Crystals that help with Anxiety
~Who has experienced anxiety in their life, in one form or another?
I know that I have. As a matter of fact, 3 months ago, I was filled with a level of anxiety that threw my physical body into a constant fight or flight mode. I could not sleep, eat healthy or exercise. I was turning to instant carb filled foods, I stopped exercising because I was super exhausted and in turn, my mental and physical health began depleting.
Being a lover of crystals and in the beginning stages of creating my new business, Crystal Therapy, I had a friend remind me to turn to crystals for healing. I was so wrapped up in the problem and in fear of never seeing the light of day again, that I missed the obvious answer to healing my problems.
Now anxiety can come from anywhere and be at any level. I was experiencing extreme anxiety for someone who has had bouts of it at different levels my entire life, and yet, what would be a minor anxiety attack to me, might be a major attack for someone who has never had anxiety before.
So with my recent experience, I felt it was a necessity to share with you the crystals that have helped me get through these past few months and to the level where I can focus on manifestation and prosperity.
What healing crystals do I need?
Howlite is my number one go to when it comes to relieving anxiety. It eases stress and the physical tightness that I was feeling in my chest. Because of it, I was able to get pretty instant relief. I would just hold the stone against my chest and within several minutes, I found the tightening begin to ease up.
- Rose Quartz
Rose Quartz is wonderful for the heart chakra and anything to do with the heart and or love. I found that while I was in a state of anxiety, I was also focused on negative thoughts that had put me into the state of anxiety that I was feeling.
I chose to meditate on rose quartz while focusing on love and remembering that I could forgive. It has been helping me to refocus my attention on the beautiful things around me and in my life
Rose Quartz is also a great stone for fertility. Being all about love, compassion, kindness, and caring it helps bring you and your body into a vital place when trying to conceive. If you want to know more about crystals for fertility you can check out our detailed post here.
Amethyst is one of my favorites, and a go-to crystal in most situations. I love how it releases stress and anxiety by increasing the feeling of calm and vibrating peace. I usually keep little tumbled amethyst stones in a mesh bag with lavender to help me sleep as well. Purple is calming on its own so having it vibrate at just the right frequency helps to intensify its effects on the body and mind.
Citrine is a close cousin of Amethyst and can help provide many of the same benefits as Amethyst.
Sodalite is such a beautiful crystal. It is calming like water, peaceful like rain after a storm. It adds peace and calm to your body and mind while easing any stress or anxiety that builds up in your being. I have really enjoyed the comfort of this stone alongside of carnelian in a mala I made myself for meditation. Carnelian is wonderful for overcoming abuse and learning to trust in yourself, giving you courage. That feels great with the calm of sodalite.)
Lepidolite is literally one of the prettiest crystals I own. I kept buying it at stores and rock shows long before I ever knew its meaning and why I was so attracted to it. This beautiful crystal is said to bring deep emotional healing, which in turn reduces any stress or depression that might be plaguing your mind or soul. I love this so much. I have the need for deep healing it would seem, in all areas of my life which could explain why this crystal keeps appearing in many forms and shades of purple and pink. It is quite majestic in its sparkle and peaceful nature.
- Blue Lace Agate
Blue lace agate is a crystal that I discovered by accident. It was early in my jewelry-making days. I made myself a pendant out of it and began noticing that I felt more peaceful when I wore it. I felt calm and spoke both calmly and rationally (if you know me then you know I tend to be a bit irrational due to my wild imagination and my broad belief in faith and of the fantasy realm.) Later, I learned that Blue lace agate is a stone of the throat chakra, so I realized that the communication made sense, never mind that it is calming with its gorgeous color and design reflecting the rolling waves of the sea.
Labradorite protects against negativity and since anxiety and stress come from negative thoughts or actions, I love having this crystal on me or near me during stressful or anxious times.
Fluorite is such a calming crystal no matter what color it comes in, and it comes in several. Fluorite is called the rainbow keeper because of its wide range of colored stripes. Pinks, purples, blues, aqua, greens… all peaceful and translucent giving the keeper a sense of peace whether in meditation or when wearing it as jewelry. I love how healing this stone is when you are feeling a little anxious and need to feel calm.
Shungite is a root chakra stone. It is very grounding which helps to relieve anxiety. Shungite is also a very powerful EMF (electromagnetic field) protector. Something one should always carry on themselves or have on their phone or near their computer or other electronics in the home or office.
Shungite is also a very powerful protection crystal. If you want to learn more about protection crystals then you can read more in my recent post about what crystals are good for protection.
There are many more crystals that help to relieve anxiety, but I don’t want to overwhelm you in my first article on the subject. These are just the few that have really helped me over the past few months.
Best Crystal Necklace for anxiety:
So recently I created a howlite pendant for myself. I made it as a talisman to keep away anxiety and panic attacks that I had been experiencing on the daily since August this year. I meant to first make one for myself, then a few for future customers, but as it turns out there was more of a need for them than I had realized, even my 3.5 year old claimed one before it was finished. I did end up with mine and have worn it every day except today, and today was the first bout of anxiety (albeit minor) that I had experienced since first wearing it two weeks ago.
Bracelets that help with Anxiety
I have also been wearing mala bracelets over the past month. I have several in particular that I switch up and wear daily. A howlite bracelet, a shungite bracelet, blue lace agate bracelet, fluorite, and one that is a mix of howlite, labradorite, and lepidolite. These are some of my favorite crystals that help with anxiety.
