I write for Crystal Healer LA, Metaphysical Vibes, Save the Savages & Pia San Jose – my 4 online properties. I guess you can say I am a blogger even though I’ve always hated that word. Blog writer sounds more appropriate.
So I wrote this on my crystal shop’s blog when I was just starting to fill it up with content: https://metaphysicalvibes.com/welcome-to-metaphysical-vibes/ – I’m sharing it here because I never really wrote down how I got to where I am now.
How did I get to this point?
I’m going to get personal here so feel free to skip unless you want to know more about me – Pia, the owner of Metaphysical Vibes.
In the years following my mom’s death, I sort of felt lost. My mom had passed away from ovarian cancer in 2006 and ever since then, it seemed as if I was always looking for something to help me make sense of my life. I wasn’t suicidal but at the same time, I wasn’t excited about living.
At first, the dark side of the occult attracted me; dark images inspired my art and the teachings of Anton Szandor Lavey made so much sense to me at the time since my mom always tried to push Christianity on me but just never fully clicked.
To make a long story short, I was exploring spirituality for the first time with my own eyes and ended up buying my first set of stones from a metaphysical store in North Hollywood in 2012. The descriptions they had with the stones resonated with me.
I also started seeking the magickal teachings of Aleister Crowley, Eliphas Levi and others; I started learning how to read tarot for myself via books and I kept collecting more stones and books from various metaphysical stores in the Los Angeles area.
I was definitely hungry for a different kind of knowledge so I started taking classes on crystals, tarot, developing intuition at House of Intuition in LA. My current knowledge is a combination of self study and taking classes.
I am not really sure why I started this crystal shop. But if you’d like to read more of my musings, you can visit my personal blog at Save the Savages.
And so here I am, forever learning and experiencing All That Is.
I hope you will check out the crystal shop and see if any one of them speak to you!
