How do you know which ones are right for you?
There are so many different ways to choose crystals. The good news is that there is no wrong way- just listen to your intuition and go with what feels right. If you want Mystiques Enchantments to help select for you, please contact us.
Another common way to search for stones is based on their metaphysical associations. Common associations people often look for include everything from cleansing and protection, to peace and abundance and more! Here are some popular associations and some crystals for each:
Abundance: Citrine, Pyrite, Clear Quartz
Acceptance: Aragonite, Rose Quartz, Turquoise
Anxiety: Labradorite, Lepidolite, Lithium Quartz
Business: Citrine, Pyrite, Smokey Quartz
Calming: Aquamarine, Calcite (Blue and Green), Rose Quartz
Centering: Black Kyanite, Smokey Quartz, Tiger’s Eye, Black Tourmaline
Change: Malachite, Jasper, Tiger’s Eye
Cleansing: Clear Quartz, Himalayan Pink Salt, Selenite, Amethyst
Clumsiness: Jasper, Aventurine
Creativity: Citrine, Orange Calcite, Pyrite, Tiger’s Eye
Decision Making: Citrine, Fluorite, Topaz
Determination: Red Jasper, Ruby
Detoxification: Calcite, Amethyst, Emerald, Turquoise
Dreams: Blue Kyanite, Lithium Phantom Quartz, Peacock Ore
You can create your own collection of stones based on their associations by combining several and programming them to work together toward a common goal (i.e. cleansing, detox, etc).
Sometimes when we are ready for a certain stone, it will grab our attention and ‘call’ out to us. This is a strong energy and should be respected. When you feel that you need a piece of labradorite (for example), worry less about what that stone can do for you or why and just go for it. It is the perfect stone for you at that point in your life. Or it may be that you are meant to deliver the stone to someone else (loved one, friend, etc).
Try not to focus on possibly choosing the ‘wrong’ stone. I don’t think there is such a thing. You never know where the path of Crystals and Stones may lead but if you follow your inner voice, chances are you won’t be disappointed.
