So you’ve KonMari-d your home and it’s looking a little empty and sterile. What now?
“After decluttering, you’ll want to use crystals to bring in new energy,” Heather Askinosie, crystal expert, cofounder of Energy Muse, and co-author of Crystal Muse: Everyday Rituals to Tune Into the Real You told Domino.
“One of the best crystals for that is selenite, which can infuse your space with positivity. If you’re having trouble detaching from some of your old stuff, black kyanite can help you let go of your attachment to the item so you can truly declutter.”
Crystals, therefore, can help you emotionally as you work through the process of decluttering.
Increase the energy in your home
“Crystals carry a vibration, or frequency, that can amplify the energy that you want to create,” Askinosie explains. “They can create a peaceful, relaxing environment in your bedroom or a cheery and uplifting energy in your living room.”
Consider carefully how you want each room to feel in your home. Where do you need to feel uplifted? Which room should feel calm and peaceful? How can you feel focused in your study?
“Since each crystal carries a unique energy, you can use specific crystals to create the vibe you desire,” Askinosie adds. “Similar to the way that color schemes can change how a room feels, crystals can shift the ambiance of your home.”
Which crystals do the experts love?
There is a plethora of crystals that all claim to improve the energy in a space, so which ones do the experts use?
Here, Askinosie lists her all-time favourites:
“Selenite is a high-vibrational stone that is a powerful energy cleanser. Not only does it have the power to clear your energy field of any built-up emotions from the day, but it also clears away stagnant energy in your home.”
“Amethyst is many people’s first crystal, as it has an enticing appearance. It’s a stone of peace and relaxation and it helps you find moments of quiet and calm.
“Black tourmaline is a protective stone that shields you from negative and unwanted energy. It’s a must-have stone—both at home and on-the-go—as it keeps you in an energetic bubble of protection.
“Rose quartz is the stone of unconditional love. It is a powerful crystal to help with self-love, romantic relationships, friendships, and any other relationship that you want to infuse with loving vibrations. Simply having it nearby fills you and your space with loving energy.
“Pyrite is a money stone that increases your feelings of abundance. Its golden shimmer is symbolic of the wealth you want to attract. Pyrite strengthens your personal power and your self-worth to help you go after the financial success you want and deserve.”
Purchase with purpose
Now that you’ve sparked joy in your home, continue the practice when you make buying decisions.
In other words, be prudent with your purchases and make sure you’re not cluttering your home with too many crystals. Choose only the ones that spark joy – and energy – and add crystals mindfully.
