Hi Everyone! Welcome to Soul Sisters Designs' New Online Forum for Healing Crystal Lovers♥︎ My name is Sandra Doss and I am one of the founders of Soul Sisters Designs. I was first introduced to crystals by my soul sister and BFF Nicole back in 2011. I was going through a very difficult time in my personal life when she asked me to meet her at a local store called Angel Light in Elm Grove, WI. I had no clue what Angel Light was all about or what I was going to find there, but needed some time with my soul sister so I decided to give it a go. The minute I walked through the door I felt my tight shoulders relax, all the stress, tension and anxiety I was holding onto melt away and finally I could breathe for what felt like the first time in long time. I knew I belonged in that store and I knew the help I needed to get through this challenging time was in front of me. The energy was so serene and peaceful and I could feel the love in the air radiating upon me. It was one of the most blissful experiences of my life that I will be forever grateful for experiencing. I picked out a dozen or so tumbled crystals along with Judy Halls' The Crystal Bible book. And my journey began!!! I learned so much about myself and my own negative thought patterns, emotional wounds that needed healing and overall areas of myself that I needed to work on but either didn't see because of ego or blatantly ignored just by reading through the healing properties of each stone while I held my new crystal beauties. And that was just the beginning of the rest of my life..... We are really excited to bring this forum to life and hope it becomes a safe place to learn, share and grow from other likeminded souls. Please be advised that we really want to keep the drama out. I have left countless groups on Facebook due to the snarky, nasty, mean girl mentality that permeated the posts. I will do my best to moderate the discussions, but feel free to let me know if anything gets out of hand. I really want to stress that this is a SAFE PLACE for sharing, learning and growing. Let's not go against the good vibes that brought us together from our crystal friends and lower our vibration just because we have an opinion that others may not share. Keep in mind that this entire forum is new to me too and while I hope everything runs smoothly I know there will be bumps in the road. Please have patience with me while we sort out all details. Thank you for being a part of the group!
