Thank you for visiting Metaphysical Vibes!✨
We are a small, online only crystal shop based out of Los Angeles, CA born on Earth Day 4/22/2017. My name is Pia – my husband and I have grown to love & appreciate minerals first from a metaphysical point of view then geological that we’ve made it our purpose to connect you with Earth’s healing crystals and stones.
All crystals and stones have been selected either by me or my husband from different locations around Southern California and Arizona; until they find their next guardian they currently stay with us in a loving and quiet home with a cat named Tabby.😺
I am also an artist/graphic/web designer & marketer by trade, I wanted to learn how to build an ecommerce store from scratch – technically it’s not from scratch as I’m using WordPress but the content is. Like most people, I have fantasies of quitting my 9 to 5 someday and making this my fulltime thing, or at least having multiple streams of income. I believe that the only way to learn anything is to just dive in and do it, so here I am experimenting with this site. 2012 was the year we started collecting crystals & stones for personal use, now we are giving the business side of it a shot.
My love for crystals and stones has also led me to learning and receiving certifications in Reiki & Trans Crystal Therapy.
What does ‘metaphysical’ mean?
When you look this up at dictionary.com (which I have many times), it kind of gives you a vague definition. A better way of understanding this word is to break it up into two separate words; ‘meta’ is a Greek prefix which has a few meanings – after, along with, beyond, among and behind.
So when you combine ‘meta’ with ‘physical’ – it means something after, along with, beyond, among, or behind the physical.
And that alone helps me to understand the word as a whole: beyond the physical, which in itself sounds really cool and blows my mind. It helps us to understand that we are more than just our human bodies, we are souls inhabiting and operating a biological container and experiencing reality through it.
What can you do with crystals and stones?
+ You can meditate with them.
+ Leave them around your house, apartment or office, carry a tumbled or flat stone in your pocket (or bra). Crystals are known to protect and raise the vibration of the person they are with or the environment they are in.
+ They make perfect pieces for home decor, interior design, your sacred space.
+ Not sure what to get your witchy friend? A witch will always appreciate a crystal or stone gift. They make great talismans for magical practitioners.
+ Gift them to friends who are into crystals and stones. Even if your friend or loved one isn’t into crystals, the intention you set will activate the crystal and bring positive vibrations to the person, whether they’re aware of it or not.
+ If you are into art, design or photography, they’re inspiring and make great muses.
+ You can heal people with crystals by becoming a Certified Crystal Healer.
+ And really so much more!
Where do you get the healing & metaphysical properties of the stones?
+ Throughout this website, I usually reference the books where I got the meanings from, but I also do my own work with the stones – I attend crystal meditations and have taken crystal classes out here in Los Angeles. LA is full of metaphysical teachers & healers and I’m grateful for that. The learning never stops really; especially now that I’ve established this small business, there’s SO MUCH to learn.
I also meditate or spend time with the crystals I’m selling so I can gather my own information and share my own metaphysical experiences with you.😊
Still not sure what ‘metaphysical’ means?
That’s okay! It took us a few years to understand it too so don’t worry.
To understand this term, we highly suggest watching Star Wars, especially Empire Strikes Back – the scene where Master Yoda explains The Force to a young Luke Skywalker in the Dagobah; the things Master Yoda says to Luke are profound.
How do I know all this stuff?
I’ve learned from many teachers and I’m still always and forever learning. Some of my teachers (whether they’re aware of it or not) are:
Naha Armády (22 Teachings)
Patricia Bankins (The Crystal Matrix)
Robert Simmons / Naisha Ahsian
Sarah Faith Gottesdiener
and so many more
