Crystals have become very popular over the last few years.   Nowadays there are many people who are finding crystals for the very first time.  So much information is available online and in books and blog posts, that it can become very confusing about what crystals you should choose.  We know that crystals are beautiful, but they also possess energetic properties and unique vibrations that support your energetic body.   When selecting a crystal, it’s not just about their physical appearance, it’s also about the intuitive connection you can establish with them.  Getting out of your head and into your “Feeling Body” helps you tap into your inner guidance system and choose crystals that resonate with you on a deeper level.  Let’s explore the art of selecting crystals intuitively, allowing you to create a meaningful and transformative crystal collection.

What is your feeling body?  Your feeling body refers to your intuitive senses and the ability to sense subtle energies.  It goes beyond physical sensations and taps into emotions, intuition and energy.  When selecting a crystal, you rely on this wisdom to guide you to the stones that align with your energetic needs.  Tuning into your “Feeling Body” requires you to be present, aware, and open to subtle energies that the crystals emit.

How to Prepare for Crystal Selection.  Before you rush into the crystal selection process, it’s essential to create a calm and grounded space.  Start by finding a quiet area where you can relax and focus without distractions.  Take a few deep breaths, centre yourself and most importantly set an intention to connect with the crystal that will best serve your highest good.  Always have an open mind and heart, allowing your intuition to guide you.

Using your Power of Intuition.  Intuition is your internal compass, guiding you toward what feels right and what feels aligned with your current situation.  Choosing a crystal by trusting your intuition is important.  Start by observing your initial feelings as you browse through the crystals.  Pay attention to immediate attractions or sensations that you feel.  Does a particular stone catch your eye or “wink” at you?  Do you want to touch it or hold it?  These subtle cues can provide invaluable insights into which crystal resonates with you.  

Engage your Senses

Every crystal has a different texture, temperature, and energy that touch can sense.  Explore different crystals by running your fingers over their surfaces.  Observe their shape, texture, and any physical sensation they evoke in your body.  Some crystals may feel cool, while others feel warm and tingly.  Trust your tactile sensations as you connect with the crystals and notice any physical sensations.

Another important sense is sight.  Observe the colours, patterns, and transparency of the crystals.  Pay attention to the way they catch the light.  Do they evoke certain emotional responses within you?  Colours can have very specific associations and energetic qualities so be aware of the colours that resonate with you on a deep level.  They may be different to the normal colours you usually choose for yourself.

Energetic Vibration.  Each crystal carries a unique energetic frequency that can interact with your own energy field.  As you explore the range of different crystals, hold them in your hands and close your eyes.  Begin to sense the energy emanating from the stone.  Notice any subtle shifts in your own energy as you hold the crystal.  Does it feel calming, grounding, or has a more uplifting energy?  Trust your instincts and be guided to feelings that align with your energetic needs at that moment.

Creating a Connection with Your Crystal.  Building a connection with the crystal you have chosen is a personal experience.  Some connections may be immediate while others may take more time and exploration.  Be patient and open to the process.  Spend time with the crystals that capture your attention on that day by meditating with them or simply sitting quietly with them.  Notice the thoughts, emotions, and sensations that arrive.  Pay attention to any messages or insights that come to you during this connection time.  You may want to keep a special journal of thoughts, feelings, insights and messages so that you may track your journey with certain crystals.

Choosing crystals using your “feeling body” or intuition is a powerful way to bring transformative energies into your life.  Engaging your senses, trusting your intuition, and creating a connection with the crystals allow you to create a crystal collection that best supports your spiritual journey and enhances your well-being.  There is no right or wrong choice when it comes to crystal selection.  It is all about what resonates with you on a personal level.  Welcome to the crystal world and always allow your Feeling Body to guide you to the stones that will greatly assist you on your path.
