Hi. Could you advice me which crystals would be good to help my son (age 10) cope with separation anxiety, he gets an overwelming fear that he doesn't know where I am and that I'm going to forget him. Thanks.
Thank you for reaching out to us with your question about crystals to help your son with his separation anxiety. First, let me share that crystals are meant to be a complimentary therapy, and should not ever replace treatment by a licensed medical professional. As there are sometimes medical issues that can cause the symptom of anxiety, and I am not licensed to diagnose such things, nor to prescribe treatments, I can only suggest that you rule out any medical issues for his anxiety before working with crystals for the issue, especially if the symptoms have come on suddenly and without any known cause.
Having said that, it sounds like your son may get carried away with the "what ifs" that can come from what we refer to as being "ungrounded" energetically. Black Tourmaline can help with grounding and calming, as well as with providing energetic protection when held, or kept nearby. So, he may want to get a pendant to wear, or have a chunk of it in his room, or even a tumbled stone to hold in his pocket when needed. Here is a link to Black Tourmaline on our site.
Lepidolite is another crystal that people find helpful for calming anxiety. So if the Black Tourmaline is not helpful enough, perhaps try adding Lepidolite with it. And, as these crystals work by absorbing the negative energy of the anxiety, you will want to cleanse and recharge them regularly. Here is a link to information on our site about how to do that. Think of it as the crystal equivalent of wringing out a sponge when it gets full.
I hope this information has been helpful to you.
