My Introduction to “Soul Searching” & Crystals

While on my way to and laying by the beach in Kauai I was reading a book I highly recommend called “The Soul Searcher’s Handbook: A Modern Girl’s Guide to the New Age World” by Emma Mildon.

I am pretty sure it has been mentioned before on my blog in previous posts (this one and this one).

Her book goes into a holistic thought on life. This is one of my favorite passages of the introduction.

“I like to think of a holistic life as a good life… what we think, do, say, eat, practice, believe in, and act on are all reflections of how we choose to live our lives. A holistic approach to your body, mind and soul cannot only transform your health and well-being, but it can also benefit your relationships; make you more patient, understanding and loving; and generally help you to become more awake as a person in your day-to-day life, which will result in more love, energy, and abundance all around.”

Mildon reoccurringly references a “woo-woo scale” which embodies how weird, holistic, spiritual or even educated each topic she talks about is.

For example, meditation and yoga are a 3/10 on the “woo-woo” scale, breathing is a 0/10 and crystals are an 8/10.

(I really hope this all makes sense… If not, read her book!)

But you know what?

Crystals have always interested me so I decided to have it be my first crazy “woo-woo” experience with soul searching.

Recently I purchased the “Year of You” crystal bundle from Light Love and Lace since I have been very curious about all things spiritual.

Side note:

If you didn’t know, the creator of Light Love and Lace, is Marissa Lace on Youtube! She has been all about her “Year of You” series and I fell in love with it. Make sure to check her channel out.

“Year of You” is all about loving yourself, learning about yourself, believing and trusting yourself, knowing that you are amazing, focusing on yourself etc.

Ok now back to the point of this post…

So when her shop named a bundle after a series on her channel I love so much, I knew right away I had to do my own little “Year of You” and purchase it!

Right now I have them sitting next to my bed on my nightstand and they just bring me joy!

If you are interested in crystals check out this post!

Erica Stolman, the brilliant woman behind the style blog Fashionlush, wrote a beautiful, informative and educational piece called “Crystal Powers 101” where she interviewed an expert from Energy Muse and talked all about crystals!

If you want more information on crystals, definitely check out her post.

Hopefully I will be able to do a more in depth post when I learn more myself!

Xoxo, Chandler

P.s. I recently got a session with Marissa Lace herself to talk all things crystals, year of you, spiritual plan, aromatherapy (a different post all together), a crystal list that will help you with goals etc. and you better know I will do a post all about it!
