I’ve always known that deep down there was more than just the world I could see with my own eyes. From a young age I would experience vivid dreams, and throughout my teenage years, I was exposed to a number of events that led me to believe there was a whole other life out there.
I’ve lived an extraordinary life, and I’m only a third of the way through it. A number of my years have been spent feeling lost, trying to find a sense of purpose. I believed that there was more to life than hustling in the corporate world I had become accustomed too.
After struggling with a health scare in 2017, I was looking for more meaning and a way to heighten my spirituality. I found myself immersed in crystals; I was captivated with their beauty and soon discovered their magical ailments. I was hooked.
I knew I wasn’t exactly the text-book crystal lover. I didn’t burn incense every day, make my own voodoo dolls or belong to a group of witch enthusiasts. I was just your average modern day woman.
This in itself made me realise that there had to be other women out there in the same position as me; someone who wanted to explore their spiritual side without losing their identity. I didn’t want to be pigeon-holed into a world of spells and witchcraft.
I felt isolated in my quest and yearned to create a safe haven where I could connect with other women and help those that were on a similar journey to my own.
Polished and Raw (formerly known Crystals New Zealand) was born out of passion and a willingness to embrace the extraordinary, and to connect with beautiful souls from all over the world.
