Creating your own Crystal Altar is easy and inexpensive. What is a crystal altar? It is a special place where you keep your collection of crystals for meditation and/or for an energy center in your home or apartment. It doesn't require much room, and can be set up in a few minutes.
It can have crystals and stones, along with other items of nature, such as feathers, shells, wood, water, candles and even a prayer card. The point is you can use just about anything you choose. The important thing to remember is that each of these items should be special to you. I often put feathers on my altar that cross my path. You can use a shelf or dresser top as long as it is a place that will not be disturbed or that can not cause a fire when burning candles.
Once you have assembled your altar, the intention is to bring light and energy to you and your surrounding area. You can program your stones and crystals for specific use or just use them for decoration and let them do what they do naturally, which is to dissolve and balance energy.
