Ask Charla: 7 Benefits of Crystals to Enhance Your Life

Posted on May 10, 2017

4. Crystals can Activate Your Third Eye

Using crystals to activate your third eye is very similar to using crystals for divination, but this is a very specific benefit of crystals that you want to be very careful when you work with. There is a saying, be careful what you wish for, and if you use crystals to open your third eye, or create more third eye activation energy in your life, then you need to prepare yourself for the truths that you will discover.

Mental note from personal experience, you won′t always like what you see. That′s why this benefit although it can be a very useful one, should be used wisely. Use it when you need it, don′t turn to crystals for answers all the time. Use them to activate the third eye to make decision making so much easier.

Remember to use crystals wisely and always with the purest intent. The closer your gem is to indigo or violet the more successful you will be. Place the crystal on your third eye, the spot between your two eyes on your forehead, and lie down and meditate for as long as you have to enjoy this pleasant experience.

This meditation will activate the third eye, and once you are finished, the third eye will stay open throughout the day so long as it is nurtured with love and pure intentions. Anything less? Puts that third eye right back to sleep. Use it wisely!

5. Use Crystals for Protection

Crystals have long been known to be used for protection for centuries. So to say they do not carry these properties is preposterous. This is one of those benefits of crystals that you will not see so much as you will be able to feel.

To ensure you activate the protective power of crystals what you want to do is again, always remember the pure and loving intent that goes with every use of crystals. The kind of crystals that you use in this regard are not as important as that you choose crystals that make you feel good. Is it possible to feel safe around a crystal? Absolutely.

When you are at the store or online ordering, and there is one that catches your eye, there′s a reason for that. I always say that you will be attracted to a crystal for a reason. If a particular stone jumps out at you while you are looking, that′s the one you should use to help protect you.

Again, you can wear them, put it in our purse, or keep it in your pocket. Wherever and whenever you want protection, put a crystal there and this sets the intention that you want and need protection provided by the universe.

6. Crystals can Attract More Money

Is it possible that just by putting a crystal or rock somewhere in your house will attract money? It definitely sounds ridiculous when you put it like that, but all joking aside, this can actually happen! The stones that are gold, which is the color of abundance, are the stones that you want in your home if you are hoping to use crystals to attract money.

Remember that the intentions need to be pure, this is the only way this is going to work. So if you think that just putting topaz or citrine in your living room is going to be the universe′s cue to give you the winning lotto numbers, think again. You still have to do what the universe wants you to do in order to supply your human needs, and for most people, that means working for a living.

You might not be able to give it all up for a life of leisure, but you will find easier ways to attract the abundance you truly deserve by harnessing a little bit of extra crystal power in your life.

7. Use Crystals to Make Tea

Now, of course, you can not eat a spirit quartz or a beautiful rose quartz. They are pretty, but also inedible. What you can do is infuse their energy into a homemade tea. I have heard some people refer to this as “fairy tea”, because it is created out of the materials of the Earth, and steeped in water to enjoy its miracles when it is ready.

You want the tea to be as clean and clear as possible. Here′s how you do it. Use a pitcher of water. Clear quartz crystal is the best gem to use with this, but you can use whatever crystal you want, to harness the specific properties of that crystal.

Put the gems in the pitcher of water, and add some sliced fruit of your choice, and some flower petals of your choice as well. Cover and store for at least 24 hours, but not longer than 48 due to the fruit. After 24 hours, strain out everything, so you just have the mineral infused water, and enjoy!


The variety of crystals and stones out there and their uses are as diverse as the people that use them. You can use them to attract love, money, insights, they can even help you be more focused at work. As you develop your knowledge of crystals, you will understand which you should use for particular purposes.

Give crystals a try and see how they can improve your everyday life? What benefits of crystals do you already experience in your life? I can′t wait to find out!

Hi! I’m Charla Stone and I learned astrology and mysticism way back in the 1970s.
