Back around Christmas time I filmed this video but wanted to post it here now (n case anyone missed it) b/c this vid is a hidden little gem.

I explains a few common concepts & questions I get asked about quartz points & black tourmaline (2 of my fav. crystals) so you may find it interesting too:

  • Clear quartz is a must-have for your collection. It’s so versatile & can be used for ANY purpose so you’ve got to have 1 of these babies. It’s also a very powerful amplifier! Quartz amplifies any vibrational frequencies, including our own.
  • Black Tourmaline is ULTRA-important to have around, I call it the Big Daddy of grounding. This stone has the unique ability to transmute & neutralize energy & help any being to ground & connect back to Mother Earth.
  • BTW…I call this guy…

    Many Crystal Blessings to you all!

    P.S. Do you have 2 crystal fav’s? If so, what are they? Please post in the comments below. 🙂

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

    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.

    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!

    Mineral Magic @ The Grand Canyon

    Hibiscus Moon blogging, grounding 14 Comments

    Some of you know that last week was a vacation away spent in Las Vegas & the Grand Canyon (a little gift to myself after writing my tookus off creating curriculum for our Advanced Crystal Master Course….goals & rewards….super-important ’round here). I completed the bulk of the course, opened it up for enrollment to our Certified Crystal Healer graduates (love you all!) then booked the trip to celebrate!! Wooohoooot!

    I’ve been wanting to walk the SkyWalk on the canyon west rim since they built it 5 years ago. Its a shame that this photo didn’t capture the glass bottom! This was the most amazing thing ever…to walk out over the crevasse of the canyon on glass…WILD!! The camera did catch a friendly orb right in front of my face (click on the pic to see!). Someone was there watching over me that day. Thank you.


    …also harvested some Grand Canyon rocks with their grounding red hematite, quartz & gypsum…& did some much needed meditation & healing time there.

    We even mined a little silver. Yes, I found 2 teeny pieces using this panning method!!

    Some musings from the Edge of the Grand Canyon:

    Vegas was the quickest (& a pretty fun way to get there from South Florida!)

    The Grand Canyon’s energies are very healing, grounding & cleansing, no doubt to all the hematite there. So much personal healing was done while I was there. Once you’re there you realize how truly magical it is. Plus its perfect for geo-GEEKING…1 of my fav. past times. 😉 Now that I’ve finally been there I need to go back, stay longer, experience more, go deeper.

    Some day.

    Oh yeah, hey! I’m putting together a Grand Canyon giveaway to gift some of you with a few magical rocks & other gifties I harvested from the Canyon while there. I wish I had more pockets to get more!! So stay tuned to my blog to learn when I get that all organized.

    Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon? Did you feel it was very healing & grounding too? OR did you get something else completely? Please post in the comments below! I’d love to hear your take on it.

    HUGE HUGS & BIG Spirit Blessings!

    How To Kick a Cold in the A** with Crystals

    gem elixir tea crystals for cold and flu

    Yep, yep, yep…crystals for cold and flu!

    Ohhh, the 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, blah, blah, blah.

    Wrong season, I know…but I ended up succumbing to a cold 2 weeks ago; I got hit hard & I figured this is a perfect opportunity to let you all know how I use my crystals to bounce out of that (although I wasn’t bouncing too much at the time!)

    Now, usually, I’m pretty resilient to these things but some of you may know that I’ve been doing some frequent acupuncture treatments to treat my allergies & I’m pretty certain that moved some energy around & temporarily lowered my immune system, allowing a nasty virus to sneak in.

    I also think my recent excessive work habits & lack of sufficient sleep as of late also greatly contributed.

    WORD TO THE WISE: This is not something that I normally condone but until I’m 100% done on my teaching contract this is how it has to be for me…only 4 more weeks to go!!! Then I’m gonna be full time  BOOBS TO THE WALL Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy! (quipped that little phrase from my chica, TipToeChick). hee hee!

    Crystals Are Here To Heal You: crystals for cold and flu
    Of course, I immediately pulled out my  carnelian & aventurine to self treat.  Carnelian is my usual go-to stone for colds. When I feel a little something coming on, I work with it, pop some garlic or echinacea capsules & that usually nips it in the bud. But I was a little late to the party this time so ended up having to pull out all the stops.


    1. Carnelian: (boosts life-force energy, strengthens the immune system, boosts vitality & fortifies the physical body)

    [caption id="attachment_3269" align="aligncenter" width="554"] Carnelian[/caption]

    2. Aventurine – (general health + vitality enhancer )…be sure you’re using the green kind!

    3. Flu Tip: If you’re dealing with a serious case of the flu then work with “The Dolphin Stone”, larimar (calm, cooling, soothing energy):

    So what do I DO with the crystals? There are many things you can do but these are just the few things I chose to do:

    • First thing I did was drop a carnelian stone in my water bottle = Instant Gem Elixir!
    • Then I put together a quick little mojo bag to carry in my pocket & keep under my pillow of 1 carnelian, 1 aventurine & 1 small clear quartz point to amplify both of their energies. The bag was green to resonate the green frequency of healing. 🙂
    • Then I made a loose tea blend using only my favorite organic dried herbs of licorice root, marshmallow root & echinacea purpurea root all steeped in a carnelian + aventurine gem elixir water using my loose tea infuser ball (actually a heart!) meant purposely for healing with its aventurine holder.


    Energy Is Here to Heal You

  • Next, my gorgeous friend (full of healing energy herself) Marie Flora Peterson sent me one of her meditation downloads. This was perfect. I lit some green candles, heated some organic healing + fragrant eucalyptus essential oil (Eucalyptus globulus) in a burner while I laid down on my couch in my healing sacred space & placed 2  aventurine on my heart chakra. Ohhhhh, this was so recuperating!!!
  • Yes, more acupuncture. I knew another treatment would move everything back into alignment. Dr. Christa, my acupuncture doctor had me feeling much better & more at ease.
  • Once I was on the mend & feeling much better, I booked a long overdue general grooming quickie at favorite spa, Namaste Salon & Spa  (she doesn’t have a website…note to self: convince her of the benefits of being on the Internets!) Getting myself cleaned up with some eyebrow waxing, ear candling + a quick toenail polish change (only $10 bux!) was really good medicine for my spirit.
  • Mama Earth is Here to Heal You

  • Lots of rest. I know I was depleted in this area. I took a couple sick days & allowed myself to sleep & lay around as much as I wanted. Boy, did I NEED that!
  • I also felt I needed some deep grounding. I got barefoot & placed my bare feet on the Earth for 20 minute intervals; Earthing! Why? Mother Earth’s surface is covered with balancing restorative electrons (negative ions), which are super-attracted to us. They’re great b/c they neutralize the excess positive ions (free radicals) in the body (very healing). BUT usually, we’re totally insulated from Mother Earth’s restoring electrons with rubber soled shoes & carpeted or tiled floors so we’re usually really  depleted from these restorative energies (especially if you’ve been working under fluorescent lights, cooped up, in front of a computer screeen, etc.) When we’re barefoot we’re PERFECT energy conductors!! That’s why animals are so grounded…are they wearing rubber soles? Emerging research shows that Earthing allows us to HEAL.  Want to learn more about Earthing? Check this book out:
  • So, that’s it. I licked & kicked it in half the time it usually would’ve taken me!! YES. And revived my body, mind & spirit in the process. Knowing how (& continuing to learn more & more) to work with energies & Mother Earth’s healing tools is such an AMAZING blessing + GIFT!!

    I’m so excited to keep learning more + more +more & you’ll be able to as well!!! Have you heard about the FREE 2012 Energy Healers Conference? Join us to learn more ways to revitalize, glow & heal with energy!!!

    Bright Sparkling Healthy Blessings to you!
