Citrine, crystals, and creativity!

One of the things that a lot of people struggle with is creative mojo. Whether you keep losing your motivation or your creative well is dry, crystals can be good creative helpers.

Citrine is a beautiful stone that is yellow to brown in color. Citrine is a great ‘summer’ stone that carries with it the power of the sun. It energizes and enhances creativity, giving you that extra push to create.

One of the best things about Citrine is that it doesn’t need to be cleansed, it transmutes and grounds all negative energies. This makes it a great, protective stone, especially if you work in a negative environment or if you are around negative people. If the people around you are sucking you dry of creativity set citrine pieces around your work area.

Citrine is also a great stone of abundance, it helps you to manifest prosperity and success while also encouraging you to share your amazing gifts and talents. This stone encourages self-expression and individuality in your creativity. It helps you to be bold and beautiful and uniquely you in what you do.

If you have your own business or are thinking of starting a business I can not recommend this stone enough. It will help you foster all of those wonderful qualities that you need to be self-assured in what you are doing.

Here are ways to use citrine:

The easiest way is to carry them around in your pocket or set them around your studio or workspace. You can also get them in the form of jewelry or make them into jewelry. Set them around your home for a specific purpose (research crystal grids!). Sleep with them in your pillow case or add them to your bath.

Hold them while you meditate or sit them on your sacral chakra (the chakra most associated with creativity) to let the crystal’s vibrations work their magic. Chakras are energy centers in the body that correspond to different feelings and workings of the body. Crystals are a great way to align these centers so that energy can flow through your body in a way that it is supposed to, allowing you to embrace your creativity.
