Why is there so much conflicting Crystal Info out there?

Hibiscus Moon book, Crystals 15 Comments

I am constantly being asked:

Why do you say 1 thing about a crystal while a book or another teacher may say something completely different?

Even the books sometimes conflict in the info they’re giving out.

The fact is that, YES…many crystal books tell us totally different things about the properties of crystals.

So how the heck do we know which ones to go by?
Sifting & Filtering
Chick Pea, please be prepared to sift through tons of random or conflicting info (or even completely bunk internet info with no credibility).

Remember to always consider your source!…the Internet is like the Wild West and ANYONE can say ANYTHING they want without any policing. It’s up to you to not just swallow everything thrown at you hook, line & sinker just b/c someone said it.
You need to do your own research, your own due diligence & then run it through your own intuitive filter.
Does this info resonate for you? Yeah, even the shizzle I’m teaching you…do the same. I don’t care WHO it is that you’re getting the info from.

Over the years, I have spent quite a bit of time & energy doing this for myself. I had to learn from trial & error (over many years) what was bunk info or just wasn’t going to work for me.

And bear in mind, that was eons ago when there was a lot less info out there than there is now. 😉

Crystal info was harder to come by on the Internet. I’m talkin’ about the days of AOL and then MySpace….heeee…remember that?

Also, be prepared to spend lots of time experimenting & researching on your own. You’ve got to be prepared to invest the resources to do this: time, energy & possibly funds too.

I did it.

Still do it…but that’s what I do.

And I’m happy to do it. Over the Moon actually!

I’m not going to sit here & tell you that this part is easy. It’s not.

It’s difficult for someone to:

  • sift through the crystal myths & facts 
  • then figure out what resonates for you; what rings true for your inner knowing
  • & then decide who to rely on for your sparkly info so you can move forward & apply it.

Bad news is; no one can do that part for you, Crystal Hottie. You have to do it for yourself. 
Short Cuts?
Good News!  Once you’ve invested the time in doing that, then you can rely on your chosen source for your info & there are some short cuts to be had (b/c your carefully chosen reliable source has already done some of the leg work for you). Then you can move along a bit faster with your crystal education…if you’d like to.

Please be prepared that you may possibly waste time on crystal healing teachings & methods that may or may not work for you. No way to know until you try them out for yourself.

It’s not to say that this information is incorrect or full on BS. That’s not what I’m saying at all.

You just need to proceed cautiously to learn what is correct for YOU.

I’ve found most of the free internet info is based on regurgitated book info. Not all…but most. And then it sort of becomes like a game of telephone; where by the time the message goes through a few reiterations it’s so damn distorted it’s nothing like the original message that was conveyed. Sheeesh!

As for crystal books, most of the book-info out there is based on either general properties that have been passed down from ancient info (that applies to MOST of the population) OR it was channeled by the author or received in a meditation or even by doing their own personal work with the crystal, thereby making that info personal to them.
Can you now see why I feel it’s so important to go with your own personal intuition for your own personal crystal use?
My Crystal Book Reco’s
BTW…I’ve read just about every crystal book out there!

I’ve taken the time, energy & money to curate your must-have list of the best most effective Creme de la creme books & resources with accurate scientific info.

PLEASE NOTE: Yes, there may be some VERY POPULAR crystal books that seem quite obviously absent from my list & there’s a very good reason for that. They simply didn’t meet my criteria. Either there was conflicting confusing information, inaccurate scientific data or it simply didn’t resonate with my inner knowing.
So please don’t ask me why I didn’t include so & so’s super popular book. Thanks! 😉
You don’t need to agree with my list, but I want to put this out there again b/c so many often ask for my recommendations. This is an older blog/video…my recommendations have not changed (like the highly evolved shark of the ocean, perfect in its design so no need to change).

Yes, I’m really confident recommending that list to you. 🙂

Have you read any of my book recommendations? Do you agree or disagree? Tell me in the comments below.

Crystal Blessings & Happy Researching!


P.S. If what & the way I teach resonates with you, maybe you’d like to join me in my Certified Crystal Healer Course. If that sounds like something you may be interested in you can get on my Wait List here so you’ll get first notice of the next time I open the course.

What’s a Good Crystal Mix for your Bedroom?

Hibiscus Moon amethyst, bedroom, book, sleep, Videos 22 Comments

Hey, Crystal Hottie!

How are you doing today? I have another crystal question to go over today in our video.

I have blogged before about 5 Tips to a Better Night’s Sleep…the Crystal Healing Way but this blog is specifically about a great crystal mix for a bedroom.

Obviously, in your bedroom, unless you’re going the romantic route, that’s another route you can take (I have some suggestions in my Crystal Grids Template Package)… you’re probably looking to bring in calm serene energy, b/c that would be a sacred sleeping space for you.

You’re going into dream time.

You also want to foster the right sort of energy to recharge your battery

You want it to be a place where you can relax & sleep and have really nice healthy, nurturing dreams.
So here are the  crystals I recommend for bringing relaxing calming energies to your  bedroom:

1. So, definitely amethyst for one.

If you know how to create a crystal grid, you can put 1 under your bed or beside your bed. (Check out this older vid of our “under the bed grid”:)

If you’re not into grids, you can simply use an amethyst point or you can choose a large amethyst geode, like I have in my bedroom.  That’ll  radiate the nice kind of energy that you want in your bedroom for a relaxing, sanctuary type of retreat space.

This is a large crystal vignette that radiates that type energy into our master bedroom:


2. Clear quartz is always great for enhancing the energies. If you already have amethyst going on in your bedroom, but you feel it’s too small or just not doing enough, you can  enhance + amp up those energies w/ a clear quartz piece.  I always like to have a few clusters of those in my bedroom.


3. Rose quartz can add a nice calming energy for slumber. You can have large pieces of rose quartz or you can incorporate smaller pieces into a crystal grid. Rose quartz is something I always have by my bed because it’s just a special companion for me.

4. Another crystal you could include is lepidolite.  Partly due to it’s lithium elemental content, it’s very good for calming your mind & encouraging sleep, ushering in good dreams as well. Just what we’re looking for here.

[caption id="attachment_7398" align="aligncenter" width="597"] lepidolite[/caption]

So that’s a nice mix to have for your bedroom. I have more tips here in an older blog post on crystals specifically for sleep.
SIDENOTE: Book Review
In the video above, I did a quick book review at the end.

I really liked this one, The Essential Guide to Crystals: Tap into the healing power of crystals by Golnaz Alibagi.

I was really impressed by this book because I always, always gravitate to the books that have some science in it & this one delivered.

It also has great colored pictures of the stones, diagrams & exercises that you can do. It’s organized by sections; one on mind, body & spirit. It’s just one of those books that I think is really good to have in your personal crystal library.

So, what crystals do you have in your Bedroom to create your sacred sanctuary?  Do you also have a Crystal Grid?

I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!

Crystal Blessings!

How to Get What You Want with a Crystal Grid

Hibiscus Moon blogging, book, Crystal Grids, law of attraction 7 Comments

One of my most popular past blog posts is How to Make a Crystal Grid. People tell me they refer to it again & again.

This all started when I started doing crystal grid videos showing everyone how I did them & how well they were working for me. I mean you could see it all unfolding as everything I gridded for happened & played out. I documented for all to see.
Because of that I’ve been asked to:

  • show my process in more detail (blog, vlog, etc.)
  • then teach a class on it
  • then write a book about it
  • then I built my entire Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy around it!

So to say I have MUCH RESPECT for crystal grids & what we can do with them is an understatement! But there’s another important ingredient to add to the mix; CLEAR INTENTION. I speak about this all the time but I felt the need to really emphasize that here in a blog post b/c peeps are still asking me “How do I get what I want?”

Tesla Can Help You GET What You Want

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
  ~Nikola Tesla

That Tesla-Guy…he was totally tapped in! He really understood what’s going on here. And he understood that your thoughts are frequency. So the “WANT” frequency is not what you should transmit if you actually expect to get that thing. You want to transmit that you KNOW it’s already happening. The energy, frequency & vibration all have to synch up & match…then you’ll manifest your desires.

My clear understanding & faith of how this works is 100% the reason why I’m doing what I’m doing now…living my DREAM! And I am so grateful for being gifted with this knowledge.

People ask me about the crystal grid blog posts & videos all the time because I was very authentic & transparent with what I was doing & you saw the results…PROOF! Isn’t that what everyone wants?

When I was happily still a science teacher, my sacred crystal biz started to balloon (yes, intention & crystal grids involved there). It just started getting bigger & bigger & bigger. There was no way I could do both equally well. I had to make a choice. I did both jobs for 3 years & then I realized something had to give. I needed to make a decision; 1 or the other. I loved doing both so the decision wasn’t easy.

See, at first I was really torn. I was very happy teaching.  I loved my job… teaching science? Ha! That’s my absolute bliss & joy. I love the teenagers I worked with. A lot of people would go, “Oh my gosh that age group. How can you work with them?” I love them! I love their energy & just everything about them.

I got to go to work & have fun everyday. (BTW, nothing has changed.)

So I always loved my job & I was torn. I did a crystal grid to help me clearly see my path & I was totally transparent about it all…again blogging, vlogging, etc….showing you along the way.

My grid allowed me to clearly contemplate & then decide what I needed to do.  Obviously, that was the sacred crystal biz. Once I made that decision, that’s it. All bets were off.

I said,

“Okay, gloves are off. Time to get serious now, crystal grid time, let’s go!”

What? Another one?! Yep, another grid to really set a good foundation. And, of course…it worked.
It’s all about Intention
Any crystal grid that I’ve ever done, I always do it with maximum intention. A lot of times people leave me comments & say,

“Yeah you posted something on citrine and it’s going to make me feel better. I got 1 & it didn’t work.”

Hold up. It’s not just grab a citrine. It’s a holistic & multi-layered approach:

  • Energy
  • Frequency
  • Vibration

Your intention is all wrapped up in that. How much effort did you put into it as well? If you’re going to be battling it or sitting there being the maximum skeptic the whole time, it probably isn’t going to work. Because your mindset & the vibrational frequency aren’t in alignment. So forget it.

Now, some people don’t need crystals to do any of this. But if you prefer to use crystals as tools & supports that help further along your desire, then crystals can help with that…& again it’s another vibrational frequency that you’re layering on together to amplify the whole effect.

Some people like to do vision boards. Crystal grids, for me, act as a vision board. It’s a vision board of a different type. It’s my vision expressed in sacred geometry with the crystals. It’s just a different way of getting your message through the telephone wire to source energy. You’re putting it out there to the Universe that this is not “what you want”…this is what you’re going to do!

You’ve got to direct it. Get clear on your intent. “This is exactly how I’m laying it out. This is the plan, Stan!”

That’s a big part of it. When I set out to do these crystal grids my intention is ON. I never say a wishy-washy, “I would love, I wish, I hope, I’m gonna try.” 

I’m a big Star Wars fan. You know, I tell this to people all the time.

Yoda says, “No! Try not! Do or do not. There is no ‘try’.” You need to get that word out of your vocabulary.

Are you doing this thing or are you not doing it? Your thought process here is EVERYTHING.

Below is my new FOCUS crystal grid…spurred on by my Advanced Crystal Master Students (they’ve been gridding up a storm)!!  I created this grid to help enhance my business focus as I go into contemplation time about what goals to work on next.
Focus Grid Components

  • That’s Big Baby (my large clear crystal quartz point in the center)
  • sitting on top of a Flower of Life ceramic coaster
  • surrounded by small clear quartz laser points for amplification
  • green aventurine tumblies
  • rainbow fluorite octahedrons
  • plus my large sea-foam green fluorite front & center
  • I also included a heartfelt handwritten affirmation under the center stone
  • all arranged on my Flower of Life crystal grid cloth (for those that ask it’s sold on Zazzle here).

Of course…this grid is already ROCKIN’ the CASBAH!!

Crystal grids amplify everything for me. I mean big time. Anytime I do a crystal grid (I don’t post all of them because some of them are quite personal)…but every single one of them have worked.

And the ones I’ve blogged post about (in my blog, newsletter, Facebook & on YouTube)–  you have seen what’s transpired from them – there it is. Truth is in the pudding.

And the value of a crystal grid goes far beyond the material wants & desires. You can quite literally change your life!

So, Chick Pea! Have you done a crystal grid that rocked it? I would love for you to share your experience in the comments below. 🙂

Rock on, Crystal Hottie!
