I adore crystals and stones and have way too many of them in my home. Most of them seem to be in constant movement, with a few major crystals occupying the same spot for a longer time.
Being sensitive to energy, I often move them around, or neatly pack some crystals away as needed. If I’ll have all my feng shui crystals out, this will create a very loud energy!
My admiration for crystals started early in life and it grew stronger once I started working as a feng shui consultant. Because feng shui is all about good energy – how to create and maintain it in any given space – crystals come to the rescue with a myriad of abilities to do just that.
Your feng shui crystals will clear the energy, raise it, protect your home from negative vibrations, create a specific quality of energy, and so much more.
But first, what exactly is the meaning of “feng shui crystals”? Is it about a few specific crystals or is it more about the specific use of any crystal or stone for feng shui purposes?
The term “feng shui crystals” is often used to denote specific crystals with a long history of use in traditional feng shui cures. For example, the jade stone is one of the best examples of popular feng shui crystals.
However, just because jade was very popular in China (because it was very accessible); this does not necessarily make it one of the best feng shui crystals.
No crystal is really the best; it all depends on what you want to use it for.
The truth is, almost any crystal or stone can be used to create and maintain good feng shui energy. All crystals come from the womb of planet Earth and have awesome healing energy.
So, the most accurate meaning of the term “feng shui crystals” is an abbreviation for the “feng shui use of crystals and stones”.
OK, now let’s finally look into the fascinating world of feng shui crystals!
I will share with you 3 tips on how to find the best crystals for your space, as well as the feng shui use of 8 most popular feng shui crystals.
You might not believe it, but crystals run anywhere from a couple dollars for a tumbled stone to thousands, if not tens of thousands for rare specimens, especially of a big size.
I strongly suggest you decide on an initial budget and stick to it, because I know way to well how easy it is to spend a lot just because you fell in love with a crystal or stone!
Buying crystals can be a very impulsive purchase, especially if you are sensitive/can read energy. Believe me I rarely buy on impulse; no shoes, dresses, makeup or whatever else is there can lure me in to buy right away, but crystals… that is a totally different story.
So I’ve learned to exercise self-restraint when I go crystal shopping as I can easily get into the “money does not matter” zone while being in the feng shui crystals energy.
My best advice is have a budget and stick to it, be it $10 or $10,000.
What quality of energy are you looking for, what do you need?
Do you want a more energizing quality of energy or a more calming and balancing one?
Do you need a fiery, creative energy or maybe the cooling, cleansing water energy is what you long for?
What feeling (or energy) do you want this crystal to bring to your home or office, as well as maintain and help you cultivate?
What color do you prefer or what colors work best for your space?
As with any purchase, it is always best to do your research, as well as be as clear as possible.
For example, if you want soft, loving energy, as well as specific energy to attract and maintain the energy of romantic love & marriage, then rose quartz is one of your best choices (among reasonably priced crystals).
On the other hand, if you need sparkling, creative, fresh energy in your office, then a mid-size clear quartz cluster can do the job, especially if you activate it with fiery mid-day solar energy.
Do you have a definite placement in mind for your crystal?
Is it your main entry that is asking for a crystal cluster?
Maybe your bedroom can benefit from tumbled rose quartz stones?
Or, is there just enough space for a specific size geode on your desk?
Be realistic with your options, as buying a big beautiful crystal and then not having the space to display it can be quite sad. Or, displaying it in a way that diminishes/limits its energy.
So be sure to do a quick check up of your space to define the potential spots for the crystal(s) you want to buy. It can also be a good idea to have the exact measurements of the space where you want the crystal to fit.
Of course, if you are looking to buy small tumbled feng shui crystals, then this is not a concern, as they can easily fit into your pocket, purse or any drawer!
Next, let’s look at the properties and use of 8 most popular feng shui crystals; and, most importantly, how their energy can benefit you and your home!
