Mother Nature’s Art
More and more people are adding crystals to their living space. All crystals connect us with the Earth and nature. So, it is no surprise to me that people without any belief in anything metaphysical are drawn to them and get pleasure from being around them.
I hear so often from people that just looking at crystals makes them feel relaxed, calm and at ease. Crystals and minerals are like Mother Nature’s art.
Creating Sacred Space
Those of you that believe in or are sensitive to the spiritual properties of crystals have even more reasons to have crystals in your home. It is not uncommon for people who have lots of crystals around to have visitors comment on how their home has such a nice energy.
Certain crystals can be placed in your home to alter the energy by cleansing negativity, bringing in positive energy and protecting you from bad vibes.
Placing Crystals in Your Home
This is related to the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui, though it is not traditional and a more modern take on it. Many people will place crystals intuitively, others focus on certain key areas. You can use a combination of both methods if you want.
I will give you some general suggestions for crystal forms and placement below. Like moving furniture or adding something new to your home, you may have to move it around till it looks and feels right.
You can always test things out, try it for a few days or a week and see how you feel.
What About the Size of the Crystal?
To gain the most from crystals for your home, generally larger crystals are prefered. This is because you’re no longer working with just your aura, you’re changing the energy field of an entire room or your house.
Try to look for display crystals where possible. You don’t have to spend a fortune on giant crystals or museum quality specimens, just use common sense with the space you have and your eye
If it looks lost on your coffee table, perhaps something bigger will be more impactful and effective? The crystal may work better in a smaller room or area. It is all about proportions and every space is different.
TIP: As a substitute, you could use a bowl or dish of smaller crystals to create more mass. Also, a group of three medium-sized crystal points will be similar in energy to a large standing crystal point for example.
