Toxic relationships can take on many forms. It is not just ex-lovers who may create problems and drain your energies. ‘Frenemies’ (the friend who constantly sabotages you and brings you down) can be equally toxic as can parents and even your children. Author of the Crystal Bible, Judy Hall leads us through the top 10 crystals to help you get your relationships back on track…
Rose Quartz: Restore your heart
Gentle and packed full of love, Rose Quartz is the perfect heart-healer and emotional nourisher. Excellent for de-stressing, soothing and stabilising, place it over your heart to dissolve toxic energies and fill your heart with love. It purifies you and supports forgiveness and letting go. This stone teaches you how to love and value yourself – essential if you have been in any kind of toxic relationship. Wear it over your heart.
Anandalite (Aurora Quartz): Restore your spirit
Sweep Anandalite from your feet up over your head and down your back, and back again. Then from side to side to dissolve toxic energies and purify your aura. It then puts a cloak of protection around you that protects you and fills you with divine love and light.
Green Aventurine: Foil the toxic vampire
Green Aventurine is a wonderful protector for your spleen chakra. It cuts ties with anyone whose energy field is toxic to you and wraps you in a cloak of protection. Wear it constantly to ensure the cords cannot be re-tied.
Jade: Cleanse away toxicity
Jade is a very ancient cleansing crystal that gently dissolves toxic energies and takes it out of your energy field. It then fills your aura with gentle loving vibes. This stone helps you to forgive and forget, the best healing of all.
Selenite: Release the toxic mother
Selenite is crystallised divine light and is named after the goddess of the moon. It contains vibration of the divine mother and, held to your heart or over your womb, it will gently dissolve any toxic mother attachments and connect you to a source of nurturing that will never let you down.
Sunstone: Release the toxic father
Sunstone is crystallised sunlight and contains the vibration of the divine father. Held to your chakras it dissolves any toxic fathering attachments and connects you to a source of fathering that will never let you down.
Pink Agate: Heal a toxic child
Pink Agate is a very gentle stone of forgiveness that helps you to forgive a child and bring him or her back into the fold. It is particularly useful when worn after a tie-cutting ceremony.
Youngite: Release a toxic childhood
Youngite is a stone that heals the inner child and brings out the divine child within you. It brings you joy and forgetfulness, and the ability to laugh at the most traumatic of events.
Jasper: Cut away the past
Jasper knives instantly cut through ties and remove ties and hitch-hikers (people who are hanging onto your energy field). Dissolving old patterns they help the etheric blueprint reconstruct to a more appropriate configuration.
Stibnite: The energy shield
Stibnite creates an energetic shield around your physical body. It separates out the pure from the dross and is an efficient tool for releasing hitchhikers or toxic energy. Eliminating tentacles from clingy relationships, it assists in tie cutting rituals and past life release.
The Crystal Essentials
Always take these essential steps when working with crystals:
Step one: Cleanse your crystals
If you are using a tumbled or robust crystal, place it in running water to cleanse it and then put it out in the sun for a few hours to recharge – white stones prefer moonlight. Alternatively, use a drop or two of purpose made crystal cleanse and recharge essence. Fragile, clustered or layered stones can be placed in brown rice overnight or in a candle flame.
Step two: Request the pleasure
Hold your crystal in your hands and state your intention, asking the crystal to work with you in the best possible way for healing, protection or whatever you need.
