Which crystals to use for specific goals & intentions:
TO MANIFEST LOVE: ROSE QUARTZ OR OTHER PINK CRYSTALS
Pink stones connect to the heart, which is why they make some of the best crystals for intentions related to love. By opening your heart and filling you with the energy of love, these crystals help you manifest love of all kinds. Whether you are searching for a romantic partnership, a deeper connection to the people in your life, or greater self-love, pink stones are ready to help you manifest more love in your life.
TO CLEAR YOUR ENERGY: SELENITE OR OTHER WHITE/CLEAR CRYSTALS
If your energy feels heavy or dense, or you feel as if there is a grey cloud hovering above you, the bright and light energy of clear and white stones are the perfect match for that lower vibrational energy. These stones can help to clear out the energetic grime from your aura, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
TO RELAX & SLEEP SOUNDLY: AMETHYST OR OTHER PURPLE CRYSTALS
The calming and peaceful energy of Amethyst and other members of the purple crystal family are just what you need to relax and unwind. At the end of a long day, or before you head to bed, allow the crystal to calm your thoughts so you can rest and recharge.
TO ATTRACT WEALTHY & LUCK: JADE OR OTHER GREEN CRYSTALS
The color green represents growth, which makes green crystals the perfect stones to help you manifest financial growth. Use these stones to call in the energy of abundance, prosperity and success in the financial department.
How to use your crystals:
The ways to work with crystal energy are truly endless, but here are some of the easiest and most effective ways to use them:
- Carry them with you. You can place the stones in your purse or pocket to keep them close throughout the day. Hold the stone in your hands whenever you want to connect with its energy.
- Place them in your space. From your office to your home, you can place crystals in any room or space. Whenever you look at or see your crystal, allow it to remind you of your intention.
- Meditate with them. For a deeper healing session, hold your stone as you breathe and meditate. Let the energy of your crystal radiate energy all around you as you meditate.
Once you get started working with crystal energy, you’ll never look back. And though it may seem daunting at first, let your intuition guide you to the right crystals for you and let your crystal support you in all areas of your life.
