CRYSTALS AT HOME: DIY CRYSTAL ALTAR

Create a corner of high vibrations to soothe your soul...

 

Visualise: twinkling candles, chunks of wise old crystals, oxygen-giving plant babies, an ambient light of a Himalayan salt lamp… and time set aside for all things you and your favourite things. Sounds good?

 

It sure does… And if beautifully prepared in a sweet spot of your home, to be cherished on a glance in the morning or during an intentional time set aside – a healing altar is an absolute pleasure to assemble!

WHAT CATCHES YOUR EYE?

Here’s your first sign. If you were honest, would you shout a big “hell yes!” to the fact crystals lured you in by their outer beauty? They’re pretty good at it aren’t they?!

WHAT IS A CRYSTAL ALTAR?

Similar to religious altars, a healing or crystal altar is a space for mindful moments, meditation rituals and manifestation or visualisation sessions you have with yourself from time to time.

But above that, it's a pleasant corner of energy amplification.

HOW TO CREATE YOUR HEALING CORNER?

Think of a place in your home which is currently unused or under-utilised. Once you find the perfect space – which could be a small table, night stand or even a shelf – think: what do you personally enjoy?


That’s the trick! The essence to anything we do, is to create spaces which suit us, as unique and individual as we are, to enable us to thrive in all the ways we seek.

 

Perhaps you’re not so much into yoga or candles, but you’d spend hours hunting for top-quality incense and crystal carved animals. Or you’re rather a crystal fanatic with a love for nature and art.

 

Your personal altar will be different from everybody else’s, and that’s the point.

CAN I CHANGE MY ALTAR OVER TIME?

Your healing altar might go through transitions, which may change with seasons of the Earth, seasons of emotions, new chapters, change of goals, unexplained energy pulls and your heart’s desires.

Now it’s your turn, what would you place on your personal corner of healing?

That tool becomes your personal cheerleader. A special piece of universe in the palm of your hand, on your bedside table or on your neck. It becomes a piece of intention, a lively living being bouncing off energies, transforming them all the while. It’s the nudge you like receiving, a reminder of that which you desire and that which you’re becoming.

A talisman of promise and healing, you could say.
