Gift of a Crystal

The small piece of quartz I found

The other day at the yoga retreat I was walking on the stony road leading to the house and found a small quartz crystal. I kept it in my pocket.

At the beginning of the retreat, because the room was full of participants, I placed my mat outside of the northern verandah door. Inside, near the doorway to the front verandah, there was a woman who had a large crystal in front of her mat. At some point during the session, I automatically got up and moved my mat to the eastern doorway, so that I was next to her. I noticed that she had many more crystals all around and on her mat.

During one of the rest periods, we got to talking. Turns out she is deeply into crystals and makes fantastic jewelry with them (some of which she was wearing). I showed her the little piece of quartz I had found and half-jokingly suggested that maybe the little quartz piece felt drawn to her crystals (its distant cousins) and wanted to be near to them—hence my getting up out of the blue and moving next to her.

Yesterday I got a great email from her with the message that she couldn't stop thinking of me and my crystal and she was compelled to make me a Quartz pendant as a gift. When she laid out her quartz points in front of her with the intention that one is for me, a particular Quartz popped out at her. She says it's the most sacred of all crystals, known as a Record Keeper. (Read more about Record Keepers here)

Amazing gift. Can't wait to receive it.

What a lovely story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can't wait to see your gift too!

Did YOU write about white feathers recently? one fluttered down on my suitcase as I waited for a shuttle at the airport yesterday to bring me home from Art and Soul retreat. I, who do not normally think of things like this as "signs" of anything did. ;-) An angel blessing after a VERY GOOD TIME/VISIT/in Portland...art and family.

I can't remember writing about white feathers, but ... I was going for a walk the other morning and a feather floated out of the blue and came straight to me. There was no wind to speak of and the way it was moving didn't seem like regular law of gravity, so I thought the same thing—Angel presence.

Glad you had a great time in Portland. Looks like a great place to be.
