Protection ~ Manifestation

A citrine crystal, inherently positive and pure, is a perfect stone for someone just beginning to use crystals and gemstones for healing. It is also a foundational piece for the experienced healer.

Ruled by the lucky planet, Jupiter, and reminiscent of the golden, generous sun, citrine healing stones are meant to instill happiness, joy, and goodness. They also have powerful purifying and revitalizing properties, making citrine crystal an ideal stone for anyone utilizing the beneficial energy of crystals.

Citrine healing properties revolve around its sunlight qualities. Like the sun, it energizes and encourages. Wearing citrine jewelry is like having a positive force around, inspiring confidence and goodwill. It is also an overall cleansing stone, helping to purify not only the physical body, but the subtle bodies as well, bringing balance and connection with higher realms. Natural Citrine does not hold or accumulate negative energy, but rather transmutes, dissipates, and grounds it, making it extremely protective for the environment.  A crystal should be cleansed when first received, but citrine naturally cleanses itself after that.

Citrine crystal has an intensely positive effect on the psyche and one’s emotional outlook. This is the stone to use to help transform anger and negative emotions into positive ones. Through its cleansing energy, it releases darker feelings, tendencies, and thoughts, while at the same time bringing an awareness of divine energy through its ability to open the crown chakra. Wearing a citrine pendant or ring can allow one to go with the flow of life, and enjoy doing it.

The name comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon. It was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 B.C., and because of its color, is sometimes mistakenly referred to as Gold Topaz,

When wearing citrine jewelry for the healing properties, be sure that the crystal is in contact with the skin. A pendant hanging over the throat, or a ring are the best choices.

One of the unique properties of citrine is its ability to increase wealth and success. If used selfishly, this crystal will never work; but, with an open, generous heart (which citrine encourages) it can teach how to energetically attract abundance. One way to use citrine in this way is to take a crystal, preferably a citrine geode, and place it in the wealth corner. The wealth corner is the farthest left corner at the back of a house, or of a room. A citrine geode will draw in abundant energy, bringing this positive force into the house and keeping it there.

Natural Citrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Carrying the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing and life giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits.

Natural Citrine’s radiant yellow and gold energy activates, opens, and energizes the Solar Plexus and Navel Chakras, directing personal power, creativity, and intelligent decisiveness to enhance the physical body. Its foremost energy is to aid in manifestation. When one is totally attuned to the creative Life Force, simply clarifying, defining and projecting what is wanted will draw those purposes toward the person like a powerful magnet. It is very important to use this power of attraction only for the highest good. Otherwise what is drawn will become attachments that will eventually bring loss and sorrow to the possessor. [Melody, 210][Ahsian, 120][Raphaell, 87][Hall, 117]

The gold ray produced in Citrine also stimulates the Crown Chakra, and can be used to channel pure Crown energy back to the Solar Plexus and Navel, allowing for synthesis between the intellect and the body’s total perfection. It increases clarity of thought, mental focus, and protects and directs the use of the creative Life Force in one’s life.

Citrine strengthens the inner light and sparks creativity and imagination. It is ideal for artists of all kinds.

Natural Citrine enhances physical stamina and energy, supports the endocrine system, and encourages proper metabolism. [Ahsian, 120][Megemont, 59-60] It is beneficial for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and may aid in reversing degenerative disease. It is thought to balance the thyroid and facilitate the diminishment of growths. [Hall, 119][Melody, 211]

Citrine opens the higher mind to accept joy in one’s life, releasing anger and negative feelings, deep-seated fears and destructive tendencies. An excellent crystal for overcoming depression, Citrine reduces the sensitivity to criticism and inspires creativity and self-expression. It raises self-esteem, and by letting go of the past, allows one to move forward optimistically, enjoying new experiences and explorations. [Hall, 118][Gienger, 28]

Natural Citrine is a powerful purifier of one’s will center, helping to identify and heal issues of power abuse and feelings of helplessness. It enables one to understand what is necessary to resolve those situations, and provides the courage and fortitude needed to make difficult decisions and take action. [Ahsian, 120][Gienger, 28]

High quality Citrine reflects the golden ray so clearly it beams positive sunlight energy directly into one’s environment. In single generator form, Citrine crystals can be set in gold and worn with the termination point facing downward, channeling the crown energy into the body. [Raphaell, 89][Hall, 119]
