The wonderful yellow sunshine of the Crystal Citrine is another one of my favourites. They are a variety of quartz and are closely related to Amethyst. The meaning of the name Citrine comes from the Greek word meaning ‘citron’, as many early Citrine crystals found had a colour similar to the citrus fruit of that name.
Citrine is called by two names one is the Sunshine Stone as it brings sunshine into people’s lives when they are feeling down and need a lift and the other is the Merchant Stone as it brings in abundance to your life and is good to use when manifesting.
As it is a quartz it has a strong amplification ability, and most people are aware of the energy emitted by this lovely yellow stone. This helps when it is used in healing as it is a strong but gentle healing stone including strong ability to soothe fear and anxiety. By allowing you to let go of your fear it may aid you to be able to accept into your life the good that is coming your way.
To manifest, the bright heat treated stones are very useful. These days much of the brightly coloured crystals have been created from Amethyst, by a process of heat treatment.
The Citrine properties that are most well known are its value for aiding manifestation of prosperity, particularly if you combine it with the power of affirmations.
I love to use Citrine when I wish to manifest abundance into my life when using Law of Attraction and the universe. Visualisation of what you want, feeling as if you already have it are key to Manifestation working.
The 7 laws of attraction are at work when you are using Citrine crystals. These laws say that in order to attract anything, you need to first imagine it, and Citrine will aid you to boost your imagination. You can learn how to manifest what you desire in your life, including the ability to manifest prosperity including money. A piece of Citrine kept in your purse or wallet is said to ensure that they are never empty. I always have a piece in my purse; it only has to be a small piece that is powerful enough.
Much of the Citrine colour may be a dark orangey colour, and this is an indication of the heat treatment that these stones have gone through. Although some say this is a controversial crystal, this process actually mimics what happens naturally within the earth. If you remember that all stones have been naturally heated during their time within the earth, you know that the heat treatment will not harm them at all.
If you prefer to use natural Citrine, the colour of the natural Citrine may be pale yellow, honey yellow or even with very little colour at all. The natural Citrine is an excellent choice, both for manifestation and healing. Not only is it just as powerful for manifestation, but in addition it will help you to release etheric blockages within your chakras.
This is an exceedingly beneficial stone, that brings through energy to all of the lower three chakras. In addition it will open up the third eye chakra and aid you to think more clearly.
It is an Aries, Libra, Leo and Gemini birthstone.
This energy encourages joy, happiness and hope to flow through you, a beautiful stone to have around you at any time.
