Crystals and Gemstones

One thing you'll quickly learn about me is that I am obsessed with crystals and gemstones.  Most people don't know this but I started collecting "rocks" at an early age.  I collected any beautiful stone that I came across, saving hand me downs from my sister and displaying every piece in my room like a prized possession.  I'm not sure why, but when I was a senior in high school I gave all of my rocks away.  I sometimes wonder where they ended up and often wish that I still had them.

I eventually found my way back to collecting little beautiful pieces of earth shortly after my family and I moved to Northern California about three years ago.  We found this amazing little shop that had floor to ceiling displays of the most gorgeous specimens of crystals and gemstones from all over the world I had ever seen.  From that moment on I was hooked.

I started purchasing a stone every now and then from this tiny shop and began researching the many properties of each crystal:  where they came from, how they can heal people, how they can help people grow spiritually, and what chakra they are associated with.  I found it all completely fascinating and soaked it all up like a sponge.  I eventually bought a big book about crystals and gemstones that discussed the metaphysical properties and how to use each stone in daily life.  I still read that book religiously.

As my collection started to grow so did my knowledge.  I began learning the art of crystal and gemstone healing and even took a class from a local Shaman to further my knowledge.  I had the privilege of practicing on a few really good friends of mine and even my son, husband, and animals.  I also started to perform healing sessions on myself.  I slowly began to notice how each crystal had their own vibrations and I found the sensation to be exhilarating as they were rested on my body during each healing session.

I quickly became addicted to finding rare pieces and also finding crystals that enhanced my psychic abilities and dreams.  I began sleeping with a bevy of crystals under my pillow, around my pillow, and one resting on my third eye each night.  I still sleep with a minimum of six crystals at a time.  I have found that my dreams are ten times more powerful and profound than ever before.  I've been able to heal deep seated emotions and even opened my third eye completely.

My collection has grown to over 100 pieces; some small and some quite rare and large.  Each piece is so special to me and I have developed a relationship with each one.  Some call to me during the day to the point that I can no longer ignore it.  I will carry them around in my pockets, keep some in my car, and use them in my tarot readings.  I've even noticed that if I have to be away from my collection for more than a day or two I begin to yearn for them and develop a slight anxiety until I am reunited with them.  A healer's relationship with their crystals and gemstones is something that I never understood until now.  It's complex, full of love, and unbreakable.  In other words, I am a complete rock junkie and I'm quite proud of that.
