When do you feel most anxious? Is it when your little muscles tense up in stress? fear? social awkwardness? Whatever the cause, it is time to focus on the solution. Calming those constricted muscles will have you melting in a soothing pile of relaxation before you know it.
Can Crystals really help with Anxiety?
Healing crystals can help with anxiety caused by the stresses in your life. Certain crystals have been known to vibrate with a certain calming energy. This energy can help you align your own anxious vibrations to a soothing one.
Even if you don believe in crystal healing powers, just having a focus stone will help remind you to physically calm your body. Like Chinese medicine balls and fidget spinners, calming crystals help you to channel your turmoil out of your body.
Unlike synthetic tools, crystals have the natural advantage of direct Earth energies. We all need to recharge and ground our energies with nature to stay grounded, balanced and to live in the present moment.
What Crystals are Good for Calming Anxiety?
Here are the crystals that are the best for calming anxiety. They have been tested by healers over the centuries and these are the favorites.
Of course, like anything in the metaphysical realm, trust your own instincts and do your own experiments to find your favorite calming crystals.
Change your Mood with Calming Stones
Once you have collected your favorite calming crystals, you are armed with the ability to switch your mood from a frantic stress to a collected cool. Here are a few suggestions on how to put your crystal collection to use:
Whether you are anxious about an upcoming test, an oral presentation or a first date, you can program your calming crystal to bring you a sense of peace. Whenever you touch the crystal throughout the day, you will be reminded to take a deep breath and let your stress drain to the center of the Earth.
Wear your calming crystal in jewelry form. Let it touch your skin to vibrate a steady energy whenever your body spikes in adrenaline. While everyone else will take you for a stylish fashion idol, you will know that your choice in accessories is for a power beyond the physical appeal.
Perhaps you are worried about a lost pet, an ill relative or an impending storm. Find the biggest piece of crystal in your calming stone of choice and hold it to visualize your desired outcome. Channel your positive energies and thoughts into the crystal and out into the Universe. Should your desired outcome somehow not be granted, at least your mood will shift and you will be able to curb your worry into a positive mindframe.
The most popular practice to calm your mind these days is to meditate. Choose your favorite calming crystals to meditate with and hold the chosen stones during meditation. As you clear your mind, let the energies of the crystal fill the void with a cooling rush of relief.
Another popular energy healing practice involves crystal grids. For this ritual, you will need several pieces of your calming crystals that you can place around your body as you lie in the circle of stones. You can use tumbled stones, raw stones, larged polished pieces or even pieces of jewelry to place strategically in a grid around your aura. As you lie in this safety net of nurturing energies, imagine all of your stress releasing the hold on your brain and muscles in your body.
Depending on what area of your life is stressing you out, you can focus specifically on the calming certain chakras. Perhaps you are anxious about your love life, place a Rose Quartz over your Heart Chakra. If you are in emotional turmoil, place Moonstone over your Solar Plexus Chakra. If you are over-thinking everything, place Lepidolite over your Third Eye Chakra. And, the list goes on.
Experiences with Calming Crystals
My most recent triumph with a calming crystal took place during my motorcycle riding test. Considering I had not taken an official test in over two decades, I was extremely nervous of being watched and judged by the class and instructors.
The morning before the test, I programmed my Aquamarine necklace with my calming intentions. I wore this jewel close to my heart, touching my skin (especially since you are not supposed to have items dangling while riding!).
Throughout the practice and during the test course, I would remember the Aquamarine crystal working silently at my Heart Chakra. Everytime I was reminded of the stone, I would take a deep breath and imagine all of my nerves coming to a standstill. This helped calm my worries and ride in a relaxed mode.
Whatever you want to attribute to my passing of the rigorous motorcycle test, all I know is that some of my classmates did not pass. They also did not use crystals to calm their anxieties.
Use every advantage that you can get and elevate your mood to a spectacular calm. Like an elated Angel, you can watch as stressors glide right off of your relaxed nerves with the magic power of healing crystals.
