Why Your Crystals 🔮 May Not Be Working 🤔

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing 21 Comments

One thing I’d like to clarify before we dive into anything else is that we should not rely on crystals (ALL ON THEIR OWN) for a specific cure. People often come to me with a medical diagnosis they’ve received, and they want to know which crystal is good for healing/curing that particular medical issue. When it comes to a medical diagnosis, crystals are fantastic for supporting a sound holistic health plan overseen by a medical professional

Also, when I say “holistic,” to most people, that means taking into account all the different aspects that come into play with healing. Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually.  Not just your body but your mind and your spirit as well, so you’re not just addressing the physical symptoms. I believe when it comes to healing this is how everyone should approach the process and that includes medical professionals.



Crystals are PART of a sound holistic health plan
Crystals allow us to tap into the vibrational frequencies or healing frequencies that we might be seeking more efficiently. Not to say that you can’t accomplish this without crystals, it most certainly can be done. However, crystals are here to assist us as a tool, allowing us to do the required work using less energy. In the world of physics, the definition of a tool is something that allows you to do the work using less energy.

For example, If you have a lawnmower, that’s a tool that will enable you to cut the grass using a lot less energy than going out there with a pair of scissors and cutting each blade of grass individually. So yes, as part of sound holistic healing practice, crystals can be a huge help. However, it could also be that your approach to working with the crystal is what’s blocking your desired outcome.
The Science Supporting The Metaphysical 🔬
One thing I always strive to do here on this blog is connected metaphysics with the science that supports it. So allow me to dive into the double-slit experiment that took place over 100 years ago. This experiment showed us that light and matter display characteristics of being both waves and particles, but more importantly, it taught us the nature of quantum mechanics.

This experiment also brought to light what would be known as “The Observer Effect” or the “Hawthorne Effect.” In essence, we learned that whatever the observer believed would happen was naturally going to impact the outcome. Meaning there is actual evidence to support the idea that our consciousness or our beliefs influence how our reality is shaped.

If you feel your crystal isn’t working It could mean it’s the wrong time for you to be working with that particular stone. So I would encourage you to try working with different crystal pieces of the same type. If it’s an amethyst, you’re working with experiment with other amethysts types

The crystal itself may also need to be vibrationally recalibrated. We all need to be unplugged some of the time, and the same can often happen with your crystal. It requires a re-tuning, and the easiest way to do so is through sound acoustics. The vibrations psychically travel through the object, yourself, and the crystal lattice recalibrating the dominant oscillatory rate of the crystal.

Also, remember that it’s always possible for a specific crystal to never be a proper vibrational match for you. If find that’s the case consider regifting it back to the earth or even regifting it to someone else.
Three things you can do to get your crystal working again
#1 – Ease into working with the stone

I see people try and force a specific stone into their life all the time. They pick up something new and want to dive into it immediately. I would recommend taking a slower approach when it comes to incorporating this specific stone into your life.

  • Rather than wearing it all day as a piece of jewelry try meditating with the stone for 4-5 minutes instead.
  • In addition to meditation, you could also consider keeping it with you when you sleep. Try putting it in your pillowcase, so it’s safe, and it doesn’t roll off the bed and then if you’re sleeping with it then you’re with it for about half the day instead of an entire day.
  • Finally, try working with the stone every other day instead of every day.

#2 – Anoint the stone

Something else to consider before wearing the stone is anointing it. Most likely through a small ceremony or even a little prayer. This creates a vibrational bond between you and the crystal. Creating that bond allows you to make the stone yours. I would also recommend anointing your stone after you’ve already completed step one. Do this little ritual with a little bit of essential oil on the tip of your finger and just put it on the stone, and maybe say a little prayer or a little affirmation in how you would like to work with the crystal.

Perhaps you can take it into your sacred space. If you need ideas on creating a sacred space, I have a free eKit on creating a sacred space you can check out which includes a meditation mp3.

Start by taking a tiny little drop of essential oil and putting it on the crystal. If you prefer something like Florida Water or holy water that’s acceptable too. Before doing so, however, I would check the stone’s Mohs hardness. We want to make sure that the stone has a Mohs hardness of five or higher. Otherwise, water can slightly damage the crystal if you’re not careful. I like to be overly cautious in this area. Finally, rub the oil on the stone while stating a favorite prayer or an affirmation. You can also leave it in your sacred space for seven days or so. This process can help create a very strong bond between you and that crystal.

#3 – Retune your crystal

The third thing you can do is retune your crystal. Here we would use something like a crystal singing bowl or even a tuning fork. You can also place your stone in front of a speaker and turn the music up loud.  What this does is create sound acoustics with a high amplitude, and that high amplitude is going to trump the oscillatory frequency of the crystal. It will recalibrate it down to the crystal lattice, or down to the molecules.

I hope you try these three steps you can take to get your crystal working again! If nothing on this list works for you, it might be that your time with this particular stone is up. WHICH IS OK I PROMISE! If it truly is time to part with your crystal then consider gifting it to someone else or even regifting it back to Mama Earth.           

Let me know in the comments if you’ve used any of these steps to reconnect with your crystals! I’d also love to hear if you have a specific stone that doesn’t work for you? Or maybe a one that you feel has never worked for you?

How to Cleanse Crystals | Simple Technique

Hibiscus Moon cleansing, Crystals 39 Comments

Today, I want to talk about how to energetically cleanse your crystals.

Not, physically clean them… because I did that over here a long while ago. 

Now, I have a different take on that whole subject of cleansing your crystals.

**In fact, I have an older video/blog post about this but I decided it was high time to update it and give you my most up-to-date (& more condensed) info on this subject because so many people ask about this!**

So, let’s dive in!

How to Cleanse (Re-tune) Crystals
First of all, the whole idea of “cleansing” your crystals is one that I never resonated with.

When I first started learning about crystals, of course, I hit the books and a lot of people would talk about cleansing their crystals. And then especially when we took things online, I also remember seeing (way back in 2005 or something like that), a big movement towards everybody talking about crystals and cleansing.

Then YouTube came along and I recall seeing a lot of people talking about the topic again… and I was part of that crowd too, don’t get me wrong!

But it never really sat right with me because I was always wondering…
“If crystals can maintain their energetic stability so wellwhy do they need to be cleansed so often? Why are we using them as tools to help us if they are so vulnerable to energy themselves?”

Know what I mean?

In working with crystals more and more over the years, in researching and also working with our students; teaching and getting feedback from our alumni and even their clients, it became quite evident to me that the crystals did NOT need to be cleansed on an ongoing basis so much.

This all goes back to the very nature of crystal structure itself and a term that I call the dominant oscillary rate.
Vibration
Everything is vibration, baby.

Everything oscillates and has its own signature frequency.

We have a collection of various vibrational frequencies making up who we are as a physical body and as an energetic being as well. There’s a lot going on and as humans, we don’t have a lot of preciseness in how we’re built, especially if you look at our molecular makeup. Our vibrational frequencies are numerous and very random. We do have some liquid crystal going on but we’re not mostly made up of liquid crystal.

Whereas with an actual crystal…
(The whole definition of a crystal is that its molecules are built-in a very specific repeating geometric pattern; a precise lattice structure.)
there’s no randomness to a crystal.

There might be a glitch here and there but a crystal is made up of a precise repeating geometric pattern in the way that its molecules are arranged.

So because of that, it has a very stable vibration that it emits in an energetic bubble around itself. We call that bubble an energy torus.

At times, that oscillary rate or vibration can get knocked out of sync in a crystal by very specific high amplitude energetic events.  But it’s a rare event.Ours gets knocked out all the time very easily. It can

On the other hand,  our vibration gets knocked out all the time quite easily.

So, it has to be a very high amplitude with a lot of energy to knock the crystal out of its base vibrational frequency; some sort of very intense energy can do that. When that happens, the crystal will naturally realign itself back to its dominant oscillary rate, where it naturally wants to be, on its own, given some time.
Retuning
Now, if we want to facilitate that crystal getting back to its dominant oscillary rate more quickly, there’s something we can do:   I coined it retuning a number of years back b/c it does a better job explaining what’s actually happening. (You can liken this to “cleansing”.)

It’s basically like retuning an instrument, a guitar, a piano. I don’t call it “cleansing” because that has the connotation of the whole concept of doing it often, doing it on a frequent basis, like taking a bath and that’s not what I’m talking about here.

I get into tons more detail about this in my Certified Crystal Healing Course.  But just as an overview here, I’ll give you a really simple technique that you can easily do to retune your crystal when it’s necessary.

This DOES NOT need to be done all the time or if somebody simply touched your crystal, unless again, that person exposes your crystal to a really high amplitude; like high emotions; yelling, breaking things, manic behavior (could be negative or positive emotions): That sort of energy CAN knock that crystal out temporarily.

Once again, you can leave the crystal alone and it will gradually eventually go back to its “home-base” vibration on its own eventually. Perhaps after a few weeks or months.

Or you can facilitate this happening more quickly with my favorite and super-easy method…

Sound Acoustics
I like sound energy because it’s more practical and it’s much more effective from a scientific perspective.

Just use SOUND. Immerse your crystal(s) with loud sound – acoustic vibrations; a sound bath!

In my video, I’m using a tuning fork.

Sound effectively sends energy vibrations out into our environment that we can’t see, but we can hear and measure.

We’re constantly surrounded by vibrations of all different sorts that we’re not able to see or pick up with our other senses. We’re affected by them but we’re just not able to see them because they’re not visible light.

So those energy sound waves from the tuning fork went out into the environment, right? It affected me then it went through the crystal and agitated its vibration; jarred its dominant oscillary rate to snap back into alignment, back to its natural frequency.

This method is so flippin’ easy! You don’t:

  • have to do any kind of saltwater cleanse and worry about Mohs hardness or rusting, dissolving, etc.
  • need lug your whole crystal collection out into the moonlight; although I do really like that practice for the ceremonial effect and spiritual effect that it has on me. I really like it. But I don’t do it every single moon cycle.  I’m saying you don’t have to feel guilty if you skip it for six months. 
  • have to worry about your crystals fading under intense sunlight
  • need to pick and move your entire colossal collection, just bring the sound source to them! 

If you know your crystal needs it, sound is simply the easiest way.

By the way, you don’t have to use a tuning fork. It can be any loud sound/vibration. It can be music or any sound, but you want to turn it up LOUD so that the amplitude is HIGH. That means the energy is high.

You can also use something beautiful like a crystal singing bowl.

You can get the amplitude going really, really, high and you can actually FEEL the vibrations penetrating everything in the environment.

Now, people will often ask me:

  • What note should I use on the tuning fork?
  • What note should I use on the crystal bowl?

MY ANSWER: It doesn’t matter. 🙂
Because any sound is sound acoustic energy as long as its high amplitude… doesn’t matter what note or frequency it’s in.
You just want it to be high energy; i.e. LOUD, where you can feel it reverberating. It doesn’t have to be tearing down the house where you’d have your neighbors calling the police because your music is so loud 😉 but you want to just make sure that it’s penetrating the crystal lattice, jarring the vibrations/penetrating the crystal, and that will knock it back to its natural dominant oscillary rate.

Wondering how often to retune your crystals? I have an older pillar blog post over here all about that.

Check it out for yourself and give it a go.

I’d love to hear your take on this as well, so go ahead and post it in the comments below.  Have you used sound to retune your crystals? Or do you prefer another method?

Crystal Blessings,
