Calm: 6 Crystals for Releasing Anxiety
As we journey through this funny thing called life there are going to be moments when anxiety sets in. Sometimes the anxiety hangs above us like a dark cloud, but other times it can feel like we’re drowning in it. Anxiety is inevitable. Anxiety is something that happens to everyone at one point or another, but some of us are better at keeping our heads above the water when it comes.
There are so many different practices someone can use to help themselves through their anxiety, many of which can be enhanced using high vibration crystal energy. Whether your preference is meditation, journaling, doing some relaxing breathing techniques, using essential oil aromatherapy, or whatever else your heart and soul may desire, the right combination of crystals can help guide your energy back to neutral and where you feel calm.
Crystals help to release negative energy that stresses us out, sometimes this is energy that we weren’t even aware we were holding onto!
If you’ve been having trouble releasing your anxiety, try these 6 crystals to help you say goodbye to anxiety.
Amazonite is a crystal that has long been known to help you resolve inner conflict. A lot of anxiety comes from our own internal dialogue.
Amazonite can help you to think clearly about what your true wants and needs are, satisfying those pesky voices in your subconscious that are indecisive at best.
Amazonite is good at helping your Chakras to become (and stay!) balanced. When we begin to feel out of balance, it gives anxiety a really great opening to wreck havoc. Worry and fear are two of anxiety’s best friends. Amazonite helps to dispel worry and fear by increasing your self-esteem and by soothing traumas.
Blue Lace Agate
Blue Lace Agate is the crystal of soothing. Whether it’s your fears, traumas, anger, or anything else that has been holding you in a state of anxiousness, Blue Lace Agate will soften those hard edges.
Blue Lace Agate is especially good at clearing out blockages in your Throat Chakra. The Throat Chakra, when blocked, hinders your ability to communicate openly and honestly. When suffering from anxiety it can feel like you’re in isolation and that nobody understands what you’re feeling or what you’re going through. Blue Lace Agate helps you find your voice during times of anxiety, encouraging you to speak your truth!
Amethyst is one of the most commonly recognized crystals, and for a good reason! This stunning crystal is widely known for its gentle but powerful energy. Amethyst has energy that soothes your mind, body, and soul, making it a great tool for releasing anxiety.
One effect anxiety can have on you is making it difficult to fall asleep. The lack of zzz’s can definitely create a vicious cycle that contributes to the negative impact anxiety can have on every part of your life. Amethyst can be tucked under your pillow to battle insomnia as it will induce tranquility and peaceful dreaming.
Lepidolite gives off an energy that helps to stabilize your mood. You can be especially prone to anxiety when your mood is constantly all over the place. Stability isn’t always easy to come by, but doing some energy work with your crystals can help you find and maintain your center.
Lepidolite aids in meditation and releasing negative thought patterns. When we get stuck in patterns of negativity, anxiety comes right along with it. Whether we are constantly thinking negatively about ourselves, our jobs, our relationships, we are holding ourselves in a constant state of anxiousness. Lepidolite will help you to let go of those negative feelings and help you to move forward and through your anxiety.
Aquamarine gives off soothing, calming and cleansing vibrations. Reminiscent of the ocean, Aquamarine has a gentle ebb and flow of energy that will leave you feeling completely relaxed. We aren’t always aware of just how much tension we hold in our bodies when we are experiencing anxiety, and it can have such a negative impact on our energy.
Aquamarine is great for resolving conflict, either internally or with others as it gives you a sense of courage and patience. Aquamarine is also a crystal known for being empowering, which can help you rise above the issues you are anxious about and tackle issues head on.
Chrysocolla has an interesting ability to help dispel the feeling of guilt. Many people have anxiety that stems from feelings of guilt, which can be an especially difficult emotion to work through. Chrysocolla encourages compassion and forgiveness, for ourselves and for others. Many people feel as if because they are experiencing anxiety they aren’t strong, but just a little bit of compassion for ourselves during those times of especially high anxiety goes a long way!
Anxiety isn’t a one size fits all kind of thing. Each person experiences it in their own way, and for their own reasons.
