Crystals for Lowering Your EMF Risks…and WHY you should care

crystals for emf

First…

THE BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. I feel crystals should be used as a compliment to a sound holistic health plan & not as a replacement for regular medical and/or psychological care & consultation. Please check with a doctor first before applying any advise given here.

Second…

This is an updated & revamped version of a classic blog post. So much new info has come out around this subject that I had to include it & update here. Hope you find it useful! ♥

OK, have you noticed over the last few years people have become much more concerned with EMF (electromagnetic frequency) radiation & now a new possible threat; nuclear radiation in the atmosphere? AKA, EM Pollution.

We’re hearing more & more about cell phone radiation and how that can be harmful to our health. (Thank goodness the word is finally getting out about that!)

Some symptoms of excess EMF radiation are:

  • fatigue
  • joint & muscle pain
  • decreased attention span
  • memory loss
  • difficulty focusing
  • insomnia

BTW, these are the same symptoms of being un-grounded…of feeling Yuck & Stuck!
I feel there’s no such thing as coincidence & that this is directly due to too much EMF in our environments causing us to become un-grounded.
Crystals to Ward off EMF
In my Certified Crystal Healer Courses we discuss specific crystals & protocols for counteracting EMF pollution. Crystals you don’t want to use are any sort of silicate crystals: quartz, lepidolite, opal, etc.

Why? Well, for the simple reason that they easily slide into resonance with electronics & microwave radiation. That property is why silicon (what silicates & quartz [silicon dioxide] are made of) is so widely used in technology! It’s an excellent semi-conductor of energy.

Some ask me what sort of stones they can place around their computers and laptops to help protect them from any radiation coming from there. I feel the best stones to use for this sort of EMF protection are ferromagnetic (iron containing) stones such as:

  • lodestone/magnetite (these are essentially the same mineral, but lodestone is found naturally magnetized while magnetite is not)
  • hematite
  • pyrite

WARNING: be certain not to have any strongly magnetic stones near your laptop or other devices = can cause LAPTOP DEATH due to hard-drive being erased.

2 More Non-Ferromagnetic Minerals Ideal for This

  • Black tourmaline – (even though it’s a silicate). The reason I throw this stone into the hat is b/c it’s got just the right combo of elements & it has the added yin-benefit of having iron in it. Black tourmaline is known for its ability to transmute energy & due to it having piezoelectric as well as pyroelectric properties too. (You can check out those 2 blog posts if you want to really get geeky with this).
  • Another recent favorite for EMF protection is shungite (You can find out why in that blog post).
  • [caption id="attachment_11684" align="aligncenter" width="600"] These are 2 shungite pieces from my crystal grid that surrounds my wifi router.[/caption]

    Now! Here’s the KICKER that I’ve discovered!! Most of these are the same exact stones many cultures teach to use to ground ourselves!!! Again, no flippin’ coincidence. Don’t you just love when the ancient knowledge & the new revelations dovetail together like that? ♥

    Here are all my fav EMF-Curb-Kickin’ stones together…

    Other tips + techniques:

    • Make a lodestone (magnetic) pendulum, spin it through your EMF to strengthen weak areas (one of our Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Masters has created one of these for us & sells them in her shop!)
    • Protect yourself from so much cell phone use. In this blog post I talk about a receiver device that will do just that. Children should not use cell phones due to their higher susceptibility, reduce your own cell phone use & use a land line whenever possible
    • Place Kernite or Colemanite crystals in any low dose nuclear radiation environment to absorb; these crystals are Boron-based, thereby accepting & ionizing radiation

    [caption id="attachment_19172" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Colemanite[/caption]
    • Unplug your bedroom as much as possible (listen to Warren’s recording below for how’s & why’s)
    • Reduce or eliminate your use of wireless internet (you can put it on a timer so at least part of the time it’s not radiating throughout your house, physical body & auric field).

    Healing Magnesium Crystal Bath for EMF Detox
    Not only is this bath great for de-toxing excess EMF build up but this bath is super-relaxing.

    Magnesium is a magical mineral that increases serotonin in our systems which creates calm relaxation in us. This bath is perfect for use after radiation exposure of any sort (going through TSA, x-ray screenings, etc.) or even too much time on your mobile device or computer.

    I adapted & slightly tweaked the original recipe of this bath from the book Zapped (linked below). DISCLAIMER: (Children, pregnant women & anyone with chronic illness should avoid this bath or consult with their doctor first re: high water temp.)

    • 1 lb. Himalayan sea salt (can sub regular sea salt)
    • 1 lb. baking soda
    • 1-2 tablespoons of ionic Magnesium Concentrated trace minerals (stress from EMF & radiation pollution drains magnesium & increases adrenaline)
    • tub of very hot water (hot as you can stand)
    • 1 tumbled stone each of serpentine & rhodonite (magnesium containing minerals safe for plopping into your bath)

    Now just soak in the tub until it cools. Then after your bath, don’t dry off or shower off right away. You can choose to rub down with some magnesium oil or if you’re going to bed you can rub some on the bottom of your feet. You want to allow the minerals to soak into your skin.

    If you’d like to learn more about residual static build-up, wireless EMF, radioactivity & how to lower your risk and avoid EMF exposure around your house here’s a great recording of an interview with Vicki Warren, the past executive director of the Institute for Bau-Biologie & Ecology. Here she talks about all of these things & gives excellent advice on examining your home for EMF dangers! Awesome stuffs.

    I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book. Truly eye-opening! Be informed & get protected:

    I don’t like to fear monger but I feel so much of this info is under-reported and so easily remedied. I think its good to get this info out there from time to time & remind ourselves to clean up our energy + get grounded & balance.

    If you have other tips or ideas, please share. We’d love to hear them here! And if you found this post useful or helpful, please share it with others. ♥

    Get your sparkly lasso b/c it’s crystal round-up time!

    Today I’m going to list out my 10 Most Popular Crystal Blog Posts of 2015!

    Why?

    B/c just in case you missed any of these last year, I want to make sure you see them now. **These blog posts really vibed it up BIG-TIME with our Crystal Hottie Community so chances are…you’re going to love at least a few of them too!**

    So here they are…my most sparkliest 10 posts of 2015:

    1. Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Himalayan Salt Lamps (you love those freakin’ Salt Lamps!)
    [caption id="attachment_15786" align="alignright" width="297"] Topaz is a smart cookie, you know![/caption]

     

    I get a lot of questions like these about Himalayan Salt Lamps:

    What’s the big deal about these Himalayan Salt Lamps?

    Do they really do what everybody says they do?

    So the major thing that Himalayan Salt Lamps “do” is that they induce negative ions into your environment. (We’ll get to that in full post!!!)

    I have 1 in my sacred crystal studio. He’s super heavy & pretty darn big…comes up to my knee.  I really like to have a salt lamp in just about every room of our home (2 in the bedroom; we have 1 on each of our night stands on either side of our bed.)

    2. The Ultimate Guide to Shungite (HOTTEST new stone on the market)
    Shungite, shungite, shungite!

    This stuff came out on the new age stone-lovers scene about 3 years ago & made quite the big splash. I’m not sure why it suddenly became so popular but it’s not usually listed in the older, more popular crystal property books so people are often left wondering & asking me lots & lots of questions about it.

    There are numerous web articles out there that make lots of unfounded claims about shungite so I really felt the need to finally get this blog post out there.

    3.  3 Crystals to Mega Boost Your Self-Esteem (really struck a chord)
    Have issues with worthiness? Self-Worth? Self-esteem? Self love?

    Well, I’ve got some crystals for you!

    Yes, I’ve got some crystals to help boost your feelings of worthiness, or boost your self-esteem, your self-worth. 

    You know, a lot of us have issues with this.  Because…maybe we’ve been bullied.  Perhaps, there are people in our lives that talk negatively to us or criticize us for every little thing we do. 🙁

    After a while you start to believe that stuffs.  Keep in mind, they’re being this way b/c you’re not just like them, because of their own feelings of low self-esteem & low self-worth.

    4. WARNING: If Toxic Crystals Are So Bad, Why Do Some Recommend Them? (watch out!)
    If Toxic Crystals Are So Bad, Why Do Some Recommend Them?

    Well, I really cannot say why some recommendations don’t give at least a fair warning, but I suppose that most who are recommending the crystals assume the danger is low. Sometimes it is…and sometimes it isn’t.

    Here’s a really good question I was recently asked by a student:

    If Cinnabar is a toxic crystal why do crystal healing books recommend it?

    For that matter, why would anyone recommend working with ANY toxic crystals at all?

    5.  Is The Power Of Quartz A Scam? (explains the science behind HOW quartz crystals work…you eat up that science shiz as much as I do!)
    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

    In the crystal world, there’s no other crystal that embodies “sexy” better than carnelian: pure sexy energy!

    Does this sound like you these days?

    • tired & drained? 
    • poor social skills?
    • deny yourself of pleasures?
    • lack of passion, enthusiasm, excitement?
    • lack of creativity?
    • fear of change?
    • frigidity and/or fear of sex?

    Then this is the stone for you!

    7. Sparkly Ideas for Using Crystals with Children (Kids + Crystals; an effortless combo)
    I’m so excited about this one, because I get asked about this a lot, and it’s one of my favorite subjects to talk about, it’s:

    Crystals for Children

    Sometimes I’m asked what crystals are good for kids to bring with them to school, to calm down their energy because sometimes, some  children have a lot more energy than others.

    So, we have part A & Part B of this discussion:

  • Calming down a child’s energy if necessary
  • Crystals kids can have in their bedroom or for school to help them feel safe + protected (perhaps against nightmares), that will also help transmute negative energy so that it’s perceived by them as neutral and not perceived as “negative”; a handy tool for them to have in their pocket.

    8. Can I share deep? Some stuff you didn’t know about me… (some personal stuffs about me)
    Tag, you’re it!

    I got “tagged” by Flora Sage (one of my buddies from YouTube) for an Intuitive Tag/Challenge.

    I thought I should also post this here on my blog b/c many of you don’t follow me on YouTube & in this video I share a lot of fun personal stuffs that I would really love to share with YOU.

    The Share:

    1.  Share your first paranormal experience that comes to mind

    The first thing that comes to my mind is when I saw a UFO when I was 3-years-old.  I still think to this day that it  was a UFO or possibly more than one even, started when I was about 3.  It never escalated to contact or anything like that, but it began my experience. A number of other incidences have happened over my lifetime as far as viewing, seeing UFOs.  I already did a video explaining that whole experience.  It was quite interesting.

    9.  Crystals for your living space & can I squeeze into an amethyst crystal?(practical crystal info to make your home a Happy Sacred Space)

    “Should there be a certain set of crystals or a “crystal mix” for rooms like your living room or living space?”

    I think that it’s not a “should”, but there are definitely things you can do to make your living space feel more comfy; more vibrationally aligned with the type of energy that you’re trying to bring in to a living room or great room living space.

    Usually, that kind of room is a room where everyone likes to hang out, several people will gather for anything & so you want it to be a space that has good energy within it.

    10. The MacGyver Approach to Crystal Healing (do you want to figure this crystal healing shizzle all out & rig it up on your own? Maybe, maybe not.)
    Teenagers sure are funny.

    I miss teaching them science in the classroom. It was so amusing to me that they had discovered older 80’s shows on Netflix that my generation used to enjoy; Walker, Texas Ranger, Magnum PI & MacGyver to name a few. And they would often come to me in the very hands-on, unconventional classroom that I ran, wanting to try to “MacGyver” something up.

    Of course, I always encouraged it (as long as it didn’t involve blowing something up!) So off they went with duct tape & paper clips seeing what they could cobble together. Hysterical!!

    Many of you have asked me this question on my Facebook page;

    “Why can’t I just teach myself all this crystal healing stuff with books or the info available online?”

    So, you want to MacGyver it up?

    Shungite | The Ultimate Guide and Healing Properties

    Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, geology, science 170 Comments

    Shungite came out on the new age stone-lovers scene about three years ago and made quite the big splash. I’m not sure why it suddenly became so popular but it’s not usually listed in the older, more popular crystal property books so people are often left wondering and asking me lots and lots of questions about it.

    There are numerous web articles out there that make lots of unfounded claims so I really felt the need to finally get this blog post out there.

    [caption id="attachment_16381" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Raw Shungite Stone. By Amrith.de (Own work) [GFDL (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html) or CC BY 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons[/caption]
    What is this stone?
    Estimated to be about 2 BILLION years old, shungite gets its name from its discovery deposit-site near the Shun’ga village in Karelia, Russia and some say can be up to 98% pure carbon. That’s quite pure. 

    [caption id="attachment_16379" align="aligncenter" width="427"] Location of Shun’ga village, Karelia, Russia. Credit: Google Maps.[/caption]

    Most geologists now agree that the shungite deposit was created by layers upon layers of ancient organic remains, however some claim that it came from a carbon-rich asteroid strike originating from our Solar System’s own asteroid belt.

    Hmmmm, I do like that last scenario.

    A LOT.

    (OUTER SPACE!)… but there just isn’t enough geologic evidence supporting that claim at this time. 🙁

    Then we have a more PURE form of this stone known as Noble Shungite aka Elite shungite (shown in below photo). Note it has more of that silvery sheen to it.

    Expect the Noble variety to be more pricey than the regular kind. It’s all about supply and demand so the more expensive price is due to its rarity. The Noble variety is my preference for putting directly into my water to create healing gem elixirs with because it’s more of a pure carbon form (anywhere from 70% to 95%), so fewer impurities of any other element; thereby getting the energetic job done more efficiently and with less interference.

    [caption id="attachment_21080" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Noble Shungite. By MOs810 (Own work) [CC BY-SA 4.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0)], via Wikimedia Commons[/caption]
    So What’s the Big Deal About Shungite?
    There are lots of claims.

    Some say it can do EVERYTHING and cure ALL.

    I’m not going to blindly jump on that bandwagon because, you know, I always like to back up my info with science or other evidence. So I’m only going to list out what I’ve been able to find evidence for (doesn’t mean I’m still not researching and trying out other theories).

    So, here’s what I’ve got so far:
    1. Water Purifier
    FACT: “Shungite is an effective sorbent for removal of organic and inorganic substances, pathogenic bacteria and heavy metals from contaminated water.” ~ as quoted from respected scientific source; Science Direct. In other words, it purifies water and has anti-bacterial properties.

    Apparently, Peter the Great first noticed shungite water’s powerful healing and antifungal + antibacterial properties in the 18th century by testing on it out himself and his soldiers. After getting such amazing results, he decided to set up a spa in Karelia, Russia so others could benefit from it as well. Nice guy. 😉

    Spas in the area have been taking wise advantage of the area’s healing waters ever since and coming up with such luxuries, such as trips to natural shungite springs and even serving shungite vein tea with local cowberries plus wild Karelian honey. Yum! I wanna go.

    Pure well-washed shungite (not the un-pure varieties that aren’t mostly carbon) is totally safe to put directly in your water-glass. That’s how I get the most benefit from it (easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!)

    2. Energy Conductor
    FACT: Shungite has a unique property of being able to conduct energy… as I demo for you here in the below video:
    Demonstrating Energy Conduction

    3. EMF Shield
    Another claim is that this stone can neutralize the negative effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

    I’ve done some testing and data collection of my own as well as researched what other reliable sources have come up with and…sorry to say …there just isn’t anything (yet) to back this up. I’ve experimented with my own electronics and testing devices to see if I’ve noted anything, but I haven’t been able to come up with any data as of yet.

    However, carbon is known for having diamagnetic shielding proprieties (basically this just means it reverses magnetic fields and creates an energy shield). I haven’t been able to gather data on this specifically with this stone. Hopefully, some evidence about its ability to do this will be on its way to us soon.
    General Shungite Healing Properties
    In working with shungite over the last few years & in hearing from our student body in the Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Course, I’ve compiled a list of general shungite properties:

    • aligned with the Earth Star Chakra and Root Chakra
    • very grounding
    • cleansing
    • purifying
    • protective
    • boosts the immune system
    • improves general overall health & vitality
    • transmutes & shields from negativity

    Fullerenes?
    For quite some time this stone was thought to be the only natural source for fullerenes (carbon nanotubes & spheres with very unique properties) but recent studies have disproved this too. Geez!

    Despite that, it’s still obviously a powerful stone to work with.

    BEWARE: “Shungite” used to mean that the rock was 98% pure carbon. But recently sellers have taken to applying the name willy-nilly to any rock that has some shungite included.  Not coolio! So, be sure to ask the seller about the purity of their shungite. If they’re not sure, better move on to someone else so that you’re more likely to get the higher quality.
