The Crystal Story

A Chapter from the book by Mark Bajerski Seeing The Invisible

One sunny morning, many years ago, I sat sipping tea at a café in a mountain village in Spain where I live. A dear friend of mine came passing by. With a big smile on her face, she walked up to me, kissed my cheek and said, “I have a gift for you, Mark.” She took what looked like a stone out of her pocket. It was red with little brown dots. I thanked her and she went on her way. In that moment, I had no idea that what she had just given me was about to change my understanding of crystals for the rest of my life.

When the time came for us to say our goodbyes, I couldn't help but gift this stone to the little girl. There was no option for me, as she had clearly claimed it with all her heart. Three weeks went by when I received a phone-call from the same lady; a call that shook my entire foundation and opened me up to the astonishing powers of crystals.

“Mark,” she said, “I have something I must share with you now. When we were having tea together, I never mentioned my daughter's problems. She had suffered from severe night terrors for the last three years — waking up at 3am every night and screaming. Since she has had your stone with her, these terrors have stopped. And to top all this off, the bullying she was suffering at school has stopped too!”

“Have you done or changed anything in your life or at home that could have triggered the release of her nightly terror
