12 Beautiful Crystals For Shifting

If you want to shift realities and need some help charging and aligning your energies, then why not incorporate some crystals?

Crystals can be helpful when scripting your dream reality and meditating to get to your dream reality. 

12 Beautiful Crystals For Shifting

In this article we’ll tell you which crystals are the most effective when shifting reality, cleansing and charging your crystals, and other tips when using crystals to shift to your dream reality.

But first, let’s take a look at how exactly you shift realities using crystals. 

How To Shift Realities With Crystals

There are many ways you can use crystals to improve your reality shifting, let’s take a look at some of the best ways:

Place a crystal under your pillow. This is of course very effective when using the pillow method for shifting. Placing a crystal under your pillow also helps with shifting methods that include sleeping.

When you’re scripting, put a crystal on your desk. A crystal may help you overcome any creative obstacles, so your scripting has a natural and energetic flow. 

Grasp a crystal during meditation. This can help you deepen your awareness and focus, and help you enter a state that makes shifting easier. 

So now we know how we can make the most out of crystals to shift realities, let’s take a look at the best crystals to take with you to your DR (Dream Reality). 

1. Amethyst


Amethyst can help you connect with your spiritual guides.

You can use amethyst with a reality shifting method like the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ method, where you visualize following a person, animal, or even an object down a rabbit hole into your dream reality.

Although you usually have to include a character from your dream reality in this method, you can also visualize your spirit guide taking you to your dream reality.

2. Black Obsidian

Black obsidian is famous for its cleaning energy and ability to banish negative thoughts and energy. These features make this crystal ideal for shifting as it helps you feel grounded and safe as you shift realities. 

This crystal is also famous for its ability to foresee potential future outcomes.

This comes in handy when shifting realities so you can have a clearer idea of what you may encounter in a new reality. If you need spiritual guidance, you can also turn to black obsidian.

3. Black Tourmaline

While shifting realities isn’t dangerous, you may still feel nervous about the prospect. This is where black tourmaline comes in, as it is known for being a protective crystal.

Having black tourmaline with you may make you feel more confident when shifting, as well as safer. This increased security might make it easier to overcome any mental obstacles and allow you to shift. 

Also, black tourmaline is one of the best gemstones for getting rid of negative thoughts, which makes it even more helpful when travelling to your dream reality.

4. Celestite


Celestite is a very spiritual gemstone that can help you detach from your physical world and reach a higher plane of existence.

Celestite can also help you achieve deeper meditations, and these properties can help you disconnect from your current reality and successfully shift to a new one.

5. Citrine

Citrine is a joyful gemstone with an orange-yellow color that can light up your creativity. Citrine is the ideal stone to have while you’re scripting, but you can also take it around with you as you go about your day for inspiration. 

6. Golden Topaz

The golden topaz is an ideal crystal to shift realities. Golden topaz is great for setting intentions and manifesting these intentions into reality.

If you’re struggling to achieve a higher consciousness, golden topaz will expand your mind, which is particularly beneficial for shifting realities. 

7. Labradorite


Shifting is often seen as the art of moving beyond the boundaries of time and space, and so using an incredibly spiritual gemstone like labradorite is very beneficial for shifting.

You can use labradorite to align with a higher plane of consciousness and boost your imagination. Labradorite can help you to visualize more clearly, which is particularly important for a number of shifting methods.

8. Lapis Lazuli

Lapis lazuli is an amazing gemstone for enhancing your intuition and overcoming obstacles.

When used for shifting, lapis lazuli might make it simpler to think of creative solutions to whatever may be preventing you from reaching your dream reality. It might also help you ascend one reality and enter a new reality. 

Those who shift realities use lapis lazuli to connect to their higher selves. Your dream reality self normally represents a more actualized version of yourself, or the self you want to be in your living life.

So lapis lazuli can help you connect with your dream reality self and your dream reality as a whole, bringing you into the universe where you feel like your most authentic self. 

9. Moldavite

Moldavite (see also ‘The Meanings And Properties Of Moldavite‘) is an excellent stone for helping you shift realities. However, this stone shouldn’t be used lightly. It is able to accelerate personal growth, and may cause extreme, rapid changes in your current reality.

These changes may be quite chaotic, and adjusting can be disorienting. However, moldavite can help you become aligned with your most authentic self and discover what you’re truly capable of. 

10. Moonstone


Unsurprisingly, moonstone is closely connected to slumber and the evening, and therefore has a grounding, calming energy.

You can use moonstone in sleep-based shifting methods such as lucid dreaming (Also check out Best Crystals For Lucid Dreaming) to help you slip into slumber, letting go of the pressures of your current reality so you can enter your dream reality.

11. Quartz

The clarifying, cleansing energy of clear quartz can help you overcome your doubt, and its properties make it a strong crystal to hold in your hands or place near you as you vocalize your shifting affirmations.

Quartz is also able to boost energies that flow through the stone, and can be used with other crystals we’ve mentioned to enhance their effects or to act as an energy booster for yourself while you shift realities. 

12. Rose Quartz

Rose quartz is a gemstone that is associated with compassion, warmth, and love. You might be skeptical that this stone can help with shifting, but it is in fact very beneficial, and can help you move in a variety of ways. 

Shifting isn’t hard, but it’s not without its challenges. It requires a lot of concentration and effort, and many people are not successful when they first try shifting.

If you beat yourself up easily, it’s easy to take that self-doubt when shifting and this can just hold you back more.

But rose quartz can encourage you to tackle shifting with more compassion and patience for yourself, which makes the whole process easier.

Rose quartz can also be used to connect to the people in your dream reality. When your vibrations are aligned, your loved ones will be more reachable.

The Importance Of Cleansing And Charging Your Crystals

The Importance Of Cleansing And Charging Your Crystals

When using crystals, you share as much of your energy with them as they share with you.

Because they gradually soak up any negative energy, it’s important to clean your crystals before you use them to get the best results.

Cleansing a crystal can help rejuvenate its original frequencies, and make sure that any negative energies contained in the crystal do not impact on you.

One of the easiest ways to clean a crystal is just to place it under direct sunlight for a couple of hours.

The more you use crystals, the more their energies drain. You can think of crystals like a battery that needs charging. Crystals can also be cleansed and charged at once. But how do you accomplish this?

A few examples would be to bury them in the earth and dig them up, cleaning them with incense, leaving your crystals outside under a full moon, performing a visualization to cleanse them, or running them under water. 

Top Tips For Using Crystals

Now that you know what crystals are best used for shifting, how do you use crystals effectively?

Before you use a crystal, you should make sure you are attuned to the crystal. To do this you need to be spiritually connected to the crystal, and you can do this by taking the crystal in your hands and meditating on it. 

You should also express gratitude to the crystals after you use them. Expressing your gratitude for how your crystal has helped you shift realities helps to foster the connection you have made with the crystal. 

Final Thoughts

Any of these crystals can give you a big helping hand when shifting realities. Using a crystal to successfully shift realities helps you form a powerful link between that crystal and transcending to your dream reality.

Just having your chosen crystal with you the next time you shift realities will make it so much easier to shut out your doubts and shift to your dream reality.

We hope that you enjoy working with these crystals while shifting and find success with them! You’ll be at home in your spiritual reality before you know it!
