Citrine, sometimes called 'crystallized sunlight', is a golden-yellow colored Quartz that is renowned as one of the most powerful healing stones. A solar stone sacred to healing deities like Apollo and Aesclepius, its bright, sunny power can bring hope and new energy even to people who find life impossible to bear. In crystal healing it is used to treat the heart, kidneys, muscles and stomach and is said to be very effective when working with gangrene, infection and blood disorders. Perhaps Citrine's most useful quality is its ability to raise the spirits of people who are ill, bringing a smile to their face and at the same time boosting their immune system and encouraging recovery. Citrine is probably the best stone to use for treating depression and lack of motivation or physical energy. It can be used to help treat lethargy, obesity, comfort-eating, self-damaging or compulsive behavior, grief and guilt.
A Citrine crystal cluster is believed to cleanse the vibrations in its environment and can purify a room that is used for magic, meditation or healing. It is also said to be able to negate the effects of electromagnetic energy fields, which surround almost everyone living in the modern world, so it would be a useful crystal to keep in your office or in any room with a television, computer or electrical appliances.
Meditation with Citrine brings conflicting energies into balance and helps to integrate the physical and spiritual aspects of your nature so that both are working in harmony. It can help you find ways to transform your dreams and wishes into physical reality and encourages new beginnings and warm feelings of love, faith and hope.
