Crystals For Nightmares
When we lay down to sleep at night our dreams can take us to special places within our mind. They can lead us to magical lands, special moments, or unconscious desires. They truly are the window into our subconscious. But what happens when our escape at night, our magical realm becomes polluted and darkened? Nightmares can haunt us nightly in our dreams. The once pleasant and peaceful realm can easily turn into a place of fear and obscurity. It doesnâ€™t take long before we feel helpless to our nightmares and may even have trouble falling asleep in fear of them. However, you can take your dreams back and banish nightmares from your slumber for good with the help of crystals.
We can help bring our dreams back to the pleasant peaceful place they used to be with the use of violet colored crystals. At the onset of the darkness of winter, the oranges and reds of autumn give way to the deeper winter tones of violet and blue. The skies are darker with less sunshine; the earth takes on the darker hue of winterâ€™s majesty. Like the sleepy, misty time of year that produces its rays, violet is the color ray of intuition, dreams, nobility, and luxury. As the color ray of influence that begins the cycle of life once again, violet is one of the most powerful rays in nature.
Use Violet Crystals
While violet brings the color rays of dreams, it is the deeper dark violet rays that can help soothe our nightmares. Dark violet crystals have special powers. They are the â€œdream crystals.â€ They are the windows to the soul and the world beyond our ordinary understanding. They are best for aiding us in interpreting our dreams, and are the entries to places in our minds we donâ€™t know exist.
Violet Fluorite, appropriately titled, Dream Maker Crystals are the perfect crystals for anything to do with our dream state, especially quelling nightmares. Dream Makers protect your mind during sleep. They ward off negative energy that can cause nightmares and bad dreams. They form a sort of spiritual cocoon in which your mind is free to grow, explore, dream, and expand without being disturbed. Do you want peaceful, relaxing, invigorating sleep? Use a Violet Fluorite. Just be sure to awaken the spirit of the crystal when you get it. If you don't know how to do this, out Guide to Preparing Crystals in Section Four: Awakening Crystal Spirits, covers this in detail.
The classic crystal most people think of when you mention a violet shade is Amethyst. It should come as no surprise that the gorgeous and prominent violet rays in amethyst can help rid you of nightmares and bring your dreams back to an enjoyable state. You can place under Amethyst under your pillow or mattress, or rub the center of the forehead counter-clockwise to cure insomnia and stimulate pleasant dreams.
Dream Makers are enablers. They free your spirit at night to explore, dream, and travel without being molested by evil spirits, bad dreams, or fear. Used regularly, you will find you awaken each morning with a refreshed view of life, higher confidence, and more energy.
Amethyst is useful in balancing the Brow Chakra. When the Brow Chakra is in balance our thoughts and internal communications within ourselves are healthy and vibrant. We are open to new ideas, dreams, and visions, and can control the flow of energy within all the chakras. The dark blue/purple crystals of indigo are used to treat imbalances of the Brow Chakra.

Many people often cannot wait to go to sleep to experience the pleasant and often magical space that is their dreams. Dreams can be a relief from real lifeâ€™s stress and problems and also offer us a window into our untapped subconscious. However, when those dreams turn into nightmares it can quickly be a place of fear and darkness. The deep violet rays of such crystals as Dream Makers and Amethyst can help soothe nightmares and bring your nighttime slumber back to the place is should be.
