Uses in Feng Shui

Amplify the Nourishment of Food

Because clear quartz has a purifying, amplifying energy, we often recommend placing it in a fridge or pantry. You want this food to nourish and support you, and clear quartz can enhance its ability to do so. Start by making sure your fridge or pantry is clean and free from any expired items, and then place a clear quartz stone here with intention. 

Activate Dui, the Completion Area

Clear quartz can be a wonderful stone to work with in the Dui area of the feng shui bagua map, associated with completion and children. You might want to work with this area of your home or bedroom if you are having a hard time finishing projects, or if you want to support your children. To find Dui, stand in the front entrance to your home or bedroom facing in, and imagine a three-by-three grid laid over the space. The area on the center left is Dui. 

Invite the Metal Element

In feng shui, we work with the five elements, which represent different types of energy. Bringing specific elements into your home is one way to cultivate certain qualities in your life. The metal element, for example, is connected to precision and focus. To invite more of this type of energy into your life, you can add items to your home that activate the metal element, including clear quartz. If you’d like to work with clear quartz in this way, charge your crystal with your intention to invite in these metal element qualities before placing it somewhere meaningful in your home.

Activate Your Meditation Area

Clear quartz is a great stone for meditation since it can enhance mental clarity and emotional stability. If you have a meditation space in your home, you may want to place a clear quartz crystal here. If you don’t have a meditation space, but you’d like to cultivate a meditation practice, consider this your invitation to carve out a dedicated area in your home. Even if it’s a small corner of your bedroom, a piece of clear quartz can be an energetic support and a physical reminder of your intention for this area.

Activate the Tai Qi, or Health Area

The center of your home is called the Tai Qi, and it’s connected to your overall wellbeing. Because it’s in the center, it also affects all other areas of your home and life. Likewise, taking care of yourself can make a big difference in how you show up in all aspects of your life, including in your career, your relationships, and with your family. To purify and activate the Tai qi, you can place a clear quartz crystal in the center of your home or bedroom.

Wear Clear Quartz 

Feng shui isn’t just for your home. As feng shui practitioners, we also look at your personal qi, or energy. One way to purify and protect your personal qi is to wear clear quartz on your body. This can also be a way to harness this crystal’s protective energy as you are moving through your day. You can carry clear quartz in your pocket or your purse, or find a piece of jewelry that you would enjoy wearing. Remember to clear your crystal jewelry regularly, just like you would any healing stone.

Activate Your Beauty Cabinet

The items you use to groom and take care of yourself represent how you show up in the world, so it’s worth giving them a little extra attention. Like your fridge and pantry, you want to first make sure your beauty cabinet is clean, and remove anything that is expired or no longer useful to you. Then, activate the area by placing a clear quartz crystal in the center.

Activate Your Home Office

Because of clear quartz’s ability to enhance mental clarity and focus, it can be a great addition to a home office. Your office represents your career in feng shui, so it’s an important area to pay attention to if you’d like to energize or support this part of your life. Try placing a piece of clear quartz on your desk or on a shelf in your workspace.
