How To Choose The Right Crystal?

How To Choose The Right Crystal?

Historically crystals have been used for centuries across diverse ranges of cultures and peoples.

Crystals and gemstones, like ourselves, have energetic vibrations. We, as spiritual beings, are naturally receptive to the vibrations of these crystals and gemstones. Spiritually, this energy is said to amplify from the crystal to you as well as the physical environment around you, which facilitates a free flow of energy. In essence, it has a powerful spiritual and vibratory effect when placed directly on someone or in a physical space such as a home or an office space.

Whether you are choosing your first crystal, adding to your existing collection, buying a crystal for someone special, or are not sure which gemstone to purchase, how do you choose the right one for you? Here are a few tips to help you:

1. Identify Your Intentions and Trust Your Intuition 

Choose a crystal based on your intuition by closing your eyes and allow your senses to do the work. You can consider what catches your eye first, or which crystal do you feel most energetically drawn towards or to pick up. You may be drawn to a specific crystal, shape, colour, energy, or meaning. 

In any case, before you start the search looking for the right gemstones and crystals, you can also have a think about what you are looking for and what you would like to achieve. For instance, are you looking for a crystal specifically for spiritual growth, abundance, spiritual or psychic protection, or healing? This is an easy way to choose a crystal that resonates with your own intention and goals. Whilst all crystals help to spiritual balance and protect ones mind, body, soul, and spirit, all crystals have their own properties and spiritual significance.

Alternatively, you could also use a pendulum to decide which is the right crystal for you!

2.  Buying the Right Crystal For Someone Else

If buying a crystal or gemstone for someone else, you might want to close your eyes and/or intentionally think of this person as well as their personality and energy to guide you energetically towards the right crystal. 
Use your intuition for what they may need in their life at this moment in time. For instance, a Rose Quartz as a reminder to prioritise self love and embrace themselves. 


3. Choosing a Crystal based on a specific Chakra

Choose a crystal that aligns and/or is associated with a specific chakra. For instance, the throat, third-eye, heart, crown, solar plexus, sacral, or base/root chakra. In short, there are 7 spiritual centres that represent our bodies from the top of our heads to the end of feet. These centres are largely associated and linked to our spiritual and emotional being. Ensuring these centres are balanced and not blocked is crucial to our wellbeing, mind, body, and soul. Each chakra is also represented by a colour. By identifying specific chakras that are blocked or unbalanced, you can choose a crystal that you can use to best guide you


4. Choose a crystal based on your astrological or zodiac sign
