I recently traveled to a gem show to search for treasures to pass along. I was so excited to take everything in, I forgot to take pictures so I will paint a picture of my experience for you.
There were so many vendors crowded into the room it was hard to tell where one ended and another began. Crowds of people humming in conversation and no real flow directing you which way to go. Sounds chaotic doesn't it? But it wasn't.
You feel a buzz, this palpable energy pulling you in, shifting your gaze to exactly the things you need to see. Trusting that you will be guided, you follow this energy.
I was lead to table in the back. Immediately I was drawn to their collection. There stones felt amazing, unlike some of the others I stopped to experience along the way. You can tell how people care for their stones, the energy of the stones don't lie. Some of the tables hosted sad stones, energetically depleted because they stay boxed up and stored away, drained of all their precious healing vibes. To an energy sensitive it's sad. But this table in the back was glowing. The energetic vibrations were significantly higher. Just being in the presence of all their gems gave me a buzz. I'm pretty sure I was vibrating so high dogs could hear it...
As I allowed myself to be guided through the stones I overheard the owners conversing about the energy healing work they practice. This guy is a 3rd generation crystal healer in his family and continues to run the store. I smiled to myself because I knew these stones were different and I was thankful for trusting that intuitive guidance. I went to this show with a purpose and an open intent to be guided to the best stones to get for my people. I knew I wanted stones to help in shamanic journeying and transformation. My intuition continued to lead me to the perfect stones. To be able to hand pick each stone is a rarity so I entrusted each stone to speak to me, and they did. By the time I gathered up my 2 small trays of stones I felt like my buzzing became noticeable. I was shaky and having a hard time focusing. One of the owners encouraged me to place my hand on this gigantic crystal they had sitting inside their area (I felt like I got invited backstage!). As I laid my hand on this stone all the excess energy that was making me buzz, was immediately sucked out of me. I was grounded, focused and full of clarity, in a matter of seconds!!! Now I am not one to get star struck by celebrities, they are just people, but if you can imagine the face one would make, that was me staring in awe of this magnificent crystal. The owners eyes sparkled with complete understanding as I described what I felt. I will definitely never forget that amazing moment. As he tallied up my order, gifting me with enormous generosity, I was reminded that when we listen to that intuitive guidance we are being supported by the universe.
As I walked through the rest of gem show it became more apparent how truly lucky I was. I saw some really overpriced stones, sad stones and stones of significant less quality. Then as we began to exit I noticed something even greater, being held in that amazing energetic vibration, although uncomfortable, kept me from experiencing any anxiety about being in a new location, being in a crowd of people (that is a huge trigger for me) and talking to strangers. I was shielded from all of the energy that would have normally prevented me from enjoying an outing like this. Even as I sit here typing I pause to hold my black lemurian jade I wire wrapped to wear for protection and give thanks to the amazing abilities of these stones, of nature, and of the Creator of it all.
