What’s in the package? Um…rocks.

So several days ago, I went to the UPS store to mail a very special package. The UPS lady asked me, “What’s in the package?” My response…”Um… rocks.” Somehow that didn’t quite describe the value of the contents of this particular package.
The box was for a friend of mine who is going through some pretty challenging life-stuff. I had recently seen her at a conference and she was presenting that day. I could tell she was having a tough time and so every so often I handed her one of my healing crystals. “This is Emerald, it helps calm your entire energy system and grounds you…This is Labradorite, it will help you integrate your intuition and logical wisdom…Ok, now take Smoky Quartz, it transmutes negative energy.” This went on all afternoon. I really had no idea how much it meant to her until the session was over and she gave me a big hug with tears in her eyes. “You have NO IDEA how much I needed all those stones!” She said. “I want you to go stone shopping for me. I trust you and need you to find me some that will help me through this transition I’m going through.”
Wow! What an honor. To receive her trust. To have the opportunity to contribute to her situation in a positive way. A week later, I spent the day in Sedona, AZ, one of my favorite places in the world (for so many reasons) and carefully and thoughtfully perused the stones and found what I hoped would be the perfect ones. I took them home, cleansed them in the moonlight, asked them to give their healing power to her and packaged them up all pretty and sent them on their way with lots of love!
She got the box a couple days ago. She was THRILLED! I was…RELIEVED! It turns out that I managed to pick out her very favorite stone of all plus a couple that she instantly felt the energy of and they began to soothe her immediately. Then what she said really floored me. She took a couple minutes to specifically encourage me and let me know that in her opinion, I have a real gift for this kind of work. She knows lots of peeps in the energy-healing world and went into great detail about how uncommon it was for me to be able to dial in with this kind of accuracy to her needs with so little information.
While I have been working with stones in meditations and with groups of people for awhile, I have only very recently begun shopping for other people. I have since gone shopping for a few other people, some of them personal friends and some of them friends of friends. And I am so excited to see that the results are very similar. I can hardly believe that doing something I love SO MUCH is having such a positive impact on others.
If you are interested in exploring the healing energy of crystals, I would be so honored to be part of it with you! I have a couple stone packages available on the services page (I don’t choose the actual stones you will receive until after you order). If you don’t see what you’re looking for though, I LOVE creating custom packages, too, so email me and let’s talk about what you want and need.
