Crystals are all the rage and although many are drawn to them for different reasons I frequently get asked, “I am a beginner, what should I get first?”. Well, I am here to guide you on my top 6 Crystals for Beginners but first here is a little bit of Crystal info;

Working with gemstones is such a super powerful way to bring in energy that may be lacking in your world. Crystals emit energy and vibrations that are able to have a massive impact on our senses and the way we interact in our environments. Crystals are gifts from mother earth and act as allies to help us in all areas of our lives and can also be used to manifest all you desire.

All Crystals have different metaphysical properties and the choice can be quite overwhelming especially when you are just starting to build your rock collections.

How do I choose?

Sometimes we are absolutely captivated by a particular Crystal or Gemstone and we don’t know why. Has this happened to you? Did you know that it may actually be your subconscious realizing an unexpressed need?

Crystals will draw you to them and often we do not understand why at the time. It is due to their individual frequency, properties and vibration calling your energy to align with theirs, you will feel a pull. This pull means that the crystal is needed to be worked with, that it needs to be near you and begin its duty for you, they love being of service. So many students of mine have chosen crystals and didn’t realise at the time why they needed it until a circumstance unfolds in their lives. Crystals chosen even months beforehand was the correct crystal they needed to get them through that time. Crystals do choose their owners and it is crucial to take note and listen. Your intuition will never lead you wrong.
