I have heard both sides of the story; it is good to use magic items that have been given to you, but it is also an advantage to use magic items that you have picked yourself due to feeling drawn to them.
Recently my sister bought a rose quartz pendulum as she was drawn to it. With saying this, I use an onyx pendulum that my mother gave me about 8 years ago and I believe it works greatly.
What are your thoughts? Do you believe that it is better to use magic items that have been given to you, or use magic items that you have felt drawn to?
Buying or receiving?
