Crystals for Grief
Grieving is important because it allows us to "free-up" energy that is bound to the lost person, object, or experience. This allows us to re-invest that energy elsewhere. Until we grieve effectively we are likely to find reinvesting difficult; a part of us remains tied to the past. Grieving is not forgetting. It is also not drowning in tears. Healthy grieving results in an ability to remember the importance of our loss, but with a new-found sense of peace! Here are helpful crystals for soothing grief:
Amethyst can show us how to let go and trust; surrender so that you may see beyond the cycle that consumes you; give it all up, so that you can receive more. This is the stone of transformation promoting inner peace.
Angelite is especially good for psychological pain associated with loss. Helps us let go of past mistakes, a greater sense of compassion, empathy and forgiveness through grace.
Apache Tear is the stone for dealing with loss and mourning. It helps us to grieve our losses and move forward. This stone restores a sense of balance in your life, promoting protection and forgiveness.
Azurite is referred to as the jewel of wisdom or Stone of Heaven. It helps you release the past and gracefully anticipate and accept the future simultaneously.
Heulandite is a stone used when dealing with a grief and sense of loss. It helps to neutralize distressing thoughts.
Jet has been used to help soothe the pain of both a broken heart due to seperation or the loss or death of a relative or loved one.
Smoky Quartz helps to alleviate fear, anxiety and associated emotional depression. It is for those who are grieving and/or dealing with any of life's big events (birth, death, moving, marriage...)
Tourmaline, Black is a valuable stone for crises and for periods of extreme stress and time of intense difficulty.
