Crystals aren’t magic. They are powerful — but as conduits. They don’t have superpowers that take over for us, commandeering the outcomes of our lives. They work with us, not for us, as high-vibrational entities that help to ground and access source energy that we all contain passage to, intermingled with and buried deeply beneath our multitudes.
It can be difficult to hold an inanimate object and feel life, especially if we’ve been feeling low lately. Low energy, low emotions, low light … These are all part of the human experience, and it doesn’t make us any less of an energetic being. But it does mean there is room for growth.
Perhaps the idea of using crystals feels silly to some. And yet, opening up to the possibilities that crystalline entities can offer is synonymous to opening up to our own possibilities. Crystals are beautiful, unique, vibrational, earthy gifts. Holding them and caring for them is a compelling way to feel a sense of grounding. Similar to walking on grass barefoot, connecting with crystals brings us closer to nature — and our connection to nature is what makes us light, magnetic, manifesting beings of light.
Because there are so many different types of naturally forming crystals from different minerals and elements, they all carry different vibrational patterns. Looking deep within ourselves to understand what it is we need not only begins the process of reconnecting with our inner power and seeking that alignment, but also directs us to choosing which crystal may feel the most vibrant in a time of need— the best crystals for each of us, individually.
Autumn is a time of renewal. It’s about creating a nest for ourselves to feel peace, comfort, and release, so that we can rest and repair during the cold winter months and emerge unburdened come the spring. Here are some of the best crystals for inviting in an energy of abundance and release.
Crystals and stones are so personal, and sometimes a stone just feels right to you in a particular moment. That can be because of its color, its pattern, its shape, or the physical weight of it in your hand … or something inexplicable. You’ll know it when you feel it. There is no real list of “the best crystals,” because we all have our own unique vibration, just like they do. The best crystals for you are the ones that catch your eye, and just feel right. These are a wonderful place to start.
