I came across a question of interest on facebook. Someone posted upset that she didn’t feel connected with any of her crystals, and she asked what she could do to feel connected with them. The popular solutions are to meditate with them more or keep them on your person. Such advice does have a possibility of solving the dilemma. You could also sleep with the crystals under your pillow in your pillow case if they are little tumbles. However, I think sometimes the issue might really be the way in which one expects to experience a connection with crystals. Reading forums and watching YouTube videos could lead one to have high expectations. For example, Moldavite (technically a tektite and not a crystal) is typically described as a super high vibrational crystal that has obvious WOW ways of making its energy known. Some people say they notice a sudden rush of chaos in their life after getting Moldavite. Some says it leaves them with their head in the clouds, having difficultly focusing on their surroundings. Some say they feel heat or tingles from it. However, I read today about a person who was disappointed because he or she felt nothing from the renowndly powerful crystal.
My advice is to avoid strongly basing your expectations on the experiences of others. Not everyone has the same energy. Not every crystal of a particular type feels the same in an intuitive manner. I can dive into a bin of tumbled amethyst and only find one that I feel is for me. It might not be the “prettiest” or biggest crystal in the bin either. It just feels like it is supposed to be with me, similar to the feeling when a gal sees a blouse that was “made for her.” That is how the connection works for me personally. Thus simply seeing that a crystal type I want is affordable is not enough reason for me to buy it. I have to feel like that particular specimen is one that is going to be on my mind until I get it. That is something I suggest keeping in mind when buying crystals, however I restate that people may connect with crystals differently. Another way I subtly connect with crystals is through intuition telling me what crystal I should pick up/wear on any given day. One day I had a migraine kicking in and the thought popped into my head to grab my lepidolite which is generally one that just sits out looking pretty. It seemed to help me relax as my medicine kicked in. Intuition may also nudge me which crystal jewelry piece to wear each day (if any jewelry). It’s okay if you don’t feel tingles in your hand when you pick up a stone or suddenly have your third eye blasted open. There is nothing wrong with feeling a connection to crystals in a subtle way.
Something else to keep in mind is that we might be neutral with some crystals. We might even feel repulsed by some crystals. You probably don’t expect yourself to get along with every attractive person you see. Sometimes there is a spark and sometimes there isn’t. I don’t think you can force a connection where there is not one. The same applies to crystals (for those who believe that crystals have energetic properties). What do you do with your crystals that you don’t connect with? There are a few options. You can keep them simply as a part of a rock collection and maybe one day you will feel better matched with some of them. You can give them away to people who they seem to be suited for, or you can sell them and put that money into a fund for crystals that you do connect with.
I hope somebody finds this helpful. Blessed be, y’all.
