Crystals can hold powerful energy, both good and bad, helping to protect you, make you feel more enlightened, even ward off negative spirits. They can also help you relieve stress, sleep better, and feel more positive and manifest on a higher vibration. This is why it can be so useful to keep some crystals under your pillow as you sleep. They offer all of these benefits and more when cleansed and charged properly.
One of the best crystals you can put under your pillow is the amethyst. Amethyst is very cleansing and purifying, but it can also help you sleep a little better. If you are looking for crystals to help with insomnia, get into a deeper sleep, or simply be calmer while you sleep, then this is the crystal for you.
Another very calming crystal for putting under your pillow is fluorite. With fluorite, it not only helps to calm your mind, but it can also get rid of some of those negative and anxious thoughts you might be struggling with. For many people, having trouble sleeping is less about physical causes and more about your mental state. If you have a lot of stress or anxiety, your mind can’t quiet long enough to help you sleep.
Fluorite can also help with encouraging more lucid dreams, particularly if you get into a deep sleep in a shorter period of time.
Rose quartz is often associated with love and used for finding romantic connections and manifesting the person you want to be with. But it can also be used for self-love. If you have had confidence or self-esteem issues and want to manifest more self-love while you sleep, rose quarts is a great option. It is also wonderful for giving you more emotional warmth and love, feeling more positive while you sleep.
The benefits of keeping howlite under your pillow are very similar to that of amethyst. It is a calming and soothing crystal, used to ward of negative energies, protect you from bad vibrations that lead to nightmares, and can help to calm your mind and you settle down for sleep.
The last crystal to consider keeping under your pillow as you sleep is lepidolite. This is a wonderful protection crystal, so if you have been struggling with bad dreams lately, this is the crystal from 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 for your energy.
