How To Use A Hanging Crystal For Feng Shui

Faceted crystal balls are a very popular contemporary feng shui cure. Hold one of these lovely objects up to a sunny window or other light source and a multitude of tiny "rainbows" will fill the room. Each little rainbow contains all the colors of the visible spectrum, bringing both vitality and balance to the room.

This ability to split a beam of light and send it radiating in many directions makes faceted crystal balls an ideal protection against "secret arrows" of sha (negative) chi. This feng sui cure also radiates blessings wherever it is placed, and is a powerful magnifier of your intention.

Feng shui crystals are most often hung from the ceiling, in a doorway, or in windows, but they can be used anywhere you want to enhance chi.

Good Places To Use Feng Shui Crystals 

  • In the center of a long, narrow hallway to slow down fast-moving chi
  • In front of any source of "secret arrows," such as a sharp corner or object near where you eat, relax, sleep, or work
  • In front of a large window through which too much chi is escaping
  • In the tai chi (center) of a home or room where energy feels low
  • Directly over your head as you sit at your desk, to inspire mental activity (be aware that this can have an over-stimulating effect for some people; if you feel stressed and scattered, take the crystal down)
    • Beneath a ceiling fan over your bed (or other key location, such as the dining table), to protect against "cutting" chi from the fans blades
    • Anywhere you'd like to activate chi

      For added impact, you can hang your feng shui crystal from a red string or ribbon cut to a multiple of nine inches (9", 18", 27"). The ball can hang any distance from the ceiling; it's the cut length of the string that is important. If you buy crystal balls from a feng shui supplier, they may come with red cord already attached.

      You can also place a faceted crystal ball on a desk, table, or home altar. Wear a little one on a red ribbon around your neck to activate your personal chi, or hang one from the rear-view mirror of your car to enhance, bless, and protect you while you drive.

      Faceted crystals come in many different shapes, and even different colors. A pink heart-shaped crystal, for example, can be a lovely addition to kun gua to encourage romance. For general use, however, or when you need a powerful cure, a colorless faceted ball is usually the best choice.

      Remember to keep your crystal clean as dirt, dust, and fingerprints can also lessen the effectiveness of your cure, so be sure to clean your crystal at least once a year, or more often if necessary. After cleaning, you can take a moment to empower the crystal with your strong intention to protect, bless, or energize the space.
