So, you say you’re craving some mint chocolate chip ice cream or a whole freakin’ box of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies (ever sit down and eat an entire box of those? I remember doing that about twenty years ago… good times).

Well, I have a great alternative for you today that’s super-healthy and high vibe too!

The Amethyst Latte that Broke the Internet

Hibiscus Moon Gem Elixirs 16 Comments

So, I posted THIS on FB…

and Instagram recently

& we just about broke the Internet!

 

Everyone was shouting: RECIPE!

 

And I promised it was coming to the blog… so, finally here we are!

I had been playing around with creating my own version of the now famous Amethyst Latte from the Brooklyn Cafe; The End and came up with what I think is an even healthier, tastier more energetically-charged recipe that you can easily do in your own kitchen. 😀
Gem Elixir
First, you’ll need to make your all important amethyst gem elixir. Amethyst Gem Elixir is good for inviting in purification, protection, spiritual bliss & a deeper connection with your intuitive & higher self.

You can be very no-frills about it and simply plop a clean amethyst stone into a glass container of clean filtered water and let it sit in your refrigerator overnight (or for at least a few hours).

OR…

You can be very ceremonial about this and pull out all the stops:

  • use only glass in anything that touches it
  • maybe charge it up in the sun to give it extra pranic energy between the hours of peak sunlight in your area
  • surround it with quartz points to amplify it
  • apply intentional words and/or phrases to the outside of it a la Dr. Emoto… as I did here.

(If you really want to get nitty-gritty with this stuffs I teach all about it in my Certified Crystal Healer Course).

You’ll note I decided to further charge this latte up with “Ananda” energy, which is the Sanskrit word for “bliss”.
The Magical Recipe ~ Amethyst Latte
Ingredients you’ll need (all organic whenever possible):

  • 2 cup hibiscus (high in vit. C) or raspberry (antioxidant & high in ellagic acid) tea made with 1 cup Ananda Amethyst Gem Elixir and 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp maqui powder (antioxidant superfood made from the maqui berry)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (endless list of benefits)
  • 1 Tbsp maca powder (hormone balancer, energy boosting)
  • 1 Tbsp liquid crystal silica (yes… like drinking your quartz crystals)
  • 1 tsp locally harvested honey
  • 1/4 tsp red beet extract with spirulina mix (boosts cell voltage, antioxidant)
  • 3 drops of colloidal silver (divine feminine, healing, immune boosting)
  • sprinkle a few pinches of maqui berry powder and the red beet extract/spirulina mix (oh my! this stuffs is the most lusciously intense purpley- third eye indigo color you’ve EVER seen!) on top for the garnish. **More on the purple-sparkly bits below.**

This recipe is for one hefty sized amethyst latte. You can double the amounts given for 2 generous servings.
Put it all together
First, make your gem elixir tea then put all your ingredients together in a tall container b/c the next step will make quite a mess if your container is not tall.

Next, you want to put a nice froth on this latte. And this is how… you can use an easy, practical, inexpensive milk frother like mine. I love this thing!!

PLEASE NOTE: There are many more benefits to the list of ingredients than what I listed above. I just wanted to keep it concise & wasn’t sure how deep you’d want to go with that. Please do your own research if you’d like to know more. You’ll be amazed!
As amazing as it looks, this latte is one of the healthiest loving things you’ll do for your body.
And it tastes FABULOSO!!! Yep, tastes even better than it looks… if you can believe that!

Alright… here’s the thing on that purple rock candy stick. I KNEW if I plopped that into the pic it would really rock everyone’s world because: PURPLE ROCK FREAKING CANDY! And I was spot on b/c when I posted this on Instagram it went bonkers.

But… I didn’t eat that stuff. Admittedly, it was just for the photo.

HOWEVER! You can make a healthier version of crystalized rock candy using organic maple syrup and coloring it with a mix of macqui powder & beet/spirulina mix instead of chemical food coloring. I think that would be a great project idea for kids and if I was still teaching in the classroom, guess what I would be doing with my teenage science students tomorrow?!

That’s right: I challenge you to figure out how to grow some healthy crystal rock candy in the lab today! Of course, I’d throw in a healthy dose of critical thinking questions their way too.

OK, so I hope you try this recipe and PLEASE!!!… if you do, post it up on social media and use #HibiscusMoon so we can find it. I’d love to see & share your version of this sparkly creation. ♥

Purple Crystal Blessings!

My Life, My Spirit, My Career: How 10 Simple Morning Rituals Helped Me Succeed

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness, Everyday/Personal Stuffs, gratefullness 21 Comments

A little while ago I shared a bit about my daily morning ritual practice on my Facebook Page & Instagram & many asked for more details. My morning ritual isn’t at all complicated & is actually pretty quick but I keep it the same each morning so now its become an ingrained habit that I don’t even need to think about very much. Comes in quite handy when I have those mornings where I’m barely conscious!

It’s really pretty simple & reminds me to savor life’s little pleasures, to be grateful while also allowing me to live in the present moment.♥

You know… your mood in the morning affects your entire day…so doing this allows me to program & set the tone for the kind of day I’m going to have, fit in some of my spiritual/manifesting/law of attraction practices.
Puts me in the right mindset for a great day ahead.

And this all happens from my bed before I even put my feet on the ground.

I do this ritual every single day & try to stick to this routine as much as I possibly can no matter where I’ve slept; hotel, visiting family, etc. 

If I’m missing some of my tools, no problemo! I just skip that step and do what I’m able to do with what I’ve got.

My 10 Step Morning Ritual

  • NIGHT PREP: The night before I usually select a stone, depending on what kind of energy vibration I want to work with from a little wooden bowl that I keep in my kitchen to make my easy gem elixir water. Since I tend to be pretty lazy, I keep a selection of crystals & essential oils within easy reach on my kitchen counter for everyday practical purposes like this.
  • I wake up and first thing I do is drink water b/c I’m parched. I keep rose quartz (usually) gem elixir water by my bedside from the night before b/c I just like to drink a lot of water. I keep it very simple: just plop a rose quartz tumblie into my water-glass…
  • Totally unrealted but…first thing I usually see when I open my eyes besides my hubbie is Ms. Topaz usually in this very position…I can barely stand such cuteness! ♥

    3. Next I’ll do some quick neck stretches b/c I’ve learned that if I don’t do these everyday I’ll end up with more “pulled neck muscle” pains than I’d like to deal with from sleeping wrong or something like that. I do the first 4 on this page. Now that I do these 30 second neck stretches every morning, the “neck-pulls” only seems to happen about 1/year. Still not great but better than every 3 months or so! 

    Next, I’ll pick up one of 2 crystals I typically have by my bedside: a clear quartz point or my rose quartz chunk-buddy and sit up cross-legged on the bed with a straight spine, eyes closed.  (***Topaz usually climbs into my lap at this point and purrrrrrrrrs***) I hold the crystal in 1 or both palms comfortably. With crystal in hand I’ll launch into several Energetic Hygiene Exercises:

    4. Organizing my energy: I’ve heard several metaphysical teachers teach this technique with some slight differences. Here’s how I do it. As I take a DEEEEEP inhale I’ll say to myself: “I call back all my energy to me.” (while visualizing any lost bits of scattered energy floating back to me & thunking into place where they belong…like a magnet attracting iron filings). Then with a full exhale, expelling all the air out of my lungs I say to myself, “And I release any energy that is not my own.” And I visualize anything that I’ve picked up in my energy field being released. And finally I say “I am now whole.” And I visualize my body’s aura cleansed & glowing. 🙂

    5. Now it’s time for my Energetic Shower. I visualize & sense the crystal in my hand beaming energy up to me (this energy is like sparkling glowing rays of light with rainbow twinkles in it…you can visualize it any way you like but this is what I see) + flowing through my body, releasing out the top of my head at my crown chakra & then gently flowing back down around me like a fountain…then flowing back up under and through my root chakra in a continuous loop. I actually visualize it around me like a twinkling flowing egg-shape of light flowing out & around & around. I do that for about 30 seconds. Longer if I really feel I need it. Because sometimes you just do.

    6. While still seated & holding my crystal now I send energy to whatever crystal grids I have set up at the time. I usually have a couple going in another room of the house so I simply visualize it and beam energy to it. (I usually visualize this beam as neon red energy….like a softly glowing laser beam. I’ve tried changing the color in my mind’s eye but it’s always red & I cannot change it. I’m curious what you see if you try this). It’s very quick. Takes about 5 seconds. It’s just a little crystal grid TLC.

    7. Next, in my mind, I’ll go through my list of things to be grateful for. There are many but I’ll usually think of 3. If it’s a day where I can’t think of much…you know those days, I’ll think of how I’m grateful for the bed I’m sleeping in, the air I’m breathing & the things or beings that surround me. You can always think of something, Jelly Bean. 😉

    8. Next I’ll think about what I’m currently working on manifesting in my life. I usually have a larger goal or two that I’m working on bringing into my reality, something that I’m deeply committed to; big life-changing goals & ambitions. I’m a Capricorn, don’t you know? 😉 So I’ll spend 30 seconds visualizing in detail my manifestation in full bloom, as if it’s already materialized. BOOOOM!

    9. Then I do my five-minute journal entries.

    Now I’m not one for free-form journaling…at all. I LOVE this journal b/c it’s very to the point, tells you exactly what to write and let’s you get it done quickly. It also gives you some inspiration for the day in the form of a motivational quote or a little challenge.

    You complete it each morning (gets me off on the right foot for the day, sets my goals in sight and even gives me another assist with my manifesting) as well as each night (so I can do a quick re-cap & reminds me again to be grateful)….so nourishing to the spirit.

    How do I remember to do it every morning & night?

    I keep it right near my bed with a pen on top of it…always ready to go. That’s the key to remembering to use it & do it…seeing it right there when you wake up.

    10. Lastly, I’ll do 1 oracle card pull for the day. I usually switch out between 2 different decks that I keep by my bed side:  Doreen Virtue’s Magical Mermaids and Dolphin Oracle Cards and her Angel Therapy Oracle Cards. I usually have a crystal sitting on top of the deck to lend its energy & then I’ll just choose one card sight unseen to receive a positive message, theme or direction for the day.

    And that’s it.

    Seems like a lot of steps when I write it out like this, but really I have this all memorized now and it all takes me between 5-7 min. Tops.

    I’ve been following this routine for over five years now & I will NEVER go without this morning ritual.
    I’ve accomplished way too much and have seen too many positive results (is that even possible?!) by sticking to it. These morning practices seem to be my secret weapon to getting through challenging days. They’re what give me the self-assuredness, grace & strength to cope in the face of challenges & they’re what I give credit to when I have those amazing days.

    Quick, practical, sparkly and totally doable. Believe me!

    Do you use any of these tools to get your day started in the right direction? To connect with your energy for the day & get it flowing in a positive way?   What’s your morning crystal ritual?   Or if you give my ritual a try, please tell me how it went or how you like it in the comments below! ♥
