Crystals emit frequencies that aid various aspects of our lives
The word crystal comes from the Greek word krystallos, meaning frozen light. Crystals have been used over the centuries for myriad purposes — from healing to protection to decoration.
Crystals are normally used as jewellery, for emotional healing, to generate energy, to activate a space and to heal ones chakras. Crystals are particularly good at helping us adapt to changes in energy vibes created by emotional and psychological imbalances in our environment or even the ones we create for ourselves.
Natural crystals grown from earth are powerful and have strong earth energy and are potent energisers of the earth element. The energy emanating out of crystals is clear and integrates with human aura, and this is their its contribution to feng shui. Crystals are used in feng shui in a variety of ways, all with one single goal — to create good feng shui energy in your home.
They provide positive energy while keeping away negative energies, which could cause disease and suffering. They are responsible for peace, protection, economic stability and happiness.
In feng shui, crystals are widely used for a specific energy, or the vibrations they bring to your home or office. For example, the rose quartz crystal is used to attract love and romance, as well as heal a broken heart.
Tips for feng shui use of crystals:
Two rose quartz hearts are often placed in the southwest feng shui area of the home to promote happy energies in a love relationship. Often a full bowl of rose quartz crystals is placed in the bedroom or bathroom as a feng shui love cure.
Tumbled hematite is often used in feng shui for its grounding and centering energy, as well as for its protective qualities.
If your child has trouble focusing/ concentrating and tends to easily get overexcited, several pieces of hematite will help with a grounding quality of energy. You can place it either in your child’s room, or in the west feng shui area of your home.
Another feng shui use of hematite is by the front door to benefit from its protective qualities. You can place several tumbled hematites either outside or inside your front door in a visually pleasing way.
The career area is associated with black, but aquamarine or water-coloured crystals would be nice too, as the element of career is water.
The helpful-people area could be enhanced by placing a smoky quartz crystal in that area.
The wealth area is purple, so a nice crystal could be amethyst.
The health area in the center benefits from a gold citrine crystal.
Some of the most powerful crystals are diamonds and jade. These crystals can be worn on the body as well. Jade crystals come in many colours and are considered very auspicious. Use crystals often in feng shui adjustments and enhancements.
Crystals should be cleansed regularly, as well as treated in a respectful and loving manner.
When purchasing crystals for feng shui purposes, be sure to ask if the crystals have not been radiated or coloured.
Today, with the advancement of technology, ruby crystals, natural and manmade, are used in lasers for microscopic surgery. Quartz crystals are used in ultrasound devices, watches, as well as memory chips in computers.
Enhance your home’s energies with natural crystals. After all, you and your family will be the ones to benefit from their healing energies.
