Here are three methods for how to choose a crystal that’s right for you, plus I’ve created a fun intuition test to try for yourself. Have you ever felt drawn to a particular crystal or even repelled by one?
You may think it was just the colour you liked or that it was just very beautiful but this was more likely your intuition guiding you to what you really need.
“I believe we naturally gravitate towards certain crystals at different times in our lives”
Sometimes things are not so clear though or we may have several options or recommendations available to us. Maybe you don’t fully trust your vibes? I’m writing this article for you so you can find ways to know which crystal is best for you. Here are three ways to select a crystal that’s right for your energy and needs.
How To Choose a Crystal For Your Needs:
1. Choose a Crystal by its Properties
If you are looking for a crystal for a specific need or purpose then you can use books or websites which are about the metaphysical properties of crystals (Abundance, Protection, Confidence…).
All good crystal books should come with an index which enables you to look up the properties, not just the name of the crystal. You can also choose the crystal by its Chakra association, more about this in my book Crystal Healing For The Chakras.
You may have several choices in which case you can see what’s available for you or use one of the following methods to make your final decision.
There are 10 crystal VIPs I recommend to those just starting their crystal healing journey. You can learn who they are and how they can help you in my YouTube video below:
2. Choose a Crystal with your Intuition
This is going with what you feel drawn to when you see crystals in a shop, photos of them online or in a book. Always go with your initial response or ‘gut feeling’.
Certain crystals should just catch your eye. Keep looking then come back to see how you feel a second time. Hold the crystal if possible, do you want to keep it in your hand? This is a good sign.
With photos see how the image makes you feel, do you feel a pull towards the crystal? Does it light you up inside? Consider revisiting it the next day and if you still feel the same then go for it! It’s always really interesting to look up the properties of the crystal afterwards and see how this fits your needs. I find this can be spooky accurate!
3. Choose a Crystal by Dowsing
This is a more advanced method unless you are already familiar with pendulum dowsing yourself.
You can ask yourself if a particular crystal is right for you while holding a pendulum. A strong yes response would be what you are looking for.
You can work through lists of crystals this way or create a crystal dowsing chart. If you want to learn more about this method do get a book on pendulum dowsing and develop this skill.
I recommend this Diane Stein’s book for learning to dowse with a pendulum or increasing your accuracy if pendulums have not worked well for you in the past Pendulums and the Light. Learn more at Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk.
Take The Test!
Here is a quick and fun way to test your intuition using the second method described above. Look at the image above of the seven crystals on the wooden shelf.
See which crystal attracts you to it the most, take your time. Choose a crystal. Then come back here and I will tell you what they could mean for you…
From top left to right they are 1 – Shamanic Dream Quartz to trust your dreams and visions. 2 – Chlorite Phantom Quartz for focusing on new aspirations. 3 – Citrine for increasing the flow of money or reducing negative thinking. 4 – Ocean Jasper for peace and calm or the need to be more patient. 5 – Aqua Aura for psychic protection or developing psychic abilities. 6 – Rutilated Quartz for filtering negative energy or increasing communication skills. 7 – Rose Quartz for comfort and greater self-love.
