Three Crystals I Took With Me For Surgery !

Hey pals!

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!

Rose Quartz

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.

Blood Stone

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.

  1. Yeah I think so! I think it helps a lot mentally as I had something to focus my nervous energy on and something nice to hold and play with. Plus being ill, I’m honestly open to giving everything a go 😭

  2. These are great! I’ve been keeping Tigers Eye around, for grounding and inspiration and attracting good things. Also good for combating worries which is helpful because of my anxiety. I also have Jade, cause we can all use a little luck!

  3. Wow! This floored me because when I had my tonsils out twenty-two years ago, my mother gave me a Jade stone. I remember holding that rock and feeling a lot more sturdy and strong. I kept it as my “healing stone,” and pull it out for myself or my kids when they get sick. You must be an intuitive 🙂 I’m glad you found some solace in them!

  4. Awh it’s nice to see something your mother did for you continue in your life and pass down to your children too 💖 haha thank you I like to hope I’m intuitive I’ve worked on it in and off through the years but I mostly read tarot. Oh me too! I’ve not had any surgery since I was very small and I was really panicked but holding on to these crystals helped.
