The Best Crystals to Enhance Intuition
Intuition is something that exists within every one of us and yet it is something that many of us doubt. In a society that places more value on the rational mind than the intuitive one, it is common from a young age for people to dismiss their innate instinctual abilities and fully immerse themselves in the rational mind.
But in the words of Einstein: “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant; we have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
Sadly, the intuitive mind is suffering from some kind of neglect in society as a whole. The sixth sense, the chakras, the funny feeling in your belly when you just know that something is wrong … they are given little priority in a world where logic and reason reigns supreme.
And yet, our intuitive nature is a fundamental, crucial part of ourselves that, when harnessed and nurtured, can be a brilliant aid in helping us get through life. Though many people bury their intuition or shrug it off, every single person has the opportunity to help their intuition flourish. This is where crystals come in handy!
Because crystal energy is so powerfully connected to the Universe (thereby strongly connecting to our soul which is the beehive of intuitive prowess), different crystals are fantastic at helping us strengthen our own intuitive powers.
Below is a list of crystals that can help you nurture your intuition!
Amethyst is a crystal of high vibration and connects strongly to the sixth chakra, otherwise known as the Third-Eye, which it vibrates at the same frequency to. Amethyst connects with our energy center in order to strengthen and empower our intuition. Amethyst is fantastic for calming the mind, and a calm, peaceful mind is essential to tapping into your intuition.
