Crystals for Grief

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Originally, I had a blog post planned to talk about this week’s Full Moon…  And then tragedy struck.

As you may know, I live in Las Vegas so this horrific event hit very close to home.

It’s surreal…  The feelings of anxiety, fear, sorrow, grief…  I have friends who were at the concert.  Some have not been heard from yet.

Any time there is a tragedy like this, I’m affected.  This one, obviously, has hit me a bit harder.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been impacted by this tragic event.

So, for Mindset Monday, instead of the planned Full Moon post, this week is about crystals for grief & sorrow.

Crystals for Grief:
Lemurian Quartz
Rose Quartz
Apache Tear

Crystals For Fall Equinox

By | crystal healing | One Comment

The Fall Equinox is a time of reflection, healing and shedding what is no longer serving us.

That means, you’ll need to not only reflect on the good things that have transpired over the last few months but also face the negative energies…. and then release them.

During this Fall Equinox, the Sun is moving into Libra – the sign of balance, harmony & good will.  

As our collective subconscious energy is ascending, you may find yourself more productive and passionate about projects you’ve previously put aside. Embrace the energy of Libra and take time to rest & relax after your bursts of creativity or you may find yourself lazing around on the couch when you *should* be productive.

During this time of Ascending Energy, you will be faced with some of your negative patterns.  It is impossible to move into a higher vibration while carrying the energy of yesterday’s negativity with you.  Instead of coming to a complete stop… Just slow down, acknowledge the lesson in the negative pattern, then move through it.

Historically, Fall is the time of year for harvest, celebrating the fruits of our year-long labor.

This is a time of prosperity and good fortune.   What are you proud of this year?  What seeds did you sow in the Spring that are ready for harvest in the Fall, restoring the balance of your productive energy?

Can you feel the energy: Ascension Energy, New Moon and Fall Equinox

By | crystal healing, New Moon | 279 Comments

Are you feeling all the energies right now?

Coming up this week we have a New Moon on Wednesday the 20th, We have the Fall Equinox on Friday the 22nd and another Ascension energy wave coming on Sat. the 23rd.

What does this all mean for you? Let me break this down for you…

New Moon in Virgo~ Manifesting…. a fresh start, change, turning over a new leaf, let what is no longer serving fall to the way side. Virgo is a helping, healing, and teaching sign. 

Think about these aspects when writing down your manifestation list. What needs to be healed? What do you still need to learn? What practice could you incorparaote to enhance your meditation. a new health regimen, and effective communication?

Fall Equinox~ Slowing down reeping what youv’e sown. This Spring you planted your intentions, during the nourished and tended to your intentions to help them grow.

This Fall is the time for you relish in your manifestations to be grateful, its time to slow down and cherish what you have. Its time to let expectations and harvests that didn’t make it fall to the wayside. Bask in what did grow and thrive. Time to slow down, bring balance, use oil internally and externally, its a time of dryness, harvest your labors, look within at shadows, find balance between activity and rest, between what life has dealt you and what you can control.

Ascension Energy wave~ Gradual expansion, awakening, change, enlightenment…  This is the next wave of a collective awakening in the global consciousness.  Look back how far you’ve come. The last big wave was in 2012.  How far have you come on your spiritual journey since then?

Like a deep sea diver, emerging from the depths, we ascend gradually & slowly.  Practice mindfulness.  Slow down.  Pay attention to how you are feeling.  This is a great time to journal and document the shifts that are taking place in your life.  You may feel excited, anxious or have unexplained nervous energy.  On the other hand, you may need a lot of sleep and quiet time.  Honor your own journey during this time.  You may suddenly find a boring topic fascinating and want to learn all you can about it, you may experience the intense need to travel or go on adventures, or you may start to feel the itch of wanting a career or life change.  These are all normal during these times of shifts and change.  

Crystals for Ascension: 
Spirit Quartz
Herkimar Diamond
AmethystIf you need more support during this time and would like a custom Holistic RX during this time, you can book a private, one-on-one consultation here >>

Setting your New Moon intention + blessing:

Give yourself up to 30 minutes of privacy & solitude.

Light a candle, burn some sage, and relax, creating a space of relaxation.

Write out your intentions for the next month.  What do you want to focus your energy on?  What would you like to have happen?

Read your intentions out loud while having your hands covering your heart chakra.

Then release it to the universe!

The Quiet Power of Meditation

By | crystal healing, Manifesting, Self Care | 800 Comments

Meditation is used to awaken the Crown Chakra, the energy center connecting us to Spirit.

Our body’s need sleep every night, just like our minds need quiet time & some space between all of our thoughts.

Our thoughts are just thoughts based on stories our minds have made up. We need to create a space to separate our true self, our spirit in my belief from our thoughts.

Some added bonuses by creating a meditation  practice:

More clarity,
Connecting with your higher self
Receiving messages
Sleeping better
Better focus.

I’ve created a special meditation to share with you today.

Watch the Meditation

Crystals for meditation: 

Selenite, Amethyst, Celestite &  Spirit Quartz

Mercury Retrograde How You Can Use This Time For Your Highest Good

By | crystal healing, Uncategorized | 746 Comments

On Saturday Night, August 12th, Mercury has entered its infamous Retrograde phase and will stay there until September 5th.

Mercury Retrograde has gotten a bad reputation. Communication problems, travel delays, technology break downs… all of this makes it hard to really look forward to this period. However, there is a way to use this time for our Highest Good. Like in an ocean, instead of letting the waves hit us we can learn how to ride the waves and have fun doing it.


What exactly is Mercury Retrograde?
When we say Mercury is retrograde it means that from the point of view of Earth Mercury seems to move backwards. This is an optical illusion as Earth moves past Mercury in its orbit around the Sun. Similar to when we pass a car on the freeway, the other car looks like it is stopping and then moving backwards.

This optical illusion of Mercury Retrograde is very important, since during this time illusions of all sorts will come to the surface.

Mercury Retrograde will bring out shadows from our subconscious, hidden things that we have forgotten, that we have neglected or that we have denied. Since we can expect delays and problems in all things Mercury – writing, publishing, selling, traveling, technology, communication – this period will bring us ample time to re-connect, re-think and re-flect on our life.

When Mercury is direct its energy operates mostly on Left Brain activities… logic, reason, control, analysis and practicality. When Mercury goes retrograde its energy shifts towards Right Brain activities like creativity, intuition, sensuality, imagination.

People who have Mercury Retrograde in their natal chart will most likely enjoy this period because the energies on Earth are matching their own inner energies and they are used to indulge in right brain activities anyway.

For people with direct Mercury in their birth chart who love control, order and logic in their lives this period can be chaotic and frustrating, unless you know what to expect… and how to use it for your highest good.

How to use Mercury Retrograde for your Highest Good?

It is advised to not make any major decisions during this time, to not sign contracts without rereading the small print, and to not plan too diligently during travels (since it is most likely to happen differently than you expect anyway).

The key is to let go of control. As long as we want to control our lives, Mercury Retrograde will come and destroy the way we operate, it will be like a storm changing our course of lives while we’re desperately trying to hold onto what we think we need to do. This will cause suffering.

However, if we let go of control, if we go with the flow, then Mercury Retrograde can be a very creative and intuitive time. It can be a period in our lives where we go within, re-flect on any limiting beliefs that are holding us back from moving forward and then come out stronger than before.

Instead of seeing Mercury Retrograde as a curse, you can then see it as a gift. A gift to help you on your life’s journey towards inner peace.


This is what may come to the surface for you to reflect on according to your Sun Sign:

When any of these shadows come up for you, see them as a gift from Mercury Retrograde. These problems and fears are not meant to be hidden away, but you are meant to look at them, reflect on them and let go of any limiting beliefs that caused them. You are the creator of your life. By truly asking yourself the questions in the right column, you can find out any hidden subconscious feelings you might have not been aware of that are attracting certain struggles into your life. When Mercury goes Direct you have the power to move forward with your goals and implement all that you’ve learned throughout this period.

Be gentle with yourself. Take your time. And don’t take things too seriously. In the end, life is a game and you are meant to enjoy yourself.

I’m wishing you a wonderful and transforming Mercury Retrograde period!

Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse

By | crystal healing, Full Moon | No Comments

Can  you feel it?  The energetic release that comes with the Full Moon?

The New Moon in Mars really shook things up for a LOT of people.

Not only are we having a Full Moon, but there is also a partial lunar eclipse that will be most visible in Africa and Asia.

With the Full Moon in Aquarius, it is a great time to focus on any aspect of your life that is guided primarily by emotions such as friendships, relationships and family.  

By being in tune with your own emotional needs and intentions, you will have more clarity about the imbalances in relationships of all kinds.

The lunar eclipse represents a resetting of emotions, clearing away old baggage from the last 6 months and welcoming in new relationships and experiences.

With the energies of Jupiter and Pluto in effect, you may find yourself focused on success in the workplace or inspired to start a new side business.  You may feel an intense desire to step up to the next level and embrace the spotlight of leadership.  Just remember, problems always come before solutions so pay attention to those little clues that light the path for your next big step.

Lunar Eclipse times & dates: 
Los Angeles August 7 – 11:10 am
New York August 7 – 2:10 pm
London August 7 – 7:10 pm
Delhi August 7 – 11:40 pm
Sydney August 8 – 4:10 am

You can learn more about this special Full Moon here:

Full Moon in Aquarius Lunar Eclipse Triple Release

Full Moon Releasing Ritual:

1. Write down all that does not serve you any more on a piece of paper. This can include attitudes, emotions, people, relationships, illness, pain, habits, addictions… Anything that you want to release.
2. Go outside and burn the paper, releasing the things that do not serve you back to the universe. Be sure to stay aware of your surroundings for fire safety reasons. Some people like to douse the ashes with salt water for an additional connection to the earth & sea.
3. Say thank you. 

As always set the crystals outside over the next couple of nights for a full moon bath and charge!!

“Full moon shining bright, let your light cleanse my sight. Attract new beginnings to my life”

By putting the crystals under the energy of the full moon, you are helping them release their energies that have built up over the last cycle so that they may begin to attract new energies and beginnings for you.

Using Crystals to Calm Your Anger

By | crystal healing, holistic healing, Self Care | 871 Comments
We are just coming out of the volatile New Moon in Mars energy. I know after talking with a lot of you Anger has been surfacing for you.
The New Moon brings forth subconscious issues to bring transformed. It is completely normal and healthy for Anger to come!
Firstly, I want to say that our Anger is actually here to teach us, lol, that is if we can calm down enough to tune in and hear our lessons. Our anger serves a higher purpose. 
We tune into our lessons and use our anger as lesson for growth by first accepting it. Truly embracing our anger without judgement. When we accept that we are angry rather than denying it, repressing it, or fighting it then we physiologically instantly become calmer and more rationale.
I invite you to sit with your anger and just breathe! Breathe it in and ask it what you need to learn from this experience. Next, grab a piece of paper and begin free writing or brain dumping! Just get it all out of your body! This is a beautiful way to release energy and learn! Don’t worry about what you are writing down, you can burn it afterwards as a symbolical way to release it to the Universe and have closure.
Blocked or unexpressed anger causes our Solar Plexus Chakra, (Our Power House energy center located above or naval to be unbalanced). It is important to release your anger or it will only hurt you in the long run. It may even be extra weight around your stomach, tummy issues, low self-esteem, over or under assertiveness. These are all examples of an out of aligned Power Center caused by unexpressed anger.

Healing Crystals for Cancer

By | crystal healing, holistic healing, Self Care | 62 Comments

I get asked by clients almost weekly about using healing crystals for cancer… Almost ever family member I have lost has been due to cancer.  Just this past week alone I have learned of 5 people recently diagnosed with cancer.  

You can wear healing crystals as necklaces, earrings, bracelets, earrings and more!  By wearing your crystals, you are connecting with them in several ways, vibration, color / light & by absorbing the minerals they contain.

Healing crystals for cancer can vary depending on the type and location.  In general, I recommend: Shungite, Smokey Quartz, Selenite and  Aquamarine.

Shungite- cleanses and detoxifies the body. It’s great to use in elixirs and cleanses the body from the inside.
Selenite- high vibrating healing stone that cleanses the Auric field
Aquamarine- gives courage to fight the cancer and aids with speaking up with Doctors
Smokey Quartz- protects your energy, helps to keep you grounded in the present moment, and wards off any unwanted energies

By taking a Holistic approach to Cancer, you increase the odds of true healing…

By combining the healing energy of crystals, essential oils, yoga, self-care and more, you are greatly increasing your odds…

Natural therapies have been thoroughly investigated by researchers but don’t expect to see them being used in mainstream cancer treatment anytime soon.  Holistic remedies, activities like yoga, essential oils and more can compliment cancer-fighting medical treatment by healing the body, mind AND Spirit.

Some essential oils have been found to directly attack cancer cells by slowing their growth.  They have been proven to slow down the growth of existing cells and prevent new cancer cells from growing, all while leaving the healthy cells intact!  Besides fighting cancer cells, essential oils can also help with some of the symptoms of traditional cancer treatment.

Many studies have linked practicing Yoga with reduced fatigue, more restful sleep & lower stress levels in cancer patients…. not to mention the added benefit of fat loss (where cancer cells love to flourish!)

This is a generalized Holistic RX for cancer….Depending on the type of cancer my recommendations may be more specific.

Full Moon in Capricorn – Embrace Your Power

By | crystal healing, Full Moon, Manifesting, Uncategorized | 99 Comments

We are currently experiencing the energy of the “Thunder Full Moon” in Capricorn.

Have you noticed the effects of the Full Moon energy?  You may have started to feel it at the end of last week.  This strong full moon will be influencing your energy through tomorrow and maybe even Wednesday.

Have you noticed some old patterns rising to the surface?  What about situations that you’ve felt torn about – whether to do with work, loved ones or other situations?

The Full Moon in Capricorn taps into our inner struggle.  The Yin / Yang.  Our personal conflicts and turmoil.  By harnessing this energy, you can tap into your inner knowing and choose the path that is right for you. Aim for a calming state of balance.  This is a time of transformation in your life.

Ask yourself these questions:
Where have I been holding back?
What makes me feel strong and powerful?
What can I do today that would be fun and empowering?

Full Moon Releasing Ritual:

1. Write down all that does not serve you any more on a piece of paper. This can include attitudes, emotions, people, relationships, illness, pain, habits, addictions… Anything that you want to release.
2. Go outside and burn the paper, releasing the things that do not serve you back to the universe. Be sure to stay aware of your surroundings for fire safety reasons. Some people like to douse the ashes with salt water for an additional connection to the earth & sea.
3. Say thank you.

Protecting Your Energy

By | crystal healing, Manifesting, Self Care | 100 Comments

Today I want to talk to you about protecting your energy from those who do not have your best interest at heart (Energy Vampires), they feed off your light to make themselves feel better.


I had an experience over the weekend where I witnessed an energy vampire feeding of an unknowing pure light. The energy vampire would speak to the girl she was “grooming” and she was manipulating her by making her responsible for her well-being. Watching this play out before me reminded me of some recent articles I have read about the Narcissist and the Empath. I always want to intervene when I see this happening to someone I care about.

5 signs You are being taken advantage of by an Energy Vampire.


1: They make you responsible for their emotions, well-being, and happiness

2: They have no respect for your boundaries

3: They constantly talk about their issues, looking to you to fix them. They will ask for advice, but they never follow through.

4: They use guilt tactics to manipulate you, they want you to feel sorry for them.

5: They have a poor me / victim mentality

5 ways to Protect your Energy

1: Use Crystals! Carry them with you, wear them in jewelry, keep them around you. Set them on your desk, your nightstand, the kitchen, etc……. Below are my crystal recommendations to protect your energy.

2: Trust your gut, your intuition! Your intuition is there to protect you, and it never lies. It is your first thought, it’s the thought that you you to reason with, rationalize away.

3: Take a walk in nature and Earth, also referred to as grounding.” this act of Earthing transfers the Earth’s electrons from the ground into our body. This helps to cleanse the system of negative (unwanted energies) that you may have picked up from being around people that do not have your best interest at heart.

4: Sit in an Epsom bath with a piece of  Smokey Quartz! Smokey Quartz will infuse the water grounding and protective energies and the Epsom Salt will help to pull any unwanted energies, energies not serving your highest and best.

5: Create a grid for Protection and meditate daily with your grid. I suggest using some of the crystals I mentioned above and whatever else you are intuitively drawn too. Below is an example of grid I made for protection. Don’t forget to program and activate your grid.

I used Black Tourmaline in the Center as my focus stone. This stone is excellent for grounding and protections. I then surrounded the grid with other protection and cleansing crystals such as Selenite, Amethyst, Smokey Quartz, and Labradorite.

Now, I know this is especially hard for the Empath. Empath’s first response is to care for others. Just remember you can help others the best by caring for yourself. Setting boundaries for yourself and your energy is a profound act of self-love! You are not judging the energy vampire, you are simply discerning what energies you will allow in your life.
