"What crystals can I use to help me stop repeating negative patterns?"



Hi there J,

Thank you for your patience while I gathered some info and suggestions for you.

Often you'll find that you have a block when you feel there is something you cannot get passed: you keep repeating the same cycle, that doesn't serve you and benefit your life.

As blocks do start energetically, you can use any crystal to support you breaking through it BUT the crystal isn't a substitute for doing the work so try not to use your crystals as a bandaid rather, e.g. I'm procrastinating so I get Carnelian for motivation, but I don't do the project that I'm procrastinating around. In this instance, I've gotten the Carnelian as a bandaid.

Here are some crystals which may be helpful to you for breaking patterns and repeating what doesn't serve:

  • Sulphur allows people to get in touch with the inner self, to discover a higher purpose, while blocking any old repeating behaviors that no longer serve this purpose. Sulphur can soften a hard line attitude, allowing one to become more flexible with the natural cycles of life. This action can tune one into the right frequencies for allowing inner peace to pervade in one's life experience. Now Sulphur isn't one to easy come by so you could google pictures of sulphur and connect with its energy in that way.
  • Chrysoprase is known for bringing hope into dire situations, and is excellent for breaking negative cycles. It can help to initiate great inner growth, especially when used during meditation.
  • Chrysocolla is a very peaceful stone, soothing and calming in times of stress, and brings about gentle release. It gently draws off negative energies of all kinds, and can help to calm the emotions and bring understanding to discordant relationships.
  • Petrified Wood can support you with connecting to your ancestors and with ancestral healing.
  • Clear Topaz is known to help those dealing with karma and past life issues.
  • Labradorite will support you through change and transition. It always sounds simple to let go of something harmful. The truth is whether it is good or bad, it is always a challenge and a process to let go of the past partially because it throws you out of your comfort zone and partially because it is hard to be sure what is best to let go of and what you should hold on to. Labradorite will help you with these choices
  • You can use Phantoms to facilitate inner growth, and when in need of help in understanding and resolving past issues in your life. Meditating with Phantoms can help one uncover hidden information and repressed memories and bring them to the surface for final resolution and release.
  • Obsidian (there's a link below for more on this stone and blocks) is not to be used lightly, as Obsidian will unleash undesirable truths and negative energy very quickly to the surface; however, when used skillfully, Obsidian releases these negative patterns/past emotional traumas so that true soul healing can begin. Obsidian protects the wearer from hostility, negativity, psychic ‘vampires’ and spiritual entities that do not belong. It offers release from tension and enables one to move forward in his/her life, with a more promising outlook. All obsidian can help with this on some level so if black obsidian feels too strong for you, go with another variety that you're drawn to.
  • Because of its affinity with the Heart Chakra, Antigorite can release emotional blockages and their resulting negative energy, thus allowing you to get away from people, things and habits which no longer serve you, but also keep you from advancing in your life.

Lastly, I'd suggest something to keep you grounded (Smokey QuartzBlack TourmalineRed Jasper), something for love (Rose QuartzRhodoniteKunzite) and something for boundaries such as Sunstone or Green Aventurine. It's big work to let go of repeating cycles and it's a process to do this. It's not something that can happen overnight and it can take consistent work to create shifts in your life. Be gentle and easy with yourself through this process and when you're bringing up big things that you work through. You owe that to yourself especially when you make changes that upset others (that's why I recommended some crystals for boundaries.)

Here are some posts that may be useful for you:

There are a lot of stones and info to go through so take your time and take a look at all the stones to see which jump out at you or stick in your mind for a few days - those are the ones you're resonating with.

I want to tell you though not to forget your power and that you're allowed to set up boundaries to not only protect your energy but also your health on all levels! Remember your power and that you can take action for yourself.
