the organization which could research and understand what I was experiencing, and eventually teach it to others."

Through the years the focus has been on healing, life force energy, and methods of gaining it. Our research has moved into some strange and interesting areas. We teach classes in energy healing. Our system is called Crystalotherapy, to honor the original tool we still use.

We offer 12 levels of training for Professional Crystalotherapist. And weeklong retreats in healing, Crystal Energy Grid Systems, and making ritual Magic Wands. For more information, email us at

We have branches in Mexico and Australia and have taught in Brazil, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Romania, Holland, Japan, and Hong Kong.

Inventions have come forth from this research. People in 11 countries are now wearing the Wheel of Life medallion and enjoying both its powerful protective shield and its healing capacity. With its use we can reduce physical pain and muscle tension in 10 minutes or less.

The Mandala Charger gives the user the capability of owning an unending source of bioenergy. It will charge your water and food, crystals and jewelry, vitamins and supplements. It has been used directly on pain and soreness with excellent results. It can even be used for remote healing.

Research is ongoing in the areas of food preservation, structured water, water purification, and even improving the taste of wine.

DaEl Walker is the Director of the Crystal Awareness Institute. For over 25 years he has focused research on subtle energy, crystals, healing, and sensitivity training. He has taught in 9 countries on 4 continents. He was the first western healer to teach healing to Japan. In February 1996, he was the only international speaker at the first New Age Expo in Asia, in Hong Kong. November 1996 he was the only American among 28 presenters at the first "Conference of Alternative Therapies" held in Eastern Europe, in Romania. His presentation was officially voted Best of Conference by the attendees. In 1998 he received the Martin De La Cruz Prize from the Academia Mexicana de Medicina Tradicional, at the 12th International Conference on Traditional Medicine, cosponsored by the University of New Mexico. This prize is given each year to the individual or organization that has contributed the most to alternative healing.

He has been involved in Crystal Skull Research since 1986 when he was part of a team of researchers who went to Canada and worked with the Mitchell-Hedges Skull. He has since worked on 27 crystal skulls and is the guardian of Rainbow, an ancient crystal skull. He is now travelling with the skull and bringing it to the attention of the world.

DaEl is part Native American, descended from the Cherokee tribe. He is an elder in the Spirit Horse Medicine Society.
