Crystals for manifesting – how to manifest with the best crystals 2023

Using crystals in your manifestation practice is a powerful way to transform your desires into reality. These stunning gifts from the Earth have unique properties that align your body, mind, and soul with your desires, supercharging your manifestations and bringing your dreams to life.

In this article, we’ll look at the science behind crystal energy and explain how they balance our bodies, remove blockages, and speed up manifestation. 

I’ll also provide practical tips for using crystals in your manifestation practice, so you can start creating the life you’ve always dreamed of.

Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned manifestor, this article will give you all the knowledge and tools you need to manifest with crystals!

What does manifesting with crystals mean?

Crystals have played a significant role in the spiritual practices of many cultures over the centuries.

Crystals have recently gained popularity in the manifesting world – but what’s the connection between crystals and manifesting?

First, let’s look at the science behind crystals.

The science behind crystal energy

Crystals are formed from repeating patterns of molecules and atoms in a crystalline structure. This structure allows the crystal’s energy to vibrate at a specific frequency, making it an excellent tool for energy work. And by working with particular crystals, we can align our energy with the crystals, enhancing our manifestation.

Crystal energy also works according to the scientific concept of resonance. Resonance is a phenomenon that happens when two objects vibrate at the same frequency. As a result, crystals can draw in the energy of the desire you want to manifest.

Crystals for manifesting

Why manifest with crystals?

One of the benefits of manifesting with crystals is their ability to amplify your intentions and energy. As I mentioned earlier, crystals are known for their ability to hold and emit energy.

Crystals also help you overcome mental or emotional blockages hindering your manifestation efforts. They work by balancing and harmonizing your energy centers or chakras (which I’ll explain later in this article). This helps release negative energy and allows positive energy to flow freely. So not only do crystals help you manifest – but they also help you release negativity, stress, and anxiety.

A third benefit of manifesting with crystals is their versatility. It’s super easy to incorporate crystals into your daily routine! 

Here are some ways you can use crystals:

  • Wearing them: Wearing crystals as jewelry is a great way to keep their energy close to you at all times. You could wear a necklace or a ring with a crystal corresponding to your manifestation goal. Or, if you’re not fond of jewelry, you can keep one in your pocket, where it’ll still be close to you all day.
  • Place them in your environment: Another way to use crystals is by placing them in your environment. You can place a crystal next to your bed, under your pillow, or on your office desk to bring in the energy of your desire. Or, you can create a crystal grid, which I’ll show you how to do later.
  • Meditate with them: Using crystals during meditation is another powerful way to bring your manifestation into your life. You can hold the crystal, place it on your body, or even right next to you. Later, I’ll take you through a step-by-step crystal meditation method.

The last benefit of using crystals is that there are hundreds of different types of crystals, each with a unique energy signature. This means that there’s a crystal for any desire you can imagine!

How crystals work with the human body

Crystals work with our bodies by clearing and balancing our energy centers – our chakras.

Chakras are a concept from ancient Vedic teachings. The chakras are the seven main energy centers in our body responsible for regulating our spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being.

Each chakra is associated with an area of our life. When our chakras are aligned and balanced, we feel healthy, vibrant, and connected to our higher selves.

The seven chakras are:

  • Root chakra (Muladhara): This chakra is at the base of our spine and is associated with grounding, stability, and basic survival needs. Its color is red.
  • Sacral chakra (Svadhisthana): This chakra is located just below the belly button and governs creativity, sensuality, and emotions. Its color is orange.
  • Solar plexus chakra (Manipura): This chakra sits at the solar plexus, which is in the upper abdomen. It is associated with personal power and confidence, and its color is yellow.
  • Heart chakra (Anahata): This chakra is positioned in the chest’s center and linked to love, compassion, and relationships. Its color is green.
  • Throat chakra (Vishuddha): This chakra is based on the throat and manages our ability to communicate and express our authentic selves. Its color is light blue or turquoise.
  • Third eye chakra (Ajna): This chakra is located on the forehead and correlates with intuition, perception, and inner wisdom. Its color is indigo.
  • Crown chakra (Sahasrara): This chakra sits at the top of our heads and is associated with spiritual connection, enlightenment, and consciousness. Its color is violet (or sometimes white).

Each crystal is associated with a specific chakra (sometimes more than one). We can heal our chakras by placing crystals on them to cleanse, balance and energize them.

Now that we’ve examined the science behind crystals and their interaction with our body’s energy, I’ll discuss how to use them in your manifestation practice.

How to use crystals for manifestation

When using crystals for manifestation, you must understand the importance of setting intentions. Your intention sets the tone of your manifestation, so be clear about what you want. 

I always recommend focusing on the feeling of what you want rather than the specifics – this makes it easier to manifest and guarantees you’ll feel good about your result. So, for example, say you want to manifest a new partner. Instead of focusing on details like their hair and eye color, intend to manifest a partner that you feel intensely attracted to.

In addition to having a clear intention, you must have belief and faith in the manifestation process. This is a critical component of manifestation – we manifest the thoughts and beliefs we focus on, so if you focus on doubt, you’ll just manifest more situations that make you feel doubt!

A great way to build up your belief is by manifesting smaller things. This is because smaller desires have fewer limiting beliefs associated with them, making them much easier to manifest.

Another tip is to start a manifestation journal – every manifestor should have one! Write down every manifestation you receive, no matter how small. When you feel doubt, you can read back and remind yourself of all the things you’ve succeeded in manifesting in the past.

Choosing the right manifesting crystals

Choosing the right crystal is a personal and intuitive process. Of course, it’s essential to trust your instincts and let your intuition guide you; however, I can give you some tips to get you started:

  • What are your intentions? First, you need to consider your goal. Later in this article, I’ll give examples of crystals well-suited to popular manifestation topics.
  • Which crystals are you drawn to visually? Pay attention to the crystal’s color, shape, and texture – which are you drawn to visually? Don’t worry about this being a seemingly ‘superficial’ way of choosing a crystal – our intuition often voices itself through what we feel drawn to.
  • How does it feel when you hold the crystal? If you’re lucky enough to have access to a physical crystal store, I recommend you pick up different crystals and see how they feel when you hold them. It might be very subtle, but you can often feel it when you’ve found the right one.

Next, choose what type and shape of crystal to get. Earlier in this article, I described different ways to use crystals, so think about what suits you. For example, would you like a crystal necklace that you can wear? Or would you prefer to have one that doubles as decor?

The shape of the crystal can also make a difference. For example, crystals with sharp points, such as pyramids and crystal points, have direct and focused energy. In contrast, spheres and polished tumble stones have smoother and more even energy.

How to cleanse and charge crystals

Keeping crystals cleansed and charged is essential, whether you use them for manifestation or not. 

Crystals absorb energy from their environment, and you don’t know what they might have picked up before you got them, so you need to cleanse them. Luckily, it’s straightforward to do. Here are some ways to cleanse your crystals:

  • Submerging in saltwater: Salt is an excellent cleanser that efficiently absorbs negative energy.  Add sea salt to a container with water (one or two teaspoons per pint).. Leave the crystals in the water for a few hours or overnight. Note: ensure that the water won’t damage the crystal. Some crystals, such as malachite, selenite, and hematite, should not be cleansed this way.
  • Smoke cleansing: You can use sage, palo santo, or other purifying incense to cleanse the crystals. Hold the crystal in the smoke for a few minutes while visualizing the negative energies carried up and away.
  • Cleansing with sound: You can use rattles, bells, tuning forks, or singing bowls to cleanse the crystals. Allow the sound vibrations to surround the crystal, either by moving the crystal around the sound source or vice versa. Repeat for a few minutes.
  • Burying in the Earth: This is another excellent way to cleanse crystals of negative energies, as the Earth will absorb and transmute those energies. Bury them in the ground overnight or for a few days.

Next, you will want to charge your crystals. This will enhance and amplify their energy and attune it to your purpose.

Some people like to leave crystals in the moonlight (especially under a full moon) or the sunlight. However, the best way to charge a crystal for manifesting is to use your energy and intention.

My method of doing this is to hold the crystal cupped in my hands while sending energy to it. Here are the steps:

  1. Sit comfortably and still your mind by taking a few deep breaths.
  2. Bring your intention to mind. Imagine this intention as energy in a glowing ball above your head. Give it a color or texture if you wish.
  3. Next, see the energy enter your crown and flow downwards into your body until it reaches your heart. Feel your heart glowing with this energy.
  4. As your heart fills with this energy, see it overflowing and moving out along your arms, all the way to your palms.
  5. See it flowing out into the crystal as it reaches your palms. Imagine the crystal becoming saturated with this energy.
  6. Continue this process for some minutes until you feel that the crystal is full of the energy of your intent.

You can repeat the charging process once in a while to strengthen your intention, while you should cleanse them every few months. Cleansing will remove any energy from the crystal, including your intention, so be sure to charge it again afterward.

Crystal Grids

A crystal grid is a beautiful way to amplify the energy of crystals and your manifestation. A crystal grid is a specific arrangement of crystals following a geometric shape, composed of several crystals that work together to enhance each other.

To create a crystal grid, you’ll first need to choose the types of crystals that you want to include for your specific intention. Next, you’ll need to create a sacred space to put it. A crystal grid is like an altar, so put it somewhere where you feel peaceful and comfortable.

Next, you’ll need to choose a pattern for your grid. There are a few different patterns that you can use:

  • A circular pattern promotes harmony, unity, and balance.
  • A square pattern creates a sense of stability, practicality, and grounding.
  • A triangular pattern promotes focus and determination
  • A star pattern is associated with creativity and inspiration.
  • A spiral pattern can help release old patterns and beliefs, leading to growth and renewal.
  • A flower of life pattern promotes balance, harmony, and spiritual growth.
  • A seed of life pattern represents creation and the cycle of reincarnation.
  • A Metatron’s cube pattern promotes alignment with your higher self and the Divine.

Some people use crystal grid boards with a specific pattern, making it easy to position the crystals. However, you can also use a print-out of the shape you would like, draw it, or even use any flat unmarked surface and place the crystals in the form you want.


How to make a crystal grid

  1. First, choose a central crystal to put in the center of your grid. This is often the biggest crystal in the grid or a crystal with a point, but these aren’t hard and fast rules. Instead, choose the piece you want to symbolize the final manifestation of your intention.
  2. Next, place the supporting crystals around the central piece, following your desired pattern. As you place each crystal, visualize your intention for the specific crystal. For example, if you want to find a new job, you may want to use different types of crystals to increase your confidence and luck and be liked by interviewers:
  3. The final step is activating your crystal grid. To do this, you can use a crystal quartz point, a wand, or even your index finger to link the crystals together energetically. 

First, state your intention out loud. Then, beginning on the outside, draw an invisible line between each crystal to connect them all. Continue until you reach the central crystal, and repeat your intention.

Each time you walk past or look at the crystal grid, you can place your hand on your heart and state your intention again while visualizing the outcome. You can also meditate next to your crystal grid and use it during visualization sessions.

Now, we’ll look at different crystals you can use to manifest various desires.

How to meditate and manifest with crystals

Meditation is a great tool to help you manifest your desires since it calms your mind and helps build your focus. It can also help remove negative thoughts which hinder your manifestation.

You can take your manifestation game up a notch using crystals and meditation together!

A step-by-step crystal meditation guide

Here is a process I like to use for crystal meditation:

  1. Find a comfortable and quiet spot where you won’t be disturbed. Sit or lie down with your chosen crystal in your hand or placed on a chakra on your body.
  2. Start by focusing on your breath. Breathe slowly and evenly, feeling how your body responds as the air enters and exits your lungs. Continue this for a few minutes or until you feel completely calm and still.
  3. Next, focus on the crystal. Imagine the crystal glowing with energy that matches up with your desired manifestation. You can use colors and textures if you wish. For example, for a money manifestation, you might imagine the crystal glowing with sparkly gold energy or the deep green of abundance and growth.
  4. See this energy enter your body through your chakra, and imagine it flowing into every part of your body until you feel completely saturated with it.
  5. Now, start to visualize having what you already desire. Imagine yourself enjoying your manifestation as if it’s happening at this moment.
  6. Stay in this state for as long as you feel comfortable. When you’re ready to come out of the meditation, see the energy of your intention flowing back into the crystal and then out and up. Your desire is now being carried to the Universe, where it can start to manifest.

Manifesting with Crystals: Dos and Don’ts

When manifesting with crystals, you need to be mindful of some common mistakes to avoid. Here are a few: 

  • Lack of intention: Ensure you know what you want to manifest and focus on the intention. A crystal won’t do all the work for you.
  • Expecting instant results: Manifestation takes time and patience. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see results right away.
  • Ignoring your intuition: Listen to your inner voice when working with crystals. If you feel drawn to a specific crystal, it doesn’t matter what anyone else says! Use the one that you feel is right.
  • Being too attached to the outcome: Let go of any attachment to the outcome of your manifestation. Trust that the Universe has a plan for you, and be open to receiving it in any form.

Here are some tips for enhancing your manifestation practice:

  • Practice gratitude: Be thankful for what you already have in your life – this will help you attract more things to be grateful for!
  • Visualize in detail: Imagine every aspect of your manifestation as vividly as possible, and use all your senses – imagine you have what you desire – what do you see, hear, feel, smell, and taste?
  • Stay consistent: As I said above, manifestation takes time and patience. Consistency is important here. While it’s possible to visualize once and have it manifest, most of us need to be more consistent in our visualizations to overcome any subconscious resistance.
  • Let go of attachment: Let go of any attachment to the outcome of your manifestation. Trust that the Universe will bring you what you need, even if it doesn’t look exactly like you imagined.
  • Self-care: Take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When you feel good, you will radiate positive energy and bring your manifestation faster. 


Manifestation is a powerful practice; using crystals can supercharge the process. So whether you’re looking to manifest love, money, happiness, or success, there’s a crystal that can help you. With the right crystal and the right mindset, the possibilities are truly endless!

Finding the crystals and techniques that resonate with you may take trial and error, but consistency and patience are vital for manifesting. With time and practice, you’ll master the process.

Trust yourself, and most of all, remember to have fun exploring the world of crystals! These precious stones are truly beautiful gifts from the Earth, and they can change your life for the better if you let them.



  • What if I don’t feel any effect from my crystal? It can take time and practice to learn to feel the energy. Practicing crystal meditation is a great way to develop this skill.
  • Can I use more than one crystal at a time? Absolutely! However, to avoid getting overwhelmed, I recommend working with only a few at a time until you learn to feel their energy and master the crystal manifestation process.
  • How often do I need to cleanse my crystals? This varies depending on how heavily you use them, but a good rule of thumb is every 1-2 months.
  • Do I need to believe in the power of crystals for them to work? Crystals will balance your energy regardless of whether you believe in them. However, manifestation requires belief to be truly effective.
  • Can I use synthetic crystals for manifestation? Some people successfully use synthetic crystals such as goldstone, opalite, and aqua aura. Natural crystals are best, but I recommend experimenting and seeing what works.
  • How long does it take for crystal manifestation to work? This depends on your limiting beliefs and ability to focus on your intention. The more you practice, the faster it will get!
  • How do I know which crystal is right for me? Listen to your intuition, and see which crystal you’re drawn to, even if you think you’re just drawn to it because it looks pretty.
  • Can I use crystals for manifesting with other spiritual practices? Absolutely! Crystals are very versatile and can fit into nearly any spiritual practice.
  • What should I do if my crystal breaks or gets lost? Sometimes crystals break due to absorbing negative energy. In this case, thank it for helping you and bury it in the earth. If it gets lost, it’s a sign that you no longer need it, and it’s time to find a new crystal to help you.
