I was never really that much into crystals. I’ve always been into working with plants and herbs, angels and divination methods such as oracle cards and rune stones and just good old-fashioned channeling without any use of of accessories. I have however always had a fascination with elementals and have communicated with elementals.
If you are reading this article it’s safe to assume that you know what elementals are, are aware of elementals in your surroundings, and may have had contact with elementals. I mean we’ve all had contact with elementals but I mean intentional contact with elementals. Crystals are also a part of the elemental realm, but somehow I was never really a crystal person. Many of my fellow intuitives have entire altars covered in crystals. Mine is pretty simple compared to some of the elaborate alters I’ve seen. I have some raw quartz and some sage and some candles and feathers and my oracle decks, rune stones, and a few decorative ornaments such as angels, dolphins and wolves and that’s pretty much it.
Apart from the raw quartz that I collected on a hike while still living in the Arizona desert (with permission from Gaia) the only crystals that I have are pieces of jewelry that I have only recently acquired in the last two or three years. All of these pieces of jewelry have been gifted to me. There’s only one piece of crystal jewelry that I have ever bought myself, and one of the few crystals that I have had for a very long time, actually the only one I’ve had for a very long time. And that is a tiny polished amethyst that I bought at a psychic fair when I was barely 17 years old. They say that the crystals you buy or receive as gifts are meant for you and nobody else, they carry energetic puzzle pieces that match you alone and nobody else. If a crystal ends up in your possession it’s because it chose you. Crystals are alive just like any other elemental that’s out there, just like the trees are alive, just like the ocean is alive, everything that is and has been part of nature carries the essence of source energy within it. Over the years I have worked with all kinds of energies, from nature spirits and spirit animals to archangels to cosmic guides and past and parallel life soul aspects.. it never dawned on me that I had never truly worked with my crystals, or ever considered communicating with them the way that I communicate with all my other spiritual guides, not until a few days ago.
These last couple of months I started wearing that little polished amethyst again on my necklace. I felt pulled towards it again and even talked about it in a moon circle that I am a part of. How after not wearing it for a very long time, I suddenly started wearing it again and how it felt right at the time. Like it was assisting me on some level. About a week ago while wearing the crystal around my neck I saw an image in my mind’s eye of the amethyst elemental. She showed herself to me and asked me to draw her portrait. I have been drawing all kinds of beings and now she requested a portrait so I was more than happy to. A few days later another image showed itself in my mind’s eye. I was absentmindedly doing laundry when suddenly I saw the amethyst fall off of the necklace on the street while I was riding my bike. The necklace still intact, even the ring that attached the stone to the chain was still there, just the crystal itself, was gone. I saw the exact street and instantly felt panic and resistance. I pushed the idea out of my head and immediately heard “it’s meant to happen, I have done my work with you and you will not find me again if you look for me, I will return to the earth, you will get a new amethyst and it will be a higher aspect of me which will suit you better in the future” so again I pushed the idea out of my head feeling lots of resistance and I went on with my day, doing laundry and other things, forgetting all about the little vision I had..
Fast forward 2 hours later to when I arrived at my client’s house, I look down and the amethyst is no longer there. The necklace was still intact, even the ring that attached the stone to the chain was still there, just the crystal itself, was gone, just like I was shown in my mind’s eye barely 2 hours earlier. I was so mad at myself for not listening to my intuition! “Maybe I could have prevented it if I just listened” I immediately thought. But the little voice in the back said “nope, this was meant to happen, you will get a new one and it will serve you better”.
I checked on my way back too though, of course I didn’t find it. And of course I heard it too saying “you won’t find me anymore, I’ve gone back to the earth, you don’t need me anymore” and I felt resistance again and anger. Then it said “why would you hold on to the old when you can embrace the new”.
This experience has been one that was needed. I have gained a whole new perspective on communicating with crystals and I am so thankful to source for providing me with this experience, and grateful for the time I was allowed to spend with the little polished amethyst and very grateful that she actually said goodbye before she left!
