I wanted to say “I’ve struggled with love my whole life”. But that doesn’t sound right. I think I should say, I’ve been hopeful for love my whole life. That feels more accurate. I won’t say I’ve had bad luck, or I’ve failed. I will say I have loved. I have loved deeply and I have loved often. I have fallen fast and hard. I have opened myself up to things that maybe weren’t my cup of tea to experience lots of beautiful people and lots of beautiful things.
Love comes to us in so many different ways. I am lucky to have so many wonderful friends that I love, family that I love, lovers that are still in my life that I continue to love…and of course the little love of my life, my kitten Ghost.
When I think about Love I also think about Pink topaz, which is associated with the heart chakra and promotes so many wonderful qualities pertaining to Love. Not only does it aid in attracting genuine love, not romanticized love, but it helps dissolve destructive tendencies such as obsessing over the wrong person or waiting for a distant person to come around.
Why have I not been wearing this everyday of my life!?!
I am pretty tied to my rutilated quartz and tourmaline. More seems excessive! I think the magic of the stones goes hand in hand with the intentions we set for ourselves. When I am ready to date again I won’t need a crystal to make the magic happen. I have a better idea of what I am looking for and I feel pretty certain that I can make some magic on my own.
