Crystals That Will Help You Manifest The Life You Want

If you've spent any amount of time online in the past few years, you've probably noticed the rise in popularity surrounding spirituality, mysticism, and the occult. For some, it seems silly to believe that choosing the right crystal can help you manifest the life of your dreams. However, to others, these gorgeous and functional gems are the key to utilizing the Law of Attraction and building the life of their dreams. "When you actively use crystals, the practice, the energy, and your intentions combine to create the life you want," crystal expert and author Robyn Vie Carpenter-Brisco tells Bustle.

It sounds pretty cool; however, you can't just go to your local metaphysical shop and buy whatever catches your eye. Every crystal type has a different purpose, so doing your research ahead of time about the properties and spiritual meanings of a crystal before you add it to your collection is key. "Crystals are structured in such a way that they respond to the inputs of all different energies around them, so they oscillate, emitting specific vibratory frequencies," certified shamanic energy medicine practitioner Colleen McCann shared with Goop. Choosing the right crystal for you really depends on what you're looking to attract into your life.

So, whether you're looking to attract love and romance into your life or you're hoping to score a higher-paying position, these are the best crystals for manifesting your dreams.

Black obsidian

Obsidian isn't technically a crystal; it's actually a volcanic glass born from the raw energy of an eruption, but it's often classified with crystals — and thought of as one in the minds of many. There are many types of obsidian; however, black obsidian is the most popular variation. Black obsidian is hallmarked by its dark color and is a powerful tool if you're looking to release some of the darker or heavier energy from your energy field. According to Energy Muse, this volcanic glass is reflective, which makes you, in turn, reflective.

And that's not all. According to Cosmic Cuts, black obsidian is a powerful tool that can be used to dive into shadow work as well. Black obsidian is often used to reflect your most hidden fears and desires back to you, including the hidden parts of yourself that may have gone unacknowledged. By showing you the reflection of yourself that lurks below the surface, black obsidian can give you more clarity around aspects that you may need to focus on or release in order to allow abundance to flow into your life. So, if you've been feeling blocked off or stalled out in your life recently, black obsidian might be the perfect thing to add to your practice.

Rose quartz

You may have heard that rose quartz crystals and high vibrations can help in manifesting your perfect match. However, these stunning pink stones are actually an amazing tool for achieving fulfillment in your personal and professional life as well. Rose quartz is one of the most popular crystals in the manifestation space for good reason. It carries the ideal energy for increasing and attracting love, beauty, health, good fortune, and joy. "Rose quartz can be used for welcoming new romance or easing existing relationship trouble: Its soothing powers encourage us to open our hearts, embrace passion, and celebrate intimacy," spiritualist Paul Mastor shares with Allure.

When used in manifestation rituals, rose quartz can help you connect more deeply with universal energy and attract more positive experiences into your life. It's best to wear your rose quartz close to your heart as it can boost your self-image, raise your inner vibration, and attract others to your energy. This stone may also help those who are shy or feeling insecure release those feelings of self-doubt, providing them instead with courage and confidence when needed. "Rose quartz will encourage the true meaning of love to reveal itself — this can be love within yourself, someone new, or someone that is already in your life," spiritualist and writer Olivia Marcus tells StyleCaster.


If life has your head spinning and you're looking to take back your power, it might be best to choose a crystal that invites perspective into your life. While it's true that much of manifestation is about taking action, it's equally important to rest and recharge. And with those periods of rest comes clarity and confidence. That's why citrine is a popular crystal among energy workers. "Citrine helps balance your perfectionist inclination by boosting confidence. It is also believed that this stone activates the solar plexus, which enables the user to tap into their inner courage in all aspects of life while staying grounded," crystal expert Krishika Bhatia tells Elle India.

And that's not all: this golden beauty is also known for its ability to attract abundance, prosperity, and positivity into the life of whoever wears it. "As one of the most powerful stones for manifestation, it will help you bring your financial goals to life. Citrine is used to enhance confidence, gusto, willpower, luck, and abundance," energy healer Heather Askinosie tells MindBodyGreen. So, if you're looking to refocus your goals and start working steadily toward that dream job, this might be just the crystal for you.


Of all the crystals on this list, selenite is one of the most unique and beautiful. This multi-faceted crystal does much more than just invite favorable energy into your space; it's also known for its healing and cleansing ability. In fact, the positive aura of selenite is so powerful that energy workers often use selenite to cleanse other crystals and remove stale energy. And it's ideal to keep your space safe and free from any unwanted negative influences. "Selenite is what's known as a 'love and light' crystal that promotes tranquility. It's also good for that calmness and stillness that's needed in order to reach higher states of meditation and that overall connection and enlightenment," astrologer Anjie Best explains to Nylon

Adding selenite to your bag of manifestation is also a great way to clear away anything that blocks you from reaching your full potential. This means it's ideal for anyone who feels stuck in their current situation and is looking to kick things into gear. "Selenite is good for keeping things moving. It really allows that space for your true wealth to come flooding in," spiritualist and author Yulia Van Doren tells Girlboss. "You can use it to clear energies off other crystals, off yourself, out of your home, off everything."


Moldavite is widely known as the stone of transformation because those who wear or carry it often experience major life changes. That's probably because this popular gemstone has origins that stretch far beyond Earth's atmosphere and into the cosmos. According to Variance, this crystal is believed to have first appeared "roughly 15 million years ago" as the result of an asteroid making contact with the planet. However, it wasn't the asteroid that brought the crystal; it formed from "intense heat and impact." Because of this, people often think of this crystal as being otherworldly, as representing space.

Along with its special cosmic connection and tendency to shake things up, moldavite's energy also brings significant healing properties to those who wear it. It's mostly associated with the heart chakra — the center of love, connection, and compassion. However, this popular gemstone isn't for the faint of heart. Moldavite can aid in spiritual transformation but is so powerful that it can also affect other parts of your life in the process (via Healing Crystals for You). The energy it manifests fundamentally depends on how you channel it, so it will go rogue if you don't give it any direction or purpose. So, before you go experimenting with moldavite, you'll want to sit down and write down the things in your life that you're ready to change.
