alchemist book

Whilst searching for the meaning of life, coming unstuck numerous times, working in the education sector, struggling with energy levels and not having time to find true love and live a happy life. The constant lack of direction in my life was also contributing to anxiety and the deterioration of my mental health.​

Many years ago I read the book ‘The Alchemist’, quotes from this book would regularly come up in my head when I was trying to keep a positive outlook, when things happened in my life that negatively impacted me. This is when I realised I was just being rather than living.​​

“What’s the world’s greatest lie?… It’s this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That’s the world’s greatest lie.” I took up yoga which was closely followed by intense meditation, this allowed me to relax and regain a hold on my life, I found myself smiling more and stressing less. My meditation instructor had a beautiful crystal in the corner of her room, which I was later informed was an Amethyst crystal.

Upon commenting on it, she revealed the meaning of the Amethyst crystal and how these energy crystals can realign and re-calibrate your energy. She also used the following sentence that I’ll never forget “Crystals can help you raise your vibration to attract what you want in life and reach a higher state of being.”

Having learnt this new information i further researched and found scientific studies which backed up my meditation tutors words, my mind also retracted back to The Alchemist, in particular ‘Urimm and Thummim’. “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” healing stones are used to manifest your intentions and help you create what you want in life.​

Still working in the Education sector I found myself a lot happier, with both meditation and now my new fascination of crystals and their healing properties. I read more, discovered the different healing properties and explored different crystal products. My close friends and family, who I had been withdrawn from for the past few years, instantly saw the difference in my outlook on life. As a result I couldn’t help but mention how crystals had impacted my life. I found myself advising my family, friends and colleagues on which crystals they would benefit from using. As a teacher I was there to help people. Explaining to people how healing crystals worked, I was helping more people…”It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” It felt like my journey was only just beginning in my mid 20s.

I began getting questions like ‘Where can I get the best quality crystals from?’ and ‘How do I know they are the real deal?’. I too had purchased some poor quality crystals in the past….Lightbulb moment: I will find my own wholesaler who sells top quality products and sell these to my family, friends and colleagues. After much success with these, and support in setting up a website, I was persuaded to set up my own crystal selling company… Alchemistal.

My mission: To help people like me find their calling in life, to find their meaning and live happier, healthier lives. “One’s Personal Legend is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is. At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realise their Personal Legend.” Your personal legend has brought you to this page today, and I am eternally grateful that you are part of this journey with me in experiencing the healing benefits of crystals that transformed my life and which I hope will bring happiness, healing and focus in your life.
