Healing Crystals That Help Treat Anxiety
In this post, you will learn which healing crystals are most effective when dealing with stress and anxiety.
If you think you may have an anxiety disorder, contact your physician. Crystals are a great supplemental treatment, but if you suffer from a chemical imbalance, you’ll need to consult with your doctor.
That being said, if you’re looking for an effective supplemental treatment for anxiety, crystal healing is a great choice. It has the potential to gently get you started down the path of healing, and assist you in finding the ways you need to heal yourself on all levels.
You don’t need to go out and get all of these anxiety reducing crystals, however, there are those that may work for you better than others will, based on their unique energies and abilities.
Loving, Calm Crystals
You just need more love. Not necessarily romantic love, but other kinds as well, like the pure unconditional love of a parent to their child, or from friend to friend. Love is the most natural healer, and preventive of anxiety. The following stones will help you draw more and more loving energy into your life, and leaving less and less room for anxiety.
Rose Quartz’s essence is that of pure, unconditional love. It’s soft pink color makes it the best heart chakra healing, as well as its high energy frequency. The fact that it’s part of the crystal family, makes it one of the most effective stones for easing away stress and anxiety. Malachite and Green Jade are also loving stones that balance the heart chakra.
Peaceful, Focused Crystals
Sometimes when you’re feeling stressed and overly-worried about something, all you might need is a little dose of serenity. We can’t always retreat to our sanctuaries when stress and worry creep up on us, but you can carry a little piece of it with you! The following crystals are little “taking a chill pill”.
Sodalite is a stone of calm, but it’s also great for those who need more mental focus -- making it perfect for students.
Angelite and Blue Lace Agate are both stones of peace and tranquility. Angelite can also have the potential to help you tap into divine guidance, if that’s what you want.
Soothing Crystals for Insomnia
Do you stay awake half the night, thinking about the day ahead, worrying about what will happen the next day, or remembering horrible things that have happened to you in the past? We’ve all been there. Luckily, there are a few wonderful healing crystals that are perfect for combating anxiety or worries when you should be enjoying a peaceful slumber.
Amethyst, a member of the quartz family, can draw out toxic energies from your aura. The violet color eases you into a deep and peaceful sleep. It’s been known to help protect you while you sleep and not allowing worry to sink in.
Lepidolite and Lithium Quartz will specifically work to calm your mind and give you a sense of security. It has a stable energy that will ease you into a peaceful dream state.
Stones that Protect from Bad Vibes
And last but not least, stress and anxiety can also be a result of negative vibes in your environment.
These bad vibes might be coming from other people, from the earth (toxic earth energies), or from electronics and appliances that emit EMFs. The possible dangers of Electromagnetic Fields have recently been brought to light as a possible cause of anxiety.
The National Institute of Environmental Health Studies has actively been studying the effects of EMFs on animals. Some recent studies have hinted to a possible link between EMF field strength and an increased risk for illness, however, more research is needed to prove anything.
Black Tourmaline is the most commonly used stone in combating anxiety, stress and general negativity. It acts as a barrier against maligned energy or toxic vibes, but it will also keep you grounded and clear out any existing bad vibes.
Shungite is only mined in Russia, near the town of Shung. It should normally only be used in small doses, and should even have a warning label attached, due to its strength. Shungite has the superpower of absorbing negative energy and drawing any toxic energy out of your auric body. (This can bring any long-forgotten or subconscious trauma up to the surface, where you will be forced to confront it. It’s recommended that you take some rose quartz and amethyst along for the ride.)
The healing process for crystals is slow and steady, and you won’t even notice it working at first, until you look back and see how far you’ve come.
