Does your space have bad energy?
Living spaces can hold energy, retaining the vibrations of people who have come and gone before you. People have reported feeling cold spots, unsettling feelings or haunted vibes. Sometimes the dark forces feel obvious. Other times you might not even know they exist yet they negatively influence your mood.

Instructions for Clearing the Home:
Move the salt into the house first as this will bring good luck for your stay.
Circle around each room of the house holding your lit sage or incense. Sweep the sage or incense smoke in a clockwise motion around each room. This is called smudging.
After you have smudged the whole house, take your Quartz wand and point the tip towards the corner of each room. Move the wand in a clockwise circle around each wall. Do this to every single corner of every single room of your home.
Point the Quartz wand at every window and move the tip in a counterclockwise motion, thanking the universe for barring out intruders.
Do the same with your wand at the front door, thanking the universe for allowing only those with good intentions to enter.
Sprinkle salt in any dark corners or areas that need extra cleansing and place protection stones like Jet or Obsidian in each corner of the house.
Light a candle surrounded by pink crystals at the center of the home for love, friendship and strong relationships.
- Remove the salt and protection stones after a few days or when you feel the house has been cleared.
What do you say when smudging a house?
Smudging is the act of clearing a space with smoke. Sage is a popular method to use by healers. Personally, we prefer incense. You can choose your herb of choice to smudge your space.
As to what you say, you want to keep it positive and firm. Here are some examples which you can adapt to your own words:
"Thank you for my new space where only positive people enter"
"Thank you for only bringing me friendly visitors"
"Thank you for a space full of love, light, and happiness"

Filling your Home with Crystals, Feng Shui Style
Now that you have cleared your new home or space, where do the crystals go? Take a look at this Feng Shui energy map, also known as a Bagua map.Imagine you are standing in the front door or opening to your space. Look in. You can see all the different areas that represent the different Feng Shui hot spots of your room.
Place the appropriate crystals in the appropriate spots. Make sure that you have energetically programmed your crystals for the intention you wish it to serve.
How do you use crystals for Feng Shui?
Now that you have the Bagua map in mind, you can match up your crystals as you see fit. Here is a beginners guide to get you started.
Let's go through each of the 9 spaces and match them up with the best Feng Shui crystals:
1. Wealth & Prosperity
Starting from the top corner of your space as you look in, you have the exciting prospect of riches and financial flow. Use Aventurine, the stone of abundance, to adorn this spot of the room. Aventurine pyramids are all about attracting your manifested desires, hence make an ideal pick.
2. Fame & Reputation
Next, you have the area dedicated to how people see you. You want to be perceived in a positive light. That starts with expelling petty emotions like jealousy and shame and enhancing your self-confidence. Place Citrine in this space. Citrine tumbled stones make bright reminders to let your inner light shine.
3. Marriage & Relationships
In the far right corner, you concentrate on loving relationships. For healthy relationships, you want to be an open-minded and an equal partner in marriage, friendships, and budding romances. Choose the perfect Rose Quartz crystal to place in this area. Rose Quartz hearts activate your Heart chakra and let the love flow freely.
4. New Beginnings & Family
This space is all about the changes in your life. Whether you are starting over in career, home, lifestyle or relationship, you want a smooth transition. This is also where you strengthen your family ties. For this Feng Shui area, you want to choose Moonstone. Moonstone eggs connect with the lunar cycles and are all about enhancing new beginnings.
Smack dab in the middle of your Feng Shui map is the crux of it all: your health. When your health is in a balanced state, you are full of 'life energy'. Make sure to place Garnet in the center of your space. Garnet spheres are perfect in emanating healing energy equally throughout your room.
6. Children, Joy & Future
What are all of the upcoming things you are looking forward to? It's always motivating to have something fun on the horizon. Younger generations symbolize this fresh energy of joy and happiness. Whether you have children in your space or not, harness the cheerful innocence of youth with sunny Golden Calcite spheres. These bright spheres are just what you need to put a smile on your face and a twinkle in your eye.
7. Knowledge & Growth
Coming to our bottom tier of the Feng Shui map, you have an area dedicated to your personal growth. You are constantly learning, whether it is through books, life lessons, or vicariously through the experiences of others. Instead of getting stuck making the same mistakes over and over again, place Sodalite in your Knowledge area. Learn your lessons the first time around. Sodalite crystal towers are the beacon of wisdom.
8. Career & Life Path
You want to be a trailblazer when it comes to your journey through life. Whatever you are pursuing, let it be worthwhile by focusing on being the best you can be. In this area, you want to place Carnelian stones. A Carnelian polished stone goes a long way in directing you on a fulfilling career path and a meaningful life way.
9. Travel & Spirituality
Lastly, you have an area that addresses your wanderlust. Whether you are physically traveling to another country or metaphysically astral traveling to another dimension, you want to make sure that your journey is safe and protected. Here you should place Jet stones. Not only is the name is befitting of travel, but Jet is also known as a traveler's stone of protection.

How big do crystals need to be?
A lot of people wonder if the size of their stones matter when choosing them to place around the home. The answer is Yes!
You want the size of your crystal to make sense in your space. For example, if you have a small dining table, you don't want a cluster so big that it crams up your eating space. If you have a large living room, you don't want a crystal ball so small that it disappears out of notice.
Use common sense when choosing the size of your crystal for your space. You want the crystals to enhance your space rather than being so big that they engulf everything or so small that they get lost.
