Our homes are spaces where we have made our mark, that reflect our personalities and our interests. The ambience of a home is also reflected in the energy felt in the home, with grief causing the home to feel darker and the energy tense when there has been disagreement in the home. This is why those who live chaotic thinking often have a house in disarray. Fortunately, the house energy can be cleansed to let in light and love again to help your spirit feel the same vibrations. Here we look at how crystals for the home help create a positive tone for space and spirit in your kitchen.
Forms of crystals
Crystals are often decorative items that are kept on the shelf or counter and not everyone understands their use and benefits. One of the reasons for this is that crystal is the traditional 15th wedding anniversary gift which is why you often see crystal glasses or a crystal vase on display in the kitchen. There are other forms of crystal used for this anniversary and here you can read more about other symbols for the day and how crystal can be the basis on which you choose your anniversary celebration.
Crystals in the kitchen are chosen to keep food healthy by getting rid of toxins and protecting food from diseases. When using stones in the kitchen, these can be in the form of dream catches above the dining area or kitchen counter. A more permanent solution to get protection is to have the gemstone built into a ceiling panel when you are doing a kitchen build or refit. Programming a gemstone to detect unwarranted vibrations in various parts of the kitchen can halt any issues in their tracks. The final way to use gemstones is as an elixir that cleanses body, mind and spirit. Gems are infused with water under a full moon, which charges the water with the same energy as the stone.
