YouTube to Censor 🚩 Crystal Healing 🔮 Info?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Videos 15 Comments

Let’s dive right in.

Those of you that are into crystal healing, and I assume if you’re here with me that you probably are 😉  you might want to know about this… certain mass media channels are going to try to control our opinions of things.



I’ve never been too enthused about this kind of behavior and you deal with that enough in academia.  I came across that when I was a science department head.

But it’s not something that I expected to spill over in the things that we choose to watch.

There is a little bit of censorship out there already,  some for good reasons, some for not so good reasons, but to me, this is really pushing it a little bit too far.

In the video above I share my screen from a website called The Verge, where it says “YouTube will add information from Wikipedia to videos about conspiracies.”

Some of us think Wikipedia is the word of fact and it’s not, and I’m going to tell you right here why it’s not.

Crystal healing, I don’t know that that qualifies as a conspiracy theory, but it could.   It seems that theVerge titled the blog like that because they wanted to roll everything up into one post. Along with a picture of the CEO of YouTube on the Verge blog page it says:

“YouTube will add information from Wikipedia to videos about popular conspiracy theories to provide alternative viewpoints on controversial subjects, its CEO said today. YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki  said that text boxes which the company is calling “information cues” would begin appearing on conspiracy-related videos within the next couple of weeks.”

I don’t know about you, but I watch YouTube quite a bit because that’s where I get my information from. I don’t watch CNN, Fox News and the mass media. I’m sorry. Some of you have ridiculed me for that. Some of you like it, don’t like, whatever. It’s my choice to do that, right?

I use my own discretion.

I do my own due diligence.

I do my own research.

I always encourage you guys to do that too, to use your critical thinking skills and your natural skepticism. I keep an open mind. I’m skeptical on things but I keep an open mind, and I do my own research and put it through my own filter and decide if something is true or not true for me, and I make up my own mind.

I don’t need YouTube putting little boxes next to probably 75% of the stuff that I watch on YouTube to give me an information cue that this is possibly, according to them, a conspiracy related video.

I’ve done some additional reading and took some notes because this spills over into other topics that include:

  • anything that’s trending
  • anything showing significant debate happening
  • or anything having an active discussion on YouTube.

Basically if you are a YouTube creator and getting lots of engagement on whatever it is you’re talking about and they see it’s sparking a debate and creating controversy, they’re going to flag it for these information cues, and what are they going to use to provide their stance on the subject? Wikipedia?!
Do we need our Opinions Spoon Fed to us?

So this brings up another thing.  Do we need our opinions to be biased by a mass media authority like Wikipedia?  Do we need our opinions spoon fed to us?

I don’t.

I want to make up my own mind on things.
Wikipedia on Crystal Healing
Here’s what Wikipedia says about crystal healing… So if they put one of those information cues next to one of my videos, this is what it’s going to say:

“Crystal healing is a pseudoscientific alternative medicine technique that employs stones and crystals. Adherents of the technique claim that these have healing powers, although there is no scientific basis for this claim.”

I call bullshit. Bullshit.

Any of you who’ve taken my course know that we give a lot of scientific basis, and when they say no scientific basis, who did they go to to verify that?

We come up against this in academia all the time. You know, peer reviewed, but then there’s someone like Nassim Haramein who has lots of scientific basis behind the work that he does and most of academia won’t give him the time of day. Most of the peer review journals won’t publish him because he didn’t go through the proper channels and he’s talking about stuff that scares them, and means they’re going to need to revise entire theories in textbooks, and put lots of professors out of commission. So no, we don’t want to talk about that fringe stuff.

Sorry, I get really passionate about this!  Wikipedia goes on to say …

“In one method, the practitioner places crystals on different parts of the body, often corresponding to chakras, or else the practitioner places crystals around the body in an attempt to construct an energy grid, which is purported to surround the client with healing energy.”

Okay, I’ve got no problem with that.

“Despite this, scientific investigations have not validated claims that chakras or energy grids actually exist.”

We do have scientific investigations that do validate these claims of both chakras and crystal gridding. Energy gridding can be verified if you look at the right scientific investigation.

They go on…

“Nor is there any evidence that crystal healing has any greater effect upon the body than any other placebo. For these reasons it is considered a pseudoscience.”

Who did they go to for that information?  How do they know? Who’s they?
I’ll tell you who they is
For those of you that don’t know, with Wikipedia, anyone can apply to be an account holder and be someone who goes in and creates these pages, validates them, and then also can make changes to them.

How do I know? Because I used to do it.

Not for Wikipedia I think it might have been the prototype of Wikipedia. This was years ago. I used to be approved, because I’m a geek like that, as a person of different science subjects and I thought it was so amazing that we could go in and provide information about certain topics, and then you would approve someone’s addition or deletion.

Of course, your account had to be approved and if they found you to start being an unreliable source, they booted you off your account. It was peer reviewed.  A peer of a group of people who contribute to Wikipedia. So really anybody, your nine-year-old neighbor’s kid down the street could do this. There’s no verification on this.

When I was a classroom teacher, Wikipedia was not considered a reliable source.  I’m pretty sure that has not changed. Students that tried to turn in work that cited Wikipedia as a source in any way were given a big red X.  Go do it over. Don’t give me information you cited off of Wikipedia because it’s not considered factual information.

Because think about it. Who’s fact checking? Who’s fact checking the people who are supposed to be fact checking? Nobody. They assume that they’re right.

Even Wikipedia itself says:
“Wikipedia is not a reliable source. Wikipedia can be edited by anyone at any time.  This means that any information it contains in any particular time could be vandalism.”
Vandalism?  That’s getting a little extreme, but it can happen.

Why are we relying on them to tell us what’s up about crystal healing?

Please.

I found more information on, this is from Wired:  YouTube will link directly to Wikipedia to fight conspiracy theories.

I highlighted this part:

“If you search and click on a conspiracy theory video about say, chemtrails YouTube will now link to Wikipedia pages that debunks the hoax alongside the video.”

I’ll tell you my personal opinion on chemtrails. I don’t know that every bit of it is true, but there’s quite a lot of evidence building that there is something to it.   I don’t think it’s a conspiracy theory. How come they’re telling me it’s a conspiracy theory?

So they’re also telling you it’s a hoax.  People who just don’t know a lot about it, who aren’t as nerdy as some of us who feel like it’s fun to go in and do all this critical thinking and researching and due diligence and finding the information for yourself, will just go, “Oh, it’s a hoax.  I found it on Snopes. It’s a hoax.”

And Snopes is not reliable either. They’ve had to backtrack on a few things.  I’m flabbergasted.

They’re going to tell us what’s a hoax and what’s not? Is that okay with you?
Let’s be our own free thinkers.
There’s some obviously ridiculous and dangerous conspiracy theories out there, or people putting information out there that they shouldn’t, but that’s always been the case. In the past, we’ve always had to do our own filtering, right, to figure out what we should be paying attention to and what we shouldn’t be.

Are you okay with somebody else telling you how to think?

I can see where social media helps to spread these things and make it more viral, and that’s a layer that we’ve never really had to deal with except for in the last five years, but that’s the nature of social media.  Let’s not put all the blame on them, or we’re going to become a society where censorship is just that’s the way it is and you’re going to have to be okay with them telling you what to think, what hashtags to use, controlling your mind. Are you no longer a free thinker?

Here’s a quote from Steve Jobs:
“Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”
I think that that is so important, so very important.

I Just wanted to bring this topic up because I wonder… what happened to free thinking? Independent thinking? Allowing us to form our own opinion? What happened to that? Is that not what we’re allowed to do anymore?

So I want you to know what’s up when you start seeing that on YouTube, that you are aware of it, you’re forewarned and you see what’s going on an what they’re doing.

Anyone that is willing to open themselves up to alternate methods of healing will not let a little box deter them from doing their research.  Right?!  Unfortunately though, in reality I think that some people will let that deter them.

That’s the good thing about learning the science behind how crystal healing works, like I teach in my course. I feel like now more than ever that’s going to be really important for you to be confident in explaining what it is you do and how you do it. I feel that knowing the science behind it, the information behind it is very important.

YouTube is cool but I find that they’ve been censoring things more and more. They’ve actually deleted videos just based on complaints from people saying conspiracy theory.  Why?

Now I can see that drawing the line on censorship can be really difficult. I’m sure you can think of instances where some things should not be on YouTube, so how do they draw that line? I don’t know. I don’t have the answer for that, but when it comes to something like this, like whether or not there are UFOs and aliens, I don’t need your opinion on that. I make my own opinion on that, have ever since I was a kid. And just so you know, I do believe that there are both.

What do YOU think about all this censoring on YouTube?  How do you feel about YouTube & Wikipedia telling you what is a conspiracy theory? What is a hoax?  I’d love to hear what you are thinking so let’s keep this conversation going in the comments below.

Crystal Blessings,

 

 

Giving You Permission to Hate My Guts!

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing 20 Comments

You may not like me… and that’s OK.

As long as you learned something valuable from me, I’m totally OK with you not liking me… or even hating my guts!

I got used to that as a classroom science teacher. In fact, I’d sometimes hear a pissed off student call me a flurry of colorful names after refusing to change a grade. Then I’d pretend I didn’t hear it (to avoid having to discipline them in yet another way) and have to hide my face behind my grade book while I was snickering and praying they didn’t catch me in the act. Not snicker in an evil cackle-ish kind of way but in my hard-to-stifle immature sort of way that I have… that part of me that commiserates with a teenager’s angst over her or his “STUPID-ASS SCIENCE TEACHER”! I would totally vibe with them and get it.

BUT I STILL WASN’T GONNA BUDGE ON THAT GRADE, BABE!

Students hating me (at first) because they thought I was “too hard” but then later actually thanking me because I pushed them harder and they rose to the challenge… were better for it when they went on to higher grade levels, took those dang-fangled standardized tests (don’t get me started!) and truly understood the science… all because I made it clear they were not going to just coast with me. I was here to challenge them. I think for the most part my students had a totally different outlook by the end of the year. Many even say I was their favorite teacher ever. I’m NOT saying all this to brag but instead to prove a very important point.

Through the rigorous process of becoming a Nationally Board Certified Science Teacher, I learned the importance and value of student critical thinking and assessment of content knowledge. I’ve never given out grades like the “popular” teachers did. And I’m not about to start now with Crystal Healing Certifications just to make my life easier. I’ve seen many do it, but that just goes against every grain in my being.

Some of those science students of mine even went on to change their interests and or pursue scientific careers and majors in college because of how I was able to take them into the deep end of the pool with science… at first kicking and screaming and then later they were joyfully splashing around.  ❤️

And I notice the same thing now with some of my adult crystal healing students. I suppose it’s my signature teaching style.

So, I’ve got this demanding reputation and I’m proud of it!
It’s all about the Energy
And now with my Certified Crystal Healer students, I’m just as uncompromising, especially on certain aspects.

For instance, I require that our CCH students be mindful of the energy they bring into a transaction of any sort.

Meaning that they are mindful of:

  • how they carry themselves
  • how they transact energy of any sort (including money)
  • their boundaries
  • things that say and do

As that’s all energy you know.  Of course, I’m not looking for perfection, but as HMCA students and alumni, they’re held to a higher standard. Yes, we keep an eye on that; holding them accountable. I feel strongly as an educator and a certifying body and academy that it’s our responsibility to do that before allowing someone to go out into the world certified by us to facilitate energy work with others.

It’s not a Given
Unlike with some other institutions, not everybody gets to graduate as a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer just because they paid the tuition. Since the beginning, I’ve held to this standard and have been saying it since the inception of my academy in 2011: you pay for the education, but you must EARN the certification. I feel this should hold true for any sort of school, but that’s another convo for another day!

Just as in a university with integrity (and a lot of them are losing that these days); if you don’t uphold the values, standards, and principles of that institution, or you don’t get the required grades OR show poor behavior, poor character; you’re not going to get to graduate from there. And rightly so!

Because what sort of integrity would that institution have if they let shit like that slide? How would that seem fair to all those who’ve graduated, met requirements and earned degrees from there? The prestige of that school would go out the window!

I’ve baked these non-wavering principles and integrity into the HMCA culture. Because I’ve done that and have refused to waiver from the beginning, our alumni and our community see the value and accomplishment in graduating as a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer. It’s appreciated, well-earned, respected and admired.

Nope, I may not be your cup o’ tea.

I’d rather be someone’s double shot of Crystal Gem Elixir anyway. 😉

What to Expect
So maybe an easier “pay-and-get-your-instant-certificate-with-no-accountability-nor-assessment” deal is more your style. Because, you know, some places do it like that and if that’s what you’re looking for, no judgment at all!  But let me tell you now if that’s how you roll; HMCA is not for you. Better we know now, right?

(Hey now, please bear in mind that we do offer an “Audit” level for those looking to get the sparkly info for their own personal use. In that level, you’re not required to do any assignments, assessment nor any grad requirements).

Yeah, I could make it easy for all involved, both on our end and the student’s end) and go that EASY route. Then there would be tons more people certified as “Hibiscus Moon CCHs,” and we’d be registering scads more people.

But that goes against my very essence.
Running a course that requires no effort or demonstration of mastery to earn your credentials is certainly not what I was put here on Mama Earth for.
Nope.

Yeah, I could just slap together a course where you pay the fee, you get the content and maybe even a fancy-schmancy certificate to hang on your wall, and what you do with the info or don’t do with it is your business. I may never check on you again, nor hold you to any standards or code of ethics, and just throw a certificate and some initials at you, because you paid for it.

Well, the HMCA way, it’s not only harder for our students but for us on our end too. Yes, ask the Sparkle Team. The way I insist on doing things makes all our jobs much more complicated and incurs quite the expense in time, energy and money.  And even with these processes in place, I’m so very proud of the fact that we have over 1,400 graduates from over 40 countries around the globe.

Oh, and another thing… if you’re looking for a course that simply spews out crystal properties for you to memorize then this is not the course for you. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that but there are other courses out there if that’s more of what you resonate with.

Our method teaches you to really get to know your crystals & we take a more personal approach to that.
Have I scared you off yet?
What, am I crazy?

Am I trying to deliberately scare you off?

Absolutely not.

I just want to convey exactly the kind of institution that we are and to make sure that we both know what to expect from each other. I want it to be clear that you will be required to do the work. We will hold you to clearly defined standards while supporting you all the way. This way there are no surprises. It’s not that hard really. You just need to do the work and you have a full year to get it all done and we’ve built in more support then you’ll probably ever need just to over-deliver.
Why Do it the Hard Way?
When I set out to do this, I knew that graduating from Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy needed to mean something–it needed to be admired, respected and have merit. That’s how our graduates and our Academy have earned the reputation we currently now have.

See, I’m super-passionate about what I do and I feel there is no greater joy than to see the delight or get an excited testimonial from a student who suddenly comprehends a certain concept or is now inspired to take it much deeper than they ever thought they wanted to go. NOTHING supersedes that. And working through the hard stuff, not relenting and not “making it easy”… that’s the only way to get there. So I’m willing to slog through the “hard stuff” to get YOU there. Then you’ll see how rewarding it is too!

It’s critical to me that when you register with us you:

  • are committed to learning
  • want to build a strong foundation through critical thinking and assessment
  • will profoundly develop your crystal practice, confidence and skills before sharing it out with clients
  • will come to recognize crystals as powerful energetic tools and have adequate training to use them in an effective, yet secure, safe & sensible manner

I want to continue to make sure that we attract the right kind of student here at the HMCA.

OK, now that we’ve covered who it’s for and who it’s not for, if you’re still here reading this you may be happy to learn that our Spring 2018 registration will be opening very soon! Get on our Wait List here for first notice and some pretty juicy perks.

As I said, I’ve given you permission to hate my guts. It’s really OK by me. Just as long as I’ve prodded you to challenge yourself, I’m totally down with it.

Now, as long as the conversation stays thoughtful, respectful and civil, I invite you to comment below … what do you think about our certification standards?

Crystal Blessings!

 

Amp Up Your Voltage: Crystals to Support the Lymphatic System

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Videos 25 Comments

As we move through our days, it’s easy to just mindlessly keep going, moving fast on autopilot. But we may want to start paying attention and slow down long enough to take time to read the signs. You know, the messages that we receive again and again to slow down… and lately I’ve received many signs to stop and give some TLC to my lymphatic system; in particular the need to encourage Lymphatic Drainage.

So, I did 😉 and this video/blog is the result. I found some things that worked for me that I want to share with you.

I got inspired by something I read about in a few different books at the same time (gotta love those synchro-mysticisms!) all around lymphatic drainage. I thought,
“This is a Sign!”
I’d had a recent uptick in allergies not related to seasonal blooms.  I knew it was from some not-so-great food I was eating that I know better not to eatI don’t eat super bad, but it wasn’t the healthiest either and it was affecting my allergies… as could have been predicted!

I know I’ve had these issues before, so all this was telling me that I really needed to clean it up big time!  I was becoming super, super sensitive to just about anything. I’ve known for a while but just kept on ignoring that my lymphatic system, my body’s plumbing system was in need of some help.

DISCLAIMER: As always when discussing these sorts of things, let me preface this post by saying you all know I’m no doctor.  I am not giving you medical advice. I’m just telling you what worked for ME. If you choose to use any advice given here, I advise you to take this to your doctor first. This info should be used as a compliment to a sound holistic health plan.

Lymphatic Drainage
So, why do we want to actively drain our lymphatic system? Can’t our body just do it on its own like our heart pumps our blood without us doing anything to initiate that? 

Well, one thing I recently learned in the book, Healing is Voltage (I highly recommend this book, but it’s very heavy science stuff. If you’re not interested in that then you may not like this book):

The Lymphatic System is our plumbing system, but it doesn’t have an actual pump. If our voltage is not high enough amplitude in our body (pH is a measure of that; your looking for it to be more on the alkaline side than on the acidic side)… then the lymphatic system won’t work optimally, meaning it won’t drain itself efficiently.
What’s the Cause?
Your cells need to be surrounded by a certain voltage in the extracellular environment. Overall, your body needs to have the correct voltage to operate optimally.  If your lymph system is clogged up then the plumbing system is backed up.

Backups can be caused by pollution in our environment, pollutants we’re ingesting, things we’re putting on our skin, things we eat, etc. In a nutshell,  if you’re eating inorganic foods and toxic things that may be in that food, that all gets into your lymph system.

OR… the blockages may begin as an energetic block or clog. If things that are going on with us mentally or emotionally are not dealt with, they’ll eventually fester and get more energetically dense.  Then it condenses down until it starts affecting us on a physical level. Perhaps things that we haven’t forgiven ourselves for or forgiven others for or repressed anger against others…stuff like that gets denser and denser if it hasn’t been dealt with on an energetic level until finally, boom! It’s in your physical body and now it’s plugged up your lymphatic system.

When it gets plugged up, it ends up seeping out into the extracellular area around the lymph nodes. That sludge becomes the “electrons stealers”; stealing electrons from the rest of your body and thereby lowering your voltage. No bueno.
Just like you want your energetic vibration to be high, you want your electrical voltage to be as high as it possibly can be.
Without getting into specific numbers, you want your lymph system to be operating at its optimum level.  We can get there by eliminating acidic-forming and junk food as well as by reducing the toxic load in our environment. But even if you decide to clean up your act now, you still have to do some clean up to cleanse the system from the past “sins”. You’ve got to clean out the plumbing, right?

If you got a clogged up pipe in your house you can just say, “Okay I’m going to stop throwing junk down there” but until you remove the clog and get the system running correctly, you’re not going to correct the problem.
Take Matters Into Your Own Hands
For myself, I saw the signs and I decided, “Let’s jumpstart this thing”.  So I went ahead and had a lymphatic drainage massage done by a local energy healer and then I did an infrared sauna for 30 min. immediately after that at her office. I did that treatment 3 weeks in a row.

The infrared frequency, whether via sauna or a Biomat session (or whatever way you prefer to get infrared energy into your bod) helps to get the lymph system flowing along. If you do decide to use either the Infrared sauna or the Biomat, be sure to turn up the heat as high as is safe for you. My goal when I do this is to sweat out any built-up toxins and then immediately afterward I take a shower to get all the toxic-stuff off of me.

Crystal Body Layout
For this layout you will need:

  • 8-10 smokey quartz tumbled stones
  • 1 tsp Cream of Tartar
  • Bay Laurel organic and 100% pure essential oil

My go-to crystal for any sort of detoxing is Smokey Quartz. You can get 8-10 tumbled stones and place the crystals next to or on your body where the lymph nodes tend to cluster (reference the above chart).

Creating a crystal body layout like this is going to put the smokey quartz vibrations within your electromagnetic field, so it’s going to encourage drainage and detoxing energy into your auric field. I like to relax in a layout like this for about 15-30 minutes.

Additionally, I recently learned to put a little teaspoon of organic Cream of Tartar under my tongue while doing this crystal body layout helps to encourage the release of toxins from my lymph system. ❤

Bay Laurel essential oil actually encourages drainage of the lymph nodes. You can also apply a few drops of the oil up and down your spine before lying down in the crystal layout (check for skin sensitivity first). Either have someone else do this for you or apply to areas that you can reach. In addition to applying it or instead of, you may diffuse the essential oil into your space.

While you’re laying there in the crystal body layout, we’re going to use vibrational frequency of visualization of actually move the energy. I often teach in my Certified Crystal Healer Course about an internal energetic light column that we have – an energetic tube that goes right through the center of our body.  You’re going to visualize light going from the bottom of that column up to the top of your head, then out and around flowing around your body back down to your feet. Just like you’ve seen magnetic fields around a magnet. Your energy is doing this too.
You’ll want to visualize that energy free, clear, light and bright.
See that energy lit up, bright white rainbow light flowing in and up and around and then out and back in again, flowing beautifully without any blocks, totally free-flowing.  Clearing, cleansing your lymphatic system. Set that intention and visualize that happening and the actual effect is so much more powerful!
Other Effective Things I Do

  • Encouraged lymphatic drainage by applying gentle pressure on the lymph system.  Here’s a video that can direct you on how to do that:

  • You can also drink some herbal tea to help cleanse your system.  I recommend Dandy Blend tea; a dandelion-blend tea. It doesn’t taste like a tea at all actually if you prepare it correctly, according to the directions on the back… it tastes more like a coffee to me.  And unlike coffee, it’s actually pH alkalizing while also very efficient at cleansing out your lymph system + your liver.
  • I also use jade tools to encourage lymphatic drainage. Very gently, I use these jade massage tools to encourage lymphatic drainage and to break up impurities underneath the skin, while improving circulation to the area.  Jade is all about the vibrational frequency of healing, vitality, healing the body, healing energy.  Another tool I really like is a jade roller.  I like using the roller because not only does it help with the lymph drainage, you can use it all over your face for all the different lymph nodes located there so for its anti-aging benefits too! It helps with the vitality of the skin and circulation all the while you’re infusing that Jade energy – health and vitality – into your energetic body.
  • You can also layer on additional vibrational frequencies by adding a few drops of that Bay Laurel essential oil (test for skin sensitivity first!) to your fractionated coconut oil and it’ll allow the jade tools to flow a little bit easier over the skin with less resistance.
  • Make sure you take a shower after your Lymphatic Drainage massage to wash off the oils and because toxins are going to be released.

Lymphatic Health Oil Diffusing Blend
Use this blend of the following essential oils in your oil diffuser:

  • Lemon, 3 drops
  • Frankincense, 2 drops
  • Myrrh, 2 drops
  • Oregano, 2 drops

Keep in mind with this oil blend, we’re not going for the most beautiful smell here.

We’re going for efficacy.

I hope this info was helpful and valuable to you!  If you feel it was, please share it out.

Let me know if you’ll be incorporating any of these tips and tools to drain your lymphatic system and amp up your voltage.  Notice a difference?  Feeling balanced or more energized?  What are some other things that you’ve tried?

Healing Blessings,

Is There Science Behind the Gemstones You’re Attracted To?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, science, Videos 16 Comments

Is there a scientific reason you’re attracted to certain Minerals and Gems? Consider that!

Let’s get this out-of-the-way first: THE BORING DISCLAIMER – I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. I feel crystals should be used as a compliment to a sound holistic health plan & not as a replacement for regular medical and/or psychological care & consultation. Please check with a doctor first before applying any advice given here.

So, is there a reason? I think I may have found one.

In this livestream, I go over my theory on this…

It’s interesting to think about right?

I’ve been interested in bio-hacking for as far back as I can remember.

This is something new I’ve come up with, that I’ve been playing with and I’m super excited to share it with YOU.  Now, remember, I’m just telling you what I’m doing and a different way of approaching minerals and gemstones. As I already stated, I’m not a doctor. 😉  This is simply something I’ve been trying out for myself and talking to others about and I do think I may be on to something here. 

On the path towards greater overall well-being today, I want to talk about mineral testing; a technique to find out what works for you and your body, what you may be deficient or sufficient in.
All crystals are minerals, so every single crystal that you look at is a mineral.  It’s just grown in a visible crystal form when you are looking at crystals.
I’ve been working with this easy mineral testing kit and it got me to thinking about the crystals and gemstones we’re drawn to most.

I feel it’s good to take a look at where you are, to see where your body is at and calibrate what minerals you may be deficient in and what minerals you’re not. This mineral testing kit is a simple way to do that.  It comes with all the instructions too. Here’s a link for the Liquid Mineral Testing Kit  🙂

There are 8 different minerals in the kit.  A few examples of what’s included are tests for:

  • Potassium
  • Copper
  • Manganese
  • Chromium

In the video, I show you a couple of examples of testing in action.  One example is for testing the mineral copper.  Now, when I went through the process of testing with copper, it tasted sweet to me.  Which, as the kit will tell you, means that I need more of that in my body.  So my body is craving it. In the testing process, “sweet-tasting” means that you need that mineral, that you are very deficient in that mineral and your body is signaling that it wants some.

And lo and behold, wouldn’t you know it… I’ve been highly attracted to copper-bearing crystals for some time now: azurite, gem silica…. AJOITE! 

[caption id="attachment_16525" align="aligncenter" width="599"] Just a bit of my ajoite collection![/caption]
My Theory
See where I’m going with this theory here?

To sum up…

  • When your body likes it, it means it needs more of it. 
  • When it doesn’t like it, your body doesn’t need it.

So, I’m thinking that your body is trying any way that it can to attract and entrain you with that vibrational frequency that it’s in need of most. By directing you to be attracted to that mineral in various ways. Even if that means getting that mineral into your auric field by you keeping it physically in your environment, close by. 🙂

Doesn’t that make total sense?

Of course, what your body needs may change with time and fluctuate so you have to keep checking, but very simplified; it’s what you are drawn to most that you need.

Now, I need to take a look at my diet and see where I can supplement those minerals of course, but also I can look to my crystals and see … am I drawn mainly to those crystals that contain that mineral? Of course, this doesn’t mean I’m ONLY going to be drawn to those crystals that contain minerals I’m deficient in but I do feel it’s an important piece of the puzzle!

You can use this method to experiment with yourself, observe and take note… see if there is a correlation between the minerals you need and the crystals you’re drawn to.  Is there a connection?

I’m excited to expand my experimentation with this and plan to dive deeper and expand more on this in my Certified Crystal Healer Course!

Alright Crystal Hottie,  I hope you’re as excited as I am to have found this correlation.  I’d love to hear your take on this: Do you think you’re drawn to crystals that contain minerals you may be deficient in?  Please share in the comments below.

Crystal Blessings,
