How to Use These Feng Shui Stones
No matter what your intention is, crystals are always high-vibrational and beneficial, and they can be used in various ways to elevate the energy in your home. Let’s see how...
Protect Your Home
Because their vibration is so positive, feng shui crystals act as natural energetic shields. To use them for protection, choose one that draws you in and makes you feel most safe. Select your protection crystal intuitively, or based on your Bagua map.
Bless it with an intention to protect your home, cleanse space the with sage or incense if you feel called to do so, and then place the crystal on your spiritual altar.
An altar can be any place in your interior that you deem to be suitable for protection. Some of the best spots for this purpose are near the front door, or in particularly prominent areas of your home where there is a high circulation of people and energy.
Crystals for protection will keep your space protected from malicious influences. The altar can serve as a meditation or prayer spot. To amplify the power of the crystal even more, you can write a protection prayer and place it under the crystal.
Remove Negative Energy & Bring in Positive Energy
Feng shui crystals are powerful tools for transmuting energy. They activate positive and remove negative chi from your living environment. While some ward off negativity and work as a shield from unwanted energies, other crystals simply absorb negativity from your space or bring in joyous energy, lighting up your home.
For this purpose, you can blend two or three crystals that work together. If possible, palace a chosen crystal or crystals in the Central Bagua area, which will allow positivity to spread throughout your entire home. If you have more crystals, you can place them in a few key areas of your home to maximize their effect.
To create the ultimate high-vibrational field in your home, chose five crystals and organize them in such a way that they create an energy field touching the center and all four corners of your home:
- The upper left
- The upper right
- Bottom right
- Bottom left
- Center area of the Bagua map
Depending on which crystals you chose, make sure you cleanse them on a regular basis. This will help eliminate accumulated negativity the crystals have absorbed and ensure they can keep protecting your home at their maximum ability.
Ground the Energy
Feng shui crystals are especially useful for grounding the energy in a space. They are a great remedy for any area of the Bagua map that requires a balance of elements or lacks Earth and Wood elements. These are especially ungrounded spaces, and simply placing a gemstone in those areas can change the chi for the better, making your living space more serene.
Although they have a grounding effect no matter where they are placed, it is helpful to know which area of your home requires grounding the most. You’ll know this intuitively by feeling fidgety, nervous, or particularly anxious and restless when you're in a certain room.
Energy is especially unbalanced in rooms that contain a lot of technology. In that case, place a crystal of your choice near your electronics to neutralize the effect of radio waves, as this will help settle the energy.
It can be helpful to have a natural base for the crystal that represents the Wood or Earth element, such as a wooden table or a ceramic plate, as these will further help ground the energy.
The same applies to healthy, beautiful decorative plants, as keeping feng shui gemstones near a plant can help amplify the calming effect they have, while helping them thrive at the same time.
Used this way, crystals will not only help you feel more centered and peaceful at home but also promote feeling of being rooted, improving your focus and concentration.
Crystals are powerful tools for transforming chi, healing negativity, and raising the vibration in a home or space. When handled properly and combined with feng shui rules and principles, the effect of having them in your space can be truly miraculous.
