My Fascination With Rocks


As a little girl, I was always fascinated with the rocks in our back yard. My brother and I would spend hours digging roads into the clay banks, building cities of make-believe. Thus began my fascination with rocks. Even now as an adult, when I visit the old home place, I am amazed to find large chunks of gypsum lying on the surface of the ground that have been exposed after a day of rain. Sometimes I get lucky and find a piece of quartz, or a rock that is splattered with pyrite.

The beginning of my crystal collection started back in 1994 when a friend of mine gave me a piece of petrified wood from Colorado. The center vein of the piece glistens with a reflection like mother of pearl. On the surface, tiny crystals of topaz sparkle where the tree bark once grew. I have formed quite a collection of crystals and stones since then, each one with a story to tell.

In 2007, I was given a Lemurian Seed Crystal. A stranger approached me and said, “I believe this belongs to you”, and then handed me the crystal. At first I refused the gesture, because I knew I did not have it in my possession, and therefore I hadn’t lost it. But still, he insisted, placed the stone in my hand and walked away. Many of my crystal stories have a strange similarity to this one.

The reason I have chosen to tell you how these two pieces of my collection came to me is because of their effect. I have meditated with these two peculiar pieces placed together. The insight that was gained during this meditation time was profound. In my mind I was taken on a journey back through time. During my meditative travels, I witnessed many lifetimes as though I had been transported through a portal of historic events. It was fascinating!

I had never meditated with crystals before, though I had used them for other purposes. I have found over the years through my rockhounding quests, that crystals have long been believed to be “keepers” of secrets and useful for energetic healing. My first experience of meditation with crystals was a strange and beautiful journey into ages past and has long since been a source of peace and inspiration. It was as though I had been given the key to the journal of a soul.
