Who Are You to Be Healing Others?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing 26 Comments


I know that’s a possible question running through your mind…. or some ballsy person has actually questioned you with that one.

It used to go through my mind and just about everyone else’s on this path too. I know. I totally get it. It’s only human to question yourself, but do it too much and it really starts to eat away at your confidence. 
Are you waiting until you’re perfectly “healed” before you feel you can start any healing on others?

I’ve been teaching classes in crystal healing since 2010 and founded the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy back in 2011. Over the years I’ve heard it all from our students and alumni:
“Yep, I graduated. I’ve got more than a few a certifications under my belt in a few different modalities. But my chakras aren’t all perfectly balanced yet. I still have issues to heal. Who am I to heal others?“
I’m calling bullshit on that. Get over it and get over yourself.

That’s what I say to that because, hey, guess what?

None of us are perfect & probably NEVER will be.

All those healers/teachers out there pretending to be so and never admitting to any vulnerabilities or faults… all smoke & mirrors, Glitter Bomb. That’s all it is.

Even the highest ascended masters & source energy itself have some imperfections. It’s true!

And being in balance is something that is never complete. It’s something we all need to continually work on. I feel we’re all here on planet to continue learning and working on ourselves. That’s what Mama Earth School is for. So, if we’re all planning on sitting and waiting for all of us to become perfectly balanced, awakened, enlightened or WHATEVER before we ever begin the very-much needed job of assisting others in healing… well then… Oh shit… we’re all in trouble. Right?

One of the most important tenants of what I teach in my course is that YOU are not THE healer. You are simply assisting and facilitating… we can all heal each other & that healing is a 2-way street… both the facilitator & the “heal-ee” exchange & receive healing energy. It’s a 2-way conduit to source energy. We’re giving & we’re receiving; and sure as heck we need it. Those of us who consider ourselves energy workers, light workers, crystal “healers’, therapists, etc…. we need that healing just as much as everybody else does. ♥ I know I do!

So please, get out there, share your gifts, and heal other people… or more accurately assist them in healing themselves… and be healed.

Also keep in mind, if you’re drawn to being a crystal healer or light worker, you also need to know that this is most likely something you volunteered to do; a sacred contract you agreed to fulfill in this life… before you were even born! ♥
Your “pull” towards doing this sort of work is most likely your gentle reminder of your life’s purpose to better our planet & facilitate healing in others.
Feel into that now. How does that feel? Do you feel like you’ve just been reminded of or remembered something? Does it feel familiar or is it even triggering an “a-ha!” moment for you? If it is, pay close attention to that. 😉
So, are you the All-Mighty Healer?
Now this is the ONE thing that is the BIGGEST obstacle that gets in the way because if you think that’s the way it works; that the crystal healer or energy worker is actually doing the healing… then yes, those are some HUGE shoes to fill and I would run the other way too.

You must understand that YOU will not be doing the actual healing or shifting of energy. Ego gets in the way & sabotages us here. Yes, I know this from my own experience!

Instead, you act as the conduit or the “hollow bone” for Source Energy to flow through and assist the client or heal-ee in healing themselves.

I mean this in the nicest way possible, but …you really need to get ova yourself.
Is HMCA right for you?

Having said all this… I also want to make sure that we attract the right kind of student here at the HMCA (Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy).

I love you all…but we’re not all cut out to do this work & some people have different expectations of my academy as we do of our students & graduates.

  • If you’re looking to be spoon-fed dogma & forced into “set in stone” beliefs & not do any of your own self-exploration & inner work to see what’s most in alignment with your own inner knowing, then my course is not the right one for you. I know there are some healer courses out there that force certain doctrines without offering any info on “how” or “why” & some prefer it that way. They just want to be told what to believe and not question it. But that ain’t how we roll over here. I prefer to empower our students.
  • Along the same lines, if you’re looking for a course that simply spews out crystal properties for you to memorize (“this crystal does this, this crystal does that”) then my course is not the course for you. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that. There are other courses out there for you if that’s what you want. But my method is more about qualifying you, allowing you to really get to know your crystals on a whole other level while boosting your confidence by learning the science behind how crystals work …and taking a more personal approach to that.

We require you to DO the work and EARN your certification.

We require you to:

  • ask critical thinking questions,
  • do some self assessment
  • do experiential exercises
  • do a comprehensive final assessment

Yep, offering a serious certification makes it much harder to run my sacred crystal biz, but due to my self-imposed level of integrity, I feel this is the only way to do it… even though it brings a whole other level of complexity & accountability to my biz.

For me, certification means we are responsible for the people certifying through us & making sure that my graduation process is one of integrity. That means we have lots of checks & balances in place along with a strict grading process & verification checks.If you’re looking for a “certification” that allows you to just pay for your certificate and never checks to see if you really integrated the curriculum, those courses are out there… but mine is not the course you’re looking for.

(COULD NOT resist the chance to throw in a Star Wars reference there.)

OK, now that I’ve covered who it’s for & who it’s not for… if you’re interested in getting certified as a Crystal Healer via my course, this is your only chance to register for the Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Course for 2017! We’re closing the doors soon and all payment plans will soon be gone. First day of class is September 5th.

I also want you to know that if you’ve determined you’re just not cut out for it or if my course isn’t the right one for you – I hope to still have the opportunity to serve you & have you be a part of our community, Crystal Hottie.

Are you ready to serve your life purpose and cut the strings that are holding you back?  Affirm your intentions & share in the comments below!  The world needs your healing love and light.  ❤

Many Crystal Blessings,

Crystals, Angels and Guides; a Crystal Healer Blossoms

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, interview 4 Comments

crystal healer interview

Hi Crystal Hottie!

I’ve got another “Crystal Healer Interview” today! Yes, another fresh, new & inspiring crystal perspective from someone else living & breathing this crystal path.

Well, I’m excited to let you meet Certified Crystal Healer Amber Jacobs-Southgate. We worked closely with each other in my Blue Sapphire & Emerald Levels & she’s now gone all the way as a Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Master.

I think she’s a fairy incarnate, really.

Look at her!

Magical Amber shares with us her love of crystals + passion for learning while working with crystals to connect with her guides.

Here’s Amber…

What brought you to the world of crystal healing?
The start of my own healing and spiritual journey. Around 6 years ago I started to have reiki, the lady who I went to used crystals during the healing. I started to collect some small crystals slowly, however 3 years ago my obsession began to take hold as my collection began to get more serious.

Then, I broke my back in a car accident just under 2 years ago which propelled my healing and spiritual journey. Literally, my life began to change at quite a pace. My guides no longer wanted me to take my time, they were pushing me forward onto my life path and brought me to the space where I am today.
What crystal has had the biggest effect on you?
Amethyst for its healing and spiritual advancements (I was bought a beautiful amethyst geode by my husband 2 years ago for Christmas) and clear quartz for helping me to realize what it was I wanted in life (this crystal was one which I sat with during meditation most often after I broke my back) and given it is such a highly programmable crystal I know that it helped me on so many levels – it’s hard to choose just one crystal!

Selenite is close behind these two, it has such a beautiful energy which lifts me in my work with the Angels, it really helped me to connect with the angelic realm and I became hooked on it during my healing too. I have 2 stunning selenite lamps which remind me of ice castles as well as helping to cleanse the rooms they live in (my healing room and my bedroom).

What do others in your life think about the path you are on?
There are some who are skeptical, my husband is starting to understand more and to see how much this means to me. It’s more than a collection of crystals it’s an intensely spiritual way of life.

This is who I am rather than just something I do and it’s never going to stop, this is so important to me.

I feel so lucky to have found crystals and to have been able to bring so many of them not only into my own life but also the lives of others.
What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this path?
Meditation with my crystals.
Through sitting with my crystals and simply relaxing into the moment I began feeling my guides and angels with me.
Through using the appropriate crystals during meditation such as selenite, angelite and angel aura to name a few examples my crown chakra was opened more and my third eye opened – this has all helped me so much in my life.

I’ve been healing so many areas of my life, and working on healing the past – so many traumatic events which have affected me. Meditation has been key in enabling my moments of realization, understanding, forgiveness and ultimate release.
How do you navigate being a crystal healer and a mama on a daily basis?
My babies are 19 and 15 so I have less navigating to do but it’s all about balance and compromise.  Now that my children are able to live their own lives with less of my time it’s been a great way for me to continue my journey. It’s a little like being reborn!

I must confess that I’ve told my husband that if I had to choose him or the crystals and in particular my spiritual work then I’d have to choose the spiritual work. It’s who I am. It’s why I am on this planet.

I’ve been reincarnated so many times, lived through so much in those past lives and all of this has been leading up to this moment. I am ready to help others, to be a powerful lightworker, healer and teacher. I’ve been ready for longer than I realized.

Do any ridicule you for being interested in crystal healing? If so, how do you handle that?
I’ve had some people make comments but I just let them know it’s all about personal preference and journey.

If they’re ready to hear me out with regards to the science behind crystals and the effects my crystals have had on my clients, as well as me, then I will tell them.  Otherwise, I will simply respect their opinions and ask that they do the same.

I still currently work full-time in London, my workplace is not the kind of place to be open to crystals and spiritual work really…so I’ve had some comments but I simply answer questions and explain different rationale to those who ask. I feel that they accept my beliefs now and seem to ridicule me less and less (at least to my face anyway) but then perhaps that is because they see how I have changed over the years of working there – and all for the better absolutely.
What is your go-to crystal for grounding?
Smokey Quartz.

I find black tourmaline a little too heavy for me. I do like hematite as well but smokey quartz is a beautiful gentle energy  and I have a stunning ring I wear often.

What is the primary way you utilize crystals in your practice?
Chakra balancing, crystal prescriptions for stress relief and self esteem issues which seem to be really common issues for my clients.

If anyone I know has issues or problems or becomes ill I will always make up a mojo bag of crystals for them.

My dad had skin cancer diagnosed and I gave him a little bag of beauties which included seraphinite, shungite, selenite and amethyst. He’s been given the all clear after using a cream (he refused an operation to remove the cancer which could have meant he could have gotten worse). Whether the crystals helped or not may not be scientifically provable but I believe they were helpful.
From where do you draw inspiration in your crystal practice?
My guides and the Angels inspire me and I feel inspired in life, drawing from everything and everyone around me. Hibiscus Moon is an amazing teacher, I love they way she encourages her students to use intuition in their work and to go with whatever feels right within.

When I was taking the Certified Crystal Healer course I felt only encouragement and value.
I felt that I was absolutely growing with confidence through each and every lesson. It was an amazing experience.
I have also connected deeply with my past life in Atlantis. This has enabled me to connect at a deeper level with the crystals and I definitely feel that many of my personal crystals have been with me during past lives. I keep 2 collections – one is for myself and one collection is purely for healing others. I feel that this is a healthy way of keeping boundaries at the moment particularly given the fact that I’ve been healing so much of myself too.

Take us through a typical workday for you as a crystal healer.
I get up and meditate, connect with my guides, clear and cleanse the healing room and make sure it’s ready, full of relaxing and healing energy.

It’s a sacred space in itself and I invite my guides, the angels, archangels, ascended masters and various light beings to work with me. I ask them to help me to come from the heart, to let go of ego and not allow ego to get in the way of what is best for my clients.

I look after myself first and foremost each day and then help my clients. That way I know I’m giving my best too.

I only have 3 clients a day maximum so that I can really take my time with them and make the experience all about and for them.

I also receive healing regularly too, that’s so important – I practice what I preach and make sure I live life as an example as much as I possibly can.

Amber’s Bio: Amber is a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer who lives and breathes crystals, she often gives clients tumbled stones to take away and use because she wants to spread the love of crystals far and wide. Amber has presented a workshop on crystals and crystal grids.  Her incredible spiritual journey accelerated after she broke her back in September 2014. Recovery and self love and care have enabled Amber to really connect with the Universe and embrace life in all its glory. You can find Amber on her Facebook page Amber’s Angelic Light & Guidance.
