Pick The Right Crystal Every Time

You like crystals.  Nay…you love crystals.  Holding them, looking at them, getting a sense of their energy and how they can help you in your life.  But you feel like you don’t know enough about all the crystals out there so when it comes time to pick out a stone for something you feel a bit at a lost.  Maybe you always go to the same 2 or 3 stones that you know inside and out but you wish you could confidently pick something else for a change.  I get you!  I there once was a time that I only ever used clear quartz, rose quartz, and amethyst for pretty much everything because they felt familiar and safe.  But there are a couple really simple ways to always pick the right stone every time.

Crystals are great because they are energetic tools that you don’t need to actually do anything with to get their benefit other than carry them or place them in your space.  It’s always a good idea to cleanse/tune stones first, and maybe even program them if you feel called to, and then you’re off and running.

But which stones should you use?  And how can you always know you have the right stone for you and your needs?

It’s way easier than you think.  You don’t need to know a ton of stuff about the stone and you don’t have to spend days or weeks doing research.  There are two super simple ways to pick your stones and get it right every time.

How does the energy feel? What draws you intuitively? Photo Credit: Eva Crowder via Compfight cc

#1 Go With Your Gut – Use Your Intuition

I know that you might look at your crystals and stones and think “Eh, it’s just a rock.  What is this really going to do for me?”  The truth is that they are actually living things with their own energy field and aura.  They are alive!  It’s their living energy that does the work to heal and help us.

It’s also this aura that draws us to them.

When you need to pick out a stone and you have a bunch to choose from and you aren’t sure which to use, lay them all out in front of you and take some time to let your intuition guide you.  You may find that one just seems to draw your attention, maybe the light seems to be shining directly on one and making it stand out from the others. Does one seems to just call your name?

You can also hold your non-dominant hand {the one you don’t write with} over the stones to literally feel the energy and see if one “tickles” your aura or seems to reach out for you. When you find one that speaks to you, don’t question it, take that one and use it.  Your energy field that of the stone are connecting!

When in doubt just let the energy of color guide you.

#2 Let Color Be Your Guide

Color is also another way to pick the right stone for you and your needs every time you need one.  Color itself is an energy and vibration.  This is part of the energy field of your crystals and can help you get an idea of what they can be used for.

You might be wondering how you know what a color may mean then.  Think of the chakra colors.  Each chakra and it’s color associates with a specific part of the body, certain illnesses and conditions, as well as specific kinds of energies and emotions.

While there are specific stones that traditionally are used with these energy centers and their related bits and pieces, the color range still carries the same basic energies despite the little differences that each stone may have.

So for instance you may see that green stones are used for things related to the heart chakra and that green aventurine is traditionally used.  You don’t have that but you have another green stone, malachite. It really doesn’t matter what specifically malachite may be used for because it’s the color frequency in the energy field that will do the trick.

If you’re not familiar with chakras and color frequencies for healing you can grab this free printable I made for you to help you better understand what colors to use for your healing needs!  Then just match up the crystal color to what’s on the chart.  BOOM!  You’re on your way!

Jess is a great teacher, as well as an insightful reading and a wonderful healer. Her lessons are informative and easy to understand. Her cards speak to her in a way that I hope mine will to me one day. I have also had a Chakra session and a Reiki session with her and afterward I felt at peace, balanced, and whole again (I was quite sick at the time). I trust very few people, and I follow my path alone, but I trust Jess. She’s a beautiful spirit.

When I started coaching with Jess I thought I was coming to her for help with a breakup and an unexpected and sudden international move. It turned out that wasn't the real issue at all! Jess asked questions I never would have thought to ask myself and gave me a whole new perspective on what was going on in my life. She made me feel like what I want matters. By the time we were done I felt like I could take on the world!

OMG I'm blown away by the accuracy of the reading. Jess has a special gift. What she revealed to me, opened me up to a place I knew I should be at but was holding myself back from.

I was so overwhelmed trying to get back into my witchcraft practice, but Jess helped me create an actual plan and a schedule for doing the work. The results in just two months has been far beyond my expectations. I'm in touch with my power like never before!
