The world is an unpredictable and chaotic place. Everyday takes us away from ourselves and into a situation that we’re not sure about or we’ve never experienced.
We could be meeting with a stranger, making a new friend, taking on new responsibilities, or going through something for the first time that feels overwhelming. These are situations when it’s important to have crystals (along with all the other self-care essentials) to help us survive them unscathed.
Crystals are the most powerful healing tools that we have. They can help with anything from stress and anxiety to depression, anger, exhaustion, overwhelm, and loneliness. They also bring luck and love into our life.
If you don’t have some crystals in your home then I recommend that you start collecting some right away. Below are the 7 crystals that you should have in your home for maximum benefit.
1. Smokey Quartz
Smokey Quartz is one of the most powerful healing crystals that you can buy. It’s one of my favorites and I always have at least one piece of it in my home or office.It’s great for absorbing negativity, especially from your computer. You should place it near your monitor (but not touching it) to help clear out and filter the electric and magnetic fields that emanate from your computer screen.
It’s also a great crystal to use when you feel overwhelmed or stressed out. It will help you to stop worrying and start breathing in order to calm down and relax.
Amethyst is the stone of spirituality and helps us to get in touch with our intuition so we can make better decisions in life. It’s also great for spiritual protection, insomnia, and beautiful dreams.
Place an amethyst cluster on my bedside table to help with dreams and meditation. Amethyst also great for activating the Crown Chakra when you’re in need of some spiritual guidance and clarity.
3. Clear Quartz
Clear Quartz is one of the most popular and powerful crystals because it has a very strong vibration. It works really well when you need a little extra energy to get through something, or if you have an energetic blockage that needs to be released.
It can also help us to communicate better because it works with our Third Eye Chakra, which is responsible for clairvoyance and psychic abilities. If you have a crystal that’s cloudy or milky inside then you should throw it away because it won’t be beneficial.
4. Black Tourmaline
Black Tourmaline is one of the most popular stress reduction crystals. It protects us from any negative energies that are coming our way, which means less stress, anxiety, and negativity in your life. It’s also great for protection during the night as well.
Place a large piece of black tourmaline in your living room to protect and filter out all the negative energies coming from all the electronics that are all over your house. If you want to add even more protection to your home then you can place them near your front door along with a smoky quartz.
Hematite is one of my favorite crystals because it works really effectively when you need to make an important decision. It helps us to think clearly, be more rational, and be able to see things for what they are without being swayed by our emotions.
It helps to balance our mind and body so we can be in alignment with ourselves. It’s great for manifesting, too. If you keep a piece near you while you sleep then it will attract dreams of opportunities and possibilities into your life.
The only drawback with hematite is that it can sometimes make us feel a little bit emotionally detached from others. It’s best to avoid this crystal if people-pleasing or compassion are areas that you need to work on.
6. Blue Lace Agate
Blue Lace Agate reminds us of the wisdom of knowing what we need and what we don’t in any given situation. It’s a great stone to help us with setting boundaries because it will protect us from people who aren’t respecting our needs.
It helps us to feel like we’re flowing through life instead of fighting the current. It is also great for eliminating negativity, fears, and emotional wounds that keep repeating themselves in our life.
7. Rose Quartz
Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love and self-love. It helps to open our Heart Chakra so we can be more loving and compassionate towards ourselves as well as others.It’s great for creating more self-worth and validation, which makes it a great stone to use when you’re trying to attract abundance, prosperity, and money into your life.
I also like to have a small piece of rose quartz in my wallet because it helps me to stay more grounded when I feel the need to splurge on something.
Selenite helps us to release our attachments to things, people, and situations that don’t serve us. It’s great for clearing clutter in the home and the mind. It helps us to see things from a higher perspective so we can move forward with our lives and leave old baggage behind.It will also help you to become more conscious of your surroundings because it works with our Third Eye Chakra when it comes to psychic abilities.
This is also a great crystal for headaches, insomnia, and detoxifying the body.
Ametrine is a combination of citrine and amethyst so it shares their properties as well. It helps us to be more grounded, calm, and focused. It will also help with overcoming negative habits and addictions that keep repeating themselves in our lives.
This is a great stone to have around if you’re dealing with an unhealthy relationship because it will help you to let go of the relationship without feeling guilty or angry. It’s also very helpful for people that are grieving the loss of a loved one.
Healing Crystals for Your Home
Each of these crystals has different properties that you can work with to create more abundance in your life. They can also be used to facilitate more positive interactions in your life by clearing old energies and introducing new ones.
You can always start out with crystal grids because they’re the easiest way to use energy healing when you aren’t sure how to go about it. After that, you can start trying out different stones and see what works for you.
However, I recommend starting with only one or two crystals at a time so you don’t get overwhelmed. You can always add more as your energy becomes clearer and stronger.
