One of the first questions you might ask when considering buying a crystal or stone for the first time is: How do I know which one is "right?" Which one should I get?
Here's the deal - you're making it too complicated.
The first way is really quite simple. Scan over the options available to you and notice the following things:
💫 Which one made you gasp or say "Ooooohhhh!"?
💫 Which one was your eye drawn to first?
💫 Which one do you keep coming back to, over and over again?
Then, once you've noticed the one your eye was drawn to, take a closer look at the meaning behind it. Even if it doesn't match up exactly with what your mind (ahem, ego) is saying you need, my feeling is that yeah, it's probably exactly what you should get. Our intuition comes through in these whispers - learn to trust it.
The second way is to check out the Crystals for Beginners Collection or the filters I have set up on my website and do some research. There you can choose from keywords to find stones that align with them.
Ultimately, you can't pick the wrong one, so please don't let this stress you out for one single second.
Each and every gift left to us by Mother Nature will support you. Period. And there's nothing wrong with picking one simply because you think she's the prettiest. Trust that you're drawn to the right stone at the right time and enjoy starting your collection!
