Are you new to the wonderful world of crystals? Has something drawn you to them, and do you have an incredible urge to collect as many as possible, but have no idea where to begin? There are thousands of different crystals and stones with many different properties in existence, and aside from being very beautiful, they all hold tremendous healing potential.
In the past, I never really understood crystals. I had friends who would hold them and immediately begin to feel their “power” or properties, saying things like, “Oh wow, this one feels very energetic,” or “This one is a very loving, protective stone,” etc. While I believed in the potential power of crystals, I felt as though I was not intuitive enough to feel it, or my friends were exaggerating, or perhaps that crystals only worked for certain people.
Then something interesting happened. I was going through a really difficult experience, and I was in the midst of arguing with an ex-partner when he had a bit of anxiety attack and ran out of the house. I ran after him to make sure he was okay, and then I noticed, right underneath my feet, this beautiful amethyst crystal, just sitting in the street. I picked it up, took it home, and looked up the properties and the definition of this stone. I was completely amazed to see that this crystal was meant to protect me from exactly what I had been struggling with, and even encouraged me to make some pretty big decisions in my life. From that point forward, I was sold on crystals.
Since then I have had a few other significant events with crystals and stones, and they always seem to come into my life at the right time. And that is exactly what they are meant to do. A dear friend once told me that if you are wearing a crystal as a piece of jewelry and it falls off and you lose it, then the crystal is no longer meant to be with you and it is no longer serving. Someone who is in need of that stone will then find it. This is just part of the mysteriousness of crystals.
