Go HERMIT MODE With These 7 Crystals 🧙‍♂️ Stop Distractions (Monk Mode)

Enhance hermit mode, also known as monk mode with crystals. These seven spiritual stones will help support you in limiting distractions, working on yourself and completing projects. Finally gain the clarity, focus and motivation you need…

What is Hermit Mode?

Hermits and monks often live away from people, in nature or hard-to-reach places for a reason. Hermit mode also known as ‘monk mode’ is a way to limit outside distractions and focus on what you need to.

This could be for personal development or for achieving a goal that needs your full attention and time. You have to be ready. Here are a few reasons you might need to go hermit mode:

1 – To complete something you’ve been procrastinating on

2 – To gain more clarity on something or your life direction

3 – To change or rebuild your life

4 – To receive inspiration for creative projects

5 – To write or finish writing a book or course

5 – To lay the foundations for a new business

6 – To study, take a course or learn needed skills

How Do You Go Hermit Mode / Monk Mode?

This will depend on you and your lifestyle. For many people, it means distancing themselves from people. Taking a social media break. Limiting phone use, TV or the internet. What is distracting you or contributing little to your goals and dreams? What are you procrastinating on? How would your life look if you made a radical change?

This is a temporary mode, you may just need a weekend, a couple of weeks or months depending on your intention. You could go hermit mode after 9 p.m. or after your children are asleep.

Time Management Tips

You will need to create a daily schedule for these hours or days to focus on what you need to get done and stick to it. I don’t know where I would be without my InnerGuide Planner (affiliate link) to be honest. I like how holistic they are, I’ve been using them for at least 5 years now...

I also highly recommend you start your day with a good spiritual morning routine. Of course, you need to let your friends and family know what’s going on and why you need to have this time.

    Blue Apatite is my go-to for focus and distraction problems. I don’t use social media, I haven’t got kids… but I have got a demanding husband and an even more demanding autoimmune disease; and being a class one introvert, I tend to spend some of each day in hermit mode. That’s especially true of the school holidays, when even a single trip to the supermarket can be a bit fraught with risk (some parents don’t watch their little darlings, and I’ve lost count of the number of times one has almost smashed into me with a trolley). I like Labradorite for hermit mode too.

    I’ve also found that a good, powerful Clear Quartz Generator can, if asked for help, turn aside visitors and neighbours from knocking on my door.

    Ethan, any idea which Angel(s) we could call on to help with this? I was thinking Archangel Michael to begin with, but are there others?

    Hello Ethan,
    Thank you for providing these. I’ve got a question for you. I saw a “Blue Onyx” and a “blue pietersite” at a gem show this weekend. I’ve tried to find where to buy these, and worry about finding genuine ones. Do you have any recommendations? These are probably rare, I’m guessing.
    Thank you as always!

      I’ve not heard of Pietersite being faked before. I don’t have any blue onyx. Most my crystals were bought over a decade ago from places that no longer exist. I would look on Etsy and check the reviews to find a reputable buyer.

      1. Cherry

        Blue Onyx is quite a rare crystal, which can also be found sold as Aquitaine Calcite or Aquitaine Lemurian Calcite. It isn’t Onyx at all, but it actually is a type of Calcite, and care must be taken with it for that reason; but it is the most gorgeous shade of blue, with occasional white and some sandy brown bands (which are, I believe, the reason it was incorrectly dubbed Onyx). I think that few other minerals are such a spectacular colour, like you’re standing in the upper reaches of a large, fairly deep cavern, not far underground and with the sun reaching through holes in its roof, looking down into medium depth, clear water. I have a Blue Apatite dragon egg that’s similar but duller, and a tiny Indicolite, which is similar, but much darker; I’ve never seen another crystal show that precise shade (the closest I can come is a faceted Alexandrite in daylight; the facets flash a quite similar blue as you move the gem).

        As far as energy goes, the colour is a total giveaway: this crystal is chock full of cooling, soothing Water energy. Though it doesn’t seem to have much to do, energetically speaking, with the storied predecessor to Atlantis, I think that’s what gave it the moniker, “Aquitaine *Lemurian* Calcite”. The ocean connection is common to both civilisations, so it could equally well have been named “Aquitaine Atlantean Calcite” except that I’m given to understand it’s found closer to the Pacific/Indian Ocean, than the Atlantic. It’s found in a remote part of Argentina as well as Mexico, the finest specimens coming from Argentina, and it does take a superb polish when tumbled.

        I recently acquired a piece online myself, and the day it arrived I was having a tough time with hot flashes (isn’t the Menopause charming?) As soon as I connected with my new friend, my internal thermostat was lowered as quickly as it rose! That aside, I loved its energy so much, I immediately went back on the website, found they had just one more piece, and bought it; the first piece also advised me to do so and, when the second one arrived – which it duly did the following morning – to hold one in each hand (specifically, the first piece in the left, second in the right) whenever I felt the need for some extra calm.

        I can’t argue with instructions ‘straight from the horse’s mouth’ lol!

        As to where to buy, in the States, the Crystal Council have it in stock as of this writing (Saturday March 16th, 2024), and it does pop up elsewhere too: my local crystal shop had a nice 6″ tower in stock last week (for £55, so out of my budget), and I bought my two tumbles from Silver Moon Crystals, an uber-reliable UK seller based in Southport, with whom I’ve dealt many times and to whom I give my highest recommendation. They’re an honest, crystal-wise husband/wife team with very reasonable prices and a wonderful variety of stock. I’ve just checked, and they have five specimens in stock right now, a tower and four tumbles. Unfortunately I have no idea whether or not they ship internationally, but it’s worth a try, since I can’t find anything on their site that categorically says they don’t.

        Love and Light.
