What are Crystals?

Before I get into explaining this, I want to let you know that sometimes you will hear us healers refer to our stones and crystals under one umbrella term of crystals even though, technically, they are not the same thing. For the sake of ease and understanding, know that there are stones, such as lapiz lazuli, there are rocks, and then there are crystals. If you stay tuned, at the end of this post, there is a webinar replay that you can sign up for to get even more info on crystals.

Back to crystals…. Crystals are naturally occurring, “nonliving”, solid pieces of matter that are arranged in what is called a crystalline pattern. That is why they are called crystals. Crystalline means that the molecules that make up this matter are arranged in a repeating geometric pattern. Rocks and stones may be a mixture of crystals, minerals, and other pieces of matter.

How do Crystals Work?

If you remember anything from your science classes as a child, then you may remember that even if something appears solid and immobile, such as when you look at a chair, that if you were to look at the things that make up the chair on a molecular level, you will see movement of those particles. Those moving particles are in motion at different speeds depending on the composition of the chair. Similarly, the particles that are moving at the molecular level when examining the chair will be moving at a different speed than the molecules that make up a piece of glass, for instance. The characteristics of this movement is sometimes called vibration and that vibration emits a frequency.

Because each crystal is a unique pattern of molecules that are vibrating in their own unique way, they all carry different and unique vibrations. These unique vibrations emit power, frequency, and energy that is used in a variety of ways. Electronics and watches is just one example of where crystals are used. In watches, quartz crystals are able to maintain a precise frequency that makes your watch more accurate. It does this thru vibrations that emit a certain frequency. Crystals work similarly in electronics as well.

If you can understand the usefulness of crystals in these instances, think about how you could use them in your own personal life and use the unique properties and energies that crystals have to help you transmute energy by the movement of that energy. One thing to think about, let’s take a high vibrational crystal such as the amethyst you see in the title of this blog post, high vibrational molecules can often move into areas of low vibration, thereby uplifting the vibration in the lower vibrating area. This is another way that crystals work.

How can Crystals help you heal?

As I have explained, crystals have different unique energies, vibrations, and uses. When you choose a crystal, you are inviting the vibration of that particular crystal into your environment so that you can benefit from what that crystal has to offer. You can benefit from their energy by wearing them, carrying them, or placing them in your environment. You and the combination of things in your environment all give out energies and vibes and the crystals are able to add their vibes into the mix to disrupt the current energy and transmute it into what that particular crystal does as I explained with the example of high vibes effecting low vibes or how vibes correlate to frequencies.

Think about how someone with a low vibe can suck the life out of the room and someone with a high vibe can add life to the room. Crystals are the same except since they are made in a perfect crystalline pattern, they are vibrating purely and #unbothered (most of the time).

If you pick a crystal that is linked to an energy that you need to tap into to help heal, that crystal will help you transmute the energy that needs it’s help. That is basically how crystals can help you heal.

How do I know what Crystal to pick?

I have a couple of things that can help you. First, I have a book on Amazon that goes over crystal healing. You can check out the book, Crystals: 10 Crystals for Beginners to Start Healing Now by Yashica’s Intuition, here for less than $4 or FREE if you have KindleUnlimited.

I also did a webinar a couple of years ago where I went over several crystals that can help you get your life. I went over 6 crystals and their uses and went more in-depth about which ones to pick, what they do, and how they can help you. I even went over how you can place them in your environment to make them more powerful. It is an information packed video and this replay is available totally FREE.

Sun Conjunct Pluto Life Changing Weekend- January 11, 2019 thru January 13, 2019

Astrology Reports, energy healing info, Life Hacks from Yashicayashica crumptonComment
u2304_breastcancerangel.jpg

On the weekend of January 11-13 the divine energies in the sky will dance with each other to create some powerful energy for you!

So we just had an impactful solar eclipse new moon to kick off the new year in Capricorn. You walked into 2018 with powerful Capricorn energy as well. I will, once again, link some of the articles that I wrote and videos that I did to help teach you what to expect since some of you are new here… welcome by the way! Check out Saturn in Capricorn article and these videos #1, #2, #3, and #4.

Let’s now talk about how powerful this weekend is and how it could have an impact on you.

HOW THIS WEEKEND WITH SUN CONJUNCT PLUTO MAY FEEL

This energy all kicked off very early in the morning on January 11th. When the Sun and Pluto met in the sky, it brings with it an initial period of increased power where you may feel like you are shook to your core to create something powerful for yourself or you may feel like creating something lasting and tangible in your life. Don’t get all crazy and overly optimistic but don’t be a pooper either….. I will talk more about this later. So this energy is powerful and life changing and sometimes we are able to jump in and embrace it but we could also fall victim to self-sabotage. Something in your life may not be the same, including relationships, so look at who you have around you and do what you need to do to to have a supportive and inspiring group of people around you and give no attention to those that don’t.

There is some secret or intuitive information that will be revealed. This is happening to give you more clarity and insight and show you the truth and the way. This assists you you in upleveling and working hard on positive transformation and soul evolution. While I am pumped at what 2019 will bring, I am more excited because with Capricorn involved….. this is something more substantial and something more lasting.

There is this interesting thing that can happen though… where the eclipse can make fated changes that your human self may not have the strength to make, this energy seems, to me, to require an action or choice on your part. You aren’t going to have a different life by being the same person reacting to life the same way, and this seems to be the key here. You will have to DO something to help capitalize on this divinely inspired energy. Because Pisces is involved, I absolutely believe that the core of it all is evolution, spiritual growth and awakening, creativity/manifestation to give birth to something divine (with your intuition being able to lead you the correct way), romantic connection on a soul level, and some deep healing. You can progress and break ties that tear down old structures and create new structures. You can tap into a powerful cosmic energy that you can work with and manipulate to create a totally new life for yourself. You are one with the cosmic womb!

So that’s this wonderful powerful energy you have at your disposal…..

There are always other sides to be aware of. Before I mention this, I want to let you know that I see a supportive energy to help you with this life changing energy so don’t ever feel like you are alone. I do want you to know what it feels like though. Deep changes and transformation can bring with it feelings of deeper emotions, wounds, and other things that may not feel so nice. You have to understand that if you can take the first step, even if it seems really hard or daunting to do so, you will be rewarded with a relationship with deeper parts of yourself or with attaining your higher dreams and aspirations. You will not be able to move to your highest potential if you are not willing to do this. Feel inspired by struggles and don’t let them weigh so heavily on you. Rome was not built in a day and nor was it destroyed.

The other thing that I need you to be aware of are feelings of self doubt, second guessing and mistrusting yourself, not listening to your instinct, or other internal conflicts. Moodiness is absolutely possible, especially if you haven’t been nurturing yourself or others. I would encourage you that as you are going thru this growth that begins internally before it manifests outwardly… to nurture yourself and stay in a nice healing space that you create for yourself. If you choose to exhibit this energy outwardly, you may create unnecessary conflict in your life.

Don’t let this shadow energy take over you. Don’t give up. TRUST! Pull up your sleeves and get to work on your dreams and self improvement because in order for this to work optimally, you must focus your energy and concentration on the tasks or areas that are going to support goal achievement and manifestation. Be realistic trust Saturn because he is helping you see that being inspired and taking massive action is one thing but being foolishly optimistic is another. There may be a bubble burst moment or a test that will show you just how much you will need to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground in order to obtain the next level of success. Now that I am telling you about it, expect it, but don’t let it deter you! Don’t fall into self destructive or emotional behaviors. Embrace the challenges, tests, or revelations because they will orient you towards long term growth.

Lastly, if you have been ignoring shit, STOP IT and give your issues or problems conscious efforts in order to transcend and excel.

Before I let you go, one way that has helped me transform my life was thru the use of tarot. I want you to feel just as empowered and inspired as I was when I was going thru hardships in my life and used tarot to pull me out. I am offering a FREE Live Online workshop for those of you that would like to learn how tarot can be a tool to help you as it helped me. To grab your limited spot, sign up here.


SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO CAPITALIZE ON THIS ENERGY

  • This energy could also feel so strong that you may want to run away and escape. Suicide, depression, drug abuse, and obsessive compulsive behaviors could result so please watch out. Get the healing you need. Don’t fight the things you know you need to see or need to change. Stope being overly optimistic or pretending like everything is OK if it’s not…. things will only get worse and escapism is not the answer. Retreating a bit to look into deeper issues with family, sense of self, old patterns is ok. Clamming up is not.

  • What are the things that you want for yourself? Your legacy? Plan that out then get to work.

  • 2019 and beyond could be your year, but not if you haven’t shifted anything in your life…. What do you need to shift?

  • Attend my Free Tarot class.

  • Have patience…. if you trust and believe, hold that image. This is the activation of something, not the culmination.

  • Get a reading. That one is just self explanatory. Even a short, sweet 10 minute reading is enough to gain some clarity, get unstuck, and have information to get you moving in the right direction.

Love,

Yashica

Full Moon in Capricorn June 2018

Astrology Reports, Daily Video Readings, energy healing info, Life Hacks from Yashica, tarot readingsyashica crumptonComment
Multitasking-woman.jpg

On June 27, 2018 right before 10pm PST the moon became full in Capricorn at 6 degrees

HOW THIS FULL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS MIGHT FEEL

Full moons usually bring closure or culminations. This full moon in in the task master of Capricorn and is jutting right up against Saturn in Capricorn. Some of the things that you have been working on since January, at the Capricorn new moon, may be coming into culmination and I invite you to check out some of these resources to get a better understanding of what may be happening for you. Although we have a long road to go, as discussed initially when  Saturn went into Capricorn maybe some of the beginnings of these manifestations will begin to take shape from now thru the eclipse season.... don't forget that you can preorder your eclipse report here.... we will be having 3 of them right after the other and they bring with them major life changing events.

This full moon is at about 6 degrees Capricorn. This screams of a more serious, challenging, responsible full moon. It wants us to be disciplined and focused. You will have to dig in deep, put your nose to the grindstone, and walk the middle path towards your goals, life purpose and such. Family and work could be tough among other things, especially with important male figures or authority figures in your life. You will definitely have to be strong and look for the silver lining but you have so much help to get things right, such as Saturn in Retrograde, and more, so hang in there. Rewards are promised. I've been talking to you about this for a while. You are working towards something karmically big so it will NOT be easy!

If you feel like things are too heavy, here is some more help by way of Uranus in Taurus to help you as well as Neptune going retrograde. You will be able to see thing gradually more clearly and I believe the upcoming Mercury retrograde will also be helpful. Don't expect things to unfold drastically, but do expect that you will receive unexpected breakthrus and insights that will gradually move you forward towards your next phase in life. The things with this is that you have to not only trust the direction/information. you then have to trust and put in the work. YOU MUST SHOW UP!

As with all full moons, it marks some doors closing and others opening, especially with us pretty much in the very early energies of the eclipse season. I have a series of journalling questions at the end to help prompt you to keep moving towards the open doors and relapsing and aligning with things that don't serve you.

This moon brings up that stern protector that I talked about in the other Saturn articles that I linked above and this person is sitting you down because they love you and they have your back but they want you to do what you need to do to break free and realize a hope or a dream.

Lastly, if you are not in a situation in alignment with something that is ultimately meant for you and your karma, this could feel extra heave but you are the one responsible for your success and growth! No one else is obligated to move forward with you on your unique journey. It sounds sad but true.... I hope it brings more empowerment to you! Do you, no one else can!

 

SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO CAPITALIZE ON THIS ENERGY

  • I am going to suggest journaling and introspection due to so many planets retrograde and the major eclipses coming up so I have some prompters to journal on during this time
    • How are you doing since Jan 2018?
    • Are you really ready for the things that you say you want? Your biggest hopes and dreams. If not, what can you do to get back in alignment?
    • Where are you not listening to yourself or trusting spirit?
    • Where have you lost steam on your goals and why?
  • Get a reading. That one is just self explanatory. Even a short, sweet 10 minute reading is enough to gain some clarity, get unstuck, and have information to get you moving in the right direction.

Mercury Retrograde in Aries- Lessons Learned

Astrology Reports, Life Hacks from Yashicayashica crumptonComment
Ice Cream Party (2).png

I want to discuss this Mercury Retrograde in Aries that started March 2018 and how you can work this energy to succeed in life.

For the past few weeks we have been dealing with Mercury going retrograde in Aries. If you don't know what a retrograde means, I won't bore you with the details. Here is a great explanation of it.

It began on March 22, 2018 and is scheduled to end on April 15, 2018.... I always tell my peeps that it technically starts a week before and lasts a week after these dates.

Mercury retrograde, while it can be a pain in the butt, is a good time for reevaluating areas of our lives to allow our mind to catch up on things that we don't understand or may have missed. This Mercury Retrograde in Aries has left us with some valuable lessons learned. I want you to work this magic to stop feeling so damned stuck and live the life you want to live, so I want to call out the things that I think we need to pay attention to.

  • We had our planet of thinking, communication, travel, and more moving slower and not on top of it's game in an area (Aries) that tends to be self-oriented, impatient, impulsive, brave, warrior-like, and embodying forceful energy to get things started. Think about your mind trying to figure things out... to rework..... to re-do something about very important to the self and how it will be pushed out into the world paired with this energy that just wants things to happen. No bueno right? Think about this. What is the beauty of how this could help you? What could you be missing?

 

  • Have you felt stuck, confined, trapped, or restricted? Has your anxiety been on 10? If you have been trying to push and wondering why you keep butting your head against a wall, I need you to stop. This energy is not here coincidentally. I bet if you weren't paying attention, no matter how hard you pushed, you still felt blocked. Well guess what! I talked about Saturn here and he is sitting right next to this energy like your dad making any move that is not for your highest and best (even if you don't realize it) slow way down. You can't sidestep your chores! You can't half ass it! You can't push thru without taking the time to formulate a clear plan. If it is not in your best interest, guess what.... YOU WILL BE CHECKED! Can I get an amen if you feel this?

SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO USE THIS ENERGY

  • Where are you being called to redo, redefine, restructure, refine, or rework some areas of your life?
  • Because of how this retrograde started.... it was interacting closely with Venus... you should examine your life and your approach to love (others and self), money, and value. Look closely and be honest about the part that you play in these areas and how you are being called to tweak if necessary. How does love look like in your life? Do you love on yourself? Do you love yourself? Are you living in alignment with your true values? Are you respecting your resources (time/money)? Do you need to slow down and have more fun or treat yourself? Uranus starting to dip into Taurus will bring changes that could be "good" or "bad" and having a strong sense of self will be integral to the success of this transit.
  • If you find yourself in the middle of pain, heartache, or bad news, I would never want to minimize what you are feeling so this is an excellent time to surrender and pay attention to your well-being. Use the rest of this time (Till about April 22nd) to bring in your energy and center on the self.
  • And lastly, DON'T BE AFRAID TO START OVER IN SOME AREA OF LIFE

PARTING MESSAGE

I want to stress to you that we are going to have something to celebrate if we play the long game and focus on mastery in some area of life. Every day that you open your eyes and take a breath is an opportunity. We don't always feel that way, but we don't always have a good grasp on the bigger picture. You have a reason why you were put on this earth so don't let anyone or anything convince you otherwise (even yourself). 

There are people that need you and a gift that you were meant to share. If you haven't found them yet.... if you don't know your purpose.... don't give up. You reading this is a testament that you have a place in this world. Keep pushing.

Help someone  going thru a tough time & share

    Detoxifying Bath Recipe

    Astrology Reports, Life Hacks from Yashica, energy healing infoyashica crumpton
    detox bath.jpg

    Get Ready for the New Moon in Aries with this Detox Bath Recipe

     

    I like this one. I found it on alcantaraacupuncture.com

    I like it because you can customize it how you would like. I would recommend for the salt you use epsom salt in your detoxifying bath. If you want to use an essential oil, I would start with lavender. Lastly, for ingredients, I would recommend some simple rose petals. You can get them fairly inexpensively at Trader Joes. You could easily only use a few of them then dry the rest for another bath.

    This detoxifying bath, I feel, will help you cleanse the difficult energies that we are feeling and get us ready for this powerful new moon in Aries on April 15, 2018. Cleanse that difficult energy and lets start this astrological new year off right!

    How to create a cleansing ritual bath for renewal

    IMPORTANT: Pre-bath: shower or cleanse your body beforehand, since you don’t want to wash the medicine off your body for 24 hours after taking your bath.

    1. Draw your bath.
    2. Light some candles, so you may call forth your angels, guides, and other members of your Team of Light. When you are ready to release any negative energy or patterns during your time in the bath, direct the energy into the flame to burn it up.
    3. If you chose epsom salt, baking soda, and/or essential oils as bath ingredients, mix them together first before dumping, and dissolving, the mixture in the tub.
    4. Set your intention of what you want to release and welcome into your cleansing ritual bath, and ask for support towards that outcome. If you are a Reiki practitioner, now is the time to charge your bath with symbols.
    5. Optional: charge the water with the healing sound of your voice (even if you can’t carry a tune). Our voices are powerful, the vibration from our Throat Chakras are healing. And, whenever we sound and tone from this chakra with intention, it sets the tone of your ceremony, and helps you vibrate more highly. Try starting with a, e, i, o, u sounds, chanting mantras, songs that make you happy, or tones that help you feel connected with yourself, Mother Gaia, and/or Spirit.
    6. Finish drawing the bath, and dip your body into it.
    7. Allow all levels of your physical and energy bodies to drink in the healing goodness for 20-30 minutes! If it feels right, and you are using sprigs of herbs, lightly stroke your skin with the herbs, going from top to bottom of head, face, arms, legs, etc.
    8. Let your bath drain. Make sure you’re using a strainer to catch any herbs or flowers.
    9. Do not rinse off! You want to keep the medicine on you for at least 24 hours. Pat down the body, but do not wipe off. Note: if your skin is sensitive, and needs a good rinse after using epsom salt, use less than the recommended amount in the bath. Either that, or opt for another ingredient to include in the bath.
    10. If you have used any herbs and flowers, gather them and leave them in a bag outside your door, until you’re ready to dispose of them. When you do, dispose of them outside on soil.

    Common sense precautions: Do not perform a cleansing bath if you have any open wounds, or unhealed stitches. If you are allergic to any of the items described above, don’t include them in your bath!
