Feeling Positive

Happy Friday!


For today's post, I wanted to talk about something different.

Crystals.

I wanted to share with you a story about one certain crystal and my collection.

I know they are not everyone's cup of tea and I'm am no expert at all.


(This post might be all over the place, I just don't know how to word all of whats in my head to here.)

About two years ago, I started to collect crystals. Here and there, mostly at Marshalls, you have to really dig to see if there are any good ones. When I started collecting them, I just thought they were pretty (sad to say) and can be used for home decor. I then found out that they can actually help with depression and anxiety, and which I have trauma depression and anxiety. Flash forward to now, with all my crystals; stones, rings, bracelets and necklaces, I feel like I've been feeling more positive and that they are actually working. They help a little with my anxiety and depression but I am looking into how they can help even more. I know that certain stones can help with certain things, like sleep, headaches and the list goes on and on. I want to try to get into using the certain stone for that is entitled for. People use them for mediating (which I want to get into). I feel like when I wear my rings, bracelets, and/or necklaces, I feel more at ease, if that makes any sense. Like I said I'm still learning. I do want to cleanse the crystals and make time out of my day to just stop and get my mind together with them. Again, am I making sense?


Enough with my rambles, here is the story that I was taking about in the beginning of the post...

My Rose Quartz ring.

So, about 8 months ago, I started seeing this guy. After a few months of dating, I then started to wear my claddagh ring. I wore it on my right hand on my ring finger. We were boyfriend and girlfriend and I really liked him. Sounds promising, right? We were together for about 5 months and all of sudden, he

stops contacting me. He ghosted his own girlfriend (this story could be its own post). There wasn't even a breakup. I had no idea what to do. So, I took off the ring, because every time I looked at it, it reminded me of him and I did not want that at all. When I finally took it off, I saw that it left a scar. Some people said it was just an indent on my finger from it, but I knew it was a scar. The indent wasn't going away. I decided to to replace the claddagh ring to hide the scar. I went into Kohls, yes Kohls, and picked out a Rose Quartz ring and after I paid, I put it right on. I felt so much better with that ring. Flash forward about 2 months-ish ago. I usually take off the ring to shower. After my shower one day, the scar was GONE. I could not believe it. There was no indent of the current ring on my finger. I was amazed. After that, I had to look up the meaning again of Rose Quartz. You would not believe what it means. "The love stone, Rose Quartz is believed to enhance creativity, HEAL EMOTIONAL WOUNDS and MEND BROKEN HEARTS..." I could not believe it. And still cannot believe it. I still wear it everyday. I believe that the crystals can help. So, that's when I decided to start collecting more crystal jewelry.


So freaky, right? As I am typing this, there are actually no words on how I feel about that story. I feel like the Rose Quartz began my love for crystals. So, down below is my assorted collection.

Hope you enjoyed this random ramble.

Until the next post!
