The Ideal Starting Crystals For Beginners

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comCrystals and gemstones are a popular resource in modern metaphysical practices, mysticism, and alternative spirituality. It can be used in various powerful ways, including healing, energy protection, meditation, prayer, manifesting, divination, psychic reading, and channeling.

Crystals are versatile and useful in enhancing one’s spiritual practice or energy work, but there are so many to choose from that it can difficult to know where to start.

Three of my favorite crystals that I recommend for beginners to get started with are amethyst, rose quartz and black tourmaline. These three crystals are affordable and easy to find, so they are ideal to start with if you wish to explore using crystals to expand your spiritual practice.


Amethyst is the ideal stone to start with because it has a gentle energy that almost anyone can tolerate without being overwhelmed by its influence. It is a fantastic stone to help you get in touch with your intuition and find your calm center. Amethyst’s calming energy especially enhances meditation and dreamwork.

Amethyst is associated with the crown chakra. It heightens our spiritual and personal awareness, which in turn helps us to self-reflect and evaluate more honestly where we need to make adjustments in our beliefs, behavior, and perspectives. Amethyst thus supports us in maintaining clarity in our self-reflection, which is a vital first step in a spiritual journey of higher consciousness and personal enlightenment.

It is also a stone that helps one to develop your intuition and psychic abilities. By calming us and bringing us back to center, it assists us in perceiving intuitive guidance and psychic information more clearly.

Dream recall also becomes easier when working with amethyst. Keep a piece on your bedside or under your pillow and set the intention to remember your dreams more fully and in vivid detail. Remember to keep notes of your dreams in a dream journal.

Rose Quartz

Rose quartz is the ideal stone for emotional healing and energy clearing. Emotional healing is a significant aspect of one’s spiritual path. In fact, emotional wounds or trauma is often the very reason why people embark on a spiritual journey. Certain events in our life can trigger us to seek deeper meaning and purpose.

A profound spiritual awakening can also uncover aspects of ourselves we may have rejected or neglected in the past, and these aspects will need to be processed and reintegrated for us to become whole and authentic in our self-expression. Rose quartz is a powerhouse in helping us achieve this.

Rose quartz is associated with the heart chakra. It fosters a sense of self-acceptance and self-love, which makes this stone a particularly powerful healer. Rose quartz carries a very gentle, soothing energy. It helps us to access compassion for others and for ourselves, and is known as a stone of deep, universal love. Carrying this stone on your person creates more harmony in our relationships with others.

I personally find rose quartz to be particularly helpful for empaths and sensitives who often tend to take on other people’s emotions without realizing it. Being such a gentle and healing energy, rose quartz helps empaths to shield their energy field from the effects of others’ emotions, as well as to radiate a sense of peace and healing to those who need it.

No two crystals are the same. They are like snowflakes. Each crystal has its own particular vibration, and each will resonate differently. Look for one that will resonate with your being—regardless of size, shape, color, or jeweler’s quality. It’s the intuitive impression which is important ~ Phyllis Galde

Black Tourmaline

Black tourmaline is a grounding and highly protective stone that neutralizes negative energies. It acts very much like an energy shield, as it absorbs and transmutes negative energies we may encounter, while its grounding qualities helps us to maintain solid footing in difficult situations.

It is mostly associated with the root chakra, but it works through all the chakras in the body. Because it neutralizes negative energy, it supports us in seeing more clearly past mental and emotional obstacles, such as bad attitudes or hurt feelings, to find practical solutions.

Also, spiritually aware people tend to be overly focused on higher consciousness, energy work, and emotional awareness, making it vitally important to remain centered and grounded.

Keep this stone close when you know you will be dealing with difficult attitudes and incorporate it into your meditation practice, especially for the purpose of grounding and shielding

There are, of course, many more crystals to choose from, so don’t assume these are the three you absolutely must begin with. I just find them to be a good starting point.

Ideally, when choosing crystals, you need to pay attention to which ones resonate most with you. When I go to a crystal shop, I simply allow myself to be ‘drawn’ to certain stones intuitively. Invariably, I find that whatever I am drawn to tends to be very appropriate for what is going on in my life at that time.

Our soul knows what we need on a deep, intuitive level. Listening to our inner guidance when choosing crystals is therefore a great way to develop one’s intuition and engage with your spiritual self. So, feel free to experiment and have some fun with it!
