Rose Quartz Healing Properties, Correspondences and Meanings

Many notice the big, mondo-sized rose quartz rock by my front door to entrain the vibrational frequencies entering my home. Why do I keep that crystal there?

Rose quartz is your crystal of love and compassion. It’s a crystal for all matters of the heart; both emotional as well as physical. Rose quartz invites us to connect with Divine Energy. This stone has a very gentle energy and is an ideal stress-reliever while it also invites in more kindness and compassion.

It’s known to assist with all matter of fertility and the menstrual cycle. I even include in my very popular fertility combo.

This is also a stone for beauty often used in baths and facials. Brings about a glowy, more youthful skin tone. I pop a tumbled stone into my facial moisturizer and also use rose quartz facial discs for my facial. Alternately, you can find a rose quartz roller to stimulate blood flow to your complexion.

These are the polished rose quartz discs I like to include in my regular facials.

It can become your “BFF crystal” that you cultivate a really close bond with (like I have). I also have one of these buddy-pieces that I’ve bonded with ever-present by my bedside; using that particular piece for a lot of different things. For instance, any kind of love, and we know there are different kinds of love in the English language. We should probably have different vocabulary words for the different types of love:

  • friendship love
  • family love
  • romantic love
  • self-love
  • compassion-love

I could go on but you get the picture. All of these different types of love obviously are very, very important, so rose quartz is one that you may want to have in your collection, in my opinion.

Affirmations
I love the crystal affirmations provided in The Book of Stones. I use these affirmations for so many things; to start off my intention for a crystal meditation, to help balance a chakra or to include in a crystal grid. This one is the one given in that book for rose quartz:
“I open my heart to receive and express the energy of love.”
Geology and Identification
As a type of quartz, rose quartz, just as other quartz varieties has a Mohs hardness of 7 and belongs to the trigonal crystal system. It’s usually a light pink,  but can vary in color, intensity, and hue; sometimes a very deep pink colored and at other times, very pale so that it’s barely pink. Sometimes they’re right in between. And to tell you the truth, geologists are totally confused as to what the exact cause of its rosy hue. The precise element has yet to be pinpointed but has been blamed on trace amounts of:

  • titanium
  • iron
  • manganese
  • dumortierite (this one seems to be the most likely culprit)
  • phosphate
  • or even aluminum

Who the heck knows!

This stone can be found in Madagascar, South Dakota, Namibia, India, and Brazil.

Although translucent, it’s rarely ever transparent with a cloudy opaque look. You usually don’t see them growing naturally in points, that’s a rarity. Rose quartz most often appears in masses, so no crystals or crystal faces.
Pink Quartz?
Sometimes you’ll find rare and unique (translate: very expensive) pieces that do grow in points and… wow if you have one of those; hold on to that baby because it’s worth quite a bit! They’re quite rare.  (BTW, serious geologists don’t even consider these scarce rose quartz natural points to be “rose quartz”. In fact, they officially call them “Pink Quartz”). One major difference that sets them apart is that their pink color is not caused by the same element so that technically makes them entirely different mineral. Another important distinction between the two is that pink quartz is light-sensitive (so don’t leave it under UV lights or exposed to sunlight) – rose quartz is not. Hey, if you want to geek-out on that, check it out.

These star roses are usually visible when polished and they also are a deeper pink than rose quartz from other locales.

Chakra Association
This stone works very well with the heart chakra for emotional heart issues, spiritual heart issues as well as physical heart issues.
Rose Quartz Self Love Bath Recipe
This piggy-backs onto last week’s topic; Crystal Bath Therapy. Here’s a checklist of items you can add/use for a super-relaxing self-love inducing bath experience.

[caption id="attachment_21788" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Photo credit: @aldengagnon on Instagram (shared with permission). She shared: “Today I quite literally surrounded myself with self-love! I used these ingredients for a self-love ritual bath (inspired by the recipe in Hibiscus Moon’ latest video”.[/caption]

BTW, each item listed here is optional, there are no hard fast rules but the more items you can add in, the more amplified the effect):

  • Pink Himalayan sea salt: 1 cup
  • Rosewood essential oil: 4 drops
  • Rose absolut essential oil: 2 drops
  • Several tumbled rose quartz stones (4-7 depending on size)
  • Pink rose petals (organic, dried or fresh)
  • Rose quartz candles (you can make your own as discussed here)
  • Rose Water (a few squirts or use as facial toner post-bath)

Are These Meanings Reliable?
This section refers to a new disclaimer I’ve needed to give recently.

The info on this page relies mostly on common crystal correspondences that have been relied on for hundreds of years (much going back to ancient times), that I have also researched and have found to be consistent for myself, my clients as well as for the thousands of students and graduates of my Certified Crystal Healer Course. Now, the known-crystal-properties ring true for about 80% of the population.
However, recently, something has changed.
For those that don’t resonate with rose quartz’ usual correspondences; instead of being indifferent to it, now these people are seeing more of an intense negative reaction. Something has shifted with the energy there. Both with us as humans reacting to the stone as well as with the crystal itself, especially being a silicate.  If you’d like to learn more about this possible issue, I wrote a blog post here about why this may be occurring.

I don’t personally find this to be true for myself, but for some, it’s even bringing up feelings of anger and anxiety! Not a widespread issue but something to definitely keep in mind. You’ll need to experiment with it to see how you react to rose quartz. Hopefully, you’re in the 80%.

Crystal Bath Therapy | Immediate Energetic-Hygiene Fix

Hibiscus Moon energy work, Uncategorized 8 Comments

Ever hear of a crystal water bath?

Let me fill you in.

Recently, I realized that my third chakra, my solar plexus, needed to be re-calibrated. (I discussed the circumstances surrounding that in my latest newsletter). It’s underactive at the moment; very out of sorts for me actually and therefore, really disconcerting too. If you’d like to find out more about the science behind crystals + chakras, you’ll want to start here with a classic blog post I have on that. So, I was getting ready to do a solar plexus crystal bath and thought to myself,
“This is a great topic to share about and explain why a crystal bath is a highly effective and immediate energetic hygiene-fix!”
A water soak with your chosen crystals is an excellent way to work with them. At the same time, you’re also creating your own relaxing spa experience. 

The Science
Now, let me explain why I feel putting stones in the tub (with water) can be so powerful.

It’s an easy and efficient way to infuse your auric field with their vibrational frequencies; to help balance chakras, influence certain energies or to help manifest certain things.

See, all matter emits electromagnetic frequencies, as do crystals, as do people. Those frequencies travel, just as electricity does (in the form of electrons). so we have something that’s a good electrical conductor; like me; a person.

GEEK ALERT: all living things are excellent electrical conductors (something that allows those electrons to flow with less resistance), hence why you don’t want to be out in the middle of a lightning storm! Metals are also good electrical conductors. Some things are better conductors than others. Gold, copper, silver are really good metals for this. And then we have water; water is also an excellent electrical conductor. The opposite would be a poor energy conductor (aka insulators); such as glass, plastic, rubber, air, and wood (not a living thing any longer).

So, we’ve got water + me; two effective energy conductors. Plus, water is highly programmable (will get to that in a bit).
Crystal Bath Frequencies
Crystals and stones emit their own individual resonant frequencies. Now with water being a good energy conductor, those frequencies are going to travel with less resistance and then come in contact with me, being another good energy conductor.  The less resistance, the easier it is for the energy to flow, therefore, that results in more efficient amplification of the vibrational frequencies.

So, with less resistance, the easier it is for my electromagnetic field be influenced by the frequencies of the stones I have in the water. In some ways, it’s more effective for us than a simple crystal meditation sitting on the cushion because you’re surrounded by water; an added powerful conductor.
Programmability of Water
We’re made up of about 70% water, just like our planet. Dr. Masaru Emoto’s research with water molecules has shown us that water is highly programmable. Through his experiments, he was able to show us that our thoughts and intentions have an effect on the molecular structure of water. When our intentions are positively directed towards the water, the water molecules are physically altered in a beneficial way.

(I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Emoto at a book signing shortly before his passing.)

Dr. Emoto noted these positive changes can be achieved through prayer, music or even by attaching labels to a container of water. The Institute of Hearth Math has confirmed these findings with waters programmed with prayers and healing intent from holy places around in various parts of the world.
This research shows us that water is an easily influenced energy transformer and an ideal delivery system.
This got me thinking if we’re beneficially affected by good intentions, compassion, kindness, and meditation due to the fact that we’re mostly made up of water; a highly programmable material?
So, to sum up…
Being that water and living things are such excellent conductors of energy and both so easily programmable, it seems very logical to me that combining the three (crystals + water + living being) will result in the vibrational frequencies of crystals and stones conducting energy with less resistance, thereby more easily influencing us!
Crystal Bath Recipe
The only three necessary items are:

  • You
  • Tub of Water
  • Crystal(s) of your choosing (following safety guideline below)
  • Each of the following steps is optional:

    • Fill the tub and add in some salts (Epsom and/or Himalayan Sea Salt). If you want more info on why it’s beneficial to add salts to your bath, I highly recommend you check out this book. Truly eye-opening! Be informed & get protected against EMF.
    • Choose a music selection specifically written to entrain your energy to help balance the chakra or achieve your personal goal.  Some music is expertly written to influence specific electromagnetic frequencies, connect with specific light codes, and can even be based on sacred geometry and numeric patterns. For my solar plexus, my go-to track is this one (I just keep it on repeat since it’s only 6 min. long).
    • Place your chosen stones in the water, but first… there are a few things to consider when choosing your stones. First, I  choose according to non-toxicity of the stone and next, because you don’t want your stone getting slowly dissolved or ruined by the water, you want to be sure it has a minimum Mohs Hardness no less than 6. Here’s a great resource for looking up the Mohs Hardness and other info about various crystals and minerals.  (If you’re really into learning more about the Mohs Hardness scale and some cool mineral ID tips, you might want to check out my Crystal Savvy Class Elective.) So, for my solar plexus chakra, I chose yellow calcite. It “ticks all the boxes”.
    • Next, you may choose to add 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils (no synthetics). They need to be safe for topical use as well as gentle on the skin. For solar plexus work, I usually choose lemon and/or peppermint. But only 1 or 2 drops because these can be irritating to the skin. Please do your own due diligence here; research, test and use caution!
    • I also love candles with a bath like this and I usually make my own chakra candles or you could go with something like this and place them around the tub. In this case, I’d be using a yellow candle (in alignment with the solar plexus chakra) that may also have essential oils and crystal chips embedded within. The candles allow me to layer in a few more similar vibrational frequencies to add to the total effect and further amp up the effectiveness of my chakra balancing.

    More Creative Options
    You can choose to adjust the frequency of your water and program it in a specific way using a tuner like this free one (528Hz is known as the Love Frequency):

    https://youtu.be/5qBiGIAShpo

    You can be highly creative in the types of crystal baths you can do.

    I share a recipe for a Self Love Ritual Bath here.

    I’ve seen some highly specialized crystal bath salts. For instance, You can add those little gemstone chips they sell in tiny bottles into a small muslin bag. Then mix in half Epsom salts, half sea salt or Himalayan salt. Next, toss in some herbs that align with the frequency of the chakra you’re looking to balance or with the intention you’d like to manifest.

    I’d love to hear your ideas or if you try your own Crystal Therapy Bath; how did it go? Did you like the results? Please share in the comments below.

    Recent Mercury Retro and Eclipse Aftershocks | Crystals that Can Help

    Hibiscus Moon anxiety, energy work 27 Comments

    Cosmic Energies at Play Once Again
    We’re going to talk about recent Mercury retrograde and eclipse aftershocks and crystals that can help. I thought this was a good topic because I’ve been going through some aftershock activity myself. How about you?

    So, have you been through the wringer recently? Feeling like you can maybe use an ally on your side for some mood stabilizing to keep you even kilter?

    Last eclipse season ended on Aug. 11. Yet it seems to be leaving these rippling shock waves in its wake. I and many other people are in cleanup mode right now. Relationships changing, ending with people, not just people, entities, companies, lots of shakeup going on. Maybe things you totally didn’t expect or things that you had an inkling about.

    Then Mercury went direct on August 18th, but we’re still in the post-retro shadow until September 2nd.

    I used to not even pay attention to the retro shadow. Big mistake. Lesson learned!

    Wrong! This is the first time that I really got a kick in the pants to say, “Uh-uh, no. You’re not in the clear just because you’re in the shadow.”

    Also recently, I talked about different cosmic events that are happening that could be contributing to this energetic shift.

    I know in listening to others; I’m not alone in this. Many of us are in transition right now with a lot of things. I’ve spoken, like I said, recently about those cosmic energies and how that’s changing us and everything around us, our solar system, Mama Earth and even our crystals!

    This is an opportunity to just reset and rebuild things, right? It’s an opportunity not only for change but for growth in the right direction.

    Remember to just take a deep breath, put it into perspective. Reassess the situation, make a solid plan, surround myself with the right crystal allies for me at that moment and move forward.

    You might find you also need some obstacle breaking. Then put that into place. I have a blog about that too.

    Lithium to the Rescue!

    Today I’m focusing on lithium-bearing minerals and crystals. Yep… talking about the element, lithium. You’ll find out why in just a sec.

    You might also find there’s a scientific reason behind why you might be especially attracted to these lithium bearing crystals right now. We’ll get to that in a bit.

    2 reasons for the current high demand of this element: 

    • Demand for lithium batteries. You see, lithium holds a large amount of energy potential. It can produce a lot of electrical current relative to its size. That makes it ideal for small batteries. Think about it, where do we use small batteries? In all these devices we’re now all using all the time, right? In all our new technology.
    • Demand for the pharmaceutical industry; to treat various types of different mental conditions like bipolar disorder, different types of psychoses and for general mood balancing. Maybe it’s due to that high electrical energy potential that makes it an ideal mood stabilizer.

    My 3 Choices for Most Effective Lithium-Rich Crystals

  • Lithium Quartz
  • This crystal is a very lilac-mauve-y color (caused by inclusions within the quartz of various lithium-rich minerals).

    This crystal invites in a calm energy, helps to improve mood, to relieve anxiety, assists with emotional healing, while also quite helpful with general balancing of our mood.

    2. Lepidolite

    A lithium-rich mica; the word, “lepidolite” comes from the Greek word “lepidos”, which means scales- referring to its scaly appearance due to flakes of mica. BTW, mica is a type of sheet silicate that forms in distinct layers or sheets… and it’s what’s responsible for lepidolite’s beautiful iridescence, high shine, and translucence. You can visibly see the mica flecks or sheets in most pieces of lepidolite. 

    [caption id="attachment_21693" align="aligncenter" width="720"] Rob Lavinsky, iRocks.com – CC-BY-SA-3.0 [CC BY-SA 3.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons[/caption]This mineral is also known for aiding with emotional healing, aids in mood balancing, improves mood, relieves anxiety, promotes rest and peaceful sleep. In fact, I keep this piece right by my bedside. And when I was really having trouble sleeping I used to have a lepidolite crystal grid under the bed.

    3. Kunzite

    A lithium aluminum silicate, a pink-lilac lithium-rich mineral also known as “spodumene” is known to assist with emotional healing, matters of the heart, relaxing, mental rest and general balancing of moods.

    COLLECTION TIP: Lithium demand is really high right now. Pharmaceutical and tech companies are mining lepidolite and kunzite by the literal truckload! Because of that, the prices are high now. And going up. You’ll see this reflected in the cost of kunzite and lepidolite. In fact, the prices are expected to at least double if not quadruple within the next seven years. If you want a collection tip from me from me: Invest and stock up now in lithium quartz, lepidolite, and kunzite. If you’re going to wait, the price is just going to keep going up and up.

    Vibrational Frequencies

    These are all, you’ll notice, delicate mauve-ish, lilac colored stones.

    That color mirrors their specific vibrational frequencies; their precise energy. Kunzite and lepidolite, actually often grow together and are the two most popular choices for mining lithium ore for the reasons mentioned above.

    Now, I do feel there’s a biological reason behind why you’re attracted to certain minerals and gems. When you’re intuitively called to a particular mineral it can actually mean that your body is in need of more of it. Or in need of the elements within it; on a physical/bio-level. Your body is trying any way that it can to attract and entrain you with that vibrational frequency and bring it into your auric field.

    If you’d like to explore that topic further I have a blog post here all about that.
    Just like lithium can recharge our batteries and our devices, the minerals that contain it can recharge your auric/energetic battery as well.
    I hope I’ve given you some crystal choices today to help navigate any sort of chaotic energy shift. If you have some others to recommend or more info on lithium-rich minerals in general, please add to the comments below! I’d love to hear from you.

    Crystal Meanings | Are they Reliable?

    Hibiscus Moon Crystals, science 17 Comments

    crystal meanings

     

    Do you find that your usual crystal meanings and usual go-to correspondences are dependable?

    For example, has your go-to rose quartz or amethyst been as reliable as of late? I’m not necessarily asking if they’re “weaker,” but are they not working for you in the way that you’ve come to rely on?

    Or maybe it’s that they’re working but they’re just “different”.

    I’m asking because in all the years I’ve been working with and researching crystals, this is the first time I’ve noticed such a huge shift and many others (students, graduates and so many in our Crystal Family) have brought this to my attention too. 

    In a recent poll I did; 82% said this is the case for them. Whoa! That’s a lot.

    Crystals are millions of years old, some are even billions of years old. That’s just a drop in the bucket, in the grand scheme of a crystal’s life cycle. Right? So, perhaps this shift in energy many of us are experiencing is just part of a natural cycle. It could also be a change in certain crystals’ vibrational frequencies. I’ll get into the “why” of that in just a bit here. 
    Crystal Meanings – Influenced By Energetic Shifts?
    Citrine (The Baked Variety)

    I’ve noticed lately that the baked variety of Citrine seems to have diminished with respect to its power. Now, the baked variety of citrine is the most widely available. It has more of that orange tint to it. You’d be hard-pressed to find a large geode that’s real-deal citrine.

    Me? I prefer to stay away from man-made and man-altered as much as possible, Babe.

    Congo and Brazil citrine, now here’s a different animal! Both completely natural and I love ’em. With these types ts of citrine, I’ve actually found their power to be amp’ed up. Brazil citrine is an excellent crystal to pick up, less expensive than Congo citrine, however, harder to identify it from the fake stuff for some. 

    Rose Quartz

    Now, this is an interesting one. I don’t personally find this to be true for myself, but many of our Crystal Family Members are saying that Rose Quartz is no longer helping with matters of the heart. Which, as you know, is something it’s widely believed to influence. Again, not my personal experience with this crystal at the mo’ but it’s clearly happening to others. So, noted!

    Veracruz Amethyst

    Veracruz Amethyst is traditionally a go-to for calming the mind; an excellent stone to work with when looking for assistance with meditation. However, this doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. Is this true for you? This might not be true for everybody across the board, just something that I’ve noticed.

    Selenite

     

    The way I use Selenite has changed as well. I’ve found that as of late, I enjoy meditating with selenite. Which is very odd because I used to use Veracruz amethyst to do that.

    Reason is: selenite’s usual mega-impact higher frequency energy has seemed to have lowered its amplitude and calmed down quite a bit. I feel like this is a perfect example of how a crystal isn’t necessarily weaker but instead working extremely well in another capacity.

    Moldavite

    Moldavite is a crystal that’s traditionally considered to be super-high energy. However, lately, I and many others have found it to be lacking in this quality. Which I’m sure you would agree is quite strange for moldavite.
    Other Crystals Experiencing a Possible Energy Shift

    • K2 Granite – aka K2 “jasper” has a gray and white modeled background with the beautiful blue azurite spots in it. Oddly enough it seems to have started to darken, which could indicate that there’s an intense energy exchange happening with it.
    • Herkimer Diamond – yet another one that seems to be suddenly lacking in regards to its energy; lackluster, dampened
    • Smokey Quartz – a crystal that used to be known for a gentler de-toxing energy. Today a lot of people are referring to it as their go-to crystal for lively energy and high focus; a new popular fav too, whereas in the past it was not as popular.

    Cosmic Shifts
    There’ve been some mega-energy shifts impacting not just Earth but our entire Solar System. I’m sure you’ve heard plenty of people bring up the topic of climate change. However, climate change is not specific to Earth, ya know. It’s happening on a number of other planets as well. The energy changing our Solar System is obviously impacting (evolving) the energetics of our planet, Mama Earth. Which means that Earth’s crystal beds are being impacted as well.

    What could be causing all these changes?

    Well, scientists have recently discovered that gamma-ray levels reaching our planet, have increased tremendously.  These bursts of cosmic rays come from massive supernovae, quasars, all sorts of cosmic sources we’re surrounded by in space. 
    3 Reasons Why our Exposure to Cosmic Rays is on the Rise

  • We’re in the Modern Grand Solar Minimum
  • Meaning our Sun is in a state relative minimal activity (few sunspots, prominences, flares, etc). When our Sun is in a state of high activity it creates a very strong protective magnetic field.

    2. Earth’s magnetic poles are shifting

    Earth’s poles influence Earth’s magnetic field. So, when the poles start to shift, our highly protective magnetic shield becomes weaker.

    3. Galactic Void 

    Our solar system isn’t sitting still just floating in space.

    Then, the Milky Way, as a whole, is spinning around the black hole at the center of the galaxy. Our Sun, too, travels in a spiral path through the Milky Way, bringing all of the planets that orbit it along for the ride. I LOVE how this video helps us visualize our Solar System’s vortex-voyage through the Milky Way galaxy:

    SUPER-COOL! Right?

    As we vortex through the galaxy we’re now entering a new zone, what we refer to as the “Local Bubble”; a new area of the Milky Way where it’s a sort of void; there’s less cosmic gas and dust in this “bubble” that would normally act as an additional protective shield from those outside cosmic rays.

    Links to the Proof
    Told ya I’d bring the receipts! 😉

    • July 3, 2018; date officially called “beginning of Cosmic Ray Epoch”
    • Cosmic Ray Graph (note last date; July 2018)
    • Suspicious 0bservers does a great job explaining new cosmic ray data
    • The Local Bubble
    • Strong Interstellar Field
    • Silica Rich Magma Affected by Cosmic Rays
    • Cosmic Rays Cause of DNA Upgrades
    • How Cosmic Rays change Human DNA

    Cosmic Energy Shifting and How it Affects Us + Crystals
    Can cosmic rays impact DNA? Yes. And it’s happened multiple times in the past. 

    But, these rays can impact more than just DNA; they can spark volcanoes, earthquakes, and other tectonic activity.
    Here’s the important bit that directly impacts the crystals: scientists believe the reason cosmic rays impact tectonic activity is that cosmic ray particles thin out the silica-rich magma layer.
    As the temperature increases, the energy also increases. Meaning the silica-rich magma layer becomes thinner. So, there’s been a change in the energy present at an atomic and molecular level!

    So, basically, the shift we’re all feeling, the crystals are feeling as well.

    The word “silica” refers to silicon dioxide (SiO2), which is what quartz is made of. (Amethyst is just silicon dioxide with the additional inclusion of iron.) Also, I should mention that silicates are minerals that have silica in it. Meaning it’s not just silicon dioxide; it could be any mineral that has silica in it like black tourmaline. Silicates make up many of our crystals and scientists are giving us the data that the cosmic rays are directly impacting, thinning out the silica-rich magma and the silicates… all pointing to the possibility of the silicates being the crystals most affected by all of this.
    Light = Information
    I feel these cosmic rays (light angles or “Angels” of Light) carry within their light-encoded frequencies, information; such as new programs and transformative overtones presenting themselves as DNA upgrades and crystal atomic remodeling. Meaning, some crystals will be downloading amazing intel!

    Cosmic rays UPGRADE and change all matter, including crystals AND our DNA.

    Also, let me address the last part of that statement regarding DNA: I’m sure some people might be a bit concerned by the thought of a change in our DNA. I don’t feel this is necessarily damaging to our DNA… or our crystals.

    High-frequency cosmic rays are completely different from other man-made forms of high-frequency radiation that can damage our DNA. 

    What I’m sayin’ is there’s a BIG DIFFERENCE between man-created and Source-created high-frequency rays. So, you won’t find most scientists backing up that statement but this comes from a deep inner knowing:  
    Cosmic rays are Source-created, and therefore flawless, organized information.
    If Our Crystals Change…
    The final point I want to leave you with is this…

    If our crystals are changing we may need to re-learn how to interact with them moving forward; spend some time getting to know them all over again. (And I very much look forward to that experience.)

    That’s really all it comes down to, and that’s exactly why I don’t teach my students to memorize crystal meanings or correspondences in my Certified Crystal Healer Course.

    I’d love to know, have you noticed that some of the crystals you work with have had an energetic shift, seem different, more powerful or simply no longer work for you? Let me know in the comments down below! The more input we get from each other, the more we can collectively learn and grow.
