Hi Crystal Hottie!

Hey! Hey! It’s time for 1 of my favorite types of blog posts. I love to shine the Jeweler’s Loupe on 1 of our own with my sparkly series of Crystal Healer Interviews. By doing this we all get some  fresh, new crystal insight from others in the Hibiscus Moon Universe that are living & breathing the same crystal path.  Exciting stuffs!

I’m so grateful & honored to have an entire worldwide network of Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers & Advanced Crystal Masters to tap into for these amazingly special blog posts. 

Today you’re going to meet a very talented & spirited  HMCA Advanced Crystal Master, Tree Mckenna Cinque. I’m so blessed to have worked with Tree as she is also part of our Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy Faculty as one of our beloved ACM teachers, sharing her crystal singing bowl expertise with us.

Tree’s message with us here in this blog is about listening to & honoring the signs from the Universe while being your authentic self.

She shares with us insights about her powerful, life changing experience with Pietersite + Moldavite,  how her success comes from letting her creativity shine and allowing the abundance to flow + how she works with collective group energy to manifest with crystal grids.   From the moment I met her, I knew we had someone special on our hands. Her energy is contagious & so very uplifting. You’ll see. :)

Here’s Tree!

What brought you to the world of Crystal Healing?
Well, first I would like to say that my involvement with the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy has literally Rocked My World…in a great way!!!!

I had always been interested in crystals from an early age. I remember digging on the side of my house in Queens with the neighborhood kids and finding Pyrite and Mica. We thought we found pirate treasure. What kid didn’t do that? LOL.

What really propelled me to study crystal healing was that I basically didn’t know enough about the glittery toolbox that I had. I kept amassing crystals, but did not know their uses. I would run around Greenwich Village in the early 1990’s, spending my entire $200 paycheck, buying Moldavite (of all things) & Record Keepers. All I did with them was place them on my windowsills….and allow 20 years to pass before I finally was ready to embrace their magic!

Crystals truly ARE magical.

They are facilitators, just by being in your presence.
However, they only work when you are ready to work with them.
Prior to my crystal and sound healing career path, I went back to school for interior design at 40. While working at a Healthcare design firm, I developed a passion for biophilic design. That is just a fancy word for incorporating nature into the built environment for healing. My concepts of using clay paint that emitted negative ions and natural stone tiles for spa-like serenity in hospice centers fell on deaf ears.  Interior Design, Publishing, Public Relations…None of my jobs made my soul sing and I kept getting sick. Shingles was one of the reasons why I am on this crystal healing path now.

Each time I veered from the healing arena, the Universe reminded me (with a swift kick) that I was on the wrong path.

When my husband suggested I follow my life-long metaphysics passion, the doors magically opened up. It was then that I found The Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy. After Stephanie invited me to be a guest on a Google Hangout, there was no turning back. I knew I had found my life’s purpose. I am forever grateful.

What crystal has had the biggest effect on you?
Actually crystals; plural. There are two. I had a crystal awakening.

My life literally changed when I began wearing Pietersite and Moldavite together.

African Pietersite

About one year after I graduated from design school, I began wearing a large Moldavite on my neck. I had read Robert Simmons’ Moldavite book and paid no mind to his warning that once Moldavite comes into your energy field, the carpet may get pulled out from under you and change your path.

Moldavite

Out of the blue, I woke up and decided I did not want to do design work anymore…after four years of study! Shortly after, I began wearing Pietersite with the Moldavite, I found Hibiscus Moon and the rest is history.
Pietersite helps you find your life’s purpose and Moldavite makes it happen!
It puts the pedal to the metal and off you go. This is my trademark stone combo.
What do others in your life think about the path you are on?
People think I “march to the beat of my own drum” –a chakra drum, of course, as I do sound healing work. I wouldn’t have it any other way! 

My path has taken many exciting turns and I attribute it all to the effect the crystals have had on my energy field. I was strengthened.

Because of my crystal training, I have become a Vibrational Frequency Shifter (my new title) and I have helped empower so many people. I hold crystal bowl sound healing group sessions, private Reiki sessions, and Tibetan bowl healing sessions as well.

I have several Facebook groups on crystals and empowerment. I love to teach and run a business page called Crystal Harmonic Healing and groups called The Stone Snob and TreEvolve. (We never heal; we evolve!) In addition, I have developed an awesome tribe that participates in my almost monthly crystal grids. Many HMCA graduates participate in my crystal grids and, collectively, we help manifest our wishes.

It is a ton of work, but coaching, sending Reiki and other mojo to my group members and constantly charging the grids, really helps create desired outcomes. That is a very large part of my business. Facebook has been huge for me. I am so fortunate for my crystal tribe.

This path has extended beyond crystals…because of crystals.

People either think it is so cool or think I’m crazy.

I am doing the whole “Shop, Pray, Love” journey and I don’t care what people think. I am loving life!!

My husband asks when it is going to stop. I say it is just beginning!!
Be your authentic self and let your soul sing!!
What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this path?
Learning the Hows and Whys (thank you Hibiscus Moon) and the science behind how crystals work. Knowing this gave me the confidence to put myself out there.

The other very important thing that made a difference was the belief that the Universe would provide if the path was right. I admit, I was nervous about paying for my crystal certification. Once I committed, the Universe conspired to make it happen. Lose the fear and the worry. The money just started flowing.

My mantra for this:
“The Universe provides financial abundance in my life and I am grateful!”
How do you navigate being a crystal healer and a mama on a daily basis?
My kids grew up with my crystal obsession, so it is not a big deal.

I love it when my daughter calls me from college in cloudy Michigan and says, “Mom, this weather is so depressing and everyone has Seasonal Affective Disorder Syndrome. Please send me some crystals.”  So, off go the Citrine and the Sunstone bracelet.

My entire family is supportive of my crystal “habit.” It makes it easier for them to buy me gifts. 😉
Do any ridicule you for being interested in crystal healing? If so, how do you handle that?
Yes and no.

There will always be people who do not understand what we do with crystals. I have encountered some who are under the false impression that we pray to crystals.

Someone half-jokingly told me she should throw Holy water on me because I was wearing a Moldavite pendant. People just do not understand unless you explain it in simple terms.

I tell people everything on this planet is a gift, no different from food and flowers…or your diamond engagement ring. That usually quiets them. If that doesn’t work, I open my mouth and throw around terms like entrainment and Dominant Oscillary Rate. It leaves people speechless. It is then that they understand that this IS science and I know my shizzle.
What is your go-to crystal for grounding?
I have two.

I recently went to Glastonbury, England on my way to Stonehenge. It is a crystal lover’s dream as there are loads of crystal shops. I found a unique and awesome Smoky Quartz from Mount Sinai, Egypt. Talk about grounding–Holy Moses! (I bet he even had a few.)

The other is Botryoidal Hematite. This stone is an instant grounder.

Botryoidal Hematite. Rob Lavinsky, iRocks.com – CC-BY-SA-3.0 [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsIt bubbles the issues to the surface and then grounds them.
Do you have any advice for anyone who is considering this path?
I learned the expensive way that less is more.

I used to buy every crystal I saw.

I still buy a lot, but now, I am more discriminating about my purchases. I have changed my views and think about the “tools” that would most benefit me and my practice. Sometimes it means that you should wait until you can afford a better grade of crystal.

I really like using Chromotherapy and strengthening the chakras with rays of color. For instance, the Throat Chakra can really benefit from the blue ray emitted by a gem quality Aquamarine. Now, I opt for crystals that are a lil’ pricier, but really get the job done.
What is the primary way you utilize crystals in your practice?
I love to spoil my clients. I work with crystal layouts in all of my Reiki sessions.

Up until recently, I included crystal layouts in my signature crystal bowl sound healing sessions and “lost” a few. I thought it best to honor my stones and use them in smaller venues.

As I mentioned before, I have a “Rocking” following on Facebook who participates in my crystal grids. I am a Silicon Dioxide addict, so I have tons of clear Quartz. I program a stone for each person in my crystal grid. I employ moon phases, Reiki, Sacred Geometry and other mojo to make them ROCK! My grid recipes are kind of like the KFC Recipe, very secret. LOL.

All I know is that they work and the participants are all happy!
From where do you draw inspiration in your crystal practice?
I draw inspiration from all my clients, Facebook followers and fellow crystal healers.

With my clients, I look to find out THEIR needs. To help others, you have to find out people’s issues and address them. It is so rewarding to recommend a stone like Labradorite when someone is experiencing grief… and it makes them feel better.

I am inspired by those I meet on Facebook. The knowledge that people bring to the table is incredible. I am humbled on a daily basis. Everyone has something to offer, and more if they could just remember it. For example, you never know if someone was a healer in a past life!
How did you celebrate or reward yourself once you graduated?
Gee, I am still celebrating years later. Just ask the people in my Facebook groups. Hee hee. This Crystal Sister rewards herself quite often with crystals, crystal bowls and healing goodies to make my practice “off the charts” Tree-Authentic! I am an admitted Crystal-holic! Even the shopkeepers tell me that, but it makes my soul soar!

Get your sparkly lasso b/c it’s crystal round-up time!

Today I’m going to list out my 10 Most Popular Crystal Blog Posts of 2015!

Why?

B/c just in case you missed any of these last year, I want to make sure you see them now. **These blog posts really vibed it up BIG-TIME with our Crystal Hottie Community so chances are…you’re going to love at least a few of them too!**

So here they are…my most sparkliest 10 posts of 2015:

1. Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Himalayan Salt Lamps (you love those freakin’ Salt Lamps!)
Topaz is a smart cookie, you know!

 

I get a lot of questions like these about Himalayan Salt Lamps:

What’s the big deal about these Himalayan Salt Lamps?

Do they really do what everybody says they do?

So the major thing that Himalayan Salt Lamps “do” is that they induce negative ions into your environment. (We’ll get to that in full post!!!)

I have 1 in my sacred crystal studio. He’s super heavy & pretty darn big…comes up to my knee.  I really like to have a salt lamp in just about every room of our home (2 in the bedroom; we have 1 on each of our night stands on either side of our bed.)

Keep reading here:  http://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/himalayan-salt-lamps/
2. The Ultimate Guide to Shungite (HOTTEST new stone on the market)
Shungite, shungite, shungite!

This stuff came out on the new age stone-lovers scene about 3 years ago & made quite the big splash. I’m not sure why it suddenly became so popular but it’s not usually listed in the older, more popular crystal property books so people are often left wondering & asking me lots & lots of questions about it.

There are numerous web articles out there that make lots of unfounded claims about shungite so I really felt the need to finally get this blog post out there.

Keep reading here:  http://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/shungite/

 
3.  3 Crystals to Mega Boost Your Self-Esteem (really struck a chord)
Have issues with worthiness? Self-Worth? Self-esteem? Self love?

Well, I’ve got some crystals for you!

Yes, I’ve got some crystals to help boost your feelings of worthiness, or boost your self-esteem, your self-worth. 

You know, a lot of us have issues with this.  Because…maybe we’ve been bullied.  Perhaps, there are people in our lives that talk negatively to us or criticize us for every little thing we do. :(

After a while you start to believe that stuffs.  Keep in mind, they’re being this way b/c you’re not just like them, because of their own feelings of low self-esteem & low self-worth.

Keep reading here:  http://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/crystals-for-self-esteem/
4. WARNING: If Toxic Crystals Are So Bad, Why Do Some Recommend Them? (watch out!)
If Toxic Crystals Are So Bad, Why Do Some Recommend Them?

Well, I really cannot say why some recommendations don’t give at least a fair warning, but I suppose that most who are recommending the crystals assume the danger is low. Sometimes it is…and sometimes it isn’t.

Here’s a really good question I was recently asked by a student:

If Cinnabar is a toxic crystal why do crystal healing books recommend it?

For that matter, why would anyone recommend working with ANY toxic crystals at all?

Keep reading here:  http://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/working-with-toxic-crystals/
5.  Is The Power Of Quartz A Scam? (explains the science behind HOW quartz crystals work…you eat up that science shiz as much as I do!)
Is the power of crystals & quartz energy a scam?  No way!

How will I prove that to you?  By throwing some science at it, of course!

Quartz is amazing in so many ways.  It makes up some of our very favorite crystals to work with:

  • clear quartz
  • amethyst
  • citrine
  • smokey quartz
  • rose quartz

6. How Carnelian is Bringing “Sexy” Back + a FREE Gift for You!  (Total juicy-ness!)
In the crystal world, there’s no other crystal that embodies “sexy” better than carnelian: pure sexy energy!

Does this sound like you these days?

  • tired & drained? 
  • poor social skills?
  • deny yourself of pleasures?
  • lack of passion, enthusiasm, excitement?
  • lack of creativity?
  • fear of change?
  • frigidity and/or fear of sex?

Then this is the stone for you!

7. Sparkly Ideas for Using Crystals with Children (Kids + Crystals; an effortless combo)
I’m so excited about this one, because I get asked about this a lot, and it’s one of my favorite subjects to talk about, it’s:

Crystals for Children

Sometimes I’m asked what crystals are good for kids to bring with them to school, to calm down their energy because sometimes, some  children have a lot more energy than others.

So, we have part A & Part B of this discussion:

  • Calming down a child’s energy if necessary
  • Crystals kids can have in their bedroom or for school to help them feel safe + protected (perhaps against nightmares), that will also help transmute negative energy so that it’s perceived by them as neutral and not perceived as “negative”; a handy tool for them to have in their pocket.
  • Keep reading here: http://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/crystals-for-children/
    8. Can I share deep? Some stuff you didn’t know about me… (some personal stuffs about me)
    Tag, you’re it!

    I got “tagged” by Flora Sage (one of my buddies from YouTube) for an Intuitive Tag/Challenge.

    I thought I should also post this here on my blog b/c many of you don’t follow me on YouTube & in this video I share a lot of fun personal stuffs that I would really love to share with YOU.

    The Share:

    1.  Share your first paranormal experience that comes to mind

    The first thing that comes to my mind is when I saw a UFO when I was 3-years-old.  I still think to this day that it  was a UFO or possibly more than one even, started when I was about 3.  It never escalated to contact or anything like that, but it began my experience. A number of other incidences have happened over my lifetime as far as viewing, seeing UFOs.  I already did a video explaining that whole experience.  It was quite interesting.

    Keep reading here:  http://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/things-you-didnt-know/
    9.  Crystals for your living space & can I squeeze into an amethyst crystal?(practical crystal info to make your home a Happy Sacred Space)

    “Should there be a certain set of crystals or a “crystal mix” for rooms like your living room or living space?”

    I think that it’s not a “should”, but there are definitely things you can do to make your living space feel more comfy; more vibrationally aligned with the type of energy that you’re trying to bring in to a living room or great room living space.

    Usually, that kind of room is a room where everyone likes to hang out, several people will gather for anything & so you want it to be a space that has good energy within it.

    10. The MacGyver Approach to Crystal Healing (do you want to figure this crystal healing shizzle all out & rig it up on your own? Maybe, maybe not.)
    Teenagers sure are funny.

    I miss teaching them science in the classroom. It was so amusing to me that they had discovered older 80’s shows on Netflix that my generation used to enjoy; Walker, Texas Ranger, Magnum PI & MacGyver to name a few. And they would often come to me in the very hands-on, unconventional classroom that I ran, wanting to try to “MacGyver” something up.

    Of course, I always encouraged it (as long as it didn’t involve blowing something up!) So off they went with duct tape & paper clips seeing what they could cobble together. Hysterical!!

    Many of you have asked me this question on my Facebook page;

    “Why can’t I just teach myself all this crystal healing stuff with books or the info available online?”

    So, you want to MacGyver it up?

    The Art of Merging Botanicals, Gem Elixirs and Crystals

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness, Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Gem Elixirs, interview 6 Comments

    HM.Ina1

    Hi Crystal Hottie!

    I have another special treat for you today: another Crystal Healer Interview. Yay, right?

    Personally, it really stokes my passion for crystals to hear from others who are out there “boots on the ground” making a difference for themselves & others through the power of crystals. :)

    And I’m so grateful that I have so many lovely Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers who’ve decided to generously share their journey with us all here on my blog.

    Weeeee, I’m really fired up to introduce you to Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Master Ina Rosales, aka Ina the Herbal Contessa. Ina has also helped us in the past as a Crystal Content Manager for my courses…she’s got super-natural abilities to catch every little detail & make sure it’s all consistent. That’s just 1 of her many super-powers. She’s also a Gem Elixir Guru.

    It’s a true honor to share her here with you…

    Isn’t she freakin’ ADORABLE?!

    Ina shares with us the art of merging botanicals with crystals. Serious YUM!

    All set? Here’s Ina’s interview…

    ♥♥♥
    What brought you to the world of Crystal Healing?
    I have always felt a deep connection with nature.

    In my early 20’s I had a small organic farm where I sold herbs, flowers and vegetables at my local Farmers’ Market. It was a natural progression to merge the botanicals with the crystals.

    I believe in:
    “Sacrednicities”; the belief that the universe is conspiring on my behalf to shower me with Blessings
    …and that is how I was guided to Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy.

    The rest is crystal-history!

    What do others in your life think about the path you are on?
    I’m very lucky to have such tremendous support from both my friends and family. I believe more and more people are seeing and experiencing the healing energies of crystals and they are becoming more open to the idea.
    What do you love most about working with crystals?
    I love how simple yet so profound the results can be working with these beauties from the earth.

    They are gentle enough to use everyday and I love to use and see the results on my pets, too.

    I adopted a disabled, senior poodle with a neurological disorder that makes her spin. I gave her a Crystal Chakra Balance session that she absolutely loved.

    It was the most calm and relaxed that I’ve ever seen her!  I used the following crystals:

    • Clear Quartz
    • Amethyst
    • Blue Lace Agate
    • Rose Quartz
    • Citrine
    • Carnelian
    • Black Tourmaline
    • Hematite

    What 3 energy-work or spirituality books are you loving right now?
    Flower Essences and Vibrational Healing by Gurudas. I purchased this book about 20 years ago. It never gets old and I love to reread this treasure.

    Another great find from 15 years ago that I’m rereading is Aromatherapy and Subtle Energy Techniques by Joni Keim Loughram and Ruah Bull.

    …and The Language of Plants- A Guide to the Doctrine of Signatures by Julia Graves.  “This book is an eye-opener, showing us with many examples how to see plants in their entirety, and thus to know their essence.”

    What is your go-to crystal for grounding?
    I have always loved Hematite (non-magnetic).

    After taking Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy course and learning that Hematite is not only rich in the element (Fe) Iron (an element that I’ve always been fascinated with) but Hematite helps to entrain us back to our natural Dominant Oscillary Rate (DOR) which makes it a great grounding tool to balance the Root Chakra.

    I feel less dizzy and more calm and balanced when I use Hematite.

    Calendula, Black Lava Salt, Hematite, Black Tourmaline & Essential Oil Bath Salts

    Here are some vibrant gem-infused gem elixir (& other sparkly stuffs) recipes from Ina:
    Gem elixir time! Rose quartz + 1 tsp Neroli Blossom Water in Arkansas Spring water (where the finest quartz crystals grow naturally!)…for a happy heart

     

    This hair corsage uplifts the mood with the heavenly herbal scents, brings calm to an overactive mind, and Ginkgo one of the oldest plants on the planet helps the wearer to gather wisdom, clarity and focus.

    When using healing botanicals and crystals in this way, our energy is infused by, and merges with, their energy.

    Honey Calcite and Citrus Floral Water (another type of gem elixir) to invoke joy and quench the thirst on any day.

    May our journey be supported and nourished by the Earth Mother’s plant and mineral kingdom.

    Ina’s Bio: Ina is an Advanced Crystal Master,  Certified Herbalist, Certified Aromatherapist, Doreen Virtue Certified Angel Card Reader, Magick Maker and Devotee of Nature. Phew!! Ina provides Intuitive Crystal Healing Sessions infused with sound therapy, color therapy, botanicals and magnets.  Sounds divine, doesn’t it?

    3 Crystals to Mega Boost Your Self-Esteem

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness, Crystal Healing, Crystals, healing, self love, Videos 15 Comments

    spirit_quartz

    Have issues with worthiness? Self-Worth? Self-esteem? Self love?

    Well, I’ve got some crystals for you today!

    Yes, I’ve got some crystals to help boost your feelings of worthiness, or boost your self-esteem, your self-worth. 

    You know, a lot of us have issues with this.

    Because…maybe we’ve been bullied.  Perhaps, there are people in our lives that talk negatively to us or criticize us for every little thing we do. :(

    After a while you start to believe that stuffs.

    Keep in mind, they’re being this way b/c you’re not just like them, because of their own feelings of low self-esteem & low self-worth.

    These people make themselves feel better by coming at you, belittling you, talking down to you & making you feel that way.  That may be exactly where your feelings of low self-esteem, low self-worth come from.

    Of course, there may be more extreme things that people have done to you or circumstances behind it: abusive relationships, both physical & emotional that do that to you as well. ((HUGS))
    Crystals for Self Esteem & Worthiness
    Let’s get back to feeling worthy & the crystals you can use to help reinforce those feelings.

    Of course, in addition to your sparkly tools, you want to be working on yourself in lots of different ways:

    • self-care
    • therapy (group or one on one or both!)
    • journaling
    • surrounding yourself with supportive people
    • self-help books, etc.

    You know I don’t ever rely just on crystals alone, but I definitely like them as a healing tool & support to help us along with other healing modalities that we’re using to achieve the goal of whatever we’re trying to achieve.  In this case, it’s self-worthiness & self-esteem.

    White Precious Opal

    This stone looks like Common Opal, BUT it has an iridescence & some flashes of blue, green + red in there!

    White Precious Opal or any kind of Opal is great for boosting self-esteem. ♥ It’s also known for purifying & removing blocks.

    Rob Lavinsky, iRocks.com – CC-BY-SA-3.0 [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons
    Cinnabar
    Cinnabar is a powerful stone, great for boosting self-esteem!

    I have a blog post and video all about Cinnabar that I will link to here. A lot of red stones are good for boosting self-esteem, but Cinnabar is especially known for that.

     

    WARNING: Cinnabar is a stone is you want to be careful with because it’s a toxic stone. It has Mercury in it.  But I’m not afraid of handling it.  It’s not so crazy-toxic that I can’t touch it.  I just wouldn’t put this in my mouth or make a Gem Elixir with it or anything like that. And I’m always mindful of washing my hands after I do handle it. Maybe I’m a little too cautious, but it can’t hurt, right?

    Always err on the side of caution with any kind of crystal that may have elements in it that could be toxic, like Cinnabar.

    Here’s an affirmation that I really like for worthiness in general b/c…you know…you need to know internally that all of us, every single one of us, are worthy and that we deserve to receive good in all forms.  All forms, we all deserve it:

    We deserve to receive good in all forms.

    Spirit Quartz
    It has a slight Lilac-tone to it, or hue.  Some are more vibrant than others.  Look how purty-sparkly it is!

    Spirit Quartz is a great 1, again, for boosting self-worth, feelings of worthiness.  It’s also known for purification & protection; freedom from fear. Get yourself some Spirit Quartz if you need to boost that up.  And a cluster would be really good for sending out energy in all different directions, if you’d like to radiate that energy into your sacred space or office perhaps: send out that energy in all different directions!

    We all need a self-worth boost sometimes, right? Please tell me & our Crystal Hottie Community if you use these crystals & how you work with them in the comments below.

    Crystal Blessings,
