Why are Feng Shui crystals so beneficial?

On the face of it, crystals are just pieces of minerals or polished glass. What is there in crystals that makes them so special and what differs them from usual glass?

The truth is, Feng Shui crystals have a complicated structure which makes them so magical. Sugar and water also consist of crystals, but they are quite different from those used in Feng Shui. In fact, Feng Shui crystals are beautiful rock crystals that reflect the sunlight, destroy negative energy and create positive energy for you and your home. Hung over the center of your window, they are in their best place. Here, they catch the light and send it refracted into your room, thus focusing and activating positive energy inside your home. In a subtle way, energy vibrations become higher which is very beneficial.

Feng Shui crystals are traditional talismans and they are used alongside with wind chime. Rock crystals are believed to bring longevity, health, protect from negative energy, from infertility, improve memory, contribute to better attention concentration and fortify human energy.

Where can you place Feng Shui crystals?

The crystal should be placed in such a way that it would capture electrical or natural light. When the light is good, it is worthwhile turning the crystal from side to side to illuminate the walls, the ceiling and all the furniture. The redirected sun-rays create all kinds of colorful sunbeams, as well as rainbows: it means good energy and good luck for your home. It is better to hang the crystal on a red string. Its length must equal to number 9, for example, 9 inches or 9 centimeters, also it can be 18 and 27 inches or centimeters. In Feng Shui, number 9 is a sacred number and it unifies the power of Earth and Heaven.

The best place for the crystal is a window. On sunny days, the crystal captures energy and sunlight and redirects lots of rainbow beams in the room creating a positive energy and it also dissipates the energy that comes from the entrance door inside the room.

Crystal lustres are also good talismans. A lustre can redirect energy that it generates around the whole apartment. It can be hung in the middle of the room but not over a bed or a sofa, because it can activate energy which makes it difficult to fall asleep or have rest.

It is recommended to hang a crystal in front of a WC if it is situated opposite the entrance door. It will then prevent the chi energy that enters your home from escaping in the WC.

Crystals are able to harmonize a lot of aspects of our lives. A talisman in the south-west of a living room or a flat will help a woman find a good husband. It will help a married couple fortify their feelings and bring the clear love energy and happiness in their lives. The best way to use crystals in bedrooms is to place couples of objects, for example, two crystal lamps. If you place crystals in the kids' room they will help children to grow their creativity, improve their attention and working capacities.

What kind of crystals can be used?

It is considered that the best Feng Shui crystal is the rock crystal. But it is very difficult to find a natural crystal of a perfect shape while symmetry is also very important. That is why they often use special glass crystals in Feng Shui. Cut in a special way to form the crystal structure, they are quite efficient. How can you tell a good crystal from a usual glass? When you strike a crystal surface, you can hear the sound last on the same note for 3-4 seconds and then become quieter.

The best crystal products are Swarovski crystals and Bohemian crystals. Swarovski lustres contain silver ions which makes them especially effective when it comes to redirecting of light, and also, from Feng Shui point of view, creates additional conditions for space cleansing.

You can also take crystals, as found in nature, and place them on a shelf or a window sill.

How do you activate your talisman?

In order to activate beneficial energies of the crystal you first need to clean it from the unknown energy. For this, you can put it in salted water for 7 days. After cleansing of the talisman, it is good to charge it with your own energy. To do this, hold it in your hand, bring it to your heart or to the "Third eye" area (the place between your brows). It is better of you are in a positive mood and thinking about your wish. Do this once a month.

How do you choose your crystal?

When you choose your crystal or mineral, pay attention to its qualities. Pyramids of a correct form as well as balls and eggs play the same role as crystals.

Crystals of a spherical form are very harmonizing. They can be of any size. The smaller ones can be placed in children's rooms and they are perfect for smaller spaces. As for the bigger ones, up to 70 millimeters in diameter, they are good for banquet halls. Pyramids work milder than crystals, but they are more active than eggs or balls.

A crystal for a gift

In Feng Shui it is very beneficial to give presents because it is believed that if you give something, you multiply your luck, wealth and all the things that your gift symbolically means. That is why offering crystals is very beneficial. Think however about the mineral and its qualities and whether they will comply with the personality of the one to whom you want to present it when you make your gift.
