Here is a question from one of our customers:
i'm looking for a stone that can help a friend. she has just gone thru a very harsh experience and had become depressed. She has lived a wild and unstable life and has been hurt by so-called friends. She is kind at heart but her actions show another side. She wants to change but doesn't know how. She is 30 yrs old and her birthday is Jan 9.
Also what would recommend for someone who has strong psyhic abilities and wants to work and enhance them more. And which book would be a great rescoruce to understand and work with crystals.
I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. With that said, for your condition, I would like to start by suggesting some crystals that can help to ease pain, uplift the spirit, and remove/release anger and fear.
I looked at your other post so I will answer both questions here. i can recommend several stones for your friend.
Fire agate- It is thought to help reduce cravings and may be of benefit in the treatment of addictions and destructive desires. It aids in introspection, bringing slowly and safely, inner problems and blocks to the surface for examinations and resolution.
Blue Chalcedony- All Chalcedonies are thought to absorb negativity and promote harmonious emotions. It helps to relieve one of negative emotions, bringing a greater sense of overall happiness into one's life.
Green Tourmaline-enables you to recognize and avoid negative situations
Sodalite-Sodalite encourages being true to self, Sodalite can aid in issues of self worth, self acceptance, and self esteem
Amber- Neutralizes negative states of mind and balances emotional unequalibrium.
In conjunction with these crystals I would recommend a course of counciling by a professional.
Now for the second question, For a person new to crystals and seeking to learn more I would recommend Judy Hall's The Illustrated Guide to Crystals. I know that Amazon.com has both new and used copies for around 15.00 to 8.00 dollars depending on if you want new or used. It has a lot of info in a small book and you can find several sections on crystals for gifted people. It has some of the most common crystals and stones with pictures to help you identify them. I hope that answered all your questions. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask. thats what Im here for.
