Treating Insomnia with Crystals

Using crystals can help treat insomnia.

Insomnia and Negative Energy

When it comes to attempting to treat or eliminate insomnia using energy healing, the first thing one should always do is to try to remove the energy from your head and channel it into the ground. Most stress and anxiety, which are the primary causes of insomnia, are caused by excessive thinking and ruminating, which results in the psyche being in a chaotic state and not well grounded.

Crystals and Gems for Insomnia

To facilitate this process of grounding negative energies and removing them from your head try using Black Tourmaline, Black Quartz, Smoky Quartz, Pyrite or Hematite.

Crystals and gemstones that are to be used to assist with treating insomnia or other sleep problems should generally be chosen using one's intuitive sense.  The specific choice can vary largely based on specifically why a particular person has a hard time falling, or staying, asleep.

Once the root cause of the insomnia has been identified, specific stones can be picked which correspond to those specific causes. For example, sleeping with Charoite and Amethyst is often used to help reduce the occurrence of fear-filled dreams and nightmares; Mangano Calcite and Kunzite can help contribute to a feeling of safety and security which can help many people relax and fall asleep more quickly and easily; Smoky Quartz, Lithium Quartz and Lepidolite can serve to reduce and calm chaotic emotions and thoughts, which can make falling asleep easier.

Some stones which have been widely used as general sleeping aids include Amethyst, Howlite, Nephrite Jade, and Herkimer Diamonds. Other crystals and gems including Aquamarine, Blue Chalcedony, Blue Topaz, Blue Lace Agate, and Celestite have also been known to have been used in this regard.

Identifying and understanding the root causes of your insomnia can help you choose the right stone, but as with other crystal and gemstone healing choices, trusting your intuition and choosing a stone based on your feelings often leads to the most satisfying and beneficial results. Most of the time, if you open up your feelings, the right crystal for your needs will make itself clear.
