A couple months ago I had an experience that almost completely shattered my spiritual beliefs in everything. It all stemmed from a little Obsidian sphere I bought off of eBay two years ago. I've been interested in crystals and crystal healing for some time and learning about their individual qualities and how each one helps with different things.
I remember when I first bought the obsidian sphere. Originally, I purchased it because it is supposed to help with clearing negative energy and anxiety which is something I’ve been struggling with for the past several years. When it finally arrived, I picked it up and held it in my hands, and I remember feeling a slight humming vibration coming from it and also feeling a happy, warm and fuzzy feeling. It did exactly what I expected it to do and I did not question the energy/power I felt from it.
Fast forward a couple years later to 2019. We moved into a new apartment and I was unpacking my things. I unpacked my crystals and pulled out my obsidian sphere and held it.. but this time I noticed something odd. The black paint that was covering it started chipping off. That’s right folks. My little obsidian sphere I had bought was not obsidian at all, but a glass ball that had been painted black.
Once I realize this, I started questioning everything I believed in, I questioned crystal healing and their individual powers. I had to confide in my spiritual social groups because everything I thought I knew and believed in was all up for questioning at this point. What was it that I had felt? Is it all made up in my head? Someone quoted a line from Harry Potter that was pretty on point.
"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry. But why on earth should that mean it is not real?"
I was made to realize then and there that crystals, as beautiful and magical looking as they are, are powerless. Every meaning behind each crystal and what they do independently is false - until we make it true. Crystals can not do a damn thing for you, not by themselves.
It was then and there that I realized that WE are the ones who hold the power. WE are the ones that give the crystals the power and purpose and set that intention for them. That little glass ball that I received did exactly what I had intended it to do, because I gave it the power through intention to do it.
I felt like this was an important message to share today, because I know that there are many out there who are like me in believing the source of the power was from the crystals, not within ourselves. I feel this realization though is so important, because once you have experienced how to tap into that kind of frequency, your entire horizon expands and you grow. You realize that you don’t need to buy the most expensive tools or crystals for your needs. You can simply go out into nature and use what you find - for free!
The power was within you all along; not in the crystals. Believe in yourself, and believe in your own intent and you will create miracles all on your own. ❤️
My husband probably thinks I'm crazy but I hugged a couple of trees today :fa2 . I saw an experiment where there were two trees and with one tree people only spoke negative, hateful words to it and the other tree people only spoke positive and good words to it. The tree that was spoken negatively to shriveled up and died and the tree that was spoken positive words to thrived. Which leads me to believe trees are much more intelligent than we might realize. So I hugged a couple! :fa4 Spreading the love :love
