They can also bolster your confidence and self-esteem to help you start a new friendship.

You can still select attractive stones that go with the decor, but, if you choose from crystals that will help, you will have a truly functional yet attractive piece of decor.
Crystals of all types, shapes and colors have a place in Feng Shui. Consider using bowls of crystals, stone figurines and crystals in natural shapes to balance the energies in your home or office. This is an ancient art utilized for thousands of years to bring supportive, positive, balanced energy to the home or office. It balances Yin and Yang and provides Universal Life Force energies from all of the natural elements that are so integral to a happy, productive life. It isn't absolutely necessary to Feng Shui the whole house or office with crystals. If you only want to do one room, or one room at a time, that's fine, too.

Set a sodalite crystal, bowl of crystals, pyramid or statuette on your desk and near office equipment. It absorbs and clears EMF emissions and improves communication.
CRYSTALS FOR THE BEDROOMS
Place some beautiful crystals in the bedrooms on a bedside table or dresser to dispel negativity and impart restful calm energy. Crystals are available in a huge variety of shapes. If you like animal shapes, get those, or maybe you prefer pyramids and obelisks. Crystals in their natural forms are beautiful, too.
How to use crystals in the bedrooms:
Put a chunk of selenite or turquoise in bedrooms to dispel negative energy and impart calm, peaceful energy.
Set jade crystals or a jade figurine nearby for peace and Divine energy.
Place rose quartz hearts or figurines on the nightstand if you sleep with a partner to encourage a more connected, loving relationship.
CHOOSING CRYSTALS FOR THE HOME
Don't feel as though you must adhere to a certain set of rules when decorating your home with crystals. Listen to your instincts. If you are drawn to an amethyst geode that you can visualize in a certain setting in your home, get it. Most people know instinctively which crystals they need.
