Your Personal Stone
Your personal stone is important, it helps you when you worry and you need some support. One can choose a personal stone based on birth stones or zodiac sign, best is to choose your personal stone based on how deeply you are connected to it. All healing stones have vibrations but these vibrations work differently for different people, your personal stone must fit your needs.
The key to choosing a personal stone is picking what you intuitively feel strongly connected to.
Most choose things from the place of gut feeling. Then we might apply our
logic why we should choose this. If you visit a website, or a store and there are many beautiful stones luring you, that can cause confusion and indecision. Best is to first research what you in fact need. If it is for healing and support, you must choose something that gives you that support, not a familiar name, or a low price. So there are several ways to do this:
- establish what function you need your personal stone for
- search for personal stone with that function in mind
- pick what makes the most sense to you
If you want to explore a more detailed analysis, we have to also discuss your personal situation. Of course it is up to you how detailed you want to go just now. When you commit yourself to your personal healing journey the result is coming faster! Lets move on… So how do you go about discovering your personal crystal?
Choosing a personal stone can be done using three main methods:
- By your eyes
- By your hand
- By your mind
First method: Simply stand in front of a wide selection of crystals, close your eyes then open your eyes – the first crystal you see is the right one for you! I found that it is also the easiest method, no thinking required and no doubt.
Second method: Close your eyes in front of a selection of crystals and begin to feel the stones with your hand until you find the one which feels right, that is the right crystal for you. For those of you who are kinestetic (people who feel things easier rather than seeing things) you want to be using this method for choosing a personal stone.
Third method: Identify a problem you want the crystal to help you with, and then research all stones that are said to help for that situation or condition. You will have a longer or shorter list to choose from. Let’s say you find 5 stones that could work. Write the names of the stones on individual slips of paper. Fold them individually and put in a bag or bowl. Mix and with closed eyes ask to pick the right stone for you, then pick one. That is the name of right stone. Now go acquire it. Never doubt your choice. These methods of selecting stones, which I have adapted here, was first mentioned by Michael Gienger. Thank you Michael, you have been a great inspiration for me!
