Hey Crystal Hottie!
Since so many of you expressed to me how much you enjoyed reading my last “Crystal Healer Interview” & I am really also loving this injection of fresh, new & inspiring crystal perspectives let’s do it again!
So in case, you’re not quite sure what’s going on here…I have a few lovely Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers who’ve decided to step out here on my blog & let you into their gorgeous glitter-filled worlds.
Today’s message is about finding joy & happiness in your life’s purpose.
Mother of 2, Crystal Healer and Reiki Practitioner, Roberta so graciously shares with us her start with Crystals and coming full circle.
Ready? Here’s Roberta …
What brought you to the world of crystal healing?
I wish that I could say that I am a science nerd, but I’m not! Which actually surprises me because my mother was a science teacher…ironic!
We had a small set of stones at home that I would play with. I knew they were special in some way but I didn’t know why. I used to talk to them!
It’s truly amazing being a kid because you are so open to things that you don’t realize are spiritual in nature when you’re that little.
I didn’t re-connect with crystals until I started studying Angel Oracle card readings with Doreen Virtue, and came upon a book she wrote on crystals:
That’s when I researched crystal healing and came upon the Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Course.
What energy work or spirituality books are you loving right now?
When I start a new spirituality book I usually go for a marathon read of a couple of books from the same author.
Right now I’ve been reading some books by Gail Thackray. She is a medium and spiritual teacher who routinely takes people on pilgrimages to Brazil to visit John of God (a renowned spiritual healer who healed Dr. Wayne Dyer of cancer through a distance healing). I just finished up with The Gift where she talks about her visit to a psychic surgeon in the Philippines.
I had heard about psychic surgery, but I had no idea as to how it is actually performed until I read this book. I’ve gone to her workshops and brought home some small John of God crystals as well as a clear quartz crystal pendulum. The energy from these crystals is amazing!
Do any ridicule you for being interested in crystal healing? If so, how do you handle that?
So far, everyone that I have spoken to about crystal healing has been more curious than anything. It seriously opens up another door that they never knew existed.
Ridiculed? No…Skepticism? Yes.
It’s the kind of thing that they truly have to experience first hand to truly GET IT and make them a believer. One of my friends that was a volunteer for my CCH certification was one of the skeptics!
She since happily wrote a testimonial for me on my website saying how she is now a believer!
What crystal has had the biggest effect on you?
It’s a toss-up between amethyst and selenite.
Amethyst is my birth stone and I’ve just always had that connection to it. It’s my go to crystal for healing and protection, and it has a very calming energy for me. I have an amethyst lamp on my bedside table. It has a little red bulb that lights it up…so cool!
Selenite, I love because it has that angelic connection to it as well as being a stone of protection. I sweep my aura with a big wand that I have…and I like to use smaller ones to frame pictures of family members, such as my sister who has been battling cancer for the last year.
What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this path?
It’s kind of like my life has come full circle in a way.
I mentioned how I admired and played with crystals as a kid, but there was a huge lapse of time that passed before I re-connected with them again.
Even though I had a very positive experience in my adult life pursuing other career paths,
I can honestly say that I finally feel like I’ve found IT; the path that brings me joy and a sense of purpose.
I’ve also always been empathic and intuitive, having that ‘knowing’, being an avid listener to people’s problems, and wanting to help them release blocks that are holding them back in life.
What is your go-to crystal for grounding?
I’ve always loved garnet and I frequent a garnet mine in the Adirondack mountains in upstate NY. I have a nice little multitude of garnet chips as well as a nice raw chunk that is my go-to root chakra stone.
Any challenges/opportunities on this path?
My crystal healing/Reiki business is a labor of love! (Hibiscus here: keep in mind, Roberta is a single mom to 2 teenage boys!) Since I’m still in that transition phase, it’s challenging to find the balance between working full-time, taking care of my kids, on top of all the other motherly duties, to grow my crystal business. However, I know that this is my calling and where my happiness lies.
Roberta’s Bio: Roberta is a single mother of two teenage boys and has her own crystal healing/Reiki business. She recently launched her website: www.bodyspiritandstone.com
