Grounding Tips for Balance in a High Flying World

Hibiscus Moon earthing, grounding 10 Comments

This Crystal Q&A question comes from Geert in Belgium (Can I just take a moment to gush about our worldwide sparkly community?! I’m so grateful to have our HMCA Certified Crystal Healers now in 10 different countries around the world! (Find one near you!)

Sharing the love & knowledge of crystal healing, that’s what it’s all about & I’m so freakin’ happy that we’re on this path together :).  Thank You Sparkle Gems!

BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. Crystals should be used as a compliment to & not as a replacement for regular medical care & consultations. Let me also warn you that this is a link-rich post. I have lots of good resources here to refer you to. ALL of the products that I recommend are products that I have personally used & HIGHLY recommend. Some of the links below are affiliate links that will earn me a commission if you purchase through them, but you can certainly purchase through a different link. Just wanted you to know that I wouldn’t have them here if I didn’t totally believe in them.

So, Geert asks:

“When I ground, but my body is not technically connected to the ground, is this OK? Will we still receive the benefits of grounding when we are on the 10th floor of a building, or on a train, or on a plane?”

Watch this vid for my answer to Geert’s question…
 Grounding Tips for Balance in a High Flying World

 

Grounding is definitely a good idea & a wonderful practice in the world of energetic healing & crystal healing:

We need to ground to stay balanced, so that we don’t get depleted w/ an electron deficiency!!! In today’s fast paced electro savvy world, we’re surrounded by positively charged ions & are mostly insulated & disconnected from the healing effect of Mama Earth. In order to stay balanced, the best thing to do is have skin to earth contact, picking up the earth’s natural plethora of negative ions.

Because of those new shoes, strappy sandals, or fancy boots you’re  kickin’, you’re feet don’t get to touch the earth & accumulate the negative ions that our great planet provides aplenty.  Really all you need to do to ground is walk around barefoot on the Earth … (I recommend doing this as much as possible).

If you wanna learn more about grounding with the earth’s energy (earthing), there’s a whole book about this that I highly recommend:

But, if you’re an urban Crystal Hottie, or you live in a cold climate, well it’s probably not really that practical to go barefoot very often.  Luckily,  we can use substitutes for our practical needs (love me some practical answers).
Crystals to the rescue!

What about when you’re off the ground & you’re actually physically disconnected from the earth?

  • Use crystals in your meditation, grab that black tourmaline,  focus your intention and visualize rooting and grounding into Mother Earth.
  • For travel, I  have another blog post on that right here on Crystals & Travel which includes my special mojo kit for travel.
  • Here’s that other video I referred to on Crystals for Grounding.
  • When traveling in a train or an airplane, you need to set a strong intention during the flight & take extra special care after the flight;
  • Carry a hematite stone & use it to help balance your electromagnetic field & alleviate jet lag.
  • Also take your shoes off during the flight (and rub your tootsies w/ the hematite).

BEWARE & Combat Radiation After a Flight
What? Radiation on an airplane?

Yes, I know from my last post on this topic that this is shocking news to many. Yep, flying the “friendly” skies gives as much as 1,000 times the radiation of those airport body scanners everyone is yammering on about. It’s not actually the airplane doing this but our closer proximity to the Sun. Dr. Mercola, natural health expert explains:

“Nearly everyone forgets that when you fly, there is also ionizing radiation exposure. In fact, on a typical transcontinental flight at 30,000 feet you will be exposed to 20 microsieverts of radiation. That is 1,000 times the dose you receive from the scanner.”

So what to do about that?

1. Load up on anti-oxidants before, during & after your flight. Both in supplement form and naturally through your food: blueberries, leafy greens, colloidal silver

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="613"] This is the kind we use in our household. Please consult with your own doctor on when & how much to take.[/caption]

 

2. Take an Crystal Anti-Radiation Mineral Bath as quickly as you can after the flight. Ingredients:

  • If you have access to a specimen of colemanite (used just for this purpose b/c it has a low hardness and the frequent baths will eventually cause it to lose its luster); [caption id="attachment_14902" align="alignright" width="178"] Ready for my Radiation Detox Bath![/caption]

    colemanite is boron-based, thereby accepting & ionizing radiation

  • 1 hematite (use a polished one or it will rust)
  • 1 cup of plain epsom salts
  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • 1 cup high quality Himalayan Salt
  • 3-4 Tbsp of Sonne’s Detoxification No 7- contains bentonite (mineral-rich volcanic clay), soaks up yuckies, like radiation & helps your body recover quickly

3. Fly at night. No Sun. Genius, right?!! Now those red-eye flights don’t sound so bad.

Oh…here’s that great Grounding Alternative Kit created by the authors of the book; Earthing that I mentioned in the vid:

Hope this helps answer your questions on using crystals to support you while traveling & how to help stay grounded.

Do you have a special crystal that you have to have with you when you travel or if you live in a high-rise? Or a special routine that you do in order to stay grounded & healthy when you’re jet setting? Please share that in the comments below. 

Crystal Blessings!

Crystals Tips for Empaths & Highly Sensitive People

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, grounding 33 Comments

Time for another Crystal Q&A about Crystals for Empaths!
In this session, we talk about a question that comes up often on my Facebook Page.

A question about crystals for empaths…

And so, I’m thrilled that this question came in from Jody which prompted me to make this video for YOU, Crystal Hottie…b/c you may be wondering the same thing!
But first…let’s get into explaining a bit here…
In case you didn’t know, an “Empath” (as defined by Urban Dictionary…love that dictionary!) is:

A person who is capable of feeling the emotions of others despite the fact that they themselves are not going through the same situation.

The ability to pick up on & feel/experience the energy of another can be seen as a gift b/c that extra info can allow you to empathize with others or see things from another view-point.

Or it can be seen as a curse b/c it causes you to be bombarded by extra feelings & emotions you may not want to be dealing with at the moment.
So what can you do?
Steer clear of becoming overwhelmed.

How?

  • Be selective of the situations & environments you place yourself in
  • Have tools & supports at the ready (like crystals & stones)…there are many other tools & supports but I’ll save that for a future blog post.
  • What are the best crystals for empaths & highly sensitive people?

    Ok, Yes… we’ll dive into that in a minute…

    Backing up just a little bit – in this video; Jody also mentioned that she is “new to crystals”. I love a newbie! (dropping into the crystal groove + all the glitter of new healing possibilities!)  Welcome to the world of crystal healing! 😉  I’ve got lots to share!  For starter’s here’s a blog post I’ve done on the 5 crystals that all beginners should have in their crystal kit 😉

    So I’ve chosen 2 unexpected crystals to present to you in this week’s featured vid. The theme is going to be choosing crystals that are both grounding & protecting to assist empaths & highly sensitive peeps.

    Watch this:

     

    Purple Jade – this mama earth beauty is all about spiritual knowledge & associated with the crown chakra & 3rd eye chakra (as well as the Earth Star!!!) It’s a super stone for protecting empaths.

    Another fab crystal for empaths is magnetite…

    Magnetite doesn’t always express itself in a crystalline form that we can see with the naked eye.  But when it does…whoa, Baby! It’s a metal & naturally magnetic, therefore, it helps to align, balance & ground energies.  Magnetite can  balance the polarities within our electromagnetic field while helping with psychic overload or taking on too much energy picked up by light workers & energy healers.

    Sure hope you’ve enjoyed this Crystal Q&A!  If you are an empath or you know someone who can benefit from this information please share!  Tell me, as an empath, have these crystals, or others, worked to help you? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

    Crystal Healing, Protection & Blessings,
