Five years ago, almost to the day, I received my first crystal. It was a piece of tumbled Labradorite that was placed in a macramé necklace. I chose it myself, after going into Carnelia Stones & Crystals (which was owned by Martine Babineau at the time) and asking, “What crystal will help me gain a sense of clarity and direction?” Martine didn’t specify any crystal, but rather pointed me towards an area of the store and let me choose “the one” for myself and my intention.

Since we were approaching the end of 2012 there was a lot of talk about ascension which I didn’t really understand at the time. Many people thought that the world was either going to end or going to change drastically overnight… specifically on December 21, 2012 (the day that the Mayan calendar predicted the end of a cycle).

I didn’t know if I believed in those cataclysmic claims, but I knew that I wanted to shift my life.

At the time, I was working full-time in the accounting department of a motorcycle dealership. This was a position that had wanted to be in for a long time and after a couple years of being there I thought “Is this IT?”. As much as I enjoyed it, there was still a part of me remained unfulfilled.

Recently, after arriving back from Sedona, Arizona, there have been some changes happening in my life. I can still hear my friend EagleSpirit saying “Shift happens when you visit Sedona.” Major shifts that made me feel uncomfortable and have left me questioning the direction I was going. But, if these changes were pleasant, would I even question my direction at all?

Stress, uncertainty, and even confusion clouded my mind and my heart. I felt stuck. “Change is good”, so they say. But why does it feel so uncomfortable? What did I have to learn from this lesson?

Trying to gain some understanding of the situation, and of myself within this dilemma, I turned to my Crystal Ally Cards and gave myself a reading. The reading spoke to me, but one cards stood out the most. This was the card that represented the supportive energy that was going to help me get through this. It was the card of Hope.
