Sacred Geometry | The Sacred Language of Crystals

Hibiscus Moon science 12 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.

Cymatics
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?

Crystal Energy Experiment: SEE the PROOF for yourself!

Hibiscus Moon Gem Elixirs, science, Videos 26 Comments

It’s Experiment Time! 

You know how I love to share science with you! And being a former science teacher, I really get into experiments!

Plus many of you are always asking for proof of the crystal energy I always speak of.

So, I want to show you the results of a crystal energy experiment using the Scientific Method that I recently spent some time doing…and that you can replicate for yourself (hallmark of a good sound scientific experiment!)

What we have going on in this experiment is some kitty grass that I grow for Topaz (my crystal-lovin’ kitty!). This is the seed I like to use for her (chemical-free & non-GMO, thank you very much.)

 

I wanted to see the effects of growing the kitty grass with crystals as well as with Pristine Hydro water would have on the plants.

Just to explain a bit about the Pristine Hydro water, it’s basically mega-amplified gem elixir water on tap with all the benefits of being living water restored to its more natural & ultimate healthy state. (We use a pristine hydro water system for our all drinking & cooking water. PristineHydro water is  basically Gem Elixir water on tap that establishes the proper pH, takes out all the impurities, even completely gets rid of the chlorine and fluoride in the water which is difficult to do. In addition, it vortexes the now healthy water around crystals that I’ve personally selected to be added to my system. Our drinking water is extremely important to me & to have it charged with crystals too is just icing on the cake! You can find out more about it in my blog post here.)

Experiment Set Up
I tested the effects of sprouting the seeds & growing the grass in 4 separate containers, careful to change only 1 variable in each; all other components remained the same; same container, location, amount of water, soil, sunlight, etc. These are called the constants. Humor me while I go back to my science teaching days! 😉

Any scientist will tell you when conducting an experiment, accurate record keeping, openness & replication are very important to maintain  credibility. And I’m all about that! Especially this being a crystal healing experiment, I wanted to be sure to follow all “the rules”. Know what I mean?

I had 4 different “trials” going:

  • 1st container: plain tap water only (this one acted as the Control in the experiment)
  • 2nd container: plain tap water + crystals
  • 3rd container: PristineHydro water (no crystals)
  • 4th container: PristineHydro water + crystals (in other words…the Crystal Bomb-Diggity!)

As a valid empirical experiment should have, I included a control as 1 of the trials; meaning that no variables have been applied to that one. It’s just been watered with plain ole’ tap water & no crystals included at all so we can use it to compare the others to.

All 4 trails have been treated the same way; the constants:

  • all kept in the same tray
  • I rotated them every day @ the same time of day
  • seeds were sprouted in the same location, receiving same amount of sun
  • same kind of seeds, and same kind of soil, same kind of container…you get the idea

The Results
You may have noticed the container watered with plain tap water and grown with crystals only, no special water other than plain tap…there was a clear difference in the vitality of the grass blades along with the height, thickness and strength of it (photo below).

On the next trail; the 1 with no crystals, but watered with PristineHydro water (photo below), you’ll note that the grass was much more lush & grew so long it was spilling out onto the ground, yet the blades not as strong-looking as the previous trial.

But the final trial had the best vitality, the best growth; the kitty grass is just flourishing, absolutely thriving; thick, lush, strong & vital. This trial had it all; with the powerful crystals + PristineHydro water Combo! Look for yourself (photo below). It’s going OFF!

So imagine what’s going on within the electromagnetic frequencies  & the very cells of these plants.
Stem Cell Biologist, Dr. Bruce Lipton says “cells are programmable…dynamically linked to information from the environment, which is downloaded into the cell.”
We are made of trillions of cells transmitting & receiving energy. Imagine if you were immersing your own frequencies & cells in the same sort of crystal-infused environment. What if you’re drinking powerful gem elixir water, one similar to the PristineHydro water…and if you were bathing your environment with crystals & using Gem Elixirs regularly, keeping crystals in & around your body within your electromagnetic field.

This is what I love/live to teach about!

Just think….what could be going on with your cells if they were immersed in such an enviroment?

Want to try it?
I’ve done this experiment a couple of times and I encourage you to do it. Try it yourself!! That’s the best way to know and see.

When you first start to sprout the seeds they’ll all look the same. It looks like nothing’s happening.

They will sprout & grow just as well with just as much vitality with regular tap water and no crystals as the other ones do. So you won’t see a difference.

BUT THEN…it’s when they start to grow that you see a difference in their vitality and how they thrive!

Are you gonna dive in & give this experiment a go?  Please tell me what you think in the comments below. I’d love to hear your results, thoughts + experiences so we can share with our #CrystalHottie community.

Crystal Blessings!

Are crystals alive?

Hibiscus Moon Crystals, energy work, Mother Earth, science 24 Comments

Are our beloved crystals ALIVE?

Are there living “entities” in crystals?

Do they have consciousness?

Are they having a life experience?

Is it like a conscious being, the crystal itself?

My opinion is that, yes, they have a form of consciousness. It may not be in the same way we experience or understand that but, yes.

We may even apply some sort of “consciousness” to all matter…
“there is a quality of life and intelligence to all matter. The living universe.” ~ Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), cosmological theorist, philosopher, mathematician & poet, burned at the stake due to his controversial views & heresy. 🙁

In fact, number 1 of the 7 Hermetic Laws is this: Hermetic Law of Mind; all is mind & everything is energy. That’s the very point I’m trying to drive home here.

Now, I come at this from a very scientific point of view & background due to my analytical mind, education & former work. I’m always looking for the how and the why & then I really like to focus in on the available science that may back up my theory & find the common threads…b/c it gives my thought process a cultural backbone…plus when I teach this shizzle to my students, they LOVE that science-assist b/c it gives them such super-confidence in explaining this stuff to others. Yeah, Baby!!

It’s what I do…PROUDLY!

What’s really cool is that different scientists of various disciplines are starting to see the light, coming into this powerful collective consciousness where many are starting to question & play with the idea of…what makes something ALIVE?

And it can even lead to the even bigger question that astrophysicists are always asking,  “OK, where is that God particle? Where did life come from? Where exactly did life spring from?”
I feel that studying crystals along with their geometry is the key to understanding the science of the cosmos! Of EVERYTHING!
If you study crystals you’ll realize that they effortlessly express beauty, form & consciousness in a geometric way. I teach that this method of communication may be THE PREFERRED universal method of communication.

If we take a look at the evidence for how the first DNA strand (a sacred spiral) came into existence – that spiral seems to have actually evolved from a crystal prototype or an actual crystal itself!  – more specifically actually a clay-silicon-included crystal. (Silicon is a basic ingredient of quartz.) Silicon actually grows in a spiral.

It grows in a spiral.

So does DNA.

Apple don’t fall far from the tree, huh?

Patterns.

Magical Patterns & common threads.

BTW, quartz in clay giving rise to life is detailed quite scientifically in this book if you care to get geeky with it (as I often do):

What I think is really cool about that…many scientists are coming to this conclusion: about a crystal giving rise to what we usually define as “life”. The fact that there’s now evidence backing this up makes me supremely happy b/c I have a strong inner knowing that’s where all “life” sprang from (on this planet at least): CRYSTALS.

It really kind of makes sense, right? From a crystal.

Explains that close relationship, attraction & resonance so many of us have with them!
So where do we draw the line?
The line where you say… this is life and this isn’t?

Like, for instance, the universe seems to be conscious in & of itself, or the multiverse I should say.

Where are you going to draw that line and go “this is alive and this is not” ???

I mean, we can’t even agree among scientists what defines life exactly. We can’t even agree there because it seems like crystals also fit into that definition and they go, “Yeah, but no, obviously that’s not life,” or viruses fit into that definition and they will say, “Oh, but that’s not life.”

Why? Tell me “why not”.

So it gets really muddied up there & I feel like anything that is energy, (which is freakin’ everything), has consciousness. And then where do you draw the line where that consciousness becomes individual or apart from or a part of “the one”; the collective consciousness? Oops, that’s a whole other rabbit hole there! *climbing back out & back on topic*
Let’s see where our crystals measure up, shall we?
Right now the general consensus in science regarding what makes something a “living thing” are these criteria:

  • complexity
  • access some sort of food for energy
  • ability to grow
  • ability to reproduce
  • ability to evolve in order to survive changing conditions

BTW, crystals do indeed consume various forms of energy present in a supersaturated solution in order to form. What in the heck am I talking about? Check out my old YT video here where I explain that & I tried to capture the actual action of crystal growth on camera. I think I did a pretty good job!:

The idea of a crystal being able to evolve in order to survive its changing environment may be foreign to some. But to those of us who’ve worked with crystals or even just had several in our collections for some length of time may have witnessed this over time. 🙂 

So many of you come to me with stories of your crystals changing all the time & I’ve witnessed it too!

Even in the science lab, crystallographers have noted a crystal submerged in sea salt gaining more clarity; evolving to survive changing conditions.

And, of course, as a crystal-lover, you know that crystals grow & change. This is how we get crystal formations such as these (be forewarned the videos I’m linking to below are OLDIES…but goodies!):

  • keys
  • phantoms
  • cathedral lightbraries
  • self-healed crystals
  • double terminated crystals
  • oh, so many more…

Yes, indeed…parts of a crystal can break off during its growth process & become a new growing crystal itself, demonstrating that they do indeed reproduce by getting a form of energy nourishment direct from Mama Earth. The actual scientific study of crystallography immerses you in this stuffs & allows you to really appreciate that crystals are most certainly a “living thing”. (That’s my opinion of course and not all crystallographers will agree with me).

The BIG difference here is that crystals, being millions or some even billions of years old, take a VERY LONG time to do these things so perhaps b/c it doesn’t happen quickly enough for us to notice & perceive the changes, many of us simply think it doesn’t qualify. 

…well, crystals can pretty much do all that listed above (maybe not in the same way we do…but THEY DO!), so if that’s our definition then we better include crystals as “ALIVE” or revise our freakin’ definition of what a living thing is!

So yeah. Ask the question…is a flame or a hurricane alive? Mama Earth herself?
Keep in mind that many ancient teachings & cultures, especially those of aboriginal tribes teach that crystals are alive. In addition, they believe that the Earth itself is a living breathing entity.

BTW, I feel quite strongly that the Earth, the Sun, Milky Way Galaxy, shit…our entire Multiverse is also alive & I am not alone in that belief…even many academics & scientists are on board with that one. 

This idea of our planet being a living being is an ancient one.

It is said that Atlanteans totally believed our Earth was alive, a being unto herself, that indeed possesses many of the hallmarks of being “alive”; even responding to the stimuli of our actions or the cosmic actions she’s bathed in. In turn, knowing this, the Atlanteans “fed” Mama Earth with good stimuli by creating sacred Earth communication spaces made up of crystal & stone circles built for the specific purpose of strengthening our planet. Perhaps this is connected in someway to Native American medicine wheels?

And what is, Mama Earth, anyway but the single largest crystal we know of? (I dive deep into this concept with my students in my Certified Crystal Healer Course & Advanced Crystal Master Course.)

Did you know that the core of our planet is a single humongous iron crystal…presenting itself in all its Sacred Geometric glory as a dodecahedron??!

Yeah.

“Crystals are living beings at the beginning of creation. All things have a frequency and a vibration.” – Nikola Tesla
In this great music video even scientists Bill Nye & Neil DeGrasse Tyson (whom I both HIGHLY respect!) ask…
“Is a crystal alive?”
Put your dancing shoes on b/c you’re gonna want to get up & shake your booty to this!

Let’s ask questions…beyond the horizon…

Late scientist, inventor and author, Itzhak Bentov (whom I again… highly respect) is quoted as stating,
“We may at first have trouble trying to visualize a rock or an atom as a living thing because we associate consciousness with life. But this notion is just a human limitation; a rock may also have difficulty in understanding human consciousness.”

Brilliant!

Is The Power Of Quartz A Scam?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, science 71 Comments

Is the power of crystals & quartz energy a scam?

No way! How will I prove that to you?

By throwing some science at it, of course!

Quartz is amazing in so many ways.

It makes up some of our very favorite crystals to work with:

  • clear quartz
  • amethyst
  • citrine
  • smokey quartz
  • rose quartz
  • aventurine
  • jaspers
  • ….I could go on & on

What’s so special about it?
OK, really quick we’re going to dip into some physics here. But I’ll make it painless…I swear.

Oh, c’mon…it’s not that bad.

So a wee bit ago (in the year 1880) in a Paris lab, physicist brothers Jacques & Pierre Curie (husband to Marie) made a new discovery regarding quartz crystals.

Together they found that by wiring a quartz crystal to a recording meter & striking it, they could produce an electric signal. Whoa!
Then they found that squeezing it resulted in the same. Wait! A rock crystal was making electricity here?

Well, not really making it. Crystals cannot create or generate energy, despite that popular name given to quartz crystals of a certain rare shape & size: “Generators”. But,  some crystals can serve as transducers.

So what the flip is a transducer???

A transducer is capable of transforming one form of energy into another…rather than generating it

In this case we’re talking about transducing mechanical energy into electrical energy. Or vice versa: an electric current into a mechanical force. A wee bit ‘o physics. Ya with me so far?

So, what I’ve just described & what the Pierre bro’s discovered is known as: piezoelectricity. And it’s 1 super-geeky reason why quartz is so scientifically magical!

It means that quartz produces a voltage when pressured in some way. An electric charge actually builds up in the quartz as a reaction to the stress.

In fact, some scientists think that “ball lightning” may be the result of electrified gas in our atmosphere from quartz-bearing rocks being subjected to tectonic stress & pressure from Mama Earth moving her crustal plates around, like granite. How cool is that?
Great Balls of Lightning!

How does Quartz do this shizzle?
Let me show you.

Quartz is able to conduct an electrical charge b/c of its precise crystalline nature. Because of this, it vibrates at a very specific frequency making it ideal for use in watches & other technologies.

The next question I often get from my students is:

“What frequency is quartz crystal? I heard it was ‘High Frequency’.”

And my answer is…

From a scientific point of view, that’s the wrong way to look at it. See, a particular quartz crystal’s resonant frequency depends on many variables such as:

  • its particular size
  • shape
  • flexibility
  • unique crystalline structure
  • the speed of sound of the material
  • or even the environment that’s it’s in at the time

Yeah, I know! Not so simple.

So this piezoelectric thing was a HUGE discovery for the Pierre Bro’s & gave quartz crystal a whole new importance…while validating what the metaphysical community had inherently known since ancient times, but didn’t have the relatively new science to back it up! BTW, that’s the whole premise of my crystal courses…science backing up & giving confidence to our crystal healing & therapy practices.

BOOO-YAH!

Today, piezoelectricity is commonly used in our modern technology in so many ways. (Since I fear losing too many of you with this physics-stuffs, I’ll just link to examples if you care to dig deeper into that.)

Quartz is unique; its flexible yet resistant to temperature-induced expansion & contraction, unlike other materials.

So what?

Well, this makes quartz perfect for use in the accurate mechanics used in things like a watch!

Busting the Fantasy Bubble: Now, I know we’d all like to imagine a mini crystal like this one below lives inside our quartz watch…

But instead, they actually are high quality, high-purity quartz crystals laser-trimmed in a lab into the shape of a tuning fork & vibrate at a very specific frequency. B/c of its piezoelectric property, this teeny quartz tuning fork is manipulated by applying a voltage with this specific vibrational frequency (usually 32,768 Hz) until it entrains & sets…& they look like this…

[caption id="attachment_17260" align="aligncenter" width="505"] This is a quartz crystal resonator, (basically a cute mini tuning fork!) used as the timekeeping component in quartz watches and clocks, with the case removed.[/caption]

But, quartz isn’t the only crystal that’s got this cool property!
Crystals that are Piezoelectric

  • All quartz
  • Berlinite (a rare phosphate mineral)
  • All Topaz
  • All Tourmaline
  • Macedonite (lead titanite)

BTW, I consider quartz, topaz & tourmalines to be some of the most powerful & potent crystals to work with. Now you know why. 😉
So how does all this science help us with Crystal Healing?
Piezoelectric crystals are highly beneficial to our energy fields.

I always teach that we really need to pay attention to our energetic hygiene b/c anything neglected there will eventually become more dense; condensing & manifesting in our physical bodies.

In my Hibiscus Moon Method, I teach a very specific technique in detail that allows our Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers to tap into all the power inherent in this pyroelectric property…and I teach you more on the physics behind why it works.

Just to quickly explain, the piezoelectric property of quartz allows us to tap into the body’s polarity. We also couple it with other properties & involve the transducing aspect to play a big role in crystal therapy. Pretty cool, huh?

BTW, quartz also has some other cool physics properties like pyroelectricity &  triboluminesence.

So please let me know if this blog helped you to learn a bit more about the science behind crystal healing in the comments below…or if it sent you running for the hills, let me know that too!

Crystal Blessings,

 

P.S. If this sort of thing appeals to you & you’d like to go way deeper in your crystal practice, I teach all about this & so much more in my Certified Crystal Healer Course. We’ll be enrolling again for our fall term very soon. You can get on the Wait List here.
