From mowing lawns to healing spirits

A SEVERE allergic reaction to his former day job changed the course of Stanthorpe man Robin Adams' life.

The owner of Stanthorpe's House of Crystals once mowed lawns for the elderly, however his mother knew there was more on his cards.

“I was put here to help people and (mowing for the elderly) was a rewarding job but the week my mother passed away, I became severely allergic to grass,” Mr Adams said.

“It was the spirit world's way of saying there was more in store for me.”

Mr Adams' curiosity into the spiritual world was sparked from his mum's interest.

“My mother was interested in numerology and crystals so it was out of a promise to her I opened the store,” he said.

The store opened three months ago in Stanthorpe Plaza and Mr Adams, with wife Leanne, were thrilled with the community response.

“People are very supportive and we've had a lot of positive feedback but, for some, it's hard to explain what they don't understand,” Mrs Adams said.

“Crystals come from the earth so they contain healing properties and energy.

“People try to dissect information in an attempt to find out how and why crystals work but it's not something that can be broken down.”

The Adams said they had noticed an increased interest in their business as a result of people feeling overwhelmed by contemporary world stresses.

“Crystals have the ability to physically, mentally and emotionally heal,” Mr Adams said.

“People are concerned how modern technology is affecting their bodies. Our bodies are susceptible to electromagnetic smog so we can program crystals to combat specific ailments. I've had people come into the shop who doctors have been unable to treat.

“I'm sensitive and can receive messages from the spirit world so people often come to me when modern medicine won't work.”

Customers will be relived to know all crystals are cleansed before purchase.

“Crystals absorb both negative and positive energy so in the course of a week as many as 30 people could have touched one crystal,” Mr Adams said.

“I say a special prayer every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as a form of protection for all the crystals, the store and the centre to illuminate negative energy.”
