As I struggle this week with anxiety, I find myself turning to my crystal healers. I love crystals and stones. At the moment celestite and Amethyst are the ones that I find myself being drawn to.
Amethyst is a great stone for keeping calm and healing anxiety.
Amethyst balances highs and lows and promotes emotional wellness. It dispels anger, fear, and anxiety as well as alleviates sadness and grief. It will help you come to terms with grief and heartbreak as well, so if that’s something you are dealing with you should find an amethyst pendant to wear close to your heart.
It may also help you to have sweet dreams and relax you. If you suffer from nightmares or restless sleep you might try putting a tumbled stone in your pillowcase or on the headboard of your bed.
How I’m using Amethyst
I’ve been sleeping with a chunk of raw amethyst on the window sill right above my bed. So far the anxiety has been kept at bay when I’m falling asleep and through dream time.
I have my daily ritual of reading in bed before I go to sleep. If the book is not keeping my attention anxious thoughts begin to creep in. I take the amethyst, lay down, sit it on my heart, and take deep breaths while I repeat to myself “Everything is going to be okay.” Score one for positive thinking.
While taking a relaxing bath, which I do every day because it’s part of my self care routine, I sit tumbled stones around the edge of the tub to create even more relaxation.
I also carry tumbled stones in my pocket! As you can see I really love amethyst and I think it helps me to keep my grasp on sanity and not run around my room yanking my hair out.
