Crystals For Dealing with Obsession
Obsession is always a tough subject to tackle. This is because when it comes to obsession there is often a lack of intention or conscious thought that goes into it. Virginia Woolf once said, “All extremes of feeling are allied with madness”. This is a very good basis for an explanation for obsession. Any sort of extreme feeling such as love, anger, sadness, or even happiness can become an obsession. You can be dealing with a person you are obsessed with or possibly a substance. Obsession can also manifest itself into your daily life if you suffer from such illnesses as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. If you are looking to calm the obsessive side of yourself, then look no further, we believe crystals can help.

Michael Gienger recommends Obsidian which is a strong talisman of love and affection.
Obsidian bestows an unimagined depth on our emotional nature and helps with any type of obsession.
Sometimes a minor obsession can be a good thing, such as a new love or a really good book. However, without temperance to the hot fires of extreme emotions, obsessions can form quickly and become detrimental in many ways. If you are dealing with an obsession nor or if you suffer from an illness such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, we believe the strength and willpower found in scarlet colored crystals such as Red Jasper and Ruby can help. You can also try crystals other authors have suggested such as Charoite and Obsidian.
