My interest in crystals started last summer at my LA teacher training. My teacher trainee friend, Aja, had a beautiful crystal that I inquired about. She sent me to the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market where there was a man who had a crystal booth.
Here I am at the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market on the hunt for some crystals (with my lovely friend Britni) :
Upon returning from LA I moved into my new house in Chicago. One of the first items that I unpacked was my LA Farmer’s Market quartz crystal. This crystal is useful for retaining positive energy. It is one of the most powerful stones on earth. Before I ‘charged it’ with the happy-good vibes (and placed it in our new living room) I had to cleanse the quartz of any remaining charge from its previous owner…how do you do that? You bathe it in moonlight. duh.
At the Farmers Market I also bought my grandma a Fluorite crystal which is supposed to contain a youthful energy and is good for meditation and healing. Seriously, how cute is my grandma?
Last week I purchased a couple of crystals here in Chicago. I bought a Citrine for some Tula yoginis, Jamie, Veronica and Michelle and their new Logan Square nook and an Amethyst crystal to help me with mediation and nightmares.
Even Jamie’s cat Queso reaps the benefits of their new Citrine crystal:
Who knows if crystals actually work? I think they are beautiful and the sentiment and intention is magical.
