aceted crystals come in many different shapes, and even different colors. For use in Feng Shui, however, a clear, colorless faceted ball is the best choice. A faceted Crystal ball tied with red string is potent enough to maneuver and enhance chi wherever it is placed. Red is the most auspicious and powerful color in Feng Shui, as it represents the activation energy of the fire element. The string should also be cut in increments of nine inches, since nine is a potent number in Feng Shui, and it represents maximum power. Completely round crystals are better than prism-shaped or geometric crystals, since they allow the chi to travel equally around the sphere and into the entire room.
Crystals are used to add new energy to a space and to redirect energy in a more beneficial direction. They possess healing qualities and harness the positive energy of nature, protecting you from chaotic and negative energy. They also harmonize flows of energy, protect you by diffusing poison arrows and attract good energy to a location. It uses the principle of light deflection in a simple, practical and effective manner to create big changes in energy. When light sources hit the "leaded" faceted spheres, prismatic rainbows scatter beautifully through your space to add new energy to your space, filter off bad energy, harmonize chaotic flows of energy, protect you from poison arrows by diffusing such energy flow, empower visualization practices and attract good energy to a location.
It is best to cleanse the crystals when you first buy or receive them as a gift. Cleansing your crystals resets their vibration to be receptive to their new owner and the new home.
There are many methods for cleansing crystals, some more elaborate than others. Hold your crystal under a stream of warm, clear running water. Submerge them in an earthen container with several teaspoons of sea salt. Rinse and wipe with a soft cloth. Crystals should be cleansed regularly.
Hang a crystal from the ceiling midway in long narrow hallways, especially those with many doors.
Hang a crystal over the bottom step of a staircase that ends directly in front of a doorway. This will keep the positive chi from flowing directly upstairs.
When a door is directly in line with a bed, desk, chair, or a place you spend a lot of time, hang the crystal between the door and, bed or chair so chi will slow down.
Hang a faceted crystal over the toilet of the bathroom, if it is situated over your front door or over the kitchen.
If you have a clear pathway from your front door to your back door, hang a crystal from the ceiling midway between the two doors.
To create a greater and smoother energy flow place a crystal in a window allowing sunlight to pass through, activating the chi in a gentle, yet powerful way.
Beneath a ceiling fan over your bed (or other key location, such as the dining table), hang a crystal to protect against "cutting" chi from the fans blades.
Since crystals are wonderful symbols of the earth element, hang the faceted crystal ball in the Southwest corner to energize your romance luck or in the Northeast to enhance education and knowledge energy. Use two faceted crystals in the Love & Marriage Gua of the Bagua to enhance the “couple” energy with a pair. They provide a great enhancement for the 8 Earth Prosperity star when applying Flying Star Feng Shui.
