Hi Maya, this is a really great topic for discussion
Congrats on your purchase, I would have to say from the results posted it went very well for
you. I'd be interested in hearing how it went for you as you were using this technique. There are many items used for scrying, divination, healing,
meditation etc...... I'll post a few links for color meaning/uses and technique.
I received my first gemstone when I was 15. My mother had bought me a silver handcrafted cross that had amethyst stones mounted one after another the
entire length/width. She bought it and gave it to me because she thought of me. For me this was my talisman for many years. With the many different
tools etc....it's not necessary to have them gifted to you. You can purchase your own, what you need or want will resonate with the individual person
but an item/tool gifted to you is very "powerful" for lack of a better word. I'm not talking about someone getting rid of their item because they
bought new or have no use for it anymore but them gifting it to you because they feel it would be beneficial, needed or good for you. Like my mom felt
that necklace was for me, now my mom is not into any of this so for her it was just a nice purchase for her daughter but her coming to me with this
and saying I saw this and thought of you and had to get it had more meaning for me because I knew I was being gifted with an item meant for me.
My experiences with the talisman were many before it's demise. For me the cross is symbolic of my faith and beliefs, not so much in the church and
it's teaching. I don't follow anyone specific religion or belief but a more eclectic belief. This necklace kept me safe an those with me many times
over. It amplified what was already natural for me, in a few cases it made it to hard to ignore.
When I was sixteen I was riding in a car with a friend. She picked me up and we were going to go back to her house. For whatever reason she went the
wrong way and we had to make a turn on the children's bridge. It's a part of the highway that's dangerous and been the sight of many vehicular
deaths. This was very close to my house and when we turned on the street for the "bridge" I heard I needed my necklace on, to buckle up and felt
panicked. I had just finished clasping my necklace when we came to the stop. We BOTH looked both ways, it was fine to pull out normally not speed out
just to make it. She pulled out to make the left hand turn, we were hit and sent into the oncoming lanes of traffic, a total of four vehicles hit us
before we came to a stop.
The lady that hit us was dead even with the car in the lane next to her when we started pulling out. With that ladies testimony and the evidence at
the scene and her admission later she sped up to hit us because she wanted a new car. When I was pulled from the vehicle that was the first thing I
heard her screaming we owe her a new car, she was getting a new car. She never tried to stop, she slammed into us at 50+ mph. The worst part was her
8yr old was in the front seat unbuckled, he went through the windshield and died just after arriving at the hospital.
When I was 17 I was suppose to go shopping for the day with my best friend and her mom. We had planned this and were looking forward to it for days.
That morning when I put my necklace on I again had the horrible feeling and heard no to go with them. I told my friend on the phone I wasn't going to
go with them, why don't we just hang out or something. Basically after bailing on her she and her mom went. I got a phone call several hours later
that they had been in a bad accident. A construction truck pulled out in front of them they swerved to miss it and ran head on into a utility pole at
