I’ve been doing this crystal blog since 2009. Yeah, it’s been 7 years since I started blogging specifically about crystals! I just realized that myself as I sit here and think on this specific blog post.

Sitting at my desk in my sacred studio space; thinking, researching, putting into practice & typing away to share with you.

Recently, I took a look at those 472 blog posts I’ve written over the last 7 years & wondered …
What are the hottest blog topics in our Crystal Hottie Community?

Now…on to the most popular, most visited, most read posts from my blog of all time! 

Let’s dive in.

What does it mean when your crystal cracks or breaks?
It can be pretty distressing when a crystal cracks, right? And many of you want to know … What does it mean? 

It could be just plain ole’ science & physics that did it like a heavy impact or thermal shock: extreme hot to cold or cold to hot.

But sometimes a stone or crystal just breaks…with no explanation.

So then we have to look at energy.

What does it mean when your crystal disappears?
So what does it mean when a crystal disappears? Just up & goes AWOL?

  • Sometimes people will find their crystals later & it will be completely unexplained. Like the crystal manifested itself in a little bag that was locked up somewhere in a safety deposit box – something really, really wild, like that…& it’s completely unexplained. Unless of course you had amnesia & don’t remember doing such a thing. ?
  • Or sometimes, the crystal is found by someone else in a different place entirely; not even in the same vicinity.
  • Or sometimes you never find the crystal again – its just up & left. It’s gone. It has disappeared, never to be heard from again.

This is a very common question I get asked on a fairly frequent basis and there are a few ways to answer it…

My Current Favorites | Crystals & Otherwise

Hibiscus Moon amethyst, blogging, Crystal Goodness, Videos 53 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve done a video like this … and I’ve noticed these have become quite popular now…for people to do “monthly favorites”

Personally, I kind of waffle back & forth on if I should do one of these again OR not.

It would be great if you could definitely let me know in the comments  (down at the bottom of this page), what you think… if I should do more of this? If this is sparkly enough for you?  Also, if you have recommendations for other stuff I should check out, please share with me!

 

First Favorite!  You know it has to be a crystal to kick this off right? 
Crystals
My favorite crystal right now is Papagoite, and I just finally got a hold of some.:D

This is a difficult mineral to find, much like Ajoite.  You may have heard me go on and on about Ajoite being very difficult to find in a recent blog post, They both come from the same area; the Messina mine in South Africa, but Papagoite is even more rare than Ajoite!

I’ve just recently got two pieces;  one had a very little little bit of the Papagoite tell-tale color in it (bright blue) and the other piece has a little too with a bit more color saturation.

This blue is really hard to describe. It’s very vibrant. It’s less green than Ajoite and the top one in the above pic actually has a phantom within.

Phantoms allow you to move you to the next level…deeper levels of meditation, for example. Phantoms are a natural phenomenon that I teach more about in my Advanced Crystal Masters course + I also created this blog + video about phantom crystals quite some time ago over here. (be forewarned…that’s some really old content from me!)
Rings Please
Then I have my favorite jewelry at the moment.  Yup, in the vid I’m wearing a lot of different jewelry!  Some bracelets made of coral, some carnelian…but my favorites right now are my tiger’s eye ringsI really love these rings.

The one on my pointer finger I just found on clearance in a store for just 5 bucks!  Sparkle Score!!!

And my other tiger’s eye ring (on my ring finger) I had made by an artist on Etsy who unfortunately no longer has her shop or I’d tell you where to get it. 🙁

They’re both Big & Chunky….just like I like ’em.

Aromatherapy Scentsation (+ crystals of course)

Next fav is an essential oil blend called Terrashield made by doTERRA.

BTW, I don’t endorse any particular essential oil brand. I just look for high quality 100% pure essential oils, preferably organic, sustainably crafted & fair trade. 

So, Terrashield is a bug repellent blend and right now, where I live, there’s a lot of little bugs called “no-see-‘ums”.  They’re worse than mosquitoes with their bite that hurt instantly!  A couple of days later you get little welts too. Lovely.

I like to use this Terrashield blend.  It’s really really effective for keeping them at bay. Then I use a little Amethyst along with it; a great insect repelling combo!

I also like to get those little bottles of gemstone chips, you know, the ones that nobody ever knows what to do with?  Well, they’re great for putting a few chips into your essential oil so you can create a special little crystal-infused blend.
Crystal Hottie

My next favorite is actually a Crystal Hottie. ? She’s one of our Facebook commenters & she also happens to be one of our Certified Crystal Healers…and she’s always coming over to my Facebook page and leaving lovely beautiful comments. She’s really active on there…the wonderful Terry Hicks CCH!

Whooohoo! Terry, you’re one of my favorites right now because you always leave such joyful, wonderful, positive comments on page that I am so grateful to receive.

If I’m ever not feeling right in some way, I go over to my Facebook page and I’m sure to see a comment from you & they’re always so sweet, lovely & uplifting, so thank you for that!♥
Mermaid Mojo

Then we have my new mermaid stamp.  Yes, I know, nothing to do with crystals! 

I found this mermaid beauty in a local crafty shop.  It was kind of pricey @ $9.50 but it’s the cutest thing ever!  And, I’ve been stamping this thing all over the freakin’ place.

It’s kind of big and obnoxious for a stamp but she is a mermaid…so it’s totally OK! ?

Hello?

Remember the old school telephone?  Those of you in my courses know that I harp on and on about getting zapped by electromagnetic radiation and electromagnetic fields,  and how we can use crystals to mitigate that

…but you know what?

Your cell phones are probably the worst culprit that you’re most susceptible to…really really bad to keep up to your ear all the time. Really.
Don’t use your cell phones for long conversations.  You just don’t want that shizzle right up near your head for long periods of time.
Best to minimize use with them as much as you can. 

If you do have to have a long conversation on your mobile you can use something like this old school looking receiver and you plug it right into your cell phone! Takes care of that problem.

It comes in a variety of fun color options.  My brother actually gave mine to me. Thoughtful guy!

When I’m at home I have a landline,  so I don’t use my cell phone for any at-home telephone convos. But if you do…if you think you’re going to need to use your cell phone for a long period of time this is a great solution. By using this little sucker, you can keep the cell phone away from your head, at a safer distance.  Not safe, but safer. 
Kind of like safe sex there is no such thing as safe sex, there’s safer sex.  😉

Again nothing to do with crystals…just a favorite.
Crystal Bio-Belt
Back to the crystals. I’ve talked about this in a video before but it’s still a favorite and I’ve been using it a lot lately so I have to tell you about it again.

It’s the bio-belt made by the same company that makes bio-mat but they stopped making them for a while.  So I have mine and people would ask me where I got it and I couldn’t refer them anywhere b/c they weren’t making them at the time. 

But now, they are back at it and offering it again!

This is a belt filled with gem stones of all different kinds of crystals.  Unlike the bio-mat which is all amethyst, the bio-belt has all kinds of different crystals and you get to wrap it around you like a belt. 

You do need to plug it in & initially need to be near an outlet when using this.  But then…you can unplug & just get up and walk around after it’s heated up. However, I’ll often use it when I’m sitting at my desk. 

And, once again, addressing those electromagnetic fields…they’ve taken care of that b/c the bio-belt has a special electromagnetic frequency mitigator that makes it so that the electromagnetic frequencies are harmless to you. Yup, very cool! 

It also has a little controller attached to it so you can change the temp or turn the power off completely & continue to receive the gemmy benefits. Yep, after it’s heated up for like five minutes you can turn it off and its stays warm for up to an hour later.

I absolutely love this thing because it’s portable, allowing you to get stuff done while you’re still getting the crystal healing treatment from the vibrational frequencies of the crystals….and you’re not required to lie down…unless you want to.

Silica Gel

And the last favorite thing I want to talk about today is Silica Gel.  There are different brands, so you want to go ahead and check the reviews & make sure it’s one that you’d like to use. 

This is 1 kind that I use…

and then there’s also another one that I like from Earth Shift products here…

Yes, it’s the same type of silica that quartz crystals are made of: silicon dioxide!. 🙂

I take this internally & use it many smoothie & gem elixir recipes. 

In 1 tablespoon you get 420 milligrams of silica!  I like to take this mineral supplement daily, one tablespoon daily.

The reason I like taking this is because all your cell walls are made of silica and it’s been noted in scientific studies that people who have higher levels of silica actually stave off lots of different dis-eases. Check it out for yourself!

Silica directly helps with:

  • connective tissue
  • hair
  • skin
  • nails

***Now I want to hear from you please***

In the comments below can you please tell me: 

Should I do videos like this every once in a while?  A little more often?  How sparkly are my Current Favorites? Did I really go too far off track with stuff that was unrelated to crystals, listed too many, do you want to hear more about that kind of stuff?  Or should we just keep it to crystals only? 

Please let me know! Thank you!

Crystal Blessings,

9 Signs You May be a Crystal Hoarder | Part 1

Hibiscus Moon blogging, Crystals, Everyday/Personal Stuffs 59 Comments

Have you seen or heard of that show “Hoarders“?

OR perhaps you know of some hoarders in your life.  Some of us have family members or loved ones that just popped into our heads, right? 

OR…are you getting that little niggly feeling that perhaps YOU might be a Crystal Hoarder?

Hey, it’s OK if you are…many of us get that feeling. I know b/c I hang with a pretty crystal-obsessed bunch of which I may be the worst obsessor of them all. 😉

OK, I know I like to joke around…but this is serious shizzle here. Watch this …

Sharon could be me

…she could be you.

It’s not comfortable to think about but yeah, she’s one of us Crystal Hotties!
**Sharon, if you’re reading this…you are loved, you’re one of us & we’re here to support you.**
I know from experience that it can be all too easy for this passion of ours to take on a life of its own and before you realize it, you’ve amassed a huge collection of stones & rocks you barely ever use…if at all.

Some may be packed away, some may be collecting dust or you may just have too damn many!

There’s no denying that there are just so many beautiful crystals & gemstones out there! Many that you might feel a strong pull toward or an inextricable connection to….or a compulsion to collect THEM ALL!

If you take a look around your space & realize that you have more crystals than you do flat surfaces, it’s very possible that you’ve entered the realm of a Crystal Hoarder, rather than that of a Crystal Healer or a Crystal Collector.

It’s much like any addiction…yeah I said it: ADDICTION…buying crystals just makes us damn happy…in the short term anyway.

Hey, maybe you have all good intentions…you’ve got all these crystals, but you’re just not sure what to do with them. If that’s you…I’ve got a blog post that can help with that over here.
Justifying your HUGE Collection with a Rational Reason
It’s a valuable investment. Right?

Some justify their compulsion with this sort of thinking…
“Well, this crystal collection I have is worth a lot of money! It’s an INVESTMENT.”
Hate to break it to ya, but it just don’t work like that. Metaphysical woo-woo’s like you & I who are willing to pay top dollar for an entire collection are VERY few & far between. Like a “needle in a hey stack” far between.

So you think…
“Oh well, you know…those geeky mineral collectors will def. pay top dollar for my sparkly collection!”
Think again!

If your collection is not kept pristine, all in boxes with proper mineral labels then your collection has a ZERO dollar value to them.

And usually there’s a big difference between the minerals that geo-geeky mineral collectors are interested in and the kind us WOO-FOLK are into.

Annnnnnd…unless you plan on selling each specimen individually & know a whole lot of geology about it, most mineral dealers looking to purchase the entire lot will only be willing to give you from 50%-1%  of the value of the entire collection (yeah! I know redick!…and depressing.)

So forget that whole “investment” idea.  Just let that one go…

[Let’s take a little break to look at a snippet of my “higher end” cabinet collection pieces below:]

9 Signs You’re a Crystal Hoarder
This may come off as funny, but for some of us these are very real scenarios…ahem…personal experiences included here!

  • You consider yourself a Crystal Junkie who has their very own Rock Dealer…”Say my name.” (you know I had to squeeze in a Breaking Bad reference in here!)
  • Your monthly bill at your local or online rock shop beats your monthly food bill
  • You’re thinking/talking about adding on an addition to your home…you know…a sacred space Crystal Room. You’d rather have that Crystal Room than the extra bathroom your family so needs to get ready in a timely manner in the morning.  Yes, I seriously considered this.
  • You’re embarrassed by it & avoid letting others see or know about it…like the full extent of it. I know we really shouldn’t care what others think about us, but often times this embarrassment creeps in as a way to actually help us out. It may be a sign that this is something you need to take a closer look at b/c you’re feeling badly about having over-collected or over-spent & you may need some support in dealing with this issue.
  • You keep acquiring more crystals, but don’t really use them or properly display the ones you already have.
  • You regularly empty your bank account on MORE CRYSTALS, maxing out credit cards & incurring extreme debt over them.
  • You know you have what you need somewhere…but your collection is so big or so disorganized you can’t find it. 
  • You have obsessive thoughts or fears of running out of a crystal, misplacing it or getting rid of it & then needing it later
  • You have a really hard time getting rid of the crystals you really know you should get rid of: like duplicates, ones you never use, or simply ones that you know really aren’t for you….but you just can’t bring yourself to part with them. 
  • If you’re seeing yourself as a hoarder & think you may like some helpful tips, stay tuned b/c next week here on my blog I’ll be delivering just that.

    Now, keep in mind… you can still have tons of crystals & not be a hoarder.

    So how do we tell the diff?
    Harmless Crystal Lover or Hoarder; Which are You?
    Signs of a healthy Crystal Lover & collector:

    • You have a sense of pride about your crystal collection + showing it to others; experiencing joy & gratitude in displaying them & you’re happy to show n’ tell
    • Your crystals are kept clean, well-inventoried, cared for & organized
    • You have a strong sense of accomplishment & satisfaction when adding to your collection; rather than dread, loathing or self-disappointment
    • You carefully budget your time, space allotment & the money devoted to your crystal collecting
    • You make great use of your collection, you work with it regularly, finding it to be quite practical & functional

    Let it be known that this is a fine line I often find myself walking between: Crystal Lover & Hoarder.
    Real talk here. My crystal-collection-mindset is something I have to remember to be aware of & work on all the time. I don’t think there’ll ever come a time when I just won’t need to pay attention to it b/c that is exactly when my collection will get seriously OUT OF CONTROL!

    I know it & own it.

    So what usually happens is I’ll sneak over into the “Crystal Hoarder” department, realize it (b/c I’m regularly assessing myself), clear out some of my collection back down to a more practical & manageable collection (more on that coming up next week) and then get myself back on the Lover side…for a while anyway. 😉

    This ended up being a HUGE topic that I had a lot to say about so Part 2 on:  ‘What to do if you think you may be a Crystal Hoarder’ is here. 🙂 

    Let me know in the comments if anything I wrote about here sparked off an “aha” for you. Do you have Crystal Hoarder tendencies? Do you see yourself as a Crystal Lover or a Crystal Hoarder?

    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.)

    Keep reading here:  https://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/himalayan-salt-lamps/
    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.

    Keep reading here:  https://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/shungite/

     
    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.

    Keep reading here:  https://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/crystals-for-self-esteem/
    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?

    Keep reading here:  https://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/working-with-toxic-crystals/
    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

    Keep reading here: https://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/power-of-quartz/
    6. How Carnelian is Bringing “Sexy” Back + a FREE Gift for You!  (Total juicy-ness!)
    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!

    Keep reading here & don’t forget to grab your FREE GIFT!:  https://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/carnelian-sacral-chakra/
    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.
  • Keep reading here: https://hibiscusmooncrystalacademy.com/crystals-for-children/
    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?
