Living in Alignment with Your Life’s Purpose

Hi Crystal Hottie!

I’ve got another “Crystal Healer Interview” today! Yes, more fresh, new & inspiring crystal perspectives from others that are living & breathing this crystal path.

And just in case you’re not familiar with what exactly is goin’ down…these Crystal Healer Interviews allow me to introduce you to crystal healing from another perspective (other than my own). So we’ve got a few Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers & Advanced Crystal Masters who are so generously sharing their stories with us. 

Well, I’m excited to let you meet super-cute, ambitious & talented HMCA Advanced Crystal Master, Ryelle Eterna of

Today’s message is about living in alignment with your life’s purpose.

Ryelle shares with us some amazing ideas she’d like to realize in the future: think “uber-lux-crystal-spa-experience”! Plus, a warning about working with moldavite.

And Here’s Ryelle …

What crystal has had the biggest effect on you?
Moldavite has had the biggest effect on me lately.

A few years ago, I purchased a raw piece…didn’t affect me at all. Then earlier this year, I felt called to work with moldavite again. I purchased and started wearing a faceted moldavite and diamond pendant and the combination of these two high vibration crystals really worked on activating my energies and clearing out my throat chakra issues. WARNING: I would limit wearing the pendant for only a short period of time because keeping it on too long would result in my throat getting really sore and raspy; almost to the point of losing my voice! [{Insert from me, Hibiscus} I also warn of working with moldavite too much in this blog post].
Since working with that combination, so many synchronicities of new-found knowledge, meeting like-minded people and connecting with guides started to occur!

What is your most favorite crystal in the whole wide world and why?

[caption id="attachment_17860" align="aligncenter" width="600"] By Parent Géry (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons[/caption]I first learned about it in the Book of Stones when I was taking the my Hibiscus Moon courses. I consider this crystal my favorite because of tugtupite’s properties of tenebrescence and fluorescence, and the metaphysical stories centered around it being a mineral aphrodisiac!

I fell in love with this crystal without even being able to touch it in real life. I even wrote about it in my blog a while ago to plant the seed of hoping to own this crystal one day.

For a while I searched for the perfect tugtupite piece, but I couldn’t find just the right one.

Then one day while visiting a gem show, I found the perfect sized pendant and it was love at first sight!

I even grabbed a few extras to put in my shop in case others were interested in experiencing this crystal’s energies. ♥

After working with tugtupite for a bit now, I also consider it my current fav because of my attraction towards crystals from Greenland (like Nuummite). Also, since this crystal “lights” up with sunlight and UV light, I feel like it’s energetically working on different dimensions and auric layers that are not seen with the human eye. I think of it as my multi-dimensional spectrum crystal!
What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this crystal-path?
The expansion of conscious awareness in how I live my life and how I interpret my current reality.

Introducing crystals into your life can bring on a paradigm shift where you start to live more in alignment with your spiritual purpose and the veil of 3D life starts to dissipate. I believe a greater understanding of your purpose and your life experiences start to unravel once you entrain your body and subtle body with the positive energies of vibrational tools…like crystals.

{Here’s a video of Ryelle on a rock-hounding adventure!}:

What are your BIG DREAMS now that you’re an ACM (Advanced Crystal Master)?
My biggest dream would be to create an ultimate crystal healing spa that involves all things crystal and includes color, sound and light therapies…that uses crystal charged, healthier water alternatives instead of harmful chlorine and fluoridated water. It would be a dream to have a spa like this aligned with a positive energy ley-line that has an ocean view amidst nature with beautiful weather!

I would also love to one day perform healing retreats in beautiful tropical locations. It would be a dream to allow people to heal, relax and rejuvenate during their vacation time. I envision a retreat with crystal healing sessions, nature hikes, organic vegan menus for detoxing, yoga, sun and star-gazing, meditation, dance, water activities  and body/massage treatments!

Our society is so programmed to work so much, that we are so disconnected with our inner selves and don’t have enough time to nurture ourselves. Creating a healing retreat where people can raise their vibration, consciousness levels and heal at the same time would be a dream come true!
What do you love most about working with crystals?
What I love most about working with crystals is when you work with them for a while and then start to feel their vibrational effects.
The energy crystals exude can bring such profound experiences!
I feel everyone should experience the feelings that crystals can bring. For some it takes time, and for others, the effects are instant.

Another reason I love working with crystals is the feeling you get when you find the right crystal by using your intuition and connecting with it. It’s like finding a long-lost soul mate or treasure!
Do you have any advice for anyone who is considering this path?
Believe in yourself and follow your intuition.

Don’t feel pressured to have to purchase every type of crystal on the market. I was overwhelmed at the amount of crystals out there at the beginning of my practice and would sometimes fall into the hype of what everyone else was trying and using. Different crystals have different vibrations, just like how people are different and have their unique energies and personalities. What may work for one, may not work for another.

I believe you should tune into your needs and observe your energetic reactions, your intuitive gut feelings and dream messages, to see what crystal calls out to you and what you are strongly attracted to. I believe those crystals will be most beneficial to your healing, conscious awakening and energetic make-up. Then once you become more sensitive and intuitive to subtle energies, apply these practices to your clients’ healing.

Navigating Challenges & Finding Joy

Hibiscus Moon amethyst, Crystal Healing, interview 5 Comments

Hey Crystal Hottie!

Since so many of you expressed to me how much you enjoyed reading my last “Crystal Healer Interview” & I am really also loving this injection of fresh, new & inspiring crystal perspectives let’s do it again!

So in case, you’re not quite sure what’s going on here…I have a few lovely Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers who’ve decided to step out here on my blog & let you into their gorgeous glitter-filled worlds.

I’m so happy to introduce you to HMCA Certified Crystal Healer Roberta Haley, CCH of Body Spirit and Stone.

Today’s message is about finding joy & happiness in your life’s purpose.

Mother of 2, Crystal Healer and Reiki Practitioner, Roberta  so graciously shares  with us her start with Crystals and coming full circle.

Ready? Here’s Roberta …

What brought you to the world of crystal healing?
I wish that I could say that I am a science nerd, but I’m not!  Which actually surprises me because my mother was a science teacher…ironic!

However, I always remember loving to go visit the Museum of Natural History when I was a kid and I could spend the whole time in the Hall of Gems and Minerals.

We had a small set of stones at home that I would play with. I knew they were special in some way but I didn’t know why. I used to talk to them!

It’s truly amazing being a kid because you are so open to things that you don’t realize are spiritual in nature when you’re that little.

I didn’t re-connect with crystals until I started studying Angel Oracle card readings with Doreen Virtue, and came upon a book she wrote on crystals:

That’s when I researched crystal healing and came upon the Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Course.
What energy work or spirituality books are you loving right now?
When I start a new spirituality book I usually go for a marathon read of a couple of books from the same author.

Right now I’ve been reading some books by Gail Thackray.  She is a medium and spiritual teacher who routinely takes people on pilgrimages to Brazil to visit John of God (a renowned spiritual healer who healed Dr. Wayne Dyer of cancer through a distance healing). I just finished up with The Gift where she talks about her visit to a psychic surgeon in the Philippines.

I had heard about psychic surgery, but I had no idea as to how it is actually performed until I read this book. I’ve gone to her workshops and brought home some small John of God crystals as well as a clear quartz crystal pendulum. The energy from these crystals is amazing!
Do any ridicule you for being interested in crystal healing? If so, how do you handle that?
So far, everyone that I have spoken to about crystal healing has been more curious than anything. It seriously opens up another door that they never knew existed.

Ridiculed? No…Skepticism? Yes.

It’s the kind of thing that they truly have to experience first hand to truly GET IT and make them a believer. One of my friends that was a volunteer for my CCH certification was one of the skeptics!

She since happily wrote a testimonial for me on my website saying how she is now a believer!
What crystal has had the biggest effect on you?
It’s a toss-up between amethyst and selenite.

Amethyst is my birth stone and I’ve just always had that connection to it. It’s my go to crystal for healing and protection, and it has a very calming energy for me. I have an amethyst lamp on my bedside table. It has a little red bulb that lights it up…so cool!

Selenite, I love because it has that angelic connection to it as well as being a stone of protection. I sweep my aura with a big wand that I have…and I like to use smaller ones to frame pictures of family members, such as my sister who has been battling cancer for the last year.
What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this path?
It’s kind of like my life has come full circle in a way.

I mentioned how I admired and played with crystals as a kid, but there was a huge lapse of time that passed before I re-connected with them again.

Even though I had a very positive experience in my adult life pursuing other career paths,

I can honestly say that I finally feel like I’ve found IT; the path that brings me joy and a sense of purpose.

I’ve also always been empathic and intuitive, having that ‘knowing’, being an avid listener to people’s problems, and wanting to help them release blocks that are holding them back in life.
What is your go-to crystal for grounding?

I’ve always loved garnet and I frequent a garnet mine in the Adirondack mountains in upstate NY. I have a nice little multitude of garnet chips as well as a nice raw chunk that is my go-to root chakra stone.
Any challenges/opportunities on this path?
My crystal healing/Reiki business is a labor of love! (Hibiscus here: keep in mind, Roberta is a single mom to 2 teenage boys!) Since I’m still in that transition phase, it’s challenging to find the balance between working full-time, taking care of my kids, on top of all the other motherly duties, to grow my crystal business. However, I know that this is my calling and where my happiness lies.


Roberta’s Bio: Roberta is a single mother of two teenage boys and has her own crystal healing/Reiki business.  She recently launched her website:

Drawing Inspiration from your Crystal Healing Practice

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, energy work, grounding, health 9 Comments

Hi Crystal Hottie!

I have a special treat for you today! Remember when we used to do those Crystal Healer Interviews here on my blog? I very rarely accept guest posts, but from time to time I like to bust out of that model & invite some inspiring Crystal Workers into my space.

I know many of you soooo enjoyed hearing from others who are also passionate about using crystal therapy everyday. It fuels us to keep doing more of what we’re doing, right? And then go out & share it with the world. 🙂

Well, the Crystal Healer Interviews are back! I have a few lovely Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers who’ve decided to step out here on my blog & let you into their gorgeous glitter-filled worlds.

I’m so happy to introduce you to Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Master Angie Yingst of I am so blessed to work with Angie as she is also part of our Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy Faculty as one of our beloved Crystal Coaches.

It’s a true honor to share her here with you.

Angie shares with us how she continues to draws inspiration from her crystal healing practice among many other motivational tid-bits.

Ready? Here’s Angie’s interview…

What brought you to the world of Crystal Healing?
My sister and I would lay stones on the chakras in a completely intuitive way during Reiki sessions with each other.

Then Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy started showing up everywhere I went on the internet, plus I subscribed to the newsletter. Even in day-to-day life, people would randomly say things like, “I’m drinking hibiscus tea under the full moon.” I realized I needed to take the path unfurling in front of me.
What is your most favorite crystal in the world and why?
That is like asking which is my favorite child! I love the dark grounding stones, particularly love garnet and black tourmaline.

[caption id="attachment_17483" align="aligncenter" width="600"] a large almandine garnet[/caption]

I think grounding is the key to all spiritual work from psychic work and meditation to dealing with bad drivers and temper tantrums.
What is something new that you’ve learned about crystals that you didn’t know before you took the course?

The science behind why crystals work remains the most important aspect of taking the coursework.

And not just science in one class, but throughout the coursework in the Certified Crystal Healer coursework, and the Advanced Crystal Master coursework. We are given examples, studies, links, books, more articles, and it just helps me volumes in my day-to-day client work. I am incredibly passionate about that part of crystal healing. Working as a Crystal Coach for HMCA students helps me stay in that mindset of the science behind what we do.
What do others in your life think about the path you’re on?
My husband works in the medical field, and could not be more supportive.

I believe medicine is moving toward a more integrated approach rather than split into two factions. Allopathic medicine and complementary medicine can work hand-in-hand for one amazing path of healing.
What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this path?
Realizing that I am not special nor am I capable of “healing” anyone.

My job is to raise someone’s vibration so they can do their work more easily or begin that process of energetic alignment with their intention.

I pray before every session that the person on my table receives the healing for their Highest Good. Then I do what I was trained to do as an Advanced Crystal Master and a Reiki Master/Teacher. I am simply a channel for healing energy.

I place stones quietly, perform Reiki without making it about me, practice meditation so that my mind can be a blank slate when I’m entering the auric field of my client, and introduce crystals in a way that empowers my clients and students. These are all part of that larger humility we need to accept when working as healers.
How do you navigate being a crystal healer and a mama/teacher, etc. on a daily basis?
I blend them together quite naturally–

  • mother
  • writer
  • artist
  • crystal healer

In meditation the other night, I just kept hearing: “You are the Mother” and I saw myself holding my babies, then working on the client in session, nurturing their soul into their next spiritual incarnation. Then painting, and birthing art from conception to finished piece.
What is the primary way you utilize crystals in your practice?
I lay stones on the body. I also teach crystal workshops each month on a topic of interest–this month is Intuition, next month is Empowerment–and my co-teacher Kate and I talk about ways to use crystals around this topic. They are really incredibly powerful classes.

We also teach day-long workshops on crystals. In those classes, we make gem water, create grids, lay stones on the body, meditate with crystals, and discuss crystal healing.

I also do distant crystal healing sessions.

From where do you draw inspiration in your crystal practice?

I am constantly studying, learning from my colleagues in groups online, Facebook, and through crystal healers I admire, like Hibiscus Moon and Naisha Ahsian…and researching.

I have grown in my practice, and find that information comes to me in session that I integrate and learn more about on my downtime. I also take classes that interest me, knowing that I can incorporate it into my practice, if I resonate with it. I do not limit myself to one modality, and see my gift as being able to take these disparate ideas and bring them together for my clients.

What 3 energy-work or spirituality books are you loving right now?
I am reading Shamanic Reiki by Llyn Roberts, which is so powerful and reads so true to me.

I’m rereading the Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life by Drunvalo Melchizidek.

And right now, I keep revisiting the book Crystalline Illumination: The Way of the Five Bodies by Katrina Raphaell. I have been incorporating her techniques and ideas into my sessions and my clients move mountains after the vibration we raise.

Do you have any advice for anyone who is considering this path?
Know yourself and do your own spiritual work. That is the first thing I can recommend.

Go see healers, psychics, shamans, vibrational healers, energy workers, and pay attention to what works for you and what isn’t working. Ask questions. Find mentors and teachers, and take classes. Follow the path that unfurls in front of you without pushing. I always wanted to be a medium, but it is not my gift. I would have been miserable doing that anyway.

Be the healer whom you would want to see.

Isn’t Angie amazing? Now you know why I had to have her on the Sparkle Team to help mentor our Crystalline Cohort students. She’s walking cosmic-inspiration in such a well-grounded package. There are absolute golden nuggets of wisdom in this interview. I hope you caught them all.
