Crystals and gemstones are not just lovely to look at, they can be a very powerful tool in our daily lives. Crystals are often worn as jewelry, and they can also be carried in your pocket or purse. The act of simply touching a small "worry stone" can be very comforting.
Crystals can be used to help us stay grounded and balanced during stressful situations.
There are as many uses for crystals as there are types of stones. Crystals can be used to reinforce positive thinking, and maintain an environment of upbeat, protective energy.
Hematite is a great stone to carry if you work with the public. It's also helpful to place Hematite near the front door of your home. The protective energies will shield you from negativity brought by others. If you suffer from insomnia, place Hematite under your pillow to aid in providing a restful night's sleep.
Televisions, computers and other electronic devices emit artificial electromagnetic fields that can contribute to stress and negative feelings. These electronic items are a necessity to most of us, and the energy can be balanced using Lepidolite, a purplish, silvery stone. Fluorite, Smoky Quartz, and Amazonite can also be used to dispel electromagnetic stress.
Citrine is a good crystal for your business or workplace because it encourages prosperity and abundance. Citrine has the ability to diffuse and dissolve negative energy.
Smoky Quartz is another great stone to improve your environment at work. It has a powerful vibration that deflects negativity from co-workers. Smoky Quartz placed on your desk will provide a positive energy field, protecting you from gossip and easing tension.
Malachite is valued for its protective qualities. It literally absorbs anger, jealousy, fear and all sorts of negative energies. Malachite should be cleansed on a regular basis to maintain its vitality.
