I was in Tucson with my husband the first weekend of February for a 3 day intense course on shamanism and stones with master Jeffrey Yuen who is am 88th generation Daoist priest along with being a Classic Chinese medicine doctor and so much more. Some may refer to this kind of teachings as “new age” but its actually simply the revival of ancient medicine (medicine that predates western medicine) which is being passed on and taught to people like my husband and I.
The bonus of this 3 day weekend, besides the teachings and wisdom of this course followed by the annual Tucson crystal and gem shows, was seeing my biological (maternal) aunt who lives in Phoenix and drove roundtrip to Tucson for dinner. Its the second time in my life physically seeing this woman in person who I happen to share so many of my features with. Being adopted and forced to identifying with the family I was “sold” too, was another profound healing moment of beautiful collective love that on a conscious and unconscious level, just works naturally and harmonically..
While at dinner, which was magical in itself, I saw sitting in front of us at a corner table someone who is CRYSTAL HUGE, FAMOUSE actually in the crystal healing business (Philip Permutt)..i kept impulsively staring at his wife trying to figure out from the angle if that was him or not, while i pulled up his Instagram picture and asked my husband if that man was the dude sitting over there..My husband confirmed what I had already figured, and suggested I go over and say hello..
My immediate response to anything and everything is NO, but he pushed for me to get up and go over there to say hello with the added encouragement of my aunt..so unlike myself, I got up and said FUCK IT and walked over to their table and apologized for the intrusion and thank them while talking a mile a minute for their work and beautiful wisdom that they share and spread for people like me..(i felt totally crystal COOL)
The next day (to this specific story) my husband and I happen to run into them again at the pueblo gem show in one of the rooms that was occupied by a famous brazilin crystal carver that had exquisite skulls and beautiful magical carvings..once again I found myself tonged tied and unable to formulate words out of sheer excitement as we were received with smiles, hugs and warm short conversation..it was the coolest thing to meet the man who tarot deck and books I have..
I’ve been trying (and its truly work) to really put myself more out there than I normally would..im actually very shy within the vocabulary of mixed swear words I use as distraction for listening to what I’m really saying and hesitant to approach people I feel are in a separate category than me… the truth is though seriously, this invisible category I put others in is just something imaginary I do to myself as a mechanism to remain small, because basically we are all in the same boat, rocking along our way..
I accepted an invitation (along with my husband) for a networking event this Thursday, next door to where I work as a manicurist after the owner asked the women I work with if they happen to know a “CRYSTAL HEALER”.. The event is called HEAL & MINGLE at naked fuel in West Bloomfield Michigan from 5 to 7pm for any one interested in coming to see me there this Thursday..I will have on hand a few of my crystal friends to feel and be greeted with the beauty of their crystal energy along with some Vitajuwel water bottles and a few custom crystal energy bracelets for sale..
I think part of the reason why I love to study so much is because it busies me from really going out there and being vulnerable with my craft while showing the world who I am..part of the healing journey is discovering the truth about yourself and utilizing the profoundness as gifts to spread and share with others who are looking to heal themselves..this is the fork in the road that the universe has taken me to and its either fate or destiny that will lead the way…peace love faith hope
