Signs a crystal wants to work with you

Looking for a little supernatural help? The right crystal can work wonders and give you insights into the questions you have right now about your life.

Anyone who has spent time exploring crystals and working with them has likely learned this valuable lesson: You don’t choose crystals; crystals choose you. Crystals are known for their spiritual and healing energy, and when people carry certain crystals around, they can benefit from the crystals’ energy frequencies.

But there is something about crystals that is mysterious and that we can’t really explain. The way they work cannot be comprehended with the logical mind, and there is a supernatural power that makes crystals one of the greatest metaphysical gifts that we have on the planet. So make the most of that by allowing the crystal to lead. 

All crystals are different, and the crystal that works best for you today might not be the crystal that has the greatest benefit in your life at a later time. It really depends upon what you’re going through in life. If you’re going through a tough time at work, you might want a crystal that brings you strength. If you feel afraid or vulnerable, you might want a crystal that offers protection. Other crystals can enhance your clarity around a situation, such as a complicated love life. Simply carrying a particular crystal around with you can give you additional power to work with in your day to day life. Crystals are, indeed, a form of magic.

If you’ve never worked with crystals before, it can be a good idea to visit a metaphysical shop where you can have access to a wide variety of them. That way, you can see which crystals call out to you. Pay attention if a crystal catches your eye. Or if you can pick the crystals up, see which one feels right. You might notice a feeling of warmth, or perhaps you feel a chill. Use your intuition to determine if the feeling you get is a good one.

If you feel nothing when looking at or holding a particular crystal, that is not the one for you. Also, if you feel bad or anxious or any type of negative feeling when looking at or holding onto a particular crystal, you might want to avoid working with that one, at least for now. Also pay attention if you pick up a crystal and then you accidentally drop it. That could be the Universe nudging you to keep exploring until you find the crystal that is the perfect fit for you.

Sometimes you might not even be aware that you would benefit from working with certain crystal energies. There could be an issue that you’re dealing with subconsciously, or one that you’re going to be dealing with in a couple of weeks. The crystal that can help you the most may make its way to you before you even realize that you need it.

If you’re new to working with crystals, you might want to work with one crystal at a time. Give yourself a chance to get used to the crystal and to get its unique effect.Then you can more clearly see the differences between that crystal and others that you ultimately work with. There are tons of books on crystals and the types of energies they have, but the best way to learn about them is to do so hands-on. Trust your intuition to lead you to the crystal that feels best to your energy at this time. You might even want to wear a piece of jewelry that features a crystal that feels good to your energy. may receive compensation if users buy products or services mentioned or advertised on this site or click on some of the links on this site.
