    Amazing article! I am in a very similar place as Devi. I moved across country by myself to Houston as well. I identify with her confusion and need to find herself and her energy. Houston has many places to meditate as well as many places to enjoy the full moon with other likewise spirits. I was introduced to mediation and crystals about two years ago. I can honestly say that my life and purpose has never been clearer since pursing the journey into self-awareness. It’s funny to me at times when I tell my family back home that I am going to meditate or clear my crystals/chakras. They assume the move has changed me….it has…for the better. Lol. Self-awareness and knowing your purpose is LIFE. I am so grateful for this article as everyone uses something different to find their inner peace. Devi….I could feel your amazing energy through Kiah’s words. I wish you both love and light.

      I agree with you. I’ve never felt the sense of clarity I have now until I ventured into working with crystals. Even over the past week, I’ve had some things that happened while traveling that would have normally made me lose it or have a meltdown, but my green calcite (which I carry everywhere) has kept my at peace and has allowed me to think everything through rationally. My favorite combination is Jade and Citrine (for Abundance). Thank you Devi for sharing your journey with us. Many women go through the struggle of trying to find their purpose, while also being a wife, mother, friend and amazing career women. It’s such a balancing act.

        Hey Necole! I can definitely tell that you use crystals. I follow you on Snapchat and Twitter (dont have Instagram or FB)….and your energy is so uplifting, calming, and genuine. You are my cousin in my head. Lol. I absolutely love citrine. I keep Smoky Quartz assist in clearing away what no longer serves me…in all aspects of life. I also keep Red Harper with me to keep me grounded and stable. I have so many. Lol. I love the purity and peace it has brung me. I have never “Kanye Shruged” and said “I’ll meditate on it” so much in my life. Lol. Peace and love girly. I love your journey.

        Great article. I identify with the her saying “I wake up everyday feeling like I want to escape, but I have no idea where”. That is exactly what I’m feeling and I have no idea what to do.
        Necole, how did you start working with crystals? Any online resources you can recommend will be greatly appreciated!
        Thanks a million!

    Absolutely LOVED this article! I actually found t by accident. I was searching on google about astrology and I remembered xonecole had an article about it, and I clicked on it and this popped up! When I saw the title, I said Oh yes I have to read this because I recently started using crystals & I love it. I think God & the universe knew I needed to read this. Thank you for sharing this story. Kiah, you write beautifully.

    Check local crystal shops. Clean them with salt water and let them receive the energy from the moon or sun.

  17. Thanks! And I agree on so many things in regards to crystals and meditating. Having them on me has become second nature and it is nice to just grab one or two to hold for a minute throughout the day.

    This article came at a great time. I’ve been considering purchasing some crystals for a few months and now I know I definitely need to. I’ve been struggling with seasonal affective disorder since summer ended, and anybody that lives in NYC knows how it can be extra gloomy here sometimes which really affects my mood. Hopefully the crystals will help!

    Great article and great read. I feel the black community often looks at crystals as voo-doo, or just shaming the idea. One note for the writer, it’s Deepak Chopra not Chokra.
