how to use crystals in everyday life

1 – Carry crystals with you

One of the simplest ways to use crystals in your everyday life is by carrying a small one wherever you go. Pop one in your pocket, purse, or backpack, and you’re good!

Try choosing a crystal that resonates with you and your intentions.  Want to amplify your energy? Grab a clear quartz. Need some grounding vibes? Use black tourmaline.  The possibilities are endless.

2- Wear crystal jewelry

When it comes to crystal jewelry, the options are as diverse as your unique energy. You can wear crystal bracelets, necklaces, or earrings. It’s like wearing a little piece of positivity that resonates with your intentions.

Before putting on your crystal jewelry, take a moment to set your intention. Close your eyes, breathe in deeply, and visualize the energy you wish to attract. Let your chosen crystal be a conduit for that positive energy throughout your day.

3 – Make a Crystal Grid

A crystal grid is a sacred arrangement of crystals strategically placed to amplify intentions and create a powerful energetic field.  The grid serves as a visual and energetic focal point, aligning our desires with the cosmic flow.

It’s a beautiful way to infuse intention, energy, and magic into our goals and dreams.

Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Your Crystal Grid:

1. Set Your Intention:

Begin with a clear and specific intention. What do you want to manifest? Whether it’s love, abundance, or career success, clarity is our guiding star.

2. Cleanse Your Crystals:

Before diving in, let’s ensure our crystals are pure and ready. Use your preferred cleansing method – be it moonlight, sunlight, or a quick sage cleanse.

3. Find Your Sacred Space:

Select a quiet and undisturbed space to create your crystal grid. It could be your meditation corner or a place where you feel connected to the universe.

4. Place a Clear Quartz at the Center:

Position a clear quartz crystal in the center of your space. This crystal acts as the powerhouse, amplifying your intention and connecting with the higher realms.  You can use another crystal instead of clear quartz, but I like clear quartz for its amplifying strength.

5. Surround with Crystals:

Create a circle around the clear quartz using your other crystals. Let your intuition guide you wherever you think they should be placed, or you can use a crystal grid template.

6. Activate Your Grid:

Now, it’s time to activate your crystal grid. Gently trace an imaginary line connecting each crystal, infusing them with your intention. Visualize your goals as if they’ve already manifested.

7. Meditate and Affirm:

Sit in the energy of your crystal grid. Close your eyes, meditate, and repeat affirmations related to your manifestation. Feel the vibrations and believe in the power you’ve unleashed.

8. Trust the Process:

Leave your crystal grid in place for as long as you feel necessary. Trust that the universe is working in alignment with your intentions. Stay open to receiving and remain patient.

4. Meditate with crystals

You can elevate your meditation by adding the energy of crystals into this sacred practice. Crystals like amethyst and selenite are good choices because they enhance relaxation and deepen our connection with the present moment.

Tips for Incorporating Crystals into Meditation:

Set Your Intention:

Begin by setting a clear intention for your meditation session. Whether it’s relaxation, inner peace, or spiritual insight, let your chosen crystal amplify and support your goal.

Create a Comfortable Space:

Find a quiet and comfortable meditation spot. Arrange your chosen crystals around you or hold them in your palms – whatever feels right for you.

Hold or Place Crystals:

Hold the crystal that resonates with your intention in your hand or place it on your body. For example, you can cradle amethyst in your palm for a calming effect or lay selenite on your chest or forehead to promote spiritual connection.

Focus on Your Breath:

As you settle into your meditation, bring your awareness to your breath. Let the rhythmic inhales and exhales keep you focused on the present moment.

Visualize Crystal Energy:

Visualize the crystal’s energy enveloping you in a cocoon of serenity. Imagine its vibrations merging with your own, creating a synergy that promotes relaxation and mindfulness.

Explore Crystal Shapes:

Experiment with different crystal shapes during meditation. Hold a tumbled stone, place a larger crystal point in front of you, or wear crystal jewelry. Each shape carries a unique energy that can enhance your experience.

Silent Reflection:

After your meditation, spend a few moments in silent reflection. Notice any shifts in your energy or insights that may have arisen during your crystal-infused practice.

Cleanse and Recharge:

After each meditation, cleanse your crystals to release any absorbed energies. You can use methods like moonlight, saltwater, or sage smudging. Recharge them, allowing them to rest and regain their vitality for the next time.

5 – Use crystals during yoga or exercise

You can infuse your yoga or exercise routine with the stabilizing and protective vibes of crystals. 

Pick a crystal that matches the vibe you want from your workout.  Black tourmaline or garnet can promote grounding energy for a yoga session, while carnelian and citrine can boost your energy for a lifting workout.

Tips for Incorporating Crystals into Your Workout Routine:

Crystal Placement:

Place your crystal near your yoga mat or exercise space. You can position them at the corners of your mat or create a small crystal grid around your workout area to establish an energetic boundary.

Wear Crystal Jewelry:

You can simply wear crystal jewelry like a bracelet or stud earrings. The direct contact with your skin allows the crystals to harmonize with your energy, creating a protective shield.

Hold Crystals During Your Practice:

Hold a palm stone in your hand during yoga poses or exercises. This physical connection enhances the grounding energy, helping you stay rooted and centered.

Just make sure your crystal is water-safe if you’re going to hold it while getting sweaty because you’ll have to rinse it off afterward.

Set an Intention:

Before starting your workout, set an intention for your workout.  Communicate with your crystal, asking it to support you in staying rooted, balanced, focused, energetic, or shielded throughout your practice.

Cleanse Your Crystals:

After each workout, take a moment to cleanse your crystals. This can be done through running water (especially if you’ve been sweating on your crystal – again, make sure it’s water-safe!), placing it near a clearing crystal like selenite, or by passing through incense smoke or sage.

Clearing away any absorbed energies keeps them ready for your next empowering session.

Thank Your Crystal

Express gratitude to your crystal for its assistance. Acknowledge the energy it’s shared with you during your workout.

6-  Place crystals in your home

Each crystal brings its unique vibes, transforming your home into a haven of balance and positivity.

Crystal Placement for Positive Energy:

Here are some suggestions for crystals you can put in different areas of your home. Of course, these are just suggestions, and if you feel called to a certain crystal, follow your intuition!

Living Room: Rose Quartz for Love and Harmony

Place rose quartz in the living room to foster love and harmony among family members. A rose quartz cluster or a bowl of tumbled stones can radiate gentle, heart-centered energy.

Bedroom: Amethyst for Serenity

Enhance the tranquility of your bedroom with amethyst. Position a large amethyst cluster on your nightstand or place amethyst points around the room to promote restful sleep and peaceful dreams.

I have a small amethyst organite pyramid that I sit on the shelf of my headboard to help me have restful sleep.

Home Office: Clear Quartz for Clarity

Boost mental clarity and focus in your home office by incorporating clear quartz. A clear quartz crystal or cluster on your desk can help create a conducive environment for productivity and clear thinking.

Kitchen: Citrine for Abundance

Infuse your kitchen with the energy of abundance by placing citrine near the stove or on the dining table. This sunny crystal is believed to attract prosperity and positive vibes to the heart of your home.

Entrance: Black Tourmaline for Protection

Welcome protection and ward off negative energy at the entrance by placing black tourmaline near the front door. This crystal acts as a shield, ensuring only positive energy enters your home.

Children’s Room: Fluorite for Focus

Create a focused and calm environment in your children’s room with fluorite. This crystal is thought to enhance concentration and mental clarity. You can place a fluorite pyramid or tumbled stones on their study desk.

❕Note: Please make sure you only place small crystals in a child’s room if you’re sure they won’t try to put it in their mouth!

Bathroom: Aventurine for Emotional Well-being

So much self-care happens in the bathroom.  Aventurine is associated with luck, abundance, and emotional well-being. It’s believed to create a positive atmosphere, making it an ideal choice for a space associated with rejuvenation and to help maintain an optimistic ambiance in this often-overlooked room.

Tips for Crystal Home Harmony:

🔮Cleanse Regularly: Periodically cleanse your crystals to maintain their positive energy. Methods like moonlight, sunlight, or sage smudging work wonders.

🔮Intention Setting: Before placing a crystal, set a positive intention. Communicate your desires for that particular space, allowing the crystal to align with your energy and goals.

🔮Rotate and Refresh: Occasionally rotate or refresh the crystals in different areas of your home to keep the energy flowing and vibrant.

7-  Keep a Gratitude Crystal

One of my favorite personal practices is to have a gratitude crystal.  You can use citrine, clear quartz, pyrite, or any other crystal that represents abundance to you.

Hold your crystal in your hands and infuse it with your intentions. Express your gratitude for what you have and set the tone for abundance. 

Personal note: I use a fairy stone for my own practice.  Fairy stones are native to Canada (my home) and can help connect with animal spirits and the higher realm.  Also called goddess stones, they’re a very grounding and protecting stone (big Mother Earth/earth goddess type energy).

So my fairy stone is what I use as my gratitude crystal because it always makes me feel held, protected, and connected with my spirit guides and with the land around me.  All things I’m truly grateful for.

Daily Tips for Using Your Gratitude Crystal:

🔮Create a Gratitude Ritual: Set aside a specific time each day to focus on gratitude. This could be in the morning, before bed, or during a break. Make it a ritual to connect with your crystal.

🔮Morning Gratitude: Begin your day by holding the crystal and expressing three things you’re grateful for. Feel the energy of the crystal amplifying your positive intentions.

🔮Gratitude Journaling: Write down your daily expressions of gratitude and place the crystal near your journal. Let it serve as a reminder to focus on abundance throughout your day.

🔮Gratitude Meditation: Incorporate your crystal into a short gratitude meditation. Hold it in your hand, close your eyes, and visualize the things you’re thankful for. Feel the crystal enhancing the energy of gratitude.

🔮Abundance Affirmations: During the day, carry the crystal with you. Whenever you need a boost, hold it and affirm your abundance. For example, “I am grateful for the abundance flowing into my life.”

🔮Nightly Reflection: Before bedtime, hold the crystal and reflect on the positive aspects of your day. Place it back in the jar or box, expressing gratitude for the experiences you’ve had.

🔮Crystal Cleansing: Periodically, cleanse your gratitude crystal to release any accumulated energies. This ensures it stays attuned to your intentions.

My fairy stone sits on the altar I have in my home office when I’m not carrying it around.  I use it in my daily mindset routine, and I set it on my nightstand at bedtime.  It’s the one crystal that I always make sure I have with me!

Your gratitude crystal is a powerful ally in cultivating abundance and positivity. Let its energy remind you of the richness in your life!
