Different Ways to Choose Crystals
A crystal is a container and transmuter of energy. Crystals can either be intuitively chosen for us or picked with a particular purpose kept in mind. When it comes to making a choice rationally and logically we should first investigate what kind of specific energy we are looking for?
Then we should ask ourselves, are we looking to transmute, enhance, heal, protect or compensate for it? The answer to this will help make the process easier. There will be different crystals for love and different for manifesting abundance.
Research Is Your Best Friend
Next comes the step of understanding how you plan on seeking this answer. There will be many categories that you can look through and explore to understand how crystals can affect your journey. Crystals can be categorized by the different chakras they heal, through zodiac signs, elements, colour, size, shape and what rituals they are to be used for. Depending on each category, you can narrow down the energy you seek.
For example, let’s start with the shape. A tumbled-smoothed-down crystal will have gentler energy in comparison, to its rough natural form which retains the original intensity. Many healers prefer the latter in a larger size as it provides stronger efficient energy for their work. For further enhancement of energy, some may even choose crystals carved with symbols or images of deity that fit their intention.
Sixth Sense Knows Best
However, an old popular way is just simply to trust your intuition. Holding the crystal you are drawn toward will help you tune into its energy and see how it connects with your current state. Is this the state you’re seeking? Being visually attracted or drawn to pick a crystal is one way your inner guidance can show up.
If all else fails, we can also use a tool to channel it and make a more obvious choice such as working with a pendulum to ask yes or no.
