How do I get into crystal stuff? I know it’s something I want to get into. It seems that people into low-key crystal stuff are generally a little more content or have some things figured out. But I want to know, how do I get into it? The woman at the bookstore with the dream catchers and wind chimes and menstrual calendars seems to be into crystal stuff, and she is serene as all get out. She even has some crystals. They’re in a little velvet case next to the cash register. And she gets all prickly when I get too close to them, like, yeah right, I’m really gonna steal your merchandise (although it would be incredibly easy to do). But if I were to actually buy a crystal, would that constitute being into crystal stuff? Because I’m not sure how I would use it or what I would do with it—put it on my dresser? Put it in the bath? Casually toss it to people when they come over as if it’s that interwoven into my life? The point is, I’d never be sure if I was using it right. Like, what if I put it on top of my DVD player and that somehow messed with its intrinsic healing properties or something? What if a crystal expert came over and saw that I’d stuck it in a high top? Then what? This all leads me back to the same initial question: How in the hell do I get into crystal stuff?
