I want to be buried in a bed of healing gemstones. I love love love all my stones and I literally could hang out at a gem and crystal show all day long. Now down here in Guatemala they don’t have shows like that but what they do have is a street lined with gem jewelry and pieces and art and oh…em….gee!!
But I don’t love them just because they are beautiful and make amazing pieces of jewelry. I love them because of their healing properties. Their very powerful healing properties. In case you didn’t know, and if you already happen to have some gemstones but just though they were for looks, crystals have mind blowing healing benefits.
Say what?? Gemstones heal?
You heard me. Gemstones have emotional and physical healing properties. In this post, I’m only going to touch upon emotional healing but you can check out this great book for a more in depth description of all the healing properties of the stones.
The Crystal Bible I had this book when I lived in Canada and I sure do miss it.
Here are 10 gemstones that are amazing for their healing
In no particular order of favourites, (er wait maybe it is?)
The love stone, fantastic for loving yourself again, wanting to feel more love and helping you heal a broken heart. I have a gorgeous Rose Quartz crystal pendant I wear when I really feel I need to have more love for myself.
Feeling like your self confidence or self esteem just got flushed down the toilet? This stone will help you feel more courageous, brave and more confident in yourself, your work and your ideas. I often wear my Tiger Eye gemstone ring if I have to go do something out of my comfort zone.
If you’ve been feeling stressed out lately grab an Amethyst stone and find a quiet place to chill out in. This is a great calming and meditating stone. Also if you are feeling anxious about something this stone is great to help soothe your nerves.
Such a pretty stone. This one helps you with your self awareness/expression and also to find your truth and speak it. It also is great for raising your self confidence. If you are feeling like you don’t belong or don’t fit in anywhere or maybe you don’t quite understand who you are, this will help you gain some clarity.
Another good stone for stress but it’s also really great for helping you with inner strength and peace. It also helps to control emotions if you have been frazzled. This is a great stone to have around for any sort of new venture.
Though Clear Quartz is the go to stone for amplifying the healing properties of other stones, it really is fantastic for clearing and preventing negative energies. A great stone to have around if you just had a fight with a partner, co-worker, family member etc, to clear the toxic energy of the room. But really, pair this stone up with your other stones to magnify the energy.
One of my favourites for sure! This is the perfect stone if you have fears or phobias. The Amber will aid in helping you get through them. Also a powerful gemstone for clearing away negative emotions and limiting beliefs that still may keep you back from living a life you deserve.
This is probably the best stone to repel negative energy and calm your stress/emotions. It’s an amazing grounding gemstone to help you stay, well, grounded in any stressful or upsetting situation. It’s also a beautiful stone to pair with others.
Another great gemstone to help with negative energy but this one is also really fantastic for increasing positive energy, self confidence and concentration. Keep a Fluorite stone in your hand if you need to face a difficult decision making situation.
This stone is by my side all the time while I’m working. It sits right on my laptop. This is an amazing gemstone for motivation, creativity and courage. It also helps with me with focusing on the task at hand. This is a great stone for those in business for themselves to help with feelings of success.
These are my top 10 stones and all of these, plus many more, are never too far away from me at all times.
