There are three main ways to choose a crystal:
1 | Rationally
The rational way to choose a crystal is to look up the property you are seeking on the Crystal Property page on this website or in the Crystal Directory from a crystal book. My favorite books include: The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall, The Encyclopedia of Crystals by Judy Hall, Love is in the Earth by Melody and The Book of Stones by Robert Simmons & Naisha Ahsian.
Then visit our online store, or a crystal shop and purchase the appropriate crystal. When you begin building a larger collection of stones, you will need to choose which one is appropriate to use based on what your needs are at the time.
2 | Intuitively
This requires listening to your heart instead of your head and really tuning in to the crystal. You can do this at home with your own collection or in a crystal shop.
3 | By Dowsing
This is an excellent way to choose a crystal. It harnesses your body's innate ability to tell you what is good for you and what is not.
Begin by looping your thumb and index finger together.
Slip your other thumb and finger through the loop and close them. Hold the loop over a crystal (or photo of a crystal on your computer) and ask if this one is beneficial for you.
Pull steadily. If the loop breaks, the answer is no. If the loop holds, the answer is yes.
