Insights on the feng shui energies, meaning and use of popular crystals as home decor cures
Crystals have been used in feng shui since ancient times because they bring an exquisite energy from Mother Earth that is healing, powerful, and of course unique to each crystal. The vital and powerful energy most of us need daily can be accessed by wearing a specific crystal as jewelry, carrying it in your pocket, or displaying it in your home for good feng shui. The unique vibration, or energy signature of a crystal, is expressed in its color, shape, physical structure, texture, and even the locality it came from.
The feng shui use of crystals can be seen as energy boosters that bring specific nourishment needed in a physical body or a physical space. As feng shui is all about creating good energy, it goes without saying that crystals and stones have become one of the most popular feng shui cures for any space—be it home, office or garden.Even though only a few crystals have been used consistently in Classical feng shui as cures, you should not limit yourself to the ones you see in traditional applications. The fact that the ancient land of China was abundant in jade does not make crystals and stones from other corners of the earth less potent for good feng shui use in your home.
Here comes my A-Z of the use of good feng shui crystals. Some crystals, such as the green tourmaline, or the rose quartz, have entire articles devoted to them, and some crystal information is still in the making. I will be adding more info as I go, so feel free to come back here often.
