Are you uncomfy coming out of the “crystal closet“?
Afraid others will think you’re weird, not get you or think that you’re just totally out to lunch?
“What is all this sage burning, crystal collecting, essential oil rubbing wacko-ness?”
I get it. It’s hard when everyone around you is not doing the same thing.
And they don’t really get it.
This 1 time I went to the doctor’s office & had my doc probing around with her stethoscope to check my heartbeat and had to explain to her what those hard lumps were protruding from my bra. She had a complete & total poker face while I told her that “those were my crystal companions for the day’s energies that I wanted to infuse into my electromagnetic field”.
She didn’t say another word about it & went on to the next thing.
THAT was uncomfy even for me (**I’m not going to pretend that “Oh, I’m so confident, I don’t have a problem telling ANYONE about my crystals“. Just being real with ya here), but I just put it out there anyway. **I have no idea what she made of it, but I’m hysterical laughing right now thinking about it again & typing this out!**
I even find it difficult to just explain why I don’t like to use a microwave or the regular laundry detergent that everyone else is using. That is, unless I know someone really well & don’t mind lovingly antagonizing them (like my parents). It’s also so much easier to discuss with someone who is obviously receptive & wanting to learn. But when they’re not receptive…well…having to explain yourself in these situations ain’t my idea of a good time. It’s usually met with resistance or a tinge of ridicule.
Am I right?
1. Confidence through Science
I do have a healthy amount of confidence around discussing what I do when I’m directly asked or it’s unavoidable. And I know that’s b/c I can explain the science behind how & why the crystals work.
And this is what I teach to students in my courses as well.
2. Make Peace with Who You Are
A while back I wrote a blog post about being me, the real me.
Oh, I felt quite un-easy writing that at the time.
But contrary to what I thought, the real me was welcomed with open arms. That blog post went viral and as you can see from how many comments I got on it, struck a very real chord with the Crystal Hottie Community. 🙂
So my advice now is just own it!
And guess what? You’d be surprised how many people come out of the woo-woo closet themselves when they know its safe to talk about this shizzle with you!
I had lots of experience with this while I was still a science teacher.
You would think those in the academic community would be very closed off to this sort of thing, but when it was last resort time on many situations, many in that community (even a school police resource officer) came to me to ask what crystals & other energetic work they could do to remedy their problem.
3. Find a Community
Being in a group of other like-minded people who are also cuckoo-for-crystals can be so empowering & nourishing b/c they’re all going through the same stuff as you. We need each other b/c being part of a community also gives us confidence & strength!
Yeah, this may also mean that you need to spend less time (or remove yourself completely) from hanging with people who are holding you back & won’t accept who you are.
Try to find a group either in person or online that have these 3 things going for them (b/c not all groups do!):
- members are supportive
- offers motivation & inspiration
- holds a positive vibe (no gossiping, negativity is frowned on & moderated, etc.)
Finding a group like this does WONDERS for allowing you to be YOU and encouraging you to grow into your full potential. It can be an in-person group or even a virtual online one.
I can help you with #1 & #3 from above. And I’ve seen #2 come naturally as a result of providing #1 & #3 to my students in my Certified Crystal Healer Course.
Not to say you cannot achieve those things on your own. You most certainly can! All you have to do is put your mind & energy towards it.
But if you’d like me to help along on this path, my course will be opening up for enrollment very soon & this will be the last enrollment for 2016. Enrollment will only be open for a few days so if you’d like to take a look, check it out here.
Are you ready to fling those doors open, Crystal Hottie? Maybe you already have and you’re merrily cruising along the glitter highway. Or, maybe you’ve been looking for a tribe like ours? A Crystal Community to sparkle, shine, transform & grow with? Where do you stand right now? Tell us in the comments below.
