I met my friend Andrea (DiscoCrystalMama on Etsy) my freshman year at Emerson College in Boston in 1989. We lived in the same haunted dorm at 4 Charlesgate East our freshman year, and we shared a couple of classes our freshman and sophomore years. After that, our respective majors took us in two different directions, and we didn’t see each other again until graduation day in 1993. Seeing her again was pure joy.
We always had a good connection, but we didn’t find out how magical that connection truly was until several years later when she found me on social media in 2008. We began emailing each other daily about a lot of different things, but the main bond we created through these emails was of a spiritual nature. Crystals. Dream interpretations. Shared encounters with spirit.
It was Andrea who first began hearing the word “Akasha” when she attempted to meditate or slipped into the Alpha State. I had already seen the term “Akashic Records” in crystal guidebooks, but I had only read a definition in a guidebook glossary, so I didn’t know much. This sent both of us researching the topic and sharing our finds via email. We haven’t actually seen each other in person since our graduation day in May 1993, but we HAVE spent countless hours on the phone and messaging back and forth via text and FaceBook Messenger for years now.
We both experienced some particularly low times in which we leaned on one another for emotional and spiritual support. We shared a key phrase at the ends of our long emails or short messages: Vibe Up!
At one point, Andrea created a t-shirt with the phrase and sent it to me as a gift.
Now that her own daughter is heading into her senior year of high school, Andrea has recreated the t-shirt and is selling them on her Etsy shop to raise money for her daughter’s college tuition. She asked if I would share the link here on my website for my readers who may like to wear some great spiritual advice, and I said OF COURSE!!! It’s the least I can do for my friend I nicknamed YODA for her wisdom and sage advice during my emotional and spiritual struggles way back when.
So check out DiscoCrystalMama on Etsy! The shirt is amazing, and it makes an inspiring gift. It’s also available in a wide variety of colors and sizes (up to 4XL).
Don’t forget to VIBE UP!!! 🙂
