Using crystals for manifesting is something that has been done for ages, by many cultures and people.
But knowing where and how to start can be quite intimidating and confusing. but no need to worry! In this blog I will explain some manners on how to use your crystals for manifesting your dreams. feel free to adapt to what feels right for you. your inner guide will guide you through this, and knows exactly what is right for you.
WHAT IS MANIFESTING?
Before we dive into manifesting with crystals, a short summary onto what manifesting actually is.
Everyone from Oprah to Jim Carrey embraces this practice as a way to actualize goals and bring what they most desire into their life. People claim to manifest money, new jobs, and even love.
But what does manifesting mean, really?
Manifesting is based on the "law of attraction", or the idea that you get what you put out into the world.
Manifesting is all about using your thought patterns, mindset, and self-beliefs to attract what you want most.
Your thoughts and beliefs have immense power to shape your reality. If you have a negative outlook, or focus on the obstacles, the way you think can hold you back.
But if you shift the way you think to be more positive and proactive, it can help move you forward in such amazing and incredible ways.
You have the power to change anything, because you are the one who chooses your thoughts and you are the one who feels your feelings. You create your own universe as you go along. —Rhonda Byrnes, author of The Secret
Manifesting is not a way to magically conjure up whatever you want without putting in any work.
Think of manifesting like setting a goal, and then using your mindset to help you get there. It's a mindfulness exercise in focusing your thoughts and energy on what you want to achieve the most, and believing that it's possible for you.
MANIFESTING WITH CRYSTALS
Crystals can be powerful tools on their own but are also ideal for manifesting your dreams and goals, as they can help you focus your thoughts and energies. They also have their own health benefits. You can find crystals for anxiety, crystals to help you sleep, to give you confidence—you name it.
below I will list 4 simple steps to start manifesting with crystals.
STEP ONE: PICK THE RIGHT CRYSTAL FOR YOUR MANIFESTING RITUAL
If love is your goal, rose quartz is the stone of universal love and restores balance and harmony to your relationships. If you’re looking to increase passion and sex drive, garnet is the stone for you. It revitalizes energy and promotes passion, love, and admiration.
If you're wanting to feel more confident, Citrine attracts abundance and promotes prosperity. It is also thought to raise self-esteem and confidence. Moonstone balances you, from your emotions to your hormones.
Once you’ve found the crystals that suit you, you can either hold them or have them around you while you practice manifestation. Some people like to chant or say their intentions out loud, but you can also sit quietly and think about your desires and goals—letting your crystals pick up your energy.
again; do what feels right for you. If you feel that you need your clear quartz crystal to help you manifest love? then go for it.
STEP 2: CLEANSE & RECHARGE IT'S ENERGY
Once you've picked out your crystal, it's important that you cleanse it to clear away all the energy of the many hands that touched it before you. I like to run a new crystal under clean water and then place it outside under the sun or moon for a few hours.
Please do your research on how to cleanse which crystals, as some are not suitable to run under water as they will dissolve (think of selenite) or are not recommended to leave in the sun too long as they will start to fade in color (think of amethyst)
My favorite way is moonlight; as this is suitable for all stones. You won't need to wait until a full moon to charge / cleans your crystals. Yes, it is where the moon is at its most potent power, but you can put them out any night for this ritual; my only advice is not to put them with a lunar eclipse.

STEP 3: SET YOUR INTENTION
This is the fun part — setting your intention in line with the energy of the crystal. The power in this simple ritual is within you, not the crystal. It’s important to hold the crystal in your hands or to touch it if it's a larger stone. Sit quietly and breathe. Connect to your breath, your faith, the Earth that you live on, and the stone that you are touching. For some this is a time for prayer; for others it’s one to clear the mind and simply be. State what you want to manifest in your life. You can say this silently to yourself, but I've found that speaking it aloud creates a more powerful energy.
I love to imagine a white light going through the crystal, as if I'm cementing its intention in it.
STEP 4: WORK WITH YOUR CRYSTALS DAILY
There are dozens of ways you can use crystals, so use your intuition to tell you what works best for you. You can hold them in your hands while meditating, place them under your pillow at night for restful dreams, or put a stone on each of your chakras to become aligned and balanced.
I love placing crystals around my manifesting journal to give it extra power.
The method that is most used is carrying your crystals with you daily, as a reminder and support in manifesting your dreams. again, as mentioned before, the power is within you, the crystal is merely a tool in helping your manifestations.
The list is endless so be creative, connect, and tap in.
please repeat step 2: cleansing your crystals, if you use your crystals heavily. like us, they need moments the cleanse and recharge to be at their best.
WHY DOESN'T IT WORK?
When people try manifesting with crystals they often fail for two reasons:
- Their Desire is strong, but their belief is weak so they sabotage themselves.
- Their Desire & Belief are good, but their connection to the world of energy around their is weak, so they can't see what the universe is truly offering them.
WHAT TO DO TO BECOME A BETTER MANIFESTOR?
What we mustn't forget, is that we all manifest every second of every day. With each thought, emotion and belief that passes through us, we create and shape our reality. The secret is to bring this process under your conscious direction. Some people subconsciously self-sabotage themselves and their efforts to achieve their dreams and desires.
The secret of good manifesting is truly giving in to the process. To do this, you have to strip off the layers of conditioning, the toxic emotions and negative background thoughts and focus on the process. This is easily done through meditation and practice.
If you have an emotional investment in the outcome or have a hidden negative bias, then your manifestation is doomed to fail from the start. Emotional investment in the result blocks the flow, because it demands that the outcome is exactly what you envisage, which may not be for your highest good. So learning to let go is yet another manifesting secret, as is being open to receive.
