If you are starting to grow a little collection of gemstones that you like to carry on you, you may sometimes wonder which one(s) to pick when getting dressed and ready.
How to use your intuition to select your healing crystals
There is a little trick I like teaching people to do. It’s to pick one they seem drawn to and place it close to their heart and ask: Are you the most beneficial gemstone for the day ahead?
Then notice the sensation in your body. You may get tingles, a sense of expansion or relaxation, or your body may start to sway forward for a yes.
If the answer is no, you may feel a tightness in your chest or gut and your body may start to sway backward.
Ask if you need more than one gemstone and again pay attention to your body.
Using color properties to choose healing stones for the day
You can also follow general color properties for what you feel you need.
