The Crystals Should Feel Right
When choosing the right crystal for you, the rule of thumb, as simple as it is, should be to get the crystals that feel right for you. What does this mean? A crystal can be beautiful to you or it can be unique. If you are simply drawn to the color or the way it looks, it is probably calling to you. If you hold the crystal and you begin to feel something, be it energy or heat, it is calling to you somehow. You may have an immediate connection with the crystal and if this is the case, you should take that crystal home with you. Crystals have a strong power to them. They have the power to heal and change.
When buying a crystal, it is important to keep many things in mind. When you pick up the crystal, does it give off heat? Does it stick to your hand? Do you feel a vibration or a small pulse? Do you feel positive energy from it? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, that is the crystal for you to take home. This crystal has found you and you can begin to use it for its healing powers.
