Crystals for Stressful Times

It's definitely a time when we are all turning to alternative therapies to help alleviate the mental effects of the pandemic. Crystals are often recommended as part of a holistic approach to healing, and can have a profound effect when used correctly.

Crystals for Healing

Choosing the appropriate crystal for your emotional or physical needs is important as these can change daily so there's no one crystal to help with everything. A presciptive approach is needed, which is why I've compiled this shortlist of crystals based on the emotions and inbalances we are currently experiencing.

The following crystals were also recommended by Stacey Brady, reiki healing practitioner in a recent interview on the Boho Buffalo Blog. For more advice on holistic healing and stress relief watch the interview here:

Coping with Change & Addiction

Amethyst is one of the superstars of the crystal healing world as its SO versatile and is a great choicde for starting a collection. It helps with sleep, illness, stress and connection to the divine.

Amethyst can come in a fusion with other crystals such as Smoky Quartz, Citrine of Clear Quartz. (Citrine is actually a variation of Amethyst).

My favourite pick for dealing with the current pandemic is the Chevron Amethyst as it helps to keep us postive during times of change and fosters stillness and calm. Clear Quartz chevron patterns form this stunning stone which gives it its cleansing energy.

Positive Energy

Smoky Quartz is known for its ability to transmute negative energy to positive energy so it's a great choice if you are currently in a negative environment or if you are working on a more positive mindset. (You can sprinkle smoky quartz around the perimiter of your home to shift and protect it's energy!)

It is a go-to stone to help connect ALL chakras to help balance the whole body.

If you suffer with intense anxirty at this time, keeping howlite close to you at all times may be helpful.
