Crystals To Help You Get A Great Night’s Sleep
Getting eight little hours sleep can be harder than you think, in fact 25% of Americans get acute insomnia every year. This means that it can not only be difficult to fall asleep, but also to stay asleep. Unfortunately getting out of this problem can be a vicious circle – you are tired and need the sleep, but are worried about getting to sleep, further exacerbating the condition. This is where using crystals can help you, they can stabilize your mood, and relax your mind and body when you need it most.
Clearing the mind
When you are trying to get to sleep, it is important to calm the mind, or the events of a busy lifestyle can spill over into your thoughts too easily. This is why it is important to wind down in the last couple of hours before bed. Red Jasper is the crystal that can help you to do this. It works by releasing any resentments, fear and anger that you have pent up inside you. These kind of thoughts breed negativity and only serve to cause anxiety. In the middle of the night, when you are trying to get to sleep, your thoughts can often seem twice as worse. Wearing a Red Jasper amulet, or putting a stone under your pillow can help you to process your negative thoughts, ultimately letting them go in a healthy way. You can clear your mind and get to sleep easily, without worry.
Relaxing the body
Many people with sleep difficulties don’t have trouble dropping off. Instead they wake in the middle of the night, unable to drift back off, or return to sleeping deeply. This can also be an issue if you have a partner who has a different sleeping pattern than you – perhaps they come to bed later than you, or wake up much earlier. Having a disrupted sleep pattern means your body doesn’t go through a full rest cycle, and you wake feeling tired and groggy. Making sure that you are physically relaxed can help you get an uninterrupted night’s sleep. Using Golden Tiger Eye is good for this. The stone has natural, soothing vibrations that promote a sense of calm and peacefulness, and put you into a meditative state.
Controlling your dreams
If you want to get a great night’s sleep, then it is important that your dreams don’t stand in the way. Between 50-85% of people say that they get the occasional nightmare. These can be distressing and disturb your rest. They can also make it difficult to get back to sleep, or make you worry about going to sleep. We can’t stop the natural REM cycle, but you can be in control of your dreams. Using Amethyst, you can discover Astral travel, making your dreams completely spectacular. You will then look forward to going to sleep, to discover a new adventure.
If you get a good night’s sleep, you will wake feeling calm, happy and well-rested. Using crystals can help relax your mind and body, so that you not only drop off quickly but also stay asleep throughout the night.
