An extensive guide to using crystals for manifestation in the areas of love, wealth, and abundance, broken down by which crystals are best for what and how to implement them into your daily routine.
Manifestation is a powerful tool that many swear by for building their dream life. In fact, I used to be one of them! (Back in the day when I was disciplined and actually set time aside for manifesting... alas, full-time work has a way of sucking the motivation out of me.)
However, something I've never tried is manifestation crystals. Which is crazy - I absolutely love crystals and manifestation. Why not combine the two?
So I have put on my research hat, read all the articles, and watched all the videos. And today I am excited to share my beginner's guide to manifestation crystals with you all! It's a hefty post, so here's a table of contents if you want to skip to a particular part.
In simple terms, manifesting is focusing your energy and intentions towards a specific goal and, through the power of your thoughts, attracting that into your life.
You can get as spiritual as you like around it; delve into energy or the universe. Whatever you believe! However, I'm somewhat more of a cynic and believe in manifestation more in the psychological sense.
Psychology Today's article about manifestation has a passage that summarizes my feelings towards it almost perfectly:
Research by Dr. Carol Dweck clearly shows that believing you can do something makes it more likely that you'll successfully do it. That means that our beliefs about our ability to learn, grow, and succeed-our growth mindset-can indeed affect whether we effectively manifest what we desire.
Importantly, this research suggests that if we truly believe we can achieve something, we are willing to do the hard work to achieve it. This is in contrast to law-of-attraction style manifestation which suggests that belief alone is enough to bring about manifestation. Ultimately, the science suggests that our beliefs bring about behaviors (and responses from others) that lead to the outcomes we desire.Reference: Psychology Today: What Is Manifestation? Science-Based Ways to Manifest
I don't necessarily believe in "the universe looking out for me" - but I strongly believe in the power of sitting down, focusing on a desire, and channeling my energy into it. Personally, physical touchstones of this also help the manifestation stick in my brain - and remind me of my goals day-to-day. Hence, the interest in crystals!
There are a variety of crystals that can be used for manifestation, but some are more effective than others. The best crystals for manifestation are those that correspond to the energy of your Intentions. For example, if you want to manifest abundance, use crystals like Citrine or Aventurine. If you want to manifest love, use Rose Quartz or Rhodonite. And if you want to manifest healing, use Crystals like Lepidolite or tourmaline.
When selecting crystals for manifestation, it is also important to consider the energy of the crystal itself. Some stones have very high vibrations that can amplify your Intentions and help manifest them more quickly. Other stones have lower vibrations that can you to ground your Intentions and make them more stable.
Once you have selected the right crystals for your Intentions, it is important to cleanse and charge them before use. This will help to remove any negative energy that they may have picked up and will also help to activate their energies.
There are a variety of ways to cleanse and charge crystals, but one of the simplest and most effective methods is to place them in direct sunlight for a few hours. Alternatively, you can also bury them in the ground overnight.
When you are ready to use your crystals for manifestation, hold them in your hands and focus on your Intentions. Visualize what you want to manifest and feel the energy of your Intentions flowing through the crystals into your reality.
Believe that what you are manifesting is already yours and Feel thankful for it. Release your crystals with the knowing that your Intentions are on their way to becoming reality.
There are many ways that you can incorporate crystals into your manifestation routine. Here are a few of my favorites that my research has come across:Crystals have been used for manifesting for centuries. Here are some tips on how to use them to create the life you want:
Crystals are known for their ability to help manifest things into our lives. If you're looking to attract love, there are a few crystals that can help. Here are the best crystals for attracting love:
Everybody needs love; whether that's romantic love, family love, or even within friendships. Many people use crystals to manifest deeper connections with their loved ones - or to attract new people into their lives. However, you don't have to look externally. You could even try to use healing crystals to manifest confidence and self-love - from there, the rest tends to fall into place anyway!
Whatever type of love you want to manifest, these 5 crystals are perfect.
Rose quartz is one of the most popular crystals for attracting love. It helps to open the heart chakra and encourages unconditional love.

One of the most popular questions I get asked is how to charge crystals. This is a very important step in using crystals for healing, as it allows you to infuse them with your own energy and Intentions. There are many different ways to charge crystals, so I will share some of the most popular methods below.
One of the easiest ways to charge crystals is by placing them in direct sunlight for a few hours. The sun's energy will cleanse and recharge your crystals, making them ready to use for your next healing session.
Another great way to charge crystals is by leaving them out under the light of the moon overnight. This method is especially powerful during a Full Moon, as the moon's energy is at its strongest.
Crystals can also be charged by placing them in water for a few hours. This is a great way to cleanse and energize them, especially if they have been used for healing recently.
One of the most grounding and stabilizing energies we have access to is the earth itself. You can charge your crystals by burying them in the earth for a few hours, or by placing them on top of the ground or soil.
The energy of the wind is perfect for charging crystals that need a quick burst of energy. You can either blow on your crystals directly, or use a fan to move the air around them.
If you are looking to create a powerful and cleansing energy, then fire is the way to go. You can charge your crystals by holding them over a flame (preferably a natural one like a candle), or by placing them in direct contact with the fire.
One of the most intuitive and powerful ways to charge crystals is by using another crystal. Choose a crystal that resonates with the energy you would like to infuse into your others, and place them all together in a charging bowl or grid.
If you are on the hunt for your manifesting crystals, then consider some of the best places to buy them. Not only will you find a great selection of crystals at these locations, but you can also receive education and support from experts in the field.
