Fluorite Crystal Healing
What is Fluorite Used For?Fluorite is a powerful crystal that can help with mental clarity and focus. It can be beneficial for those who are indecisive and can help you to focus on your goals.
Fluorite stimulates the mind so can be used to enhance memory and learning. It increases mental awareness and can assist in organising and processing information.
Judy Hall author of the Crystal Bible books says fluorite has powerful emotional healing properties. It can help with the release of negative emotions and can motivate you towards letting go of emotional attachments.
Fluorite crystals can be used to promote self-love, self-confidence and self-worth. Their calming energy melts away stress and anxiety.
Fluorite is often used in meditation because it's believed to promote spiritual growth and inner peace.
In crsytal healing circles fluorite is used to enhance intuition, increase awareness of spiritual energies and to help build a connection with your higher self.
It may also be used to protect against negative energy and to provide a shield against psychic attack.
When using fluorite for its healing properties you may want to choose a specific colour. Purple can be used for spiritual healing, green for emotional healing and yellow for mental clarity and focus.
How to Charge Fluorite Crystals
Crystal healers recommend cleansing fluorite prior to using it for the first time. Crystals can be safely submerged in water but should not be left for any length of time.
When cleansing any crystal we do not recommend using salt. Salt is a corrosive and will cause some level of damage to many minerals, especially those as soft as fluorite.
The colour of some fluorite crystals is sensitive to light so is known to fade if exposed to natural daylight. Excessive heat may also cause the colour to change.
It's often recommended crystals used for their healing properties be charged in sunlight in order to rid them of negative energy. With the colour of some fluorite being sensitive to heat and light this is not something we'd recommend.
Crystals can also be charged in the light of the moon. If leaving them outside be aware of temperature.
Another effective way of charging healing crystals is through smudging.
What is Smudging?
Smudging is a cleansing ritual used in crystal healing and other spiritual practices to remove negative energy and purify a space or object.
Smudging involves burning herbs often sage but any herb can be used. Palo santo is particularly popular.
Palo santo is wood from palo santo trees which are found primarily in South America.
In crystal healing smudging is a great alternative to submerging crytals in water or charging them in the sun. The smoke is believed to remove negative energy that may have accumulated on a crystal.
Many crystals used for their healing properties absorb negative energy from the environment and from those who handle them. Smudging can help to reset or recharge the energy hence restoring their natural vibration.
To smudge your crystals light a smudge stick or bundle of herbs. Hold one crystal at a time in the smoke for a few seconds whilst rotating it to ensure all sides are cleansed.
Many people who use crystals for their healing properties say a crystal will often feel more energised after being smudged.
Smudging can also be used to cleanse the energy of a space. This tends to be done at the beginning or end of a crystal healing session or meditation practice.
The mineral fluorite is widely used for its metaphysical healing properties.
This colourful crystal forms in the shape of cubes and octahedrons. A crystal shaped as an octahedron looks like two pyramids joined base to base.Fluorite crystals are relatively soft so must be handled carefully. They can chip, crack or frature easily so it's not unusual for stones to have minor imperfections.
Fluorite has a vitreous lustre which is a reference to the way the surface of the crystal reflects light. Rocks and minerals with this kind of lustre reflect light in a similar way to glass.
Twinned crystals are relatively common in fluorite. Crystals that occur in this way look as if one crystal is merging into another.
In its purest form fluorite is colourless but trace impurities of other minerals cause a wide range of colours. Fluorite is often known as "the most colourful mineral in the world" because it can exhibit more colours than any other mineral.
Natural crystals have been enjoyed by humans for thousands of years for their aesthetic value and healing properties.
Fluorite is a beautiful crystal but one that needs to be treated with care.
