Got Crystals? Don’t Know What to Do with Them All? 4 Action Steps for You!

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing 30 Comments

I have a question for you:

Too many crystals, not enough time?

I sense that this may be starting to become a wee-little problem in our Crystal Hottie community. Some Crystal-Hoarding, perhaps?

Are we in need of a 12 Step Program here? 😉 


Hey! I’m the worst offender! I’m not immune in any way.
So sensing this issue is prevalent in our community, I recently asked this question on my Facebook Page:


And here are just a few of the great responses I received that prompted me to write this blog post…


post post2 post3 post5post4

So let’s try to figure out what may be going on for some of us:

  • Maybe you just keep acquiring more & more sparkly babies, thinking a bigger collection will make it all click!
  • Maybe you keep telling yourself you don’t yet have the “right combo” of crystals…just yet.
  • Perhaps you simply think you just need ENOUGH TIME! **You’ll get to all that someday.** 😉
  • Or maybe you even think that someday you’ll read enough crystal books & somehow remember what all the thousands of crystals are & what to use them for. *snicker, snicker* Good luck with that 1! It’s a great goal to shoot for, but…fuhget about it!  You’ll never learn what all the crystals are for, what each individual crystal’s properties & characteristics are…b/c there are over 4,500 different minerals & more being discovered all the time!! Ain’t happening, Chick Pea.

I KNOW how this plays out b/c I’ve tried & thought all these things myself!!

Let me tell you a little-bitty secret:
“Someday” usually never comes.
Yep, just as the Creedence Clearwater song lyrics say…
“Well I’m here to tell you now each and every mother’s son, that you better learn it fast, you better learn it young ‘Cause someday never comes…”

Us humans…we’re really good at creating all sorts of excuses that can forever support procrastination. Right?

Let’s get real here, Lima Bean.

How many things have you said “one day” or “Bucket List!” to & actually completed? That ain’t how manifestation works. Someday will always be someday and will never be NOW!


And no judgement here.

If you’ve decided & made peace with the fact that you’re totally OK with simply being a crystal collector & never actually getting intimate with their energy & healing potential….there’s NOTHING wrong with that.

But if you’re intention IS to get energy-intimate, then please KEEP READING!

Action Steps to Learn How to Work with all your Crystals


Focused Blocks of Sacred Time

Not enough time?

Too busy?

Sorry, but BULLSCHIST!

First, you need to decide that it’s a priority to you. Then you need to make a commitment to your goal so it doesn’t get pushed off to “later”. You’ll always make of your commitments what you put into them. So stop watching TV, get off of social media or watching the negativity news stories on the local news or CNN….I bet you’ll find all sorts of time if you just cut out 1/2 of that shiz.

Still feel like you don’t have enough time?
All you need is a few minutes a day to work with your chosen crystal. Yeah, like 3-4 min. Who doesn’t have a few minutes for something as important as this?

You need to get real with yourself! Is learning about your crystals important enough to you?

If the answer is “YES”, then carve out that time in a weekly calendar. Make it a repeating weekly appointment on your smart phone now. Yep, do it now.

Then make that time sacred. Don’t let any freakin’ thing or anyone get in the way. Treat it like a doctor’s appointment…b/c you know they’ll charge you for that shit if you miss the dang appointment! It should just as important as that.


Eliminate Crystal Overwhelm

If you’re like me & have a TON O’ CRYSTALS then you may be suffering from Crystal-Overwhelm.


It happens to the best of us. You get paralyzed by all the crystals you see in the shops or all the crystals you’ve amassed for yourself & you have no idea where to begin or which crystal to go to.

So you just freeze & do nada. :/

How to get unfrozen? Just listen to your intuition.



THIS IS KEY & what I’m always preaching: Just use your intuition, Crystal Hottie.

If you get quiet & still you’ll notice that you’re naturally attracted to 1 particular crystal (usually 1, but sometimes more) for whatever reason. Maybe it’s aesthetically pleasing to you or you have a deep inner knowing that you’re attracted to that 1 crystal for a very good reason. Don’t ignore that!

Don’t worry about what the books say.

Go with your gut.

You have that feeling for a reason.♥


Publicly Commit

This step is super-effective.

If you’re comfy with it, social media is great for this!! In fact, social motivation is 1 of the most powerful motivators there is.

Whenever I want to commit to doing anything, I tell my online followers (whether on YouTube, Facebook or Instagram) or my Mastermind group what I’m up to & I ask them to hold me accountable! This way I know that if I don’t check in like I’m supposed to, they’ll be asking me about it.

Totally works like a charm for keeping me motivated to stay on track!

Maybe you don’t want to go quite as public with your intentions, but you can at least let your inner circle know what you’re up to & tell them you need their help on this. Tell them to ask you questions & to ask you about your goal to learn more about your crystals when they see you online or talk to you in person.

Ask for some accountability & you’ll get it!


Overcome the Fear of Failing at Crystal Healing

I really even hesitate to call the work we do with crystals “crystal “healing” (but cont. to do so b/c so many don’t understand what you’re talking about if you call it anything else).

So; “crystal healing, therapy, energy work”…whatever you want to call it…many think to themselves…

“Who am I to think I can do this? I’m going to fail. It won’t work.”


Because you cannot fail. First of all, bear in mind that when working with crystals, the “healing” taking place is a 2 way street…it goes both ways. You’re simply acting as a conduit for the work to take place, so that takes a lot of the pressure off, right? It usually totally dissipates the fear that so many of us have around this sort of work.

Yes, yes, yes…of course you’ll have to do some work, but if you do the work, you cannot fail. Simply think about who you’re helping, whether it be yourself or someone else, find inspiration in the fact that you are doing good, you’re bringing the light & you’re simply acting as the go-between for the subtle forces to work through you. That’s all. 😉

You can do this. I believe in you.

You have ENDLESS potential!

  1. The other thing you can do if you are suffering from crystal overwhelm or hoarding is pass them along to someone else who may need to work with them. I know, it’s hard, but it is a way to reduce the amount you have while at the same time, helping others. I’m a prime example of a crystal hoarder; they cover darn-near every inch of my house (and my car, and my classroom, around my neck, tucked into my boots, etc…). I make a point to go through them about twice a year and figure out who no longer calls to me and then I pass them along. I even have a system for that too! I start with my niece and nephew (who are just becoming rock hounds), then to my other family members, then to specific friends. The rest I bring to my local rock shop and see if anyone working there is drawn to them (not the customers- I’m not about to take business away from my “home away from home”!). If there are any left, I consider the reason(s) they weren’t picked. Maybe I’m still meant to work with them. Hope this helps. )O(

    2. Yaay. Sam, good system,I do similar, except, taking around to the rock shop…didnt think of that.Im a clinical bodyworker, so I have extra, to give away to clients,also, have been doing that for 30 yrs. I wear crystals everyday,in my bra, also(I know not an option for you.hahaha!was wondering if there were any guys on here, Nice to meet you. Married my husband because he was a rock climber, and future prospector. Love me, love and respect my stone friends.

      1. Hey, Need more than that, LIMA BEAN? I have given away a lot to “A”
        friend in need. She probably does not remember what I told her either. I might just send her this site. She has more time than me, but, I am guilty also. If I could just remember what I told her at the time……
        miss all the info You gave me in the class I started, but could not finish.
        Regards, Cathy Hall

  2. Good tips, thanks. The most helpful thing for me was when you said I’d probably never learn all the crystal properties. I thought there was something wrong with my brain!

  3. Love it. Great idea, share the joy of Crystals the way the universe shares tne joy of them with us. Lets all give at least 1 of our lovely Crystals each away to someone that needs it. What a great way to share and it only has to be one (or more if you like) to fill the planet with light and Joy. May i remind you to cleanse and program it first before gifting. Thank you for this lovely idea. Love and Respect. Nicholas Holden.

    2. awesome idea. i did just that recently. a friend had her twin pass away unexpectedly. i was praying, meditating and sending her reiki when i ‘heard’ a message to give her a crystal. i wound up clearing and programing a clear quartz point (that was two together and told me its name is twin, hmm) and a citrine nugget to give her. she put them on her nightstand and said it was the first night since his passing that she slept well.

  4. Good idea. Especially if you are like me, just getting started and dont have enough crystals to make some of the grids. And no place local to buy crystals. So glad to see this article. I felt that you were describing me and how I was feeling. Thanks

  5. I have not considered myself knowledgeable regarding crystals whoever I have learnt to rust that if I advise someone to obtain a crystal it has relevance to them, as to ones I have there is no more than 20, when I am working with others I ask which are to come out and they tell me. I have never undertaken any study of crystals and yet surprisingly (for me that is not others) I have recently become the facilitator by which spirit has created healing crystal oils which have been highly beneficial to those using them.
    I to consider myself a go between or vessel by which spirit assists.

  6. That is a beautiful gift to give to the people that mean the most to you. And I believe the universe would want that particular person to want that particular crystal. That’s awesome. I’m going to use that also! Thank you!

  7. Each time I buy stones I spend 2-3 nights sleeping with each stone( if it’s not a honker). I also carry them with me all day after I sleep with it. Once my stone is no longer calling to me, I gift them. This great for you and the receiver.

  8. thanks so much for putting it all into perspective and youre really right esp about watching tv total honesty i can make the time 🙂 totally and im going to take your advice about making an appointment to take some time just for learning and development, youre amazing!!! <3

  9. Great advice, thank you! I think part of my problem is that I’m searching for the “perfect” crystal, the one that will unlock all the rest. So what I REALLY need to do is see the perfection in all of them, and do some work!

  10. I have collected and used various crystals and other stones for years. My first was a bloodstone, which I was told could help relieve arthritis pain and remove blockages. I bought several crystal identification books and healing books. After years of casual research I have found that my intuition is my best guide as to what I need and what I should wear. I also use crystals, or river rocks in plants and to raise the energy level of my home. Some for psychic self defense, and others to just make a better connection to the beyond. I believe everyones journey in this is personal, and you can get advise form others, but it is best if you just experience it for yourself. So buy what you are attracted to and let it talk to you. Maybe you will feel something, a mood change or strengthened by a stone, or maybe a stone just looks more vibrant than all the others to you. Let your unconscious self be your guide. Good luck and health and happiness to you all.

  11. So, I just wanted to say 2 things here real quick. 1 – thank you so much for this article. It has been incredibly helpful. You are such a beautiful soul and I wish many many blessings upon you and your business. 2nd- I started doing something with my crystals that I heard about through an Etsy shop. A regifting of crystals. Once I feel a crystal no longer serves me and my higher purpose or intentions, I gift them back to Mother Earth. I find somewhere that is closest to, if not exact, their natural place in this Earth and bury them there. The only thing with this is, it can sometimes require a lot of research and time. But I feel that if Spirit can put years into connecting me with a crystal, then I can return the effort. Some I don’t have to go far for and some I do. And if its really too far away I try to find someone in the part of the world where my crystal needs to be and I’ll talk with them about helping me out. Most people are very eager and happy to help bury a crystal back to Nature. Or, if they feel it, they keep it for a while then bury it. I just can’t help but think about someone 10, 20, 100 years from now digging in the Earth and coming across a beautiful crystal. Some little kid playing in the dirt. Or some lost soul wandering around speaking to Spirit asking for a sign, then looking down and seeing something shinny sticking out of the ground. Oohh!! My heart races! But please remember if you do decide to do this, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE research your crystals natural environment so that it can thrive and survive. Thank you for allowing me this moment in time. Light & Love to all! Namaste

  12. I appreciate your 4 step system and will utilize It working with my stones and crystals. I have been so busy with work that I’m neglecting everything in my life. I just realized yesterday that I’ve even forgotten some of their names. It’s time to balance my life and get back to what I truly love.

    Thanks so much Hibiscus Moon. Namaste

  13. Hello, I just love all the knowledge you give us. I live in India and really wish I could do your course. Maybe some day. Love and blessings to all of you.

  14. Hi .. I’m a newbie to your blog and I must say I LOVE IT!!! I’ve adored “rocks” all my life and they are everywhere around my house both inside and outside. I love your entry … I’m setting my iPhone calendar and writing it in my “hard copy” calendar so I don’t forget spending a couple daily minutes with them. I, as well, love to gift them to my friends who are just becoming crystal lovers. I used to gift only necklaces that I’ve made with the semi-precious stones, but they are now into the actual stones, so now a lot of my lovely crystals have found great homes and are helping with healing for them. I loved the other ideas as well … something to think about. So glad that my friend who is new to crystals told me about your site! Yay for both of us!

  15. Interestingly enough, I could see how I could could easily fall into this trap.
    I have a nice variety of Crystal’s. And every time I get an email from the sellers website, or I read about a specific Crystal I right away Start thinking, maybe I should order it because it’s 20 or 50 % off.
    I hardly did anything with the ones I already have and I’m already looking for more.

    My biggest issue that’s keeping me from useing the ones I have is that I forget what I set them for. I keep some of them in a pouch on me most of the time. And have the rest still in the box from the company. Im wondering if it works if I forgot what I set it for.

    I do need to make a spread sheet for reference.
    Or is there an app, were we could set it up by name and use?

  16. Beautiful picture of you on the beach. So peaceful , soft, the breeze of the ocean, the smell of the salt water, feelings of love, passion, and hope. I instantly saw my self right where you were standing feeling alive and energized and connected with Spirit and the earth. Gotta love it! Take a deep breath and take it all in. Make a memory. We have to have something to hang on to as life slips by. life is short so take every chance for your mind and spirit to find peace.
    Thy will be done!

  17. Or maybe you even think that someday you’ll read enough crystal books… That’s me! I buy all the crystals and all the crystal books and never take the time with any of it.. Thank you for removing this unrealistic expectation from myself that one day I will know all and that I can’t begin my crystal journey until I do. I will try these steps, thank you as always!

  19. This is what has happened to me, I started buying them when I became interested in crystals and even though I have ones that I work with quite a bit, I ended up with a bunch of crystals that I just didn’t connect with. 😔 However I have no idea how to find another home for them, as I am the only person I know who is “into” them. Etsy is impossible because they only allow handmade and eBay is a vast wasteland of many many sellers of crystals. I honestly don’t know what I’m going to do with them. Some of them are too nice to just bury back into the earth, but I have no way of selling them realistically. I hate to just donate them, because I spent quite a bit of money on these beautiful specimens.

  20. Love Rocks Gems Crystals! Sleep with them every night! Pick different stones or gems or rocks ,one in each hand ,wake up in morning with them still in hands or nights lose in bed ,under my pillow,under my bed,carry different stones,Gems,Rocks in car,pockets,around my neck,all over the house in every room,at work!

Find them in creek close to my house I call them to me , here is what I say..crystals,crystals at the creek…crystals crystals come to me … crystals crystals Show yourself to me ..crystals crystals I’ll set you free…then I ask if anyone wants to go with me and look ,and if their are any that wants to go ,they make their presence known….if not I go to other places on the creek…you would not believe what I have found! I always thank the Universe every time I find one! That are the ones I sleep with and carry,because they came to me for a reason…off the cart…have found what I call Energy Stones ! Bursting with Energy…Wow…I could go on and on ….would like to write a book called sleeping with stones….
