I was wondering if there is a crystal I can use to prevent bad dreams?
There are indeed crystals that can assist in this area!
Manganocalcite helps to prevent and release nightmares. Other stones and crystals that can assist by preventing and/or releasing bad dreams would include Hematite, Smoky Quartz, Ruby and Chrysoprase.
Many times, we do not "prepare" for sleep, but instead, go to bed with a swirl of thoughts replaying our day in our mind. We have all done it. This constant replay can many times affect our sleep patterns and our dreams. Try and take a few minutes to breathe deeply and release all of those daily events from your mind before crawling into bed. Listen to soothing music gently playing - really listen and pay attention, putting all of your focus on the music itself (this tricks your mind, as it focuses it to listen to the music and not to the constant thought chatter in the head). Find a way to release all the stress and tensions of the day before you get into bed. I think this will be very helpful to you, along with the crystals you choose for sleeping.
Here is an article in the HealingCrystals archive that may be of assistance as well.
Wishing you well and sweet dreams :)
