How Good 2012 Was To Me

How Was 2012?

Yes, I’d say 2012 was pretty darned good to me! Major shifting happened. The most notable shift was that I left my full time position as a science department chair to take my sacred crystal biz full time! The next major shift was that the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy grew by leaps & bounds with people getting certified as Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healers all over the world!

Did I leave that all to fate & what was in the cards for me? HELL TO THE NO!

I realized that creating a sacred biz like this 1 would require some out of the box thinking, some discipline & ambition (I’m a Capricorn so I’ve got plenty o’ that!), some risk & top that off with BIG POWERFUL DREAMING! Then I got really clear on what my goals were last Winter Solstice during my crystal meditation time. Then I planned my heart out, surrounded myself with super knowledgeable & helpful people, then got to manifestation with all the crystal mojo know-how that I have with crystal grids, mojo bags, meditations, gem elixirs…did it all! Oh yes~! Here’s the all important key:

Bringing in the powerful metaphysical mojo gave this whole game plan just the right amount of ooomph! It gave me the energy & willpower I needed to roll up my sleeves & do the work along with that special something that made it all come true. Working the crystal mojo along side my disciplined hard work was the key to taking all the effort a few octaves higher & having it go GANGBUSTERS!!

Yeah. Some think that doing a crystal grid is enough. Build it, sit back, relax & they will come. I feel that you need to put your energy & effort into it too, making simple shifts, baby steps or GIANT LEAPS, each & every day towards your dream. That’s just as important as the spiritual work. So start taking the necessary steps to move towards your goal & you’ll start seeing amazing things happening, circumstances easily falling into place, the right people will begin to appear…it all comes together, Jelly Bean.

I also remember to be ever so grateful for all this everyday. Gratitude is a big part of it.

And I’m very grateful for what is yet to come! Wooooohoooo! Bring it!

Metaphysical Support

In addition, the spiritual metaphysical stuffs have not only given my dreams the boost they needed but they helped to support me…and continue to do so. Yeah,  all this manifesting is hard work & it takes a lot out of you (for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction…thank you Sir Newton!) I need to constantly remember to give myself spiritual support & nourishment. In fact, I feel myself slipping a bit on this as of late. My plan is to get more grounding time in with both crystals & meditation & the great outdoors.

So, yeah….all of this WORKED! BIG TIME. And I LOVE what I do. I live my bliss daily as a Crystal Healing teacher.

So what are you dreaming up for 2013, Lima Bean? Do you already live your dream or do you just know you’re on the brink of something HUGE?

What is a Shamanic dream crystal & Shamanic star stone & what are they used for?

Hibiscus Moon divination, dreaming, energy work, grounding 6 Comments

Hey Chick Pea!

With my recent post on Crystals to Improve Dream Recall there was some confusion between Dream quartz & Shamanic Dream Crystal (stone) or Lodolite, which in turn often gets confused with Shamanic Star Stone aka Shaman Stone. Sheesh! Let’s make it confusing, why don’t we?

See, this is what I mean about all the various crystal property books making things confusing.

Don’t get me wrong! I love my crystal books but you need to learn to wade through some of the fluff & figure some stuff out for yourself.

Dream quartz is explained in the post I refer to above so I’ll leave that 1 there.
Shamanic Dream Crystal
Shamanic Dream Crystals/Stones (Lodolite) are usually used for enhancing daydreaming & Shamanic divining. Shamans have also been known to use these guys for vision quests & to bring about healings for others.

[caption id="attachment_8067" align="aligncenter" width="543"] Shamanic Dream Crystal. Photo taken by Mauro Cateb.[/caption]

These stones have all the amazing qualities of clear quartz plus the additional vibrations of their different inclusions: Chlorite (the green parts) & iron. “Lodolite” is not a proper mineralogical term so don’t go spouting that off to your local mineral dealer. “Lodolite” comes from the Greek languange & means “muddy stone”. These babies are mined in the famous Minas Gerais region of Brazil. They can also have smokey quartz, phantoms and rutilated quartz too in it as well.

Its energy is very gentle & soft & makes a great crystal buddy for gazing, daydreaming, lucid dreaming, meditation & for Shamanic journeying, of course. They’re like a portal into another dimension. However, individuals who are not well grounded shouldn’t try to partake in these sorts of energy trips so use with caution.
Here’s something you can try:
1. Gaze into the stone; letting your eyes go out of focus…using “soft eyes”, allow yourself to drift into all the inclusions

2. Slowly close your eyes & allow the stone to guide you on a personal journey. See where it takes you.
Shamanic Star Stone aka Shaman Stone
There’s no confusion in how these stones look. The confusion is in the name: Shamanic Star Stone aka Shaman Stone, Boji Stone or Moqui Marbles. The Moqui name comes from the Moqui children who used them in games around the Grand Canyon area in Utah.

These babies are a curiosity.

Geologically, they’re simply iron oxide concretions, but we’re just not exactly sure how Mother Earth makes them. They’re made of a hematite outer shell with sandstone in the center.

 

Some believe them to be the most powerful stones on earth.

They’re excellent at cleansing, balancing, grounding and making a deep connection with nature.

They’re also known to help strengthen your energetic sheath, helping to keep stray non-beneficial energies from attaching to your EMF. Due to that, Shaman stones are ideal for alleviating the emotional fear of physical pain.

So I hope that helped to clarify a few things or introduced you to some new stones you ‘d like to get to know!

Happy Crystal Healing!

4 Crystals to Improve Dream Recall

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Grids, Crystals, dreaming 36 Comments

Do you have trouble remembering your dreams?
We’ve all had those nights. You know you had a really powerful dream but you just can’t remember the details…or just have fleeting bits n’ pieces & can’t get the message out of it. And then even those fuzzy fragments float away as you really come out of your sleep. Oh! Wait!! What was that? Oh….shoot…its GONE.

Crystals can help with that, Sweet Pea!

First, you’ll want to set an intention to remember your dreams before you go to sleep, say a little prayer, state an affirmation or do a light meditation for that purpose. Then be sure you have a pen & paper or a recording device at your bedside so you are ready to record whatever you recall as soon as you wake up. Now, let’s get to the sparkly dream crystals.
4 Dream Crystals to Improve Your Dream Recall:
1. Amethyst

Amethyst is a workhorse of a crystal. Sheesh! What isn’t it good for? Plus, its inexpensive & easy to find & GORG-BEAUTIOUS!

Amethyst is known for easing communication, allowing for a smooth easy connection with Source energy &  the spiritual realm. It allows us to let go & allow messages to come through our 3rd eye, making communication clear, letting us remember & interpret our dreams.

2. Dream quartz

Dream Quartz is a LUSCIOUS newly discovered quartz hailing from Colombia. Its quartz  with inclusions of green prehnite & epidote inside (usually more epidote than prehnite). I’ll warn you though…its not an easy stone to find nor is it cheap. Its usually green in color. This piece also has lithium in it (great for calming you to sleep) giving it a pinky hue. Can we say HOT?!

This is a crystal that will take you on a dreamy magic carpet ride so get ready! Due to the epidote it will attract the patterns & stories that you’re putting out there & tell you a dream story to help guide you on your path while releasing any negative bents to that story. The prehnite inclusions will help in your communication with the spiritual realm. And of course, your recall will be much stronger after you awake.

3. Hemimorphite

This lovely blue magical crystal assists in emotional healing & communication with Source Energy while stimulating your pineal gland & 3rd eye to assist & receiving the dream-time messages & interpreting them. Its also known to calm your emotions & get them out of the way so you can see your messages clearly while recalling your dreams. It reminds me of glacial formations. Totally YUMMY!!

4. Herkimer diamond

Herkimer diamonds…despite their name, they’re relatively easy to get & not nearly as expensive. They’re actually a type of quartz form Herkimer, New York & they are a go-to stone for any sort of dream work. They’re the perfect support for helping you to remember the messages & stories in your dreams. They’re also very useful tools for purifying your energy afterwards so you don’t have any heavy lingering energetic debris dragging around on you after certain types of dreams. A must-have for dream work…really.

Now, what to do with your crystals?

You can place 1 or more of these crystal under your pillow in a mojo bag or create a crystal grid with them…or do BOTH! Then R-E-L-A-X & go to sleep. Let the crystals do their job.

If you have other dream crystal choices that you prefer or if you’ve given these a go, please post about your dreamy results below so we can all share.

Sweet Glittery Dreams to you & Many Crystal Blessings,
