I'm new to healing crystals A friend of mine got me interested in them. She is a firm believer in there power & I'm fascinated by them. I joined a forum & was asking what colors would best help me with my problems.
I suffer from bipolar (major depression) & major anxiety. I was told that the colors that would best help me are Labradorite & Citrine & also Lithium phantom Quartz. What I would like to know is this right & do you have these crystals? Also I have heard that some people wear them on a necklace is this true? if not do you keep them with you as in your pocket? And last do they come with instructions on how to cleans them?
Thank you for your time & I will be looking for your reply.
Greetings, and thank you for stropping by our website. Anxiety and depression can be very complex issues which sometimes take years to work out. Since I am not a doctor and cannot offer medical advice, I have to recommend some sort of therapy. That being said, I can tell you from personal experience that crystals can help with depression issues. You can wear one as a pendant, carry one in your pocket, sleep with one under a pillow, meditate with one in your hand or on a chakra, or all of the above if it suits you, and I can tell you that I have done them all.
Lithium Quartz is so named for its Lithium content, which is found in antidepressant medications, and thus has a very soothing vibration. Lithium Quartz can be used to balance the brain and emotions, and uplift the mental and emotional bodies. Lithium Quartz gently brings repressed issues to the surface so they can be addressed and resolved. Working with the Heart Chakra, Lithium Quartz also cleanses and activates all the chakras, and can sometimes help with insomnia. You can see our selection of Lithium Quartz at the following page:
Citrine is has a warm and sunny vibration that can assist with issues of anxiety, due to its energies of optimism and joy. Focusing on the Solar-Plexus Chakra, Citrine offers support for any negative experiences. Citrine is a great ally for activating the imagination and channeling negative emotions into creative pursuits, thereby bringing in a more positive outlook, which in turn can attract synchronicities that flow with ones desires. Citrine is also known to assist in the release of repressed anger, which can often be a hidden cause for anxiety. Citrine is also used to attract abundance. You can take a look at our Citrine items at this page:
Labradorite is a stone of the Third-Eye Chakra and as such, it heightens intuition and may enhance psychic abilities. Meditation with Labradorite can help one to discover and dispel any illusions that are exerting control in ones life. Labradorite is one of the best stones for bringing up past life issues that may be causing emotional problems, so they can be rectified in the current lifetime. Labradorite can balance and protect the aura, and is also good for its assisting in the repair of fractured aspects of the personality, including the ego, so they can be integrated into the whole self. We have some nice Labradorite pieces here:
The one crystal I am suprised was not recommended to you is Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is, in my opinion, the most important crystal for those experiencing any kind of suffering. The strongest Heart Chakra Crystal of the mineral kingdom and a great heart healer, Rose Quartz is used for transmuting negative energy and replacing it with love energy. Rose Quartz can facilitate the release of pent up emotions such as grief, anger, resentment, and other negative emotions that can cause dis-ease. Meditating with Rose Quartz can encourage love, compassion, and forgiveness, but for the self, which is more important than many people realize. You can see our selection of Rose Quartz items here (I really enjoy the Rose Quartz Heart;):
When working with crystals, especially for the issues you mentioned, it is important to cleanse them regularly. To see our article on that subject, see this page:
