When a friend suggested to change my necklace pendant to a healing stone, I was a little skeptic. At the time, money was short and I was feeling lethargic, had a lot of stress, and found that everywhere I went it felt like there was a dark cloud above me.
But there was one thing for certain, my life couldn't get any worse than it already was, and the bonus here was that the pendant was an extremely gorgeous garnet stone.
After a month of keeping this stone close, and thinking positively, my life turned 180 degrees. I don't believe in coincidences.
