CRYSTALS | How I Started Collecting Crystals



For me, I've always owned crystals, I'd see one and buy it just because they were pretty rocks that captivated me. It wasn't until I met my boyfriend that I really got into them. One day he was showing me his collection, and I didn't think much of it until he handed me a dark blue skull that sparkled with little flecks of silver and it gave me chills everywhere. He said he used it when he wasn't feeling very good and you could tell just by looking at it that it definitely held those very bad vibes. It hadn't been cleansed in quite a while, if ever, and crystals need that to get rid of the bad energy that they can hold onto. That was the moment I really knew that crystals did, in fact, give and receive energy, there was no denying it at that moment, as crazy as it might sound if you think they're just pretty rocks like I used to.

The skull my boyfriend has is made from Purple Goldstone. Goldstone is a type of glass that was made by alchemists in the seventeenth century when they were trying to make gold. It's purple because of manganese which is said to have healing, shielding and protective properties as well as helps to rid you of negative energies. It definitely did its job but needed to be rid of the energy it had held onto so I placed it under the moon which is a great way of cleansing, we'll get more into that on a later post.

Now I have quite a large collection of crystals, all varying in size and shape. My favorite though and first one I ever purchased is the Rose Quartz, I now have a few big chunks and a ton of smaller ones. If you're looking around my house you'll find them on the bedside table, in the bathroom drawer, on counters, almost every little place that they could be, they are! I love the rose quartz because it encourages self-love, protects you against nightmares, and helps to raise the vibrational frequency of your home.

If you're ever out and about shopping and come across some crystals you'll sometimes find that you're drawn to certain ones. This is how I always choose my crystals, or rather they choose me. Pick them up and get a feel for them, see which ones are right for you. If you have an urge to pick one up that usually means that it has the right vibrational frequency that you're needing. Generally, if I'm out shopping this is exactly what I will do, I'll just look around and browse and wait until something pulls me in and then research it later if I'm not exactly sure what it's used for. It's definitely okay though to pick crystals based on what you're needing at the time. If you're looking for a certain one but it doesn't have a feeling pulling you in don't worry, it will still work for you!

Which crystals have called to you? What's the first one you ever purchased? I'd love to know!
