Dear Fellow White Folks

Regardless of your stance on the national election, our world is rapidly transitioning into more a difficult, yet uncertain future. The ongoing unrest, violence, and hate are not just “going to get better with time.” We can’t erase the damage that is dangerously gaining momentum, or forget about previous decades of civil rights activism that fought for humans’ rights today.

No matter your age, background, or personality, we all share one thing in common: we’re individuals on our unique pursuits of happiness.

Regardless of how wise each of us may be, none of us can predict what happens tomorrow. Due to this uncertainty, many of us succumb to feelings of waywardness at one point or another. Despite technology connecting us closer to each other than humanity has ever experienced before, we oftentimes neglect to convey the messages we need to talk about the most. We inevitably uncover in ourselves semblances of loneliness or weakness when we do not recognize the support and empathy inherent in others’ experiences. So focused on our own feeds and timelines, technology often fails to nourish authentic human relations. Thus, it’s become too easy for us to look past what truly makes us happy.

For the typical millennial, this is a reality we’ve grown accustomed to. At the same time, it’s a truth we don’t have to accept. Crystal Clarity¬†seeks to provide the intuitive wisdom, holistic tools, and healing services to assist folks on their journeys.

Take what you need, and let’s move forward together to enact positive change in our worlds.
Time calls for us to flourish and find our own crystal clarity.

Sharing a common space harmoniously is crucial to a happy home life, so it counts to have positive relationships with those you live with. In my experience, I’ve had anywhere between one roommate to living 60 other girls at a time. Needless to say, I’ve picked up a lot of lessons about how to be and have good home partners.

Love Always Wins

At Oregon Country Faire last year, a good friend of mine, Ayla, held up a totem sign that read in rainbow print: “Love Always Wins.” I didn’t anticipate how true that statement would prove to me, and how much it seems everyone needs to hear it.
