At the beginning of my journey with Crystals, I thought that just a few super-sensitive people were able to sense crystals' energy. Therefore, everything we could do was buy their books and memorize each crystals' properties, having a very scarce understanding of what these actually meant.
I started to feel myself a little bit frustrated because all I could actually do was repeat what other people said about Crystals, and most importantly, I had many questions that no one could address as I expected.
I was doubtful about the effectiveness of working with crystals and stones for healing. So I started studying more and more from the most popular authors, but, to me, it was like something huge was missing, although I could not figure out what it was.
One day, I came across the research of Stéphane Cardinaux and Regina Martino, who, with a vast group of collaborators, in more than ten years of double-blinded tests, discovered that Crystals have a measurable electromagnetic field, and this field interacts with our own energetic field, repeating common patterns.
In other words, Crystals and stones, with their subtle energy, affect our energy in a way that everyone can sense because it's part of our biology.
Then, I started to investigate and experiment on my own and with a group of friends and therapists for years. Everything changed.
I had found that vital piece that was missing.
Crystals are not magic tools that only "the mystics" can understand. Instead, they are good for all of us because Crystals are natural beings of light, like we are.
That's why the best tool we have to sense crystals is our own body. Not our mind, our visions, or specific rituals done at a specific time, but our own body, always accessible.
Now you know that you can sense the energy of crystals and that you can use it to better understand your own energy and balance it.
But how to start?
Even if sensing stones is a skill you already have, it requires a little bit of practice before being able to manage it consciously and confidently.
The purpose is not learning (you're already capable). Instead, it's awake your own ability to bring the message to the consciousness.
This is how we become aware of our energy centers, raising our energetic intelligence with crystals. And then, you'll also identify the best crystal remedies for other people.
All you need to do is train yourself in physical experiences with your stones, remaining open to every subtle sensation you feel, expecting nothing—just observing.
In this article, you will find a selection of stones I recommend starting with. I selected these stones for your first steps in crystal healing because they provide a very simple frequency that stimulates only one energetic area. That way, you can focus your attention on one Chakra per stone. This approach will facilitate your journey in becoming more and more aware of how crystals work in the Chakra system.
Learning to Master Body's Energy Flow with Crystals:
To prepare yourself to the practice your need a few minutes of quiet, with no distractions.
Before practicing, you can go out for a walk, do some yoga or stretching, to relax your body and mind, supporting your own natural energy flow.
Learning to Master Body's Energy Flow with Crystals:
Here's the stones you need:
Labradorite, Black Tourmaline - Knees Chakra -
Jet Stone, Smoky Quartz - Root Chakra (1^ Chakra)
Sunstone, Brown Aragonite - Sacral Chakra (2^ Chakra)
Citrine, Honey Calcite - Solar Plexus (3^ Chakra)
Nephrite Jade - Heart Seed Chakra -
Pink Kunzite, Pink Opal - Heart Chakra ( 4^ Chakra)
Turquoise - Higher Heart Chakra -
Aquamarine, Blue Opal - Throat Chakra (5^Chakra)
White Jade, Fluorite - Third Eye (6^Chakra)
Amethyst, Lepidolite - Crown Chakra (7^ Chakra)
Cobaltocalcite - Soul Star Chakra.
If you cannot take all of them, I recommend you to get at least one stone per Chakra (in this list, you have two).
Ahead in this article, you find some basics about each stone and the sensations they provide within the body.
They are not all feelings you may sense. Instead, just some possibilities.
The important thing now is to focus on the energetic area where every stone works.
For example, if you're working with Aquamarine, you may sense tension, release, tingling, or any other feelings at the level of your throat because of the frequency of Aquamarine vibes to unlock the energy in that area.
By training yourself in sensing stones with this exercise, mind that:
• you are not in competition with anyone. This is something you do for yourself. No one judges you.
• if you do not feel anything, that's absolutely normal at the beginning. Many of the best therapists (and friends) I know felt nothing at the beginning of their journey, but they didn't give up, and at some point, something clicked.
• be honest with yourself, do not expect to perceive anything, just remain open and listen.
HOW TO DO
• Find a quiet place.
• Stay standing (identifying the areas that will be activated will be a little bit easier this way) with your feet well placed on the ground and your shoulders straight. Takes a few conscious breaths to your body to be in its center.
• When you're ready, pick up your stone and focus your attention and your presence to it.
Everyone has one's way of connecting to stones. If you're starting your journey with Crystals, you may have to discover your own unique way to do it if it does not come spontaneously the first time you try.
• Now, listen to what happens within the area where the stone vibes.
Give yourself permission to trust yourself. Everything you sense is real.
Notice every subtle movement, tension, or release.
Explaining these feelings is not actually easy, but do your best and take some notes before checking the ones I share here below.
If you feel nothing or feel any kind of sensation in an area that is not related to the stone, that's ok. That's why you're here.
Here below, you will find my very essential notes about each stone. It may help to verify and compare your own sensations with the basic actions. But again, if what you sense is not included in what you find here below, that's amazing. Here you find only the primary feelings, and plus everyone senses stones slightly differently.
Behind every sensation, the key is the energetic area, the Chakra. You're starting your journey with Crystals, right? So the most important step now is sensing the frequency of each stone working in the area related to it.
*NOTE: What you find here below are not the properties of stones but instead the feelings that their frequency produces.
• Black Tourmaline: from behind the feet, a flow of energy rise upwards, giving more stability and solidity to the legs, enhancing its frequency until the below area of the back. Direction, verticality.
• Labradorite: Opens a wide space from knees downwards. Openness, multi-direction.
ROOT CHAKRA - 1^ Chakra
• Jet Stone: the pelvis and legs (from the knee upwards) find relaxation, stability, and balance. Reliving of legs.
• Smoky Quartz: Tingling in the thighs in the front, warm feet, head straight. Forward and vertical direction.
SACRAL CHAKRA - 2^ Chakra
• Sunstone: light tingling on the lower pelvis in the front, joy, relaxation. Large radius opening forward, without pushing
• Brown Aragonite: support of the part between the lower back and the butt. Multi-directional opening with a sense of confidence, relaxation.
SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA - 3^ Chakra
• Honey Calcite: gentle and progressive opening forward at the navel level. Kind invitation to the unknown.
• Citrine: intense forward opening at the navel level, encouraged by a forward thrust.
HEART SEED CHAKRA
• Nephrite Jade: spiral movement at the level of the middle back, just above the kidneys. Multi-directional movement in a circle.
HEART CHAKRA - 4^ Chakra
• Pink Opal: Opening a sweet, wide, and progressive space behind the back at the level of the shoulder blades. Proposal to welcome the infinite beauty of the present.
• Pink Kunzite: straight back, the heart acquires new layers that strengthen it. Verticality, firmness in kindness.
HIGHER HEART CHAKRA
Turquoise: warmth in the thymus gland' area, between the heart and throat. Subtle tingling to the shoulders and arms.
THROAT CHAKRA - 5^ Chakra
• Blu Opal: slowly opens a large space in the back of the neck, relaxation of the ears and hearing.
• Aquamarine: opening forward with encouragement to action in the throat, firmness, and freshness.
THIRD EYE CHAKRA - 6^ Chakra
• White Jade: relaxation of the muscles surrounding the skull, especially in the back and behind the eyes.
• Fluorite: relaxation at the level of the temples.
CROWN CHAKRA - 7^ Chakra
• Amethyst: opening at the level of the cranial fontanel, relaxation of the muscles of the skull starting from the top.
• Lepidolite: relaxation of the skull's muscles, its internal structures, and of face, up to the shoulders.
SOUL STAR CHAKRA
Cobalto Calcite: straightening of the spine. Breathing wider, clearer vision. Opening a space above the head.
Mind that the key is practicing, like everything we learn in life.
You'll see that the more you practice, the more you'll trust your senses, and the more you trust your senses, the more you'll be able to bring these sensations to the conscious mind spontaneously and be aware of them.
• When I connect my attention to Black Tourmaline, the only thing I feel is a kind of headache! Why?
When an energetic area is deficient in our energetic system, we tend to engage the one that we typically use more frequently, and that commonly exceeds to interpret the message.
Because of our culture and lifestyle, the irradiation of the front of the Third Eye (at the level of eyebrows) exceeds in most of us in the modern western world.
That's why you sense Black Tourmaline on your head. Your root chakra bypasses the information to the third eye because it's not enough developed to decode the message.
If so, working on the Root Chakra for a while will help tremendously helpful. Then you can come back to Black Tourmaline, and you'll see that your perception will change drastically.
• After a few times that I work with my stones, I keep feeling nothing with any of them. Do you have any further suggestions?
Sure, first, do not doubt your senses. Mind that crystals spread subtle frequencies, so what you'll feel is subtle sensations, so remain open.
Second, with the crystal in your hand, do not try to visualize, imagine, or think. Just perceive the energetic space around your body. Feel how it's dense and rich.
This energy includes the energetic space of your crystal because it's on your hand. Drive your attention to the area where your energy overlaps the energetic field of your stone. Stay there and be open to the senses.
Third, practicing with other people in a group power up our perception drastically. It's tremendously helpful, especially at the beginning.

Thank you for spending your time here, hope it was helpful and inspiring,

@classysassyshopper Thanks for your beautiful question! I suggest asking for as much information as possible to the seller before buying. If possible ask for a video o more images at the natural light of the stone. Nothing can substitute physical contact with a crystal. However, I see from my experience that, surprisingly, connect to them through a screen could be possible in some way. You’ll enjoy the full connection when it will arrive.
Love love this 🙏🏻 And everything on the blog. Trying to build my collection during the pandemic has meant often purchasing crystals online. Am I the only one who has asked abt trying to get a sense of a stone through a screen? Sometimes I do feel as though this is possible…any tips? Many thanks ❤️
