Crystals for Enhancing Prosperity
By Stephanie Arnold
Waiting for abundance to come knocking on your door? We could all benefit from bringing more abundance into our lives. Take steps today to make this happen by using a proactive approach and allowing crystals to help you to achieve your goals. Using crystals throughout your day will give you the added edge to make your dreams a reality.
An excellent crystal for prosperity is Citrine. According to Feng Shui, this stone will work best when placed in the farthest left corner from the front door to attract wealth to the household. This stone dissolves any negative energy that it absorbs. Because of this characteristic, this stone is exceptional for clearing the chakras too. A stone for those seeking success, Citrine can be worn to help build self-confidence and self-worth. With the energy of the Sun contained in this yellow crystal, Citrine represents the Fire element.
Moss Agate is another stone of wealth that can help you to manifest your dreams. This crystal will attract abundance into your life while also releasing fear and stress, which can have a negative impact on achieving one’s goals. Most people can benefit from the use of Moss Agate, especially because of its ability to stabilize and balance. As its name suggests, this crystal often has markings that resemble moss and it is strongly connected to nature.
A positive stone, Aventurine will help you to recognize the possibilities in your life. Using this stone will bring you good luck and help you to lead prosperity into your life. An additional benefit of this stone is its ability to block electromagnetic and geopathic stress, making it an excellent choice for frequent cell phone users. Simply taping the stone to the back of your cell phone will protect you from the potentially harmful emanations. Keep this stone near to you and reap the positive benefits. Most Aventurine is from Brazil, India and Russia; however it was named after a type of Italian glass discovered around 1700, due to its likeness.
Green Tourmaline, also known as Verdelite, is a magnet for prosperity and abundance. This crystal comes in many different shades of green, including olive and emerald, just as the plants that prosper in its energy. Beneficial to the physical heart and the Heart Chakra, Green Tourmaline promotes life and growth. This healing stone also resonates with the water element. Wearing a Green Tourmaline pendant will not only attract wealth to you, it will also stimulate your creative side.
Another green crystal you can carry with you for abundance is Green Jade. This stone has been used for centuries as a good luck stone and as a talismanic stone, especially by those in the Orient. Placing this crystal on your forehead (over the Third Eye Chakra) while sleeping will bring insightful dreams. This prosperous stone represents purity and, like many other green stones, is helpful to the Heart Chakra as well.
To keep an optimistic outlook, try carrying a piece of Chrysoprase in your pocket. Chrysoprase is a prosperity stone that is also useful in assisting with meditation. This crystal was used by the ancient Greeks as a gemstone over two thousand years ago and, according to these ancient people, this crystal promotes a love of the truth. It is a type of green Chalcedony, and is also one of the rarest and most valuable of this variety of stones. This vibrant green stone can bring you hope, prosperity, joy and health. Because it works well with the Heart Chakra, wearing it over your heart as a pendant will help to heal past hurts in relationships. It can also help you to move past problems to embrace the prosperity you deserve.
A symbol of royal power, Alexandrite can bring wealth and joy into your life. Initially found in Russia in 1830 on Czar Alexander II’s birthday, this crystal took his name and coincidentally is comprised of the same colors as the Russian Imperial Guard, red and green. Prime pieces of Alexandrite are more valuable than diamonds, as it is one of the rarest gemstones on Earth. This stone is helpful to those with low self-respect and strengthens an individual’s willpower and self-importance. Try placing this stone in your wallet to attract wealth and luck to you.
There are many crystals that can help you with a lack of money and prosperity, and help you to turn your life around to enjoy the abundance you deserve. As with all crystals, when searching for the “right” stone for you, I would recommend you compare the different stones and select the one that you are drawn to. Whether the energy of the stone or its appearance call to you, your intuition is the best guide as to which stone will work best for you. Embrace your new prosperity!

Crystals for Beginners
By Crystal Cosmopolitan
Interested in crystals but don’t know where to start? I often come across people who see me wearing crystals and are very drawn to them, but don’t know what to get for themselves. There truly are so many wonderful crystals available these days that it may be hard for a beginner to choose. It is very important to go with your intuition and what feels right to you, but there are a few crystals that are kind of a foundation in terms of their effects on those who haven’t had a lot of experience with crystals. They are Clear Quartz, Amethyst, Smokey Quartz, Rose Quartz, Citrine, and Black Tourmaline.
While most of the crystals can help with a variety of issues, Clear Quartz is considered to be the most universal and also the most influential for beginners. Its effects are easily observable as greater physical energy and a sense of general well-being. By enhancing the personal energy of the wearer, Clear Quartz protects one from the energies of other people and enhances the immune system function. In this way, it assists in healing. Clear Quartz crystals can be “programmable”- which is a term often used to signify that they can hold an intention of the wearer and provide assistance in magnifying the energy of that intention. It is also the crystal to cleanse and recharge other crystals. It needs to be cleansed weekly under running water and recharged under sunshine or on the soil of a healthy plant.
Amethyst attracts a lot of people through its color and its vibrations. The color varies from pale lilac to intense purple, but every type of Amethyst is great for spiritual protection, purification of aura, and balancing the physical, mental and emotional bodies. It assists in meditation and spiritual work, and helps develop intuition. Amethyst is considered extremely beneficial in healing, and it is the premier stone recommended for headaches and addictions. It is calming and relaxing and it increases imagination, inspiration and all forms of creativity. Amethyst should be cleansed under running water for a few minutes and recharged next to a clear quartz crystal or near Hematite. It will change color if exposed to sunlight over a long period of time.
Smokey Quartz is transparent, with color that ranges from very pale tan to dark chocolate brown. This crystal is excellent for relaxation after a stressful day, but is also very grounding and protective, especially in a work environment. It is recommended after a period of illness because it aids in recuperation of personal energies. When used together with Clear Quartz, its energies are increased and it works faster. Some people experience its effects immediately, while some report that they need to carry it for a longer period of time to feel the results. It is reported to aid insomnia and bring peaceful dreams. Clear under running water and recharge next to Clear Quartz or on the soil of a healthy plant.
Rose Quartz is a universal Love stone and when people hear this, they usually get it to attract new love. While this is certainly possible, it is important to note that Rose Quartz primarily works on self-love and self-acceptance by clearing and strengthening the heart and the Heart chakra. It clears blocks and dissolves resentments left over from past experiences so that we may enjoy the present. For some people, this means bringing up unresolved emotions to the surface, so if you experience this, use a grounding crystal such as Black Tourmaline, which will help you to both get to the bottom of the issue and transmute this into a positive experience. Clear under running water and recharge next to Clear Quartz.
Citrine has been known throughout the world and throughout centuries as a stone of luck, self-confidence, and financial prosperity. Often referred to as the “merchant’s stone”, it has been known for attracting business or money to the wearer. Citrine is also a crystal that brings joy and optimistic outlook, as well as self-confidence to the wearer. This stone stimulates the imagination, increasing creativity and clarity of thought. In terms of health, citrine is often used to ease digestive problems and strengthen the Solar Plexus chakra, the seat of our will and personal power. Some crystal writers state that it does not need cleansing, but others believe that it is advisable to cleanse it from time to time under running water.
Black Tourmaline is a universally acknowledged grounding stone and a strong protector from “negative” energies - from cell-phones, microwaves, computers, as well as people. It transmutes negative energies into positive, and shields the wearer by increasing its own electro-magnetic field, so that the negativity is repelled. Some crystal writers refer to Black Tourmaline as an “etheric vacuum cleaner” (Simmons); others praise its ability to clear, purify, and balance all chakras and meridians of the body (Hall), while yet others discuss its ability to offer protection on all levels, from preventing “simple accidents to psychic attack” (Permutt). It is a great mineral to hold when one feels spaced-out, forgetful, or disoriented, as it quickly centers and grounds one in the present moment. It can be cleansed under running water and recharged under sun or on the soil of a healthy plant.

It is always good to remember that crystals work on many levels and that their effects can be experienced differently by different people. They assist us with our issues through their color, their crystalline structure, and their chemical composition. Some people feel an immediate connection with crystals through their physical and emotional reactions, while others notice the changes but do not necessarily feel the energy of the crystal. That is perfectly normal and depends on too many factors to describe now, but the experience of many crystal workers has been that most people do perceive a variety of positive changes after consistent use of crystals over a period of time.
