Obviously certain crystals affect us differently, for instance some people might hold a rose quartz and feel grounded & protected while others may feel a more loving energy. I adore books on crystals but over the years I see people almost being programmed to think a certain stone is only for this or that and nothing else. I’m guilty in this way of thinking too for example rose quartz is known as the stone of love so you immediately go into it with the mindset that rose quartz is only a love stone.
If I could only give one piece of advice it would be to hold a crystal close your eyes and write down what immediately comes to mind whilst holding it, what does it make you feel like, anything you feel write it down than go open a book and see how accurate you were. I remember during a paranormal investigation that I took part of in Savannah, Georgia, at the Sorrel Weed House known for its paranormal activity. There were only 4 of us and we we’re blessed to have an amazing guide who let us come back after hours to explore on our own. Of course as usual I had my big ole backpack filled with all my equipment and a handful of different crystals.
While the 4 of us sat in the small house where they used to keep the slaves which was known to be the area of the most activity we sat around in a circe on the ground and preceded with our investigation of questions etc during this I without even thinking grabbed my selenite wand which at the time I did not understand why (I was still fairly new to crystals) I chose that stone in particular instead of maybe a more popular grounding or protective stone like my Black tourmaline but I’ve learned over the years to never question my intuition so for whatever reason that’s the Crystal I chose to hold. This house had a sadness of course but I felt no negative energy.
But when my body started to feel shaky and my legs become like jello (it’s hard to describe) that’s my body’s way of saying hey somethings not quite right here. It doesn’t mean it’s negative or positive I just think it’s a shock to the system. I’ve learned that my body always goes into this initial uneasiness and I just knew I needed to hold a crystal and that crystal was selenite.
When I held it I closed my eyes and felt immediate relaxation and relief than went back to the investigation, but that selenite remained in my hand for the rest of the night.
Turns out as I later researched more into crystals, Selenite has the ability to quickly unblock any stagnant, stuck energy to promote a positive, healthy flow of energy through the body. It evokes protective energy from the angelic realm to clear and shield your body. It dispels negative energy from the mind, body and spirit to bring calming energies, deep peace and mental clarity.
