6 Ways to Use Crystals Daily
The following are some ways you can use crystals in your everyday life, other than just as beautiful decorations. Crystals can be used by wearing them, laying them on yourself, holding them, sitting them in a space near you, or setting them up in a crystal grid. You can find videos on setting up a crystal grid on Youtube.com. Clear quartz can be paired with any of the crystals in this article to boost their energies. The crystals here are just a small sampling of what is out there. I encourage you to do your own research to find other crystals that speak to you.
1.Harmony in the home. We all want a happy home. Cleansing your home is just one step in creating the atmosphere your family will want to live in. Further enhance the energies of your home by placing around any combination of these crystals. Amethyst (calming), Carnelian (clears negative emotions and energies), Lapis Lazuli (relationships), Moss Agate (brings balance to those with many obligations, helps with stress), Rose Quartz (the love stone), Smoky Quartz (relieves anger and depression).
2.Cooking. Placing a piece of clear quartz on your stove is a folk practice that is said to enhance the flavors of all of your cooking. I swear by this.
3.Writing. Whether it’s your own blog or a letter to your child’s teacher, keeping some crystals on you or in your writing space can help you better articulate what you want to express. Improve your writing by keeping around the following stones. Bloodstone (creativity), Blue Goldstone (communication), Citrine (mental focus), Fluorite (increases concentration), Lapis Lazuli (creative expression), Moonstone (creativity), Sodalite (communication), Turquoise (writing).
4.Stress. We all have stress in our lives and we could all use a little less. If you’ve just the normal amount try placing some of these crystals on a bedside stand to help you unwind at night. A little more stress? Try wearing or carrying some of these stones with you. Amethyst (stress reduction), Fluorite (stress reduction), Moonstone (soothes emotions, composure), Moss Agate (stress reduction), Smoky Quartz (relaxation).
5.Meditation. Science has proven beyond the shadow of a doubt how beneficial it is to meditate. Need some help getting started or just want a boost to your meditative practice? Try some of these stones. Either hold them while you meditate or place them about your meditation area. Aragonite (meditation), Bloodstone (emotional centering), Blue Goldstone (meditation), Fluorite (meditation), Smoky Quartz (meditation).
6.Tarot reading. I keep a piece of smoky quartz with my deck to keep it cleansed. When I read I keep a piece of amethyst near me to increase my psychic abilities. I also keep a piece of selenite near me. Selenite is good for communicating with spirit guides and spirits because it has a very high vibrational rate that allows it to be a link between this world and the spirit world.
