Anything from financial stress to health problems, tech overload to a fight with your bestie, or, you know, just general 2020s doom and gloom can affect our sleep patterns.
Lying in bed replaying arguments over and over, making tomorrow’s shopping list in your head or thinking about that report that’s due tomorrow can drive us into higher and higher states of anxiety, making it all but impossible to fall asleep.
To settle the mind, we have to relax. And to relax, we have to calm our energy.
Use these 5 crystals as an energetic lullaby for your overactive mind…
Selenite is one of our favourite crystals for insomnia. Like burning white sage or sprinkling salt, Selenite can cleanse your space of ugly vibes left behind after a nasty breakup, a death in the home, or even just bad juju left behind by shitty housemates who refused to help do the dishes. Just looking at it, it represents what your ideal mindset should be before you head to bed: calm and clear.
Connecting with your Selenite Crystal and having it in your space before you go to sleep each night puts you in that calm, clear state, programming your mind, body and spirit for a restful night’s sleep.
The great all-rounder, Amethyst is highly purifying to the aura, sleeping with it brings healing energy to your dreams, promotes deep sleep, and attunes your brain waves to the frequency of calm. So, rather than watching “one more episode” on Netflix next time insomnia stripes, try placing a piece of Amethyst underneath your pillow before you go to bed and give into the peace and calm this stunning stone can bring.
A stone of spiritual sleep states, let Sodalite rock you into a deeper slumber.

Fluorite’s healing properties work to enhance concentration and quieten and soothe the mind by removing mental blocks and diminishing distractions.
Fluorite encourages us to put down the iPhone, step away from the Instagram and switch off the laptop, because the secrets of the universe aren’t going to be found on your Facebook feed.

With a name like Moonstone, of course, this ethereal stone is great for promoting rest. Moonstone is known for reducing emotional tension, which will help you drift into dreamland. The stone was even used in ancient times as a sleeping stone.
