Which Crystals Are Good For Insomnia?
I just had a question in the open forum to do with insomnia… what crystals to use for insomnia.
It’s always good to get to the cause of something, but she wanted to know about working with grids to help her sleep. Working with grids can assist by amplifying energy of the intention set out by the creator of the grid.
I just did a healing on someone who hasn’t slept more than 3 hours a night in years. After the session he went home and slept 15 hours straight – a miracle by his standards! his wife kept checking to make sure he was breathing as she had never seen him asleep for that long.
My first suggestion to relieve the problem would be to ground – take the energy out of your head and put it in the ground. The more you do this the more energy you will have to function through the day and help you sleep at night. All stress is due to excess thought which results in being too heady or not grounded.
Crystals to help with insomnia could be chosen intuitively and will depend largely on why the person can’t sleep, for example – outside influences disturbing them such as noise, mosquitoes, neighbours (who knows – stuff beyond your control), too much thinking and trying to unravel stuff, medication, caffeine, too much TV… the possibilities are endless.
<h2>Crystals For Insomnia I start with cover all bases in a general way</H2>
Howlite, Black Tourmaline, Shungite, Amethyst and Charoite they help the thinking mind expand, ground excess energies and shield the crown.
Additional crystals for insomnia would be;
General sleep aids are credited to Amethyst, Nephrite Jade, Herkimer Diamonds, Aquamarine, Blue Lace Agate, Blue Chalcedony, Blue Topaz or Celestite are possible sleep aids.
Sapphire, Sodalite and Fluorite work on the mind and settling it into its right state.
Once the reason is established, so for example my son sleeps with Charoite and Amethyst which is good for fearful dreams, Mangano Calcite also helps with feeling of safety as does Kunzite. Smoky Quartz, Lithium Quartz and Lepidolite take the emotional stuff down a notch if you are grappling with feelings.
For grounding energy and getting it out of your head try Black Tourmaline, Smoky Quartz, Black Quartz or even Pyrite or Hematite.
Figure out if its emotional, mental or the past that is driving you and not letting you rest and choose stones that address those place first.
Obviously getting to the cause makes stone choice vary… but trusting your gut is the best way to go – do a random selection or sit and ask a question and wait for an image or word to flash into your mind – and no doubt it will be perfect!
