Are you an Introvert? The 5 Best Crystals For Introverts

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Crystals, Everyday/Personal Stuffs 16 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 And an introvert is often thought of as withdrawn, quiet & shy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 Connecting with and Sensing Crystal Energy

Hibiscus Moon energy work 10 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 26 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,

 

 

Does My Crystal Not Want to Work with Me?

Hibiscus Moon energy work 2 Comments

Anoint crystals

So maybe you’ve experienced this…

You try to wear or work with a crystal but it keeps getting lost or falling off & or it even breaks. Multiple times. Is this a message for you?

What does this mean?

Well, this week I answer this common question for a Crystal Hottie my new BFF; it can mean several different things.
Does My Crystal Not Want to Work with Me?

As I discussed in the vid, it can mean:

  • maybe this is the wrong time for you to be working with this stone, timing is off (to test this out, try working with different crystal pieces of the same exact type)
  • It may just need to be vibrationally recalibrated. It needs a re-tuning (what some call “cleansing”)
  • It’s not ever going to be a vibrational match for you

I also mention some things you can try to prevent these sorts of things from happening:

  • Ease into working with the new stone more slowly or more gently than trying to force yourself to wear it all day long right off the bat (meditate with it for 5-10 min./day first, then try sleeping with it in your pillow case)
  • Anoint (aka consecrate) the piece before wearing it; this is a sort of little ritual prayer you can do to really create a vibrational bond & make the piece your own. I recommend doing this only after your pretty certain (from doing the above step) that this is a good vibrational match for you at this time. There are soooo many ways to do this, but a simple method is to do this in your sacred space (if you need ideas on how to create a sacred space grab my Free eKit here) take a tiny drop of anointing oil, essential oil or holy water (check that the stone’s Mohs Hardness is a 5 or more so as not to damage it) & rub it on the piece while stating a favorite affirmation or prayer. Then leave it in your sacred space for 7 days
  • Re-tune it when you notice anything funky happening. Here’s that video of mine where I teach about retuning crystals

This was a really fun question to answer + a got a new BFF out of it! ;)

I’d love for you to also call me up on my voicemail set up just for this purpose…video Q & A time!! I can’t guarantee it but if you have a good question I just may feature it in an upcoming video. Plus I love to hear your voices & connect with you in that way.  :) *Please note: this voice mail is not checked regularly & is not a way to get in touch with me or my Sparkle Support Team. You can do that on our Contact Page.*

Then…if you have some other tips or stories to share here in our Crystal Hottie Community, please tell us in the comments below. I love that we can all learn from each other.

Remember to always choose your crystal or gemstone jewelry by intuition. Your heart & inner knowing is usually right, so learn to tap into that, Sparkle Bomb. You can never really go wrong there.

Last but not least ~  share this blog post with your friends. I love to get this info out there far & wide with those who “get” energy & love to work with it, not against it. ♥

Namaste & much love to you!

Which Chakra needs Balancing, Part 2 of our Chakra Series

Hibiscus Moon chakras, cleansing, energy work 1 Comment

After reading Part 1 of our Chakra Series last week, you’re next question may have been:

How do I know which chakra needs balancing?

Well, there are several ways. :)

There are actually 4 main ways that I teach about…
1. Take a chakra test
There are several different ones online. You can do an a search & turn up many! And they’re quite reliable. Here are a few you can try out right now:

  • chakra test 1
  • chakra test 2
  • chakra test 3

2.  Glaring, physical or emotional issues
Here are some simple examples…

Like I mentioned in part 1, feeling anxious tells us there’s an issue with the root chakra.

If somebody has their creativity totally shut down that’s all about the sacral chakra.

If somebody has a very low self-esteem that’s solar plexus chakra energy.

Issues with love, expressing love, showing love, being very clingy in their romantic relationships or any kind of relationships; that would be heart chakra issues.

Not being able to express themselves or not being a good listener, that’s throat chakra stuffs.

Not being open to your intuition or your spirituality, closing that down…that’s third eye shcist, Jelly Bean.

Not having a good connection to source energy, being fearful with death that would be crown chakra.
3. Energy sensing
In my Certified Crystal Healer Course, I teach various ways you can learn & use to sense energy. And by doing this  type of sensing, you can determine if a chakra is overactive, underactive, needs some slight re-tuning or is in balance.

*Wish those energy-sensing methods were something I could include in a blog post but it’s a bit involved, requires lots of background knowledge & some demonstrations, precautions + practice time.

I brought my clear quartz pendant to Sedona & we used it to sense the energy of chakras while we meditated at the vortexes!!! This is a friend of ours checking on Frank’s crown chakra.
4. Tap into your intuition
This means you get an inner knowing from various senses & picking up messages & measurements regarding the chakra energies.  There are various ways to get an inner sense of the energy of each chakra. Some people have the gift of different types of clair-senses:

Here’s a quick list (some of these can fit into each other & some say there are even more than these):

  • Clairaudience – receive messages in the form of an audio; sound, speaking, vocalizations
  • Clairempathy – receive messages in the form of feelings
  • Clairsentience – an inner knowing that comes from within
  • Clairvoyance – receive messages in the form of visual pictures, sights

Some people can also do a meditation and get intuitive hints or messages regarding the chakras.
Chakra Balancing Combo Time!
If you’re not too confident or you’re getting mixed signals or it just doesn’t seem to clear to you…then I recommend using 2 or 3 of the above suggested methods to get a chakra consensus. If you get 2 contradictory results then try a 3rd method & go with the majority. ;)

You’ll find that over time & with practice your abilities to figure out which chakras are out of balance will get better & quite keen. You may even “just know” without needing to check.

So that’s part 2. Part 3 will be about exactly what to do with the crystals to help balance our chakras.

I hope you’re enjoying this series so far. Thanks so much, as always, for reading, sharing & joining in!

Mega Sparkles, Glitter, Jelly Beans & all that jazz!!

Does Solar Activity Affect Us?

Hibiscus Moon anxiety, astronomy, earthing, energy work, science

So, this solar pole flip energy stuff has some of us really flipped out, right?

As I discuss in this week’s featured video there’s nothing to fear because we’ve all done this before. The flip we’re in now is only the 4th observed since tracking began in 1976.
Does Solar Activity Affect Us? & Crystal Porn!

The Sun’s magnetic field flips regularly every 11 years at the peak of each solar activity cycle…when the Sun’s internal magnetic dynamo reorients itself. We’re not sure exactly why this occurs. Scientists predicted the flip would occur now & say it should be complete by December.

Think back to late 2000, early 2001. Do you remember anything significant happening? That’s when we had our last flip.

What’s happening now is that the sun’s magnetic field has weakened, eventually dying down to zero point before ramping up again with an opposite polarity. So, north is south & south is north. Flip-flop!

It’s important that you know, Lima Bean, that this is not a disastrous event.

BUT scientists do acknowledge the reversal will have ripple effects throughout our solar system, as it always does. So, there’s a lot of solar activity & what we call space weather headed our way during this event.
Reflecting on what I mentioned in the video, re: solar activity & earthquake correlation…check out this email sent out by EarthSkyNews last Saturday morning:

Does it affect us in any way?

YES. Every electromagnetic field in our solar system, including our own, is influenced to some extent & we can feel these effects on multiple levels.
Symptoms of the increase in space weather:

  • Feeling’ tired
  • Floaty
  • Autoimmune disease flare ups
  • Allergy symptom flare ups
  • Cranky
  • Dizzy
  • anxiety
  • Spaced out
  • Overly emotional
  • Uncoordinated
  • Lethargic

Please note: This is how these events effect most people, but not everyone will be effected in the same way. Some people actually get highly energized…it all depends on our individual vibration.

REMEMBER…no need to worry…we’ve done this all before. And here, I’m sharing with you some tools to make these transitions that much easier.
Prescriptions:

  • Staying in heart center…Remember, we’re all going through this together so be understanding
  • Focus in on the energy of our local stars, the Moon, and, of course, our Sun. We’re a part of this whole system. Lots of moving parts.
  • Crystal work with Black tourmaline, my go-to stone for this. Hematite is also great! In fact, I have what I call My Sacred Grounding Trio: black tourmaline, smokey quartz & hematite. Blizzard stone is another great one for balancing energies & uber-grounding.
  • Do lots of Earthing (check out that book!) Earthing is absolutely amazing! Get barefoot & go outside!!! The Ultimate in Grounding. Your feet are meant to connect with Mother Earth! That’s why animals are so well grounded & in-tune. They’re always barefoot!
  • Working on your root chakra. Many of us have an unbalanced root that needs our loving, caring attention.
  • Nourishing root-based foods (carrots, potatoes, shallots, etc.)
  • Touch therapies (massage, aroma-touch therapy, etc.)
  • Unplug & try to get away from electronic EMF’s & electro-pollution
  • There’s more on my other post here

Resources

  • If you’re really into learning about how the Sun’s activity affects & has affected humanity & the Earth you can totally geek out with this DVD; Solar Revolution.
  • Subscribe to SuspiciousObservers YouTube Channel This guy understands the data & the hard science & encourages you to do your own research, which I love!!

Can Moldavite be TOO Powerful?

Hibiscus Moon Crystals, energy work, meditation 37 Comments

Are there crystals that are just “too much” for us to work with? Perhaps some that we’re just not ready for? Like moldavite?

Moldavite?

Yep, it’s known as a “high-ascension” stone.

What does that mean?

High ascension stones are known for having powerful metaphysical properties & energy that are very easy for most to connect with…even for those of us who are usually dense to the energies. They are known to have a strong connection divine energies. Since these crystals & stones usually resonate with the higher chakras, working & meditating with them can be quite intense. So, that makes the idea of these stones very appealing.

But are you READY FOR IT?

I think you’re really gonna want to watch or listen to this video. It’s a sizzling-hot topic. ;) You’ll see why I said that when you watch the vid!

I also give you some gentler crystal alternatives to start off with. :)

After watching, please join in on the convo in the comments below.
Can Moldavite be TOO Powerful?

Here’s that blog post I refer to in the video.

I can’t wait to see your comments! I would love to hear your story about how moldavite (or other powerful crystals) have affected you. Specifically, I’d love to know:

  • What’s your experience working with high ascension crystals?
  • Have you ever worked specifically with moldavite? What did you get from it?
  • What’s your FAVORITE high-energy crystal?

I also hope this post doesn’t scare you off of moldavite or other high ascension stones. Just take it slow & steady…work up to it & see how you do & what they can do for you.♥

Please also share this with your crystal-lovin’ friends so they don’t have to deal with the fiery chest-burn. That sucker was HOT, let me  tell you!

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:

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.

How to use crystals to attract abundance

Hibiscus Moon amethyst, Crystal Grids, Crystals, energy work, gratefullness, law of attraction 12 Comments

One of the most popular classes I used to teach is 1 in which we learned to use crystals for abundance attraction, using the vibration of certain crystals to manifest more prosperity + abundance. But before we even start looking at the crystals we have bust out of our old mindset & get into the right 1.

New Abundance Mindset Comin’ Right Up!
Firstly, abundance & prosperity isn’t always about mula. It can mean acquiring enough of anything when their’s a lack. But many do tend to think of “money” when they think of “prosperity & abundance”.

We all know money isn’t the end all, be all. We know money can’t buy happiness, right?…but happiness CAN buy money!!!

Yep, it’s true. Your happy positive attitude about money can totally attract it to you. But if you hate those who have it & have icky feelings about it then it’s really not something that will ever be attracted to you. Is it, Sweet Pea?

And if you keep thinking that you’re in need of money & that’s why you’re reading this blog post….that’s exactly what you’re gonna get.

You’ll continue to “NEED MONEY!”

So, I feel it’s necessary to first get into the mindset of already being grateful for the prosperity & abundance that you already have. Before you even have it! It’s like quantum physics baby. There is no timeline so let’s just throw that out the window. Just flow with it & all the while remember to always be thankful for all the blessings, large & small…even the itty-bitty ones. We all have them. The very breath you’re taking now…be grateful for that. :)
My Morning Ritual
I’ve made a habit of being thankful every morning upon waking, before I even get out of bed. No matter what’s going on in my life or what occurred the day before. No matter what…I do it. I sit up & while doing my neck stretches, I try to think of all the lovely things in my life that I am thankful for. I visualize them & feel the warm fuzzies & then I send those energies love.♥ I mentally say “thank you”. I also sometimes have my hands in a particular mudra while doing this…and sometimes my kitty Topaz joins me in my lap along with a crystal that I keep by my bedside. Lately it’s been a lemurian wand that I love.

Habits like these are extremely attractive to abundance. Abundance really likes to hang around that sort of energy.

Be forewarned though. I know from past experience that just doing visualizations doesn’t always cut it for everyone & although I try to keep the negative speak & thought patterns at bay, I’m not always perfect with it. Its hard sometimes. Especially when those around you tend to drag you back into old habits. We get so easily caught up in it.

So, when this happens, it’s time to bust out the BIG GUNS…
CRYSTAL GRID to the rescue!!
My official definition: a crystal grid is a geometric pattern of energetically aligned stones charged by intention set in a sacred space for the purpose of manifesting a particular objective. My specific objective for this grid was to grow my sacred crystal biz to the point that I could leave my day job as a science teacher.

Did the grid work? Ha! Worked like a charm & I’m going to tell you exactly what I did it, step-by-step:

  • I jotted down on some little post-it notes names of crystals that I had on hand that would give me the career, business mojo, powerful punch I was looking for; orange calcite, citrine, peridot, pyrite & quartz for amplifying.
  • I decided upon the Flower of Life as my grid template
  • I then gathered up a green cloth & some large 9 day green candles in glass…the green color holds the frequency of abundance.
  • I laid all out all my supplies around me and just sat among them thinking it all through.
  • I then put everything into place and also decided to add a few photos of things that reminded me of what life will be like when my desire became my reality
  • This recipe was PERFECT. It worked like a charm. I’ve since tweaked the grid to align to my new goals.
    Feng Shui & Crystals
    A few years back, I intuitively placed a large Amethyst druse in my bedroom’s back corner. I later learned that in Feng Shui this very corner is known as the “Prosperity” corner in your home! Feng shui also says that the color purple (as in amethyst) is the color that nurtures wealth & prosperity. Who knew? My higher self guided me well, huh?
    Abundance Ritual
    Here’s an easy + quick little ritual that you can do & 1 that my students love! It allows you to shift your own personal prosperity energy anytime! Ready to give this a try?

    OK, Let’s do this

    • You’ll need 1 tumbled stone each of citrine, pyrite & jade along with a little pouch to carry them in, preferably a green or gold colored pouch.
    • Next, you write this affirmation on a small piece of paper & slip that into the pouch with the stones: “I attract & gratefully receive prosperity, abundance & success in my life.”
    • Carry this pouch with you everywhere for 1 full week & whenever you remember to do it, pull out the crystals, hold them in your hands, state the affirmation & then follow with a quick 5-10 minute meditation or relaxation time, allowing yourself to vibrate with your abundance crystals, visualizing & being extremely grateful for the prosperity that is already on its way straight to you!
    • Try to do this 1-2 times every day for 1 week. You’ll be amazed at the changes in you & magical prosperity flow that you’ll set in motion.

    These exercises will allow you to get rid of self limiting beliefs about yourself, setting you you on the path of forming new powerful beliefs.

    It’s so empowering when you discover just how powerful you are! You’ve this amazing ability to consciously & purposefully create exactly what you need in your life and…crystals are handy-dandy tools & supports that make the whole process so much easier + FUN! Simply by creating these new empowering beliefs, you’ll more easily identify stuffs that’s been getting in the way. You’ll also intuitively recognize & vibe with attitudes & energies that attract abundance. How nice!

    When are you ready to heal others?

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, energy work 24 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 Myths Debunked

    Hibiscus Moon cleansing, Crystals, energy work 49 Comments

    My auralite 23 wand & my rose quartz buddy.

    Every interest has its fair share of myths, legends & misconceptions. Right? And I’m in no way trying to say my way is the only way or the right way but just giving you some food for thought here with this post. So, ready to do some crystal de-bunking?

    My auralite 23 wand & my rose quartz buddy.

    Now you know I love a good mature intelligent debate that stirs up a little controversy or just makes us THINK. Perhaps even debunks a few myths. I love to stir the pot with a pinch of controversy as long as its all in fun & no one gets their panties up in a wad. Its this sort of thing that gets peeps talking, reveals new info & sometimes I even let go of old beliefs for newer & better ones. I have no probs being flexy like that. No dogmatic buy-ins from me.

    So let’s tawk!
    I would like to discuss the concept of Charging or Programming of stones.

    I often get asked by those new to crystals….

    “I just got some new crystals. How do I cleanse, charge & program them now?”

    Cleansing? Yeah, I’m all for that. I feel we may (or may not) need to reset the base resonant frequency of the crystals, depending on where they’ve been & energies they’ve encountered before we met up with them so why not be safe rather than sorry? Doesn’t hurt the crystal so we might as go ahead & cleanse it just to be safe.
    There are many ways to cleanse your crystals

    • sunlight
    • salt water baths
    • let them site in dry brown rice
    • run under flowing water
    • sit in flower petals
    • cleansing breaths
    • sage smoke smudging

    Some of the above methods are safe for the crystal & others aren’t, depending on many factors. My new favorite method is safe for ALL crystals &  I discuss just how to do that here in this older video of mine:

    So, do we really need to charge up or program our crystals?
    Yes, I touched on this in a recent video but I’d like to dive in a little deeper & open it up for a Crystal Hottie discussion b/c I’m sure there are viewpoints I haven’t looked at this from & many ways to see it.

    I mean if we believe that certain crystals can help with certain things or have a set of certain properties why would they need us to program them? Oh we’re so enchanted by how clever we think we areso now we’re going to tell the crystal what to do for us? Peee-shaw!

    *BTW, I’m purposely pushing buttons here.*

    I feel & teach that crystals have their own sort of pre-programmed properties due to there unique vibratory signature; a result of many things including their elemental make-up & specific environment that Mama Earth chose to cook them up in. I also feel that although this vibration can get temporarily knocked out of whack under very special circumstance, it’s not easy to do & it’s temporary.

    So…again…does a crystal need me to tell it what it’s good at & how to do it? I think not.

    For example, I decide I need to use spirit quartz to help heal some OCD tendencies…do I need to tell the crystal this, program or charge it in some way? Or is it already programmed in its energetic blueprint? I take a simpler more practical approach  & feel the scenario later is the case.

    I really love the whole idea, concept & theory of a crystal energetic blueprint  or morphogenic field as its been coined by its biggest proponent, Rupert Sheldrake. According to this theory, there is a sort of etheric instruction booklet for how certain organisms (crystals are also lumped in here according to Dr. Richard Gerber) will look & behave once fully formed. If you really want to get into this shiz ( & BLOW YOUR MIND) here’s a great vid where Mr. Sheldrake summarizes what this morphogenic field is all about. I really feel that’s what we’re dealing with here with our crystal buds. So, for the most part, I’ll just sit back & allow them to do what they were cosmically programmed to do, thank you very much.

    Although, I do teach in our Advanced Course how to program clear quartz crystals for special cases, this isn’t something that is always necessary & I don’t feel the program will have staying power anyhow so its something that will continually needs to be re-freshed. I’m also backed by science in sticking with quartz on this  due to its particular molecular structure & specific properties.

    Clear quartz

    For the rest of the crystals…I leave it up to Mother Earth to do the programming. I think she’s pretty much got that process down pat.

    So what do you think? I’m a big girl…I can take it! Just keep it mature & respectful please in the comments below.

    How to Use a Pendulum to Find Anything

    Hibiscus Moon divination, energy work 19 Comments

    Find What You’re Looking For…Using a Pendulum
    I’m often asked how one can go about using a crystal pendulum to find a lost object. (Now, it doesn’t have to be a crystal pendulum…it can be any pendulous object at all in fact).

    Pendulums & other dowsing objects, like dowsing rods (L rods or Y rods), have been used throughout history to locate objects or resources.

    An 18th century dowser

    I feel & teach my students that a pendulum allows you to tap into what your higher self already KNOWS  so its not the pendulum having all the answers…you have them. The pendulum is just a tool that allows us to access them with more ease.

    BUT… they’ve never been as gorgeous & juicy-looking as they are now!

    a tea infuser pendulum with green aventurine for health

    Now, you do already need to sorta already know your stuff & have a clear idea of what your “yes” & “no” movements are in order to do this accurately. Here’s an oldie but goodie vid I did a few years ago that explains about that:
    How to Use a Pendulum

    You don’t have to be a pendulum expert by any means but you do want to have a good connection with yours & be accustomed to its movements.

    A pendulum is pretty simple, only having 2 parts to it:

  • The “bob” is the part that schwings
  • The “fob” is the part you hold from which it pivots
  • Using a pendulum to find something you’ve lost can be very helpful while also giving you great practice & bonding time with your pendulum! I find the more you use it the better & more accurate your results b/c your connection with is stronger & it can more easily resonate with you (or you with it).
    GAME TIME!
    Its actually pretty fun to do this. Total play-time here.

  • You can draw up a rough map of the space you think your lost object in. It doesn’t need to be fancy-shmancy…just a rough drawing will do.
  • Then simply walk around your space from room to room, asking your pendulum if you’re close or not, hot or cold. Yup, just like the game. For instance, you can go to each room within your home & ask if the lost item is there until you get a “yes”.
  • Then spend time going through each area of that specific room asking if the object is in this or that region until you’ve homed in on it like a heat-seeking missile! This can even be done from a distance! All you need is a map of the space the object is thought to be in & your trusty pendulum.
  • You can be loose with it. There’s no right or wrong way. You can do this either sitting or standing, walking from spot to spot, comfortably holding the pendulum’s chain between your thumb & forefinger ( the pivot point) at a comfortable height that feels right for you. If you’re sitting, then go ahead & rest your elbow on a table for stability. Use whatever hand feels most comfortable for you.

    Just make sure that pendulum is making a connection with you!

    I’ve seen some people making these special pendulum hangers that hold the piece for you but…for me…that’s missing the whole point. That separates me from the pendulum & I do want to make that connection with it. I’m not saying that it’s wrong…it just doesn’t work for me.

    So Happy Pendulum Hunting! May you find what you’re looking for, Sweet Pea!!

    Escape from Stress by Using Crystals for Stress Relief

    Hibiscus Moon anxiety, Crystals, stress relief 4 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.

    Jumbo-tron Crystal

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystals, energy work, grounding 4 Comments

    Hey!

    Back around Christmas time I filmed this video but wanted to post it here now (n case anyone missed it) b/c this vid is a hidden little gem.

    I explains a few common concepts & questions I get asked about quartz points & black tourmaline (2 of my fav. crystals) so you may find it interesting too:

  • Clear quartz is a must-have for your collection. It’s so versatile & can be used for ANY purpose so you’ve got to have 1 of these babies. It’s also a very powerful amplifier! Quartz amplifies any vibrational frequencies, including our own.
  • Black Tourmaline is ULTRA-important to have around, I call it the Big Daddy of grounding. This stone has the unique ability to transmute & neutralize energy & help any being to ground & connect back to Mother Earth.
  • BTW…I call this guy…
    Jumbo-tron!
    [youtube twKuUGtqwiM nolink]

    Many Crystal Blessings to you all!

    P.S. Do you have 2 crystal fav’s? If so, what are they? Please post in the comments below. :)

    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?

    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!

    Getting to Know Your Crystals

    Hibiscus Moon anxiety, Crystals, energy work, meditation 2 Comments

    Oh yes, we read the books & they’re great for telling us what this or that crystal is good for. But as I always teach my students, I find the BEST way to make that connection & know what crystal works BEST for YOU is to do your own researching & work with it.
    Really get to know it.
    How?

    • Carrying it with you
    • Sleeping with it on your bedside or under your pillow
    • Spending some time for a few days in a row meditating with it…seeing what messages you get from it.

    These messages will be personal to you. Very specific.
    What About Books?
    I feel the books tell us what properties & vibrational frequencies that crystal or stone carries for 85% of the population but since each of us is slightly different there will be slight variations in this & that’s why some of use react very differently with a stone than another person. Remember, we (as well as the crystals) are all amazing conductors, receivers & transmitters of energy, each with its own unique energetic blueprint & personal life force.

    Some may shy away from this b/c it takes some time & energy. They’d prefer to just look it up in a book. That’s fine but I also feel that without putting in some time & effort with that stone you won’t be building an energetic bond with it. And let me tell you…the crystals work SO MUCH BETTER when you’ve strengthened that energetic bond.

    Yep, yep, yep. Have you tried it? Well, try it. You’ll see.
    Benefits of Doing the Work
    After working with a stone, you’ll get to know not only its unique physical characteristics (I know my 1 little favorite carnelian tumblie so well that I can pick it out of a bowl of dozens easily) but you’ll also have a better understanding of the specific vibrational frequencies it resonates best with in you.

    No, my baby carnelian isn’t in this bowl. ;)

    I have about a 1/2 dozen stones that I work with most often & that I’ve enjoyed getting to “know” their energy & they’ve gotten to “know” mine in a resonant electromagnetic field kind of way. Its really cool stuffs!
    More Perks!
    By doing this work, you also get some great side benefits. If you haven’t been doing so already, you’ll get to hone your meditation skills  & creating a regular meditation practice. You know…that thing your Dr.’s been telling you to do.

    Yeah, yeah…you’ve heard it before, but let me tell you again b/c enough people aren’t doing it:

    Practicing regular mediation greatly impacts your health.

    They say “they can’t”. Peeee-shaaaaa! You just need practice, the right guidance & a crystal, My Sweets!

    I’m sure you already know that the health benefits of meditation are endless.  But 1 of the most important benefits  is how it releases stress. It will free you up from anxiety, worry + stress. Who doesn’t want to be more happy, calm & relaxed? Adding the crystals into this practice totally amplifies this effect, especially if you use crystals more aligned with calming: rose quartz, blue lace agate, lepidolite, etc. Additionally, crystals make focused meditation easier by giving you a tangible focus object to center you & keep you in the moment.

    So, how you do you get to know your crystals? Have you done a similar practice? Have you not done this at all? Want to declare that you will? Please share it all below in the comments, Sweet Pea! Other Crystal Hotties want to know.

    Run with Glitter in Your Hands (not scissors!),

    It’s not for everybody

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, energy work, love 60 Comments

    Another uncomfy blog post for me, this one. But I’m gonna write it anyway.

    So, this world of being a lightworker…it’s not meant for everyone.

    And there’s no judgment on my part on you if you’re not cut out for it yourself & I’m certainly not perfect on this path.

    DISCLAIMER: I’m taking a risk here again…but I feel it needs to be addressed. I am not looking to start a firestorm here at all but just state my opinion. It doesn’t mean that my opinion is the best 1 or the only 1, its just mine, that’s all.

    PLEASE NOTE: Flaming will not be tolerated here. This is a negativity-free zone. (Although I enjoy a healthy & mature debate be forewarned that any nasty, negative or demeaning comments here on MY BLOG will be promptly deleted so don’t waste your energy…go post it on your own blog.)
    Are You Cut Out To Be a Lightworker?
    If you don’t have a good handle or control over your emotions, over checking yourself before you react then…you may not be ready to go out there & be a teacher, be a healer, spread light. I feel that you need to remember to be in heart center as much as you possibly can.♥

    I was recently reminded of this quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. (a true light worker):

    “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

    The sentiment & the point behind that quote is so needed in today’s world & more people need to learn this & I need to remember it more often.

    So, if someone’s doing something that you absolutely detest, that you abhor, that you spend your time & energy trying to get rid of it…it’s a cause that you champion & you throw money at it & you donate time to it…because you really can’t stand it: you know…like children in the sex slave industry or dolphins being abused & forced to perform in shows and, and, and…my goodness it can go on & on & on….HOW DO YOU REACT TOWARDS THEM?

    Some of us get extremely passionate about things like that. Rightly so! And it’s great & wonderful & needed to be passionate about it, because we need people like you to be passionate about it, in order to get everybody aware, then riled up & get rid of it!

    But if you’re going to be passionate & hateful…full of anger about it: what do you think you’re going to do to the people that are making you angry, the people that are doing things that you feel are wrong, that are making this hate swell up in you?
    You’re going to amplify it
    Hate will beget more hate.

    Anger will beget more anger.

    You getting dark about it is going to get them darker about it. You’re not going to get them to learn anything! See your side? Now, you’ve blinded them! What’s worse? You’re not going to change anything. You’re just putting more anger into the world.

    Now, think about it: if you’re able to, have the wisdom & control to suppress that anger & that hate & approach it with love…as passionate as you are about that topic, whatever it is…

    The person that’s causing that anger to develop inside you might actually listen. They might learn something from you & the seed of a change in perspective might get planted.

    I feel that’s the best way. That’s your best bet in getting them to listen & to learn & to change things for the better.

    Like I said before, I am not perfect in this, but it’s something I strive for & that I am aware of.

    Some of you don’t agree with this at all. And that’s OK. Some may even get mad at me for saying it. (But please don’t get angry here as this is my home & keep it very clean).

    So now, think about how it would be if you were to approach that person or the topic in general..that person or topic that is doing the wrong towards that thing that you’re passionate about…but approach it with love.

    Love will change things, Sweet Pea.
    Take Responsibility
    So in being a lightworker…this is a quote from Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor that I feel is so appropriate for us to remember:

    “Please take responsibility for the energy you bring into this space.”

    This is on my wall in front of me right now. This message is literally in my face today in many ways. It’s our mantra here @ HMCA & we take it very seriously. ❤
    I take that quote a little further & say “Please be responsible for the energy you bring into any transaction“. Here, at the Academy we take that statement very seriously. Its even in our Code of Ethics as Crystal Healers that we agree to abide by.

    And a transaction is not just about money. Its about transacting energy. It’s about interacting with other people, with another being. Any interaction:

    • coming into a space
    • speaking with someone
    • exchanging services
    • exchanging a look
    • exchanging a book. (Is this starting to sound like Dr. Seuss?)

    But, please be responsible for the energy you bring into a transaction of any sort.

    Not everybody gets to graduate as a Certified Crystal Healer just because they enrolled in the course. Just like in a University that has any integrity (& a lot of them are losing that these days), if you don’t uphold the values & principles of that University, or you don’t get the grades that you need, you show poor behavior, poor character; you’re not going to graduate from that institution. And rightly so. Because where would the integrity go while the other people that have graduated & earned a degree from that University did do all to uphold that integrity? The clout that that degree carries, the expectations behind it would be completely absent if anybody who paid the bill got to graduate. How unethical would that be? It would cheapen it for everybody & everyone would know that the diploma was meaningless. It would be a joke if you showed up with a degree from Yale if everybody could get one!

    So, I feel there should be accountability, integrity & showing the good example with institutions that a lightworker graduates from. That’s just how I feel. And I feel confident in saying that our Certified Crystal Healers feel the same way. They feel very strongly & very proud about the certification they received because of that.
    90 Seconds to Happiness
    No, this isn’t some middle school make-out game! Ha!

    So, something’s got you upset & you’re about to exchange words with someone – & I recently learned this…my beloved Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor says to “Take 90 seconds” – she calls it “90 Seconds to Happiness”. You take 90 seconds to process before you react. This gives time for your “anger hormones” that auto-trigger you to flow through your system & dissipate. The key is to REMEMBER to do it…that’s the hard part. The other part is easy, right?

    I then recommend (if you can remember…and boy do I try) ask yourself, “Am I coming from heart center? Is this reaction coming from a place of compassion & understanding?” – Some of you like to call it Christ Consciousness. “Is this reaction going to allow for the greatest good for all involved? Is this reaction having nothing to do with the person or being I’m about to react with?“Could it be something else is going on causing you to react in an inappropriate way to this situation?

    For instance, you’re a lightworker, teacher or healer & you’re about to work with a client or facilitate a circle & you’re reacting to something that happened previously or has triggered something; has nothing to do with this person. Check that energy at the door! You must be able to do this.

    I feel that if you don’t have the ability to do that on a regular basis, not every single time, but on a regular basis (70% of the time) then you need to work on that before you work on others. Has someone ever warned you, “Hey, you know, you’re being a little negative, or over-reacting, can we check that?” Does that just make you more angry? Very defensive & you have no control over that? Then, you may not be ready to do this work.

    And I’m sorry if this offends you, and I’m sorry if this pushes your buttons and I’m sorry if this triggers you. But, if it does, there’s something to look at there.

    I feel we do need to have control of these emotions about 70% of the time if you really want to do this work. No, it’s not for everybody. And that’s OK.
    We all need to work on this
    And for some reason, this is harder to do with those we feel most comfy with. Boy, do I know that! With those we’re more guarded with we simply behave better. Yeah, I’m pointing the finger at myself. Some are in better control & don’t have to work as hard. I strive for that & am working on it everyday.

    So, how often is this your issue? Do you have a lot of conflicts with a lot of different people, often? You know, is there a lot of conflict going on between you & most of the people in your life? Then maybe we need to look within.

    You can’t change all those people. Yeah, they might be difficult. You can’t do a single thing to change them.

    The only thing you can change is you & your choices & your reactions. That’s the only thing you have power over.

    No, we’re not all cut out to do this. It’s not for everybody. But I do think that everybody has it within them to change that….IF THEY WANT TO.

    Please do feel free to share your stories, comments & respectful opinions below. I want to hear what you think & so do others, Lima Bean!

    Low Energy, Low Motivation Remedy: Crystal Grid
    OK, I need to get off of the ‘puter and get motivated to take a shower and get on with my day. I took my carnelian pendant off and my energy is back down again. Sheesh! Not sure what is going on. So I’ll be carrying a large carnelian stone with me today and hope that infuses me with energy to stay! Then again, I read somewhere that this may be part of my birthday cycle. That I will stay unmotivated until after my birthday when my energy will be at its peak again. I hope this is the case. I usually don’t feel this lazy!
     
    This is how I ended up remedying the situation. Crystal Grid to the rescue!
