Crystal Support for Lifestyle Changes
I’ve put together information about a number of crystals that help and support with things like addictions, willpower and weightloss.
for all of you who have resolved to lose weight, exercise more, stop smoking, control your finances etc. this New Year.
All of the following crystals have properties that will support you with your goals:
AMETHYST, the “Stone of Sobriety,” is said to help with addictions, alcoholism, digestion, overindulgence, smoking addiction and cessation by helping to reduce addictive cravings. It is reputed to work well to help people break bad habits and be useful for people who have issues with portion control or overeating due to comfort eating.
Emotionally, it can assist with coping with change and connecting with your inner child. Connect with Archangel Jeremiel whose name means “Mercy of God” and who is the Angel of Prophetic Vision, Positive Changes and the Patron Angel of Emotional Healing.
BLUE LACE AGATE aids willpower to help you avoid eating when you are not hungry and just fancy snacking. It also helps you to stay calm so will be of use if you find yourself getting irritated whilst dieting or quitting smoking and aids optimism and positive thinking.
If you regularly use speaking affirmations or EFT, this is a fabulous crystal to use alongside those methods.
CARNELIAN the “Stone of Motivation” will help give you that energy boost between meals. It can help with the release of negative conditioning and stimulate the determination to complete projects in whatever form that takes. On a physical level, it helps with appetite control, body detoxification (particularly of alcohol or drugs) and stimulates the metabolism. It is also believed to improve vitamin, mineral and nutrient absorption. On an emotional level, it is said to help with eating disorders, self-confidence and self-worth.
*Carnelian can increase feelings of hunger in some people too; so if this is what it does to you, choose some of the other crystals to work with.
CITRINE, the “Stone of Abundance” and “Stone of Success,” keeps your digestive system functioning whilst encouraging the metabolism to work as it should.
It helps with whatever you need in abundance, such as income, patience and willpower. Emotionally, it assists with hope, inspiration, joy, self-confidence and self-worth.
IOLITE, on a healing level, is said to be useful for problems with addiction and alcohol abuse and is reputed to help with releasing fatty deposits in the body whilst detoxifying the liver.
Emotionally, it assists with calming the emotions, coping with change and the release of stress. It assists us in loving our whole self and is also said to be a great crystal when used for the elimination of debt and the responsible management of money.
QUARTZ (Clear Quartz, Rock Crystal), the “Master Healer,” amplifies the energies of other crystals and, as such, is a useful crystal to add into the mix with any of the others on this list.
It is believed to assist with metabolism and weight loss whilst amplifying energy and intention and supporting perseverance and patience.
RED TIGER'S EYE lends calmness to areas or situations where tempers flare, particularly under stress. It is a crystal that will help turn procrastination and lethargy into action, energy and motivation. Like Citrine, it is a wonderful money charm so you can keep a piece in your wallet or purse to keep the money flow moving.
It’s also a great success and power charm. In ancient times, it was worn as a talisman for bringing wealth and good fortune. It is reported to be an excellent crystal to use to help speed up a slow metabolism whilst assisting with self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth.
SUNSTONE will help keep you motivated when the day has been tough, supporting you in times of change and bringing hope at times of despair. It is reported to aid weight loss by increasing the metabolism and willpower whilst suppressing hunger.
On an emotional level, it helps with both feelings of failure and abandonment issues and can also assist with switching from old patterns of behaviour, especially for those who put others’ needs above their own in a way that could be detrimental to their own health, i.e. people pleasers.
TIGER IRON is said to be a helpful aid to those who feel emotionally, mentally or physically exhausted and burnt out. It can help you find strength in times of change and can also assist in finding new ways of dealing with old problems in order to change habitual patterns of behaviour and to strengthen resolve.
Physically, it is thought to work by encouraging the cells of the body to remember that state of perfection when they were healthy and support you in returning to that state. This is another crystal which helps increase feelings of self-confidence and self-worth. It is a combination of Gold Tiger Eye, Hematite and Red Jasper so will help with keeping you grounded, feeling protected and easing stress.
How to Use for Weightloss
(Adjust to suit the purpose you require them for.)
Choose the crystal (or combination of crystals) you feel drawn to and add a Quartz crystal to amplify the energy of them, Then:
Hold the crystals in your dominant hand.
Set the intention that these crystals will aid you by suppressing your appetite/ increasing your willpower/speeding up your metabolism (whatever it is that you want their help with). You could meditate with this intention in mind as you hold your crystals.
Carry the crystals with you in a pocket or a pouch all day and then at night place them next to your bed or under your pillow to keep them working whilst you sleep.
Before eating your meals, hold your crystals for a few moments and intend that your body will receive all of the nutrition that it most needs at this time (and that it clears anything that is not needed).
Place the crystals on the table near your plate of food so that they can charge your meal with their energy as you eat.
After you have finished eating, hold the stones over your stomach (or over the area that you would most like to lose weight) and visualise yourself at your ideal healthy weight.
You could place a cleansed raw Amethyst crystal in a jug of water in the fridge overnight and drink the Amethyst infused water during the day, top the jug up each night so you have a constant supply. As well as its usual properties It will make tap water taste more like spring water and because it tastes so good will encourage you to increase your water intake.
Affirmation: I am filled with a sense of purpose and an abundance of willpower.
Important to Know
WARNING: Crystals are not a replacement for a balanced diet; they are used to aid and support you whilst changing your eating habits.
As with all crystals you use regularly, don’t forget to cleanse and recharge it at least once a month.
For crystal healers who use crystals in their work, they should be cleansed after each client to remove any negative energy prior to being used on someone else.
PLEASE REMEMBER: Although the powers of crystals and stones are well documented and have been proven to help bring positivity into people's lives, they are never a substitute for medical advice.
