Crystals can be used in many ways, but generally they provide spiritual and emotional healing, increased energy and positivity, and ease the stresses of daily life. On top of this, they’re a trendy fashion statement and can enhance your style.
Read on for 5 Ways to Use Crystals in Your Everyday Life.
Wear them in jewellery
One of the most effective ways to make use of a crystal’s powerful abilities is to simply wear one in an item of jewellery. They can be found in bracelets, necklaces, earrings and everything in between. Not only do these look stunning, but they remain in your presence all day. This is greatly beneficial to you because the crystal can work within your aura for as long as you wear it. If you never take it off, then the effect is constant.
This works particularly well if you frequent a toxic environment such as a negative workplace, or if you suffer from anxiety. A soothing Hematite stone, for instance, is a powerful protector. Wearing Hematite jewellery will prevent negative energy from entering your aura, allowing you to get on with your day without being brought down by other people’s low energy. It stimulates concentration, meaning you can wear it to work and maintain a strong degree of focus.
If you’re more of a worrier, then Howlite may be a better stone for you. It alleviates stress and calms the mind, allowing you to relax more easily.
The great thing about jewellery is that you don’t have to limit yourself to just one crystal. There are hundreds of different combinations you can make and they all help with unique problems.
Keep one under your pillow
Placing the right crystal under your pillow can work wonders in helping you have a restful night. They can assist with insomnia or nightmares and you can even embed a dreamcatcher with crystals to increase its effects!
Purple Amethysts are brilliant stones for encouraging pleasant dreams. Place one under the mattress or pillow to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep. You can also hold an Amethyst to the centre of your forehead and rub it gently counter-clockwise before bed. This can stimulate the third eye chakra which improves the chances of a tranquil and deep night’s sleep.
Clear Quartz has been known to clear the negative thoughts of the day, making it a great stone to have by your bed. It is also a good stone for absorbing nightmares.
Using crystals to help with sleep problems gives you more energy throughout the day, as well as ensuring you wake revitalised and full of vigour.
Place near technology
We all know that technological devices such as phones and laptops emit radiation. This can become unhealthy when the body is subject to too much of it on a regular basis. Crystals around your laptop or computer absorb these rays and keep you feeling energised, even while staring at screens.
Orgonite is a great crystal to consider as it protects your body against the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). This means that you can have enhanced concentration and reduced stress while working on your computer, watching TV, or browsing on your phone.
Shungite has also been known to neutralise the negative effects of EMFs and can help restore strained vision to its natural state. It doesn’t interfere with the signal, so you can leave a Shungite stone by your television without a detrimental impact.
Place these crystals anywhere that you keep electronic devices to have the best result.
Hold during meditation
Calming the mind, relaxing the body, and soothing the soul, crystals have been used for millennia to help achieve a more profound level of consciousness. The right crystal can ease you into a deeper reflective state, allowing the advantages of meditation to flow more easily.
A brilliant crystal to hold during meditation is Quartz. This is one of the strongest energy-amplifying stones on the planet. It creates a serene and peaceful environment that lifts your mood and dispels negative thinking. Hold it in your hands, close your eyes and clear your mind. Allow your body to sink and witness the immense power of crystals!
If you want to create your own spa treatment, take crystals into the bath with you. Let them soak. Fluorite is particularly useful as it relieves you of tension and stress. In the water, your body becomes a sponge to the crystal’s positive energy, enabling you to absorb more of the benefits.
You can also place a soothing stone, such as Celestite, on your yoga mat to assist with the practice. It connects with the chakras, purifies your aura, and removes any blockages. It creates a sense of safety and serenity that empowers you to release any suppressed emotions.
Decorate your home
What better way to show off your beautiful crystals than to place them around your home? Crystals can make a great showpiece in your living area, and can have a dramatic and positive effect on your well-being. Not to mention, they look amazing and can supplement a homely vibe, or spice up old decor.
Placed in the entrance, Hematite dissolves any malicious energy coming into your home. It’s a protective stone and can be used to ward off negativity, ensuring your house is safe and full of warmth.
If you have a written list of goals (which we suggest you do in the present tense), then place a crystal, such as Tiger’s Eye, on top of the paper. This will accelerate the manifestation process. It acts as a battery, storing the intentions and turbo-charging them. You can place the list on the mantelpiece or somewhere prominent within your home. This will allow you to reaffirm your ambitions regularly, also enabling the crystal to cleanse the room and purify the energy inside.
Crystals can be used in more complex ways too, such as in healing grids or elixirs. However, for people new to the power of crystals, this list should set you on the right track!
