Against all logic, and for whatever reason, this stone has to be yours. The crystal that so effortlessly stands out from the others seems to hold a captivating lure. And before you know it, it has been purchased, placed in bubble wrap, and carried to your home to be displayed somewhere meaningful. Feeling a powerful pull toward a healing crystal isn’t the least bit uncommon. Your attraction to this stone might mean that it holds a significant benefit meant for you. How can this be? Throughout the centuries, and in many cultures, healing crystals have been known to offer health-giving vibrations that can affect us in many positive ways. Numerous healers throughout the ages, including modern times, use healing crystals as therapeutic modalities to create a more balanced life for those seeking same. But before you set off into that urban landscape of shops to find yourself a gorgeous healing crystal, we'll equip you with the basics to save you some time. For starters, there is a saying in the healing crystal world, “Let the stone choose you.” What does, “Let the stone choose you,” mean? Donna Marie Hohman is a Crystal Healer of thirty years and runs a thriving personal practice, and she explains that "An easy way to let your crystal choose you is to hold the stone in your hand for a few minutes, and if it warms, it’s yours (if it doesn't, it’s not).” Unlike a dating app where it’s almost too easy to swipe left or right based on a quick aesthetic judgment call, choosing your ideal stone has little to do with appearance. “Do not let the beauty (or lack of beauty) determine whether the stone is for you; instead, let the feeling it gives you be the factor that chooses it,” says Hohman. Another way of figuring out if a healing crystal is right for you is by paying attention to your body language. After you hold a crystal, put it down. “If you sway toward the stone, your body wants that stone, but if you sway away from it, it is not good for you, and your body does not want that stone,” notes Hohman. The pointers above offer an excellent jumping off point when it comes to choosing healing crystals based on gut instinct. But if you are like many others, and you're in the market for a more tailored outcome from your healing stones, such as attracting moreabundance into your life, you may desire a more in-depth approach.

Balancing our life force spirit with feeling grounded by earth's elements can bring a more measured and fulfilling approach to life.
