Do Others Think You’re Woo-Woo Weird? 3 Steps to Own Your Sparkly Shit!

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Everyday/Personal Stuffs, life's purpose 27 Comments

Are you uncomfy coming out of the “crystal closet“?

Afraid others will think you’re weird, not get you or think that you’re just totally out to lunch?
“What is all this sage burning, crystal collecting, essential oil rubbing wacko-ness?”

I get it. It’s hard when everyone around you is not doing the same thing.

And they don’t really get it.
Story Time!
This 1 time I went to the doctor’s office & had my doc probing around with her stethoscope to check my heartbeat and had to explain to her what those hard lumps were protruding from my bra. She had a complete & total poker face while I told her that “those were my crystal companions for the day’s energies that I wanted to infuse into my electromagnetic field”.

She didn’t say another word about it & went on to the next thing.

THAT was uncomfy even for me (**I’m not going to pretend that “Oh, I’m so confident, I don’t have a problem telling ANYONE about my crystals“. Just being real with ya here), but I just put it out there anyway. **I have no idea what she made of it, but I’m hysterical laughing right now thinking about it again & typing this out!**

I even find it difficult to just explain why I don’t like to use a microwave or the regular laundry detergent that everyone else is using. That is, unless I know someone really well & don’t mind lovingly antagonizing them (like my parents). It’s also so much easier to discuss with someone who is obviously receptive & wanting to learn. But when they’re not receptive…well…having to explain yourself in these situations ain’t my idea of a good time. It’s usually met with resistance or a tinge of ridicule.

Am I right?
1. Confidence through Science
I do have a healthy amount of confidence around discussing what I do when I’m directly asked or it’s unavoidable. And I know that’s b/c I can explain the science behind how & why the crystals work.

And this is what I teach to students in my courses as well.

2. Make Peace with Who You Are
A while back I wrote a blog post about being me, the real me.

Oh, I felt quite un-easy writing that at the time.

But contrary to what I thought, the real me was welcomed with open arms. That blog post went viral and as you can see from how many comments I got on it, struck a very real chord with the Crystal Hottie Community. 🙂

So my advice now is just own it!

And guess what? You’d be surprised how many people come out of the woo-woo closet themselves when they know its safe to talk about this shizzle with you!

I had lots of experience with this while I was still a science teacher.

You would think those in the academic community would be very closed off to this sort of thing, but when it was last resort time on many situations, many in that community (even a school police resource officer) came to me to ask what crystals & other energetic work they could do to remedy their problem.
3. Find a Community
Being in a group of other like-minded people who are also cuckoo-for-crystals can be so empowering & nourishing b/c they’re all going through the same stuff as you. We need each other b/c being part of a community also gives us confidence & strength!

Yeah, this may also mean that you need to spend less time (or remove yourself completely) from hanging with people who are holding you back & won’t accept who you are.

Try to find a group either in person or online that have these 3 things going for them (b/c not all groups do!):

  • members are supportive
  • offers motivation & inspiration
  • holds a positive vibe (no gossiping, negativity is frowned on & moderated, etc.)

Finding a group like this does WONDERS for allowing you to be YOU and encouraging you to grow into your full potential. It can be an in-person group or even a virtual online one.

I can help you with #1 & #3 from above. And I’ve seen #2 come naturally as a result of providing #1 & #3 to my students in my Certified Crystal Healer Course.

Not to say you cannot achieve those things on your own. You most certainly can! All you have to do is put your mind & energy towards it.

But if you’d like me to help along on this path, my course will be opening up for enrollment very soon & this will be the last enrollment for 2016. Enrollment will only be open for a few days so if you’d like to take a look, check it out here.

Are you ready to fling those doors open, Crystal Hottie?  Maybe you already have and you’re merrily cruising along the glitter highway.  Or, maybe you’ve been looking for a tribe like ours? A Crystal Community to sparkle, shine, transform & grow with?  Where do you stand right now?  Tell us in the comments below.

Living in Alignment with Your Life’s Purpose

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, energy work, interview, life's purpose 9 Comments

Hi Crystal Hottie!

I’ve got another “Crystal Healer Interview” today! Yes, more fresh, new & inspiring crystal perspectives from others that are living & breathing this crystal path.

And just in case you’re not familiar with what exactly is goin’ down…these Crystal Healer Interviews allow me to introduce you to crystal healing from another perspective (other than my own). So we’ve got a few Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers & Advanced Crystal Masters who are so generously sharing their stories with us. 

Well, I’m excited to let you meet super-cute, ambitious & talented HMCA Advanced Crystal Master, Ryelle Eterna of www.crystalrockstar.com.

Today’s message is about living in alignment with your life’s purpose.

Ryelle shares with us some amazing ideas she’d like to realize in the future: think “uber-lux-crystal-spa-experience”! Plus, a warning about working with moldavite.

And Here’s Ryelle …

♥♥♥
What crystal has had the biggest effect on you?
Moldavite has had the biggest effect on me lately.

A few years ago, I purchased a raw piece…didn’t affect me at all. Then earlier this year, I felt called to work with moldavite again. I purchased and started wearing a faceted moldavite and diamond pendant and the combination of these two high vibration crystals really worked on activating my energies and clearing out my throat chakra issues. WARNING: I would limit wearing the pendant for only a short period of time because keeping it on too long would result in my throat getting really sore and raspy; almost to the point of losing my voice! [{Insert from me, Hibiscus} I also warn of working with moldavite too much in this blog post].
Since working with that combination, so many synchronicities of new-found knowledge, meeting like-minded people and connecting with guides started to occur!

What is your most favorite crystal in the whole wide world and why?
Tugtupite!

[caption id="attachment_17860" align="aligncenter" width="600"] By Parent Géry (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons[/caption]I first learned about it in the Book of Stones when I was taking the my Hibiscus Moon courses. I consider this crystal my favorite because of tugtupite’s properties of tenebrescence and fluorescence, and the metaphysical stories centered around it being a mineral aphrodisiac!

I fell in love with this crystal without even being able to touch it in real life. I even wrote about it in my blog a while ago to plant the seed of hoping to own this crystal one day.

For a while I searched for the perfect tugtupite piece, but I couldn’t find just the right one.

Then one day while visiting a gem show, I found the perfect sized pendant and it was love at first sight!

I even grabbed a few extras to put in my shop in case others were interested in experiencing this crystal’s energies. ♥

After working with tugtupite for a bit now, I also consider it my current fav because of my attraction towards crystals from Greenland (like Nuummite). Also, since this crystal “lights” up with sunlight and UV light, I feel like it’s energetically working on different dimensions and auric layers that are not seen with the human eye. I think of it as my multi-dimensional spectrum crystal!
What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this crystal-path?
The expansion of conscious awareness in how I live my life and how I interpret my current reality.

Introducing crystals into your life can bring on a paradigm shift where you start to live more in alignment with your spiritual purpose and the veil of 3D life starts to dissipate. I believe a greater understanding of your purpose and your life experiences start to unravel once you entrain your body and subtle body with the positive energies of vibrational tools…like crystals.

{Here’s a video of Ryelle on a rock-hounding adventure!}:

What are your BIG DREAMS now that you’re an ACM (Advanced Crystal Master)?
My biggest dream would be to create an ultimate crystal healing spa that involves all things crystal and includes color, sound and light therapies…that uses crystal charged, healthier water alternatives instead of harmful chlorine and fluoridated water. It would be a dream to have a spa like this aligned with a positive energy ley-line that has an ocean view amidst nature with beautiful weather!

I would also love to one day perform healing retreats in beautiful tropical locations. It would be a dream to allow people to heal, relax and rejuvenate during their vacation time. I envision a retreat with crystal healing sessions, nature hikes, organic vegan menus for detoxing, yoga, sun and star-gazing, meditation, dance, water activities  and body/massage treatments!

Our society is so programmed to work so much, that we are so disconnected with our inner selves and don’t have enough time to nurture ourselves. Creating a healing retreat where people can raise their vibration, consciousness levels and heal at the same time would be a dream come true!
What do you love most about working with crystals?
What I love most about working with crystals is when you work with them for a while and then start to feel their vibrational effects.
The energy crystals exude can bring such profound experiences!
I feel everyone should experience the feelings that crystals can bring. For some it takes time, and for others, the effects are instant.

Another reason I love working with crystals is the feeling you get when you find the right crystal by using your intuition and connecting with it. It’s like finding a long-lost soul mate or treasure!
Do you have any advice for anyone who is considering this path?
Believe in yourself and follow your intuition.

Don’t feel pressured to have to purchase every type of crystal on the market. I was overwhelmed at the amount of crystals out there at the beginning of my practice and would sometimes fall into the hype of what everyone else was trying and using. Different crystals have different vibrations, just like how people are different and have their unique energies and personalities. What may work for one, may not work for another.

I believe you should tune into your needs and observe your energetic reactions, your intuitive gut feelings and dream messages, to see what crystal calls out to you and what you are strongly attracted to. I believe those crystals will be most beneficial to your healing, conscious awakening and energetic make-up. Then once you become more sensitive and intuitive to subtle energies, apply these practices to your clients’ healing.

Finding Your Life’s Purpose Doesn’t Have To Be Hard. Read These 3 Tips

Hibiscus Moon life's purpose 4 Comments

You can probably recall, as a child, being asked what it was you wanted to be when you grew up. Maybe you had that 1 thing that you wanted to be or maybe half a dozen or more answers rolled off your tongue in reply, the possibilities seemed endless!!

We’re all born with gifts & natural abilities, though as we grow & begin to move through adulthood, these gifts, talents & abilities, get narrower, become limited, are harder to access.

I decided to write this post b/c I often ask on my Facebook page if you’re living your life’s purpose, whether it be related to crystals or otherwise. I often see many responding that they don’t know what their life purpose is. They don’t know what they’re supposed to be doing.

You might not believe you have a special gift, but you do! In fact, it might seem like everyone around you knows what they’re good at, is following their passion, but you’re stuck, working a job you don’t enjoy or that leaves little time for anything else.

The good news is, there are always ways to find & then honor & cultivate the gifts you have.

I think we’ve all experienced being in a rut before or just floundering, not knowing what we’re here on Mama Earth to do. It’s that seemingly endless cycle of mundane tasks that we feel we must do, where you might be going through the motions but not fully engaging with your life. Maybe you are waiting for your situation to change, maybe you simply don’t know what to do to change your situation. Getting stuck in a rut can feel frustrating, it can feel like it’s permanent, but it’s not. You only have to commit yourself to working your way out of it, and eventually, you will. And finding your life’s purpose is the key.
3 Tips on How to Find Your Life’s Purpose
1. The first tip to working yourself out of any situation like this is to acknowledge & accept it. You are not going to be able to do anything about your situation if you don’t 1st admit that there’s something you’d like to change. OK, now that that’s out of the way…

Crystal tip: pink calcite will assist you with acknowledging & accepting

2. The next thing to do is figure out what makes you HAPPY! What makes your soul sing? Doing that…that’s usually your life’s purpose right there! If you don’t know what makes you happy then start trying many different things. Even things that you didn’t think you’d like. Just go do something to bust out of the boredom and open up new ways of being to yourself,. You may discover your unique gift, talent or ability  only when you’re thrown into an unexpected situation! However you come about to realizing your gift,  know that it is something that deserves your honor.

You deserve to know what living on this Mama Earth is all about.

Crystal tip: carnelian can really fire up your creativity so you can think up new ways to go exploring!

3. The next step is to accept that this might take a little time, but you will realize your life’s purpose. It’s easy to want instant gratification, to expect that just because we’ve realized we’re in a rut that we’re instantaneously going to be out of it, but often these things happen gradually.

A rut is a pattern, a habit, and just like it takes time to pick up a habit, it also takes time to break one.

Sometimes our gifts are not initially what we want them to be. This might be a difficult pill to swallow…say, you feel very strongly about painting but are not a very good painter. This isn’t to say you can’t go after that dream, but you may find yourself getting really frustrated. So let’s say you’re interested in painting & you’ve enjoyed it for a long time. But you begin to notice that people are constantly telling you that you have such good insight  & are so easy to talk to. People find it easier to talk to you than others in their life. Just by being someone whom others seek out, you’re using your gift & helping others while you do so. So perhaps, being a life coach is your gift. If the thought of doing that makes your soul sing then you’ve found it; your life’s purpose.

Crystal tip: fire agate will assist you in recognizing & realizing your life’s purpose

It can be easy to overlook your own unique gifts when they might not align with what you think they should be.  Your gift is something you can give to those around you & is in total alignment with your soul–it is your purpose in this lifetime.
