Top 5 stones to fight depression
The Quebec government recently announced new restrictive measures in two regions of the province aimed at fighting the onset of the second wave of COVID-19, with the rapid increase in the number of confirmed cases we have witnessed over the past few weeks.
These are without any doubt tough decisions to make. In addition to banning private gatherings, the government announced the closure of bars and restaurants, a decision that will impact a lot of small businesses. Some did not make it through the first wave, others barely made it and are entering this second wave with the gas tank on empty. Freelancers in the cultural sector, once again hard-hit, are seeing their contracts being canceled one after the other.
That being said, the measures put in place are necessary to ensure the safety of people at risk, as well as keeping our health care system under control.
From a personal perspective, this second wave and the measures recently announced can be a heavy burden. We invite you not to hesitate to contact your loved ones and to consult if you feel the need to. Resources are available to help you see things clearly and overcome these obstacles.
However, we have put together a list of stones that can help you overcome these negative feelings.
Bronzite is often thought of as an anti depression super stone. It allows us to overcome our fears and the helplessness that we can feel when we’re down. It helps to refocus, to stabilize us, and feel balanced and in control.
It brings the peace of mind and the objectivity we need to set aside our judgments, allowing us to see the bigger picture.
Stone of discernment, lucidity, and reconciliation, bronzite gives hope, reduces doubt, insecurity, and self-destructive thoughts. In addition, it gives us the courage to pursue and builds our emotional strength which helps us through difficult situations.
Stone of motivation and endurance, Carnelian has a joyful energy and calming effects that protect against anger and resentment. It is an excellent stone when you need an energy boost. It helps bring positive changes and to move forward in our lives.
Stone of peace, amethyst has an invigorating and protective action that strengthens the will. Its calming, yet uplifting energy defeats the fear and anger that may reside in us, making it a powerful ally in the fight against emotional difficulties and depression.
By wearing an amethyst, our stress disappears, our mood improves, and the negative energy around us turns into positive energy.
Amethyst vibrates with the energy of the third eye chakra, which helps us tap into our intuition, a powerful tool in our fight to overcome depression.
Citrine promotes good physical and mental health. Its joyful energy - it is often referred to as the Happy Stone - lifts us out of a bad mood, sadness, or numbness often felt with depression.
It stimulates the zest for life and satisfaction, fights stagnation, and allows us to move forward.
Stone of protection, tiger’s eye gives psychic and emotional strength. This stone brings optimism and clarity of thought. It empowers by filling us with the confidence and energy needed to overcome the obstacles we face, and allows us to understand what is blocking us in order to find healthy ways to overcome it.
Tiger's eye reduces anxiety with its protective energy that envelops us in a deep sense of security.
Remember that the use of stones in lithotherapy does not replace a medical diagnosis. If you suspect that your condition or that of a loved one requires medical attention, do not hesitate to consult.
