Hello my name is Violet, founder and lover of all things crystal. I’d love to share the story of how Cosmic Crystals was born and how crystals can help you to reach your fullest potential...
The Lowest of the Low’s
9 years ago, I hit a real low point in my life. I was working in a corporate advertising job in London and like most jobs these days, it consumed all my time and energy. I was working with some of the worlds biggest brands in an amazing agency, but the stressful work & my lack of purpose exasperated my anxiety to the point that I just could no longer control it. Panic attacks would come on in the most random of places and at the most random of times. Stress had made my skin break out in such bad acne, I didn't want to face anyone. I felt like I’d lost control of my own body and eventually I started to believe that I was a weak person because everyone else around me didn’t react in the same way that I did.
The Wise Woman
One evening around this time, a leaflet was posted through the door to go to a meditation night. I felt a strong pull to go so showed it to my mum. Given how I was feeling we decided to give it a try. Whilst there, a little old lady in the group approached me and complimented me on the crystal necklace that I was wearing that evening.
“Ahh…that’s a beautiful sodalite crystal. I'll show you how to use it if you like?"
I was very intrigued as despite my love of crystals from a young age, I didn’t actually know what the crystal I was wearing meant. She went on to explain to me its meaning and said that after the session was done, she would meet me outside and tell me how to use it.
I was intensely fascinated as I had no knowledge about this. As the session came to a close, I had almost forgotten about her offer but as I went to leave, the wise little lady was waiting outside for me in the cold, damp carpark.
She asked me to take my crystal necklace off and to hold it out in front of me. She explained how I could “activate its energy” by imagining a while light emanating from the crystal and by sending it love.
She explained that I could ask it questions by using it as pendulum. It would swing from left to right for a “no” or back and forth for a “yes.” I tried it out and it seemed to work! I really could not believe what I was seeing and felt quite overcome by the entire experience. Her final message to me was that I would "share crystals with many people in the future".
Discovering Crystal Energies
A few days after the mediation class - my mum decided to surprise me with a gift. She handed me a large piece of Citrine Crystal. As she handed it over, the entire idea of Cosmic Crystals came to me within a flash.
I’d never really experienced a sudden insight like this before so could only guess it was from holding and touching the crystal. I instantly knew I needed to provide people with crystals and make it understandable what each stone meant and how to use them. Within just one week the first draft of my website was built. I was beyond excited as it was just like the lady at the meditation class had predicted.
Cosmic Crystals went live (*drum roll please*) and …. nothing. Literally nothing happened.
Back to Life – Back to Reality
At the time, with my confidence being low, I ended up thinking that this flash of insight was just a delusion. How could I have believed such a thing was true? I put my sensible hat back on and got back to reality again.
But the Crystals kept glimmering in my consciousness. During my workday, I would tweak the website in the background and make some improvements and adjustments just for fun. I’d think of new ideas, add new crystals and slowly but surely a couple would sell.
I became increasingly fascinated with energy work and wanted to learn even more about the world of crystals and healing. I trained in reiki, took crystal courses and read countless books on ancient wisdom, personal development and spirituality.
Three years eventually went by until I could finally no longer take my corporate job anymore. I'd had a big breakup, my skin had broken out in acne, I was stressed and crying far too much. There had to be more to life than spending 4 hours a day travelling to a job where I was having panic attacks in my lunch break. Enough was enough. I decided to quit.
Taking the Leap of Faith
My plan was ‘I’d just sell my crystals at fairs’ even if it meant I had to work other jobs to support it as I knew it would make me happy and finally fulfilled. I booked a stall at a local Christmas Fair to sell them on a stand. I couldn’t have predicted what happened next.
My stand had a huge queue all day and we pretty much sold out within the first day. People of all ages were fascinated by the crystal meanings and how they could help them. I was on such a high I could not believe it. Finally, my dream was becoming more real. People really wanted our Cosmic Crystals and I knew that they could really help them.
After the success of the fair, my confidence grew and I began to rely on my intuition more and more. I learnt that when I used my crystals, meditated and relaxed more, I would get powerful insights of what to do next. Within months, my online business started to grow rapidly. At first, we posted our Cosmic Crystals out from my parents’ spare bedroom until I quickly outgrew this.
I then moved to a warehouse and started building a team and soon enough we outgrew that too. We moved to yet a bigger warehouse and the team kept growing. The vision had become a reality and our powerful crystals only enforced the positive energies throughout.
Today, we have a beautiful team of people to help serve many thousands of people all around the world by connecting them to meaningful crystals and explaining their ancient meanings.
It is my wish to continue to spread the power of crystals to as many people as possible in order to help them reach their highest potential.
This is exactly why Cosmic Crystal’s mission is to:
“Spread the power of positivity, one crystal at a time”
Spreading Crystal Power
I’m glad you’re here to be a part of this journey with us so that you too can start feeling the healing and transformative effects of Cosmic Crystals. I have carefully chosen powerful crystals that symbolise areas in life you can focus your positive intentions on. Each crystal works by harmonising particular energies in your body to bring you back into vibrational alignment and wellbeing. Incorporating crystals into your life can help you shift into a much more positive mindset as they can be your symbol for change and improvement.
Your own personal journey has led you to this moment and while you’re here, I just want to remind you that no matter what's happening in your life now or what you are going through, YOU ARE ENOUGH so never give up on your dreams!
What keeps our team truly motivated is hearing from our customers about their personal journey with crystals. People are drawn to Crystals and Crystals are drawn to people but there’s always a beautiful story that connects the two.
Sending you lots of love,
