Everything You  Wanted to Know About

In the crystal world, there’s no other crystal that embodies “sexy” better than carnelian: pure sexy energy!

Does this sound like you these days?

  • tired & drained? 
  • poor social skills?
  • deny yourself of pleasures?
  • lack of passion, enthusiasm, excitement?
  • lack of creativity?
  • fear of change?
  • frigidity and/or fear of sex?

Then this is the stone for you!

**Watch my vid here for several to-die-for juicy Carnelian specimens!***

Hey! Are you needing a boost of energy?

Need some Sacral Chakra Balancing? Oh, I’ve got just the thing for you today!

Sacral Chakra is all about juicy creativity, creating life, creating art…creating anything at all. 

Putting anything into manifestation-creation mode is all about the Sacral Chakra; very watery, juicy, fertile energy.
And carnelian is our ideal stone to help enhance and/or balance our sacral chakra. It entrains us to the vibrations of physical & mental energy, creation energy!

In fact, if you’re needing energy or vitality of any sort, Carnelian really helps boost that.

It also amplifies our creativity energy; that “take-action energy”. Or if you are just physically tired, you could use a boost of Carnelian energy.

Carnelian is a somewhat translucent, yet vibrantly colored Micro-Crystalline Quartz (aka chalcedony). Click here if you’re not sure how to pronounce that. :)

It’s a quartz (silicon dioxide), but it doesn’t grow in the shape of the usual 6-sided Hexagonal Quartz shape with a point, b/c it’s what we call “Micro Crystalline”, meaning that there are teeny-tiny crystals there, but you can only see them under a microscope.  They’re micro; very little, little, mini mini.

It’s usually a deep succulent orange color, getting its color from iron impurities in the quartz. It’s most often a solid (slightly see-through in spots) orange, but it can also be banded like my GORGEOUS Jumbo Jupiter Polished Madagascar Carnelian Sphere below here. *Yep, go ahead & wipe the drool off yer chin.*

CAUTION…Science Lesson Up Ahead!
I have to tell you about this; the other day somebody said, “Oh you pronounce ‘Silicone’ so funny.  You say ‘Silicon’ instead of ‘Silicone’.”

As a former science dept. chair, I cannot resist this teachable moment!

Silicone and silicon are 2 different versions of silicon, the element.

Silicon dioxide is quartz.  Just to give you a little chemistry lesson; silicon is a pure element; 1 molecule of silicon is made of just 1 atom.  A molecule of quartz has 1 atom of silicon + 2 atoms of oxygen = 3 total atoms in 1 molecule of silicon dioxide (quartz).

Silicone (with the “E”) refers to a synthetic silicon compound not found in nature of 2 silicon atoms + 1 oxygen atom mixed with something else to make it a polymer, so it’s different from silicon. Hence the different pronunciations.

  • Here’s how you pronounce “silicon” (no “E” at the end).
  • Here’s how you pronounce “silicone”.

I know I’ve gone too far here for a crystal healing blog, but I just cannot help myself on certain topics!

Back to Carnelian-Fun-Stuff!

When you see layered colors like in the above stone it may also be referred to as an “agate”… due to that translucent banding.  Someone may wonder, “Well, isn’t this Fire Agate and not Carnelian?”

Yeah, it could be named that way. It’s only just a name. I’d say if it’s mostly orange then I would tell you it’s proper carnelian, but even carnelian in its “purest form”, you usually see a bit of white.  The white is just areas of quartz that did not get the iron inclusions.
This one time…
Let me tell you a quick little carnelian story: I left my fav little carnelian tumbled behind in a bowl of Carnelian at an event that I was hosting.  Eeek!

We were doing a Sacral Chakra Circle, and I brought a whole bunch of carnelian stones to give out to the participants.  I had brought my own personal carnelian stone to charge up some carnelian Gem Elixir water that we were using to make Sacral Chakra Smoothies  & using for various exercises.

My personal stone got mixed up in the bowl with all the other carnelians while someone was helping me clean up & I left this 1 behind at the end of the event.

The next day I realized it was missing. 

I was like “Oh My, I’ve had that one stone for so long. I hope nobody took it.  I hope it is still there!”

I went back & sifted through the bowl & there was a whole bunch of them to look through.  The person there was like,  “You are never going to find yours. Just take any one.”

Oh no.  They didn’t understand. I was like “No, I am going to find mine.  I know my Carnelian!  This specific one.”

I don’t know all my tumbled stones this well, but this specific 1 has certain markings on it & I would know it anywhere.  No matter what!

Here he is…

You may think all tumbled carnelians look the same, but I’d know this little guy out if a pile of thousands in a hot second! 😉

I’d know those specific markings anywhere; result of meditating/working with it often over the years. A trusted friend indeed. #CrystalBonding

Hibiscus Moon Fun, Gem Elixirs 5 Comments

BORING DISCLAIMER TIME: *please read below*

We decided to create a gem-infused smoothie as a superfood meal while listening to some 70’s Teen Heart-throb music on Pandora (think Bay City Rollers, Shaun Cassidy, etc.).

Go ahead & join in…watch part 1 + 2 below…

Part 2

I got so many requests to post the exact ingredients to this smoothie that I promised to eventually preserve this whole event in a blog post here on my website. And here we are! I’m a woman of my word.
So here we are (all ingredients are organic whenever possible):

  • I whip this all up in a NutriBullet
  • fill container 1/2 way w/ supergreens mix (red & green Swiss chard, spinach, arugula, etc.)
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 Tbsp goji berries
  • 1 tsp maca powder

And referring back to the part 2 video from above; for those of you too young to know who “Keith” is (or perhaps busy living it up in a gorgeous glitter amethyst-encrusted cave for the last 40 years or so), I present to you David Cassidy:

Here’s an older video where I explained my PristineHydro Crystal Water system after I had first had it installed. 1 of our smartest investments!:

*You’ll want to jump directly to minute mark 2:12 if you want to skip all the non-related silliness*

And here’s another recipe you can use for good mood & energy boosting:

Crystals for Mercury Retrograde

Hibiscus Moon astronomy, Gem Elixirs, protection, science, stress relief 5 Comments


Ahhh, Mercury Retro. Its become such a popular excuse that I began hearing it from my teenage science students (while I was still teaching science in the classroom) as an excuse for not turning homework! Whaaaa?

Seems the idea has become pretty popular.

Heck! When you’ve found it defined in the Urban Dictionary you know it’s grabbed a hold:

“A three week period in which the planet Mercury appears to be in backwards motion. During this time human beings experience many adverse effects, such as memory loss, loss of time, loss of items, loss of virginity, loss of common sense. As for technology many unexpected glitches occur during this time, such as software crashes and emails getting lost ”

OK…wait…what? “loss of virginity“? *shaking head*…moving on.

Before I get into the crystals, let’s discuss what this all means & where it comes from (except for the “loss of viriginity”…I’m not touching that 1).
First…let’s talk retrogrades

Oh…how I love to talk about space!! Science class in session!!

Retrograde refers to a planetary orbit around the Sun is seemingly going opposite of ours here on Earth. It’s like watching someone riding a merry-go-round from 1 fixed point. If you were just watching them from very far away (& had no idea what a merry-go-round was) it would seem like the person you were watching was traveling forward then backward then forward again.

Now, I can write about this here but really the best way to “get it” is to SEE it & since I don’t have my planetary orbit model here in hand, I’ll let StarWaders show you (works really well for visual minds):

Now Mercury isn’t the only planet to go retrograde. The other planets do it too & affect us as well. Mercury probably is the most well-known b/c it’s so close to the Sun & has the shortest orbit to travel so it ends up zipping round so quickly (hence those little wings on the depictions of the Roman God Mercury) that we end up with about 3 Mercury Retros a year, more than any other planet. No worries…we’ll get to the crystals for Mercury Retrograde soon.

Disclaimer here…I’m no astrologist. That is not my area of expertise at all but I do know the usual associations made with Mercury Retrograde; probably due to its speediness, Mercury is known as the messenger governing over communication of all sorts, which includes technology. This tiny planet is also known to influence travel, merchants, thieves & be a mischievous influence over all those things too.

So when is Mercury Retrograde? I always check here & I make sure to avoid all the items mentioned below (especially when embarking on something new) unless I’ve taken the correct precautionary measures.
There’s also a Mercury Retro  app for that! Heeee!

  • Androids
  • iPhones

The Usual Mercury Retro Warnings to Be Aware of

  • No contracts! This is time that we’re supposed to avoid making any serious plans or agreements of any kind, no important meetings or legally binding documents.
  • Be careful to communicate extra clearly during this time & throw in some extra patience, clarity & attention to detail during this time. Choose your words carefully. If you’re a Type A personality like me, now’s the time to let your Freak Flag Fly! It will benefit you for taking the extra time & energy to check the details.
  • Be extra wary of all technology; emails & texts included. Stuffs seems to get lost, freeze up or just generally go berserk! Take the time to make sure that important stuffs did indeed get through.
  • Make sure you & your other party are interpreting everything clearly…even in face to face convo’s. If you’re reading something more complex than usual & it’s important, make sure to read it over again & then have someone else double-check it for you.
  • Flip it Around
    So all this sounds like a stressful time, doesn’t it? But it really doesn’t have to be at all. In fact, you can a flip your attitude about it onto its head!

    I prefer to take this time to s-l-o-w it down. I try not to take on something HUGE at this time & not to release or launch a brand new program or course. I find this to be a GREAT time to restructure or reorganize something, do some gentle & supportive personal work. Re-Do Time & take your time. Laid back + zen; simply  renew, revamp & redo!

    As I always try to remember to remember myself…the only thing we have control over is our own reaction to whatever may occur. I choose how to respond. My applied energy & the energy of my created environment will entrain the energy within me & that of  the energy of my current situation (& possibly that of the people involved in it too!) So what can we do?
    Crystals for Mercury Retrograde
    Here are some crystals & stones you can work with pre, during & post Mercury Retrograde:

    Emerald – will help smooth communication & organize activities & plans

    emerald on quartz

    Blue lace agate – helps improve clear calm communication

    Blue Lace Agate

    Fluorite – balances thinking, improves concentrations, organizes thoughts; any color variety will work

    green banded fluorite

    Amazonite – harmony in communication

    amazonite (photo credit: Rob Levinsky of

    Aquamarine – enhances clear communication

    Mercury Let-Go Rx
    If you find yourself getting all stressed out by classic Mercury-Retro mishaps, remember to switch gears & use some of these ideas for letting go. If you have these tools ready to go when Mercury comes round to play the mischievous messenger, you’ll be able to think clearly in your zenified state & calmly resolve any possible disruptions or hiccups.

    • Letting Go meditation from
    • Whip up a Mercury Let Go Gem Elixir Spray using an elixir from one of the above mentioned crystals (use a gem chip or 2 in the spray as well) along with a few drops of some relaxing organic essential oils such as lavender or ylang ylang (need a little guidance on how to do that…check out my eKit here)
    • Write an affirmation on a slip of paper  like “This is a time of renewal,  review & revitalization” or “I am calm, cool, clear, & focused” & tuck into a little pouch with a few of the above stones. Mercury Retro Mojo Kit to the RESCUE!!

    So, its OK. You’ve got this, Lima Bean!

    Sparkly Blessings!

    4 Totally Rockin’ Ways to use Crystals for Fear and Anxiety

    Hibiscus Moon anxiety, Crystal Grids, Crystals, Gem Elixirs, healing, love 9 Comments

    Fear & anxiety can be debilitating. I know. So are there actually crystals for fear and anxiety?

    It can not only stop you from being productive but can stop you in your tracks, unable to just do your normal everyday activities & even roll you backwards in life.

    These are some stones you can use along with some techniques I’ve found work very well for me as well as for my students.
    Go-To Crystals for Fear and Anxiety
    Rose Quartz – love is the opposite of fear & this stone embodies the love vibration;  excellent for calming, love, kindness & compassion. If you’ve recently had any fear revolving around emotional drama, fights, chaos, confrontations this stone will truly help to comfort your heart chakra. In addition, it helps you with self love which is great for dispelling fear.

    Blue Lace Agate – this stone is well-known for its centering & calming vibrational frequencies & works really well for reprogramming your thoughts & reactions to calm & positive ones…just what you need when you’re overcome by fear & may not be thinking rationally. A throat chakra stone, blue lace agate allows you to speak your mind calmly & clearly to get you out of those fear-inducing conflicts or situations. Anxiety be gone!

    Black Tourmaline – known for its ability to transmute & “cleanse” energy. So if you’re perceiving energy (the situation) to be negative, this stone is great for bringing it right back to neutral. It’s a powerhouse for that! Here’s a video I did on this:

    Black Tourmaline for Purification

    Chrysocolla – this stone has a very feminine & soothing vibration. It gently calms your heart chakra when its beating with fear. It will also give you more confidence when you’re gripped with fear when having to communicate to others your needs or when you simply need some security in social situations of any sort. Its a great one to keep in your pocket when doing any public speaking. 😉

    Nirvana Quartz – trust will help you to overcome fear & this stone is the 1 to help you with trust while learning to accept & love yourself fully. Here’s a video I did a couple years back on this unique sort of crystal:

    Crystal Healing with Nirvana Quartz

    Fear-Busting Techniques

    • Crystal Meditation – hold 1 of the crystals listed above, 1 in each hand (they don’t have to be the same kind) comfortably while you listen to one of these excellent (& free!) meditations: this one or this one. Let go…you’re going to be fine.
    • Anti-Fear & Anxiety Gem Elixir – create a gem elixir using rose quartz & blue lace agate (my eKit here shows you how to). Then mix these ingredients together:  1 tsp gem elixir, 1tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp organic ground ginger, 1/2 tsp organic raw honey. Chug a glass 3x/day. I tweaked up this recipe to come up with the 1 I’ve given you here after someone suggested something similar, telling me that is an old Indian Standby known for revving up your digestive energy, which in turn, calms down your mind’s energy. Made sense to me!! Plus, scientific research (ooooo, you know I had to throw some of that in here!) has shown that honey balances unstable blood sugar brought on by anxious stress & fear, lemon juice helps to lower your blood pressure & ginger calms the stomach. SNAP!
    • Fear-Chasing Mojo Kit – arm yourself with a little pouch that carries some fear-calming scents like bergamot & lavender (either in the form of an herb, essential oil or both then amplify those vibrational energies by adding 2-3 tumbled stones of the above listed.  This little mix will send calming frequencies to your brain’s fear & anxiety center headquarters molding a new calm reality for you.
    • Calm, Trust & Love Crystal Grid – you can whip up a grid made just for counter-acting fear & anxiety. I suggest using nirvana quartz, rose quartz & chrysocolla just for this purpose. If you need help on how to create & work with a crystal grid, I have a good blog post here or you can check out my book on the subject. 😉 *I gave it some thought here about mentioning so many of my items for sale in this post but I do happen to have several products that can help here & thought about not mentioning them  thinking I might come off as too pushy but then I realized I wouldn’t be doing my part in serving by not telling you about them. And you have a choice….I’ve given you some free or low-cost options here too* So…I also have this Crystal Grids Template Package that includes a Banishing Anxiety Crystal Grid Template. 😉

    Now you should be all set to handle whatever comes your way, Jelly Bean!

    Peace, Rainbows + Crystal Sparkles!
