  • Crystal never knew she was carrying a tremendous amount of guilt and shame
  • Crystal realized that she needed to write a book about everything she was going through and it gave her access to her archetypes
  • Crystal shares how she plays with her archetypes and the idea of a mother and a woman
  • It is amazing when you think that you’re the original inventor of an idea
  • The idea of yang just came to Crystal
  • Yang’s 3 aspects to one’s personality – the ego, the shadow, and the collective unconscious
  • Freud’s Id, ego and superego

  • When you come into your human energy, you can come to the greatest expression of who you are
  • Giovanna is constantly repeating to her clients that our most important job is to learn to be parents ourselves
  • There are pieces of ourselves that we judge
  • We break that piece off of ourselves and bury it in our subconscious
  • When you became an adult, you heal the ones you bury, but we usually just forget them
  • By the time that we are old, we can’t recognize ourselves anymore because we buried so many pieces
  • Healing or repairing ourselves is the gentle process of regaining the broken pieces to become whole again

  • Be more compassionate with your relationships
  • It is easier when you become your best self
  • Don’t seek only for the physical things to make you happy
  • People go after something they think can do good to them
  • Crystal was Miss Galaxy when she decided she wanted to have babies
  • Crystal had all the things she wanted, but still ended up feeling empty inside
  • We’ve all had the same experience as Crystal
  • Crystal watched pregnant Beyonce at the Grammys and she adored Beyonce

  • We have to celebrate our big bright lights and not let others dim them
  • Don’t let the negative things get to you – they make you stronger
  • “You know why Trump is now the president of the United States? Because good people keep their mouths shut”
  • Crystal had been attacked when she posted one thing about Trump
  • Women attack other women by going to their physical features
  • Know yourself and own it – this is how you become whole
  • Crystal’s The S.W.A.T Institute (Simply Woman Accredited Trainer) can take you higher so you can communicate and be neutral

  • Crystal built the first program and it took 3 years to complete
