If you are a crystal-lover, you have probably heard of the healing properties of Citrine. It is a gorgeous stone with a bright yellow hue, reminding you of the joys and healing effects of the sun.
It's even been dubbed the crystal that gives you Vitamin C for the soul. But there's a lot more to Citrine than its sunny vibrant energy.
Read on to see what the Citrine Geode is all about and what are the wellness benefits of using it.
The Basics on Citrine Geode
Citrine actually comes from the quartz family and is usually yellowish in hue, seemingly like the sun. But it can also have other colors, such as greenish-yellow, brownish-yellow, or orange.
Interestingly, Citrine is quite rare, much rarer than its crystal cousin, Amethyst, and a lot of Citrine on the market is actually heat-treated Amethyst.
If you know anything about crystals, you know that treating crystals at high temperatures enhances them and can also change their color. It can also remove its flaws. This is called heat treating.
When you heat treat an Amethyst, it changes color and becomes yellow quartz or Citrine.
The brilliant thing about this is that not only does the heat treatment change the color of the gemstone, but it also gives Citrine additional healing powers, by expanding its auric field and burning away any etheric toxins.
Because of this, you don't have to cleanse or recharge Citrines as often as you might have to with other crystals or gemstones. It's able to stay pure and clean, unencumbered by toxic energies for longer!
Citrine is found in several locations around the world, albeit in small quantities, like France, Britain, Russia, Madagascar, Burma, Spain, U.S., and Brazil.
The Many Healing Properties of Citrine
The word 'citrine' comes from the Greek word 'citron' because a lot of the earlier Citrine stones used to resemble the sunny yellow color of citrus fruits.
Let's look at some of the healing properties of citrine in detail below.
Increase Optimism, And Sunny Cheerfulness
There are many reasons to use Citrine in your healing work, but the main one has to be that Citrine brings the sunny cheerfulness and optimism of the sun to you and anyone around you.
It is the gemstone for happiness and good cheer. If you are feeling down and about, or you just want to give yourself a bit of a boost, then get a Citrine Geode and sit with it for a few minutes.
If you want to add a booster shot to that healing, then make sure you are sitting in the sunshine somewhere. You can even add sun gazing to the mix to create a potent mix of healing.
Citrine channels the light-giving power of the sun, which means you can even use it to help your plants grow.
If you live in an apartment that doesn't get a lot of sunshine, you can place Citrine all around to give your house plants a boost.
Not only that, but it will also help you dispel anger. If you are feeling angry about the state of the world or if you feel helpless and powerless, use Citrine to dispel those negative states and bounce back into a positive state.
You already know that it's not good to linger in negative states for too long, as it can depress your immune system and make you more prone to illnesses and fatigue.
Improve Manifesting Skills and Powers
Are you the kind of person who has a hard time taking action? Are you always waiting for some 'better' time in the future to do all those things your heart desires?
One of the main healing properties of Citrine is that it is a manifesting crystal.
Don't get it wrong, though. Using Citrine as a manifesting healing crystal doesn't mean that you can just sit on your bum and not do anything about your dreams and desires. You are going to have to take action, of course!
But it will definitely help you manifest your deepest wants and needs faster and better. And that's something we could all use more of in our lives. Right?
Align All Your Chakras
Everyone on this planet is walking around with misaligned chakras and energy centers. No wonder there is so much suffering on the planet, both real and imagined.
Citrine can help you align all your energy chakras, which is a huge deal. But more than that, it can help you balance your solar plexus chakra.
If you know anything about chakras, you know that the solar plexus chakra is all about taking action, reaching your goals, sticking to your plan, and making things happen. It's the fiery chakra and we all need more of that fire.
Once you balance the solar plexus chakra, you will notice that you will be able to complete your projects with ease and higher motivation. You won't have to force yourself to work on your projects.
More than that, you will also be able to stick to habits easier. You won't fall off the exercise or eating healthy wagon anymore. Your solar plexus chakra will keep you on target.
When you balance out your solar plexus chakra, that also helps you realign your other chakras, so it's an important one to focus on.
Cleanse Your Aura
Due to the heat treating, Citrine has a lot of spiritual energy and light stored within it. That's why it's able to easily and effectively clean out your aura when you sit with it for even a short period of time.
You already know that your aura is like a magnetic or energetic field that picks up on all the negative, positive, and neutral vibrations around you.
If you are an empath or a Highly Sensitive Person, you will be even more sensitive to the energies around you, especially the negative ones.
That's why it's so important to have Citrine on your body or your person, so you can stay protected from all these negative tendencies.
It will help you keep your positive, mental attitude even when you are surrounded by a sea of negativity, hatred, and stress. Just because everyone around you is running around like mad doesn't mean you have to follow.
As the world around you gets more chaotic and insane, you need to take charge of your health, and vibrancy. You can't rely on anyone else to do this for you. And your Citrine Geode is a good partner to help you with that.
Aids Digestion and Improves Mental Clarity
Maybe you've noticed how your mind feels like it's in a complete jumble when your energetic field or aura has been tampered with. And you know how calm and serene you feel when you are positive and cheerful.
The Citrine healing crystal can help you keep your wits about you when everyone around isn't able to do so. It can also help you stay calm and peaceful, which obviously helps in keeping your digestive system healthy.
Stress has great ramifications upon the digestive system, as your body moves all resources to the fight-or-flight system, rather than devoting it to digestion and other non-essential activities.
How Can You Use Citrine for Healing
Now that you see the myriad benefits of Citrine for healing, you must be wondering how you can get your hands on one, and how, exactly, you should be using it in your daily routine.
As with all gemstones, it's quite easy to include Citrine into your regular healing practice.
Of course, you are more than welcome to buy Citrine Jewelry in the form of a necklace, bracelet, or ring, and always have its positive, sunny energy in your life.
If you are not comfortable with wearing the Citrine stone on you, as you are afraid of judgment or losing it, then you can place the Citrine stone around your bed, workplace, or meditation altar.
There are many beautiful Citrine Tree of Life pieces that you can adorn your home with.
Of course, you can also carry Citrine around with you in your purse, wallet, or pocket, and touch it every time you feel like you need a boost of positivity and sunshine.
Citrine Is a Multifaceted and Multi-Benefit Healing Crystal
Now that you know what the many healing properties of Citrine are, you must be eager to get one for yourself.
But be aware that there are many unscrupulous gemstone dealers out there, and you don't want to get a healing crystal that's tainted by negative energies or by negative associations.
Always find a reputable gemstone or healing crystal dealer, and always, always cleanse your crystals once you get them from the store, online or offline.
