Attracting MONEY, Success + Abundance into your life with Crystals

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Grids, gratefullness, law of attraction, prosperity 30 Comments

We know that crystals have many amazing healing properties, but they can also be used to attract money, success, prosperity & abundance by being a vibrational match to that type of energy, that frequency.

And lest you start getting all funky on me b/c I mentioned the word “MONEY”, please go read my blog post here first b/c I’m simply not going to entertain any money funkiness over here on my blog.

So first things first. In order to attract all that good stuffs I just mentioned above…you need to have cleared your mind of any old thought patterns you might be harboring that tell you do not have enough, you’ll never succeed or that you’re lacking in some way. We absolutely can use crystals as tools & supports to help us attract what we seek. Like attracts like, so first we must re-define our way of thinking.

I know…that sounds like a tall order.

But—let me ask you. When I say the words “success, prosperity, abundance”; what’s the first thing that comes to mind?

For a lot of people, that’s going to be money.

Don’t feel bad if you’re one of those people—in our culture, we’ve basically been programmed to believe this from the get go.
Mindset Change
I bet you’ve heard the phrase, “Money can’t buy happiness.” I’d like to give you a different one to think about & perhaps integrate into your new abundance mindset (which is crucial if you’d like to use crystals to attract abundance). And that new mindset is:
Happiness CAN buy money!
Whaaaattt???

It’s true.

Happiness is an energy, a currency of sorts. Perhaps it’s not one that you can fold up & keep in your wallet or deposit into a piggy bank on top of your dresser, but when you’re able to cultivate a happy, positive energy about money—including not hating those who have more of it than you do, or seemingly acquire it more easily than you do—you’ll naturally make yourself more attractive to it.

How do I know? B/c I’ve been on both sides of that coin. I’ve been super poor, not able to scrounge up enough coins to go do my laundry, eating stale bread and drinking a diet coke for dinner, waitressing my ass off working double shifts while snarling my lip at the seemingly comfy people I was waiting on. They didn’t do anything to be hated on, but I just did b/c they were able to go out & enjoy themselves, were dressed well, drove a nice car & seemed to be doing well.

What a mindset I had! As long as I stayed in that cycle I was going to continue to attract more & more of that. And I did.
The Law of Attraction
I bet that’s a phrase you’ve heard a time or two before, too. If your attitude about money, success, prosperity & abundance in general—is that you’re lacking, that’s exactly what you’re going to have coming: not enough!

One of the best things you can is to take a good step back & look at all the wonderful, sparkly things that are happening in your life that you CAN be grateful for. It doesn’t have to be something monumental—though those things count, too!—it can be something so small that you might not even realize you’re grateful for it until you examine it a little more closely. And it’s one of the best feelings to realize that, while your life might not be exactly how you envision it, that there are plenty of things happening that you can, in fact, be super-grateful for. You might be far more prosperous & successful than you realize!

So now that we’ve talked about how you can begin to shift your mindset, let’s look into some other ways that you can start to attract more abundance and prosperity into your life.
Success & Abundance Attracting Crystal Grid
If you’re unfamiliar with the term…a crystal grid is:
a geometric pattern of energetically aligned stones that are charged by intention. They’re set in a sacred space in order to manifest whatever objective it is you have.
(BTW, I wrote a best-selling book all about crystal grids over here).

You may know I used to be a science teacher back in the day. I loved that job, but eventually, I wanted to leave in order to focus all my energies on my sacred crystal business. I took the scary leap in 2012 & did so successfully with a crystal grid assist! Here are the details on that specific crystal grid.

I LOVE to use crystal grids to support me in whatever my next vision is…and they do so beautifully each time.

Here’s a current one that I have working in my space now specifically for pushing my sacred biz up to the next level while also giving me plenty of soul-nourishment. To achieve this I needed to choose crystals that would enhance spirit & soul nourishment as well as business mojo.

Here’s what I chose…

  • My large amethyst point (I’ve affectionately names him Amy Bro) & some amethyst tumblies…for divine connection, allowing me to recognize & surrender to my spiritual power when needed.
  • Citrine smaller tumbled stones for the biz mojo energy! Citrine is known as the merchant’s stone & also assists with manifestation.
  • Clear quartz points for amplifying the energy of this grid & directing outwards..to the universe & beyond!
  • A citrine spirit quartz specimen – this piece was key for combining the energy of citrine along with that of spirit quartz which is about connecting with my higher self while also dispelling any fears that may come up on this up-leveling journey!

And here’s exactly what I did step by step:

  • I chose the Flower of Life symbol as my grid template (you can also print one out on paper).
  • On a few post-it notes I wrote some well-thought out affirmations to place under my large amethyst center stone & the citrine spirit quartz (I’ll be keeping those affirmations private, thanks. A girl’s gotta keep some stuff to herself).
  • Gave myself some time to just sit there among all the things I’d gathered, thinking everything through, infusing them with my clear intentions.
  • Arranged everything on the grid cloth very symmetrically ( I feel this is key in a crystal grid!)
  • I also added a few magazine cut-outs (tucked under the center stone); things that suggested what life would be like when my desire transformed into reality. Not COULD be like, but WOULD be like!
  • Voila! The completed grid. Take a look-see!

     

    And is this crystal grid working? You better believe it!!
    In fact, it’s working so well that I’ve just returned from a blissful rejuvenating & soul nourishing sabbatical for the past 2 months, while my biz continued to grow & support me, itself, my beloved students, the Sparkle Team and our larger community of Crystal Hotties. ♥
    Tweak it!
    One of the really fabulous things about this, too, is that you can tweak the crystal grid as your goals evolve. This is not a static thing.

    You can continue to work with your crystal grid, adding to it, tweaking it as you grow and as your goals change or get more fine tuned. I’ve certainly done that time & time again. My goals get more specific & detailed and I simply tweak away.

    Now, I know that it can sound like a mighty big undertaking, to totally shift your way of thinking. I know it was really hard to let go of beliefs & perceptions that I had programmed into me for decades…but you’ll truly be amazed when you realize how empowering it is to be able to create exactly what it is that you need in life & manifest it up.  And a crystal grid can help you get there even quicker!

    Attracting success, prosperity and abundance is not only empowering, but can be fun too. Heck , I know I’m having a lot more fun now than when I was too busy working double shifts waitressing & snarling my lip!!

    Give it a go Sparkly One.  Work on your mindset, get that sorted out, then gather up your crystals and tools and get creating!  You can do this, you can change your life and attract abundance and prosperity.  There’s enough for everyone.

    So, you gonna do it?   I’d love to hear about your money-attracting Abundance & Prosperity Crystal Grid.  Don’t be shy, share with me in the comments below!

    Super Blast Energizing Crystal Combo

    Hibiscus Moon Crystals, Gem Elixirs, Videos 12 Comments

    Let’s talk about a great Energizing Crystal Combo!

    Here I’m sharing this perfect little energizing crystal combination b/c it seems like a lot of us, including myself, could use a boost of energy.  A nice little energy shot.

    In fact, if you’re into crystals, (which you probably are right?!) you likely have these crystals readily accessible, Crystal Hottie…and if you don’t, you can get this combo pretty easily.
    Super Blast Energizing Wake-up Call Combo
    1.  Carnelian

    Carnelian is bright orange, an invigorating color and very easy to find.

    It’s in the quartz family & a safe stone to use, very common and relatively low-cost; an energizing crystal to work with.

    I’ve got a whole luscious post about Carnelian (+ a FREE gift) over here!!
    2.  Citrine
    Another crystal that’s easy to get a hold of and so great for energizing is citrine.

    It doesn’t need to be a natural citrine like the I show you in my video & in the photo below.  That’s an all-natural dark citrine point from the Congo.

    You might be more acquainted with citrine that looks like this.

    That will work too.

    This type of citrine is actually baked amethyst but it still works with the light frequency energy of citrine.  You can learn more about that in my classic blog post about citrine over here.

    You can tell the difference because the baked citrine is usually in the geo form of a drusy.  It’s also dark, dark, like dark iced tea & maybe orange as opposed to natural citrine which can be almost smokey, but always retains that yellow hue.
    Pow!  There you have it, your go to energizing crystal combo:   Citrine and Carnelian. I’m tellin’ you…it doesn’t get any easier than this.

    Now we’re going to add some more vibrational energies. Ya Ready?

    Essential oils

    I often have some aromatherapy essential oils warming in my oil diffuser and I love to pair essential oils with this crystal combination to really amp up the energy.

    ***I don’t promote any one single brand of essential oils as long as they are Fair Trade, Organic (if possible) and 100% pure.  Just no synthetics, thank you very much.***
    Peppermint
    Peppermint essential oil is good for waking up the senses.

    It works wonderfully well with the vibrational frequency of citrine + carnelian.
    Lemon
    Add a little lemon oil and this combination is ready to give you a big boost; ushering in lots of healthy energy.
    Smoothie Goodness
    In the above video I also had a green gem-ed out smoothie. Here’s the recipe for that I mentioned. It’s not particularly energizing per se, but it’s especially yummy & healthy…which always helps with energy eventually.

    I whipped up some:

    • banana
    • frozen black cherries
    • kale
    • silica gel
    • quartz gem elixir

    I hope you enjoy this Energizing Crystal Combo and that you try some of these additional tips to superblast the combo.

    Do you have Citrine & Carnelian? Peppermint & Lemon essential oils?  Give it a try & let me know. Does it boost you up?  Share with me in the comments below.

    What does it mean when your crystal disappears?
    So what does it mean when a crystal disappears? Just up & goes AWOL?

    • Sometimes people will find their crystals later & it will be completely unexplained. Like the crystal manifested itself in a little bag that was locked up somewhere in a safety deposit box – something really, really wild, like that…& it’s completely unexplained. Unless of course you had amnesia & don’t remember doing such a thing. ?
    • Or sometimes, the crystal is found by someone else in a different place entirely; not even in the same vicinity.
    • Or sometimes you never find the crystal again – its just up & left. It’s gone. It has disappeared, never to be heard from again.

    This is a very common question I get asked on a fairly frequent basis and there are a few ways to answer it…

    Detailed Manifestation Ritual for Summer Solstice in 7 Steps

    Hibiscus Moon ceremony 16 Comments

    The natural rhythms of the earth & auspicious days in the cosmic cycle are excellent times to cultivate new or deepen & renew our manifestation rituals.

    While our Western World Gregorian calendar places January as the start of our New Year, ancient & Earth-based cultures actually consider the vernal equinox to be the true start; and for good reason.

    The spring equinox represents a time to plant seeds & manifest. It’s a time of fertility, growth, and new beginnings!

    But when the Summer Solstice is upon us, as it is today in the Northern Hemi (Winter solstice for you in the Southern Hemi), we usher in a time to develop & grow those intentions that we planted at the spring equinox.

    Summer is a time of lush abundance & growth. 🙂
    Right now is the time of reaping rewards, harvesting and manifestation energy, Baby!

    And it ain’t just for farmers. 😉
    Crystals for Summer Solstice
    Here are a selection of crystals I like to use to vibe up with the very specific energetic frequencies of Summer Solstice:

    • sunstone
    • pyrite
    • citrine
    • amber
    • tiger’s eye
    • sulfur

    Notice a theme there with the stones?

    Yes, I’m very intentionally choosing stones from a specific light frequency (aka color) to align us with the correct energies for solstice time….like this shiny natural pyrite cube.

    Summer Solstice Ritual
    Here I’ve outlined the steps in my own potent summer solstice manifestation ritual:

  •  Go to your sacred space. Doesn’t need to be elaborate…just any space you can be quiet in, that is special to you & allows you to focus on the task at hand; surround yourself with crystals, summer flowers, music & diffuse some essential oils. OR you can do this outdoors: perhaps in your backyard or by the ocean or in the mountain air. Infinite possibilities!
  • Energetically clear the space you’ll be using.  You can do this easily with sound acoustics. That’s my favorite way… using a rattle, drum, crystal singing bowl or any musical instrument which calls attention to the beginning (and later, the ending) of your ritual. You can also sing or chant to do this.
  • Set your intentions for this ritual with a list. Since this is a time of development, growth & lush abundance, I try to set intentions related to that.
    • Is it time to grow your savings account? Grow your business? Increase the number of friends you have or a time to develop your education & learning or do some self-development? 
    • Write your 3 manifestation intentions down on a small piece of paper so you can refer to it. Be sure to include a specific timeline & be as clear and precise as you can but keep it about YOU.
    • (A gentle reminder: No manipulation of other people’s personal will as that’s something I never recommend).
  • Get Focused. First hold the special crystals you’ll be using for this ritual in your hands & then focus on the natural rhythm of your breath. Allow yourself to begin to breathe more deeply, filling your lungs all the way to the bottom taking the deepest breaths you’ve taken in a while & then squeezing all the air out of your lungs. Notice how your body responds.
  • Visualize each item on your list very clearly. Notice every detail. Imagine it happening through your feelings & senses. Do the same for your next 2 intentions.
  • Put your verbal energy into it & declare it to the Universe. While still holding your crystal(s) out loud and with energy say,  “And so it is!”…or some variation; Aho! Amen! So mote it be! …you get the picture.
  • End with sound acoustic vibration to seal the deal.  Again using your preferred method: rattle, drum, crystal singing bowl, etc.
  • Want more?

    You can take all week to still work with the energies of the Summer Solstice as we’ll still be in the vibration & energies for a few more days & you can take that time to go deeper.

    Once a year at Summer Solstice, I offer my Summer Solstice Meditation eKit where I go over specific herbs & essential oils you can use to further amplify the power of your crystals… along with a guided video meditation & detailed summer solstice ritual and a bunch of other goodies all bundled up in my Summer Solstice Glitter Bundle!

    Happy Sparkly Summer Solstice to you!
