Are you cut out to do this work?

To be an energy therapist, a light worker, a crystal healer?

Every now & again I like to do a post like this so people know what sort of traits make for the most successful practitioners. After years of receiving, giving, teaching & certifying others to do this important work & watching those who are successful at it, I think I have a pretty good idea.

I also want to make sure that we attract the right kind of student here at the HMCA. I love you all…but we’re not all cut out to do this work & some people have different expectations.

  • I know that many get intimidated thinking “Who am I to be healing anyone?” Here at the HMCA, we realize & teach that we can all heal each other & that healing is a 2-way street…both the facilitator & the “heal-ee” exchange & receive healing energy. Heck, if we waited for all the healers to be PERFECT before they did any “healing” for anyone else….we’d all be waiting a LONG FREAKIN’ TIME!
  • If you’re drawn to being a crystal healer or light worker, you also need to know that this is most likely something you volunteered to do, a sacred contract you agreed to fulfill in this life…before you were even born, Chick Pea! You’re “pull” towards doing this sort of work is most likely your gentle reminder of  your life’s purpose to better our planet & facilitate healing in others. Feel into that now. How does that feel? Do you feel like you’ve just been reminded of something? Does it feel familiar or is it even triggering an “a-ha!” moment for you? If it is, pay close attention there.
  • Now to get really specific, if you’re looking to be spoon-fed dogma & forced into “set in stone” beliefs & not do any of your own self-exploration & inner work to see what’s most in alignment with your own inner knowing, then my course is not the right one for you. I know there are some healer courses out there that force certain doctrines without offering any info on “how” or “why” & some prefer it that way. They just want to be told what to believe & not question it. But that ain’t how we roll over here. I prefer to empower our students. 
  • Along the same lines, if you’re looking for a course that simply spews out crystal properties for you to memorize (“this crystal does this, this crystal does that”) then my course is not the course for you. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that…there are other courses out there for you if that’s what you want. But my method is all about really getting to know your crystals on a whole other level while learning the science behind how they work & taking a more personal approach to that.
  • Now this is the ONE thing that is the BIGGEST obstacle that get’s in the way. If you can’t get over this one…then no, you’re not cut out for this shiz: You must understand that when you really get down to it…YOU will not be doing the actual healing or shifting of energy. Ego gets in the way & sabotages us here. Yes, I know this from my own experience! Instead, you act as the conduit or the “hollow bone” for Source Energy to flow through. I mean this in the nicest way possible, but …you need to get ova yourself. 😉

OK, now that I’ve covered who it’s for & who it’s not for…if you’re interested in doing this thing with us…this is your last chance to enroll for the Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Course for 2015! We’re closing the doors soon.

Do you have a calling to work with the crystals?

That calling?

It’s one that could totally change your life’s path. My Certified Crystal Healer Course will allow you to create a life in total alignment with your dreams + desires.

We have students from all over Mama Earth for you to connect with in our private forum; The Crystal Cave. The Cave is a place to create friendships & mingle with other like-minded people. And I must say…our students are simply the BEST peeps in the world!! I mean, hey! They love crystals! What more do you need to know, right?

Once, again…if this is calling to you, I’m enrolling now for the last time in 2015 & enrollment closes on Friday, Sep. 4!

[Tweet “Do you have a calling to work with Crystals? ~ #HMCA Certified Crystal Healer Course.”]
So, are you cut out for it?
Would you like to start a wonderful & exciting career helping people to improve their lives using crystals?

Is this your life’s purpose to fulfill?

You can learn more + enroll right here.

If you’re ready to take charge of your future, learning about & expressing your special gifts, talents & spiritual abilities while also making a positive difference on Mother Earth, I’d be honored to help you make that happen!

I also want you to know that if you’ve determined you’re just not cut out for it or if my course isn’t right for you – for whatever reason – I hope to still have the opportunity to serve you & have you be a part of our community, Crystal Hottie. 😉

Crystal Blessings,

 

Navigating Challenges & Finding Joy

Hibiscus Moon amethyst, Crystal Healing, interview 5 Comments

Crystal sand bath

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.

I’m so happy to introduce you to HMCA Certified Crystal Healer Roberta Haley, CCH of www.bodyspiritandstone.com.

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!

However, I always remember loving to go visit the Museum of Natural History when I was a kid and I could spend the whole time in the Hall of Gems and Minerals.

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.

[Tweet “Navigating Challenges and Finding Joy #CrystalHealing”]
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?
Garnet!

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

Drawing Inspiration from your Crystal Healing Practice

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, energy work, grounding, health 9 Comments

Hi Crystal Hottie!

I have a special treat for you today! Remember when we used to do those Crystal Healer Interviews here on my blog? I very rarely accept guest posts, but from time to time I like to bust out of that model & invite some inspiring Crystal Workers into my space.

I know many of you soooo enjoyed hearing from others who are also passionate about using crystal therapy everyday. It fuels us to keep doing more of what we’re doing, right? And then go out & share it with the world. :)

Well, the Crystal Healer Interviews are back! 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.

I’m so happy to introduce you to Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Master Angie Yingst of AngieYingst.com. I am so blessed to work with Angie as she is also part of our Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy Faculty as one of our beloved Crystal Coaches.

It’s a true honor to share her here with you.

Angie shares with us how she continues to draws inspiration from her crystal healing practice among many other motivational tid-bits.

Ready? Here’s Angie’s interview…

♥♥♥
What brought you to the world of Crystal Healing?
My sister and I would lay stones on the chakras in a completely intuitive way during Reiki sessions with each other.

Then Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy started showing up everywhere I went on the internet, plus I subscribed to the newsletter. Even in day-to-day life, people would randomly say things like, “I’m drinking hibiscus tea under the full moon.” I realized I needed to take the path unfurling in front of me.
What is your most favorite crystal in the world and why?
That is like asking which is my favorite child! I love the dark grounding stones, particularly love garnet and black tourmaline.

a large almandine garnet

I think grounding is the key to all spiritual work from psychic work and meditation to dealing with bad drivers and temper tantrums.
What is something new that you’ve learned about crystals that you didn’t know before you took the course?

The science behind why crystals work remains the most important aspect of taking the coursework.

And not just science in one class, but throughout the coursework in the Certified Crystal Healer coursework, and the Advanced Crystal Master coursework. We are given examples, studies, links, books, more articles, and it just helps me volumes in my day-to-day client work. I am incredibly passionate about that part of crystal healing. Working as a Crystal Coach for HMCA students helps me stay in that mindset of the science behind what we do.
What do others in your life think about the path you’re on?
My husband works in the medical field, and could not be more supportive.

I believe medicine is moving toward a more integrated approach rather than split into two factions. Allopathic medicine and complementary medicine can work hand-in-hand for one amazing path of healing.
What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this path?
Realizing that I am not special nor am I capable of “healing” anyone.

My job is to raise someone’s vibration so they can do their work more easily or begin that process of energetic alignment with their intention.

I pray before every session that the person on my table receives the healing for their Highest Good. Then I do what I was trained to do as an Advanced Crystal Master and a Reiki Master/Teacher. I am simply a channel for healing energy.

I place stones quietly, perform Reiki without making it about me, practice meditation so that my mind can be a blank slate when I’m entering the auric field of my client, and introduce crystals in a way that empowers my clients and students. These are all part of that larger humility we need to accept when working as healers.
How do you navigate being a crystal healer and a mama/teacher, etc. on a daily basis?
I blend them together quite naturally–

  • mother
  • writer
  • artist
  • crystal healer

In meditation the other night, I just kept hearing: “You are the Mother” and I saw myself holding my babies, then working on the client in session, nurturing their soul into their next spiritual incarnation. Then painting, and birthing art from conception to finished piece.
What is the primary way you utilize crystals in your practice?
I lay stones on the body. I also teach crystal workshops each month on a topic of interest–this month is Intuition, next month is Empowerment–and my co-teacher Kate and I talk about ways to use crystals around this topic. They are really incredibly powerful classes.

We also teach day-long workshops on crystals. In those classes, we make gem water, create grids, lay stones on the body, meditate with crystals, and discuss crystal healing.

I also do distant crystal healing sessions.

From where do you draw inspiration in your crystal practice?
Everywhere.

I am constantly studying, learning from my colleagues in groups online, Facebook, and through crystal healers I admire, like Hibiscus Moon and Naisha Ahsian…and researching.

I have grown in my practice, and find that information comes to me in session that I integrate and learn more about on my downtime. I also take classes that interest me, knowing that I can incorporate it into my practice, if I resonate with it. I do not limit myself to one modality, and see my gift as being able to take these disparate ideas and bring them together for my clients.
[Tweet “Drawing Inspiration from your Crystal Healing Practice. http://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/inspiration-angie-yingst/”]
What 3 energy-work or spirituality books are you loving right now?
I am reading Shamanic Reiki by Llyn Roberts, which is so powerful and reads so true to me.

I’m rereading the Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life by Drunvalo Melchizidek.

And right now, I keep revisiting the book Crystalline Illumination: The Way of the Five Bodies by Katrina Raphaell. I have been incorporating her techniques and ideas into my sessions and my clients move mountains after the vibration we raise.

Do you have any advice for anyone who is considering this path?
Know yourself and do your own spiritual work. That is the first thing I can recommend.

Go see healers, psychics, shamans, vibrational healers, energy workers, and pay attention to what works for you and what isn’t working. Ask questions. Find mentors and teachers, and take classes. Follow the path that unfurls in front of you without pushing. I always wanted to be a medium, but it is not my gift. I would have been miserable doing that anyway.

Be the healer whom you would want to see.

Angie’s Bio:   Angie  is an Advanced Crystal Master, Usui Reiki Master/Teacher, Tarot Reader, Writer, and Sacred Artist. Angie works out of Alta View Wellness Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where she sees clients for private crystal healing sessions, as well as facilitates monthly crystal workshops, teaches classes on Tarot, sacred art, and crystal healing, and leads moon circles and meditations. She also creates jewelry through her shop the Moon + Stone Healing. Angie writes about crystals and tarot on her blog. http://angieyingst.com/blog. And you can find her at http://angieyingst.com.

Hibiscus again here…

Isn’t Angie amazing? Now you know why I had to have her on the Sparkle Team to help mentor our Crystalline Cohort students. She’s walking cosmic-inspiration in such a well-grounded package. There are absolute golden nuggets of wisdom in this interview. I hope you caught them all. 

Thank you Angie, for sharing your personal path with us.

    Crystals Tips for Empaths & Highly Sensitive People

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, grounding 19 Comments

    Empaths.Chakras

    Time for another Crystal Q&A about Crystals for Empaths!
    In this session, we talk about a question that comes up often on my Facebook Page.

    A question about crystals for empaths…

    And so, I’m thrilled that this question came in from Jody which prompted me to make this video for YOU, Crystal Hottie…b/c you may be wondering the same thing!
    But first…let’s get into explaining a bit here…
    In case you didn’t know, an “Empath” (as defined by Urban Dictionary…love that dictionary!) is:

    A person who is capable of feeling the emotions of others despite the fact that they themselves are not going through the same situation.

    The ability to pick up on & feel/experience the energy of another can be seen as a gift b/c that extra info can allow you to empathize with others or see things from another view-point.

    Or it can be seen as a curse b/c it causes you to be bombarded by extra feelings & emotions you may not want to be dealing with at the moment.
    So what can you do?
    Steer clear of becoming overwhelmed.

    How?

  • Be selective of the situations & environments you place yourself in
  • Have tools & supports at the ready (like crystals & stones)…there are many other tools & supports but I’ll save that for a future blog post.
  • What are the best crystals for empaths & highly sensitive people?

    Ok, Yes… we’ll dive into that in a minute…

    Backing up just a little bit – in this video; Jody also mentioned that she is “new to crystals”. I love a newbie! (dropping into the crystal groove + all the glitter of new healing possibilities!)  Welcome to the world of crystal healing! 😉  I’ve got lots to share!  For starter’s here’s a blog post I’ve done on the 5 crystals that all beginners should have in their crystal kit 😉

    So I’ve chosen 2 unexpected crystals to present to you in this week’s featured vid. The theme is going to be choosing crystals that are both grounding & protecting to assist empaths & highly sensitive peeps.

    Watch this:

     

    Purple Jade – this mama earth beauty is all about spiritual knowledge & associated with the crown chakra & 3rd eye chakra (as well as the Earth Star!!!) It’s a super stone for protecting empaths.

    Another fab crystal for empaths is magnetite…

    Magnetite doesn’t always express itself in a crystalline form that we can see with the naked eye.  But when it does…whoa, Baby! It’s a metal & naturally magnetic, therefore, it helps to align, balance & ground energies.  Magnetite can  balance the polarities within our electromagnetic field while helping with psychic overload or taking on too much energy picked up by light workers & energy healers.

    Sure hope you’ve enjoyed this Crystal Q&A!  If you are an empath or you know someone who can benefit from this information please share!  Tell me, as an empath, have these crystals, or others, worked to help you? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

    Crystal Healing, Protection & Blessings,

     

    I Have a Confession to Make

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, energy work 33 Comments

    step1(29)

    I have a confession to make.

    A few months ago, I was in a bad place…I’d missed a lot of energy healing sessions, meditations & even self crystal healing. My Energetic Hygiene was pretty bad at that time. Embarrassing really…I had the aura-equivilent of hairy-unshaven legs.

    *Sigh* Yeah…the lady running a Crystal Healing Academy hadn’t made Energetic hygiene a priority. Doing the very thing I warn all my students about.

    I was just off a long period of supreme self-care, inner work & tip-top energetic hygiene. But…I got busy & fell off the wagon. It started with my scheduled healing sessions getting cancelled for one reason or another, then many biz things taking over, then family relations with major health issues, lots of travel required, eating & exercise hadn’t been great either. I finally succumbed to a bad cold after not being sick for many years! That was the major wake up call.

    Now, I won’t complain that I don’t have time to get the shiz done that I need to, because we all know that is a lame excuse. I know you need to MAKE TIME to do the things we know  are important. Time is all relative & it’s totally up to you.

    I KNOW THIS!

    What happened was that I made the lazy, yet very conscious decisions not to make consistent Energetic Hygiene a  priority.

    But WHY? It’s not like this is exercise that I would be sort of dreading. This is pleasurable stuffs! Maybe I subconsciously felt guilty about “indulging” in myself? But I KNOW & teach the whole Oxygen-Mask Theory of Self-Care. I know I’m no good to anyone else if I don’t care of myself first. I’m always preaching that self-care is essential to living a healthy & well-balanced life.

    I know this so very well.

    And yet…

    I still fell off the wagon.

     

    I’m telling you all this b/c I just want you to know that NONE of us are perfect. We’re all here on Mama Earth to learn & continue to strive to do our best. We fall down…and this is our test.

    Will you get back up & press on, continuing to strive to THRIVE & always attempt to live at your Full Potential?

    Or will you just say “ah, it’s too hard. I didn’t see enough of a change. I give up. I quit.” And then later wonder how it all got so turned around & grim?

    Once I realized what I was doing I had a good pep-talk with myself & then I knew as soon as I felt well I’d be back at it FULL FORCE.

    And guess what?

    Despite being lazy about it for 2 months or so, I attended a sound energy healing/mediation session bringing along my own crystals & I was back at it with passion & conviction.

    Crystals, yoga mat & back jack (sprinkled with magical cat hair from Topaz) in tow. I was back!

    In addition, I got so much out of this session, my energetic sheath felt stronger than ever!…despite thinking that I had totally lost it due to lack of momentum or something. Nope…not at all.

    We’ve all been there: all gung-ho about it for a while, all excited to do this stuff…especially when it’s all new to us & then something happens, we get busy, life gets in the way or we get bored & our enthusiasm wanes.

    I feel all our passions go through cycles like this. Like the Moon & the tides, our passions ebb & flow, but if we take control we can make sure we never lose those passions that we know are necessary & good for us. And then the passion returns again.
    So here are words of motivation for you if you’ve fallen off the Energetic Hygiene Wagon:

    • Every meditation or energy session counts…even if its only 5 min. long. It all helps, adds up & is good for us.
    • If you can only stop & sit & do a mini- 5 min. session on yourself 1/week that’s better than nothing! DO IT. It will keep you in the game. 😉
    • If you can manage to book a session with a professional healer, having it in your calendar greatly helps to keep to it: whether it be a mediation class, a crystal healing session (With a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer if you really want something out of this world), a Reiki session, etc.
    • Schedule something bliss-filled on your phone’s calendar (set a reminder); like a crystal-healing bath. Even if it’s just 10 min. long. 
    • Use a Meditation App on your phone to remind you sit at a certain time & meditate for just 5 min. This is great one!
    • Make healthier decisions in other areas of your life (sleep, exercise, diet, people you spend time with, bad habits) & this will keep the momentum going & will spill over into your Energetic Hygiene area.

    And please don’t be hard on yourself for what you didn’t do or how you messed up. I’ve tried that & it helps no one. It just makes things worse. Its part of being human. Accept. Get up. Brush off. Keep on truckin’ w/ a smile on your face. It’s all part of this fun Mama Earth School.

    What other ideas can you share in the comments below to help when 1 of us Crystal Hotties falls off the Energetic Hygiene wagon?

    Super-Sized Crystal Blessings to you!

    How to Start Using Color Therapy & Crystals

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing 10 Comments

    I was doing some root chakra healing on this day!

    Color therapy is often used in alternative healing involving vibrational medicine. See, color is simply 1 form of visible light, aka electromagnetic energy.

    EM energy = light…one in the same.

    All the colors we can see within the visible spectrum carry their own unique vibration of this energy. Now, the color of a crystal or stone plays a really important part in how it will be used for healing.

    See color, (or more specifically “light”  in various frequencies that we can actually see with our eye balls) is just a teenie-tiny part of the electromagnetic spectrum (EM spectrum). The colors (light frequencies) arrange themselves in order of decreasing vibrational wavelengths. Of these specific light frequencies, red is the longer wavelength (lower frequency) & violet is the shortest wavelength (higher frequency). I haven’t lost ya yet, right? Stick with me here, OK?

    Actually…everything on the EM spectrum is a type of light. Just a little smidge of the spectrum is the visible light that we can see with our eyes.

    Now, the color of a crystal or stone plays a really important part in how it will be used for healing. As I’ve explained above, color is way more than just something that’s pretty! We may find that we’re drawn to a specific color, that we often wear the same color, or that just seeing a certain hue makes us feel better, uplifted, joyful.  This makes total sense when you consider that each of our chakras correlates with a specific color:

    So how does all this tie into healing with crystals?
    Let’s consider tanzanite. You’re probably used to seeing it as a vibrant, blue, indigo or violet gemstone.

    Tanzanite. Photo credit: Rob Lavinsky / iRocks.com Natural tanzanite. Photo credit: Rob Lavinsky / iRocks.com

    In its natural state, however, tanzanite is usually a greyish-brown tone, a combo of purple, blue & green. Lab heating at low temps brings out the stone’s stunning blues & purples (rarely, they do appear that color naturally).

    So, due to that stunning blue color, it should come as no surprise that tanzanite is a much sought after high ascension crystal–blue, indigo & violet–correlates with the throat, third eye & crown chakras. I can tell you I’ve personally experienced its amazing power in these areas! But when people learn that its original color is grey or brown they wonder how this is so.

    Citrine is another great example of this. Vibrationally, it makes complete sense to me that lab-heated citrine would resonate well with my solar plexus chakra. Citrine is yellow or gold, and it is no coincidence that this is the same color that correlates with your solar plexus chakra. Yes, even though this stone may have started out as a light violet.
    So let’s get into how this works
    I teach in my courses that in order to understand where on the EM spectrum a stone matches up vibrationally, we simply match up their current color with their corresponding chakra color (not what color they used to be). What color is that stone now? It’s no longer of the old color frequency.  It’s current color frequency is going to vibrate & match with its current color. Making sure you use crystals or stones whose current color matches with the chakra colors allows harmonizing photons of light to harmonize & amplify; generating color healing.

    See, what you’re doing is introducing light of specific frequencies–colors–into someone’s electromagnetic field, also known as their aura. This entrains a person’s emotional & biochemical states & encourages balance & good health.

    Using color as a way of healing has actually been practiced for a very long time–many ancient cultures utilized this form of therapy & only now has modern science & alternative healing begun to catch up.

    So let’s say you’re interested in opening your throat chakra to help to facilitate communication. Know that each chakra has a corresponding color associated with it. The colors are really easy to memorize…they follow the order of the colors of the rainbow or you can just refer to that chart above. Blue is the throat chakra color. So you would work with a blue stone: blue lace agate, turquoise, celestite or, yes…even tanzanite.
    There are many ways you can work with a crystal. Just to name a few…

  • You can simply relax with it laying over your throat for 15 minutes
  • You can make a gem elixir with a non-toxic blue stone & drink it
  • You can carry it with you throughout the day
  • Place some stones in places you’ll be spending time in; your work space or bedside table
  • You can also go beyond crystals &  pump the blue into your surrounding environment (think light & fabrics).

    I was doing some root chakra healing on this day! Hence all the earthy-red.

    By doing this, you’re infusing a specific color into your entire electromagnetic field (aura) & not just focusing on 1 chakra. Blue light & blue fabric will help you change up your emotional & biochemical states in a powerful way. Try it! You’ll see what I mean.

    I love knowing what an important role color (light energy) plays in our lives!

    Not only does it infuse us with vibrancy & beauty, it’s also a very important part of healing & can be used hand-in-hand with crystals to help us achieve our best potential–physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually as humans.

    You know, as humans we need tools to deal with all the stress that comes along with being human, right? 😉  I hope you’ll add color therapy + crystals to your fabulous, sparkly tool belt! I know it’ll help.

    Lastly, please post your color therapy comments, experience & questions below. See you there!

    Colorful Crystal Blessings!

     

     

    Celebrities And Crystal Healing Secrets Revealed!

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing 6 Comments

    Oprah even included  this article about Crystal Healing in the Jan. 2014 issue of Oprah!!

    Not to be like the National Enquirer or anything, but ever since I did a popular blog post a while back on Robert Downey Jr.’s love of crystal healing, I’ve been keeping my eyes & ears open to any rumors of other celebrity crystal healing stories…well-known celebrities who are into it too.

    Before we get to the celebs, I recently stumbled across this journalist’s article bashing the use of crystal healing among the celeb-folk. He seems to think that turning to crystals is total bunk AND a complete dismissal of God or belief in any religion. I completely disagree, but I’ll save that argument for when I meet up with this dude. Just wanted to interject a differing point of view for a little healthy debate!

    All right, let’s get to it. Here are a few that I’ve been able to sleuth out…(with some hidden celeb gems in the links).
    1. Kate Hudson
    photo credit: Arniep

    “I have a crystal my mom gave me for Christmas years ago and I take it everywhere with me. She’s really into energy and stones. It’s Rose Quartz, and heart-shaped and it represents love.” – according to ZenJewels.com…which of course set me off hunting for mommie, Goldie Hawn. YUP!!! Jackpot! (go ahead & click…you’re gonna die!!)
    2. Victoria and David Beckham
    Photo credit: Vtornet

    Both have an interest in crystal healing. “We’ve both been into crystals since moving to LA,” said David. Victoria elaborated, ‘‘We both like crystals, as in crystal energy. I have lots of Pink Quartz and Black Tourmaline in my bathroom. It’s quite spiritual out here in Los Angeles, all very positive.” as quoted in ok.co.uk
    3. Anne Hathaway

    People.com reported that Ms. Hathaway shopped & purchased 2 special crystal pieces with a friend at the Crystalarium in West Hollywood on Melrose. Apparently, it’s quite the celeb hot spot.
    4. Heidi Klum

    Friend of the Beckhams, Ms. Klum reportedly gave David Beckham a special gem bracelet to help him heal up some injuries. – according to HelloMagazine.com. You can  see a pic here of the bracelets he’s wearing.
    5. Oprah Winfrey

    Ms. Winfrey has confessed that her greatest indulgence is a crystal bath in this article, “Bathing is my hobby. I love creating bathing experiences—bath gels, bubbles, crystals, salts, lavender milks…”

    Oprah even included this article about Crystal Healing in the Jan. 2014 issue of Oprah!!
    6. Angelina Jolie

    Photo credit: www.promiflash.de – Bitte bei Bildverwendung auch Link setzen

    According to a friend’s report in EntertainmentWise.com, ““She believes they hold sacred, ancient energy and wants that around her. She’s spent hundreds and thousands of pounds on them”, but supposedly, partner, Brad Pitt isn’t too keen on it. He should book himself a session with one of our Certified Crystal Healers. That will change his tune! 😉
    7. Shirley MacLaine

    Photo credit: Roland Godefroy

    This sweet lady is my personal mentor. She’s the person who hooked me deeply into metaphysics at the tender age of 16 with her book Out on a Limb. She’s been into crystals for a long time…this ain’t no secret. She details her journey with crystals in her book, Going Within.
    8. Princess Diana

    The Princess “swore by the healing power of crystals.” – according to The Free Library. In fact, I recently watched the movie, Diana, & there was a scene in which she was trying to calm down & relax and she had her crystals & candles on a side table. Yeah, I got a little excited.
    9. Sheryl Crow

    Photo credit: The Heart Truth

    She apparently chose to wear some citrine & aquamarine gem necklaces.  And CrystalAge.com says that Ms. Crow is a “self-confessed citrine enthusiast.”

    10. Lady Gaga
    Just watch… (warning: there’s some nudity)

    11. Katy Perry
    Katy Perry was reported by Handbag.com as saying:

    “I have rose quartz a crystal in my purse at all times, to make sure I attract the right kind of love.”

    Apparently, Katy talked about it in her Cosmopolitan cover interview;  she says Madonna turned her on to crystal therapy & even gave her the phone number for her personal crystal healer! Could it be one of our own recommended Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers??

    photo credit: mattbuck
    12. Buzz Aldrin

    Bigger than any celebrity to me, astronaut Buzz Aldrin wears several skull bracelets for protection: clear quartz (to which he’s added red & blue stones to the eyes to show his patriotism), turquoise & the 3rd one of a matte black stone (not sure what it is). He’s always photographed wearing them & on a talk show he stated they were for good luck & to ward off evil spirits.  You can see all his bracelets here.
    13. Joan Jett
    I was so excited to find out recently that one of my fav rockers, Joan Jett, has been into crystals for a long time! She was quoted as saying this in an online interview (and I really resonate with the part about working in conjunction with spirituality!!):
    “Crystals are a gemstone, like a ruby or diamond, so to speak. But there are people, including me, that believe these stones can retain positive or negative thoughts. And there are many different kinds of these stones besides Quartz crystal. Amethyst, Obsidian, Tigers Eye, and Agate. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. But these stones work only in conjunction with spirituality. Not just Church on Sunday and Temple on Saturday, but from within. I suggest you get a book on the subject, because there’s a lot of them out there” quoted from interview on JoanJettBadRep.com

    14. Meranda Kerr
    I absolutely LOVE this! Meranda Kerr has created an organic skin care line infused with the vibrations of rose quartz.♥ She talks a bit about it here…

    So do you know of any others I could add to this list? Please post any juicy tidbits in the comments below! Let’s dish!!

    OK, so want to impress your crystal-lovin’ friends? Talk science to them. Works every time.

    And Lemurian crystals are quite intriguing to many crystal lovers. So put those 2 together & you’ve got a winning match. 😉

    Don’t know what a Lemurian crystal is? Although we do go in-depth on Lemurians in our Advanced Crystal Master Course, briefly…a Lemurian is a crystal that comes from a particular region in Brazil & has these deep horizontal striations on its shaft that are known to carry recorded information from lost civilizations. Pretty cool, right?

    In today’s featured video, Rev. B asks:

    What’s the deal with all the different colored Lemurians?

    Great question b/c we are beginning to see them popping up in almost a full spectrum of colors!!

    Click play below to learn more about 4 different colors of lemurians:

    It’s all about the chemistry & geology…

  • Reddish, pink-ish, mauve colored: iron containing…very grounding, loving energy, connects us more to Mother Earth, great for root chakra as well as heart chakra work
  • Pink colored: lithium containing….calming, emotionally balancing
  • Clear: no additional elements…clarity, amplifying
  • Smokey, brown: naturally radiated…de-toxing, cleansing, protective
  • As always, I’d love to hear from you, Crystal Hottie!

    (I have an older video I did here on what exactly a lemurian is, a lemurian seed & a pink lemurian).

    What other lemurian colors have you come across? What sort of energy do you sense from them? Please share in the comments below.

    The Magic Pill…or Crystal?

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing 25 Comments

    magic pill

    One question I often get is:

    “How can I use crystals to help heal this, that, or the other ailment?”

    At first…I used just give the one-off crystal recommendation.

    And then I realized…well, no, I knew…I knew all along that I wasn’t giving the entire picture. That I wasn’t giving the whole story & it was really doing people a huge disservice. My crystal recommendations were usually given in a short YouTube comment or Facebook post & that’s all that a post really allowed for most of the time; and people on smartphones or whatever don’t really want to read anything longer than that anyway so I just recommended this or that stone. Plus, people came right out & said it; they really just wanted a 1 crystal answer. Yeah. If I got too complicated in my suggestions, they often told me this!

    Everybody’s looking for the magic pill…or the magic crystal in this instance!

    Well, Chick Pea: I no longer do that.

    For a while now,  I’ve prefaced my “crystal-cure” answers by stating that crystal healing is part of a sound holistic healing program. In other words, the crystals are not to be relied on all on their own for any sort of cure.

    “Holistic” means that it takes into account all the different aspects that come into play with healing; physically as well as emotionally…and I’m talking about everything. This includes not just your body, but mind & spirit as well.

    Crystals are great b/c they allow us to tap into similar vibrational frequencies (or healing frequencies) more efficiently. Not to say that it can’t be done without the crystals. Of course, it can. You can do everything & anything! It’s all possible. 

    But crystals, as I always say, are here to assist us as a healing tool & support; allowing us to do the required work using less energy.

    That’s the physics definition of a tool, you know!

    Yep. You I used to teach this in my physics lessons all the time…definition of a tool: anything that allows you to do work using less energy.

    Who wouldn’t want that? Of course, we’re always looking for the easy way out, right? A crystal can be that healing tool & support. Having said that though…I don’t think I’ve ever used them 100% all by themselves for healing a physical ailment. I’ve always used them as an accompaniment with other healing modalities.

    For instance, if I feel like I might be getting a cold, I won’t just use a crystal to deflect that cold. I’m going to pool together all my known resources into my arsenal. Yeah, everything!

    • I’m going to use a crystal healing meditation.
    • I’m going to use gem elixirs.
    • I’m going to have a crystal healing session & have all my chakras cleansed & balanced.
    • I’m going to use herbs.
    • I’m going to rest.
    • I’m going to take the right vitamins & supplements that I know that can boost my immune system.
    • I’m going to reduce my stress levels.
    • I’m going to be extra careful to eat properly.

    I’m going to do all those things that I know will help me to heal.

    When people say that they don’t believe crystals can heal– first of all, your mindset is a big part of that sound holistic healing practice. Reducing your stress levels is also another big part of that sound holistic healing practice. Both of those things play a huge role in healing, by bathing each of your individual cells & energetic vibrational frequencies in the correct healing environment. And, yes, that has been scientifically proven for those of you that want scientific proof…check out Dr. Bruce Lipton’s work with epigenetics:

    Through my research & work, I’ve discovered that crystals assist to further enhance & provide that “correct healing environment” required for healing.

    So, yes, as part of a sound holistic healing practice, crystals can be a huge help!

    “In a world of specialization, we have been trained to think of medicine as a separate world—when we are sick, we go to doctors and follow their advice. This is starting to change, with the increasing popularity of alternative and holistic approaches to overall health and well-being.” —Gareth Cook, Boston Globe, 9 June 2002

    Not to say that using a crystal all by itself without these other surrounding healing modalities cannot work. It certainly can; and has many, many times. But I’m always playing the role of Ms. Practical. I tend towards doing things the most efficient way I know of; and for me, I found it to be most efficient to pull in all the things that I know are in alignment with the same goal in mind.

    Why wouldn’t I pull in everything that I know if it’s relatively easy to do? If I know that 1 thing, or 1 modality, isn’t going to cancel out or harm the efficacy of another modality…if I know that they’re all going to work in concert together to achieve the same result, then let’s go for it! Right? Balls to the wall, Lima Bean.

    Yes, taking or doing all these things individually may work wonders; but when you pull them all together, you create a 3rd resonant frequency. And this is, again…the physics teacher in me peeking through again…that 3rd Resonant Frequency (known as the Principle of Interference; google that if you feel like geeking out!) is greater than the sum of its parts & thus, produces a more profound healing effect! OH YES! Now we’re cooking with Hydrogen gas, Baby!

    Isn’t that the epitome of efficiency?  Because it’s going to be so much more powerful & quicker in healing whatever it is you’re trying to heal or adjust.

    And if you use all this alternative medicine in conjunction with Western medicine…well, look the frik out! Yes, I do feel that Western medicine can be a very important part of healing depending on the specific situation. It can provide all sorts of answers & solutions that we’re not able to do as easily (or at all) with alternative or Eastern medicine healing practices. I feel all the healing practices (modern, ancient & in between) are here to be used together & to compliment each other whenever appropriate.

    I also know that adding crystal healing to the mix simply can’t hurt. Crystals – remember – are made by Mother Earth & God or Source Energy (please don’t leave me comments on the semantics of that).

    Crystals are here to assist us; to be used as healing tools & supports.

    Cheers & Good Sparkly Health~!

     

    Balancing Chakras using Crystals, Part 3

    Hibiscus Moon chakras, Crystal Healing 11 Comments

    Ready for Part 3 of this Chakra Crystal Healing Blog Series?

    In case you missed…Part 1 is here & Part 2 is here.

    After discussing those 2 parts the next question I get is:

    How do we go about balancing our chakras using crystals?

    Let me start by saying that the methods I discuss here are certainly not the ONLY methods or the “right” way.  Ancient Japanese saying ~ “There are many paths up the Mountain, but the view of the Moon from the top is the same.” :)

    Also, please know that you do not need to have someone else do chakra balancing for you…you can do your own chakra crystal healing sesh, no problemo. In fact, I do this all the time for myself. But, but , but!!…I do love getting crystal healing sessions done by a professional Crystal Healer & I HIGHLY recommend it. That’s the ultimate! If you’ve never had a professional crystal healing session…see if there’s someone in your area & gift yourself with a booking. You won’t regret it!

    OK, so let’s get on with it. Please note that what I’m presenting here is a very basic step-by-step method. I have not included all the correspondences for the chakras, the why’s & hows, foundational info & special nuances  that I teach in our Certified Crystal Healer Course. But this is a great place to start:

  • Create some ambiance or sacred space for yourself were you won’t be disturbed for at least 20 min. Have some relaxing or new age music on, light some safe candles, burn a little bit of incense or diffuse some essential oils, have a comfy spot to lie down
  • Lay your chakra stones out by your side: 1 for each of the 7 main chakras in their color coordinated order as discussed in part 1. An inexpensive tumbled set like these work great (& you can use the code HM10 to save 10%) . Also include a grounding stone: my favorite is a nice shiny black tourmaline chunk. You can also use smokey quartz. Some people like to use hematite. Others prefer loadstone; your preference. Oh yeah! Have a glass of water nearby for later as well.
  • Lie down  & place your grounding stone between your feet, just six inches below your feet; this is considered our Earth Star Chakra (technically not 1 of the main chakras but known as a “transpersonal chakra“). This is going to be the 1st crystal you place  & the last crystal you’re going to take off
  • Then continue placing the rest of your stones, placing the corresponding stone directly over each of your 7 chakras.  You can use a chart like the 1 on the right to determine approx. where each chakra is located. OR this is 1 that I recommend to my students
  • Chakra balancing can be as short as 15 minutes or you can go half an hour or more…whatever feels comfortable. Your goal here is to get active with it. Beginning with the root chakra & moving up, visualize each chakra, 1 at a time; each colored chakra spinning, a nice healthy balanced spin, not wobbly…all while focusing on what the chakra represents & corresponds to. You don’t want to see dark patches or heavy black shadows or a chord coming from the chakra. That means there might be some attachments there, debris…stank junk needing to be cleared out. That’s a sign that chakra needs more focused attention & remedies. Your mental focus at this time should be on the positive attributes of that chakra. Focus on dissolving any physical problems or any emotional blockages, seeing them visually dissolving away. If you’re not very visual, then feel the problems & blockages dissolving. Sense what it would feel like to be free of those attachments! Imagine what it would be like to be so happy that all those issues are gone.
  • Once you’ve completed clearing all 7 main chakras you can begin to end the session with grounding. This is a very important step. PLEASE don’t skip it! The purpose of grounding is to make sure you feel stable & centered; well-grounded to Mother Earth. See, you might think that you feel OK, but when you sit or stand up you may feel a little woozy & light-headed. So, at the end of any chakra session, leave that earth star chakra stone (just below your feet) in place for no less than 5 minutes…or maybe even 10 minutes if you’re feeling really kind of floaty-flighty. Also do some relaxing grounding breaths with slow deep breathing. Now, go ahead & drink your glass of water while you’re still seated to further help ground yourself. If after 10 or 15 minutes you still feel out of sorts, pick up the grounding stone & carry it with you until you start to normalize & you eventually will.
  • This whole un-grounding thing might sound a little “out there” for you, but after doing a lot of crystal healings & my students telling me about their crystal healings, I’ve determined that this is a very common occurrence. The energy really gets moved around when we’re doing this sort of work; removing stagnant energy or blockages, energy is moving all over the place…it’s the sort of thing to be expected when we do this kind of work. But the more often you do it, the better balance you’ll be in & the less jarring it will feel each time. It’s all a part of recalibrating your energy body, getting back to balance…part of a sound energetic hygiene plan.

    Just like working out, right? ‘Cept I look forward to a chakra session much more than I do a work out. 😉

    I hope you enjoyed this Crystal Chakra Healing Blog Series. If you know someone who may be interested or may benefit from this info, share this post with them… I hope this will inspire more people to become aware of & care for their chakras.♥

    Crystal Chakra Healing, Part 1

    Hibiscus Moon chakras, Crystal Healing, healing 30 Comments

    healing5

    Another way you can work with your crystals…

    & this is a really easy way with lots of benefits

    is with crystal chakra healing.

    I have a whole lot of info on this so I’m going to break it up into a 3 part series. This 1st part is my fav. thing to do…break it down into the How & Why with some science thrown in for good measure. Ready? Let’s go!
    The science behind crystal chakra healing
    We’re going to talk about the 7 main chakras. We have many more than just the 7 main ones but these are the most familiar ones…the familiar main 7 chakras are the major portals or the major energy hubs on our body.

    Each chakra has a corresponding color associated with it. The colors are really easy to memorize…they follow the color of the rainbow, which always follow the same order:

    • Red
    • Orange
    • Yellow
    • Green
    • Blue
    • Indigo
    • Violet

    Remember from school? ROY G BIV?

    OK, I can’t resist…(please don’t yell at me if you end up with an ear-worm)

    That’s the same exact color sequence that the chakras follow. And it’s no coincidence that they’re exactly the same sequence. It’s just science, Jelly Bean. 😉

    Each chakra is also linked with a specific body part, specific body function & certain emotions, among other correspondences. One book I HIGHLY recommend you get to learn more about this is:

    In addition, each chakra has a specific vibrational frequency. See colors, or more specifically “light” in various frequencies that we can actually see with our eye balls is just a teenie tiny part of the electromagnetic spectrum (EM spectrum). The colors (light frequencies) arrange themselves in order of decreasing vibrational wavelengths. Of these specific light frequencies, red is the longer wavelength  (lower frequency) & violet is the shortest wavelength (higher frequency). I haven’t lost ya yet, right? Stick with me here. 😉

    Actually…everything on the EM spectrum is a type of light. Just a little smidge of the spectrum is the visible light that we can see with our eyes.  The chakras encompass all these colors that we can see. Each one has a very specific vibrational frequency.

    In summary, each chakra has a specific vibrational frequency & a color that it expresses itself as.

    These specific frequencies are aligned to certain known energies. This allows us to focus on one aspect at a time. For instance, if we want to zero in on anxiety & fear, we can focus our attention on the root chakra & improve it efficiently by just focusing in on that 1 particular chakra.

    I’ve found chakra work to be very efficient & highly effective for clearing out all sorts so energetic imbalances. I’ve it heard over, over again…people saying things like,

    “I’ve been going to therapy for a long time; going to see a therapist, a psychiatrist, etc. to work on my fear & anxiety issues.”

    Not to belittle that at all. But if someone has been working on a specific issue for a long time…once that person addresses the associated chakra & works on clearing & balancing that chakra…most of the time the issue clears itself up much quicker by using chakra work alone or in conjunction with the therapy. Not to say this will work for everyone every time, but it’s certainly worth giving a try.

    More Physics & Chakras?
    As a former physics teacher, I can’t help but throw in more physics here. In my courses I teach the principle of entrainment when working with the chakras. This is a physics principle that basically says that energy of a higher amplitude will dominate & influence a similar frequency of a lower amplitude.

    This is often demonstrated using tuning forks. When the tuning forks are tuned to the same frequency, if I rang 1 with a lot of energy (high amplitude) & then rang the other just gently (with a little bit of amplitude), the higher amplitude will dominate & influence the fork of the lower amplitude & it will get louder & raise its energy up (become higher amplitude) b/c the higher amplitude will dominate the lower amplitude.

    Why do I bring this shiz up?

    B/c we also will entrain with the higher amplitude energy.

    If there is a similar frequency that comes into our environment & it happens to be of higher amplitude, it’s going to raise us up to match its frequency…to become a vibrational match.

    Now…this is a big foundational brick of my teachings…a crystal is always going to be higher amplitude frequency b/c it has a more stable frequency in its inherent molecular structure. SAY WHAT?

    So again…the reason for that stable frequency is it has a very precise atomic structure.

    Sodium chloride molecule (salt crystal)…look at that precise crystal structure!

    That’s what makes a crystal a crystal. A crystal has a precise geometric pattern in its molecular blueprint. Although we are human & we’re made of some crystals, we are not entirely crystalline. So, we are not as geometrically perfect as a crystal. Not even close.

    Crystals are going to be in a higher amplitude energy field than us due to their geometric perfection. We’re going to entrain with the amplitude of their higher energy when similar frequencies are present.
    OK, Geek! Get back to the chakras!
    So, if you have a chakra that’s out of balance. For example, let’s say my third eye is completely whacked out. Not really…but just say…

    I can take a nice amethyst natural point & I place that on my third eye.

    The amethyst is of a similar vibrational frequency to my third eye but it’s higher amplitude energy, higher frequency, more stable because of it’s crystalline structure. Ya with me?

    It’s going to vibrationally stabilize my third eye chakra. My third eye is going to entrain with that similar frequency. It’s going to move into resonance with the similar yet more precise & higher amplitude vibration of the amethyst.

    Crystals have higher amplitude due to that geometric perfection…due to that, they are going to clear out & balance our chakras, making them more stable, entertaining them with their higher amplitude energy. Thereby, changing the emotional & biochemical state of that chakra to the correct frequencies & also helping to maintain their stability.

    Each chakra will entrain with that specific vibrational frequency of its color. For instance, the third eye chakra’s color is indigo,so it entrains with indigo.

    This is certainly not the only chakra balancing method but it’s a very easy one; simply choose a crystal within the same color family as the chakra you’d like to balance. So for the third eye, indigo stones like lapis lazuli, iolite or amethyst are great to work with.

    lapis lazuli from Pakistan

    Or for the heart chakra, green aventurine, jade or green tourmaline would be perfect.

    Luscious green aventurine tumblies.

    Matching up the color is a pretty foolproof & simple way to go.

    Now some people say,

    “You shouldn’t match the color of the chakra to the stone because whatever color you’re seeing is actually the color that’s being reflected & not absorbed by the stone. That’s not actually the color of the stone.”

    Then I’m like,

    “Yup. And that’s EXACTLY what I’m looking for, because if that’s the light frequency that’s being reflected & bounced off, then that’s the color that’s bathing the environment of the chakra.”

    That’s exactly what we want. Is it not?? I think it’s a great way to do it. Not to mention that I have confirmation from case study after case study as do my students. Color works, Baby!

    OK, so that’s part 1. Hope I didn’t burn you out on the science. Part 2 is about how to determine which chakras need balancing & Part 3 is about what to do with the crystals.

    How Do We Know What Energy Crystals Have? & Pendulums

    Hibiscus Moon book, Crystals, divination, energy work

    Have you ever wondered…

    • How Do We Know What Energy Crystals Have? Where did we get this information from?
    • What Causes a Pendulum to Spin when we ask it a “Yes” or “No” Question?

    If so, this exactly what we’re talking about today in my video!
    How Do We Know What Energy Crystals Have? Where did we get this information from?
    I discuss specifically where most of the popular crystal info comes from & what it’s based on. I’ll also reveal how to find out how each crystal will work best with you individually. Here’s a tip:

    Tweet it out: When working with a new crystal, it’s best if you can remove all previous bias. @HibiscusMoon1

    What Causes a Pendulum to Spin when we ask it a “Yes” or “No” Question?
    Does it tap into Source Energy? Are you actually moving it? Yep, we’ll discuss that!

    I also go over a very  important point about working with a pendulum to get your most accurate results.

    *Would you like to leave your own crystal question for me? Just click here.*

    So, have you faced these same questions? If so, what answers did you come up with? Do you have the same or a different point of view? Some juicy tidbit that I’ve left out?  If so, I’m really excited to hear your perspective on this.

    Leave a comment below & let me & the rest of our Crystal Hottie Community know your personal experience. Many times, some sparkly nugget of wisdom you share could make a profound revelation to someone else in our community, no matter how obvious or insignificant you think it may be. :)

    Thanks Bunches, as always, for reading, watching & joining in.

    Now go have a SPARKLY day, Sweet Pea!

    Is this course for everyone?

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing Leave a Comment

    I want to make sure that we attract the right kind of student here at the HMCA. I love you all but we’re not all cut out to do the same things, you know?

    • First & foremost, I totally get that not everyone is cut out to do this light healer or crystal healer type of work. Sometimes there are other things that need to get worked on first. No judgements there at all.
    • That being said, I know that many get intimidated thinking “Who am I to be healing anyone?” Here at the HMCA, we realize & teach that we can all heal each other & that healing is a 2-way street…both the facilitator & the “heal-ee” exchange & receive. If we waited for all the healers to be PERFECT before they did any “healing” for anyone else….we’d all be waiting a LONG TIME!
    • Next, if you’re looking for a course that simply spews out crystal properties for you to memorize then this is not the course for you. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that but there are other courses out there for you if that’s more of what you resonate with. Our method teaches you to really get to know your crystals & we take a more personal approach to that.

    OK, now that we’ve covered who it’s for and who it’s not for just wanted to also let you know that this is your last chance to enroll for the Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Course! We’re closing the doors soon:

    Do you have a calling to work with the crystals? A calling that could totally change your life’s path? This course will allow you to create a life in total alignment with your biggest dreams + desires. Yes…it can totally do that.

    Is Your Citrine Real or Fake & Does it Matter? Fakes Series: Part 4

    Hibiscus Moon amethyst, citrine, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work, science 29 Comments

    Crystals are remarkable & glorious gifts from Mother Earth. Aren’t they? And we all love citrine. But do you know if your citrine is real or fake…and should you care?

    Some crystal peeps prefer their crystals to be all natural; as they were found in Mother Nature, in the raw.

    Others may be drawn to the beauty of crystals that have been enhanced in some way but they may be totally unaware that they have been artificially altered. Maybe the crystals have been molecularly bonded, irradiated, tumbled, cut, polished or even heat treated in a lab. Now, I’m saying “lab” in this post for ease & flow but often times the heating we’re talking about here isn’t done in a lab at all. It’s usually done in a dusty warehouse by the miners themselves; no lab coats or anything. Just keepin’ it real for ya. 😉

    Lab-heated citrine seems to be a soar spot with many. So much so that over the years as I received many questions about it I’ve created a few videos to talk about the topic & show some examples. (See below for vids).

    Sometimes when people find out that much of the citrine on the market isn’t an Mama Earth Creation, they may go into  a mini-panic, thinking that they’ve been duped or that their heat-treated citrine is totally  useless. Not so…IMHO. But more about that in a bit.
    How to tell the difference
    It’s not always an easy task but let me give you a few pointers. If its heat-treated citrine, the color will be most  concentrated at the tips but white at the bottom (see photos below).  Also heat-treated citrine will be sort of crumbly & break apart easily since heating the stones at the temps necessary does seem to weaken the stability of the crystals.
    Natural Citrine
    Natural citrine points from the Congo. Notice their generally uniform smokey, champagne or honey color to them. Congo natural citrine usually comes in these nice elongated points & often have babies & hematite around its base where it was attached to the rock matrix.

    This is a natural citrine with a classic point shape and light tea color throughout the crystal.

    This piece is an amazing feat of geology! Here you see a double terminated penetrator twin that got fractured during its growth process & self healed while turning into a natural golden citrine only above the fracture! AMAZING & have never seen anything like it!
    Heat-Treated Citrine
    Heat-treated citrine from Brazil is usually amethyst (sometimes smokey quartz) that’s been baked. This piece was broken off of a large amethyst geode then heated to get this tell-tale baked orange color at the tip with white bottom.

    This photo demos another common baked citrine formation, the druse. This darker deep honey-colored ice tea hue is known as Madeira citrine. Then you can see a sharp border which then goes white.
    How do They Do It?
    Mother Earth naturally creates citrine with her geo-thermal heat source; from within the mantle (her deluxe gourmet geo-kitchen!) by heating amethyst or smoky quartz (both are SiO2 (quartz), just as citrine is).

    The Earth can also produce the deep brown citrine, aka Madeira citrine. This is more rare than your usual lighter honey or white wine colored natural citrine. Actually, all types of natural citrine are considered relatively rare. They’re no where near as bountiful as amethyst so they can get be hard to find & a bit pricey. Be prepared.

    When we lab-heat citrine we’re simply mimicking what Mama Earth does. You usually begin with a poorly or lightly colored Brazilian amethyst. Then you heat it in a kiln to over 900°F (482°C). If you want it to go dark yellow or to red-brown (Madeira color) then you go up to 1022-1040°F (550-560°C). Some smoky quartz can turn citrine color as cool as 390°F (199°C).
    Interactive!!
    Ain’t this the interactive classroom?? My favorite kind. Crystal Hottie Shayla read this blog post w/i hours of it posting & got to experimenting in her lab kitchen & showed us how it’s done. Thank you Prof. Shayla for sharing this with us & your quick work! *bowing down* Check out her results:

    Is it Still Citrine?
    Yep, yep, yep & I feel that heated/baked crystals & stones can be worked with very effectively. Heating the stone at these temperatures simply changes the color but doesn’t change its molecular structure & again, IMHO, as long as a crystal’s molecular structure hasn’t been altered, I feel that the crystal will still have the effective healing qualities.In addition, the stone’s color (light vibrational frequency) has now been changes to that of natural citrine’s. Its no longer of the violet frequency, its now in the orange or yellow frequency. So its going to resonate that energy now.

    Is Your Citrine Fake or Natural? Part 1

    That being said, I do think that heat treating or enhancing a crystal can reduce this frequency & effectiveness since it does weaken the stone some, but it doesn’t totally burn out its potential healing effects. So, no need to replace your citrine at all.

    Citrine – Fake or Natural, Part 2

    Whether citrine is heated artificially or naturally, it’s still often commercially classified as citrine. Remember, this artificial or natural heating is not enough to change the molecular structure of the crystal so it’s still SiO2. I feel the healing properties are still those of citrine, but on a lighter scale.

    To me, lab heated citrine’s properties are not similar to amethyst’s or smoky quartz’ at all. Through much experimenting of my own as well as that of my student’s & clients, baked citrine’s properties align perfectly to my solar plexus chakra; its energetically stimulating, it helps with financial issues & it helps us to be more confident. Now, if you’re looking for a piece that’s just going to go BAMMM!  in these precise areas, then I’d advise you to go with a natural citrine, for sure….its energies will be much more powerful.

    Types of Citrine for Crystal Healing

    Let me end by saying that I feel that your intuition should always be your first guide. If a stone or crystal works for you for a particular purpose then don’t let anyone or anything that you read or hear change that for you. For certain people, certain stones may work very well while not work for others no matter what is said or written about them. Keep on truckin’, Crystal Hottie!

    Just as in quantum physics, the scientist doing the observing actually influences the outcome & properties of the subatomic particles being observed. So, basically, if you believe it to be so, it simply is, on a subatomic level. Why should it be any different on a super atomic level? As below, so it is above, right? Let the crystals that you know work for you continue to do so…if you believe it to be true, it simply is. No panicking over heat-treated citrine, OK? If it worked for you before, it’s still going to continue to do so…unless you think it won’t.

    Continue to enjoy your crystals and stones, heat-treated or not.

    When are you ready to heal others?

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, energy work 26 Comments

    May I address something? This “something” has been poking at me for a little while so I just need to get it out.

    Something that I’ve been hearing come up more frequently with my students?

    Its this whole thing about some people feeling like this:

    “OK, I’ve taken a class, completed a certification, received a certificate…I may even have several different types of healing modality certifications under my sparkly belt…but I’m still not ready nor prepared to heal others. Who am I to heal others?

    and–by the way, I don’t feel certification is necessary at all, yeah even though I am the founder of an Academy that certifies peeps! I go over my views on that in this interview I gave a while back w/ a few other cool chicas.

    Some people are born healers and may know it & they’ve got the confidence that goes along with it and…more power to you. I love that.

    Some people feel like they can they can teach themselves & learn it all on their own & they become extraordinary healers!

    What I’m saying is, I don’t feel certification is a necessity, nor that it’s for everyone-we’ve talked a little bit about that before.

    So why bother with certifications & academies & the whole she-bang? That’s b/c a lot of us- and this is just human nature, Lima Bean- a lot of us like to have a foundation, a lot of us like to have steps to follow. We like some kind of–not that I deliver formulas at all, but some kind of a format.

    And hey, I love it too! That’s why I love to teach & I love to build curricula & I just freakin’ love this sort of thing. I’ve been a teacher my whole life.

    So this whole thing about:

    ‘Okay, I’ve got all these certifications, I still don’t feel like I’m ready to be a healer. I still don’t feel like I’ve mastered it. I still don’t feel like I’m ready. I still feel like there’s so much more to learn before I should be out there healing other people. I still feel like I have so much to heal within myself before I can go out there and heal others.’

    That is just plain bullshiz! Yeah, I am calling bullshiz on that. Get over it. Get over it.

    That’s what I say to that because, hey, guess what?

    None of us are perfect.

    Even the highest ascended masters & Source Energy itself have some imperfections, and if we’re going to wait around for all of us to become ascended masters, to get people out there healing & helping other people, then…Frick!…none of us are going to benefit from any of it.

    And by the way, I don’t think being a healer-my students know this; they know this well– being a healer is not a one way street.

    It’s most certainly a two way street.

    So, when we call ourselves ‘healer’, it’s really a misnomer. We just use that to give a label because, as humans, we also like to have labels so we can compartmentalize things & know what everyone is talking about. So that’s a good idea. But you are a healer as well as the ‘healee’-yeah, that’s a weird word-but when we are healing others we are also receiving healing in return.

    It’s a 2 way conduit to source energy. We’re giving & we are receiving; and sure as heck we need it. We need that healing just as much as everybody else does. I know I do!
    So please, please get over this notion, Sweet Pea. Do not wait until you feel that you are perfectly ready–

    • all your chakras are balanced
    • you are perfectly healed
    • you do everything wonderfully well
    • you don’t do anything wrong
    • you’re in heart center 100% of the time
    • and– oh, forget it!!

    It’s unattainable.

    So please, get out there, share your gifts, and heal other people…and be healed. :)

     

    Crystal blessings!

    My Wand ~ a Guest Blog Post by Tia Johnson

    Hibiscus Moon amethyst, Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work, interview 5 Comments

    Today, I proudly bring to you another in our series of Crystal Healer Interviews from 1 very dedicated & prolific Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer, Tia Johnson…on top of everything else she does (read her bio below) she has her own freakin’ Radio Show! Yeah! OK, here she is with glorious beautiful self… ENJOY!

    It’s not so much that we pick our crystals, but it is the crystals that pick us!

    Just as in the movie Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the wand chose Harry!

    While in Ollivander’s Wand Shop, Harry Potter gave a few wands a flick of the wrist, but there was that one particular wand that was a ‘match’ for Harry.

    Well, this is how crystals work with us!

    Have you ever been attracted to a particular crystal and can’t explain why besides the fact that you find it to be beautiful?  I can guarantee you that it is more than just the looks of a crystal that draws you in and captures your attention! This is what happened to me when I purchased my first crystal wand!

    My crystal wand, pictured below, consists of my two favorite crystals, clear quartz and amethyst!

    However, I have to mention that this was NOT my ideal wand. Before I became a Certified Crystal Healer, I didn’t completely understand how crystals work. What I did know, at the time, was that I wanted an awesome and mysterious looking wand to use for crystal healing.

    Per my awesome formal crystal training I now know that:

    •  Crystals are vibratory tools that vibrate at different rates
    •  Crystals align our chakras, change frequencies, and promote emotional and physical healing
    •  Wands are great to use to direct energy
    •  Clear quartz crystals are amplifiers

     

    Little did I realize at first glance of the wand that I was already being healed!

    There were two other crystal wands on display in the glass case, but my crystal wand was already sending out ‘the vibes’ that I could instantly feel.

    I just could not stop looking at this wand, as if I was hypnotized and I could hear it say, “Purchase me.”

    Since I was looking to increase my healing abilities and gaining more wisdom about all things spiritual, I actually purchased it because it felt right and my two favorite crystals made up the wand!

     

     
    Here’s what I have learned:

    •  There’s always a master plan
    •  We may not always see that master plan, but if we just follow our intuition we will not have regrets
    •  The crystal wand attracted my attention because the crystals were vibrating at a frequency that I wanted to achieve: increase healing abilities-clear quartz amplifies and gain spiritual knowledge-amethyst promotes understanding of sacred knowledge
    •  Working with the wand has proven to be very beneficial for me and my crystal practice
    •  The crystal wand definitely chose me!

    Based on my experience, I can say that working with crystals is a calling. The crystal path chose me! I didn’t fully understand why I had to purchase the wand, but there was plan in motion.
    So, ask yourself some of the following questions:

    •  What path am I on now?
    •  What’s the background story of that path which has lead me to this point in my life?
    •  Who can learn from my experience?
    •  Is it a path that involves me getting training?
    •  How have I changed from when I first started the path?
    •  What’s the overall message?

    BIO: Tia Johnson is the intuitive healer and creator of The Violet Sanctuary Spa, LLC.  Tia is an attuned Reiki practitioner, Gateway Dreaming™ Coach, certified by Denise Linn, Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer and ANGEL THERAPY PRACTITIONER®, certified by Doreen Virtue, PhD. She is the author of the forthcoming e-book, To Be Goddess: Every Woman is a Goddess; Discover Your Domain In Which You Reign Supreme. She has been gifted with the metaphysical since early childhood and fascinated by dreams and their meaning. You can learn more about Tia at www.violetsanctuaryspa.com

    Thank you Tia! Wasn’t that inspiring? I’m certainly all amped up now. *Where’s my wand?*

    Abundant Crystal Blessings!

    8 Crystal Tools I Couldn’t Live Without

    Hibiscus Moon amethyst, chakras, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work, healing, love, stress relief 16 Comments

    In our crystal practice, we may have collected many various crystal tools for this, that or the other. Next thing you know you have a ton…but I find that there are a select few that I end up using most often. I call them my Go-To Crystal Buds. I’ve mediated with them, have a closer bond with them & seem to pull them out for working with most often. they’re like my Inner Circle Crystals. 😉

    So, how about  a behind-the-scenes look at the crystal tools that I use most often?
    My 8 Top Crystal Buddies
    1. Big Baby – if you’re familiar with my blog, you’re well familiar with Big Baby. This is my large natural clear crystal point that I often use as the center crystal for many of my powerful crystal grids. He’s perfect for focusing & then amplifying my intentions.

    Big Baby

    2. Big Mama– Again, if you’re a regular, you know Big Mama Rose Quartz Chunk-a-Lunka is a staple in my Love Grids. I usually use her in a grid where I send loving, compassionate healing energy out to many all at once. She’s my 18.3 pound-er from the South Dakota Badlands National Park & was gifted to me by a very special client. She’s glorious, isn’t she?

    Big Mama

    3. Amethyst pendulum – After messing around with an old washer & chain as a pendulum since the early nineties I finally felt I was due for an upgrade about 7 years ago & gifted myself with a very simple amethyst pendulum on a sterling silver chain that I keep in a purple little pouch. I’ve developed a good reliable relationship with it & its never steered me wrong.
    4. Selenite massage wand– selenite is a very useful tool for working with chakras & sealing up energy (which we teach all about in my course). This wand is polished & finished with a rainbow fluorite tip. Its even great for just rubbing on the temples & relieving headaches. Good medicine.

    My trusty amethyst pendulum & selenite wand hangin’ out.

    5. Sacred Healing Rattle – this guy is incredible for breaking up the energy in a space or area in the energetic body. I made with my own hands & energy of bamboo & buffalo hide. I’ve outfitted him with green aventurine & clear quartz to make this an even more effective healing rattle.

    My hand made sacred healing rattle

    6. Rose Quartz Buddy- This little baby’s been with me a long time…through thick & thin, ups & downs. And he’s always gotten me through. I usually keep him by my bedside as I often use him during before bed reflection time or even to fall asleep holding on to. I usually use it when in need of some heart medicine & consolation. A trusty little rock, this one.

    7. Auralite 23 Wand – This wand was a gift and I’ve had it about 2 years now. I often use it conjunction with my Rose Quartz Buddy or just on its own. Its home is also by my bedside as I often hold onto it while relaxing or getting ready to fall asleep. Its a good go-to piece when I need clarification on something or a creative spark. Sometimes I also use it to direct energy towards my head for headache relief.

    My auralite 23 wand & my rose quartz buddy.

    8. Bedroom Amethyst Druse – this plus-sized gorgeous gal is a deeply colored Uruguayan amethyst cut from a druse geode interior. She lives in our bedroom to bring a calm stress-free energy into the room while also radiating the correct vibrational frequency for dream time & serene sleep.

    My bedroom amethyst druse

    My BIG DREAM is to get everyone using crystals to help bring about positive change + to heal. We CAN do this!

    Super Sparkles to you today!!!

    P.S. Please share with us all below what crystals you can’t live without!!

    Escape from Stress by Using Crystals for Stress Relief

    Hibiscus Moon anxiety, Crystals, stress relief 5 Comments

    How To Use Crystals for Stress Relief
    We all experience stress from time to time. No one’s immune from it, especially not in our Western culture.

    Its when we let it spiral out of control that stress may become too much for our bodies to handle; bamboozling our health. Stress causes energetic imbalances. If those imbalances aren’t dealt with, released or redirected that energy becomes denser & begins to manifest as poor health, injuries, inflammation, etc….in essence it’s saying:

    “Oh! You’re not going to pay attention to this? Well, let’s just sideline your ass.  Now,  you have no choice but to deal with it. How do ya like them apples?”

    Why let it get to that point, Chick Pea? Especially when taking care not to get to stressed out is such an enjoyable pure-bliss-out experience in the 1st place?

    Having a tool box of  stress relieving tools that work for you is vital to restoring your inner peace & physical health. And crystals are the PERFECT additions to that tool box.

    So here’s a useful yet practical list of ways to use crystals to relieve stress. Plus the more you enjoy your stress relief tool, the more likely you are to stick with & keep reaping the benefits of it…b/c you’ll actually look forward to doing them.

    I personally have a weekly Monday evening ritual of stress relief INDULGENCE. I call Monday my Soul-Nourishment Day & do a combo of some of the things listed below. I always change it up too so I don’t ever get bored. Its totally BLISSFUL!

    If you choose to start doing this…and I sure hope that you do, don’t ever feel guilty that you’re taking time out for yourself! As I said before…if you don’t do this, the universe has a way of forcing you to sit your ass down & deal with in the most uncomfortable of ways.So just do it without guilt but with compete knowing that you are benefiting everyone by doing it. Everyone gets to continue to share in your lovely gifts when you are happy, serene, peaceful & HEALTHY.

    Crystal Stress Relievers

    • Crystal Bath Time– crystal baths are heavenly. I include crystals that I feel I’d like to make a deeper connection with or specific ones to work a certain chakra. I’ll also light some candles, add Epsom slats and/or essential oils. Crystals + water go hand in hand. You can watch my video here to understand why:
    • Crystal Meditation– meditation allows us to learn how a specific crystal works best for us while also reaping all the amazing health benefits of meditation. Scientists have found when we meditate we shift our brain activity to different areas; brain waves in the stress-prone area of the brain move on over to the serene-calm area leaving the test subjects more happy & calm than before they meditated. Pretty powerful stuffs this meditation!! So you get to know your crystal + you get the health benefits of meditation. 2 for the price of 1! A-N-D, meditating with a crystal makes meditation easier b/c you have a tangible object as a mental reminder to keep the focus. Once you work with & entrain with your crystal in meditation, you’ll witness their powerful magic & learn to work with your stones to manifest all sorts of dreams, intentions & needs…specific to you.
    • Crystal Healing Work- Whether you have it done for you by a professional or you do this for yourself, its just a good practice & I highly recommend everyone try it & then make it a regular practice if it resonates with you. What is crystal healing work? 

      Its a ždeeply relaxing, rejuvenating, clothing on, minimal contact therapy of placing crystals & stones on the body in relaxation.

      ž  It allows for re-alignment of energetic frequencies & removes emotional & energetic blocks while enhancing soul learning, healing & spiritual growth.

      ž  It promotes good health through physical & energetic crystal entrainment.

    • Create Sacred Space- this is the fun-destress-shiz right here! Crystals have the unique & mystical ability to transform our spaces into something magically enchanted & sacred. Used in just the right way, crystals can create a retreat allowing you to breathe…& each restorative breath allows you to spiritually replenish. Crystals can create a serene environment that uplifts your spirit, allows love to flow, restores & soothes your soul & will connect you with Source Energy. If you haven’t done so already, you can grab my Free Create Sacred Space with Crystals eKit where you’ll have everything you need to create your own stress-reducing crystal haven. 

    Now, go have a Glittery Stress-Free Day!

     

     

    P.S. If you’d like a little help + guidance in meditating & getting to know your crystals, I’ve developed a convenient eKit that’s super cheap ($9.97) to help you get on with that; my Get to Know Your Crystals Ekit.

    a little something to encourage you

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work 21 Comments

    From time to time we all struggle.

    Me too.

    You get that feeling in your gut…sometimes you know what caused it…sometimes you have no idea. But that feeling is there none the less.

    Don’t let that feeling ruin your day or week or month.

    Grab it by the short & curlies & kick it out!! Yeah…I said it!

    Crystals help me to do that every single time. They are my spiritual supports with this sort of thing. Nothing does a better job for me.

    Crystals are here to uplift us when we need it, & give us that feeling of encouragement from within. A total new attitude latitude.
    Here are some crystals we can use for that:

    • What’s 1 thing you’re terrified to do but you know you need to bust through that fear?? Grab a red garnet! Announce that fear. Grab your garnet, call that fear by NAME & then tell us your plan below for  conquering it!
    • The more positive you are about yourself the more positive you’ll be towards others. Blue calcite can help with that. ♥
    • Change your life & get rid of that victim mentality & victim vocabulary. Grab some black tourmaline & smokey quartz & LET IT GO!
    • Release & FORGIVE. Life’s too short, Jelly Bean. Celestite will help with that.
    • Shift your focus! Where thoughts go, energy flows. Focus on the kind of day want & use fluorite to help you keep that focus.

    How’s that for an attitude adjustment, Crystal Hottie? I was just getting warmed up.

    I KNOW what you may be going through. I’ve been there. We’ve all been there.

    But we don’t have to STAY there!

    We all have the power to change our attitude & perspective. For me, using a beloved crystal as a tool & support just makes it a whole lot easier when I’m already feeling drained.

    A special crystal that you’ve created a bond with can gift you with joy & grace…this very moment. It can gift you with whatever you need!

    What will it be Sweet Pea?

    Crystal Blessings to you,

     

     

    P.S. Please comment below & share with us all what crystal are you feeling drawn to?…what crystal will inspire or encourage you today? Hmmmm?

    How Do You Know When to Cleanse Your Crystals?

    Hibiscus Moon cleansing, Crystal Healing, Crystals 3 Comments

    Hey! Happy Valentine’s Day (Love Yourself Day), Chick Pea!!

    A couple week’s ago I did a crystal survey on my FB page asking:

    “If we had some one on one time, what 1 question would you ask of me?”

    I promised that I would take the 2 most popular questions & turn 1 into a blog post & the other into a video.

    The 2 most popular questions were:

    1. How do you know when to cleanse your crystals?

    2. What 5 crystals should you have in your beginner’s kit?

    So just in case you missed it on my YouTube Channel, here was my response to the THE #1 most popular crystal-related question:

    How Do You Know When to Cleanse Your Crystals?

    OH! If you’d like to know my absolutely most fav method in the whole wide world to re-tune my crystals, it’s using sound acoustics. I explain how to do that here:

    Crystal Energy Cleansing using Sound: How To Cleanse Your Crystals

    Since I always get asked, these are the crystal singing bowls I use & recommend…Silver Sky Imports (yes, they’re expensive & very fragile) & these are the tuning fork set that I use. Nope, it doesn’t matter what frequency you use when it comes to re-tuning a crystal. :)

    And my answer to question #2 was posted here a couple weeks back.

    Super Sparkles to you today!
