We’re not afraid to get a little woo-woo, here at Sporteluxe. Anything for the sake of health, right?
And whether you believe in the healing power of crystals or just think they’re really pretty, there’s no denying that the mineral trend is only gaining steam. After chatting with the crystal experts at Energy Muse a few months ago, some of our team became full-fledged believers. According to Heather Askinosie, one of Energy Muse’s co-founders, crystals have their own energy frequencies, and having them near to us affects our own energy.
So if you carry a stone on your person to amplify your energetic abundance, you might notice a little extra cash flow your way or that everyone seems to want to buy you dinner. Some crystals don’t just affect your emotional wellbeing—they can heal your physical ailments, too. When it comes to sleep, keeping a few shiny rocks under your pillow might just be the thing that helps you finally feel rested and recharged.
Keep these six stones right next to your bed or directly under your pillow to feel their magic.
Selenite is kind of the MVP of crystals—if you’re looking for a mineral that’ll instantly clear your energetic field and just make you feel good, selenite is your go-to! If you go to bed feeling out of sorts, jumbled, or distracted, grab a selenite wand. Pop it under your pillow to clear your aura and realign your chakras while you sleep. You’ll wake up feeling centered and balanced.
Sometimes the names of crystals are less than subtle—and Angelite is an excellent example of that. Used to connect to higher powers, angels, and spirits, and for facilitating feelings of calm and inner peace, Angelite is used for physical ailments like sleep and osteoporosis. Put it under your pillow and ask messages from your angels while you sleep.
A beautiful stone that represents mental clarity and is connected to the heart chakra, Flourite can help you fall asleep faster and have more lucid dreams. Keep it in your pocket on the reg to have a wiser, more balanced view of life. This will help improve decision making, and help manifest ideas and bring plans to fruition.
Sleeping with a deep purple amethyst under your pillow or on your bedside table is said to facilitate out-of-body experiences and lucid dreaming. An amazing stone for protection from bad vibes (great to keep on your desk at work, too!) it’s perfect for keeping bad dreams at bay.
With a name like moonstone, of course this desert-hued stone is great for helping you sleep! Moonstone is supposed to help with calming emotional tension, and it’s also a powerful stone for tapping into the feminine energy, too.
Contrary to the rest of the stones on this list, smoky quartz is actually a grounding stone. It’s incredible to use for manifesting all of your hopes and dreams during waking hours, and during sleep it’s actually lovely for relaxing your energy to help you fall asleep more quickly.
