How to choose your gemstones for the day

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.

If you know you will be having a lot of communication exchange (responding to emails, closing sales, doing a presentation, ect..) then blue crystals would be the right choice. You could also mix it with clear or white healing stones for clarity and discernment.

If you know you will be going to a place that drains you energetically and/or physically, then I would choose black gemstones.

Randomly picking stones

Another fun practice is to place your gemstones in a pouch and randomly pick one or a few with the intention of drawing to you what you will need the most. Then notice how the day went and if you acted or reacted slightly differently than you would normally.
