Carry them in your pocket 

Obviously, this works best with small crystals. Tumbled (polished to be smooth) crystals also work best. This way, of course, they don't poke into you throughout the day. Crystals have energetic and metaphysical properties: some are good for attracting love and compassion (like rose quartz); some are known for their calming vibes (like blue calcite); and others are said to help with clarity (like amethyst).

How can you use crystals this way? 

It's easy! Simply grab a crystal you are drawn to that day, or choose one based on common crystal properties and carry it in your pocket. Let the crystal remind you throughout the day - when you put your hand in your pocket, or move and feel it there - of your purpose for choosing it and take a moment to remember how you want to feel.

Decorate with them 

Crystals can be used in home décor and home furnishing. Crystals are commonly made into lamps and candle holders - as well as counter tops, end tables, coffee tables, door knobs, sinks, and more. You can find crystal-patterned wall paper, crystal paintings and portraits, and crystal-inspired accents, including throw pillows!

How can you use crystals this way? 

It's easy! Consider using a crystal lamp on your night stands, instead of regular lights. I have salt lamps on my nightstands and love the soft, calming glow they give. Amethyst lamps would be great for this, as well! You might also try adding a large geode to your bathroom counter, for some added sparkle. Or, try an amethyst cathedral to complement your purple-hued walls. Medium-sized crystals can make great accents on a bookshelf or side table. And smaller crystals can even be used in a planter, to add an earthy accent.

Use a crystal to help you focus and relax 

Stop for a second and take a good look at a crystal. Think about how it formed. If it has transparent crystals, look into them: are they watery? “Crystal” clear? Do they have inclusions? Is it flashy? Are there rainbows inside? It’s enough to take you away from whatever you’re dealing with – even for a few moments – and get lost in their uniqueness.

How can you use crystals this way? 

While holding your crystal (if it's small enough) or sitting near it (if it's larger), close your eyes (if you'd like to, and are in a place where you feel comfortable doing so), take a few deep breaths, and really stop to look at your crystal.

Pay attention to the colors, clarity, shape, and structure of the crystal(s). Think about how it came from deep inside the Earth. Take just a few moments (or as long as you'd like) to simply enjoy your crystal and the connect it brings to the Earth, through it's beauty, uniqueness, and energy.
