Finding The Right Crystals For You

To work with crystals, you'll need to choose some that are right for you. You may select a crystal to help you with a specific ailment or problem, or you might pick one simply because you like the way it looks or are drawn to it. When you work with crystals that you don't like, they may help you with buried issues that need to be brought to the surface. The following are 3 steps you can follow to find the right crystals for you.

1. Set an Intention. Before starting the process of finding a crystal or gemstone, you want to set an intention. This means you should speak out loud or to yourself about what crystal you are hoping to find.

2. Follow Your Senses. Everyone has both physical senses and intuitive senses. Physical senses include sight, smell, sound, taste, and touch. Intuitive senses include clairaudience (clear hearing), clairalience (clear smelling), clairsentience (clear feeling), clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairgustance (clear tasting), and claircognizance (clear knowing). Use all of these senses to pick the perfect crystal.

3. Wait for a Feeling. Sometimes it is as simple as a crystal simply standing out to you. If a crystal keeps grabbing your attention, it might just be the right one. Also, some crystals will vibrate or give off a form of energy when held by the right person.
