Use the healing energy of clear quartz to restore balance, focus and flow


You will not be surprised to hear that stress is on the top of the list of causes for physical illness, depression, chronic anxiety, and other physical and psychological issues in our modern times.

For those of us that work in fast-paced, competitive environments, unmanaged stress can prove to be especially detrimental for our well-being.

It is imperative to our health to learn how to manage stress and bring the nervous system back into balance. Lucky for you, we have just the complementary tool to help you focus, relax, and drop into presence.



Clear Quartz is a winner in several different areas. It can be a powerful tool when used with clear intention and positive focus, prized for its ability to absorb, store, amplify, and direct energy.

The essential properties of Clear Quartz are
  • Clarity
  • Amplification
  • Energising

It is the main stone used in energy healing and is called the Master Healer for a reason — it is a natural superconductor.

You might already know that quartz is used as an oscillator in quartz watches as a means of keeping precise time. This is thanks to the Piezoelectric Effect, which allows Quartz to transmute mechanical energy into electrical energy, and vice-versa.

What does this mean for you? 

This powerful conductor works on more than just watches. Physics has long since discovered that everything in the physical world is vibrating. Every cell in our body, every thought and emotion emit a certain vibration into the world, that add up to create our unique energy field. We are in constant relationship with the environment through the exchange of vibrational energy. Crystals have been shown to have a complementary positive effect on our systems.


Use this crystal to:

  • Amplify intentions

By “programming” our quartz with an intention coupled with positive emotion, it can channel and amplify this energy tenfold. It will also amplify the energy of other crystals, so in this sense, it is the perfect blank page awaiting your instruction.
  • Clear away negative energy
Excess negative energy is also absorbed by the crystal, making it an excellent cleanser and purifier. This, however, is also why regularly recharging your crystal with positive intentions is central for making sure you’re getting the most out of your crystal companion. 
  • Enhance mental focus
A quality Clear Quartz is especially prized for. It also restores the connection between mind and body, perfect for mindfulness and body-awareness practices. 
  • Restore balance

It is known to revitalise the body by stimulating the immune system and balancing the nervous system — restorative properties all too necessary in our fast-paced society.

It’s important to stress that crystals don’t just sit pretty in the corner and take all your problems away. Intentional interaction with your crystal is what makes the magic happen!




Generally, it is best to choose the crystal that you are naturally drawn to, even if you don’t know why. However, larger pieces do put out a stronger vibration, making them better suited for communal areas where energy tends to get a bit heated or chaotic. Smaller crystals are ideal for your pocket or worn as jewels.



Another aspect to consider when choosing your crystal is the shape — in our gallery clear quartz crystals come in all kinds of forms, ranging from pointed towers and wands, to spheres and even carved statues. They are still the same crystal, but the pattern in which energy emanates from them is different.

Pointed shapes, whether man-made or natural, concentrate and “shoot” the energy out through their tips, making them excellent tools for homing in on and manifesting intentions, improving focus and productivity, as well as directing energy for healing the body.

Rounded shapes, such as crystal balls, have a softer energy that is dispersed out in all directions. Holding a crystal ball in your hands can amplify your meditation or mindfulness practice, and the smooth, cool feeling of it will help you connect to your senses and land in the present moment.



Your Clear Quartz can be placed anywhere you wish to bring more clarity, balance, and calm. In the office, placing it on your desk would be best, as it would simultaneously neutralise background radiation from technology, absorb stressful energy, and assist in keeping your mind and body in a productive flow.

Placing a larger cluster of Clear Quartz in a communal area will naturally uplift and balance the emotional energy in the air, and improve relationships between co-workers or family members.

It is also a good idea to place it where you intend to work on your positive intentions. Perhaps, on your altar, next to an affirmation card or a picture of a deity, or whatever makes you feel good and uplifted! It will store and amplify the positive energy here and help you retain the state of being associated with it. 

Clear Quartz is also known for opening your mental channels for inspiration to flow through, making it perfect for creative professionals.



It’s important to stress that crystals don’t just sit pretty in the corner and take all your problems away. Intentional interaction with your crystal is what makes the magic happen! 

So how can you make the most of your crystal? There are numerous ways to engage with these little power houses. Our top 2 are listed below:


  • Manifestation and embodiment

Crystals are used by many as a manifestation and embodiment tool. Visualise what it is that you want to attract in your life, and the FEELING associated with it. Focus on how you would feel if you already had what you desire, and form this feeling into an affirmation. For example, if getting a promotion would make you feel competent and reliable, your affirmation is “I am competent and reliable”. Embodying the frequency of our desired outcome is the surest way to see your vision come to fruition.

Using your affirmation or favourite prayer, try this meditation technique:

“Sit holding your crystal in your hands, closing your eyes, and taking several slow, deep breaths. Pay attention to your inhale and your exhale, and the pause between breaths, focusing on the physical sensations.

When your body is relaxed, visualise your positive intention. This can be in the form of affirmation or prayer, such as “I am competent and reliable” or “May all beings on Earth know Peace”. Really basking in the positive emotions brought on by your intention, visualise it flowing from your hands directly into the crystal, and filling it up with bright light. Notice the quality of this light — does it have a colour? Does it pulsate? Fill yourself up with the crystal’s light on each inhale, and let it go with each exhale. Spend as much time here as you like.  

Finally, send this light up into the stars, and down to the core of the Earth.
You can use any intuitive visualisation here. Enjoy it.”

This practice re-energises your system and the crystal simultaneously.


  • Mindfulness meditation

Mindfulness practices are amazing effective techniques that empower us to take responsibility for our state of being. Practice allows us to drop into a state of calm, presence, and focus more and more readily. As we train our Inner Observer to catch when our nervous systems or thoughts are going whack, we begin to regulate, accept, and find calm in our feelings.

The energy of Clear Quartz is that of clarity, purification, and re-energising.

Next time you’re feeling overwhelmed, try this simple technique:

 “Sit holding your crystal in your hands, closing your eyes, and taking several slow, deep breaths. Pay attention to your inhale and your exhale, and the pause between breaths, focusing on the physical sensations.

Notice any thoughts or emotions that might be running through you. Observe them neutrally, without trying to edit or criticise. If you are feeling an overwhelming emotion, see if you can feel it in your body, and place your hand on the area. It could come in the form of tension, discomfort, or simply excitement. Be present with the sensations for a while, offering some compassionate words to yourself if it feels right.

Tune in to the energy of the crystal, feel its purifying and energising power. Hold the crystal to the tense place in your body and visualise its energy clearing and restoring your energy back to a peaceful joy with every inhale and sending any negative energy into the Earth with each exhale. Stay here for as long as you like.
To finish off, thank the crystal and, while holding in in your hands, visualise it being cleansed of any energetic debris and restored to its original radiance. 



Although Clear Quartz is a badass at self-regulating and transmuting its own energy, giving it the odd clean won’t hurt. Keeping your Clear Quartz cleansed and charged is the best way to home in on its incredible properties!

Simply place under running water and dry with a clean, soft cloth, or leave in a salt bath over night for a deeper energetic cleanse. You can also use sage, incense or singing bowls to energetically cleanse your crystal.

Remember to charge it regularly with your own positive intentions — the more you will engage with your crystal, the stronger its influence will be.

Just be weary of leaving your crystal out in the sun for too long, as this might cause it to become brittle and crack, eventually.
