Simple Uses for Crystals – Using My Crystals.


There are lots of fun, creative and simple uses for crystals, so why don’t we explore some of them:

Shield your property and home from unwanted negative influence.

Black Tourmaline or Schorl placed in the corners of your property or home will set up an energy grid to deflect or negate unwanted negativity. As well as attending to geopathic stress. And of course, this is just one of the many simple uses for crystals you can employ for your benefit.

Place them around your home!

Placing protective stones, such as Black Obsidian, Black Onyx, Hematite, or Tourmaline outside your entry doors can prevent negative energies from entering your home. Some suggest they may even keep burglars out.

Rose Quartz placed on a table or shelf in the living room, family room, or den, may fill your home with love and harmony.

Decorate with crystals representing seasonal colours.

Summer – bright yellows and reds represent heat and joy. You could also try mixing in bright hot pinks, strong piercing blues along with your yellows and reds.

Autumn – creamy orange through to bright orange represent warmth and comfort or use different shades of brown, especially the darker tones. Some dark blue stones wouldn’t go astray.

Winter – light calming blue. Dark winter colours work well, like dark purple, dark blue, dark, murky greens. Black stones will also be fine.

Spring – light airy greens, or pink, baby yellow and light fluffy purples. Bright, soft colours work well at bringing out the new growth of spring.

Place them in your car!

A Clear Quartz kept in your can help to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.

Placing a Tiger Eye in your car may protect you and your car from accidents. Putting it somewhere secure will prevent it from rolling around or getting lost. I find the ashtray a great place to keep my crystals. You could put it in a wire cage and attach it to a cord or chain and then hang it from the rearview mirror.

Have them at work!

Place a Clear Quartz cluster, a Lepidolite, or a purple Fluorite near your computer to help shield you from its electromagnetic field.

Keep a Smokey Quartz on your desk or around your workspace to protect yourself from the stress and frustration of co-workers and clients.

Carry Rose Quartz or Amethyst with you to help keep you calm and relaxed. These can be excellent touchstones when things get stressful, just hold your crystal in your hand or rub it with your fingers.

Take them with you on your next business trip or holiday!

Carry Mookaite in your luggage to impart a sense of safety. It will also allow you to explore the unknown without fear or anxiety.

Malachite is often carried to dispel vertigo and used by aviators for protection in flight.

Smokey Quartz taken on your trip enhances your survival instincts and present moment alertness, making it great for any travel excursion.

Black Tourmaline in your pocket helps to neutralise fear of travel, especially for those who get panicky in confined spaces.

Clear the air!

To disperse negative energy around your home or work area, decorate with black or dark crystals, such as Obsidian, Onyx and Tourmaline, or Smokey Quartz, or Hematite. When set out they work as environmental cleansers that purify the area and shield it from negative energies.

Selenite and Rock Salt crystals also do a similar job helping to keep your air and environment pure.

Fight pain!

Aventurine, Bloodstone, Lapis Lazuli, and Malachite are good pain relievers; Place them on the affected area of the body until the pain lessens.

Tape a Carnelian to your lower abdomen to help relieve the pain from menstrual cramps.

For a headache, place an Amethyst, Amber or Turquoise on your forehead. In the case of a migraine, a Blue Agate slice helps cut through the pain. Lapis Lazuli has a long history of relieving headaches.

Getting a good night’s sleep!

You can achieve a gentle night’s sleep by placing a Rose Quartz or an Amethyst under your pillow. Or by your bed, as this will also combat insomnia.

Place an Amethyst, Azurite or Sugilite under your pillow, or on your forehead to increase your dreams, while a Garnet under your pillow will help you to remember your dreams.

A Black Tourmaline or a Smokey Quartz under the bed will chase away any nightmares.


Gaining control of your emotions!

Aventurine, Blue Lace Agate, Chrysocolla, Moonstone and Rose Quartz are all crystals that help to balance your emotions. You can wear them as jewellery, keep them with you, or even take a bath with them.

Rose Quartz is especially helpful for emotional healing.

Aquamarine, Aventurine, Blue Lace Agate, Moonstone, Rhodonite, and Rose Quartz are calming stones. You can really calm yourself down by bathing with them, giving yourself a massage with them or lying down with them, try placing one over your heart.

To relieve anxiety, worry, fear and stress use one of the following: Aventurine, Black Tourmaline, Black Onyx, Chrysocolla, Citrine, Lapis, Rose Quartz, Sodalite, or Snowflake Obsidian. Use one as a “worry stone” that you keep with you, and then whenever you feel anxious, worried or stressed, you fondle it with your fingers. The results are often amazing.

To help keep anger under control, keep an Amethyst, Garnet, Sodalite, or Snowflake Obsidian, with you. Just like your worry stone, take it out and use it whenever you feel the need.

For depression, Amber, Citrine, or Smokey Quartz make excellent touchstones.

You can also wear any of these crystals as jewellery, bathe with them, or massage with them. They are best when polished or tumbled.
