Choosing Crystals For Healing Or Meditation

The information gathered here is provided only as a guide. You are encouraged to discover additional and other intuitive techniques. Please let us know as well.

Crystals traditionally have been chosen by sight and intuition, usually in the presence of several possible choices. This site provides most kinds of crystals or gemstone, so you can choose which type of gem that fits your needs and personality. The many references in this site help facilitate that. Crystals Jewelry will choose which one. As described below, when we are choosing a crystal for an order, we use the name of the individual, and consciously try to choose the best one.

If you are choosing a crystal for a specific purpose: for a gift, for healing, meditation, etc., that purpose should be held in mind and/or projected to the crystals.

Should you wish to choose a quartz crystal or a gemstone for one of your friends who, perhaps, lives some distance away from you, or are purchasing them over the Internet, follow exactly the same principles as if you were choosing a personal stone for yourself but on this occasion visualize, as strongly as possible, a picture of your friend within your mind’s eye. With a little practice you will soon discover that it is very easy to select just the right quartz crystal or gemstone for you, or any of your friends who are unable to choose a stone in person for themselves.

Some individuals, when choosing a crystal will sense an energy response from a certain crystal. Some responses can be in the form of: a flash of light, a vibration, a resonance, a tingling sensation, a euphoric awareness or even the sense that the crystal jumping up and down and saying “pick me!”.

All crystals and gemstones and matter (for that matter) “vibrate” at their own individual frequency. In that respect they are similar to us.

We have all had the experience of meeting a perfect stranger for the very first time and either liking that person immediately or feeling an antipathy towards them – without in any way being able to explain our feelings or emotions.

The coming together of two minds, two spirits or two physical bodies, both “vibrating” at the same frequency tend to have an affinity for each other.

Crystals and gemstones should be chosen in this way. It is important that the stones which we choose and use should “vibrate” on a frequency as close as possible to our own. Individual methods of choosing crystals and gemstones vary from person to person but normally include:

  • Intuitively you will instinctively “know” which stone you should choose and which is “right” for you! You might feel as if the stone is jumping up and down shouting, “Me! Me! Me! Choose Me!” Or you might sense or even “see” a strong crystalline white light radiating from the stone and attracting you like a magnet. Others simply have a liking for a particular type of gemstone or crystal.
  • Run your hand (either your left or right hand depending upon which you prefer to use) over all the stones available for selection. You will soon discover that one stone will “stick” to your hand as if it is “tacky” or surrounded with glue. This is your stone.
  • Close your eyes and quietly meditate for a few moments. Then open your eyes very quickly and pick the very first stone to which your eye becomes naturally drawn.

Should you happen to be a competent dowser then you should be able to select the most appropriate stone by using your own individual dowsing techniques.

Sometimes you truly feel as if your stones are actually choosing you! This has happened to me.

When the personal “attraction” to a crystal is over, personal need is over. When you a “finished” with a certain crystal in your life, the universe will facilitate the presence of the new earth-keeper and will draw that person to you. You will know.
