Our homes are a reflection of ourselves, with everything personalized and exactly the way we want it. How it looks, how it’s designed, and more importantly, how it feels is all in the power of our hands. When you think about your home, you think about how it makes you feel; if your home is clean but still feels cluttered and dark, or even a bit bland, you may need something to spice it up. Enter the incorporation of crystal energy into your home, a trend that is becoming more recognized and popular today by designers and people alike.
The beauty of incorporating crystals into your home isn’t just their natural elegance, but the fact that their energy tunes into your personal needs to help you achieve your goals and restore balance back into your everyday life. Crystals are the perfect tool to bring positive energy into your living space. Whether it’s filling your bedroom with relaxation and love, bringing creative vibes into your kitchen, or promoting wealth, concentration, and ideas in your work space, there is a crystal to help you achieve the energy you desire. However, using the right crystals for your space is very important, and you want to make sure you assign your crystal to the right task in the space it’s given.
For starters, your bedroom is a sacred space and you want it to give off the right energy. The perfect crystals to incorporate into this area are Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Selenite. Rose Quartz promotes unconditional love in relationships along with soothing unwanted tension, while also encouraging forgiveness and compassion. Amethyst will help you relax, destress, and unwind after a long day, and will also help with nightmares and insomnia. Selenite is a powerful crystal that promotes a good night’s rest along with peaceful dreams, and it is also a good choice to place in children’s rooms.
When you are hard at work all day in your office, constantly staring at your computer screen, tablet and phone, it can take a toll on your body. By placing a Shungite crystal on your desk, it can help to neutralize those harsh electromagnetic radiation rays that come from your electronics. Pyrite crystals are essential for your office space as well, as they promote confidence, wealth, risk taking, and keep you from procrastinating. You will thank these crystals when your long hours finally pay off and your business is booming.
Your living room should be a place of laughter, conversation and relaxation. By placing an Amethyst cluster in your living space, you will feel the stress and negativity flee from the room. It will also keep your energy feeling grounded and connected to the positive vibes that this crystal gives off. Another key crystal is Black Tourmaline, as it is very protective and will shield off any negative energy that may try to enter your home. Its best placed by your front and back doors, as well as your entry way.
Simply placing crystals in your home isn’t the only way to do it. There are many different ways to incorporate crystals into your living spaces. For example, using crystal bookends and candle holders give off a classy and sleek look. And using them as coasters, serving trays, or knobs to furniture are other unique ways to jazz up your space.
Just like how easy it is to change the design of your home, the energy within can be changed as well. By incorporating crystals into your home, you will experience an energy shift like no other.
