My Current Favorites | Crystals & Otherwise

Hibiscus Moon amethyst, blogging, Crystal Goodness, Videos 53 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve done a video like this … and I’ve noticed these have become quite popular now…for people to do “monthly favorites”

Personally, I kind of waffle back & forth on if I should do one of these again OR not.

It would be great if you could definitely let me know in the comments  (down at the bottom of this page), what you think… if I should do more of this? If this is sparkly enough for you?  Also, if you have recommendations for other stuff I should check out, please share with me!

 

First Favorite!  You know it has to be a crystal to kick this off right? 
Crystals
My favorite crystal right now is Papagoite, and I just finally got a hold of some.:D

This is a difficult mineral to find, much like Ajoite.  You may have heard me go on and on about Ajoite being very difficult to find in a recent blog post, They both come from the same area; the Messina mine in South Africa, but Papagoite is even more rare than Ajoite!

I’ve just recently got two pieces;  one had a very little little bit of the Papagoite tell-tale color in it (bright blue) and the other piece has a little too with a bit more color saturation.

This blue is really hard to describe. It’s very vibrant. It’s less green than Ajoite and the top one in the above pic actually has a phantom within.

Phantoms allow you to move you to the next level…deeper levels of meditation, for example. Phantoms are a natural phenomenon that I teach more about in my Advanced Crystal Masters course + I also created this blog + video about phantom crystals quite some time ago over here. (be forewarned…that’s some really old content from me!)
Rings Please
Then I have my favorite jewelry at the moment.  Yup, in the vid I’m wearing a lot of different jewelry!  Some bracelets made of coral, some carnelian…but my favorites right now are my tiger’s eye ringsI really love these rings.

The one on my pointer finger I just found on clearance in a store for just 5 bucks!  Sparkle Score!!!

And my other tiger’s eye ring (on my ring finger) I had made by an artist on Etsy who unfortunately no longer has her shop or I’d tell you where to get it. 🙁

They’re both Big & Chunky….just like I like ’em.

Aromatherapy Scentsation (+ crystals of course)

Next fav is an essential oil blend called Terrashield made by doTERRA.

BTW, I don’t endorse any particular essential oil brand. I just look for high quality 100% pure essential oils, preferably organic, sustainably crafted & fair trade. 

So, Terrashield is a bug repellent blend and right now, where I live, there’s a lot of little bugs called “no-see-‘ums”.  They’re worse than mosquitoes with their bite that hurt instantly!  A couple of days later you get little welts too. Lovely.

I like to use this Terrashield blend.  It’s really really effective for keeping them at bay. Then I use a little Amethyst along with it; a great insect repelling combo!

I also like to get those little bottles of gemstone chips, you know, the ones that nobody ever knows what to do with?  Well, they’re great for putting a few chips into your essential oil so you can create a special little crystal-infused blend.
Crystal Hottie

My next favorite is actually a Crystal Hottie. ? She’s one of our Facebook commenters & she also happens to be one of our Certified Crystal Healers…and she’s always coming over to my Facebook page and leaving lovely beautiful comments. She’s really active on there…the wonderful Terry Hicks CCH!

Whooohoo! Terry, you’re one of my favorites right now because you always leave such joyful, wonderful, positive comments on page that I am so grateful to receive.

If I’m ever not feeling right in some way, I go over to my Facebook page and I’m sure to see a comment from you & they’re always so sweet, lovely & uplifting, so thank you for that!♥
Mermaid Mojo

Then we have my new mermaid stamp.  Yes, I know, nothing to do with crystals! 

I found this mermaid beauty in a local crafty shop.  It was kind of pricey @ $9.50 but it’s the cutest thing ever!  And, I’ve been stamping this thing all over the freakin’ place.

It’s kind of big and obnoxious for a stamp but she is a mermaid…so it’s totally OK! ?

Hello?

Remember the old school telephone?  Those of you in my courses know that I harp on and on about getting zapped by electromagnetic radiation and electromagnetic fields,  and how we can use crystals to mitigate that

…but you know what?

Your cell phones are probably the worst culprit that you’re most susceptible to…really really bad to keep up to your ear all the time. Really.
Don’t use your cell phones for long conversations.  You just don’t want that shizzle right up near your head for long periods of time.
Best to minimize use with them as much as you can. 

If you do have to have a long conversation on your mobile you can use something like this old school looking receiver and you plug it right into your cell phone! Takes care of that problem.

It comes in a variety of fun color options.  My brother actually gave mine to me. Thoughtful guy!

When I’m at home I have a landline,  so I don’t use my cell phone for any at-home telephone convos. But if you do…if you think you’re going to need to use your cell phone for a long period of time this is a great solution. By using this little sucker, you can keep the cell phone away from your head, at a safer distance.  Not safe, but safer. 
Kind of like safe sex there is no such thing as safe sex, there’s safer sex.  😉

Again nothing to do with crystals…just a favorite.
Crystal Bio-Belt
Back to the crystals. I’ve talked about this in a video before but it’s still a favorite and I’ve been using it a lot lately so I have to tell you about it again.

It’s the bio-belt made by the same company that makes bio-mat but they stopped making them for a while.  So I have mine and people would ask me where I got it and I couldn’t refer them anywhere b/c they weren’t making them at the time. 

But now, they are back at it and offering it again!

This is a belt filled with gem stones of all different kinds of crystals.  Unlike the bio-mat which is all amethyst, the bio-belt has all kinds of different crystals and you get to wrap it around you like a belt. 

You do need to plug it in & initially need to be near an outlet when using this.  But then…you can unplug & just get up and walk around after it’s heated up. However, I’ll often use it when I’m sitting at my desk. 

And, once again, addressing those electromagnetic fields…they’ve taken care of that b/c the bio-belt has a special electromagnetic frequency mitigator that makes it so that the electromagnetic frequencies are harmless to you. Yup, very cool! 

It also has a little controller attached to it so you can change the temp or turn the power off completely & continue to receive the gemmy benefits. Yep, after it’s heated up for like five minutes you can turn it off and its stays warm for up to an hour later.

I absolutely love this thing because it’s portable, allowing you to get stuff done while you’re still getting the crystal healing treatment from the vibrational frequencies of the crystals….and you’re not required to lie down…unless you want to.

Silica Gel

And the last favorite thing I want to talk about today is Silica Gel.  There are different brands, so you want to go ahead and check the reviews & make sure it’s one that you’d like to use. 

This is 1 kind that I use…

and then there’s also another one that I like from Earth Shift products here…

Yes, it’s the same type of silica that quartz crystals are made of: silicon dioxide!. 🙂

I take this internally & use it many smoothie & gem elixir recipes. 

In 1 tablespoon you get 420 milligrams of silica!  I like to take this mineral supplement daily, one tablespoon daily.

The reason I like taking this is because all your cell walls are made of silica and it’s been noted in scientific studies that people who have higher levels of silica actually stave off lots of different dis-eases. Check it out for yourself!

Silica directly helps with:

  • connective tissue
  • hair
  • skin
  • nails

***Now I want to hear from you please***

In the comments below can you please tell me: 

Should I do videos like this every once in a while?  A little more often?  How sparkly are my Current Favorites? Did I really go too far off track with stuff that was unrelated to crystals, listed too many, do you want to hear more about that kind of stuff?  Or should we just keep it to crystals only? 

Please let me know! Thank you!

Crystal Blessings,
