Crystals for Stress and Anxiety

Jessica Roth

Every day most of us deal with stressful current events, society, work environments, home life, and the overall fast-pace of life. All of these can contribute to feeling stressed and anxious in your daily life – and this seems more common than ever. Does this feel like you? You’re not alone – I dealt with ongoing stress and anxiety for over ten years and it was when I started working with crystals that things began to shift and I was feeling more balanced and grounded each day.

So how can a crystal help with stress and anxiety? 

There is a lot more to a crystal than it just being a pretty paperweight on your desk! The short explanation is that crystals have a very stable energetic vibration (also known as a dominant oscillatory rate) due to their perfect crystalline structures. Therefore, a crystal’s vibration is consistent and doesn’t change. Whereas a person’s energetic vibration is always fluctuating based on many factors, including how you interact with surrounding environments, situations, emotions, other people, etc. 

Therefore, what you deal with on a daily basis can feel like a rollercoaster, creating stress and anxiety, resulting in an overall “low vibe” feeling.

Here’s where crystals really shine. When you bring a crystal into your personal energy field, it acts like an anchor, and any “low vibe” energy will start to shift and entrain to the more uplifting and stable energetic vibration of that crystal. This is how crystals can assist with things like releasing stress and anxiety!

Below are my top five favorite crystals to help you shift out of the feelings of stress and anxiety, and move into a more relaxed state.

Protect with Black Tourmaline: This crystal is one of the first that I recommend, because it is wonderful at transmuting negative energy, neutralizing anxiety, and protecting you against electromagnetic frequencies (from cell phones, Wi-Fi, etc.). It is also very common for you to not feel fully present in your body when dealing with stress and anxiety (meaning, you might only be in your head from thinking, worrying, etc.), and therefore your energy might feel stuck or scattered. Black Tourmaline will help release negative thought patterns and bring you back into your body, so that you can feel centered and grounded.

Relax with Lepidolite: This crystal excels with emotional healing, anxiety, grief, worry and stress relief. It’s best for calming when life feels challenging, when you’re feeling frazzled and anxious. It can also assist with the higher chakras and connecting. It is a high vibration crystal and activates spiritual energy, self-love, and inner connection.

Flow with Amazonite: One of my favorite crystals for calming, soothing and instilling a feeling of peacefulness. It is reminiscent of water, bringing in calming energies that promote “going with the flow”. This is also one of the best crystals for heart-centered communication, perfect for reducing conflict and stress. Overall, it promotes a very tranquil and relaxing energy. 

Love with Rose Quartz: Often known as the Love crystal, this crystal infuses you with the energy of unconditional love. Rose Quartz is perfect for easing fears, anxiety and tension, while also helping you shift into feeling supported, safe and loved. This crystal has a very nurturing and feminine energy, and is a favorite for many.

Release with Rutilated Quartz: This crystal has a very high vibration, which helps cleanse your energy field and raise your vibration by bringing in the energies of lightness and joy. It also encourages “letting go” and assists you with releasing overwhelm brought on by everyday life responsibilities. Rutilated Quartz is also great for decluttering your mind and shifting you into a positive mindset, so that you are more focused on experiencing positive outcomes.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering: How do I use these crystals to feel calm, balanced and centered?  

The first step is having the crystals within your personal energy field (also called your aura, which is approximately 3 feet around your body). This allows your energy to be influenced by the energetic vibration of the crystal. You can make the intention to have the shifts be instant, while focusing on the intent of connecting with the crystal’s properties.  

The easiest ways to work with crystals are to hold them in your hands, wear them as jewelry, or keep them in your pockets. If you want to take it even further, you can meditate with crystals, place them next to you while you sleep, or use them in a crystal healing session. I also love pairing crystals with other modalities to help boost the calming effects… anything from a relaxing bath, meditation, massage, essential oils, healing music, energy work, etc.

It’s possible to feel a difference within minutes of having a crystal in your aura, and the more consistently you work with crystals, the faster you will feel things shift. Consistency is key, and you’ll be feeling calmer in no time!

A Secret About Working With Crystals…

Jessica Roth

Side effects of crystals.jpg

You may have noticed that crystals are becoming a lot more mainstream lately, which has its pros and cons. For instance, you can now find crystals at places like Home Goods, or even crystal water bottles at Nordstrom, which was not the case a few years ago!

As a Certified Crystal Healer, I find this both exciting AND concerning.

Exciting because it means that people are becoming more open to the idea that crystals are more than just a rock! But concerning, because while I think people are more open now, they aren’t yet educated about crystals and the powerful tools that they are. And as someone who educates about crystal energy and how to use crystals, I feel like it’s something I need to discuss so that you can be more aware and empowered when working with crystals.

Crystals are super powerful tools that can assist you in shifting energy, releasing old emotions, trauma, etc… as well as raising your vibrational frequency. And while the “raising your vibe” thing is what most people talk about, most people aren’t aware that crystals also help facilitate the releasing process. Essentially, as crystals raise your vibrational frequency, they stir up and activate an energetic detox of emotions, anxiety, old memories, etc.  

And a lot of people aren’t ready for that (yet).

So while you may buy a crystal to raise your vibe, you need to also be aware that in the beginning, you may feel a rollercoaster of emotions as things bubble to the surface to release. In order to raise your vibration higher, you need to let go of your low vibration baggage, so to speak. And if you have a lot of things to process, you’ll want it to happen in a way that isn’t too uncomfortable, right? Which means that you need to be conscious of how you are working with crystals, so that it is an enjoyable process. 

Otherwise, if you aren’t aware of how to work with crystals, you might be feeling a bit of “whiplash” from the emotional rollercoaster of jumping all in with a new crystal.  

Think about it this way… before you start a journey to the top of a 15,000-foot mountain (compare this to raising your vibration), you start out slow so that you can acclimate to the higher elevations, right? It’s a process. You know that if you go from sea level to 15,000-feet in the same day, then you’re likely going to have some issues adjusting to the high altitude, and potentially not feel well from the huge adjustment – tired, headaches, woozy, dehydrated… 

It can be the same when working with crystals, especially ones that tend to vibrate at higher frequencies (like quartz, Lemurian, Herkimer diamonds, apophyllite). How your energy responds and experiences a crystal’s energy will be unique to you, based on where you are in your life right now, how you process energy, and what your body-mind-soul has stored from the past.

Here’s how you can navigate working with crystals, so that you aren’t experiencing any uncomfortable side effects:

  • Start working with only one new crystal at a time, especially if you are new to crystals. This allows you to determine how your mind-body-soul is adjusting to that crystal’s energy.

  • Start slow with this crystal… this will vary per person. Perhaps it means that you only spend 5-10 minutes with a crystal the first day, and slowly increase the amount of time each day. Or if you are more experienced with crystals, this may mean an hour the first day. Use your intuition as guidance - only you will know what’s appropriate for you.

  • Keep a journal of your experiences with the crystal each day. How you felt when working with the crystal, what thoughts or memories surfaced, etc.

  • Drink a lot of water, because working with crystals is a form of energy work. Drinking water helps our physical and emotional bodies process this energy work more efficiently, just like with any other type of detox.

  • Stay grounded… Perhaps this is with a grounding crystal, connecting with the earth’s energies through a meditation, exercising to connect with your body, etc. By staying grounded, it helps keep you from shifting too fast.

  • Listen to your intuition. If a certain crystal makes you feel uncomfortable, set it aside and come back to it later. Most likely, it’s helping your subconscious access something that needs to be released/healed, so gauge if you’re ready right now, or if you’ll process it another time. 

  • Consult with a Certified Crystal Healer for more information and guidance about working with crystals.

Top 3 Crystals for Self Love

There are so many wonderful crystals to use for Self-Love… in fact, this is one of the most common questions I’m asked: Which crystals for more self-love?

In life, it is so easy to get caught up in all the daily demands, especially if you have a family/kids, manage a business, want to live a conscious lifestyle, balance friends and social events, PLUS, making time for yourself… which might include: exercising, meditating, healthy eating, self-care, self-love, etc… However, giving ourselves attention and self-love tends to be the last priority.

Can you relate?

The more we can nurture the special relationship with ourselves, the better we can show up for everyone (and everything) else in our lives. The more loved and fulfilled you feel within, the more you can share with others. A great place to start is to work with Crystals that emit the frequency of LOVE… this can help shift your energy into that frequency, so that you are feeling more connected with your heart chakra and providing yourself with FEELING more loved and fulfilled.

By wearing these crystals as jewelry, it’s a great way to have the physical reminder of your intention to connect more with self-love. A reminder to put yourself first, maybe even put a hand on your Heart Chakra and say an affirmation, such as “I receive more Love” as you take a deep breath in. You can also choose to keep these stones in your pockets, on your nightstand, or meditate with them. The closer to your body and heart chakra, the better, because that allows the crystals energy to connect with your energy.

My favorite crystals to recommend for Self Love:

Rhodochrosite: This crystal is well known for receiving love and accepting yourself - it is a very soothing, comforting type of love. It is great for emotional healing, inner child healing and bringing in Joy! Allows you to see old hurts with a new perspective and move into forgiveness, allowing for complete healing from a place of empowerment (vs victimization). Helps with rediscovery of talents/passions, becoming more aligned with your true self. It can also be good for calling love into your life, as you are aligning with the frequency of love! Heart Chakra.

Pink Rhodonite: This crystal represents love, generosity, and compassion. Helps with healing past emotional wounds, as well as dispersing energy in current stressful situations. This crystal has a very compassionate and encouraging energy, especially when needing to reconnect with self-worth and courage. It can assist you with discovering hidden talents and exploring what your soul needs. Heart Chakra.

Rose Quartz: A popular Crystal for self-love, unconditional love, and romantic love. It connects with the heart for healing heartbreak, emotional healing, and it has a nurturing energy. It’s considered a feminine support energy, and can feel very soothing and comforting. Some people like it for sleeping with it under their pillow, or keeping in their pocket to help reduce stress and anxiety. Heart Chakra.

Other recommendations: Pink Opal, Garnet, Pink Tourmaline, Ruby, Ruby Zoisite, Malachite, Emerald

Also keep in mind that each person is unique and will connect with crystals a little differently, so use your intuition as well when selecting crystals for yourself and how you work with them. And I always recommend just starting with one crystal at a time, to see how your mind-body-spirit responds to it. That way when you feel the shift in your energy, you’ll know which crystal works well for you!
