Amp Up Your Voltage: Crystals to Support the Lymphatic System

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Videos 25 Comments


As we move through our days, it’s easy to just mindlessly keep going, moving fast on autopilot. But we may want to start paying attention and slow down long enough to take time to read the signs. You know, the messages that we receive again and again to slow down… and lately I’ve received many signs to stop and give some TLC to my lymphatic system; in particular the need to encourage Lymphatic Drainage.

So, I did 😉 and this video/blog is the result. I found some things that worked for me that I want to share with you.

I got inspired by something I read about in a few different books at the same time (gotta love those synchro-mysticisms!) all around lymphatic drainage. I thought,
“This is a Sign!”
I’d had a recent uptick in allergies not related to seasonal blooms.  I knew it was from some not-so-great food I was eating that I know better not to eatI don’t eat super bad, but it wasn’t the healthiest either and it was affecting my allergies… as could have been predicted!

I know I’ve had these issues before, so all this was telling me that I really needed to clean it up big time!  I was becoming super, super sensitive to just about anything. I’ve known for a while but just kept on ignoring that my lymphatic system, my body’s plumbing system was in need of some help.

DISCLAIMER: As always when discussing these sorts of things, let me preface this post by saying you all know I’m no doctor.  I am not giving you medical advice. I’m just telling you what worked for ME. If you choose to use any advice given here, I advise you to take this to your doctor first. This info should be used as a compliment to a sound holistic health plan.

Lymphatic Drainage
So, why do we want to actively drain our lymphatic system? Can’t our body just do it on its own like our heart pumps our blood without us doing anything to initiate that? 

Well, one thing I recently learned in the book, Healing is Voltage (I highly recommend this book, but it’s very heavy science stuff. If you’re not interested in that then you may not like this book):

The Lymphatic System is our plumbing system, but it doesn’t have an actual pump. If our voltage is not high enough amplitude in our body (pH is a measure of that; your looking for it to be more on the alkaline side than on the acidic side)… then the lymphatic system won’t work optimally, meaning it won’t drain itself efficiently.
What’s the Cause?
Your cells need to be surrounded by a certain voltage in the extracellular environment. Overall, your body needs to have the correct voltage to operate optimally.  If your lymph system is clogged up then the plumbing system is backed up.

Backups can be caused by pollution in our environment, pollutants we’re ingesting, things we’re putting on our skin, things we eat, etc. In a nutshell,  if you’re eating inorganic foods and toxic things that may be in that food, that all gets into your lymph system.

OR… the blockages may begin as an energetic block or clog. If things that are going on with us mentally or emotionally are not dealt with, they’ll eventually fester and get more energetically dense.  Then it condenses down until it starts affecting us on a physical level. Perhaps things that we haven’t forgiven ourselves for or forgiven others for or repressed anger against others…stuff like that gets denser and denser if it hasn’t been dealt with on an energetic level until finally, boom! It’s in your physical body and now it’s plugged up your lymphatic system.

When it gets plugged up, it ends up seeping out into the extracellular area around the lymph nodes. That sludge becomes the “electrons stealers”; stealing electrons from the rest of your body and thereby lowering your voltage. No bueno.
Just like you want your energetic vibration to be high, you want your electrical voltage to be as high as it possibly can be.
Without getting into specific numbers, you want your lymph system to be operating at its optimum level.  We can get there by eliminating acidic-forming and junk food as well as by reducing the toxic load in our environment. But even if you decide to clean up your act now, you still have to do some clean up to cleanse the system from the past “sins”. You’ve got to clean out the plumbing, right?

If you got a clogged up pipe in your house you can just say, “Okay I’m going to stop throwing junk down there” but until you remove the clog and get the system running correctly, you’re not going to correct the problem.
Take Matters Into Your Own Hands
For myself, I saw the signs and I decided, “Let’s jumpstart this thing”.  So I went ahead and had a lymphatic drainage massage done by a local energy healer and then I did an infrared sauna for 30 min. immediately after that at her office. I did that treatment 3 weeks in a row.

The infrared frequency, whether via sauna or a Biomat session (or whatever way you prefer to get infrared energy into your bod) helps to get the lymph system flowing along. If you do decide to use either the Infrared sauna or the Biomat, be sure to turn up the heat as high as is safe for you. My goal when I do this is to sweat out any built-up toxins and then immediately afterward I take a shower to get all the toxic-stuff off of me.

Crystal Body Layout
For this layout you will need:

  • 8-10 smokey quartz tumbled stones
  • 1 tsp Cream of Tartar
  • Bay Laurel organic and 100% pure essential oil

My go-to crystal for any sort of detoxing is Smokey Quartz. You can get 8-10 tumbled stones and place the crystals next to or on your body where the lymph nodes tend to cluster (reference the above chart).

Creating a crystal body layout like this is going to put the smokey quartz vibrations within your electromagnetic field, so it’s going to encourage drainage and detoxing energy into your auric field. I like to relax in a layout like this for about 15-30 minutes.

Additionally, I recently learned to put a little teaspoon of organic Cream of Tartar under my tongue while doing this crystal body layout helps to encourage the release of toxins from my lymph system. ❤

Bay Laurel essential oil actually encourages drainage of the lymph nodes. You can also apply a few drops of the oil up and down your spine before lying down in the crystal layout (check for skin sensitivity first). Either have someone else do this for you or apply to areas that you can reach. In addition to applying it or instead of, you may diffuse the essential oil into your space.

While you’re laying there in the crystal body layout, we’re going to use vibrational frequency of visualization of actually move the energy. I often teach in my Certified Crystal Healer Course about an internal energetic light column that we have – an energetic tube that goes right through the center of our body.  You’re going to visualize light going from the bottom of that column up to the top of your head, then out and around flowing around your body back down to your feet. Just like you’ve seen magnetic fields around a magnet. Your energy is doing this too.
You’ll want to visualize that energy free, clear, light and bright.
See that energy lit up, bright white rainbow light flowing in and up and around and then out and back in again, flowing beautifully without any blocks, totally free-flowing.  Clearing, cleansing your lymphatic system. Set that intention and visualize that happening and the actual effect is so much more powerful!
Other Effective Things I Do

  • Encouraged lymphatic drainage by applying gentle pressure on the lymph system.  Here’s a video that can direct you on how to do that:

  • You can also drink some herbal tea to help cleanse your system.  I recommend Dandy Blend tea; a dandelion-blend tea. It doesn’t taste like a tea at all actually if you prepare it correctly, according to the directions on the back… it tastes more like a coffee to me.  And unlike coffee, it’s actually pH alkalizing while also very efficient at cleansing out your lymph system + your liver.
  • I also use jade tools to encourage lymphatic drainage. Very gently, I use these jade massage tools to encourage lymphatic drainage and to break up impurities underneath the skin, while improving circulation to the area.  Jade is all about the vibrational frequency of healing, vitality, healing the body, healing energy.  Another tool I really like is a jade roller.  I like using the roller because not only does it help with the lymph drainage, you can use it all over your face for all the different lymph nodes located there so for its anti-aging benefits too! It helps with the vitality of the skin and circulation all the while you’re infusing that Jade energy – health and vitality – into your energetic body.
  • You can also layer on additional vibrational frequencies by adding a few drops of that Bay Laurel essential oil (test for skin sensitivity first!) to your fractionated coconut oil and it’ll allow the jade tools to flow a little bit easier over the skin with less resistance.
  • Make sure you take a shower after your Lymphatic Drainage massage to wash off the oils and because toxins are going to be released.

Lymphatic Health Oil Diffusing Blend
Use this blend of the following essential oils in your oil diffuser:

  • Lemon, 3 drops
  • Frankincense, 2 drops
  • Myrrh, 2 drops
  • Oregano, 2 drops

Keep in mind with this oil blend, we’re not going for the most beautiful smell here.

We’re going for efficacy.

I hope this info was helpful and valuable to you!  If you feel it was, please share it out.

Let me know if you’ll be incorporating any of these tips and tools to drain your lymphatic system and amp up your voltage.  Notice a difference?  Feeling balanced or more energized?  What are some other things that you’ve tried?

How to Neutralize Negative Energy with Crystals

Hibiscus Moon Videos 8 Comments


What can you do when you’re stuck in a situation that feels or you’re perceiving as negative, and you want to transmute that feeling- from an energetic standpoint? You know… because that negative-energy-downward-spiral can be pretty powerful! 

Do you desire to have some simple tools to combat its effects? 

We’re probably all familiar with this common advice:
“If you’re surrounded by negative people, it’s going to bring you down. Like attracts like. It’s going to pull you down to their level, where they’re at, so the best thing to do is just surround yourself with people who make you feel great.”
Easier said than done, right?

In today’s video I discuss this very topic:

In an ideal world, that would be wonderful; to be able to do that all the time… but sometimes, we’ve all been caught in situations where you’re just not able to realistically achieve that.

For most of us, you can’t just dictate and control everybody who’s around you.

There are certain things you’re in control of and certain things that you’re not. And sometimes, you just HAVE to be in that environment for a little while– hopefully not for too long… and get yourself through it without bringing yourself down to that level.
So, what can we do to get ourselves through and have it not negatively affect our energy?
You know I always turn to crystals for stuffs like this!

But my first thing to do is to remember: I have total control over HOW I perceive things.

I try to keep that in mind and stay non-judgmental.

This doesn’t mean that I always succeed; it just means that I try to remind myself to stay in that mindset and to remember that this is all my perception. My reality is what I’m choosing to perceive, so I can choose to try to focus on something else or to perceive the situation differently. These are things all within my control!
“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Next, I go to the energetic tools…

Note:  I’ve spoken previously about this topic of neutralizing negativity and using crystals to get negativity out of your environment in several different ways from several different angles. 😉 Here I’m trying to focus and tailor it to current questions that I’m getting now, so this blog post/video has a slightly different take on it, but I’ll also link below to a list of some classic, pillar blog posts and videos that I’ve done on this topic in the past; you can pick and choose whatever angle you want to approach it from:

  • How to Clear Negative Energy Out of Your Home FAST
  • Crystals for an Energetic Shield of Protection
  • Crystals for Lowering  your EMF Risks …and WHY you should care

Crystal Tools for Neutralizing Negative Energy
Black Tourmaline

I’m sure you’d guess that my preferred energetic tool for this is crystals (and in the above video I show you my fav piece of Black Tourmaline). It’s my go-to piece that I always have nearby.

It’s in front of me when I work at my computer because it helps to not only neutralize negativity that I’m perceiving, but it’s also great at blocking electromagnetic fields from electronics.

However, it might not be so convenient to carry around a big-honkin’ piece of Black Tourmaline. Might be more practical to wear a bracelet that’s made of Black Tourmaline or has some Black Tourmaline beads on it, or maybe wear a pendant that’s made of Black Tourmaline like these.

I really like wearing it in this way because it’s not a very harsh, forceful type of energy. It’s more of what I always call your energetic bodyguard who has your best interest at heart. It protects you in a gentle way and isn’t going to pull you down even further; which… sometimes intense stones like black obsidian can be known to do. (Black Obsidian is very, very powerful and not really what I consider for everyday use.) Black Tourmaline is gentle enough for everyday use and one of my favorites for that.

Smokey Quartz

Another crystal for neutralizing negative energy is Smokey Quartz.  In the above video, I show you my beloved piece of Smokey Quartz from Namibia that I’ve been working with for years (also pictured in above photo). I’ve bonded closely with this crystal. It knows me and I know it. It’s a beautifully rich coffee dark brown, yet transparent color. Definitely NOT irradiated!

Smokey Quartz is great for detoxing; getting in and digging out and getting rid of anything that’s sunk into your auric field. We don’t want it to fester, becoming denser and going deeper and deeper to where it ends up manifesting in your physical body as some kind of physical ailment.

It’s ideal for detoxing any kind of negativity at all. So, a combo of these two (black tourm + smokey quartz), having both of them together, maybe again, in a bracelet is very practical and pretty.

You could even place your crystal in a little pouch and carry it around with you if you like; in a backpack or a purse or something like that.
Essential Oils
Perhaps you already know about sage smudging and those kinds of things for your home environment, or even using sound acoustics to clear out the negativity, but I also like to use an essential oil that you can pair up with the crystals, to harmonize with and further amplify their vibrations.

An EO that I really like for that is Orange. It really helps to lift your spirits via its specific vibrational frequency. Plus, it’s kinda hard for people to stay in that negative mindset when they’re smelling orange in the area.

Try it! 😉

Some other options are:

  • Tangerine
  • Bergamot
  • Ylang Ylang

Another favorite of mine is doTERRA’s onGuard blend. Negativity, be-gone! (If you’d like to learn more about working with essential oils you might want to join my private Facebook group where we discuss just that.)

Alright, so give that energetic combo a try next time you need to neutralize the negativity in your space and let me know how it goes! And please share this blog post with a friend. I feel that lightworkers, especially, need to have info like this in their energetic toolbox. I’d also love to hear what your fav alternatives are for this are in the comments below.

1.  How to Work with the Energy of the Solar Eclipse
Our Sun is going through some extreme changes and so, I feel from here on out it’s more important than ever to pay attention to these cosmic events that involve our Sun (Sol) in any way.

Those of you that have been following me for a while know that I love to ride our local cosmic energies. Now, I used to avoid giving out advice on how to work with the energy of a solar eclipse because I was still experimenting with it myself, but I’ve since worked it out and done it enough that I feel confident in sharing this info out with you.

2.  Attracting MONEY, Success + Abundance into your life with Crystals
We know that crystals have many amazing healing properties, but they can also be used to attract money, success, prosperity & abundance by being a vibrational match to that type of energy, that frequency. 

So first things first. In order to attract all that good stuffs I just mentioned above…you need to have cleared your mind of any old thought patterns you might be harboring that tell you do not have enough, you’ll never succeed or that you’re lacking in some way. We absolutely can use crystals as tools & supports to help us attract what we seek. Like attracts like, so first we must re-define our way of thinking.

I know…that sounds like a tall order.

3.  Watermelon Tourmaline Benefits: The Healing Power of Watermelon Tourmaline
I am so excited to tell you all about Watermelon Tourmaline + share my new watermelon crystal treasure with you in this quickie-vid…

You’ve probably heard me talk about black tourmaline and reference it often (b/c it’s the bomb diggity!) for grounding and protection in many aspects of daily life.

It’s a must for your crystal healing tool box!

4.  The Amethyst Latte that Broke the Internet
So, I posted THIS on FB…and Instagram recently & we just about broke the Internet!

Everyone was shouting: RECIPE!

And I promised it was coming to the blog… so, finally here we are!

I had been playing around with creating my own version of the now famous Amethyst Latte from the Brooklyn Cafe; The End and came up with what I think is an even healthier, tastier more energetically-charged recipe that you can easily do in your own kitchen. 😀

5.  Which Crystal is the Most Powerful?
 Today, I want to address a question that I get often, which is,

“Which crystals are the most powerful to work with?”

It’s a question, at first… I used to kind of say,

“Well, that all depends,”

but now I’ve actually come across some info, done some research + some work on my own… and I’ve changed my answer:

Yes, I have some crystals, or A CRYSTAL, that I do feel is the MOST powerful.

6.  The Story Behind Lemurian Crystals
Today’s video is all about Lemurian Crystals! 

There seems to be a lot of confusion going on about what a Lemurian Crystal is, or a Lemurian Seed Crystal…yes, they are slightly different—I’ve even recently gone into several stores and have seen signs that display, “Lemurian Crystals,” (because it’s a super-hot term right now)… but what they’re really displaying next to the sign that says, “Lemurian Crystals,” are not Lemurians.

7.  More Crystal Fakes & Misrepresentations
Yep, we’ve got more crystal fakes to talk about today. 😀 Yahoooo!

On my most recent trip out to the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show I attended a lecture on Fake Minerals.

Oh my gosh…this was so right up my alley! Can you make a Crystal Hottie/Nerd any happier? I mean… finding an academic lecture to attend while hanging out at the biggest most glittery gem show in the world, teaching about mineral frauds. Whaaaaa? You better believe I was front row & center, glasses pressed down tight on my nose, notebook & pencil in hand! Poor Frankie (my hubs) suffered through too. He’s such a good sport! 🙂

8. Crystals for an Energetic Shield of Protection
Do you know how to create an energetic shield of protection around you if you’re an energy healer… or even if you’re not? We all need to mindfully protect our energy.

Years ago,  when I first started learning about energy healing, doing energy healing, and even teaching people about energetic healings, I started noticing something…that I wasn’t really protecting myself correctly & I was zapping myself of energy after doing these healing sessions or teaching groups of people.

This type of work really zaps the energy from you…if you don’t know how to mitigate that. It’s important to protect yourself & protect your energy with an energetic shield of protection, and crystals can help you do just that.

9.  Crystals for the Color of the Year: Greenery ~ 2017~ Sphene + Peridot
Pantone chooses a color of the year every year, and…you may or may not know, I’ve done this crystal video to go along with the color of the year for a few years running now.

This year, for 2017, Pantone chose a color called Greenery

Now, I was excited to find out what the color was and I was really excited to see it!

The first thing I thought of was “nature + freshness + vibrancy”.

I thought, “Perfect. I know exactly what crystals I’m going to go to that reflect ‘greenery’.”

10.  Crystal Work for an Attitude of Gratitude

Jean – Baptiste Massieu said “Gratitude is the memory of the heart.”

Gratitude, appreciation, thankfulness all flows from the heart.  It’s the simplest yet most powerful of notions.

It’s the pulse of life… right up there with Prana, Shakti, Chi.  And it undoubtedly opens the doors to greater love & joy.

It clears the pathway, it raises your vibration.  It sparks wonder in the small moments, love in all things. ❤
