Quartz crystal points and clusters should be in every home to bring harmony to the life force. They are excellent tools for healing, meditation, chakra balancing and protection. Gemstone balls and crystal spheres are used for healing, to emanate the energy of the stone, and in rituals. They contain protection, love and many other desirable energies. 

Crystal Ball Gazing
A Crystal Ball used for gazing should be kept wrapped in black silk. When using the Crystal Ball for gazing it is best to hold the Crystal Ball in your hands with the black silk between your hands and the Crystal Ball. You may use a stand for the ball if you find holding the ball uncomfortable.

You must experiment to find what time of day or night is best for you. You must relax and sit passively. Make sure you are comfortable. Take several deep breaths. You must have patience. Concentrate on a question.

Often colors are seen the Crystal Ball. Green, blue and violet are excellent omens. Red, orange and yellow are negative omens and you must take care. Black is unfavorable and much care must be taken until it is no longer seen.

A white brilliance is very favorable for you, meaning your life is on the right track and will be improved. You may see movement or even visions in your Crystal Ball.

Meditation 
A gemstone or crystal sphere can be used during meditation. You may want to hold the sphere or just gaze upon it when meditating.

Healing
Crystal healing should be done by a professional and in conjunction with traditional medicine. Find a professional in your area who offers a workshop or seminar. An excellent website to learn more about using crystals for healing is Crystal Vibrations by Colleen Simmons.

Decoration with a purpose
Place a gemstone sphere in a room or on your bedside dresser or office desk to emante a particular energy that you feel is needed. For example, a rose quartz sphere at your bedside surrounds the room with love. A crystal ball will cleanse the room of negativity, while a jasper sphere will emanate protection. Bring money to your business with a malachite sphere on your desk. Increase your luck with the stock market with a black tourmaline sphere.
