I probably gained 10 pounds over the weekend. Yep, 10… well ok, maybe it was more like 3… and it’s not the kind of weight you’re likely thinking of, but it surprises me every time it happens – even though I really should know better by now. What’s more, I bet it happens to some of you too! Any guesses? Yes, that’s right! – I went to the metaphysical bookstore. And came out with 2 more books to read (I’m already reading something like 5!) and three more rocks to join the assortment of others that end up stuffed in various pockets at some point during the day (I need a better belt!). Sound familiar?
I love the local metaphysics shop, though. I love it, because … well, it’s metaphysics. It feels good when I walk in there. The owners are nice. I can talk to them about stuff that some of my other acquaintances would simply smile, nod and then try to drag me off for psychological evaluation. The books on the shelves are of actual interest and are immediately available, instead of having to first run the “gauntlet of dribble” in most other shops just to get to the section allocated for such topics as religion, spirituality, meditation, energy healing, and reincarnation. They have classes and incense and gems and books and t-shirts and all kinds of things of interest. And inevitably, something finds its way to my hand that just doesn’t want to leave. It’s like metaphysical super-glue!
But why do we find ourselves drawn to certain objects, places, or people? And why, on one day, a specific item doesn’t seem to have any sway over us while on another day the pull is so strong that to not take the item out of the shop with us is unthinkable?
The answer is really quite simple; We need that item, and the energy or vibration it emits, right then. Often we don’t quite consciously understand or acknowledge the nature of these pulls, but the Divine spiritual part of us knows, and puts exactly what we need in front of us to find when we need to find it (with more than just books and crystals by the way). Sometimes, I’ve barely read the synopsis on the back cover of a book and don’t have a clue as to the characteristics of a certain gem that has found its way to my hand before finding that they are in a cute little bag, about to come home. But sure enough, when I read the book, or research the properties of the crystal, it is perfectly attuned to some part of my self-development that I’ve been trying to develop, have been pondering and trying to come to terms with, have recently dreamed about, or is applicable in some other very direct way. It’s as if Spirit is saying “So you have the question… now here’s the answer!” (or a hint toward the answer). It’s kinda cool. Ok, it’s very cool. But don’t forget – we are truly beings of energy and light, with more “intelligence” than we often acknowledge. And when that super-glue kicks in, it’s another aspect of our being telling us it’s time to pay attention to a certain aspect of our higher development. And oh by the way, this rock may just help!
