Incorporating Crystals Into Your Life
Since the earliest days of human society humans have carried and given significance to gemstones and crystals. Early peoples used crystals as talismans and protectors. Even if you’re new to the world of crystals, learning how to incorporate them into your everyday life can truly benefit you. With the challenging circumstances humanity has faced over the last few years, we are searching for a sense of control, groundedness, and peace. While we cannot control much of what we experience, we can control the tools and resources we use to navigate our world and our soul. Crystals can aid us as talismans, gentle reminders of the goals we set, and how we wish to show up in the world.
Crystals can shield us from negativity, help you connect to the best version of yourself, attract all types of love, support you along a healing journey, and add special energy to your home. Whether the energy of crystals is new to you, or channeling their energy is something you have done for years, we wanted to share a few of our favourite ways to use crystals in our everyday lives
ADDING CRYSTALS TO YOUR HOME
A great way to start working with crystals is to simply place them in the spaces you occupy. This method requires no specific ritual, so it is also perfect for busy people. Whether you would like to generate positivity, enjoy added protection, love, and balance, and create a space that’s tailored to your unique needs, there is a crystal for all of it. Since each crystal has its distinct properties, we’re breaking down which crystals to bring into your home, and the best spots to place them.
Amethyst: This crystal is a great stress reliever. It’s known for generating a relaxing and rejuvenating atmosphere by warding off negative energy. It can bring you clarity and balance. We suggest putting one of these in your home office or living room for easy access.
Pink opal: This crystal is a powerfully soothing stone. You can benefit greatly from putting this one in your bedroom since it supports love, self-love, and invites good karma into your life.
ADDING CRYSTALS TO YOUR SELF-CARE ROUTINE
Your self-care routine is unique to you, and you can incorporate crystals into your current routine to make it extra special. Taking care of your body and soul is essential, and crystals can do a lot for you if you know how to utilize their powers and energies. Adding crystals to your self-care routine can be as simple as dropping a crystal in your bath or starting a 1-minute meditation practice with a crystal during your morning coffee. These two crystals have healing properties and would be great additions to any self-care routine:
Pink amethyst: This crystal is known for soothing the heart chakra. It helps you heal from personal turmoil and traumatic events. The pink amethyst also supports the attraction of love once all your healing is completed. We suggest using this stone in a meditation practice to authentically explore your emotions.
Clear quartz: These are nicknamed the “Master Healers” because of their history of being able to heal all conditions and work alongside other crystals. This crystal can stimulate the immune system and restores all your energy systems. You could benefit from placing this crystal in your bath after a difficult day or during an illness, so your body can fully absorb its energy.
CARRYING CRYSTALS WITH YOU
Carrying your crystals with you throughout your day can help stabilize your energy, increase your luck, and keep your mind sharp. We suggest carrying your crystal in a place where it’s convenient for you to access it in times of need. Placing it in your purse or pocket allows you to have direct contact with your stone. Here are some we recommend:
Pyrite: This is a great stone to hold with you for protection and energy. It channels the energy of the Earth to shield us from negativity. Pyrite also helps us to excel in our professional and personal goals, which makes this a great stone to carry with you during your work day. This stone works its best with direct contact to your skin, which is why we suggest you hold it in meditation, or even place it in your bra or the waistband of your pants so it’s always touching your skin.
Citrine: This crystal draws its powers from the sun’s energy. It helps us manifest our dreams and gives us the confidence to get there. Carrying this stone will leave you feeling uplifted and happy. We recommend carrying this crystal inside your purse or work bag for easy access throughout a stressful day, or in your wallet or cash box to attract abundance.
