I don’t often talk about my spiritual side on here, only on the odd occasion like this blog post! But I’ve not had any kind of surgery since I was 2 years old and I had my tonsils removed! So I had a lot of anxiety going in for this (also a lot of waiting around that holding on and fiddling with something helps) and was prepared to dip back into my spiritual side. I asked some of my online friends for suggestions and these were the three I decided on!
The properties of this stone are: peace, healing, calming, reassuring.
It speaks directly to the heart chakra helping to dissolve emotional wounds and fears, I have a lot of medical trauma to do with needles so this was important for me to help reduce my fear. It’s a good crystal to use in emotional crisis.
The properties: protection, harmony, good luck.
This stone prevents harm from coming to it’s beholder, again perfect for surgery as I was worried about things going wrong. I am also always in need of good luck. It helps sooth the mind and release negative thoughts.
The properties: blood cleansing, general cleansing, powerful healing, protection,
This is also a stone for healing, protection and calming. It also helps in adjusting to unforeseen circumstances, as we weren’t aware I needed surgery until the last minute and weren’t sure if or when it would happen. And it helps with irritability, aggressiveness and impatience, all of which I needed as I have mood instability and was also sat waiting for hours multiple times. It’s also ideal for anaemia (which I have mildly thanks to Crohn’s) and supports blood flow and circulation. Apparently also reduces the formation of puss (very specific but always helpful after a surgery!) and helps to heal inflammation and infections.
This post in no way is telling you to use holistic approaches INSTEAD OF scientifically proved medicine. This is a post on how it can be used as an emotional and mental aid through some tough times. I am an advocate for seeking out professional help rather than alternative therapies, but I see no harm in doing both.
