Q&A: Healing & Get Well Mojo

Hibiscus Moon healing 9 Comments

Here’s a great question from 1 of our thoughtful & caring Crystalline Cohort students (seems they’re all like that!!) on how to provide crystal healing to someone who may not be familiar or open to it specifically for some “get well” mojo. I thought many could benefit from this Q & A.

So let’s share!

Q:

My landlady is pretty sick, and she has had some health issues lately. She’s going in for surgery on Friday, and I wanted to pass by tomorrow to give her a little “healing + quick recovery” mojo to keep with her while in the hospital. Like, a little sachet with some charged crystals. Any suggestions?

She’s terrified to go in on Friday but really isn’t into crystal healing or energy work. Just want to send her some light and some good vibes, so she knows she’s not alone going through this painful experience!

A:

How caring of you!

There are many different things you can put in the little mojo bag but if she doesn’t know much about crystals then I would just give her an easy general healing bag of green aventurine, clear quartz, jade & red jasper.This will be a sweet little gesture & should be able to ease her into it.

You don’t have to put all of them in there but a mix of them would be nice.  She may ask of you…as people often ask me when I do this sort of thing…“What do I do with them?” No complicated instructions or anything.  Just tell her to keep it close by or under her pillow & let the crystals give her the energy that she needs to heal. ♥

So how about you Chick Pea? Do you have any special things you like to do for a similar situation? Please let us know in the comments below. We’d love to hear!

Crystal Blessings to all the Crystal Hotties!!

 

Q&A: Chakra Stone Set

Hibiscus Moon chakras, Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work 8 Comments

Today’s post is about putting together a chakra stone set. You can put 1 together relatively inexpensively if you know what stones to go for.

Here’s a question that I recently received:

Q:

  • I’m putting together my chakra stone set & am curious if it’s best to use the same style/shape stone for the set? For example should they all be tumbled? Or can they be a mix of tumbled & points?
  • Also, when buying a pendulum, which stone is best? Should we use our intuition or is there one stone that is best for healing?
  •  
    A:
    For your chakra set, it really won’t matter. Get what you can get. Natural is always best but sometimes you just can’t find them in that particular stone. If you have an easy choice though, always go natural! That being said, here’s an example set I usually recommend to all my students:

    The stones pictured above are very easy to find & are inexpensice. I usually like to have a choice of 2 stones for each chakra on hand except for the crown here…no specific reason for that:

    • Root chakra (red): red jasper + hematite
    • Sacral chakra (orange but represented here by the brown bag): orange calcite & carnelian
    • Solar plexus chakra (yellow but represented here by the camel bag): citrine & tiger’s eye
    • Heart chakra (green): rose quartz & green aventurine
    • Throat chakra (blue): blue lace agate & sodalite
    • Third Eye chakra (indigo): amethyst & lepidolite
    • Crown chakra (white or light lilac but represented here by the black bag): clear quartz
    • I also have an amethyst pendulum pictured here for sensing energies & balancing each chakra (we teach how to do that in our course)

    As for the pendulum, you don’t need amethyst…get what’s calling to you most. Yep, that’s what will work best for you!
    And just in case you missed it, here’s my FREE Chakra Workshop:

    Now, get to it Crystal Hottie! Go balance some chakras. 😀

    The Crystal Healer Interviews: Karen Shaw

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Crystals 9 Comments

    Today, I bring to you another inspiring story to add GLITTER + SPARKLE to you day. This Crystal Healer interview is so filled with inspiration + BIG DREAMS that your motivation cup will overflow. That’s why I asked Crystalline Cohort, Karen Shaw to do this interview for us here today. She totally turned her life around & is living in her BLISS!

    You can just drink up her sparkling energy from her photo alone!

    Thank you Karen! Take it away:
    So, what brought you to the world of crystal healing?
    My journey to the world of crystal healing was an unexpected one. A few years ago, the pharmaceutical company I worked for downsized, and I lost my longtime office job. A full time working mother of four, my confidence (and my identity) took a battering. With life as I knew it changing, I grappled with who I was and where I was going.

    Then one day I passed my teenage son’s room and the eclectic collection of crystals on his dresser caught my eye. In the midst of various tumbles, there sat a small orange stone. Compelled to pick it up, I “borrowed” his crystal, which turned out to be orange calcite. I dubbed the stone “Little Rock” and carried it everywhere. Somehow, having Little Rock close lifted my spirits.

    Fascinated and somewhat baffled by my reaction, I simply had to learn more. A few books and several crystals later, I still had more questions than answers. I realized I’d fallen in love with crystals, but did they really work on physical, mental and spiritual levels? In my quest for answers, destiny sent me straight to Hibiscus Moon Academy where I learned the science behind the magic and discovered my life’s passion.

     

     
    What crystal has the biggest effect on you? 
    It depends on what day it is! I feel the pull of whichever stone being “calls” to me during a particular time-frame. I may feel compelled to work with amethyst one week, chrysanthemum stone another and then my empowering scepter quartz leaps off the shelf, demanding my attention.

    When I hear the call, I listen closely as there’s always a message waiting to be unveiled.

    At the moment, I’m working with a gorgeous white calcite sphere with rainbows. I meditate with her at night before slipping her under my pillow. She’s a gorgeous stone for dream facilitation and connecting with spirit.

     

    What do others in your life think about the path you are on? How do you navigate being a crystal healer and a mama on a daily basis?
    I am so blessed to have my family’s full support. My sister is a beautiful, spiritual light-worker who has encouraged and inspired me every step of the way. At the other end of the cheering squad is my husband, a PhD chemist. I enjoy a wonderful balance of “metaphysical meets science” between the two of them. As for my children, ages 22 through 16, they no longer bat an eye at Mom’s crystal grids, eclectic altars or her beloved Tibetan singing bowl, bought courtesy of their science-minded step dad. With so much teen-age angst-ridden emotion in the house on any given day, learning to be a crystal healer has definitely helped me dispel negative energy on many occasions.
    What is your go-to crystal for grounding?
    I’m extremely drawn to smoky quartz. I have several beautiful crystals, and they all offer a warm, earthy hug whenever I’m feeling “spacey” or nervous. Smoky quartz was one of my ultimate favorites even before I fully understood this crystal’s amazing properties of grounding and protection.
    What are your BIG DREAMS now that you are getting ready to graduate?  
    With my certification just around the corner, my ultimate dream is to start my own BIG SPARKLY sacred crystal biz!  My course work with Hibiscus Moon Academy taught me that it’s never too late to find your passion and reinvent your life no matter what your prior circumstances or background may be.
    What do you love most about working with crystals?

    I equate crystals with unconditional love.

    The stone beings are always ready and willing to work with us on many levels. They are entrusted into our care, Mother Earth’s gifts to the human race. When a connection is made, crystals allow us to tap into our inner selves, leading to a better understanding of the light that shines within all of us.

    What 3 books are you loving right now?  
    At the moment, I’m thoroughly enjoying “Crystal Healing, the Therapeutic Application of Crystals and Stones” by Katrina Raphaell, “The Book of Stones” by Robert Simmons & Naisha Ahsian and “Vibrational Medicine” by Richard Gerber, M.D.  I believe these three cover all the bases from practical application (Crystal Healing) to the science behind energy healing (Vibrational Medicine). An in-depth guide, The Book of Stones provides a treasure trove of crystal eye candy as well as a plethora of information.
    Do you have any advice for anyone who is considering this path?  
    My advice for anyone considering this path is a resounding,

    “The world needs you, so go for it!” 

    If you feel a calling to become an energy healer, follow your inner voice and trust in yourself.

    Life is full of chances to change direction; you just have to take the first step.  

    Karen’s Bio: I’m a mom and a grand-momma to be. A former project coordinator with a business degree, I married my wonderfully supportive British husband in 2009 and left the corporate world that same year. During my stay-at-home-mom days, my sister and I wrote a 1920’s themed novel, which is almost ready to be lovingly sent into the world. While pursuing novel writing and poetry, I stumbled upon my life-altering passion for crystals. I’m looking forward to receiving my crystal healing certification and creating the holistic business of my dreams.

    Thank you once again, Karen, for sharing that with us all.

    For proving that its not ever too  late to make that change & DO WHAT YOU LOVE!

    Blissful Crystal Blessings!
