Whine & cheese & not a thing about crystals

Hibiscus Moon blogging, Everyday/Personal Stuffs 1 Comment

Today, I figured I’d blog about what I’ve been up to business-wise…off the crystal-beaten path for a bit.

In some recent videos on my Crystal Channel, I mentioned that I wanted to do more professional looking videos, needed to soup up my camera & make better quality crystal videos, being that crystals are such a visual thing. I really felt I wasn’t doing them justice.

So that entails better lighting & a really good camera…using a tripod to get away from all the shaky, jerky movements. I also needed better sound quality so microphones were on the list too. I figured I’d get a few different options, try them out & then return what I wouldn’t be using.

Here’s my latest video explaining how that went…with bloopers @ the end.

BTW, I have NOT aborted the mission!

It takes a lot more than some fancy-schmancy techy junk to scare me away! It might be scary, but I will face it. 

I will be persistent. I just need to find the right set up for me. Right now, I’m trying out video taping directly from my iphone5 with the lapel microphone & a tripod. I do still need to find a good, yet smaller lighting solution. I’ll keep you all posted & let you know how it goes! And if you have any tips for me…I’m all ears. 🙂

Crystal Blessings, Lima Beans!

Those of you subbed to my YouTube Crystal Channel know that last week I committed to pulling a crystal oracle card each day & working with a related crystal for that day.

7 Day Crystal Oracle Reading Series – Day 1

…& I did it for 7 days consecutively & posted each day on YouTube just like I said I would…surprised myself there! Commitment, Baby!

But what I really gained was totally unexpected. I got such insight into various energetic changes & emotions + a deeper relationship with those crystals that I chose to work with.

I got extra meditation time in & extra-special soul healing occurred…all b/c I took the time & committed to doing this.

I gained such gorgeous insights + revelations that I want to share this experience with all of you. I want you to experience it for yourselves. As a teacher, I know there is NOTHING better than experiential learning; the process of making meaning from direct experience.

And you will experience such DEEP MEANING from this. Trust moi.

So, you ready for this challenge, Crystal Hottie? Hmmmm?

Today, I challenge you to do your own 7 Day Crystal Reading Challenge. OK?

The Challenge:

I challenge you to pull an oracle card or crystal from a bag each morning upon waking, no matter how rushed you are, not matter what sort of mood you’re in. Just do it. It will help make things seem brighter. It did for me. Do you have the power to change your day? Yes, you doooos. Do it!

I want you to have a positive morning, Sweet Pea. If its not one already, you can make it so. Pull a card or a crystal. Simple enough, right?

If you get the message right away great. If not, you may need to read into a bit more. You may need that message to sink in a bit deeper and ask for the meaning again later in the day. That’s OK, grab your corresponding crystal & start working with it.

You can start with a mini meditation right away or simply put the crystal in your pocket to take along. You’ll be aligning with it all day, be open to the messages & remember to touch it from time to time to get the little reminders it will be sending you.

Simple, right? Sounds easy. BUT…don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got!

As you do this for a few days, it may get a bit more difficult. You’ll start to realize that it’s about proving to yourself that you can start something & you can stick with it, Chick Pea. I learned a totally different lesson that I had not expected to get….a lesson in COMMITMENT. Wow. I can do this & so can you.

Here are a few tips to help you along that worked for me:

  • Put a post-it note on your alarm clock or morning mirror
  • Place your oracle cards or crystal bag RIGHT NEXT to your bed so its the 1st thing you see in the morning
  • Keep yourself accountable. For every morning that I skip my crystal reading, I’ll make a $5 Kiva loan to help end poverty. Or what else can you dream up?
  • How about a crystal hottie buddy? Can we buddy up below in the comments? CALLING ALL CRYSTAL HOTTIES!! Rallying the troops! Keep each other accountable.
  • I’ll tell you what. Declaring it on YT in my video (as I did above) made me SUPER accountable. Do it! Or blog it or Facebook it, whatever. Just declare & watch the magic happen!
  • How about a sparkly reward? I’m still thinking about my reward for doing this. How about a new glittery crystal, or a class or workshop or a nice relaxing spa treatment?

So, you ready?! Declare below in the comments that you commit to the Crystal Hottie Challenge! I’m so excited to hear about your revelations. Please come back & post about the treasure you unearth from within YOURSELF.
