Most likely, you’ve heard of this gorgeous transparent crystal, but what is it exactly and how can we properly take advantage of all the healing properties it has to offer? In this article, we’ll discuss what makes Clear Quartz such a sought-after stone, how it affects us, and the various ways in which we can harness its energy to our physical as well as spiritual benefit.
What is Clear Quartz?
Clear quartz is a crystalline mineral composed of silicon and oxygen which can be found all over the world but most commonly in the United States and Brazil. Otherwise known as the “master healer”, clear quartz cleanses, purifies, and balances the energy within us as well as the energy around us. It aligns the chakras and amplifies the healing properties of any stone it is paired with. It enhances energy and refines the thinking process while stabilizing emotions and providing harmony within relationships, the self, and the mind. Clear quartz properties promote concentration, memory, and psychic ability. This powerful healing stone boosts the immune system while simultaneously bridging the gap between the mental and physical states. Keep this stone near at all times to promote clarity and ease stress.
How Clear Quartz Affects Us
Before we can properly benefit from a crystal, we must first understand what areas of the body and mind they relate to best, as well as how they affect us. Each healing crystal has its correlations to the zodiac, the planets, and their chakras, each affecting us in different ways, depending on their and our characteristics. Listed below are the astrological, metaphysical, and spiritual aspects of Clear Quartz.
Although Clear Quartz doesn’t relate to anyone specific zodiac, this only means that its properties are suited to all the birth months. This versatile healing stone addresses and corresponds to most of the characteristics that fall under any zodiac sign and it can be paired with virtually anything. Whatever your sign, this stone will help to keep your head clear while providing a deeper connection to the divine.
It may not be immediately obvious that this particular healing stone’s corresponding planet is the Sun, but although Clear Quartz is transparent in color, it harnesses all the brightness and life-giving energies of this fiery giant. Just as you’d associate our sun with health, vitality, and warmth, this stone provides all that and more. Clear quartz helps the seeker to find inner peace, healing, and a more profound connection with his or her spirituality. Meditate with or wear this stone to fully harness its powerful healing energy.
Vibration Number: 4
In numerology, each number or combination of numbers corresponds to a particular energetic vibration. Every crystal and healing stone has a vibrational frequency that is unique to its structure, shape, size, and color. This number determines the level at which the stone itself vibrates energetically and therefore how it responds to different areas of our being. Clear quartz vibrates energetically at level 4 which represents stability and progress. This is the perfect stone for those who are always on a quest or adventure.
In spiritual healing, the Crown chakra is associated with the higher self and spiritual ascension. In much the same way as you’d imagine a crown sitting atop your head, this stone represents a higher level of consciousness and wisdom. It provides the wearer all the necessary tools for introspection and self-work and is a stone of growth and enlightenment. Clear Quartz opens the mind, body, and soul-making one more receptive to healing and knowledge on all levels. Meditate with this stone atop our head to open up the crown chakra.
Clear Quartz Healing Properties for Specific Intentions
Clear quartz has the ability to dispel negativity as well as clearing out blockages in all aspects of the self. It is the bringer of light, life, and love and provides the wearer with strong protective energies. Some practitioners would include this stone in their craft to add protection as well as amplification of their intentions. You may keep this stone in your pocket, on your altar, or at the entrance of your home. It can also be incorporated into jewelry to keep its energy nearer to yourself.
In the same way that clear quartz banishes negative energies, it also releases it, making it the perfect cleansing stone. It can be kept on your person, in the home, or within our crystal collection to provide a natural cleansing effect. If you’re into cleansing with water, you may also put this stone into a moon water bowl or in a spray bottle.
Even with its many spiritual and physical uses, we often forget that clear quartz can be used in other aspects of healing. If you’re looking to harmonize your relationships with others and yourself, you may incorporate the use of clear quartz in your daily practices while focusing on the intention of drawing universal love into your life. You may also go a step further and pair it with Carnelian for passion or with Rose Quartz for unconditional love. Meditate with this crystal near your chest to open up the heart chakra and become receptive to love.
For Mental Clarity
With everything going on in our daily lives, it’s easy for the mind to become cluttered and chaotic which makes it difficult to focus and process our feelings more effectively. Clear quartz provides a stable thought process as well as mental clarity, allowing you to properly identify the areas of your being which are most in need of healing. The properties of clear quartz support mental clarity and stability – all the attributes necessary for a healthy mind. Meditate with this stone surrounding your person or while holding it in your hand. You can even keep it near your chest to steady your breathing and ease anxiety.
For Physical Health
Healing stones affect not only the mind but also the body and it’s important to remember to address these areas while using crystals in your meditative practices. Clear quartz healing properties promote a healthy immune system, protecting the wearer against common ailments such as cold and flu. It also makes recovery faster and easier. If you’re beginning to feel unwell, implement this crystal into your spiritual therapy sessions and you’ll notice the results in no time.
Cleansing and Charging your Clear Quartz
Every person who has handled a crystal has involuntarily made an energetic impression upon it, which will in turn be inevitably passed on to you. So even though this stone cleanses and charges itself, and unless you’ve personally mined for it and it has come directly from the earth, it’s important to cleanse and charge it yourself. One of the simpler ways to cleanse clear quartz is by giving it a bath in either regular water or moon water and then leaving it out in sunlight for anywhere between three hours to three days. Like most other healing crystals, it can also be paired with selenite to cleanse, charge and amplify its energies. You can even go a step further and repeat the process of cleansing in a water bath that’s been left under moonlight and then follow up with drying them in the sun. After each time you’ve cleansed your crystal, it’s also important to form a bond between yourself and the stone. Bonding with your clear quartz crystal is quite simple. In the same way that healing stones lend energy, they also absorb it so in order to make a stone your own, simply hold in your hands, meditate with it and wear or carry it often. This imprints your energy on the stone, forming a bond that allows for smooth communication between the crystal and the wearer.
Clear Quartz and its Compatibility with other Crystals
