Crystals can hold powerful energy, which you can even feel, when you are sensible enough. The energy itself can help to protect you, soothe you, make you feel more enlightened, even ward off negative spirits. Crystals can also help you sleep better, relieve stress, and generally feel more positive. That is why it can be so beneficial to keep some crystals under your pillow while you are sleeping. Please remember to cleanse and charge them properly. And if they don’t feel right, choose another crystal, that you are drawn to! Also, please keep in mind that you should use it safely. If you can’t put a crystal in your bed without accidentally hurting yourself, rather put it on a nightstand or under the bed!
One of the best crystals you can put under your pillow is the amethyst. Amethyst has very cleansing and purifying properties. But it can also help you to sleep a little bit better! If you are looking for crystals to help with insomnia, or simply be calmer while you sleep, then this is the right crystal for you.
Another very calming crystal is fluorite. It not only helps you to calm your mind, but it can also get rid of some of those returning negative and anxious thoughts you might be struggling with. For many witches, having trouble sleeping is less about physical causes and more about your mental state. Because if you have too much going around in your head, your mind can’t quiet long enough to help you sleep. Fluorite is also a great supporter of lucid dreams!
Rose quartz is often associated with love and romance, but of course it can also be used for self-love. Rose quartz is perfect, if you feel you need to manifest more self-love while sleeping and if you have had confidence or self-esteem issues. It is also wonderful for giving you more emotional warmth and love, feeling more positive while you sleep, as it is a very gentle stone.
The benefits of keeping a howlite stone under your pillow are very similar to that of amethyst. It is a calming and soothing crystal, that wards off negative energies and protects you from any bad vibrations that might lead to nightmares. It can also help to calm your mind and settle down for sleep.
Lepidolite is a wonderful protection crystal, so if you have been struggling with bad dreams lately, this is the perfect crystal for you. Not only can it protect you in your dreams, but also protect your energies from turning too negative from stressful or anxious thoughts. For this reason, you might also consider carrying this crystal with you throughout the day when you feel like you need some extra protection.
