Crystals and Stones For Absolute Beginners
If you’re anything like me, you just can't get enough of crystals and stones!
They’re so beautiful and there’s just something about them that draws us in.
MY HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
I started collecting crystals and stones when I was a teenager, I would go to the shop and browse all the tumbled stones and buy a few that I liked, but I never knew what to do with them. I felt a special connection when I’d buy them, but then I would take them home and the novelty faded away. Eventually, they would just sit and collect dust and in time, I lost interest.
Fast forward to about 15 years later, I trained in Reiki (a technique of energetic healing) and became a reiki master. Right after I received my last attunement I found myself drawn to crystals and stones again. I found my old collection and started to add more and more stones to it. However, I still didn’t quite know what to do with them.
I gathered some information through reading, videos, blogs and such, but, for some reason nothing really clicked. What did happen though is that I started to use the stones intuitively during reiki sessions that I would give my clients. I would place them on my client's body and ask the stones to do what they can for this person. I honestly had no idea what I was doing, but I allowed myself to be guided and just trusted that it’s beneficial whether I understood it or not.
Over time, from my own exploration, my relationship with the stones grew. I experimented, allowed myself to be guided, trusted and things began to unfold.
I’m still just a mere student on this journey, no where near a master, but, I do feel like I have some information and tips to share with you all. I like to keep things simple and accessible and my intention for this series is to grow my own relationship with my crystals and stones and provide some insight and practical advice for all of you wonderful seekers!
I originally wanted to write one post about this, but then realized that I have so much to share. I personally like when blog posts are short and sweet, so, I decided to write a series instead of one big hefty post. And just like that, a series is born!
I will be posting once a week on Tuesdays starting tomorrow so stay tuned for tomorrow’s post!! I’ll be going over just where to start and how to begin connecting with a new stone.
Until then, have a wonderful day, take the time to sniff a flower and marvel at a stone.
Thanks for reading and blessings to you all,
I’d love to connect with you!
Let me know if there are certain topics you’d like me to cover.
