Which is the best crystal for me? Or how do I choose the best crystal for me?
The best crystal for you is the one that speaks, or appeals to you. A crystal does not have to be rare or expensive to be the most effective. Don’t be taken-in by price, or by big, bright and shiny, for when it comes to crystal power, cost, size and appearance don’t matter much. These glamour crystals are not automatically the most effective. Nor are they necessarily the best crystal for you. Often, small, misshapen and less attractive crystals have the same power – and they cost a great deal less.
When you are buying a crystal in person, take notice of which one catches your attention first. It will almost certainly be the one for you. If you are looking the best crystal among many and you can’t decide on which one, simply plunge your hand into the assortment and take one. Believe it or not, the one that is in your hand is the one for you.
Essentially, the power of your subconscious mind aligns with the frequency of the best crystal for you. Your hand is then drawn to and selects your best choice.
Keep in mind that everybody is different – we all vibrate at and radiate different frequencies. We all have different attitudes and different family patterns. Consequently, there is no one magic ‘cure-all’ crystal for everyone. (Clear Quartz does come close though). What works well for you won’t necessarily work for your friend, but there will be another crystal that does. So don’t be afraid to select and use crystals intuitively, or to experiment rather than following what someone else says.
Some additional information for first time crystal users.
A simple explanation of crystal healing: Remember, that most illness is really ‘dis-ease’. There is usually some underlying emotional, mental or spiritual condition manifesting itself as an illness or disease. Crystals gently address these underlying circumstances and restore holistic balance. In order to achieve this it is important to choose a crystal whose properties or energies are a good match.
There are many excellent books out there that can help with this. Among them are The Crystal Bible and Crystal Prescriptions, both authored by Judy Hall. And of course our own book An Introduction to Crystals and Healing Stones. These are available at our on-line store www.mycrystalaura.com.au
Looking after your best crystal is another important thing.
Many crystals absorb negative energies, so they need regular cleaning to prevent them from becoming overstressed and working inefficiently. An easy way to do this is to place them under running water for a couple of minutes. You can then put them out in the sun for a couple of hours to recharge their energies. They can also be left overnight in brown rice or salt (but not if they are layered or friable). They may also be placed on a large Quartz or Amethyst cluster, or placed with Carnelian to cleanse and re-energise them.
