It's no secret that I love crystals, minerals and rocks, wherever I go or even when searching the World Wide Web it's guaranteed there will be something crystal related. I had to head out of town for a couple of days and would be near a local that fossicks a lot of the stones he sells, I knew I would definitely be dropping in for a look and of course came away with a little bindle bundle of treasure.
Being someone that also sells crystals and facilitates crystal healing I am often asked 'how do I know what crystal is right for me?' 'Do we choose the crystal or does the crystal choose us?' Or 'This particular emotional or physical problem is ailing me what crystal would work best for me?'
All very valid questions and when I think back over the time I've been collecting, I have chosen crystals from all different states of mind, sometimes I've looked up the best crystals that relate to particular issues or I've just read about a crystal and decided I really need a piece of that, having some reference books and access to Google will help you immensely and is a great way to start.
My favourite way of ending up with another crystal is when I feel they speak to me, draw me in to their space, it excites me, makes me feel like the proverbial kid in a candy store.
It really is all about trusting yourself and trusting the energy, how can you possibly get it wrong, there's always more to the crystal than what a books says, I find I don't even question it anymore I just carry, play or sleep with whatever crystal I feel a connection to and am so grateful for any healing or awareness it's brings my way.
So the next time you come across a crystal shop or market stall pop in, walk around and go for the one that you feel most drawn to for whatever reason, give yourself permission to be open to the energy and enjoy your new friend. Oh and like I keep telling myself you can never have to many crystals either!
Feel free to share what crystal you have in your space at this moment and what it means to you.
Much love and Crystal Blessings!
