What are the Best Crystals For Aquarius?

So  it’s that time of year for you Crystal Hottie Aquarians to celebrate Life!
Let’s Talk about a Crystal for Aquarians

I am not claiming that I am an astrology expert. At all.

I know about my own sign and I follow it and do see a lot of the alignments in it. But that’s it.

So why am I giving astrological advice here at all?

Well, I get the astrological/crystal correspondence question quite often so I thought I’d start doing a series of these videos.

The person who I follow along with when it comes to crystals-astrology-alignments is Edgar Casey.

A while ago he came up with certain crystal alignments that went along with astrological signs. In fact, I learned that info from this here book:

Please don’t ask me about commercial “birthstones” b/c most of that info comes from various gemological societies for the purpose of selling gemstones. Although, some are reported to have come from ancient teachings, I don’t know which have & which have not. But if you do know of a source for that info, please let me know about it!! I see a lot more sense in what Edgar Casey did with his astrological alignments than the usual birth stones we hear about.

Edgar Casey recommended Garnet for Aquarians

Now there are several different types of garnet but the one that I see most often recommended that kind of seems to make most sense to me is Almandine Garnet. And, it’s a gorgeous deep, deep, deep red stone; usually has no transparency in it; looks almost black! Staring into a larger piece, with the sunlight gleaming off of it, I think it looks like a glittering dazzling deep burgundy galaxy forming & organizing.

When almandines are tumbled, they look like black cherries. Just Beautiful!

A natural (yet polished) almandine garnet dodecahedron expressing its inherent sacred geometry!

Aquarius’ date range is from January 20th – February 18th. It’s a water sign. After looking over the personality traits that align with Aquarians, I feel like the reason why Edgar Casey chose garnet is because it’s a root chakra stone & its quite grounding.

It’s also a stone all about strength + security.

AND about balancing that root chakra.

Mr. Cayce most likely chose this stone to provide a balancing effect for Aquarians, helping to counter-balance that water sign up with some earth element.

Garnet is an aluminum silicate & it’s relatively hard on the Mohs Hardness Scale; anywhere between a 6.5-7.5. So you can find lots of garnet jewelry pieces making it very convenient to wear.

Do  you have other stones that you prefer to work with  as an Aquarian or for Aquarians that you know?  Please post it in the comments below.

Grounding Tips for Balance in a High Flying World

Hibiscus Moon earthing, grounding 9 Comments

Video thumbnail for youtube video Grounding tips to Get you Rooted - Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy | Crystal Healing | Crystal Healer | Crystal Therapy | Certified Crystal Healer | Crystal Grids | Crystal Healing Course

This Crystal Q&A question comes from Geert in Belgium (Can I just take a moment to gush about our worldwide sparkly community?! I’m so grateful to have our HMCA Certified Crystal Healers now in 10 different countries around the world! (Find one near you!)

Sharing the love & knowledge of crystal healing, that’s what it’s all about & I’m so freakin’ happy that we’re on this path together :).  Thank You Sparkle Gems!

BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. Crystals should be used as a compliment to & not as a replacement for regular medical care & consultations. Let me also warn you that this is a link-rich post. I have lots of good resources here to refer you to. ALL of the products that I recommend are products that I have personally used & HIGHLY recommend. Some of the links below are affiliate links that will earn me a commission if you purchase through them, but you can certainly purchase through a different link. Just wanted you to know that I wouldn’t have them here if I didn’t totally believe in them.

So, Geert asks:

“When I ground, but my body is not technically connected to the ground, is this OK? Will we still receive the benefits of grounding when we are on the 10th floor of a building, or on a train, or on a plane?”

Watch this vid for my answer to Geert’s question…
 Grounding Tips for Balance in a High Flying World

 

Grounding is definitely a good idea & a wonderful practice in the world of energetic healing & crystal healing:

We need to ground to stay balanced, so that we don’t get depleted w/ an electron deficiency!!! In today’s fast paced electro savvy world, we’re surrounded by positively charged ions & are mostly insulated & disconnected from the healing effect of Mama Earth. In order to stay balanced, the best thing to do is have skin to earth contact, picking up the earth’s natural plethora of negative ions.

Because of those great chuck taylors, strappy sandals, or fancy boots you’re  kickin’, you’re  feet don’t get to touch the earth & accumulate the negative ions that our great planet provides aplenty.  Really all you need to do to ground is walk around barefoot on the Earth … (I recommend doing this as much as possible).

If you wanna learn more about grounding with the earth’s energy (earthing), there’s a whole book about this that I highly recommend:

But, if you’re an urban Crystal Hottie, or you live in a cold climate, well it’s probably not really that practical to go barefoot very often.  Luckily,  we can use substitutes for our practical needs (love me some practical answers).
Crystals to the rescue!

What about when you’re off the ground & you’re actually physically disconnected from the earth?

  • Use crystals in your meditation, grab that black tourmaline,  focus your intention and visualize rooting and grounding into Mother Earth.
  • For travel, I  have another blog post on that right here on Crystals & Travel which includes my special mojo kit for travel.
  • Here’s that other video I referred to on Crystals for Grounding.
  • When traveling in a train or an airplane, you need to set a strong intention during the flight & take extra special care after the flight;
  • Carry a hematite stone & use it to help balance your electromagnetic field & alleviate jet lag.
  • Also take your shoes off during the flight (and rub your tootsies w/ the hematite).

Natural hematite tumbled stones
BEWARE & Combat Radiation After a Flight
What? Radiation on an airplane?

Yes, I know from my last post on this topic that this is shocking news to many. Yep, flying the “friendly” skies gives as much as 1,000 times the radiation of those airport body scanners everyone is yammering on about. It’s not actually the airplane doing this but our closer proximity to the Sun. Dr. Mercola, natural health expert explains:

“Nearly everyone forgets that when you fly, there is also ionizing radiation exposure. In fact, on a typical transcontinental flight at 30,000 feet you will be exposed to 20 microsieverts of radiation. That is 1,000 times the dose you receive from the scanner.”

So what to do about that?

1. Load up on anti-oxidants before, during & after your flight. Both in supplement form and naturally through your food: blueberries, leafy greens, colloidal silver

This is the kind we use in our household. Please consult with your own doctor on when & how much to take.

 

2. Take an Crystal Anti-Radiation Mineral Bath as quickly as you can after the flight. Ingredients:

  • If you have access to a specimen of colemanite (used just for this purpose b/c it has a low hardness and the frequent baths will eventually cause it to lose its luster); Ready for my Radiation Detox Bath!

    colemanite is boron-based, thereby accepting & ionizing radiation

  • 1 hematite (use a polished one or it will rust)
  • 1 cup of plain epsom salts
  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • 1 cup high quality Himalayan Salt
  • 3-4 Tbsp of Sonne’s Detoxification No 7- contains bentonite (mineral-rich volcanic clay), soaks up yuckies, like radiation & helps your body recover quickly

 

My large Colemanite.

3. Fly at night. No Sun. Genius, right?!! Now those red-eye flights don’t sound so bad.

Oh…here’s that great Grounding Alternative Kit created by the authors of the book; Earthing that I mentioned in the vid:

Hope this helps answer your questions on using crystals to support you while traveling & how to help stay grounded.

Do you have a special crystal that you have to have with you when you travel or if you live in a high-rise? Or a special routine that you do in order to stay grounded & healthy when you’re jet setting? Please share that in the comments below. 

Crystal Blessings!

What Mom Never Told You About Autoimmune Diseases, Lupus, Fibromyalgia

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, healing, stress relief 15 Comments

Autoimmune Diseases, Lupus, Fibromyalgia

…or maybe you’re Mom is really on her game when it comes to autoimmune diseases, lupus, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. & DID tell you about this stuff! But with these dis-eases on the rise…I think its time to discuss it here on my blog.

WebMD.com very generally sums up an autoimmune dis-ease like this:

general, lingering symptoms, means your immune system is attacking healthy tissue.

BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. Crystals should be used as a compliment to & not as a replacement for regular medical care & consultations. Let me also warn you that this is a link-rich post. I have lots of good resources here to refer you to. ALL of the products that I recommend are products that I have personally used & HIGHLY recommend. Some of the links below are affiliate links that will earn me a commission if you purchase through them, but you can certainly purchase through a different link. Just wanted you to know that I wouldn’t have them here if I didn’t totally believe in them. :)

OK, let’s get on with it.

Like I said, it seems that crystal-related questions about these auto-immune illnesses or dis-eases is on the up-tick for me. In fact…Dr. Mercola also notices the trend, stating:
Asthma, hay fever, eczema, food allergies, lupus, multiple sclerosis and other immune- mediated afflictions are all on the rise.

According to some estimates, allergies and diseases of the immune system have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled in the last few decades, with some studies indicating that more than half of the U.S. population has at least one clinically diagnosable allergy.
I have several theories on why that is. But I digress…

So let’s get to addressing these various issues.

Bare in mind that I don’t usually rely on crystal healing as a stand-alone treatment, but as a handy-dandy & quite effective compliment. I feel strongly that every aspect of our health can benefit from a multi-layered approach & not rely on 1 method alone. Just as with music, several harmonics (vibrational frequencies of varying kinds) all resonating together, is found to be very pleasing…on many different levels. :)
Here’s the common Q:
I have some clients or people I know with various autoimmune dis-eases or illnesses such as allergies, lupus, fibromyalgia &  Multiple Sclerosis. I’m wondering what crystals or treatments would be most beneficial?

*Before I give my answer here I, again, want to be very clear & drive a few points home regarding looking for the “Magic Pill” in a crystal-cure. So you can click on this here link or watch the intro to this video…OR BOTH!*

Here’s my A:
Crystals can really enhance an overall holistic approach to treating any auto-immune dis-ease, symptoms or illness. You can also easily merge them with other therapies. For instance:

  • Dr. Mercola recommends allowing yourself to get DIRTY! Quit all this germ-o-phobia. And I throw in Earthing along with this. Get connected back to nature, get some dirt under your finger & toenails & quit using Purell every other second. I use grounding crystals along with my Earthing techniques & this has been very beneficial to my students & clients. In fact, I’ve often referred to my friend & doctor, Dr. Koniver’s Free Earthing eBook to introduce peeps to this whole concept.
Doing some grounding work with my Grounding Crystals. :)
  • There is usually some inflammation going on along with these dis-eases. Inflammation can be decreased when working with larimar & blue chalcedony. You can mix some anti-inflammatory herbs in with this: boswellia & willow bark. How about a gem elixir tea? Both of these stones are non-toxic so safe to create a gem elixir tea with. :)
  • Regular use of a Biomat has been found to benefit the treatment of chronic pain & autoimmune conditions, including but not limited to neuropathy, fibromyalgia, back pain, Lyme disease & arthritis. Yes, these mats are expensive, but many times a professional Crystal Healer will have 1 on hand that you can book some time with, making it much more affordable. Ask around. You’ll so ENJOY your time on a mat!
  • Thyme, Eucalyptus & Bergamot are just a few essential oils that have been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation. I find essential oils & crystals to be perfect partners! How about a mojo bag with 1-3 suggested crystals from this blog post, some boswellia herb & 5-10 drops of essential oil of choice to carry around, or keep in the car, at work & in your sleeping pillow? Or use these oil in an oil burner while conducting a crystal healing session for a client or if you’re the client, ask your Certified Crystal Healer to use these in your treatment.
  • And of course, sufficient sleep, stress reduction techniques, exercise & diet are all a MUST.

Specific Recommendations
Now, here are some stone prescriptions to use for specific illnesses.

Again, keep in mind, this is in conjunction with a sound holistic health plan. You can use these stones in a body layout during a crystal healing session. (You can find a practitioner near you & request that they use these stones in your treatment.) *Hey! The stress relief that you’ll experience from a session alone will start you on a positive path of healing*. You can also choose to meditate with these stones, create a mojo bag to carry with you, create a crystal grid…I could go on & on here but let me try to keep it somewhat simple for the sake of this post:

  • Multiple Sclerosis – I like to recommend working with natrolite, eudialyte, astrophyllite & green jade. A combo of 3 of those would be great.
  • Lupus – My strong recommendations are: honey calcite, titanium quartz & silver. Now the silver can be in jewelry mineral form (not many of us are carrying chunks or bars around) or you can actually ingest it as colloidal silver (please do your own research on this, but even Dr. Oz is on board, dude!)
This is the kind we use in our household. Please consult with your own doctor on when & how much to take.
  • Fibromyalgia – friend & highly respected fellow crystal author, Phillip Permutt suggests this combo: abalone shell, amethyst, selenite & rutilated quartz & again, my students & clients have found it to be very effective. I also find that honey calcite is very effective. Choose a combo of 3 for best results.

A Few Words From Those Who Know the Power of  Crystals

If you know someone who is suffering from some sort of auto-immune dis-ease, how about making them a little mojo bag of crystals or make them up a tea blend & include 1 tumbled stone mentioned here or share this blog post with them, I know they will appreciate it! And if you have some remedies of your own, please do share them below!

Healthy Crystal Blessings!

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!

    How Good 2012 Was To Me

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, dreaming, energy work, gratefullness 10 Comments

    How Good 2012 Was To Me

    How Was 2012?

    Yes, I’d say 2012 was pretty darned good to me! Major shifting happened. The most notable shift was that I left my full time position as a science department chair to take my sacred crystal biz full time! The next major shift was that the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy grew by leaps & bounds with people getting certified as Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healers all over the world!

    Did I leave that all to fate & what was in the cards for me? HELL TO THE NO!

    I realized that creating a sacred biz like this 1 would require some out of the box thinking, some discipline & ambition (I’m a Capricorn so I’ve got plenty o’ that!), some risk & top that off with BIG POWERFUL DREAMING! Then I got really clear on what my goals were last Winter Solstice during my crystal meditation time. Then I planned my heart out, surrounded myself with super knowledgeable & helpful people, then got to manifestation with all the crystal mojo know-how that I have with crystal grids, mojo bags, meditations, gem elixirs…did it all! Oh yes~! Here’s the all important key:

    Bringing in the powerful metaphysical mojo gave this whole game plan just the right amount of ooomph! It gave me the energy & willpower I needed to roll up my sleeves & do the work along with that special something that made it all come true. Working the crystal mojo along side my disciplined hard work was the key to taking all the effort a few octaves higher & having it go GANGBUSTERS!!

    Yeah. Some think that doing a crystal grid is enough. Build it, sit back, relax & they will come. I feel that you need to put your energy & effort into it too, making simple shifts, baby steps or GIANT LEAPS, each & every day towards your dream. That’s just as important as the spiritual work. So start taking the necessary steps to move towards your goal & you’ll start seeing amazing things happening, circumstances easily falling into place, the right people will begin to appear…it all comes together, Jelly Bean.

    I also remember to be ever so grateful for all this everyday. Gratitude is a big part of it.

    And I’m very grateful for what is yet to come! Wooooohoooo! Bring it!

    Metaphysical Support

    In addition, the spiritual metaphysical stuffs have not only given my dreams the boost they needed but they helped to support me…and continue to do so. Yeah,  all this manifesting is hard work & it takes a lot out of you (for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction…thank you Sir Newton!) I need to constantly remember to give myself spiritual support & nourishment. In fact, I feel myself slipping a bit on this as of late. My plan is to get more grounding time in with both crystals & meditation & the great outdoors.

    So, yeah….all of this WORKED! BIG TIME. And I LOVE what I do. I live my bliss daily as a Crystal Healing teacher.

    So what are you dreaming up for 2013, Lima Bean? Do you already live your dream or do you just know you’re on the brink of something HUGE?

    How To Find And Do Work You Love

    DON’T pray, hope & then wait to see if 2013 is going to be a great year…get in there, start doing the work & MAKE IT SO!

    Do you have some BIG plans for the New Year? Resolutions you’re afraid you won’t stick with? You will if you put the prep time into it (& crystal mojo will certainly help!!) If you know what your 2013 dream is, hold yourself accountable…post it below! Take the 1st step, My Sweets!

    The Crystal Healer Interviews

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work, gratefullness, spirituality 8 Comments

    Today, I bring to you a Crystal Healer Reflection from one of our newest Certified Crystal Healers, Jill Bloomer. She is such a sweet & GORGEOUS soul. I hope you thoroughly enjoy reading this post as much as I did! Here’s Jill!!:
    Crystal Healer Reflection

    On March 19, 2011, late at night, I sat outside on my patio contemplating the question that plagues many people.

    “Who am I, what am I doing here?” 

    Although nothing was truly “wrong” in my life, I began to feel despondent and depressed as I pondered my purpose on earth.  Yes, I was a good mother, blessed with four incredible children.  Yes, I had a loving marriage and big-time career. Why did I feel like something was missing?

     Frustrated, I leaned my head back on my patio chair, and my eyes fixed upon the biggest, brightest full moon I had ever seen in my life. For reasons unknown at the time, my heart started to pound and tears began to stream down my cheeks.  I reached for my smart phone and googled “why is the moon so big”.   I found the answer; it was called a “super moon”.  The moon was closer to the earth due to its oval shaped orbit than it had been in 20 years.  It was a truly awe-inspiring sight.

    One google search about the moon lead to another, and before I knew it I was fully engrossed in reading about Moon Goddesses, Wicca, witchcraft, and a bevy of other topics that I was raised to believe were forbidden and taboo.  It was only a few days until I dedicated myself to a spiritual path centered on finding this mysterious Goddess whom I had never known before, but who intrigued me so deeply.

    The next few weeks for me were spent reading articles and watching videos about anything that I could find related to Goddess worship.  I eventually found my way to a you tube channel called phanie12 . In her videos, a faceless woman with a kind and cheerful voice taught me everything I wanted to know about how crystals and gemstones could heal, manifest, and inspire.  I bought my very first crystal (a small citrine point), and when I first held it in my hand, I knew I held something very powerful.

    I came to know phanie12 as Hibiscus Moon, and I began visiting her website and reading about her Certified Crystal Healer Course.  Oh what a pipe dream! I could never do anything like that! Or could I?

    After much prayer, manifesting, and self-convincing, I finally enrolled in Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy to become a Certified Crystal Healer.  As I am finishing the courses and the prescribed work, I almost cannot believe that my “pipe dream” is a reality.  The answer to the question “why am I here on this earth?” is very clear to me now.

    I am here to help others to be healed.

    However, this is not the end of my journey by any means.  In order to be a successful healer, I must continue to heal myself- physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I must continue on my path of learning, for this is not a journey with a final destination, but a never-ending path of self-development, discipline, and growth.  Finally, I am on my way!

    Feelin’ “Yuck & Stuck”? Need to Ground?

    Hibiscus Moon anxiety, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work, science 43 Comments

    Feelin’ “Yuck & Stuck”? Need to Ground?

    Feelin’ tired, floaty, dizzy, spaced out, uncoordinated, lethargic? Feel there’s an energy shift going on?

    So many of you have been telling me about these symptoms that I just had to write this post. There are things we can do, Sweet Pea!

    But 1st…the boring disclaimer… (Crystal healing & therapy should be used with the understanding that it is part of a holistic treatment plan. It’s not meant to take the place of standard medical or psychological treatment, but to accompany & work alongside. The information contained herein is metaphysical in nature & does not claim to heal or cure.) OK, got that outta the way. Besides, you have the power within you to cure yourself of ANYTHING! And we can use crystals as a tool, guide & support. :)

    So, in doing my science-y yet esoteric research & in teaching many Crystalline Cohorts all around our beloved planet, I think I’ve stumbled on to something pretty profound here, My Sweets! Energy shifts ABOUND! There are many reasons why we’re feeling “yuck & stuck”.
    Just a Wee Bit O’ Science & Possible Reasons for the Energy Shift

  • Once every 26,000 years our Mother Earth’s wobbles on her axis. Some say when this happens we get an influx of energy from the central galactic bulge. Jury’s still out on that one as I continue to look for sound evidence (I do  have some but need more for my liking).
  • Then we have some evidence that this wobble & extra pounding of energy may be due to a possible dwarf star twin that our Sun has out there!!
  • In 2010, astronomers confirmed that 2 huge bubbles that emit gamma rays (the most energetic forms of light [or information] that we know of!!) have been discovered ballooning from the center of the Milky Way galaxy. And you might think that was a long time ago. A few years in space isn’t nearly enough time to dissipate such an event. Those babies will be there a while!:
  • Artist depiction of our Milky Way Galaxy, copyright NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center taken with the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope

    Astrophysicist David Spergel, stated, “what we see here are these enormous structures … [that] suggest the presence of an enormous energetic event in the center of our galaxy.” OK, so does this add yet another layer to that influx of energy we’re receiving right now? I assume, yes.

    4. In addition to all of this, I also think the “yuck & stuck” may be due to all the huge Coronal Mass Ejections we’ve been getting from the Sun recently.  Massive energy there!! CME’s are ejections of solar wind with charged atoms & plasma from our Sun. Amazing stuffs to a geek like myself! These effect us & the entire Solar System in all sorts of ways. Check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronal_mass_ejection Here’s some more info on CME’s you may appreciate: http://www.naturalnews.com/032045_solar_flares_Earth.html Every 11 years we cycle into a maximum of this CME activity, we’re heading into a max. now. That means more flares will be coming our way, Crystal Hotties. But we’ve done all this before, nothing we can’t handle. You can learn more about the recent activity here:

    Could the enormous & more numerous CME’s be happening due to the 26,000 cycle or the gamma ray balloons? Or is our Sun simply excited to see its twin again? Maybe. I can’t say, but I think there’s a connection here somewhere. All of these are possibilities.

    Yeah, this is getting a little geeky. I have a tendency to do that. :P No apologies. I fully embrace my GEEKI-NESS!

    All of these events are “radiation events” (light, information). So, any of this may be the reason why we have long periods of time where species remain largely unchanged & then BAM! Mass extinctions as well as many new species come on the scene. Energetic shifting of DNA? Scientists do feel this is due to rapid cosmic radiation events….which may be the reason for our “Yuck & Stuck”.

    BTW, I always teach that energy is neutral. So this energy influx is not bad or good. It has no intentions whatsoever. Its how WE perceive energy that causes it to  manifest certain realities for us. So we if we choose to, we can harness this extra energy burst & use it to our benefit…if we so choose. You do have that power.
    Mother Earth:: Giant Crystal Battery
    Our Mama Earth battery charges up with the radiation from the Sun & lightning happening all around our planet all the time. She also holds a nice grounding iron crystal(s) within her core. Pretty cool, huh?

    Now, think of your body, its mostly water + minerals = excellent conductor of electricity (electrons)!! You’re actually a human battery yourself.

    The surface of our planet is covered in free electrons, which are very attracted to us (water + minerals)..if we allow them to be. Problem is, we’re usually well insulated from these free electrons with our rubber soled shoes & carpeted or tiled floors so there’s very little if any direct contact happening & we’re depriving ourselves from Mother Earth’s balancing restorative energies.

    Ancient civilizations were (are) very aware of all of this & knew to monitor the cycles & to stay closely connected to the planet. Being closely in-tune allows us to regulate many bodily functions & feel plugged in. GROUNDED…dissipating any excess energy to the ground.

    Our body’s various vibration frequency can move our body out of our dominant oscillary rate very easily when we experience stress, which we are doing constantly, especially since we are not regularly connecting with Mother Earth to re-balance. Vibrational healing (like crystal healing) oscillates & entrains our  body back to its dominant osciallry rate & helps it to entrain with a more beneficial frequency. You can also go to specific crystals to entrain more grounding.

    Your body recognizes what it needs & if you offer it the tools, your body will heal itself. You’ll get out of “yuck & stuc k”.
    Crystal & Other Recommendations
    I highly recommend keeping grounded & using crystals to do that:

    • Black tourmaline is 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!
    • Do lots of Earthing (check out that book on Amazon!) 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 attention.

    The whole family getting in on it!

     

    teeeheee!

     

    Dr. Brian Clement is the medical director of the Hippocrates Health Institute here in West Palm Beach, FL. He agrees that grounding may help people who are hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields. Dr. Clement also states (like I always do!) that electronic EMF is a problem for us.
    Quoted from Dr. Mercola’s site: “[W]e have about four people a year come in here that we call “universal conductors,” he says. “That’s the medical term for it. Dr. Ray, down in Texas, gave it that term. These people are so hypersensitive that they have literally taken the sheathing off their nerves. It’s like having a wire that doesn’t have a covering on it, and you touch it with a pin. Every time they feel the frequency that you and I do not feel, it hits directly to the nerve and creates this biological reaction, this bio-frequency.”
    Dr. Clement uses a form of nutritional grounding. There are many ways to ground. So explore & do some research on your own.

    O-M-G! I could keep writing about this forever…but alas, all my extra energy & writing is going into an online class I’ll be teaching on this eventually.

    People need to know. We’re ll OK, we’re not going nuts & there are ways to make it through, feel better & come out the other side better for it!!

    Now it’s your turn—what’s one successful way you’ve found to get through the “yuck & stuck”?

    How To Lower Your EMF Risks with Crystal Healing

    Powerful Crystals to Help Lower Your EMF Risks
    Hey Sparkly One!

    Have you  noticed over the last few years people have become much more concerned with EMF (electromagnetic frequency) radiation &  now a new possible threat; nuclear radiation in the atmosphere? AKA, EM Pollution.

    Some symptoms of excess EMF radiation are fatigue, joint & muscle pain, decreased attention span, memory loss, difficulty focusing & insomnia. Yuck.
    In my analysis & research I noted these are the same symptoms of being ungrounded! Of feeling Yuck & Stuck!
    Could it be that too much EMF causes us to become ungrounded?

    EM Pollution
    If you’d like to learn more about how to lower your risk and avoid EMF exposure around your house, residual magnetism, static build-up, wireless EMF along with radioactivity, here’s a great recording of an interview with Vicki Warren, the past executive director of the Institute for Bau Biology & Ecology.  Here she talks about all of these things & gives excellent advice on examining your house for EMF dangers! Awesome stuffs!

    I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book. Truly eye-opening! Be informed & get protected:

    In my Creating Sacred Spaces & Self Protection Using Crystals Class we discuss  specific crystals & stones you could use to counteract EMF pollution. Crystals you don’t want to use are any kind of silicate crystals: quartz, lepidolite, etc.

    Why? For the simple reason that they easily slide into resonance with electronics & microwave radiation. That’s what we don’t want. That property is why silicon (what silicates & quartz are made of) is so widely used in technology! It’s an excellent semi-conductor.

    The best stones to use for EMF protection are ferromagnetic (iron containing) stones like lodestone, magnetite, hematite, pyrite.

    BUT, be certain not to have any magnetic stones near your laptop = CERTAIN LAPTOP DEATH due to hard-drive being erased.

    I also like black tourmaline for this (even though its a silicate). The reason I throw that 1 into the hat too is b/c it’s got just the right combo of elements & it has the added yin-benefit of having iron in it. Black tourmaline is known for its ability to transmute & “cleanse” energy & it actually has pyroelectric properties too. But I don’t want to slam too much science into 1 blog post. Since I can’t tell if your eye are glazing over yet, I’ll have to trust that this is enough. ;)

    Another recent favorite for this sort of protection is shungite:

    These are 2 shungite pieces from my crystal grid that surrounds my wifi router.

    Now! Here’s the KICKER that I’ve discovered!! Most of these are the same exact stones many cultures teach to use to ground ourselves!!! How perfecto! Don’t you just love when the ancient knowledge & new dovetails together like that?
    So here are some things you can do; both using stones & otherwise:

    • Make a lodestone (magnetic magnetite) pendulum, spin it through your EMF to strengthen weak areas
    • Place Kernite or Colemanite crystals (just got a SWEET specimen!) in a low dose nuclear radiation area to absorb; these crystals are Boron-based, thereby accepting & ionizing radiation

    • Unplug your bedroom (listen to Warren’s recording above for how’s & why’s)
    • Children should not use cell phones due to their higher susceptibility
    • Reduce your own cell phone use
    • Use a land line whenever possible
    • Reduce or eliminate your use of wireless (you can put it on a timer so at least part of the time its not radiating throughout your house, physical body & auric field). This is a tuffy for me seeing as I live in a busy suburb-y/city where I receive 3 5 wireless signals radiating from my neighbors!
    • Turn your cell phone off when not in use

    I don’t like to fear monger but I feel its good to get this info out there from time to time & remind ourselves to clean up our energy & balance.

    If you have other tips or ideas, please share. We’d love to hear them here! And if you found this post useful or helpful, please share it with others. ♥

    Many Crystal Blessings!

    Crystals to Protect You From the Computer

    Hibiscus Moon cleansing, science 24 Comments

    I’m often asked which crystals are good for protecting against EMR (electromagnetic radiation) & the flicker of the computer screen. I see lots of conflicting advice being given on this so hopefully, we can clear some stuff up here.

    You may be saying to yourself right now…”What’s so bad about EMR?”

    Quick & dirty, short & sweet:…it increases our levels of adrenaline & cortisol, severely decreasing our dopamine levels…in other words: No Bueno! We don’t want that for prolonged periods of time. It ends up being very bad for our overall health.

    Now, I like to back up my crystal advice with scientific reasoning whenever possible.

    And that being said, I also advocate for doing whatever you’re intuitively draw to do first, since that’s what’s going to work best for you.
    My recommendations for specific crystals to help counteract EMR:
    Rule #1 (its my only rule here…just getting dramatic): No silicates (like quartz, lepidolite, fluorite, etc., crystals that contain silicon dioxide SiO2) Why? B/c silicates easily move into resonance with EMR. Its exactly why they’re used in tech. all the time! They don’t call is Silicon Valley for nada. Makes sense, right? Right-o!

    So what crystals should you use?

    I feel the BEST stones are going to be the ones with iron & magnetic properties, aka ferromagnetic stones. They’re great to prop up in an EMR field b/c they help restructure the energy in these areas, making it less harmful to you.
    Good examples of ferromagnetic stones are:

  • lodestone (magnetic magnetite)…CAUTION to not put this 1 too close to your electronics as it can delete some hard drives.
  • hematite (not the fake magnetic kind!)
  • pyrite
  • These stones also happen to be great grounding stones too! I have a whole theory about that & teach about it in my Creating Sacred Space & Self Protection Using Crystals On Demand Class. :)

    BUT, the best thing is to get up & get away from the computer for a bit. Get barefoot & go outside & do some Earthing. So that said….I’m outta here. See ya later Twinkle Toes!

     

     

    P.S. If this sort of thing interests you, I teach about this concept more in depth plus many other topics in that On Demand Class. You’ll really enjoy it!
