Your Guide to Intuitively Choosing Crystals

Intuitively Choosing Crystals

Chances are, if you are reading this, you already love crystals. You know the basics, and you know what a good chunk of them mean or how they help you. But - do you know why you chose them? Was it the color? Was it how the description you googled matched exactly what you need? Or did you just feel something about that gem?

If you picked the latter, then you already have a head start. Sometimes you just have a knowing. A little tingle when you see a particular stone. The feeling is more than just a visual preference as well - it is something deeper.

If you would like to try picking your crystals intuitively next time you shop, here are some quick tips:

1. Know what your intention is
When you begin your search, know what you want. By that, I mean know how you want to feel when you find it. Do you want to feel safe? Energized? You can also simply ask your guides to bring you to the correct one, and enter the store with that guidance at the front of your mind.

2. Be present when shopping
Provided you are able to go into a physical store, being in the presence of all of that energy while being so open can be overwhelming. Make sure you are grounded when you enter. Have no expectations about what you may find or what you may want. If you can, touch what you are called to. If not, hover your hands above or close to different crystals and see how it feels. Some things you can be on the lookout for in terms of signs can be:
-a “deja vu” type of feeling
-a sudden catching of your eye
-emotions coming through when by the item

If you can’t go into a shop (thanks COVID!), then you can adjust for online shopping. Be grounded, go in with intention, and scroll slowly with smooth movements. Guide your eyes over each item without expectation, and see what really catches your eye. What looks familiar to you?

Simple as that!
Your intuition will become one of your most important tools when it comes to choosing spiritual tools, crystals included. Be sure to hone in on what type of process works best for you, and don’t be discouraged if the “click” does not come easy to you at first.
