I’m not much of a Chrystal person, I mean they are in my house and sometimes I will hold them to get whatever benefits I have been told that they offer. However you won’t find me walking around with a quartz crystal in my pocket at all times unless I really need it. But I have realized the subtle help and benefits form them.

I have a few crystals that I love and I think are very important and helps me clear negative energy, like black tourmaline or add positive energy, like the crystal that we are talking about today.

Citrine is part of the quartz family. Quartz is known for absorbing and releasing energy and is a very powerful crystal, which is why quartz is one of the most common crystals for overall healing. Citrine has much of the same benefits as quarts however because of the color, minerals and hardness it not only absorbs and releases energy it also returns energy.

Benefits of citrine

One of the main reasons why citrine is such an amazing crystal and should be in your possession at all times is because it works on all different levels of your existence. It helps in the spiritual, mental, emotional and material aspects of ones life.

What citrine benefits: Happiness, Prosperity, Generosity, Creativity, Pleasure, Protection, Strength, Alignment, Confidence, Stability, Moderation, Energy, Comfort, Success, Truth, Goodness, Warmth, Digestion, Assimilation, Enjoyment of life, Spiritual growth

So as you can see it touches on just about everything.

As it goes for most crystals, citrine works with certain chakras in the body to help redirect energy and refocus thinking. The reason why citrine helps in so many areas is because of it’s association and effects on several chakra points in the body.

Chakras effected: Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra and the Crown Chakra

This makes sense as the Sacral chakra (lower) is connected to base, material gain and survival. The Solar Plexus (central) is responsible for self esteem, warrior power and the power of transformation (ability to manifest) and the Crown Chakra (upper), which connects self or the me to the I or the higher conscious and is the point of spirituality. So this crystal is very balanced.

Care For Tourmaline

Most crystals can discharge after a while of using, especially crystals that trap or take away negative energy or thinking. Citrine when overloaded will usually have subtle changes in color or become a bit foggy. This is not a big deal and you will not get that color back. But this is its nature. Also, citrine is a very loyal stone in the sense that it does not get lost easily and stays with a person for a very long time.

Some say that they had believed their citrine to be lost, only to find it when they need it the most in their lives.

How to cleanse and recharge your citrine crystal

There are 2 ways to recharge your citrine crystal. Water is one of the best way for cleansing your crystal, especially citrine. The water helps to wash away anything negative that may have been associated with the crystal. The best is to put it in a running spring or if that is not available then you can run tap water over it for about 1 minute.
