I have a little story for you about manifestation. I've read information from time to time about how to create things from a metaphysical sense. I've learned that one is to put the thought out clearly into the Universe, then forget it, and the desire will manifest. I recently experienced a perfect display of this teaching.
I was buying at a recent mineral show, and a friend scouted me out (God knows how he found me). He proceeded, with great excitement, to show me a beautiful clear quartz sphere that contained a manifestation crystal within it - that is a perfectly formed crystal within another crystal i.e. the sphere. Manifestation crystals (see page 528, of Melody's Love is in the Earth, A Kaleidoscope of Crystals Updated) are very rare, and this one was just amazing. I was very happy for him as I knew he had been searching for this type of crystal.
A day or two later I was scoping out some fabulous spodumene with another friend. She picked up a large yellow gemmy piece that had attracted her the previous day. She held it for awhile, then looked at it again, and realized that there was a small crystal within it - another manifestation crystal! Just at that moment I said to myself very clearly, "I need to get one of those". Then I completely forgot that I had ever thought it, until . . . . . . . .
A week or so later I received a phone call from the first friend and he told me he had something for me. I curiously asked him what it was, and to my delight he had found another quartz sphere containing a manifestation crystal and it was supposed to be mine. I then remembered my little thought projection, and needless to say, I was awed. So looks like clear thought projection works, especially when angels like my friend are around! Now I have a lot more creating to do with my new manifestation crystal.- Karen Kuk-NagleX
