What are the signs a crystal is right for you? Learn how to tell if a crystal wants to work with you. Is this crystal calling you? Here are my tips you are destined to be its keeper…
There are lots of ways to choose a crystal, but there is another side to crystal shopping. With so much choice in a crystal shop, gem show or online it can be confusing.
Have you seen a crystal you had no intention of buying and now can’t get out of your head? Perhaps you’re spoilt for choice or unsure whether to make a purchase, this guide should help you.
Have A Cool Off Period
The first thing I do when I am unsure about a crystal is to think about it. Yes, there are times I will buy at first sight and have no regrets. It is usually not that simple though. Sometimes you just love the crystal but it’s outside of your budget.
I would always recommend a cool-off period if there is any uncertainty. This helps avoid impulse buying or panic buying, especially at gem shows. Yes, there is always a chance someone else will buy it before you but perhaps it wasn’t meant for you?
A cool-off period could be a day, a couple of days or a few hours if you’re at a live event or travelled location. Ideally, you should wait at least a day if possible.
1. How Does It Feel Today?
Now, after the cool off period, you should have a better sense of how you feel. Any buyer-highs or fears of losing the crystal should have passed. Ask yourself how you feel now about the crystal today.
Think about it in your mind. Do you still get a good feeling when you visualise it? Does it still call to you? If so, then these are good signs that this crystal is right for you.
2. Go For A Second Viewing
Sometimes we need to see the crystal again either in person or online. If it’s a physical shop you will be able to handle the stone and feel the energy in a more direct way. If it is online, you can scroll through the photos or video and details again. Always double-check the size.
I will often revisit a crystal several times over a few weeks. This way I can be more certain I am not buying on impulse and that the crystal still holds something. Seeing it in different frames of mind brings clarity and a balance of head and heart to your decision.
On your second, third or fourth viewing, does it still light you up? Do you feel different now? If this crystal is right for you, you should still feel the way you felt when you first saw it.
3. Can’t Get It Out Of Your Head?
This is always a big sign that a crystal is right for you. There are some crystals that you just can’t get out of your head after you find them. If the crystal keeps popping into your head at random times then it is definitely calling you!
4. Do The Crystal Properties Make Sense?
If you were looking for a specific crystal already then this does not apply. This applies if you stumbled upon a crystal that you were not expecting to find or were just browsing. Looking up the meaning and crystal healing properties from a trusted source will bring clarity and confirmation.
Do they seem like they would benefit you as a person? Is there something that they could help you with at this time? This is one of the best indications that the crystal is right for you.
Sometimes (not always) you can experience signs and synchronicities around a crystal that you are thinking about. They could come in the form of someone mentioning the same type of crystal to you. You might see people wearing the same type of stone.
People on social media might share the same crystal. Be mindful with ads online, if you found the crystal through the internet. Ads might show you the exact same crystal or a similar one just because of your browsing history, cookies and the sneaky algorithm!
I hope this was helpful to you. Just remember you don’t need all five signs. It may just be one or two of these. Do you have any more signs you would like to add to the list?
