Whether you've dealt with anger issues before or if 2020 is really giving you something to
rage about, we get it. We all get pissed off sometimes. And rightfully so. But when the anger gets to a point where it's hurting you or others...it's time to examine why, and do something to slow the burn so to speak.
Enter crystals. With great options for anxiety, depression, trauma, and more, it's only fitting that there are stones useful for snuffing out those embers of rage that can fire up inside of us, shooting sparks at those who maybe don't deserve it.
The Best Stones for Anger Management
Of course, anger isn't caused by one thing. We can't help with WHAT is causing the feelings, but we can help you to dull those emotions and save you (and your loved ones, and the guy who cut you off in traffic) the fallout from your temper. Here are a few stones we recommend to help with that - remember this is by no means an exhaustive list!
Smoky Quartz: Protective, grounding stone, absorbs and diffuses negative energy like guilt, grief & shame, while elevating the mood helping one stay levelheaded during stressful periods.
Lapis Lazuli: Helpful for the throat chakra, Lapis promotes a calm demeanor when dealing with tense & stressful conversations, and can help diffuse angry reactions.
Howlite: A nurturing stone, which can make all the difference when you're feeling upset angry. Intensely soothing and calming, while increasing one's patience & self compassion.
Apatite: Reduces frustration & confusion, and soothes irritability. Apatite stimulates the intellect, which aids you in thinking things through before speaking or reacting out of anger.
Blue Lace Agate: Known as the Stone of Articulation, Blue Lace Agate aids in unblocking the root chakra, which dissolves the need to react hastily, instead encouraging one chooses their words wisely when faced with conflict or confrontation.
Jade: Filters out negative thoughts, leaving room for positivity, peace & tranquility. Aids in self-realization & accountability, helping to stop anger before it's acted upon.
What's the BEST way to use crystals for anger management support?
Wear them, of course! It’s important to remember that it’s typically easier to maintain a calm, rational demeanor by wearing your therapeutic crystal jewelry daily. It’s such a simple way to keep the crystals in touch with your body and against your skin all day, which is the most effective way to receive the soothing, anger-reducing effects from your stones. Remember to cleanse your jewelry & stones of negative energy often (we do it nightly when we're really not feeling great) and charge it with the intent to soothe anger & frustration, bring patience, and inspire articulation. More on that below.
Is a bracelet okay, or do I have to wear a necklace?
We get this question a LOT! Here’s the real deal about necklace vs. bracelet/anklet… we
advise you to choose whichever piece of jewelry you are most likely to wear as often as possible. Period. If you don’t wear it, it’s not going to help. That said, for those suffering from low moods often or from depression, our customers have reported better results with more stones. Necklaces tend to be the easiest way to get more stones on your body. But who says you can’t triple-wrap a necklace around your wrist or stack several bracelets together?! Do what works for YOU! Remember, we can turn any bracelet design into a necklace! Just send us a message.
Important note for crystal users rocking stones for anger & mood support: Please be sure to clear and charge your gemstones regularly. When you use crystal jewelry for quelling anger and frustration, your stones are exposed to high levels of negative energy and they will absorb that energy. Releasing that energy and retuning your stones back to their purpose will give you the best results when wearing your anger relief gemstones. For a breakdown on this and a how-to on clearing and charging your crystals and crystal jewelry, check out our blog post on that HERE!
