Crystals for anxiety is a collection of my favourite stones that I have personally used to assist with managing my anxiety, and therefore highly recommend. All crystals are available to buy in our shop, Gemstone and Tarot and I hope that you find this post useful.
Crystals on their own will not help you manage your anxiety
You can read about my personal struggles with anxiety by clicking here however, I need to clear about one thing.
You will never be rid of anxiety. This is because anxiety is a natural function within us to alert us to potential danger. There’s a whole host of reasons why it can start making your life a misery. Fortunately, I’m here to tell you that these feelings of impending doom are temporary. I’ve been there and now I’m back in control and more importantly, I’m managing my anxiety. Furthermore, I’m living my life and enjoying who I am and where I am!
I’m now able to successfully coach others with anxiety due to my personal experience and certifications. Find out about my anxiety coach service here.
It takes a lot of effort to recover from General Anxiety Disorder. Choosing crystals for anxiety alone will not help you.
Spending £1 on a crystal is not going to help you manage your anxiety!
Combining crystals with other wellbeing practices will most certainly help you. The wellbeing practices that I’m listing below are a part of my regular self-care routine.
Clicking on a link below will take you to further information on how you can benefit from them.
- Practicing mindfulness and focusing on the present moment is crucial to managing your anxiety. Please don’t waste your energy reflecting on the past when you can’t change it! You can learn from it and move on. Also, there is no point in worrying about the future. How many times have you rode that drama roundabout and it never came true?
- Practicing meditation to quieten the chitter chatter that makes you anxious. Quieten your mind and you will stop those negative feelings from growing. Focus on a crystal and practice mindful meditation.
- Reiki, both giving and receiving
- Practicing gratitude as there is so much to be thankful for in life that you don’t realise is surrounding you in abundance
- Tarot reading as a form of self-therapy
- Giving to others – I just believe so much that it’s important to share knowledge to help others
- Get creative because you forget about things when you’re being creative. Absorb yourself in the present moment by using your senses hence no worries. Crystals come into play with the creation of my gemstone healing bracelets.
Crystals for Anxiety
Obsidian is one of the most powerful of crystals to help repel negative energy caused by irrational fear, which heightens your anxiety.
It will also provide you with the determination required to break habits of negative thinking. For every negative thought, catch it and dissolve its energy by replacing it with a positive thought.
Sunstone is perfect for gentle healing of your troubled emotions.
Paranoia, confusion, hate and depression are just some of the possible negative emotions that anxiety can cause within.
The anxiety crystal of Sunstone will help with balancing your emotions so that you can begin to find some love and peace. Together with the anxiety crystal of Obsidian, it makes a perfect combination to help you regain control of your mind.
Citrine is a perfect anxiety crystal to give you willpower and the confidence for you to manage your anxiety, especially if it means facing your fears.
For example, if you’re attending CBT therapy and they challenge you to face your fears, why not take a piece of Citrine in your pocket as your chosen anxiety crystal to help you with your confidence?
Unakite with its pink and green hues is an anxiety crystal that resonates beautifully with your heart chakra. It’s all about balance and transformation.
Unakite is great for assisting you with staying focused on the present moment. There’s no worry or irrational fear when you are simply ‘being‘ in the present moment.
Anxiety crystals in no particular order
Blue Chalcedony is a very good anxiety stone to help you communicate your fears.
I’ll never forget wanting to tell my friends that I want to go out with them, but I think something bad will happen. Instead, I refrained and held in my fears due to being fearful. Ah, the roundabout of anxiety!
Your thoughts carry so much emotion that builds into irrational fear as you ride that drama roundabout.
Blue Chalcedony will help you to communicate your thoughts with confidence. Whether it’s speaking or writing, this anxiety crystal will work wonders. As the saying goes, ‘better out than in!’
Amethyst is a purple coloured Quartz. Check out Clear Quartz below to find out why it’s known as the master healing crystal.
Amethyst will calm your overthinking mind to bring inner peace. It will assist you with your intention of managing your anxiety. Furthermore, it will reduce fear induced thoughts and offer you protection while trusting your intuition.
Clear Quartz is your master healing, crystal gemstone. You can use it for anything!
When talking about the formation of atoms, clear quartz is perfection! Also, it reflects all colours of the light spectrum therefore, working with each of your chakras. You can use it on its own or team it up with any other crystal to amplify healing properties. For example: –
You’re finding it a struggle to go to work today and your worries are overwhelming you. If your problem is due to a lack of confidence, carry clear Quartz with Citrine to give your confidence an extra boost.
