Welcome to Stepping Stones to Crystal Basics!
My name is Kristi and I have been working with crystals for over two decades. I believe that every thing, crystals included, are created from energy. They can be an aid, a tool, or just a beautiful specimen sitting on a shelf to be loved and admired.
I do not believe in using the general metaphysical properties found in the literally hundreds, even thousands of books out there. These are mostly people copying from each other, maybe I should say, sharing the same information *wink*, listing general attributes for a variety of crystals and minerals. Do not get me wrong, this type of sharing is as old as time itself.
And yet, it can be misleading. You see, no two people are the same. And as such, no two people have the same energy signature/vibration/frequency at any given time. A general metaphysical property is like the Sunday horoscope. That horoscope has no specifics on you. ONLY if birth date, time, birthplace, etc is given can you get any real personalized information.
I encourage you to use your time to work on your own unique energy- learning to understand it, learning to access it, learning to acknowledge that it is yours and yours alone. THAT is where the real crystal learning begins.
I am not here to embarrass you (nor would I EVER). There are no silly questions. I promise not to call you any “cute” nick names. That is kinda creepy, right? I will treat you with respect and honor your beliefs.
And please, if something I write does not resonate or set right with you? That is OK! Please do not feel the need to defend your position or belief. Everything that I write is how I see it. What I write is not a personal attack on you. Please do not take it as such. I am writing to share another perspective. I am not here to judge you. I am here to make you think, and more importantly, to make ME think.
I am intelligent. I won’t mislead you. I believe in honesty, truth, justice and integrity (often to an OCD degree). Oh, I have a sense of humor too *wink*
There is a mantra here at Stepping Stones to Crystal Basics and it goes like this:
“I believe there is no ONE right way. When it comes to working with your crystals there is YOUR way. Do what feels best for you. This is your intuition/higher self, guiding you. Become self- empowered! Do not be dissuaded by others who say there is only one way — there simply is not.” ~Kristi Hugs
