Top 10 Healing Crystals For Stress & Anxiety
Does crystal therapy assist with managing anxiety?
Advocates of healing crystals believe that semi-precious stones and other crystals promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing. They argue that mental and physical conditions, including stress and anxiety, are a consequence of energy imbalances in the body. Crystals are used to redress these imbalances. They do so by interacting with the body’s energy field, or chakra. During a therapy session, a crystal healing stone is held in the hand or placed on the chakra points around the body. The stone releases positive energy into the body while negative energy, which is associated with disease, flows out. This induces feelings of peace, calm and relaxation and reduces feelings of stress, thereby healing and restoring the body’s balance.
How do you use them?
One of the best ways to use crystals for anxiety is to wear them against the skin. Having crystals close to the body can keep you surrounded in a protective and healing energy. If you are feeling anxious you can also sit and meditate or play with a crystal worry stone and let it soak up all that anxious energy. Or find an energy healer that uses crystals in their sessions.
