4 Crystals To Help Manifest Clarity and Focus
by Tanisha Carter
As people are breaking away from organized (sometimes less tolerant) religion, spirituality is taking its place! People are flocking to their local apothecary to stock up on books, oils, and incense to balance chakras, stay positive, and manifest their wildest dreams! At the crux of it, all are stones, affectionately known as crystals.
On a physical level, crystals are just fossilized resin that has been embedded in the Earth for thousands of years. On a spiritual level, crystals act as conduits for healing and manifesting. Believed to hold healing energy, crystals have been used to aid in everything from childbirth to transitioning to the afterlife (Have you heard of a Death Doula?)
Holding crystals near or placing them on your body is thought to promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Crystals supposedly do this by positively interacting with your body’s energy field known as chakra. While some crystals are said to alleviate stress, others purportedly improve focus, creativity, and organization making them the best tool to manifest your deepest desires.
Manifesting wealth, health and dreams takes patience, focus, and clarity and below are a few crystals that are believed to bring this level of concentration into your life while assisting in manifesting big!
Known as the perfect “everything” stone, once you have set your intentions (Try: “My path is clear, my mind is focused”) it will be filled with the energy you wish to carry throughout the day. This stone encourages you to repeat your set intention (just having it with you will do the trick) therefore clearing anything that may be hindering you as well as amplifying the energy you put into it! Because this stone’s amplifying and attracting energy is so strong it is suggested to keep a grounding/calming stone with you as those feelings can become overwhelming for some.

Although this is not recognized as a focus/clarity stone, its protection properties help to ward off negativity. So much so that it is believed to create a strong energetic barrier around the carrier that can even block possible negative phone calls and emails. By warding off these types of entities this stone keeps your surroundings clear enough to make strong positive decisions and even aids in creativity.
This is the best stone for mental focus/clarity. As a balancing and grounding stone ,it enhances your concentration and gives structure to your chaotic thoughts. So much so that you are able to make clear and precise decisions. Even the shape of Fluorite aids in sharping your focus. If your Fluorite comes in an obelisk or pyramid shape, this helps to create “laser-like’ concentration. Great for manifesting clearly and quickly!
“Known as the "student's stone it can improve organization, memory, and attention” states Corinne Kenner, author of Crystals for Beginners: A Guide to Collecting & Using Stones & Crystals. To accompany those effects this stone also boosts confidence and alleviates stress.
Extensive testing has taken place to prove the healing theory and although science cannot confirm its success, scientists like Christopher French, a professor of psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London believes that the “…. effects reported were a result of the power of suggestion, not the power of the crystals.”
Although the scientific hypothesis of whether crystals heal fell short, it is scientifically proven that crystals hold within them over 5,000 years of intentions. I’d like to believe that these thousands of years of intentions allow positive joyous loving manifesting energy to flow into the body as negative, disease-causing energy flows out.
