Last Sunday morning I gave a colour crystal introductory workshop and I was once again blown away by the healing power of working with colour and crystals. The choice of crystals chosen matched the exact message needed for each individual. As each person worked with their chosen crystal, I could see and feel the energetic shifts in the group. It was very touching to watch. It also reminded me how crystals are a very powerful healing and supportive tool which have the ability to balance and harmonise us, our home and our office or work space. It is for this reason I am compelled to dedicate this week’s blog to crystals. Crystals are precious pieces of the Earth and as a colour therapist I have found them to be a very powerful tool to have to bring colour into our lives. They bring I the energies me need to peacefully follow our path and the wisdom to understand the journey. Colour is a language and it can help I to learn a lot more about ourselves and our true potential. They derive their power from the way they are created. The ancient belief that crystals are the bones of Mother Earth isn’t far from scientific proof. Crystals unleash energy blockages in the body. One way to utilise crystals is to hold them in your hand, breathe and visualise your intention. Or using a set of crystal chakra sets place them on the corresponding chakra. Leave them on your chakras for a minimum of 10 minutes. This helps you to re-program your mind with what you want, and programs the crystal or crystals as well and helps get your energy flowing harmoniously. I have outlined eight coloured crystal properties which can help you make the right crystal choice when you want to work on a specific issue or area in your life. RED CRYSTALSactivate and re-energise the entire body, igniting passion, action and life itself. They work to construct and build a vital energy force, while keeping I grounded. ORANGE CRYSTALS are energising, recharging the etheric body and enabling the emotional body to be uplifted and strengthened. YELLOW CRYSTALS are psychological tonic, uplifting and clearing the body and mind. This colour feeds the nervous system. GREEN CRYSTALS harmonises you increasing health and well-being, as well as healing and balancing the heart center. PINK CRYSTALSgently opens the heart to love, and realise our hearts desires. Pink also brings in compassion and allows you to express your feminine attributes. SKY BLUE CRYSTALS soothe throat problems enabling I to speak our truth, clearing the way for honest and open communication. INDIGO CRYSTALS help clear a cluttered and stressed mind, bringing clarity and a sense of direction. VIOLET CRYSTALS are spiritually soothing, raising our consciousness, purifying our energy and energetically clearing the space me live in. WHITE CRYSTALS contains all the colours of the spectrum, cleanses and energises. Clear Quartz is a great choice as it can be placed anywhere on the body and is great to have in your home and office to keep your space clear. BLACK CRYSTALS helps to ground and protect you from negative energies and emotions, helping you be more focused. When you choose and buy a crystal it is important to cleanse them, when you get home. And then at least once a month. You can do this by placing them in a bowl of water and a few pinches of sea salt and leave them for one hour. Then run them under the tap and allow them to dry naturally by the window. They are then ready for you to program your crystal with what you want from the crystal. Another way to cleanse them out in the energy of the full moon by your window or in your garden. Once cleansed, place the crystal(s) in your hand and say “I program this crystal for whatever you want”. Hold the crystal for a minute or so to allow you to connect with the crystal and your intent. You can either carry the crystal with you or leave it in a specific place. WHAT CRYSTALS CAN HELP BRING WEALTH, LOVE & ABUNDANCE INTO YOUR LIFE WEALTH: If you want to attract wealth in your home or office, choose Citrine. Known as the stone of success. Place a large piece of Citrine in the South East (furthest Left) corner of your home/office. You can also carry a piece of citrine stone in your wallet or purse. Citrine is also known as the Merchant’s stone because of its ability to bring wealth and prosperity to its owner. Another powerful technique is to write down what you want to manifest in your life right now. Sign your full name, record the time and date, and then place a citrine point on top of the paper. You can create a little alter if you wish and watch your dreams come alive. LOVE: Placing a large Rose Quartz Crystal or even better a Rose Quartz Heart in the South West Corner of your bedroom or by your bed will ensure a happy relationship with your partner or will attract romantic love if single. Wearing a rose quartz pendant will also attract love and harmonious relationships into your life.       ABUNDANCE:Carnelian placed by the front door invokes protection and invites abundance into your home.           CRYSTALS AT WORK
  • Place a piece of clear quartz,amethyst or tourmaline by your computer to help protect you from electromagnetic pollution.
  • Position a large smoky quartz on your desk or in your office to help you from picking up other people’s stress or frustration.
  • To disperse negative energy, use a black or dark stone, such as tourmaline, obsidian, smoky quartz, or hematite. These stones, when placed in a room, work as environmental cleansers that purify the area and protect it from negative energies. So go out this week and buy some crystals so you are supported, protected and energised. Vibrantly, Marcia x
