    Crystals + 2013 Eclipse Energies

    Hibiscus Moon energy work 5 Comments

    OK, time to do an updated eclipse post for 2013. I already let 1 lunar eclipse slip past us so time to get on it! And we can totally use crystals in tandem with these eclipse energies (I prefer to stay safe & just stick with the lunar energies on this as I’ll explain in a bit here).

    We still have 4 upcoming eclipses in 2013 to look  forward to. Those of you that have been following me for a while know that I love to ride those cosmic Mama Earth energies & I also like to layer various types of energies together of similar frequency…enter the crystals!
    So here’s the 2013 Upcoming Eclipse Tour Dates:

    2013 May 10: Annular Solar Eclipse – This type of eclipse happens when the Moon is a wee bit closer to the Sun leaving a bright ring of light around the Moon (the corona). Solar eclipses can only appear during a new moon & in the day time. This means that you are working with new moon energy (this is said to be great for BIG cleansings, purging, ending things & letting go). Good time to clean out closets & such. This sort of eclipse has less amplitude than a Total Solar Eclipse. If you feel good about that then work with it & give it a go. Click on the link for a NASA map of where you need to be to see this event. Crystals to Work with: herkimer diamond, sunstone, citrine, stellar beam calcite

    2013 May 25: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse – much like a Partial Lunar Eclipse but has some unobservable differences (points of contact) & not too striking to look at, but the slight energy boost is there none the less. I view any sort of Lunar eclipse as a really powerful Full Moon! High amplitude, no doubt. For me, the Full Moon is a time to be grateful for what the last lunar cycle has brought about & to take a look at my plans & evaluate any necessary changes for the next cycle. Lunar Eclipses are a good energy to bring about change. (Click above for NASA maps) Crystals to Work with: moonstone, fluorite, selenite

    2013 Oct 18: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse – same as above

    2013 Nov 03: Hybrid Solar Eclipse – this event is a cross between an Annual Solar Eclipse & a Total Solar Eclipse. This happens b/c the Moon’s shadow touches upon Earth’s surface at some points, but falls short others. Yeah, this is mega-powerful energy here! Lots of banishing energy. Again, I feel the energy is too loco for my liking so I just appreciate & notice.

    If you’re on the East Coast of the US, you may have a view of a partial solar eclipse early Sunday morning. Go here to find out how it will look in your area or if you’ll be able to view it & what time.

    Think of it…the Sun, the Moon & the Earth are in perfect alignment with each other. The energies are STACKED, Baby! (Click above for NASA map) Crystals to Work with: sunstone, citrine, pyrite, sulfur

    [caption id="attachment_2600" align="aligncenter" width="400"] Sunstone aka oligoclase. Photo by Ra’ike[/caption]

    And no worries if you can’t visibly view some or any of these eclipses…its not necessary for its energy to still be able to affect you. Which is great, b/c its very difficult to catch an eclipse, especially a Solar one! The effects of eclipse energy on us has even been scientifically tested. (Click on that only if you’re GEEKY!)

    But we don’t need all that scientific mumbo-jumbo, do we? When you’re in-tune w/ Mama Earth you can just FEEEEL it. If you’re not feeling it…that may be because you need to get out there, barefoot on the Earth & get grounded & connected.

    Just as I teach with crystals, any energy that is High Amplitude (meaning it carries a whopping lot of energy) can interfere with the dominant osciallary rate (average vibratory rate) of an object or being. So does an eclipse qualify as High Amp? I give that a big HELL YEAH!

    With me so far?

    Since I don’t feel confidant working with the super-HIGH magnitude energy of a Total Solar Eclipse (I don’t think I’ll ever be messing around with that) I pretty much leave that be & just honor & respect by watching from afar.

    I do, however, like to work with Lunar eclipse energy since those can make for some supremely special edition potions difficult to replicate!

    Here are just a few things I like to do/create for a Lunar Eclipse:

    • Concoct special Gem Elixir blends
    • Crystal Grids
    • Program a special crystal

    Are you planning on working with the celestial energies? We’d all love to hear what you’re up to so please comment below. 🙂

    Did you see this recent video I did where I answered some common moon-crystal related questions about charging crystals under the full moon?
    In it I cover:

    • Why I feel a monthly Moon “Cleanse” is not necessary
    • Can you put your crystals out when its cloudy?
    • Can you put your crystals out when there are freezing temps?
    • Will crystals still receive Moon-Benefits through a window?

    Watch the vid & find out! 🙂

    Charging Crystals in the Full Moon?

    Many Sparkly Moon Blessings to you,

    Today, I bring to you a Crystal Healer Reflection from one of our newest Certified Crystal Healers, Jill Bloomer. She is such a sweet & GORGEOUS soul. I hope you thoroughly enjoy reading this post as much as I did! Here’s Jill!!:
    Crystal Healer Reflection

    On March 19, 2011, late at night, I sat outside on my patio contemplating the question that plagues many people.

    “Who am I, what am I doing here?” 

    Although nothing was truly “wrong” in my life, I began to feel despondent and depressed as I pondered my purpose on earth.  Yes, I was a good mother, blessed with four incredible children.  Yes, I had a loving marriage and big-time career. Why did I feel like something was missing?

     Frustrated, I leaned my head back on my patio chair, and my eyes fixed upon the biggest, brightest full moon I had ever seen in my life. For reasons unknown at the time, my heart started to pound and tears began to stream down my cheeks.  I reached for my smart phone and googled “why is the moon so big”.   I found the answer; it was called a “super moon”.  The moon was closer to the earth due to its oval shaped orbit than it had been in 20 years.  It was a truly awe-inspiring sight.

    One google search about the moon lead to another, and before I knew it I was fully engrossed in reading about Moon Goddesses, Wicca, witchcraft, and a bevy of other topics that I was raised to believe were forbidden and taboo.  It was only a few days until I dedicated myself to a spiritual path centered on finding this mysterious Goddess whom I had never known before, but who intrigued me so deeply.

    The next few weeks for me were spent reading articles and watching videos about anything that I could find related to Goddess worship.  I eventually found my way to a you tube channel called phanie12 . In her videos, a faceless woman with a kind and cheerful voice taught me everything I wanted to know about how crystals and gemstones could heal, manifest, and inspire.  I bought my very first crystal (a small citrine point), and when I first held it in my hand, I knew I held something very powerful.

    I came to know phanie12 as Hibiscus Moon, and I began visiting her website and reading about her Certified Crystal Healer Course.  Oh what a pipe dream! I could never do anything like that! Or could I?

    After much prayer, manifesting, and self-convincing, I finally enrolled in Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy to become a Certified Crystal Healer.  As I am finishing the courses and the prescribed work, I almost cannot believe that my “pipe dream” is a reality.  The answer to the question “why am I here on this earth?” is very clear to me now.

    I am here to help others to be healed.

    However, this is not the end of my journey by any means.  In order to be a successful healer, I must continue to heal myself- physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I must continue on my path of learning, for this is not a journey with a final destination, but a never-ending path of self-development, discipline, and growth.  Finally, I am on my way!
