What crystals help with anxiety and depression?

Postby LookingForAnswers » Wed Oct 03, 2018 7:10 pm

I suffer from anxiety and depression, and medicine still hasn't helped, so I'm going to try a natural approach. I would like some recommendations for what crystals I could purchase that would help me with anxiety and depression. All suggestions are welcomed and appreciated!

Wonder of wonders ... https://anxiety-gone.com/natural-stones ... h-anxiety/

The site mentions 17 stones & I can vouch for shungite. it's a high carbon shale, black stone of no great appearance but has amazing healing properties (carbon-60) which I'd done a post on in the crystals section some while back. I wear a shungite pendant & have placed the stones in all my drinking water & in my cat's water bowl. It's a natural water purifier & our city water is fluoridated which can contribute to depression by calcifying the pineal gland (over years of exposure).

Clear quartz is all-purpose & amplifies any other stone it's paired with.

Rose quartz can be a goodie for the depression. :)

Although my response is dated to this post, I would also suggest Black Agate. Especially if grieving or needing strength to move on.

Chinese medicine suggests that in the belly area there is a complex site of nerves, maybe even more complex than the one in brain. While brain area would be the mental centre, belly area is thought to be the emotional one.

Therefore to counter anxiety and other (irrational) fears focus on stones for belly area, 3rd chakra, spleen, liver, stomach...
To counter desperation, feelings of senselessness in/of life, absence of meaning, apathy - focus on the crown, 7th chakra and related stones.

The book of biology suggests that we store most of our blood in spleen and liver. Carlos Castaneda mentioned in his book (don't remember which) that we store our energy reserves in spleen, liver and kidneys. So protect these and yes, use black stones afore mentioned and the similar for protection.

When buying big black stones, there's usually a lot of astral evil absorbed in them, so take care to exorcise it thoroughly at first.
Alternative to black for protection is dark grey, dark brown ... maybe indigo, and sometimes white. These don't absorb. Trouble with black is that they absorb, so a lot of cleansing has to be done too.

Totally can see the dark, black or brown stones and grounding and if one is grounding one should also be relieved of the feeling of anxiety, and such a good point SL, anxiety is most felt in the stomach area. I remember my daughter used to get quite nervous before a performance at school, her method was jumping up and down. One time I asked her what she was doing and she said it was the only way to make the butterflies go away.

It depends what the anxiety is over!

Rose quartz i find is terrific for family-related.

But other ones do all different things such as vanity, confusion, claustrophobic, doubt, insanity even. U can probably tell by picking one up and holding it.

Fluorite, is fantastic for nervousness - I'd say this one is the silver bullet.

Made me reflect on why negativity's dispersed so fast when you put salt with black pepper to all corners of the room.

I'd say salt absorbs and pepper causes intense pain so minor entities flee prematurely at mere sight of it.

I'd like to have a full arsenal of silver bullets.

Black tea in the bath - silver bullet for hate/crimes/unoriginal anything.

Anything black helps. My favourite has always been a palm-size black tourmaline which I normally hold whenever I feel an impending anxiety or depressive attack. My first palm-sized tourmaline exploded before I underwent catatonic depression last year.

For my everyday wear, I wear gold obsidian as a necklace.

Another thing that helped me was putting moonstones and amethyst under my pillow when I sleep while holding a black tourmaline and a black agate in both my hands.
