How do I choose the right crystals?

.. and how do I know which crystals are good for me and which ones to avoid?

It is one of the most common questions and there are many ways to find answers to this question as there is no single right or wrong method.

I believe that listening to your intuition in all decisions is the right way to go. Therefore, I also use my intuition to choose new crystals. If I'm in a physical store, I always hold it in my hand, but if I shop online, I kind of just feel if I like the crystal. Its appearance, its energy, color and what it represents. Am I attracted to it, repelled by the crystal, or does it just not speak to me?

Many people often experience being attracted to some special crystals throughout life, which magically just fit the challenge or situation they are in. Intuition never lies. In the same way that you can feel which stones are good for you, you can also feel which stones are not suitable for you.

Although crystal healing may seem mysterious to some, choosing the right crystal for yourself is actually a simple and intuitive process. Crystals have been used for healing and spiritual development for millennia and are considered powerful tools for bringing balance and positive energy into our lives.

Define your purpose:
First of all, consider what you would like to achieve with your crystal. Crystals have different properties and energies, so it's important to know what you're looking for. Do you want more peace and balance? Want to improve your love life? Do you need increased energy or protection from negativity? Having a clear purpose will make choosing the right crystal easier. Maybe there is no purpose to it, other than you think it's beautiful. And when you have an object that is beautiful and lovely, you can be sure that it will vibrate with beautiful and loving energy for you.

Listen to your intuition:
Your inner voice is a powerful guide when it comes to choosing a crystal. Go to a crystal store or look at pictures of crystals online without reading their descriptions. What attracts you the most? Which crystal catches your eye? This could be your intuition trying to guide you towards the crystal that fits your purpose.

Try to feel the energy:
Once you find a crystal that appeals to you, try to feel its energy. This can be done by simple touch. Hold the crystal in your hand and feel its texture and temperature. Close your eyes and see if you can feel any kind of vibration or energy emanating from the crystal. Some people experience a warm or tingling sensation, while others simply feel a deep connection.

Learn about the properties of the crystal:
After listening to your intuition and feeling the energy of the crystal, it is a good idea to read up on its specific properties. Find out how this crystal can help you with your purpose. There are many books and online resources that describe the metaphysical properties of various crystals.

Be open to change:
When choosing a crystal, remember that its effects can vary from person to person. Be patient and open to the changes it may bring to your life. It may take some time before you notice its full effect, so be patient with yourself.

Caring for your crystal:
To maintain the crystal's energy and cleanse it of any negative influences, make sure to cleanse it regularly. This can be done by letting the crystal rest in direct sunlight for a few hours, placing it on a selenite plate, or using incense such as white sage or palo santo to purify it.

Use your crystal in daily rituals:
Integrate your crystal into your daily routine to amplify its effects. You can meditate with it, wear it as jewelry, place it under your pillow at night, or just keep it close to you during the day. The more you work with your crystal, the stronger your connection to it becomes.

Remember that choosing a crystal is a personal experience and there are no wrong answers. Your intuition and feelings will guide you to the crystal that best suits your needs at that time. Be open and trust the process and you will discover how crystals can enrich your life with their beauty and energy.
