There is an ever increasing focus on how a home looks, it’s easy to forget about designing for how a home feels. Many people may not even realize that this factor is something they can change.
The objects that we choose to put in our homes hold vibrations. Crystals have unique beautiful energetic vibrations that can help you set the tone for your home.
For centuries, crystals have been used in homes to ward off negativity, increase prosperity, improve sleep, and create balance. Our homes are sacred, a place to unwind and connect with loved ones. Crystals help ensure your space remains both cozy and safe.
There are thousands of crystals to choose from so it’s important to know a few basics. The first step is to cleanse your space and crystals for a nice clean slate. Placing crystals within your home without a cleansing will only amplify stagnant energy.
Burning sage is a great and simple method to remove negative energy from your home. All you need for a cleanse is a stick of sage, a fireproof container to catch the ashes, and a lighter or match. Light your sage and place it in your container and make sure your windows are open to release any negativity. Keep a positive intention in mind, waft the smoke over your crystals and continue to waft the smoke walking around your home. This is a great way to just give your home a clean energy.
Crystals will absorb energy overtime so it’s a good idea to perform this ritual once a month to give your home a fresh energy. After your home is cleansed it’s time to activate your crystals. Activate your crystals through a simple mindfulness ritual. Take the crystals one at a time and hold them in the palms of your hands. Relax your breath, close your eyes, and think about what energy you want this crystal to bring to your environment. Do this ritual for each crystal and place them in the rooms that you feel resonate with you, follow your intuition.
When matching the crystals to their rooms, you can amplify the energies you need most in that particular space. When you start assigning your crystals their duties around the house, the bedroom will beam with love and relaxation, the living room becomes energized, and your whole space takes on a protective aura.
