Choosing a Crystal
How do you choose a crystal that's right for you? How do you know which on will help you?
Listen to your inner self, and select the crystal that attracts you to it.
The best way is to handle and hold it, being sensitive to how it feels.
Appearance is secondary. Pick a stone by attract, by being drawn to touch
it, then hold it in the left hand loosely. Let it rest against the palm
chakra and notice the impressions, colors, sounds, and mood feelings that
accompany the stone. No two crystals are the same; they are like snowflakes.
Each will resonate differently. Look for one that will resonate with your
being, regardless of size, shape, color, clarity, or jeweler's quality.
It's the subtle polarity impression which is important. The crystal should
feel alive in the hand, vibrate, or radiate it should feel good. A tiny
quartz no larger than a thumbnail can be powerful and effective. Look for
pleasing colors, unchipped points, and symmetrical shapes, but these appearances
are secondary to the energy vibrations. Crystals are like cats in that
they select their owner. If you are supposed to have a particular crystal,
it will come to you.
If you want to check out the energy of a crystal, here's an interesting
technique. Wait until you feel quiet and centered in your heart, then hold
the crystal in your left hand. Curl your tongue so that its tip touches
the middle back of your mouth. This area joins the energy of your two major
acupuncture meridians and increases your sensitivity. You may feel the
crystal activate an organ, a chakra, a part of the body. You may feel a
shift in consciousness, or simply feel warmth or tingling in your hand.
Give it a few minutes to speak to you in its own way.
