Yes, everyone loves larimar.

They just do. C’mon…who doesn’t?

So, today I’m coming to you with the Dolphin Stone; Larimar. Ooooohhh Larimar. My larimar pendent handcrafted by an artist in Maui. I met the artist there & fell in love with the energy of this specific piece while surrounded by dolphin energy ♥ I love this stone. Known as the Dolphin Stone, some people even call it the Mermaid Stone or the Stone of Atlantis. As I show you in the vid, it’s a sky blue stone, although it does vary a bit in it’s intensity & hue. Larimar is a type of pectolite, which is a sodium calcium silicate that forms in cavities of balastic lava & found in only 1 place on the planet:

How To Build a Powerful Meditation Altar with Crystals

Hibiscus Moon Crystals, meditation 6 Comments

We live in a very fast-paced world, and it can be so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day busy-ness, right?

Meditating is an excellent way to allow yourself to sloooooow down, get grounded & remain focused on your game, achieving your dream or simply living happy, whatever your goal. An altar is a place that you can come to for meditation practice & it’ll help you to get into that meditative state with more ease. Your altar is a sacred space that will fill you with a sense of peace & well-being….if you take care to imbue it with those energies. And crystals can help, Jelly Bean.

Having your own meditation altar will give you a special space for a sacred ritual all your own. And, of course, crystals are a very important part of my altar.

Creating an altar of your own is easy to do & I think you’ll find that it quickly becomes one of your fav hang outs!

What your altar looks like will vary, depending on the kinds of things that appeal to you. You don’t need much space, but it is important to find an area that you can dedicate to your practice: your own personal sacred space. I have a chunky free eKit all about how to create your own sacred space with crystals. If you don’t have it yet, click here.

Your sacred space might be the corner of a room, the top of your dresser, even the glove box in your car. Remember that this a space you’re reserving to focus, clear & re-energize your spiritual energy.
How To Set Up Your Altar:

  • Take care to physically clean this space before you begin
  • You might want to burn sage or say a blessing

    [caption id="attachment_13642" align="aligncenter" width="607"] I handmade my sage fan and added a green aventurine crystal to the handle[/caption]

  • When this area is clean, some people like to begin by laying down a tapestry or a special piece of fabric (optional)
  • As you begin to set up your altar, think about your intentions. What is it you hope to honor with this altar, what sorts of things do you want to have as a focal point? What sorts of things help you feel calm or bring a sense of peace over you when you view them? These are the things that you will want to try to include on your altar
  • Pay attention to the things that call out to you, that you feel drawn to: perhaps there is a special candle or certain incense you like to use. Of course, crystals are very important for this, as are flowers, plants, feathers, seashells. Anything from nature is going to remind you to stay grounded & connected. You can also add a photo of an image or person that resonates strongly with you. So bring your favorites into this space
  • Candles & incense will be an important part of any altar. Some people like to use the candle flame or incense smoke as a focal point when they begin their meditation
  • The main thing to remember is that the altar you create should be calming & appealing to you. It will provide you with a sanctuary that you can return to again & again, encouraging you to cultivate a deep, meaningful & yummy spiritual practice. 🙂

I hope this blog post resonates with you & encourages you to tend to your meditation altar & sacred space or to create one! Leave a message in the comments below if it does. I’d love to hear about your altar. ♥

Crystal Blessings of Peace & Sanctuary,

 

 

P.S. I would LOVE {translation: drool!} to see your meditation altar & crystals so please come post them on our Crystal Hottie Facebook Page & share them with our community!

Can Moldavite be TOO Powerful?

Hibiscus Moon Crystals, energy work, meditation 54 Comments

Are there crystals that are just “too much” for us to work with? Perhaps some that we’re just not ready for? Like moldavite?

Moldavite?

Yep, it’s known as a “high-ascension” stone.

What does that mean?

High ascension stones are known for having powerful metaphysical properties & energy that are very easy for most to connect with…even for those of us who are usually dense to the energies. They are known to have a strong connection divine energies. Since these crystals & stones usually resonate with the higher chakras, working & meditating with them can be quite intense. So, that makes the idea of these stones very appealing.

But are you READY FOR IT?

I think you’re really gonna want to watch or listen to this video. It’s a sizzling-hot topic. 😉 You’ll see why I said that when you watch the vid!

I also give you some gentler crystal alternatives to start off with. 🙂

After watching, please join in on the convo in the comments below.
Can Moldavite be TOO Powerful?

Here’s that blog post I refer to in the video.

I can’t wait to see your comments! I would love to hear your story about how moldavite (or other powerful crystals) have affected you. Specifically, I’d love to know:

  • What’s your experience working with high ascension crystals?
  • Have you ever worked specifically with moldavite? What did you get from it?
  • What’s your FAVORITE high-energy crystal?

I also hope this post doesn’t scare you off of moldavite or other high ascension stones. Just take it slow & steady…work up to it & see how you do & what they can do for you.♥

Please also share this with your crystal-lovin’ friends so they don’t have to deal with the fiery chest-burn. That sucker was HOT, let me  tell you!

How to Begin Working with Crystals and Stones

Hibiscus Moon Crystals, dreaming, gratefullness, meditation 8 Comments

I’m often presented with this question:

“I LOVE crystals! I’ve been collecting them since I was a kid & I just know there’s something more to them but I don’t know how to get started with working with them on a spiritual level. How can I do that?”

Here’s what I suggest, Crystal Hottie.

Grab a few crystals or stones that you’re intuitively drawn to. Just start with 3 & don’t think too long on this.

Your 3 fav’s….go get ’em now!

Now, you’re going to choose 1 of your 3 stones to meditate with for just 5 min.  If you’ve never meditated before, I just mean relax your body & mind & hold your crystal. You can hold the crystal in your hand or place it on a chakra or you can place it in front of you where you can gaze & focus on it. Just be w/ it. Go ahead, try it now.

 

After your mediation, try to keep that stone by your side…whether it’s in your pocket or at your bedside, could be under your pillow or worn on a pendant.

Now, you’re going to do this with the same stone for about 4 days in a row.

Did you notice any messages, sensations or themes during that 4 day period? Any little lesson, special dreams, feelings, sensations or even direct messages coming through during your meditation?

Your intention + intuition are the most powerful factor in determining what crystal works best for you personally.

Some more tips to make this more pleasant & effective:

  • Remember when doing this to just work with 1 stone at a time so messages don’t get muddied up
  • If you can ramp up your meditation time to to 10-15 min. sessions that would be even better
  • Choose total silence or meditation music in the background but make so there are no outside distractions
  • Light incense
  • Light a candle
  • Have a designated sacred space or altar to do this work

After you’ve done this, you’ll have a great foundation to work from. You should know those 3 little stone babies pretty well & will have created a strong bond with them. You can choose to continue this with a few more stones if you like or start experimenting with the ones you’ve figured out so far. Use them in medicine bundles, use them with body layouts, in a crystal grid or just hold them when you feel a need for that special mojo that you’ve tapped into.

By the way…there’s an excellent side effect to this crystal exploration…STRESS RELIEF. Oh yeah!

Above all, be grateful for these insights & connections and so many more will come to you, Lima Bean. 🙂

Pretty simple, right?

Crystal Blessings to you on your journey, Crystal Hottie!
