Can I Get Your Opinion?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Crystals 3 Comments

Thank you all for your support!!! The former-mentioned rejection letter has not swayed me in the least. That was just a shot in the dark while persuing the Self Published route. And I’m still moving right along.

So! Can I ask for yoru assistnace please? For the Back Cover Blurb. Does this work?

“Have you heard of crystal grids but wondered what they are, how they work and how you work with them? Me too! That’s why I wrote this book.  This is not an airy-fairy sort of crystal healing book. Using science as our platform, you’ll explore the “how’s” and “why’s”. Through my love of “science-y” subject matter, I help explain what a crystal grid is, the sacred geometry foundation of them, their energy fields, the connection to Mother Earth’s own grid, how you can use them with distance healing work, how to set your intention, how to choose a grid formation, the components of a crystal grid, how to select which crystals to use in your grid, how to activate and maintain your grid, how to charge other objects within a grid and even some practical grid “recipes” for various purposes! This practical guide will help you to infuse crystal grids into your everyday life in a powerful way. Being practical, you’ll find this guidebook outlined with clear, basic instructions on specific crystal grids and their use.”

Honest feedback is much appreciated. 🙂

The Rejection Letter

Well, I told you, you’d be 2nd to know. The letter came in while I was on vacation. After initially telling me they were considering my book, here’s the let down (why even tell me they were considering it?). I now move on with the rest of my evil plan! ;):

I’ve Gone & Written a Book

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Crystals 2 Comments

So, I’ve decided to write a book. I’ve been writing articles and curricula for a while and have been urged by many to do this, but shied away b/c of the discipline I knew it would take…and the fact that I know that abbreviations like “b/c” are frowned upon in the all mighty book-writing world. 😛 (So are emoticons!!!)
So what’s this book about? Well, of course, I’m sure you’ve guessed by now that it will be about crystals. But if I wrote a book about all my crystal theories, it would literally be a brick. Plus I am always changing my theories based on new information brought to light or experimentation so I figured attacking my theories in smaller chunks was a better idea. So the book I have written is about Crystal Grids. *aahhhhhhh, angels singing*

You may notice from my blog that my writing style is a tad quirky when compared to the traditional crystal authors out there. Well, I haven’t changed that one bit. My book is no different. I was advised to change the quirky conversational tone but I can’t. This is me and this is how I roll, this is how I teach, this is how I do. If you like my communication style and you like working with crystals then you may like my book.

I took a two prong approach to this whole book writing thing. I simultaneously have submitted it to just two publishing houses: Hey House and Llewellyn. At the same time, I chose to embark on the Self Publishing route. Whichever gets me to the finish line first, wins! I was very selective with the two publishing houses I chose to submit to for a reason. I like their subject matter and style and I don’t want to go batty in the process. I’ve already heard back from Hey House; they won’t take submissions directly from an author, only from Literary Agents. No desire to hire a Lit Agent so that’s the end of Hey House. I’m still waiting to hear back from Llewellyn and you’ll all be the second to know when I do. (Hubby’s 1st). In the meantime, I’m having the book professionally edited and cover design done by a professional graphic artist. I think I’m more excited about the cover than anything else! Of course, I’ll post that here too as soon as I get it. 😀

Crystal Blessings!

Love Crystals

Hibiscus Moon Crystals, love, meditation 1 Comment

I did a poll on my Facebook Page the other day asking “What kind of a crystal grid would you need most right now?” “Love & Compassion” was the winning answer with “Abundance & Prosperity” running a close send. After doing that poll, I had to ask, “what kind of love?”. After all, we know there are so many types of love; I really should’ve been more specific. Some were looking for more love and compassion for others, some wanted self love, some wanted romantic love, etc.

Just to keep it general, to infuse love of all kinds into your life, I recommend lots of rose quartz. Use it in meditations, to project energy into a room, in a crystal grid, wear it or stuff it in your bra (sorry guys). I have a large piece on one of our night stands at all times along with a HUGE piece in my sacred space. If I feel that things might be tense at home I will imagine a FUN-tabulous humongous rose quartz pyramid over my house as I drive up to it from blocks away. It truly works wonders! I also like to do a rose quartz heart meditation regularly. Here’s a vid I did on that a while ago:

Rhodonite is another good one for general matters of the heart and calming too! It’s also good for anxiety, compassion and generosity. It has many of the same qualities as rose quartz (with some extra grounding thrown in) only a bit more expensive since it’s not as easy to come by. OK, hearts & love to all!

P.S. I love your comments & hope that Blogger has fixed the commenting back problems this week.
