Keeping the Peace While Driving (and Other Uses for Crystals in the Car)

Keeping the Peace While Driving (and Other Uses for Crystals in the Car)

You use crystals in your home, in your office, and during meditation. You wear a crystal around your neck, keep one in your pocket, and have a few in your purse.

You know the power of crystals and you’re prepared to harness that power at a moment’s notice. What you may not have considered, however, is the importance of keeping crystals in your car.

The road is a dangerous emotional place! There’s traffic, poor drivers, road work, and road rage to contend with.

Why should you put crystals in your car?

The negative energy on the road is abundant and if you’re not careful, you can be totally consumed by it. Your car needs energetic protection to keep you, your passengers, and the other drivers on the road safe.

I mean, let’s face it, even if you’re an always-on-the-ball driver who never gets annoyed by others, you’re not in control of the rest of the cars on the road. If they make the wrong move or they let their irritation get the best of them, you could be automatically put in danger.

With the right crystals in your car, you can keep yourself protected from the many dangers. You can also keep yourself calm while driving, keep your car safe from dangers, and help ensure a smooth drive from one place to another.

First, Cleanse Your Car

Before filling your car with crystals, you will want to perform a cleansing ritual to remove any negative energy and prepare it for protection. It’s a good idea to actually CLEAN your car before you begin the ritual, by removing any clutter, clothes, dirt, and whatever else has been caking the inside and outside of your vehicle.

Once the car is physically clean, you will perform a cleansing ritual by burning (anything but) sage and chanting a simple, cleansing incantation. Perform the ritual both in your car and outside of your car, fully cleansing it to prepare it for energetic protection.

Next, Introduce Your Crystals to Your Car

When you have cleansed your car and you’re ready to put your crystals inside, you will want to be intentional about introducing them. Sit in your car and hold your crystals while repeating an incantation.

Your incantation should include the affirmation that with the crystals, you and your car are protected at all times. This will set the intention that your crystals are going to promote positive, peaceful, and protective energies for your car and everyone inside.

Place the Crystals in Your Car

You will want to put crystals in specific places in your car. Each location and each type of crystal serves a certain purpose that helps to keep you and your car safe.

Here are some of the main places to put crystals in your car:

  • Under the driver’s seat.
  • Under the passenger’s seat.
  • In the trunk.
  • In the glovebox.
  • Inside a middle console.
  • On the dashboard.
  • Hanging from the rearview mirror.
