Blessings Serenity Willow, i found balance in understanding the energy of crystals. By using them i am able to focus on keeping my emotions in tune with me and not with the vibrations of others,i took a course in crystal healing as i have always been into my rocks as my daughter calls them lol ...by using the vibrations of the crystal i find it keeps me balanced. i never leave home without my rocks and what i carry or wear depends on my vibration on the day as well as where i am going or who i might see.
I also talk to the gods when it seems the world is full of negitive vibrations ,i then with intention put out possitive vibrations so the more sadness or pain i feel in the moment the more possitive energy i release, as i understand it Balance brings harmony, and i have come to understand that as an empath, i have the ability to take on the pain or negitive vibration but now days i replace it with possitive vibrations..just a smile can change anothers personal energy, costs nothing but a smile is a priceless gift and you can give it hundreds of times in a day
Blessed be !
