View Full Version : Geode as Portal?

I had the strangest experience yesterday. I was at a shopping mall, and decided to stop at a little fossils-and-minerals shop. I mean REALLY little; it is small and crowded. They also overprice their products, but it's fun to look.

I was in there, and they had a lot of those large amethyst geodes, the ones sometimes called "cathedrals". (The ones that are 2-5 feet tall and that cost a fortune.) I've never seen so many of them in the same place before, and they were in groups of 3 or 4 all crowded together on the floor.

Anyway, I remember I was leaning over a group of the geodes to be able to see something on a shelf behind it. When I got close I got this feeling of being "pulled through a door". That's the only way I can think of to describe this. I had to leave the store for the feeling to go away. It was spooky, and a little bit scary.

Has anyone had an experience like this before?

Amethyst geodes certainly have energy, so I guess having many together could create that kind of feeling. In a better place it might have been interesting to see where it took you - but you'd have to feel realy secure.

Try linking with Amethyst at home some time, and see how it feels?

I'm sorry it was so unsettling for you, NT.
The two times I've been "drawn in" to the cathedral specimens were very different- and not scary at all. Felt like I was shrinking down to microscopic faerie size and I had the feeling that I could climb each little "mountain" and find something new. Since I wasn't alone, I couldn't stay to see what would happen & most certainly didn't have the $$ to buy it.

ETA: I wonder if that's why I asked for my amethyst to be faceted in an emerald cut?! I've called it my Amethyst Door for as long as I've had it, but had forgotten . . .

I can imagine how unsettling that would be, especially since it took you by surprise, and was not something you were controlling. I like Pathwalker's suggestion.

Can you link a picture of what you're talking about? I kinda think I might maybe know, but I'm not sure...LOL.

Yes, like those, but HUGE. At least up to my waist.

I think "cathedral" is a fancy word for really large geodes. Or else they refer to the ones that are tall rather than spherical.

The outer shape greatly changes how I "feel" when I look at one. Some are more like little grottos or crystal caves. And you can find them in other gems that might work better.

I'm wondering if this experience has something to do with my Reiki attunement? Amethyst is associated with the Crown Chakra (connection to the Universe).

I hadn't thought about that, but I'd say it's a good bet. I've known people to have powerful reactions & new sensitivities after a laying-on-of-stones- even if the person doing it was untrained.

Namaste NT... Interesting... I love crystals with a passion and have had lovely moments with them... but my best moment was with an ordinary rock! (I did have a great experience in a labyrinth with lots of small rose quartz pieces lining up towards the centre, though. :))

I really do love crystals... and believe they can act as portals in addition to their many other uses...

I'm thinking, too, though, NT, that the very fact that you are open to Reiki attunement possibly also means that you have opened yourself more consciously to opportunities and experiences like the one you've just had... and in that case lots of things will act as portals or as opportunities...

I enjoy such moments, because I actively invite them in and feel blessed when something like that does occur... but I can't imagine that I'd enjoy that experience happening to me it in a shopping centre!!! A time and a place... heh heh! Best wishes.... :)

I wonder, too, given this configuration, whether the shopowners might have been doing intentional 'grid work' to clear up the shop energy, or something???

I don't know if there's anything that planned-out. The owner of the shop is a geologist, so I doubt he'd even know about energy grids. (But I could be wrong).

There's a stock-photo on this page (click on the small photo to enlarge) that shows just how tiny, and how crowded, this display space really is.

I see what you mean.... Not very likely! :) But I maintain my posture re your having opened yourself up to this, and more of same, by undergoing the Reiki attunement, because don't you usually declare an intention when you are given an attunement? (I could be wrong, to!!! :))

Anyway, it sounds interesting, and worth pursuing to find out why/how :)
