Going through the airport security and you are asked to empty out the contents of your handbag! Well, this could get kind of interesting if you are anyone like me and really do carry around with you EVERYTHING YOU NEED! At least I did not set the alarm off it was just my bag looks kind of odd through the x-ray machine. I really don’t think it was the crystals that concerned the security lady, but they really did look at me funny as at least five of my favourite rocks fall out onto the counter.
I actually have so many funny stories when it comes to crystals. Stories that span back 16 years of what I have always called my hippy approach to protection and love. I have found out so much more over the years and have recently been gifted into my life one amazing lady Kathy @geo junkie – talk about girl crushing. I love every single crystal that she talks about and I want one of everything. Shut up and take my money!
I can’t remember if I purchased my first crystal or if it was a gift but I remember I was in a bad place emotionally, like so many of us I was going through one of those big life challenges - a divorce with my daughters father and I did everything I could to keep my head above water at this stage – I clung to crystals for dear life. I know I really did not understand them or their power but when you are at rock bottom and honestly I was trying to hold onto anything to get through each and every day. I had no idea of how these crystals interacted with my energy or why I chose certain ones or why I had them in my bra, pockets, car, handbags but like everything I do – I understand so much more NOW. Gotta love those lessons.
So, on reflection, it really was going from one or two that I shoved in my bra to now crystals around the entire house. Every entrance to the house has crystals, bedroom, my work area and the staircase basically if you enter my home you will cross paths with my crystals. I really feel the energy of people more than ever before and I know that sounds hippy as hell but honestly all of us can feel this – I bet you have felt it walking into a room after an argument like when the air is so thick you can cut it with a knife or a salesperson who is a little bit prickly when you are being super nice. Well take this and then times it by a 100 and that is what I feel and whenever someone is covering it up "got their mask on" I still feel it. I place crystals specifically in my home to clear out any negative energy that has stuck to me, my family or any visitor coming in. You could call my home a complete 'energy safe zone' so it is a space I can rest, ground and relax. This is intentional due to the last few years of trauma and needing to find an area I could heal. Previously I have been physically ill from toxic energy and toxic environments (have you gotten a terrible headache at work etc) Well all those little things you just might shake off and ignore I can see now more than ever it is energy. So this is how crystals play an important part in my day to day.
It is not all about protection but also I use these crystals so I can feel happy, empowered, creative and love all with different crystals. So, I spread that around my house and also with my family – looking after and loving my nearest and dearest. I can tell you that this really works for me. I feel though it is so normalised as crystals are very mainstream now.
Honestly, they don't like to sit still and I do see some are winking at me (you could say they catch your eye) these are the ones that I know that I need to hold onto for that day. I do however find them everywhere in clutches, jean pockets and yes even the washing machine. I do tend to gift to others, sometimes the other person needs them more.
David (my partner) would say it is a much cheaper habit than loving diamond jewellery (do love those too) but I have come to use them everywhere I go….. Oh, this one time I was heading into surgery and I had a little bag of special crystals to get me through the procedure (total hate going under and paranoid about what I will say). The nurses were great and the anesthetist was a little unsure because I would not let go of them. When I had woken my bag of crystals were taped to my chest so no one would lose them and they were safe during the procedure. I love that it is so accepting.
Crystals give me so much joy and really a big part of my seven foundations that get me through the day. You will always find me with one, come ask me to empty my pockets and see what type I am carrying around.
