Crystals for Grief

Crystals for Grief

by Andrew Pacholyk, MS L.Ac

crystals-for-grief_OM-TimesGrief is a normal and natural response to loss. Though we often expect to grieve the death of a family member or friend, many other significant losses can also trigger grief.

Grieving is important because it allows us to “free-up” energy that is bound to the lost person, object, or experience. This allows us to re-invest that energy elsewhere. Until we grieve effectively we are likely to find reinvesting difficult; a part of us remains tied to the past. Grieving is not forgetting. It is also not drowning in tears. Healthy grieving results in an ability to remember the importance of our loss, but with a new-found sense of peace!

The Crystals can greatly help minimize the pain and facilitate  the healing of this emotion.

Examples of grief include:

*The end of a relationship

*A move to a new community

*A much-anticipated opportunity or life goal is suddenly closed to us

*The death of a pet

Crystals for Grief and the Grieving Process

Here are helpful crystals for soothing grief:

 Amethyst can show us how to let go and trust; surrender so that you may see beyond the cycle that consumes you; give it all up, so that you can receive more. This is the stone of transformation promoting inner peace.

 Angelite is especially good for psychological pain associated with loss. Helps us let go of past mistakes, a greater sense of compassion, empathy and forgiveness through grace.
