Citrine: The stone of the sun
Citrine is a beautiful crystal that is often associated with its bright yellow color. However, many people are unaware that citrine is actually a heat-treated purple amethyst. This industrial process turns amethyst into the bright yellow citrine we all know and love. Natural citrine does exist, but its color is much softer and its energy lighter.
Despite the difference in color, heat-treated citrine and natural citrine have similar chemical compositions and structures. They are trigonal crystals that grow into points, contain silicon dioxide with iron impurities and are yellow in color. The main difference between the two is their energy. Natural citrine has a more subtle energy that brings contentment and bliss, while heat-treated citrine has a fiery energy that inspires joy and happiness.
Citrine is known as the stone of the solidified sun because it brings joy and happiness into our lives. It is often used for abundance and prosperity, along with other green crystals such as jade, turquoise, copper pyrite and coal pyrite. Citrine is especially effective when we need to relax and let go of our desperation for money.
One way to use citrine is to wear it as a ring on our receptive hand, where the money enters. We can also place a piece of citrine near a cash register, computer or laptop to attract abundance and prosperity. Another effective way to use citrine is to do a ritual with a small citrine, bergamot essential oil and the highest banknote we have in our possession. We can visualize the currency and money we want to see, infuse that energy into the citrine and bill, anoint them with bergamot essential oil and put them in our wallet or purse. This ritual sends out energies of abundance and attracts good times in our lives.
Citrine is also effective for working on the solar plexus chakra, located at the base of the sternum. This chakra governs our personal power, and when it is underactive, we tend to allow others to assert their power over us. When it is overactive, we tend to assert our power over others. The fiery energy of citrine can help balance this chakra and change our behavior.
We can also use citrine for digestion problems by placing a tumbled crystal on our belly and massaging it with bergamot or digestive essential oils such as fennel or peppermint. The rising energy of citrine helps us to relax and appreciate the sweetness of life, just like the hummingbird, whose teachings encourage us to do the same.
Before working with citrine, it is advisable to cleanse it. However, citrine is one of the few crystals that does not seem to need cleansing. It does not absorb any energy that is not its own, which makes it an excellent crystal to have in the home. We can place citrine in bedrooms, near cash registers or in places where we want to lift spirits and bring happy, joyful energy.
In conclusion, citrine is a beautiful crystal with fiery energy that brings joy and happiness into our lives. It is effective for abundance and prosperity, balancing the solar plexus chakra and improving digestion. We can use citrine by wearing it, performing rituals, meditating with it and working with it in massage. The positive energy of citrine helps us to relax and enjoy the sweetness of life, just like the hummingbird. So let's work with citrine and bring more joy and happiness into our lives.
