hello all, i have been practincing magic for about a year and and i have been a member of this site shortley after i have commited to practing (mostly studying) all i could about about magic.im not sure what my path is but i know i like. simply picking and choosing from paths im currently learning about and incorperating them into my own.
Only about a month ago i picked up the practice of working with stones and crystals. i started off with reading online and using webiste as refrences and eventually bought the scott c book on stones, crystals and metals. once i gotten the basics of working with stones i began purching stones here and there working on a small collection to work with.
i began to with carrying one stone at a time for one to two days at a time, checking to see how their properties can affect or inlfuence my energy. at that point i learned that one must attune or activate stones and crystals and i was told it was done through meditation.
i decided to use clear quarts crystal to be the first crystal i would activate. i made a necklace with the quartz and wore it every day for about a week and every chance i had i focused on the crystal and meditated. the craziest thing was, the stone had activated while i was on the bus reading about herbs on my phone.
i knew it had activated and i was attune with the crystal because all of a sudden i was able visaulize it in my had perfectly and see and a very strong beams of light illuminating
from the center of the stone.
from that point i notice subtle differnces and good fortune since then. this was my first experience with attuning with stones and wont be the last :))
