Amityville Apothecary has many beautiful crystals and stones from which to choose. Oftentimes a customer becomes confused, unsure what to select. So, how do you pick?
Crystal experts often say that the crystal chooses you instead of the other way around. Walk around the shop and see what crystals stand out to you. Whether it’s the dazzling colors or otherworldly shapes and patterns that draw you in, each crystal has a unique vibrational energy that works to clear blockages and ward off negative energy. Chances are if you’re attracted to it, there’s a reason behind it.
Finding the right stone is like any practice of wellness. It requires patience while you quiet the mind and realign the mind/body balance. Hold the stone in your hand and quietly think of your intention. Notice if you feel sensations such as hot or cold, pulsations, or calmness and tranquility. These are all signs that this particular rock is perfect for your healing needs.
One of the most important, and often overlooked, components to working with healing crystals if setting your intention. In our own words, you have to give your crystal a job and a purpose! Crystals want to work for you, but you have to ask it. In the moments when you’re vibrating at a lower frequency, your intentions can fly out the window. When you reconnect with your crystal, it will help you remember your goals and limitless potential.
So- what to do? Center your body and mind. Take deep, cleansing breaths. Hold your crystal in your palm and just feel into it. Place your crystal over your heart while bringing your intention to mind. Breathe into your heartspace while concentrating on your intention. Feel the emotion connected to what it feels like when your intention comes to be; how will you feel when you find the new job, buy a home, etc.
Once you lock into the feeling, take another deep breath. Then place the crystal over your third eye, and visualize that intention flowing into the stone. Take another deep breath and allow the crystal to remain at your third eye until you feel comfortable removing it.
Bring the crystal back to your heart, with gratitude at the work it will support on your behalf.
