Does it ever feel like life has turned into a game of Simon Says? If you don’t remember playing that game as a kid, the concept was pretty simple. Someone makes commands, and you follow only the ones that start with, “Simon Says.” Eventually, we grow up and stop playing this game. Instead, as adults, we play a variation of it that we’ll call, Society Says. We invest a lot of energy into doing what society says. Society says get a job, pay your bills, get a house. Of course these things can be important life steps, but what about the commands that our soul is sending?
When our heart yearns to travel, invest in a new passion, or open up to new experiences, why don’t we focus on those signals like we focus on the demands of society? If striving for the goals that you thought you were supposed to pursue hasn’t left you with the satisfaction that you thought it would, it’s time to turn your attention inward. Using crystals for new beginnings helps you to discover what will really bring you joy.
