Here is a question from one of our customers:
Q: My name is Steven and I wanted to ask you a question on stones. I have been interested in stones for what they look like and there different properties. So my question to is what stones would be best for Anger. I have a lot of trouble controlling my outburst and snapping for any reason that gets me upset, I have tried different methods and am willing to try anything at this point. I would like something that can help promote positive energy and releases anger in a way that is not harmful to me and the people i love. Maybe something that can help with the anger that builds up inside. A lot of people have said that certain stones help guild their inner soul and energy with different issues, so I am think that maybe certain stone properties will help guild the anger in me.
Many times, I think it is a good idea to look at anger as a symptom, not necessarily the cause. It is wonderful that you understand that anger can be destructive to the body, mind and soul and I applaud you for looking to some crystals that may help to ease the energy of anger. It is important to make mental notes, so to speak, on what was said that made you angry, what you or someone else was doing at the time, etc. It is with this complete awareness, that I think you will begin to understand what sets you off and why.
Of course, I would be remiss if I did not offer the suggestion of finding a medical professional that can help you to work through these anger issues in a safe and controlled environment. It is all a part of healing :)
With that said, let's look at some of the other emotions that may bring up intense anger. Fear, stress, tension, judgment, criticism, etc. These can be the catalyst to an angry outburst. Using this information, I offer the following suggestions to you.
Carnelian is an excellent piece to carry or wear. Carnelian can calm anger. It will help to ground you to the Earth so that you can think rationally and not react with intense emotions. Think of Carnelian as a preventative.
Amethyst is a wonderful crystal to have handy. Amethyst helps to release stress, anxiety and anger.
Sugilite helps to eliminate hostility, anger, abrasiveness, jealousy and prejudice. It allows the flow of gentle, loving information from the spiritual world to the mental plane, bringing peace and relaxation to the user.
"Diopside is a reminder that health issues arise when we repress emotion. When we face these issues, as challenging and sometimes difficult as they may be, we need to remember this is in our best interest that we may heal and let go. Diopside begs the question, “Why are you holding on? What does it serve to hold on to anger and fear?” Allow the energies of Diopside to assist by its non-judgmental support, healing and love."
Blue Kyanite also can dispel anger and frustration, removing energy blockages and releasing repressed emotion.
Take a look at the links provided. Read the information, look at the pictures. Choose what you feel you are drawn to.
I also found a few articles in the Healing Crystal archives that might offer further suggestions.
Again, I am very proud of you for acknowledging your anger and looking for ways in which to alleviate the issue. I wish you all of the best in a successful resolution.
with love and crystal blessings,
