Crystals for Working with Archangel Raphael | Angel of Crystal Healing

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Videos 14 Comments

 

Today’s video is about crystals for working with Archangel Raphael…the angel of crystal healing. Yes…we have one of those!

Now, I’m not an expert on angels or angel therapy…there are lots of people out there who are experts on this (maybe you’re one of them!), but it is a subject that comes up often because many people who are interested in crystal healing are also often attracted to angels & I’m often asked:
What crystals do you recommend for working with Archangel Raphael?
And I feel that Archangel Raphael is definitely an angel I should talk about because he aligns closely with crystal therapy + crystal healing.

Archangel Raphael is known as:

  • the Supreme Angel of Healing; all kinds of healing—healing yourself & healing others, emotional or physical.
  • the Archangel of all those who are healers, therapists or light workers of any kind.

His name actually means “God Heals” and “Raph” is the Hebrew name for “healer”.

So for all of us energy, body & light workers out there, he’s our guardian, our sentinel.

When you work with him closely, pray to him, meditate on him or whatever your practice might be… you look to Archangel Raphael for bringing you downloads or messages regarding any type of healing; whether it be for yourself, or on behalf of someone else. If you’re a healer or light worker, you may look to Archangel Raphael for intuitive messages on how to help someone else or even help the whole planet!
Light Frequency Alignment

Science Factoid:  Visible light (color) is just a teeny tiny little portion of a very large electromagnetic spectrum. It’s the part we can see. (We’re not able to see any of the other stuff. It’s a very tiny amount of the electromagnetic spectrum that we can actually see with our physical eye balls.)   

 

Archangel Raphael actually aligns with a very specific vibrational frequency on that spectrum; that is the vibrational frequency that we interpret as green light. Very specifically, emerald-green light.

Because of that specific color alignment, we can find crystals that perfectly resonate with that emerald-green light frequency because crystals, on our planet anyway, come in all the different colors of the rainbow. And we can easily find crystals that vibrate in that very specific green frequency. Crystals absorb some light & bounce some light off, so that means that they’re absorbing the light of all other colors, except for the color we see. In the case of a green crystal…it’s absorbing every other color, except for that green color, and bouncing it back to you, and therefore putting the emerald-green vibration into your environment. Pretty cool, stuffs!

Crystals for Working with Archangel Raphael
I’ve chosen 2 crystals to help us align more effectively with the energy of Archangel Raphael. And, of course, they visibly show us that emerald-green light frequency.
Emerald
So obviously, one of those crystals is emerald!

In my video, I  show you a very rough emerald in its natural state. It doesn’t need to be a fancy-schmancy big emerald ring. It can be something like my natural piece shown below, which you can find quite easily & inexpensively.

Malachite
The other crystal, or stone I should say, is Malachite.

[caption id="attachment_1960" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Smoothed & polished malachite[/caption]

Malachite is a stone that aligns with our heart chakra. ♥ In fact, both emerald & malachite align perfectly with our heart chakra.
Emerald is about healing, love, and compassion and while it does align, with the heart chakra it’s a lot more effective for physical healing, anything to do with the physical body, whereas Malachite is kind of like a therapist and it really digs down deep into any kind of emotional trauma or emotional healing needing to be done.
Sparkly Tips
One thing you can do is take the crystal & place it on the area of your body that is needing healing.  If it’s emotional healing, maybe you just place that on your heart chakra or on your third eye, whichever intuitively feels better for you.

Or you can put the crystal in your receiving hand & then go ahead and visualize emerald-green light bathing you. Just close your eyes, place that crystal there, and visualize that light, that emerald light just bathing & washing over you.

And I have an affirmation you can say to yourself while doing this with Archangel Raphael:
“Thank you, Archangel Raphael for flowing your healing strength and blessings, and for surrounding me in your emerald-green light, keeping me focused on good health and peace.”
If you’d also like to add another layer of vibrational frequency to this, you can add essential oils into your work with the crystals. I LOVE layering in the additional vibrational frequency of a closely aligned pharmaceutical-grade essential oil. It simply amplifies the work that you’re doing.
Essential Oils for Working with Archangel Raphael
Some essential oils that you can go to, ones that we commonly use for the heart chakra, are also oils that are commonly used for healing in general.  For connecting specifically with the energies of the heart chakra + Archangel Raphael I recommend:

  • Clary Sage
  • Rose Absolute
  • Bergamot

PLEASE NOTE: Make sure these are premium high quality, non-synthetic, organic, fair-trade essential oils. Brands I personally use & highly recommend are Young Living, Mountain Rose Herbs or doTerra.

Rose oil often comes in a synthetic.

We don’t want that.

But be forewarned…real-deal rose oil absolute is quite expensive, even if you buy a tiny little bottle of it…it can get up there. So keep it small. 😉

Ways you can work with the essential oils:

  • blend the essential oils together
  • use them individually
  • use a combo of 2
  • anoint your stones
  • anoint the area on the body you’re trying to heal (after diluting the essential oil with a carrier oil like jojoba)
  • or use them in an oil burner or diffuser while you’re working with the stones & saying the above affirmation

If you try any of these crystals for working with Archangel Raphael please share your experience below. Or if any of you have some suggestions of your own for connecting with Archangel Raphael, please post them in the comments.

Top 10 Crystal Blog Posts

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 2016!

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 2016:
1.  More Fake Crystals to Watch Out For! (I’ve got some new ones for ya…)
The artificial mineral market is continuing to grow & it seems there’s a “gap” in good reliable info on this sort of thing in general.

I get really super-duper passionate about getting this info out there & I feel I’m in a very unique position to do just that, being a former science department chair, having studied geology at the Masters level & being a Crystal Healing Teacher with a pretty large platform  gives me a great advantage…so how could I NOT heed the call?

I’m so honored to be able to serve in this way & grateful for being given the opportunity to do so!

2. 9 Signs You May be a Crystal Hoarder | Part 1
Have you seen or heard of that show “Hoarders“?

OR perhaps you know of some hoarders in your life.  Some of us have family members or loved ones that just popped into our heads, right? 

OR…are you getting that little niggly feeling that perhaps YOU might be a Crystal Hoarder?

Hey, it’s OK if you are…many of us get that feeling. I know b/c I hang with a pretty crystal-obsessed bunch of which I may be the worst obsessor of them all. 😉

OK, I know I like to joke around…but this is serious shizzle here. Watch this …

3. Navigating Depression; How Crystals Can Help

At one time or another, I’d guess that everyone has been touched by depression.

Some of us end up battling with it more than others.

I personally know depression from all sides. I’ve experienced it myself & have had several close family members who’ve had to deal with it.

I know that it’s debilitating & it can make you anxious b/c you’re so desperate to just get out of that feeling of hopelessness. There are many different levels & shades of depression & all may need to be dealt with differently.

4. How To Program a Crystal
I wanted to actually call this blog post: “How to TUNE IN + Set Your Intention using a Crystal”, but I KNEW that the title that I settled upon up there would grab way more attention b/c it’s a topic I’m often asked about…“How do I program my crystal?”

That’s the lingo everyone is using. So when in Rome…

OK, so let me set the record straight here from MY perspective.

And keep in mind that this is my opinion on what works best & is most efficient…my theory, my method from the research & work that I’ve done & have had many of my students carry out as well…this is precisely what I teach my students in my courses.

5. Are crystals alive?
Are our beloved crystals ALIVE?

Are there living “entities” in crystals?

Do they have consciousness?

Are they having a life experience?

Is it like a conscious being, the crystal itself?

My opinion is that, yes, they have a form of consciousness. It may not be in the same way we experience or understand that but, yes.

We may even apply some sort of “consciousness” to all matter…

6. Cutting Cords Using Crystals
First of all, you might be wondering what am I even talking about, cutting cords;  what does this mean?

Well sometimes we feel like something is tugging or pulling on our energy, our soul or holding us back or blocking us in some way;  and in the energetic healing world this is often known as “cords being hooked into our energy field”…being hooked into our actual electromagnetic field. Sort of like being caught up in cobwebs.

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

8. My Current Favorites | Crystals & Otherwise
It’s been a while since I’ve done a video like this … and I’ve noticed these have become quite popular now…for people to do “monthly favorites”

Personally, I kind of waffle back & forth on if I should do one of these again OR not.

It would be great if you could definitely let me know in the comments  (down at the bottom of this page), what you think… if I should do more of this? If this is sparkly enough for you?  Also, if you have recommendations for other stuff I should check out, please share with me!

 First Favorite!  You know it has to be a crystal to kick this off right?

9. Do Others Think You’re Woo-Woo Weird? 3 Steps to Own Your Sparkly Shit!
Are you uncomfy coming out of the “crystal closet“?

Afraid others will think you’re weird, not get you or think that you’re just totally out to lunch?

“What is all this sage burning, crystal collecting, essential oil rubbing wacko-ness?”

I get it. It’s hard when everyone around you is not doing the same thing.

And they don’t really get it.

Story Time!

This 1 time I went to the doctor’s office & had my doc probing around with her stethoscope to check my heartbeat and had to explain to her what those hard lumps were protruding from my bra. She had a complete & total poker face while I told her that “those were my crystal companions for the day’s energies that I wanted to infuse into my electromagnetic field”.

10. Crystal Energy Experiment: SEE the PROOF for yourself!
It’s Experiment Time! 

You know how I love to share science with you! And being a former science teacher, I really get into experiments!

Plus many of you are always asking for proof of the crystal energy I always speak of.

So, I want to show you the results of a crystal energy experiment using the Scientific Method that I recently spent some time doing…and that you can replicate for yourself (hallmark of a good sound scientific experiment!)

Crystals for Lowering Your EMF Risks…and WHY you should care

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, grounding, health 10 Comments

crystals for emf

First…

THE BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. I feel crystals should be used as a compliment to a sound holistic health plan & not as a replacement for regular medical and/or psychological care & consultation. Please check with a doctor first before applying any advise given here.

Second…

This is an updated & revamped version of a classic blog post. So much new info has come out around this subject that I had to include it & update here. Hope you find it useful! ♥

OK, have you noticed over the last few years people have become much more concerned with EMF (electromagnetic frequency) radiation & now a new possible threat; nuclear radiation in the atmosphere? AKA, EM Pollution.

We’re hearing more & more about cell phone radiation and how that can be harmful to our health. (Thank goodness the word is finally getting out about that!)

Some symptoms of excess EMF radiation are:

  • fatigue
  • joint & muscle pain
  • decreased attention span
  • memory loss
  • difficulty focusing
  • insomnia

BTW, these are the same symptoms of being un-grounded…of feeling Yuck & Stuck!
I feel there’s no such thing as coincidence & that this is directly due to too much EMF in our environments causing us to become un-grounded.
Crystals to Ward off EMF
In my Certified Crystal Healer Courses we discuss specific crystals & protocols for counteracting EMF pollution. Crystals you don’t want to use are any sort of silicate crystals: quartz, lepidolite, opal, etc.

Why? Well, for the simple reason that they easily slide into resonance with electronics & microwave radiation. That property is why silicon (what silicates & quartz [silicon dioxide] are made of) is so widely used in technology! It’s an excellent semi-conductor of energy.

Some ask me what sort of stones they can place around their computers and laptops to help protect them from any radiation coming from there. I feel the best stones to use for this sort of EMF protection are ferromagnetic (iron containing) stones such as:

  • lodestone/magnetite (these are essentially the same mineral, but lodestone is found naturally magnetized while magnetite is not)
  • hematite
  • pyrite

WARNING: be certain not to have any strongly magnetic stones near your laptop or other devices = can cause LAPTOP DEATH due to hard-drive being erased.

2 More Non-Ferromagnetic Minerals Ideal for This

  • Black tourmaline – (even though it’s a silicate). The reason I throw this stone into the hat is b/c it’s got just the right combo of elements & it has the added yin-benefit of having iron in it. Black tourmaline is known for its ability to transmute energy & due to it having piezoelectric as well as pyroelectric properties too. (You can check out those 2 blog posts if you want to really get geeky with this).
  • Another recent favorite for EMF protection is shungite (You can find out why in that blog post).
  • [caption id="attachment_11684" align="aligncenter" width="600"] These are 2 shungite pieces from my crystal grid that surrounds my wifi router.[/caption]

    Now! Here’s the KICKER that I’ve discovered!! Most of these are the same exact stones many cultures teach to use to ground ourselves!!! Again, no flippin’ coincidence. Don’t you just love when the ancient knowledge & the new revelations dovetail together like that? ♥

    Here are all my fav EMF-Curb-Kickin’ stones together…

    Other tips + techniques:

    • Make a lodestone (magnetic) pendulum, spin it through your EMF to strengthen weak areas (one of our Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Masters has created one of these for us & sells them in her shop!)
    • Protect yourself from so much cell phone use. In this blog post I talk about a receiver device that will do just that. Children should not use cell phones due to their higher susceptibility, reduce your own cell phone use & use a land line whenever possible
    • Place Kernite or Colemanite crystals in any low dose nuclear radiation environment to absorb; these crystals are Boron-based, thereby accepting & ionizing radiation
    [caption id="attachment_1941" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Kernite[/caption]

     

    [caption id="attachment_19172" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Colemanite[/caption]
    • Unplug your bedroom as much as possible (listen to Warren’s recording below for how’s & why’s)
    • Reduce or eliminate your use of wireless internet (you can put it on a timer so at least part of the time it’s not radiating throughout your house, physical body & auric field).

    Healing Magnesium Crystal Bath for EMF Detox
    Not only is this bath great for de-toxing excess EMF build up but this bath is super-relaxing.

    Magnesium is a magical mineral that increases serotonin in our systems which creates calm relaxation in us. This bath is perfect for use after radiation exposure of any sort (going through TSA, x-ray screenings, etc.) or even too much time on your mobile device or computer.

    I adapted the original recipe of this bath from the book Zapped (linked below). DISCLAIMER: (Children, pregnant women & anyone with chronic illness should avoid this bath or consult with their doctor first re: high water temp.)

    • 1 lb. Himalayan sea salt (can sub regular sea salt)
    • 1 lb. baking soda
    • 1-2 tablespoons of ionic Magnesium Concentrated trace minerals (stress from EMF & radiation pollution drains magnesium & increases adrenaline)
    • tub of very hot water (hot as you can stand)
    • 1 tumbled stone each of serpentine & rhodonite (magnesium containing minerals safe for plopping into your bath)

    Now just soak in the tub until it cools. Then after your bath, don’t dry off or shower off right away. You can choose to rub down with some magnesium oil or if you’re going to bed you can rub some on the bottom of your feet. You want to allow the minerals to soak into your skin.

    If you’d like to learn more about residual static build-up, wireless EMF, radioactivity & how to lower your risk and avoid EMF exposure around your house here’s a great recording of an interview with Vicki Warren, the past executive director of the Institute for Bau-Biologie & Ecology. Here she talks about all of these things & gives excellent advice on examining your home for EMF dangers! Awesome stuffs.

    I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book. Truly eye-opening! Be informed & get protected:

    I don’t like to fear monger but I feel so much of this info is under-reported and so easily remedied. I think its good to get this info out there from time to time & remind ourselves to clean up our energy + get grounded & balance.

    If you have other tips or ideas, please share. We’d love to hear them here! And if you found this post useful or helpful, please share it with others. ♥

    Crystal Q & A: Your Questions Answered!

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Videos 8 Comments

    Hey hey, Crystal Hottie!  Won’t you grab a cozy cuppa gem elixir tea & join me for a Crystal Q&A?

    You asked, I answered!

    We’ve got a wide range of sparkly topics covered in this Crystal Q&A session so watch & listen to the video. I’ve also given a summary + you can follow along with more links & glittery details below.   🙂

    Before we get started, here’s my…

    BORING DISCLAIMER: Crystals are a tool & support and should be part of a sound holistic health plan.  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. So in addition to doctors, psychiatrists, therapists and other modalities, crystals can be very helpful.
    What crystals would you recommend for children in school? 
    Some great crystals for children would be Hematite and Black Tourmaline, Amethyst & Rose Quartz. There are many super easy & practical ways to use them & I wrote lot’s more on this in this blog post:  Sparkly Ideas for Using Crystals with Children. 

    Also, here are some more tips for students of all ages:  Crystals to Help you Study Better, Faster + with Less Stress

    What crystals are good for decreasing hyper-activity in a child?
    Any light blue stone, like blue calcite or blue lace agate; or amethyst and rose quartz.

    They don’t have to wear it, they can just carry it with them.  They could have 1 in their pocket, or put 1 in a small velvet bag that you can find in a metaphysical shop.  Keep in mind, you don’t want to send them out with your best looking crystals b/c they are likely to get pretty banged up with kids, so just know that when you hand them over.  😉

    I just love these stones for their soft & gentle energy.  In fact, Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year are Serenity & Rose Quartz, so I gush all about these stones over here: Why Rose Quartz, Blue Calcite & Blue Lace Agate are the New Black.

     
    Do you need to be careful with Lemurian Crystals?  Is the energy really strong?
    I don’t feel that you need to be particularly careful w/ lemurian crystals.  It’s not something that’s common; that they’re “too strong”.

    However it’s all relative and subjective to YOU. For each individual the experience will be different.

    Lemurians are record holders.  They hold ancient information from Lemuria and even Atlantis. They have deep striations on the side that you can feel.  Think of the striations as a kind of bar code.  Information that’s been encoded into the crystal.  The Minas Gerais region in Brazil is the source of true lemurians. They have deep striations that you can feel by rubbing your thumb or finger over the sides. And they hold records.

    Lemurians are meant to be used to access that ancient information, ancient records from the past.

    As far as it being “too strong” to work with, that’s not a very common complaint.  But like I said that could be different for you. So give it a try.  The only way to know if it is to give it a try; to work with it yourself b/c it’s something you’ll need to personally experience for yourself.

    BTW…I also have a blog post here with more info on Lemurian Crystals.
    My son has a lot of stress and anger issues…he’s very explosive at times, what would be a good crystal for him?
    Lepidolite & aquamarine are 2 crystals that I would recommend.

    [caption id="attachment_10678" align="aligncenter" width="427"] aquamarine[/caption]

    BUT…

    the big question is … is he willing to work with the crystals? 

    It’s a matter of personal will, if he is willing to work with them. We can’t force this on anyone else.  It’s got to be him that’s initiating and is in agreement with this sort of energy work. Give him a selection, let him know what they’re for, what the intention is and let him choose which crystals to work with.  If he’s open to doing it, he’ll pick the crystal(s) that he is being drawn to & that’s a huge part of the equation in what stone will work best for him.
    Do you have any experience working with Chlorite?
    Yes, Chlorite included quartz!  It’s a very effective healing crystal…great for healing of all kinds.  Plus, it’s also a great crystal that carries the energy and is a vibrational match for prosperity & abundance.

    [caption id="attachment_14252" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Natural Chlorite Quartz[/caption]

    I do talk about Chlorite quartz in my super popular FREE Crystal Fakes eBook.  Do you have your own copy?  If not, you can grab it right over here!
    Do you have crystal suggestions for worry and stress?
    Again, amethyst and rose quartz.  Those are both ideal for stress relief. ♥ They seem to great for a lot of different things, huh?

    Additionally, here’s my blog post on crystals to help relieve anxiety that might be helpful as well.
    How do I safely clean my crystal in matrix without harming it?
    I physically clean my quartz crystals with a certain type of acid. But you kind of have to know your crystals well and know the chemistry before you dive in and clean it up w/o causing any harm to it…or to yourself.

    Here’s the low-down on How I PHYSICALLY Cleanse my Quartz Crystals. Proceed with CAUTION.
    Do you have Crystal Suggestions for Postpartum Depression?

    Rose quartz, moonstone, jade & unakite are the 4 stones I recommend for anything pregnancy or fertility related.

    I’ve written much more on that topic including suggestions on how to work with that crystal-quad over here:  Crystals for Fertility & Pregnancy

    For really deep-seated or lingering depression, I suggest you add in amber or copal.  That sunny crystal combo is well-known for helping peeps bust out of depression.  And I have more tips for navigating depression over here.
    Are raw crystals best to work with, or are polished stones just as good?
    Great question! Whenever possible I prefer to work with a crystal that is uncut + unpolished because it has a stronger vibrational frequency.  For example, I prefer to work with a natural quartz point rather than a cut & polished one, if quartz is what I need for my crystal healing work.

    But say I want to work with selenite…raw selenite is not ideal to work with in a crystal healing session because it splinters off easily, its very friable or brittle. For practical reasons it makes total sense to go with a cut and polished piece, like a polished selenite wand. 🙂

    Want to learn more about my take on working with Cut or Polished Stones vs. Natural?  I’ve gone in deep right here.
    What are good stones for opening the 3rd eye?
    There are many stones I can recommend for this, but one that’s relatively easy to find, is pretty inexpenisve & many of us have in our collections is amethyst.

    This Third Eye Crystal Work is such a big topic, & I’ve received so many questions about this over the years that I’ve written a 2 Part blog series on awakening your pineal gland. Check it out:

    • How To Awaken Your Pineal Gland with Crystals ~ Part 1
    • How To Awaken & De-Calcify Your Pineal Gland with Crystals ~ Part 2

    In case you’re interested…many of the questions I received here speak to the chemical and geological composition of the crystal along with the metaphysical.  That’s the type of stuff I love to teach all about in my courses Certified Crystal Healer Course as well as in my Advanced Crystal Master Course.

    I hope you enjoyed this Crystal Q&A as much as I did & got to learn something new here today.  If you’ve got experiences to share on any of these crystal topics please tell us in the comments below!  I love to hear about your crystal connections.♥

    Crystal Blessings,
