Hey, first of all I'd like to thank you for all your birthday wishes! <3<3 I received a book about White Magic which I started reading immediately! These three are said to have imense healing powers. But I am only familiar with the power of plants - I love essential oils and eating healthy really helped me become fit again! So, that's why I would love to know if you have made some experiences with the powers of stones, plants or metals (like a stone or some trinket you carry around)?
Funny thins about this... your choice of colours is spot-on for plants, or the "wood" element in feng shui... and metals looks a gorgeous shade of gold... or even a nice earthy colour, which... um in feng shui, earth strengthens metals.
I have found that some stones have been very helpful to me, others to a lesser degree, and also some were even too powerful for me. Some have gradual approaches to their ability to heal you, but they consistently are there for you and do improve your life slowly but surely with an element of this "gradualism" in their specific field/genre/aspect (whatever you would like to call it) of your life that they can help... some will feel more "in-tune" with you, while still others, not so much... this may also have to do with your own energy and how you move through the world... your elements on every aspect of astrology as well, not only your main/sun sign, but the other planets, and the element you are in Chinese Feng Shui will also likely influence which ones you are drawn to... but I would actually recommend a visit to such shops that might carry metaphysical/healing stones, and even other magical gifts, because then you might be more drawn to it intuitively, rather than feeling obligated to "match up" anything. However, I'm predicting/assuming (without looking) you might be born in a year that ends in either 4 or 5 (such as 1994/1995) or possibly 6 or 7 (for example 1986 or 1987), no need to mention the year if your age is unknown to the world, please know I respect this fully and these numbers are mere examples! But if the first one (4 or 5 as your birth year's last number), you're a wood element; if the latter, you're a fire element. I suspect this only because of your love of the wood element already, the enjoyment and fulfillment you receive from imbibing the plants and also the healing aspects of essential oils thereof... wood also is strengthening to fire. This is Chinese Astrology/Feng Shui talking, more than me... I am merely a messenger. ^.^ And hey, if I am mistaken, who knows? There may be some other explanation! Maybe you were a forest fairy in your previous life?
How about teas? Funny thing about me, is that I am very much influenced by stones and plants too... but I'm neither an earth nor wood element at all... I'm actually a water element through and through, and have no planets whatsoever in an earth sign (must need it for grounding)! I can be very cool, calm and collected, but when placed under immense pressure, I can truly unleash a storm of emotions... and I'm learning to ensure I maintain healthy outlets if I am subjected to unhealthy people/surroundings/environments/etc. Also, I like to share some knowledge with those who already appear to have an open mind and a tender heart, and a true love of all things magical... my favorite trinket of all times is a ring I wear, now on my index finger due to some weight loss, and it's actually 14 kt white gold (so it has the properties of gold metal associated with it), and a gorgeous Siberian Blue Quartz gem.... you can kind of see it in my Cup O' Tea deviation, if you're curious. . . but the truth is, it was one of the rocks that was too powerful for me when I acquired it, and I wasn't ready for it yet, because I didn't fully comprehend its abilities and how they would affect me... now, after almost 3 years of having it (coming up soon!), I am very happy with what I have learned, about myself and about many other things in life (see above, the brief amount of "knowledge" I have shared already)... some people don't fully comprehend what it means to be an empath, and think you can let go or block out others moods instantly, and that feeling them is a choice... no, it truly isn't! And this is especially more so when there is not any adequate "down time" afforded you for respite and recovery. ^.^ Knowing this has been my biggest feeling of freedom, however, and it helps me to recognize what's truly going on with me... even though others might choose to mock and insult me instead. It's all good, though, I know who I am, it matters not if others do not... nor care not. It only matters that I am my own best friend and my own authority about what is good for me and what I need, regardless of others' beliefs... (don't get me wrong... this is the side of me who is still being subjected to judgment from those who choose/refuse to learn new things about psychology/life, yet feel they have some kind of right to "judge" mine... hmmmn... such as claiming it's "acting weird" when I'm trembling with fear around the person who recently raised their hand to threaten me with violence because they refused to permit me a few minutes to myself to unwind) But I do love others, and enjoy helping/healing them anyway I can... and sharing what minimal knowledge I have picked up thus far in my humble existence on this planet, so I sincerely hope you enjoyed this comment and found at least some part of it to be helpful/informative. ^.^
