10 Crystals For Positive Energy & Happiness

10 Crystals For Positive Energy & Happiness

Modern medicine and science still don’t have all the answers, and oftentimes, their cure is worse than the disease. Especially when it comes to your mental health and sense of well-being, doctors are still limited in their approach.

Instead of relying on prescriptions, you should give crystal healing a try. Crystals contain healing and purifying energies which can cleanse your body and environment. Even if the negative energy and thoughts are coming from your own mind and soul, there are crystals that can help you expunge those crippling afflictions.

Here’s a guide on how to use crystals most effectively, as well as our top 10 list of the crystals for positive energy and overall happiness.

Crystal Maintenance: Cleansing, Charging, and Wearing

When you first get a crystal, whether it is from the store or a friend, it’s always a good idea to cleanse it before use. Crystals are great at collecting energy, which is the property used to protect you from negative influences. They can get full, though, and when that happens, they must be cleansed in order to work at their maximum potential again.

To cleanse your crystal, leave it overnight buried in sea salt, on a clear and empty tabletop. The salt will absorb the impurities locked within the crystal, leaving it fresh and ready to protect you from negative energy. Alternatively, you can pass crystals through sage or smudge stick smoke to release pent-up vibrations.

To recharge your crystal you also have a few options. One is to leave the crystal in direct sun or moonlight, or to bury it in the ground to let it reclaim the healing powers of the earth. It should only take a day or two to recharge crystals this way. You may also meditate with your crystal, directing your thoughts, needs, and desires into it with deep, forceful breaths.

Wear your crystal as a piece of jewelry or keep it in your pocket. Know, however, that direct contact with the skin allows crystals to work the strongest. Placing crystals over your major chakra points during meditation is another favored method of crystal healing.

The Best Crystals for Happiness and Positive Energy

1. Turquoise

Whenever someone is complaining of general malaise, turquoise is the first stone I recommend. Turquoise has long been prized for its inspirational influence, bringing feelings of peace, ease, and satisfaction to the wearer. Turquoise tends to have an emboldening effect in social situations, making you feel more extroverted. This stone is so powerful it often influences others around you, too.

2. Rose Quartz

So often our happiness is shattered by problems in love. Rose quartz promotes healthy romantic relationships, allows you clarity of judgment when viewing other people, and can even make you love yourself. For self-loathing, and especially for ill moods due to poor romantic outlook, use rose quartz to start healing.

3. Quartz

Quartz is a panacea among crystals, used for its powerful purifying effects. The purity of this crystal destroys all negative energy around it and stores positive intentions, thoughts, and other important vibrations. It helps clear your mind, and allows you to focus with renewed inspiration on the most positive aspects of your life.

4. Onyx

Onyx works similarly to quartz, but instead of dispelling negative energy, it absorbs it. Onyx has the incredibly power to change this negative energy into lucky, fruitful energy that can turn bad situations into blessings. Use onyx to eliminate lingering ailments or negative thoughts and to make the most out of unhealthy situations.

5. Amethyst

If things beyond your control bring you anxiety or sadness, amethyst is often used to regain balance. Coming to terms with your abilities and overcoming grief are never easy, but amethysts emit a calming aura which centers us. By allowing us to regain clarity, self-confidence and peace, you can trust amethyst to brighten even your darkest times.

6. Fluorite

Are you struggling to find purpose in your life? Are you unable to focus on what’s really important? Fluorite helps bring us back to reality with newfound clarity and vision after a long time of searching. Fluorite can help artists and other introspective types from bouts of doubt and lack of inspiration.

7. Jade

Jade is as beautiful as it is a powerful healing tool. Wearing jade will contribute to your mental clarity, emotional calm, and physical well-being. Wearers will find themselves more patient, more open to new ideas and feeling as though their bodies had been detoxified.

8. Citrine

It is a yellow stone that reflects & refracts bright lights bringing abundant happiness to the wearer. If you’ve ever been envious of children with their carefree attitudes and lust for life, citrine can help you relive those days again. This motivational crystal empowers you both mentally and physically, giving you that “I can take over the world!” feeling all over again. Lack of energy will never be a problem with citrine.

9. Lapis Lazuli

Lapis lazuli is a stone fit for a king, which makes sense because it can give you a kingly sense of wisdom and grace. If you suffer from social anxiety, lapis lazuli will help you find clarity, gain confidence and find the proper way to approach every tricky situation.

10. Tiger Eye

Similar to lapis lazuli, tiger eye gives you an inner strength and confidence that radiates outward, altering your perspective. Specifically, you’re better equipped to deal with confrontation and unexpected negative energy and will find yourself shrugging off instances which in the past would have ruined your whole day.

Now that you have a better understanding of the best crystals for positive energy and happiness, feel free to mix and match them as you please, or choose just one that best suits your needs. When choosing crystals at the store, always go with your intuition and remember to cleanse them once you get home.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
