Dream crystals associated with dreaming
Some of the most amazing tools for healing, are the treasures the earth provides us! Crystals and Gemstones are one of the most beautiful, mystical and profound “energy medicine” tools, which have been used for centuries throughout all cultures, religions, and empires.
Here are the best crystals for dreams and dreaming:
Amethyst – This stone, whose color represents the transition from day to night, can also be very helpful in helping one to relax and go to sleep. This is the stone for Dream recall. Stone of spirituality, contentment, meditation. It provides common sense, flexibility in decisions.
Barite -This stone is used by the Native Americans in their ceremonial practices. They used it to go from physical matter to the spiritual plane. In dream therapy, barite is used to promote and stimulate the dream state, allowing one to remember their dreams. Barite has a very strong effect on and is beneficial to the psyche. It is used to assist in psychological issues, particularly obsessive-compulsive behavior, neurosis as well as agoraphobia and obsessive cleaning. Barite roses, which sometimes have a white, red or brown tint to them, are considered “desert roses” and in Native American cultures are believed to be gifts from those who have passed into the spirit world, returning at night to carve out the rose as a gift of remembrance.
Hematite – is the most grounding and protective stone (Root Chakra.) Condenses scatteredness, fuzziness into mental clarity, concentration, memory, practicality, helps study, bookkeeping, detail work, sound sleep. Helps one regroup after jet lag, stress, birth, anesthesia and dreaming.
Herkimer Diamond – is one of the best crystals for dream recall. Shifts brain powerfully into alpha/deep stillness, opening the Brow and Crown Chakra for a strong, clear channel, psychic readings, meditation. The “Dream stone” – in meditation or pillow, it wonderfully enhances visualization, astral travel into the light and dream recall. Amplifies and stores thoughts, energy; use as a bridge to stimulate energy flow up through the Chakra.
Rhodochrosite – is good if you go to sleep or wake up feeling anxious. Gentle, yet probably the most vibrant loving stone to heal the Heart Chakra, especially for giving/receiving love. “Stone of Love and Balance”. Also for loneliness, loss, heartache, fear, insecurities, inner-child issues, abuse, incest…Helps self-forgiveness, deservingness and trust issues, spiritual-and self-love, desire to live, purpose.
