I will let you in on a little secret as to how I choose my topics for both the podcast and my writing…I want to know more about it myself! Yep, that’s right. Unless it’s a topic that I am truly passionate about, I often choose my topics based on the fact that I want to learn more about said topic. While that kind of ideology works in most regards, I will tell you one place it doesn’t work: in choosing crystals.
There are no amount of books, podcasts, YouTube videos, etc. that are going to tell you which crystal is the one for you. Sure! Those resources can get you on the right track and help you figure out which crystal you want to pursue, but those resources will never be able to tell you without a shadow of a doubt which crystal at the shop is meant to be yours. Crystals (or rocks for non-believers) have energy properties to them–we all do! You’re energy, I’m energy and we all give off different vibrations and frequency. Really, only you can pick the right crystal for you because you are picking a stone that often matches your vibration.
Well great, that doesn’t help me out at all Stacey! I know–it’s disheartening isn’t it? I will tell you the first step in how to pick a crystal–and this is coming from a girl who didn’t know any other crystal choosing designator other than “ooo, that’s pretty!” First, you need to know your body. You need to know what your tell tale sign is that alerts your body. For me, when I know something is present, or true, or anything of that nature I get goosebumps. When I pick up a crystal, and its vibration matches mine–I get goosebumps. Other people get a tingle in a certain part of their body, other people have a psychic/mental connection, other people hear a ringing. It’s totally dependent on the person and no one is going to be able to tell you what your tell-tale sign is. You have to figure it out for you. I know that sucks, and is not really all that helpful–but I never said the truth was going to be easy to hear.
I knew nothing of crystals outside of their beauty. Now, anytime someone asks me about a crystal for an ailment I’m writing out crystal RX’s like nobody’s business lol. Here is the deal with anything in life: if you are closed-minded, don’t expect anything to work for you. Life is all about change and taking chances and embracing new ideas. If you believe that a crystal cannot heal an ailment, then it will do just that–not heal a damn thing. Why? Because your vibration has already snubbed it. Vibration and frequency are scientific. There is no woo about it. If you go into pursuing crystals with both an open mind and an open heart, I think you will be pleasantly surprised what they can do.
My favorite way to use crystals is in meditation. I can put a clear quartz on my third eye and experience events that I would not experience without the presence of the crystal. I know it sounds a little too good to be true, but I encourage you to try it. At the very least, if you feel the crystal does nothing for you, you have a pretty natural rock to place on your shelf. I hope you’ll give it a try and I hope you’ll do so with an open mind. All of these antics come from the wisdom and knowledge of the ancients. I do not believe for one second that we as human beings today know more than what they did then. We’ve lost our connection to the earth and to the sky–they knew both like the back of their hand.
Tell me which crystal you choose and why you were drawn to it. I would love to post your story for others to read. Love and light to you, always.
