Help! It’s My First Time Buying Crystals. Where Do I Start?
Buying crystals shouldn’t be difficult, but it could be a little confusing if you’re unsure where to start, especially if you’re buying for someone else. Don’t stress, though, deep breaths. I’m here to help you with this shopping adventure. All you have to do is ask yourself the following, and the perfect crystals will find their way to you.
What is your intention?
Crystals are fantastic for helping you find your footing, and if you’ve made your way to my website, you’ve likely been drawn to the divine in some way or another. Even if you just want to buy crystals to jazz up your home or office, the intention to have them is there, which means you’ll find something perfect for you. More clearly, though, think about why you’ve chosen to buy crystals. Maybe you’re looking for something to help with your anxiety. Or, perhaps you struggle to keep focused. Either way, understanding WHY you’ve stopped by my crystal shop will help you narrow down your search.
What will you be using the crystal for?
Similar to intention, what’s the crystal’s use? Maybe you’re interested in balancing your chakras or are looking for a variety of stones to guide your meditation. Ask yourself what you will be using the crystal for and why. (and by the way, if they’re just for show, that’s okay too!)
Are you buying for yourself or someone else?
Who is the crystal for? For example, if you’re looking to help a friend going through a breakup, you might buy amethyst or magnesite. But if you have a loved one who is starting a new job, they might benefit from a moonstone or amazonite. Considering the person (who could very well be yourself) and their circumstance will set you on your way to finding the perfect fit!
Trust yourself. Are any jumping out at you?
You might not know what you are looking for; maybe you have just been drawn to my crystals. This is great news because it means you are listening to your instincts. Of course, a part of buying crystals comes from intention, but sometimes they will just jump out at you, and these are the instincts you should trust the most. This is likely a message from the universe, pulling you toward a specific crystal. Listen to what your gut says - there is always a message in it for you.
Here are 10 Of The Most Common Crystals To Get You Started
If you’re just starting out or want to add more crystals to your collection, I’ve thrown together a list of some common stones every crystal owner should have.
Clear Quartz—Made from oxygen and silicone atoms, clear quartz is the Master Healer. It looks almost like shards of ice and is the staple crystal for anyone getting started. Clear quartz is fantastic for aiding concentration, providing clarity, and assisting with retention. Keep one on your desk or in your pocket while you work.
Rose Quartz — Love is in the air! Rose quartz is the universal love stone. A stunning pale pink, rose quartz increases self-esteem and strengthens positive, loving relationships with others.
Smoky Quartz — We all have our off days, but all is good when you have some smoky quartz on hand. This powerful crystal is perfect for grounding and offers protection from negativity and those situations that don’t serve us. So if you’re feeling a little flat, stale or out of body, keep smoky quartz on you, and it’ll help root you back down to earth.
Amethyst — This beautiful purple stone is great for emotional balance. Helping with anxiety, amethyst helps to block stressful energies and promotes a shift into a higher consciousness.
Citrine — Oh, what a joyous occasion! Citrine is the joy stone, promoting prosperity and motivation to help tackle those often put-off tasks. It’s also great for digestion and helps to endure those challenging situations that otherwise can feel overwhelming.
Tiger’s Eye — Resembling tiger stripes, this must-have crystal assists in the improvement of self-confidence. Like citrine, tiger’s eye helps with endurance, encouraging inner strength, harmony, and balance.
Hematite — Increase your concentration and energy levels with this iron oxide crystal. Hematite helps with restlessness, regulates blood supply, and encourages strength and bravery.
Jade — Tell me, do you feel lucky? You will after you purchase a jade stone. Known as the lucky stone, this lush green crystal symbolises serenity and purity. Jade promotes wisdom and keeps the wearer from harm.
Obsidian — This dark crystal forms when volcanic lava cools. Known for its protective properties, obsidian helps ward off negativity and untruths. Keep it on you during stressful situations to feel more grounded.
Lapis Lazuli — Known as the friendship stone or the wisdom stone, lapis lazuli is great for strengthening relationships and promoting compassion, honesty and peace. It also helps with communication, strengthening one’s ability for self-expression.
Five Thing Everyone Should Know About Crystals
Okay, so this wouldn’t be a buyer’s guide without some cool facts to help familiarise you with the world of crystals. Below are some things I really love about these stones. I hope you find them interesting too! Did you know:
Crystals are power sources. Crystals vibrate their own energy, which is why they’re particularly helpful for balancing your chakra (more on that in my reiki article if you’re keen to take a look!)
They can actually grow. It takes a looong time, but did you know that crystals can continue to grow even after being extracted from the earth? Generally speaking, they grow faster in cooler temperatures, and it’s unlikely you’ll notice the change as they are pretty subtle. But still, how awesome is that?
You can program them. When you set your intentions for your crystals, you are essentially uploading a set of tasks or duties for them to be responsible for. What’s great about this is you can also deprogram them through a cleansing process and start all over again. I’ve written a bit about cleansing your crystals here if you want to learn more.
Keeping them on your person does wonders. First, keeping your crystals on you (around your neck, in your pocket or in your bra, for example) helps them interact with your body and become acquainted with your energies. More than that, though, is they can act as protection, helping to shield negative and unwanted vibrations.
Shape matters! The shape of the crystal actually affects its energy. Don’t get me wrong, the way it emits energy doesn’t change, but its shape can affect the way YOU receive energy. That’s why here at Mind Soul Sync, I sell various crystals in different shapes and sizes so I can ensure my customers can wholly realise their intentions.
