5 Tips for Buying Crystals Online:
- Check the reviews and visit their social media. You’ll quickly see which places LOVES their rocks and their customers even more. Great companies are friendly, helpful and want to help you pick the right crystal for YOU!
- Go with what attracts you ALWAYS because that is what you need right now. Trust your intuition and read up on that stone, you’ll most likely find something that you resonate with.
- Don’t rush and buy everything. Add it to a wishlist if there’s one, or note it down and take your time to decide. This helps you to discern what you’re adding because it’s pretty and which you are actually attracted to. What is meant for you will stick in your brain and stay on your mind.
- If the store has photos of a group of stones and you’re attracted to that specific type, message the store to ask if they can send you a photo of a few of those stones to choose one. Most stores are really accommodating and will help you choose. If they’re unable or you’re too shy to ask, HOLD THE INTENTION that the right one will be sent to you. It sounds crazy, trust me, it works!
- Once you receive your crystal/s, be sure to cleanse it and then start working with your crystals mindfully and with intention!
