Working with gemstones is a powerful way to manifest your desires and call healing into every facet of your life. Crystals emit energetic vibrations that impact how you feel, sense, and interact with your environment, and they help strengthen any intention whenever you work with them. We can think things into existence, and crystals act as allies to help us manifest our desires – which is why intention is crucial when choosing your crystals, as they each harness unique properties and frequencies. I wrote this blog, 5 Best Crystals for Beginners, to guide those embarking on their crystal healing journey.
Have you ever been visually captivated by a particular gemstone? That’s your subconscious realizing an unexpressed need. All crystals and minerals have a specific vibration, energy, and frequency, and if your energy aligns or calls for theirs, you’ll feel a pull. If it doesn’t come to you right away, give yourself time. Energy work is a process and a skill you develop and hone over time. As you learn to raise your vibration, you’ll be more in touch with the intentions of your heart and can readily use your intuition as a guide.
5 Best Crystals for Beginners
Rose quartz is the mother of all love stones and one of my favorites for heart healing and manifesting all kinds of love. It’s considered the universal stone of peace and love – love for self, others, and all of creation. Rose quartz helps to open your Heart Chakra, reawaken trust, and dissolve negative energies. It represents bonds that transcend time and space and supports your intentions to give and receive true love and deep affection.
Selenite is a Crown Chakra stone of peace, pure white light, moon magic, and Divine Feminine power. This gypsum gem is a sweet, radiant, and potent crystal that purifies spaces and raises the vibration. The Greeks named selenite after the moon goddess Selene, who can awaken intuition and bring psychic visions and vivid dreams. It’s potent under the full moon and holds a vibration of ceremony and wisdom. Selenite also helps you fall and stay asleep and brings peaceful sleep.
Selenite is fragile – be careful not to get it wet – but it is quite strong, which makes it similar to us as spiritual beings, tender and yet strong in our own ways.
Black tourmaline is the most protective stone you can work with. It’s a Root Chakra gem of divine and psychic protection that creates an energetic shield around you, deflecting negativity and sealing holes in your auric space. Even amid chaotic situations, this gem acts like a vacuum cleaner, clearing negativity. It brings awareness and love and can also prevent the loss and theft of material items. Black tourmaline is grounding, counteracts energy depletion, wards off nightmares, connects you with divine wisdom, and generally keeps you feeling safe and well.
Green aventurine is the stone of growth – whatever it touches, flourishes. It boosts fertility, and if you’re looking to manifest more abundance in love, money, work, or creative projects, this is your crystal ally! Green aventurine activates the Heart Chakra, opening your heart to receive your blessings, and is especially helpful to students or new business ventures. Working with this gem inspires new ideas, forward motion and brings good fortune and good luck of all kinds.
Clear quartz is the most pervasive crystal in the gem world and has three significant properties: Amplification, programmability, and magnification. It can help boost the energies of other stones or seal intentions and is ideal for crystal grids. Clear quartz activates the Soul Star Chakra, your connection to the stars, and other dimensions. It possesses a high, joyful vibration that can be used to magnify frequencies of abundance, light, and love – or any intention you wish to amplify.
Working with crystals is an intuitive practice that requires trust in yourself. The more you pay attention to your thoughts and instincts, the stronger your bond with your crystals will be, and the more confident you’ll be in receiving their guidance. Every crystal has a unique mineral structure that aligns with sacred geometry, and that structure affects how that crystal works with your specific energy. They’re your allies! Let them know precisely what you need support with, and they’ll show up for you every step of the way.
