Now that you know basically, that crystals work on a vibratory level with humans, let’s take a peek at some other aspects that are involved in crystal healing.
There are a number of crystals that are generally used for healing. This range itself is quite large and most of them are easily available. Some, of course, may be a bit hard to find or not available locally.
Here is a list of some of the common ones and are good to begin with:
There are some that are artificially made, but they lack the frequency levels to be effective.
Although attractive, they do not have the natural capacity to heal. Some are even coloured to give the crystal more visual appeal, while some are just plain dyed glass. Beware of fakes! Make sure that you have been well informed about the crystal before purchase, find a reliable source to buy it from.
HOW DO I CHOOSE A CRYSTAL?
There are many ways to choose a crystal, and you can apply any of the ones mentioned below in the beginning. As you become more familiar in your own way with the energy of crystals, you will perhaps rely most on your intuition and resonance with a particular crystal, before a purchase. Depending on your goals you may want to apply any of the following:
For ACTIVATING CHAKRAS you may rely on COLOUR CORRELATION.
You may choose a stone by RESONANCE. Someone with high anxiety levels may choose a crystal with calming properties, or select a stone that resonates with their personality.
BY FIRST SIGHT is a magical way to select a crystal. It is as if the crystal chooses you! You seem drawn to its calling out to you, and there is an instant attraction. It is as if that just takes place automatically. It catches your eye, and you can’t leave without it. A bonding takes place almost immediately which can be a life changing experience.
Use a GUIDE BOOK for reference. There are many books available for referencing the crystals you intend to choose. This can help in knowing the crystal and its properties, to ensure it is most suitable for your needs, and will probably refer reliable sources to obtain them from.
DOWSING WITH A PENDULUM is another way by which you can determine whether the crystal would suit your goals at the time.
I have observed that methods to pick the one most meaningful crystal can change from time to time. There is no right or wrong way to choose a crystal that would work for you. I rely mostly on intuition and following my feelings. Sometimes there is a current of pure crystal energy that begins to vibrate no sooner that I hold it in my palm, and sometimes there will be just the information I need through an article I may happen to read. Sometimes a friend may recommend one, or I may dream of it, or it may speak to me. Being open and receptive to messages is vital! The Universe whispers in the most unexpected, magical ways!
