Solar Meditation

The sun has been prayed to, worshiped and adored for thousands of years. It is the center of our lives on earth and we would not exist without it!  What better way to start your day by offering your intention outward to the Universe or with the last rays of the setting sun in the evening to give thanks.

Here is a wonderful meditation you can perform with a citrine stone and the morning or evening rays of the sun!  Read more

Our Center of Strength

Because of its matrix of iron and quartz, it is most effective the Solar Plexus Chakra. The grounding abilities of citrine help to alleviate anxiety, as the more orange encourages creative flow and sexual arousal, where the more yellow citrine has a soothing affect on the digestive system.

Citrine energizes every level of the aura, cleansing and balancing the subtle bodies as it aligns it with the physical body.

This stone can often be found with amethyst, as the colors can occur together in the same crystal. These unique gems are called ametrine.

Cleansing & Charging Citrine

~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.

~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy.  A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.

Crystal Cleansing: method 1 – 8
Please note: Citrine is one crystal which never has to be cleansed of (negative) energy. With that said, it never hurts to get the dust off!

The Power of Color

Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you.  A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality.  It contributes in what attracts you to it.  The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
