The Best Crystals For Intuitive Development

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comCrystals have been used for centuries as a powerful tool to enhance various spiritual, metaphysical, and divinatory practices, but there are so many different types that it can be overwhelming to figure out which crystals to use for what purpose.

Crystals work by interacting with our own energy field and the energies around us. Each type of crystal has its own unique vibrational frequency that enhances, amplifies, or stimulates different energy frequencies of our body, mind, and spirit in specific ways. Some crystals and stones also neutralize, absorb, or balance certain energies.

Understanding the specific properties of different crystals can help in choosing the right ones for specific intentions, goals, and practices.

The energy of crystals is particularly conducive to intuitive perception and psychic development. It is no coincidence that psychics and diviners are traditionally associated with the crystal ball.

Contrary to the popular belief that psychics see actual images inside the ball or reflected on its surface, the true reason psychics traditionally use crystal balls in readings is because it enhances the psychic channeling practice known as scrying.

Scrying is an ancient psychic reading practice that involves gazing into a reflective or illuminated surface to perceive visions and messages from the spirit realm or higher consciousness. The crystal ball amplifies energy awareness, opens psychic channels, promotes mental calm and clarity, and helps the psychic seer focus her intention and attention, making it easier to receive messages and experience clairvoyant inner visions.

I am often asked what crystals I recommend for enhancing intuition and developing psychic abilities. I have four favorite stones that I find very helpful in developing intuition, tuning into your inner voice, and accessing divine guidance.

Keep in mind that when choosing crystals to work with, it’s important to consider your individual preferences. We tend to be drawn to certain crystals based on our unique energetic needs, so it is important that you personally resonate with the crystals you choose to work with.

My recommended stones for intuitive awareness and psychic development are:


Amethyst is a popular crystal known for its ability to open the third eye chakra, the center of intuition and insight. It has a calming energy that can help calm the mind and increase spiritual awareness.

This stone is especially helpful in alleviating anxiety, depression, insomnia and stress. Dealing with these emotions is important in order to better tap into your intuitive inner voice. These lower vibrational emotions tend to cloud our thinking with fear and cause our minds to spiral into all kinds of fearful “what if” scenarios. This makes it much more difficult to hear the voice of our spirit and spirit guides.

Amethyst helps to improve clarity of mind by helping to overcome these negative thought patterns and addictive emotional patterns. It not only helps to enhance intuition, but also dream recall, and often spirit will bring messages to us through our dreams. It helps us to consciously connect with our spirit guides and source.

I also highly recommend using it as an aid in meditation, as its calming aspect helps us to quiet the mind and truly hear the voice of our inner wisdom. It also has protective qualities that can shield us from unwanted energy.

A striking purple stone, amethyst is commonly found in various forms, ether tumbled and polished, in points or geodes, or made into jewelry such as rings, pendants and bracelets.


This stone is also associated with the third eye and crown chakras, as well as emotional healing. It promotes calm and inner peace, which is very important when we want to access higher vibrational energies. It helps us release negative attachments to limiting beliefs, toxic people or dysfunctional circumstances in our lives that are not serving our highest good.

Celestite is also great for creating a stronger connection with spirit guides and angels. Specifically, it connects us to the angelic realm by gently raising our awareness to perceive these divine energies.

Celestites are available polished, in geodes or rough points, and most have a soft blue hue in the translucent stone. My personal favorites are the rough, unpolished pieces.


Powerfully associated with the divine feminine and the third eye and crown chakras, Moonstone is used to enhance intuition, promote self-discovery and spiritual insight, and enhance dreamwork and divination. Its gentle, nurturing energy helps with emotional balance and inner wisdom, making it a valuable crystal for those on a spiritual journey.

This is a wonderful stone to work with if you want to sharpen your intuitive senses. It helps us on our journey within to discover our hidden talents and gifts, and encourages self-reflection.

Moonstone is also a powerful meditative aid, helping us to go deep within ourselves and explore our own consciousness and the wisdom that can be accessed from there. It has a gentle, nurturing energy.

Beautifully iridescent, these stones are most often found polished or made into jewelry such as pendants or rings.

Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz is a powerful and versatile crystal that amplifies energy and intention, making it useful for enhancing intuition and psychic awareness. It can help clear the mind of distractions and promote clarity of thought, making it easier to tune into one’s intuition.

Harnessing the energy of these crystals can assist individuals in their journey to enhance intuition and develop psychic abilities. As a clearing and amplifying stone, it helps to clear our energetic fields and receive messages more directly and clearly. I find it particularly useful in developing intuition and receiving clear messages from spirit guides.

In my experience, this is one of the most versatile stones for any kind of spiritual work, as it can be used to amplify our intentions and aid in almost any kind of healing we are working towards. It can also amplify ambient energies, so it works well with most other stones we may be using. It is also associated with all the chakras, which adds to its versatility.

My favorites are clear quartz points, although you can find this stone tumbled and polished if you prefer to carry it in a pouch with other stones.

How To Use Intuitive Crystals

There are several ways to incorporate these crystals into your daily spiritual practice. You can hold the crystal in your hand or place it near you during meditation and visualization. You can also set up a crystal grid in a pattern that feels intuitively right to you. As you arrange the crystals, visualize them working together to strengthen your psychic senses. The combined energy of the crystals in a grid can create a powerful field that supports your psychic development.

Wearing crystals as jewelry or carrying them on your person consistently attunes you to intuitive awareness and amplifies your reception of spiritual guidance. There are many ways to carry stones, such as in a pouch, as a pendant on a chain, or even just in your pocket. You can also keep them close to you while you sleep to continue to benefit from their influence.

Experiment with wearing each one separately to get a feel for how your personal energy resonates with each one, or work with them together as a powerhouse to enhance your intuitive senses and connection to your divine guides.

Sustainable Crystal Practice

Finally, please use only sustainably and ethically sourced crystals and gemstones in your spiritual practice. This is an important karmic responsibility for a number of reasons.


First, the mining of these stones can have a significant environmental impact, including deforestation, water pollution, and habitat destruction. Some crystals and gemstones are found only in specific locations, and their extraction can put undue stress on local ecosystems. Sustainable sourcing practices can help ensure that these resources are used responsibly and that the environment is not harmed. By choosing sustainably sourced stones, you can help minimize your impact on the planet.


The mining and trading of crystals and gemstones can also have negative social consequences, such as labor exploitation, human rights abuses, and financial instability in local communities. Some crystal mining operations even rely on child labor or other exploitative practices. Sustainable sourcing practices can help ensure that these practices are not condoned or supported. By choosing ethically sourced stones, you can help support practices that are fair and equitable for all workers involved in the process.


Crystals and gemstones absorb and store energy, including negative energy associated with unethical practices. By using sustainably and ethically sourced stones, you ensure that you are working with energy that is clear and pure. Using responsibly sourced stones ensures that you will experience a more harmonious and ethical spiritual practice.

Here are some guidelines for finding sustainably and ethically sourced crystals and gemstones:

Buy from reputable dealers. Look for retailers who are transparent about their sourcing practices and can provide certificates of authenticity.

Support small businesses and local cooperatives. These businesses often have greater control over their sourcing practices and are more likely to implement ethical standards.

Choose recycled or reclaimed stones. These stones have already been mined and given a new life, reducing the environmental impact of your purchase. Be sure to cleanse, charge, and reprogram your crystals to ensure they are free of unwanted energies and fully aligned with your intentions.

Be mindful of your own consumption. Buy only the stones you really need and use them in a way that is meaningful to you. By making conscious choices about the crystals and gemstones you use in your spiritual practice, you contribute to a more sustainable and ethical world.
