Now... bear with me. I donít normally make chit-chat threads, but this is playing on my mind somewhat and I just wanna get some opinions.
I have a rather large collection of crystals. I wear them as talismans for all sorts of situations. I sleep with them under the pillow. Sometimes they fall out of my bra at the end of the day. They just make me feel better about my day to day life.
Today I performed at an open air poetry gig to about 35 people (socially distanced of course - safety first...)
Naturally since social distancing has been in place during the great fuckening of 2020, I was particularly nervous to get back behind the aforementioned mic. So I wore a chunk of sodalite which I charged with my intentionó a crystal renowned for public speakers and the throat chakra.
Iím also a reiki practitioner. I do believe in chakras and energy. Yes Iím that woman. No I donít care.
Something happened to me tonight. Something just took over. I just became something else.
I canít remember the last time I performed like that. There was no anxiety. I just exploded into this fkn fearless thing.
Iíve long believed in the calming effects of crystals. However, Iíve never had such a strong reaction to a crystal before.
Was it likely the metaphysical effect of the crystal or was it somehow a placebo effect that I had something physical around my neck that I believed was assisting me? Was it both?
So my question is this: do crystals have metaphysical powers or do we essentially make the magic in ourselves because we believe we have something assisting us?
Whatís your thoughts on them? Any stories to share?
Missy, congratulations on such a Fab experience.
I am very happy for you and the outcome of your day.
Sodalite! What a good choice, a perfect stone you chose to enhance your ability to perform.
A beautiful, powerful stone for your intention very wise choice.
Sodalite as you probably know is good for self esteem, to promote self worth and overall emotional balance.
Since there is no scientific proof that crystals work, as medicine or if the energy they emit will work the way we believe, then all we can rely on IS our belief, which is a powerful thing.
I have been digging quartz crystals for almost forty years, my prize crystal is a 40lb quartz crystal point.
I dug by hand the only tool I use was a screwdriver
It took me two weeks to dig it out of the ground.
I stayed the entire time pitched a tent and dug .
There was Microcline, as well as Mica in with the quartz
The Mica books were as large as my hand .
The location was unexpected as it was a place where professional motocross riders of So Cal have practiced for many years .
I had been searching for Garnet at the time, which I did find also the size of a baseball, when I felt a pull, an intuition to dig this location.
I denied it at first,
My son, who we call
"The Crystal Whisperer" because he can find quartz pockets anywhere / everywhere. was reluctant to agree that there may be quartz where I had said, so I began to dig by myself
My other son was busy on a Smokey quartz pockets about 4 miles away where he eventually pulled out 8-10 inch long Spears and a few sceptors.
With all that being said,
I feel there is something to be said of belief, and the energy that emits from that belief as well as from the crystal
and the ability to tap
My son who dug the smokies also located a large pocket of quartz known as the Lemurian record keeper It has been told to him several times that he is of Lemurian DNA and not just anyone is set to find these stones
He found a record cache not seen by most in So Cal.
He believed he would someday find these "record keepers" and he did.
Belief is a powerful thing my story I posted today on the SATORSQUARE magic? Or belief? Or ?
who can say if it was magic ? Who can say your experience was belief or energy
Only we who believe can profess to such experience it's what we choose to believe in .
One more story
I had a baby cottontail rabbit years ago who adopted me i had been living in the desert in my tent for three years when he wandered into camp
He was very very young appeared to have lost his mom
I fed him local brush and greens, the season was waning as far as edibles went, but we had an unexpected heat wave which was followed by a flush of tiny flowers I gathered them up and laid them out smorgasbord for the baby and I went for a hike. When I returned the rabbit was engorged he had practically eaten himself to death became impacted and within two days was near death
I was beside myself with guilt
I placed a large smokey sceptor in his bedding and waited
Before 15 minutes had passed he was startled out of his bed and began shitting everywhere
He ran circles away from the stream of shit that followed him
Haha now was it the power of the crystal? My belief? Or just time for the blockage to break free?
