When you’ve had a great night’s sleep, don’t you just feel ready to take on the world? Well, sometimes we have the opposite happen. Maybe you couldn’t fall asleep, kept waking up, couldn’t get comfortable, etc. It doesn’t really matter what caused it, but now you have to go through your day feeling a little (or a lot) like a zombie.
I notice that I sleep better when I use crystals, so I wanted to tell you about the stones I use personally 🙂
If you’re more of a visual person, you can watch this summary video I put together 🙂
How do you use crystals for sleep?
There are a couple options so you can choose the one that feels the most authentic to you.
- Sit and meditate with your crystal before bed. Meditation on its own is a great way to calm the mind and prepare for sleep
- If your pajamas have pockets or you wear a sports bra to bed, you can put your crystal(s) in your pocket or in your bra
- Place the crystal(s) under your pillow, inside your pillow case **my favorite!!!**
Which crystals should you use to support restful sleep?
I’m going to talk about my 3 favorite crystals for restful sleep: selenite, rose quartz, and mangano calcite. They’re the ones in the photo at the top of the page.
Starting off with a safety note here, selenite comes in rough and polished forms. Rough selenite is great for placing around your home (above windows and doorways is my favorite). But please use polished/smoothed selenite to place under your pillow or to hold during meditation.
Well-known for clearing negative energy, selenite also supports healing at the energetic level. Working with this stone to balance and stabilize your emotions helps you find that peaceful place where you can drift off to sleep as though you don’t have a care in the world. More information about selenite can be found here: Selenite – Healing and Metaphysical Properties
The stone of unconditional love and peace brings perfect bedtime energy. Working with this stone helps you to being the healing process for any emotional woulds you are carrying within you.
This soft pink stone is soothing and calming, perfect for sleep! It also brings in the energies of peace, serenity, and self-love.
Where do you find these crystals?
You might already have one or more of these stones in your crystal collection. If so, I hope you enjoy using it in a new way! If you have a local crystal shop, you can see if they have any pieces in stock that speak to you. I carry these stones in a few sizes and sets in my Etsy shop – take a peek and see if anything piques your interest, I’d really appreciate your support!
