My Mother just died. She had lived with us for almost 20 years. Even at 97, her death took us by surprise. I am now in a terrible funk, so tired, and not wanting to do anything but veg in front of the TV or read a no brainer book. What crystals can I use to help raise my vibration and get moving on all the things I need to do? I have used black tourmaline, obsidian, and smokey quartz for grounding and grief, but I need energy.
I am so sorry for your loss. My mother passed away several years ago and I lost another member of my family soon after and it was devastating. I know that you have asked for some advice on crystals that will help to get you moving again but what you really need right now is to take some time for yourself and grieve. Please just take a moment and think about what you have been through over the last few weeks. It doesn't matter how old your Mom was or even how prepared you thought you were for her passing - you are never ready for it. You have probably been staying strong and taking care of everyone else but now you need to stop and take care of yourself. Work and activities are not going to make your sadness go away and while they might distract you for awhile it will all still be there when you stop running around. Please stop worrying about getting things done because it will all still be there - and if it isn't then you'll find something better. I wish someone had suggested that to me when I suffered losses - although I know some of my friends were thinking it.
I am going to suggest that you try using a Rose Quartz and/or a Peridot to help you deal with your feelings. You are using a lot of grounding crystals to cover up your emotions but I believe that you won't begin to feel better until you realize and then release your grief. Snowflake Obsidian is a wonderful crystal for managing grief and I would suggest that you carry one with you. I suspect that you are having trouble sleeping so try keeping a Blue Calciteunder your pillow or by your bed. Some rest and a decent nights sleep will make you feel so much better. Finally I think you would enjoy carrying a crystal that reminds you of your Mom. Did she have a favorite piece of jewelry or a favorite color? You might choose a crystal that you think she would have liked. Or you might just see a crystal that reminds you of her. Keep it with you and when you hold it think of a happy memory. I always picture my Mom on a beach in Florida holding seashells and it reminds me of the good times we had together.
Thank you so much for reaching out to us and for your support of Healing Crystals.com. I am going to be thinking about you a lot and sending you lots of love and light. I think you know that you are never going to stop missing your Mom .... but it will get better. Until then please let me know if there is anything that I can do.
