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!
