I have a question for you:
Too many crystals, not enough time?
I sense that this may be starting to become a wee-little problem in our Crystal Hottie community. Some Crystal-Hoarding, perhaps?

Are we in need of a 12 Step Program here? 😉 

Hey! I’m the worst offender! I’m not immune in any way.

So sensing this issue is prevalent in our community, I recently asked this question on my Facebook Page:
 

And here are just a few of the great responses I received that prompted me to write this blog post…
 

So let’s try to figure out what may be going on for some of us:

  • Maybe you just keep acquiring more & more sparkly babies, thinking a bigger collection will make it all click!
  • Maybe you keep telling yourself you don’t yet have the “right combo” of crystals…just yet.
  • Perhaps you simply think you just need ENOUGH TIME! **You’ll get to all that someday.** 😉
  • Or maybe you even think that someday you’ll read enough crystal books & somehow remember what all the thousands of crystals are & what to use them for. *snicker, snicker* Good luck with that 1! It’s a great goal to shoot for, but…fuhget about it!  You’ll never learn what all the crystals are for, what each individual crystal’s properties & characteristics are…b/c there are over 4,500 different minerals & more being discovered all the time!! Ain’t happening, Chick Pea.

I KNOW how this plays out b/c I’ve tried & thought all these things myself!!

Let me tell you a little-bitty secret:

“Someday” usually never comes.

Yep, just as the Creedence Clearwater song lyrics say…

“Well I’m here to tell you now each and every mother’s son, that you better learn it fast, you better learn it young ‘Cause someday never comes…”
Us humans…we’re really good at creating all sorts of excuses that can forever support procrastination. Right?

Let’s get real here, Lima Bean.

How many things have you said “one day” or “Bucket List!” to & actually completed? That ain’t how manifestation works. Someday will always be someday and will never be NOW!

And no judgement here.

If you’ve decided & made peace with the fact that you’re totally OK with simply being a crystal collector & never actually getting intimate with their energy & healing potential….there’s NOTHING wrong with that.

But if you’re intention IS to get energy-intimate, then please KEEP READING!

Action Steps to Learn How to Work with all your Crystals

ACTION STEP 1
Focused Blocks of Sacred Time

Not enough time?

Too busy?

Sorry, but BULLSCHIST!

First, you need to decide that it’s a priority to you. Then you need to make a commitment to your goal so it doesn’t get pushed off to “later”. You’ll always make of your commitments what you put into them. So stop watching TV, get off of social media or watching the negativity news stories on the local news or CNN….I bet you’ll find all sorts of time if you just cut out 1/2 of that shiz.

Still feel like you don’t have enough time?

All you need is a few minutes a day to work with your chosen crystal. Yeah, like 3-4 min. Who doesn’t have a few minutes for something as important as this?

You need to get real with yourself! Is learning about your crystals important enough to you?

If the answer is “YES”, then carve out that time in a weekly calendar. Make it a repeating weekly appointment on your smart phone now. Yep, do it now.

Then make that time sacred. Don’t let any freakin’ thing or anyone get in the way. Treat it like a doctor’s appointment…b/c you know they’ll charge you for that shit if you miss the dang appointment! It should just as important as that.

ACTION STEP 2
Eliminate Crystal Overwhelm

If you’re like me & have a TON O’ CRYSTALS then you may be suffering from Crystal-Overwhelm.

It happens to the best of us. You get paralyzed by all the crystals you see in the shops or all the crystals you’ve amassed for yourself & you have no idea where to begin or which crystal to go to.

So you just freeze & do nada. :/

How to get unfrozen? Just listen to your intuition.

 

THIS IS KEY & what I’m always preaching: Just use your intuition, Crystal Hottie.

If you get quiet & still you’ll notice that you’re naturally attracted to 1 particular crystal (usually 1, but sometimes more) for whatever reason. Maybe it’s aesthetically pleasing to you or you have a deep inner knowing that you’re attracted to that 1 crystal for a very good reason. Don’t ignore that!

Don’t worry about what the books say.

Go with your gut.

You have that feeling for a reason.♥
ACTION STEP 3
Publicly Commit

This step is super-effective.

If you’re comfy with it, social media is great for this!! In fact, social motivation is 1 of the most powerful motivators there is.

Whenever I want to commit to doing anything, I tell my online followers (whether on YouTube, Facebook or Instagram) or my Mastermind group what I’m up to & I ask them to hold me accountable! This way I know that if I don’t check in like I’m supposed to, they’ll be asking me about it.

Totally works like a charm for keeping me motivated to stay on track!

Maybe you don’t want to go quite as public with your intentions, but you can at least let your inner circle know what you’re up to & tell them you need their help on this. Tell them to ask you questions & to ask you about your goal to learn more about your crystals when they see you online or talk to you in person.

Ask for some accountability & you’ll get it!
ACTION STEP  4
Overcome the Fear of Failing at Crystal Healing
I really even hesitate to call the work we do with crystals “crystal “healing” (but cont. to do so b/c so many don’t understand what you’re talking about if you call it anything else).

So; “crystal healing, therapy, energy work”…whatever you want to call it…many think to themselves…
“Who am I to think I can do this? I’m going to fail. It won’t work.”

Wrong.

Because you cannot fail. First of all, bear in mind that when working with crystals, the “healing” taking place is a 2 way street…it goes both ways. You’re simply acting as a conduit for the work to take place, so that takes a lot of the pressure off, right? It usually totally dissipates the fear that so many of us have around this sort of work.

Yes, yes, yes…of course you’ll have to do some work, but if you do the work, you cannot fail. Simply think about who you’re helping, whether it be yourself or someone else, find inspiration in the fact that you are doing good, you’re bringing the light & you’re simply acting as the go-between for the subtle forces to work through you. That’s all. 😉

You can do this. I believe in you.

You have ENDLESS potential!

What To Do Right Now
Review the 4 steps above & right down on your calendar when you’re getting started.

That’s what you need to do right now.

Don’t say you’ll “try” it!

You need to do it. As Master Yoda says…

I have a question for you. Too many crystals, not enough time?

I was wondering if this is a common problem in our crystal-lovin’ community? I recently asked this question on my Facebook Page & got a lot of very interesting answers.

I thought this response from Mary was classic!:

  • Maybe you keep telling yourself you need the perfect sacred space before you can start working with them, or you don’t have the right combo of crystals, or the right crystal books, or enough time.
  • Maybe you’re waiting & waiting  for the perfect blend of magical sparkly ingredients. And maybe you tell yourself that you’ll get to all that someday. I KNOW how this plays out b/c I’ve done it myself!!
  • Or do you even think that someday you’ll finally remember what all the crystals are & what to use them for? Ha! Good luck with that 1. It’s a noble goal, but…forget it. THIS IS KEY & what I’m always preaching: Just use your intuition, Crystal Hottie. Forget about learning all the crystals. You’ll never do that. There are over 4,500 and counting!! That should relieve some overwhelm right there.

Let me tell you a little-bitty secret:

“Someday” usually never comes.

Sometimes, we create all sorts of reasons that can indefinitely support our “putting it off”. C’mon…think about it. How many things have you said “Someday” or “later” to & actually completed?
 

Hey, if you’ve decided you’re totally OK with just collecting crystals & never actually putting them to any use, that’s great. There are many other people in the world who do that & I think its’ wonderful to collect something of such beauty.

 
BUT if you do want to actually get to working with your crystals, learning what they can each do for you as well as others, then how about finally getting to that? 

 

Procrastination. All of us do it & all of us get stuck. And you may not even realize that you’re procrastinating at all. But if you do realize you’re just putting off working with your crystals, and you do really want to realize their full potential & get your motivation going, I have some tips for you:
Action Steps to Finally Learn How to Work with all your Crystals

ACTION STEP 1

Eliminate Crystal Overwhelm. If you’re like me & have a TON O’ CRYSTALS then you may be suffering from Crystal-Overwhelm. It happens to the best of us. All of a sudden you realize you’ve amassed too many stones & crystals & you find yourself paralyzed.  Here’s what you can do: break the task down into chunks of easy steps. One way to do this is to commit to learning to sense & feel the energies of just 1 crystal for 1 entire week. Sit down to meditate with it committing to just 1-5 minutes each day if possible. Yes, 1 minute will be fine. Work with just 1 crystal for just 1 minute/day for 1 week. You can do that. Call that a success. Vow to work with only 1 crystal all week long. Eliminate temptation to do something else. Throughout the week, journal any messages, sensations, visions or special dreams. At the end of the week look over your journal and see if you note a theme. This is how that crystal is resonating for you personally. It may sound simple but it’s POWERFUL STUFFS.

 

ACTION STEP 2
 

Focused Blocks of Sacred Time. Not enough time? You’re too busy? I call BULLSCHIST. First, you need to decide that its important enough to you. Make that time sacred, and don’t let anything or anyone get in the way. In step one all you need is 1 minute/day to work with your crystal. Make the time if it’s important. Stop watching TV, get off of social media, watching the negativity news stories. Yeah, if you cute 1/2 of that stuff out, I bet you’ll find all sorts of time. It’s just about breaking habits, deciding what’s important & making it a priority. Put it on your calendar daily (go…go schedule it on your phone now) and make it happen.

 
ACTION STEP 3
 

Overcome the Fear of Failing at Crystal Healing. I really hesitate to call it “crystal healing” (but cont. to do so b/c so many don’t understand what you’re talking about if you call it anything else). So; “crystal healing, therapy, energy work”…whatever you want to call it, many think to themselves…“Who am I to think I can do this? I’m going to fail. It won’t work.”

I say…you cannot fail. Yes, you’ll have to do some work, but if you do the work, you cannot fail. Simply think about who you’re helping, find inspiration in the people you’re going to help.

And always bear in mind that when working with crystals, the “healing” taking place is a 2 way street…it goes both ways. You’re simply acting as a facilitator, so that takes a lot of the pressure off & diminishes the fear that so many of us have around this. You can do this. I believe in you.

 
ACTION STEP  4
 

Publicly Commit. …this is the MOST powerful. If you’re comfy with it, social media is great for this!! In fact, social motivation is one of the most powerful motivators there is.

When I wanted to commit to doing a daily crystal oracle card reading, I told my YouTube followers that I was going to do this for 7 days in a  row. I knew then that if I didn’t or skipped a day, that they’d be asking me about it. Did that keep me motivated to stay on track? you bet it did! OK, you don’t have to shout it from the rooftops but at least let your inner circle know what you’re doing & tell them you they would really help you out if they asked you about your goal to learn more about your crystals when they see or talk to you. Ask for some accountability.

What To Do Right Now
Review the steps above, and right down on your calendar when you’re getting started.

That’s what you need to do right now.

Don’t think or talk about finally learning to work with your crystals, do it.
