In the world of crystals, there are many that soothe mental, physical and emotional tension, thereby relieving stress and anxiety.
But first, where does anxiety come from?
Anxiety, in its essence, is blocked energy. By acknowledging the root causes of our anxiety we become empowered to change our automatic thinking patterns and instinctive reactions.
Speaking from my own personal experience, I feel one of the greatest causes of stress and anxiety is fear of the unknown.
We tend to cling on to what makes us feel secure and comfortable, even if it is not aligned with our soul mission and is not helping us grow and evolve into the brightest version of ourselves.
Sometimes we are so afraid of change and letting go that our whole body is subconsciously overcome by anxiety and stress.
To overcome this, we need to look no further than our own divine souls. Once we recognize ourselves as beings of love and light with limitless soul potential, our life force energy and natural state of balance can be restored.
Crystals are a great tool to help activate our life force energy. To work with their energy simply hold them close to you throughout the day, lay them on your chakras, sleep next to them, meditate with them, tuck them into your bra or pocket, or wear them as a piece of jewelry.
The following is my intuitive choice of healing crystals to help you overcome stress and anxiety.
Amethyst has incredibly soothing, stress-relieving properties and at the same time, it swiftly clears away any negative energy that might be lingering within your aura.
It is a high-vibrational crystal that helps to open up and activate your Crown Chakra, so that you become a clear channel of divine inspiration. It also helps to open up blockages within your energy field, and release toxic emotions, such as anger, fear, and pain of past traumas.
As you begin to work with Amethyst, feel its harmonizing vibes purifying and detoxing every cell in your body. Let its lavender hues guide you into a state of deep relaxation and surrender.
Embrace its wisdom and the deep spiritual insights it brings, and let it melt away all your fear, guilt, grief, and self-doubt. It will surround your aura with a powerful shield of protection and enhance your intuition so that you will have clarity and wisdom to make important, life-changing decisions.
Amethyst is a natural stress reliever and a highly spiritual crystal, but at the same time, it also promotes rational thinking and stability in our day-to-day lives. It teaches us the importance of balancing our instinctive emotions and reactions, so that we become more disciplined and patient, instead of constantly overreacting and allowing our emotions to take control.
Thanks to its unique ability to merge spirituality with rationality, Amethyst is the perfect crystal to encourage the healing of any mental, physical or emotional issue.

If you would like to connect with your Guardian Angels or Spirit Guides, turn to this subtle high-vibrational crystal. Apophyllite takes you to a serene and blissful state of mind, at the same time gently purifying your aura of any negative energy or toxic cords that might be blocking the free flow of your life force energy.
Apophyllite has incredibly tranquilizing vibes and working with this crystal is bound to help you overcome anxiety and stress. It helps you release fear of the unknown and fear of change, so that you can start over with a clean slate.
Apophyllite brings you spiritual insights and reminds you that fear is just an illusion created by our mind to trick us into believing that we are threatened by some outside forces.
Fear often indicates a lack of trust in our own divine essence; it is an indicator of feeling a separation deep within our being. Fear is here to show us that we are not yet fully connected to our soul and merged with the Universal Source of love and light, and that we still need to keep working on expanding our consciousness.

I sincerely hope that you will find my guidance into the world of healing crystals helpful. If you have any doubts as to which of these four crystals you should start working with, as always, it is best to listen to your own intuition and choose the one that you feel most drawn to. Don’t second guess, just follow your gut instinct!
True healing can only begin when we are in a relaxed and trustful state of mind, free from anxiety and fear. The first step is to recognize our true nature, our divine essence of unconditional love. The rest will come naturally.
