I started writing this summer because I’ve gotten to a point where the depression and anxiety that I had started to make me worried. I was so worried about what I’d do or feel and so, I started writing. Writing here has made me so positive and feel so free.
Now that I’m going back to school in less than a week, I realized that I might fall back into only habits or feelings. I started looking into ways to keep my energy positive.
I am a very spiritual person. I’m all about meditative practices, being one with the environment, trusting in the universe. All that Jazz. So, it wasn’t much of a stretch when I decided to look into Crystals and Herbs. If I’m completely honest, this all stemmed from me rewatching Charmed on Netflix and getting curious about being a witch. There, I learned about the benefits that certain crystals and herbs had and how they can alter your energy.
I started buying some crystals on my own. These are them and the benefits:

I found this blog with a list and got carried away. I found pretty much all of my info on Tumblr.
I found that I can buy them on wish.com but since I haven’t received any as of yet, I won’t say it’s a credible source. I actually read that it wasn’t but I want to test it myself.

I’ve been learning about the elements and just all things and aspects to this “witchy” business. I’m so fascinated. We don’t judge here so don’t judge. I just want to find a way to keep mine out of those dark places that I tend to get into.
