I am a 46 year old female. I have been diagnosed with transverse myelitis(swelling of the spinal cord) I also have degenerative disc disease and herniated disc, also having anxiety and panic attacks. I have also had tremendous stress in my life husband had a stroke in 08 the i was diagnosed in 09 and now my 8 yr old daughter has had seizures, so as you can tell I have been through a lot. I prayed to God all the time and sometimes I get the feeling it is just not enough can you please help me with some advise? I had a rose quartz years ago when i was in my 20s and it helped me get through a lot. Would this be an option?
In need of your help Lori
Thank you for sharing your situation with us. This is a lot to cope with, but I am sure that everyone who reads this, including myself, will be sending you thoughts, prayers and healing energy.
So please take comfort in the fact that while you may feel alone in these challenges, you definitely are not alone.
As you mentioned, Rose Quartz, would definitely be a help for you and your family, in many ways. You can place Rose Quartz in the corners of your home to soothe the area with loving, calm energy. Rose Quartz is also a supportive stone. I often refer to the energy of Rose Quartz as the loving mother, wrapping you up in a soft blanket, keeping you safe, warm, and feeling loved.
With all that is going on around you, it is no wonder that you are having issues of anxiety. There are some crystals that can help to calm the panic and anxiety energy that you feel. Lepidolite contains trace amounts of Lithium, which is a natural anti-anxiety mineral. There are also natural Lithium in Quartz crystals that contain a generous helping of Lithium, which can also calm the feelings of panic and anxiety as well as ease depression and that feeling of being overwhelmed.
Blue colored stones, like Blue Lace Agate, Blue Calcite or Lapis Lazuli also have a very calming effect. They keep you in a place of peace while dealing with stressful or tension filled issues. Although I am not sure what type of seizures your daughter is currently experiencing, I feel that something like Blue Lace Agate may help to calm her, so please consider that for her.
For other recommendations, please read these Healing Crystal Archived articles which may share other crystal suggestions:
For your spinal issues, there are a number of recommendations I would like to make. Amber is often used with issues of pain and could very well ease some of your physical pain as well. Amethyst
is another used often for pain relief. Rose Quartz and Clear Quartz can be used to ease pain as well.
Tourmaline helps to strengthen and tone the muscular and skeletal systems. Amazonite can reduce muscular spasms and inflammation. Since Transverse Myelitis can affect the nerves and nervous system, you may want to hold or wear a piece of Chrysoprase, which helps nervous system cell rejuvenation. Manganocalcite can also help to heal at a cellular level.
There is an article in the Healing Crystals Archive that may share other recommendations as well.
As we go into a new year, take a moment to ask that all energies that are not in your family's highest good be released from your home. Ask that your home be filled with love and only that which will help you heal and grow. Blessings to you and your family. You are an amazingly strong and resourceful woman. Tap into that strength. I have no doubt that you can face these challenges and prevail.
with love and crystal blessings,
