If you read my last post you know that I am a big fraidy cat when it comes to the new school year. So I ventured out to my new school again today but this time I came armed. I brought along a spray bottle filled with spring water, sage, rose petals, a piece of quartz and a piece of amethyst. I sprayed this around the room in order to cleanse some of the bad energy and bring in some positive, calm and relaxing energy. I then placed a piece of natural (not polished) amethyst in each corner in the room.
For those of you who don't know much about crystals, here is why I did that: Amethyst is a stone that emits calming energy and promotes peace and tranquility. It helps balance energy and is especially recommended for children with ADHD. Amethyst is the very first stone I was ever attracted to and I wore a large piece of it for most of my teenage years, which may have helped me not get into the trouble that many of my peers did. I have more amethyst in my home than any other stone and, in my ritual room, I have a beautiful little fountain that cascades water over a pile of Amethyst.
I feel a little better now that I have taken some action and made the classroom a little more "mine". I'm still incredibly nervous about meeting all the new people and trying to make connections but at least I have made some progress in feeling more comfortable in my own little part of the school.
