Today was a tough day, lots of tension and emotions.
I could use a good meditation and it just so happened I received a package in the mail today with a couple of crystals I ordered. They are amethyst points that can be used for directing energy.
I learned this at a workshop I attended recently and it was the first time I felt the energy of a crystal. We learned to hold one of these crystals in each hand. The effect depends on the direction of the points. If you hold the point towards the elbow in the left hand and pointing away from you in the right hand, you will get an energy flow. If you direct both points towards yourself you build up energy and with the points directed away from you, you let energy flow away. I tried this and I seem to feel the difference. Also, the amethyst is very conducive to meditation. It was a nice session.
