Do Crystals Move By Themselves?

by Vonnie

Has anybody else noticed that their crystals move by themselves? A couple of weeks ago, I found myself in a crystal shop and felt compelled to have some. I keep them in a pouch and take them out for various reasons, but sometimes I find one out of the pouch, when I'm certain it shouldn't be.

Then, shortly afterward, I find I need that particular stone. At first I tried to come up with explanations for this; I wasn't closing the pouch properly, or whatever, but now, short of sleepwalking, I can't find any reasonable explanation for this to keep happening.

Has anybody else experienced something similar?

Not movement but...

I have never noticed my crystals move, but they do make their presence known to me when I need that specific stone in a store or at home. I notice when I am working on healing, certain healing stones look more attractive to me at that time, or the same with other issues I work on.

Your moving crystals.....
by: Jessica

Wow! It sounds like your guides are helping you with your crystals! I personally have not heard of them moving like that but I do have a few that are growing. So I know that they are alive!

When you said that you would find 1 outside of the bag and then later on finding out that is the stone that you need at the time.... there are no coincidences in life and I find it very interesting that the one you need is already out.

Either your stones have already connected with you and are choosing themselves for you or you have a guide that is helping. Either way it's a good thing for sure! I would make sure you keep those particular stones for as long as you feel it right... because they have seemed to pick you:)

I Can't Explain It
by: Anonymous

I have had crystals go missing before and I have been wooed by one at a store a few times. But less than 30 minutes ago I had a crystal move about 10 feet across my floor. I don't know why it did it!

I have never experienced or heard of any one who has experienced this before. Hopefully a person who can answer or explain this to me will see this post soon.

Yes They Move
by: Anonymous

I have several crystals in a circle and one in the middle, (egg crystal). During 12-21-12 I came home and found that my crystals were out of order, the middle one which I call the sun moved to a 90 degree angle and when we have the spring equinox it also move, when the planets are in alignment they move. lol

I thought I was the only one that experienced this action. I am so glad to hear others have experienced this also. But, I still don't understand how or why they move without me touching them. I Love My CRYSTALS!!!

Mine Move Randomly, And Often
by: Anonymous

My crystals, both the raw and the polished ones, move sometimes by just turning, other times they move feet or jump off a piece of furniture and hide underneath it!

If I sleep with them, I often awake with one or two either at my feet or under my arm or under me at the small of my back. It's always a surprise, sometimes I feel like I should be seatbelting them in place! :)

okay so im not crazy lol
by: SmokinTurtle

The other night I was on my tablet playing poker and I had two of my crystals hanging out with me sitting on the screen as I played. They're polished and cut in the shape of a turtle and bear.

They were pointing at me when I noticed the bear slowly shift and point towards the turtle. I couldn't believe it was happening and when it stopped moving I tried to recreate it by positioning the bear to were it originally was but nothing happened. This was the first time I saw something like this. I do feel strong vibes with my crystals I never would've thought they could move.

I inherited a wonderful section of Kansas land that Earth Crystals come to the surface. It's when the Earth or the Crystals vibrate in certain frequencies from time to time. Once in awhile I can even detect little trails through the soil as they have vibrated along. I can't help believing they were once in possession of ancient man and were stored in various caches on this land. Everything in the Universe has it's realm!

Last night was my first night sleeping holding stones and crystals. I was holding selenite on my right hand. Black obsidian on my left and I had tigers eye on my forehead. When I woke up, I was still in the same position I was when I fell asleep.

My hands were even still cupping the crystals. But the selenite was sitting on my chest, and the obsidian was high up under my left shoulder and tigers eye was under my neck. I really want to know why, so now I'm looking up other experiences.

And it seems really rare for them to move. Or at least no one really knows why.

Confused- one crystal moved
by: Anonymous

Yesterday night there was a big full moon, and I placed a couple of crystals on the window frame. In the morning the amethyst had moved closer to the window. What does this mean?

I blessed a large flat crystal..within a garden..used small uneven sticks for posts..with chicken wire..blessed crystal for garden. land . animals. people at household..apparently.. the crystal had moved on top of this impossible.. uneven stick.

I bought 3 crystals and put them on a pendant with a knot. I decided later to put them in a different order with darker one in center. A few days later found them back in original order.

With the knot it was impossible to do without untying and retying knot and no one could have done this. Was blown away.

Crystal Pyramid Moved
by: C. Diane

Hi, about ten days ago my husband place a crystal pyramid on our dresser in the bedroom. Tonight he heard a loud thump and found the pyramid lying on the bedroom floor.

He thought he may have knocked it to close to the edge on the dresser and it eventually fell. He proceeded to brush his teeth and when he came back into the bedroom the crystal pyramid was back on the floor beneath the dresser.

Now, we have a very heavy wool, thick placemat placed on the dresser to avoid scratches and there is no way that the crystal pyramid to slip or slide.

Any explanation or advise????

Moving crystals
by: Anonymous

My crystals seem to move whenever I'm not looking - sometimes while I'm sleeping and sometimes just when I'm out of the room. They can go a long way too... I keep them on a tray and I always arrange them in a certain way, none of them touching. When I return - or awaken - they are huddled close together or have taken to rolling to a different spot on the tray - in the case of my labradorite sphere or my tiger's eye....

Today my tektite and astrophylite needed to cuddle, as did all my pieces of calcite and on a separate area of the tray, there were my snowflake obsidian and turitella agate touching, and in a different spot than they were originally placed....

I don't know what's going on, but I find it interesting and amusing that they have their own personality like this... I'm a woman of science, but I'm rapidly embracing the energy of these beautiful "room-mates" on my tray....

Yes they do
by: Sheila

I came to this page to check if other people have noticed this. The most significant movement is when I sleep with them. They look as though deliberately placed somewhere. I regularly take a banded chevron amethyst (dense, dark, the size of my hand) and a heavy chunk of raw kyanite to bed, and often fall asleep holding one and placing the other beside me or under the pillow.

This morning I was more or less in the same position but the crystals were sitting side by side next to me. They also buzz with energy in the night..I feel it if I'm holding one but am often too sleepy to get up and take a look..also I feel it may stop if I try to scrutinize.

I experienced this just now
by: Anonymous

Ok so I was lying in my bed propped upright with pillows and I had my jade small jade crystal on my chest. I forgot it was there until it rolled up to my neck on its own!!!! Scared he crap out of me. But what does it mean???

my smoky quartz moved
by: Anonymous

I just looked this phenomenon up myself! Last night I put a group of crystals next to my bed on a nightstand. I had just bought a seer stone - rose quartz, a lepidolite, and a chrysocolla.

I had other crystals on the table as well, and I was trying to decide which crystals to hold in my hand as I slept. I chose the rose quartz, and a chrysophase. I was using a flashlight, to look at my crystals ( My husband was asleep already).

As I shone the light on my crystals, my smoky quartz started to pivot. I was in disbelief, and so I watched it for a while, and than in it moved again. Originally, I had bought this crystal because it moved toward my head by itself. It was hanging on a chain to be worn as a pendant, and moved toward me on it's own.

I have not seen it move again since last night. I am in awe of this discovery.

Your Not Alone
by: Bayz Finezt

I just bought my first polished clear crystal pendant. Also known as a pencil crystal, from India. Its energy was calling me. A friend told me to charge it in the Sun for at least 2 hours so I did.

As I stared at it the sun kept moving away from it so I would replace it back in the sun and as I moved my hand away I saw the crystal MOVE by itself, it turned itself to another side. I don't know why maybe it wanted its other angled charged by the sun.

I wear my crystal on my neck and now sometimes I notice or feel it jump up off my chest and back. Not sure what this means but it only gives me good vibes so it must be a good thing. I would love to connect with others who have had a similar experience.

Share your observation
by: Dayne

I felt it so strange. I don’t think that crystals could move by themselves. I could not understand that then how did you feel it is moving. Anyhow you once more just observe whether it will move or not. Remember to share your observation.

Stones moving across room
by: Anonymous

Hey wonder if you've ever experienced crystals moving across the room? I'm 99% sure I'm not going crazy. Two nights ago I chose 7 crystals from my collection and did a chakra clearing & activating meditation. Afterwards I lined all 7 up beside my bed.

When I woke the next morning and opened my eyes I saw my blue lace agate right beside me a few inches from the 7 lined up. I have all my crystals on the opposite end of the room and I remember at the time of choosing which to use, being drawn to use my blue lace agate but chose white howlite instead.

I have no logical explanation because I remember no other crystals on my bedside locker than the 7 and I fell asleep straight after lining them up and woke next morning to this! I have a clear memory before sleeping of exactly what I did! Tonight after putting some in a grid out of a test to see, two were in a different position!!The Amythest had moved forward & left and the same with my rhodochrosite. Should I be worried? Is it a bad thing?

New to Crystals
by: CAK

We have a strange thing going on with two crystals. We bought some color radiating crystals to put in our windows. They are basically 1 inch around, cut like diamonds, and have a "rainbow" color coating.

We have two clear windows in our bathroom so I strung each one with silver colored metallic thread and stuck one on each window 90 degrees apart with a suction cup. They are about 3 feet away from each other.

The last two nights, one of the crystals has "rattled" severely. I thought it may have fallen off but it was stuck tight. It happened again last night and I walked into the bathroom right after it did it and it was still shaking back and forth. The other crystal was not moving. This morning I rotated the crystal that had not "moved" to point away from the other to capture more sunlight and when I walked back into the bathroom 2 minutes later it had rotated back toward the other crystal.

I thought perhaps the string was the problem so I rotated it a full turn the other way to "hold" it against the window. I watched it sit still for over a minute, then all of a sudden it rotated toward the other crystal again. This kind of freaked us out since there is NO air flow in that area to explain why they moved. Any ideas as to what is going on? I am actually thinking of video taping it so I can show I am not making this stuff up.

Agate Ball Pendant
by: Anonymous

I have an agate ball pendant that I have not worn for months kept in a transparent container. One day while doing some area cleaning of my desk I felt the need to charge it on my clear quartz cluster crystal.

So I left it there during the day. About two nights after without checking on my agate pendant, I found it beside the cluster quartz, but not on the cluster quartz where I originally placed it to charge.

I was baffled, since neither my family would know about crystals and me, being a forgetful person, I didn't have any recollection of contact with the agate since leaving it to charge.

So its most likely the agate had moved itself off from the quartz cluster. Strange but adorable :)

My White Crystalline Quartz Anita
by: sandy

Anita gave me her name years ago when I was doing a healing: I was not given the name of the girl involved but I decided to connect through the caller and next day when I got Anita I was told the child was Anita.

Anita is always by a beautiful Mother Mary painting, a whole room across from my bed. I greet her and include her in my cleansings and meditations but normally do not touch her. I did feel my quartzes wanted to be close to me a few days ago. The only one I sleep with is a Lemurian one, either in my hand or under the pillow (great rest since).
I was doing my bed and found Anita under the covers! At first I thought it was Lemurian but they are quite different, Anita is totally smooth, Lemurian with indentations...I know I did not touch lovely companions are gathering around me helping me heal!

Also for months now I have containers with water and even pipes gurgle when I am close. Even the cat is surprised at the sound. At first I thought maybe some air trapped. No, it's when I am in the area.
All this only confirms I Am One with Nature!

Yes they move!
by: Nancy

Yes they do move. I had a package of crystals that I sent to my girlfriend to arrive before I did. She got the package and opened it and some crystals and an angel were missing. I told her that I wrapped them all really well so they would not break.

She opened up everything in the package and they were not there. I told her to go look in her office in her home. She went in and there was the angel on the shelf and three of the missing crystals sat on her desk waiting for her.

She tells me that she did not see them before and she did not place them there. Yes they move and do as they please to let us know that they are real and alive and waiting for us to just believe and know it is true!

I keep my chakra stones in a pouch and under my pillow. Yesterday morning I woke up and all the stones were scattered all over my bed

My selenite moved on its own
by: Anonymous

My selenite stone rolled over on my hand by itself this morning while I was meditating. I have been using it for meditation for a while and this is the first time that happened.

by: Anonymous

So I just purchased my first crystals, selenite, amethyst, rose quartz, and Crystal Quartz. I cleansed them and dedicated them. I laid down this evening with all 4. For some reason I laid them beside me.. . got ready to go to sleep finally and only 3 crystals were there.

I searched and searched... then it appeared on my nightstand where I originally allowed them to sit and charge. Scared the mess out of me it was the Rose Quartz! Never seen anything like this.

Crystals aligning on their own
by: Megan

Let me start off by saying I live alone lol. I meditate with amethyst, kyanite, carnelian agate, and rose quartz every morning. When I am done meditating, I leave my crystals in an unorganized pile on my meditation table.

I woke up this morning and my crystals were perfectly aligned, one on top of the other forming a vertical line. What could this mean?

They were in this order
Carnelian Agate
Rose Quartz


Appear and Disappearing Stones
by: Alice

I actually had a mother of pearl ring end up on my finger when I woke up in the morning. I owned the ring but it was stashed away under a lot of jewelry boxes. It happened when I lost my job and was a nervous wreck. As long as I kept the ring on I was calm.

I also had a pair of garnet earrings disappear after I moved. I searched high and low for over a year and could not find. When the mattress was replaced about 2 years later, lo and behold! There it was centered exactly under the bed.

Yes they move
by: Maria

First of all, thank you all for sharing your experiences -- made my jaw drop.

I have been going through a rough patch lately and have been very emotional. Several people had not been returning my calls and it was getting me down.

Last night I put my dish of crytals on my window sill and this morning my apache stone was across the room, on the floor, near the door. I just figured it was my cat but I remembered that one time a few months ago, the same stone was stuck to my leg.

I guess it does travel and it does make itself known to me when I need it most.

Yes they move!
by: Anonymous

I have recently purchased my first 3 crystals. I always keep them on my desk near my salt lamp. When I leave the room them come back a few hours later, I've begun to notice that they have moved to the windowsill, which the desk is right in front of.

At first I thought I had moved them subconsciously, but it didn't seem like a place I would put them. Last night I remember putting them back on my desk, and I woke up to find them back on the windowsill, and one even missing!

Jumped at us
by: Anonymous

My niece and I were walking around a crystal shop in Arizona. We both approached each other and clearly saw a green/purple fluorite donut shaped stone leap out of the bin about a foot off the ground and land between us at her feet. We told her she had to buy it and she did. I thought we were imagining things.

yes the answer they can slide along the table
by: Stephen

We all vibrate free flowing energy or static as paper can be statically charged to move to a balloon some crystals can interact with each other like magnets. I have a rose and amethyst geode that keep on drawing themselves to each other with a magnetic field near by for extra power.

As a crystal collects enough energy it becomes brighter well to me then it releases its self and starts again they all do it. Not totally sure about the science behind it all all I know it happens.

You always want to be sure you have the right crystals for you as ones that when you come close to it with your left hand you can feel the static and not pain. Its to do with your own vibration and how your cells in the blood stream communicate with the rest of your body.

by: Elizabeth

Wow! This is really amazing! I have small polished crystals at home. I have Rose Quartz, Smoky, Tigers eye, Lapis Lazuli, Obsidian, Clear Quartz and a few others, and I notice that when I put one of them in my pocket, they vibrate in my pocket I know that they vibrate in your hand but I never had felt that in my pants pocket.

I also notice that they pivot a little too when I put them in my room on top of my dresser.. It is amazing what these crystals do, I also have an Amethyst the raw one in my living room and it is so beautiful when it shines.

Rocks moving and Disappearing
by: Davey Samson

At first my stones were rearranging themselves then they started to go missing - also rings on the dresser would move in and out of case to salt dish.

The other day one had made a noise like hitting wood as I had put them in box to see what next? While I wash reading two days later on the bed next to me it appeared, so I put in salt after looking at it momentarily- next morning gone? Is there any literature on this?

Crystal quartz jumps
by: Anonymous

On my night stand I layed 4 Crystals around 9 a.m. As I returned to my room around 1 p.m. A 4" Crystal quartz flew off the table and the point was facing me. I picked it up and rubbed it. Just amazing that's not the first time I've experienced that. I woke up one morning and a crystal was in my hand. I give the small ones away as gifts in a satchel.

Kinda yes
by: Anonymous

I did the same to my crystals, I put them into a little pouch and tied it to my bed frame by my head and have noticed that it shakes slightly even if everything is still, it hasn't stops since I hanged it there.

Not me, but...
by: Cecilia

I've said elsewhere I was relatively new to crystals. It was my husband who brought me around to them. He started out a rock collector, got into archeology and, I imagine, one day will bring the house down with the monolith from Palmyra sticking out.

His favorite stone at one time was a snow obsidian, which he stuck into his jacket just as we left for Mykonos. Next time he looked, there was a hole in his pocket and his stone had gone. He was mildly upset, but what could he do?

We took the mandatory boat trip to the island of Delphos, came back for lunch, and took in the archeological museum - a chock-full day. And as we walked back to the hotel, there she was in the middle of the coastal road, waiting to be picked up.

He has called her "Naughty" ever after.

Apophylite Pyramid Disappeared
by: Anonymous

I have two stories and if anyone can shed some light on it i would appreciate it.

So I bought an Apophylite pyramid. Something had been bothering me in my house so I was trying to clear negative energy. I meditated with my chakra stones and my pyramid on my Genesis pattern mat. After about half an hour I started to see this massive teal-blue light in front of me (with my eyes closed). I peeked for a second and I had afterburn image of the blue still there.

I closed my eyes and quickly laid on my back, and put the pyramid on my forehead. I kept attempting whatever my idea of meditation is at this point and eventually I had this flush of calm and peace. I took the pyramid, placed it into a small bag with a "chinese good luck coin" from the store where I bought the pyramid. I put it in my pocket and right as I left my house I felt my pocket, it was there. I went outside drove across town, and it was not there anymore. I was wearing tight jeans, no holes in pockets. Wtf happened to it?

Second story. I attempted to ward off negative energy/spirits by placing 4 shiny smooth obsidian stones under each corner of my bed. I laid all 7 chakra stones vertically where I would be lying and left them for 3 months. I had extremely vivid/premonitions/epiphany type dreams. I checked the stones when I moved out and the obsidian was so cracked it was unrecognizable. Now I say cracked, not broken/shattered. They were solid but they had pressure cracks and looked rough as if they had been tumbled through a clothing dryer full of rough rocks.

Later my chakra stones/obsidian were stolen by a sneaky friend. Not sure why the obsidian was so cracked?

Broken angel crystal without touching it
by: Paula

I walked into a crystal shop one day with my children and husband. At the time I was looking at the shelf, at a clear quartz angel. Before I could pick it up the crystal fell and broke into pieces. No one believed me and we were made to buy it.

A similar experience
by: Anonymous

I usually sleep with two of my crystals and one night I went to bed as I usually do. The next morning I woke up to put them away but one of them was missing and I looked around and found it on a desk across the room.

Crystals moving
by: Giamarie

Since I now have crystals in my home I decided I didn't want them inside a pouch or box so I put them all in a glass vase with a white candle in the middle. I have noticed that the entire vase is not in the same place I put it in. The entire thing moves about an inch or two. I am an Empath. I also have some other gifts. I wanted to know if it is because of the energy in my home or it's me. Or could it have anything to do with how much I meditate. Does anyone have an answer for me? Love and Light...G

Shared energy
by: Victor

We,yes,my crystals move to our shared energy...they seem to move together in some energy force.. Even when I approach new crystals sometimes they do the same, quote beautiful if you ask me.

Rose Quartz, fell on it's own!
by: Anonymous

A friend of mine gave me a rose quartz which I have forever kept unmoved in between two sea shells which have mine and my boyfriends name on them for luck and love. Last night at about 2am the rose quartz fell to the ground and I'm wondering could this be a bad thing or simply a natural thing?

Yes! But why I'm not sure
by: EmiAmourous

Hello! I actually had mine move but I'm not sure it was for positive reasons though :( I actually had a moment where I was having an extremely uncomfortable conversation with my aunt about her life decisions (I read her tarot cards)

She wanted me to explain to her if there was any other way to be with this man she had feeling for but her cards were telling me it was not meant to be and I guess the tension she was carrying made my crystals fly off my wall. Literally.

To this day I can't explain why my crystals flew, I told her it was probably the wind but I think her and I didn't really think that was true and maybe it was an omen for her to believe her fate with that man. Hopefully the next time my crystals move its for more positive vibrations. But yes I do think its possible for them to move.

I am glad I am not crazy
by: Anonymous

I was meditating tonight and my lapis lazuil and rose quartz both moved while chanting of the Lapis Lazuli activates the psychic centers at the Third Eye, and balances the energies of the Throat Chakra and the Rose Quartz the Heart Chakra. I do not know actually what this means but it was most diffidently noticeable in a big way.

Rose Quartz
by: Michele in WA

I had been doing a lot of heart chakra work because my heart chakra was severely blocked. I bought two rose quartz stones and placed them under my pillow. when I awoke one was under my body above my heart and one was below my heart. This happened several nights until my heart chakra was cleared and now they stay under my pillow.

I believe they are drawn to the part of the body that needs assistance from their energy. Since when ever my heart is hurting they will move to above and below my heart under my body. if my heart is good they don't move. Very interesting.

Forming patters
by: SLD

I have crystals and stones on my dresser and when I have a serious problem or uncertainty they move into a pattern. I have found some very insightful messages in the patterns thru the stone meanings and numerology.

I, like most of you thought I was crazy but it has happened 5 times. I do practice Wicca and meditation. My household of 5 adults all believe in the power of energies both good and bad. I have pictures to document the patterns.

The first time it happened I told my son by phone that my stone moved into a pattern and his first words were "it wasn't three straight lines was it?" It was. And he had a very vivid dream of an animal chasing him with three straight lines on it's side. It is the craziest manifestation I have ever experienced.

I believe it is a guardian spirit. I am a reasonable person and have eliminated any natural causes. These patterns are too perfect to be accidental.

My modavite moved
by: Anonymous

I left two of my stones under the moonshine, one of them is a Moldavite. I left them on top of a bench so they wouldn't get lost, the next morning the moldavite was on the floor. The stone that was on the bench is almost round and the Modavite is more like a flat triangle so I thought that was weird because if the wind moved them, the round should have moved.

I left them out again the next day for the super moon and I placed them in another location so the wind wouldn't move them and no one could touch them. Same thing. The moldavite was about 2 to 3 feet away from where I left them and the round one was still in the original place. I hope my moldavite is not trying to leave me because it was very expensive :)
