I am so grateful to the people I am meeting on this journey; it has opened my eyes to things I never noticed. Never in a million years would I connect crystals to healing. Upon first glance, I assumed they were for home decorating and jewelry.
Crystals are incredibly beautiful, unique, tell mystical stories and capture the imagination. However, are they capable of healing and spiritual awakening? Many say yes.
So of course, I wanted to see if they truly provide a sense of physical and mental well-being. I want to be the best I can be for my husband and children, so I will leave no stone unturned, Ha ha. A little research never hurt anyone.
So, I decided to take a trip to the Crystal Bowl Wellness Center in Brentwood. I met the owner Bianca Ruehlig where she provided me with a tour of the facility. She even shared her upcoming Himalayan Salt Cave for Halotherapy where Massage, Reiki and other services can be provided. For the newbie like myself, rest assured the Crystal Bowl Wellness Center is warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable.
I learned that Crystals are a grouping of minerals that can transfer energy to improve circulation of good energy and movement, inducing healing from within. I was told that Amethyst is a great starter crystal for those of us taking our first steps. Amethyst is a form of quartz and is most commonly purple. The word amethyst comes from the Greek amethystos, meaning “not drunken”. This crystal is known to bring intuition, insight and connecting to a higher self, it is also known for bringing creativity and reducing anxiety. I bought a beautiful Amethyst that I now keep on my desk, and I must say I am appreciating the sense of peace it brings to me as I tell my story and share my experiences with you!
Crystals have been known to bring positivity, motivation, peace, harmony, wisdom, and enhance intuition. Encouraging self-love, as well as providing protection and shielding from negativity is something everyone can benefit from. I personally enjoyed browsing the stones related to focus, memory, strength, confidence, courage, happiness, and joy.
But that is not all, for those looking for inspiration there may be a crystal for you. There is an area of the store dedicated to crystals known for encouraging abundance, prosperity, communication, truth, creativity, expression, and personal growth.
I have so much to learn, and I am so thankful to visit a store that gives me a sense of balance, restoration, and the opportunity to cleanse and purify the mind and body. I left the store with my beautiful amethyst and a renewed sense of calm and comfort.
The gift of hope is powerful and has the potential to benefit wellbeing over time. Hope is to cherish a desire with positive anticipation, and that sounds good to me. I hope to encourage you to stay open minded and curious with me and remember the power of the mind is the most powerful of all.
I would love to hear about your experiences!
