Attract your desires with healing stones
For some, the law of attraction seems too good to be true. For others, manifesting their dreams and desires through this “law” is a way of life.
Some say that by harnessing this so-called universal power through the art of manifestation, almost anything is possible. There are even specific strategies, including the use of crystals, that can help achieve this.
Although there is no scientific evidence to support this, there are still many believers. Read on to find out what proponents are saying about using crystals to manifest the life you want.
First of all, what exactly manifests?
Simply put, it’s the process of making your desires come true using the law of attraction.
“The most widely understood basic premise of the Law of Attraction is that thoughts become things, and what we focus on, we see more of in our reality,” says Esther McCann, Coach and Spiritual Mentor at Law of Attraction.
Manifesting is also something we do unconsciously. Believers say we manifest our realities all the time with our expectations, thoughts, and feelings.
“The Law of Attraction can be harnessed by developing an awareness of those thoughts, feelings, and beliefs we have and how they affect how we show up energetically in this world,” McCann explains.
Emma Halley, crystal therapist and spiritual wellness coach, explains that the law of attraction is based on energetic principles.
“We know that everything in the universe is made of energy at the subatomic particle level, and our thoughts carry a vibration of their own,” she says. “When we consider ‘like attracts’, the things we think about and focus on become part of the vibration we ourselves carry, and therefore attract.”
At its most basic, manifesting means coming into vibrational alignment with your desires.
“The key to manifestation is creating a mindset that carries the same vibrational frequency as the life we want to live,” Halley explains.
Some people use crystals to match this vibrational frequency.
Although the law of attraction is practiced by people all over the world, it is not without opponents.
Some dismiss it as wishful thinking, others as complete nonsense. So what does science say?
Some research supports the idea that positive thinking can lead to a happier life. A 2005 review of research with over 275,000 participants found that people with “positive affect” were more likely to experience increased levels of success in health, work and relationships.
A 2010 research review found that visualizing your desires as if they had been fulfilled, a popular manifestation practice, improved the likelihood of that desire becoming a reality.
Meanwhile, a 2016 study found that positive visualizations had the power to reduce anxiety and improve feelings of happiness.
It is important to note that there is no evidence that conclusively proves the existence of the law of attraction.
However, anecdotally, there are a growing number of people who credit the Law of Attraction with helping them manifest everything from increased levels of wealth and material possessions to improved health. , new opportunities and everything else.
So how can crystals help you vibrationally align with what you want?
Whether it’s attracting your soul mate, getting more money, or improving your health, believers say there is a crystal for it.
Crystals are said to carry powerful energies that can be harnessed to influence the energy around and within us. Some believe it can help with the manifestation process.
“Crystals are small, super-powerful life forces that grow organically, just like plants, animals, and people,” Halley explains. “They carry an electrical charge through the crystal structure known as piezoelectricity.”
Halley believes that piezoelectricity, defined as electrical polarization caused by mechanical stress, influences the vibration of the crystal as well as the user energetically.
While research on crystal healing is lacking, Halley suggests keeping an open mind.
“A lot of people think crystal therapy is a placebo. I’d like to think that after 20 years in the business, I can say with some certainty that it’s so much more than that,” she says. “If that improves a person’s quality of life, so why reject it because we can’t fully explain or understand it yet?”
Although current science does not confirm it, there is no harm in trying crystal manifestation, especially if you keep your expectations realistic.
There are many different crystals that can help you manifest certain things in different areas of your life, according to crystal proponents.

- Iron Pyrite: removes feelings of inadequacy that can keep you from achieving your dreams, says Halley.
- Clear Quartz: can help you clarify what you want and is believed to raise your vibration to match your desires.
Some common ways crystals are used to manifest include:
- setting intentions
- wear them
- place them in your home or surroundings
- meditate with them
- use them in rituals
Set an intention
Setting an intention for your crystal essentially means giving it a purpose. To do this, write down your intention or say it out loud.
When setting an intention, Halley advises placing the crystal in your hand and focusing on your intention as if it had already happened.
Many people like to wear crystals as jewelry or keep them on throughout the day. The most popular crystals can be purchased as pendants, or you can put one in your pocket to keep safe.
Keep them around
If you don’t want to wear your crystals, you can place them in your house. McCann and Halley are both fans of this.
McCann suggests placing crystals in areas that correlate to your goal.
“For example, pyrite and citrine could be placed in the office where money is earned. Or they can be carried in a bag or placed under a pillow at night,” she says.
Meditate with them
Combining crystals with meditation can amplify your manifestation abilities.
McCann says it’s because meditation allows you to calm down resistant thoughts that may be keeping you from manifesting. She also believes that meditation can help you receive divine guidance on how to move forward.
“Crystals can be used as a focal point for people practicing mindful meditation,” she says. “What we release energetically allows us to make room for new manifestations to flow into our experience.”
Don’t forget to clean your crystals
Clearing your crystals removes stagnant or unwanted energies and should be done regularly to maintain their purity.
To clean your crystals:
- put in a bowl of salt
- go under fresh water
- use sound healing tools like singing bowls
- place in the sun or moonlight
- stain with frankincense, sage or palo santo
Before putting your crystal in water, check the type on the Mohs hardness scale to make sure it won’t dissolve.
Halley says that not only do you have to be careful not to waste money on counterfeits when buying crystals, but it’s also important to be aware of overmining.
“The crystals come from the earth, where they can take thousands of years to grow. There is only a limited supply,” she says.
When combined with the Law of Attraction, many people believe crystals can be used to manifest our dreams and desires faster. This is due to their alleged vibrational energies.
Of course, not everyone believes in the power of crystals or the law of attraction, and there is no scientific research that can prove their effectiveness.
However, some say that doesn’t mean you should reject them.
“I like to remember that there’s magic in everything, and we don’t need to know all the answers,” Halley says.
Whatever your opinion of manifesting with crystals, there’s no harm in trying it out for yourself.
