I am a rock-hound. I can't help it. I think it goes hand-in-hand with being an avid gardener. I am forever picking up rocks off the ground, and have them all over the house and yard. I also have a crystal collection that keeps growing.
The above pic is a weathered-board tray that I keep most of my smaller crystals on, along with some assorted tools I use for workings. I always have multi coloured mini-tapers on hand, and the grey and white banded object behind them is my wild turkey feather for smudging.
In the blue and green pouch at the lower part of the picture, is one of my pendulums. In the center, there is also a little Mayan temple I brought back from Mexico, and a Egyptian glass bottle that I now have some protection oil in.
I have my other supplies spread around my little suite, but this tray gets much use, and I'm forever picking out a crystal or two to carry with me throughout the day depending on what energy I am needing, or how I'm feeling.
With my energy being 'funny' this last month or so, I've definitely gravitated toward the more protective and grounding stones. Some of these include:
Not everyone is a rock person. My one neice picks up every rock she sees. The other one is a tree-hugger (literally,) and picks up flowers that have dropped from their stems, or dandelions and puts them in her hair.
Is there something out there on the earth that you pick up and hold on to? Do you gather items from your yard, walks and trips and bring them into your home? I find it fascinating how we build homes to protect ourselves and then spend our time bringing Nature in!
