6 Crystals For Growth + Self Development

Any crystal that you are drawn to can be useful for growth and self development. This is because we are normally attracted to the crystals with energies related to the qualities that we are trying to develop in ourselves.

Crystals that you don’t like can also be useful for becoming aware of and releasing blocked emotions which may be blocking you from making positive changes. The following process can help with this:

  1. Hold the crystal in your hand and ask yourself what it is that you don’t like.
  2. Notice if it brings up any bad memories or negative emotions and where about in the body you feel these negative emotions.
  3. Ask the crystal to release these emotions. Take 5 – 10 deep breaths and on the out breath, imagine these negative emotions being released by the body and being absorbed by the crystal.
  4. Find a crystal with the positive aspects of the crystal you dislike and place it on the area of the body where you felt the negative emotions. If you’re not sure you can place it on the heart.
  5. Breathe in to this body part and visualise yourself breathing in the positive aspects of the crystal. Repeat this 5 – 10 times with deep breaths.
