Sitting at my desk in my sacred studio space; thinking, researching, putting into practice & typing away to share with you.

What does it mean when your crystal cracks or breaks?
It can be pretty distressing when a crystal cracks, right? And many of you want to know … What does it mean? 

It could be just plain ole’ science & physics that did it like a heavy impact or thermal shock: extreme hot to cold or cold to hot.

But sometimes a stone or crystal just breaks…with no explanation.

So then we have to look at energy.

What does it mean when your crystal disappears?
So what does it mean when a crystal disappears? Just up & goes AWOL?

  • Sometimes people will find their crystals later & it will be completely unexplained. Like the crystal manifested itself in a little bag that was locked up somewhere in a safety deposit box – something really, really wild, like that…& it’s completely unexplained. Unless of course you had amnesia & don’t remember doing such a thing. ?
  • Or sometimes, the crystal is found by someone else in a different place entirely; not even in the same vicinity.
  • Or sometimes you never find the crystal again – its just up & left. It’s gone. It has disappeared, never to be heard from again.

This is a very common question I get asked on a fairly frequent basis and there are a few ways to answer it…

    Crystals & Travel

    Hibiscus Moon anxiety, Crystals, earthing, science 8 Comments

    I’ve blogged on this topic once before but in this video we take the topic of traveling with your crystals to a whole other level (or I should say altitude…har har!)

    Thanks to Christine for submitting this great question:

    “Is it safe to travel with your crystals through an airport x-ray scan?”

    What started out as what felt like a lite-and-easy-question to me…turned out to having me include some really important info that I think everyone should be aware of! So in this week’s video I will answer Christine’s question plus:

    • What are x-rays?
    • Is it dangerous to our stones?
    • Is it dangerous to us?
    • What kind of radiation can be dangerous?
    • Crystals we can take with us on a flight to help ensure safe travel free of anxiety, air sickness, jet lag, etc.

    Crystals & Travel

    Here’s a close up of that travel mojo kit I talked about….I never leave home without it:

    I also want to let you know that x-rays will not damage or molecularly change your stones…you, on the other hand…that’s another story.

    Here’s a link to that info I referred to regarding irradiated stones, granite & gems (scroll to the bottom of the page to Radioactivity Concerns).
    Blissful Travel Gem Elixir
    Here’s something else to help with travel…a Hematite Gem Elixir. Take a washed & tumbled non-manmade hemetite stone & drop it into a pitcher of water to be kept in the refrigerator overnight. Drink half a glass of this the morning of your trip. Make some more up once you get where you are going to help with jet lag. Hematite gem elixir is a gentle & easy way to support & calm you while you travel.

    If you’d really like to get into Gem Elixirs & all the creative ways to use them, I have a whole eKit dedicated to just that.

    SIDE NOTE:

    Although I barely touch on the topic of the amount of radiation we’re subjected to when flying in the video, it’s something that you should be very cautious & informed about (yet you won’t hear much about it).

    We can  be exposed to even more doses of radiation during solar storms, so during periods of increased solar activity…like now, this is something to pay attention to. NASA has a computer model aimed at informing the public about this hazard. You can find out more about that here.

    I know some of you enjoy these scientific rabbit holes as much as I do sooooo…if you feel like geekin’ out for a sec here’s a NASA video explaining more on that radiation air travel danger. KNOWLEDGE = POWER (the ability to protect yourself & do something about it):

    Crystals to Help Lower Your Radiation Risk
    These crystals certainly won’t eliminate risk but they will help.

    Kernite or Colemanite crystals can help to absorb low-dose radiation. These crystals are Boron-based, thereby accepting & ionizing radiation:

    [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="470"] kernite[/caption] [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="455"] Colemanite Photo by Rob Lavinsky of irocks.com[/caption]

    So…no…the human body was not meant to be exposed to the level of radiation we’re exposed to in a plane. Stones can handle it a lot better than we can. Stay informed & protected.

    And please be informed & do your own research. Then help spread the word. Together we can change the world.♥

    Please share this post & spread the word. I’m counting on you. OK?

    Does Solar Activity Affect Us?

    Hibiscus Moon anxiety, astronomy, earthing, energy work, science 2 Comments

    So, this solar pole flip energy stuff has some of us really flipped out, right?

    As I discuss in this week’s featured video there’s nothing to fear because we’ve all done this before. The flip we’re in now is only the 4th observed since tracking began in 1976.
    Does Solar Activity Affect Us? & Crystal Porn!

    The Sun’s magnetic field flips regularly every 11 years at the peak of each solar activity cycle…when the Sun’s internal magnetic dynamo reorients itself. We’re not sure exactly why this occurs. Scientists predicted the flip would occur now & say it should be complete by December.

    Think back to late 2000, early 2001. Do you remember anything significant happening? That’s when we had our last flip.

    What’s happening now is that the sun’s magnetic field has weakened, eventually dying down to zero point before ramping up again with an opposite polarity. So, north is south & south is north. Flip-flop!

    It’s important that you know, Lima Bean, that this is not a disastrous event.

    BUT scientists do acknowledge the reversal will have ripple effects throughout our solar system, as it always does. So, there’s a lot of solar activity & what we call space weather headed our way during this event.
    Reflecting on what I mentioned in the video, re: solar activity & earthquake correlation…check out this email sent out by EarthSkyNews last Saturday morning:

    Does it affect us in any way?

    YES. Every electromagnetic field in our solar system, including our own, is influenced to some extent & we can feel these effects on multiple levels.
    Symptoms of the increase in space weather:

    • Feeling’ tired
    • Floaty
    • Autoimmune disease flare ups
    • Allergy symptom flare ups
    • Cranky
    • Dizzy
    • anxiety
    • Spaced out
    • Overly emotional
    • Uncoordinated
    • Lethargic

    Please note: This is how these events effect most people, but not everyone will be effected in the same way. Some people actually get highly energized…it all depends on our individual vibration.

    REMEMBER…no need to worry…we’ve done this all before. And here, I’m sharing with you some tools to make these transitions that much easier.
    Prescriptions:

    • Staying in heart center…Remember, we’re all going through this together so be understanding
    • Focus in on the energy of our local stars, the Moon, and, of course, our Sun. We’re a part of this whole system. Lots of moving parts.
    • Crystal work with Black tourmaline, 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. Blizzard stone is another great one for balancing energies & uber-grounding.
    • Do lots of Earthing (check out that book!) 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 our loving, caring attention.
    • Nourishing root-based foods (carrots, potatoes, shallots, etc.)
    • Touch therapies (massage, aroma-touch therapy, etc.)
    • Unplug & try to get away from electronic EMF’s & electro-pollution
    • There’s more on my other post here
