And if you need a little extra luck to clinch that tricky business deal, Citrine quells the jitters and gives you that boost of confidence you need. The pristine sheen of Citrine makes the winning gene in your skin beam and gleam. Having Citrine around means you now have a shiny four-leaf clover.

Citrine primarily governs the Solar Plexus chakra. When this chakra is in balance, we feel joy, confident, positive and in power. When it is not, there is a sense of poor self-esteem, willpower and one may experience digestive issues. Citrine is great for strengthening and amplifying yang energy and assisting with detoxification. It helps to boost masculine energy, aka leadership qualities such as being more assertive and decisive.
A simple way to work with Citrine during a morning meditation is to light a red/yellow/white/purple candle. You may wish to drink some warm Chamomile/Osmanthus tea before the ritual. After it is done, if time allows, take a power nap to recalibrate yourself.
Hold the Citrine in both hands (if the piece is large) and you may choose to remain on the table or bring it to your chest, or hold a piece in the non-dominant hand and another pairing crystal in your dominant hand. Speak aloud, “From this moment, I detach and release myself from ALL negative thought forms, ALL emotional, mental, physical and spiritual patterns, habits and blocks that are limiting myself to manifest the best probable outcomes for my highest good. I am consciously aware that I hold the highest power over myself. I hereby raise my vibrational awareness to the highest level in all consciousness so that I can receive an infinite flow of positive energy, love and wisdom directly from the Divine Source to my being. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Energy comparison between Natural Citrine vs Heated Citrine
I feel that Natural Citrine gives off a more earthy and “expanded” kind of energy. It increases your capacity to accept, motivating you and helping you regain confidence, leading one to be more positive. Heated Citrine on the other hand, is more forthcoming, almost a “fierce” fire boost and it focuses on being fixed on something.
You would need to know that there are many “Citrines” in the market that are heat treated from Amethyst and this has become very common, given that the natural material is scarce. If you have gotten one that is treated, know that this does not classify the crystal as bad or wrong. It really boils down to your personal preference. What matters most is that you get what you love. If you wish to be sure you get a natural version, make sure to purchase from trustable source(s) and be wary of overly low prices.
Note: Citrine on our website is all natural, unless specifically stated “Heated Citrine”
Energy of Star Citrine
There is this starburst of energy resembling firecracker sparks. It helps to dispel uneasiness and pessimism especially if you tend to anticipate unhopeful outcomes. I like to hold my sphere in my non-dominant hand to boost the flow of positive and illuminating energy whenever I need. On rare occasions, some people may feel uncomfortable if: energy is strong, there is a blockage within your body, or you happen to be in an angry/negative state of mind recently. In this case, grab a Selenite wand, wave around the discomfort/affected area(s) to “clear” the blockage. Allow yourself to rest before holding the sphere again or try holding it in the other hand to be accustomed to its energy.
Background info - As most Citrines in the market are heated, once the heat interacts with the microscopic rutile (the key element responsible for the asterism effect), it tends to dissolve and eliminate the necessary element for producing star formations. Therefore, asterism in natural Citrine is extremely rare.
