Can Crystal Color Determine it’s Meaning? & Who made up the BUNK that crystal energy can be based on color!?

This question came in & I think it is so funny how this is worded:

Who made up the BUNK that crystal energy can be based on color?

Ha! Here’s the vid…

Yeah! So where’d this bunk come from?
All right, so I don’t know that it’s necessarily a “who made it up” type a’ thing.

Actually, this whole concept of color & crystals aligning with different energy centers throughout our bodies & resonating with different organs & glands has been around for thousands & thousands of years & is a common thread through many different cultures. It goes back to ancient teachings.

And it’s actually something that we can scientifically back up & even measure in some instances (I get much deeper into that in my Certified Crystal Healer Course).

Rather than someone “making it up” I feel it’s actually a case of many different cultures tapping in at the same time to a particular teaching or Universal Knowing…a collective tapping in of collective consciousness (or unconsciousness) & all coming up with the idea at the same time. This has been known to happen with scientists , inventors, discoverers, etc.; actually where 2 different scientists in different parts of the world will all of a sudden make identical discoveries…like this vibrational wave comes through and then they will both tap into the same discovery or invention at the same time! Then there’ll be these accusations flying around that someone stole it from someone else. But back in the days when the only way to share information was via a letter on a ship, that was most likely not the case at all, but instead, that they tapped in vibrationally at the same time to the same collective idea. Pretty cool, right? (Biologist, Rupert Sheldrake has based his theory of the Morphogenic Field on this concept.)

…or perhaps “others” brought that knowledge here to Earth at one time. (If you’re interested in that look into the teachings of  Zecharia Sitchin)
Back to the Crystal Bunk
So, about different crystals & mineral energy being based on their color: for instance, the teachings that say all blue crystals are for gentle calming, all pink crystals are for love, etc.

I don’t feel that is always 100% the way that it goes every single time.

I feel that not every single green-hued crystal is going to exude the same exact sort of energy. However, due to specific light frequencies of the green wavelength many of your green crystals will be aligned to heart chakra energy to prosperity, to health, to vitality. Not every single green crystal (due to many other variables), but many will generally fall into those general categories.

In addition,  keep in mind that not every single person is going to get the same “feeling” from an emerald due to individual varying vibrational frequencies of the person.

See, I feel that around 85% of the people will tap into the same vibrational frequency, but I’ve said it time & time again we all have a different vibrational frequency slightly different on average to each other. That’s going to not allow everybody to neatly fit into “the rigid box” of everyone picking up the same exact energy from a green emerald in the same way. Get what I mean?

What is Crystal Color?
In order answer this question we need to understand what color is.

Color is a visual representation what we are able to visually perceive of electro-magnetic frequency (light). We cannot see all light on the electro-magnetic spectrum. We’re only able to see a very narrow band on that spectrum. And we call that band visible light.

Now, I feel that some people can see a little bit more into the infrared, some people can see a little bit more into ultraviolet & beyond (we know some animals can do this, crystals pick up others parts of the spectrum)…the see’ers! But most of us can see the visible light band & that’s it.

So, there’s all of this stuff over here outside the band that are “colors” that we can’t see.

So as I said, when you see green that is a very specific light frequency. So it’s a very specific wavelength of energy that you are able to see, but it doesn’t just manifest as visible light. It has different octaves that repeat themselves & can be felt & represented in different ways.

What you’re seeing and we talk about “color” is a very specific vibrational frequency.

Now, here’s the kicker!

So, that crystal that looks “green” to you isn’t actually green. In fact, it’s every other color BUT green. What I mean is that it looks green to you b/c it’s absorbing every other light frequency except the green one & reflecting the green. It’s bouncing off the green wavelength.

So, that’s the specific frequency that it’s bouncing off! It’s the green frequency that if you’re able to pick up or perceive in whatever way you tend to do that, with your eyes, with your hands…or you enter the electromagnetic field of that crystal & that’s the energy you’re going to interact with: green energy, Baby!

It makes sense that other stones that are within the same color vicinity will have similar but slightly different energies.

And there you go…hope that explains in a general, but scientific way where this bunk comes from. 😉

Do you feel that all crystals of a color all affect us in the same way? Do you have experiences or stories to share on this topic? Please post in the comments below!

Are you an Introvert? The 5 Best Crystals For Introverts

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Crystals, Everyday/Personal Stuffs 18 Comments

Are you

Are you an introvert?

What most people think of as an introvert is a hermit, someone who’s very, very shy, who never wants to speak to others. And definitely NOT someone who’s putting themselves out there on the Internet in blog form, video form, newsletters what have you….like I do.

So many people would look at me & what I do & think I’m definitely an extrovert, right?

Well, they’re wrong.
It’s all about Energy, Baby!
So what does introvert/extrovert actually mean?

Swiss psychiatrist, C. G. Jung used these 2 terms a bit differently than how many of us may use them, but his explanation makes the most sense to me.

So, most of us think of an extrovert as being very sociable & outgoing. And an introvert is often thought of as withdrawn, quiet & shy

Jung, on the other hand, described these terms as a way to measure the favored way to direct energy:

  • EXTROVERT – prefer to focus your energy outwardly, to the outer world & to other people, you get an energy boost from being around others, energy gets zapped when you spend too much time alone.
  • INTROVERT – prefer to focus your energy inwardly, on your inner world, you get an energy-suck from being around people for long periods of time, need to be alone to recharge your battery.

Now, before you clearly label yourself as 1 or the other, know that most of us usually  lean more strongly towards 1 or the other, BUT we’re all some sort of a mix of both:

“There is no such thing as a pure introvert or extrovert. Such a person would be in the lunatic asylum.” —Carl G. Jung

One thing I’ve found is that many of us Crystal Hotties (& those who enjoy crystals or consider themselves light workers of any sort)  consider themselves to be introverts.

Would that be you?

Yep, I’m very much an introvert,  even though I may seem very much out there & come across as quite social. This introvert-stuff seems to be a common thread that runs through a lot of us in our community.

Yes, I’m rockin’ & marketing an online business as an introvert. Seems impossible, right? Actually, I’ve also noticed that those of us that do enjoy putting ourselves out there online; putting our faces out there, our writing out there, making ourselves vulnerable online….can be quite the opposite & very introverted in our private lives.

Sometimes, even the online stuff can get to be a bit much & you just need to take a break. I’m currently on a month-long social media fast. As much as I love interacting on there, I also feel the need to take that break…lovin’ the time off.

Currently posted on my Facebook Page. ‘Tis the Season!

As far as my private life goes, I definitely would label myself as a hardcore introvert.

Oh my. If you asked my neighbors [heehee] they would think I’m a total anti-social hermit introvert. Maybe it’s a balancing effect of being so extroverted online. I just know that when I’m home, I feel like it’s my sacred-sanctuary-safe-space. I really need to pull in my energy when it comes to my private life. So I don’t feel comfy going out there & mingling with all the neighbors on the sidewalk & sharing all kinds of personal stuff.

Another wacko-doodle quirk about me?…I also like to know when someone is coming over for a visit. It’s like I need to prepare myself energetically. And the longer the visit, the more prep time I need.

When I’m at a live event, I make certain to keep to my break time boundaries in place (alone time & retreat to some place quiet), b/c if I don’t, then I can’t give my full energy to the teaching or event.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m a hugger, I like to mingle, take photos & laugh & meet with peeps at these events. In fact, I love it! So, this does not mean that we introverts aren’t completely enjoying the company and the event itself.

It just means that an introvert simply can’t handle as much of it or for as long as an extrovert can.

So, although, I’ll probably have a great time, afterwards I would be drained for DAYS….until I figured out how to mange my energy.

I also feel like my everyday life needs to have certain boundaries & restrictions too so I can feel comfortable & safe. I even have really strict boundaries about [I’m laughing right now typing this]…when I will answer the phone or look at texts, where voice-mails can be left, when I talk to my friends & family on the phone.

Yes, I know, I know!! I’m kind of weirdo like that & I OWN IT. Definitely introverted in that way.

For a long time I used to beat myself up or have lots of shame around how I am….until I realized WHY. #IntrovertSideEffects

My close friends know these things about me, make fun of me (I’m totally OK with that b/c it DESERVES being made fun of) & accept me with all my quirks. Family? They may not be as easily accepting, but they deal. You know how that goes. 😉

When I’m traveling or when I’m out & about running errands I usually don’t just strike up random conversations with people unless something really strikes my fancy or the person looks like they really need that in that moment. Mostly because small talk doesn’t interest me in the least. I love deep meaningful introspective conversations. Can you imagine striking one of those up with the checkout person at the store that you’ve never seen before? Hey, it can happen. *shrugs shoulders*

I’ll often times send people energy,  that I don’t know, that I feel look like they need it. Heart-centered energy. So it’s not like I don’t have any compassion or I’m not thinking of these people or anything, but small talk is like a slow drain on my energy.

I’ll go out to local energy healing events, classes & things, but I won’t make a huge effort to go out & find a whole bunch of new friends and say, “Hey, I’m Hibiscus Moon. Crystal Blessings!” So if you ever see me at anything like that do come up and say “Hi”. I love when people do that. Don’t feel like this is laying down a barrier, but people might be surprised that I’m not out there with a billboard on myself being an extrovert in my every day life, b/c of how non-shy I am about promoting online.

One thing that I know helps me in keeping my energy balanced as an introvert is working with crystals. I’m not talking about wiping out the introvert tendencies completely.  I feel they are important & serve a vital purpose.

For me, the goal here is not to become more extroverted. Instead, I prefer to nurture & support what we know works for an introvert; like needing time alone to recharge & neutralizing energy that could be felt as harmful.
5 CRYSTALS FOR INTROVERTS
1. Gold

Any sort of gold jewelry will work so this is a very practical mineral to work with. Gold comes in really handy for introverts b/c it has a very bold, strong & masculine energy so if you know you’re going to be in a social situation for a long period of time you may need a Golden Boost. Or if you feel your energy starting to wane & be depleted, maybe you can eek out another hour or so by tapping into your gold-energy. It’s great for amplifying & stimulating what energy you have left to make it last just a bit longer. It’s also great for giving you the stamina you need to navigate through a social situation that’s starting to wear on you.
2. Black Tourmaline

Black tourmaline’s supportive energy is an all time favorite for being a sort of shield while purifying & transmuting any energy that may feel negative to us in any way. So I usually try to wear my black tourmaline jewelry, carry some in a pocket. And b/c this stone is great for purifying us of anything that feel toxic to us, I may also work with it when I’m done with an event or situation that may feel energy-depleting to me.
3. Smokey Quartz

Smokey quartz is another go-to fav. for these sorts fo things. It’s a champ at transmuting negative-feeling energies and for strengthening you to be able to last the energy-depleting situations a little longer. It’s practically interchangeable with black tourmaline so it really just depends on what you have at hand and what your preference is.
4. Clear Quartz w/ Indicolite inclusions (aka Blue Quartz)
Blue Quartz available from Earthegy.com. Use my coupon code HM10 for 10% off.

This crystal will allow you to be emotionally balanced while you are in the company of others. It allows you to make meaningful connections with others & will help you to shift your energy so that energy leaks aren’t happening before they should. Just be sure to monitor the amount of time you’re in the company of others & take regular breaks for alone time as needed.
5. Mahogany Obsidian
Mahogany Obsidian available from Earthegy.com. Use my coupon code HM10 for 10% off.

 

This gorgeous obsidian is perfect for helping those of us with Introvert-Shame (me! me! me!) simply get over it! It’s great for shifting our energy around this so it’s a good stone to work with on a regular basis or to create a crystal grid with for the purpose of dissolving that shame. We Introverts have nothing to be ashamed of!

Now, in the midst of the Holidays, you may need these tips more than ever so I hope you find them helpful. If you have some others you’d like to add to the list, please share them in the comments below for our Crystal-lovin’ Crystal Hottie Community!

The Insider’s Guide to Feeling and Sensing Crystal Energy

Hibiscus Moon energy work 16 Comments

Video thumbnail for youtube video Sensing Crystal Energy - Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy | Crystal Healing | Crystal Healer | Crystal Therapy | Certified Crystal Healer | Crystal Grids | Crystal Healing Course

Crystal Blessings Everybody!  Here’s another Crystal Q&A Video for ya & this one’s on the topic of Sensing Crystal Energy.

Thanks to Sharron from Ottawa, Ontario for calling in with this great question about her son’s abilities to move crystals while hovering his hand over them & not touching them.  Sharon asks if her son is

“highly energized, or what makes the crystals move & shake without being touched?”

I think this stuff is so coooool. Check it out, Crystal Hottie:

Crystals are a great tool to start with because it is easier to connect with their energies, which is why they’re great for healing on so many different  levels with all kinds of people all over Mama Earth! Crystals have a special relationship with us because they have a precise geometric pattern in their molecular structure that give that base resonant frequency a really precise pattern for us to connect with energetically.

So, this most likely means Sharon’s son has a really high resonance with crystals.  His ability to move them with his own energy, his own mind, tells us  that he  is easily entraining with the vibrational frequencies of the crystals.

Probably, with practice, he’ll also be able to move other items, without touching them physically.

Moving stuff with your mind is referred to as Telekinesis, or Psychokinesis and there have been many, many people throughout the ages with these extraordinary abilities.  People have been tested over and over again –  while to date, scientists have not been able to disprove their ability.

Wish you could do this too? Well, this isn’t something I can do, but I can sense crystal energy & that is the first step. Sensing crystal energy is something that I teach in my Certified Crystal Healer Course. There are many ways to sense energies but in this post we’re just going to focus on a few quick tips for sensing energies with your hands…
Tips for Sensing Crystal Energy

  • Clean healthy living allows your sensing abilities to be sharper
  • Regular meditation practice also allows your sensing abilities to be more in tune
  • Closing your eyes, wearing headphones & dampening your other senses while trying to sense your crystal energies with your hands allows you to be more focused on the sensations
  • Regular practice. I suggest that my students practice sensing crystal energies about 3 times a week. Just like everything else, the more you practice, the better you get at it.

If your interested in  exploring a little further on this fascinating subject, here’s that video I mentioned by my Irish friends You Tube friends, Dreaming of Avalon…Click here to watch that. Tell them I sent you! 😉

I’m so glad Sharon asked this question! Something I feel strongly about & am always always, saying to my students, is to Never Stop Asking Questions.

Can you move something with just your mind?
You all know how much I believe in the strength & power of thoughts & how positive change can bring about magical life opportunities & experiences (and crystals can help with that – of course!) – So why wouldn’t some peeps be able to move crystals with the power of their mind?

Can you do it or do you know someone who can? I believe, do you? Tell me in the comments below 😉

Oodles of Crystal Blessings!

Down & Dirty Debate Over Crystal Healing

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, science 47 Comments

canva

You know I love me a good debate on the scientific accuracy or claims of crystal healing. I’ve been known to indulge a time or two.

Here’s one that took place on my Facebook page that I thought you might enjoy reading here on the blog.

Anonymous FB Poster (aka AFB): If you have even one piece of evidence for your scientific claims you will change the world. Please post some links to your academic peer-reviewed studies and trials. Or you could just block anyone who disagrees with you from commenting.
Hibiscus Moon (HM): I only do that if someone spews disrespect or negativity on my page. I simply won’t allow that in my space. Just as Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor has taught us, I ask that people take responsibility for the energy they bring into any space or transaction & if they cannot do that, then yep, they’re banned…without hesitation. I never block anyone for disagreeing with me. You’re still here, right? And are always welcome.

I’m happy to entertain such debates with those that do it in a mature & respectful way. Heck, I live for this stuff! Please check out my blog post here on the subject.

AFB: Your link does not provide any evidence. It’s simply a list of your counter arguments that you give when you are asked for evidence. You are very defensive. I am always mature and respectful. I have an open mind and I’m asking for you to prove your theories.

HM: I don’t feel I’m being defensive…but maybe so as I am defending my point of view.  And you are certainly welcome to yours…always. That blog post I refer to does explain exactly why you won’t find crystal healing evidence in academic and peer-reviewed journals. In addition, if you’ve decided that your mind is closed to it and it won’t work…then it won’t. Here’s another post that may interest you.

AFB: There is a reason they can’t get their stuff into medical journals. Because it doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. That is not the fault of the scientific community. Science doesn’t mind being “wrong”, if you have evidence this would really change the world. You’re entitled to your opinion but you can’t claim to be “scientific” if you don’t follow the rules of science.

HM: I’m a product of very scientific academia with a Masters in Science as well as a former Science Dept. Head of 10+ years & very much admire the scientific community. Truly. Having been immersed in it for so long, I am also all too aware of the discrimination that occurs when you don’t follow the mainstream scientific dogma & have to disagree with you  on this: sometimes the scientific community does mind very much when it’s wrong. At times, some scientists will put up quite a fight to defend old dogma that has been proven incorrect.

Case in point: After decades of contradictory evidence regarding atom physics & “the proton problem”, scientists finally have no choice but to come to terms with it & admit there may be a whole new realm of physics that the current “laws of physics” do not fit…not something they really wanted to do & some are still kicking & screaming about it.

And don’t even get me started on how scientific genius, Nikola Tesla was ridiculed.

Remember…we all used to believe with great conviction that the EARTH WAS FLAT!

AFB:

HM: I hardly find it to be anti-intellectualism or ignorance that some scientists seem to be much less stubborn than others. I do admire skepticism, yet keeping an open-mind. Dr. Richard Gerber said it best,

“Since no one in this controversial field can get anything into the orthodox medical journals to being with, there are obviously no sources of credible references to quote.

Therefore the medical journals are safe in their ivory towers of scientific dogmatism.”

Some say all this crystal healing is due to a “feel-good” factor or placebo effect. And if that’s all it did, that would be beneficial enough (which is why alternative therapies are indeed being adopted by Western Medicine as well as some health insurances)…but there is so much more to it than that.

Now, if you’re looking for data & studies referring to this, please read physicist Dr. William Tiller’s work or The Field from Lynn McTaggart.

It seems you don’t have a clear “backstage” understanding of what goes on. I have years under my belt of witnessing it firsthand. If you care to find out more you can certainly dig in & research, but it’s not my mission to bring all that to light. I have front row seat experience to it & it has nothing to do with scrutiny as it does with politics. Plain & simple.
Then it got a little yuck for my taste. I deleted those comments but kep the bulk of the convo b/c I felt this was very valuable. Then I ended the convo with this…
HM: You obviously have your point of view that no one here is going to change. You’ve stated your piece & I’ve stated mine. Now this is starting to feel argumentative to me & it serves no more purpose other than to feed ego. So I’d like to leave this convo up for others to make up their mind, but let’s just agree to disagree here & keep the good vibes. Thanks!

And now here for my blog I’d like to add one more brilliant quote from physicist, Nassim Haramien:

“We are still in our infancy of exploring and discovering our local environment. There are people alive today who, when they were young, were told the universe was many many many times smaller than they are being told today. Perhaps this progression will only accelerate when we prove the universe we are in is only one of an infinite number of other universes in the holofractographic multiverse.”

You know…we think we know everything. We’re so enchanted by how clever we think we are. Yet…where else may great intelligence lie on this planet?

Some argue that crystals actually qualify as living beings; able to transmit & receive highly complicated electromagnetic frequencies. Perhaps they’re interpreting & communicating them in some unmeasurable way. I often wonder if not only do the crystals hold much more power & energy than we realize, but what else does? Perhaps we’re not NEARLY as smart as we think we are! What if we’re the least intelligent & least powerful of anything on this planet & we’re just bumbling around like so many amoebas in some pond water, while the real amoebas don’t give us a 2nd thought as they go about their genius affairs! Scientists can’t confirm or deny this.

That sort of thinking used to get me some sideways looks from my science department BUT apparently, a famously celebrated astrophysicist wonders about these things too:

We all know people LOVE to have proof! I just did a recent blog post on that topic.

And people LOVE to get some science in with their metaphysics. I know this is why my Certified Crystal Healer Course is so popular. B/c I provide that in spades.

You know…hindsight is always 20/20…I should have added to this convo on FB (which I will do here now in this blog post)…you know…science doesn’t really prove anything at all. There is always some uncertainty that comes along with our beloved “scientific conclusions”; science never absolutely proves shiz! If you really want to GEEK OUT & wax philosophical on that topic, go read this paper (its a downloadable pdf)

Sooo, my moral of this story is…hey…all of this could be a freakin’ dream! If you know it makes you feel good to use crystals on your journey then go do it.

Besides, I have some science to back it up. 😉

What do you think Crystal Hottie … do you need scientific proof that crystals help nourish and support your well being?  Tell me what you think in the comments below.

Namaste,
