Hi there! Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog where I share with you all the things I love and am passionate about.
If you’re into Crystals, you know that there’s a crystal for everything. Some can ward off negative energy, others can heal your broken heart, and still others can be used to calm you down when your stress levels are flaring up.
Crystals are from the Earth, so it only makes sense that when we’re feeling anxious or nervous, attuning to their energy can ground us. They can also be really helpful in taking us back to our centre and connecting us to our essential selves.
A common question I get asked is Which Crystals Do You Recommend for Anxiety and Accumulated Stress?
Having some of the following soothing crystals nearby will help you stay centered and stress-free, no matter what’s going on in the world around you. Whether you hold them in your hand, keep them on your working space or wear them as jewellery, by just setting that intention, allow the crystals to do the work for you.
Turning to healing crystals can be an amazing way to tune in and alleviate unsettling feelings, especially when used alongside other wellness practices such as prayer and meditation. Thankfully there are hundreds of crystals that can act as tools for helping with our stress – but as you can imagine, I have a few favourites. These gems are a must for anyone wanting to stay anchored in that sacred place of serenity. As the owner and founder of Gemstones & Jewellery by GC I recommend the following 10 crystals to overcome anxiety.
1. ROSE QUARTZ
At this little crystal shop we feel that self-love is a superpower and the real foundation of all true personal power. Widely known as the stone of unconditional love, the pink Rose Quartz is said to attract and inspire love in all forms. It’s especially good for promoting self-love and emotional harmony. When we’re stressed, it can be hard to simply remember to care for ourselves. Keeping a piece of Rose Quartz out where we can see it, like on a nightstand or next to the bathtub, can act as a powerful visual reminder to take a little bit of “me time” every day – even if it’s just two quiet minutes spent alone, breathing deeply and not staring at a phone. Rose quartz is also a wonderful stone to sleep with in your hand or byou your bed side table for a more peaceful sleep.
One of the most popular stones known for its soothing powers, Amethyst’s gentle nature works wonders when it comes to calming the nerves, managing emotional swings, and keeping your clarity in check.
In today’s world, Amethyst is a remarkable stone of spirituality and contentment, known for its metaphysical abilities to still the mind and inspire an enhanced meditative state. Its inherent high frequency purifies the aura of any negative energy or attachments, and creates a protective shield of Light around the body, allowing one to remain clear and centered while opening to spiritual direction. Amethyst stimulates the Third Eye, Crown, and Etheric Chakras enhancing cognitive perception as well as accelerating the development of intuitive and psychic ability. It initiates wisdom and greater understanding and is a stone of comfort for those grieving the loss of a loved one.
3. Smoky Quartz
A stone of bravery – often our anxieties can come from a fear-based place. By utilizing the cleansing power of Smoky Quartz, you kickstart your inner strength and find the courage to face the day free of your fears. When it comes to reaching a higher state of consciousness, the Smoky Quartz crystal is your stepping stone to vibrating at your full potential because it works to release negative emotions like jealousy, fear, and anger. With life’s constant cycle of highs and lows, happiness is often a moving target, which makes a daily energy cleanse a vital part of your everyday wellness routine.
Often referred to as “the Stone of Peace,” Sodalite is said to help calm the mind and ease panic attacks. If you’ve been feeling anxious in any way, tuck this royal blue beauty in your purse or pocket, as it carries a comforting energy that is helpful in preventing us from becoming overly wound up and emotional. Having trouble expressing yourself? Sodalite is also believed to stimulate self-confidence and aid in self-expression, so keep it close any time you’re feeling nervous about sharing your thoughts and ideas with others.
When it comes to true spiritual wellness, there aren’t many quick fixes. But the Kyanite blade comes close. An excellent stone for use in meditation, this powdery blue gem is believed to instantly align the body’s chakras. It’s grounding spiritual vibrations can help us to release unwanted feelings such as anger, fear and frustration, and help us to connect with our own higher wisdom. What’s more is that it doesn’t hold on to negative energy, and therefore is one of the few crystals that doesn’t need to be cleansed. One less thing in life that needs cleaning… Clearly we had to get on board with that!
Lack of sleep is one of the largest contributing factors to feeling stressed. If you’re experiencing problems falling asleep at night, try tucking a white Howlite under your pillow, as it’s calming energy is believed to help with insomnia especially when the root cause is an overactive mind. Howlite teaches patience, wisdom, and helps to resolve feelings of anger. Tuck it in your pocket and it is said to absorb your own feelings of anger, while shielding you from the negative energy of others.
Angelite, the stone of guardian angels, reminds you that you are never alone. . When you connect on a deep level with Angelite, it allows you to bridge the gap between the physical world and the celestial realm, where you can access the support system of your angels watching over you. When you are plugged into the support and guidance available to you, all of your feelings of worry, anxiety or fear will fall away.
The comforting properties are what make Angelite such an excellent anxiety reliever. Ease away feelings of stress with the reassuring energy of your Angelite crystal. Amethyst is a gentle stone that helps to open and active the third eye chakra, the energy center associated with your mind. By infusing your head space with peaceful and relaxing energy, this stone works to clear away any chaotic, worried, or anxiety-ridden thoughts.
With a clear mind, you can move through any stressful situations with a sense of peace and calm. With its deep purple color and attractive geode formation, Amethyst has an instantly calming effect on everything around it, whether it is featured in crystal jewelry or as a large cluster placed in a room.
This creamy gem is believed to balance female hormones and is an incredibly powerful crystal for relieving stress, heightening intuition, and stabilizing the emotions. Furthermore, if you’ve ever wanted to develop your psychic abilities, this is the stone to keep on hand. Meditate with this incredibly powerful gem any time you’re feeling off-kilter in any way.
9. Black Tourmaline
When you find yourself overwhelmed with worry and fear, reach for your Black Tourmaline as your “security blanket.” Hold a chunk in each of your hands and imagine your fears, worries, and anxiety being sucked into the black crystals. Having the weight of the crystals in your hands makes this visualization easier, relieving your anxiety at a much quicker rate. Tourmaline is also your best bet at protecting your auric field from negative energies, so grab yourself a Tourmaline if you dont have one already in your collection.
10. Lapis Lazuli
A stone that helps you connect to your higher truth, Lapis Lazuli with its luscious shades of blue and brilliant heavenly energy is a regal remedy against anxiety. Helping you to look beyond the periphery grants a soothing space and ensures you don’t get lost in the little details.
