At one point or another we have all suffered from some sort of anxiety. I personally am anxiety prone, I blame my grandmother, she watched me all the time when I was a kid and she worries about everything…. And I mean everything. Anyway, being tightly wound and worried was not a way for me to go through life. So I decided to write a blog post about the best crystals to help you deal with anxiety. Please note that these crystals should not replace any medication without consulting the proper medical professional. So if you are ready to breathe a sigh of relief then lets get reading!
Ok friends, the first stone that I am going to suggest to you, is Tourmaline, which has been used for centuries for protection. Tourmaline is a lovely black crystal that is known to help release negative emotions, which can include grief, anxiety, and even depression, not to mention Tourmaline helps to filter outside influences and helps to rid negative energies (which is great if you are in an environment that seems to drain you emotionally from time to time)
Sodalite is a beautiful blue stone, that is great for meditation. This stone helps to encourage positive changes within your life, and I’m sure like me most of you could use help making certain changes in your life, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Solidate is also helpful for panic attacks. As someone who has suffered from panic attacks on and off for almost ten years, anything that can help ease them is a godsend, and solidite is one of the stones that can help lessen the severity of panic attacks.
If you have trouble letting go and relaxing, Chrysoprase is the crystal for you. It is believed to promote relaxation. As you might imagine, a relaxed state of mind can work wonders to reduce anxiety and depression. It is said if you hold the Chrysoprase stone in your right palm and take slow deep breaths, you may feel completely relaxed. If there is a time where you are beginning to feel overwhelmed and anxious, wearing the Chryopsae will help you feel more relaxed and focused.
4. Blue Lace Agate
Blue Lace Agate is one of the best crystals for relieving anxiety. The beautiful blue color helps one to feel calming and soothing vibes that bring peace of mind. This is a great crystal to meditate with to help calm your nerves and reduce anxiety. If you suffer from ongoing anxiety you can wear a blue lace agate to help you from becoming overwhelmed.
Oh Amethyst my absolute favorite crystal and a frequent guest on this blog, makes the list again. (I mean, guys, this stone does everything, which makes it one of the reasons I love it so much) This is a stone that is known to have healing powers and is effective for helping with anxiety. I know for me, it keeps my mind from racing and keeps me calm (most of the time, although I find when it fails to do so, I have forgotten to charge it. If you want to learn more about charging and cleansing your crystals, check out our blog post here)
This reddish orange beauty can help you clear your fears and help fight negative thoughts. If you are someone who suffers from depression, a Carnelian can help you with dealing with feelings of depression.
