Musings

So this page is slightly different from the blog…this is where I will put my random thoughts related to the crystals and stones we have for sale here at Metaphysical Vibes. More personal and a lot shorter. It’s easier to share my thoughts in this format.

Definition of ‘musing’: 1 (adjective) absorbed in thought; meditative. 2 (noun) contemplation; reflection.

I really like this guy, he’s really chill and his sparkles are all natural: Chalcedony Black Amethyst. I’m also aware that minerals don’t have a gender but this one feels like a male to me.

Just like the word ‘soothing’, I also say ‘unique’ and ‘one of a kind’ a lot. Can’t help it, the crystals in my shop ARE unique and one of a kind. I think everyone who has a crystal shop will probably say that, because it’s true. I wish there were better words to describe them.

I really like this Botswana Agate stone. I wasn’t even trying to have a crystal shop yet in 2017, but I found myself buying a handful of these from a vendor in Joshua Tree. Their colors are on the cool spectrum and have a flow-y, trippy vibe to them. I know I say the word ‘soothing’ a lot but there’s no other appropriate word to describe a stone sometimes.

I brought this really cool Phantom Chlorite Quartz crystal to work with me today. I was reading Katrina Raphaell’s book “Crystal Enlightenment” and I just happened to flip to the Phantom Crystals section (pages 75-77). Here’s a mind-blowing excerpt:

“Phantom Crystals are a culmination of knowledge that was gained by the crystal in its own unique evolutionary cycles. It is possible to use these precious tools in meditation to learn to travel deep within the records of your own soul.”

Wow wow wow. She says some really deep stuff and it’s been resonating with me a lot more as of late.

If you ask me right now what my favorite crystal or stone from the shop is, it would be this beautiful Girasol Opalized Quartz stone. It is so soothing to hold and dreamy to look at. Whenever I hold it, I feel like “Wow, am I dreaming? Am I dreaming up this reality that I’m in right now?”

At my work, I currently have a polished Tiger Iron stone that keeps me company, sitting on my desk.


Last night, the site was down for who knows how long. I wasn’t able to access the hosting control panel on GoDaddy either…so upset and frustrated! But not enough to call them. Thankfully, I woke up and checked to see that the site was back up.

I’m waiting for my hosting to expire so I can finally move it.
