Has this ever happened to you? . . . You’re in love with a crystal, working with it daily, and then one day it’s just gone. Poof. Vanished.
You retrace your steps. Check all of your little hiding places and no luck. Your go-to crystal has just disappeared.
We all misplace things from time to time; our keys, phone, sunglasses. It happens. I usually enlist my husband to help me find what I’ve misplaced. He jokes that I’m not a very good easter egg hunter, and whatever we are looking for is the prized egg of which he usually recovers pretty quickly.
But there is something different about a vanishing crystal. If you’ve experienced this, you know what I’m talking about . . . IT JUST DISAPPEARS!
Sometimes, it will reappear within a couple days or a week. Other times it’s gone for months or even years.
And in the meantime it’s likely left you wondering why? What’s the message?
In this week’s episode of Crystal Shaman Life podcast I dive into this topic, sharing a couple stories, insights about why crystals disappear, and some tips for how you can recognize and embrace the medicine your crystal was sharing with you.
Do you have a disappearing crystal story? Share it in the comments, we’d love to hear it!
Yes! Moldavite—I wanted a piece of Moldavite, mainly because it seemed everyone was big on it and talked about how powerful it was. This was late 2011/early 2012. I bought a piece, held it, looked at it & “nothing”. Didn’t feel anything from it. Thought that was odd but placed it on my altar. Next time I came to the room, it was gone. Disappeared. Searched everywhere but could not find it.
So, I tried a second time with exactly the same result even though I was super careful and mindful of watching exactly where I placed it.
I am thinking I was just not ready to work with it. My son died in June 2011 and so I was still deeply grieving during this period.
A year or 18 months later, a stone similar in shape to my first piece of Moldavite appeared on the floor in front of my bookcase in the same room it had disappeared from. Except now, it was mainly smooth all over…not full of the usual ridges characteristic of Moldavite ??
I still don’t understand the meaning of this whole experience.
I still don’t feel anything from Moldavite. That’s unusual too as my main gift is feeling energy in my body and usually have a hard time staying focused in a crystal shop as I get overwhelmed by the concentration of the energy from so many crystals in one small space.
But Moldavite, even though it stays now, just feels dead to me.
Love this Dawn! Thank you for sharing your moldavite disappearing/reappearing experience.
As I was reading what you shared, I was getting a little giggle at the moldavite and how they get our attention.
I’m a big feeler of energy too. When I first worked with moldavite, I felt nothing. I doubted that my pieces were real. When they reappeared, I very clearly heard from them ‘see, we are real.’
I still don’t truly feel with them in the ways I feel other stones. Perhaps that is part of their magic . . . inviting us to expand our shaman senses and connect in ways that are less familiar for us. <3
