Many people begin incorporating vividly coloured crystals into home decor because they love the gorgeous look and because they add a luxurious accent to any surface. But decorating with crystals may offer additional benefits beyond aesthetics.
If you're serious about enhancing a space with crystals, the best place to find what you need is Forevergems. The staff are knowledgeable on the meanings and functions of different crystals. Can't get to the Forevergems Store in Franschhoek? You aren't doomed to a crystal-free existence. There are plenty of options on our online where you can purchase ethically sourced crystals packed with positive vibes.
The first step to choosing your crystal is to get out of your head and into your heart. Very often, the crystals you choose will be absolutely relevant to your life in the present moment. It's your intuition's way of telling you what your soul needs.
However, it can be helpful to start your online search with some direction, such as desired colour or gemstone. Shopping in person, on the other hand, offers a much more intuitive process. When you walk into a Forevergems, take note of which crystals stand out or call to you. You may even sweep your hands a few cm above the rows of crystals and see if you feel a tingly sensation over certain ones. Some people may get intuitive hits by having thoughts, feelings, or images pop up in their mind as they hold a particular stone.
In other words, you'll know that you've chosen the right crystal for you and your home if it feels right.
If the thought of solely relying on your intuition to choose crystals seems overwhelming, you can't go wrong with these starter stones:
Amethyst: Amethyst is like an energetic air purifier. It cleanses away any negativity that may be hanging around and makes sure your space carries an atmosphere of positivity where others will feel at home. Because of its calm, relaxing vibe, this purple stone is ideal in living rooms and spaces where people tend to gather.
Rose Quartz: While many people enjoy rose quartz in the bedroom for the pink stone's loving, compassionate, and gentle energy. You can keep a large version on your living room table.
Selenite: A white crystal, selenite is ideal for the home because it complements most aesthetics. It also has a very high vibration that helps body and mind to relax and can facilitates a deep sense of peace. Try selenite on a bookshelf in your living room.
Clear Quartz: Clear quartz, the "master healer," is a high-energy stone that can amplify the properties of other crystals. It's a great stone to place in entryways to create a high-vibration entrance to your home.
Black Tourmaline: Known as a "stone of protection," black tourmaline has been used by healers and shamans throughout history to ward off negative energy, making it another ideal crystal for your entryway. You can also use it in doorways and on windowsills.
Shungite: Askinosie describes shungite as "the friend in romantic comedies who the love interest doesn't realize is amazing until 60 minutes into the movie." Although it's been around for billions of years, shungite's amazing healing potential wasn't realized until the mid-1990s. It can absorb electromagnetic radiation from electronic devices. Try it in your office or media room.
Where to Place Crystals
Whether you showcase them on a TV unit, gather them in a small bowl on a coffee table, or use them as drawer pulls, crystals can enhance the beauty and energy of any room. It's more about which crystals you choose to use rather than where you choose to display them. However, some crystals like amethyst are sensitive to light, so keep them away from sunny windows to prevent fading.
One of the lovely things about crystals is that you can easily move them around to keep things fresh. This helps to keep the chi, or life force energy, easily flowing throughout your home. Just like how an acupuncturist inserts needles to open up the flow of energy within the body, crystals can act as chi enhancers to facilitate the energetic flow within your space.
