Sharing Some Crystal Love

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness 10 Comments


From time to time I love to share all the lovely crystal discoveries I come across. So, in the next couple weeks, I’ll be sharing a bit of stumbled-upon-sparkliness that I thought you might like.

Sometimes I do that by sharing it with my Crystalline Cohorts in my courses or…if the timing is just right, I get to share about them in a video. There are so many ways to work with & learn about crystals so this sharing can go on FOREVER. It’s an infinite playground of sparkliness!

In today’s featured vid, I show you how one of our own Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Masters has found a way to weave crafting in with chunky crystal jewelry & chakra pouches…PLUS a cute faith-based t-shirt line…

  • The featured pendant & chakra pouches are created by Crystalline Goodness.
  • The t-shirt is from Your Faith Looks Familiar and they have a YouTube Channel here. Their moot is “Believe & let believe”. Not a crystal product but…I like that motto.

Now, I would love to hear from you! In the spirit of spreading the love around…what are some new & unique crystal products you’ve come across lately? Share it with our Crystal Hottie Community in the comments below. Yes, this week in this post I am encouraging LINKS GALORE! Go right ahead.

…Also, please let me know if you’d like to see more Crystal-Related Review Videos in the comments below.

Mucho Crystal Blessings!

    Does My Crystal Not Want to Work with Me?

    Hibiscus Moon energy work 2 Comments

    Anoint crystals

    So maybe you’ve experienced this…

    You try to wear or work with a crystal but it keeps getting lost or falling off & or it even breaks. Multiple times. Is this a message for you?

    What does this mean?

    Well, this week I answer this common question for a Crystal Hottie my new BFF; it can mean several different things.
    Does My Crystal Not Want to Work with Me?

    As I discussed in the vid, it can mean:

    • maybe this is the wrong time for you to be working with this stone, timing is off (to test this out, try working with different crystal pieces of the same exact type)
    • It may just need to be vibrationally recalibrated. It needs a re-tuning (what some call “cleansing”)
    • It’s not ever going to be a vibrational match for you

    I also mention some things you can try to prevent these sorts of things from happening:

    • Ease into working with the new stone more slowly or more gently than trying to force yourself to wear it all day long right off the bat (meditate with it for 5-10 min./day first, then try sleeping with it in your pillow case)
    • Anoint (aka consecrate) the piece before wearing it; this is a sort of little ritual prayer you can do to really create a vibrational bond & make the piece your own. I recommend doing this only after your pretty certain (from doing the above step) that this is a good vibrational match for you at this time. There are soooo many ways to do this, but a simple method is to do this in your sacred space (if you need ideas on how to create a sacred space grab my Free eKit here) take a tiny drop of anointing oil, essential oil or holy water (check that the stone’s Mohs Hardness is a 5 or more so as not to damage it) & rub it on the piece while stating a favorite affirmation or prayer. Then leave it in your sacred space for 7 days
    • Re-tune it when you notice anything funky happening. Here’s that video of mine where I teach about retuning crystals

    This was a really fun question to answer + a got a new BFF out of it! 😉

    I’d love for you to also call me up on my voicemail set up just for this purpose…video Q & A time!! I can’t guarantee it but if you have a good question I just may feature it in an upcoming video. Plus I love to hear your voices & connect with you in that way.  :) *Please note: this voice mail is not checked regularly & is not a way to get in touch with me or my Sparkle Support Team. You can do that on our Contact Page.*

    Then…if you have some other tips or stories to share here in our Crystal Hottie Community, please tell us in the comments below. I love that we can all learn from each other.

    Remember to always choose your crystal or gemstone jewelry by intuition. Your heart & inner knowing is usually right, so learn to tap into that, Sparkle Bomb. You can never really go wrong there.

    Last but not least ~  share this blog post with your friends. I love to get this info out there far & wide with those who “get” energy & love to work with it, not against it. ♥

    Namaste & much love to you!


    P.S. If you’re interested in enrolling in my Certified Crystal Healer Course, you can find out more + get on my Wait List here.

    COLOR OF THE YEAR: RADIANT ORCHID ~ 2014 ~ Sugilite + Lepidolite

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness, Crystal Healing, dreaming, protection 10 Comments


    I love color! How about you?

    So, last year I started a tradition of pairing up a crystal video to match up with Pantone’s Color of the Year. To explain sort of what that’s about this is from the Pantone website:

    Since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute™ has been designating a Color of the Year to express in color what is taking place in the global zeitgeist.

    Pretty cool, right? You can find out more about that here.

    I decided to create a NEW color collage of my own…with crystals! YOU LIKE?

    In today’s featured video I go over 2 very specific stones that I felt aligned very well with “Radiant Orchid”.

    COLOR OF THE YEAR: RADIANT ORCHID ~ 2014 ~ Sugilite + Lepidolite

    More Crystal Info + Another that goes with the 2014 Color of the Year

    • A potassium sodium lithium iron manganese aluminum silicate mineral (wooooo!)
    • Mohs Hardness: 6-6.5
    • Chakra Alignments: 3rd Eye, Crown + Transpersonal
    • Assists with spiritual protection, enhances dreams, purifies the aura


    • A potassium lithium aluminum silicate
    • Mohs Hardness: 2.5-3
    • Chakra Alignments: Heart, 3rd Eye & Crown
    • An emotional & mental soother & balancer, calming, assists in reducing stress, brings a calm, serene sense of well-being


    • Very complex element content. For you Chemistry Freaks (that’s a MAJOR compliment BTW!!) here’s the formula: (K,Sr) 15-16 (Ca,Na) 32 [Si 6 O 11 (O,OH) 6 ] 2 [Si 12 O 18 (O,OH) 12 ] 2 [Si 17 O 25 (O,OH) 18 ] 2 (OH,F) 4 · ~3H 2 O  …so there’s that.
    • Mohs Hardness: 5-6
    • Chakra Alignment: 3rd Eye, Crown + Transpersonal Chakras
    • Excellent for de-toxing of inner negative energy, psychic ability stimulator, assists with being/becoming a more effective energy healer, provides protection, assists us in figuring out our life purpose & then to walk that path

    Here are the links to the videos I mention in this week’s feature:

    • 2013 Color of the Year: Emerald
    • Pineal Gland Video, Part 1
    • Pineal Gland Video, Part 2

    OK, so now I’d like you to please post below in the comments…what other crystals & stones do you think would also make a great vibrational match for Radiant Orchid?

    Sugar Pop, thanks for watching & sharing your special brand of glitter-genius here w/ all the rest of the Crystal Hotties!

    BTW, some dude on my FB page said he thought I was excluding the males from our community by referring to us all as Crystal Hotties.

    Ummm, since when is a “Hotttie” gender-specific? Frank (my husbo) will take great offense to that since he is the OFFICIAL HEAD CRYSTAL HOTTIE! 😉

    So, please know; male, female, transgender & all shades in between…we’re all Crystal Hotties!

    OK, much love & Sparkle- Bombs!
