Easter is upon us!
Past the religious celebrations, there’s also plenty of bunnies and eggs featured for this holiday. From chocolates to cookies, the abundant energy of the rabbit and the life-giving eggs have become a mainstay for this season.
But some of you might have noticed the egg shapes are popular during your crystal shopping as well. That’s right - Feng Shui has also been leveraging on this shape to impart beneficial energies this whole time as well.
So why are they so popular in Feng Shui?
Notice how eggs have a circular side and more pointed end? Turns out it’s the perfect symbol for the Metal element.
The round section represents clarity, focus and brings a organised air to the space. It is also harvesting positive energies in a space, after which t transfers it to the more pointed end to distribute gently.
This is both filter and collector, pulling in positive influences and clarifying them once again to be distributed into the surroundings.
This encourages Qi (energy) flow, which is what Feng Shui is fundamentally about.
The Chinese have also favoured egg shapes because they symbolise fertility, abundance, and new life.
Coincidentally, the Metal element is also often activated for pregnancy - a double boost!
It also adds benefactors at work, something which we can always use.
So why are crystals made into Eggs?
We all know that crystals have associated properties, and the egg shape is one of the best shapes to form them into because it’s less aggressive than the other forms.
Unlike the pyramid, the egg-shape is gentler and so often preferred. By imparting this sort of distribution, the effects are still felt but less forceful.
As the shape used to absorb and transmute bad energies, while amplifying positive ones, one can almost never use the item in “the wrong way”.
Unlike some other forms or shapes, the egg can be placed in a space by people who are unaware of Feng Shui principles, and still receive its beneficial influence. It's perfect for beginners!
Other uses of the Egg
The Egg is also included in some forms of health therapy as well. Some massages utilise egg-shaped tools to treat areas of pain or soreness.
This is often meant to harness the energy of the life-giving and healing egg to impart further beenfit to the therapy.
The soft ends also make them perfect for the session. Try picking out an appropriate crystal in that shape and roll on your body for some instant relief!
What crystals are best for the Egg?
As seen earlier, you can’t go wrong with the egg. Popular options include Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Flourite, Obsidian, Jasper, Aventurine, Tiger Eye, Clear Quartz, Calcite, Hematite, Tourmaline, Agate.
What’s a good size?
This will depend on the space you are looking at. If you have a space that’s equivalent to a 3-room flat, a palm-size will be sufficient. If you have a large house like a landed property, you need to look at getting one the size of an ostrich egg or larger.
The soothing shape is easy to include into any space or decor theme, so having a larger one is often not a concern. And because you can do no wrong with the shape, place it anywhere you like!
Round-up of the Egg’s effect
To summarise, the Egg is a perfect shape to balance and harmonise energies. It activates certain sectors to enhance pregnancy and fertility. At the workplace, it helps to attract benefactors and creates good relationships with people. As a symbol of new life, it also augurs results in new projects and ideas. Entrepreneurs should enjoy that!
