Quartz properties like amplification and programmability, are essential to manifesting intentions. To program the quartz with your intentions, hold it in the palm of your hand, and focus on what you want to transfer into the crystal. The crystal’s memory will download your intentions, and help to manifest those goals through its ability to amplify in the same way it does in technological devices. However, quartz healing properties will amplify any energy surrounding or being put into it, so making sure to occasionally cleanse the stone is important in order to maintain a positive energy.
The quartz properties can connect with and aid all chakras, giving it a reputation as a master healer, it is especially helpful for activating the crown chakra. This chakra controls how we think about and perceive situations. Quartz can help open up the mind and elevate negative perspectives to more a enlightened point of view. Its metaphysical purposes are vast, from helping to expand consciousness to facilitating open communication and stimulating the chakras. For those needing clarity of mind, clear quartz healing properties will eliminate energy blockages and allow energy to flow smoothly throughout the body.
While no zodiac sign has a direct quartz meaning, this crystal has been known to temper the stubbornness of Capricorns and the power lust of Leos. To use this crystal as an element of Feng Shui in the home, place in an area like a window sill. The amplification quality of the quartz will radiate the positive energy pulled in from the sun and the moon into the rest of the room.
For meditating with the quartz, one can either implement their own intentions into a mantra, or use a mantra to solidify the meditation after transferring their intentions into the crystal. A fun mantra to use with quartz is: “I am crystal clear on my intentions and goals.” Repeating this during meditation strengthens the will of your purpose and helps in visualizing your objectives. Lay down, and set the clear quartz on the third eye to establish clarity and ease of flow into in crown chakra.
