First let me start off by saying I’m very new to this whole “witchy” thing. I became interested in tarot years ago but hadn’t explored it much until recently, and that’s when I also discovered crystals and followed by jumping headfirst into this path.
I remember being drawn to crystals as a kid, going to little fairs and shops and asking my parents for a few dollars so I could buy a pretty pink rock. I am convinced I will one day find all these crystals I bought years ago in a little box somewhere.
Since re-discovering them I’ve been drawn towards Amethyst more than any other crystal. I believe it has to do with its calming properties. So I went ahead and started to carry one in my purse with me, and I have a few throughout my home. I believed in their properties but maybe some part of me was still skeptical.
My best friend went on a trip recently, and I lent her my tiny little Amethyst I always have in my wallet with me. She rolled her eyes but promised to keep it on her.
So, Amethyst-less, I went to a friends house to housesit and after a few days there I felt off. My anxiety was really bad, worse than it’s been in awhile. I broke down crying out of nowhere, I texted my boyfriend literally asking him what was wrong with me. (He immediately drove over to make sure I was okay, by the way). All this to say I was really unsure why it was so bad. I’m always fine being away from home, so it had nothing to do with that.
It was only a few days after I stopped housesitting that I realized when I got home that I didn’t have any of my crystals with me. I’d relied on always having one in my wallet And then having a few placed about in my home that I had taken granted of their properties.
I’m convinced that my anxiety manifested itself because I no longer had the amethyst to help keep my mind calm when it gets itself all worked up.
