A Limitless and Infinite Being…But How?

How can we call ourselves “limitless” and “infinite”…if we are stuck in these very limiting and finite human bodies?

Tell me.

I’m writing this post because for a long time, I just didn’t get it.

Hearing spiritual people say things like “we are one” or “we are connected” often left me dumbfounded.

Hearing spiritual people say “you are an infinite and limitless being” confused me even more.

First off what does it all mean…and why do these people talk like that?

So yes, once upon a time I was new and didn’t understand those sayings. They all either sounded like riddles to me or a lot of abstract thinking that I just could not grasp. And rightfully so; I can look back now and say that certain information was presented to me only when my mind was ready to know and receive more.

As of late though, my mind has been taking a back seat. The overuse of logical and analytical thinking can kill the trip we’re on. Use your intution instead.😊

So again, what does this have to do with crystals? Why do I keep writing about this stuff?

Because eventually you will realize that everything IS connected.

Crystals and stones lead to an awareness.

Awareness leads to conscious breathing.

Breathing leads to meditation, meditation leads to a still mind.

A still mind discovers that it is one with the Divine.

The Divine is also us. We are the universe experiencing itself.

Therefore, we are infinite beings…

we are connected, we are One.

It’s complex yet simple at the same time. Our existence is truly a paradox.

How am I so sure of this now?

I really don’t know to tell you the truth, but I’m learning to listen to the inner voice within me. I’m learning to listen to my body and my feelings. I’m learning to listen to the subtleties of energy. Know that you are capable of learning this too.

Surely if none of this stuff resonated with me, I would start to feel fear, confusion and doubt. Something would definitely feel ‘off’ and I would be resistant to receiving such information.

But that has not been the case with me at all as I have continuously over the years been drawn closer and closer to this kind of stuff. And if you’re reading this, then you are too.😊

Welcome to the rabbit hole! You will never see reality the same way ever again.🌀🐰🌀

So what’s next? Where do I go from here? Should I follow you?

Don’t follow me, rather follow whatever it is you’re into. Trust that whatever resonates with you is your truth, trust that whatever you’re into – your hobbies and interests that you don’t make any money off of but enjoy doing anyway – are leading you to your True Self, the real you.

The Cosmic Crystal Universe and You✨

When we start incorporating crystals into our lives, expect for things to change.

Everything will most likely look the same on the outside, but your inner world will never be the same.

Expect the unexpected. Expect synchronicity. Expect mind-blowing experiences. Expect for your imagination and intuition to increase. Expect for amazing and wonderful things to happen.

Expect to become One with the Universe.✨

Like today, I wanted to write something useful for this blog…something that people would search for and read.

Well guess what? This blog post has already taken a different turn, a very trippy and metaphysical turn.👁

I was inspired to create a digital drawing to go with this post, and lo and behold…I just wanted to draw spirals and crystals. And now it’s an animated gif.

Spirals have been a theme in my life as of late. When I started this crystal shop a year ago, I had certain expectations of how I thought it was going to be. At first I was sort of comparing myself to other shops, trying to figure out how I would present myself. I realized quickly that comparing myself to others didn’t work for me and needless to say a year later – ALL those expectations have pretty much flown out the door.

Why?

I can’t explain why, but the one thing that I can say for sure is: we are always changing and evolving.

Who we were last year isn’t who we are today and right now in this present moment I am the same person but at the same time completely different. A lot can truly happen in a year for you and I.

The Rabbit Hole is a Spiral🌀

When you start getting into metaphysical / spiritual stuff, you will definitely start to hear the term ‘rabbit hole’ more frequently.

If you’ve watched Alice in Wonderland as a kid, then you’ll remember that Alice follows the white rabbit and falls into a hole that basically takes her into another dimension, another reality where nothing is like her ‘real life’ at all.

That’s what life has been for me lately, not so much a hole but more of a spiral.

I say spiral because we as humans tend to revisit moments in our lives, more commonly known as the past or the future. But if we stop viewing time as linear, you’ll realize that when you’re remembering something or someone from your past you’re literally spiraling back to that moment but at the same time moving forward and positioned a little bit higher…just like a spiral or even better…a tornado spiral.🌀

You’re now looking back at something from a different perspective and gathering information from a higher and more evolved version of yourself.

What does any of this have to do with crystals?💎

Everything and nothing. The crystals and stones are one of many helpers from our beautiful earth that can assist us in expanding our consciousness; they are tools, allies, friends, teachers.

Conclusion

Open your mind and your heart, know that you are a limitless being existing here right now for a reason. Get to know yourself and enjoy the journey, there is so much depth within you.💖

How to Break Through a Creative Block with Crystals

So I’m having a major creative block today. It’s gloomy and cold out here and even though today is Tuesday, a day associated with the planet Mars which is supposed to be all about action and energy – I don’t feel so motivated or action-oriented.

I want to crawl into bed and sleep, or read a good book then fall asleep. Then wake up and do absolutely nothing, or sit on the couch and scroll through Instagram and ‘like’ stuff.

Unfortunately, I can’t. I have a fulltime job and so I’m in front of the computer writing, thinking, trying to force some kind of creativity. If you’re a creative type then I know you can relate!

Creativity however, is not just limited to those ‘creative types’ that we normally think of – artists, designers, writers, musicians, etc. All of us, including the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms are in a constant state of creation.

But still, we all experience blocks.

How to Break Through a Creative Block with Crystals💎

Here is a quick and easy way to start generating ideas using the assistance of a crystal, stone or even fossil:

Step 1: Whatever crystal or stone you have with you, take it out and hold it. Metaphysical teachers often say that for the best results, use your receptive hand.

For example, I write with my right hand so my left hand would be the receptive hand.

Step 2: While holding the crystal take a deep breath in, exhale and ask it to help you get inspired. You can even hold it up to your third eye / brow area if you want, as long as no one’s looking of course.😉

If you don’t have anything with you, then search online for the first thing that pops into your mind, don’t spend too much time searching; trust that the first one you think of IS the crystal, stone or fossil you’re supposed to work with for this simple exercise.

Step 3: Spend a few minutes contemplating this crystal or stone (in my case, this large, gorgeous and iridescent Ammonite fossil). Observe its physical details – color, shape, any interesting characteristics that stand out to you; contemplate how long it took to grow and evolve and how far it actually traveled to get into your hands.

Step 4: Start writing in your notebook, journal or your blog – whatever you have in front of you.

Step 5: Thank the crystal or stone for helping you.

I want to add that maybe you might not instantly start getting ideas right away, it might happen now or maybe even later; either way give it time and be patient with yourself. Keep trying.

It’s easy to get caught up in ourselves, it’s easy to get swept away with what’s happening on social media, news, politics, etc.

We follow too many people thinking we’re going to get inspired by them when in reality we become overloaded with information and so we end up losing our very own selves, the very essence of who we are.

Thankfully we can use crystals, stones or just about anything from nature to inspire us or get us back to our center. I know I definitely need to, as I work in graphics & marketing by day – I need to constantly have fresh ideas coming in.

Metaphysical Vibes’ Crystal Muse: Angel Aura Quartz✨✨✨

I have to admit – I have a hard time writing on here. I really want to write more but I’m much more comfortable writing my thoughts over at my art and personal blog: Save the Savages.

But I’ve also read a lot of articles on marketing your business online and a lot of them say that if you’re feeling stuck with handling different aspects of your business – start with what you’re good at.

And so what am I good at? I consider myself pretty good with creating graphics and visual content so that’s exactly what I did with the animated gif below.

I told myself that I would blog for Metaphysical Vibes today, even though I don’t know what to say as I still don’t think I’m a crystal expert at all nor will I ever be. But I don’t want to wait until I’m an expert because by then, I might already be dead!💀

We have to try to do things now even if you or I feel that we’re not super good at it. What really counts is that you’re passionate about it, as there is never a perfect time to start anything.

As the popular saying goes – it’s time to get out of your comfort zone.

I will say one thing though: Angel Aura Quartz has a special place in my heart. I didn’t think I would love this metal-coated crystal, but it seems as if it has become my personal and business muse; very much like a beautiful friend that inspires and uplifts you.

And so I found myself creating this gif today because I wanted to add original content on this blog.

When I think of Angel Aura Quartz I think of beauty, inner peace, upliftment and inspiration from the higher realms, a truly positive and high vibration crystal. Perfect that Quartz is able to bond to such a treatment because they seem to truly go together, as Quartz amplifies those beautiful and positive thoughts.✨

How Can We Experience “Heaven on Earth”?

I’ve been seeing the phrase “heaven on earth” a lot more lately; I didn’t know what it fully meant until I started delving into meditation and working with crystals.

When I think of heaven, I immediately think of how the movies portray heaven to be like: white clouds, a golden gate, everyone is wearing white…

Sounds kinda boring actually.

But how many of us really know what heaven is supposed to look like anyway? So in the meantime, let’s imagine the next best thing…

✨☁️🌙✨☁️✨☁️🌙✨☁️

heaven on earth

✨☁️🌙✨☁️✨☁️🌙✨☁️

To me, heaven on earth means to be present. To live in this now moment and appreciate it to the fullest. Once we decide to be present, we start to notice little things that perhaps we’ve never really noticed before and it takes on an extra, almost unexplainable dimension. It becomes magical.

Depending on how you perceive life, this can be easy or difficult.

Here are some simple suggestions on ways to experience heaven on earth, I believe that each of us is probably already doing this one way or another – the only difference is that you are fully aware & conscious of doing these things:

Waking up, paying attention to your breath and saying ‘thank you’. How often do we really pay attention to the simple act of breathing? If we didn’t breathe, we wouldn’t be alive.

Wake up early and witness the sun rising, or go to the beach and witness the sun setting and see how amazing the sky looks during. The colors of the sky are simply breathtaking during those two daily, natural events.

Hanging out with crystals; I find that by going to a local metaphysical store that has lots of beautiful crystals can literally feel like heaven on earth! It’s hard to be in a bad mood when you’re surrounded by crystals.

Find enjoyment and pleasure in whatever you are doing – especially the mundane, day-to-day stuff; whether you’re driving, washing dishes or working at your computer.

Surround yourself with the things that you love and find to be beautiful. My home is filled with art, books, crystals and stones. A vase full of flowers.

Looking up at the night sky and appreciating the moon and the stars.

Meditating in silence.

Learning something new.

Dancing.

Listening to your favorite song.

Actively thinking positive thoughts and looking for ways to feel good without the need to use drugs.

The list can go on and on, really.

What are some of the ways you have personally experienced heaven on earth?

What Is So Special About the Aura Quartz Crystals?

I didn’t really pay attention to the Aura Crystals – a name that is given to any Quartz crystal whose surface is permanently bonded with natural metal oxides (Silver, Platinum, Titanium, Gold, Cobalt, Niobium, etc. or a combination of these) through a process called Vapor or Vacuum Deposition – until I entered the business side of crystals.

And prior to that, I only had one Angel Aura Quartz crystal and didn’t really get any special vibes from it. It was pretty, but that was it. I also noticed that when I scratched the surface of the crystal with my fingernail the pastel rainbow metallic film came off, which told me that the aura crystal wasn’t of high quality to begin with.😐

Since then I have been somewhat obsessed with Aura Crystals, mostly wanting to know and even witness the process. What can I say, I am a bit of a nerd and obsessed with acquiring knowledge.🤓

Which brings me to the topic of this blog post: What is so special about the Aura Quartz crystals?

As I don’t quite understand my own growing fascination with them and the actual process of how they came to be, here’s my take on what makes them stand out:

+ Their intense metallic, vivid and iridescent colors instantly pulls you in and makes you say “wow”! I’d like to think that Aura Crystals work best through Color Therapy

+ They’re shiny, sparkly and look really cool on a cluster of crystals.

+ They really command your attention somehow because of their striking beauty.

+ The shape of the Quartz specimen – whether it’s a little point, a tumbled stone, a polished self-standing (or flat-bottom) tower, a cluster, a sphere, a geode, a Quartz unicorn carving or a giant, magnificent crystal is truly enhanced by the Aura treatment; you simply CANNOT pass by and ignore it.

I didn’t think they were special until I started to buy them for the shop, until I actually started to see better quality Aura Crystals, until I saw that people really loved them.

 

Another important question: do you feel anything off these Aura Crystals?

This question is highly subjective and will vary from person to person as some people will say that Aura Crystals are manmade, while others will say it’s an alchemical union between nature (crystals) and science (the aura treatment process). But even manmade stuff uses raw materials from the earth so if you think about it, literally EVERYTHING comes from the earth.

I will however, say this: always trust your own intuition. Always trust your own feelings: if you love Aura Quartz, then keep on loving it; if you don’t, then you don’t. It’s that simple.😊

If you’re not feeling anything off of them but still like them, you can always put your Aura crystals on or near a Clear Quartz cluster to cleanse or purify them or put them around other natural crystals. A Selenite slab would also be good for this.

So tell us, why do you love the Aura Quartz crystals; which one is your favorite?

What Was Your First Experience with Crystals?

My first experience with crystals was through a movie that I absolutely loved as a kid, The Dark Crystal. I watched it over and over and was so enchanted by it.

Little did I know that 30+ plus years later that I would be working with crystals in a way that I didn’t forsee. Crystals are mysterious in way that they come into your life at the right time; it may seem as if we’re the only ones orchestrating events in our lives because we have the ability to think but I also think nature and the cosmic forces of our vast universe have their own way of orchestrating synchronicity or divine timing. Call it the universal intelligence.

I’m not a rockhound whatsoever; I started liking crystals & stones because of their healing properties.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that you’re never too old to get into crystals – everything happens at the perfect time. If you are drawn to crystals right now, there is probably a valid reason for it.

Graphic Design & Digital Art Inspiration from Alycia Rainaud✖️

I’m highly inspired by visuals whether it’s through art, graphic design, motion graphics, textures, nature’s patterns or crystals. Anything that’s visually striking and not only stimulates my regular vision but my third eye as well pretty much touches the inner depths of my occult soul.✨👁✨

And so that’s why I asked the lovely Alycia Rainaud to repurpose an image she created into the fantastic header you now see on the Metaphysical Vibes website. Something about that particular texture reminded me of striated crystalline structures like Black Tourmaline and how other crystals such Aquamarine, Labradorite or Tanzanite look just to name a few.

SOLD: Blue Tiger’s Eye Crystal Skull

Crystal skulls are carvings made out of crystal or stone – they may be realistic (like the one we have above) or humanoid. They can also be heads of powerful and magical creatures like unicorns and dragons. It is said that crystal skulls are much like the internet as they carry vast amounts of information from different places; some say they carry knowledge and wisdom from other star systems, some say they contain the consciousness of extraterrestrial beings, some say they hold the Akashic Records or some say they hold all of the above.

Whatever information and knowledge they hold, we strongly believe that they are here to teach us something.
