Most individuals who use crystals or natural gems have a particular purpose in mind for using crystals. And though some groups of natural gems or stones are more likely, in general, to achieve the wanted results, not every specimen from the same group has identical properties, whether physical or metaphysical. Also, everyone does not have the same reaction when exposed to a crystal or stone.
How to Find the Right Healing Stone
The fundamental factor for selecting a particular crystal is finding a vibrational match to your purpose. Everything vibrates at a specific frequency. This vibrational frequency is connected to the motion of the atoms of our material world and it can change over time. Even throughout the course of a single day, your own frequency can change. When your emotional state is feeling happy, successful and fulfilled, your frequency is very high. However, when you have to do your taxes, are worrying about work, or when you get into a fight, your vibrational frequency is much lower.
Natural Gems Selection Process
Following is a basic process to help you identify which crystal or stone will be the best match for your particular goal.
1) Be able to clearly describe specifically what your purpose is.
2) Search for a few types of natural gems that appear to support your goal (in books, on the internet, from a friend, etc.).
3) Choose a specific crystal that offers the best vibrational match to your specific frequency.
That last step is most readily accomplished simply by holding the crystal or gemstone in your hand or visualize holding it (if you are purchasing it online, for example) and clearly state your specific purpose: “I want to stop being self-destructive.” Always state the specific goal in an affirmative way (do not say: “I want to stop feeling sad”). Affirmative statements promote the flow of energy, while negative statements cause resistance to energy. Close your eyes while you clear state your specific goal to allow you focus inward.
If you are better in touch with your emotions, try to find a positive feeling (light, tingly, happy, smiling, laughing). If you are someone who is more in touch with your physical body, you can utilize muscle testing: balance you body upright and allow your body to “hover” and let it fall towards the direction it desires. If you start to fall forward, it generally means that you have found a good match. However, if you start to fall backwards, you haven’t found a good match. There are a variety of methods which use muscle testing for this purpose.
