Raise Your Vibes _ FI

Ever walk into a space & have it just

not

feel

good?

Have it feel yuck & stuck?

I know I have. That feeling is a very real thing!
It’s the vibrational frequencies of the space interacting with your electromagnetic field.
We naturally crave an environment that feels energetically welcoming.

A home or work space that’s vibing with feel-good energy is one that you feel at home in, that you feel positive in, that inspires creativity & good conversation.

It’s a place you enjoy doing your favorite things in or allows you to relax, meditate, read…and on and on.

Since a good-feeling space is not a vibrational match to negative feeling frequencies, you’ll be less likely to have arguments, sadness or even uneasy feelings in a space that’s been energetically-tended-to.

The good news is there are some vibrational things you can do (some involving crystals) to help make your space more inviting and even create a sacred space of your own. So let’s get into those:

9 Easy Ways to Raise the Vibration in your Home or Work Place
1. Clear the clutter & do some physical cleaning – I know this one doesn’t feel like much fun & not even very metaphysical, but it’s a must-do before you do anything else!

A space that’s filled with clutter or dust is energetically clogged & not allowing the energy to flow, not allowing the stagnant negative feeling vibes to clear out. So, get to de-cluttering first & then dust, vacuum & just make the space sparkle.

You’ll feel the change right away!

2.  Use essential oils – 100% pure essential oils (organic fair-trade & sustainably harvested preferred!) are high vib’ing. You can add them to your space in a couple of ways. You can actually use them to help clean in the above step.

Here’s a great video with more on how you can use them for cleaning your space:

Then once the cleaning is done, keep the vibes high in your space by using the oils in an oil burner or a diffuser.

NOTE: If you’re doing this in your work space be sure to get permission from those around you! B/c the oil scents may not agree with everyone & I’d like to keep you outta the trouble zone.

3.  Salt Lamps – these are great for inducing negative ions into your environment & for restructuring the energy of our environment. Plus they shine a soft beautiful & comforting light that does wonders for our energetic state. 

I have a full-on blog post all about salt lamps & their benefits here.

And these days you don’t even have to go to a specialty metaphysical shop to get them! You can find them in any home-ey type store. I found these in Bed, Bath & Beyond…

4.  Crystal Placement – simply place crystals throughout your space intuitively; wherever you think they feel or look best.

Just having the crystals in your space will entrain the energy around you. Whenever you enter the space, you’ll feel the difference from a space that isn’t as vibrationally aligned.

5. Crystal Grids – creating a crystal grid is a way to organize or structure the energy from your crystals towards a specific intention. So it’s more advanced than just placing a crystal in the space.

I have a blog post here and a best-selling book here that I wrote all about how to do a crystal grid. It’s kinda my thang. 🙂

Something I really like to do to restructure the energy of the space is to grid the entire room.
You can grid a room by simply taking 4 clear quartz points and putting one in each corner facing inwards towards the center of the room. Then just let them communicate with each other.
6. Sage Smudge –  Pick up a smudge stick, or loose sage (usually white sage is used for the purposes of clearing out) and burn it slowly (after you light it blow out the flame & it will cont. to smolder & smoke) in a fireproof safe bowl, dish or shell like an abalone shell. 

Allow the smoke to waft around & smudge the space.

Some like to use a feather or a ceremonial fan to control where the smoke goes a bit, like into tight corners & to help spread the smoke around.  It also helps to keep the smoldering sage stay lit.

NOTE: You can use a gem elixir smudge spray if the smoke from burning sage will bother you or isn’t appropriate in your work place (cuz it’s not).

C’mon, do you want to be caught standin’ there with your burning sage & smudge fan with the smoke alarm blaring & the sprinklers going off in your work building?

Didn’t think so.

7.  Sound Clearing – We can easily use acoustic energy to restructure the energy of our space (it’s all about sound vibrations). Very easy to do!

You can use any sort of high amplitude (loud) acoustic instrument, but I prefer to use something that’s pleasing to my ears:

  • tingshas
  • crystal singing bowl
  • Native American drumming

There are many more options than this. Take your pick! You may also choose to put on a CD or a sacred space music station like this one.

8.  Let Mother Nature in – open up the windows & grow indoor plants.

Mother Nature induces negative ions & that’s a GOOD THING for our spaces. So as much as possible allow nature into your space!

 

9.  Feng shui your space

I am no feng shui expert but I do believe in the powers of inducing the correct energy into your space through the proper placement & alignment of objects. For this I’m going to refer you to a good source to get you started.

And lastly, I’ve got a FREE Crystals and our Sacred Spaces eKit to help you pull all these elements together. In it, you get tons of sparkly inspiration on creating a sacred space all your own.

If you haven’t picked yours up yet…you can do that here.

How Often?
I’m usually asked how often we should do these things to keep our spaces sacred & energetically tended to.

My feeling is you can never do too much of it…but if I had to give you a guideline, I’d say shoot for once/month. And if something has occurred in your space that has made you feel uncomfortable or bad in any way then do something right then to raise the vibes.

Are you gonna try out some or all of these tips & raise the vibration of your space?  Do you feel the difference?  I know you will! Share your experience in the comments below.

Don’t Waste Time! Bust Through any Obstacle with My Obstacle Remover Crystal Grid!

Obstacle Remover

Today I’m going to give you a bit more detail on my obstacle remover crystal grid.

I’m listing out all the glitter-filled deets  & crystal components that make up this power-packed crystal grid right here in this blog post for ya… Ready?  Here we go!

Grid Components
I tapped into the energy of:

  • Bloodstone – strength & courage to face your obstacles while purifying
  • Kunzite – allows you to release resistance, also great for removing physical blocks & obstacles while assisting with emotional healing
  • and (since this is obstacle remover for my business) I used my polished Citrine point (powerful biz support, The Merchant’s Stone!) as my center stone
  • Obstacle Remover Gem Elixir Spray
  • …and of course, a Ganesha statue (the Remover of Obstacles)

I heard that Ganesha with the trunk going to the left is for good luck & prosperity.

So I found one that has the trunk going towards the left, although that was kind of difficult to find!  Most Ganesha statues have the trunk going to the right. **But I think that all depends on what your viewpoint is…right? So maybe it really doesn’t matter at all. 😉 **

This is my little dressing area that I had this grid set up in…

As you can see in the video, I lit my candles & I’ve got my amethyst staff that Lori Andrus custom-made for me overlooking the whole scene. ?

I also had the Crystal Balance Kick Ass spray in the little yellow bottle that I really love from one of our Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers.  I usually shake it up and then spray it a few times over the grid just to be all…Kick Ass“!

I also added some different essential oils to that spray kind of made it my own and of course it has crystals in it as well.☺ **Recipe given below to create your own!**

Finishing touch? Ganesha is typically honored with hibiscus flowers so I added some of those sprinkled in to the grid too (but forgot to get photos of that).

Since I know you’ll ask me about that green grid cloth I used there; I used to sell those, but no longer do and here’s why.

Instead I have a sustainable grid cloth alternative here!
Hibiscus Moon Obstacle Remover Gem Elixir Spray Recipe

  • 1 Clean and empty spray bottle
  • 1 organic hibiscus flower petal (optional)
  • 1 stone chip of Bloodstone
  • 1 stone chip of Pink Kunzite

High Quality Essential Oils of:

  • Lemongrass, 3 drops
  • Bergamot, 3 drops
  • Tangerine, 3 drops
  • Lemon balm, 3 drops
  • Fill rest of spray bottle with a 50/50 mix of distilled water & high proof vodka

Ganesha; Remover of Obstacles

Ganesha energy helped me so much at the end of last year & in this grid; moved that stuck energy and got the energy flowing again.

And this is the Obstacle Removal Mantra I used…

“Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha”

In other words…“Hey! Outta my way! Coming through!” You can read up more on the precise translation here.

You can even choose to chant along outloud with this wonderful video here. POWERFUL!:

This specific crystal grid helped me to bust on through some very stubborn & difficult obstacles. Following my steps here will allow you to move through any obstacles in your life, Chick Pea…like buttah! ?

How to Clear Negative Energy Out of Your Home FAST

Hibiscus Moon cleansing, Crystal Grids, energy work, Gem Elixirs, space clearing, Videos 6 Comments

ClearNegativeEnergy

I’m often asked…
Can we clear negative energy out of our home or room using crystals?
Yep, yep…we totally can!

What do I mean by “clearing your room or home of negative energy”?
Well, a lot of the time, when people enter into a room they can actually physically feel what I like to call “yuck & stuck energies” from “negative energy or negativity” and they want to clear it out.

Here are a few other blog posts I’ve written on the subject:

  • How To Deal with Negative People in 5 Sparkly Steps
  • 4 Crystals for “Protection”
  • Crystals Tips for Empaths & Highly Sensitive People

There are many ways to clear the energy, like sage smudging or using sound acoustics (as I demo in the below video):

In this blog post I’m going to focus on how to clear negative energy specifically with *crystals*.
How do you clear energy using crystals?
To clarify, what I’m talking about is mainly “purifying” the energy in a space or transmuting the energy using crystals, because they’re so great at doing that.

You want to make sure you start with “re-tuned” crystals; meaning that the crystal has been cleared of any previous energy & reset back to its dominant oscillary rate (or base vibratory rate). (Click here for my preferred energy clearing technique for crystals).

Now, I don’t think that crystals need to be cleared all the time. (And here’s why.)

But if you’re using them specifically for the purpose of retuning energy, transmuting the energy, purifying the space then you want to start with crystals that have already been retuned.  So go ahead & CLEANSE AWAY!

I feel the best way to do that is:

  • Gather the crystals up you’re going to use in a bunch
  • Use a crystal singing bowl (I recommend & use these…use coupon code: HM10 for 10% off your order!), Tibetan singing bowl or some tingshas to bathe & reset those beauties in sound acoustics; clearing them w/ the vibrations of sound. Sound energy is my favorite way to re-tune the crystals! It’s the easiest and the safest way to do it, believe me.
  • Crystals in Your Space
    1 thing that you can do is to simply have crystals present in your space that are large enough to emit energy in all directions.

    The larger the space, the larger the crystal you want there.

    Trying to climb into my large amethyst geode. ;)

    Size does matter in this respect.

    For this purpose, I wouldn’t use a single crystal point b/c generally, that will just send the energy up through the apex (that’s what we call the point) in 1 direction.

    A better choice would be a cluster that can radiate the energy in many different directions. A cluster has  many different apexes (appices) that point in all different directions so the energy can be emanating all over.

    Or you can choose something that’s cut & polished for the purpose of radiating energy in all different directions…like a sphere; like my HANDSOME Lapis Lazuli specimen here…look at those pyrite sparkles!

     

    Remember, the larger the room the larger the crystal needed! So if you’re trying to do this for a very big space it might be better to have a few crystals or a larger single piece.

    If you want to do this for an average size home or office then I recommend putting 1 crystal in each room rather than relying on 1 crystal to do the job for the entire house.  Or even doing a crystal grid to surround the property (more on that below).

    Gem Elixir Sprays!
    Another sparkly option is to create a Gem Elixir Spray; a similar practice to sage smudging, but uses the power of crystal vibrations in water to clear your space.  You would create a gem elixir spray with the specific intended purpose of retuning, transmuting, purifying the energy in the space. 🙂

    Sorry Crystal Hotties. Not for sale. I can’t keep up with production on these. They sell out as quickly as I can make them! So, YEAH! It works!!

    A gem elixir spray takes on the essence of the gem or crystal (& any other essences you might add to the mix).

    There are sooo many different, FUN & creative ways to make gem elixirs
    For energy-clearing your room you could try this gem elixir combo:

    • Smokey Quartz + Black Tourmaline Gem elixir spray.  You’d use those specifically  b/c those 2 crystals are well-known for transmuting & purifying energy in a space. These powerhouse crystals are ideal so that any kind of energy coming in gets transmuted to neutral.
    • Add some essential oils to compliment & enhance the energies choosing oils that are known for clearing space such as sage (specifically salvia officinalis or salvia apiana) for the purpose of transmuting energy in a space.

    Grid it!
    You can create a crystal grid to transmute the entire room, space or home!

    You can grid a room or space with either clear quartz to help purify that energy or even Black Tourmaline or Smokey Quartz to transmute.

     
    Gridding with Clear Quartz:

    • take 4 points of generally the same size
    • Put 1 crystal:
      • either in each corner pointing inwards
      • Or 1 on each wall, if it’s four walls, have one @ each wall pointing inwards

    Like I’ve said, this is not the only way to clear energy. There are many different methods.  But these are a few crystal tips you can try out, experiment & have fun with. 🙂

    Why a Chakra-Focused Crystal Grid is Sexy

    Hibiscus Moon chakras, Crystal Grids 2 Comments

    grid

    *snicker, snicker*

    Sexy? YES! B/c squeaky clean balanced chakras are sexy. Yes INDEEDY!!

    There are so many of ways to invite sexy health & vitality into our bodies & on several different levels: emotional, physical & spiritual. So, how about a novel way of working with your chakras? Hmmmmm?

    I love using crystals to work with the energy of our chakras. Yeah, yeah…most of us know that crystal healing involves working with crystals & the chakras in a physical way, but I’d like to present a slightly different way here today.

    Several years ago I actually had a student who created a chakra crystal grid!

    Now, I’m the self-proclaimed Queen of Crystal Grids…but this was new to me. I had never thought of doing this before! BTW, I’m always so grateful to my students for teaching me so much. It’s through their eyes & minds that I become a better teacher…but I digress!

    So I thought this was a wonderful idea. (She was kind enough to allow me to share this photo over the years of her lovely solar plexus crystal grid):

    Genius! Absolutely brilliant!

    See, she was having problems with her solar plexus. We had talked about different ways of balancing the solar plexus & doing the chakra balancing as I had taught her in the course.

    After having learned how to work with crystal grids in our Certified Crystal Healer course, she decided all on her own:

    “You know what? I’m going to do a crystal grid to balance my solar plexus, to balance & reclaim my personal power.”

    Yep! That’s sexy.

    Here’s what she did step by step:

    • printed out a solar plexus Sanskrit symbol in yellow. She used that as her crystal grid template (placed under the black cloth above)
    • used citrine & tiger’s eye to make the crystal grid
    • also printed out another picture of a chakra symbol & put that in a little picture frame
    • added a yellow lemon-scented candle
    • used essential oils that vibrated with the solar plexus chakra: lemon, lemongrass, peppermint, grapefruit (she used these to anoint the crystals, candle, the cloths, etc.)
    • added a picture of herself (placed under the center stone)
    • hand-wrote down a solar plexus affirmation. Similar to: “I have a healthy self-esteem. I am strong-willed. I express myself with confidence.”… affirmations that help strengthen the solar plexus & she placed that in the center of her crystal grid.

    She activated it & everyday she would sit nearby & do a little meditation with the grid; just working with it for a few minutes, giving it a little TLC, a little care & some attention & emotion. That’s how I always recommend you work with a crystal grid. (P.S. If you want to learn more on how to do that, I wrote a book about it). 😉

    After about just 1 week, she was so excited with the result she had gotten from doing this, she emailed me the pictures & told me what she had been doing. She said her confidence had bloomed & she was feeling so strong in her solar plexus. Her digestion had also greatly improved (a direct link to your solar plexus chakra). She felt that it had opened, cleansed & balanced & was channeling her full inner-strength!

    She goes, “This is so great you need to tell your students about this!”

    I was blown away & absolutely amazed. I thought it was the greatest idea ever; diving into the crystal energies & tapping into the power of a crystal grid to clearly convey your intention to source energy! Getting Source Energy in on the whole thing, communicating her clear intention across space & time, directing energy appropriately. POWERFUL STUFFS!

    If you know someone (or yourself) working to balance a particular chakra, share this sexy-technique with them by sharing this blog post. They (or you) may have a powerful break-through as well. 🙂
