Summer Solstice Manifestation Ritual with Crystals

Hibiscus Moon ceremony, Videos 1 Comment

I’m so happy that you’re here to join me for our Summer Solstice Manifestation Ritual with Crystals!

Those of you that are on my newsletter list, you got a list of supplies to bring and things that will make this a better and more luscious experience for you. If you don’t have those supplies, that’s okay. I’m going to walk you through the whole thing, and we’re going to have fun anyway. 🙂

Ritual Supplies
Here are some supplies you want to have on hand:

  • Paper and pencil, or your favorite device to type some notes on, I like paper and pencil, I’m old school.
  • Your crystal of choice, and I’ll go over the different crystals below.  There’s no wrong, or right here, there’s just certain ones that I prefer, because they have a really good vibrational frequency to amplify the work that we do during a Summer Solstice Manifestation Ritual.
  • Citrus essential oil is great to have on hand.  The two that I show in the video are Citrus Bliss by doTERRA and Lemon essential oil. Whatever brand you choose to use, make sure it’s high quality organic, or therapeutic grade.
  • If you have a candle nearby, go ahead and light a candle, I’ll do the rest.  You don’t have to do this ritual now, you can just jot down notes if you want to and use it to prepare yourself to do this ritual later on again, or you can do it on the summer solstice itself.

This year the summer solstice is on Thursday, June 21. It moves from day to day, because it is based on when the sun reaches its northernmost point from the equator.   Those of you in the southern hemisphere, you’re doing a solstice as well, but it’s going to be the Winter Solstice. In the northern hemisphere, it’s going to be at 6:07 AM, but you don’t have to be up at 6:07 AM your time to experience the energies of the Summer Solstice.

It’s strongest on the 21st, but the energies, the cosmic energies actually work for three days. The day before, the day of, and the day after, so any of those three days are ideal. This is a good time to prep and get your manifestation ducks in a row if you will 😉 We can do this ritual together now, or as I said, just jot down the notes, and you can do it when it’s convenient for you.
The natural rhythms of the earth and auspicious days, the Summer Solstice, in our cosmic cycle are beautiful times to plant seeds, to cultivate, or deepen and renew any manifestation you’ve already begun.
Perhaps you started planting the seeds at Spring Equinox, many of us do that because that’s a time that is representative of planting seeds…a time when eggs are laid.  It’s a time of manifestation, it’s a time of fertility, of growth, of new beginnings. Then when the Summer Solstice rolls around, as it’s coming up on us now in the northern hemisphere (again, southern hemisphere, you’re experiencing Winter Solstice, so if you’re here from the southern hemisphere, just pack this information away for you for six months from now).
What is the Summer Solstice?
During the Summer Solstice, we usher in a time to develop and grow those intentions, those metaphorical seeds that we planted at Spring Equinox. The reason we have this is due to the earth tilt on its axis. We’re slightly tilted 23 1/2° on our axis, so at certain times of the year we are tilted towards the sun, and as we orbit the sun, sometimes the hemisphere that you’re on is either tilted away or towards the sun.
The Summer Solstice is the day where we get the longest amount, the most amount of sunlight during the whole year, so it’s the longest day and the shortest night.
The sun is also higher in the sky throughout the day, if you’ll notice your shadow is shorter, and its rays are striking earth at a more direct angle, rather than coming in at a lower angle, the sun is more direct.

That causes more efficient warming, and hence we get our summertime and it’s hotter.  Summer is a time of development, growth, and lush abundance. We’re beginning to be able to reap those rewards. The first harvest begins, and I’m speaking not just from a farmers point of view, I’m speaking from a metaphorical point of view.

From those metaphorical seeds that you planted in the Spring, it’s a time of harvesting those manifestations you set in place, and it’s a time of manifestation energy.
Summer Solstice Crystals
So let’s go over those crystals that I love using for Summer Solstice. Remember, there’s no right or wrong, perhaps you have different ones?  If you want to put them in the comments below, I’d love to hear about it.

I’m very intentional in choosing my crystals and stones. I have most of mine in a crystal grid right now, but I brought out some other ones.

I’ve intentionally chosen specific stones, because of their specific light frequency, and their specific energetic vibrational frequency. These are the crystals that help align us with the correct energies for the solstice time, for all the things that I just discussed. This will make us a vibrational match to the cosmic energies that are manifesting right now, thereby allowing our manifestations to materialize with less resistance if any at all!

  • Pyrite:  whether it’s natural cubed, it doesn’t matter if it’s got the cube or not, it’s nice if it does, that’s the sacred geometry expressing itself very easily, but if it’s just a pyrite solar disk, or if it’s a mass that’s fine.
  • Sunstone:  tumbled sunstone works great.
  • Citrine:   I’m leaning towards only working with 100% natural citrine. I have found that most of the tumbled citrine out there, in fact, all of it really, is baked amethyst. I’m not vibing with the tumbled citrine any longer, our cosmic energies have changed quite dramatically. I talked about this last week, and I’m feeling like the natural Congo citrine is the one to work with if you’re going to be working with citrine. I almost feel like the baked amethyst now, because things have changed, is, I hate to put it this way, is a waste of time. All my Congo citrine’s in a grid right now.
  • Amber or Copal:  very powerful for the energies we’re working with.
  • Tigers eye:  a great one for this time of year.
  • Bumblebee Jasper:  in the video, you’ll see I’m wearing my Bumblebee Jasper ring.
  • Sulfur:  I got mine from Sicily, from Mount Etna region. Sulfur’s often found near volcanic areas, it’s also found in Durango, Mexico.

Once a year, right around this time I do my Summer Solstice Meditation e-kit, where I go over specific herbs and essential oils, and that’s all included in my Summer Solstice Glitter bundle. There is a meditation in there, a video meditation, MP3, a whole ritual, plus a bunch of other goodies, all bundled up along with the Summer Solstice Glitter bundle.

This kit allows you to take your crystal practice to the next level. Grab all my digitally kits, and my info products, a lot of them have been retired. I don’t sell them anywhere on my site, all in this one bundle for one crazy low price and it’s worth over $500, packed with the most powerful crystal and manifestation tools that I’ve come up with. It’s only $97, that includes my popular Attract Abundance and Prosperity Crystal e-kit, which all by itself is $97. Again,  It’s not available on my website, the only way to get access to this, is to be getting my newsletter, which you’ll start getting immediately. You can join my newsletter list by clicking this link.
Summer Solstice Ritual

  • As we jump into the ritual, the first thing we want to do is create sacred space.  Relax, take a few deep inhales and exhales. On your next inhale, take the deepest inhale you’ve taken all day. Then one more nice deep inhale.
  • If you’ve got that citrus essential oil, you want to either do a nice sniff or be diffusing it right now. Alternatively, you can light a candle, or you can take this whole ritual outdoors. That is a really great way to get yourself immediately into sacred space.  You can do other things to energetically clear the space you’re going to be using. Sound acoustics are highly effective for creating sacred space. Like a crystal singing bowl.
  • Next step is to set your intentions for this ritual with a list. That’s what the pen and paper are for. Since this is a time of reaping the rewards, getting things in alignment for that first harvest, for the first harvest that’s coming up now (that’s what happens right after summer solstice). It’s a time of development, a time of really lush abundance and growth.  It’s good to focus on your intentions in those areas. This will allow things to materialize with more ease.   Is it time to grow your savings account? Is it a time to grow your business? Maybe increase the number of friends you have, or maybe it’s a time to grow and develop your education, or something you’re studying right now, or learning to do some self-development?
  • I find it best to not focus on too many things. One thing, or at the most three things at a time.  Write your one, two, or three manifestation intentions down on that piece of paper so you can refer to it.

    4.  Alongside your manifestation intention, be sure you include a timeline.  You want it to come into fruition by the next lunar cycle, by the next new moon, or maybe in the next three months, or six months, or maybe a year, but be clear and precise and specific.

    At the same time, you want to keep it about you.  I always like to give just a gentle reminder that we’re not working on anybody else, we’re not manipulating other people’s personal will.  That’s something that I never recommend.  It’s just about you.

    5.  Choose the crystal you’re going to work with and we’re going to get focused on that.  I’m going to work with my large natural citrine from Brazil (because all of my congo citrines are in a crystal grid).  First, hold the special crystal, or maybe it’s more than one crystal that you’re going to work with today.
    You’re going to be using that crystal in this ritual, and if you’re able to, if it’s too large like the citrine I’m holding in the video, you can just hold your hands upon it, or you can hold the crystal, if it’s small enough, maybe it’s a tumbled sunstone, in your receiving hand, your left hand.  Then you’re just going to gently focus on the natural rhythm of your breath. Allow yourself to just breathe more deeply, allowing yourself to entrain with the vibrational frequency of that crystal, and focusing on the natural rhythm of your breath.

    Allowing yourself to begin to breathe more deeply now, filling your lungs all the way to the bottom, taking the deepest breath you can take. Squeeze all the air out of your lungs on your exhale. Squeeze it down to the last bit of air out. Notice how your body responds to that. Do it a few more times. As the crystal entrains your electromagnetic field and aligns your energy with its own energy.

    Now glancing over at your list, you’re going to visualize each item you placed on that list with great clarity.

    Think of every detail, how things would look when that manifests, what you’ll be wearing, sounds you might hear, scents you might notice, every detail. Most importantly, focus on your feelings, your emotion, that’s the energy there. Your feelings and your senses. Feel the joy, the sense of accomplishment, the pride, the peace.

    Focus on what that might feel like when that intention comes to fruition. Do the same for your next two intentions, if you have more than one. As this energy from the crystal helps to align your manifestations. Now put your verbal energy into this, and declare it to the universe as done. While still holding your crystal, and loud with energy, you’re going to say … And so it is!

    Now just stay in place with your crystal in place and in the video I add acoustic vibration from my crystal bowl to seal the deal. Sound acoustics, very powerful. Deep inhale, exhale, and you can place your crystal down, and the ritual is complete.

    Pretty powerful stuff, right?  How do you feel?  Please share in the comments below and tell me what crystal (or crystals) you connected with during the manifestation ritual. 

    Thank you all who’ve joined me!  Have a wonderful Summer Solstice.

    Crystal Blessings,

    Crystals for Autumn Equinox

    Hibiscus Moon astronomy, gratefullness, Mother Earth 14 Comments

    I REALLY LOVE this time of year! But I think I say that every time the seasons change. I get such a charge from the seasonal cycles.

    The Autumn Equinox (or Spring Equinox for those in the Southern Hemi) is now upon us and for the purposes of this blog post I’m going to stick to the Autumn aspects, but if you’re from Down Under or just plain interested, you can read my classic blog post on Spring Equinox here.
    Some Science, Of Course!
    So, before I get to the crystals, a bit o’ science on the Equinox stuffs for a sec. I can’t help myself! This year’s Autumn (or Fall) Equinox lands on Friday, September 22.

    There are 2 equinoxes each year; in September and March. Because of the tilt of our planet on our axis, we’re usually getting more sun on one hemisphere than on the other, but there are 2 times/year (Spring and Autumn Equinox) when we get pretty much equal amounts of sunlight on both hemi’s, so our night and day are of equal length everywhere on Mama Earth. So cool!

    [caption id="attachment_19923" align="aligncenter" width="650"] Image by Przemyslaw “Blueshade” Idzkiewicz.[/caption]
    Autumn Equinox Energies

    Balance Aspect: No matter where you are on planet, the equinoxes are all about balance & harmony, again this is b/c this is when we’re receiving equal amounts of sun & moon energy. Therefore, this is a great time to choose to focus on bringing balance into your life by aligning yourself to these energies at this time of year.

    Preparation Aspect: As we take our annual vortex journey through our Solar System around our local star, the Sun, we flow through varying energies and the energy of Autumn or Fall is our time to do last-minute tweaks to any intentions or our manifestations we’ve had in the works for this entire year… before we go into our “hibernation zone” for the winter.

    Winter is all about rest & cave time. Autumn has always represented harvest time with an eye towards prepping for going into our introspective hibernation time… so in the wintertime, we can focus on resting & renewing without being stressed out about simply surviving. We just had our September Harvest Moon; a time to reap the rewards of our hard work. In fact, the Autumn Equinox is the original time of our US Thanksgiving (giving thanks for the bountiful harvest) before it was changed to its current date for economic reasons.

    You might be thinking to yourself right now…
    “Hey! I’m no farmer and I’m not a squirrel or a bear… none of this applies to me!”
    Yeah, what I’m talking about above is obviously so in nature and certainly applied to how we USED to live even just one hundred years ago… but not so much today. However, keep in mind, all this farmer talk can be applied figuratively to our everyday lives even if you don’t have your own ranch.  😉 If you really pay attention, you’ll note that your energy is leaning this way too. Feel into it. Am I right or am I right?

    For me, this is a time of year to be grateful for all I have, reflect on my goals & check on the yield in all life areas. Are the results bountiful or lackluster? If you need to tweak some things, now’s the time to do it, before we go into winter (rest & reflection time). The energies themselves are balancing out; as we go from an intense time of growth and harvest to a time of preparing for quiet and retreating within.

    Here’s the quick breakdown:

    • Time to reap the final harvest
    • Give thanks
    • Balance
    • Prepare for winter ahead: winter of the spirit, time to rest

    Autumn Equinox Crystals for Balancing Aspects

    • Moonstone – embodies an enlightened female energy; soothing, moon energy, intuition enhancer
    • Sunstone – invites in enlightened male energy; abundance, solar energy, stone of leadership
    • Magnetite – aligns and balances energies + polarities

    No matter where you are on planet, the equinoxes are all about balance and harmony so the stones I’ve listed above are the ones I like to work with at this time of year.  They are the ones that embody the balance between masculine and feminine energies, yin & yang, sun + moon, the 2 polarities. So, I like to use both moonstone and sunstone together to achieve this. The vibrational frequencies of these 2 stones together are PERFECT for reminding us to stay balanced in all aspects of our lives.  Then you can add magnetite to that mix to enhance even further while adding in a bit of grounding too.

    You can also sneak in some Balance Essential Oil from doTERRA there too to further enhance these vibrational frequencies.

    Autumn Equinox Crystals for Introspective/Preparatory Aspects
    If you’d like to, instead (or additionally), focus on reviewing and preparing for the time ahead here are some crystals that incorporate the ideal energies for this:

    • Stilbite – introspection, preparing & inner peace
    • Tiger’s Eye – “the practical stone”, invites in practicality, introspection & discernment
    • Shamanic Dream Stone – this stone is also good for polarity balancing as well as for introspection

    [caption id="attachment_19928" align="aligncenter" width="650"] Shamanic Dream Stone[/caption]
    How to Work with the Energies
    I’ll use these stones at my altar while meditating, within my sacred space or in a crystal grid to honor these energies.

    Here are some ideas for you:

    • Include these stones on your altar or in your sacred space
    • Create an Autumn Equinox crystal grid
    • Do a crystal meditation
    • Drink a gem elixir tea
    • Indulge in an Autumn Equinox crystal bath
    • Bring your chakras into balance with a Full Chakra Balance session. I recommend doing a session like this 4 times a year; at each equinox and solstice for good energetic hygiene. You can do this yourself or dive deep for a real treat and have one done by a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer.

    I hope you’re able to carve out some time to celebrate and prepare.  If you have your own ritual for calling in balance or working with a combo of crystals in your own sacred way to align with the Autumn Equinox energies please share in the comments below.  I always love to hear your ideas ❤

    Happy Harvest and Many Crystal Blessings!

    Detailed Manifestation Ritual for Summer Solstice in 7 Steps

    Hibiscus Moon ceremony 16 Comments

    The natural rhythms of the earth & auspicious days in the cosmic cycle are excellent times to cultivate new or deepen & renew our manifestation rituals.

    While our Western World Gregorian calendar places January as the start of our New Year, ancient & Earth-based cultures actually consider the vernal equinox to be the true start; and for good reason.

    The spring equinox represents a time to plant seeds & manifest. It’s a time of fertility, growth, and new beginnings!

    But when the Summer Solstice is upon us, as it is today in the Northern Hemi (Winter solstice for you in the Southern Hemi), we usher in a time to develop & grow those intentions that we planted at the spring equinox.

    Summer is a time of lush abundance & growth. 🙂
    Right now is the time of reaping rewards, harvesting and manifestation energy, Baby!

    And it ain’t just for farmers. 😉
    Crystals for Summer Solstice
    Here are a selection of crystals I like to use to vibe up with the very specific energetic frequencies of Summer Solstice:

    • sunstone
    • pyrite
    • citrine
    • amber
    • tiger’s eye
    • sulfur

    Notice a theme there with the stones?

    Yes, I’m very intentionally choosing stones from a specific light frequency (aka color) to align us with the correct energies for solstice time….like this shiny natural pyrite cube.

    Summer Solstice Ritual
    Here I’ve outlined the steps in my own potent summer solstice manifestation ritual:

  •  Go to your sacred space. Doesn’t need to be elaborate…just any space you can be quiet in, that is special to you & allows you to focus on the task at hand; surround yourself with crystals, summer flowers, music & diffuse some essential oils. OR you can do this outdoors: perhaps in your backyard or by the ocean or in the mountain air. Infinite possibilities!
  • Energetically clear the space you’ll be using.  You can do this easily with sound acoustics. That’s my favorite way… using a rattle, drum, crystal singing bowl or any musical instrument which calls attention to the beginning (and later, the ending) of your ritual. You can also sing or chant to do this.
  • Set your intentions for this ritual with a list. Since this is a time of development, growth & lush abundance, I try to set intentions related to that.
    • Is it time to grow your savings account? Grow your business? Increase the number of friends you have or a time to develop your education & learning or do some self-development? 
    • Write your 3 manifestation intentions down on a small piece of paper so you can refer to it. Be sure to include a specific timeline & be as clear and precise as you can but keep it about YOU.
    • (A gentle reminder: No manipulation of other people’s personal will as that’s something I never recommend).
  • Get Focused. First hold the special crystals you’ll be using for this ritual in your hands & then focus on the natural rhythm of your breath. Allow yourself to begin to breathe more deeply, filling your lungs all the way to the bottom taking the deepest breaths you’ve taken in a while & then squeezing all the air out of your lungs. Notice how your body responds.
  • Visualize each item on your list very clearly. Notice every detail. Imagine it happening through your feelings & senses. Do the same for your next 2 intentions.
  • Put your verbal energy into it & declare it to the Universe. While still holding your crystal(s) out loud and with energy say,  “And so it is!”…or some variation; Aho! Amen! So mote it be! …you get the picture.
  • End with sound acoustic vibration to seal the deal.  Again using your preferred method: rattle, drum, crystal singing bowl, etc.
  • Want more?

    You can take all week to still work with the energies of the Summer Solstice as we’ll still be in the vibration & energies for a few more days & you can take that time to go deeper.

    Once a year at Summer Solstice, I offer my Summer Solstice Meditation eKit where I go over specific herbs & essential oils you can use to further amplify the power of your crystals… along with a guided video meditation & detailed summer solstice ritual and a bunch of other goodies all bundled up in my Summer Solstice Glitter Bundle!

    Happy Sparkly Summer Solstice to you!

    Crystals for Spring (or Autumn) Equinox

    Hibiscus Moon astronomy, ceremony, Crystal Grids, Crystals, meditation, spirituality 13 Comments

    Spring equinox is coming up!! Do you know what crystals to use with this event?

    No, I don’t have a religion or dogma that I subscribe to but I’ve said it before, I really feel a strong pull towards following the cosmic cycles. Back to nature, ya know? Back to what the ancients intuitively did & many still do. There’s a reason it worked so well for so long.

    When it comes to feeling what resonates with my soul, I go with natural cycles & have this aversion to our modern Gregorian calendar. Oh yeah, its all fine & good for day to day getting shiz done but when it comes to health, soul nourishment + spiritual balance, the natural cosmic cycles ring my bell.

    So before I get to the crystals, let’s tawk equinox stuffs for a sec.

    The  Spring Equinox (or Autumn Equinox for those in the Southern Hemisphere) is upon us (Wednesday, March 20, 2013).
    2 Cosmic Cycles Toys:

    • Here’s a great site that explains all about the upcoming equinox.
    • How about an awesome FREE app that keeps track of the Sun & Moon, Equinoxes, Solstices + more (iPhone + iPad only)?

    If you live on the Northern Hemisphere, the Spring Equinox represents renewal time. We just had our introspective hibernation time & its time to emerge & start the growth cycle again. I view this time as the NEW beginning. My new year! Its a time to set goals & plan them out. What am I going to do & how am I going to do it? This is so exciting & so much FUN for me!!! Is it b/c I’m a Capricorn? Nah, I think if you have the right perspective on it, this can be fun no matter what sign  you are. 😉
    Spring Equinox Crystals for Growth + Goal-Setting + Planning
    The crystals that embody ideal energies for growth + planning for me are:

    • green aventurine
    • dendritic agate
    • chrysoprase

    I will usually set them out as I fill out planning sheets, work with my biz coach, plan vacations with my hub-bub, Frankie, etc. This is for BIG PLANS & GOALS…for the whole year. If I need mediation time to figure things out then I will mediate & work with 1 of these stones.

    [caption id="attachment_8685" align="aligncenter" width="570"] Luscious green aventurine tumblies.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_9283" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Dendritic agate aka tree agate[/caption]

    [caption id="attachment_9284" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Chrysoprase, photo credit: Ra’ike[/caption]
    Spring Equinox Crystals for Balance
    No matter where you are on Mother Earth, the equinoxes are all about balance & harmony b/c this a time that we receive equal amounts of sun & moon energy. EVERYWHERE on the planet.

    So 2 more crystals I like to use are:

    • moonstone
    • sunstone
    [caption id="attachment_9285" align="aligncenter" width="614"] Rainbow moonstone…YUMMY, no?[/caption] [caption id="attachment_2600" align="aligncenter" width="580"] Sunstone aka oligoclase. Photo by Ra’ike[/caption]

    I’ll use these stones on my altar within my sacred space or in a crystal grid to honor these energies.

    [caption id="attachment_653" align="aligncenter" width="422"] My sacred space & altar[/caption]

    I REALLY LOVE this time of year!

    These stones…for me…embody balance between masculine & feminine energies, ying & yang, sun & moon, 2 polarities. The vibrational frequencies of these stones are PERFECT for reminding us to stay balanced in all aspects of our lives.

    Welcome Spring (or happy Harvest if you’re below the equator!)
    Super Sparkles to you today!!!

     

     

    P.S. Not quite sure how to “work with” & meditate with your stones for clarity, Lima Bean? My Get to Know Your Crystals eKit can get you all set on that path for the cost of 2 coffees. 🙂 You can check that out here.
