If you find you have trouble getting to sleep, then we may have the solution for you: crystals. Perhaps you've never thought of using them as a solution before, but you'd be surprised at how they can help. So, if you find yourself tossing and turning through the night, then keep reading for a natural sleep solution. Amethyst, Sodalite, Jade, Clear Quartz and Selenite are the most powerful crystals to help you sleep. So let's consider how each of them can benefit you.
Amethyst Amethyst is a crystal stone that brings both calming and soothing energies to aid your sleeping. It works by absorbing and repelling all negative energies that could be affecting your sleep. It helps you to relax by repelling those negative sources and removing the stress and anxiety from your body. It can also help to alleviate frustration and nervous energies and help aid your sleeping. By placing Amethyst underneath your pillow before you sleep you can also increase your dreams, which helps you remember your dreams and chases away any nightmares that could be keeping you up.
Sodalite Sodalite brings order and calmness to the mind. Sodalite can also help to prevent insomnia.
Clear Quartz Clear Quartz can help ensure that you will have pleasant dreams whilst sleeping. This is because it's an activating and energising gemstone that works by magnifying the properties of any other crystals which touch it. This means it can magnify the healing energies of Selenite and Amethyst in the bag of crystals. This crystal can also assist in helping you focus on your dreams. You should hold your quartz crystal in your hand before you sleep and consider any worries or problems you may have. Then, when you fall asleep, the crystals under the pillow can help ease your mind and work through those issues whilst you are sleeping.
Smokey Quartz - Dispels nightmares and manifests your dreams. Smokey Quartz disperses fear, lifts depression and negativity. It brings emotional calmness, relieving stress and anxiety.
Selenite Last but not least, Selenite is thought to be one of the best crystals to help with insomnia. This crystal works by surrounding your body with protective energy whilst you are asleep, and rejuvenating and cleansing your aura, so when you awake, you feel refreshed and well-rested. The Selenite in the bag of crystals will work to constantly reactivate and cleanse the crystals that are touching it, which will, in turn, keep them free of negative energy.
A “dream stone”, Jade brings insightful dreams. It aids emotional release, especially of irritability.
Before you reach for over-the-counter medications to help you sleep, why not try crystals first. It's always more beneficial to your body to find natural ways to help you sleep rather than medication. This is because it will allow you to reprogram your body and mind and create better sleeping patterns for the long-term.
It's important to ensure that before you sleep, you get rid of any built-up frustrations you have due to difficulty sleeping. Silently sit and hold your crystals in your hands for a few minutes and take a deep breaths, visualise yourself and your crystals surrounded by white light and feel the healing energies of the crystals. Set your intentions with your crystals, let them know exactly what it is you need them to help you with. You might even like to write it down.
