Why Your Crystals 🔮 May Not Be Working 🤔

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing 21 Comments

One thing I’d like to clarify before we dive into anything else is that we should not rely on crystals (ALL ON THEIR OWN) for a specific cure. People often come to me with a medical diagnosis they’ve received, and they want to know which crystal is good for healing/curing that particular medical issue. When it comes to a medical diagnosis, crystals are fantastic for supporting a sound holistic health plan overseen by a medical professional

Also, when I say “holistic,” to most people, that means taking into account all the different aspects that come into play with healing. Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually.  Not just your body but your mind and your spirit as well, so you’re not just addressing the physical symptoms. I believe when it comes to healing this is how everyone should approach the process and that includes medical professionals.



Crystals are PART of a sound holistic health plan
Crystals allow us to tap into the vibrational frequencies or healing frequencies that we might be seeking more efficiently. Not to say that you can’t accomplish this without crystals, it most certainly can be done. However, crystals are here to assist us as a tool, allowing us to do the required work using less energy. In the world of physics, the definition of a tool is something that allows you to do the work using less energy.

For example, If you have a lawnmower, that’s a tool that will enable you to cut the grass using a lot less energy than going out there with a pair of scissors and cutting each blade of grass individually. So yes, as part of sound holistic healing practice, crystals can be a huge help. However, it could also be that your approach to working with the crystal is what’s blocking your desired outcome.
The Science Supporting The Metaphysical 🔬
One thing I always strive to do here on this blog is connected metaphysics with the science that supports it. So allow me to dive into the double-slit experiment that took place over 100 years ago. This experiment showed us that light and matter display characteristics of being both waves and particles, but more importantly, it taught us the nature of quantum mechanics.

This experiment also brought to light what would be known as “The Observer Effect” or the “Hawthorne Effect.” In essence, we learned that whatever the observer believed would happen was naturally going to impact the outcome. Meaning there is actual evidence to support the idea that our consciousness or our beliefs influence how our reality is shaped.

If you feel your crystal isn’t working It could mean it’s the wrong time for you to be working with that particular stone. So I would encourage you to try working with different crystal pieces of the same type. If it’s an amethyst, you’re working with experiment with other amethysts types

The crystal itself may also need to be vibrationally recalibrated. We all need to be unplugged some of the time, and the same can often happen with your crystal. It requires a re-tuning, and the easiest way to do so is through sound acoustics. The vibrations psychically travel through the object, yourself, and the crystal lattice recalibrating the dominant oscillatory rate of the crystal.

Also, remember that it’s always possible for a specific crystal to never be a proper vibrational match for you. If find that’s the case consider regifting it back to the earth or even regifting it to someone else.
Three things you can do to get your crystal working again
#1 – Ease into working with the stone

I see people try and force a specific stone into their life all the time. They pick up something new and want to dive into it immediately. I would recommend taking a slower approach when it comes to incorporating this specific stone into your life.

  • Rather than wearing it all day as a piece of jewelry try meditating with the stone for 4-5 minutes instead.
  • In addition to meditation, you could also consider keeping it with you when you sleep. Try putting it in your pillowcase, so it’s safe, and it doesn’t roll off the bed and then if you’re sleeping with it then you’re with it for about half the day instead of an entire day.
  • Finally, try working with the stone every other day instead of every day.

#2 – Anoint the stone

Something else to consider before wearing the stone is anointing it. Most likely through a small ceremony or even a little prayer. This creates a vibrational bond between you and the crystal. Creating that bond allows you to make the stone yours. I would also recommend anointing your stone after you’ve already completed step one. Do this little ritual with a little bit of essential oil on the tip of your finger and just put it on the stone, and maybe say a little prayer or a little affirmation in how you would like to work with the crystal.

Perhaps you can take it into your sacred space. If you need ideas on creating a sacred space, I have a free eKit on creating a sacred space you can check out which includes a meditation mp3.

Start by taking a tiny little drop of essential oil and putting it on the crystal. If you prefer something like Florida Water or holy water that’s acceptable too. Before doing so, however, I would check the stone’s Mohs hardness. We want to make sure that the stone has a Mohs hardness of five or higher. Otherwise, water can slightly damage the crystal if you’re not careful. I like to be overly cautious in this area. Finally, rub the oil on the stone while stating a favorite prayer or an affirmation. You can also leave it in your sacred space for seven days or so. This process can help create a very strong bond between you and that crystal.

#3 – Retune your crystal

The third thing you can do is retune your crystal. Here we would use something like a crystal singing bowl or even a tuning fork. You can also place your stone in front of a speaker and turn the music up loud.  What this does is create sound acoustics with a high amplitude, and that high amplitude is going to trump the oscillatory frequency of the crystal. It will recalibrate it down to the crystal lattice, or down to the molecules.

I hope you try these three steps you can take to get your crystal working again! If nothing on this list works for you, it might be that your time with this particular stone is up. WHICH IS OK I PROMISE! If it truly is time to part with your crystal then consider gifting it to someone else or even regifting it back to Mama Earth.           

Let me know in the comments if you’ve used any of these steps to reconnect with your crystals! I’d also love to hear if you have a specific stone that doesn’t work for you? Or maybe a one that you feel has never worked for you?

Are Crystals 💎 Too Trendy? 📈 Is That Good or Bad?

Hibiscus Moon Everyday/Personal Stuffs 5 Comments

Are crystals trendy? Well…trendy is defined as “Very fashionable or up to date in style or influence.” Style and influence aren’t necessarily what we’re looking for concerning our crystals though is it? However, we can see that there is a very clear crystal trend forming. They’re in every home goods store you can think of I’ve seen uninspiring displays of healing bracelets in Target and even Walmart.

Even prominent YouTubers have started hopping on the crystal bandwagon lately. Beyond social media, you’ll even find companies like Goop (Gwyneth Paltrow’s company) displaying entire crystal sections. Robert Redford’s company Sundance also had a crystal gift set for a Mother’s Day promotion they were doing. So circling back to the overarching question is this good or bad? What kind of energy does this bring to the table? Also, we have to consider … because so many companies and influencers are inserting themselves into this space, we can expect an impact on the supply and demand of individual crystals.

 
The Positives of The Crystal Trend 📈
There are indeed positives that this type of trend can bring. For example, it’s allowing the world of crystal healing to be more acceptable in the general publics eyes. I’m sure many of you have experienced people having a relatively closed mind on the subject of crystal healing in the past. I’ve had some students share stories about their families not quite understanding or accepting the inclusion of crystals in someone’s daily lifestyle. 

So yes some people may be coming to crystals because of their favorite influencer or celebrity. However, they’re still connecting with a higher form of self regardless. Which is a beautiful thing, because crystals are subconscious influencers, and they help us create unity within our consciousness. Now that all being said crystals are still more impactful when there is an intention behind using them. You’re going to get the most significant result; you’re going to be squeezing out every bit of potential from those crystals when your intention is in alignment with the vibrational frequency of the crystals that you’re working with.

Perhaps another positive is this becoming a conversation starter for people. As a result of the emerging crystal trend, people naturally become more curious. They’re asking themselves, “do these things really work?” I see that exact question all the time on my YouTube videos, and from there they come over to my website and read a little bit more about it. Would this have happened otherwise if crystals weren’t such a trend at the moment?
The Science Behind Crystals 🔬
Now, keep in mind, I’m barely going to scratch the surface here. I go into much more detail on this subject in my Certified Crystal Healer Course. Our body has a dominant or average vibrational frequency. I say average because every one of our organs has a different vibrational frequency, so all added up and taken together. We have an average vibrational frequency, but it’s not very stable. The reason for this is we are not crystalline. We might be headed towards that in an evolutionary sense, but we are not predominantly crystalline.

Our bodies average vibrational frequency can also fluctuate as a result of everyday stress. Now, it’s important to realize that our entire universe, or the multiverse, is made up of pure energy and vibration. Everything in it, everything you can see, everything you cannot see, everything that science can measure, everything science cannot measure. Even your thoughts and emotions are made of pure energy and vibration. To help illustrate this allow me to reference a very popular formula created by the great Einstien. E=mc^2, the E stands for energy, M stands for matter, or mass, C squared is the speed of light. However, don’t get hung up just yet on what I refer to as “mathematical voodoo.” The point I want to illustrate here is that energy equals mass and vice versa.

Crystals and Their Unique Vibrational Frequency 🔮
So crystals are mass (or matter) which equals energy. What makes them different though compared to every other thing in the universe, is they have an exceptional kind of energy. Crystals, like the fluorite sphere I’m so fond are composed of a very special kind of energy. It is important to note however that a crystal has vibrations just like everything else does.  The more evolved the consciousness or the energetic amplitude of the vibrational frequency of a certain being or object, the more influential it is. Which means the more it will entrain the energy around it.

As I said earlier different forms of matter and energy vibrate at different vibrational frequencies. The different organs in our body have different vibrational frequencies. These different frequencies depend on lots of different variables. Now, a crystal has a very specific molecular composition. Those molecules establish the size of the crystal, the thickness of the crystal, and the color of the crystal.  When crystals are created specifically for use within a laboratory to be used for various electronics, it’s important to take into account the crystals specific vibrational frequency. So crystals are highly influential due to their highly ordered atomic structure.

Crystals are also very different from us because of the highly structured state they’re in. Even our universe is based on energetic tetrahedrons. Did you know that? Video game programmers or creators center their video game models on tetrahedrons.  The molecules of a crystal are arranged in a fixed repeating geometric pattern. Meaning they’re geometrically perfect and because of that they have the lowest possible state of disorganization. Crystals easily maintain their dominant vibrational frequency, unlike us. So the crystals have the unique ability to influence the energies around them in a very beneficial way.

Let me know in the comments below if you find the crystal trend to be negative or positive. Do you think it’s good to be able to find crystals in department stores? Or bad?  I would also love to hear your thoughts on the science behind crystals and their vibrational frequencies! 😄

Can You Overcharge your Crystals in the Sun?

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness, Crystals 27 Comments

If you’ve been working with crystals for any length of time you’ve probably heard about the recommendation to “charge” your crystals in the sun over & over again.
Can You Overcharge your Crystals in the Sun?

Submitted Question:
“I’ve heard that leaving crystals out in the sun can overcharge them & cause some kind of negative effect.  Hibiscus Moon how do you feel about that?  And how did you deal w/ that for your crystal in your garden fountain?”

This person was referring to this fountain in my garden. At the top of the fountain where the water rushes out I keep a large clear crystal quartz point.

That crystal is there all the time.

I intentionally  do that so that the water is picking up the vibrational frequencies from the clear quartz & pouring them into the fountain.

The birds (all wildlife actually!) absolutely love that fountain since I put that clear quartz in there.

And, I know it’s because the water is getting that specific vibrational frequency as it rushes by the crystal.

The negative ions there must be better than any other bird bath in the neighborhood! I guarantee you~! A little while ago I explained the positive benefits of negative ions in this post over here.
Let’s get the Safety Hazard Out of the Way First!
Let it be known that putting crystals out in the sun can be a HUGE HAZARD b/c a crystal placed in just the right angle to the sun can act as a focus-er & magnifier, condensing the light rays into 1 spot…resulting in a concentration of heat that can reach incredibly high temperatures! If all the conditions are right; sun’s rays are hot enough, the environment is dry & the focal strength of the crystal is just right…you’re gonna end up with a blaze!

Seems the spheres are the usual culprits…

Yikes!! I live in a humid environment & I’ve checked to make sure that none of the refracted light filtering through the crystal ends up on anything that could possibly melt or be flammable.
Overcharging from the Sun?
Fire hazard issues aside…overcharging? I don’t feel that can happen.

I don’t feel that’s an issue.

Lots of Mama Earth’s crystals are exposed to the sun. 

Yes some are underground & need to be mined out, while some are out in the open. I don’t feel that there is any negative effects from the energy of that.

I also have a large rose quartz at my front entrance so that when people come into our home they are greeted with the rose quartz energy of compassion and love. It’s out in the sun all the time with no harmful effects at all.

Everybody absolutely loves this stone. ♥

Physical Effects of Charging Crystals in the Sun:

  • If the crystal structure isn’t very strong; hence the crystal’s molecular bonds aren’t very strong, exposure to the Sun can make the crystal more brittle. In GEO-GEEK-SPEAK we call that “friable”.
  • Sometimes, depending on how the crystal’s pigment got there, if it’s deeply pigmented, exposure to the Sun can make the color fade: I have a blog post all about that & why that happens.
  • Again…the whole fire hazard issue addressed above

Other than the physical effects, I feel there is nothing wrong with this practice.

I suppose the main reason I feel there can be no harm in it is that I don’t really subscribe to the whole notion of “charging up” a crystal in the 1st place. I’ve discussed my take on that before here.

So, what’s your experience w/ keeping crystals outside?  I would love to hear your stories so please share it with our Crystal Hottie Community in the comments below!

Can Crystal Color Determine it’s Meaning? & Who made up the BUNK that crystal energy can be based on color!?

Hibiscus Moon chakras, Crystal Healing, Crystals, science 15 Comments

This question came in & I think it is so funny how this is worded:

Who made up the BUNK that crystal energy can be based on color?

Ha! Here’s the vid…

Yeah! So where’d this bunk come from?
All right, so I don’t know that it’s necessarily a “who made it up” type a’ thing.

Actually, this whole concept of color & crystals aligning with different energy centers throughout our bodies & resonating with different organs & glands has been around for thousands & thousands of years & is a common thread through many different cultures. It goes back to ancient teachings.

And it’s actually something that we can scientifically back up & even measure in some instances (I get much deeper into that in my Certified Crystal Healer Course).

Rather than someone “making it up” I feel it’s actually a case of many different cultures tapping in at the same time to a particular teaching or Universal Knowing…a collective tapping in of collective consciousness (or unconsciousness) & all coming up with the idea at the same time. This has been known to happen with scientists , inventors, discoverers, etc.; actually where 2 different scientists in different parts of the world will all of a sudden make identical discoveries…like this vibrational wave comes through and then they will both tap into the same discovery or invention at the same time! Then there’ll be these accusations flying around that someone stole it from someone else. But back in the days when the only way to share information was via a letter on a ship, that was most likely not the case at all, but instead, that they tapped in vibrationally at the same time to the same collective idea. Pretty cool, right? (Biologist, Rupert Sheldrake has based his theory of the Morphogenic Field on this concept.)

…or perhaps “others” brought that knowledge here to Earth at one time. (If you’re interested in that look into the teachings of  Zecharia Sitchin)
Back to the Crystal Bunk
So, about different crystals & mineral energy being based on their color: for instance, the teachings that say all blue crystals are for gentle calming, all pink crystals are for love, etc.

I don’t feel that is always 100% the way that it goes every single time.

I feel that not every single green-hued crystal is going to exude the same exact sort of energy. However, due to specific light frequencies of the green wavelength many of your green crystals will be aligned to heart chakra energy to prosperity, to health, to vitality. Not every single green crystal (due to many other variables), but many will generally fall into those general categories.

In addition,  keep in mind that not every single person is going to get the same “feeling” from an emerald due to individual varying vibrational frequencies of the person.

See, I feel that around 85% of the people will tap into the same vibrational frequency, but I’ve said it time & time again we all have a different vibrational frequency slightly different on average to each other. That’s going to not allow everybody to neatly fit into “the rigid box” of everyone picking up the same exact energy from a green emerald in the same way. Get what I mean?
What is Crystal Color?
In order answer this question we need to understand what color is.

Color is a visual representation what we are able to visually perceive of electro-magnetic frequency (light). We cannot see all light on the electro-magnetic spectrum. We’re only able to see a very narrow band on that spectrum. And we call that band visible light.

Now, I feel that some people can see a little bit more into the infrared, some people can see a little bit more into ultraviolet & beyond (we know some animals can do this, crystals pick up others parts of the spectrum)…the see’ers! But most of us can see the visible light band & that’s it.

So, there’s all of this stuff over here outside the band that are “colors” that we can’t see.

So as I said, when you see green that is a very specific light frequency. So it’s a very specific wavelength of energy that you are able to see, but it doesn’t just manifest as visible light. It has different octaves that repeat themselves & can be felt & represented in different ways.

What you’re seeing and we talk about “color” is a very specific vibrational frequency.

Now, here’s the kicker!

So, that crystal that looks “green” to you isn’t actually green. In fact, it’s every other color BUT green. What I mean is that it looks green to you b/c it’s absorbing every other light frequency except the green one & reflecting the green. It’s bouncing off the green wavelength.

So, that’s the specific frequency that it’s bouncing off! It’s the green frequency that if you’re able to pick up or perceive in whatever way you tend to do that, with your eyes, with your hands…or you enter the electromagnetic field of that crystal & that’s the energy you’re going to interact with: green energy, Baby!

It makes sense that other stones that are within the same color vicinity will have similar but slightly different energies.

And there you go…hope that explains in a general, but scientific way where this bunk comes from. 😉

Do you feel that all crystals of a color all affect us in the same way? Do you have experiences or stories to share on this topic? Please post in the comments below!
