"Hi, I really like gems and been wearing them more often to help change my outlook and outcomes. My niece has grown a liken to them too. She loves to see my jewelry stones. So she wants her own. And I thought it would be a great chance to address one trait about her that bothers us all.
She is very needy and can't be on her own. She cant play by herself. If her parents have visitors, she makes herself present. She doesn't stop announcing what she knows or can do. If any of her siblings are getting more attention at a moment, she comes running with a fake problem. if you are helping a sibling spell a word or tie their shoe, she announces that she already knew that at their age.
Her mom worries about her growing up needy. What gems can help with this? I want her to be self-assured and relaxed even when it is not about her."
Thank you for reaching out to us and allowing me to message you via your email as opposed to Facebook.
So when I read your message, the first stone that popped into my mind was Citrine which is a great stone for confidence and having the confidence in yourself. As you know, I wanted to research this a lot more and the more I think of it, perhaps Citrine isn't a great choice, because she does seem quite confident in herself and what she can already do and know.
If you look at imbalances within the Chakras, an overactive heart chakra can portray clingy and/or critical behaviors, whereas an overactive solar plexus can portray being overly judgmental and perfectionism. This is why I don't think more Citrine would be helpful, something more balancing for the solar plexus, like Amethyst or Lepidolite may be better suited for her. Amethyst encourages confidence in yourself. Lepidolite is balancing and encourages awareness as well as inner peace. Rose Quartz may be nice to soothe and balance the heart, bringing a softness.
Dumortierite encourages flexibility and this may be helpful for your niece to be more flexible with any changes your sister/her mom would like to implement.
For over-attachment, Magnetite reduces over attachment and neediness. This however is such a strong stone that I'm unsure it would be well suited for a child. That just doesn't align with me. Hematite may be a nice to replace that and children may enjoy the shininess of a silver, tumbled piece. Iolite is a nice one to reduce dependence so this may also be better suited for her.
You could show your niece pictures of all these stones or any that particularly stand out to you and your sister, and see how your niece feels about them, then go with getting those. Alternatively, you could get one of each and then let your niece decide. She can even go about learning about the stones. We have crystal cards that may be a nice learning aide.
Tourmaline is a great one to help you face challenges with strength, courage and some optimism. This may be great for your sister, along with Mookaite which helps you cope with demands of children. I couldn't help but offer some for your sister as well, because I'm sure she also needs a good crystal companion to encourage her at times!
I know this is a lot, thank you for giving me the time to research all of this and offer you some suggestions. I hope they are helpful :)
