Curing Bad Habits with Crystals

We all have bad habits that we try to hide, sometimes even referred to as our “guilty pleasures” But sometimes bad habits can start to take a turn for the worse, especially when they are involuntary to begin with. The bad habits that some people face are nervous ticks, such as biting your nails, overeating, or picking at your skin.

In these cases, these are less guilty pleasures and more like annoying subconscious behavior we find hard to rid ourselves of. Did you ever think that crystals could help cure your bad habit once and for all? Well, we are here to tell you they can. Whether through soothing the wandering mind and bringing a more peaceful environment or meditative focus, crystals can help you overcome the bad habits you have been carrying with you for too long.

Turquoise Crystals for Balance

Turquoise is a blending of the cold winter blue ray of Trust with the approaching warm green ray of Growth. It is the color of the earth as the new growth and life emerges at the first hints of spring. It brings you balance, tolerance, and peace brought to you through water energy. Turquoise is the Color Ray of Discovery and the Color Ray of Balance. Its vibrations help you find yourself and return to equilibrium in your life and feelings. Excesses can be good. Hot passion, cool reason both have their place. But when we need to re-center and find our true selves, Turquoise is the color ray of power that is best suited for such endeavors.

Crystals with the beautiful turquoise ray are centering and balance crystals.

In darker, richer tones, turquoise brings us a ray of considerable power. It is the color of flexibility. Many of our shortcomings are based on intolerance. Bad habits can be part of this equation as well. Dark turquoise colored crystals offer you more openness, inner strength, and helps you learn to become more adaptable. We get used to the way we think people should behave; the way the world should work. We grow more intolerant of new things as we age. Dark Turquoise rays are potent anti-intolerance rays that will give you the adaptability in your outlook to learn, enjoy, and participate in the newness that is constantly being brought to life.


Amazonite is a mysterious and powerful stone. You can find it in shades of light to dark turquoise. For this purpose we suggest you seek out darker shades of Amazonite.

It provides the freedom to express one’s thoughts and feelings, and to set strong and clear boundaries, both internally as self-discipline, and externally on what one is willing to experience or in defining personal space. This makes it the perfect crystal to meditate with and discover your inner truths and boundaries and work on them. You can then carry the stone with you as a reminder to stay away from the bad habit you are trying to break.

Amazonite is a stone of tranquility, peace, and protection from the undesirable elements of life. It can serve as a real barrier against the undesirable elements of your life that are affecting your spirit and joy.

What Other Crystal Authors Recommend

Robert Simmons advocates Staurolite which are worn or carried to protect against sickness, accidents, and disasters.

"Staurolite is a helpful aid for those seeking to give up self-destructive habits and can assist one in going through cleansing regimens."

Michael Gienger recommends Fluorite which form a sort of spiritual cocoon in which your mind is free to grow, explore, dream, and expand without being disturbed.

"Fluorite helps dissolve blocks, fixed ideas, small thinking, narrow-mindedness and constricting thought and behavioral patterns."



There is an old saying that says, “Old habits die hard.” This is because no matter how hard we try, sometimes our bad habits can keep sneaking back up on us when we least expect it. Whether you are trying to quit smoking, stop biting your nails, or grinding your teeth, we believe crystals can help. You can look within yourself to find the root cause and resolve it. The stones also act as a reminder to stay on course.

We suggest dark turquoise crystals such as Amazonite and Chrysocolla. You can also try crystals that other authors have recommended such as Fluorite and Staurolite.
