Crystal Bath  Nuummite

Let’s talk about the amazing goodness of a Crystal Bath: the ultimate in energetically power packed sparkly relaxation!

In this video I’m sharing my recipe for a Crystal Bath for Self Mastery & Claiming Personal Power

I haven’t done a video from my bath tub “sacred space” in quite a while.

I was just getting ready to do a bath for self-mastery & claiming my personal power so I thought I’d take a moment & share what I’m up to with you. I apologize for the quality here as I didn’t bust out the DSLR to do this…it was really quick and in the moment.

I’ve been going through a paradigm shift of how I am doing things while also making more of an effort to connect with my personal magic.

So I got to thinking what stones or other energies do I want layer in for this bath, for the intention & specific purpose of connecting with my own personal magic.
Nuummite
I decided to work with Nuummite stones.

Nuummite is a black sparkly iridescent stone & hails from Greenland. Not a very common stone at all, it’s a mix of many different unique  minerals containing lithium-bearing amphibole, magnesium iron silicate, anthophyllite & gedrite.

What’s really cool about it is that it’s one of the oldest stones on our planet; estimated at about 3 billion years old. Yeah. BILLION, not million.

Nuummite has a very gentle energy. So if you really want to get an intense effect from it, you’ll want to amplify it with other crystals & clear quartz is ideal for doing that.
My Nuummite Crystal Bath Recipe
You don’t need to have ALL these ingredients. Any combination will work, but the more you do have, the more effective. Perhaps you can think of some other things to add in here as well to exponentiate even further?

  • 2 Nuummite Stones; they’re great for connecting with your personal magic for self-mastery and cleaning your personal power.
  • 1 Clear Quartz Crystal to amplify the energy.
  • 3-5 drops Lemon/Citron Essential Oil (NOT IN THE BATH) but in an oil burner or diffuser. Any brand will do, but I look for high quality, non-synthetic, fair-trade & organic. :)
  • 1 drop Clove Essential Oil (again in an oil burner or diffuser) & about 3 drops directly in the bath
  • 1-2 cups bath salts containing magnesium sulfate
  • I chose a guided meditation for self-mastery; so perfect to listen to while taking my bath & soaking in the energies from the Nuummite. This is that meditation. :)

Again, my goal with adding the Quartz Crystal was to amplify the energy of the Nuummite stones.
Layer the Energetic Frequencies
I like to layer in several resonant, yet similar energetic frequencies so they can harmonize & exponentiate or amplify each other. For example, here I added in some aromatherapy oils that are complimentary in energy to my purpose & intention.

Caution:  I did not add the lemon oil to my bath b/c I’ve learned through experience that freakin’ burns! Steer clear, Chick Pea. 

Instead, I’m burning the oils in my oil burner – my sacred geometry oil burner.  (((always layering the energies, this time w/ sacred geometry ☺))). **I don’t know where this oil burner came from or I’d link to it. It was a gift, but if you know, please post the link in the comments below!**

I added 1 drop of Clove essential oil to my oil burner.  I also added a few more drops of Clove directly in my actual bath water so I can more easily resonate with the energies.

Why is it so powerful to put gems & oils directly in your bath water?  Click here for a Classic Video + Blog I created on that. 
Mineral Magic
I always like to add in some bath salts containing Magnesium Sulfate b/c I like to connect with the mineral Magnesium in Epsom Salt Solution for super-relaxation. If you’d like to geek out & dive deeper into why Magnesium is so great for your health you can read more on that here.

And for a lil’ more luxuriating, I’m adding a hydrating face mask, by Karuna that someone recommended to me & said was really good. So I had to try that too. {NOTE:  I LOVED this thing! Uber-hydrating and plumping for my hormone-challenged-middle-aged skin. I should get a case of this stuff!)

Necessary Self Nurture Time: Time to connect with my crystals & do the inner work.

So make it a priority, grab your crystals (+ essential oils) and Soak it UP!

Do you ever draw a crystal bath for yourself?  What crystals do you use & for what intention?  Share in the comments below to inspire each other & indulge! Would love to hear about what you’re up to. :)

 

Breaking Through Barriers: 3 Crystals for Procrastination

Hibiscus Moon creativity, Crystal Healing, Videos 24 Comments

crystals for procrastination

Today, I’m bringing you a video about Crystals for Procrastination. First, there are many crystals we can work with to help us bust through and get shizzle done. But, in this blog/video I decided to focus on 3 specific stones to help break through those barriers.

1. Ametrine
Ametrine is a mix of amethyst + citrine. It’s a mix of iron + various amounts of heating that give it the unique color variances.

Ametrine is great for boosting inspiration & to helping us breakthrough any blocks.

Ametrine also helps us with any kind of fear of taking action. It helps eliminate & clear.

4 Easy Steps to Receive Messages from Your Crystals

4-easy-steps

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.

Got Crystals? Don’t Know What to Do with Them All? 4 Action Steps for You!

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing 26 Comments

got-crystals

I have a question for you:
Too many crystals, not enough time?
I sense that this may be starting to become a wee-little problem in our Crystal Hottie community. Some Crystal-Hoarding, perhaps?

Are we in need of a 12 Step Program here? 😉 

Hey! I’m the worst offender! I’m not immune in any way.

So sensing this issue is prevalent in our community, I recently asked this question on my Facebook Page:
 

And here are just a few of the great responses I received that prompted me to write this blog post…
 

So let’s try to figure out what may be going on for some of us:

  • Maybe you just keep acquiring more & more sparkly babies, thinking a bigger collection will make it all click!
  • Maybe you keep telling yourself you don’t yet have the “right combo” of crystals…just yet.
  • Perhaps you simply think you just need ENOUGH TIME! **You’ll get to all that someday.** 😉
  • Or maybe you even think that someday you’ll read enough crystal books & somehow remember what all the thousands of crystals are & what to use them for. *snicker, snicker* Good luck with that 1! It’s a great goal to shoot for, but…fuhget about it!  You’ll never learn what all the crystals are for, what each individual crystal’s properties & characteristics are…b/c there are over 4,500 different minerals & more being discovered all the time!! Ain’t happening, Chick Pea.

I KNOW how this plays out b/c I’ve tried & thought all these things myself!!

Let me tell you a little-bitty secret:

“Someday” usually never comes.

Yep, just as the Creedence Clearwater song lyrics say…

“Well I’m here to tell you now each and every mother’s son, that you better learn it fast, you better learn it young ‘Cause someday never comes…”
Us humans…we’re really good at creating all sorts of excuses that can forever support procrastination. Right?

Let’s get real here, Lima Bean.

How many things have you said “one day” or “Bucket List!” to & actually completed? That ain’t how manifestation works. Someday will always be someday and will never be NOW!

And no judgement here.

If you’ve decided & made peace with the fact that you’re totally OK with simply being a crystal collector & never actually getting intimate with their energy & healing potential….there’s NOTHING wrong with that.

But if you’re intention IS to get energy-intimate, then please KEEP READING!

Action Steps to Learn How to Work with all your Crystals

ACTION STEP 1
Focused Blocks of Sacred Time

Not enough time?

Too busy?

Sorry, but BULLSCHIST!

First, you need to decide that it’s a priority to you. Then you need to make a commitment to your goal so it doesn’t get pushed off to “later”. You’ll always make of your commitments what you put into them. So stop watching TV, get off of social media or watching the negativity news stories on the local news or CNN….I bet you’ll find all sorts of time if you just cut out 1/2 of that shiz.

Still feel like you don’t have enough time?

All you need is a few minutes a day to work with your chosen crystal. Yeah, like 3-4 min. Who doesn’t have a few minutes for something as important as this?

You need to get real with yourself! Is learning about your crystals important enough to you?

If the answer is “YES”, then carve out that time in a weekly calendar. Make it a repeating weekly appointment on your smart phone now. Yep, do it now.

Then make that time sacred. Don’t let any freakin’ thing or anyone get in the way. Treat it like a doctor’s appointment…b/c you know they’ll charge you for that shit if you miss the dang appointment! It should just as important as that.

ACTION STEP 2
Eliminate Crystal Overwhelm

If you’re like me & have a TON O’ CRYSTALS then you may be suffering from Crystal-Overwhelm.

It happens to the best of us. You get paralyzed by all the crystals you see in the shops or all the crystals you’ve amassed for yourself & you have no idea where to begin or which crystal to go to.

So you just freeze & do nada. :/

How to get unfrozen? Just listen to your intuition.

 

THIS IS KEY & what I’m always preaching: Just use your intuition, Crystal Hottie.

If you get quiet & still you’ll notice that you’re naturally attracted to 1 particular crystal (usually 1, but sometimes more) for whatever reason. Maybe it’s aesthetically pleasing to you or you have a deep inner knowing that you’re attracted to that 1 crystal for a very good reason. Don’t ignore that!

Don’t worry about what the books say.

Go with your gut.

You have that feeling for a reason.♥
ACTION STEP 3
Publicly Commit

This step is super-effective.

If you’re comfy with it, social media is great for this!! In fact, social motivation is 1 of the most powerful motivators there is.

Whenever I want to commit to doing anything, I tell my online followers (whether on YouTube, Facebook or Instagram) or my Mastermind group what I’m up to & I ask them to hold me accountable! This way I know that if I don’t check in like I’m supposed to, they’ll be asking me about it.

Totally works like a charm for keeping me motivated to stay on track!

Maybe you don’t want to go quite as public with your intentions, but you can at least let your inner circle know what you’re up to & tell them you need their help on this. Tell them to ask you questions & to ask you about your goal to learn more about your crystals when they see you online or talk to you in person.

Ask for some accountability & you’ll get it!
ACTION STEP  4
Overcome the Fear of Failing at Crystal Healing
I really even hesitate to call the work we do with crystals “crystal “healing” (but cont. to do so b/c so many don’t understand what you’re talking about if you call it anything else).

So; “crystal healing, therapy, energy work”…whatever you want to call it…many think to themselves…
“Who am I to think I can do this? I’m going to fail. It won’t work.”

Wrong.

Because you cannot fail. First of all, bear in mind that when working with crystals, the “healing” taking place is a 2 way street…it goes both ways. You’re simply acting as a conduit for the work to take place, so that takes a lot of the pressure off, right? It usually totally dissipates the fear that so many of us have around this sort of work.

Yes, yes, yes…of course you’ll have to do some work, but if you do the work, you cannot fail. Simply think about who you’re helping, whether it be yourself or someone else, find inspiration in the fact that you are doing good, you’re bringing the light & you’re simply acting as the go-between for the subtle forces to work through you. That’s all. 😉

You can do this. I believe in you.

You have ENDLESS potential!

What To Do Right Now
Review the 4 steps above & right down on your calendar when you’re getting started.

That’s what you need to do right now.

Don’t say you’ll “try” it!

You need to do it. As Master Yoda says…
