The Trees of Mystery is a roadside attraction off of the 101 just South of Oregon. It used to be populated by Native Americans. They called it"The Land of Spirits."
Its filled with redwood trees which grow in various unique shapes and sizes. For instance, long ago a tree fell over yet various trees grew on top of it and it never decomposed although it was completely unattached to the soil.
The land was going to be destroyed but a man bought it and turned it into a tourist attraction. Once I got over the touristy feel, it was one of this most puzzling things I've ever seen- not to mention utterly gorgeous.
The "End of Trail" museum contains Native American artifacts accompanied by a strange feeling. If you talk to the workers, they will tell you about the Native American spirits that haunt the museum and make their presence known to them.
I took a beautiful gondola ride above the Trees of Mystery up to a viewing deck in which you could take in the mountain range and survey the Pacific Ocean. I had a moment of silence on the ride down reminding myself that I am present- peering out at the breath taking beauty in spite of the height and a shaky ride.
I also highly suggest going to the back of the shop and looking at the crystal collection. I obtained some beautiful crystals for a very low cost.
The myth behind crystals.....
Rose Quartz- Famous for attracting and keeping love, rose quartz is also used when it comes to healing one's heart from pain and disappointment.
Optical Calcite- Calcite is also a stone of spirituality and wisdom. Calcite is a protecting, grounding and centering stone, and can help bring inner peace. Since calcite also promotes creativity and imagination, this inner peace it can bring is a vibrant one.
Mica- It is said to help eliminate negative personality traits by helping one recognize them. It is used to diminish anger, hostility, and nervous energy.
Amethyst- Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience, and peace. Amethyst is a purple quartz believed by the ancient Romans to prevent drunkenness. The word amethyst comes from the Greek word "amethystus" meaning not drunken, or intoxicated.
Geode Halves- Each is unique and provides spiritual aid and growth.
Be at peace with yourself. Compare yourself to the landscape.
