Crystals for Intuition & Trusting Your Gut Instincts
We all have intuition. It’s just a matter of whether we choose to be in touch with our intuition or not. Do you know how to hear it? Do you trust when you hear it? Have you lost touch with it? Or are you too scared your intuition will tell you something you don’t want to hear. Incorporating crystals for intuition into your daily routine can help you become more in tune with your intuition.
Intuition plays a vital part in our everyday lives. Many people think of it as a moment where you instinctively know if something is right or isn’t right, or an inner voice that just knows. But it is so much more than that. Our intuition bridges the gap between our instincts and our reasoning, between the unconscious and conscious mind. It’s not just about trusting your gut. It’s about listening to the signs and symbols we don’t often pay attention to; the universe’s ways of guiding us. It’s time to tap into your intuition and become more aware of how the universe communicates with you through it.
5 Crystals for Intuition and Trusting Your Gut
Using healing stones and crystals can enhance and deepen your intuition sensing. When you are choosing the crystals for intuition that will work best with you, go with the one that you are the most attracted to. Don’t question why you are the most drawn to it or overanalyze the meaning of the crystal. Trust your intuition through this process and let this be your first intuitive decision.
- Amethyst super charges your intuition, opening and activating your third eye and crown chakra. Placing a piece of amethyst over your third eye during a meditation for intuition will help you become more in tune with your senses and your spiritual self. An amethyst cacoxenite or super seven crystal, a rare combination of 7 different minerals, increases your spiritual awareness and fosters a profound connection amongst all aspects of the universe. Its energy helps you to recognize intuitive and universal messages a little clearer.
- Although its more blue in color, Sodalite resonates strongly with your intuition. Meditating with a sodalite point over your third eye (pointing up towards the crown of your head) stimulates the third eye–where your intuition resides–and directs the energy upwards. This crystal brings wisdom from your intuition and gives you a calming reassurance that you’re exactly where you need to be.
- Charoite acclimates you with a higher vibration of living so that you are constantly vibrating at the highest frequency possible. Connected with the purple ray, it opens the third eye and crown chakra, encouraging you to trust your gut and know that you are on the right path. Working with the energy of a charoite pyramid helps you to overcome any resistance you feel towards your path or what your intuition is telling you. It helps you to block out the opinions of others and focus solely on your own feelings.
- The rainbow hues of Labradorite help you unfold your true life-purpose to uncover your destiny. Its energy illuminates your intuition and propels you forwards on your path to self-discovery.
- Dumortierite opens your third eye chakra to enhance your mental, emotional and spiritual intelligence. It is said to heighten your psychic abilities and intuition, as well as connect you with your angels and spirit guides. When you are deeply connected with the divine, answers seem to come about easier.
How to Use Your Crystals for Intuition
One of the easiest ways to connect with your crystals for intuition is through meditation. Meditating with crystals raises your consciousness and awareness, deepening your intuition and bringing insight. When you are in the relaxed and clear state of meditation, your intuitive sensing flows freely through your mind and you are able to clearly receive the message. Placing the crystal directly over your third eye chakra opens and balances this chakra center. This allows you to feel more confident in making decisions and changes in your life, all while trusting your gut.
Know that trusting and developing your intuition takes time and you will need to work at it on a daily basis. Try this simple daily ritual with your crystals for intuition to better understand how your intuition talks to you through the universe.
- Choose one of the crystals above to work with for 10 days.
- At the same time everyday (we recommend the morning!), hold your crystal and ask a question regarding something you want to know more about. It can be something as simple as should I go to the beach on Saturday to something more complex like should I make a career change?
- Give yourself a time period to see a sign that gives you an answer to your question. For example: If I see a purple balloon in the next 24 hours, I should make a career change. This sign may show up in any way. It could be printed on a piece of paper. It could be in a video. It could be in the sky.
- Look for these signs throughout the next 24 hours and notice how often they will show up.
- Continue this for 10 days.
- After the 10 days, you will begin to notice the ways the universe talks to you through your intuition.
