well, today, I’m gonna to talk to you about a vibrational frequency combo we can use to give ourselves a boost of creativity when we really need it.

Ready?

OK, so this is for those of us that create… create anything, whether you’re writing a book or painting a painting or sewing something up — anything at all! We create in so many different glorious ways.

But, sometimes you run across periods of time where your creativity-well dries up, and we’ve all run into those times where you’re just plain blocked. You’ve hit the Creativity Wall. 🙁

Maybe you set aside a specific time to sit down and do your creative work, so you sit down and you can’t think of a single freakin’ thing to sculpt, you can’t think of what to write, to make; it’s just not flowing to you as you know it has in the past… you know, when you’re in the zone.

This often happens to me when I’m writing my crystal content. I strictly schedule out my week so I write on certain days; I don’t just go and do it when it strikes my fancy. I find sticking to a planned out schedule is what USUALLY works best for me and sticking to this system like glue is great for my boundaries and consistency, but it’s NOT always the best for inspiring creativity.  Yeah, there are those times when it just doesn’t happen and I sit down and my Creativity Muse is nowhere to be found.

Luckily, I do feel there are some things we can do, energetically, to help kind of coax that creativity back & get back into your Zone of Genius.

And of course, for me, that usually involves crystals!
Crystal Creativity Mix
I’ve spoken about Carnelian quite a bit before related to boosting creativity.

This stone is closely related to your sacral chakra, the second chakra. Carnelian is all about supporting and inviting in creative flow and allowing that creation energy to travel freely.

Using carnelian helps to balance out that chakra so its working at its best and gets those creative juices flowing again.

Another favorite crystal of mine for this is Spessartine Garnet (that’s the geometric-little number, top right crystal below). Also pictured below the garnet in order are:

  • orange calcite
  • honey calcite
  • carnelian (over to the left)

This specific garnet is one that supports not only the sacral chakra but also the 2 neighboring chakras; the root below it as well as the solar plexus above it. This crystal is all about attraction; both sexual as well as creative!

I have a little Spessartine Garnet, that I show you in the video that’s a natural geometric shape, it wasn’t carved. It so easily expresses its sacred geometry. All crystals have sacred geometry at their core, but this one easily expresses it. It’s obviously in the orange color family, that’s the specific light frequency that helps to boost our creativity.

So, say I’m sitting here in front of my computer & I really need that creativity mojo-boost right then, or I’m having a hard time with a creative block… here are a few ways I may choose to work with these crystals:

  • Just place them nearby while you work
  • Do a quick 5 minute creative meditation with it while holding it in your hand (I have a FREE meditation you can grab plus some other juicy creative-block busting goodies over here in my  Juicy Creative Sacral Chakra Immersion eKit! )
  • Or plop a non-toxic crystal choice into water and make a gem elixir drink or tea.  (Carnelian is very safe choice for doing that. 😉 )

Then I’ll also layer in other vibrational frequencies to pack a more powerful punch.
Essential Oils
My favorites for layering up the vibrational frequencies are specific essential oils that correspond & play well with Carnelian + Spessartine Garnet. I have three of them I feature in my video and I usually do all 3 in my own special little blend. I’ll burn them in an oil burner or diffuse them in a diffuser. If you’d like to learn more about playing with essential oils you can join me in my doTERRA Essential Oils Facebook group over here.

My three choices for this are:

  • Sweet Orange (or you could just go with regular orange, tangerine, or a blend like Citrus Bliss… those are all sort of interchangeable in my mind for the vibrational frequency aspect of it)
  • Bergamot
  • Jasmine

You can even dilute them with some fractionated coconut oil & make a gorgeous perfume out of it; plop in a few carnelian gemstone chips and watch how that turns up the dial on your creativity!! These scents together with the vibrational frequency of the Spessartine Garnet and the Carnelian—oh my goodness, it’s just absolutely amazing!

Light Frequency
Something else I wanted to add (that I forgot to mention in the video) that I like to do is to bathe my immediate environment in the orange light frequency since it carries the specific vibrational wavelengths of creativity. A very easy way to do this is to use an easy color changing light bulb like this one!

I talk about using these in crystal healing sessions with students in my Certified Crystal Healing Course and it’s always a big hit!

Give some of these ideas a go if you run into one of those creative blocks, and let me know how it goes for you? Please tell me about it in the comments below. 🙂

Get your sparkly lasso b/c it’s crystal round-up time!

Today I’m going to list out my 10 Most Popular Crystal Blog Posts of 2015!

Why?

B/c just in case you missed any of these last year, I want to make sure you see them now. **These blog posts really vibed it up BIG-TIME with our Crystal Hottie Community so chances are…you’re going to love at least a few of them too!**

So here they are…my most sparkliest 10 posts of 2015:

1. Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Himalayan Salt Lamps (you love those freakin’ Salt Lamps!)
[caption id="attachment_15786" align="alignright" width="297"] Topaz is a smart cookie, you know![/caption]

 

I get a lot of questions like these about Himalayan Salt Lamps:

What’s the big deal about these Himalayan Salt Lamps?

Do they really do what everybody says they do?

So the major thing that Himalayan Salt Lamps “do” is that they induce negative ions into your environment. (We’ll get to that in full post!!!)

I have 1 in my sacred crystal studio. He’s super heavy & pretty darn big…comes up to my knee.  I really like to have a salt lamp in just about every room of our home (2 in the bedroom; we have 1 on each of our night stands on either side of our bed.)

2. The Ultimate Guide to Shungite (HOTTEST new stone on the market)
Shungite, shungite, shungite!

This stuff came out on the new age stone-lovers scene about 3 years ago & made quite the big splash. I’m not sure why it suddenly became so popular but it’s not usually listed in the older, more popular crystal property books so people are often left wondering & asking me lots & lots of questions about it.

There are numerous web articles out there that make lots of unfounded claims about shungite so I really felt the need to finally get this blog post out there.

3.  3 Crystals to Mega Boost Your Self-Esteem (really struck a chord)
Have issues with worthiness? Self-Worth? Self-esteem? Self love?

Well, I’ve got some crystals for you!

Yes, I’ve got some crystals to help boost your feelings of worthiness, or boost your self-esteem, your self-worth. 

You know, a lot of us have issues with this.  Because…maybe we’ve been bullied.  Perhaps, there are people in our lives that talk negatively to us or criticize us for every little thing we do. 🙁

After a while you start to believe that stuffs.  Keep in mind, they’re being this way b/c you’re not just like them, because of their own feelings of low self-esteem & low self-worth.

4. WARNING: If Toxic Crystals Are So Bad, Why Do Some Recommend Them? (watch out!)
If Toxic Crystals Are So Bad, Why Do Some Recommend Them?

Well, I really cannot say why some recommendations don’t give at least a fair warning, but I suppose that most who are recommending the crystals assume the danger is low. Sometimes it is…and sometimes it isn’t.

Here’s a really good question I was recently asked by a student:

If Cinnabar is a toxic crystal why do crystal healing books recommend it?

For that matter, why would anyone recommend working with ANY toxic crystals at all?

5.  Is The Power Of Quartz A Scam? (explains the science behind HOW quartz crystals work…you eat up that science shiz as much as I do!)
Is the power of crystals & quartz energy a scam?  No way!

How will I prove that to you?  By throwing some science at it, of course!

Quartz is amazing in so many ways.  It makes up some of our very favorite crystals to work with:

  • clear quartz
  • amethyst
  • citrine
  • smokey quartz
  • rose quartz

7. Sparkly Ideas for Using Crystals with Children (Kids + Crystals; an effortless combo)
I’m so excited about this one, because I get asked about this a lot, and it’s one of my favorite subjects to talk about, it’s:

Crystals for Children

Sometimes I’m asked what crystals are good for kids to bring with them to school, to calm down their energy because sometimes, some  children have a lot more energy than others.

So, we have part A & Part B of this discussion:

  • Calming down a child’s energy if necessary
  • Crystals kids can have in their bedroom or for school to help them feel safe + protected (perhaps against nightmares), that will also help transmute negative energy so that it’s perceived by them as neutral and not perceived as “negative”; a handy tool for them to have in their pocket.

    8. Can I share deep? Some stuff you didn’t know about me… (some personal stuffs about me)
    Tag, you’re it!

    I got “tagged” by Flora Sage (one of my buddies from YouTube) for an Intuitive Tag/Challenge.

    I thought I should also post this here on my blog b/c many of you don’t follow me on YouTube & in this video I share a lot of fun personal stuffs that I would really love to share with YOU.

    The Share:

    1.  Share your first paranormal experience that comes to mind

    The first thing that comes to my mind is when I saw a UFO when I was 3-years-old.  I still think to this day that it  was a UFO or possibly more than one even, started when I was about 3.  It never escalated to contact or anything like that, but it began my experience. A number of other incidences have happened over my lifetime as far as viewing, seeing UFOs.  I already did a video explaining that whole experience.  It was quite interesting.

    9.  Crystals for your living space & can I squeeze into an amethyst crystal?(practical crystal info to make your home a Happy Sacred Space)

    “Should there be a certain set of crystals or a “crystal mix” for rooms like your living room or living space?”

    I think that it’s not a “should”, but there are definitely things you can do to make your living space feel more comfy; more vibrationally aligned with the type of energy that you’re trying to bring in to a living room or great room living space.

    Usually, that kind of room is a room where everyone likes to hang out, several people will gather for anything & so you want it to be a space that has good energy within it.

    10. The MacGyver Approach to Crystal Healing (do you want to figure this crystal healing shizzle all out & rig it up on your own? Maybe, maybe not.)
    Teenagers sure are funny.

    I miss teaching them science in the classroom. It was so amusing to me that they had discovered older 80’s shows on Netflix that my generation used to enjoy; Walker, Texas Ranger, Magnum PI & MacGyver to name a few. And they would often come to me in the very hands-on, unconventional classroom that I ran, wanting to try to “MacGyver” something up.

    Of course, I always encouraged it (as long as it didn’t involve blowing something up!) So off they went with duct tape & paper clips seeing what they could cobble together. Hysterical!!

    Many of you have asked me this question on my Facebook page;

    “Why can’t I just teach myself all this crystal healing stuff with books or the info available online?”

    So, you want to MacGyver it up?

    How Carnelian is Bringing “Sexy” Back + a FREE Gift for You!

    Hibiscus Moon chakras, creativity, Crystal Goodness, Gem Elixirs, Videos 20 Comments

    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.
    Carnelian
    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
