Hello, I would like to find out what crystals would be good for me. My star sign is cancer and I have mild bipolar illness (mostly anxiety/depression/angry at times). The meds are doing a pretty good job at the moment, except I feel very tired/flat and no motivation to do housework or exercise. I have two young daughters to care for and I work, so I need more energy to be a better mum and wife. Thanks so much for your time :)
Thank you for contacting Healing Crystals with your crystal question. By your question, I can tell that you are already under the care of a medical professional, however I must still share the standard disclaimer that I am not a medical professional and cannot diagnose nor prescribe medical treatment for illnesses. Crystals are a complimentary therapy that should never replace medical treatment by a licensed professional.
There, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let me say that my heart goes out to you for all you are struggling with. I have close family members who have struggled with trying to find the right medication, diet, etc to help battle crippling anxiety and depression. The brain is an amazing and complicated (and sometimes frustrating) thing, isn’t it?
For your Star Sign of Cancer energy, I suggest Chrysoprase and Chrysocolla. Chrysoprase helps Cancers find balance and calm. Chrysocolla helps Cancers with anger and can also be soothing, in a non-drowsy, non-medication kind of way.
A lovely crystal to help with achieving balance in all areas is Zebra Jasper. And when you see pictures of it, you’ll know why—it’s got opposite colors and energies within one stone and the centering and balancing effects are quite helpful. If possible, wearing it or having it throughout your home might be most helpful.
Lepidolite is a helpful crystal for dealing with anxiety and depression. It’s crystalized lithium, so you get the depression-easing and anxiety soothing benefits of lithium without pharmaceuticals. Again, having it around you is a good idea. It’s a very fragile crystal, so it doesn’t work well for jewelry or pocket stones.
For energy and motivation, the cheerful energy of Sunstone can be beneficial. Sunstone is still somewhat fragile, but I have seen tumbled pocket stone versions of it. Or, wearing it as jewelry could be helpful.
I hope you find these recommendations helpful and that they bring you relief. One more thing that is very important for this type of crystal healing, is clearing your crystals regularly as they will be absorbing lots of dense energies and can lose effectiveness quickly from them, if not cleared regularly. Here is a link to articles about clearing crystals as well as a link to a video that is helpful for a simple but effect clearing method.
I wish you light and love in your journey. Please contact us again if we can help you further.
