A clear quartz crystal, especially a crystal that is clear/transparent, is an absolute joy to look at. One can spend many hours looking inside the crystal and being mesmerized by the intricacy of various shapes and liquid forms.
You do not have to be psychic to connect to the energy of a clear quartz crystal, you just need to be curious and open-minded. Even though on a molecular level crystals are solid matter made of a continuous rhythm of identical patterns, each crystal is unique and beautiful.
The clear quartz crystal comes in many forms—from tumbled rocks and small points to impressive big clusters and generators. You can also find little souvenirs or sculptures made of clear quartz, as well as, of course, clear quartz jewelry. Most of the clear quartz crystals on the market come from Brazil, the U.S., and China.
So what is special about the clear quartz crystal? And how do you use it for your healing, in jewelry, or for good feng shui in your home?
One distinctive ability of the clear quartz is that you can program the crystal with your intent. You can also charge it with specific energy, be it from nature or people.
To program a crystal with intent means the crystal will hold specific thoughts or a quality of energy that you ask it to hold. To charge it with energy from nature, for example, means the crystal will absorb and carry the energy you take it to in any natural spot that you want to feel connected to—be it a rainforest, a jungle, or your favorite spot on the beach.
Another distinctive ability of the clear quartz crystal is the ability to clear/wash/purify the energy around it. This is why, for example, you can place your jewelry on a crystal cluster and feel it cleansed after a couple of hours.
Feng Shui Properties
In feng shui, clear quartz is used for its ability to hold and transmute light, as well as to cleanse/purify the energy. Clear quartz can be used extensively as a feng shui cure in any Bagua area that needs clearing and can benefit from the earth feng shui element of the crystal.
A clear quartz cluster in the living room can be a beautiful remedy to create more harmony in the family, while smooth, clear tumbled crystals can bring freshness and light to your altar, for example. A round faceted clear quartz is used as a feng shui crystal cure for a variety of feng shui situations, from a direct door alignment to a dark corner with stagnant energy.
Placement for Good Feng Shui
Unless you have a big clear quartz cluster, you can freely place the clear quartz anywhere you feel the need to. Be sure to cleanse your crystals often, and don't be shy to experiment and move them from place to place. You might feel the need to have several points in your Creativity Bagua area, for example, and then a couple of months down the road you will sense the need to move them close to your front door. Trust your feelings and listen to your crystals.
If you have a big crystal clear cluster, then it is best to place it in a Bagua area that has the Earth feng shui element as either the governing element or the nourishing one.
It is always good to have several clear quartz tumbled crystals, as they can travel with you anywhere (in your pocket, purse, or car), as well as a move to different areas of your home. Clusters are excellent for any family, just be sure not to place a crystal cluster too close to the bed. Crystal points are good for healing and redirecting of energy.
