How To Use Anxiety Crystals
Indian medicine believes that your body has seven main chakra points, or energy centres, which are invisible energy wheels that keep us healthy. These chakras - root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow, and crown - start from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. Each of these energy centres contains heaps of nerves and organs, so it is important to make sure these energy centres do not get blocked and are always fluid and moving. As crystals carry energy, they can align with a specific chakra to help that area and issue.
Anxiety is caused by a number of things, so understanding what causes it is the first place to start.
If you feel your anxiety is being caused by fear, a loss of power and a feeling in the gut, then you need to concentrate on your solar plexus chakra. So quietly close your eyes, meditate and as you are doing so, hold a citrine to above/on the upper half of your stomach.
You might instead or also feel your anxiety is caused by your base survival "flight or fight" response. In that case, you need to focus on your root chakra. Close your eyes, meditate and as you are doing so, hold a garnet or black tourmaline to anchor your emotions.
Sleep With Them
I have always loved Dumbledore's quote about dreaming, "For in dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let them swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud." It really reminds me of how our mind pursues our dreams in its unconscious state.
Our body and mind are linked and if our mind is chasing our dreams, then our body will as well. Putting a crystal such as a lepidolite tower/obelisk or apophyllite by your bed, encourages its vibes to enter your mind and dream about the possible.
The most convenient way to interact with your crystals is to wear them. That way you are always in contact with them. So you could wear amethyst stud earrings or clear quartz stud earrings, for example.
Relax With Them
Where do you relax the most? When are you most at ease? Everyone has a different answer to this but many find they are most relaxed when they are lying in a bath with epsom salts, perhaps even a candle lit. So perhaps take some amethyst in with you and place it on the side, or lepidolite tower or fluorite....the choice is yours. Why is relaxation with your crystals so important? It helps lower our blood pressure, reduces stress and allows you to accept the universe in, as your mind is not distracted or fighting against things.
