I have my own religion. But as most of you know, I’m a big fan of Wicca 🙂 Yeah it’s all the fuss about witches and sabbats and esbats, but also runes, rituals… and crystals. Gemstones. Did you know that they contain powerful energies that can help you in your daily life?
One day I was at a fair and there was a small stand of crystals. I’ve heard much about the quartz so I wanted to get one. Of course my mom didn’t want to buy the expensive ones so I have to be satisfied with a small rock crystal. I then searched his properties and all… (all this will be linked below) I copied everything in my Book of Shadows – a Wiccan diary let’s say – and then, I forgot about it… School had just started and all.
But then I watched this:
In fact there’s a whole series called Spirit Science and this is the episode 13. It’s very fun and entertaining 🙂
So then when I came to this video I thought, well anything I do, the Goddess always keeps coming to me. Because this video reminded of all my Wicca love, my Book of Shadows that hasn’t been updated for a while… So I finally decided to get serious about my spirituality. When I opened my book of shadows I was studying runes but then I told myself that I’d better give this a break and continue with crystals. But where would I get crystals?
I look up and I saw this:
Oh well so wonderful! But I’d only be able to search each their properties and copy them. I won’t be able to remove them from this plastic and keep them with me and use it magickally… because or else I think my parents would get mad lol! So I’ve decided to leave their energies for the house.
Moving on… I combed my memories and aha!
When I was small I remembered that after our trip to South Africa my mom had give me a Tiger’s Eye and told me to keep it because it was a real one. And it’s still there. I kept my promise. ^^
Then when I was even smaller I received from my godfather I think? a golden necklace with a real piece of jade as a pendant.
So to begin I have 3 crystals:
But where should I keep them?
For those who are friends with me on facebook might know that I decided to sew a crystals bag instead of buying one…
…and personalise it in An Evil Nymph’s style! I guess you also remember the Yin and Yang badge in the latest weekly photo challenge given to me by my dear friend, Alexandra 🙂
What I did for the time being with the crystals…
If you have watched the video linked above, it shows how to ‘recharge’ crystals for them to be at their fullest power and that’s what I’ve been doing. There are two ways to do that:
1. Placing the crystal out in the sun.
2. Placing the crystal in a bowl of fresh water, and even add some salt, because as Wiccans know, salt is considered to be a pure substance.
There is no specific time or duration. It all depends on you.
Then to recharge yourself with those crystals, except from the method of meditating while holding them, you can place a crystal in a glass of drinking water and drink the water after some time! 🙂 That’s awesome I believe.
Of course you’ll have to check out the properties of the crystal you wish to drink energy from.
So I’ve just covered the most interesting and new things I discovered about crystals from the video mentioned above, thus if you wish to know more, just watch it fully! 🙂
Believe me, it’s so much fun!
