Crystals and gemstones are tools for focusing your thoughts on your intentions and goals. Use crystals alongside two other key tools: visualization and imagination. Intentions and positive thoughts are the products of both. Energetically match up your intentions and thoughts with crystal and gemstone allies to help you focus on major life concerns and bring into your life what you desire. Crystal intentions amplify the beneficial effects of the law of attraction.
There are six main areas that are most important to most people. These are:
• Friendship, Love, Relationships, and Romance
• Health and Well-Being• Money, Creativity, and Motivation

For each of these areas of life, there are a number of crystals to choose from to assist you with your intentions. There are just a couple listed here. Use your intuition when choosing your crystals.
