A few years ago, I started my path into crystal healing, and it has helped me immensely to re-discover myself and build myself up. Crystal healing wasn’t easy for me, mostly because I struggled a lot to pick the right crystals for myself. And in my experience as a crystal seller & healer, a lot of my customers that are just starting their journey into crystal healing are unsure which crystal to pick for themselves. After all, most of the healing occurs when you pick the crystal you need the most at that point in time.
After a lot of research, methods, and struggles I went through finding my direction into crystal healing, one by one I found the right set of crystals for myself. To help you make your journey easier into crystal healing, here are the top three ways to pick the right crystal for yourself as a crystal healing beginner:
The Intuitive Approach
Sometimes, the best way to choose a crystal is to simply not think at all. When I started my crystal healing journey, I wanted to make an informed decision, so I dove right into the theory, exploring various crystals. However, soon after I started my extensive research I was entirely overwhelmed. There are so many crystals out there, and each and every one of them has multiple purposes - and each purpose has a different healing effect depending on the person that uses it, and the way in which it is used. Needless to say, I was confused and even more unsure where to start my crystal healing journey.
As I was dwelling over my endless options for a few days, I decided that maybe seeing the crystals in person might give me some more insight. As I entered the store, I immediately sensed a very strong connection to a crystal - Aquamarine. I simply couldn’t take my eyes off it - I wanted to have it, strongly. The shopkeeper explained to me that many people come with a specific crystal in mind, but when they enter the shop they end up purchasing another crystal because they felt a strong connection to it.
If you are unsure where to start your crystal healing journey, then giving your conscious mind a rest can be of big help. Sometimes, much like myself back then, we are so out of touch with ourselves that we bury our needs with endless thoughts and decisions when all we need is to take a deep breath and simply allow ourselves to feel our needs to make the right decision.
Simply take a rest of reading about the crystals healing properties, and look around in shops, or simply browse for some pictures of crystals on the internet. Then, when you find your interest piqued by a crystal, note its name down. If you find yourself attracted to just one crystal - great, but if you found yourself attracted to multiple crystals then simply pick the one you feel the most attracted to. Only then read up about the healing properties of the crystal you are attracted to.
Crystal healing is very extensive - it helps heal the mind, body, and spirit, with the right crystal. However, if you can’t seem to find the right crystal through research or through your intuition, it might be easier to pick a few simpler, easier crystals to work with. Let me be clear, there is no such thing as crystals for beginners, each and every crystal can be used for different levels of healing - however, some of them are easier to get in tune with when you are not really sure what you are doing at the start of your journey. In a way, some crystals are easier to work with because they can lead the way towards healing, showing you the way when you can’t see the path. In my experience, I worked with three such crystals: Amethyst, Rose Quartz, and Carnelian.
- Rose Quartz - Is a beautiful, nourishing crystal that helps in balancing the Heart Chakra and getting in touch with infinite love. If you are struggling with your love relationships, or you need to develop self-love then working with Rose Quartz is a great place to start your crystal healing journey. Later, in a higher level of healing, you can even use it to heal emotional wounds and find forgiveness for yourself. Wearing and meditating with a Natural Rose Quartz Buddha Mala can help you to ease your way into your crystal healing journey to find love and understanding.
- Amethyst - This is a calming, serene crystal that helps in balancing the Third Eye and Crown Chakra, helping you get in touch with your intuition. If you are struggling with not being able to see the bigger picture, lack of sleep, or you simply lack patience then working with Amethyst is a great place to start your crystal healing journey. Later, in a higher level of healing, you can even use it to transform energies on all levels of existence. Wearing and meditating with a Natural Amethyst Mala can help you to ease your way into your crystal healing journey to find spiritual connection and clarity.
- Carnelian - This is an amazing, crystal that simply radiates with positive, joyful energy. Carnelian helps in balancing the Sacral and Root Chakras, helping you find inner strength and motivation to push forward. If you are struggling with finding your purpose, lack of passion in your life, or simply you feel like can’t move forward then working with Carnelian is a great place to start your crystal healing journey. Later, in a higher level of healing, you can even use it to explore your purpose on Earth and remove blockages. Wearing and meditating with a Natural Carnelian Lotus Mala can help you to ease your way into your crystal healing journey to find purpose, motivation, and joy.
