I was working as a Resident in Fremantle Hospital in Psychiatry. It was very exhausting work. At the time I knew I was sensitive to other people's energies, but did not know how to manage that. I worked hard to make sure that I would be able to take an hour for lunch and leave the hospital and go down the street into Fremantle. Although I didn't know it, I was clearing my energy by getting outside and going for a walk. Despite all that I found myself feeling progressively more fatigued. One lunch break I decided to look for something that could help me - although I didn't know what I was looking for. I thought aromatherapy might help, but really I just hoped to find something... anything that could help me.
I wandered into The Pickled Fairy - those who know me would know I was lured in by the pinkness and sparkles - but perhaps there was something else at work! ;) I came across two small boxes of coloured stones. Above one of the boxes was written "Energy and Motivation", I thought to myself - well that is exactly what I need. I picked up one of the stones and to my great surprise and excitement - I could feel it "buzzing" in my hand. I was completely amazed! I felt like a child who had stumbled across some kind of special secret! I took my stone straight to the counter and bought it - not letting it go for a moment and made my way back to work.
That stone - a Citrine - never left my hand or my pocket during my whole Psychiatry rotation! I could feel it's vibrations in my hands and I could feel my own energy levels lift.
After a time I became curious over how the other stones might feel... and so began my explorations into Crystals. I discovered that each different type of crystal would change how I felt in my body, mind, emotions, or my energy levels. I progressed to studying further in books on crystals and then undertaking a number of different courses in Crystal Healing!
I am still grateful to my beautiful Citrine crystal for opening me to the world of crystals and all their healing magic!
