Choosing the right crystal from the myriad of available options can be a daunting task. While you do not need to know the properties of every crystal, it helps to have a system to select one. You may want a particular crystal to help with a certain issue or health ailment. Here are a few ways you can use to pick the right crystal for you.
When you first look at a range of crystals, often one will catch your eye in the beginning and keep your attention throughout. This likely means that the stone will be beneficial to you. Intuition is a great way to make your decision.
If nothing drew your eye when you first looked, try closing your eyes and recalling why you are purchasing a crystal in the first place. When you open them again, you have a second chance at using your first sight. Choose the crystal you feel drawn the most to; this is your stone.
Sense the crystals
Another way to decide if a crystal is right for you is to look at it and try to sense its vibrations. Different crystals vibrate in unique frequencies that some people are sensitive enough to feel. Developing your vibration sensitivity is as easy as holding a large clear quartz crystal in your hand.
Some crystals have a regular energy pulse; others can feel unusually cold or warm. Sometimes a crystal will produce a slight tingling sensation on the skin. You may not even be able to describe the sensation you get from the crystal that feels right to you. This method works best when you have a wide variety of crystals to choose from.
Receive a crystal
Receiving a crystal as a gift is an intimate and precious event. As you start to get more familiar with crystals, you may even start “finding” them, or rather they will find you. It is common for a gifted crystal to be exactly what you need at that moment, whether you know it or not.
Losing a crystal is also a common occurrence, but many times these crystals go missing because they have served their purpose and are no longer needed. Though it can be frustrating to lose an item you have bonded with, sometimes it is time to let go.
Leave your expectations at the door. Often you will be set on buying a specific crystal and end up buying one that is totally different. Your unconscious is free and clear to make decisions without involving the clutter of your life and will do so if needed. The best way to choose is to use your intuition and feeling, instead of your conscious mind.
Crystals can also be beneficial in helping you with your vision.
