I will never forget this amazing experience I had with my first crystal. It was 2003 and I was going through a very rough time. I was questioning “What’s it all about”, “Why am I here” and all that. I decided to go to a Crystal Shop for some reason – I had just started to take Diplomas in Complimentary Therapies – I walked into a shop in a local town and thought that nothing seemed to attract me and headed for the door to leave. The shop assistant suddenly said as I opened the door “Can I help you”. I turned around to look at him and saw a basket with stones on the counter. I walked up to the basket and immediately saw a green crystal and asked what it was. I bought it, came home, put it on my bedside table, after cleansing it, and could not sleep, kept waking up every hour. The same thing happened the next night. Then on the third night I decided it must be the crystal, so I moved it a lot further away, and slept. I thought that was odd, so I decided to meditate with it before I went to college. Yes, I had a vision of my journey to college and was shown my normal route was closed and police were turning everyone around to go another route. Like a TV screen it showed me the other way I had to go, and I remember taking specific note of this route, because I had panic attacks at that time, and could not drive in strange routes.
By 6pm when I left for college I had forgotten all about this vision, and headed off on my journey and suddenly, about 3 minutes before I could turn into the road of the college, it was closed and police were there turning everyone around. I panicked immediately and thought I have to get home, and then remembered the vision. I calmed down and tried to run the vision through my mind, even though my heart was thumping. I followed the instructions of the vision, and 10 minutes later arrived at the college gates.
