Once formed in nature by the solidification of chemical substances, these vibrant gems are defined by beauty, and have many fascinating significance’s and purposes. Indeed, crystals have many uses, from adorning a beautiful engagement ring, to imperative industrial applications. Crystals are also recognized as having healing and spiritual powers, and tare used to improve life and health in Feng Shui.
The word crystal comes from the Greek word krystallos, meaning “frozen light”, which is not really applicable when it comes to the magical power crystals do incorporate. In Feng Shui, quartz crystals are widely used to amplify energy, vibrations, thoughts and feelings. They are used at home, in the office or business, and even in vehicles.
Placing a crystal in the corner of a room will encourage the universal life force to flow through the room freely. If the energy force is disturbed it can affect health, thoughts and abundance of wealth.
Feng Shui practitioners recognize crystals as tools, bearing different applications. They are used in specific areas of life that need to be improved. For example, if you have been unsuccessfully job hunting for a while, and are becoming discouraged, harnessing the energy of carnelian crystals in the southern sector of your home may help you anchor yourself back in reality. On the other hand, if you are looking for love and romance, or need your broken or scarred heart to heal, rose quartz may do the trick.
Crystals represent an excellent approach of bringing the ancient Feng Shui placement method into modern-day homes. When using crystals to stimulate chi, the energy symbolizing life, health, prosperity and other positive aspects of life, be aware that it may take some time before the subtle energies of the crystals settle in. Be patient, and before you know it your home will be transformed, moving you closer to the universal balance, you so desire.
