I'll be giving y'all a little guide to some basic crystals you need in your life! First off, I want to say that everything in this universe is energy. Your words, thoughts, and even intentions are energy. So, if you put good intentions into your crystals, you’ll get positive energy back.


1. Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is known to be the quintessential stone of love. A beautiful pink stone, you can find it either smooth and polished or as a rough piece. The stone helps you discover love for all: community, world, divine, and yourself. You can even ask the crystal to heal your heart from past trauma or hurt. It can soothe emotions and release worry or fear. Try placing the stone over your heart and meditating with it. Feel the energy move through your body and create this calming effect.

2. Selenite

Selenite is a gorgeous white crystal that comes in many shapes and forms. You can get it as a smooth palm stone or in a more natural state. As a white stone, it is best to leave your selenite under the moonlight to charge and help you with spiritual activation. The stone is also good for cleansing the aura and dispelling negative energy. You can use this crystal to activate other crystals during meditation or manifestation as well.


3. Red Goldstone

This unique crystal has copper dust suspended in glass that creates its sparkly look. The stone almost looks unreal at times just by how perfect it can look. This stone is used to boost confidence and ambition! The perfect stone for people in need of more drive, this piece will energize you. It is also known to turn negative anxious thoughts and energy into positive ones.


4. Amethyst

Amethyst is a popular purple crystal that you may recognize. It is known to help you attain deeper sleep and boost your immunity. This stone gives out calming vibes and just has such a chill presence. It will awaken your intuition and help with decision-making by calming your mind. If you're the type of person who cannot sleep because your mind is racing, run to this crystal.


5. Green Opal

This steady-looking stone is the rejuvenating stone. It’ll help you quickly recover from illness and mental angst. This stone is also known to unburden the heart, heal past relationship trauma, and help prepare you to experience new love. It’s the perfect stone to recover physically and mentally from unhealthy situations.

Of course, this is just a list of some of my favorite basic stones, but I do recommend if you are looking to get into crystals that you go to a shop in person and feel for the energy. You might see a crystal that catches your eye and walk past it multiple times before picking it up. You might pick it up and immediately feel a connection to it or feel the energy travel through your body. Whatever it is, pick what feels right for you because that’s your intuition speaking, and you are in need of what that crystal can offer.
