    Rock crystals in tumble form are very easy to find and are very inexpensive; this makes them an excellent feng shui tool to take care of your energy. Tumble crystals are smooth and light; they are easy to carry, easy to display and easy to cleanse.

    How can you use the tumble crystals? 

    You can:

    • Carry them in your pocket
    • Have them under your pillow or the mattress
    • Place them in plants or near the fountain
    • Display several crystals by your bed

    The idea is to have your tumble crystal within easy reach so that it won't matter whether you're meditating or amid busy city traffic. The calmness and potent energy vibrations of a crystal can soothe and raise your energy.

    The best source of tumbled rock crystals are good quality new age bookstores and crystal shops, of course. You can also order tumbled crystals online.

    If you are beginning to work with crystals and are not sure which crystals to choose, go with the color you want the most. As each color carries a specific vibration, you know you are making the right choice if you are strongly attracted to the crystal color.

    Small crystal carvings, figurines or small natural formations are the next feng shui step in using crystals to maintain your energy levels. There is a variety of beautiful sculptures from various crystals, such as Rose Quartz, Celestite, Amethyst, Jade Buddhas, Sandstone, Jasper and more.

    Some of the most popular carvings are hearts (of course!), angels, Buddha, elephants, pyramids, small spheres, etc. If there is a symbol or image that you resonate with, an image that speaks to you of powerful energy, then having it in crystal form is an effective feng shui cure indeed.

    When you can benefit from an energy of a specific crystal or image, but do not want to wear it as a jewelry piece, a small crystal in your pocket or on your nightstand can be your best choice.

    Be sure to take good care of your crystals, cleanse them often and treat them with respect. A small pouch made from natural material, such as silk, cotton, or leather, is excellent for carrying or storing your crystal.

    How to Choose Crystal Jewelry

    One of the best ways to benefit from the healing energy of crystals is to wear them as jewelry. This is how the jewelry came into being - by humans finding ways to bring the power of crystals close to the body.

    The challenge with buying good feng shui jewelry is in knowing which crystals to avoid. There are many crystals used in jewelry that have been either colored, radiated, or artificially made. So, if your goal is to buy jewelry with good feng shui energy, be sure you are purchasing genuine crystals.

    Pendants that go over the heart area or over the solar plexus, bracelets, and rings that touch the acupuncture meridians or earrings that do the same - you choose what speaks to you the most.

    From earrings to necklaces, from bracelets to belts, there are so many creative ways to benefit from the healing vibrations of various crystals. Do you need more calm and peace? Then go for the soft, calming energy of celestite, moonstone or aquamarine, for example. Are you looking for more energy? Then maybe the fiery carnelian or garnet can help you. More grounding and protection? Try black tourmaline or obsidian.

    A creative and powerful way to use the feng shui energy of crystals is to make your jewelry. It is not hard once you learn how to, and you can create exactly what you need. Of course, I do not mean you will start making sophisticated jewelry just by taking one or two classes, but you can sure make simple crystal bracelets and necklaces.

    There is such a stunning variety of crystal beads on the market, one trip to a bead store - one that carries natural rock crystal beads - is enough to make your creativity flow!
