I always have. When I was a girl, I collected rocks in shoe boxes which I shoved under my bed. Full disclosure: I also did this with salamanders.
Recently, I was at a (free!!) Crystals Workshop (at the Portsmouth Regional Hospital! I know!) and I had an epiphany. Crystals are just fancy rocks! Rocks that come in beautiful shapes and colors!
So, now, I love crystals, too.
I read that sleeping with certain crystals near your bed (like clear quartz, rose quartz, amethyst, others) could facilitate having more vivid dreams and promote dream recall.
So, I put some on my nightstand. Clear quartz, rose quartz, a moonstone, and pink something or other.
At first, nothing happened. Then I kicked it up a notch: I started using different combinations of crystals. Moved them around a little. Moved them closer to my bed.
And then I forgot about them.
On the third night, I realized that I’d had vivid dreams (with bright colors! and some of my dead relatives showed up!) 3 nights in a row. I also had 3 dreams that I could remember from the same night.
I’m wondering about the significance of that number 3 now…
Be brave; give it a try! I’d love to hear how it works for you!
