I hope that you will come to love and respect the spirits of these minerals and plants. As a healer, I use them almost every day to balance energies, to heal mind, body and soul. They were placed on this Earth by our Creator for you, and for us all. My personal perspective is that spirituality, and rocks, and plants, and pure water are synonymous, I can't have one without the other! These are the sacred gifts from the Earth Mother, the most powerful medicinal tools that are available to enhance that connection with Spirit.
May you be blessed.
