Psychic development requires both work and dedication, but crystals can help as you practice visualization, build trust in intuition, and work with divination tools. You will make mistakes because there is no way to fast track these skills. However, crystals can help you as your practice.
How Crystals Help
As you study psychic development in classes or books, in whatever way you choose, crystals can be of assistance. This is because crystals are highly energetic, making them allies for spiritual growth as well as psychic awareness. Those who are drawn to crystals will often deeper sensitivity and abilities simply by working with crystals over time.
Crystals can be used to cleanse the chakra and allow them to open so energy can be better sensed. Since the chakras are the areas that spiritual information from your angels, soul, or the Universe is passed through them, they are important.
Working with Crystals
There are a number of ways to work with crystals to enhance your intuition and psychic abilities. This can start by wearing or carrying the stone with you. Focused intent offers the best results as you focus clearly on your desire each time the crystal is touched. It is also possible to program your crystal if you wish to work with it long term to develop psychic abilities.
Place the stone on your third eye chakra or the crown chakra for 10 to 15-minute sessions. If you feel pressure or a headache, stop and do shorter sessions once a week or more often as you can handle. If the problem persists, stick to wearing the crystal.
When choosing a crystal, choose one that speaks to you. You may choose one or more, but only one is needed. A few of the top choices are included below for building psychic ability.
There is a purple form of Quartz, know as Amethyst, that ranges in color from light to dark and in a variety of shades including clear, opaque, and translucent. Amethyst has been known to clear and open the crown and third eye chakra to awaken abilities, especially clairvoyance. Amethyst further offers psychic protection, but some find it too strong.
Banded amethyst, commonly called chevron or dream amethyst, is a combination of white quartz and amethyst. The zig-zag patterns throughout the stone create unique patterns and further cleanses and activates the necessary chakras. This stone is especially useful for building psychic insights and claircognizance.
Lapis Lazuli ranges from a dark midnight blue, opaque stone to a slightly brighter blue, both with golden pyrite running throughout. There may also be slight streaks of patches of calcite within each stone. This crystal has been shown to enhance astrological knowledge as it opens your third eye chakra and connects with cosmic energies to bring on stronger intuition.
Clear quartz can be clear or only partially clear, but should always be totally colorless. This common crystal will cleanse and open up the crown chakra so psychic messages are easier to receive from guides and angels. Clear quartz provides greater clarity to visions and insights.
Aqua aura is a beautiful stone created when gold bonds to natural crystals to create a teal, blue-green crystal with a sheen. This awakens natural psychic abilities, shields you from negative energy, and enhances intuition.
Commonly known as white labradorite, rainbow moonstone is clear to white with a sheen of colors, most often blue and green. Some rainbow moonstones will contain black spots, but it is still useful for psychic development, especially psychic dream and clairvoyance.
Moonstone, unlike rainbow moonstone, is off white or cream-colored with a pearl-like sheen, but no other colors. This crystal helps you to develop stronger sensitivities to both emotions and energies. Moonstone further enhances the ability to receive messages through dreams and intuition.
This form of quartz is from a specific mine in New York, known as Herkimer Mine. The diamond-like brightness and clarity can help activate the third eye chakra and awaken psychic abilities. Typically growing into small, double-terminated crystals, it is useful for clarity and clairvoyance.
