Video: ASMR Reiki & Crystal Healing Roleplay

While looking for crystal healing videos, I stumbled on this one. I had no clue that the ASMR community has incorporated Reiki & Crystal Healing into their videos! I’m not mad at it either, as a matter of fact I watched a few minutes of it and found it very relaxing. I couldn’t watch it all though because I’m not at home. Also, it’s best to have some headphones on when watching these videos so you can turn up the volume, hear her talking with her soft voice as well as hear all the tapping sounds.

For those who don’t know, ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. You can read all about it here.

One of the first ASMR videos I actually watched was by Gentle Whispering. Oddly enough, she also did a video with crystals in it!

I am really in awe of everyone’s creativity on YouTube. So yeah, even if it is just ‘roleplay’, I admire how much detail each ASMR artist puts into their videos.

I’ve been wanting to do YouTube videos, but I’m not sure what I would make my videos about.

Crystal of the Day: Amphibole “Angel Phantom” Quartz

What can I say about Amphibole Quartz that hasn’t already been said online…

it’s a Quartz crystal filled with all kinds of other minerals – blue asbestos, Hematite, Kaolinite, Limonite and more – when cut and polished it creates what looks like flowing, wispy wings and texture inside the crystal, thus giving it the nicknames Angel Phantom Quartz or Amphibole Lightning Quartz.

Definition of amphibole from dictionary.com:

  1. any of a complex group of hydrous silicate minerals, containing chiefly calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, and aluminum, and including hornblende, tremolite, asbestos, etc., occurring as important constituents of many rocks.

And yes, the mineral group does give you the vibe of angel phantoms and lightning – for me personally, I imagine visions of fiery angels accompanied by gray clouds and thunderous flashes of bright light descending down from the heavens with giant, wispy wings.πŸ”₯

Wouldn’t that would be a mind blowing experience!βš‘πŸ‘βš‘

Some articles describe Angel Phantom Quartz as gentle. My personal opinion: it is not gentle and soft at all, but loud and somewhat intense. I suppose it depends on each individual specimen, but this particular one is definitely fiery, most likely from red Hematite.

So while we’re waiting for angels to appear to us, we have a perfect 3D representation of that powerful, ethereal and angelic force – the Amphibole Quartz. You can work with Amphibole Quartz to open the 3rd and 6th or 7th chakras – as they work together to assist you with creative manifestation from a higher, more spiritual plane.

I also want to add that you don’t have to believe in angels to enjoy Angel Phantom Quartz – from an artistic point of view, the amphiboles also look like layers of three dimensional brush strokes from a painting. Mother nature is truly amazing.

Because it’s Quartz which is programmable and contains all other colors within itself; and that there are so many other minerals present in Amphibole Quartz, I believe that you can balance all chakras as well with this crystal.

Edit: this amazing crystal has sold. We are currently out of Amphibole Quartz. Please visit this page to see what else we have.

Crystal Book Reads: Cosmic Crystals by RA Bonewitz

Often times I’ll buy a book based on its cover and this one is no exception. I love the typography, the use of star and crystal elements – a combination I never seem to tire of. Vintage books are probably more interesting cover-wise than most modern book covers these days, at least to me.

I believe RA Bonewitz has a science background but also had a spiritual experience of some sort and so he blends geology and metaphysical stuff into this book. Included are technical illustrations of the atomic structure of minerals as well as different shapes and sizes of them.

I’ve not finished the book but have jumped around mostly, I confess that I have a hard time finishing all sorts of books because I go in and out of being interested.

Nonetheless, this is a fascinating book to have in your collection if you love and appreciate crystals and minerals both from a geological and metaphysical point of view.

A Limitless and Infinite Being…But How?

How can we call ourselves “limitless” and “infinite”…if we are stuck in these very limiting and finite human bodies?

Tell me.

I’m writing this post because for a long time, I just didn’t get it.

Hearing spiritual people say things like “we are one” or “we are connected” often left me dumbfounded.

Hearing spiritual people say “you are an infinite and limitless being” confused me even more.

First off what does it all mean…and why do these people talk like that?

So yes, once upon a time I was new and didn’t understand those sayings. They all either sounded like riddles to me or a lot of abstract thinking that I just could not grasp. And rightfully so; I can look back now and say that certain information was presented to me only when my mind was ready to know and receive more.

As of late though, my mind has been taking a back seat. The overuse of logical and analytical thinking can kill the trip we’re on. Use your intution instead.😊

So again, what does this have to do with crystals? Why do I keep writing about this stuff?

Because eventually you will realize that everything IS connected.

Crystals and stones lead to an awareness.

Awareness leads to conscious breathing.

Breathing leads to meditation, meditation leads to a still mind.

A still mind discovers that it is one with the Divine.

The Divine is also us. We are the universe experiencing itself.

Therefore, we are infinite beings…

we are connected, we are One.✨

It’s complex yet simple at the same time. Our existence is truly a paradox.

How am I so sure of this now?

I really don’t know to tell you the truth, but I’m learning to listen to the inner voice within me. I’m learning to listen to my body and my feelings. I’m learning to listen to the subtleties of energy. Know that you are capable of learning this too.

Surely if none of this stuff resonated with me, I would start to feel fear, confusion and doubt. Something would definitely feel ‘off’ and I would be resistant to receiving such information.

But that has not been the case with me at all as I have continuously over the years been drawn closer and closer to this kind of stuff. And if you’re reading this, then you are too.😊

Welcome to the rabbit hole!Β You will never see reality the same way ever again.πŸŒ€πŸ°πŸŒ€

So what’s next? Where do I go from here? Should I follow you?

Don’t follow me, rather follow whatever it is you’re into. Trust that whatever resonates with you is your truth, trust that whatever you’re into – your hobbies and interests that you don’t make any money off of but enjoy doing anyway – are leading you to your True Self, the real you.

The Cosmic Crystal Universe and You✨

When we start incorporating crystals into our lives, expect for things to change.

Everything will most likely look the same on the outside, but your inner world will never be the same.

Expect the unexpected. Expect synchronicity. Expect mind-blowing experiences. Expect for your imagination and intuition to increase. Expect for amazing and wonderful things to happen.

Expect to become One with the Universe.✨

Like today, I wanted to write something useful for this blog…something that people would search for and read.

Well guess what? This blog post has already taken a different turn, a very trippy and metaphysical turn.πŸ‘

I was inspired to create a digital drawing to go with this post, and lo and behold…I just wanted to draw spirals and crystals. And now it’s an animated gif.

Spirals have been a theme in my life as of late. When I started this crystal shop a year ago, I had certain expectations of how I thought it was going to be. At first I was sort of comparing myself to other shops, trying to figure out how I would present myself. I realized quickly that comparing myself to others didn’t work for me and needless to say a year later – ALL those expectations have pretty much flown out the door.

Why?

I can’t explain why, but the one thing that I can say for sure is: we are always changing and evolving.

Who we were last year isn’t who we are today and right now in this present moment I am the same person but at the same time completely different. A lot can truly happen in a year for you and I.

The Rabbit Hole is a SpiralπŸŒ€

When you start getting into metaphysical / spiritual stuff, you will definitely start to hear the term ‘rabbit hole’ more frequently.

If you’ve watched Alice in Wonderland as a kid, then you’ll remember that Alice follows the white rabbit and falls into a hole that basically takes her into another dimension, another reality where nothing is like her ‘real life’ at all.

That’s what life has been for me lately, not so much a hole but more of a spiral.

I say spiral because we as humans tend to revisit moments in our lives, more commonly known as the past or the future. But if we stop viewing time as linear, you’ll realize that when you’re remembering something or someone from your past you’re literally spiraling back to that moment but at the same time moving forward and positioned a little bit higher…just like a spiral or even better…a tornado spiral.πŸŒ€

You’re now looking back at something from a different perspective and gathering information from a higher and more evolved version of yourself.

What does any of this have to do with crystals?πŸ’Ž

Everything and nothing. The crystals and stones are one of many helpers from our beautiful earth that can assist us in expanding our consciousness; they are tools, allies, friends, teachers.

Conclusion

Open your mind and your heart, know that you are a limitless being existing here right now for a reason. Get to know yourself and enjoy the journey, there is so much depth within you.πŸ’–

How to Break Through a Creative Block with Crystals

So I’m having a major creative block today. It’s gloomy and cold out here and even though today is Tuesday, a day associated with the planet Mars which is supposed to be all about action and energy – I don’t feel so motivated or action-oriented.

I want to crawl into bed and sleep, or read a good book then fall asleep. Then wake up and do absolutely nothing, or sit on the couch and scroll through Instagram and ‘like’ stuff.

Unfortunately, I can’t. I have a fulltime job and so I’m in front of the computer writing, thinking, trying to force some kind of creativity. If you’re a creative type then I know you can relate!

Creativity however, is not just limited to those ‘creative types’ that we normally think of – artists, designers, writers, musicians, etc. All of us, including the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms are in a constant state of creation.

But still, we all experience blocks.

How to Break Through a Creative Block with CrystalsπŸ’Ž

Here is a quick and easy way to start generating ideas using the assistance of a crystal, stone or even fossil:

Step 1: Whatever crystal or stone you have with you, take it out and hold it. Metaphysical teachers often say that for the best results, use your receptive hand.

For example, I write with my right hand so my left hand would be the receptive hand.

Step 2: While holding the crystal take a deep breath in, exhale and ask it to help you get inspired. You can even hold it up to your third eye / brow area if you want, as long as no one’s looking of course.πŸ˜‰

If you don’t have anything with you, then search online for the first thing that pops into your mind, don’t spend too much time searching; trust that the first one you think of IS the crystal, stone or fossil you’re supposed to work with for this simple exercise.

Step 3: Spend a few minutes contemplating this crystal or stone (in my case, this large, gorgeous and iridescent Ammonite fossil). Observe its physical details – color, shape, any interesting characteristics that stand out to you; contemplate how long it took to grow and evolve and how far it actually traveled to get into your hands.

Step 4: Start writing in your notebook, journal or your blog – whatever you have in front of you.

Step 5: Thank the crystal or stone for helping you.

I want to add that maybe you might not instantly start getting ideas right away, it might happen now or maybe even later; either way give it time and be patient with yourself. Keep trying.

It’s easy to get caught up in ourselves, it’s easy to get swept away with what’s happening on social media, news, politics, etc.

We follow too many people thinking we’re going to get inspired by them when in reality we become overloaded with information and so we end up losing our very own selves, the very essence of who we are.

Thankfully we can use crystals, stones or just about anything from nature to inspire us or get us back to our center. I know I definitely need to, as I work in graphics & marketing by day – I need to constantly have fresh ideas coming in.

Metaphysical Vibes’ Crystal Muse: Angel Aura Quartz✨✨✨

I have to admit – I have a hard time writing on here. I really want to write more but I’m much more comfortable writing my thoughts over at my art and personal blog: Save the Savages.

But I’ve also read a lot of articles on marketing your business online and a lot of them say that if you’re feeling stuck with handling different aspects of your business – start with what you’re good at.

And so what am I good at? I consider myself pretty good with creating graphics and visual content so that’s exactly what I did with the animated gif below.

I told myself that I would blog for Metaphysical Vibes today, even though I don’t know what to say as I still don’t think I’m a crystal expert at all nor will I ever be. But I don’t want to wait until I’m an expert because by then, I might already be dead!πŸ’€

We have to try to do things now even if you or I feel that we’re not super good at it. What really counts is that you’re passionate about it, as there is never a perfect time to start anything.

As the popular saying goes – it’s time to get out of your comfort zone.

I will say one thing though: Angel Aura Quartz has a special place in my heart. I didn’t think I would love this metal-coated crystal, but it seems as if it has become my personal and business muse; very much like a beautiful friend that inspires and uplifts you.

And so I found myself creating this gif today because I wanted to add original content on this blog.

When I think of Angel Aura Quartz I think of beauty, inner peace, upliftment and inspiration from the higher realms, a truly positive and high vibration crystal. Perfect that Quartz is able to bond to such a treatment because they seem to truly go together, as Quartz amplifies those beautiful and positive thoughts.✨

How Can We Experience “Heaven on Earth”?

I’ve been seeing the phrase “heaven on earth” a lot more lately; I didn’t know what it fully meant until I started delving into meditation and working with crystals.

When I think of heaven, I immediately think of how the movies portray heaven to be like: white clouds, a golden gate, everyone is wearing white…

Sounds kinda boring actually.

But how many of us really know what heaven is supposed to look like anyway? So in the meantime, let’s imagine the next best thing…

βœ¨β˜οΈπŸŒ™βœ¨β˜οΈβœ¨β˜οΈπŸŒ™βœ¨β˜οΈ

heaven on earth

βœ¨β˜οΈπŸŒ™βœ¨β˜οΈβœ¨β˜οΈπŸŒ™βœ¨β˜οΈ

To me, heaven on earth means to be present. To live in this now moment and appreciate it to the fullest. Once we decide to be present, we start to notice little things that perhaps we’ve never really noticed before and it takes on an extra, almost unexplainable dimension. It becomes magical.

Depending on how you perceive life, this can be easy or difficult.

Here are some simple suggestions on ways to experience heaven on earth, I believe that each of us is probably already doing this one way or another – the only difference is that you are fully aware & conscious of doing these things:

Waking up, paying attention to your breath and saying ‘thank you’. How often do we really pay attention to the simple act of breathing? If we didn’t breathe, we wouldn’t be alive.

Wake up early and witness the sun rising, or go to the beach and witness the sun setting and see how amazing the sky looks during. The colors of the sky are simply breathtaking during those two daily, natural events.

Hanging out with crystals; I find that by going to a local metaphysical store that has lots of beautiful crystals can literally feel like heaven on earth! It’s hard to be in a bad mood when you’re surrounded by crystals.

Find enjoyment and pleasure in whatever you are doing – especially the mundane, day-to-day stuff; whether you’re driving, washing dishes or working at your computer.

Surround yourself with the things that you love and find to be beautiful. My home is filled with art, books, crystals and stones. A vase full of flowers.

Looking up at the night sky and appreciating the moon and the stars.

Meditating in silence.

Learning something new.

Dancing.

Listening to your favorite song.

Actively thinking positive thoughts and looking for ways to feel good without the need to use drugs.

The list can go on and on, really.

What are some of the ways you have personally experienced heaven on earth?

What Is So Special About the Aura Quartz Crystals?

I didn’t really pay attention to the Aura Crystals – a name that is given to any Quartz crystal whose surface is permanently bonded with natural metal oxides (Silver, Platinum, Titanium, Gold, Cobalt, Niobium, etc. or a combination of these) through a process called Vapor or Vacuum Deposition – until I entered the business side of crystals.

And prior to that, I only had one Angel Aura Quartz crystal and didn’t really get any special vibes from it. It was pretty, but that was it. I also noticed that when I scratched the surface of the crystal with my fingernail the pastel rainbow metallic film came off, which told me that the aura crystal wasn’t of high quality to begin with.😐

Since then I have been somewhat obsessed with Aura Crystals, mostly wanting to know and even witness the process. What can I say, I am a bit of a nerd and obsessed with acquiring knowledge.πŸ€“

Which brings me to the topic of this blog post: What is so special about the Aura Quartz crystals?

As I don’t quite understand my own growing fascination with them and the actual process of how they came to be, here’s my take on what makes them stand out:

+ Their intense metallic, vivid and iridescent colors instantly pulls you in and makes you say “wow”! I’d like to think that Aura Crystals work best through Color Therapy

+ They’re shiny, sparkly and look really cool on a cluster of crystals.

+ They really command your attention somehow because of their striking beauty.

+ The shape of the Quartz specimen – whether it’s a little point, a tumbled stone, a polished self-standing (or flat-bottom) tower, a cluster, a sphere, a geode, a Quartz unicorn carving or a giant, magnificent crystal is truly enhanced by the Aura treatment; you simply CANNOT pass by and ignore it.

I didn’t think they were special until I started to buy them for the shop, until I actually started to see better quality Aura Crystals, until I saw that people really loved them.

 

Another important question: do you feel anything off these Aura Crystals?

This question is highly subjective and will vary from person to person as some people will say that Aura Crystals are manmade, while others will say it’s an alchemical union between nature (crystals) and science (the aura treatment process). But even manmade stuff uses raw materials from the earth so if you think about it, literally EVERYTHING comes from the earth.

I will however, say this: always trust your own intuition. Always trust your own feelings: if you love Aura Quartz, then keep on loving it; if you don’t, then you don’t. It’s that simple.😊

If you’re not feeling anything off of them but still like them, you can always put your Aura crystals on or near a Clear Quartz cluster to cleanse or purify them or put them around other natural crystals. A Selenite slab would also be good for this.

If you love Aura Crystals please feel free to check out our selection at Metaphysical Vibes.

So tell us, why do you love the Aura Quartz crystals; which one is your favorite?
