Everyone knows that nature is good for your health and well-being, but the modern lifestyle has us spending the majority of our time indoors and cut off from the natural world. That’s why it is a wonderful idea to bring more natural elements, such as crystals and stones, into your indoor spaces. Mother Nature is the best artist, and each crystal is a unique masterpiece of light and color, form and texture. Like snowflakes, no two crystals are exactly the same—so when you decorate your space with crystals, you are adding a very unique touch to your environment. Beyond just being aesthetically pleasing, crystals offer energetic benefits to your home or workspace. Due to their unique chemical compositions and geometric structures, they emit a positive energy field that can elevate your personal environment. Having crystals around you can energetically support and uplift your body, emotions, mind, and spirit. Crystals by Nature offers a beautiful inventory of crystals for home décor, and I would like to share with you some of my personal favorites.
Crystal or Mineral Lamps. When I bring home new treasures from the crystal shop, one of the first things I do is grab a flashlight and shine it through the translucent ones. The light allows you to really see and appreciate the beautiful color rays, inclusions, and inner sanctums of the crystal. When you buy a crystal lamp, you have the benefit of constant illumination. This adds a magical and vibrant quality to the crystal formation that makes it really stand out in your home, and it is also functional. Who wouldn’t love an Amethyst lamp on the bedside table for reading or in a massage treatment room for a soothing, purple glow?
There are several great options for crystal lamps, but my two favorites are Selenite and Himalayan Salt lamps. There is something utterly magical about the large Selenite tower lamps. They resemble a fairytale castle and look stunning in any space. I bought one for my parents, and they get constant compliments on it. Selenite is known as one of the highest vibration minerals on the planet, and it brings in refined, spiritual vibrations that clear and uplift any space where it is placed. If you would like for your home to feel like a peaceful, holy temple, go for Selenite.
Another very popular and beautiful choice is a Himalayan Salt lamp. They emit a gorgeous, orange light like the sun, and they provide a lot of wonderful benefits. When Himalayan Salt is heated, it generates negative ions, which purifies the air. I had a friend who suffered greatly from allergies, and he saw a dramatic improvement in his condition when he placed a few Himalayan Salt lamps around his home. Negative ions can also improve your mood, concentration, sleep, and energies levels, while helping to clear electromagnetic radiation emitted from your electronics.
Gem Trees. I don’t know about you, but I have a love affair with trees. As a child, I grew up deep in the woods, surrounded by them. Each tree on the property was my friend and had a name, and I was familiar with every branch. Trees have spiritual significance in almost every culture, because they provide food, shelter, and medicine. They are associated with longevity, growth, and the interconnectedness of life.
Gem Trees are a beautiful symbol of abundance and manifestation, and having one in your space can help attract and create a specific outcome. To help you select the right one, think about what you would like to experience more of in your life. Is it love, prosperity, spiritual growth, joy, or something else? Once you become clear about what you’d like to attract into your reality, then you can select a Gem Tree with stones that are compatible with your goal. Here is a list of the energetic properties of stones, to help you in your selection:
Citrine: abundance, manifestation, joy, energizing
Amethyst: spiritual growth, peace, cleansing
Rose Quartz: love, gentleness, emotional healing
Aventurine: prosperity, healing
Sodalite: peace, truth
Carnelian: energizing, joy, healing
Hematite: grounding, protection, Earth connection
Clear Quartz: versatile—can work with any intention
Pyrite: protection, abundance, energizing
Multi-stone: chakra balancing, joy, versatile—can work with any intention
Once you have your Gem Tree, you could spend some time meditating with it. Imagine that you are projecting your desired outcome into the tree, so that the seed of your intention can take root and grow in your life. A good placement for your Gem Tree might be on your work desk, in your living room, or any place where you regularly spend time. Each time you see your beautiful tree, it will be a positive reminder and reinforcement of the good things you are manifesting.
Amethyst Cathedrals: I remember the first time I was in the presence of a very large Amethyst Cathedral. I was probably about five years old, and it was big enough for me to have folded my entire body into the cavern of sparkling, Amethyst crystals. I was completely mesmerized and can still remember it in vivid detail about thirty-five years later. If you would like to have an unforgettable, natural power piece in your home that will turn heads, look no further than an Amethyst Cathedral.
Amethyst is one of the most sought-after gemstones, due to its beauty and beneficial metaphysical properties. It is one of the best stones for your home, because it clears and transmutes negative energy. It will keep the vibration of your space very elevated, peaceful, and spiritual. Amethyst has a calming effect on the emotional and mental bodies, helping to release anxiety, overwhelm, stress, anger, depression, and grief. It enhances healing, intuition, and spiritual connection, and it helps you to make positive shifts. The cathedral formation is especially powerful, because all of the individual Amethyst points amplify each other, creating a more powerful force field of energy.
When you need to spruce up the look and feel of your home, look no further than the mineral kingdom. It offers you something that HomeGoods and Pottery Barn can’t: unique, one of a kind, natural works of art that can transform both the look and energy of your space.
