Today is overcast and raining and I was drawn to bring a little sunshine into the day with the beautiful Citrine Sphere.
Citrine is a lovely golden yellow colour and is known as 'The Merchants Stone' as it attracts financial wealth. It is also good for constipation, thyroid issues, bladder infections, diabetes, the female menopause and is said to also aid with digestion. Citrine has the ability to absorb, transmute, dissipate and ground negative energy so never needs cleansing making it an
excellent choice to protect your environment.
Spheres made from crystals have been acknowledged by many old style masters as creating a broad spectrum of good fortune vibrations. Citrine is actually an amethyst, except it has gone through long term heating process naturally. Thus, it had turned yellow from purple. It represent the power of the sun. In feng shui, yellow it the colour of wealth. It is for this reason that citrine has become more highly priced than amethyst. Citrine Gem is a potent symbol of wealth. Citrine creates wealth luck, fortune, prosperity and more pounds in your income. It also has the power to enhance one's self-esteem, amplify
motivation, activates creativity and confidence. The citrine crystal sphere is
best placed in living rooms to bring excellent yang energy and feng shui for
enhancing your wealth and abundance.
Selenite Spheres radiate a vibration of mental clarity, and can be excellent doorways to higher realms, so they can be a point of contact with spiritual
guides and teachers, both those in physical bodies at this time and those whose energies are primarily elsewhere.
Selenite promotes self-expression, sharpens the user's ability to
discriminate between options in life, and to make clear and balanced judgements in matters of business and in disputes of all kinds. Selenite attracts material success.
Selenite has been used as a tool to enable light workers to "see" inside the physical body to determine where energy imbalances and
unhealthy conditions predominate. Selenite has also been used to adjust the energy in the spinal column. Moving the selenite up the spinal column removes energy blockages, and moving the selenite down the spinal column smoothes out energy flow.
Crystal Spheres can be charged with Reiki energy, placed in the sun -- and in moonlight -- for additional energizing, and then placed on an altar or elsewhere in any room to subtly alter the energy in the space.
This is my Clear Quartz Sphere which I use for Meditation.
The Sphere Symbolizes Wholeness
The sphere as a shape is an ancient and universal symbol that represents unity, completeness, infinity - the whole universe. Crystal spheres are often used to increase self awareness and a powerful mind. Closely connected to the spiritual nature of our complete self, crystal spheres help to bring out integrity, clear thinking, and a better union of body, mind and spirit. Whether used for crystal ball gazing (scrying), aura cleansing, meditation, rituals or as adornment to a room, crystal and gemstone spheres radiate special energies that are created from the earth itself!
Unlike the focused energy of a wand or egg shaped crystal, a ball emits energy in all directions equally. These make a useful tool to perceive a complete picture (of self or situations) - moving energy around and through the entire environment.
Using gemstone power
Each stone contains energy that is unique to the type of stone. Getting to know the properties and benefits of thousands of stones can take a lifetime - but is a rewarding and fun adventure. I invite you to study crystals and gemstones, their origins, folklore and current day uses.Explore the meaning of each crystal and get creative with spheres for your specific purposes. You can visit the Crystal Properties Pages to find out more.
A gemstone or crystal sphere can be used during meditation. You may want to hold the sphere or just gaze upon it when meditating.......Karen

The meaning of the crystals drawn in this combination
Guilt or fear holds you to an unsatisfactory obligation, you may believe
there is no way out of an addictive affair, a moral debt, or employment with
little reward. This, however, is merely your perception, not the reality.
Changing the way you look at the world, engaging in new pastimes, perhaps
pursuing some artistic endeavour or hobby, will enable you to gain a clearer
perspective of what is really important. You may find that this is a way of
releasing the tension and stress you feel. This new lease of life could lead to
new opportunities, such as a new relationship, job or a greater sense of
satisfaction in your day to day life…..
