“You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.
Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them.”

New Stones and a Shelf to Put Them On

Last Sunday my husband drove me out to a small town a few miles away to have a look at a shelving unit that I found on Craig's list that I thought would be perfect for my crystals and stones. To be honest - it was hideous and definitely not worth the $20 they were asking for it. However, it did have a couple of redeeming qualities - it had glass shelves and a light at the top.

So, upon offering $10, which the lady gladly accepted, we were on our way . . . once we finally got the unit into the back of my car that is. Let's just say it was a very uncomfortable ride home for me.

After a good washing, a coat of primer and two coats of paint, the shelving unit turned out to be not half bad.

And of course, not one to leave a shelf empty, this past Saturday we took a drive to Milwaukee so that I could get some stones that were on my wish list. With the help of my 'intuitive' husband (he seems to have a knack for this) I was able to fulfill my wish list and then some.

On this shelf from left to right are my two Quartz Wands and a Quartz point, two Labradorite spheres, Citrine, Cherry Quartz, a Carnelian sphere (which I love, love, love), and a Smoky Quartz crystal.

On this shelf are from left to right and front to back:
Black Onyx, Garnet, Black Obsidian (Root Chakra)
Red Jasper (Sacral or 2nd Chakra)
Moonstone, Tiger's Eye, Malachite (Solar Plexus or 3rd Chakra)
Unakite, Green Aventurine, Rose Quartz (Heart or 4th Chakra)
Fluorite, Blue Kyanite, Blue Calcite (Throat or 5th Chakra)
Sugilite/Charoite, Lapis Lazuli, Amethyst (Third Eye or 6th Chakra)
Black Tourmaline (Crown or 7th Chakra)

So, with some of the thousands of crystals and stones available in place, a crystal class under my belt and having signed up for an eight week crystal class, I'm on my way to seeing one of my goals realized - that of a Certified Crystal Healer.

Granted, it will take time, bit it's so worth the effort! There is just so much to learn about these amazing entities and I plan on enjoying the ride . . .

Yay for crystals! You have a great collection started. I used to work in a bookstore that sold tons of crystals and sort of "got hooked". :) I use them for meditation, self-healing and just for staring at because they are pretty. LOL. Do you have any 'natural cut' stones? (I don't know if natural cut is actual terminology, but I mean stones not smoothed, like a big chunk of amethyst). My natural cut amethysts are my favorite out of all my stones, that's why I'm asking.

Blessings on your crystal healing adventure!

You made a very beautiful shelf out of your find! I love your crystal collection. Wow! Very impressive.

Beautiful Tereza! Your find for $10 looks good in your room. Fabulous that it has glass shelves and a light! Your stones look wonderful on it.
Your room, in fact, looks calm, serene, and healing.

i hope you see this comment! i LOVE stones and crystals as well but where i live, there are no shops that carry them. i found this site a while back and the nice lady who runs it is very sweet. i think her husband just passed a month ago or so. her name is charlie. she has lovely items and free shipping.


i buy quite a few things from her. i thought you might like her as well
