How do I choose a crystal?
There are two main ways to choose a crystal... with your intuition or based on your intention. If you aren’t sure what you want to work on, letting your intuition guide you to the energies you need is one of my favorite ways to select stones. Because each crystal has a unique vibrational energy, your intuition will guide you to the stones that are right for you at that specific time in your life.
The other way to choose your crystal is by matching your intentions with a stone.. Once you have decided on a particular goal or intention you want to pursue, you can pair your intention with a crystal that has an energy that will support your intention. Here are some examples of how this works: To bring abundance into your life, Citrine helps you manifest your dreams by channeling the positive vibrations of the sun. Carnelian is a powerful crystal to get the creative juices flowing. The rosy pink Rose Quartz is the perfect crystal for love-related intentions and matters of the heart.
One way to “test” different crystals is to hold the stone in your hand...quietly think of your intention. Notice if you feel sensations such as hot or cold, pulsations, or calmness and tranquility. These are all signs that this particular rock is perfect for your healing needs.
If you’re seeking more tranquility and calm in your life, Amethyst is one of the best intention crystals for relieving stress and bringing balance back into your life. Another gemstone that helps balance out emotions is Moonstone, which gives you support when you’re feeling overly emotional or out of touch with your feelings. Rose quartz is also helpful for emotional well being because it opens and realigns the heart chakra, which magnifies feelings of self-love and the unconditional love of others.
Whether you’re seeking out gemstones for their physical beauty or to bring peace and tranquility into your life, they all work to increase your vibrational frequency. If you feel good when you hold the crystal in your hand or have it touching your skin, or even if you don’t feel the immediate effects of your stone, know that the crystals are emitting positive vibrations to help you up-level and grow.
