Attracting MONEY, Success + Abundance into your life with Crystals

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Grids, gratefullness, law of attraction, prosperity 30 Comments

We know that crystals have many amazing healing properties, but they can also be used to attract money, success, prosperity & abundance by being a vibrational match to that type of energy, that frequency.

And lest you start getting all funky on me b/c I mentioned the word “MONEY”, please go read my blog post here first b/c I’m simply not going to entertain any money funkiness over here on my blog.

So first things first. In order to attract all that good stuffs I just mentioned above…you need to have cleared your mind of any old thought patterns you might be harboring that tell you do not have enough, you’ll never succeed or that you’re lacking in some way. We absolutely can use crystals as tools & supports to help us attract what we seek. Like attracts like, so first we must re-define our way of thinking.

I know…that sounds like a tall order.

But—let me ask you. When I say the words “success, prosperity, abundance”; what’s the first thing that comes to mind?

For a lot of people, that’s going to be money.

Don’t feel bad if you’re one of those people—in our culture, we’ve basically been programmed to believe this from the get go.
Mindset Change
I bet you’ve heard the phrase, “Money can’t buy happiness.” I’d like to give you a different one to think about & perhaps integrate into your new abundance mindset (which is crucial if you’d like to use crystals to attract abundance). And that new mindset is:
Happiness CAN buy money!
Whaaaattt???

It’s true.

Happiness is an energy, a currency of sorts. Perhaps it’s not one that you can fold up & keep in your wallet or deposit into a piggy bank on top of your dresser, but when you’re able to cultivate a happy, positive energy about money—including not hating those who have more of it than you do, or seemingly acquire it more easily than you do—you’ll naturally make yourself more attractive to it.

How do I know? B/c I’ve been on both sides of that coin. I’ve been super poor, not able to scrounge up enough coins to go do my laundry, eating stale bread and drinking a diet coke for dinner, waitressing my ass off working double shifts while snarling my lip at the seemingly comfy people I was waiting on. They didn’t do anything to be hated on, but I just did b/c they were able to go out & enjoy themselves, were dressed well, drove a nice car & seemed to be doing well.

What a mindset I had! As long as I stayed in that cycle I was going to continue to attract more & more of that. And I did.
The Law of Attraction
I bet that’s a phrase you’ve heard a time or two before, too. If your attitude about money, success, prosperity & abundance in general—is that you’re lacking, that’s exactly what you’re going to have coming: not enough!

One of the best things you can is to take a good step back & look at all the wonderful, sparkly things that are happening in your life that you CAN be grateful for. It doesn’t have to be something monumental—though those things count, too!—it can be something so small that you might not even realize you’re grateful for it until you examine it a little more closely. And it’s one of the best feelings to realize that, while your life might not be exactly how you envision it, that there are plenty of things happening that you can, in fact, be super-grateful for. You might be far more prosperous & successful than you realize!

So now that we’ve talked about how you can begin to shift your mindset, let’s look into some other ways that you can start to attract more abundance and prosperity into your life.
Success & Abundance Attracting Crystal Grid
If you’re unfamiliar with the term…a crystal grid is:
a geometric pattern of energetically aligned stones that are charged by intention. They’re set in a sacred space in order to manifest whatever objective it is you have.
(BTW, I wrote a best-selling book all about crystal grids over here).

You may know I used to be a science teacher back in the day. I loved that job, but eventually, I wanted to leave in order to focus all my energies on my sacred crystal business. I took the scary leap in 2012 & did so successfully with a crystal grid assist! Here are the details on that specific crystal grid.

I LOVE to use crystal grids to support me in whatever my next vision is…and they do so beautifully each time.

Here’s a current one that I have working in my space now specifically for pushing my sacred biz up to the next level while also giving me plenty of soul-nourishment. To achieve this I needed to choose crystals that would enhance spirit & soul nourishment as well as business mojo.

Here’s what I chose…

  • My large amethyst point (I’ve affectionately names him Amy Bro) & some amethyst tumblies…for divine connection, allowing me to recognize & surrender to my spiritual power when needed.
  • Citrine smaller tumbled stones for the biz mojo energy! Citrine is known as the merchant’s stone & also assists with manifestation.
  • Clear quartz points for amplifying the energy of this grid & directing outwards..to the universe & beyond!
  • A citrine spirit quartz specimen – this piece was key for combining the energy of citrine along with that of spirit quartz which is about connecting with my higher self while also dispelling any fears that may come up on this up-leveling journey!

And here’s exactly what I did step by step:

  • I chose the Flower of Life symbol as my grid template (you can also print one out on paper).
  • On a few post-it notes I wrote some well-thought out affirmations to place under my large amethyst center stone & the citrine spirit quartz (I’ll be keeping those affirmations private, thanks. A girl’s gotta keep some stuff to herself).
  • Gave myself some time to just sit there among all the things I’d gathered, thinking everything through, infusing them with my clear intentions.
  • Arranged everything on the grid cloth very symmetrically ( I feel this is key in a crystal grid!)
  • I also added a few magazine cut-outs (tucked under the center stone); things that suggested what life would be like when my desire transformed into reality. Not COULD be like, but WOULD be like!
  • Voila! The completed grid. Take a look-see!

     

    And is this crystal grid working? You better believe it!!
    In fact, it’s working so well that I’ve just returned from a blissful rejuvenating & soul nourishing sabbatical for the past 2 months, while my biz continued to grow & support me, itself, my beloved students, the Sparkle Team and our larger community of Crystal Hotties. ♥
    Tweak it!
    One of the really fabulous things about this, too, is that you can tweak the crystal grid as your goals evolve. This is not a static thing.

    You can continue to work with your crystal grid, adding to it, tweaking it as you grow and as your goals change or get more fine tuned. I’ve certainly done that time & time again. My goals get more specific & detailed and I simply tweak away.

    Now, I know that it can sound like a mighty big undertaking, to totally shift your way of thinking. I know it was really hard to let go of beliefs & perceptions that I had programmed into me for decades…but you’ll truly be amazed when you realize how empowering it is to be able to create exactly what it is that you need in life & manifest it up.  And a crystal grid can help you get there even quicker!

    Attracting success, prosperity and abundance is not only empowering, but can be fun too. Heck , I know I’m having a lot more fun now than when I was too busy working double shifts waitressing & snarling my lip!!

    Give it a go Sparkly One.  Work on your mindset, get that sorted out, then gather up your crystals and tools and get creating!  You can do this, you can change your life and attract abundance and prosperity.  There’s enough for everyone.

    So, you gonna do it?   I’d love to hear about your money-attracting Abundance & Prosperity Crystal Grid.  Don’t be shy, share with me in the comments below! 

    Abundant Crystal Blessings,

    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…

    Don’t Waste Time! Bust Through any Obstacle with My Obstacle Remover Crystal Grid!

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Grids, Videos 16 Comments

    Today I’m going to give you a bit more detail on my obstacle remover crystal grid.

    I’m listing out all the glitter-filled deets  & crystal components that make up this power-packed crystal grid right here in this blog post for ya… Ready?  Here we go!

    Grid Components
    I tapped into the energy of:

    • Bloodstone – strength & courage to face your obstacles while purifying
    • Kunzite – allows you to release resistance, also great for removing physical blocks & obstacles while assisting with emotional healing
    • and (since this is obstacle remover for my business) I used my polished Citrine point (powerful biz support, The Merchant’s Stone!) as my center stone
    • Obstacle Remover Gem Elixir Spray
    • …and of course, a Ganesha statue (the Remover of Obstacles)

    I heard that Ganesha with the trunk going to the left is for good luck & prosperity.

    So I found one that has the trunk going towards the left, although that was kind of difficult to find!  Most Ganesha statues have the trunk going to the right. **But I think that all depends on what your viewpoint is…right? So maybe it really doesn’t matter at all. 😉 **

    This is my little dressing area that I had this grid set up in…

    As you can see in the video, I lit my candles & I’ve got my amethyst staff that Lori Andrus custom-made for me overlooking the whole scene. ?

    I also had the Crystal Balance Kick Ass spray in the little yellow bottle that I really love from one of our Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers.  I usually shake it up and then spray it a few times over the grid just to be all…Kick Ass“!

    I also added some different essential oils to that spray kind of made it my own and of course it has crystals in it as well.☺ **Recipe given below to create your own!**

    Finishing touch? Ganesha is typically honored with hibiscus flowers so I added some of those sprinkled in to the grid too (but forgot to get photos of that).

    Since I know you’ll ask me about that green grid cloth I used there; I used to sell those, but no longer do and here’s why.

    Instead I have a sustainable grid cloth alternative here!
    Hibiscus Moon Obstacle Remover Gem Elixir Spray Recipe

    • 1 Clean and empty spray bottle
    • 1 organic hibiscus flower petal (optional)
    • 1 stone chip of Bloodstone
    • 1 stone chip of Pink Kunzite

    High Quality Essential Oils of:

    • Lemongrass, 3 drops
    • Bergamot, 3 drops
    • Tangerine, 3 drops
    • Lemon balm, 3 drops
    • Fill rest of spray bottle with a 50/50 mix of distilled water & high proof vodka

    Ganesha; Remover of Obstacles

    Ganesha energy helped me so much at the end of last year & in this grid; moved that stuck energy and got the energy flowing again.

    And this is the Obstacle Removal Mantra I used…

    “Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha”

    In other words…“Hey! Outta my way! Coming through!” You can read up more on the precise translation here.

    You can even choose to chant along outloud with this wonderful video here. POWERFUL!:

    This specific crystal grid helped me to bust on through some very stubborn & difficult obstacles. Following my steps here will allow you to move through any obstacles in your life, Chick Pea…like buttah! ?

    4 Easy Steps to Receive Messages from Your Crystals

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Grids, Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Crystals, interview, love, self love 14 Comments

    I have a very special guest blog post for you today, Crystal Hottie!  

    I’m I’m handing over the reins to, Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer & intuitive, Kristin Marie Rodriguez, of kristinmarierodriguez.com.

     

    I think you’re really gonna LOVE this blog…she’s generously sharing her methods & power techniques for closely connecting with your crystals while asking for and receiving insight with a Step-by-Step Method. We love actionable steps like this, right?

    OK. Let’s go!  Here’s Kristin …

    ♥♥♥
    I can recall the first time it spoke to me.
    I was preparing to lay out my crystal grid for love. I remember, I was using a template in pink to amplify the energy & intention.

    As I began to lay my rose quartz out on each symmetrical point…that’s when I began to “hear” my crystals speak to me for the first time through my clairsentient abilities.

    NOTE FROM HIBISCUS: <<Clair-sentient simply means a strong “inner knowing/feeling”. 🙂 >>

    It was subtle at first.

    Then, the more I acknowledged with focused intention and concentration, the clearer the messages from my crystal stones became.

    So, to increase the intensity, I held my rose quartz in my hand and asked it what messages they had for me in regards to my crystal grid intention.

    And as soon as I spoke my intention, I began to sense (visualize) messages come-in fast through my mind’s eye (a.k.a clairvoyanceseeing messages) and heard guidance in my own voice (a.k.a. clairaudiencehearing messages).

    The stone “told” me to take small acts of self-love, such as:

    • a bubble bath
    • schedule in time for myself
    • appointment with my hair-dresser
    • and to wear more pink!

    I heard some of these messages, but I also saw some of these messages as visions in the rose quartz stone as well as in my mind’s eye.

    From then on, I noticed each time I created a crystal grid and worked with my crystals that the stones would talk and have a message for me, or the recipient.
    I’d love to teach you this technique!
    There are 2 ways I do this.

    First, please keep in mind, these techniques will only work with intention and an open-mind. Try to have both before beginning. ♥
    Method 1
    With 1 Crystal: 

    • Choose 1 crystal stone to work with. The stone should relate to your issue you want guidance and/or healing assistance on.

    For example: Citrine for abundance, money, solar plexus. Rose quartz for love and heart chakra. Red Jasper for grounding, increasing energy, root chakra, etc. Choose 1 stone that relates to your intention and can provide healing properties on the issue.

    • Next, find a quiet place to sit and meditate with this stone. Try to choose a time of the day when you’ll have minimum interruptions. Also, make sure that the stone you’re working with is cleansed/re-tuned prior to this exercise.  {Insert from Hibiscus here:  I discuss & explain re-tuning crystals in this blog post}.

    While holding the stone state:
    “Rose Quartz (replace w/ the name of your crystal), I wish to receive more Love (replace w/ the topic you want guidance or assistance with) in my life. Can you please show and tell me loud and clearly how can I receive this in my life now?”
    Here’s another example intention:
    Citrine, I wish to receive more abundance in my life. Can you please show and tell me loud and clearly how can I receive this abundance now?”

    • From there: Listen. Pay attention. Gaze into the stone.
    • The crystal stones will always have a message. We just have to be willing to slow down and be ready to receive.
    • You may even see images take shape in the crystal, especially, if holding a clear quartz.
    • I recommend journaling what you sense intuitively with your crystals.
    • When you feel the messages are complete, then bless your crystals and state gratitude.

    For example, hold the crystal and state:
    “Thank you, Citrine, for that beautiful message. I will certainly follow through with your help and guidance.”
    Method 2: With a Crystal Grid (multiple crystals)
    This method is similar to the first technique, but instead of reading 1 crystal you’ll read multiple stones from your grid. (You can learn more about crystal grids here!)

    Each crystal stone will have a message.

    The messages you receive from the crystal grid will pertain to your crystal grid intention.

    • Step 1: After activating your crystal grid sit and meditate with your grid.
    • Step 2: Ask a specific question to your grid. Then listen as each different crystal stone speaks and shares a message.
    • Step 3: Journal your crystal messages, making note of it as it speaks to you while you create a place on the grid for the stone.
    • Step 4: Once guidance is complete, then bless and give gratitude to your grid, both for the messages and the healing, or manifesting work that it’s assisting you with.

    Remember, as with any metaphysical practice, it’s always important to include the spiritual and the practical.

    The spiritual being the crystal grid created, then the practical being physical action steps or changes the crystal stones or crystal grid guide you to take.

    It’s a simple technique which you can have a lot of fun with!

    Ready to try it?

    Have some fun & practice these techniques while reading the crystals for yourself and others.
