Today we have a guest post from one of our Crystalline Cohorts, Kalpa, whose studying to be a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer. She so sweetly sent me this message to tell me all about her crystal grids complete with photos so I asked her if we could share b/c these are just way too gorgeous to keep all to myself. Their power & energy needs to be SHARED with the world! Here’s Kalpa:

Firstly I would like to thank you so very much for all the wonderful info you share. I recently bought your Crystal Grid Templates Package and would like to give some feedback.

Just thought i would share  pics of some of the crystal grids i made recently.  :)

For the Star of David grid (below) I painted the board and then had each section represent an area of my life (the colours relate to feng shui).  The main crystals used were a puffy heart rose quartz, amethyst and clear quartz.  Not to sure , just worked from the heart. Placed little Buddhas in different positions to represent what I wanted in that area as well.

I wasn’t too sure which stones to use for the healing grid (below) as I was looking for something to uplift one’s spirits and assist one with an aching heart.  I ended up using rose quartz and amethyst.

Healing Grid


Once again i felt compelled to paint the base for our Bed of love grid.  I used a wooden heart which i painted a deep fuchsia and sprinkled it with some fairy dust (ohhhhhh how sparkly!).

This grid is absolutely amazing and you can just feel the LOVE pouring from it, stunning!!!! 

I have placed it under our bed and lets just say things have GREATLY improved in the romance department ;)!!


The templates are MAGNIFICENT. I have made the bedroom love one and wow! You can just feel the PURE LOVE flowing once the grid was complete!


Once again my deepest GRATITUDE for the amazing teaching you bring to us.

Bio: “My name is Kalpa and i am a Reiki Master, Reflexologist, Lightearean TM teacher & soon to be a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer ;). I  LOVE working with the ANGELS and Beings of LIGHT. I am a mom to two very special boys who I feel are crystal kids.  They absolutely love crystals and are always willing to help work with them given the opportunity.  They are 6 & 31/2 years old and work with the angels, archangels, mandalas etc.  They have their own Deck of angel cards that they adore! My other passion is cooking…….I love anything creative.  I am truly HONOURED to have been asked to write this blog post and share my grids with all the wonderful souls out there.  May you all continue to be blessed.” You may contact Kalpa via email:

I am so totally grateful to students like sweet Kalpa who are so willing to share with us all. ♥ Mwaaaaah, Kalpa. XOXO

I Had NO IDEA How Powerful Crystals Would Be

I Had NO IDEA How Powerful Crystals Would Be

I’ve been interested in crystals & stones from as far back as I can remember. I was mesmerized by a Smithsonian Museum Crystal book of my father’s at about the age of three. Instead of kid’s books or dolls, I would leaf through that book over & over again, just staring until the pages were worn. I was totally captivated!

Of course, I had no idea at the time what these beautiful objects were. I was just totally intrigued that something so gorgeous & perfect could emerge from the dirt & rough rocks.

And somehow, I knew they were special.

I came back to my crystals & stones later on with some undergraduate & graduate studies in geology, still attracted as ever. Through science teaching career, I succeeded in getting my students just as excited about rocks & crystals as I was! Well, most of them anyway. All the while I played & read & dabbled in the metaphysical aspects of working with crystals.

But how did I end up here? How did I end up guiding others in the use of crystals? *I am asking myself those questions right now.*

How did I decide to take my crystal-soaked dreams & knowledge & pour it all out, sharing all this sparkli-ness with the world? I knew the world wanted to learn & know more b/c sharing was so easy & joyful!

BUT I had no idea how much everyone would gravitate to it!

NO IDEA AT ALL! As you can see from this video I sent out privately to my YouTube friends a bit over 3 years ago:

The ghostly form of this BIG MAMA DREAM started forming  when I started my YouTube Crystal Channel in 2007. I was vlogging & blogging on my old blog about crystals & how I was working with them simply rambling on about my own personal research with them (probably mostly talking to myself) & my crystal healing adventures. But I began to slowly find a like-minded community that I really enjoyed.

It’s all like a growing crystal. I started out kind of like a proto-crystal (a pre-crystal). As the proto-crystal floats around in its crystal growing solution (that would be the Interwebs in my analogy here), it bumps into other solute molecules (more crystal-loving peeps). The solute molecules feel the attractive force of the proto-crystal & they join in (CRYSTALIZATION!) That’s how the crystal begins to grow! Pretty rad, huh? As above, so below!

There was no fear with all this sharing, putting it out there, just sharing…except for the fact that I had to keep my face off the internet (necessary job obligation) so my minor-aged students would not find my entire personal life out on the web.

Had I known how BIG this would get, there may have been some fear but I had NO IDEA!

It was all just a hobby that kept getting bigger & bigger b/c peeps were so magnetically drawn to working with the crystals too!! Just like I was. And people wanted to know more & more & I was MORE THAN HAPPY to talk about them. 😛

I kept getting lots of questions both on the blog & YouTube. I began selling crystals on Etsy in 2009, doing live crystal healing classes for groups in my local area in 2010 & eventually  decided to do online crystal classes in early 2011 to answer all the frequently asked questions I was getting.

Now it’s all evolved into the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy. Once I figured out what was happening I started steering the ship to keep it going in the right direction. I hired the help of business coaches (b/c goodness knows I had no idea!) & I WORKED my crystal grids for all they were worth (which is quite a lot!)

This whole ride has been so fulfilling & joyful & abundant for me. But I am repeatedly told, “Its only just begun.” Whaaaaaaa!*fastening seat belt*

All I know is that I am doing exactly what I was meant to be doing in complete alignment with my soul’s purpose. Its a feeling deep down inside. That’s a really good feeling that I hope YOU get to experience or are experiencing right now.

Go be a beaming-sparkly-love-thang today!!

The Crystal Healer Interviews: Suzanna

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, science 4 Comments

This is Sweet Soul, Suzanna. She’s a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer & I’m so excited to have her post on the blog today. She has so much to say & show us!!
What brought you to the world of crystal healing?
I have been lovingly collecting crystals for as long as I can remember.  It started with beach pebbles when I was a toddler and grew from there!

My beloved late Granddad was also a huge influence to me; growing up he would take me to metaphysical fairs and treat me to little tumbled stones which he’d present to me in small brown envelopes with the properties  he’d hand-written on the front.  I treasure these dearly and know that he would be extremely proud that I carried on my crystal journey.

What made you decide to become a Certified Crystal Healer?
The energies of crystals have always intrigued and excited me but other than sense their properties and admire their beauty, I’ve never known exactly what to do with them – until I took this course!  Now I feel like all my life I’ve been collecting the tool kit and gaining the knowledge of how and why they work means I can progress to working with them to benefit myself and others.


What is your favorite crystal(s) & why?
Oh this is a tough question!

I find myself drawn to particular crystals at different times, depending on what I’m needing, but one crystal that I can never get enough of is moonstone.  I was given my first piece in a pendant by my parents for my sixteenth birthday and I’ve loved it ever since.  There is something ethereal and magical about moonstone and – besides being gorgeous – I feel it’s the perfect stone for women to bring balance and a sense of calm into their lives.

Amethyst and citrine are also dear to my heart because they are willing to help you with just about anything.

 What do others in your life think about this path that you’re on?
My close friends and family have always been extremely supportive about my passion for stones as it’s been so entwined with my identity for as long as anyone can remember.

Embarking on this course has given me the opportunity to discuss my path with others who might not have known about it and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  Many have been curious to learn more about crystal healing and what it entails and I’ve even been surprised to learn how into crystals some of my friends are when I never even knew!
What is something new that you’ve learned about crystals that you didn’t know before you took the course?
The science! 

I have read so many wonderful books over the years about the properties of crystals but no where have I seen accessible information about how they work at a scientific level.  Learning about the electromagnetic fields and vibrational frequencies of stones (and people!) has answered so many of my questions about what it is that I can actually feel and the science behind why crystals are so beneficial for healing was explained beautifully.

What was/is your favorite part of the whole experience so far?
The scientific explanations presented with the study material and the various sources they are derived from are by far the most valuable element of this course in my opinion as I am studying for a Bachelor of Science degree along with a Certificate of Contemporary Science.
Up until  taking this course I’ve always found it hard to bridge the gap between a more alternative side of looking at things and what seemed like ‘cold hard’ science.  This course has opened up a whole new way of syncing my spiritual side and my more logical mind together and has alerted me to the fact that science is just a rational explanation of the magic that we experience in the world!

 What are your BIG DREAMS now that you have graduated?
My ultimate goal is to work with the energies of these gifts of mother earth to benefit others because I feel it is my calling and one that I feel truly blessed with the opportunity to pursue.

My next step on the crystal healing journey is to construct a website where people new to this wonderful world can come to learn more about the benefits of crystal healing.  I have big plans for this online crystal haven and is due to launch at the end of the year! (bookmark it now!)

It’s so exciting that completing the course doesn’t mark the end of my crystal journey but the beginning of a more educated and richer experience and one that I hope can be shared with others.

Do you have any advice for anyone else who is considering this path?
If it’s something that you’re drawn to do and are able to explore – dive in!

Crystals are so much more than pretty ornaments; they have energy and soul just waiting to be tapped into.

My honest advice to anyone considering this path is this: invest in your knowledge.   The more you learn the more value you will get out of working with your crystal collection.  I’m so glad I took the plunge with this course, I’ve loved every moment of it and the knowledge I have gained has allowed me to finally unlock the true potential of my stones!

Enjoy your journey and wherever it leads you :-)


I’m a part-time student with The Open University, living just on the edge of The Yorkshire Dales, England.  Besides my crystal collection I’m devoted to my fiancé and my large and adorable brood of pets.


I’m currently constructing The Crystal Nymph which will be a welcoming, crystal-based haven of a website due to ‘go live’ at the end of the year If you’d like to keep up to date with the site’s progression or my personal shenanigans I can be found on Twitter at @thecrystalnymph or @andthensuzsaid




How cool & ADORABLEZ is Suzanna? I just love her. And thank you for all these gorgeous sparkly crystal photos, Suzanna. I ooooh’d + ahhhhh’d over all of them!

Crystals for Fertility & Pregnancy

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, energy work 22 Comments

Disclaimer: Et viola; the boring disclaimer:  I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. Crystals for fertility should be used as a compliment to & not as a replacement for regular medical care & consultations.

In working with crystal energies over the years, I’ve found, there are certain life situations that peeps would like help with & I get asked about again & again.

Fertility is one of them.

There are many ways to work with crystals for fertility & pregancy.

Here’s is a cute little crystal mojo bag I intuitively put together for women wanting to become pregnant or for Mamas-to-Be.  I included 4 very powerful tumbled stones to assist with pregnancy & enhance the energies of fertility, whether you’re looking to be more fertile or want some good juju throughout the pregnancy.

Crystals oscillate certain vibrational frequencies & these particular ones are the precise frequencies to have around during pregnancy. The ancients have known this for millennium & we are lucky enough to still have this knowledge at our disposal. I can’t guarantee anything but I will say that I get great comments & news from this little kit all the time:

Crystals for Fertility & Pregnancy
You can very easily put together a little crystal kit like this for yourself or a friend. I like a cute little pastel colored velour protective pouch & include jade, moonstone, rose quartz & unakite.

  • Jade assists with fertility & child birth
  • Moonstone is referred to as a “woman’s healing stone”, traditionally used for feminine healing & balancing of the female hormones & cycles. Its also the BOMB-DIGGITY to have around during the birthing process, so I’m told since I’ve never had the pleasure myself.
  • Rose Quartz; this one is known as a “bubble bath for the soul”. Ahhhhhhh. Its great for calming Mama & is known to powerfully increase fertility!
  • Unakite is wonderful for harmonizing & balancing the reproductive system & is also a great aid for a healthy pregnancy.

So there you have my crystals for fertility combo. Now what do you do with them?

Simply rest with the stones on your belly or over your ovaries for 10-15 minutes a day or you may hold them while meditating. Try to visualize the baby inside you & your healthy pregnancy the whole time. You may also like to keep this little kit in a pocket, bra, in your purse or pillow case while you sleep just to keep the good vibes nearby all the while.
OR you can do my Fertility/Healthy Pregnancy Body Layout:

  • Place the jade in your palms
  • Rose quartz at your feet & heart
  • Moonstone at the ovaries
  • Unakite below your feet (The Earth Star Chakra)
  • Simply relax & meditate as described above for 10-15 min. a daily in this layout

The key is to RELAX though…not OBSESS in your meditation. If you’re obsessing & worrying that will be totally counter-productive.

Worrying is like praying for what you don’t want!

Guided meditations can help greatly with that.

  • Great meditation to do while pregnant by
  • Fertility meditation to GET pregnant

    My wish is that all those that want to be WILL BE Fertile Myrtles!! But no over-populating, OK? 😉

    Fertile Blessings of ALL KINDS!!

    Crystal Healing & Robert Downey, Jr.

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Crystals, spirituality 26 Comments

    Hey Crystal Hotties!

    Perhaps 6 months ago I shared on my Facebook Biz Page some articles & video clip links on Robert Downey Jr. & how he’s heavily into crystal healing.

    Well, I’ve been turning the Internets upside down this morning while trying to finally finish this draft article that I’ve had floating around since. I’m looking for the video snippet interviews that Robert Downey, Jr. did with his wife explaining how they’re into crystal healing & how they used particular stones to help her with her pregnancy. I haven’t been able to find it. :(

    Oooo, it was good stuffs! Well, I’ll just post this & hope that info finds it way back to me by putting this out there.

    Now, a few months later, its all mysteriously disappeared…& one of my super powers is being the ULTIMATE researcher. So this is some serious stealth stuff to defy my amazing abilities!! LOL!
    If any of you out there find these video clips I speak of, please let me know! I’d love to add them to this post!!
    Anyhow, we do still have this news on the crystal healing home front: Mr. Downey has been seen traveling with a mystical crystal healing guru who carries a briefcase full of crystals to help keep negativity at bay while he works. Must be nice!!

    Gweneth Paltrow was asked about Mr. Downey & his crystals & here’s what she had to say:

    “I love all his quirks and his crystals. He’s always laying crystals around…testing the vibes and with all his witch doctors and taking vitamins and stuff. It’s fun to be around.”

    Here’s the story that went out on the wire all about that

    Also, Mr. & Mrs. Downey both were wearing necklaces adorned with healing stones of what looks like perhaps lapis lazuli or sodalite (blue) along with tiger’s eye for him & perhaps jade or green aventurine for her. You can very clearly see the couple wearing their crystals here.

    Some have told me that these are known as i-ching pendants.

    Well, Kudos to them for being so connected & I hope it truly helps with whatever they’re trying to achieve in their lives.

    Oooodles of Crystal Blessings!!

    Is Crystal Collecting Ethical?

    Hibiscus Moon Everyday/Personal Stuffs, science 26 Comments

    Is Crystal Collecting Ethical?

    Working in the crystal biz, I’ve been presented with ethics related questions regarding crystals & being a both a student & teacher of geology, I’ve had the opportunity to ask & explore the topic deeply.

    I take this very seriously so this will be more of a serious post Sweet Peas.

    For years I’ve found myself having to defend mineral collecting against environmental activists (of which I consider myself to be one). some of whom claim that crystal & mineral collecting is causing major destruction to our planet while also related to slavery + poor living conditions .

    I think there may be some  confusion between mineral & crystal collecting VS. mining for precious gems (diamonds, rubies, emeralds)  & industrial ore (coal, aluminum, tin, etc). That stuff is not what I’m speaking of when we speak of mineral & crystal collecting AKA “specimen mining”.

    In my extensive research I’ve found that specimen mining usually has little or no DIRECT impact on our planet. Often times, specimens are collected as a by product to ore mining where mines have been dug to get at coal, copper, aluminum, gold, etc. for other items our society seems to have no problem with. In addition, some of what is sold on the market are simply recycled specimens from estate sales. The ULTIMATE in recycling!
    There is a HUGE difference here.
    Industrial ore mining & mining for precious gems does require heavy blasting, strip mining & sometimes leads to poor living or working conditions.  Slavery comes into play most definitely with conflict minerals. What the heck are conflict minerals


    If you’re concerned about human conditions in relation to the mining of minerals then the very minerals used in our computers & cell phones are the ones we need to concern ourselves with:

    I do try to choose a tech company that makes a conscious effort to minimize its use of conflict minerals. Are your electronics conflict free? None are 100%. Please check yours here now & if they’re not please email your tech company directly from the site to make your voice heard! This is so easy to do, doesn’t cost you a dime & is a great way for us to initiate changes.

    Then make sure you vote with your $ next time you need to purchase a computer or cell phone.

    Vote with the $$!!

    So, now let’s educate. This is what goes on in a specimen mine:

    • This is what mining for quartz looks like at Ron Coleman’s mine in Arkansas
    • Mining for quartz in Georgia
    • Larger Quartz operation in Brazil
    • Mining for aquamarine & emerald in Mexico
    • Aquamarine in Africa
    • Digging for amethyst in Kuridala Queensland, Australia
    • Digging for Topaz in Utah
    • Mining for quartz in Brazil

    Yes, these methods cause some scarring & not all specimen mining is as kind to the Earth as this. Sometimes explosives are used to crack a stubborn rock. However, we’re not talking about massive strip mining & its usually just meters of rock & not very deep. Specimen mining really doesn’t have much of an impact on the environment, but commercial mining for ore is a totally different story. Then there’s the subjective question of “what is damage?” Of course, there’ll be a certain amount of digging or rock breaking. Nature would do the same thing through ice wedging & erosion. Or given enough time, much more destructive Mama Earth forces.

    What about farming & urbanization? I feel those are much bigger disturbances to our planet…however less unavoidable.

    Yes, child labor  & poor work conditions may be a problem  in countries where there’s less regulation due to weak or corrupt governments.  And sometimes there is no way for us to know who exactly mined a crystal or picked our food for that matter! Unless we were there or did it ourselves! Yep, that is a problem sometimes but its true for anything is it not?

    However,  war & rape going on over crystal mining? No.

    For our ipads & cell phones? Yes!!!

    We don’t like to hear that do we? But we can change this. Please let these tech companies know that this is not OK.

    Here’s a recent interview I did with Joanna DeVoe on the topic. I thank her for doing this & for spurring me on to finally finish this blog post! As you’ll see…I’m really passionate about this!

    Now, not all ore mining companies are BAD. Some do make a good effort to generate sustainable employment for the communities they operate in as well as have to meet strict requirements to back fill & reclaim the land they’ve destroyed….but, again…this is industrial ore minesnot specimen mining. Sometimes, in a war-torn & weary area, specimen mining is one of the only legit income opportunities the people there can hope for.

    Then we have THE ROCK CYCLE. Guess what happens to crystal specimens that aren’t collected? Mother Earth recycles them. Of course, I’m not saying grab all you can b/c they’ll all be destroyed if you don’t but I do feel that we can be free to work with these very special crystal healing tools. They’ll eventually go back to the Mama Earth’s kitchen & more will be created no matter how powerful we think we are. 
    Lesson in The Rock Cycle

     So, please get involved. Inform others about Conflict Minerals. Email your tech companies & tell them what you think. Is your techy stuff as conflict free as you can make it? Do you agree or disagree with me? I’m always open to hearing other sides…as long as we keep it mature &  respectful. I’d love to hear about your efforts or what you think!!

    Crystal Blessings,
