Who Are You to Be Healing Others?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing 26 Comments

Yep.

I know that’s a possible question running through your mind…. or some ballsy person has actually questioned you with that one.

It used to go through my mind and just about everyone else’s on this path too. I know. I totally get it. It’s only human to question yourself, but do it too much and it really starts to eat away at your confidence. 
Are you waiting until you’re perfectly “healed” before you feel you can start any healing on others?
 

I’ve been teaching classes in crystal healing since 2010 and founded the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy back in 2011. Over the years I’ve heard it all from our students and alumni:
“Yep, I graduated. I’ve got more than a few a certifications under my belt in a few different modalities. But my chakras aren’t all perfectly balanced yet. I still have issues to heal. Who am I to heal others?“
I’m calling bullshit on that. Get over it and get over yourself.

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

None of us are perfect & probably NEVER will be.

All those healers/teachers out there pretending to be so and never admitting to any vulnerabilities or faults… all smoke & mirrors, Glitter Bomb. That’s all it is.

Even the highest ascended masters & source energy itself have some imperfections. It’s true!

And being in balance is something that is never complete. It’s something we all need to continually work on. I feel we’re all here on planet to continue learning and working on ourselves. That’s what Mama Earth School is for. So, if we’re all planning on sitting and waiting for all of us to become perfectly balanced, awakened, enlightened or WHATEVER before we ever begin the very-much needed job of assisting others in healing… well then… Oh shit… we’re all in trouble. Right?

One of the most important tenants of what I teach in my course is that YOU are not THE healer. You are simply assisting and facilitating… we can all heal each other & that healing is a 2-way street… both the facilitator & the “heal-ee” exchange & receive healing energy. It’s a 2-way conduit to source energy. We’re giving & we’re receiving; and sure as heck we need it. Those of us who consider ourselves energy workers, light workers, crystal “healers’, therapists, etc…. we need that healing just as much as everybody else does. ♥ I know I do!

So please, get out there, share your gifts, and heal other people… or more accurately assist them in healing themselves… and be healed.

Also keep in mind, 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! ♥
Your “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 or remembered something? Does it feel familiar or is it even triggering an “a-ha!” moment for you? If it is, pay close attention to that. 😉
So, are you the All-Mighty Healer?
Now this is the ONE thing that is the BIGGEST obstacle that gets in the way because if you think that’s the way it works; that the crystal healer or energy worker is actually doing the healing… then yes, those are some HUGE shoes to fill and I would run the other way too.

You must understand that 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 and assist the client or heal-ee in healing themselves.

I mean this in the nicest way possible, but …you really need to get ova yourself.
Is HMCA right for you?

Having said all this… I also want to make sure that we attract the right kind of student here at the HMCA (Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy).

I love you all…but we’re not all cut out to do this work & some people have different expectations of my academy as we do of our students & graduates.

  • 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 and 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 more about qualifying you, allowing you to really get to know your crystals on a whole other level while boosting your confidence by learning the science behind how crystals work …and taking a more personal approach to that.

We require you to DO the work and EARN your certification.

We require you to:

  • ask critical thinking questions,
  • do some self assessment
  • do experiential exercises
  • do a comprehensive final assessment

Yep, offering a serious certification makes it much harder to run my sacred crystal biz, but due to my self-imposed level of integrity, I feel this is the only way to do it… even though it brings a whole other level of complexity & accountability to my biz.

For me, certification means we are responsible for the people certifying through us & making sure that my graduation process is one of integrity. That means we have lots of checks & balances in place along with a strict grading process & verification checks.If you’re looking for a “certification” that allows you to just pay for your certificate and never checks to see if you really integrated the curriculum, those courses are out there… but mine is not the course you’re looking for.

(COULD NOT resist the chance to throw in a Star Wars reference there.)

OK, now that I’ve covered who it’s for & who it’s not for… if you’re interested in getting certified as a Crystal Healer via my course, this is your only chance to register for the Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Course for 2017! We’re closing the doors soon and all payment plans will soon be gone. First day of class is September 5th.

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 the right one for you – I hope to still have the opportunity to serve you & have you be a part of our community, Crystal Hottie.

Are you ready to serve your life purpose and cut the strings that are holding you back?  Affirm your intentions & share in the comments below!  The world needs your healing love and light.  ❤

Many Crystal Blessings,

    Top 10 Crystal Blog Posts

    Get your sparkly lasso b/c it’s crystal round-up time!

    Today I’m going to list out my 10 Most Popular Crystal Blog Posts of 2016!

    Just in case you missed any of these last year, I want to make sure you see them now. **These blog posts really vibed it up BIG-TIME with our Crystal Hottie Community so chances are…you’re going to love at least a few of them too!**

    So here they are…my most sparkliest 10 posts of 2016:
    1.  More Fake Crystals to Watch Out For! (I’ve got some new ones for ya…)
    The artificial mineral market is continuing to grow & it seems there’s a “gap” in good reliable info on this sort of thing in general.

    I get really super-duper passionate about getting this info out there & I feel I’m in a very unique position to do just that, being a former science department chair, having studied geology at the Masters level & being a Crystal Healing Teacher with a pretty large platform  gives me a great advantage…so how could I NOT heed the call?

    I’m so honored to be able to serve in this way & grateful for being given the opportunity to do so!

    2. 9 Signs You May be a Crystal Hoarder | Part 1
    Have you seen or heard of that show “Hoarders“?

    OR perhaps you know of some hoarders in your life.  Some of us have family members or loved ones that just popped into our heads, right? 

    OR…are you getting that little niggly feeling that perhaps YOU might be a Crystal Hoarder?

    Hey, it’s OK if you are…many of us get that feeling. I know b/c I hang with a pretty crystal-obsessed bunch of which I may be the worst obsessor of them all. 😉

    OK, I know I like to joke around…but this is serious shizzle here. Watch this …

    3. Navigating Depression; How Crystals Can Help

    At one time or another, I’d guess that everyone has been touched by depression.

    Some of us end up battling with it more than others.

    I personally know depression from all sides. I’ve experienced it myself & have had several close family members who’ve had to deal with it.

    I know that it’s debilitating & it can make you anxious b/c you’re so desperate to just get out of that feeling of hopelessness. There are many different levels & shades of depression & all may need to be dealt with differently.

    4. How To Program a Crystal
    I wanted to actually call this blog post: “How to TUNE IN + Set Your Intention using a Crystal”, but I KNEW that the title that I settled upon up there would grab way more attention b/c it’s a topic I’m often asked about…“How do I program my crystal?”

    That’s the lingo everyone is using. So when in Rome…

    OK, so let me set the record straight here from MY perspective.

    And keep in mind that this is my opinion on what works best & is most efficient…my theory, my method from the research & work that I’ve done & have had many of my students carry out as well…this is precisely what I teach my students in my courses.

    5. Are crystals alive?
    Are our beloved crystals ALIVE?

    Are there living “entities” in crystals?

    Do they have consciousness?

    Are they having a life experience?

    Is it like a conscious being, the crystal itself?

    My opinion is that, yes, they have a form of consciousness. It may not be in the same way we experience or understand that but, yes.

    We may even apply some sort of “consciousness” to all matter…

    6. Cutting Cords Using Crystals
    First of all, you might be wondering what am I even talking about, cutting cords;  what does this mean?

    Well sometimes we feel like something is tugging or pulling on our energy, our soul or holding us back or blocking us in some way;  and in the energetic healing world this is often known as “cords being hooked into our energy field”…being hooked into our actual electromagnetic field. Sort of like being caught up in cobwebs.

    7. Got Crystals? Don’t Know What to Do with Them All? 4 Action Steps for You!
    I have a question for you:

    Too many crystals, not enough time?
    I sense that this may be starting to become a wee-little problem in our Crystal Hottie community. Some Crystal-Hoarding, perhaps?
    Are we in need of a 12 Step Program here? 😉
    Hey! I’m the worst offender! I’m not immune in any way.

    8. My Current Favorites | Crystals & Otherwise
    It’s been a while since I’ve done a video like this … and I’ve noticed these have become quite popular now…for people to do “monthly favorites”

    Personally, I kind of waffle back & forth on if I should do one of these again OR not.

    It would be great if you could definitely let me know in the comments  (down at the bottom of this page), what you think… if I should do more of this? If this is sparkly enough for you?  Also, if you have recommendations for other stuff I should check out, please share with me!

     First Favorite!  You know it has to be a crystal to kick this off right?

    9. Do Others Think You’re Woo-Woo Weird? 3 Steps to Own Your Sparkly Shit!
    Are you uncomfy coming out of the “crystal closet“?

    Afraid others will think you’re weird, not get you or think that you’re just totally out to lunch?

    “What is all this sage burning, crystal collecting, essential oil rubbing wacko-ness?”

    I get it. It’s hard when everyone around you is not doing the same thing.

    And they don’t really get it.

    Story Time!

    This 1 time I went to the doctor’s office & had my doc probing around with her stethoscope to check my heartbeat and had to explain to her what those hard lumps were protruding from my bra. She had a complete & total poker face while I told her that “those were my crystal companions for the day’s energies that I wanted to infuse into my electromagnetic field”.

    10. Crystal Energy Experiment: SEE the PROOF for yourself!
    It’s Experiment Time! 

    You know how I love to share science with you! And being a former science teacher, I really get into experiments!

    Plus many of you are always asking for proof of the crystal energy I always speak of.

    So, I want to show you the results of a crystal energy experiment using the Scientific Method that I recently spent some time doing…and that you can replicate for yourself (hallmark of a good sound scientific experiment!)

    Unlock the Door to Non-Invasive Healing Modalities

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, interview 11 Comments

    Hi Crystal Hottie!

    I’ve got another “Crystal Healer Interview” today! 

    And just in case you’re not familiar with what exactly is goin’ down here today…these Crystal Healer Interview blog posts are SPECIAL. Because these are the brave souls who are DOIN’ it! These are the Crystal Hottie Change Agents.

    Allow me to introduce you to crystal healing from another perspective (other than my own). So we’ve got a few Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers & Advanced Crystal Masters who are so generously sharing their stories with us.

    Well, I’m excited today to introduce you to Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Wendy Becerra of Wholistic Blessings.

    Wendy’s gorgeous message here is about our responsibility as Crystal Healers to share the knowledge & spread the crystal light.

    She talks about her lifelong connection with crystals and how that has grown & blossomed into a budding career in energy work.

    And Here’s Wendy …

    ♥♥♥
    What brought you to the world of crystal healing?
    About 10 years ago, after much of life’s “craziness”, my hubby, son, kitty and I moved from Miami and a co-worker (in the pharmacy) gave me a pendant of larimar.

    This larimar provided me with calm when I suffered from anxiety. Studying this crystal and others began to open the door more and more to this possibility of crystal healing.

    While I lived in Miami’s fast pace and had an overflowing amount of family and family responsibility, I really had no time to study or do what I enjoyed.

    Between collecting my crystal babies and going to the park I began to heal and feel more relaxed and better able to navigate thorough my new-found identify and life without everybody else’s stuff.

    What crystal has had the biggest effect on you?
    Oh this one’s kind of tough.

    As with many healers, one of the first crystals I purchased was amethyst, citrine, carnelian and clear quartz.

    I have a complete amethyst obsession! I can’t wait to have a Huge Amethyst Cathedral.

    Moldavite has a special place in my heart because it really accelerated much spiritual and expanded awareness. The best part is I don’t feel overwhelmed by its energy. There have even been times I’ve even slept with it.

    My double terminated smokey Tibetan quartz has shared so much information with me while I’ve meditated. I have seen our entire galaxy and have heard the message from the collective and “the bigger picture”. It’s an enhydro and that makes it even extra special to me.

    What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this crystal-path?
    The peace and serenity my family, friends, and I feel in our home. Everyone says they feel so cared for and relaxed when they’re in our home.

    Also, when my son comes and asks for a “crystal massage” to help him relax…simply amazing!

    When I realized there is a huge amount of healing power in crystals, I was drawn to crystal gridding before I even knew it was a “thing”. Then on December 2012, I was pulled to create crystal grid for the Collective’s healing every month on the full moon.

    Once I became a Reiki practitioner 5 years ago, I discovered that I loved combining crystals and Reiki together!
    I can’t tell you how satisfying and fulfilling it is to see the patient’s light come back or brighten in their eyes!!!
    I live for seeing the lights come on and get brighter. It’s like they’ve been plugged in again.

    The patients feel as thought they have “new life”. I believe that is what has made the BIGGEST difference in my life. I must add that after they’ve been plugged in, I get a sense of peace and feel “lifted” myself.
    What’s your go-to Crystal for grounding?
    My favorite would be a magnetite in each hand.

    My other favorites are healer’s gold (pyrite with magnetite), black tourmaline and hematite.

    I tend to be a bit “flighty” and I often forget to ground. So when I feel too “in the head” I re-calibrate and get “land legs” when I hold onto these. It feels as though I put on a pair of weighted boots.
    What are your BIG DREAMS now that you’ve graduated as a CCH?
    I want to build a successful, and loving Crystal Reiki practice preferably an office near my home or a space in my home especially for healing, which would enable me to be close to my son.

    I see myself working and volunteering with 2 causes which are very important to me:

    • Clean water for everyone
    • Crystal healing with special needs children

    My son has been diagnosed with high functioning autism and takes no medicine. So working with special needs and helping parents and caretakers know that there are alternative treatments and practices with a more natural and non-gmo diet can benefit their children greatly.

    My BIGGEST DREAM is to travel in an RV so my son could experience travel in a comfortable way and be able to spread crystal healing knowledge while on our travels. I believe we are here to turn on each others flames and awareness to “be the change we wish to see in the world.”
    It really is up to us to unlock and open the door to these non-invasive healing modalities.
    Wendy’s Bio: After 21 years of working as a certified pharmacy tech and my son’s autism diagnosis, I went in the opposite direction for natural and alternative healing. As a facilitator and conduit of healing, I’m utterly passionate about empowering others (and myself) to be healthy, strong, in peace;  the very best version of themselves (and myself) as possible.
