My name is Norma and my deep love for crystals began in 2016. Growing up my mom always collected rocks and crystal and I just didn't get why she was so in love with them. She would buy me crystal jewelry to wear and I'd wear it but didn't really have a connection with them as I do now, not until I hit depression in 2015. I found out I was pregnant right when another business I started was beginning to bloom. I wasn’t ready to be a mom. The thought of having a baby freaked me out. I didn’t know how to change diapers, having children never crossed my mind. My boyfriend at the time who is now my husband and I broke up. I was a mess. I didn’t want a baby, especially not as a single mother. I was working 14 hour work days at my full time job and as a fitness instructor at my studio. I was physically and emotionally drained on top of being pregnant. I cried everyday while listening to audios on self help on my way to work. I tried to hide my depression but I couldn’t hold back my tears. I didn’t want to worry my mom, she was my rock still is and forever will be, but she knew... we never spoke about it cause “I was fine” but she knew. One day at a farmers market there was a crystal vendor and she said “pick something, anything you want” I was immediately drawn to Rose Quartz. All I knew is Rose Quartz was a love stone. When I got home I did some research and only to find out that Rose Quartz was exactly what I needed, it helped with self love, depression and protection during pregnancy. At that moment I knew this was it! My healing journey began; I started meditating, reiki, journaling, the Louise Hay self help audios I was listening to were finally starting to make sense and I fell in love with myself again and most importantly I was so excited about this baby in my belly.
After my baby was born, my babies dad and I worked things out. My relationship with my mom was stronger that it already was. We had crystal shopping trips to farmers markets on Friday nights. One day I told her I think I can make this stuff! And sure enough I started playing with wire and crystals and I had a new hobby. I would share my crafts on social media and people started asking if they could place an order. My new hobby turned into a business. It's amazing the way the Universe works. I never planned for many things in life, they just happened the way they are meant to happen. I was meant to fall apart to get here today, at that moment I felt I didn’t deserve any of it. But now I can say I am grateful for all of it. Fast forward to today I get to work from home on something I am so passionate about. I get to share what I love with the world. I get to take my daughter to school and therapy and most importantly watch her learn and grow. She loves what mommy does. Running a business from home with a toddler isn’t the easiest thing in the world but I wouldn’t have it any other way. After every storm comes a rainbow, welcome to my rainbow!
