Ever felt mysteriously drawn to a certain crystal or stone? It’s HIGHLY likely that the crystal you’re feeling drawn to represents an energy that you need in your life right now.
There’s a wonderful quote by the Persian poet and scholar, Rumi, that says, “What you seek, is seeking you.” In my experience of working with people and crystals, I’ve observed this to be true time and time again.
When there’s something in your life that feels like it’s missing or something that really needs your focus and attention, then often there’s a special stone that draws you in…almost calling to you, to support you in this work. If you’re seeking to heal or balance some aspect of your life, a helpful crystal companion will often appear at just the right time – showing you the path to transformation and wholeness. These crystals often come into your life to help you create rapid shifts in your well-being.
For example, for the first many years of my crystal journey, I just didn’t seem to connect with Rose Quartz at all. It’s not that I disliked the stone, it just didn’t really capture my attention and I thought it was a little boring. But after my grandmother passed away and I was processing a lot of grief and deeply missing her, I found myself drawn to Rose Quartz like a magnet. There was something so soothing and supportive about its energy and I connected with it in a very deep and meaningful way. I didn’t understand for a few weeks why it had suddenly captured my attention, but then I realized how much I was missing my grandma – her support, compassion, love, and care – and Rose Quartz came to my aid to help comfort and soothe me during a very difficult time.
I often hear from people who have had these experiences and then later feel sad when their crystal “doesn’t feel how it used to” or they feel like they just “don’t connect with the stone the same way.”
Does this sound familiar?
Well, in my experience, that’s because once the stone has done its job and the energy is no longer needed by you in the same way it was before, your connection to the stone (that feeling of being called to or drawn in by its energy) feels different. It may even feel like the connection no longer exists at all.
But don’t worry! This is a GOOD thing.
Feeling like this means most likely means that you’ve transformed and re-aligned the part of you that REALLY needed the supportive energy that the crystal was offering you. Now that you’ve created the needed shift, your crystal is either ready to do its thing all over again or to take a little rest.
I realized after working with Rose Quartz over the course of a few months, that a time came when I just didn’t feel as called to work with it as I had in the past. I was still very much grieving the loss of my grandma, but Rose Quartz had been such a helpful ally that it really helped me work through some of the toughest times. It became clear that I didn’t need that same level of support anymore and it was ok to let go of my connection to my Rose Quartz companions. This didn’t mean that my relationship with these stones was over because I knew I could always return to them if I found myself needing their support again.
So what should you do with your stones once the connection fades?
If you do still feel connected to the stone, even if it wasn’t as strong as when you were going through your big transformation, then you can hang onto it and keep it in your crystal healing toolkit. But if you want to pay it forward and share this energy with another person, you may like to consider giving the crystal as a gift and pass it along to someone else in need.
So, if you find yourself being drawn to a specific crystal – LISTEN! It’s likely for a very good (and deeply meaningful) reason.
