Whether your a newbie to the world of crystals or looking for your newest addition to an extravagant collection, the pursuit of purchasing a crystal can become an overwhelming experience.
Crystals come in an endless amount of sizes, shapes, textures, cuts and colours, all so beautifully breathtaking. With such an array of options to choose from it is no wonder this perplexing task may have you asking yourself, what are the methods to the madness?
Well what if I told you that shopping for a crystal is actually easier then you may think! All you have to do is believe in your intuition, and I'm here to help you with the rest.
There are three methods of choosing crystals that I will share here today, methods that I personally use when purchasing my crystals. Methods that not only allow you to channel your spiritual gift of intuition, but help you to build a stunning crystal collection that you feel deeply and energetically connected with.
1) Let the crystal choose you.
Everything in the universe vibrates at its own frequency, and crystals are no exception. You too vibrate frequencies, and when you understand this concept and become aware of your own body of energy, you will begin to experience other energy fields communicating with yours.
Taking the time to understand your energy body (more popularly known as Chakras) allows you to acknowledge and grow sensitivity to this area. This can be done through regular practices of meditation and Reiki sessions.
"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibrations." - Nikola Tesla
Everything vibrates at its own specific frequency, some lower and some higher. When you come into contact with a crystal that vibrates at a similar frequency then you, you will feel it communicating with your energy body.
This crystal will shout out to you for attention, you will know this because you will automatically be drawn to this crystal. When you are around or touching this crystal you will feel grounded and at peace, this being crystal's energy body synchronising with and amplify yours. This is this crystal for you, all you have to do is trust what your intuition is telling you.
2) Research crystals for their properties, choose one that resonates with you.
As all types of crystals differ in frequency, so do their properties. For example, tiger's eye is a stone very popularly carried for emotional balance and self-esteem healing. A black tourmaline is a stone that many place at entrance ways of their home for protection of negative energies. Choosing a crystal upon its properties is a very popular method to choose a new crystal.
Try doing some research on crystals and their properties. Did you find any information on any particular crystal that resonated with you? Perhaps you found yourself drawn to a Agelite crystal because you deeply resonate with throat Chakra energy of communication and speaking your truth. Or perhaps you found your self attracted to the mysterious feminine frequencies of the Moonstone.
The way to understand what resonates with you is again, trust your intuition. Your intuition is more powerful then you realise, it could even be helping you find your way to something you didn't even realise you needed!
3) Use your goals as inspiration.
Crystals not only vibe with our energy and are gorgeous to look at, but they also serve as great manifestation tools. Charging your crystals with loving and positive intentions and placing them strategically around your home is a powerful way to aline positive energy behind your intentions. For example placing a Citrine crystal (the stone of positivity, joy and good fortune) in your office energetically amplifies clarity, focus and confidence in your work space.
"Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but to get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics." -Albert Einstein.
So what are your future goals? Is it to find love? Perhaps you need some assistance from the Rose Quartz to help open and stimulate your heart chakra. Or maybe your goals include a fruitful career, surround your work space with some Citrine to energetically open you up to receiving good fortune. Spiritual Enlightenment? Try using some Amethyst in your meditation space to calm your thoughts and aid in emotional clarity. What ever your goals may be, there are many different crystals that can aid you in your specific paths.
I hope you have found that at least one if not all of these featured methods help you find your way through understanding how to choose the right crystal for your energy, needs and desires. Don't forget to nurture your crystals by cleansing, charging and activating them with loving and positive intentions.
