Choosing a crystal can be overwhelming at first. There maybe such variety you don’t know which to choose. For me I still get carried away choosing crystals. I can never choose just one, forever getting carried away in the array of choices. If your needing help choosing crystals for the first time try these tips:
ASK THE UNIVERSE
Ask the universe for which crystal it wants you to have. Be loving, open and receptive to whatever crystal comes your way. Don't go into the search with too much judgement or expectations.
GOING BY YOUR FIRST GUT
When you see a range of crystals, one stone will catch your eye, and continue to hold your attention. Keep looking, then come back to see how you feel a second time about that crystal. If you still feel drawn to it, hold the crystal if possible. It’s likely that stone will be beneficial to you. However, if you are overwhelmed by choice try standing quietly for a few moments with your eyes closed, and remember the reason that you wanted to purchase a crystal. When you open your eyes choose the crystal you feel most drawn to.
PHYSICAL RECATIONS TO CRYSTALS
Relax yourself and with your non-dominant hand and pass it over the crystals. Waiting to slow enough to see if you feel a subtle "tug" from one of the stones. You may end up with three or four. If you have to choose one hold each crystal individually and see which one you gravitate towards more.
STONES FOR THERE PROPERTIES
Another way to choose a crystal is to look up a crystal for what you want to heal or any personal goal your working on. A great place to start with this is seeking the crystal that compliment any goals your you have. Look up meaning of crystals that catch your eye. It’s possible that the properties of said crystal will assist you in your journey.
When buying a crystal from an internet site it’s is not possible to hold or feel the energy of crystals. Take your intuition one step further. Browse through the pictures and note which most appeals to you. You may feel excited by the picture of a particular crystal, with a powerful urge to touch and feel it. Consider revisiting it the next day and if you still feel the same about that crystal then go for it. Its likely that on some level it has something to offer you. Look up the properties of the crystal afterwards and see how this fits your needs.
NOTHING IS CALLING MY NAME!
No worries. Purchases relating to spiritual growth is sensitive, and sometimes the timing just isn't right. If nothing strongly appeals to you, accept that the time is not right and try again on another day. Beware of buying crystals purely because that is what you set out to do as this could result in a collection of crystals unsuited to your needs and not beneficial.
The best way to is to Expect the Unexpected - sometimes i set out to buy a specific crystal and end up purchasing something completely different. Be prepared to have your unconscious lead you to a different crystal. The unconscious or higher self doesn’t get involved with life's day-to-day clutter and thus can get straight down to the business of selecting the most appropriate crystal for you. This is why the best approach to choosing a crystal is to quieten your mind and simply do what feels satisfying.
