My First Aid Kit for Stress
We all have it. In today’s world it’s hard to go through any given day without experiencing some level of stress. But what about those there days, when you’re feeling so stressed that you have to remind yourself that you don’t look good in orange jumpsuits? I know I’ve been there!
I have found keeping a stash of healing crystals in my home helps in transforming many challenging situations for me. Today, I will tell you about six of the most readily available crystals you can buy that could help you during some of those stressful situations.
The first two I’m going to mention are my go-to, all time favorite crystals for stress, Selenite and Black Tourmaline combination. I need to credit this discovery to Krista N. Mitchell and her book “Change Your Energy – Healing Crystals for Health, Wealth, Love & Luck”.
Black Tourmaline helps neutralize imbalances and grounds you. It aids in balancing emotions.
Selenite will dissolve energy blocks and purifies the energy. It promotes a feeling of calm and serenity.
Hold the Black Tourmaline in your dominant, or giving hand, while holding the Selenite in your receiving hand. What you will find happening is you are receiving feelings of calm and serenity, while giving away the feelings of stress and allowing more balance and grounding in your energy. You can do this anytime. You can be holding these while meditating, or while watching TV, standing in line at the grocery, taking a walk, chatting with friends, etc. The other cool thing is the closer you bring your two hands to one another you will actually feel a vibration happening similar to bring two magnets together.
Other great crystals to have nearby in your home, office, pocket, or jewelry for stress and anxiety are:
Amethyst, this is known as a Master Healer and an “All Purpose Stone”. Working with this crystal will shift negative thought patterns and behaviors and also help keep your thoughts from going down the rabbit hole of “what ifs”.
Citrine is generally thought of as the “Wealth or Merchant Stone”. But it is also known as the “Feel Better Stone” when it comes to stress and anxiety. This crystal will absorb the negative energy and promote a positive mindset.
Rose Quartz is great to have around during stressful periods. When we are stressed or in great anxiety it can be hard to remember to take care of ourselves. Rose Quartz is the crystal of self-love, love of self. It is also one of the best crystals for relationship troubles or emotional stress.
Smoky Quartz is a powerful crystal. It relieves tension, stress, anxiety, aids in eliminating worry and doubt and negative thinking. Having a piece of Smoky Quartz in your office can be a lifesaver when trying to make an important deadline or meeting.
Of course there are other great ways to use these crystals, but here we are focusing on stress and anxiety. There are also other crystals that help with stress and anxiety, such as Blue Lace Agate, Snowflake Obsidian and Sodalite to name a few. However, the ones mentioned above are easy to find at any metaphysical bookstore or crystal shop without having to hunt all over for them.
Wishing you a stress free day!
