Want to learn how to manifest with crystals? You’re in the right place!

Manifesting uses the power of thought to achieve a certain result. It’s a powerful method that many people have used with success, but negative energy can interfere with the process.

Healing crystals can support manifesting by raising your vibration. Manifesting with crystals is also a great way to remove negative energy that may be holding you back.

In this article, I’ll discuss how to use crystals to manifest your desires. I’ll also talk about some of the best crystals for manifesting money, love, and creativity.

How Can You Manifest With Crystals?

To manifest with crystals, choose a stone that aligns with your intention and make sure it’s cleansed. Set an intention by speaking it, while holding the crystal and focusing on the desired outcome. Each morning, visualise that you’ve already received your desires.

What is Manifesting?

How to manifest with crystals

Manifesting is the process of attracting something we desire into our lives. To do this, we can use the power of the mind to create our own reality, through the Law of Attraction.

Anyone can manifest their desires by setting a clear intention. Believing you’ll have abundance, a better relationship, or even a new career makes it more likely that you will.

There are many methods for manifesting, including complex techniques that require knowledge of angel numbers and other aspects of spirituality. But for beginners who aren’t sure where to start, the next section will show a simple method using crystals.

What Exactly is an Intention?

An intention is when you state clearly and succinctly what you desire. Being specific is vital when setting an intention, as you need to be able to clearly visualise the outcome.

Why do Crystals Enhance the Manifesting Process?

Crystals help the manifesting process by removing energy blockages that could prevent you achieving your desires. These energetic blockages often go unnoticed, making them a common reason for problems when manifesting. 

Healing crystals also boost the energies that surround them, which can improve your manifestation abilities.

Now you know what manifesting is and why crystals can help, let’s discuss how to use crystals for manifestation.

How to Use Crystals for Manifestation (Step-By-Step)

Step 1: Choose the Right Crystal

Start by deciding on your goal or intention, then choose a crystal that aligns with that intention. 

There are always multiple stones you could use, so trust your intuition when choosing. There aren’t any wrong choices, but it’s important that the stone resonates with you as well as the intention. This energetic connection will speed up the manifestation.

Step 2: Cleanse the Crystal

Once you’ve chosen your crystal, the next step is to cleanse it. Crystals absorb negative energy from people or the environment they come in contact with, so you need to rid them of this influence. 

You can cleanse a crystal using water, sunlight, moonlight, visualisation, smudging, and many other methods. If you’re not sure how to perform these methods, I’ve written a complete guide to crystal cleansing.

Whichever cleansing method you choose, check that it’s safe for your crystal. Not all crystals are suitable for water or sunlight cleansing.

Step 3: Charge the Crystal

After cleansing, the next step is to charge your crystal. This restores both the crystal’s energy and its highest frequency, making it more effective for manifesting.

My two favourite methods for charging a crystal are moonlight and sound. You can read about these methods (and more) in my guide to charging a crystal.

Step 4: Set Your Intention

When you set an intention, you’re overlaying a desire onto the crystal’s energetic footprint. This is a vital part of the process, so don’t rush it.

  1. Before starting, make sure you’re clear about your intention. Keep it simple, specific, and positive, as the Universe needs a clear understanding of what you’re asking.
  2. Ensure your environment is right for performing this spiritual practice. Turn off your phone and create a peaceful space with candles. Incense and high energy crystals can also help to set the right mood.  
  3. Start with a few cleansing breaths to clear your mind.
  4. While holding the crystal, speak your intention (either out loud or in your mind.) Finish by saying ‘for the highest good.’
  5. Repeat this three times and then thank the crystal.

Step 5: Visualise the Outcome

Setting an intention is only the start of manifesting. To increase your chance of success, you should visualise the outcome every morning.

Make the visualisation vivid and detailed, as if you’ve already received the outcome. Then allow it to fade into the back of your mind as you get on with the day.

Visualising is an empowering technique. Aside from reinforcing your desires, visualisation makes it more likely for you to notice signposts towards the goal that are provided by the Universe.

For more information, read my guide to crystals for manifestation.

Crystals to Manifest Money, Prosperity and Abundance

  • Citrine is one of the most powerful stones for manifesting financial freedom. It’ll support your intention to attract financial success.
  • Pyrite is also known as fool’s gold, and has a money-attraction energy. It’s great in the workplace as it boosts motivation and helps to attract clients.
  • Green jade dissolves feelings that you don’t deserve to receive abundance. It’s important to clear this block as it prevents you from receiving your intention.

Crystals to Manifest Love

  • Rose quartz is my go-to crystal when manifesting all types of unconditional love.
  • Rhodochrosite’s heart-based energy heals blockages caused by past heartbreaks. It also promotes self-love and helps attract your soulmate.
  • Emerald is the stone of successful love. It’ll help when manifesting happiness in long-term relationships.

Crystals to Manifest Positivity, Joy and Happiness 

  • Sunstone is a light, energetic crystal that helps you to feel more positive.
  • Yellow jasper is a fabulous stone for happiness, as it replaces negative emotions with positive energy.
  • Peridot emits a warm energy that encourages feelings of self-worth.

Crystals to Manifest Creativity

  • Carnelian stimulates your creative talents and boosts your confidence.
  • Herkimer diamonds clear blockages to allow your true talents to manifest. This is a great stone to support your intention to grow.
  • Lapis Lazuli has a powerful manifestation energy that encourages creative inspiration.

What are Some Common Reasons for Manifesting Failing?

There are several reasons why manifestation can fail, but a lack of belief in your intention is the most common issue. Use crystals, such as rutilated quartz or black kyanite, to remove self-limiting beliefs before you start.

Impatience and frustration can also slow down the manifesting process. Trust that the Universe has heard you and don’t doubt the process for the quickest results.

Additionally, watch out for signposts or coincidences that may be guiding you in the right direction. These could be signals from the Universe, so missing them may slow the manifestation process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Crystals Necessary for Manifesting?

No, crystals aren’t necessary for manifesting. But their healing properties and ability to release energetic blockages can make the process quicker and more likely to succeed.

As healing stones are inexpensive and provide a range of potential benefits, I always recommend using the power of crystals when manifesting.

Why is Clear Quartz Such an Important Manifesting Crystal?

Clear quartz is known as the Master Healer and it supports the entire energetic body. It amplifies energy and aids in concentration. This makes it a useful gemstone when manifesting. 

What is a Manifestation Crystal?

Manifestation crystals are rare. They occur when a quartz crystal is completely encased within a larger quartz stone.

It’s said that these crystals have the purest vibration and carry the energy of manifestation, especially abundance. They’re also useful for attracting creative thinking and artistic talents.

Can a Crystal Grid Help to Manifest Abundance?

Crystal grids amplify the flow of healing energy. You can use different crystals which work together to focus their energies on your intention. 

  • Set a clear intention – Find a peaceful place and say out loud, in your head, or write your intention down to give it more power.
  • Select your grid – I like to use a spiral grid or flower of life for abundance and prosperity. 
  • Choose your selections of stones – Choose stones whose healing energies align with your intention. 
  • Place your stones purposefully – As you place each crystal on your grid, keep your focus on your intention.

You may find this resource helpful when setting your grid.

Note: If you’re using a spiral grid, start with the stones pointing outward to remove any negativity surrounding the situation. Then reverse the stones, so they point inwards, to draw abundance energy into your intention.


While crystals aren’t essential for manifesting, they can make the process more likely to succeed. This is because crystals remove energetic blockages that might be interfering with manifestation.

There are many ways to use crystals for manifestation, but the key is to choose stones that support your intention. It’s also important to cleanse and charge the crystal before you use it for manifesting.
