"Hi there, I was wondering what crystals can help with the production of the hormone serotonin because I was having to take pills for severe depression and anxiety and the psychiatrist prescribed me those pills so my body can produce serotonin because of the lack of this hormone I was having serious depression with no enthusiasm in life and no willpower and with no joy in daily activities. So I was wondering what crystals can help me with the production of serotonin and make me feel uplifted and joyous again cause it’s a very scary sensation to feel hopeless and sad and with no will to continue living. I need to feel alive again and have joy in my life otherwise it’s like not being alive when immersed in deep sadness. And I would not like to continue depending on artificial medication every month in order to feel better. Best regards"
Hi there T,
I am so sorry to hear that you are having a tough time right now. It sucks and thank you for sharing your vulnerability with me!
With crystals, unfortunately there are no crystals that can help you produce serotonin. Crystals work on an energetic level and they can support the body energetically, as well as complement all forms of therapy, but they can't replace or substitute anything. We still have to do the work. You are receiving medical support so let's look at crystals that can support you right now and I'll offer you a little bit about how to use them (how I've used them for happiness myself).
Crystals for happiness include:
All of these crystals support happiness, but I want to say that ANY crystal can bring happiness so if none of these jump out at you and another comes into your head when you think of happiness, go with that.
You can carry your happy stone with you, wear it as jewelry or keep it near. I've always found that when I need a little more happiness or when I'm not okay, I'll grab my happy stone and meditate with it for 10 minutes or so. I focus on my solar plexus and feel the warmth there, then focus on radiating that outward and around me. It also helps to think of a happy memory when you do this for the times when the happiness may not come easily (it's okay either way). Afterwards, if I feel inspired, I'll go draw. This is when I'm most happy, when I'm creating and often the crystal gives me the jumpstart that I need to do something that brings me happiness. It took me too many years to figure that out so if there is something that brings you joy, whatever it is, even if it's the most stupidest thing on this planet, make the time to do it because that will help bring a little more happiness to your heart, soul and mind.
I really want to add a nice grounding stone to the mix for you too, something like Black Tourmaline, Smokey Quartz or Hematite. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy and need that reminder that we are a spiritual being having a physical experience so being grounded is really beneficial. Walks out in nature is always best but not always possible, especially when you don't have the energy. Then you can grab your chosen grounding stone and meditate with it or hold it for a little bit. Imagine roots coming out of your feet and tethering you to the center of the earth, feel that pull and support (if you lie on your back, I find that's when I feel it the most) of the Earth. Soak up that feeling for as long as you need.
Lastly, I want to suggest some Rose Quartz or Morganite for you.
You're going through a lot. Maybe you have a lot of bad days where just getting out of bed is a lot, but give yourself love, grace, space and time to go through all these things and emotions, because you deserve it every day! Hug yourself and tell yourself that you love yourself. When you don't feel like it then you can say something like "I choose to love myself today".
I wish I could give you a hug so this is me sending it through all of these crystals and any crystal that you find resonates with you!
