Autoimmune Diseases, Lupus, Fibromyalgia

…or maybe you’re Mom is really on her game when it comes to autoimmune diseases, lupus, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. & DID tell you about this stuff! But with these dis-eases on the rise…I think its time to discuss it here on my blog.

WebMD.com very generally sums up an autoimmune dis-ease like this:

general, lingering symptoms, means your immune system is attacking healthy tissue.

BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. Crystals should be used as a compliment to & not as a replacement for regular medical care & consultations. Let me also warn you that this is a link-rich post. I have lots of good resources here to refer you to. ALL of the products that I recommend are products that I have personally used & HIGHLY recommend. Some of the links below are affiliate links that will earn me a commission if you purchase through them, but you can certainly purchase through a different link. Just wanted you to know that I wouldn’t have them here if I didn’t totally believe in them. :)

OK, let’s get on with it.

Like I said, it seems that crystal-related questions about these auto-immune illnesses or dis-eases is on the up-tick for me. In fact…Dr. Mercola also notices the trend, stating:
Asthma, hay fever, eczema, food allergies, lupus, multiple sclerosis and other immune- mediated afflictions are all on the rise.

According to some estimates, allergies and diseases of the immune system have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled in the last few decades, with some studies indicating that more than half of the U.S. population has at least one clinically diagnosable allergy.
I have several theories on why that is. But I digress…

So let’s get to addressing these various issues.

Bare in mind that I don’t usually rely on crystal healing as a stand-alone treatment, but as a handy-dandy & quite effective compliment. I feel strongly that every aspect of our health can benefit from a multi-layered approach & not rely on 1 method alone. Just as with music, several harmonics (vibrational frequencies of varying kinds) all resonating together, is found to be very pleasing…on many different levels. :)
Here’s the common Q:
I have some clients or people I know with various autoimmune dis-eases or illnesses such as allergies, lupus, fibromyalgia &  Multiple Sclerosis. I’m wondering what crystals or treatments would be most beneficial?

*Before I give my answer here I, again, want to be very clear & drive a few points home regarding looking for the “Magic Pill” in a crystal-cure. So you can click on this here link or watch the intro to this video…OR BOTH!*

Here’s my A:
Crystals can really enhance an overall holistic approach to treating any auto-immune dis-ease, symptoms or illness. You can also easily merge them with other therapies. For instance:

  • Dr. Mercola recommends allowing yourself to get DIRTY! Quit all this germ-o-phobia. And I throw in Earthing along with this. Get connected back to nature, get some dirt under your finger & toenails & quit using Purell every other second. I use grounding crystals along with my Earthing techniques & this has been very beneficial to my students & clients. In fact, I’ve often referred to my friend & doctor, Dr. Koniver’s Free Earthing eBook to introduce peeps to this whole concept.
Doing some grounding work with my Grounding Crystals. :)
  • There is usually some inflammation going on along with these dis-eases. Inflammation can be decreased when working with larimar & blue chalcedony. You can mix some anti-inflammatory herbs in with this: boswellia & willow bark. How about a gem elixir tea? Both of these stones are non-toxic so safe to create a gem elixir tea with. :)
  • Regular use of a Biomat has been found to benefit the treatment of chronic pain & autoimmune conditions, including but not limited to neuropathy, fibromyalgia, back pain, Lyme disease & arthritis. Yes, these mats are expensive, but many times a professional Crystal Healer will have 1 on hand that you can book some time with, making it much more affordable. Ask around. You’ll so ENJOY your time on a mat!
  • Thyme, Eucalyptus & Bergamot are just a few essential oils that have been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation. I find essential oils & crystals to be perfect partners! How about a mojo bag with 1-3 suggested crystals from this blog post, some boswellia herb & 5-10 drops of essential oil of choice to carry around, or keep in the car, at work & in your sleeping pillow? Or use these oil in an oil burner while conducting a crystal healing session for a client or if you’re the client, ask your Certified Crystal Healer to use these in your treatment.
  • And of course, sufficient sleep, stress reduction techniques, exercise & diet are all a MUST.

Specific Recommendations
Now, here are some stone prescriptions to use for specific illnesses.

Again, keep in mind, this is in conjunction with a sound holistic health plan. You can use these stones in a body layout during a crystal healing session. (You can find a practitioner near you & request that they use these stones in your treatment.) *Hey! The stress relief that you’ll experience from a session alone will start you on a positive path of healing*. You can also choose to meditate with these stones, create a mojo bag to carry with you, create a crystal grid…I could go on & on here but let me try to keep it somewhat simple for the sake of this post:

  • Multiple Sclerosis – I like to recommend working with natrolite, eudialyte, astrophyllite & green jade. A combo of 3 of those would be great.
  • Lupus – My strong recommendations are: honey calcite, titanium quartz & silver. Now the silver can be in jewelry mineral form (not many of us are carrying chunks or bars around) or you can actually ingest it as colloidal silver (please do your own research on this, but even Dr. Oz is on board, dude!)
This is the kind we use in our household. Please consult with your own doctor on when & how much to take.
  • Fibromyalgia – friend & highly respected fellow crystal author, Phillip Permutt suggests this combo: abalone shell, amethyst, selenite & rutilated quartz & again, my students & clients have found it to be very effective. I also find that honey calcite is very effective. Choose a combo of 3 for best results.

A Few Words From Those Who Know the Power of  Crystals

If you know someone who is suffering from some sort of auto-immune dis-ease, how about making them a little mojo bag of crystals or make them up a tea blend & include 1 tumbled stone mentioned here or share this blog post with them, I know they will appreciate it! And if you have some remedies of your own, please do share them below!

Healthy Crystal Blessings!

  • crystals to include in your kit
  • how to choose a crystal to work with
  • how to start out working with them
  • what to do when you’re not connecting with your crystals
  • the ethics behind crystal mining
  • PLUS so much more!

How & Why Crystals have Healing Properties

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, energy work, science 4 Comments

blog

Ah, THIS is the question I’m asked to defend over & over. And I love doing it! So let’s talk some crystal energy science, shall we?

“Why or how do crystals help heal us either physically, emotionally or spiritually?”

My fav way to answer this question is to show how science & metaphysics agree with each other. YES, you read that right…I said “agree with each other”…as well as discuss all the ways that science is now finally catching up to metaphysics.

“Science and religion are not enemies. There are some things that science is simply too young to understand.”

~(quote from Dan Brown’s book Angels & Demons).

Oh yeah, us humans…we think we’re so superior. We tend to think that we have power or dominion over “lesser” kingdoms, such as minerals. Don’t we? However, when we  compare the 2; humans are relatively short-lived & quite vibrationally unsteady, therefore easily energetically influenced due to our emotions, which are simply energy, you know.

I get much deeper into this in my course, but we can do a pretty good summary here. See, our body has a dominant (or average) vibrational frequency which is not very stable…in fact, it’s quite easily influenced. That frequency can get out of whack when we experience any type of stress. Actually, since we are connected & influenced by everything, including crystals & stones, our unstable vibrational nature makes it so that anything can interact with our energy field & can leave its mark!

Well, I’ve got GREAT NEWS for you:

The abilities to heal or change your perception of reality & vibrate at your desired frequencies are already present within the cells of your body just waiting to vibe up with the correct frequencies!

I promise not to bore you with too much physics! But a teeny little bit will really help you to understand the reasons why the crystals and stones work. (I couldn’t help but to sneak a bit of that in here. Forgive me?) There’s another reason why I want to push a bit of physics in here; it has been noted that knowing “why” something works really boosts the effectiveness of a process’ abilities. And we like that!

You’ve heard this before:

Where thought goes, energy flows. Quantum physics has proven this. Our conscious thoughts directly influence the actions of subatomic particles. In fact this is the whole premise of physics’ famous Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle (yes, this existed before Breaking Bad & Walter White…let’s not go there or you’ll wake up my dormant yet WILD addiction to that series). So the seemingly harmless act of OBSERVING or THINKING about the subatomic experiments influences the velocity & outcome of the particles! Yeah! I know!

So, see where I’m going here?

Simply by observing or thinking we are quite literally creating our own reality & perceptions with our thought patterns. (Hang on…I’ll get to the crystal again in a sec!) It’s important to realize that our entire physical universe is made up of pure energy & vibration. In fact, Einstein determined that energy & matter are actually 1 in the same. E=mc2, Baby! Translated into reg. human speak this means that energy equals matter (multiplied by the speed of light…don’t get too hung up on that part…that’s a little mathematical trick).

So crystals are matter which equals energy. And crystals have vibrations just like everything else does.  See…here are the crystals. 😉

Different forms of matter & energy vibrate at different vibrational frequencies. These different frequencies depend on different things like the crystal’s specific molecular composition, size, thickness & color (light frequencies).

What actually makes a crystal A CRYSTAL is that its molecules are arranged in a fixed, regularly repeating geometric pattern. Since they are so geometrically perfect, they have the lowest possible state of disorganization & easily maintain their base frequency, unlike us. So they have the unique ability to entrain the energies around them.

Now, let me say it again here (I’m always saying this but I feel like I cannot say it enough);  crystals & stones are tools & supports & work best if they’re not left to do all the work all by themselves. The person needing the support needs to put their intentions towards their goal. Where thought goes, energy flows. Or as the Buddhist message says, “Reality exists only where we create focus.”

Stones & crystals can make this work so much easier.  They act as the guides, tools that support & amplify your clear intentions. Of course, if you cannot resonate with this information & think this will not work for you then that is, most likely, exactly what you will manifest. (I have seen some exceptions!)

Just remember, Lima Bean…your intention & your intuition are the most powerful factors of whether crystals & stones will work for you!

Your Turn: Help me to encourage others to look to alternative healing & lifestyle methods! Throwing some science at them usually makes the most stubborn sit up & listen. Please share this blog post about to spread the word & then share your story in the comments below!

Spring/Easter Sparkly Crystal Geodes!

Hibiscus Moon science 2 Comments

crystal geode

It’s almost Easter so I think it’s time to for some Crystal Hottie Egg Shell Geode GROWIN’ again!!

Sound like fun? It is!
Grow Your Own Crystal Geodes!
looks just like amethyst, doesn’t it??!

About 6 months ago I posted a photo on my FB page of 1 of my recent crystal growing specimens. You see, the Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Masters grow crystals as part of their course ohhhm-work & so I decided to show them a super-fun & popular lab experiment I used to do with my teenage science students. This version I’m presenting here is really watered down so no long essays on crystallography necessary. LUCKY YOU! I showed these off on my FB page & proceeded to get a ton of questions asking how to grow these.

I had no idea so many Crystal Hotties would get into this?

So, I filmed a how-to video & created a downloadable pdf giving you step by step instructions on how to grow your very own. (WARNING: the maker of this video has a major obsession with the TV show Breaking Bad!) 😉

I feel it’s really important to also get to know our crystals in a different way; to learn how & why they grow & just how Mama Earth cooks them up in her kitchen! And I love when Crystal Hotties post photos of their geode creations on my FB page.

Geodes can take thousands or even millions of years to grow…but this grow-your-own variation will only take a couple of days, thank goodness. This is a great activity to do with kids while also giving us a little insight into the science behind the magical geology. And you’ll end up with some drop-dead gorgeous crystals in the end! Learning can be tons o’ fun when you approach it the right way. 😉

So instead of a basket full of plain colored eggs, how about a basket full of colorful & glittery egg shell geodes?

Click here to grab your step by step pdf instructions & get crackin! (Get it??!)

Please, please, please…if you do this project will you share either your photos or video with me & the rest of our Crystal Community on my FB page or share you story in the comments below? I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!!

Sparkly Spring Blessings,

Crystals + 2014 Eclipse Energies

Hibiscus Moon moon 3 Comments

My stellar beam calcite

OK, time to do an updated lunar eclipse and crystals post for 2014 & just in time for our 1st eclipse in April. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love to ride our cosmic local Solar System energies. I also LOVE to layer various types of similar vibrational frequencies together for lovely harmony…and that, of course, includes crystals!
Big eclipses, Big letting go…Exciting stuffs!
What makes the upcoming eclipses really exciting is that most of these eclipses will be visible form North America (bit selfish, I know).

So the party gets started on April 15th for a spectacular midnight eclipse! As, I’ve mentioned before eclipse usually occur in pairs of lunar & solar. This year’s set is known as a lunar eclipse tetrad; a series of 4 consecutive real-deal full eclipses occurring about 6 months apart (some of these flowing into 2015). I say real-deal, b/c these aren’t partial eclipse but the FULL-ON ENERGY. So put your seat belts on. And…the really unique thing is that with this tetrad; all visible somewhere in the US. 
Upcoming Eclipses
Here’s what’s on tap for our 2014 eclipses (click on links to see NASA maps showing where on Mama Earth the eclipse will be visible):

  • 2014 Apr 15: Total Lunar Eclipse – Lunar eclipse happens when our Mother Earth moves in between the Sun & the Moon & blocks the reflection of the Sun’s moonstone

    light on the moon with Mama Earth’s shadow. I feel the energies of a Lunar Eclipse are the same as a really powerful Full Moon. High amplitude, no doubt. For me, the Full Moon is a time to be grateful for what the last lunar cycle has brought about & to take a look at my plans & evaluate any necessary changes for the next cycle. Lunar Eclipses are a good energy to bring about change Crystals to Work with: moonstone, fluorite, selenite

  • 2014 Apr 29: Annular Solar Eclipse – This type of eclipse happens when the Moon is a wee bit closer to the Sun leaving a bright ring of light around the Moon (the corona). Solar eclipses can only appear during a new My stellar beam calcite

    moon & in the day time. This means that you are working with new moon energy (this is said to be great for BIG TIME cleansing, purging, ending things & letting go). Good time to clean out closets & such. This sort of eclipse has less amplitude than a Total Solar Eclipse. If you feel good about that then work with it & give it a go. Click on the link for a NASA map of where you need to be to see this event. Crystals to Work with: herkimer diamond, sunstone, citrine, stellar beam calcite

  • 2014 Oct 08: Total Lunar Eclipse – same as above
  • 2014 Oct 23: Partial Solar Eclipse – In this type of solar eclipse, the Moon only partly covers the Sun as seen from Mama Earth. So, the energy from this event is the same as an Annular Solar Eclipse (see above)

Resources
For some great tips on how to watch a total lunar eclipse, click here.

For a little more of a science lesson on the eclipses & working with their energy please take a look at my older blog post here. I also explain in that post why I’m leery to work with Solar Eclipses. However, I ♥ to work with Lunar eclipse energy since it can make for some supremely special edition gem elixirs difficult to replicate!

And no worries if you can’t visibly view some or any of these eclipses due to where you are on Mama Earth at that time…it’s not necessary to SEE the eclipse for its energy to still affect you. :)
Here are just a few ways I like to work with the Lunar Eclipse and Crystals:

  • Concoct special Gem Elixir blends
  • Crystal Grids
  • Program a special quartz crystal
  • Put together a lunar energy crystal mojo kit

Are you planning on working with the Eclipse Energies of any sort? I’d all love to hear what you’re up to so please comment below. :)

Lunar Blessings!

The Magic Pill…or Crystal?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing 25 Comments

magic pill

One question I often get is:

“How can I use crystals to help heal this, that, or the other ailment?”

At first…I used just give the one-off crystal recommendation.

And then I realized…well, no, I knew…I knew all along that I wasn’t giving the entire picture. That I wasn’t giving the whole story & it was really doing people a huge disservice. My crystal recommendations were usually given in a short YouTube comment or Facebook post & that’s all that a post really allowed for most of the time; and people on smartphones or whatever don’t really want to read anything longer than that anyway so I just recommended this or that stone. Plus, people came right out & said it; they really just wanted a 1 crystal answer. Yeah. If I got too complicated in my suggestions, they often told me this!

Everybody’s looking for the magic pill…or the magic crystal in this instance!

Well, Chick Pea: I no longer do that.

For a while now,  I’ve prefaced my “crystal-cure” answers by stating that crystal healing is part of a sound holistic healing program. In other words, the crystals are not to be relied on all on their own for any sort of cure.

“Holistic” means that it takes into account all the different aspects that come into play with healing; physically as well as emotionally…and I’m talking about everything. This includes not just your body, but mind & spirit as well.

Crystals are great b/c they allow us to tap into similar vibrational frequencies (or healing frequencies) more efficiently. Not to say that it can’t be done without the crystals. Of course, it can. You can do everything & anything! It’s all possible. 

But crystals, as I always say, are here to assist us as a healing tool & support; allowing us to do the required work using less energy.

That’s the physics definition of a tool, you know!

Yep. You I used to teach this in my physics lessons all the time…definition of a tool: anything that allows you to do work using less energy.

Who wouldn’t want that? Of course, we’re always looking for the easy way out, right? A crystal can be that healing tool & support. Having said that though…I don’t think I’ve ever used them 100% all by themselves for healing a physical ailment. I’ve always used them as an accompaniment with other healing modalities.

For instance, if I feel like I might be getting a cold, I won’t just use a crystal to deflect that cold. I’m going to pool together all my known resources into my arsenal. Yeah, everything!

  • I’m going to use a crystal healing meditation.
  • I’m going to use gem elixirs.
  • I’m going to have a crystal healing session & have all my chakras cleansed & balanced.
  • I’m going to use herbs.
  • I’m going to rest.
  • I’m going to take the right vitamins & supplements that I know that can boost my immune system.
  • I’m going to reduce my stress levels.
  • I’m going to be extra careful to eat properly.

I’m going to do all those things that I know will help me to heal.

When people say that they don’t believe crystals can heal– first of all, your mindset is a big part of that sound holistic healing practice. Reducing your stress levels is also another big part of that sound holistic healing practice. Both of those things play a huge role in healing, by bathing each of your individual cells & energetic vibrational frequencies in the correct healing environment. And, yes, that has been scientifically proven for those of you that want scientific proof…check out Dr. Bruce Lipton’s work with epigenetics:

Through my research & work, I’ve discovered that crystals assist to further enhance & provide that “correct healing environment” required for healing.

So, yes, as part of a sound holistic healing practice, crystals can be a huge help!

“In a world of specialization, we have been trained to think of medicine as a separate world—when we are sick, we go to doctors and follow their advice. This is starting to change, with the increasing popularity of alternative and holistic approaches to overall health and well-being.” —Gareth Cook, Boston Globe, 9 June 2002

Not to say that using a crystal all by itself without these other surrounding healing modalities cannot work. It certainly can; and has many, many times. But I’m always playing the role of Ms. Practical. I tend towards doing things the most efficient way I know of; and for me, I found it to be most efficient to pull in all the things that I know are in alignment with the same goal in mind.

Why wouldn’t I pull in everything that I know if it’s relatively easy to do? If I know that 1 thing, or 1 modality, isn’t going to cancel out or harm the efficacy of another modality…if I know that they’re all going to work in concert together to achieve the same result, then let’s go for it! Right? Balls to the wall, Lima Bean.

Yes, taking or doing all these things individually may work wonders; but when you pull them all together, you create a 3rd resonant frequency. And this is, again…the physics teacher in me peeking through again…that 3rd Resonant Frequency (known as the Principle of Interference; google that if you feel like geeking out!) is greater than the sum of its parts & thus, produces a more profound healing effect! OH YES! Now we’re cooking with Hydrogen gas, Baby!

Isn’t that the epitome of efficiency?  Because it’s going to be so much more powerful & quicker in healing whatever it is you’re trying to heal or adjust.

And if you use all this alternative medicine in conjunction with Western medicine…well, look the frik out! Yes, I do feel that Western medicine can be a very important part of healing depending on the specific situation. It can provide all sorts of answers & solutions that we’re not able to do as easily (or at all) with alternative or Eastern medicine healing practices. I feel all the healing practices (modern, ancient & in between) are here to be used together & to compliment each other whenever appropriate.

I also know that adding crystal healing to the mix simply can’t hurt. Crystals – remember – are made by Mother Earth & God or Source Energy (please don’t leave me comments on the semantics of that).

Crystals are here to assist us; to be used as healing tools & supports.

Cheers & Good Sparkly Health~!
