I was speaking with a customer the other day at Rubi Hollow (the crystal shop that I run with my daughters), and she was distraught over the fact that she was using her crystals the ‘wrong way’.
An expert had said not to put them in the window. Someone else said not to put them in a glass case. Someone else said that they MUST be separated by colour to be effective.
What Happened to Using Our Innate Intuition?
It got me thinking. How many times do we quiet the voice of our own intuition because someone who’s ‘smarter’ than us said something that conflicts?
A freaking lot. That’s how many.
We Know, We Really Do
I tell this story a lot so you may have heard it before but it is a good lesson for all of us. When children come into my office to experiment with essential oils and choose the ones that will help them the most, it is fascinating to watch. There’s no second-guessing. The SECOND they smell THE ONE they stop smelling the others and hand it to me to package up. They just know.
And you know what? We know it too.
Really, we do.
Somewhere inside of us is a still, quiet voice that whispers the answer. We just need to tune in.
Kids Have Got It Figured Out
Another interesting fact about kids choosing essential oils? 99% of the time they are going to choose Wild Orange oil. Wild Orange is uplifting yet soothing, and\can, therefore, be used in times of sadness and despair to lift mood and many people use it for sleep – which always surprises me. BUT… they are listening to their intuition and voila! It helps them to sleep!
So whether you’re choosing essential oils or crystals or – well don’t get me started on breathwork. Like literally. If you’re breathing, you’re doing it right.
Don’t Make EASY Things Hard
Try not to get all caught up in ‘doing it right’ and instead just come into your body and ask “What do I need right now?”
If it’s the smoky quartz, grab that.
Need to bathe with your crystals under the moonlight? Do that.
Or, if you need Peppermint oil (usually uplifting) to help you sleep, use that.
There are literally no right and wrong answers and no one person has all of the answers, and It’s time we start tuning to our own wisdom and using it the way it was intended.
