Urban Zen Tip #9: Let’s Get Crystallized!

I am a BIG fan of using crystals to energise my life – I have them in most places I work or live in and wear them. I also think in this busy hectic society, crystals can be used to ground us when we are rushing around and juggling our lives.

More than ever, most people will engage with their upper chakras more during the day – so to get some flow, we need to return to the present moment, stop being in our heads all the time and manifest things with much more ease (and trust) into our physical lives (work, home, people etc)… we all need to be a little more grounded these days – And crystals are perfect for this so…

Let’s Get Crystallized! 🙂

Grounding crystals bring healing and equilibrium to the mind, body, soul and spirit. They also assist us with balancing ourselves and our emotions – with added protection, inner clarity and a sense of being.

Easy tips to use crystals:

  • Wear a ring or pendant daily
  • Use them in your meditations, even to just have them nearby
  • Energise them regularly – by soaking them in sea salt/water or by digging them in the earth for 24 hours
  • Visualise their energy in your life when needed
  • When buying crystals, trust your instincts as to which crystal attracts you
  • Carry them in your purse or bag
  • Energise your home by placing them in personal areas that you spent a lot of time in, like the bedroom or meditation space
