More people have become more open to using crystals in their meditation and yoga routines and in their homes to ward off negative energy. Crystal takes thousands to millions of years to form; that's why they contain so much energy. But even though they carry such energy crystals don't do magic. They are amazing tools to magnify your own energy and intentions, helping you to manifest them in life.
For years, people have placed crystals in their homes to ward off negative energy, improve sleep, encourage prosperity, and create harmony. Placing crystals in your home will help you maintain positive energy in your sacred space, where you unwind at the end of every tedious day. If you're getting into crystals and crystal healing, it can be a little overwhelming. Read on for us to guide you on this journey.
What are crystals
Crystals are an end product of minerals bonding together in a specific pattern which determines the type of crystals you get and not the outer appearance. Crystals contain the earth's DNA in their structure. Crystal healing involves placing gemstones on your body or in your surrounding environment to help draw out negative energy. Crystals work with your energy field to absorb, focus, and direct energies.

After purchasing a new crystal or stone, it is important to cleanse its energy by simply dipping it in saltwater. Some crystals are not advised to dip in water such as Black Tourmaline, Rose Quartz, and Shungite.
Some crystals can be damaged by water. You can cleanse such crystals by exposure to the full moonlight, take the crystal indoors a few hours past sunrise.

Keep in mind that some crystals like citrine don't require cleansing.
After you have cleansed your crystal, infuse your intention into the crystal to activate it. You can do this by holding it in your palms and taking deep breaths while focusing on positive thoughts and feelings. Go to your happy place.
After you've arrived in that positive mental space, say your intentions aloud to activate your crystal. When making an intention, be as specific with your wording as possible. Repeat your intentions out loud a few times, then finish up with gratitude.
Remember to always reactivate your crystal with intentions every time after cleansing.
If you're looking into ways to up your spiritual game or make your home a safe and protected haven, crystals are the way to go. All the above are simple ways to use crystals in your home environment to ensure abundant positive energy.
Always make sure you clean up your crystals after purchase and, if possible, every month. Each time you cleanse them, refill them with your intentions. Always be patient and keep your thoughts positive to help manifest those intentions you've set quickly. Don't rush the universe and have faith.
