Stressful times seem to be the norm these days. Whether you’re at home, at work, or even at school, there are moments when you just can’t seem to get away from stressful situations.
Even in the digital space, it’s not surprising to see a lot of negative emotions constantly feeding a black hole of negative energy.
Even though it can be hard to find inner peace and the inner strength to deal with all this negativity, it’s not impossible when you know which are the best crystals for calming can help.
Having healing crystals or crystals for calming by your side can be a good way to manage anxiety, sleeplessness, high stress levels, and even panic attacks.
With the best stones as your allies, you can get long-lasting stress relief and you might not even have to take anti-anxiety medication as frequently.
If you arrange your crystal set with the right energy field in your very own sacred crystal grids, the deep breaths you’ve been longing for will come much easier.
What is the best stone for calming?
For your peace of mind, here are some of the most effective crystals for calming that I recommend:
First on the list is Amethyst, a powerful stone known for its soothing properties. I personally love Amethyst for its elegant appearance, but what really makes it a wonderful stone goes beyond what it looks like on the outside.
Dubbed as the “intuitive eye,” having Amethyst close by is the best way to awaken your third eye chakra, which can guide you in making big decisions.
Amethyst can also bring relaxation and clarity, as well as attract positive, calming vibes. In fact, crystal reiki practitioner Narayana Montúfar calls Amethyst the “natural tranquilizer” as it can promote spiritual awareness, inner peace, and better sleep.
Black Tourmaline is usually thought of as a protective stone, but it can work just as well as a calming stone.
Since it functions like reflective armor, Black Tourmaline can ward off the energy created by negative influences, situations, thoughts, and people.
With this, you can achieve a deep sense of balance, centeredness, and stability. Black Tourmaline can be especially helpful in the workplace, where there may be multiple sources of negative energy that could weigh you down.
Blue Lace Agate
Blue Lace Agate has its energy center in the throat chakra.
This makes it a great crystal for communicating with inner peace and integrity.
This can be especially helpful when you’re feeling stressed, which can cause you to say hurtful things out of anger, jealousy, or insecurity.
With Blue Lace Agate, you can avoid not only negative words but also negative thoughts, as well as the unpleasant feeling that you’re constantly being judged by those around you.
As a calming crystal that resonates with the inner light of angels, Blue Lace Agate also creates a profound sense of contentment that can help you overcome despair.
As a stone with an earthy appearance, it’s no wonder that Smoky Quartz keeps you grounded.
By helping your root chakra harmonize with all the other chakras, these calming crystals help you stay calm and connected without being easily overwhelmed.
Most of the time, this feeling of being overwhelmed can come from a place of fear.
But, with Smoky Quartz by your side, you have a great stone that revitalizes your inner strength. By attracting calming, positive frequencies, this stone can help you overcome your fears, pursue personal growth, and reconnect your physical body with your spiritual plane.
Whenever I need the courage to change my situation, I carry around Smoky Quartz so I can have the warrior energy I need!
Beautiful and pure, Clear Quartz lives up to its name by bringing clarity and light into your life.
Ask any crystal expert and they will tell you that Clear Quartz is a master healer, and a very powerful crystal that can help cleanse your soul. Bright and luminous, this stone can clear away whatever dark or negative energies might surround you.
Because it focuses on inner calm, healing, and cleansing, Clear Quartz will help prepare you to connect with a higher plane by stimulating your crown chakra.
Through this, you can unblock your energy flow and gain the wisdom resonated by the universe.
Known as the “stone of peace,” Larimar is one of the favorite crystals for calming that can fill you with serenity.
Its ethereal quality doesn’t just lift your consciousness to a whole new level but it can also fill you with the grace and tranquility you need to fend off stress and self-sabotaging behaviors.
It’s one of the most effective crystals for calming an overactive mind.
With Larimar near you, your energies can be rebalanced and your sense of peace will be transmuted into your thoughts, words, and actions.
Because it’s believed to contain the wisdom of the lost and mystical city of Atlantis, Larimar also allows you to perceive the divine and helps foster acceptance.
Delicate and lovely, Rose Quartz is known as the “stone of love.” Of course, its focus is in your heart chakra — but that doesn’t apply to romantic love.
A piece of rose quartz can also do wonders to encourage self-love. Many people seem to forget that to achieve inner peace and calm, you need to be able to love yourself and believe that you are worthy of being loved.
By restoring this feeling, Rose Quartz encourages self-forgiveness and releases you from feelings of guilt that may be blocking the positive flow of inner peace into your mind, body, and spirit.
Rose quartz is also a beautiful crystal and a very popular crystal to wear on a necklace or anklet. It helps you remember to put your own needs first.
Cool, Calm, and Collected
To stay serene throughout the day, you can wear these crystals for calming as jewelry, stuff them in your bra, or even just keep them in your pocket.
Crystal healing is very personal, and it’s all about bringing a sort of gentle energy into your day. Healing stones can be a really powerful tool for those old emotional wounds, too. So don’t be afraid to use the stones in different ways to get rid of that emotional pain.
This way, you can bring them to any seminar, social event, work activity, and the like. Of course, you can also place these crystals in your room or have them close by while meditating.
When meditating with crystals, diffuse some fragrant essential oils to make their calming energies even more effective.
My favorite for this is always rose quartz. Let me know if it works for you!
