Today I've compiled a list of 7 ways to use crystals in your everyday life. There's many more ways to incorporate them in your life but these are some common and easy ones, and also the way I personally use them.
IN YOUR CAR
I have a Tiger's Eye in my car, which is very protective as a travelling stone. If you have road rage tendencies you could keep a moonstone, carnelian or amethyst in your glove box or hanging from your mirror.
TO MEDITATE WITH
Some people like to use crystals and stones to assist in obtaining a deep meditative state. Purple stones are great for tapping into your higher consciousness during meditation. Selenite is one of my favourites to meditate with as is clear quartz. I tend to hold them in my hand, but you can also use them on your chakras or even use them as a visual meditation.
WEAR AS JEWELLERY
The most common way of wearing them is as a ring but a lot of people don't even think about the type of crystal when they are looking at them in the shops! I like to wear my crystals as a necklace. A great way of doing this is in a pouch. This is because most pouches are inter-changeable and you can slip in the stone of your choice for the day.
CARRYING WITH YOU
Put a crystal in your pocket as you go about your day. Having certain crystals on you throughout your daily travels can be helpful in all types of situations. The crystal will amplify and intensify your energies that it resonates with. It's also handy for when you need some help calming down, or gaining confidence etc as you can just reach into your pocket and hold it.
Pink crystals are the stones of love. If you're single, use rose quartz on your bedsides and have it on you when on a date. If you're in a relationship, garnet is a fantastic to ignite passion, if you know what I mean. I keep a garnet under our mattress or on our bed head! Oh yeah ;)
IN YOUR PURSE
I always keep a citrine piece in my purse. Citrine is "my stone", which means I have been drawn to it from the time I started looking at crystals. It's always popping up in my life and I feel really strong energy from citrine. It's known as the merchant's stone of wealth because it promotes success, prosperity and abundance. But most of all, it promotes success in business and money involved situations. I keep it in my wallet for good cash flow. I also hold it in my hand when I buy a lottery ticket. Other good ones for your purse are pyrite (also known as fool's gold) and green aventurine.
TO LOOK AT
Crystals are pretty! Put them on display around your home and just enjoy the colours they add to your room.
