Using tumbled stones for healing and to hold specific intentions is one of the most versatile and oldest ways to use crystals. Even celebrities are doing it! Katy Perry admitted in the July issue of Cosmo that she carries around Rose Quartz healing stones to attract men and love.
“I don’t stay single for long. I carry a lot of rose quartz, which attracts the male. Maybe I need to calm it down with the amethyst.”
Energy Muse has a wonderful selection of all natural, tumbled stones that you can use to create your own intention bag, tailored to your specific needs and goals.
The truth is, all crystals and their meanings are unique. Each of our tumbled stones has its’ own unique energetic and metaphysical properties. You will find that when you are attracted to certain healing stones, they will often contain the physical and emotional support that your body, mind and spirit are looking for. As your life changes, the crystals that you are attracted to will as well—because your body, your needs and your intentions are constantly shifting.
The most beneficial way to choose the best healing crystals and their meanings for you is to choose the ones that you are the most attracted to. Did a particular tumbled stone jump out at you? If so, that is definitely a crystal for you! Some people like to choose their crystals based solely upon that, and others choose to read more about the healing properties of stones. When reading about the crystals and their meanings, concentrate on the purpose for which you intend to use your crystal.
One specific tumbled stone we do recommend you always put into your intention bag is a Clear Quartz stone. Clear Quartz will work to constantly reenergize and amplify the energy of all your tumbled stones in your bag. It has the ability to raise the energy level of any other healing stone that touches it—thus why we recommend cleansing and recharging your Energy Muse jewelry with it! Clear Quartz stones are also very beneficial for holding your intention because of their ability to be programmed to hold a specific thought.
But what if you are choosing crystals for someone else? Almost once a day, we talk to someone who is trying to find a crystal or healing jewelry piece for a friend that is going through a tough time. Choosing the crystals for another person can actually be quite easy. There are generally two ways to do it. The first way is to look at all the crystals while visualizing the person for whom you are choosing the crystal. Choose the one that responds to you and stands out; you will know! The second way is to close your eyes and visualize the person. Open your eyes and choose the first of the healing stones to catch your eye.
Once you have chosen your tumbled stones for your intention bag, and you have received them, you need to set your intention for your crystals! If all you intend to have a collective intention for all your stones, then you can set your intention with all of them at once. If you chose your tumbled stones specifically for several different intentions, we would recommend that you set your intentions separately with each stone, so that it works to bring in what you intend it to.
Sit quietly and hold your tumbled stone, or stones, in both of your hands. Close your eyes and breathe in the highest white light and feel the energy of your crystals. Envision the energy of your crystals surrounding you in a healing bubble of white light. Visualize, or say aloud, your intention for your crystals. Make sure to be very specific about what you want; the stones are listening. You can meditate with them for a little while, if you would like. Once your intention is set, you can choose where you want to place them! Some people like to carry them around with them in their pocket or purse; others like to place them under their pillow, next to their bed or on their altar. Wherever you choose to place your tumbled stones, make sure it is somewhere central where you will see them everyday.
Don’t forget about cleansing your crystals! Check out our blog post, Cleansing Crystals for more information on doing so. If you are unsure about which crystals to choose and would rather shop from our pre-made combinations, feel free to shop our Crystal Healing Bags.
