3 Things You Want to Know Before You Start Working with Crystals

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness, energy work 10 Comments

Are you new to working with crystals?

I’m going to share three things you want to know before you start working with crystals.

Because you want to avoid pitfalls, right? When you get started on this crystal path, you want to avoid wasting time and energy.  Why reinvent the wheel? I made a lot of mistakes when first starting out with crystals. I’ve worked through a lot of stuff and I can save you a lot of time and energy in that area, and save money which is a big one with these three things.

Now, of course, there are so many more than three things, but I just wanted to distill it down to three for you.
Are you Ready to Start Working with Crystals?
Tip Number One
Cleansing your crystals:   I’m not talking about physically cleansing today, although I do love my science and I love talking about physically cleansing crystals (depending on their Mohs hardness, there are different ways we need to treat our crystals). Today, I’m talking about energetic cleansing.

After much trial and error, I learned that there are many people who will go on and on about different methods of cleansing. And it’s really up to you in the end.  You have to choose the method that resonates with you most.

I’ve tried out all sorts of techniques like; putting them in a bowl of brown rice, put the crystals and cover them with Himalayan sea salt, put them underground, put them in water for seven days, put them in salt water for seven days, put them in the sun, put them under the moon, sage smudge them. There are so many different ways.

But after lots of trial and error, I realized sometimes we need to be mindful…

  • extra mindful, of extreme temperature changes because that can be harmful to our crystals.
  • mindful of fading certain crystals in sunlight. Some of them are very UV sensitive, so we need to be mindful of that.
  • mindful of water with crystals that have a low Mohs hardness. I’m not going to get into explaining all these little things, I have classes and other blog posts on that, so I’m trying to stay on track today.

Acoustic Vibrational Frequency
What I found is that the most practical way, while still being highly effective is acoustic vibrational frequency. That is just a fancy scientific term for sound. My goal is practical and most effective, so the highest impact for the least amount of work always wins with me and this technique meets all the criteria.
What kind of sound?
It can be any kind of sound, actually, as long as it’s high amplitude.
You want the amplitude of energy to be higher than the crystal. And that’s a fancy term for loud. We just need it to be loud. It doesn’t need to be a certain frequency. It doesn’t need to be a certain tone.
My favorite method?   It’s a crystal singing bowl.  Just ring it gently.

I really like this method because it sends those sound waves out, and it penetrates in all directions. It really gets in there and it moves, and actually physically moves, the atoms around and gets them to lockstep back into place with their base resonant frequency, or what I call the dominant oscillatory rate of the crystal, back to where it naturally is, where it’s natural vibration is.

Another favorite method of mine is a tuning fork.

Then people always ask me …
“What frequency? What tone?”
It doesn’t matter. I know that they sell certain tuning forks specifically for cleansing your crystals, and they’ll have it set at a certain frequency. Yes, there are certain frequencies that entrain certain types of vibrational frequencies.

But if you’re just looking to cleanse your crystals, the frequency of the tuning fork (or whatever you’re using) doesn’t matter. Even if it’s just your radio and a loudspeaker, high amplitude is all that’s required.  It’s that simple.  Simple, practical, and highly effective.
Tip Number Two
Confusing Crystal Names:  How do you feel about all these confusing crystal names out there? Before you start working with crystals, this is one you want to pay attention to because money in your wallet is important.  I’m assuming. And you don’t want to lose that due to confusing crystal names. Now, how does that even work? There’s a lot of confusion with the naming of crystals or the terminology, the nomenclature of our minerals.

There are trademark names.

There are marketing terms.

There are what I call woo-woo synonyms.
What are woo-woo synonyms?
They’re just names that are more appealing to us, the metaphysical market. I mean, admittedly, those woo names are really appealing, and they fetch more money. I’ve done experiments with this. I’ve taken you with me on my trips to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show and other gem and mineral shows.

I’ve shown you, in real-time; you’ve got the same mineral, you’ve got the proper geological term that everybody knows it by, it’s not confusing, and then you’ve got someone calling the same thing by some woo-woo name, and it’s marked up, exponentially marked up. They shell it out because it’s got this fancy name on it for minerals that already have a proper geological name.
Examples
I could go on and on with all the different examples. I’ll just give you a few here…

  • Azeztulite:  Which happens to be quartz masses from certain particular areas.  I’ll give them that. But if another geologist goes out and finds these quartz mass, usually, you know what they do? They grind them up, and they put them in landscape material, in different building materials, rock gardens, or they just sell them as a quartz mass. But if the right person gets a hold of it, they’ll call it azeztulite. And you have to be careful whose calling it is azeztulite because that’s a trademark term.
  • Healerite:   trademarked. What’s healerite? It’s basically a certain yellowish greenish tone of serpentine. It’s serpentine. Talk to anybody else, they’ve got the same thing for sale, and it’s going to be much cheaper because they’re calling it serpentine. Infinite is a different shade of serpentine than healerite.  So again, you call it serpentine and just sell it in different shades, and it’s going to be so much cheaper. If you know this, you’re going to save yourself a ton of money.
  • Super seven: trademarked. Super seven is a conglomeration of a cacoxenite and different minerals mixed together. But, that certain mixture has been trademarked and called super seven, but it’s been found in other places and not called super seven.
  • Zultanite:  is actually diaspore. That’s the proper geological name. You are not going to get as much money for it if you call it diaspore.

If you know of others,  put them in the comments below so other people can see them and we can learn from this.
Then there are straight up scams
This next one is just a straight up scam. I’m sorry if you feel differently about it, but I feel strongly that I need to put this information out there.

  • Andara crystals:   Have you heard of that? They’re said to be found only in northern California and South Africa, said to be high-vibrational, soul-enhancing crystals, and connected with the Lemurian or a Lemurian temple complex. Well, I did a little digging and research, and guys, I discovered they’re not a crystal, not at all. They’re just manmade glass, discarded glass. Maybe now some are making it on purpose for sale because now Andara crystals fetch so much money.

The original Andara crystal was originally found in a California dump because it’s slag glass. If you know what that is, that means it’s discarded glass from different manufacturing things. It’s the byproduct of glass manufacturing, and that’s it. Some people got together and thought it would be a great money-making scam. I’m going to straight up call it that, and giving it official certificates and things like that.

Do your own due diligence. Do your own research on that. Don’t just buy what someone’s telling you, hook, line, and sinker, because it sounds so wonderful. Do your due diligence.

Here’s a special gift for you to download my newly updated free Crystal Fakes Reference ebook.

[thrive_2step id='21832'][/thrive_2step]
Crystal Fakes
If you’ve gotten it before, I’ve updated it with new stuff. In this Guide, I’m talking about all types of crystal fakes, the more popular ones on the market and things to be watchful for. If you’re a crystal collector, you have a crystal collection or you’re out there buying crystals, you need to have this reference e-book.

Plus it’s free, so there’s no excuse not to have it. You need to have this so you can navigate the crystal shops, navigate your way on eBay, the gem shows.  To make sure you’re getting the real thing and getting what you paid for.
We don’t want to be scammed or duped by buying fakes, or buying something that we thought was one thing and it’s actually another thing. Or it’s the same thing and it’s just called something fancy and they’re asking us to pay three times as much for it. Instead, I want us to be informed.
I’m really, really passionate about that.
Tip Number Three
No woo-woo talk: Now, why would I tell somebody to go into the closet? That’s so uncool. That is so politically incorrect. Here’s the deal. When you go to a rock shop or gem show, if you’re in a metaphysical shop that’s different and you don’t need to abide by this rule at all, but if you’re at a rock shop or a gem show, zip the lip on the woo-woo talk.

Because I’m going to tell you, again, I’ve witnessed this firsthand for years, once you start working with crystals you’ll see.  The sellers are keen on this, especially at gem shows…I’ve mentioned it to you when I’ve walked around the gem shows. If they hear you or just kind of look at you, they look you up and down and they see that you’re a woo-woo type, like us.

I’m one.

We go there all dressed to the nines in all our stuff, and we look very airy-fairy, part of the woo-woo crowd, and we’re talking to the woo-woo speak, or even, gasp, asking for,
“Do you have a Lemurian Dow crystal, double-terminated Dow?”
These are metaphysical terms.

This is what I’m talking about with woo-woo talk. The second they hear that there’s the ka-ching sign or the ka-ching sound going off in their brain.  The seller’s, and they’re going ka-ching, ka-ching, ka-ching, or an S for “sucker”. They’re thinking, “I got a sucker on my hands.”
And the Prices Go Up …
Oh yes.  That crystal right there, they know what we’re talking about because they’ve studied up, even though they don’t believe (I’m not going to say this is for all sellers. There are sellers out there who are scrupulous who do believe in the metaphysical side of things. I even have a geology teacher who understands and believes in the metaphysical side of things).

I’m not saying that they all don’t believe in it, but there are sellers out there, and a lot of them, who don’t believe in it at all, but have made it their business to learn about this stuff because they understand it affects their bottom dollar.
Keep it Under Wraps
On the economy side of things, it’s all about supply and demand.   If they can supply the woo-woo community with what they’re looking for, they can ratchet up the price on that crystal.  Whereas if they’re selling to just a Joe Schmo rock hound over here, they’re not having that. They’re not paying the jacked up price. They’re going to pay the going price because they know the going price.

By the way, I give you some handy crystal shopping tips in this blog post over here.

The sellers assume, that the woo-woo community, the metaphysical community, our crystal family, doesn’t know the going price. For the most part, many of us in this community don’t. And we think, “Okay, that’s just the price you pay.”

Now, of course,  if we’re talking about a very rare crystal. If the mine has been closed. If there’s not very many of them. The price is going to be extremely high. For example, meteorites, very highly priced. It’s warranted. It makes sense. But when you’re selling me a crystal mass, you don’t even know where it’s from, and you’ve just learned that if you call this azeztulie you can sell it for $300 instead of $3.

Think about it this way … Superman didn’t walk around with his costume around the streets of the city, right? He kept the costume under wraps. For a reason. You’re going to keep your Superman or Superwoman costume under wraps so that you can get what you want at a fair price.

Does that save you money? Is this valuable information? I hope it is for you, please let me know in the comments below. And don’t forget to grab the free Crystal Fakes download

Watermelon Tourmaline Benefits: The Healing Power of Watermelon Tourmaline

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness, Everyday/Personal Stuffs 29 Comments

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!

I’ve also blogged about pink tourmaline before as 1 of the recent stones being faked in certain markets.  If you want to educate yourself about the fakes you can click over here to learn more about that.

Tourmaline, in general, has some amazing scientific properties.

 
But…today we’re talkin’ Watermelon Tourmaline…

Healing Properties
What’s so wonderful about this type of tourmaline? Well, let me tell you:

  • it speaks to the heart chakra, helping to clear out blockages & balance; doing this on 2 separate, yet related frequencies; both the green & the pink light frequency; making it doubly effective for balancing this chakra. **A watermelon tourmaline pendant can be conveniently worn over the heart for ongoing work & healing effects.**
  • note the sometimes presence of white “rind” between the pink & green; helps to keep energies of all kinds balanced
  • it’s a gemstone that invites in compassion
  • helps to dampen excessive or extreme emotions through calming
  • and it’s known to awaken and/or attract love

Healers & light workers of all kinds often turn to watermelon tourmaline due to its therapeutic versatility in healing so many different types of physical (mostly directly dealing with the heart) as well as emotional aspects. You can use it in:

  • body layouts
  • meditations
  • crystal grids
  • creating gem elixirs or essences for various purposes
  • emanate energy into a space
  • & of course, jewelry

The Thrill of the Hunt
I’ve been waiting quite a while to get 1 of these babies. You know… to find the “just right” piece for myself. I’ve even hunted for year after year in Tucson… looking for it, but never found one that really plucked my guitar strings. So I waited.

And wouldn’t you know… with all my trips out to the Tucson Gem Shows, I ended up finding this piece in a local rock shop not too far from my home. (I showcase my special piece in the above video).
**you never know where you’ll find your crystal treasures so never stop looking & don’t settle!**
[caption id="attachment_2110" align="aligncenter" width="374"] Simply scrumptious & juicy unsliced watermelon tourmaline!!! Photo by Rob Lavinsky @ irocks.com[/caption]

Oh yes…I’ve had other “watermelons” that I’ve settled for in the past…most much smaller than my PIECE. 💚
Geo-Aspects
Watermelon tourmaline can be found in Sri Lanka, Brazil, South Africa, Mozambique & Madagascar.

Tourmaline is actually known as the “chameleon” of the gem-world due to all the various colors & hues it comes in. Virtually every color & healing aspect you can think up…there’s a tourmaline for that.

They can also come in what is known as “Bi-color” or “Parti-colored”…when they express as 2 or more colors in a single crystal!

What I was looking for was the characteristic green rind followed by the white around the central pink tourmaline going almost all the way around. When the green & white rind goes all the way around perfectly…that really drives up the price due to it being aesthetically pleasing & much more rare…so be prepared. 

That’s what makes it “watermelon tourmaline”…is the pink ruby-like center, the white + then the outer green rind.

I’m so excited to finally get a piece that felt right for me.

Plus there’s a beautiful hexagon in the center! Sacred-Geo Deliciousness. 

Have you ever seen Watermelon Tourmaline?  Worn it as crystal jewelry or worked with a piece in your practice?  Please tell me in the comments below. 🙂

My Life, My Spirit, My Career: How 10 Simple Morning Rituals Helped Me Succeed

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness, Everyday/Personal Stuffs, gratefullness 21 Comments

A little while ago I shared a bit about my daily morning ritual practice on my Facebook Page & Instagram & many asked for more details. My morning ritual isn’t at all complicated & is actually pretty quick but I keep it the same each morning so now its become an ingrained habit that I don’t even need to think about very much. Comes in quite handy when I have those mornings where I’m barely conscious!

It’s really pretty simple & reminds me to savor life’s little pleasures, to be grateful while also allowing me to live in the present moment.♥

You know… your mood in the morning affects your entire day…so doing this allows me to program & set the tone for the kind of day I’m going to have, fit in some of my spiritual/manifesting/law of attraction practices.
Puts me in the right mindset for a great day ahead.

And this all happens from my bed before I even put my feet on the ground.

I do this ritual every single day & try to stick to this routine as much as I possibly can no matter where I’ve slept; hotel, visiting family, etc. 

If I’m missing some of my tools, no problemo! I just skip that step and do what I’m able to do with what I’ve got.

My 10 Step Morning Ritual

  • NIGHT PREP: The night before I usually select a stone, depending on what kind of energy vibration I want to work with from a little wooden bowl that I keep in my kitchen to make my easy gem elixir water. Since I tend to be pretty lazy, I keep a selection of crystals & essential oils within easy reach on my kitchen counter for everyday practical purposes like this.
  • I wake up and first thing I do is drink water b/c I’m parched. I keep rose quartz (usually) gem elixir water by my bedside from the night before b/c I just like to drink a lot of water. I keep it very simple: just plop a rose quartz tumblie into my water-glass…
  • Totally unrealted but…first thing I usually see when I open my eyes besides my hubbie is Ms. Topaz usually in this very position…I can barely stand such cuteness! ♥

    3. Next I’ll do some quick neck stretches b/c I’ve learned that if I don’t do these everyday I’ll end up with more “pulled neck muscle” pains than I’d like to deal with from sleeping wrong or something like that. I do the first 4 on this page. Now that I do these 30 second neck stretches every morning, the “neck-pulls” only seems to happen about 1/year. Still not great but better than every 3 months or so! 

    Next, I’ll pick up one of 2 crystals I typically have by my bedside: a clear quartz point or my rose quartz chunk-buddy and sit up cross-legged on the bed with a straight spine, eyes closed.  (***Topaz usually climbs into my lap at this point and purrrrrrrrrs***) I hold the crystal in 1 or both palms comfortably. With crystal in hand I’ll launch into several Energetic Hygiene Exercises:

    4. Organizing my energy: I’ve heard several metaphysical teachers teach this technique with some slight differences. Here’s how I do it. As I take a DEEEEEP inhale I’ll say to myself: “I call back all my energy to me.” (while visualizing any lost bits of scattered energy floating back to me & thunking into place where they belong…like a magnet attracting iron filings). Then with a full exhale, expelling all the air out of my lungs I say to myself, “And I release any energy that is not my own.” And I visualize anything that I’ve picked up in my energy field being released. And finally I say “I am now whole.” And I visualize my body’s aura cleansed & glowing. 🙂

    5. Now it’s time for my Energetic Shower. I visualize & sense the crystal in my hand beaming energy up to me (this energy is like sparkling glowing rays of light with rainbow twinkles in it…you can visualize it any way you like but this is what I see) + flowing through my body, releasing out the top of my head at my crown chakra & then gently flowing back down around me like a fountain…then flowing back up under and through my root chakra in a continuous loop. I actually visualize it around me like a twinkling flowing egg-shape of light flowing out & around & around. I do that for about 30 seconds. Longer if I really feel I need it. Because sometimes you just do.

    6. While still seated & holding my crystal now I send energy to whatever crystal grids I have set up at the time. I usually have a couple going in another room of the house so I simply visualize it and beam energy to it. (I usually visualize this beam as neon red energy….like a softly glowing laser beam. I’ve tried changing the color in my mind’s eye but it’s always red & I cannot change it. I’m curious what you see if you try this). It’s very quick. Takes about 5 seconds. It’s just a little crystal grid TLC.

    7. Next, in my mind, I’ll go through my list of things to be grateful for. There are many but I’ll usually think of 3. If it’s a day where I can’t think of much…you know those days, I’ll think of how I’m grateful for the bed I’m sleeping in, the air I’m breathing & the things or beings that surround me. You can always think of something, Jelly Bean. 😉

    8. Next I’ll think about what I’m currently working on manifesting in my life. I usually have a larger goal or two that I’m working on bringing into my reality, something that I’m deeply committed to; big life-changing goals & ambitions. I’m a Capricorn, don’t you know? 😉 So I’ll spend 30 seconds visualizing in detail my manifestation in full bloom, as if it’s already materialized. BOOOOM!

    9. Then I do my five-minute journal entries.

    Now I’m not one for free-form journaling…at all. I LOVE this journal b/c it’s very to the point, tells you exactly what to write and let’s you get it done quickly. It also gives you some inspiration for the day in the form of a motivational quote or a little challenge.

    You complete it each morning (gets me off on the right foot for the day, sets my goals in sight and even gives me another assist with my manifesting) as well as each night (so I can do a quick re-cap & reminds me again to be grateful)….so nourishing to the spirit.

    How do I remember to do it every morning & night?

    I keep it right near my bed with a pen on top of it…always ready to go. That’s the key to remembering to use it & do it…seeing it right there when you wake up.

    10. Lastly, I’ll do 1 oracle card pull for the day. I usually switch out between 2 different decks that I keep by my bed side:  Doreen Virtue’s Magical Mermaids and Dolphin Oracle Cards and her Angel Therapy Oracle Cards. I usually have a crystal sitting on top of the deck to lend its energy & then I’ll just choose one card sight unseen to receive a positive message, theme or direction for the day.

    And that’s it.

    Seems like a lot of steps when I write it out like this, but really I have this all memorized now and it all takes me between 5-7 min. Tops.

    I’ve been following this routine for over five years now & I will NEVER go without this morning ritual.
    I’ve accomplished way too much and have seen too many positive results (is that even possible?!) by sticking to it. These morning practices seem to be my secret weapon to getting through challenging days. They’re what give me the self-assuredness, grace & strength to cope in the face of challenges & they’re what I give credit to when I have those amazing days.

    Quick, practical, sparkly and totally doable. Believe me!

    Do you use any of these tools to get your day started in the right direction? To connect with your energy for the day & get it flowing in a positive way?   What’s your morning crystal ritual?   Or if you give my ritual a try, please tell me how it went or how you like it in the comments below! ♥

    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.
