Like most stones in the 'blue' family, the energy of Sodalite is very cooling and calming. Place a piece of Sodalite over the Third Eye or Crown Chakra (in between your eyebrows or in the center of your forehead) and be instantly calmed by its relaxing energies.Not only is this gorgeous stone able to calm the most anxious mind, it is also excellent for bringing clarity and perspective to an otherwise overwhelming situation!
2. Rose Quartz
If a crystal could bake your favourite brownies and give you the best Grandma cuddles, it would be Rose Quartz! This pale pink beauty resonates with the Heart and Higher Heart Chakras and is a superstar when it comes to matters of the heart. Place it at the center of your chest to help sooth panic-induced heart palpitations, or simply hold it closely to benefit from all the juicy love and support it radiates. Best of all, Rose Quartz reminds us to be gentle and forgiving towards ourselves, at times when we need it most. Soak in a Rose Quartz infused bath for the ultimate relaxation and support experience.
Hematite is not usually a featured contender when it comes to selecting crystals for supporting anxiety- but you would be surprised how effective it is! Because of it's natural gravitational and magnetic energies, it is arguably the most powerful grounding stone in the mineral kingdom. Placed between the feet or held in the lap while seated, it helps us to remain anchored when our thoughts or feelings threaten to carry us away. It is also used to bring focus and strength to the mind (and anyone who has overcome anxiety, will tell you that strength of mind is essential!)
Is there anything this wonder crystal can't do?! Being a deeply spiritual stone for the Third Eye or Crown Chakra, Amethyst helps us to connect to our Higher-Selves for self-awareness and personal evolution. It is very calming and works on the mind to bring a sense of peace, serenity and almost a meditative state of mental relaxation. Hold it at your Third Eye and breath deeply and rhythmically the next time you begin to feel anxious. You'll be amazed at how quickly you begin to feel calmer.
As a natural balancer and cleanser, Amazonite is most effective when used at the Solar Plexus, Heart, Higher Heart or Throat Chakras. It works to filter and protect us from stress, emotional imbalance, environmental pollutants, trauma and feelings of overwhelm and confusion. Hold it close to your body or visualise yourself being surrounded by it's light/colour to wash away any irrational thoughts or panicky feelings.
