Transcript of the video:
First, I want to tell you about a couple of things.
A lot of you ask me about crystal skulls.
We actually get pretty in-depth into that in my Advanced Crystal Master Course. A magazine that I subscribe to Rock & Gem, in its August 2014 issue, had a really good article on crystal skulls called Art or Artifacts.

They tried to keep it relatively based in fact so that you can get a good overview as far as what’s what with the crystal skulls (giving you the facts) & then you can make up your mind from there. So, I thought that was a good article & I wanted to bring that up and tell you about that.

Then there’s the gem shows! The Tucson Gem Show is held every year in the end of January-February. There are some great online resources for the Tucson Gem and Mineral Fossil Showcase. They always have different things that are happening.

Sometimes the major places, the meeting spots move from spot to spot, but generally around all of Tucson; there are Gem Shows happening all over the place. And if you go to my YouTube Channel I have many years-worth of my escapades in Tucson.
Crystal Cohort Meet up!
 

This year, I was really looking forward to having a meet up with my Hibiscus Moon Crystalline Cohorts from my courses and really looking forward to meeting many of them in real life and hooking up in the “crystal-meca” of Tucson! About 25 of us gathered in a suite overlooking the gorgeous Tucson desert valley.

We had a little crystal show & tell, showing each other what we bought & what we found and our best finds of the year for Tucson 2015. If you go to Tucson Gem & Mineral site they regularly update info on all of the different main shows throughout Tucson. There is always a theme;  every year they have a theme.

In 2014,  I wasn’t really too excited because it was a very broad theme. It was like “silver and gold and gems”. Well…I was like, “isn’t that what we are here for?” They didn’t laser focus on anything for a theme, in my opinion.

The year before it was Fluorite. Now that’s a theme! I like a theme like that. 🙂 You know, really laser focus in.
OMG!! Just found out the 2016 theme!!!: “Shades of Blue – Minerals of the World”
For 2015, they took a kind of broader view, but I liked it. The  2015 theme was Minerals of Western Europe.

They showcased different minerals  specifically from Western Europe. That’s kind of cool. And you can check out the show details with their brand new website that’s Tucson.org. And here’s a visitor’s guide link also for different tips for staying up to date: VisitTucson.org

If you’re not planning on heading out to Tucson for 2016, then you can check out the Gem & Mineral shows and events in your area. Here’s a website called the-vug.com with links for checking out some other great gem shows around the world. If you’re a geo-geek, like me, you know what a vug is. 😉

There they list different shows according to area and state and different things that are coming up. There are a lot. Make sure to not miss any that are coming to your local area b/c THAT is the place to be for a Crystal Hottie in the know!
How I got started working with crystals
If you read my book Crystal Grids, you have a general idea.

You know that at a very young age I was enthralled with this coffee table book that my father had from a museum & it had all of these pages and pages of beautiful photographs of different rough minerals and then faceted gems made from the rough minerals. And I was just riveted to this book. I was always in it, 3-years-old looking at it, and couldn’t believe that these were things that came from Mama Earth because they showed them in a rock matrix. And as I got a little older I started to learn a little bit more about them.

Always fascinated.

Absolutely fascinated.

We started learning about geology in school &…again totally riveted.

When I went to college, I took a lot of geology focused courses. You know, I was in different science majors. And then when I got out of college, well actually when I was in high school, I started dabbling in metaphysics, more than dabbling I got really into it. But I didn’t make the connection of crystals + metaphysics yet.

In fact it all started when I began reading my mother’s copy of this book! I’ve since read it about 6 times & will liklely read it again many more. I’ve got some sort of soul-connection to it:

And as the years went on…I don’t know, I think I was around 28, late-20s or so going to events and classes and things that I went to having to deal with lightworking and metaphysics and things that I was really interested in; just really anything that was “on the fringe” or considered occult (hidden info).

I would either read books or go to classes and events and find out more & more. I started realizing there was a connection with the crystals. I started working with them on my own reading books and doing a lot of introspective work and research on my own.

And I had this science background, because by then I had started teaching Science and my favorite thing was to dive deeply into Geology. But then I started realizing this whole “crystal healing thing” and the more and more I learned about crystal healing, crystal therapy and the more I read about metaphysics, the more I realized there were these common threads and these ways that it could merge together with science and physics specifically.

And I was like:
Wow! I wonder if anybody else is noticing this or understanding this and seeing these correlations?
So, I couldn’t really do anything about that until I discovered YouTube. I discovered YouTube in 2007, and right around then made my first video. And I knew there were other people dabbling in other things, but not really so much into the crystals but I put the videos out there with just my hands showing, not my face because I was still a teacher at the time and I was really afraid to “come out”. (I was a science department chair in what was at the time the largest school district in the US. Teachers doing social media in a big way is not a safe idea no matter what the topic.)

And I started realizing, finding and making friends with other people on the same wavelength and making connections that way. Then…like the world just opened up. I started telling them about everything. I was like “well what about this? And what about crystal grids? And what about…”

It just kind of exploded from there. Those of you that have been with me awhile you know the whole story, watched the whole thing unfold and you know exactly how it happened step-by-step and it’s like I always explain it this way:
It was like the universe was just pulling me along and  really saying “just follow your intuition and I’ll keep opening the doors.”
The business? That all unfolded the same way. I just listened & if it resonated for me, I followed.

Did it feel scary? Hell, yes!

Did I feel ready? No way!!!

But the fear felt exciting too & it felt RIGHT.

And that’s how it has always been for me on this path with the crystals.

And more and more things happen throughout my life that keep reminding me of this…because sometimes I forget to follow, remind my brain to follow my intuition…which comes from my heart. Because when I don’t, that’s when I get into little messes & things. Know what I mean?

When I follow my heart & follow my intuition things always seem to work out. And, go ahead and start before you feel ready.

That’s my message here to you today. I hope you do the same.

Follow your heart, follow your intuition wherever that path may lead.

It can only bring you to good positive things.

The Crystal Healer Interviews

Today, I bring to you a Crystal Healer Reflection from one of our newest Certified Crystal Healers, Jill Bloomer. She is such a sweet & GORGEOUS soul. I hope you thoroughly enjoy reading this post as much as I did! Here’s Jill!!:
Crystal Healer Reflection

On March 19, 2011, late at night, I sat outside on my patio contemplating the question that plagues many people.

“Who am I, what am I doing here?” 

Although nothing was truly “wrong” in my life, I began to feel despondent and depressed as I pondered my purpose on earth.  Yes, I was a good mother, blessed with four incredible children.  Yes, I had a loving marriage and big-time career. Why did I feel like something was missing?

 Frustrated, I leaned my head back on my patio chair, and my eyes fixed upon the biggest, brightest full moon I had ever seen in my life. For reasons unknown at the time, my heart started to pound and tears began to stream down my cheeks.  I reached for my smart phone and googled “why is the moon so big”.   I found the answer; it was called a “super moon”.  The moon was closer to the earth due to its oval shaped orbit than it had been in 20 years.  It was a truly awe-inspiring sight.

One google search about the moon lead to another, and before I knew it I was fully engrossed in reading about Moon Goddesses, Wicca, witchcraft, and a bevy of other topics that I was raised to believe were forbidden and taboo.  It was only a few days until I dedicated myself to a spiritual path centered on finding this mysterious Goddess whom I had never known before, but who intrigued me so deeply.

The next few weeks for me were spent reading articles and watching videos about anything that I could find related to Goddess worship.  I eventually found my way to a you tube channel called phanie12 . In her videos, a faceless woman with a kind and cheerful voice taught me everything I wanted to know about how crystals and gemstones could heal, manifest, and inspire.  I bought my very first crystal (a small citrine point), and when I first held it in my hand, I knew I held something very powerful.

I came to know phanie12 as Hibiscus Moon, and I began visiting her website and reading about her Certified Crystal Healer Course.  Oh what a pipe dream! I could never do anything like that! Or could I?

After much prayer, manifesting, and self-convincing, I finally enrolled in Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy to become a Certified Crystal Healer.  As I am finishing the courses and the prescribed work, I almost cannot believe that my “pipe dream” is a reality.  The answer to the question “why am I here on this earth?” is very clear to me now.

I am here to help others to be healed.

However, this is not the end of my journey by any means.  In order to be a successful healer, I must continue to heal myself- physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I must continue on my path of learning, for this is not a journey with a final destination, but a never-ending path of self-development, discipline, and growth.  Finally, I am on my way!

Thankfullness & Making Dreams Come True

Hibiscus Moon creativity, Everyday/Personal Stuffs, gratefullness, law of attraction 2 Comments

I am remembering, yet again, to be thankful for all the blessings, large & small…even the itty-bitty ones. But really I have sooo sooo much to be grateful for. Yes, things are shifting and changing, sometimes feeling funky, but its a fun ride, isn’t it? I am enjoying it. As scary as it seems sometimes, I have to remind myself to just let go & FLOW.

I was just emaling this to a dear friend today…I just hope I’m riding the waves the “right” way so I can continue to grow & evolve in the right direction. I went to the beach today, just for 10 precious, sacred minutes. I flicked off my sandals & flopped my butt into the sand…just grounding & looking at the lifeguards & having MUCHO RESPECT for them

one of them riding his rusty bicycle up to the lifeguard stand
RESPECT for choosing to work in a blessed paradise as their OFFICE.
I began longing for the days when I used to do that…working jobs out in nature, with gorgeous animals or in the parks. Yeah, scraping nickels to pay the bills & debtors nipping at my heels but I worked in nature & was so connected. I didn’t care about health insurance or any of that yucky mundane boring junk!

Now I work long hours, indoors under fluorescent bulbs with no windows (not a one!) & then work at my laptop all night…

so that I can live my natural life again soon….live the dream. AND I AM THANKFULL FOR THAT SACRED DREAM. A dream coming true. 🙂 

What are you thankful for? What are your dreams coming true?

Crystal Blessings!
