8 Ways to Use a Crystal Point
Sometimes it feels like no matter what we do, all of our energy is spent in vain. Instead of throwing your arms in the air and asking, “What’s the point,” grab hold of a crystal point and use the point. As one of the most versatile and beneficial energy tools a person can own, a crystal point is the perfect ally for when you need to focus and direct energy into your intentions. Not only will it make sure that your energy won’t go to waste, a crystal point will also infuse your space positive vibes. Of course the exact healing properties of a point depends on the type of crystal it is, but every point has one thing in common—it is a powerhouse of energy. With the ability to elevate the energy of all its surroundings, you really want a point at home, at work and wherever a boost of energy is most necessary.
There are many different ways to use your crystal point. You’ll connect more with some crystal rituals than you will with others. Trust your intuition and use your crystal in the way that feels right to you. Heather Askinosie, founder and resident crystal expert at Energy Muse, has come up with her favorite, most effective ways that you can use your crystal points in your home.
Ways to Simply Incorporate Your Crystal Point into Your Life
1. In this "zipper technique" to open up your energy field and breakthrough self-imposed limitations.
This is a crystal technique that Heather created to open up your energy field and expand it out.
- Hold your crystal point over the top of your head, and move the point down the front of your body, all the way to your feet. Visualize yourself unzipping your energy field.
- See yourself opening up your energy field and stepping forward, almost like you’re stepping out of that layer and leaving it behind.
- Bring your crystal to your heart and say out loud what you want to program your new energy field with. Feel the crystal filling your energy field with what you want to move forward and rise up in.
- Lastly, bring your crystal point from the bottom of your feet up to above your head, and zip your energy field back up.
2. As an air purifier for your space.
Adding a crystal point—specifically an Amethyst point, Fluorite point or Clear Quartz point—purifies, clears and cleanses the energy of a room. Your crystal will absorb all the negativity and unwanted energy in your space, replacing it with positivity and light. The energy of your environment will begin to feel different; much lighter and uplifted.
3. To send healing energy to someone.
Has there ever been a time where you have wanted to send healing vibes to a specific person or perhaps a beloved pet? You can use a crystal point to do so! First, find a photograph of the person, or pet, that you want to direct healing energy towards. If they are in a hospital, or at a specific location, write the physical address of the location on the back of your photo. Place your crystal point atop your photography and visualize them being healthy. Your crystal will project your intention outwards, directing it towards their location. We recommend using a Clear Quartz point for this.
4. To attract business abundance.
Heather strongly believes that all business people should have either a Citrine Point or an Amethyst Point on their office desk, as well as somewhere in their business. Citrine is the premier manifestation crystal, helping to bring wealth, success and abundance. Amethyst is believed to bestow a strong business savviness in its owner, helping to achieve financial success. For added abundance energy, place your crystal point atop your business card on your desk. You can even magnify the wealth energy by creating a wealth crystal grid around it.
5. As the center point of a crystal grid.
Using a crystal point atop mandalas, or as the center of crystal grids, magnifies and intensifies the energy of your intention and your entire grid. Handwrite your intention on a small piece of paper and place it underneath the point in the center of your grid. Think of your crystal point directing your focused intention up into the universe, even when you are not thinking about it.
6. For meditation and stress relief.
Meditating with a crystal point in your hands or placed in front of you will help to clear your mind of clutter, stress and anxiety. Amethyst facilitates the releasing of attachments, helping you to let go of the things that are no longer serving you and holding you back. It is connected with the purple ray which is believed to nourish and support you on a cellular level to achieve optimal brain activity. When you are feeling overwhelmed with stress, try sitting with a citrine point. Citrine is said to thin out and lessen the density of your energy field and aura, releasing that feeling of weight on your shoulders.
7. For protection.
Amethyst is said to reflect light and energy at a higher rate than even Quartz Crystal. This is what makes it such a strong protective crystal, as it repels more than it attracts in terms of negativity. Place an amethyst point in your car for protection, or in any space you feel needs extra protection.
8. For setting focused intentions.
Crystal points are the most powerful tool to use for setting intentions and manifesting them into the universe. In your sacred space, set up a space for your crystal points and written intentions. Find a crystal point that meshes well with your intention; when in doubt choose a Quartz crystal point—it will work for your intentions regardless of the subject matter. Hold your crystal point in your hands and visualize your intention, programming your crystal. Write your intention or goals on a small piece of paper, fold it towards yourself and place your crystal point on top of it. Keep it in a place that is sacred to you, and revisit it each day when you are setting your intentions for the day. Your point will continue to project your focused intention into the universe throughout the day, even when you aren’t thinking about it.
