Why I Stopped Collecting Crystals (honest advice you should hear)

Why I Stopped Collecting Crystals (honest advice you should hear)

I stopped collecting crystals, tarot, and all things metaphysical for nearly two years. There were two huge reasons why, and as someone who was OBSESSED, this was a real struggle for me. But this is brutally honest advice I think you really need to hear if you also collect crystals, oracle and tarot decks.

    It’s so touching…..so true….but I am sure praying to Jesus will help a lot. Go to church, church will also help families issues.

  2. Maae S on September 5, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    I love this… I love my crystals and my tarot ect. But yes I understand what your saying. This is the trend lately SMH can be frustrating

    Like everything in life it takes balance. That is one of the big lessons in life in this duality dimension. I love my collections and use them all. Definitely don’t buy to just buy. I enjoy the entire process from buying to actually using. I do have a lot of oracle and tarot decks but I use them all. The two I don’t are on the shelves as aesthetic decor and might sell eventually. Everything is energy so a lot of items sitting not being used turns into stagnant dead energy. If your not moving them around and using them it’s going to make the energy in the room denser and heavier not lighter like this stuff should be doing for the room. Just my thoughts.

  4. Christine Harrison on September 5, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    We’re you not raised in a church atmosphere for inner peace and guidance? I use my crystals for trying to restore the body’s energy….. electronics can put your body’s electrical balance off….. that’s not spiritual, that’s just "mechanics". cell phones and other…..gadgets if you will…. do have earth made crystals or cells themselves…. and we keep them close to our bodies. You can help offset or rebalance with different crystals.

  5. ChooseCompassion on September 5, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Why are there links to buying crystals if you don’t use them anymore?

  6. mojo jojo on September 5, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    what aboit phonons.

  7. Shantra Hara on September 5, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    My girl I hope you read my comment,

    First you came to a truth realisation , but you must meditate ,You are right you don’t need anything to go inside your truth , crystals, cards, and anything are just helping tools to cross the river.

    They are meant to be used not the other way around but to know how to use them you need meditation and the best meditations or us Western people are Osho active meditation . Please give a look to them as I see some potential in you.

    You are so full of crap and now you’re dragging the purest and oldest form of spirituality. Giving us actual practitioners a bad outlook. You’re the problem.

  9. Athena on September 5, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    i agree with you I used to think a simple rock could help me but a rock won’t change your life it’s an object that can’t talk or move I now only collect rocks not as a oh it’s gonna change my life meaning more of an hobby now and it looks pretty, some look like earth flowers and etc and since I don’t like designer things I rather buy things that’s gonna make me happy for a bit. And for tarot I also agree I used to obsess because I wanted to try to take control over my life but to be honest life is unpredictable a card won’t tell you what’s gonna happen even if it worked for you once or twice ever notice when you’re in a reading they say things that alot of people go through but you think it’s speak to you most bc you don’t believe others go through the same thing as you? if you’re reading this you’re not alone start changing your life by yourself starting with how you think, I’m also saying this as a reminder to myself have an amazing day/night remember change starts with slowly changing how you think and getting out of your comfort zone not by a spell not by a reading and not by a rock!

    Beautiful journey.

  12. Farhad Amon on September 5, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Greetings, that is your lesson and understanding. I am in my early 60s and had 2 hart attacks and died for 4 min. Look inside yourself in a quite place and ask yourself to show you the way.
    I am that I am, period. Blessing to all of you.

  13. Μαρία Λεοντάκη on September 5, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Hello, i’m new with all this. I have ahead of me a difficult road , and for some reason every night in my sleep I see a moonstone, so i’m in a search to find the exact same moonstone of my dreams. I never cared about the stones , never thought about them, i always believed that you can do everything without them. But now , i’m not sure about it. My life has big holes and i lost much. So wish me best luck to find the on of my dreams , cuz i hear it in my mind all the time and see it even with open eyes, i know i sound crazy. (sorry my English are not the best)

  14. Celtic Cook on September 5, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    It is up to you.

  15. Chrono on September 5, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    Material possessions is not bad. Attachment is bad. If these crystals become a crutch for you then they will lower yourself in the long run. If you can learn to enjoy them without being attached to them then you will raise yourself.
    Just say to yourself "if these crystals have the ability to enhance my life then so be it" And then give it no more thought and enjoy wearing them without thinking too much about it. But if you are constantly obsessing over them and thinking about "What they should be doing" then you are creating an attachment. Which will bring you into a lower state of being.

  16. Michelle Hawkins on September 5, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    I Love Crystals and Minerals and Rocks. And I Think I Enjoy Looking At Them and I Know They Have An Energy As Does All Things. For Me Different Colors Of Things Have A Certain Mood Or Atmosphere. I’m Into Plants and Music and A Variety. I’m Into Relaxing From A Busy Day. Sea Shells Relax Me and Remind Me of The Oceans. But Your Inner Self Is More Than Things. Learning to Love Yourself Is A Journey and A Lifetime of Experiences. But I Know For Me I Like Crystals and Stones And The Ones That You Feel Calling You Is A Vibes Thing.

  17. Ronnie Rabell on September 5, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Your mistake "all astrology……." idk why women believe anything in astrology, mysticism, tarot cards and etc….. its stupid. Very stupid! Because it’s nothing to do with truth… and stop using the word "universe" out of context. The universe doesn’t care about silly beliefs or pitty me parties…. the universe is a physical object that it’s violent, chaotic, hot, cold, electrical, mass, light, momentum and energy. Nothing to do with this unicorn "metaphysical" fake bs you kids believe in

  18. Michelle on September 5, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    If you believe in God, you know that crystals are a false idol that we should not have in our possession. If you don’t believe in God, well, that only leaves one other thing that will enter your life whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not. There’s no in between. I’d rather have God in my life than leave the door open for evil spirits. Sounds harsh, but life is harsh. Choose God. I’m praying sincerely for you all in Jesus’s name.

  19. Deerheart on September 5, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    I think that nearly ALL of you are shallow and un-spiritual, because most of those crystals came from questionable sources, including child labor and slave labor.

    You want to connect "with nature", but don’t even know where that crystal is from? Why worry about if it’s good for people, when it is definitely NOT good for SOME people?

    Besides, it would mean more to find your own, in nature. There are publically-open mines where you can either mine your own, or at least be guaranteed that you are buying from a sustainable, fair-labor source.

  20. Ashley Lewis on September 5, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    I know exactly what your saying happiness comes from within not from without

  21. spannycat waffles on September 5, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    This is really interesting. I do own 1 tarot deck and 1 oracle deck that I use everyday. I use cheap playing cards too for cartomancy. I have 1 singing bowl that I use everyday. I own 16 Crystals. I would say I regularly use all of them most days. These are:
    2 cleansing disks
    1 root chakra crystal.
    2 heart chakra crystal
    1 third eye chakra crystal
    2 crown chakra crystals
    1 Moonstone for lunar work.
    2 extra Crystals for sleeping.
    1 divination pendulum
    1 grounding crystal
    1 focus/concentration crystal.
    1 throat chakra Crystal.

    I have Nag champa which I use often and Sandalwood incense which I don’t use often because there’s a shortage. I have Palos Santo sticks and Blue Sage mixed with Eucalyptus bundles and I use those often. I have 4 candles and I use 3 of them but that’s because my red dragon’s blood candle is not cheap.

    I would say that I use all of my metaphysical tools almost daily and I don’t feel the need to buy more. Maybe I might get crystals for my sacral and solar plexus chakras but honestly I just use my other crystals lol.

  22. john s on September 5, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    The God honest truth to why so many people became witches it’s because of all of the influx of which TV series online. I have studied it for a long time but the more witch shows that came out. The more people started calling themselves which is especially young women

  23. mojo jojo on September 5, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    just thst you were an obsessive collector doesnt mean crystsls font have healing energy…they do

  26. Commander Kitten on September 5, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    This is a great video. You seem Hella young but are indeed speaking some wisdom here. We don’t require objects to be our best selves. I actually bought crystals for myself today. My first time. I was given some, a Chakra set. But I felt it was important to include a few more because I’d like to dabble in color magic. One of each color will b fine for me. But I agree that you shouldn’t buy things just to POCESS more things

  27. jeffstarrunner1 on September 5, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Same for drugs, any experience with God’s spirit isn’t precluded by a lack of some material substance… that being said I’m not advocating witchcraft either obviously.

  28. Billion Aeris on September 5, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Why did you stop singing?

  29. Tuğ Çe on September 5, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    İ swear the way you talk feels like therapy. İ would like to say…i did a research on the internet and…these things can be useful İF you know how to use it… Like, for example… İn the past some.crystals are used when someone was bitten by a snake… A specific crystal would be crushed to dust and applied on the bitten area i guess…second..these ‘rocks’ contain certain minerals..which plants and our bodies contain too. Concerning the fact our skin can act like a sponge, sucking the material you touch, it is important to know what you are touching and when…like for example, if i am missing in my body that causes diziness, i need to touch the stone that contains the mineral that feeds the missing part jn my body that causes diziness. Then you need to find the right food to eat, with thar particular mineral, and good sleep, and everything else that helps you balanxe your life..like being able to ‘fight’ to find solutions in stead of just crying for 6 hours without any hope. İt is good though, to find out that crying only doesnt help, but it does show what you find important to reach in your life at that moment. And even if you find the right cryystal to touch, you must also know how long to touch it…cz too much of a certain mineral can cause another issue again…maybe thats the reason they say, eat as colorful as you can (bcz no one can measure him or herself daily with the needed tools).. last thing..feeding also happens with eyes. That means, you see something nice, it makes you feel happy, when you look at dirt it makes you feel down. So using as decor would be a nice idea…but then again, u get used to beauty and take it for granted and dont feel the same joy when you look at it as the first moment you bought it. So what i do is…i put them in my closet…whenever i feel i need to see something beautfil, i grab the ctystals and look at them and realise again woow they are so beautiful, and ‘feed’ my ‘soul?’ with it…and i only see its beauty if i program myself that im gonna see it, otherwise nothing is beeautoful for me, when i look at it with a negative mindset. And im the most happy when i cleaned my body and house, and took care of any chores, and been kind to myself and people aroind and even my pets. When i act kind, im happy . Maybe thats the conclusion. So for the people out there .hope was clear for you…and just wash your armpit if you smell it…and wash your body every day..and your hair..no it isnt bad, bcz if you dont wash your heair everyday, it smells bad and youcfeel down…but they have to convince you all that itnis bad to wash it every day cz guess what..how else can they sell dry shampoo and other stuff to make money ?

  30. Nadine LeGrand on September 5, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Yes, you don’t need anything. Crystals are amplifiers. The clear quartz and amethyst are the only ones you can have around you to amplify positive frequency. It will also amplify negative frequency as well. It’s like bringing nature into your home having it close around you. Just like plants, water, fire, etc.

  31. Muhammad Rashid on September 5, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Here I agree with these crystals has effectiveness depends upon you beliefs but totally relying in these crystals and stones make you actually depressed because you’re not sure that why you depend an these crystals and not meditate yourself from the environment its only you to yourself to reshape yourself, just pick your favourite crystal and study their abilities and totally apply on yourself practically, here these crystals are working like

  32. Lavendeer 201 on September 5, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    I’ve had the same experience in college… like that gave me goosebumps how accurate that was to me

  33. CRIMSONCOLLECTIVE on September 5, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    I once found a gem while on a hike with friends and swore up and down it was meant for me but sure enough I misplaced it and no longer possess it, but I think that was a lessons in itself, you can’t rely on materialistic objects to get through life

  34. luke stevenson on September 5, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    I can say I haven’t found anything in it, I got thousands of crystals, I just calved a 6kg chunk of malachite, for me it was all ghosts and goblins.

    I went everywhere and spoke to everyone on that journey of self discovery, I found only one person that gave me any real truth,
    He was a Colossus consistent, and what he was saying was unassailable.

    He gave me the answers to all of those questions, but they wasn’t the answers I wanted.

  35. Sara on September 5, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    I only have black Tourmaline and yoni egg rose quartz, thats just enough

  36. ༒Small Star on September 5, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    People keep looking for their truth in external things, never realising it was within them all along. I know it sounds corny but everything you seek is already within you. That annoyed me as a 20 something year old when I first heard it, but now that Im in my 30s I can 10000% verify its the truth. Look inwards. Everything else is just chasing after wind.

  37. Lolo Reese on September 5, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    I spent over 600 last night on a live tic Tok scoop haul. I wish I had found this a few days ago. Thank you

  38. satrina on September 5, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    Clearly the intentions behind having these tools will play a part in your soul evolution. Material things won’t get you there. Your self, your soul is what will. I choose stones based off what calls to me. Stones are like medicine. I have a ring I still can’t remember the name of the stone even though people tell me it more than one time.

  40. Nature healers on September 5, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    I had finally realized it was because I was trying to fill the deep void I had in me for many years.
