I’m honored and excited to share this part of my life with you all! It’s important that I tell you I’m no expert. I have always just followed my intuition and done what feels right for me.

The magic of the Universe first presented itself to me in the summer of 2015. I had hit rock bottom in my life and everything was dark, to say the least. I can’t find the words to describe it, but things slowly started to change for me. I adopted an “attitude of gratitude” even when it was difficult to find strength and to be thankful for the good in my life. Things are very bright in my world these days, but it was not an easy road to get here. My spiritual awakening was an ugly process. It was intense, isolating, and uncomfortable. As things started to shift in my life, the darkness I had tried to bury came back and manifested itself into nasty depression.

I started looking for something, anything, to bring light into my life and heal me. I would love to say I made the conscious decision to start meditating, but the truth is, meditation found me. The first time I ever felt any magic in my soul was the first time I ever used a guided chakra-healing meditation that I found on YouTube. As the voice guided me through the chakras, teaching me to cleanse and balance my energy centers, I realized that this magic was very real. I still use that guided meditation to rebalance and heal.

So as my heart continued to open, I became more and more sensitive to the energies around me. I was bombarded with negative feelings, no matter how hard I tried to stay positive. I went to Aquarius in Westport one evening, not sure what I was looking for, but I told one of the sales associates I was looking for a crystal that could, “make negative feelings and energy disappear.” He directed me to my first crystal: a black tourmaline.

The associate put it on a leather string and I wore it around my neck. Within 30 minutes I felt like the negativity, worry, and fear had melted away. It was crazy how it affected me! I wore my black tourmaline necklace for weeks and placed it on my nightstand while I slept. After I experienced such a strong connection to my black tourmaline, my crystal collection grew. I use crystals during meditation and sometimes I carry them around to feel their energy. Here are some of my favorites and the experiences I’ve had with them.

Blue Lace Agate. I purchased this stone for its calming, anti-anxiety properties. This stone has pulled me out of some intense anxiety attacks and I carry it around daily.

Aqua Aura Quartz. I bought this cluster and dropped it the next day. I still feel an intense connection to the smaller piece. The entire cluster is very powerful.
This sparkly babe is my Blue Goldstone. It’s known for its psychic properties. It caused me to have the craziest meditation experience of my life.
This flaky beauty here is Lepidolite. I bought this stone when I was having regular anxiety/panic attacks. The stone actually contains lithium and it’s extremely calming.
This baby here is Rose Quartz. I hold this whenever I want to feel warm, loving, tingly energy. It’s a love stone.
Last, but not least, is my Moldavite. You don’t choose this stone. This stone chooses you. The first time I held this stone it got very warm in my hand. My entire body started vibrating and then I cried. It completely opened my heart chakra. It was a SUPER WEIRD experience, but showed me that crystals really are magic.

Crystals are powerful and each of them carry their own unique energy and vibration. They can and will aid in healing and help you dive deeper into meditation. The magic of the universe is out there just waiting to be discovered!

Happy Halloween!
