Turn down the Anxiety Volume with a Kit of Crystals to hold and play with when you’re feeling Anxious
- Blue Calcite
Feelings of anxiety and depression are experienced by many people, for different reasons and for different lengths of time. Sometimes the feelings are quite mild and intermittent and sometimes they can be overwhelming and for long periods of time. If that’s the case it’s a good idea to seek professional advice from a Health Practitioner.
For some, Winter can be a time of feeling low and anxious about things that don’t normally bother them. The short days (not enough sunlight) and long nights; damp, cold and moody weather can be reflected in our moods and vibration and the vibrations of our home and workplace and the people around us.
So we can talk about it, blog about it, get a pity party going, or just allow it to quietly overwhelm us, generally making our lives miserable...
OR WE CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
Here are a few things you might like to try…
- Carry a Crystal Kit on or about your person and play with the crystals when you feel the need
- Smudge your home (or bedroom if others you live with aren't keen) regularly, and even your workplace if you’re able to
- De-clutter your home and work environment
- Meditate and if you find that a challenge listen to guided meditations (and don’t worry about those random thoughts)
- Get regular exercise (walking is great) and just get outside more
- Eat and drink well (make little improvements at a time if that works best for you)
- Read or listen to books on personal development (just a few minutes each day really can make a difference)
- Don’t eat too close to bed-time
- Don’t work too close to bed-time or you’ll just take it to bed with you
- Play relaxing music during the day and/or at night as you go to sleep
- Have a cup of ‘real’ chamomile tea before bed-time to help you sleep and in the morning to help create feelings of calm (if you live in Palmy you’ll find them at The Cottage Apothecary on George Street and Organic Living in Terrace End)
- Place your crystal kit under your pillow or hold it in your hand during the night
- Get plenty of sleep
DON'T TRY AND DO ALL OF THESE THINGS AT ONCE!
Introduce the steps one or two at a time...
BUT DO SOMETHING! or nothing will change.
Remember if you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting the results you've always got...
While I have placed my intentions for you into our Crystal Kits, you need to do your part and place your own intentions into it. You might also like to cleanse or clear the crystals regularly to keep them fresh and free from negativity.
Some of the ways you can do this is with sage, incense, salt water (sea or rock) and you can place them outside under the full moon. Be aware however, that some crystals prefer not to be immersed in water and some don’t like salt. It can be a good idea to consult a crystal book or google for cleansing information for specific crystals.
