I love my crystals & using them in my energy work for their spiritual & healing properties. Crystals are fascinating & can be an amazing way to connect with the Earth’s energy. Believe me, I know it can be daunting to try to figure out the individual spiritual meanings & energies of every single crystal out there, especially if you’re relatively new to the crystal healing game. While each crystal is unique in its properties & healing vibrations, there are some little tricks you can use to bypass the heavy research & one of those tricks is to choose crystals based on their color to support different intentions. Just like everything else in the Universe, the color of each crystal has its own unique vibration & meaning that will point you in the right direction, energy-wise.
While choosing a crystal’s energy based on color alone might not be quite as hyper-specific as doing research on the stone itself, it’s still an easy way to at least get a feel for what type of energy work the stone would likely be good for. It’s also helpful if you’re just beginning to learn about crystals, as it offers you some direction as far as which crystals are best used for what. Plus, my favorite way to choose a crystal for a specific use or ritual is to simply trust my own intuition by holding crystals in my h& & seeing which spiritually call to me. Often I’ll find that I’m naturally drawn to the crystal that best suits whatever issue I’m focusing on, without doing any prior research at all & having an awareness of common color meanings can be super helpful in that process!
The color symbolism of crystals also loosely correlates with the colors of our seven chakras, or energy centers on the body that are said to relate to different aspects of our physical, emotional, & spiritual well-being. Both our bodies & crystals have energetic vibrations, which makes us naturally receptive to the vibrations of gemstones as they can align our own vibrations with theirs. This is why healing crystals have a powerful vibratory effect when placed directly on your body. This energy surges from the crystal to you, which facilitates the free flow of energy throughout the body.
Healing crystals have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations; the Egyptians, Aztecs, & others incorporated them into jewelry, cosmetics, decorative statues, amulets, & much more! This a testament to their powerful ability to release mental, physical, & spiritual blockages.

When picking out your crystals, don’t overthink it. Instead, let your intuition make the right choice. Pick the crystal that calls to you or that you feel most drawn to, based on its color, shape or size. When thinking about your intention for each crystal, notice which one your eyes linger over.
When you use the high frequencies of crystals in your everyday life, it can have a profound effect on your well-being. Whether you want to shift negative thoughts, attract love, or live in abundance, crystals can serve as a reminder to stay focused on your intention while also cleansing & activating your energy. To amplify the effects of crystals even more, you can also pair them with other crystals for a powerful combination of healing vibrations. 😉
Stay grounded & keep your vibration high…
