How to use crystals in magick

How to use crystals in magick
In magick, crystals can be used to alter energy fields, to indicate the boundaries of a sacred space, or to empower an object with that crystal's particular energy and purpose. Each type of crystal has its own particular energy which can be used for specific purposes. The energy produced by crystals can even be used for divination purposes if desired.

Placing crystals around the home also raises the vibrational frequency of the room in which the crystal has been placed.

How to choose a crystal

You can choose crystals for both their shape and their properties such as calming and healing.

Crystal placement

lucky crystals in magick Where to place crystals? Crystals can be placed around the home to protect and cleanse the home's energies. Hang prisms in stairwells, hallways, and windows to keep energy moving in the desired direction. However, other crystals should be placed on a flat surface whenever possible.

Tip: Place crystals at the corners of square or rectangular furniture to encourage energy to follow a curve rather than the straight line of the furniture.

You can place crystals singly or use a bowl to group several together for best effect.
