Q&A: Chakra Stone Set

Hibiscus Moon chakras, Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work 8 Comments

Today’s post is about putting together a chakra stone set. You can put 1 together relatively inexpensively if you know what stones to go for.

Here’s a question that I recently received:

Q:

  • I’m putting together my chakra stone set & am curious if it’s best to use the same style/shape stone for the set? For example should they all be tumbled? Or can they be a mix of tumbled & points?
  • Also, when buying a pendulum, which stone is best? Should we use our intuition or is there one stone that is best for healing?
  •  
    A:
    For your chakra set, it really won’t matter. Get what you can get. Natural is always best but sometimes you just can’t find them in that particular stone. If you have an easy choice though, always go natural! That being said, here’s an example set I usually recommend to all my students:

    The stones pictured above are very easy to find & are inexpensice. I usually like to have a choice of 2 stones for each chakra on hand except for the crown here…no specific reason for that:

    • Root chakra (red): red jasper + hematite
    • Sacral chakra (orange but represented here by the brown bag): orange calcite & carnelian
    • Solar plexus chakra (yellow but represented here by the camel bag): citrine & tiger’s eye
    • Heart chakra (green): rose quartz & green aventurine
    • Throat chakra (blue): blue lace agate & sodalite
    • Third Eye chakra (indigo): amethyst & lepidolite
    • Crown chakra (white or light lilac but represented here by the black bag): clear quartz
    • I also have an amethyst pendulum pictured here for sensing energies & balancing each chakra (we teach how to do that in our course)

    As for the pendulum, you don’t need amethyst…get what’s calling to you most. Yep, that’s what will work best for you!

    How To Flow Energy Using a Crystal

    Hibiscus Moon chakras, cleansing, Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, energy work 3 Comments

    Hey Crystal Pea Pods!!

    Let’s talk about energy & chakra flow today.

    There are many ways to direct energy with a crystal but I’m going to focus on a 2-way flow in this post…specifically using a double-terminated quartz crystal.

    [caption id="attachment_3845" align="aligncenter" width="300"] The marked areas on this crystal are pointing out enhydro bubbles of water within the double-terminated point. This was a SWEET piece![/caption]

    Double terminated clear quartz points come in really handy for getting stuck energy to flow on through your chakras. “Double-terminated” means that the crystal has reached a terminated point on each end. That means that they’ve grown pretty much unrestricted & not connected to a rock matrix.

    If you have 2 of these babies, try holding one in each hand, closing your eyes…make note of how they immediately  calm you down.

    Tweetable (click to tweet): “Flow some energy…use a crystal”

    If you’re a well-grounded individual, you can also place 1 on your third eye & the other on your crown chakra to enhance intuition (third eye chakra) & your spiritual connection (crown chakra) during a meditation.

    My favorite use for double-terms is to place them between 2 chakras on the body to clear out energy blocks.  Each terminated point allows for a 2 way street of energy flow. 🙂 Here’s a video I did with my hunko-husbo Frankie a while back demonstrating this (he’s very sweet & is always willing to be my model for these demos…heeheee):

    So, what have we learned today?

    Double Terminated Clear Quartz = Chakra Energy Plumber!

    That’s just 1 way to flow the enregy. There are so many ways to do this & learn about many in our Certified Crystal Healer Course. So give this a try…see how you like it.

    P.S. Please tell us if you have another way to flow energy using crystals. We’d love for you to share below in the comments.

    Chrysocolla; Our Guide through Fear, Paranoia, Uncertainty & Anger

    Hibiscus Moon chakras, Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Crystals 7 Comments

    Today we have another guest blog post by Shellee Moon LaCombe, CCH, one of our very own Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers!!

    Take it away Shellee!
    Beautiful Chrysocolla
    Like many souls on this Earth plane at this time of 2012, most of us are experiencing drastic changes in our lives. For a lot of us, life feels like a whirlwind, as we are realizing we have out grown our old patterns of belief, yet are fearful and anxious about what the future holds. Though it is sometimes through life’s many storms that we grow, it’s hard to imagine at times the rainbow that waits in its wake.

    Through all the fear, paranoia, uncertainty and anger we are experiencing at this time, there is Chrysocolla.

    Chrysocolla came into my life two years ago and told me she would help me find the courage inside to brave the storm.  The qualities she told me she possessed are:

    • She is a feminine energy, but balances both male and female
    • Soothes the heart chakra when it is “on fire” with fear, stress and conflict
    • Calms panic attacks brought on by the adversities in life
    • Helps you to understand the role YOU play on your journey, understanding your patterns of behavior
    • Calms the seas of emotions

    She also wants you to remember how important it is to be gentle with yourself, that sometimes it’s OK to withdraw from the world in a healthy way from people, places and events so that the healing may occur, and to forgive yourself for doing so. She may be placed on the throat chakra so you may express exactly what needs to be said, yet she’ll let you know when silence is golden.

     

    She may be placed on the heart chakra for soothing heart ache and reducing blood pressure, and on the solar plexus to calm the adrenaline glands and to “pull out” others energies, as well as heal stomach aches and ulcers. Chrysocolla may also be placed on the root chakra for when fears of safety and security arise.

    I have passed on the knowledge I learned about Chrysocolla to others that are in crisis, who seemed to benefit from her gentle energy as well.  My personal storm has calmed, and my life is going in directions I only dreamed of. Beautiful Chrysocolla is one of many crystals that I have to thank for that. She is a dear friend that you can count on, and if you haven’t worked with her before, and you or your clients are experiencing life changing events, I strongly recommend her.

    Working with crystals is all about trust. I trust what the stones are telling me, and this is just my personal experience with Chrysocolla.

    Take from this information what resonates with you, but please enjoy your own experiences with crystals. Some of the information I receive I am able to verify in books, some I am not. Please don’t get discouraged if you can’t validate your experience in a book.
    Trust what the stones are telling YOU!

    4 Sparkly Ways to Beat Pessimism

    Hibiscus Moon anxiety, chakras, Crystal Grids, Crystals, Gem Elixirs, meditation 19 Comments

    Sparkles + crystals + pessimism? Whaaaa?
    It’s not always hunky-dory ♥’s & glitter ’round here. That would be totally unrealistic. So let’s get real for a sec.

    I’m having a down day…this is very rare for me but its here just the same.

    Today is my day during the week where I sit down & write my blog posts for the following week along with my newsletter. I usually have 40-50 blog post drafts floating around in my WordPress dashboard at any one time & I filter through them, slowly adding to them here & there as things come up; little gems that go perfectly with the topic. Then on Fridays I sift through & see what tickles my fancy to flesh out & finish up for the following week’s posts.

    Today, while sifting through I saw my draft post with a working title of  “Beating Pessimism” & I thought “Nahhhh…not a good day to work on that one. Not in the mood.” Then I did a mental slap in the forehead…

    “Dope! Today is THE PERFECT day to work this shiz!

    You need it!”

    OK so here we go. Ready?

    You know…pessimism (glass-is-always-half-empty-attitude) has been linked to a higher risk of dying before age 65. So that’s a pretty good reason to stop this Debbie Downer attitude right now.

    When we let our positive side SHINE  we simply feel better.

    Is it b/c we’re not stressed out or anxious? Is it the cause or the effect? Chicken or the egg?

    Don’t know.

    Who cares.

    It doesn’t really matter does it?

    All that’s important is that it goes hand in hand. See, when we have the bright positive, sparkly attitude, we rack up a slough of  good health side effects:

    • boosted immune system
    • less stress due to less production of the stress hormone cortisol
    • reduction of chronic diseases from decreased inflammation
    • PLUS…it just FEELS a whole lot damn better (& you can get rid of those little frown lines between your brows…added bonus!)

    So if you’re feeling the Woe-Is-Me Stuffs Creeping up on you try some of these ideas:
    1. Take good care of yourself. Eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly & get enough sleep. We all know it. Depleting any of these wreaks havoc on our attitudes & health. (Lack of sleep is partly my reasoning for being in the pits today…not my fault…but you don’t want to hear me yammer on about that!)

    2. Throat Chakra Crystal Infusion. Express the emotions you’re feeling honestly yet calmly & rationally so you can effectively deal with what’s eating you. This is all about the throat chakra, baby. (And again, partly the reason for my predicament today…I didn’t do this…kept it bottled up & released it incorrectly *sigh*).

    So, my prescription to help correct this is a throat chakra healing session with either blue lace agate or a combo stone of azurite/malachite. This is the lovely free podcast I’ll be listening to while doing that meditation: Emotional Ease by Meditation Oasis. I’m also going to be drinking a gem elixir made of blue lace agate today as my only drink. All day long.

    3. Tell someone how you’re feeling. Make sure that person isn’t a negativity monger though…that could just make things worse. You need a supportive ear. If you don’t have a trusted person to talk to then journal it out…its just as good. Getting it out in various healthy ways also helps us to figure things out…sort of what I’m doing right now. *I’m making some HUGE realizations as I type this.*

    4. If the pessimism seems to creep in more often than it should, make a crystal grid focused just on this so that whenever you look at it it reminds you to look at the SPARKLY Silver-Lined side. And remember that the more you work with your grid, the better it will work for you.
    A good affirmation for such a grid could be: “I call forth my positive self & ask for the ability to see the good while expressing myself in a healthy & optimistic way.”
    OK, lots of work to do over here. I better get busy. 😉
