Many of us use crystals and gems for ourselves for their healing and spiritual properties. However, many people don’t think to use these same tools for their dogs, cats, or other pets. Crystals, along with other alternative therapies and treatments, can have profound healing effects on our bodies and minds.

Even though they are not understood by the conventional medical community, many people find these therapies are successful for improving health and wellness, and achieving better spiritual and emotional balance. Also, these therapies are desirable, as they tend to not come with many of the negative side-effects associated with conventional medicine.

We consider all the options and tools for our own health and well-being. We shouldn’t do any less for our dogs and other pets.

Choosing Crystals for Your Dog, Cat, or other Pet

We put a lot of thought into choosing the right puppy for our family, but how do we go about choosing the right crystal for them? For people, we can simply pick one up see how it makes us feel. However, picking a crystal or gem for somebody else, including your dog, can be a bit more difficult. We want to make sure we pick the right stone, but we don’t have direct insight into their feelings or mind.

There isn’t one “correct” method for choosing a crystal. However, here are some useful guidelines when trying to pick the right stone for your pet.

Your Dog Should Choose Their Own Crystals

First, choose a few crystals for your pet to test out. You want to limit this to three or four for your dog to choose from. Use your best judgment according to what you know about your pet and what you know about certain stones.

Next, show your dog one of the crystals by holding it in front of them. Let your pet smell it, sniff it, and investigate it. Obviously, make sure your dog doesn’t try to eat it. Make sure your pet has adequate time to check out the crystal. As your dog interacts with the stone, be aware of their reactions. Does it have any observable effect on your dog’s mood or behavior? If they show interest in that stone, set it aside as a possible candidate. On the other hand, if they show no interest, or have a negative reaction, discard this one.

Next, take the crystal away and see how your dog reacts. If your dog seeks out the crystal or remains relaxed, then these are signs that this may be a good crystal for your pet.

Repeat this process to narrow your candidates down to the crystals that resonate the most with your pet.

How to Use Crystals With Your Dog or Pet

Once your pet has selected a crystal, you can use it in various ways to enhance your dog’s health and wellness. A good idea is to place the crystal underneath your dog’s bed or the blanket they sleep on. Another method is to place the crystal in a small pouch with can be attached to your dog’s collar. Both of these methods allow for your dog to continuously be exposed to the crystal’s healing energy. Also, you can hold the crystal yourself while you pet your dog.

Crystals can be placed under your dog's bed for healing.

Placing a crystal under your dog’s bed can help them get the benefit of healing energy throughout the day.

Pay attention to your dog’s interest and reactions while using a crystal. If they continue to show interest and you notice good results, keep using the crystal. However, if your pet starts to show indications of stress or anxiety, or if you notice any type of worsening of behaviors or reactions, then you may want to stop using that crystal, at least for a time. That particular crystal might have too much energy for your pet, so overuse can overload your dog. Regularly monitor your dog’s interest and behavior when using crystals.

The Best Crystals to Use for Dogs

Amber is widely used as a tool for both energy and calm. It has powerful properties of protection and detoxification. Many dogs suffer from various allergies. This stone is an ideal tool to use for those pets. Also, dogs that are suffering from digestive problems can benefit from this crystal. Finally, it’s calming effects can be useful for dogs suffering from anxiety or fear.

Clear Quartz is widely valued for its transformative and enhancement properties. It can improve energy, moderate emotions, and accelerate healing. It is particularly effective for helping to relive pain and reduce inflammation. Dogs suffering from problems with knee and hip joints can greatly benefit from this stone.

Lithium Quartz is known for its ability to promote positive energy. It is a great crystal for helping to deal with depression in people, as well as dogs and other animals. Pets may become depressed when a loved one dies or if they have a history of being abused. Signs your pet may be depressed include lack of appetite, low energy, and wanting to be by themselves.

Amethyst has inherent qualities which are able to enhance calm and serenity. It can help reduce feelings of fear, panic, and anxiety. Amethyst is a great stone to use for dog that suffer from separation anxiety.

Green Aventurine is a powerful crystal for enhancing feels of love and positivity. Dogs are often more highly sensitive than people, and can easily be affected by sadness and grief. This crystal is particularly effective for dogs that have been rescued from a shelter or puppies that have just been separated from their litter.

Black Tourmaline is known as the most powerful stone for protection. Dogs are highly sensitive and tend to absorb whatever energies they are exposed to in their environment, whether positive or negative. This stone is often useful for dogs who tend to spend most of their time around humans. It can help mitigate any negative energies we unintentionally pass along to our pets.

Selenite is often used to cleanse and remove negativity energy from other crystals. It has soothing healing properties that can help relieve tension and soreness in the body. Selenite is particularly effective for helping to alleviate back pain. This can be a helpful tool for older dogs that suffer from join pain. Put a piece of this crystal under your dog’s bed to help them have more restful and comfortable sleep.

Conclusion

Crystals are wonderful tools that many people use to enhance and improve their health and well-being. These same healing properties can be used for our dogs, cats, and other pets. Keep in mind that although crystals can be powerful healers, they are not a replacement for veterinary care, when necessary. If your dog or other pet is displaying unusual behavior or symptoms, keep an eye on them, and take them to the vet if the symptoms persist or worsen.

Having crystals located in your living environment can provide many positive benefits, not only for you, but for your loved dog or other pet, as well.

Suffering with feelings of fear and anxiety is among the most widespread psychic and psychological problems experienced by people every day.  Worrisome world events, work stress, relationship problems, and worry about negative possibilities can fill us with a constant sense of dread or impending doom. Despite this, the world tends to keep going on, and our fears and anxieties do not prevent what we are afraid of anyway.
Apart from traditional techniques for dealing with fear and anxiety, such as the use of natural herbs, regular practice of mindful meditation, yoga, and trying to focus on the positive things in our lives, crystal energy healing can also be used as an effective tool for fighting and minimizing these destructive and negative emotions.

Almost everyone suffers from insomnia at some point or another. Some of us struggle with it on a regular basis, while others may have problems sleeping only occasionally. Not getting enough sleep drains us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We need to recharge every night in order to feel balanced, positive, and healthy.

There are a variety of influences which can contribute to insomnia. For example, if we drink caffeine or alcohol too close to bedtime, it may prevent us from falling asleep. These types of things we can control, if we decide to. However, other factors can be much more difficult to pinpoint and control, such as negative thoughts and energy. Crystals can be effective tools for helping to bring our minds and bodies into balance, allowing us to fall asleep easier.

Insomnia and Negative Energy

If you are attempting to treat insomnia using crystals, the first thing that you need to do is eliminate any negative energy located in your head and channel it away. Much of the worry, stress, and anxiety we feel are rooted in obsessive and repetitive thinking. As you probably have experienced, this type of repeating pattern of thoughts is one of the main causes of insomnia and sleeplessness. Obsessive thinking causes our psyche to become chaotic, preventing the calm state of mind required for sleep. We need to fix this by grounding our energies and eliminating negative energies.

Some of the best crystals and stones for grounding include black tourmaline, smoky quartz, pyrite and hematite. Using these crystals will allow you to drain the negative energy out of your head and channel it into the Earth.

Crystals and Stones for Insomnia

Just as with choosing crystals and stones for other purposes, crystals that you are going to use to help with insomnia should be chosen based on your intuitive feelings at the time. The specific causes of insomnia can vary widely, so the best crystal for the job may vary as well. If you find a stone that works well for you, it is likely to work for you again, but not always.

Identifying the underlying causes of your insomnia can be helpful for choosing the right stone for your situation. However, listening to your intuition and feelings often brings the best results. Most of the time, if you open up your feelings, the crystal that you need will make itself apparent.

That being said, there are some stones that are generally considered to be more effective for insomnia or sleeplessness based in specific causes. We’ve listed some of the most common causes of insomnia, along with crystals and stones that are well-suited to address those causes.

Insomnia Causes by Nightmares

Good crystals to use if you suffer from recurring nightmares or fearful dreams include:

Insomnia Due to Feeling Insecure or Afraid

Useful crystals for those who can’t sleep because of strong feelings of insecurity or fear include:

  • Angelite
  • Calcite
  • Kunzite

Insomnia Due to Chaotic or Obsessive Thoughts

If, like many people, you have a hard time falling asleep due to having repetitive or obsessive thoughts, the following stones can be particularly effective:

  • Hematite
  • Howlite
  • Smoky Quartz
  • Lithium Quartz
  • Lepidolite

Crystals that are General Sleep Aids

There are a number of crystals and stones which are widely used as general sleep aids and cures for insomnia. Some of the most effective crystals to help you relax and fall asleep include:

  • Amethyst
  • Rose Quartz
  • Clear Quartz
  • Ammonite
  • Nephrite Jade
  • Aquamarine
  • Blue Topaz
  • Celestite

Conclusion

Although we have found these crystals to be some of the most effective for helping to fight insomnia, there are many crystals that have properties that could help you sleep better. If you have had success with a particular stone or crystal, share your experience in the comments below.

Grief can be one of the most difficult and draining things we go through in our lives. Intense sadness and grief can be difficult to heal, and many people suffer with emotional pain for months or years. It saps our energy and motivation, and often disrupts our relationships, families, jobs, and our lives in general. Grief can take away our ability to feel joy or experience pleasure in things we love to do.

Being able to move beyond grief, such as that caused by a loved one dying, can seem impossible. Moving and growing through the pain can be very difficult and challenging.

If you, or someone you know, is experiencing these types of feelings, there are some crystals that can be particularly effective tools for helping to heal grief and emotional pain.

Best Crystals to Use for Grief

Azurite

Azurite is considered to be an excellent crystal for helping to heal from grief and sadness. It acts to remove energy blockages from the throat chakra and third eye chakra, thereby promoting balance and healing. This stone is also an ideal tool for reducing anxiety and enhancing communication. Meditating while holding a piece of azurite is an effective way to help alleviate negative emotions, including sadness, fear, and stress.

Rose Quartz

Rose quartz has a powerful and deep connection with to the heart chakra. The healing properties of rose quartz are profound, and help to promote compassion, empathy, and forgiveness. It helps to heal and protect our hearts from pain. This crystal is popularly worn on a necklace as a pendant. This allows rose quartz to impart its healing energy to the wearer throughout the day. This is also a great tool for helping to eliminate negative energies and influences from places. If worn on a daily basis, this crystal needs to be cleansed regularly.

Chrysoprase

Chrysoprase is widely considered among crystal users to be a profound and powerful healing tool. Like rose quartz, it is strongly associated with the heart chakra, and imparts soothing and loving energy to people who are struck with grief. Chrysoprase also strengthens and bolsters hope when we are feeling the most hopeless.

Apache Tears

Apache tears (also known as black obsidian) are one of the best tools for draining and dispelling negative energies and influences. These stones are a comforting tool for helping to deal with intense grief, such as the death of a loved one. However, please note that Apache tears can carry very intense energies that can rapidly bring repressed issues to the surface. These stones should be buried in the ground overnight, after heavy use. Burying them acts to discharge the negative energy they absorbed into the Earth, thereby leaving them cleansed and ready to be used again.
