Crystal Dawn Hurt

“The sun still rises, even with pain” – The Head and the Heart

Hello, radiant souls! I’m Crystal Dawn Hurt, and I’ve always cherished the name I was given. It not only represents my journey with Crystal Dawn Energy but also symbolizes my determination to overcome the inner “hurt” I’ve carried with me for years.

Growing up as the daughter of now divorced, recovering alcoholics, my family projected an illusion of perfection, concealing the complex reality beneath the surface. I’m intimately familiar with how childhood trauma can cast a long shadow on one’s adult life. I was an achiever and dreamer, my parents supported me, but I ended up with a tremendously skewed vision of  self-worth and love.

Circumstances piled up as I grew older.  At age 25 I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder after buying a my first home in the lazy small town of Elwood, Nebraska. As I renovated, the previous owner (who, unbeknownst to me, died in the home), began communicating with me. He told me of his service in Vietnam and asked me to send some of his memorabilia that was still in the house to his brother, who I was able to track down, to complete his request. 

It was the first time I was able to see through the veil, and it freaked a lot of people out, including myself. I spent five days in “grippy socks” at a mental health clinic. 

In retrospect, this period was a spiritual awakening, but I was led to believe I was fundamentally flawed.

As a result of this awakening, I went through a multitude of pharmaceuticals, counseling sessions, and psychiatry appointments, with one medication leading to another to address side effects. The prevailing belief was that I would need lifelong medication, but I felt disconnected from my true self.

I felt like a zombie due to the medications and gained 30 pounds. In this process, I resorted to self-medicating with alcohol, I ceased taking photos, and withdrew from social media, grappling with daily thoughts of self-harm. Moreover, the financial burden of traditional therapy was substantial; at one point, my expenses exceeded $2,700 per month. Yet, none of this brought me the peace I sought.

I yearned for a different approach, prompting me to explore alternative modes of medicine and healing. After extensive research and embracing a holistic approach, I discovered modalities that resonated with me, giving me a new hope for life. As I deepen my practice, these modalities not only help me survive but thrive. I reclaimed my body, abandoned prescription medications, and rediscovered the joy of living—mind, body, and soul.

Through my healing journey, I’ve obtained certifications in Sound Healing, Reiki, and am currently completing my NLP/Hypnosis certification. I also provide Psychedelic Integration Coaching, focusing on the healing potential of plant-based remedies.

Before embarking on this path, I dedicated 14 years of my life to teaching full-time in the public school system. My educational background includes a Bachelor’s in 7-12 English and K-12 ESL, as well as a Master’s in PK-12 Reading Speciality. I’ve always considered myself a lifelong learner, a trait that continues to enrich my practice.

Beyond my healing journey, I’m a devoted nature enthusiast, finding solace in camping, kayaking, hiking, and the exploration of new horizons. I share my life with two feline companions, Pneuma and Rabble Rouser. My passion for nurturing life extends to propagating plants, so don’t be surprised if you leave my healing studio with a green companion of your own.

I hope for an opportunity to work with you, guiding you toward light and love on your unique journey.

With light and love ☀️❤️☀️,

Crystal Dawn


My Strengths


I have a great desire to learn and want to continuously improve. As a avid life-long learner, I love sharing information in all formats (books, videos, podcasts, etc) with my clients. The process of learning, rather than the outcome, excites me, and I am always sharpening my skills through increased knowledge and experience.


I love goal-setting and celebrating success and want to help you do the same! I believe in the power of commiting to a task, breaking it apart into manageable components, and rewarding oneself upon completion. If you are working towards a goal, let me help you achieve it.


I am committed to individual and group excellence. I focus on what is good, and seek to transform it into something great. The idea of an untapped potential excites me. I naturally work towards achieving the best, and inspire others to do the same.


I am insanely curious, constantly acquiring information, facts and knowledge about several topics. This makes me an insightful conversationalist who can always share new information and ways to shift perspectives.


What Clients Say

It still takes my breath away thinking about this retreat, there are many healers and spiritual guides, but none like Crystal Dawn. She has perfectly harnessed her years of experience in education, and communication merging them with her knowledge of the holistic. Her approach, seemingly effortlessly casual, teaching through living, just when you least expect it her mastery of these skills manifests and leaves you in reverent awe. If you are seeking healing, and clarity about your path in life, your place in the universe, seeking your authenticity. Find a teacher who lives authentically, find Crystal. I am excited to continue to learn at sessions in her beautiful studio, and can't wait for the next retreat!


Thank you so much for sharing your healing guidance last night. I feel much more focused and calm this morning. I am grateful to you and the Universe. I have more energy and things are really much clearer. Amazing the power of the energy and vibrations which you control. I was very impressed with your entire session. Thanks again!
