When it comes to using stones for their healing properties, people tend to be immediately attracted to the bright and colorful. However, don’t sleep on one of the most powerful stones out there—clear quartz.
Just because it isn’t eye-catching doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have the ability to create dramatic results. You just have to know how to use it… which is why the staff at Chiji is here to help! Let’s talk more about clear quartz healing properties and how you can get them to work for you.
Clear Quartz Basics
Clear quartz may sound unexciting, but it really is anything but. If you were to look into the Earth’s crust, you’d find that quartz is the most abundant mineral found there. Many of the most well-known gemstones out there are actually a form of quartz, like amethyst, agate, and citrine. It is formed inside of igneous rocks (rocks that are formed as magma cools) or in environments that have geothermal waters (water that is heated up by the natural energy from the earth). On a geological level, clear quartz is made up of silicon dioxide.
When it comes to clear quartz healing properties, much of its power comes from its color and shape. Unlike other crystals, which have colors that can correspond to their specific powers and attributes, clear quartz is, well… clear! That means that you are able to fill it with your intentions and use it as you see fit and as you’re drawn to do.
#1) Clear Quartz Healing Properties For Physical Things
Clear quartz healing properties are well documented, which is why it has earned the reputation of being the “master healer.” It is a stone of amplification, perhaps more than any other stone out there, which means that it has the potential to be extremely powerful.
The stone is said to be correlated with the crown chakra. If you’re unfamiliar with what chakras are and how they work, they are the body’s centers of power (on both a physical and metaphysical level). There are seven chakras in the body, starting at the root chakra (at the base of your spine/tailbone) and ending with the crown chakra (at the top of the head). Each energy center controls and relates to a specific area of the body. Each of those energy centers also has a color and a stone that both relates to and activates it.
The crown chakra relates mostly to spiritual and metaphysical issues, but there are certain physical health issues that can be associated with it if it is blocked or cloudy. Certain neurological issues, headaches, insomnia, and depression can stem from the crown chakra but should always be evaluated by a medical professional too.
Some people believe that clear quartz healing properties can extend to all of the chakras, helping to create an overall sense of balance in the body that can carry over to the mind as well. It may be supportive for the immune system, as it can pull toxins out of the body (just like it can do for the mind).
#2) Clear Quartz Healing Properties For Psychic And Spiritual Things
As far as the metaphysical clear quartz healing properties, the majority of them come not from its ability to amplify but in its ability to absorb. It is a blank slate, which means that it can draw off and hold onto negative energy that may be bouncing around you or your space. This also includes things like electromagnetic radiation, which can unknowingly mess with you both physically and emotionally.
However, that doesn’t mean that the stone’s amplification abilities don’t come into play. This is especially true when it comes to people who are interested in learning more about their own psychic abilities and enhancing them. Sitting in quiet meditation with a piece of clear quartz, allowing thoughts to come into your head that you may have previously brushed off, can help you connect better with your own power. Psychic ability may be something that people are born with, but it’s also a lot like a muscle… it needs to be flexed and used in order to get stronger.
Clear quartz is also very helpful for manifestation. When you focus on manifesting things, you essentially are working on thinking them into reality. Holding a piece of clear quartz or keeping it in your meditation space (or even at your desk) can help you unconsciously manifest your dreams. You can even wear it as a piece of jewelry. It’s important to be at least partially aware of what you may be manifesting, though, because sometimes it can be a “be careful because you may get what you wish for” situation.
Many shamans and healers turn to clear quartz as their main healer and have for thousands of years. It is often considered to be a gift from Mother Earth and is thought to attract the people that truly need its gifts. That is true for most crystals, that you find them at the right time and situation, but it is especially true for clear quartz.
#3) Clear Quartz Healing Properties For Mental Things
The clear quartz healing properties are perhaps most on display when it comes to its ability to help to balance your mind out when it is feeling out of control. However, it can also work against you in this regard if you aren’t careful with how you use it… you don’t want to amplify negative emotions instead of working through them.
The same can be said of how clear quartz can help you heal by also helping you to clarify the thoughts that may be bouncing around inside of your head. So much of life can be confusing, and the ability to really sort through them and figure out exactly who you are and where you stand is one of the best ways to really learn to be yourself. That’s how you can set firm boundaries, stand up for yourself, and learn to love and accept yourself as the unique, beautiful human being that you are, both on the outside and on the inside.
There are also people who believe that clear quartz can help people with their concentration, especially when they need it the most. A lot of that is its power of amplification, which is also helpful for focus. In addition, clear quartz can help with your memory. This can be memory as it corresponds with concentration (like for educational purposes) or memories that you’re trying to unlock from your past. It helps to draw them out and hold onto them, and some people think that it is even able to help unlock the memories of past lives and events.
And finally, clear quartz is an excellent stone for people who are hoping to both set and stick with new goals. These can be anything you can imagine… getting a new job, learning to speak up more, or even learning a new hobby like painting or writing. It helps you to be able to clarify what you really want to achieve and then helps you manifest those goals into reality. It can also help you to be able to minimize the distractions that can keep you from really reaching your dreams.
Clear Quartz And Other Crystals
Clear quartz is powerful on its own but perhaps even more powerful when used in combination with other stones. Because of its reputation for being able to amplify and magnify energy, using it to help make other stones stronger is a great idea. This can work in tandem with literally any other gemstones, like the ones we chose for our Peace + Positive Vibes Crystal Set.
The caveat with adding clear quartz to any of your other crystals is that its ability to amplify power can often get out of control. That means you should be absolutely solid about what you’re planning on using it for. If you have any doubt in your mind or you’re unsure about what you really want, the power of the crystal may be too much for you.
This is especially true if you’re working with other powerful crystals, as you can get much more than you bargained for. Be absolutely clear with your intentions, and use your mind to direct its energy. Clear quartz isn’t really a crystal that should be used lightly.
Clear quartz healing properties can be far more powerful than those of its more brightly colored cousins. Don’t be fooled by the often quiet, benign appearance of this stone. When you use it to help you connect with yourself better, to amplify the powers of other stones, and to protect and absorb negative energy, you can take things to a whole new level.
