There’s a lot of uncertainty in the world today due to COVID-19, which brings a lot of fear, anxiety and stress. It’s in these moments that we need hope and reassurance to help us get through these troubling times. What usually brings me peace is being surrounded by Mother Nature, especially in the form of jewels and gems. I want to share with you a list of gemstones that are best to be surrounded by when you’re stressed, and will help bring you a sense of calm and control within this new reality.
A must-have in every crystal collection, Amethyst encourages you to trust your intuition and soothes away your day-to-day stresses. If you’ve set up a new workplace in your home — it’s great to add to your space!
Blue Lace Agate
Visually appealing with its light blue hue, Blue Lace Agate is said to bring a calming, soothing effect on the mind. It encourages you to speak your truth, embrace your self-confidence and inner stability.
Coming from the Latin word for heavenly, this crystal inspires deep relaxation, peace and joy. Helps relieve stress, anxiety and clear your overburdened mind when times are tough — it’s a great piece to add to your space for creative expression, increase your rational thinking and even encourage a great night’s sleep.
Known as the genius stone, Fluorite carries a calm, stable frequency that brings order to the chaos. Making it one of the most collectible and highly sought-after crystals, it’s said to neutralize negativity and inspire peace and harmony.
Known as the logic stone, Sodalite emits an easy, tranquil energy that clears the mind and elicits deep thought — expanding your ability to arrive to logical conclusions, rationally. It’s said that sculptors, painters and artists were known to carry this stone around for inspiration! Remember that tidbit when you want to spark your creativity!
Black Tourmaline is the ultimate stone of protection. Helping you build boundaries between yourself and others, it’s a great stone to put outside of your home to ward off any negative energy that people might bring with them and stop it in its tracks. It will help you feel more centered and calmer within your space.
A crystal’s healing ability works differently for everyone. It is not one-size-fits-all and will take some experimentation and exploration on your part to find which crystals and gems work best for you. Every gemstone is unique and calls out to us in distinct ways, which is part of the fun when building your collection!
