This is very basic information, but if you are a novice reaching out for more knowledge, I'd recommend:
- Choose a crystal you feel instinctively drawn to
- Before reading up on it, cleanse it first, then..
- Take it to bed and ask for your dream to reveal how the crystal can help you.
- Read about the crystal, see how your dream (if you have one) relates to what you read
I've had the most amazing revelations doing this !
