Most of my learning has come through reading books and blogs, personal use of crystals, and my classes taught by my mentor the Sage Goddess, Athena Perrakis. You can find out more about her classes here.

***The life, learning, and longings of a bored accountant.*** Welcome to my website! I have been a business management accountant in the entertainment industry for many years. During my spare time, I continue my learning of spiritual and metaphysical interests such as crystals, gemstones, and spirituality. Just a couple of years ago, I decided to become a single mommy by choice. Now I write about balancing everything while sharing my life lessons, teachings, and all of my longings. Enjoy my blog, my beautiful friends!

      Those are two of my favorite crystals. That is how I began this journey…two bracelets that I didn’t really think about until years later

  • travelthroughlifehannah

    Beautiful and inspiring! I have been looking for some cool advent calendars this year, I found a crystal one, which I think you might like! Its beautiful. It was from Not On The Highstreet if you wanted to look. Crystals are everything <3

    Crystals are very important in science for various reasons. One of the major reasons is that they give us information about the structure of compounds. In biology crystals of proteins and larger compounds also give an idea of what they are made of which help scientists further understand the functions of the molecules.

    • Kristina @ Spirit of the Soul

      This is so true. It is very fascinating how crystals are formed and that the different types of stones have different structures.

  • Bianca Sasha

    I LOVE my crystals…citrine is actually my crystal for the month! I’m also always carrying my green aventurine, pyrite, rose quartz and jade! Let the abundance of love and money flow!

  • Sania Ahmed

    I always had a question does these stones really help in the aspects they are said to affect? I remember once a friend gave me a white stone saying it is for wealth and wisdom, i wore it for quite a long time.

    • Kristina @ Spirit of the Soul

      I believe that it truly depends. If you feel that a crystal is just a rock, it will not do much BUT once I started learning about the types of crystals and their vibrations, I saw a difference in my own life. Example: when I’m super stressed with a deadline, I place my hand on a large piece of Lemurian Quartz. This instantly calms my mind while helping me to focus on reaching that deadline.

    Years ago I began collecting rocks. I ask friends travelling the world to simply pick me up a stone. The only caveat is that you must tell me the story behind why you chose this particular stone.

  • adamrtownsend

    This is a good post…do you really believe they help? I have never really collected crystals etc, finding that being outdoors or just in my own confined space helps me to release and, in turn, write.

    • Kristina @ Spirit of the Soul

      I believe each person finds the thing that helps them. For me it has been crystals and essential oils. I live in the middle of Los Angeles so it’s not always easy to get outdoors, but as you described…grounding with nature is another proven way of calming and changing your mind and outlook.

  • Sarah Fatima

    Wonderful post and great read. I never own any gemstone till now but if I ever get a chance to buy any crystal it must be banded print Jasper because i like it’s characteristics.

  • suchi

    This is such a nice post! I really did not know the science behind each of these stones!I would love to try Citrine & Mookaite Jasper… Bookmarking this!

  • filip19933

    Citrine is my type of stone! I never knew anything about crystals until I read this post. Next time i see them i may pick one up!

    • Kristina @ Spirit of the Soul

      I have been drawn to citrine long before I started working with it on a metaphysical level.

    Just last week a friend gifted me black tourmaline. She told me Black tourmaline is a shield. A bodyguard stone that provides protection and elimination of negative energy. It’s supposed to cleanse you of bad thought patterns. But more than that, it supposedly provides protection against negative people: those moaners, whiners, complaining neighbors or emotional vampires who burden you with their problems but do nothing to improve their situations. “This is the stone that helps you set boundaries”

    • Kristina @ Spirit of the Soul

      This is true. As black tourmaline is a shield and protector, it is a good crystal to keep at your front door to keep negative vibrations out. I keep a black tourmaline and quartz at my front door.

    Crystals and their healing abilities are sooo interesting to me! I never really knew much about them so reading this was so inspiring! -Tonya Morris
