Best Crystals & Gemstones for Stress & Anxiety | Crystal Karma by Trina
Anxiety can cause intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Fast heart rate, rapid breathing, sweating and feeling tired may occur.
Anxiety can be normal in stressful situations such as public speaking or taking a test. Anxiety is only an indicator of underlying disease when feelings become excessive, all-consuming and interfere with daily living.

Crystal healing can help ease some anxiety symptoms such as stomach tension, tense muscles and loss of self-confidence.  Try these calming crystals when you’re suffering from anxiety, to stay focused and calm your mind and stay in control.

So what crystals are good for stress and anxiety?  Here's a few of my favourites..

Lepidolite is one of the best mood stabiliser in the world of crystals.

Lepidolite crystal contains a high amount of lithium, which is also used in anti-anxiety medication. It doesn't require a prescription and side effects include a sense of calm and tranquillity during times of stress and chaos.

Setting your Intentions with Crystals - How to Charge Crystals with Intention | Crystal Karma by Trina

Why it is Important to Practice Intention Setting

Setting your intention is a powerful ritual you can use on a daily basis to improve various areas of your life.  An intention is basically what you want in your life.

Setting your intention is also about getting in touch with your inner spiritual needs – choosing what areas of your life you really want to focus on and improve.  This could be better relationships, becoming more in tune with your spiritual senses, money, employment, health, confidence etc.

When you set your intentions, you are investing in yourself and allowing yourself the time to very clearly think about what is important and what changes you want to happen.  Try to be as specific as you can. 

Setting your intention with crystals - Once you have cleansed and charged your crystals (by one of the methods pictured below and as in our previous blog - link above), the next step is to set your intention (programming your crystal) which means telling your crystal what you want it to do for you and giving it a sense of direction for its purpose.

Crystal Cleansing & Charging

Crystal Cleansing & Charging

Why should I cleanse my crystals? 

Crystals absorb energy from everyone and everything around them.  Think about all the people who have touched your crystal before it arrives to you.  When it’s extracted from the mines, then cleaned and packaged for shipping, airline handling, customs etc, then they may have been picked over by many people in the warehouse waiting to be purchased by sellers.

Crystals should be cleansed to release any negative energy they have picked up. All crystals are handpicked by me and they are cleansed once I bring them home and before they are sent out to their new homes.  Feel free to cleanse them once they arrive to you to start your fresh journey with your new crystals.
