Setting Crystal Intentions

Setting intentions is the foundation needed to get the desired energy and protection from your crystals, so let’s learn how to set intentions. Everyone has a different reason for getting into crystals - be it decoration, personal growth, or just for fun. Regardless of your reason, crystals are known for clinging to whatever energy they’re surrounded by. That’s why it’s important to regularly place your desired intentions on your crystals. It will help make your space feel nicer and attract your manifestations faster (we’re covering more on manifestations in a later blog). 

However, before you start, it is important to note that having an open mind is crucial. Too much self doubt or skepticism towards the practice may keep you from achieving your intended results. Also, it helps to research your crystals beforehand and keep their benefits and characteristics in mind. That way you can set an intention that aligns with the crystal’s natural form. 

Enough chatter, let’s get to the good stuff!

To Set Intentions

Find yourself a comfortable space where you know you’re not going to be bothered or distracted. I personally enjoy listening to a soft instrumental (solfeggio healing frequencies does me wonders) to help me stay in the zone. The next step is to just close your eyes and open your third eye - follow your intuition. What is the crystal telling you? What are you telling yourself? What emotions does it make you feel? Those are all important questions to ask yourself during this process. Then, when you feel ready, tell your crystal what you want to bring into your life. It can be anything! But I suggest keeping it positive as whatever goes around comes around. Once you feel like opening your eyes, do just that. 

The rest is up to you. Place your crystal where you desire, watch your dreams come to fruition, and rest assured that your crystals are going to be there to help you along the way.
