The number one spit firing pet peeve of mine when it comes to crystal healing and unfortunately is found among tarot card and book lovers as well are the effects of hoarding disorder.
An inability to part with material objects for the fear of not being able to save them.
I know what you’re thinking, you can never have too many crystals.
Too many tarot and oracle card decks.
And for those early risers, coffee.
However, the personal attention with your objects lessens in value as your thirst for more grows. Simply being human, we tend to forget easily in this digital age about meaning and connection unless there is a daily routine of checking in to reestablish memory. Do you find yourself a glutton for crystals? What about easy peezy spiritual ebooks that only require your email address? Whatever the case may be, this sacrilege is uncontrollable yet it’s part of human conditioning.
Choosing and storing your crystals must be a revered task if you decide to honor the facets of the stone realm. Last night, I watched a documentary on the mysteries of Easter Island presented by a charming British Archaeologist, Jago Cooper. The mere act of discovering this Polynesian neverland was detrimental and much of human error is led to blame for the desolate energy that remains there today.
I’ve always felt that those tall bulky statues with carved reflections of a face were sacred. It may very well been the only tradition to uphold the Rapa Nui belief system as some interviews suggested in the film. Presently, this little island now governed by Chile is treating pain and suffering from environmental conditions but also the greed soaked by human hoarding.
Natural resources hoarded by political systems and corporations really frustrate me. It’s a game laced in fear.
Do not follow blindly, treat your spirit with care and nurture the core of only taking what’s truly aligned with your soul. My mother has taught me important life values and since growing up impoverished, I tend to always expect the bare minimum and rarely ask. I feel this pulling gut sensation that if it’s meant to be – it will be. I too am foolish and hoard fireflies. Not real ones, but you. I care about popularity and fame like it’s the solution to all my problems. I focus on Facebook likes and uncountable friends. It’s sad to hoard energy like this and since gaining full time employment I value my time off and spend it as best I can, regardless of linear abundance.
It’s nice to have abundance to call all your own, but sharing that abundance with your spiritual ecosystem is ten times more honorable.
My journey thus far has brought me to the conclusions that I need to do what makes me happy. Giving is one of those things that permeates my soul with joy. I recently hosted a crystal giveaway on my Instagram because an aquamarine crystal no longer resonated with me and the need to declutter my space from hoarding felt right. Aquamarine is great for calming and balancing emotions, but I already have an aquamarine crystal that does this for me. It’s currently in my shower waiting for me to recuperate from the dirty world.
I do not have a huge crystal collection and only keep crystals that I know in my soul belongs to me. So, as you journey well in high spirits, I hope you choose the right stones for the right moments and keep them safely in honor of the highest good.
