Crystal Healer Reflection

On March 19, 2011, late at night, I sat outside on my patio contemplating the question that plagues many people.

“Who am I, what am I doing here?” 

Although nothing was truly “wrong” in my life, I began to feel despondent and depressed as I pondered my purpose on earth.  Yes, I was a good mother, blessed with four incredible children.  Yes, I had a loving marriage and big-time career. Why did I feel like something was missing?

 Frustrated, I leaned my head back on my patio chair, and my eyes fixed upon the biggest, brightest full moon I had ever seen in my life. For reasons unknown at the time, my heart started to pound and tears began to stream down my cheeks.  I reached for my smart phone and googled “why is the moon so big”.   I found the answer; it was called a “super moon”.  The moon was closer to the earth due to its oval shaped orbit than it had been in 20 years.  It was a truly awe-inspiring sight.

One google search about the moon lead to another, and before I knew it I was fully engrossed in reading about Moon Goddesses, Wicca, witchcraft, and a bevy of other topics that I was raised to believe were forbidden and taboo.  It was only a few days until I dedicated myself to a spiritual path centered on finding this mysterious Goddess whom I had never known before, but who intrigued me so deeply.

The next few weeks for me were spent reading articles and watching videos about anything that I could find related to Goddess worship.  I eventually found my way to a you tube channel called phanie12 . In her videos, a faceless woman with a kind and cheerful voice taught me everything I wanted to know about how crystals and gemstones could heal, manifest, and inspire.  I bought my very first crystal (a small citrine point), and when I first held it in my hand, I knew I held something very powerful.

I came to know phanie12 as Hibiscus Moon, and I began visiting her website and reading about her Certified Crystal Healer Course.  Oh what a pipe dream! I could never do anything like that! Or could I?

After much prayer, manifesting, and self-convincing, I finally enrolled in Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy to become a Certified Crystal Healer.  As I am finishing the courses and the prescribed work, I almost cannot believe that my “pipe dream” is a reality.  The answer to the question “why am I here on this earth?” is very clear to me now.

I am here to help others to be healed.

However, this is not the end of my journey by any means.  In order to be a successful healer, I must continue to heal myself- physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I must continue on my path of learning, for this is not a journey with a final destination, but a never-ending path of self-development, discipline, and growth.  Finally, I am on my way!

Get To Know Your Crystal: An Exercise

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Grids, Crystal Healing, Crystals, divination, energy work, meditation, spirituality 10 Comments

Today we have a guest blog post from Sweet Karina Ladet about how she uses crystals. I love peering into other’s lives & finding out how they work with the energies. Read on for a great exercise you can use to connect with your crystals.
Here’s Karina!
I have loved and felt attracted to crystals for as long as I can remember.

When I was younger I used to visit crystal shops and pick the crystals that called to me. I felt a strong connection in my heart and this would guide my choice.

I still choose crystals intuitively and over the years I have mostly chosen amethyst and quartz. I love them! In order to keep my mind clear and not analyse too much. I haven’t really found out much about their properties and I just recently found out what they are.  I was very happy to read that amethyst helps develop spiritual and psychic abilities and quartz is also known to strengthen and amplify energy.

Isn’t it lovely how our inner voice tells us where to go?

My Soul’s Purpose is to connect with my spirit guides and to communicate with them. I love receiving messages and I love it even more when I get the chance to share them with other gorgeous souls. Up until now I have mostly been doing one on one readings but now I feel called to share the very simple but powerful tools I have learned so that you can also connect directly with your guides.

It is my belief that anyone can channel their guides and that all it takes is an open heart and a longing to do so. When the time is right you will need to raise your energy levels in order to connect with your guides.
One way to open up and start to communicate is to do the following exercise:

  • Relax and take a couple of deep breaths.
  • Open up your heart and breathe through it for a moment.
  • When you feel centered and calm, choose a crystal that you love or that calls you at this time. Pick it up and put it in front of you.
  • If you like you can listen to relaxing music or move your body gently.
  • When you feel completely relaxed and centered close your eyes and pick up your crystal.
  • Feel how your heart opens up even more to the energy of the crystal and breathe together. Feel the energies merging together and raising your energy level.
  • Breath and enjoy the beautiful energy for as long as it feels right for you.
  • When you are ready, ask the crystal for a message and listen with your heart. Be open to any kind of communication (words, images, feelings, smells…).
  • Spend some time communicating with your crystal and let the energy flow freely.
  • When it feels right, thank the crystal and slowly put it down.

The key is to keep an open heart and if you don’t feel like you received any messages, just ask the crystal to communicate with you when you are ready. Have faith in your own internal rhythm. I believe that communication is possible when we are truly ready to receive it. Sometimes it happens right away and sometimes it takes longer. Trust that it will happen when the time is right for You, dearest.

When I teach others how to channel I use a couple of quartz crystals and I create a sacred space by placing them in a big triangle around the beautiful souls who are participating. I do this in order to create a safe space to hold them and also to raise the energy to facilitate their contact with the spirit guides.

I love the energy of crystals and it’s so compatible with the guides’ energy. They match so well!

As I continue to develop my spiritual work I feel a stronger need for protection and to keep my energy lovely and strong. In order to do this guess what I use? Crystals ; ).

My mother gifted me with a beautiful quartz pendant. This crystal is hexagonal and there is a woman sitting in a new moon, surrounded by stars, engraved on it. I love this pendant because it radiates peaceful energy and it comes from a very special place in Brazil where the well-known healer, John of God, receives people from all over the world. This place is located on one of the largest quartz crystal deposits in the world. (Maybe a place for you, Hibiscus Moon!!)

Gorgeous crystals show up on my path and I am so happy to have them by my side. They help me and give me the strength and energy I need. I feel that we need them more and more as the energies here on Earth (and in the Universe?) are shifting. I feel so grateful to be making this life journey with such powerful and intelligent companions.

Thank you for reading and thank you, Hibiscus Moon, for sharing your lovely space with me!

Big hugs, Karina

4 Crystals for “Protection”

Hibiscus Moon amethyst, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work, meditation, science 26 Comments


I often get some version of the following question in emails, PM’s, etc. Since I don’t have the time to individually answer these emails, I thought my blog was a great way to get the info out there. So here’s the basic question:
“I’m completely new to crystals. Which crystals would be good for protection, warding off negative energies, etc.”
OK. Firstly, I don’t buy into the whole “negative energies” thing…most of the time.

I feel energy is neutral.

It’s our perception of the energy that gives it a positive or negative feeling or meaning to us. Meaning, there may be  negative feelings within you that are resonating with the frequencies of the energy that you’re experiencing & therefore, it makes that experience feel “bad” to you. If your feelings are high amplitude enough (meaning lots of energy) then it may even attract those frequencies that feel yucky & AMPLIFY them. That will feel bad!

We are beings of energy & we’re affected by energy.

We’re made of trillions of cells transmitting & receiving energy all the time. Its so COOL to think of this!!!!

Dr. Bruce Lipton actually says that our very cell membranes are liquid crystal semiconductors (silica…QUARTZ, BABY!!) with gates & channels that open & close, letting some stuffs in & keeping some stuffs out. He says that our DNA actually  scans our environment for relevant frequencies & then reshapes itself accordingly. (We can see this happening under the microscope).

See where I’m going with this, My Sweets?
The right crystal will adjust your cell’s perception filters & transmute energy for you! Waaaahooo!
So we have total control over this & can use crystals as a tool & support to help us along. You can also do this without crystals, but if you’d like the extra assit, there are a  couple that I like to use.

Certain crystals can neutralize & transmute the energetic frequencies so they don’t carry specific frequencies that may resonate with those bad feelings. Here are a few of my fav’s:

1. Black tourmaline is known for its ability to transmute & “cleanse” energy:

2. Smokey quartz is also THE BOMB for this:

3. OR my favorite combo for this black tourmaline & smokey quartz:

4. And then there’s GORGEOUS amethyst:

One thing you can do is meditate with any of these crystals. Even just spending 5 min. in meditation with them…this will help transmute energy entering your EMF.

You can also create A “protective” transmuting  “shield” around your home, placing crystals in specific locations; 1 near front door, 1 near back door, etc.

Or you place crystals at THE corners of YOUR house or property creating an outdoor grid for your home:
In this video I detail how to do a Protective Home Grid:

So I hope that answers  few questions & empowers you to just switch that energy up!

Crystal Sparkles to you!!


How Do You Store Your Crystals?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Crystals, Everyday/Personal Stuffs 7 Comments

How Do You Store Your Crystals?

Are your crystals & stones out sparkling away, safely stored or simply gathering dust?

This is what I used to do (3 years ago)…but no more:

So, how many of you Crystal Hotties have your crystals, rocks, stones & goodies constantly out & exposed, or whether you like to have them kept in safe places & only get them out for those special occasions…like healing & meditation work?

Or like my friend & Crystalline Cohort, Cindy, says:
“Sometimes you want to just play & bond with them.”
I can totally relate! Ever have the need to do that? heeheee!

I keep most of mine out where I can look at them & purely enjoy them & where they are free to do there thing.

So where do I keep them?:

  • I’ve moved some of my more delicate or expensive pieces into my China cabinet to keep little kiddy hands off of them when they come to visit (thy can’t RESIST!!)
  • Some are busy working in crystal grids
  • Some smaller pieces are stored away in that wooden box in the vid up above with a cloth lining just to keep them all where I can easily find them
  • There’s my programmed crystal that’s always stored away SAFE & SOUND to hold its program better: I wrote a whole post recently on some changes I’ve implemented with that & why
  • There are others sprinkled around the house for various reasons (EMF protection, projecting good vibes, a little feng shui & a couple in my purse & car)

So what do you like to do, My Sweets? Please share more in the comments below! We love to share & read this stuffs!

Spotting Crystal Fakes & Frauds: Part 1

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Crystals, science 56 Comments

2015-02-11 12.30.34

Hey Crystal Peeps!  I get a lot of questions about this topic & have been working on a loooong article on this topic for a loooong time…it just keeps getting longer. A little bit ago I posted some of this in a newsletter about 6 months ago (you can subscribe up there on the right side of my banner!) I figured I need to get a bit more of this out there now  & perhaps 1 day it will mature into a grown-up full-fledged article! Yay!
So, is the crystal you purchased natural, enhanced or an all-out fake?
The only way to know for sure is with exhaustive lab tests, however, you can still use your mad-crystal-skills & a little geology to make a strong educated guess. I see lots of misinformed YouTube vids on some of these & just want to set the record straight so you can make wise & informed decisions when making your crystal purchases, My Sweets!
Glass vs. Quartz
Glass is an amorphous solid. Oooooo, BIG SEXY SCIENTIFIC WORD! Amorphous just means that due to quick cooling, the molecules didn’t have time to arrange themselves in a crystalline repeating geometric pattern. Quartz, on other hand, cooled slowly & does have the geometrically perfect molecular structure that all crystals do. That’s what makes a crystal a crystal, Sweet Pea!

Glass will often have tiny air bubbles, quartz won’t. End of story.
Fruit-Named Quartz (strawberry, cherry, pineapple, blueberry, C’mon guys!)
Fruity-named crystals is usually a tip off of FAKES! Not always, but I’ve found it to be true more often than not. These are typically dyed quartz or glass. Sometimes, natural red-colored fire or harlequin quartz may be dubbed “strawberry”  by the seller but since those in the geo-community equate the fruity name with artificial glass, most sellers in the know would stay away from calling it that.

Fire Quartz from Africa- the real deal

Turquoise vs. Dyed Magnesite or Reconstituted
Magnesite looks very similar to turquoise…when it’s been dyed. So does howlite. Undyed howlite & magnesite may even be sold as “white turquoise!” SHEEESH! A telltale sign of Dyed magnesite is very deep cracks. Then we have “reconstituted” turquoise. Reconstituted is when small amounts of turquoise that would otherwise be wasted are recycled by grinding it into a fine powder.  Resins & dyes may be added & then pressed into a mold, carved or shaped.

Here are my tried & true tips for testing your turquoise:

  • UV Light Test: turquoise containing resins will fluoresce; have a black-light? Check it out!
  • Scratch Test: due to its Moh’s hardness being a 5-6, it can be scratched by a steel knife & under magnification the edges will look tattered, if they’re smooth as butter, it’s not the real deal
  • Hot Needle Test: the tip of a hot needle will burn real turquoise, but reconstituted will melt
  • I really like DurangoSilver’s video on what exactly “White Turquoise” is:

    Amethyst, Citrine or Rose Quartz with SUPER-saturated color
    If your quartz is really vibrant & pretty uniform in color it may be dyed. A tell-tale sign of dyed quartz is excess dye collecting in cracks.

    And that fuchsia, bright green & deep blue agate…you know that’s dyed, right?


    So the moral of the story, my Sweet Crystal Hotties, is…Buyer Beware. Who are you buying from? Are they reputable & do they know what they’re talking about? Be informed & cautious. Do you have any fake-out stories to tell? Please post below to help us all out!

    Happy Crystal Buying. :)

    WINNER HAS BEEN SELECTED:  Lisa (from the comments below) is the winner of the Soul Blend giveaway

    Today I have a guest post from the lovely Jackie Stewart, who I’ve blogged about before b/c she’s a Sparkly Gem Elixir SiSTAR!! She even put together a Spectacular Giveaway & a FREE mp3 for us!! How cool is this!!?

    P.S. I’m so  excited that my Gem Elixir eKit is just about complete & at this moment Tech Princess Michelle is working on putting the finishing touched on it. I’ll be releasing that to the Universe during the waxing Moon.

    OK, let’s get to Jackie’s post right away. This is good stuffs!
    Ruby, Sapphire, A Meditation and a Giveaway
    The two crystal essences that I prescribe most often for clients are ruby and sapphire. Although these stones are similar in uncut form, the energies from their essences are quite different. I see them as the mother and father of the crystal essence world – ruby essence giving you a big hug from a father who wants you to succeed and sapphire essence giving you a gentle motherly reminder to listen to your intuition and inspiration.

    Ruby and sapphire both feature in the Soul Blend combinations of deep-acting flower and crystal essences I’ve created to aid self-love, self-nurturing, creative flow, soul wisdom, authentic expression, living your dreams and sacred balance {}

    Ruby Essence

    Ruby essence is a wonderful essence to take if you’re feeling indecisive, procrastinating or hesitating from stepping into your power. It will bring the stability and confidence you need to shine your light in the world.

    Take ruby when your Soul is yearning for the qualities of divine love, confidence and leadership.

    Ruby essence is a master healer for the heart and heart chakra, transforming self-love into divine love and releasing hostility. A healthy heart chakra radiates love in a balanced way, acting with love and compassion for self and others. Subsequently ruby soothes relationships with others, aids negotiation, self-confidence and spiritual growth.

    Ruby essence is helpful when there’s anger towards the father or difficulty expressing the masculine qualities of action and leadership. Ruby’s vibration is all about confidence and stability so you’ll experience improved decision-making and positive thinking whilst taking it.  As ruby is taken, you’ll feel more secure and steady, giving you the confidence to take action.


    The law of attraction tells us that we need to feel successful and confident to attract success into our lives. If you want find success by offering your gifts to the world with radiant confidence, try ruby essence.

    Ruby essence is in Self-Love, Authentic Expression and Live Your Dreams Soul Blends

    Blue Sapphire Essence

    Sapphire essence will soothe your soul when you’re feeling depressed, uninspired or having difficulties with self-expression. Often these three symptoms go hand in hand.

    Take sapphire when your Soul is yearning for inspiration, a deeper connection to your spirituality and a balanced sense of self-worth.

    Sapphire essence resonates with the solar plexus chakra, reducing tension created by fear and anxiety. Anxiety is often felt in the solar plexus (stomach area) because this is where we register negative psychic impressions, struggle with self-worth, boundaries and personal power. When someone has low self-worth they don’t act on intuitive impulses because the fear of failure is so great.

    As sapphire essence is taken you’ll deepen your connection to intuition and inspiration from your Higher Self, so that becomes your natural source of guidance.  You won’t worry about failure because you’ll be aligned with your inner wisdom and inspiration. As a result you’ll feel greater spiritual strength, clarity and certainty.

    If you want to feel uplifted, inspired and self-assured, sapphire will give you the spiritual boost you need.

    Sapphire essence is in Live Your Dreams and Authentic Expression Soul Blends.

    Feelin’ “Yuck & Stuck”? Need to Ground?

    Hibiscus Moon anxiety, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work, science 45 Comments

    Feelin’ “Yuck & Stuck”? Need to Ground?

    Feelin’ tired, floaty, dizzy, spaced out, uncoordinated, lethargic? Feel there’s an energy shift going on?

    So many of you have been telling me about these symptoms that I just had to write this post. There are things we can do, Sweet Pea!

    But 1st…the boring disclaimer… (Crystal healing & therapy should be used with the understanding that it is part of a holistic treatment plan. It’s not meant to take the place of standard medical or psychological treatment, but to accompany & work alongside. The information contained herein is metaphysical in nature & does not claim to heal or cure.) OK, got that outta the way. Besides, you have the power within you to cure yourself of ANYTHING! And we can use crystals as a tool, guide & support. :)

    So, in doing my science-y yet esoteric research & in teaching many Crystalline Cohorts all around our beloved planet, I think I’ve stumbled on to something pretty profound here, My Sweets! Energy shifts ABOUND! There are many reasons why we’re feeling “yuck & stuck”.
    Just a Wee Bit O’ Science & Possible Reasons for the Energy Shift

  • Once every 26,000 years our Mother Earth’s wobbles on her axis. Some say when this happens we get an influx of energy from the central galactic bulge. Jury’s still out on that one as I continue to look for sound evidence (I do  have some but need more for my liking).
  • Then we have some evidence that this wobble & extra pounding of energy may be due to a possible dwarf star twin that our Sun has out there!!
  • In 2010, astronomers confirmed that 2 huge bubbles that emit gamma rays (the most energetic forms of light [or information] that we know of!!) have been discovered ballooning from the center of the Milky Way galaxy. And you might think that was a long time ago. A few years in space isn’t nearly enough time to dissipate such an event. Those babies will be there a while!:
  • Artist depiction of our Milky Way Galaxy, copyright NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center taken with the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope

    Astrophysicist David Spergel, stated, “what we see here are these enormous structures … [that] suggest the presence of an enormous energetic event in the center of our galaxy.” OK, so does this add yet another layer to that influx of energy we’re receiving right now? I assume, yes.

    4. In addition to all of this, I also think the “yuck & stuck” may be due to all the huge Coronal Mass Ejections we’ve been getting from the Sun recently.  Massive energy there!! CME’s are ejections of solar wind with charged atoms & plasma from our Sun. Amazing stuffs to a geek like myself! These effect us & the entire Solar System in all sorts of ways. Check it out: Here’s some more info on CME’s you may appreciate: Every 11 years we cycle into a maximum of this CME activity, we’re heading into a max. now. That means more flares will be coming our way, Crystal Hotties. But we’ve done all this before, nothing we can’t handle. You can learn more about the recent activity here:

    Could the enormous & more numerous CME’s be happening due to the 26,000 cycle or the gamma ray balloons? Or is our Sun simply excited to see its twin again? Maybe. I can’t say, but I think there’s a connection here somewhere. All of these are possibilities.

    Yeah, this is getting a little geeky. I have a tendency to do that. 😛 No apologies. I fully embrace my GEEKI-NESS!

    All of these events are “radiation events” (light, information). So, any of this may be the reason why we have long periods of time where species remain largely unchanged & then BAM! Mass extinctions as well as many new species come on the scene. Energetic shifting of DNA? Scientists do feel this is due to rapid cosmic radiation events….which may be the reason for our “Yuck & Stuck”.

    BTW, I always teach that energy is neutral. So this energy influx is not bad or good. It has no intentions whatsoever. Its how WE perceive energy that causes it to  manifest certain realities for us. So we if we choose to, we can harness this extra energy burst & use it to our benefit…if we so choose. You do have that power.
    Mother Earth:: Giant Crystal Battery
    Our Mama Earth battery charges up with the radiation from the Sun & lightning happening all around our planet all the time. She also holds a nice grounding iron crystal(s) within her core. Pretty cool, huh?

    Now, think of your body, its mostly water + minerals = excellent conductor of electricity (electrons)!! You’re actually a human battery yourself.

    The surface of our planet is covered in free electrons, which are very attracted to us (water + minerals)..if we allow them to be. Problem is, we’re usually well insulated from these free electrons with our rubber soled shoes & carpeted or tiled floors so there’s very little if any direct contact happening & we’re depriving ourselves from Mother Earth’s balancing restorative energies.

    Ancient civilizations were (are) very aware of all of this & knew to monitor the cycles & to stay closely connected to the planet. Being closely in-tune allows us to regulate many bodily functions & feel plugged in. GROUNDED…dissipating any excess energy to the ground.

    Our body’s various vibration frequency can move our body out of our dominant oscillary rate very easily when we experience stress, which we are doing constantly, especially since we are not regularly connecting with Mother Earth to re-balance. Vibrational healing (like crystal healing) oscillates & entrains our  body back to its dominant osciallry rate & helps it to entrain with a more beneficial frequency. You can also go to specific crystals to entrain more grounding.

    Your body recognizes what it needs & if you offer it the tools, your body will heal itself. You’ll get out of “yuck & stuc k”.
    Crystal & Other Recommendations
    I highly recommend keeping grounded & using crystals to do that:

    • Black tourmaline is my go to stone for this. Hematite is also great! In fact, I have what I call My Sacred Grounding Trio: black tourmaline, smokey quartz & hematite!
    • Do lots of Earthing (check out that book on Amazon!) Earthing is absolutely amazing! Get barefoot & go outside!!! The Ultimate in Grounding. Your feet are meant to connect with Mother Earth! That’s why animals are so well grounded & in-tune. They’re always barefoot!
    • Working on your root chakra. Many of us have an unbalanced root that needs attention.
    • Blizzard stone is also great for balancing energies & grounding.
    • Unplug & try to get away from electronic EMF’s
    My hub grounding with black tourmaline & hematite


    The whole family getting in on it!




    Dr. Brian Clement is the medical director of the Hippocrates Health Institute here in West Palm Beach, FL. He agrees that grounding may help people who are hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields. Dr. Clement also states (like I always do!) that electronic EMF is a problem for us.
    Quoted from Dr. Mercola’s site: “[W]e have about four people a year come in here that we call “universal conductors,” he says. “That’s the medical term for it. Dr. Ray, down in Texas, gave it that term. These people are so hypersensitive that they have literally taken the sheathing off their nerves. It’s like having a wire that doesn’t have a covering on it, and you touch it with a pin. Every time they feel the frequency that you and I do not feel, it hits directly to the nerve and creates this biological reaction, this bio-frequency.”
    Dr. Clement uses a form of nutritional grounding. There are many ways to ground. So explore & do some research on your own.

    O-M-G! I could keep writing about this forever…but alas, all my extra energy & writing is going into an online class I’ll be teaching on this eventually.

    People need to know. We’re ll OK, we’re not going nuts & there are ways to make it through, feel better & come out the other side better for it!!

    Now it’s your turn—what’s one successful way you’ve found to get through the “yuck & stuck”?

    Tucson Crystal Memoirs of 2012

    In February, my Sweet Hub & I make an annual trek to Tucson, Arizona to shop for the most exquisite crystals in the world for all my GORGEOUS SPARKLY Crystal Hotties. I have to tell you, this is a pretty Sweet Gig!! Mucho fun!!

    …this year we took a road trip over to Sedona I brought my quartz pendant & we used it to cleanse our chakras while we meditated at the vortexes!!! Hiking up to Bell Rock to find some Sedona red rocks to take home. With Kim Carlsberg on our way to meditate at the vortexes. After our UFO Sky Tour in Sedona with Kim (complete with night vision goggles) we had to hit this diner!! *yes, we did see UFO’s!* Readying for our Pink Jeep tour.

    I am so grateful to the Universe for being able to live out these AMAZING experiences while here in Mother Earth School!

    Have you been to Arizona for the Tucson Gem Show or nay other reason? How did you like it? Any favorite spots, tips, etc.? Please share with the group. We’d love to know!

    Sparkly Blessings!
