Everything has a life force of some sort or another and this is especially true of crystals or gemstones. Many people find them full of useful energy. Some people even think they have a form of consciousness. “I do feel that they have been infused with energies throughout their life, be it from their development into being (time, minerals, energy, water) or by those who imprinted their consciousness into the crystals themselves.” (Healing Crystals)
So the energy infused in the crystals is what allow them to do the amazing work they do.

How to Pick the Perfect Crystals for You
Once one has decided what crystals they need, now it is time to pick the right ones. Certain crystals will work better for some people, but not so well for others.
Here are 3 steps one should follow to find the right crystals for them!
1. Set an Intention
Before starting the process to find a crystal or gemstone, set an intention. This means one should speak aloud or inside about what crystal or gemstone they are hoping to find. For example, “Thank you amethyst for becoming my next gemstone. Please reveal yourself to me.”
2. Follow the Senses
We have the physical senses and the intuitive senses. Physical senses include sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste. The intuitive senses include clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairaudience (clear hearing), clairsentience (clear feeling), clairalience (clear smelling), clairgustance (clear tasting), and claircognizance (clear knowing). (Oprah) Use all of these to pick the perfect stone.
3. Wait for a Feeling
Sometimes a crystal or gemstone will just stand out to a person. If a stone keeps on grabbing one’s attention, it might be the right one. Also, some stones will vibrate or give off a form of energy when held by the right person. Feel for this.
