Fun fact! Citrine was known as the “merchant stone,” as it was kept in cash boxes to attract prosperity.
On top of using crystals for my own health and well-being, I also frequently use them on friends and family for reiki-like healing sessions. One of the most common stones I use on the root and sacral chakras is citrine- a beautiful tangerine gemstone which originates from quartz. Citrine is the stone of abundance and success, bringing creativity and prosperity to all of your environments. The energy of citrine is one that is happy, joyful, energetic and vitalizing, on top of being fantastic for your health.
The healing properties of citrine extend to your body, mind, physiological realm, and emotions. If you find yourself feeling heavy and exhausted, meditating with citrine can energize your body and recharge your mind. Citrine also corresponds with the circulation and energy systems, thymus, thyroid, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, bladder, and the the female reproductive system. The stone is obviously versatile in what it promotes, making it my go-to for crystal healing sessions.
In regards to the mind, citrine promotes calmness and enhances your concentration, allowing you to focus on important information and steer away from distractions. I personally find myself holding on to citrine and studying it in times when I feel emotionally lost. There is something truly magical and mysterious about the way citrine works; this stone helps you to unearth the confidence and creative drive that may be hiding deep within you. As someone who is extremely sensitive to criticism, I have found that citrine helps me to respond calmly and constructively. Citrine itself possesses a positive attitude, and if you believe in the stone, that positive energy will seep into you as well.
Piggybacking on the mindfulness of citrine, it can also assist with raising self-esteem and overcoming depression. As an Aries myself who struggled with depression in the past, the correspondence between astrology and metaphysicality is something real and raw in my life. I am a highly sensitive person, and possessing a stone like citrine filters my intense energy into something positive and rich. If you want to know more information about citrine and its metaphysical properties, I highly recommend any book by Judy Hall. As for purchasing citrine yourself, Village Silversmith has wonderful authentic crystals. I’ve been buying from them (I live in New England) for many, many years, and recommend them to anyone who is starting out with crystals.
