Sometimes we may just hold a blurry wish that we feel so eager to make true, however, if we look closely we find ourselves attached to a wish that is not clear and not precise enough which can make the path towards manifesting it difficult and confusing.

Plus, one of the fundamental rules to manifestation is to truly know exactly what do you want to manifest? and what is your specific intention?

The more precise you are, the more you are closer to accomplishing your goal.

Set your mind on a definite goal and observe how quickly the world stands aside to let you pass. – Napoleon Hill

So, begin by asking yourself what do I want to manifest? what is my most desired intention?

Manifesting your dream job, adopting a healthier lifestyle, letting go of a negative mindset…be open and precise in selecting your intention, and especially don’t discourage yourself and don’t listen to this little noisy voice that tells you that you are not worthy of accomplishing your dreams.

Let me tell you this, you are totally capable of doing it!

The method that I personally do when I want to pinpoint and be closely in tune with my intention is to bring it to real life.

Meaning that I began by writing my intention on a simple white paper, I write in detail what I want to manifest.

The moment you convert your intention into a written form, you are in the process of transforming your wishes into a physical form by physically writing and bringing life to your aim.

2. Choose your crystal

After acknowledging your intention, the next step is to choose an adequate crystal.

Choose your crystal

Knowing the healing vibrations of your crystal will not only supply with empowering and calming feelings, but it also helps you amplify good energies around you which facilitate the path towards fulfilling your deepest aspirations.

For example, citrine can be used in manifesting abundance, wealth, and prosperity, you can set intentions with a citrine crystal if you want to attract financial abundance and success in all areas of your life.

Another helping factor in choosing the right crystal is to just follow your intuition, you can absolutely pick your preferred crystal that you feel most drawn to.

Whether you feel allured by its shape, color hues, shine, or you just sense an inexplicable attraction towards it, simply choose the crystal you are naturally pulled to.
