Here’s Another: an Amethyst Dream!

Have you ever heard of the ‘Empress of Uruguay’? At 2500 tons & about 11 ft. tall, she’s the largest amethyst geode (or any geode) we know of.  She now belongs to collectors, René and Nelleke Boissevain who show her off in Queensland, Australia.

Amethyst to help with a headache, this is a little kit I put together that I just adore…& use more than I would like to:

Now, “amethyst” comes the Greek word, “amethystos” which means “not drunk”. LOL! This goes all the way back dating back to an ancient tale involving Bacchus, the god of wine.
Apparently, he drank his fav beverage from an amethyst goblet & this would keep him from getting totally sauced. teeeeheeee. Maybe I to get one of those babies. 😉
So what else does amethyst do for us? Well for most it enhances intuition and psychic abilities while allowing us to make a deeper spiritual connection. Its also a very calming stone, relieves headaches, protects us, lulls us to sleep and aids in getting rid of addictions. Who wouldn’t want a big chunk of this around?

What’s your experience with amethyst? Take it, leave it or LOVE it?!

Crystal Blessings!


Thankfullness & Making Dreams Come True

Hibiscus Moon creativity, Everyday/Personal Stuffs, gratefullness, law of attraction 2 Comments

I am remembering, yet again, to be thankful for all the blessings, large & small…even the itty-bitty ones. But really I have sooo sooo much to be grateful for. Yes, things are shifting and changing, sometimes feeling funky, but its a fun ride, isn’t it? I am enjoying it. As scary as it seems sometimes, I have to remind myself to just let go & FLOW.

I was just emaling this to a dear friend today…I just hope I’m riding the waves the “right” way so I can continue to grow & evolve in the right direction. I went to the beach today, just for 10 precious, sacred minutes. I flicked off my sandals & flopped my butt into the sand…just grounding & looking at the lifeguards & having MUCHO RESPECT for them

one of them riding his rusty bicycle up to the lifeguard stand
RESPECT for choosing to work in a blessed paradise as their OFFICE.
I began longing for the days when I used to do that…working jobs out in nature, with gorgeous animals or in the parks. Yeah, scraping nickels to pay the bills & debtors nipping at my heels but I worked in nature & was so connected. I didn’t care about health insurance or any of that yucky mundane boring junk!

Now I work long hours, indoors under fluorescent bulbs with no windows (not a one!) & then work at my laptop all night…

so that I can live my natural life again soon….live the dream. AND I AM THANKFULL FOR THAT SACRED DREAM. A dream coming true. :) 

What are you thankful for? What are your dreams coming true?

Crystal Blessings!

The synchro-mystic signs last week were so numerous there was no way to ignore their message. It all started when I drew the Volcano: volatility card from my  deck. I had an uneasy feeling seeing this card, besides the fact that it says “volatility” on it, there’s the artwork of a gorgeous Mother Earth mount, blowing her stack, yet amid the pyroclastic flow in the atmosphere…barely there…is the most gorgeous Goddess face looking like she’s in ecstasy. So I knew this meant “change”, but would lead to ecstatically good things!

Next, came the most lovely lunch with an online friend I’ve been wanting to meet up, chat up, hang out with for a long time, my Flora.
Firstly, she is such an amazing soul & reminds me of a bright beautiful pixie but I felt like I had always known her & just hadn’t seen her for a really long time.
Yepsies, that’s it! But at the end of our lunch at a scrumptious outdoor cafe, I pick up my Buick-of-a-purse from my lap & beneath it was this caterpillar!

Oh yeah, he’s adorable yet he can cause quite the allergic reaction, especially if he happens to bite you. But he didn’t & I just left him be on the table. So, a wee bit of Caterpillar Medicine: Transformation/Metamorphosis medicine. Hmmm, what could be changing so drastically?

After that the messages came flooding in all week>> Butterflies everywhere, a snake in my dream & in the grass as hubby (HBL) & I puttered round the yard.
All of these messages shouting “TRANSFORMATION”!!
Yes, I did speak of many changes taking place here in my biz; was this a reference to that? What about the volatility aspect? That’s a little scary

Was it referencing to the shifting energies? 11/11/11? I certainly was creating up a CRYSTAL STORM on that day!! I made gem elixirs, essences, oils, you name it, I made it. The Sun’s pranic energies were perfectly intense on that day for making such powerful stuffs.

I also got a Mac & I’m this close to throwing in the towel; trying to learn but I know its the right move for the future of my sacred crystal biz,
so I’m pulling up my big girl panties up to my armpits & sticking it out.
I’m still contemplating what the deeper meaning of this transformation is all about & will be meditating on it…&, of course, getting a little help from my crystals on this: moldavite & clear quartz Baby!

So, my Crystal Hotties, tell me I’m not alone in this…have you been having any Transformational Growing Pains as well? Please tell me all about it.

Crystal Blessings!

Crystal Q & A: Electrical Properties?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work, science 5 Comments

I recently received this interesting question: “I was wondering about something for a while now & concluded that you are the best person I know of to ask :) I have read that amber, jet & some other stones possess electric properties that can create an electrical charge? I don’t really understand this so it may be all wrong, but would you be able to explain it to me please & maybe how I can utilise this property?”
Now, this answer could get painfully boring but I’m not about that. I’m into getting the science across while making it as painless as possible & somehow find the FUN in it!
Jet & amber both have the unique property of becoming electrically charged when rubbed with wool (inducing a negative charge) or silk (inducing a positive charge)…TRY IT!: the turboelectric effect. I love saying that! 

They can also become statically charged when they come in contact with your body. Then can be discharged simply by running under water.

This is also a great way to tell the difference between copal, “Colombian amber” & true-blue Amber. Copal will not be turbo-electric. Not, that there’s anything wrong with copal…just don’t get suckered into paying a high amber-like price for it!

Oh yeah, notice up there that I wrote “stones”. That’s b/c neither of these are technically stones nor are they crystals. They have organic origins meaning they come from living things. Amber is fossilized tree resin & jet is the result of decaying wood under intense pressure. Cool, huh?


Amber is a wonderful confidence-booster, metabolism-booster, a happy stone, aka “solid sunlight” making it PERFECTO for those who suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) during the winter months. Shout out to those of us in the N. Hemi.!!


This stone is great for protection b/c it transmutes negative energy while also an excellent grounding stone & purifier. Great for those who need to detox their liver & kidneys.

So, both jet & amber are good transmuters of negative energy. Could it be due to this turboelectric  property? Interesting to think that it might be, huh? Have you tried working with jet or amber? I’d love to hear your experiences!!

Crystal Blessings,

New Site ~ Lots of Changes Afoot!

Hibiscus Moon amethyst, blogging, creativity, Crystal Healing, energy work, Everyday/Personal Stuffs, law of attraction 5 Comments

Ahhh! I’m back! I feel at home, blogging away again. Oh! How do you like the new site?

I’ve been dying to blog this, that & the other, but I had to stay away for a bit while my sweet Angel at moved my site over to Wordpress for me & designed the SPARKLY CRAPOLA out of it! Even my old Blogger posts moved here along with me. How cool is that!?

So! There were so many things I wanted to blog about while I was on the blog wagon, but just had to keep it all bottled up. Now I’m ready to just BURST! I’m so excited about this brand new GORGEOUS site that Angel designed for me along with the sparkly graphics to boot created by Michelle!
I’m surrounded by lovely beautiful mystical muses who help me at every turn.
I took the photo of the amethyst up there in my new banner…that will be the star of the show on all my stuffs from now on.But funny thing is that I no longer own that particular amethyst & one of you sweet souls out there now do! Weeee!

Yep, so…I’ve been blogging since 2002 but have moved my blog from Tripod to Blogger and now here, so I’ve lost a good bit along the way like boxes falling out of the back of the pick-up moving truck. I know this place will suit me & my HUMONGOID growing pains…b/c yes, we are a-growin’! Who wants to come along on the CRAZY CRYSTAL TRAIN for a very fun ride? 😛

With a rapidly growing student body that is taking more time, I hired my lovely assistant, Renata, to help out plus I’ve upgraded some services, with everything becoming something bigger that cannot be done part time or on the super-cheap.
Quit?! No, I love doing this! My Hibiscus Moon biz has been my passion for the last 3+ years. And I really believe in it & all the lovely souls I have met through teaching about crystals.
So, through some business coaching, contemplation & meditation, its became very clear (CRYSTAL-CLEAR!) that I need to change lots of stuffs in my sacred crystal biz to make this viable; to make it work & keep doing what I love & allowing more & more of you to partake in this journey as well.

With all the new opportunities for growth literally sprouting at my feet, I made a decision to do this full time. But I will ease into that, need to make sure the bills still get paid & all that boring stuff. In the meantime, Renata and I will be running the Academy and I have a slew of crystal kits, ideas, e-books, classes, meditations, etc. just waiting to be birthed. This is so very exciting!!!
