How Can Crystals Help With Test-Taking?

Taking tests does not come easy for all of us. The truth is, for some of us, it stresses us out so bad that we’re nervous and can’t fully concentrate. Or we’re so anxious that it’s difficult to study well.

Or, we may not have good study habits and find that test-taking just isn’t a strength we possess.

For generations, crystals have been used by many people to help manifest what they want in their lives. There are different ways you can use crystals. Here are some of them:

  • Close your eyes and meditate with a crystal in your hand.
  • Carry a crystal around with you throughout the day in your pocket or purse.
  • Wear a crystal close to a place on your body that needs healing.
  • Keep a crystal on your yoga mat during yoga.
  • Decorate a room with a cluster of crystals or a large one to shift the energy in that space.
  • Incorporate crystals into your self-care routine, like in your bath.

Now that you’ve got the gist of how people have used crystals to help manifest what they want in life, you just need to know the best crystals to help you do that.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to study hard to pass your exams. But the right crystals may help you to position yourself mentally to study better and may even help you to remember most of what you studied. Here are some ways to use crystals for test-taking:

Put Them on Your Study Desk

Place the crystals on your desk! Just having them there will help to bring the energy you need for studying, which is to be focused.

The energies and vibrations of the crystals are strong enough to keep you focused throughout your study time. And when you’re really into it, you can just pick them up and hold them in your hand.

They’re supporting you as you need them to.

Meditate With Them

Meditation is a great way to get focused. Use the crystals when you meditate. That’s a great way to connect your energy with the vibrations from the crystals.

Doing this for about ten minutes before studying should greatly increase your chances of not only having a good study session but acing the test. When meditating, just hold the crystals in your hands and allow your meditation regiment to do the rest.

Wear Them as Jewelry

Crystals make great accessories and can be awesome fashion statements. But they can also keep you focused and grounded on the task at hand when you’re wearing them.

You can wear them as necklaces or bracelets, and when you do this, they’re always close to you. You’ll never have a study session without them again.

They’re always on you and you’re always soaking up their energy.

Use Them With Affirmations

Apply your affirmations with your crystal of choice. As you’re doing the affirmations, talk to the crystal and ask for help.
