Please can you help me find a healing crystal for menopause & hot flashes!
Thanks so much.
I truly can relate! I call hot flashes "power surges" — great in the winter, but a little much in the summer :)
There are several crystals that can be of general assistance as you go through this experience. Lapis Lazuli can help to ease the transition, both mentally and physically. Lepidolite and/or Lithium can help to cool and balance the body. Moonstone is a very soothing stone that helps to relieve stress. Many women like Moonstone for its ability to balance hormonal and menstrual cycles.
It would be a great idea to keep a piece of Citrine in your pocket or under your pillow at night. Citrine can help to control hot flashes and balance the yin and yang. Working with the Sacral, Solar-Plexus, and Third-Eye Chakras, Citrine can enhance the energy flow between these chakras, ameliorating symptoms of menopause.
You can also put together an assortment of crystals that help to physically balance the body (hormones included):
Double Terminated Quartz — simultaneously absorb and emit energy in both directions, which can help you to flow with the transition/change.
The combination of Citrine and Amethyst in one stone, also called Ametrine, not only help to balance the body, but to cool and soothe.
Carnelian helps to balance the Sacral chakra, cleanse, clear and emit healing energy to the reproductive system as it goes through this transition.
Copper is very helpful for balance.
Smoky Quartz helps ground with Earth energies and the Root Chakra. Use Smokey Quartz to absorb and transmute the hot flash energy, which will help to cool the body.
Snowflake Obsidian brings about a balance to body, mind and spirit.
Take comfort in the fact that this will not last forever :) In the meantime, try a few of the suggested crystals to soothe and relieve the symptoms of menopause. Just remember, this is simply a transition to your next exciting phase of life!
With love and crystal blessings,
