As a child I was always drawn to crystals and today my house is full of them. I always wear at least one around my neck and I feel a deep sense of support from these powerful entities whenever they are near.
Children are often more in touch and open to the beautiful energy that crystals give out and feel the healing powers they bestow a lot stronger than many adults. Introducing crystals to children is a great way to help them experience energy and the different vibrational fields available to them.
If you are wanting to help your child in any way, whether it be to feel safer, calmer or more loved, finding the appropriate stone will beam positive results for your precious little one. Its important to remember though that not all crystals are suitable for children and some can have adverse effects (hyperactivity for example) so monitor your child’s behavior to ensure the crystal is supporting your child in the best possible way.
Here are a few of my favorites suitable for children:
Rose Quartz: My all time favourite crystal. Rose Quartz is all about love, self-love, unconditional love and expressing love. It helps children to feel calm and peaceful, reducing stress, anxiety and brings an overall feeling of warmth and security.
Clear Quartz: One of the most popular crystals is Clear Quartz. It’s a great healing stone. It aids your immune system, protects your aura and keeps negative energy at bay. It also neutralises electromagnetic smog and helps you to think clearly so great if your child is continuously around Wi-Fi and electronic devices.
Amethyst: Amethyst is a very powerful and spiritual stone. It’s an extremely calming stone, reducing stress, anxiety, worry and eases mood swings; perfect for those unpredictable outbursts. Not only this but its calming effect helps relax the mind promoting restful sleep, ideal for under your child’s pillow at night.
Tiger Eye: Not only does it have a cool name, it is great at helping your child stay grounded and protected. It helps children with self-confidence and staying centered. If safety and stability are a concern then this is the crystal for your child.
Aventurine: If your child’s needing a positive lift, calming green Aventurine is the stone your after. This crystal improves ones well-being, eases stress and anger; promotes harmony, peace and a feeling of comfort. Added bonus, it is also great at neutralizing electromagnetic smog.
Agate: If you are wanting protection for your child then Agate is your stone. It boosts ones strength, courage and soothes the mind. It’s a great grounding stone, supporting your emotions and connection to mother earth. It brings harmony, tranquil energy and self-confidence.
Pyrite: Another goodie for protection and well-being. This bad boy guards you from all forms of negative energy and vibrations. It relieves fear and undesirable thoughts, encouraging feelings of empowerment and happiness.
Placing a crystal in a tumbler for your child to wear round their neck is a great way for them to receive the crystals energy however you can also place them under their pillow at night or around their bedroom and play areas.
Crystals are generally small, especially if brought to wear so ensure caution is used and your child is old enough to understand it is not something to be placed in their mouth.
