Intuition is a powerful tool to have in life. By definition, it’s the ability to understand your circumstances innately. It’s being able to trust your instinct. To have a conscious knowledge of your situations or experiences without constant striving for it.
Intuition is about trusting your judgment, but to do so, you have to rely on having a strong connection with yourself and your higher self as you move through the peaks and valleys of life.
While this can come naturally at some points in your life, most of us need a little helping hand to nurture that connection with the soul of the world. Fortunately, plenty of natural crystals can assist you in your spiritual practices, 13 of which we’re exploring today.
Known as the crystal of intuition, few crystals come close to what Labradorite brings into your practice. It starts our journey into this list in the same way it can start your journey into you.

Many believe opening conversation with your higher self is essential, which is ideal for engaging your intuition. Think of Labradorite as a gateway into this dialogue.

This beautiful, water-like stone is all about finding flow through your life circumstances and enhancing your ability to communicate.

The calming blue streaks found throughout the crystal instantly draw comparisons to the calming, serene blues of the sky or peaceful oceans, two worldly elements known for their purifying and cleansing energies.
Kyanite helps bring these energies into your spiritual practices, whether you’re trying to visualize ways of moving past obstacles, reducing the blinding imagery of negativity, or heading straight to the core of your thoughts and feelings.
Amethyst is one of my favorite crystals. By nature, its gorgeous, almost-striking purple shine acts as a fantastic way to bring your mind into the present moment, therefore symbolizing organization and clear-headed energy.
If you’re looking for a way to find flow, cut the negative thinking, and calm intense emotions, meditate or journal with amethyst.
It will help you not waste your sacred energy during the more stressful times in your life, plus it helps soothe potential feelings of swimming against the current, connecting you with the source of the universe.
