I have been asked the question, “How do you select a crystal?” countless times. I always respond with, “There are many factors that determine which crystals to purchase. You are probably experiencing an energetic imbalance within the mind, body or spirit. But ultimately, you do not choose a crystal. The crystal chooses you.”
Many people have told me that they became interested in crystals or crystal healing because they were attracted to one particular stone that spoke to them. This initial purchase sparked their curiosity and subsequent interest to learn more. There is always a reason why one crystal is unique to you among many others. Have you ever realized that you could hold practically identical gemstones but one of them feels more like it resonates with you? You may sense that vibe of connection and/or comfort. That is definitely the crystal you need to take home.
Each crystal gives off its own energy. Individuals can further their decision-making by studying the healing properties of crystals and selecting which one applies to their current physical, mental or spiritual need. Researching the fundamental qualities is a wonderfully informed approach. There are so many stones to choose from and unless we are independently wealthy we normally must be selective. Most of us cannot afford to buy one of everything, so purchasing a crystal for a specific need after much contemplation is completely acceptable.
As a psychic, I rely more on my intuitive reaction to a particular stone. My initial reaction once I touch is usually my guide. I trust my inner voice. I allow my senses to envelope me. I feel how the energy of the crystal interacts with my own energy. We are either well suited or not. Pay close attention to what stones you are attracted to because they will probably be the ones that are in tune with your current state of balance within your body. On the other hand if you are turned off by a particular stone, this often represents qualities of energy that you are not ready to deal with and at the present cannot cope with. With time this might change so don’t completely rule it out.
Some stones may bring about a strong urgency of release (release of stress, fear or burden) and it may cause you to feel uneasy or uncomfortable. Again, if you feel resistance, this stone should be remembered for a later date of purchase when you are experiencing different situations in your life.
All in all I would say that when choosing a crystal for yourself, a balance of a rational well-informed approach mixed with magical intuitive senses should conclude with a successful selection.
