Sacred Geometry | The Sacred Language of Crystals

Hibiscus Moon science 11 Comments

The study of the structure of many things has its basis in geometry: space, crystals, visualizing sound and vibration to name a few.

Geometry connects it all.

Just so you know… I’m not talking ’bout your boring ole’ high school geometry here, but SACRED GEOMETRY. Big difference.  

Let’s go deep. Shall we? 

Sacred Geometry; the ancient SCIENCE is not only the base-language of crystals, but it’s the key to understanding how our universe is designed and how it communicates.

In my work and research, I’ve found that using sacred geometric shapes as the foundation for your crystal-work is a central and necessary component.

I feel this is most likely due to the fundamental relationship between crystals and sacred geometry. Think of it this way; crystals are the 3D physical expression in matter of their inherent sacred geometric energy patterns.
CRYSTAL GRID TIP: Using symmetrical sacred geometry in a crystal grid foundation is the BEST way I’ve found to clearly communicate your intention to source energy and to get the most out of doing manifestation work with your crystals.

I’ve found that using sacred geometry alongside our crystals allows us to not only fine-tune but also amp up our source energy communication loop

To clarify what I mean, here’s a great analogy for this; let’s say you start with a really slow dial-up internet connection. (Want to feel anticipation? Try loading today’s websites or a video over dial-up!) So, you’ve got this “dial-up internet connection” to source energy. Ok, that’s great. But then you add crystals.  And then you throw some sacred geo to the mix. Now you notice that your connection just got a boost and suddenly it becomes “high-speed” bandwidth; super-enhanced, efficient, supremely fast internet!

That’s what crystals can do for us.

Over time, you’ll most likely also notice:

  • your intuition getting stronger
  • more synchronicities happening
  • your understanding and inner knowing about certain things becoming more clear and unwavering
  • you may even start noticing in general, things changing for the better in your life

I feel this happens because crystals give us the ability to fine-tune that communication bandwidth with source energy, allowing for more efficient comprehension and clarity.
Keep this in mind when you’re looking to improve the work you’re doing with your intention-setting and manifestations.

Intentionally bringing sacred geometry and crystals together gives you a considerable bandwidth boost! That’s why I find crystal grids to be quite effective. If you’d like to dig deeper into that subject, I wrote all about it in my book, Crystal Grids: How and Why They Work.

SIDENOTE: I see many working with asymmetrical crystal grids, and I’ve done it too. For certain purposes, they may be more practical. However, I’ve found that the MOST effective grids happen to be the symmetrical ones; so if you cut it up like a pizza, all slices would be the same. But, the best way to know if this is the same for you is to try it out for yourself.

Now, let me be crystal-clear here (yes, pun always intended); crystals are not the ONLY way to get that sacred “internet boost”. There are plenty of ways to achieve that same goal through countless other methods. Just a few examples would be:

  • all the various types of yoga
  • myriad meditation styles
  • cleaning up your diet
  • moving and exercising your body
  • breathing techniques

I could go on and on.

It’s important that you realize that crystals are purely tools and supports that allow us to do the work of communicating with source energy more efficiently. (Some call this “raising our vibration”.)

Simply put, crystals are efficient energy-flow influencers.

You may choose several different similarly aligned methods done at the same time, including crystal work, to achieve your sacred internet-boost. I refer to this as “layering on the vibrational frequencies” in order to amplify the crystal effect. Hey! Why not use all the tools at your disposal to make your connection with source energy more effective?

Platonic Solids, Atomic Structures and Crystals
So, the stunning crystal forms we’re all attracted to are no accident.

These fascinating visible forms mirror the symmetries of the structure of the very atoms forming the crystal.

When we look closely at the Periodic Table of Elements (hello, chemistry class!) and the formation of the atoms themselves, we see the Platonic solids (the basis of sacred geo) at work. In fact, the newest science is now showing us that atoms are not teeny tiny little solid particles but instead are actually super-small packets of energy that appear as various Platonic Solids (I know!!) comprised of teeny-tiny sub-atomic energy packets contained by and whizzing around within those Platonic Solids shapes.

Going further, when you start to put atoms together to make molecules of various compounds, the molecular structure is actually based on the cube (the most basic of the five Platonic solid shapes) and then evolves into other more complex Platonic solids from there (because each Platonic solid can be derived from the cube). Crazy-town, right? I love this shizzle to the core!

Bear in mind that crystals themselves grow in a super-saturated liquid crystal slurry (fluid). Here’s a classic video where I demo’d that topic for you (yes, my Breaking Bad obsession was full-force at the time):

Now, crystal growth-environment fluids are highly sensitive and receptive to ANY vibrations that are passing through them, which in turn, will influence how the crystal’s molecules organize and will finally solidify. This vibrational influence can be expressed either in the crystal’s molecular structure (that requires a specialized microscope to actually see) or can be clearly visible to the naked eye in the final shape of the larger crystal formation. Depending on the mineral, some don’t ever get to grow into a visible crystal shape with large defined individual crystals, but all minerals have an ordered crystalline structure to their molecules at the micro-level. This is what qualifies them as a crystal.

Through vibration and sacred geometry, source energy has encoded ordered info into the minerals.

All this talk of vibrational frequencies and sacred geometry leads me to the subject of “cymatics”. Here’s how Wikipedia defines Cymatics:

“The term was coined by Hans Jenny (1904-1972)… Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste or liquid. Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency.”

Back in my days as a physics teacher, my students and I loved doing lab demo’s involving cymatics and frequency such as this one:

As the study of cymatics has shown us, the vibrations visually express themselves naturally as sacred geometry (as crystals do) and that “frozen music” (or encoded structural info) is programmed within our crystals as they form… as it’s most likely programmed within everything, including us as we form. (Think about the implications of that for a sec!)

Through cymatics, we’ve explored how geometric patterning affects EVERYTHING on a vibrational level. I feel that the unique property that minerals have to crystallize the sacred geometric coding they receive through the energetic vibrations allows them to have clear communication between us and the entire universe. And when we consciously work with crystals, they quite effectively CLARIFY that convo between us and source energy.

Through working more closely and intentionally with our crystals, I also feel we start to learn and understand more about these subjects. We start to understand on a deeper level that crystals are really a conduit to the nature of reality itself. It also awakens a thirst to want to explore and learn more.

Immersing ourselves in this work allows us to get into resonance with the harmonic frequencies of source energy, allowing us to resonate more efficiently, so we can communicate more efficiently. Next thing you know, you’re a Manifesting Machine! It allows you to become more coherent with this energy.
Learning about, understanding and working closely with these energetic patterns helps us to realize our full potential. I’ve seen it with myself and have witnessed it over and over again with others doing the same.
Signs you’re in harmony with source energy:

  • you can more easily intuit things, tapping into your intuition effortlessly
  • you can more easily manifest your desires
  • easily move out of stress and anxiety
  • stay in a meditative or relaxed state

When the energies resonate, the effectiveness of the feedback loop is amplified and info is transferred more easily with less effort. You’re tapping into the ALL, into the collective consciousness, into source energy. You can become an even more supreme conscious being than you already are by realizing your connection to all of this and the language of the universe… tapping into just the right frequency necessary to communicate with source energy.

By the way, if you’re a hard-core skeptic, none of this shizzle is going to work for you because that’s your intention. You don’t believe it will work… so guess what? It won’t!

If you do have total faith and believe then you and your crystals will do wonderful things together. Believe me. I know!
You can become a loving and responsible co-creator… if you’re not already. ♥
I’ll venture to guess that if you’re attracted to this kind of info, you already are that powerful co-creator.

Through your relationship with crystals, you’re going to be unconsciously communicating in sacred geometric lingo. And you’ll be doing so more effectively with less effort, communicating and entering into that feedback loop with the universe with conscious purpose. So how cool is that? And by diving into sacred geometry even further, you’ll be living your full potential, fully expressing your inner power with your DNA fully awakened, or reawakened, easily tapping into your potential and abilities for energy, for love, light, fulfilling your greatest potential. That’s really what it’s all about. Isn’t it?

Indulge in a Crystal Bath for Self-Mastery with Nuummite

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness, Crystal Healing, Everyday/Personal Stuffs, stress relief, Videos 11 Comments

Let’s talk about the amazing goodness of a Crystal Bath: the ultimate in energetically power packed sparkly relaxation!

In this video I’m sharing my recipe for a Crystal Bath for Self Mastery & Claiming Personal Power

I haven’t done a video from my bath tub “sacred space” in quite a while.

I was just getting ready to do a bath for self-mastery & claiming my personal power so I thought I’d take a moment & share what I’m up to with you. I apologize for the quality here as I didn’t bust out the DSLR to do this…it was really quick and in the moment.

I’ve been going through a paradigm shift of how I am doing things while also making more of an effort to connect with my personal magic.

So I got to thinking what stones or other energies do I want layer in for this bath, for the intention & specific purpose of connecting with my own personal magic.
I decided to work with Nuummite stones.

Nuummite is a black sparkly iridescent stone & hails from Greenland. Not a very common stone at all, it’s a mix of many different unique  minerals containing lithium-bearing amphibole, magnesium iron silicate, anthophyllite & gedrite.

What’s really cool about it is that it’s one of the oldest stones on our planet; estimated at about 3 billion years old. Yeah. BILLION, not million.

Nuummite has a very gentle energy. So if you really want to get an intense effect from it, you’ll want to amplify it with other crystals & clear quartz is ideal for doing that.
My Nuummite Crystal Bath Recipe
You don’t need to have ALL these ingredients. Any combination will work, but the more you do have, the more effective. Perhaps you can think of some other things to add in here as well to exponentiate even further?

  • 2 Nuummite Stones; they’re great for connecting with your personal magic for self-mastery and cleaning your personal power.
  • 1 Clear Quartz Crystal to amplify the energy.
  • 3-5 drops Lemon/Citron Essential Oil (NOT IN THE BATH) but in an oil burner or diffuser. Any brand will do, but I look for high quality, non-synthetic, fair-trade & organic. 🙂
  • 1 drop Clove Essential Oil (again in an oil burner or diffuser) & about 3 drops directly in the bath
  • 1-2 cups bath salts containing magnesium sulfate
  • I chose a guided meditation for self-mastery; so perfect to listen to while taking my bath & soaking in the energies from the Nuummite. This is that meditation. 🙂

Again, my goal with adding the Quartz Crystal was to amplify the energy of the Nuummite stones.
Layer the Energetic Frequencies
I like to layer in several resonant, yet similar energetic frequencies so they can harmonize & exponentiate or amplify each other. For example, here I added in some aromatherapy oils that are complimentary in energy to my purpose & intention.

Caution:  I did not add the lemon oil to my bath b/c I’ve learned through experience that freakin’ burns! Steer clear, Chick Pea. 

Instead, I’m burning the oils in my oil burner – my sacred geometry oil burner.  (((always layering the energies, this time w/ sacred geometry ☺))). **I don’t know where this oil burner came from or I’d link to it. It was a gift, but if you know, please post the link in the comments below!**

I added 1 drop of Clove essential oil to my oil burner.  I also added a few more drops of Clove directly in my actual bath water so I can more easily resonate with the energies.

Why is it so powerful to put gems & oils directly in your bath water?  Click here for a Classic Video + Blog I created on that. 
Mineral Magic
I always like to add in some bath salts containing Magnesium Sulfate b/c I like to connect with the mineral Magnesium in Epsom Salt Solution for super-relaxation. If you’d like to geek out & dive deeper into why Magnesium is so great for your health you can read more on that here.

And for a lil’ more luxuriating, I’m adding a hydrating face mask, by Karuna that someone recommended to me & said was really good. So I had to try that too. {NOTE:  I LOVED this thing! Uber-hydrating and plumping for my hormone-challenged-middle-aged skin. I should get a case of this stuff!)

Necessary Self Nurture Time: Time to connect with my crystals & do the inner work.

So make it a priority, grab your crystals (+ essential oils) and Soak it UP!

Do you ever draw a crystal bath for yourself?  What crystals do you use & for what intention?  Share in the comments below to inspire each other & indulge! Would love to hear about what you’re up to. 🙂


Are you Listening to the Signs from the Universe?

Hibiscus Moon chakras, creativity, Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, interview 14 Comments

Hi Crystal Hottie!

Hey! Hey! It’s time for 1 of my favorite types of blog posts. I love to shine the Jeweler’s Loupe on 1 of our own with my sparkly series of Crystal Healer Interviews. By doing this we all get some  fresh, new crystal insight from others in the Hibiscus Moon Universe that are living & breathing the same crystal path.  Exciting stuffs!

I’m so grateful & honored to have an entire worldwide network of Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers & Advanced Crystal Masters to tap into for these amazingly special blog posts. 

Today you’re going to meet a very talented & spirited  HMCA Advanced Crystal Master, Tree Mckenna Cinque. I’m so blessed to have worked with Tree as she is also part of our Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy Faculty as one of our beloved ACM teachers, sharing her crystal singing bowl expertise with us.

Tree’s message with us here in this blog is about listening to & honoring the signs from the Universe while being your authentic self.

She shares with us insights about her powerful, life changing experience with Pietersite + Moldavite,  how her success comes from letting her creativity shine and allowing the abundance to flow + how she works with collective group energy to manifest with crystal grids.   From the moment I met her, I knew we had someone special on our hands. Her energy is contagious & so very uplifting. You’ll see. 🙂

Here’s Tree!

What brought you to the world of Crystal Healing?
Well, first I would like to say that my involvement with the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy has literally Rocked My World…in a great way!!!!

I had always been interested in crystals from an early age. I remember digging on the side of my house in Queens with the neighborhood kids and finding Pyrite and Mica. We thought we found pirate treasure. What kid didn’t do that? LOL.

What really propelled me to study crystal healing was that I basically didn’t know enough about the glittery toolbox that I had. I kept amassing crystals, but did not know their uses. I would run around Greenwich Village in the early 1990’s, spending my entire $200 paycheck, buying Moldavite (of all things) & Record Keepers. All I did with them was place them on my windowsills….and allow 20 years to pass before I finally was ready to embrace their magic!

Crystals truly ARE magical.

They are facilitators, just by being in your presence.
However, they only work when you are ready to work with them.
Prior to my crystal and sound healing career path, I went back to school for interior design at 40. While working at a Healthcare design firm, I developed a passion for biophilic design. That is just a fancy word for incorporating nature into the built environment for healing. My concepts of using clay paint that emitted negative ions and natural stone tiles for spa-like serenity in hospice centers fell on deaf ears.  Interior Design, Publishing, Public Relations…None of my jobs made my soul sing and I kept getting sick. Shingles was one of the reasons why I am on this crystal healing path now.

Each time I veered from the healing arena, the Universe reminded me (with a swift kick) that I was on the wrong path.

When my husband suggested I follow my life-long metaphysics passion, the doors magically opened up. It was then that I found The Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy. After Stephanie invited me to be a guest on a Google Hangout, there was no turning back. I knew I had found my life’s purpose. I am forever grateful.

What crystal has had the biggest effect on you?
Actually crystals; plural. There are two. I had a crystal awakening.

My life literally changed when I began wearing Pietersite and Moldavite together.

[caption id="attachment_18298" align="aligncenter" width="255"] African Pietersite[/caption]

About one year after I graduated from design school, I began wearing a large Moldavite on my neck. I had read Robert Simmons’ Moldavite book and paid no mind to his warning that once Moldavite comes into your energy field, the carpet may get pulled out from under you and change your path.

[caption id="attachment_1576" align="aligncenter" width="570"] Moldavite[/caption]

Out of the blue, I woke up and decided I did not want to do design work anymore…after four years of study! Shortly after, I began wearing Pietersite with the Moldavite, I found Hibiscus Moon and the rest is history.
Pietersite helps you find your life’s purpose and Moldavite makes it happen!
It puts the pedal to the metal and off you go. This is my trademark stone combo.
What do others in your life think about the path you are on?
People think I “march to the beat of my own drum” –a chakra drum, of course, as I do sound healing work. I wouldn’t have it any other way! 

My path has taken many exciting turns and I attribute it all to the effect the crystals have had on my energy field. I was strengthened.

Because of my crystal training, I have become a Vibrational Frequency Shifter (my new title) and I have helped empower so many people. I hold crystal bowl sound healing group sessions, private Reiki sessions, and Tibetan bowl healing sessions as well.

I have several Facebook groups on crystals and empowerment. I love to teach and run a business page called Crystal Harmonic Healing and groups called The Stone Snob and TreEvolve. (We never heal; we evolve!) In addition, I have developed an awesome tribe that participates in my almost monthly crystal grids. Many HMCA graduates participate in my crystal grids and, collectively, we help manifest our wishes.

It is a ton of work, but coaching, sending Reiki and other mojo to my group members and constantly charging the grids, really helps create desired outcomes. That is a very large part of my business. Facebook has been huge for me. I am so fortunate for my crystal tribe.

This path has extended beyond crystals…because of crystals.

People either think it is so cool or think I’m crazy.

I am doing the whole “Shop, Pray, Love” journey and I don’t care what people think. I am loving life!!

My husband asks when it is going to stop. I say it is just beginning!!
Be your authentic self and let your soul sing!!
What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this path?
Learning the Hows and Whys (thank you Hibiscus Moon) and the science behind how crystals work. Knowing this gave me the confidence to put myself out there.

The other very important thing that made a difference was the belief that the Universe would provide if the path was right. I admit, I was nervous about paying for my crystal certification. Once I committed, the Universe conspired to make it happen. Lose the fear and the worry. The money just started flowing.

My mantra for this:
“The Universe provides financial abundance in my life and I am grateful!”
How do you navigate being a crystal healer and a mama on a daily basis?
My kids grew up with my crystal obsession, so it is not a big deal.

I love it when my daughter calls me from college in cloudy Michigan and says, “Mom, this weather is so depressing and everyone has Seasonal Affective Disorder Syndrome. Please send me some crystals.”  So, off go the Citrine and the Sunstone bracelet.

My entire family is supportive of my crystal “habit.” It makes it easier for them to buy me gifts. 😉
Do any ridicule you for being interested in crystal healing? If so, how do you handle that?
Yes and no.

There will always be people who do not understand what we do with crystals. I have encountered some who are under the false impression that we pray to crystals.

Someone half-jokingly told me she should throw Holy water on me because I was wearing a Moldavite pendant. People just do not understand unless you explain it in simple terms.

I tell people everything on this planet is a gift, no different from food and flowers…or your diamond engagement ring. That usually quiets them. If that doesn’t work, I open my mouth and throw around terms like entrainment and Dominant Oscillary Rate. It leaves people speechless. It is then that they understand that this IS science and I know my shizzle.
What is your go-to crystal for grounding?
I have two.

I recently went to Glastonbury, England on my way to Stonehenge. It is a crystal lover’s dream as there are loads of crystal shops. I found a unique and awesome Smoky Quartz from Mount Sinai, Egypt. Talk about grounding–Holy Moses! (I bet he even had a few.)

The other is Botryoidal Hematite. This stone is an instant grounder.

[caption id="attachment_18299" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Botryoidal Hematite. Rob Lavinsky, – CC-BY-SA-3.0 [CC BY-SA 3.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons[/caption]It bubbles the issues to the surface and then grounds them.
Do you have any advice for anyone who is considering this path?
I learned the expensive way that less is more.

I used to buy every crystal I saw.

I still buy a lot, but now, I am more discriminating about my purchases. I have changed my views and think about the “tools” that would most benefit me and my practice. Sometimes it means that you should wait until you can afford a better grade of crystal.

I really like using Chromotherapy and strengthening the chakras with rays of color. For instance, the Throat Chakra can really benefit from the blue ray emitted by a gem quality Aquamarine. Now, I opt for crystals that are a lil’ pricier, but really get the job done.
What is the primary way you utilize crystals in your practice?
I love to spoil my clients. I work with crystal layouts in all of my Reiki sessions.

Up until recently, I included crystal layouts in my signature crystal bowl sound healing sessions and “lost” a few. I thought it best to honor my stones and use them in smaller venues.

As I mentioned before, I have a “Rocking” following on Facebook who participates in my crystal grids. I am a Silicon Dioxide addict, so I have tons of clear Quartz. I program a stone for each person in my crystal grid. I employ moon phases, Reiki, Sacred Geometry and other mojo to make them ROCK! My grid recipes are kind of like the KFC Recipe, very secret. LOL.

All I know is that they work and the participants are all happy!
From where do you draw inspiration in your crystal practice?
I draw inspiration from all my clients, Facebook followers and fellow crystal healers.

With my clients, I look to find out THEIR needs. To help others, you have to find out people’s issues and address them. It is so rewarding to recommend a stone like Labradorite when someone is experiencing grief… and it makes them feel better.

I am inspired by those I meet on Facebook. The knowledge that people bring to the table is incredible. I am humbled on a daily basis. Everyone has something to offer, and more if they could just remember it. For example, you never know if someone was a healer in a past life!
How did you celebrate or reward yourself once you graduated?
Gee, I am still celebrating years later. Just ask the people in my Facebook groups. Hee hee. This Crystal Sister rewards herself quite often with crystals, crystal bowls and healing goodies to make my practice “off the charts” Tree-Authentic! I am an admitted Crystal-holic! Even the shopkeepers tell me that, but it makes my soul soar!

Tree’s Bio: Tree McKenna Cinque is a Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Master, Usui Reiki Master, Sound Practitioner, Angel Practitioner, Hypnotherapist and Empowerment Coach. Feel free to join her FB crystal group, “The Stone Snob…Tree McKenna Cinque” or her FB page, “Crystal Harmonic Healing.”
