How Can Crystals Help with Anxiety?
Unbeknownst to many people, crystals, or gemstones can be used to relieve many spiritual, psychological, and physical stresses. Crystals have a primordial connection with nature and the cosmos, and many of them have been here for millions of years.
In general, gemstones have unique attributes that make them better at specific tasks than others. However, from our knowledge of gemstones, we can confidently say that 90% of them, to some degree, have warding or protective effects that can be used to remove toxic or negative energies from either the environment or the person.
Quartz, for one, because of its frequency level, is most preferable for physical tools for transmuting energy.
Gemstones also have a special relationship with our chakras. If you don’t know what chakras are, they are like whirlpools of energy that spin at high speeds. They are part of the subtle body, which is a body within a body in Hindu tradition.
Chakras represent different domains of life that are animated by different kinds of energy. Chakras are interconnected, and one blocked chakra can harm another chakra altogether.
So you must know what your chakras are for and how they impact your mind, heart, and body. From a metaphysical healing point of view, you can also meditate on individual chakras to glean universal wisdom.
Which Chakra Deals with Anxiety?
Three chakras are linked with anxiety: the throat chakra, the heart chakra, and the solar plexus chakra. Among these three, the most important chakra of all is the solar plexus chakra.
The solar plexus chakra can be found just beneath the sternum or the ribs, mainly associated with the color yellow. This chakra is responsible for managing or regulating various important emotions: a person’s sense of personal power, the instinct or gut feel, and a person’s sense of fear.
When the solar plexus chakra is open, a person feels powerful and confident, and his instincts will be sharp and on point. When this chakra is underpowered or blocked, a person will feel continually or chronically anxious. He may also end up feeling physical symptoms like digestive problems and a dread sense that he has lost control of his life..
To recover from a blocked solar plexus chakra, a person can either meditate on the color yellow or use additional tools, like hematite, which produces subtle vibrational energies that help people overcome emotional imbalances, including depression and anxiety.
Keep in mind that having emotional imbalances is not a good thing. Too many negative emotions can ruin a person’s life. He becomes less functional and more prone to emotional breakdowns, and anxieties can also prevent a person from pursuing his best life ever.
So if you are always anxious for no good reason and want to try something else to relieve it, we recommend using the chakra stone method.
Chakra stone healing is simple and straightforward. You meditate while holding the stone that you wish to associate with a chakra or a general organ system. Healing crystals have so much to offer when it comes to healing – people have to get their heads around using gemstones for healing purposes.
The hematite is associated with the base chakra, which is good because if you use it to help unblock the solar plexus chakra, you get the added benefit of rootedness, or being linked to the earth. Rootedness is essential for healing because if you aren’t rooted, your Self wouldn’t have a way to relinquish negative or toxic energies that have accumulated over the years.
Unbeknownst to many, this isn’t an automatic process. If you aren’t properly grounded, years of toxicity can accumulate and render you ill, spiritually, mentally, physically, and so on.
Hematite helps reduce anxiety and depression, as well as a host of other mental disorders. It is a powerful support stone for beginners, and it will also help reestablish a slew of other states that can help improve your cognitive function. For example, hematite can help increase a person’s ability to focus. If you wish to improve your concentration, you can also use hematite to clear the mental fog.
Additionally, hematite improves a person’s convictions and ability to become purposive and direct with his actions and decisions.
Hematite can be utilized to increase the pool of courage and inner fortitude necessary for pursuing desires and passions in life. If you feel that you have been held back by your history and want to improve your life by being more headstrong and confident in the things you want to do, look no further than hematite.
Hematite is known as the stone of the mind, so it honestly does deal with helping ease mental congestion and fog. It increases personal acuity and a person’s ability to create powerful ideas that he can follow through with. Additionally, hematite can also help people overcome problems with addiction and overindulgences. So whether you are dealing with drug addiction or food addiction, the base of the problem will always be the same, and that base will be the focus of hematite’s subtle vibrational energies.
Hematite Healing Properties
Let it be said that hematite also has unique healing properties that come with its ability to deal with anxiety and depression. Hematite is recommended for people who wish to establish physical equilibrium and healing. If you are always tired and fatigued and feel that your body needs an energetic lift, go for hematite.
Hematite is also indicated for balancing the various energy meridians of the body. The meridians regulate the flow of chi or life force throughout the body. By bringing them back to a more balanced state, your life force will normalize, and diseases and pains will likely go away. We highly recommend meridian balancing for people who suffer from chronic problems and pains that they find challenging to remedy with conventional medication.
