This is not the end-all, be-all of crystal healing. Rather, this is just one small article, so be sure to read the rest of the posts in this series in the list below. If you find this subject as fascinating as I do, please continue reading to learn a few basic tips and techniques for selecting the right crystal healing stones for you.
How to Select the Right Crystal Healing Stones
There is an amazing number of different types of crystals available in nature. Incredibly, each one of them possesses its own unique healing attributes for spirit, mind, and body balance. In fact, many believe that crystals promote the insurgence of positive energy while eliminating negative energy.
This healing process leads to many spiritual, emotional, and physical benefits. Some of the benefits of indulging yourself in this beautiful experience are self-acceptance, mindfulness, or simply the need to relax your anxieties.
The fields of science and spirituality are converging in the modern age. What was once thought ‘hocus-pocus’ is now a scientific fact. Of course, it’s no different for crystals. Interestingly, the energy of crystals is measurable scientifically. Even with that, many people still find it thinly stretches their beliefs to use crystals to heal themselves.
If you don’t believe, that naturally affects the healing qualities of the stones you select. So, if one wants to make the most out of these energies, you must start with an open mind. Then, you may select a crystal that matches your frequency, and what you want to gain from the crystal.
What is a Crystal Healing stone?
Crystal healing defines as an alternative therapy that uses crystals to restore the balance in the life of an individual. Crystals have an unchanging and stable energy pattern, which has a unique energy field or resonance and frequency.
This energy field is the reason behind the amazing properties of crystals. These crystals act as tuning forks and help restore balance in the highly chaotic energy field of the human body.

How You Select Your Crystal Matters
Now the question arises: how to choose a crystal? How do you know if the gemstone you pick is the right one for you? The answer lies in your intuition. You should choose your crystals from your gut.
So, you must rely on your senses while picking up a stone. Your senses drive you toward the stone that you need rather than your brain forcing you to pick one that you think you need.
When you start looking for a crystal in this manner, you must trust your inner energy, the cosmic energy, and the energy of the stone. It is the feel, color, and aura of the stone that attracts your energy to it.

Trust the Personal Relationship
Also remember, there is no wrong way to select the crystals that best fit your needs. Rather, it’s the personal relationship with the energy of the crystals that makes the healing difference. For instance, if you feel the energy of the crystal – what does it feel like? Is it warm or cold? Is it magnetic? Do you sense this? Do you feel a pull towards this crystal?
Here is a list of questions to ask yourself before shopping for the right crystal. Also, be sure to take your time throughout this process to ensure the best match between you and your crystals. Also, (smile) set a budget and stick to it because it’s so easy to overspend when shopping for crystals. I speak from experience…
- For what purpose do you intend to use the crystal?
- Do you know which crystals appeal the most to you?
- What color of crystals are your favorites?
- The sizes of the crystals are vast. What size do you want?
- Have you thought about the configurations of several crystals?
- Do you prefer opaque or clear crystals?
- What quality draws you to a crystal?
- Are you a cut and polished person or do you want natural formations?
- Do you want lots of small polished crystals or a few larger crystals?
- This brings up the next question. How much do you want to pay?
- Is it important to you to select your own crystals or will you also receive them as a gift?
- Do you have a good crystal supplier or do you need to do more research and find one?

Go for the Real Thing!
Never settle for synthetic or imitation crystals for healing. Why? Because all healing is based on tuning in to the natural vibrations and energies of the mineral you select. Remember, everything is energy and you are matching or enhancing your energies when you carefully select your crystals.
Needless to say, without any scientific proof to back their efficiency, one might be skeptical about healing crystals. If that’s the case, you won’t get much from them, but neither is there any harm done.
Crystal healing requires an open mind to accept the positive qualities and vibrations from these beautiful bounties of nature. Moreover, it doesn’t matter what you are seeking. So, I invite you to give crystal healing a try. Who knows what the crystals might have in store for you!
