Crystals For Recovery
Recovery is a word that can cover a broad spectrum of cases. One could be recovering from an abusive relationship, a drug or alcohol addiction, or a bad accident. While all of these situations are quite different they all run through the same vein and end with pieces you’re not quite sure how to pick up and put back together. Recovering through emotionally or physically traumatic events is not easy. It takes time and work. If you haven’t already, we suggest you seek out a therapist to help you work through the aftermath. While you are working through it and beginning to heal, there are certain special healing crystals that can help you along in the process. When bad things happen to us, we should never have to face them alone. We suggest having a strong support system along with your therapist and just a crystal or two to ease you through this time of recovery.
Recovery should be a peaceful and soothing process. Almost a grieving process that can let you begin or continue to heal. When we think of tranquil colors, the translucent blue of the ocean comes to mind, which calms and eases us. Blue is the color of ice reflecting the slowly lightening winter sky as the deep violets depart and the sun climbs higher every day. As the winter slowly gives way to the budding spring, and life quickens, ready to burst forth, blue marks the beginning of life and emotion. Blue crystals bring you the trust, faith, and patience of water energy. Water energy is the energy of stillness, quiet strength, and purification. It embodies potentialities unrealized. It is yielding, formless, yet powerful. The water element brings the power of regeneration and rebirth. It is the energy of the circle of life.
Use Blue Crystals
Blue Crystals Bring You Trust, Faith, Patience, and Respect.
While the crystalline blue colored crystals are helpful in many ways, it is in lighter shades that efforts in recovery begin to be aided. In lighter shades, blue crystals are tempered with subtlety. The color of shallow pools of water reflecting the sky, light blue crystals help us reflect, ponder, question, and relax in our acceptance of the life we have. Use light blue crystals when you need to develop patience, reconcile differences, or seek forgiveness. They help us deal with guilt and acceptance as well. All of the emotions and steps listed here are an integral part to the recovery process.
One of the most calming stones you may ever hold is Angelite. Angelite is the stone of quiet strength and acceptance. Quite likely to be the strongest “gentle energy” stone in existence. It is a stone of angelic calming energy, excellent for purifying the emotional body. Angelite is a Dispeller Solidifier crystal. Sometimes in your life you need to rid yourself of things you have but no longer want. You want to get rid of pains, sickness, worry, and a host of unpleasant feelings. For these needs, the Dispeller talismans that form in the orthorhombic system are needed. Being a sulfide, Angelite is a Solidifier crystals which makes it particularly useful in efforts to stabilize a situation. All of these aspects are essential in the recovery process. Angelite will allow you to calm your spirit, rid yourself of emotional baggage, and stabilize your emotional, mental, and spiritual body.
Celestite is a very high energy crystals. It offers a gentle, uplifting energy which can raise and expand one’s awareness into the higher realms. It is one of the most effective stones for accessing the angelic realm. Celestite imparts gentle strength and enormous inner peace despite urging toward greater openness to new experiences. It is a teacher of trust in the infinite wisdom of the divine. With its calming effect, it can cool fiery emotions. Similar to Angelite, Celestite is also a Dispeller Solidifier which can help you rid yourself of negative emotions and energies while stabilizing your life and spirit. Celestite is associated with the Throat Chakra. The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body. It is a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other Chakra to be expressed. If it is out of balance or blocked it can affect the health of the other chakras. When it is in balance we can express what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions.

What Authors Say About Crystals
Michael Gienger recommends Amethyst which brings the natural power of creativity to us.
Amethyst encourages sobriety and awareness. It helps us face up to all experiences, even unpleasant ones, and encourages consciously dealing with perception. This heightens concentrations and effectiveness in thinking and acting and encourages the overcoming of blocks, uncontrolled mechanisms, and addictive behavior.
Robert Simmons advocates Moss Agate which encourages a sense of reality and pragmatic thinking.
Moss Agate emanates the vibrations of balance and stability in the physical domain. It is an excellent stone for individuals convalescing after an illness, or for those in recovery from addictions.
We all go through tough times in life and after the fall we inevitably pick ourselves back up, dust ourselves off, and start to move on. This last stage is also known as the recovery process. After a bad breakup, an abusive relationship, when recovering from and addiction, or any other type of unfortunate incident in life, we can use light blue colored crystals for an aid in our recovery effort. When used alongside a support system and counseling, crystals can be a very helpful tool. We suggest using calming light blue colored crystals such Angelite and Celestite. You can also try crystals that other authors have recommended such as Amethyst and Moss Agate.
