Hi. I would like your help in choosing a crystal. For the last few years I've been suffering from a few different anxiety disorders. My main one is called emetophobia which is the fear of being sick. Obviously I know that crystal healing won't cure this and I should see a doctor. I have always had some sort of anxiety issues and my friend swears by crystal healing to help the emotions. So, in your opinion, which crystal is good for soothing the nerves and for helping anxiety issues? I also have slight depression. I've read a few things and like the sound of the Citrine stone. I also read about one called Sugilite. Your suggestions would be great! Thanks.
Thank you so much for your question about which crystals can help you with your anxiety symptoms. I am so glad that you have decided to work with crystals and see how they can help you. I think that you are really going to like how they can change the atmosphere and your mood just by their presence.
I always believe that the right crystals will choose you...so if you are drawn to Citrineand Sugiliteyou should absolutely try those. Citrinehas a very upbeat, sunny kind of attitude and it works well to alleviate fears since it is associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra. That is where we tend to hold our fears. Sugilitewill help you to release any negative emotions. It works well with the Crown Chakra and can help you to transform any negative thoughts into positive ones.
You might also try Lithium Quartz which is possibly one of the best crystals that you can find for anxieties. I keep one by my bed to help me sleep and it keeps my mind from racing with worries about things that I cannot control. It is a combination of Clear Quartz and lithium that is used in medications. Finally I am going to suggest a Black Tourmaline. Many times our anxieties come from a feeling that we are not in control and Black Tourmalineis excellent for helping us to maintain control of ourselves and our environment. It is also very protective and an excellent grounding crystal.
Since you are new to working with crystals I think that you would like this video about clearing and charging your crystals. Crystals will help you even if you do nothing except take them out of the package. But having an intention for each crystal will enable them to focus on your particular needs - and it is very easy to do. How to Clean and Clear Crystals - YouTube. There are many other videos on our YouTube channel that you may find helpful but I would start with this one.
Thank you again for your question and for your support of Healing Crystals.com. I really hope that you will use it to get a few of these crystals and see how they can make your life so much better. I would love to hear back from you and I will be wishing you many stress free days ahead.
Wishing you lots of love and light!
