OK. YES. WE GET IT. SOME PEOPLE THINK CRYSTALS ARE STUPID AND FAKE NEWS AND WHATEVER.
If that is you, goodbye now from this story.
Actually, no. Stick around, learn a thing or two. Bc I personally am v v into crystals and one time a lady in a shop in Coonabarabran told me a crystal healed her from a really bad flu and I BELIEVE HER. She was very trustworthy-seeming.
Anyway, crystals. They do things. Here’s a list I did about what they can exactly do for you. But how do you incorporate all that spirit power into your home, to maximise your good vibes? If you’ve spent a motza on crystals of late, read on – while there’s no real rules on what to put where, you can bet your sweet bippy some crystals work best in certain rooms (and spots) around the home.
Rose quartz is a fave in the bedroom – it’s known as the “love” crystal, which works whether you’ve got a partner or not. For single guys/gals, rose quartz promotes self-love, and it’s known for bringing peace and serenity into a space. For couples, it can help deepen your connection to one another.
Putting one under your bed, at each bed post, is often done to “surround” the bed with love (yes I know how I sound, no I will not stop), or putting a rose quartz under your mattress is another op. You can also put one on your bedside table, if the other stuff seems too freaky for your liking.
Another good bedroom stone is selenite. It’s a deep energy cleanser – one of the only stones that will never take on bad energy, for example – and is used to promote restful sleep and a peaceful mind. Place one under your pillow.
THE LIVING ROOM
Selenite is great in the living room, too – because it’s known as a healing crystal and cleanses negative energies from spaces, it’s good to have in the room where you usually entertain guests, since who knows what TERRIBLE ENERGIES your friends have. Kidding. Not really kidding.
Amethyst is another one lots of ~crystal experts~ say works well in a living room space. It’s a stress-reliever, acts as an air purifier, and cleanses neg energy. So it works well in the space where you plop down after work and try to relax.
If you’re studying at home often, or living that freelance life, calcite is your boi. It’s meant to increase memory and learning abilities.
Tiger Eye is a good one if you find studying makes you anxious or stressed, it’s known as a grounding crystal, so it can help keep your over-active mind in check.
Carnelian is meant to be great for concentration, so if you’re a notorious procrastinator, get a big one.
THE FRONT DOOR
Yep, there’s a crystal that works best at your front door. It’s black tourmaline, known to be very protective and energy clearing. Put one anywhere near the front door of your house – many people’ll pop one in a pot plant, or above the door frame.
Obsidian and hematite are also used in this way, as they’re also known for their protective qualities.
Um yep, there are crystals for the kitchen too. Celestite is meant to help heighten health and well-being ‘vibrations’, so it’s a good one for the spot where you do all your cooking. Red Tigers Eye and Citrine are meant to aid digestion, so they’re good if you also eat in your kitchen.
