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.

Crystal Blessings,

Why is there so much conflicting Crystal Info out there?

Hibiscus Moon book, Crystals 15 Comments

I am constantly being asked:

Why do you say 1 thing about a crystal while a book or another teacher may say something completely different?

Even the books sometimes conflict in the info they’re giving out.

The fact is that, YES…many crystal books tell us totally different things about the properties of crystals.

So how the heck do we know which ones to go by?
Sifting & Filtering
Chick Pea, please be prepared to sift through tons of random or conflicting info (or even completely bunk internet info with no credibility).

Remember to always consider your source!…the Internet is like the Wild West and ANYONE can say ANYTHING they want without any policing. It’s up to you to not just swallow everything thrown at you hook, line & sinker just b/c someone said it.
You need to do your own research, your own due diligence & then run it through your own intuitive filter.
Does this info resonate for you? Yeah, even the shizzle I’m teaching you…do the same. I don’t care WHO it is that you’re getting the info from.

Over the years, I have spent quite a bit of time & energy doing this for myself. I had to learn from trial & error (over many years) what was bunk info or just wasn’t going to work for me.

And bear in mind, that was eons ago when there was a lot less info out there than there is now. 😉

Crystal info was harder to come by on the Internet. I’m talkin’ about the days of AOL and then MySpace….heeee…remember that?

Also, be prepared to spend lots of time experimenting & researching on your own. You’ve got to be prepared to invest the resources to do this: time, energy & possibly funds too.

I did it.

Still do it…but that’s what I do.

And I’m happy to do it. Over the Moon actually!

I’m not going to sit here & tell you that this part is easy. It’s not.

It’s difficult for someone to:

  • sift through the crystal myths & facts 
  • then figure out what resonates for you; what rings true for your inner knowing
  • & then decide who to rely on for your sparkly info so you can move forward & apply it.

Bad news is; no one can do that part for you, Crystal Hottie. You have to do it for yourself. 
Short Cuts?
Good News!  Once you’ve invested the time in doing that, then you can rely on your chosen source for your info & there are some short cuts to be had (b/c your carefully chosen reliable source has already done some of the leg work for you). Then you can move along a bit faster with your crystal education…if you’d like to.

Please be prepared that you may possibly waste time on crystal healing teachings & methods that may or may not work for you. No way to know until you try them out for yourself.

It’s not to say that this information is incorrect or full on BS. That’s not what I’m saying at all.

You just need to proceed cautiously to learn what is correct for YOU.

I’ve found most of the free internet info is based on regurgitated book info. Not all…but most. And then it sort of becomes like a game of telephone; where by the time the message goes through a few reiterations it’s so damn distorted it’s nothing like the original message that was conveyed. Sheeesh!

As for crystal books, most of the book-info out there is based on either general properties that have been passed down from ancient info (that applies to MOST of the population) OR it was channeled by the author or received in a meditation or even by doing their own personal work with the crystal, thereby making that info personal to them.
Can you now see why I feel it’s so important to go with your own personal intuition for your own personal crystal use?
My Crystal Book Reco’s
BTW…I’ve read just about every crystal book out there!

I’ve taken the time, energy & money to curate your must-have list of the best most effective Creme de la creme books & resources with accurate scientific info.

PLEASE NOTE: Yes, there may be some VERY POPULAR crystal books that seem quite obviously absent from my list & there’s a very good reason for that. They simply didn’t meet my criteria. Either there was conflicting confusing information, inaccurate scientific data or it simply didn’t resonate with my inner knowing.
So please don’t ask me why I didn’t include so & so’s super popular book. Thanks! 😉
You don’t need to agree with my list, but I want to put this out there again b/c so many often ask for my recommendations. This is an older blog/video…my recommendations have not changed (like the highly evolved shark of the ocean, perfect in its design so no need to change).

Yes, I’m really confident recommending that list to you. 🙂

Have you read any of my book recommendations? Do you agree or disagree? Tell me in the comments below.

Crystal Blessings & Happy Researching!


P.S. If what & the way I teach resonates with you, maybe you’d like to join me in my Certified Crystal Healer Course. If that sounds like something you may be interested in you can get on my Wait List here so you’ll get first notice of the next time I open the course.
