The Best Crystals For Decision Making: How To Use Crystals To Enhance Your Powers Of Judgment

Making good decisions is essential for a successful life. It can be the difference between achieving your goals and falling short. However, making good decisions isn’t always easy.

Sometimes we get stuck in analysis paralysis, unable to move forward because we can’t decide the best course of action. This is where crystals can help! 

It’s time to take back control of your life, to seek clarity in the problems you face, and to move forward in the way that best suits you, and these are the best crystals that will help achieve just that!


Amethyst is one of those jack-of-all-trades kinds of crystals that dabble with a bit of everything. It’s both a stimulator and a protector, and helps to boost your life in some ways, and cleanse and relax you in others. 

In this context, amethyst is a fantastic crystal for bringing clarity into your work, granting you the ability to clear your mind and see reality more clearly. When you are feeling overwhelmed or confused, hold an amethyst in your hand and take a few deep breaths.

Focus on your question or dilemma, and then let the amethyst help you to see the situation more clearly. You may be surprised at how much easier it is to decide when you have the clarity that amethyst provides.


Amber may be one of the most well-known crystals, but it’s usually overshadowed by the likes of other more generic crystals. However, this doesn’t detract from the fact that this is another excellent crystal for decision-making.

Amber helps to ground you and provides a sense of stability. This can be helpful when you are feeling scattered or uncertain. If you need help making a difficult decision, hold an amber stone in your hand and imagine yourself rooted firmly to the earth.

Visualize your question or dilemma floating away, and then trust that the amber will help you to make the best decision for your situation.


Charoite, which is commonly referred to as the ‘soul stone’ (although no relation to the Marvel movies), is another excellent crystal for decision-making. This purple stone helps you to see both sides of a situation and find the middle ground.

If you are struggling to decide because you can’t seem to find common ground, charoite can help. This is a unique crystal because it can also help to release your fear of making the wrong decision.

To get instant results from such a crystal, hold a piece of charoite and ask it to help you let go of your fears. Then, trust that this stone will guide you to the best decision for your situation. You should start to see the difference almost immediately.

Lapis Lazuli

A stunning blue stone, Lapis is renowned for its ability to help you to connect with your intuition and trust your gut instinct.

If you are struggling to make a decision because you don’t know what to do, lapis lazuli (see also ‘How To Charge Lapis Lazuli‘) can help you tap into your Higher Self and find the answers already within you. 

Close your eyes, hold the stone in your hand, and imagine yourself surrounded by a blue light. Breathe deeply and ask your intuition to guide you. Then, trust that the lapis lazuli will help you to make the best decision for your situation (see also ‘How to Clean Lapis Lazuli‘).


If you’re looking for a crystal that will encourage positive decision-making, look no further than citrine. Citrine is known as the “success stone” because it is believed to promote success, abundance, and prosperity. 

When facing a decision, hold citrine in your hand and envision yourself making the best choice. This will help to open your mind to new possibilities and increase your chances of making a favorable decision.

Tigers Eye

Tigers Eye

Tiger’s eye is another exceptional crystal and a personal favorite of mine; highly recommended to take with you whenever you travel. This stone is known for its ability to help you see both sides of a situation and make a balanced choice. 

If you feel pulled in different directions or are having trouble seeing the whole picture, hold a tiger’s eye in your hand and allow it to show you all the options. Once you have all the information, you will be able to make a decision with confidence.


Scapolite is a lesser-known crystal, but it is definitely one of the best for decision making. This stone helps you to access your intuition and follow your gut instinct. When you are struggling to make a decision, hold scapolite in your hand and take a few deep breaths.

Then, allow yourself to trust your intuition and go with your gut feeling. You may be surprised at how accurate your intuition is!


Tantalite is a protective stone, a rare but powerful crystal renowned for its protective properties. Its innate energy is fantastic when it comes to blocking and repelling negative energies, which is essential when you want to make good decisions.

Imagine you’re facing a stressful situation, like a project has fallen apart at work, you didn’t get the grades you wanted, or you’re having an argument with your partner.

These are all intense situations that have the capability to nurture negative energy in large quantities, energy that can cloud your judgment and leave you making bad decisions.

This is the kind of situation where someone has an argument with their partner and ends up in a bar doing something they regret. Protective crystals like tantalite prevent this from happening in the most grounded and peaceful way.

How To Use Crystals For Decision Making?

Now that you know which crystals are best for decision making, it’s time to learn how to use them. The first step is to find a quiet place where you can sit or stand comfortably. 

Hold the crystal in your hand and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths and focus on your question or dilemma. Visualize yourself making the best decision in the situation. Then, open your eyes and let the crystal guide you to the answer.

You can, of course, try experimenting with each crystal in its own way to see what it can do for you. For example, citrine is a very active, optimistic and high-energy crystal, so try to keep using it when making big decisions when at work or when trying to channel your inner creativity.

On the other hand, if you’re experiencing problems in your relationship, try to use a more relaxing and calmer stone, like tantalite, that can help prevent negative energies and emotions from clouding your judgment.


Making good decisions is an essential part of life, but it’s not always easy. Luckily, all these crystals can help! Of course, we’re all our own people, so it can be worth trying different crystals to see which work best for you.

After all, many crystals have many different properties, and will work in different ways, so don’t be afraid to have fun with them!
