While there are quite a few excellent stones that can help stress as well as tension and anxiety, there are many that also aid depression. Note that some stones that are more effective than others to ease your stress.

If you are feeling physically or emotionally tense it can have an effect on many areas of your life. Using calming and soothing stones can be very effective to aid you.

Many healing crystals for you to use to relieve your stress are talked about on various pages throughout my site, but this article brings them all together to assist you to find what you need more easily.

Meaning Of Stress... So What Is Stress?

So what is stress?

  • Stress is a word used to describe the way you feel, when you 'no longer feel normal'
  • The words you use to label your feelings are describing negative emotions.
  • These emotions create a disturbance in the energetic field of the body.

You may have learned the way you handle your present life from the attitudes acquired at a time when you were just a child, and this includes many of the ways you act and how you feel.

These learned attitudes may have now become customary and may have been habits that started when you were only a baby or very young.

Some of the things that cause you stress now, are caused by your way of thinking. This negative way of looking at life may have have been created over many years, and has now become automatic. 

Stress can affect your overall health, and a number of health issues are related to uncontrolled stress. It is highly beneficial to take action to aid your stress, but many of you may be doing things that undermine your success.

It is important to learn ways to manage stress, as some of you may experience negative feelings every day that stress you, and these feelings are often caused by the way you think.

You may want to think positively and even try hard to do so. After a while your negative state of mind, and your feelings, become 'normal' and these normal (negative) feelings are labeled as stress.

How To Use Black Tourmaline To Relieve Stress

While there are quite a few wonderful stones to help stress it may benefit you to start by using  Black Tourmaline, as this is a powerful stone to use if you need to ground yourself.

There are a number of ways to use these powerful crystals for stress, but in my opinion the best way is to hold it in your hand. It has a powerful energy to quickly ground your energy and improve your mood.

Check out the symptoms of being ungrounded, as not everyone knows if they need to ground themselves. Black tourmaline has a number of other powerful attributes that also will help stress.

When you buy a new stone or crystal, it is advantageous to use it on its own first. Once you are fully aware of its energy, you may choose to combine it with other stones. Combine stones for short periods to begin with, as individuals may react differently.

But knowing how you can combine various stones may be helpful, as this allows you to get the most from your crystals, and may help you to solve specific problems in your life.
