Crystals for Anxiety: Calming Stones for Soothing Stress

Has your life reached a boiling point? If the constant, chronic cycle of stress has threatened to compromise your health and spirit, you should consider healing on a spiritual level. Unlike anti-anxiety medication, which only treats the symptoms, using calming stones for anxiety helps to soothe and heal your mind, body and spirit, truly getting to the root of the problem. 

One thing is certain: the pace of life isn’t slowing down! Modern living can quickly crumble the calm, composed spiritual harmony that resides in all of us. And when things get too overwhelming, our stress and anxiety levels are heightened. Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States, affecting nearly 40 million adults in the US alone! Although they can be treated with over the counter medication, many people do not want to be constantly taking medication and are searching for natural remedies for anxiety. This is where adopting a practice with the best healing crystals for anxiety can be very beneficial.

Think of using stones good for anxiety as deep exhale breathing for your soul. Crystals and stones for anxiety can help unlock the door to inner peace. Find a much-needed refuge from modern life by taking the time each day to meditate and escape from the stresses of everyday life. By combining the soothing and relaxing frequencies of crystals with meditation and yoga, you create the perfect conditions for healing on all levels. Meditating with crystals helps you connect with their high vibrational frequencies, which can open up your chakras to a deeper level of healing. Before beginning any therapeutic session with healing crystals, practitioners often use a grounding technique, which helps prime the mind and body for openness and transformation.

During meditation, it can be a challenge to keep your mind from wandering, which is why a grounding session is essential. Start by saging ÿyour body, healing crystals, and space to clear away any negativity from your energetic field. Then, hold grounding stones like Hematite or Red Garnet in each hand while imagining your scattered energy coming together in a peaceful wave of relaxation and calm. Once you feel anchored and grounded, you are ready for your healing energy session!

There are many different calming crystals for anxiety and stress relief, so experiment with different ones and find the personal formula that’s right for you. Once you find your formula, use your calming crystals in meditation for anxiety.


Calming Crystals for Anxiety & Stress Relief

Blue Lace Agate

Blue Lace Agate is one of the best crystals for anxiety and stress relief, in our opinion. Its beautiful periwinkle color emits calming and soothing vibrations that bring peace of mind to help you relax. Holding and meditating with these crystals daily can help to calm your nerves and reduce your anxiety. If you are someone who suffers from anxiety every day, try wearing a bracelet made of blue lace agate or carrying one of these healing stones in your pocket, so that if you feel yourself becoming too overwhelmed, it can help bring a little comfort throughout the day. Blue lace agate is also a wonderful stone to use to help calm overly hyper or anxious pets.

Lepidolite

One of the most effective crystals for calming anxiety is Lepidolite. It naturally contains lithium within it, which is often used in anti-anxiety medication. Connecting with this gentle stone brings balance during times of stress and chaos. It is especially wonderful to use during meditation. Place it over your third eye or hold a piece in each of your hands to bring comfort and harmony. Tap into the lithium aspect of Lepidolite and enjoy what is widely considered the best gemstone for anxiety.

Celestite

If you’re looking for anti anxiety stones that specifically are helpful for restful sleep, Celestite is one of the top crystals for anxiety and sleep. Known as “The Lullaby Stone” or “cosmic lullaby,” it’s no wonder that this is among the top healing crystals for anxiety so your mind can reach a soft, gentle and comfortable place, allowing you to peacefully reach restful and restorative sleep every night. 

By simply gazing upon them, the heavenly color of these Celestite stones inspires deep peace and happiness. Due to the celestite properties, it is the ideal crystal to place in your bedroom to bring tranquility and harmonious energies to encourage rest. Holding a celestite crystal in your hands in times of stress or grief helps to lift heavy moods, relieve sadness and diminish stress. When placed directly on your body, Celestite brings muscle and tension release to the area in which it is placed upon.

The name Celestite comes from the Latin word for heavenly, and its stress relieving vibes will certainly feel like nirvana to a chaotic mind. Though it's a high-vibrational crystal, the intensity of Celestite's uplifting nature is gentle enough to still be soothing. If you are experiencing stress from unfamiliar situations or difficult relationships, working with the Celestite meaning can bring clarity and aid in your ability to reconcile. By instilling you with a calm approach, you will be better equipped to handle whatever life brings you.

 

Shungite

Shungite is believed to help relieve anxiety and also insomnia. It is a very old, ancient healing stone, said to be around 2 billion years old. It helps to detoxify and purify your body and energy field, helping to get rid of negative energies and anything health hazardous to the body, like anxiety. Many people in Russia use it in their drinking water because of its documented health benefits. 

To tap into Shungite’s almost primeval, enduring peace-inducing vibrations, carry a Shungite stone in your purse, pocket, car or backpack or anything you carry with you everywhere you go. Take your smooth Shungite tumbled stone out and hold it in your hand while performing simple breathing exercises, repeating a calming mantra either aloud or in your head, or simply playing with it in the palm of your hand. Crystals that help with anxiety are like the original fidget spinner! Your Shungite stone will become the best worry stone for anxiety that can travel with you everywhere you go. 

Black Tourmaline

When you find yourself overwhelmed with worry and fear, reach for your Black Tourmaline as your “security blanket.” Hold a chunk in each of your hands and imagine your fears, worries and anxiety being sucked into the black crystals. Having the weight of the crystals in your hands makes this visualization easier, relieving your anxiety at a much quicker rate. Black stones for anxiety like Shungite above, Black Tourmaline and even Obsidian are all excellent, powerful choices when it comes to adding anti anxiety crystals to your daily mood and mental health practices. 

Stones for anxiety and stress like Black Tourmaline are wonderful in crystal jewelry and they also make great additions to the home, because a home, office or any other space with lots of people who spend a lot of time there certainly carry an energy. This energy can affect the people in it, so place plenty of crystals to calm anxiety in common rooms, living rooms and entrances to maintain emotional equilibrium. Place a Black Tourmaline Log by the entrance and in gathering spaces to protect the energy of the room.

Fluorite

Called “the Rainbow Keeper,” Fluorite brings vibrations of peace, bliss, and calm into your life, making it the ultimate chill pill of the mineral kingdom. The formation of Fluorite is what contributes to its powerful properties of relaxation. Made up of common minerals with strong purifying effects like Quartz and Calcite, this multi-colored stone is one of the best for healing and rejuvenating the mind and body. When you meditate with Fluorite, imagine your energy body being filled with an incredible white light that puts you at ease with yourself and the world. And there’s no denying that gazing into the rainbow-y hues of Fluorite not only dispel anxious, panicky thoughts and feelings but also spark joy, making it one of the best crystals for anxiety and depression!

While we are certainly not suggesting Fluorite can “cure” cases of clinical depression, Fluorite’s extremely high vibrations of joy, serenity and make it a wonderful tool for pulling you out of a temporary emotional funk and reminding you of all the magic, joy and overall upbeatness that’s in your life. Simply try looking at your Fluorite Mushroom and not smile, we dare you! It’s almost impossible. Stones for anxiety and depression are not cures but are definitely powerful crystal allies that will help you raise your vibrations, find gratitude for what you do have and begin to find hope for what the future may bring.  

Angelite

Angelite, the stone of guardian angels, reminds you that you are never alone. When you connect on a deep level with Angelite, it allows you to bridge the gap between the physical world and the celestial realm, where you can access the support system of your angels watching over you. When you are plugged into the support and guidance available to you, all of your feelings of worry, anxiety or fear will fall away. The comforting properties are what make Angelite such an excellent anxiety reliever. Ease away feelings of stress with the reassuring energy of your Angelite crystal. 

To call in your angels no matter where you are, carry a smooth polished Angelite tumbled stone with you everywhere you go. Think of an Angelite stone as your crystal guardian angel. It emits the gentle, reassuring vibes that you need to calm and guide your spirit through difficult moments. Angelite healing properties help to heighten your awareness and give protection to your entire body. An angelite stone promotes compassion, peace and heightened humanity. Angelite is a powerful tool to help transform tension, anger and stress into understanding and forgiveness.

Amethyst

Amethyst is a gentle stone that helps to open and activate the third eye chakra, the energy center associated with your mind. By infusing your head space with peaceful and relaxing energy, this stone works to clear away any chaotic, worried, or anxiety-ridden thoughts. With a clear mind, you can move through any stressful situations with a sense of peace and calm. With its deep purple color and attractive geode formation, Amethyst crystal has an instantly calming effect on everything around it, whether it is featured in crystal jewelry or as a large cluster placed in a room. Working with Amethyst for anxiety is perhaps the easiest way to both start and strengthen your own wellness work.

There are many different calming crystals for anxiety, and everyone will resonate with different ones. Trust your intuition when choosing the best healing stones for you to use. If you find yourself being drawn to a particular one, trust your gut and go with that one. If you are able to touch and feel the calming crystals in person, hold each one in your hand and see which one feels good with your energy.

When you want crystals to calm anxiety, try to have some on you at all times so that you’re always prepared and feeling safe.
