Favorite Things Friday: Crystals and Rainbows and Unicorns

SONY DSC

Just kidding. I don’t like unicorns. I don’t even think they are real.

I do like crystals, but not in a hippy, wear it around your neck to ward off bad spirits sort of way.

I just like them because they are glass. Really pretty glass.

And they make really awesome rainbows. Which can’t be a bad thing, right?

I have heard that crystals can help circulate the Ch’i – which is a Chinese word meaning life force energy - in your home. Nobody wants stagnant Ch’i. Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s not. I certainly don’t want to take any chances with my Ch’i.

Apparently, there are all kinds of things that can help circulate Ch’i – just look around the next time you are in a Chinese food restaurant or nail salon. There will probably be twirly things, or bells, or mirrors – OR crystals – right above the door and near the cash register area. Maybe they are on to something.

There is a Chinese saying, “If you want change in your life, move 27 things in your home.” Moving things gets the Ch’i moving. You could also try hanging up a crystal. Even if all of this is hogwash, having a really pretty glass thing that makes rainbows hanging in your room certainly can’t be a bad thing!

    I am LOL because you say youh wouldn’t wear a crystal
    Around you neck as that is new age woo woo but then
    Gave all these examples about house energy and Chi
    Not sure what I believe but you could say we are each a house to ourselves
    So in that case wouldn’t wearing crystals be equivalent to hanging them?

    Why is one energy force real and the othe woo woo?
    Have you ever found a special Rick that called to you at it felt
    Energetically special? As my kids would say
    Just Sayin
    Actually I font believe in crystals around your neck
    But do believe in chi so interested in what we would embrace one
    And not the other? It’s like Ham I am Jewish will eat bacon
    And even buy sliced deli ham but would NEVER bake
    A whole ham!
