“As I emerged from the rainforest, I spotted my first crystal on the banks of the _______________ river. Its blue-green hue immediately bestowed a sense of calmness upon me. I could feel that it was clearing energy blockages and balancing my Yin and Yang energies. I know, I thought, I will call it _______________________. Upon returning home, I decided to spend some time with a friend who lived in a village in north-east part of the U.S.—a village quite unremarkable except for the fact that I kept seeing stones shimmering with small double-terminated crystals every time I’d go for a walk through the village. I took them to my Japanese energy teacher who claimed they helped him with his Reiki attunements. They helped me gain clarity on how much to charge him for them :) I hear that they still regularly appear there and that they are becoming quite expensive, probably because of the way I named them -- _______________ ___________________. Soon after, I received a letter inviting me to spend a month in Africa and live with a Masai tribe who needed my expertise. Since I was greatly appreciative of their culture and customs, I decided to go and see what it was all about, since the letter didn’t provide many details. After a long and tiring travel, we arrived there and my host handed me a beautiful shimmering dark blue, almost purple, partly translucent crystal as a welcome gift, saying that it assists with spiritual exploration and inner journeys. That night, after a group meditation around the fire, I began sharing the visions I received. I felt they were deeply connected to the spiritual knowledge of ancient indigenous tribal cultures and were particularly important for all of us in that moment. I named, it, in honor of the future name of their country, _____________________. My mission there was over, regrettably, way too soon, and when it was time to leave I received another gift – a light blue crystal they said would keep me safe during storms at sea. Didn’t really believe that, until the storm hit and our ship [ . . . . here the words in the diary are blurred by water damage] . . . we emerged alive and safe and I vowed to get more of it somewhere soon. I also noticed that it made me less judgmental and more tolerant of my travel companions. It calmed my sore throat as well, which was a nice bonus. Since I forgot the original name, I named it ________________ for obvious reasons. And Latin is my passion, even though no one speaks it any more. Can’t wait to come home . . . . [to be continued]
