Crystals and stones provide a great way to add positive energy to your home. Each stone or crystal has its own special properties which can be utilized in a variety of ways — from deflecting negativity to encouraging good cheer.
Here are a few easy ways to use crystals and stones to improve your home’s energy…
To absorb and neutralize negativity
If there is anger or depression in your home and you’d like to dispel it, try placing several large hunks of jet around the house. This black stone will siphon the negative energies away from the home’s inhabitants. It can also be used to help ward off bad dreams.
To bring peace and harmony
To create an all-around peaceful, pleasant vibe that will help the people in your home feel good towards one another and get along well together, try tucking pieces of rose quartz and/or turquoise around your dwelling.
To increase cheerfulness
If you want to cultivate a more happy, cheerful, upbeat atmosphere, try placing citrine crystals or clear quartz crystals around your home to help lift the general vibe.
For healing and purifying
To help balance and restore your body’s energies while you sleep, place an arrangement of stones beneath your bed, choosing large specimens that don’t present a choking hazard. You might arrange the stones beneath the bed so that they correspond to your body’s chakras.
Place a hematite near the foot of your bed to correspond to the energy center located at your feet, and above that place a red or orange calcite to correspond with the chakra located at your pelvis. A yellow calcite comes next to correspond with the chakra located at the solar plexus, and a fluorite or green calcite is placed to correspond with the energy centered at the heart. Next, place a blue celestite to align with your throat chakra, and an amethyst to align with the third eye chakra located between your eyes. Finally, place a clear quartz to correspond with the crown chakra located at the very top of the head. This arrangement will help replenish and balance your body’s natural strength and vigor.
Cleaning your stones
Keep your crystals and stones clean. While typically your stones and crystals will retain their positive energy as long as they’re not exposed to bad energies, it’s a good idea to clean them every few months just in case, to clear them of any ickiness they may have picked up. You may want to cleanse them monthly on each full moon.
To purify and recharge your rocks, simply rub them with salt, rinse them with water, or place them beneath the sunlight or moonlight for a few hours. They’ll be energized and ready to refresh your home.
