Consider your intention prior to selecting healing gemstones to ensure the perfect fit of stone to purpose.
Begin the selection process by setting a clear and concise intention. Consider if the stone should ground, cleanse, bring in new energy, or focus on a particular chakra.

You may also take into consideration the chakra that you wish to align with, and look for stones that correspond to the associated chakra color.
Employ Divination Methods to Select Stones
