Spiritual Meaning of The Citrine Crystal
When you are drawn to the Citrine crystal, it means you crave more joy and energy in your life. This is the ultimate happiness stone!
The Citrine is packed with power because it represents solar or sun energy, which is endlessly renewable. This is why the Citrine never needs cleansing. It is like holding a tiny piece of the sun in your hand!
This yellow crystal tends to draw your attention, when you are ready to radiate more positivity. It helps reverse self-destructive behaviors and negative patterns of thinking.
What Are the Properties of The Citrine Crystal?
Citrine is a form of crystalline quartz, similar to amethyst. Mining yields very little Citrine, which is why the vast majority of Citrine on the market today is produced by applying heat – at source in the mine – to smoky quartz (which produces light to medium shades of yellow Citrine) and amethyst (which produces a more orangey-red shade of Citrine).
Virtually all natural sources of Citrine come from Brazil, although some is also found in Bolivia, Congo, Madagascar, Russia, and Mexico.
Citrine has become a popular gem in the jewelry industry in recent years. The deeper the yellow of a Citrine, the more expensive it tends to be. The less intense the color, the cheaper it is, with pale or smoky stones at the lowest end.
Smoky Citrine and Smoky Citrine Herkimer are two types of Citrines. Smoky Citrines are sometimes used in shaman and witchcraft rituals to enhance extrasensory perception (ESP) abilities such as clairvoyance and clairaudience. Smoky stones are particularly good at lifting the veil between realms, helping to clear vows from past lives, particularly the vow of poverty and chastity.
3 Keys Benefits of Citrine Crystal
What powers does Citrine have? What is Citrine good for?
1. Absorbs Negative Energy
When you wear Citrine close to your skin as jewelry, it absorbs negative energy directly from your body. It also helps to heal tension or arguments with your partner, which is why it makes a lovely engagement ring. This crystal can also heal tension within the family when you leave a large Citrine in the main living room of the home. For extra impact, use in combination with Green Fluorite crystal.
2. Promotes Positivity
Wear this stone to help you feel more positive about the future. It is also a wonderful spiritual tool for self healing, and learning self-compassion and self-kindness, all aspects of positive thinking. It is also beneficial for improving your feelings of self-confidence and self-worth.
Note: Wear a Citrine as a ring or bracelet to tap into this powerful benefit.
3. Attract Abundance
This stone is excellent for attracting abundance, in particular, good fortune in money and property. Place a Citrine in the ‘wealth’ corner of your home. Using Feng Shui bagua principles, the wealth corner of your home is the furthest left corner of your front door, or bedroom door.
Standing at your door, as you enter your house or bedroom, look to your left and then place your Citrine at the furthest corner on your left. Place the crystal on the floor or a piece of furniture, ideally the larger the crystal, the better.
Where Should I Put a Citrine?
If you want the Citrine to improve your mood and banish negative energy, then wear it as a piece of jewelry. Alternatively, hold your crystal in your hand for a few seconds every morning to begin your day with a positive mindset. Hold your crystal again in the evening to dispel any negative energy you picked up during the day. This is particularly useful if you are sensitive and prone to absorbing other people’s energy, or you share an office with other people or deal with the public in your job.
Please note: Unlike most crystals, Citrine never needs cleaning or leaving in the sun or moonlight to recharge. It simply refuses to accept negative energy and continues to burn brightly.
