Back in 2019 I found myself in a really dark place; I hated myself, hated my job, hated life itself, and couldn’t see past the darkness in front of me. I’d lost a few friends to suicide and started to think that I may have been spiraling that way myself too. I was questioning everything in life.
One of my friends introduced me to crystals and I bought a handful from her, thinking “what’s the harm?”. Every day for a few weeks, I practiced mindfulness each morning, and I kept my crystals by my side, noticing them throughout the day, and bringing my thought process back to self-healing and manifesting what I wanted.
By doing this, I found that my worries slowly but steadily started melting away. I wanted more info so I started reading book after book on crystal healing, reiki, positive intentions, and gratitude. My friends and family didn’t really give it much attention, and obviously I was met with the occasional “it’s all a load of crap!” comments – but all I thought was “I’m carrying a pretty rock filled with positive energy in my pocket, it’s not harming anyone at all.” and so I continued.
