Empaths often get caught up in all the shiny things. We start accumulating sparkly crystals, feed our tarot & oracle deck addiction, and stock up on Palo Santo and sage. But I think it’s important to remember that no matter how many crystals you use, how many pendulums or tarot decks you have, or how often you smudge, it all comes down to you and your intention.
Let me give you an example. You might wish to bring peace and love into your life, so you wear a bracelet or pendant with rose quartz. It’s not the rose quartz that brings the peace and love to you, it’s your intention in using the crystal that attracts that energy. Sure, the rose quartz will help by boosting that delicious love energy, but it alone does not hold the power. YOU are the secret ingredient. Before you approached that quartz it was just sitting there on your shelf, powerless. It does not ‘come alive’ until you decide to use it. That first thought that you have to use it, is actually the very beginning of your “intention”!
Next level thought: Let’s say you wanted to manifest that love and peace, but forgot to put that rose quartz jewelry on. You’re at the office and can’t do anything about it…. or so you think! Simply use your intention to draw that loving energy to you. You can even call upon the rose quartz ‘remotely’ for assistance – because energy transcends time and space.
To quote my favorite ‘witch’: “You had the power all along, my dear.”
Peace and blessings to you!
