Right now, we’re living through some very hard times. Whether you’re grieving the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a job, coping with loss in the pandemic, we could all use some support.
Even today, after 19 years of the September 11th attack, we may experience grief, sadness, fear, or anger. Or, even all of these emotions at once.
Losing a loved one is a very difficult experience, and the grieving process is emotionally taxing. But there are things we can do to help ourselves cope and heal.
Crystals can help create balance and restore positive energies, helping you feel grounded. Incorporating crystals for grief can help calm your emotions and soothe your heart as you move through the stages of grief.
Holding crystals, wear it as a bracelet, or placing them on your body can promote physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Here are some that are particularly helpful.
Amethyst is perhaps one of the most powerful and universal healing gemstones. It relieves stress and amplifies a feeling of peace. Its calming properties help us not only overcome painful experiences but also clear our heads.
It is a great support in times of grief. It dispels fear and anxiety and alleviates sadness and grief. It helps you to adjust to any loss you have suffered, absorbing pain and grief, and offering spiritual protection and comfort.
Meditating or praying with Amethyst can greatly benefit us when we are experiencing grief.
During times of grief, we may also have difficulty sleeping, perhaps as a result of these anxious feelings.
Amethyst crystals have a soothing nature. They help settle the mind and can reduce insomnia and nightmares.
Wear this crystal as jewelry to benefit from its protection.

Black Onyx helps us to access our inner strength and it helps bring about transformation.
It supports us in times of loss by increasing our personal strength.
It also provides centering and balance at a time when we can so easily fall off-center and move to unbalanced behaviors.

Lepidolite is one of the best crystals for grief because it helps us through difficult times by revealing any positive outcomes that could come out of a loss, such as family members reuniting or a new outlook on life.
Lepidolite is composed of lithium, which is also in anti-anxiety medication so it will help to improve our mood as well.
It gives us a sense of wholeness in the midst of such great loss so that we can move through the stages of grief with less suffering.

This high-vibration crystal is one of the most prized crystals for healing both physical and emotional pain, pulling it away from the body and helping us to heal from the inside-out.
Clear Quartz is an amplifier. It strengthens the healing properties of other crystals and can also amplify our intentions if we wish to heal from our loss.
It works to cleanse the mind, body, and soul.

While Rose Quartz is commonly associated with feelings of love, it’s also a very useful crystal for grief. Rose Quartz is the stone par excellence for healing a broken heart.
In times of grief, you may begin to isolate yourself from your friends and family. Grief may also cause you to lose sight of yourself, and you may also lose the motivation to care for yourself properly. Rose quartz can help bring love into your life and help you feel accepted and supported during this trying time.

Moonstone is a very grounding gemstone that can be incredibly helpful to those suffering a loss.
During times of grief, you may dissociate from the world around you. Moonstone can help you center your mind and dissipate the feelings of numbness that often come from losing a loved one.
Moonstone is also a very calming stone, and it’s known for its ability to ease feelings of shock and fear, which allows the bereaved to gently move through the grieving process at their own pace.
