How to know what crystal is right for you
Searching for a crystal can be overwhelming, intuitively choosing a crystal will often lead you to find the one you need the most. However, if you are not familiar with listening to you intuition, we have some tips to help you find the best crystal for you.
Each crystal has unique properties that change our energy field in different ways. So, whether you’re interested in spiritual self-development, protection, health or general well-being, there are multiple crystals that align to this energy. Once you’ve decided on your intention you can significantly narrow down your options.
Don’t choose a stone solely because of its size, shape, cost, color, shine or sparkle though – these are contributory factors, but not essential. Sometimes the most improbable crystal will be the one best aligned to you. You should be looking to feel a connection. If it just feels like a rock in your hand then it is not right for you. Close your eyes and allow your senses to do the work. You also should not worry about making a bad choice. When you find the perfect crystal, you’ll fall in love with it. Even if it’s not the one you originally meant to buy! All gemstones hold the imprint of their specific structure and energy, so any crystal of a specific type will support your intentions. What we’re tinkering with is a specific crystal’s vibration and how it resonates with your particular energy field.
If you get a powerful tingling sensation as you hold a crystal, buy that crystal! When you’re holding a crystal or looking at a picture, try and feel the energy that emanates from it. Does it give you a sense of calm or inner knowing? Does it fill you with excitement or the sense of possibilities? Do you feel physical sensations such as heat or tingling? Any positive emotions indicate it’s a good choice.
If you’re in a store, you can also pick up various crystals and note how you feel. If you find yourself drawn back to a stone you’ve already put down, this is the one that wants to come home with you. You may also feel that you can’t put down a specific crystal. Trust those feelings and whatever crystal you choose will be the perfect one for you.
