Feng Shui Crystal Money Tree
Question: What is the meaning of feng shui crystal trees, what are they used for and which ones to choose for which feng shui purposes? Can I use Swarovski crystals in my feng shui gem tree?
Answer: Feng shui gem trees, also called feng shui crystal trees, are a popular cure in the traditional feng shui school applications. These crystal trees are used in a variety of applications - from feng shui cures for love to feng shui for money.
The first thing to notice is the use of specific crystals in a tree, because each gem tree will usually come with one, and sometimes several types of crystals, which will define its feng shui application.
There is a wide variety of feng shui gem trees on the market, from amethyst gem trees to agate trees and even pearl, rose quartz and coral trees.
For example, citrine is a stone used for wealth and abundance purposes in feng shui, so a citrine tree will be used in your money area, which is the Southeast area of your bagua (if you are working with the Classical bagua). In the BTB/Western bagua your money area is in the upper left of your home or office.
A jade gem tree can be used as a feng shui cure for health in your health and family area. A rose quartz tree is obviously all about one's heart, so it can be used as a love and romance feng shui cure in the love and marriage area of your bagua.
Sometimes you will come across a colorfully mixed gem tree that displays a variety of bright crystals; this can be an excellent feng shui cure for your Children and Creativity bagua area.
Swarovski crystals are very pretty, but they do not have a strong feng shui energy because they are not 100% natural crystals (they have lead added to them).
If you want, you can sure add some Swarovski crystals to your feng shui gem tree for a bit of sparkle and shine! However, a whole gem tree made only with Swarovski crystals will not have enough potent energy to be used as a specific feng shui cure.
As to the number and the shape of crystals on the tree, the more crystals, the better! After all, the tree symbolizes stability, growth, as well as a long life blessed with abundance. There is no specific number of leaves or fruits on a tree, so there is definitely no feng shui requirement as to the number of crystals on a gem tree used as a feng shui cure.
The idea of a gem tree is that in time you get more and more of what you focus upon; you grow a whole tree, so to speak, from planting the seed of your clear intent. The visual of a feng shui gem tree is one of plenty and abundance; like leaves on a tree, you just can't count all its crystals!
The symbology of specific fruits or flowers will add more meaning to the tree, as well as guide you to its best use. For example, apples are the feng shui symbol of peaceful energy, peaches are used as a symbol of good health, while peony flowers express the energy of sweet and sensual love.
To make your gem tree more potent as a feng shui cure, you can add some enhancements to it. Chinese coins are often added to a gem tree to amplify its energy as a feng shui cure for wealth and abundance. In this case, auspicious feng shui numbers are used, such as 8 or 9 Chinese coins.
When choosing a gem tree for your home or office, be guided by your own feelings as it is important that you like the colors, the crystals, as well as the overall arrangement of the crystal tree.
