What Authors Say About Crystals
Judy Hall suggests Sodalite which is a stone of the intellect. It is used to enhance clarity of thought, concentration, and focus.
Psychologically, this stone brings about emotional balance and calms panic attacks. It can transform a defensive or oversensitive personality, releasing the core fears, phobias, guilt, and the control mechanisms that hold you back from being who you truly are.
Michael Gienger recommends Dumortierite which bestows a positive attitude toward life.
Dumortierite confers and easy, cheerful outlook on life and is, therefore, often termed the ‘take-it-easy’ stone. Dumoretierite helps us cope with panic and fear and encourages harmony and trust.
Robert Simmons advocates Larimar which has the energy to amplify and focue the the Universal Life Force to provie you the power of inner harmony and peace through spiritual realization.
Larimar soothes the emotional body, releasing undesirable attachments and relieving stress. Wearing the stone, one feels surrounded in an oasis of calm, always aware of the fundamental ‘all-rightness’ of the world.
Panic attacks can be very real and very terrifying and you should never have to suffer through them alone. They can get bad enough to where you don’t want to leave the house at all. You become afraid of the things you used to enjoy. You’re always in fear, waiting for that next panic attack. It is not a way to live.
