The Crystal Heart Story
So how did we begin ? They say a thousand mile journey begins with the first step ~ which is valid in that you do have to take that first step ! But I feel my life experience has added an inner meaning ~ that if your first step is taken for the right reasons, then that journey will be successful.
Let's backtrack to where I began. Born in UK, a fairly normal kid, except for feeling connected, having a big imagination, communing with Trees, etc. All of which I kept secret. Tried to be normal, got to Uni, studied Geochemistry at King's hated the maths and dropped out. Got a degree in Computers and Cybernetics at Canterbury, vowed I'd never work in computers again, but got a job as a seismologist for an Oil Exploration Company in the Middle East. Now all this time I'd been studying Tarot, reading Philosophy like Chardin, Blavatsky, Krishnamurti. Writing mystical poetry, teaching myself Yoga. Typical Scientist, right ? Bit of a conflict here between science and psyche ! So there I am in a red neck crew in Abu Dhabi, fitting in haha. So i decided to take the next leave in India. Sure Goa was fun ( in the 70s it was still the 60s ) but I met some Aussie Nurses into Yoga and followed them to Pune to study with Iyangar. On the train met a S.African Psychologist dressed in red. Had a great conversation Yeah I admit it a bit of Ganja helped :-)
Anyway, he suggested I check out the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh Ashram as being a better fit for me. He was right ! I checked out Iyengar, couldn't handle the Ego there, popped into said Ashram and had my mind blown ! This Bhagwan, now known as Osho was an intellectual spiritual Iconoclast. I mean, I had no time at all for cults but this guy made sense, and he made it beautifully. What I learned there would be a book in itself. Suffice it to say that this awesome Guru taught me Meditation and release from conditioning. Furthermore he encouraged us to walk our own path independent of him.
So I left Pune and moved to the Himalayas with Dhyan, the Australian girl I'd met. Well, that's another whole story, but there I learned the power of Tibetan Buddhism and more importantly for this ~ the power of crystals ! So after this enormous period of change/integration I arrive in Perth with her daughter wondering how I can support this family. Has a lovely chat with the lovely Chandrika who founded MoonRhythms in Freo, but there were too many involved. Sat back ~ and now we go back to the beginning ~ and asked myself the big question. How can I support myself and this family using my new skills, being my own boss, with no money ?
Answer? Go to the Subi Car Park Market and read Tarot ! Yes, my firends, that's how Crystal Heart began.So my first step was for the right reasons. I had no idea it would end in this awesome business of Crystal Heart. But the first step continues. We care for our staff and customers as family. Because we're all on the same journey.
