Get the Most out of the 🌑 Eclipse Season ☀️ With Crystals

eclipse season

Today we are talking about getting the most out of the eclipse season with crystals! During an eclipse, the sun, the moon and the earth are in perfect alignment. Now we don’t usually get an eclipse every time we have a full moon or new moon. During eclipse season, when we get the three celestial bodies, the sun, moon and earth, in perfect alignment their various types of cosmic energies become aligned or stacked. When that happens, they magnify and amplify each other.

In physics, we call this the principle of superposition. That’s when similar energies easily come into alignment and when they do that, they amplify each other.

A lot of people are sensitive to these types of energetic shifts and can feel them easily. Especially if you’re an empath, Reiki healer, or you do energy work of any kind. So let me ask you…are you feeling it ramping up? If not, you may start to as we get a little bit closer!

Now, eclipses usually happen in pairs, but this time it’s not going to happen that way. We had our first eclipse […]

New Crystals Fakes, Misrepresentations and Frauds to Watch Out For

crystal fakes

Well, I think we’re a bit overdue for another “fakes” blog post to add to my series.

There’s an entire series of blog posts I’ve written over the years as fakes have popped up more and more. If you want to read up on all the fakes that I’ve reported on, we’ve gathered them all up into my Free Crystal Fakes Reference Guide, which includes all the previous blog posts in the fakes series.  Good to have on hand when crystal shopping! 

Now, on my annual trips to the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show I get to view a lot of what’s hot on the market and also spot some of these fakes first-hand. I also like to attend some of the lectures they have at the Convention Center so I can stay up-to-the-minute and knowledgeable about what’s going on in the mineral world. Last year I audited a lecture on Fake Minerals. This year my favorite lecture was: Crystal Faces and Forms.

Heaven, I tell you!

Seriously. Crystal-topic academic lectures while hanging out at the biggest most glittery gem show in the world??! If […]

2 More Cool Crystal Properties to Prove that Crystal Energy Ain’t No Scam!

2 Cool Properties _ FI #1

A while ago I wrote a blog post answering the question:

“Is the power of crystals & quartz energy a scam?”

This is that post.

Well, my usual MO on questions like these is to simply throw some science at it. That usually gets the skeptics to sit up & listen. 😉

quartz properties

In that post, I dove deep into piezoelectricity; a scientific property of quartz crystals that explains 1 way they give off energy.

That blog post certainly was (surprisingly to me)…a big hit!

What I thought would be a topic that would sort of quietly disappear into internet wasteland (yeah… I needed to write it anyway simply b/c it brings me so much joy to share the sparkly musings in my head)…with me blissfully spouting off my science mumbo jumbo as I tend to do from time to time…ended up being a very popular post with it sort of getting viraly shared about…and had many of you in the comments asking for more info about the other scientific properties of quartz that I had mentioned.

Well you don’t need to ask […]

Top 4 Crystals to Work with Moon Energy

crystals moon energy

Let’s talk about crystals we can use to work with moon energy. Whether it be for the full moon, new moon or any phase of the moon.

Intention

I feel that when you’re working with different phases of the moon, it’s not so much about the specific crystals that you choose to work with, because there are several different ones, but more about your intention of working with that particular moon phase.

There are several crystals that have vibrational frequencies that align with the moon in general, no matter what phase the moon is in at that particular time. Which is great b/c it makes uncomplicated work of it.

Again, it doesn’t matter whether it’s full moon or new moon, what I feel is most important is that you be very clear on what your intentions are & that you align them with that particular phase of the moon.

Here’s a very general summary of those energies…

Full Moon Energy

  • It’s a time when you reap what you’ve sown.
  • It’s when you’re grateful for whatever lessons you’ve learned in last moon’s cycle, or for whatever intentions and seeds that […]
