Crystals for Stress and Anxiety

Jessica Roth

Crystals for anxiety.jpg

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!

Crystals for Abundance

Using Crystals to Attract Abundance

One of the most common requests when I am doing crystal readings (other than which crystals are best for self-love), is which crystals to use for money, abundance, and prosperity. It’s a topic that everyone deals with every day, yet many consider it an embarrassing or shameful topic, and it can also feel not very spiritual to talk about money. 

However, it’s something everyone needs in their daily life to exchange for the things they need or want. Basically, it’s an exchange of energy, but many tie their self-worth to money… and therefore can also have a hard time actually receiving money – bummer, right?! But since receiving money can sometimes be associated with “being greedy” (depending on beliefs and perspective), it can be common for people to reject abundance unknowingly based on subconscious beliefs. 

With that said, when I’m asked which crystals I recommend for attracting money, I’m going to tell you that it will require more than just having the right crystals… It’s a combination of the crystals, paired with intention, consistency, and working on your mindset and money beliefs (as well as changing old patterns).

So how do the crystals help?

They do a few things: First, the crystals help to rebalance your energy and chakras, specifically if you are subconsciously tying your self-worth to money (often relating to the solar plexus and heart chakras). As the crystals rebalance your chakras, it’s easier for your subconscious to release low vibration energy relating to low self-esteem, and to release mindset or money beliefs that aren’t serving you. This is the releasing/shifting aspect, so that you can make room for receiving abundance. So in addition to those aspects, the crystals will simultaneously raise your vibration and amplify your intentions, which is the attracting part, while also helping you to create new money beliefs.

Which is pretty cool!

These are the crystals I work with the most for prosperity. When choosing from the crystals below, go with your intuition and select the one(s) that call to you. And then pair the crystals with an intention for what you want to bring into your life. Make a ritual, write about it, meditate on it, sing about it… whatever feels best for you. Just make sure that you are consistent, every single day! It’s the consistent intention of focusing on what you want, with the crystals acting as an energetic tool, that creates the most impactful results.

Pyrite: This crystal is a grounding and earthy stone, with a bit of fire. It helps boost creativity while balancing the masculine with the feminine energies, the perfect blend for attracting money through heart-centered actions. It assists with self-confidence and empowerment, allowing you to tap into your natural abilities. Attracts wealth and abundance. Supports the three lower chakras: Root, Sacral and Solar Plexus.

Malachite: This crystal has copper elements in it, which means it is extremely beneficial for transmuting energy and strengthening your energetic field. Malachite is great for protecting against negative energies as well. It promotes will-power and taking inspired action (balancing the masculine and feminine energies), which is the perfect blend for attracting money from heart-centered business ventures. It helps with turning creative dreams into reality. Connects with the Heart Chakra and Solar Plexus

Rutilated Quartz: This crystal is Clear Quartz with rutile threads, so it has the combination of attributes. It’s great for cleansing your energy and connecting with high vibrational energy. It encourages amplification, acceleration and expanding awareness. Programmable for attunement with intentions and affirmations. It is good for business/money, and manifesting into physical form. It also helps with intuition, expanding consciousness, and awakening to a higher purpose (actives the higher mind). All Chakras, especially the Solar Plexus and Crown Chakras.

Citrine: This crystal boosts confidence and self-esteem, while enhancing happiness, abundance, and optimism. It is great for bringing energy into form (manifesting into physical). Helps with increased clarity, stimulating the imagination, and is energizing. Encourages creativity, and it’s an overall great stone for business. Solar Plexus Chakra.

Green Aventurine: This crystal assists with releasing old patterns so that one can move forward. It’s a very calming and soothing stone, great for reducing anger, anxiety or a hectic lifestyle. It is also helpful in healing emotional traumas. Some call it the stone of opportunity and luck, especially when looking to increase prosperity. It can help with balancing the body systems. Heart Chakra.

Quartz: This crystal is great for amplifying other crystals, and programming with intentions. It also helps connect you with your own intuition and receiving guidance. It helps with clarity and focus, and bringing things to the surface. Great for cleansing your energy field. All Chakras.

Additional suggestions: Jade, Peridot, Topaz, Tigers Eye

Now that you have an idea of which crystals to use, play around with these recommendations and see which you feel the most drawn to… And then try these suggestions for incorporating crystals into your daily routine (find a ritual that works for you):

  • Meditate and hold the crystal for 10-15 minutes, once or twice a day, repeating your money mantra / intention

  • Keep the crystal next to you on your nightstand (so that it’s inside your energy aura while you sleep - this is great for releasing while you sleep)

  • Intuitively create a Crystal Grid using the crystals you’ve selected, pairing it with your money mantra / intention

  • Keep the crystals in your pockets throughout the day, and each time you feel them or notice them, repeating your money mantra / intention

  • Wear jewelry that has the suggested crystals (like the Prosperity Bracelet or Citrine Necklace), and touch throughout the day, repeating your money mantra / intention

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!

Wishing you lots of Prosperity and Abundance!

Crystals for Peaceful Sleep

Crystals for peaceful sleep

Do you struggle with sleep issues?

It’s not uncommon for us to deal with insomnia, falling asleep, or have trouble sleeping through the night. Most of us have a lot on our minds, and when the rest of the world is quiet, it seems like that’s when our thoughts are the loudest. There is something about the quiet of the night that amplifies thoughts, fears, and anxieties. I get it… I’m one of those that can get caught up in it! This is also the time of day when those who are creative often seem to have ideas and productivity activated (I know, because I’m also one of them!). All these things can make sleep difficult…

So how can we get settle for the night and let go of any stress, tensions, overactive minds and thoughts?

If you aren’t familiar with Crystal Healing, this is when crystals are used to reset and rebalance your mind-body-soul (and overall energy system). The energy of a crystal vibrates at a stable frequency/vibration (dominant oscillary rate), whereas our bodies have many different frequencies and our energy is constantly fluctuating. It is very easy for our body/energy to subconsciously match the frequencies of things in our environment, whether people, emotions, nature, etc.

When we bring a stable energy into our energy aura, our energy begins to shift and match the new frequency – this can be positive or negative, depending on if it is a higher vibration frequency or lower vibration frequency. As you might guess, lower vibration frequencies aren’t going to make you feel very good. This can be caused by things like negative thoughts or emotions, radiation emitted from electronics, stress caused by internal or external influences, and many other things.

Crystals have a higher vibrational frequency, which helps bring us back into balance! And each individual crystal will be a little different, which is why certain crystals are used for certain things. It’s because each type of crystal will vibrate at a frequency that brings a certain part of your mind-body-soul back into its most ideal and aligned vibrational frequency.  

With all that said, which crystals might you use for enhancing peaceful sleep? Here are some crystals that work really well for prepping your mind-body-spirit for sleep…

 

Blue Lace Agate: This crystal is very calming and helps balance emotional energy. It can help with tempering anger and frustration, bringing you back to feeling centered. If you are feeling frazzled, this would be a good crystal to work with for calming your nervous system. Also connects well with the Throat Chakra. 

Celestite: I love keeping a large Celestite geode on my nightstand. This crystal connects you with the higher (angelic) realms. It is a gentle, calming and uplifting energy, while it also helping you to feel safe and protected. It can assist with overcoming fears (make the intention to release peacefully while sleeping). It’s also great for purifying and cleansing energy (auras and spaces) while you sleep. This is a great crystal for meditating, or keeping on your nightstand next to your bed to help with sleep. Connects well with the Third Eye and Crown Chakras.

Rose Quartz: This is a popular Crystal for self-love, unconditional love, and compassion. It assists with heart healing, emotional healing, and anxiety. Overall, it has a very nurturing energy and is considered to be a more feminine support energy. Some people like it for sleeping with it under their pillow, or holding on their chest to help reduce stress and anxiety. Connects best with the Heart Chakra.

Amazonite: This crystal is soothing, calming and great for instilling peace. It balances the flow of our feminine-masculine energies, which can often be out of balance by the end of the day. It is reminiscent of water, with tranquil and relaxing energy. This crystal helps with reducing anxiety, stress and conflict. It connects well with the Heart and Throat Chakras, which means it can be great for dissolving tension in the neck, jaw and shoulders while sleeping. I love having Amazonite under my pillow since I hold most of my stress in my neck/jaw/shoulders.

Magnetite / Lodestone: This crystal contains iron, which means that it is wonderful for grounding and connecting with Mother Earth energies. Oftentimes by the end of the day, we are so disconnected from the Earth and feeling grounded (living in our heads), that this would be a great crystal to bring you back into feeling centered in your body. It also has a slight magnetic charge, which helps bring energies and polarities back into alignment. It helps remove blocks within the body’s meridans, so that energy can begin flowing again. It is also used for relaxing the body and muscles, which may also be a wonderful benefit for sleeping more peacefully. Connects best with the Root Chakra, but also helps balance all the Chakras.

Now that you have an idea of which crystals to use, play around with these recommendations and see which you feel the most drawn to… Start there! And then try these for incorporating crystals into your sleep routine (find a ritual that works for you):

  • Meditate and hold the crystal for 10-20 minutes before bed

  • Keep the crystal next to you on your nightstand (so that it’s inside your energy aura while you sleep)

  • If the crystal fits under your pillow, you can sleep with it in your pillowcase (potential option if your mind is overactive)

  • You can hold it in your hand(s) as you fall asleep

  • You can hold it on your chest/heart chakra as you fall asleep (potential option when feeling anxious)

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! Let me know which crystal brought you peaceful sleep!
