Crystals and My Journey to Healing

In 2012 I reconnected with my high school friend Dennis who to my surprise turned out to be my soul mate. We immediately hit it off and knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. In the midst of this wonderfulness I was also dealing with my mother's illness, stage 4 breast cancer. In 2013 my mother's cancer took a turn for the worse and her health began to decline rapidly. Dennis and I got engaged in April of 2013 and I knew that if I wanted my mother to be a part of this important day I did not have a lot of time. So we planned a small wedding in 4 months and my mother got to be a part of it. In January of 2014, my mother (my best friend) lost her battle to cancer. It was the worst time of my life.

After losing my mother I fell into the deepest of depressions. It was something I could not even put into words. I seeked help in so many places but nothing helped. A few months prior I had gone to a small little shop where I bought a clear quartz crystal that I kept in my bedroom. I had a strong connection to it and knew that it dispelled negative energy. I decided one day that I was just going to look into shops in my area that might have crystals. I found this amazing shop in my area and I was hooked.

For months and months after my mother's passing I had been taking Ambien for Insomnia. I could not shut my brain. After finding crystals I added a medium sized piece of Amethyst to my night stand. I was still skeptical but decided to give it a try. Amethyst changed my life. After a few days I was no longer taking medication and I haven't taken it since. This is just one of the many stories I have about crystals.

I knew that I couldn't keep crystals all to myself and that I needed to create pieces that could help others like they had helped me. This is where my idea came to start The Healing Gem. My happiness comes when I'm able to create pieces that others love and cherish. My heart is still broken because of the loss of my mother and I miss her everyday but crystals have made the healing process so much more better. They truly are powerful.
