31 May Crystals That Assist With Healing
As a psychic, people ask me many questions about how to heal and let go of negative thoughts and emotions. These questions are are not always easy to answer, as the healing process is different for everyone. Some people can release difficult feelings and move on with little effort, while others will hold onto the pain forever. However, I have found that there are many things you can do to help facilitate the healing process. For example, meditation is a powerful tool. You can meditate on the angry/hurt feelings, find understanding in them and then release them. Exercise is another great way to process emotional energy – going for a run, performing yoga or lifting weights can help ground out excess energy and increase endorphins, putting one in a much better frame of mind. Of course some people choose counseling to process difficult emotions. One thing that people usually do not consider for their healing regiment are crystals. Crystals can be very subtle in their healing effects but make no mistake they are quite powerful. There are many types of crystals and they all excel at different jobs. Depending on what’s ailing you, here are a few crystals that may be able to help on your healing journey.
Addiction: One crystal that I truly love is the purple beauty, amethyst. In Greek the word amethyst actually means “not drunken.” It is believed to help a person with alcohol addiction. Labradorite is another crystal that can help to detoxify the body of tobacco, alcohol and drugs.
Anger: The green crystal malachite is an opaque crystal that works to absorb excess energies, such as anger. Malachite can pull out and discharge old emotional patterns and negative energies from the heart chakra and help release physical health blocks, such as heart or lung problems.
Anxiety: Anxiety is the overproduction of nervous energy and therefore needs a stone that can absorb this energy. Amber is great for this, especially for social anxieties. Try to wear amber to the next social setting that sets your adrenaline pumping into overtime.
Boundaries: Labradorite is also a great stone for boundary setting. It is a gorgeous blue color and balances the throat chakra, encouraging those who use it to speak their truth, and hold their own boundaries in check.
Forgiveness: Blue agate is a great crystal for forgiveness. It can assist when you are seeking forgiveness or when you need to grant forgiveness to another. It can promote self-acceptance, speaking one’s truth and healing an angry heart.
Grief: Apache Tears seems to go hand-in-hand with the emotion of grief. Apache Tears acts as an emotional boundary setter, allowing for your heart to have the time and space it needs to grieve. Apache Tears can absorb grief, helping to release it from one’s body.
Negativity: Black Tourmaline is an excellent source for repelling negativity. Use it around the entrances to your home to dispel negativity from entering or even to clear out old residual energies from tenants long gone.
Rejection: The lovely crystal pink rose quartz can help with the pain of rejection. Rose Quartz promotes compassion, self-love and emotional healing, especially when centered on relationships. This lovely stone can help heal the heart and get you back in the love game again.
Stress: In addition to helping with addiction, an amethyst crystal is wonderful for releasing stress, anxiety and anger. This can be particularly true of work-related stresses. Amethyst can also help one analyze emotions before acting on them.
Trust: Sodalite is another brilliant blue stone that helps keep the lines of communication clear, open and honest. It aligns with the throat chakra, enabling one to speak his or her own truth.
