We give a lot of attention to the way we organize our homes. Feng shui can help us achieve calm and balance and make use of each room, garnering their full potential, and we spend weeks hemming and hawing over the right lamp to make a room feel cozy and grounded. In short, we want to feel like the weight of the world lifts from our shoulders as soon as we open that door and cross the threshold into our homes.
Luckily, this isn’t so difficult to do. A few strategically placed crystals can help us shift the energy and make sure that our homes are as positive and holistic as possible.
When you walk in the door: Tuck away a jade stone. Known to bring wealth and good luck, jade will help you bring abundance into your home each time you walk in the door. Really want to boost the good vibes in the entrance? Nestle a couple coins next to the jade to amp up feng shui.
When you want to whip up a meal: Many people say that food is the way to the heart, so it makes sense that we’d want to cook with love. In order to create a loving atmosphere in your kitchen or dining room, often the centers of the home, add a piece of rose quartz. This crystal is buzzing with healing, nurturing energy, so you’ll be creating soul food no matter the cuisine.
When you want sweet dreams: Let’s face it. The bedroom is probably one of the most important rooms in our houses. A good night’s rest is the best remedy for a whole host of issues, so proper, restful sleep is essential. To encourage wonderful dreams and the best sleep of your life, stow some amethyst under your pillow. It supports calm, balance and peaceful energies to help you sleep like a king. A nugget of rose quartz next to it will also ensure that you have the best sex of your life.
When you want to get squeaky clean: We spend a lot of time and energy on our skin and bodies, making sure we’re fresh and beautiful. If you want to promote self-love and confidence each morning and evening when you look in the mirror, clear quartz is the stone for you. It clears the energy all around it, so it’s the ideal crystal for when we want to cleanse ourselves.
When you want to unwind: Relaxation is imperative for good health, and many of us choose to decompress from stressful days in our living rooms. Resting a piece of amber next to your sofa will purify your space and bring positivity. Your Netflix and chill sessions will be that much more relaxing.
When you want to get down to business: Though your home should be a peaceful space all your own, sometimes we need to do a little bit of work. If you want to improve your mental clarity and get a huge boost of concentration, keep some citrine at hand in your home office. Known as the success stone, citrine will ensure the perfect amount of focus to get sh*t done.
