This Unusual Story From An Underground Amethyst User Shocked Me

This Unusual Story From An Underground Amethyst User Shocked Me

Story of an Amethyst User

Hi, My name is Bria Johnson, 32 year old from Dallas, United States. As my crystal taught me to be honest, I will tell my story in full honesty, hiding nothing from you. My only request is the publish this in its full form, if you will at all.

I wrote this letter the day my life changed. Since then, many things happened so I will be splitting my story into three parts- The Past, The Present and The Future. Out of which, the Future of course is a recent update while the present has intermingled into the past. I have added the dates so that you can understand what really happened.

Part I- The Past

Born and brought up in Frisco, I had a terrible childhood. My parents were never actually there and I never knew why. I grew up on my Aunt’s farm in the outskirts of the city. Although my aunt was soft-spoken, my life there was nothing soft. I couldn’t go to school because my Aunt was dirt-poor. At least, that’s what it felt to me. She made me get up at 3:00 AM and help her around the farm. She never made me milk the cows or toil the farm, but had a million errands for me until the break of dawn. I ate exactly 5 slices of bed, 2 in the morning, 2 for lunch and one for supper because my Aunt told me fat girls didn’t get married. She also ate 5 breads with me. I never got time enough to de-tangle my golden colored hair too!

All I had was Lily, my neighbor’s niece who used to visit our farm to give the ‘Hola’ my aunt whenever she needed. That was sparse, but meeting her and spending the afternoon chatting with her was my life’s education. She was the one who told me my aunt and I were living like Cavemen and that my aunt was dirt-poor. She also told me the story of Cinderella and Fairy Godmother that I loved so much.  

We had a fight one day when my aunt had gone to the farmer’s market.

I was heartbroken and wanted to kill myself because Lily called me a savage for eating the apple that had fallen on the ground. But, I didn’t know how to tell her, my aunt served on the floor and it was not new for me to pick things and eat from the ground.

Heck, no one had ever told me not to eat from the ground. But when she called me a dirty hillbilly savage that smelt like a skunk, I ran into the orchard. I sat down under my favorite Apple tree and cried for what seemed like hours. Once I couldn’t heave or cry anymore, I started stabbing the soil with my tiny shovel. And after a few minutes, I heard a loud clang. Rubbing off my tears, I dug the earth out to find the source of the clang.

After digging for an hour, I unearthed a bright blue-purple stone that looked very polished. It was in the shape of a heart so I beamed up. I kept it next to my heart and ‘thanked Fairy God mother’. I knew no one else could gift that rock to me and it had to be the Fairy Godmother. I thought, perhaps I was Cinderella after all!

Part II- The Present

After thanking the stone, I started to carry the heart shaped purple rock everywhere I went. My pocket was always sagging but I managed to hide it from my Aunt.  

One day I was so hungry and asked fairy godmother for a biiiiig meal and as if from heaven, a delivery boy came and gave me a parcel of the Big Mac. There was no McD around our farm, and I don’t know where it came from or who it came from.

Then one day when my Aunt thrashed me for giving the bread to birds, I ran again into the orchards and clutched the stone. To my surprise, a strong wind blew and my tears disappeared as though I never had cried. I felt an instant warmth that felt like a hug.

I thanked the fairy godmother and asked her, “Please get me out of here. Take me to a nice place”.

You won’t believe me, but perhaps it was my tears that I suddenly noticed a car on the end of the fence. I ran to the car and a woman named “Linda” asked if I lived around. To this day, I don’t know why, but I said, “No”. She asked me where I was from and I remembered where Lily’s home was and replied “New York”. Like a parrot with visions, I then told her I was a lost because that’s what the stone showed me.

To my luck, Linda was a childline officer from New York. She took me to the city and put me in school with many little girls like me. I learned to write, read and graduated second in class 14 years back. But, it wasn’t easy. Girls always called me dum-dum and whenever I felt sad, I clutched my purple rock and asked for things.

When I asked for a mum and dad, within a week Linda found me foster parents.
When I asked for a cycle, my foster dad got me a cycle the very evening.
When I asked for a dress, my foster mum bought me a $410 prom dress with diamond necklace and earrings.

That’s when I learned about rocks in my school. I joined reddit and found myself asking so many questions and sharing things with people like me. That’s how I learned what I had was an amethyst. Then, I asked for a life partner when I graduated. Unfortunately, I never had one date in my life.

Part III- The Future  

I never let go of the amethyst even though it faded in color. I bought myself a lot of crystals and keep gifting stones to people whom I love and wanna thank. Every friend of mine has gotten an amethyst at least once from me. And, I have 800+ friends, guys.

I kept asking for a life partner and placed the stone inside a glass case to prevent it from getting ruined. To my surprise, after a documentary on gemstones that I attended in uni, when I was coming back, I stumbled on the handsomest man with an amethyst tasbihs around his neck.

I knew my wish was granted. He asked me out. We dated for 5 days and then he knelt on one knee and asked me to marry him. He made a ring from my amethyst and to date, I wear it like my soul on the sleeves.  

I just wanted to share this story to say that our destiny is written. I had the worst of lives and never even dreamt of the life I have now. Everything changed when I stumbled on the amethyst in the orchard. Things keep changing even now.

I know it’s not a fireworks-story, but it’s my story. I am not embarrassed to thank my amethyst. The coincidences worked because angels tell me the amethyst I found was left by my mum in the orchard. It was destined to be mine, so as my sweetheart.

I believed things would change and universe presented me with the most powerful stone to do that. I am so thankful for my semi-evil aunt, because without her I wouldn’t have found the stone. I pray for everyone today and hope that your readers will also get at least one amethyst if not any other crystal. It’s a power beyond means, use it wisely.

It always worked for me, so why shouldn’t it work for you. To tell you the truth, I don’t use it to ask any thing anymore. It’s given me everything and more than I can thank. What more could I ask my amethyst love anyway!

Wishing you all the blessings.

Not to do down Bria’s wonderful – and in parts, terrible – story, but that’s what crystals are for. The Earth created them, in some cases during her planetary infancy, to help us all make ourselves, our lives, each other and this world, better. They’re a gift and a blessing. If you stumble across one, don’t pass it by: it’s a sign that Mother Nature knows you need help and is trying to reach out with that help.

It was June 2004 when my husband – my soul-mate – fell extremely sick. He got some sort of cyst, and it quickly became excruciatingly painful; but in his stubbornness he ignored my advice, our friends’ advice and that of his parents, and refused to even consider getting treatment. Then the cyst ruptured… inwards. Whatever infection was in it, entered his bloodstream and turned to sepsis.

Finally he agreed to a trip to hospital. I think he thought it would be on an out-patient basis, but I knew differently: he was feverish, vomiting a lot, too dizzy to stand upright; and his sweat stank of something I can only describe as sickness. He was in very severe trouble.

I’m not one of the world’s drivers; but thankfully his parents only lived a couple of miles away. They took him to the hospital in their own car while I ran some essential errands. I forgot half of them in my distress, but I didn’t give a damn: who cares about errands when the centre of your life, might be about to be wrenched out of it?

I saw just the back of his head and shoulders through the rear window of his parents’ car as they drove him away while I waited for a bus into town, and part of me – well, most of me – wondered if that would be the last time I’d ever see him alive. Would my next sight of him be at his funeral? The mere thought caused my heart chakra to erupt in such agony, I felt almost as if I’d been shot. I had to push the thought away and believe – know – that he’d pull through.

Something caught my eye… actually, it glared into my eye. The June Sun – this was late in the month, shortly after the Summer Solstice – was blazing off something on the floor of the bus shelter. The light was so bright, I felt as if it would burn my retinas, so I looked away, but something virtually ordered me to go and take a look at it. I thought, “Oh, it’ll just be a bit of silver paper from a cigarette packet, dropped by some litter lout despite the fact that there’s a bl**dy bin only fifteen lousy feet away.” I’m not normally like that but, as you can probably imagine, my mood and energy were not at all positive; emotionally, I was in a pretty bad place.

Silver paper from a cigarette packet? I couldn’t have been more wrong if I’d tried! The item that was trying to get my attention by frying my right retina, was a 6mm × 6mm, princess-cut Sky-Blue Topaz, in a Sterling silver bezel setting!

I had no pockets, no handbag, and no chain on me, so I clutched the Topaz tightly in my left hand until I reached home again; then I managed to find it a chain, cleansed it and put it on.

Later that afternoon I went to visit hubby in hospital. The Topaz must have been working overtime to comfort and reassure me as the doctors told me they’d drained – if you’ve just eaten, or are just about to, you might want to stop reading now – half a pint of pus from the infection site; that because of the sepsis, hubby was on (what were then) the two most powerful antibiotics in existence; and that had he not been admitted when he was, I would have awoken the next day as a widow, in bed with a corpse. He’d come within eighteen hours, tops – and probably nearer twelve – of multiple organ failure, coma and death. But through it all, that Topaz kept me from screaming, bursting into tears, thumping him, throwing up or passing out, which most of me wanted to do, preferably all at once.

Needless to say, he came through – we celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary back in early May, Covid lockdown notwithstanding – but the recovery was long, and hard on us both. There was the time he had to attend our GP surgery without me, and he was told the antibiotics he’d been on were “smart antibiotics” which hadn’t decimated his intestinal flora (oh really? So how come he couldn’t even eat half a tin of soup and one slice of bread without throwing it back up because his stomach was too full?); he trusts my knowledge of pharmaceuticals over theirs, so he quoted the information to me when he came home. I won’t recount what I said in response, for politeness’ sake, but let’s just say, the blue streak was a pretty vivid shade! I was angry: angry at fate, angry at that nurse, and angry at hubby and his damnable stubborn stupidity! Unfortunately he hadn’t taken the name of the nurse, so nothing could be done. It would’ve been an ideal vent, with the Topaz keeping me calm (that poor crystal got run absolutely ragged).

The so-called “professionals” (ha ha) were zero help: it was me, with inspiration from the Topaz, who cemented his recovery. Hubby needed probiotics desperately because, after four months on half a tin of soup a day, he wasn’t recovering, full stop; but thanks to his dairy allergy, the standard live-culture yoghurt drinks were out of the question. Luckily I remembered seeing a TV advert for one probiotic drink which was made with skimmed milk, and I knew he could drink enough of that to handle a seven-day course of it. His allergy is mostly triggered by dairy fat molecules, so skimmed milk should be safe enough for the 70ml per day the course called for.

It was almost miraculous. He swallowed the contents of the first little bottle; I took the empty away and threw it away (at that time, my local authority had no facilities to recycle that kind of plastic), leaving him to rest.

Twenty-five minutes later he called me through. “My god,” he said, “I’m starving!” I almost went through the roof for sheer joy. He still only ate the half tin of soup, but this time with the addition of a slice of wholemeal bread; we’d tried that before, with the wrong upshot, but this time, he kept it down. I couldn’t have been more proud if he’d just designed the first working quantum computer!

He progressed quickly, thanks mainly to that Blue Topaz and the calm it granted me, keeping my head clear and my energy focused on putting him right. I did however make him swear, on his parents’ graves, absolutely never1 to be that stupid and stubborn again where his health was concerned.

But for that gemstone, his life and my sanity could well both have been forfeit.

It’s remarkable to think, though, that that Topaz took on all that distress, despair, anger, frustration and disappointment, and didn’t suffer even remotely from it all. I mean, I was scared to touch my Rose Quartzes because they probably would have sacrificed themselves in an attempt to help. I didn’t want that, so I left them be.

Love and Light.

P.S.: Yes, I still have the Topaz. It’s another close personal crystal, for obvious reasons, and I hope it never wants to leave, because I love it dearly.
