What Should I Expect from my Crystal?

woman with three crystal ballsYou've heard the hype about crystals, and now you want to be a part of the wonderful world of healing stones.

Most people fall in love with new gemstones and jewelry instantly.

But, some people can't feel the energy. What happens then?

If your crystal or meteorite didn't meet your expectation, you're probably feeling disappointed. Don't give up yet, this article is meant specifically for you...

What should I expect from my crystal? 

Nothing. You should expect nothing at all from your crystal. Your crystal is perfect on its own. If you cannot feel the energy from your crystal, it doesn't mean there is something wrong with it. Most likely, you need more practice.

Recently, a customer of ours ordered our most popular products, a Mini Moldavite. After she placed the order, she sent us an email asking "What should I expect from my crystal?".

She had already set herself up for disappointment. Most likely, she had heard the hype about Moldavite, watched videos of people having transformational experiences, and set high expectations for herself and her gemstone. Little did she know that each person's experience is as unique as they are.

Another customer recently asked to return her Mini Moldavite. She said that because she could not feel it, it must be fake.

What went wrong? People who think that crystals should shower them with magical experiences right away have misplaced expectations.

When you come into the world of crystal healing with lofty expectations, you're setting yourself up for disappointment and failure. The truth is, there's nothing wrong with the Mini Moldavites given to either of those two customers. Not only are they real, but they are our most popular crystals right now- with lots of raving 5-star reviews.

While most people can feel and benefit from stones immediately, others have to work at it. If you are reading this article, you are most likely one of those people who needs more time and practice with their crystal.

    Why can't I feel my crystal?

    Were you able to ride a bike without falling the very first time you set your foot to the pedal? If so, you would be considered a rare prodigy.

    Just like most things in life, learning to feel crystals is an activity that needs to be practiced repeatedly. 

    We often have people writing to us asking for help because they can't feel their crystals. They think the crystals could be fake because they can't feel the crystal. Sometimes they don't like it because the crystal feels bad.

    These people expect to experience sensations at the level of a professional, but they are just on the very first step of their crystal journey. When you are a beginner, you have to start at the bottom and work your way up. 

    I have been working with crystals for over 20 years. At first, all I could feel when I walked into a crystal store was an overwhelming headache. I couldn't be around large amounts of crystals for a long time without feeling bad.

    However, I didn't give up after several unpleasant experiences. I didn't blame the crystal. I understood that crystals have high vibrating energy. It was my low vibrating energy that was having a hard time adjusting to the higher and more spiritual frequency of the stones.

    After working with crystals full time and professionally for about 5 years, I could finally say I was able to feel my crystals. The moment it clicked was when I started my guided meditation group. The words just flowed out of me and the crystals begin to make an impact. My low, earth vibrations had finally risen to match the high-vibrations of the healing crystals.

    When we opened the Satin Crystals store, we encountered all kinds of wonderful people. Many were empaths and psychic and could feel crystals instantly. Others would come to my classes and meditations but even after two years of dedication, they couldn't feel crystals. Did they give up? No.

    Some people are good at math, some people need lots of practice. And no one jumps to advanced algebra without learning the basics first.  

    If you're sad and angry because you can't feel your crystals, don't give up. It may take years, as it did for me. 

    If you give up on your crystals and meteorites because you're demanding that they give you instant results, you will have a lot to lose and nothing left to gain.

    Instead, keep working diligently at it. Engage in affirmations, meditations, healing rituals, chakra balancing, and other energy healing endeavors. The crystal healing journey is not done in a minute, it is done throughout a lifetime.

    What experience will I have with my crystal?

    The experience you have with your crystals is unique to you. Just like everyone in the world has their own life experiences, no two people will share the same crystal experience.

    Whereas you may be moved by a baby's first step, I may feel no joy in the act. Whereas I may gush over an abstract painting, you may roll your eyes. Each one of us reacts differently to every situation. Our feelings are different. If they weren't, we would all have the same thoughts and sentiments all the time. 

    As I mentioned above, many people we meet had soul-shaking experiences with crystals while others could feel nothing.

    The important thing is that you have a positive mindset. If you are trying to do crystal healing with doubtful and cynical thoughts, you are harming yourself instead.

    Let it go and let it flow. Then, the crystal will flow as well.

    Some experiences that people have reported with our crystals include:

    • A person who bought a Satin Crystals Citrine pyramids reported an unexpected gift of $200 cash came to her immediately

    • A person who bought a Satin Crystals Moldavite Necklace reported that a streak of good luck came her way since wearing it

    • A person who bought a Satin Crystals Angelite ball reported he was able to connect with his guardian angels

    • A person who bought a Satin Crystals Lapis Egg was able to successfully use it on his Youtube channel

    • A person who bought a Satin Crystals Rose Quartz bracelet felt happy

    If you are like the very last person who feels happy with your crystals, rest assured that you are on the right path.

    Is this crystal fake? I am advanced, but can't feel it

    Perhaps your crystal intuition is developed and you have the privilege of sensing energies with ease. However, you may still come across a crystal that you can not feel. Why is this?

    Don't jump to conclusions. If you are immersed in the crystal world, you are probably sourcing your stones from a reputable vendor. Your crystal is most likely not a fake. 

    Some reasons you may not be feeling this particular crystal's energies: 

    • You are not ready for whatever energy this crystal has to offer
    • You don't need this crystal's energies anymore
    • You and this crystal do not vibrate on the same wavelength

    If you find yourself with a crystal whose energies you can not feel right away, go back to the basics.  Work with it, develop a relationship, and let go of negative thoughts.

    At the very least, you have a beautiful gift bestowed to you by Mother Earth herself. Consider gifting it to someone who needs this healing energy and will be appreciative of your generosity. 

    What is the best way to get rid of my crystal?

    If you have tried all the methods above but you don't seem to be vibing with your crystal, the best way to free yourself of its energies is to gift it. Someone else may have great success with the crystal in question. Perhaps you were the conduit, the messenger, who was meant to bless them with the stone. 

    If you just want to lessen the crystal's presence in your life, place it in a room or a cabinet that you don't go to often. A customer of ours related a story about how her fiance could not sleep well in their bedroom. They traced it back the same time she got her Moldavite gemstone and put it on her bedside. Once they removed the Moldavite from the bedroom and placed it in the living room, he started to sleep soundly again. Perhaps you just need a little break from crystal's energies. 

    Where do I go from here?

    If you want to give crystal healing a try, we have all natural gemstones that modern healers love.

    I love your work and the sharing of your personal experiences with specific crystals. Your YouTube channel has been very helpful. In one article you mention Chrysocolla is one of your top three favorite crystals. Do you have a list providing your top 5? Or which crystals rank #1 and #2 in terms of your favorites? I’m simply asking, in order to grow my own collection. I would also love to see more material on merkaba and how to use them in practice.
