The practical application of spiritual practices to work is nothing new. Eventually, meditation has evolved into a common spiritual practice among some of the most successful entrepreneurs. But if you want to take your spirituality to the next level, crystals can help elevate your mentality.
As with meditation, there is science behind the energy of crystals. It’s called the piezoelectric effect. Have you ever wondered why watches are sold with a quartz movement? This is because quartz helps the watch tell the time correctly. Quartz is also used in computer and radio components.
Those who doubt should be aware that crystals can also act psychosomatically. The mere desire to perform a crystal ritual, either by setting an intention or by taking a short break from work, can greatly increase your productivity. If you’re an entrepreneur or an employee of a large corporation (and trying to move up the corporate ladder), here are a few gems to keep on your desk and the best ways to use them.
If you are just starting out with crystals and want to keep only one on your desk, then it should be Black Tourmaline. This crystal is especially helpful for people who work in large offices with a lot of different energies. Do you have a colleague nearby who talks loudly on the phone all day? Or, even worse, complaining about you to his boss? It is believed that black tourmaline will protect you from this negative energy.
Black tourmaline also protects against electromagnetic radiation (EMF) that comes from computers, mobile phones, and especially Wi-Fi. These waves can cause stress, anxiety, and fatigue that you don’t want to experience at work. It’s impossible to completely avoid EMF, but keeping the crystal on your desktop is an easy way to reduce its impact. Even a small rock on a laptop can help.
Malachite helps us let go of behaviors and things that no longer serve us. It is a transformer stone that allows fresh ideas to come to the surface. “What could be better in your office than something that keeps you energized and moving forward?”
Are you trying to bring more green into your life? Whether it’s a promotion, a bonus, or a signed contract that will get you more money in the bank, green aventurine will help attract them. This stone is believed to set you up to receive and attract prosperity into your life. It also helps boost creativity and optimism.
Pyrite looks like a huge chunk of gold and can be just as valuable. “Another incredible stone for your office that I often recommend people put on their desktop is pyrite.” “If life coach was a crystal, it would be pyrite. This warrior stone helps motivate you, strengthens your willpower and determination. It displaces negative vibrations and promotes success and prosperity.”
Is there too much going on in your life right now? No matter what clouds your mind, we all know that too much throws us off balance. That’s when smoky quartz comes to the rescue.
Stop what you are doing, take a break and treat yourself to a moment of communion with this stone. Hold the crystal between your palms. Close your eyes. Think about what’s really important and prioritize. Take care of this offer within an hour, and worry about the next week’s meeting later.
Then open your eyes and reboot. Smoky Quartz will help reduce anxiety, stress, and anything else that keeps you from focusing on the task at hand. Now you can move forward in a more down to earth state.
Citrine is a wonderful crystal to include in your morning routine. As you sit down at your table, take the crystal in your hands and set your intentions and goals for the day. Think about what you need to do in the long and short term. It’s time to tune in to the manifestation. Then write it all down. Do it every day.
Communication turns into a nightmare? The team you lead just doesn’t understand what is required of them? If group projects are making your head spin, Amazonite can make a difference. This stone is associated with the heart and throat chakras and will help you re-open lines of communication, making you a more effective leader.
Eye of the Tiger
Do you have a big presentation coming up that makes you nervous? Do you need to feel more confident in your abilities? Keeping a small tiger eye in your pocket will give you the courage you need to succeed.
Selenite is a powerful crystal with many uses. One of them is charging all other crystals. Buy a selenite charging plate for your desk to keep all the other crystals on it. This will also keep your crystal collection neat and organized.
Selenite clears energy, which makes it especially useful in an office with a lot of different people and personalities in one place. You can also combine selenite wand with citrine to help release any financial blockages.
