What crystals should I have for my pets?
Whether they are jewellery, or novelty items; crystals, as well as stones and gems, have been valued for thousands of years for their healing and atheistic properties. As we explore their use and see and feel their benefits, the more our animals are likely to benefit from this branch of energy healing as well.
So, what are the best crystals to have as part of your collection, that will not only benefit you but your pet as well?
Below are the ones that are frequently recommended but my advice to you is experiment and see which ones work for you and your pet, as remember we are all individuals at the end of the day and should therefore be treated as such….
Rose Quartz – All about Love and Balance. Will help to heal past abuse and cruelty, so is great for rescue animals. This crystal helps an animal to forgive and let go and bring in a sense of love and gentleness. Can also be used to help with injuries, wounds and reduce stress.
Amethyst – Is a powerful healing stone and is normally referred to as a Master Healer. Excellent for animals that suffer from separation anxiety. Is a very calming stone and helps animals to relax. Also helps to calm hot headed animals and aids in training. Is a powerful all-round healer.
Clear Quartz – Another Master Healer. Is effective for many conditions both physical, spiritual, mental/ emotional and can amplify energy. It can encourage healing, boost the immune system and alleviate symptoms of pain and inflammation. It is also good for amplifying intentions between dog and owner, so useful during training sessions as strengthens mental clarity but also helps with bonding.
Citrine – Gives off positive energies and is sometimes referred to as the Happy Stone. This stone brings about a sense of happiness and well-being. Its energising and helps to strengthen the immune system. Its great for animals that do have a low vitality and need a bit of a boost.
Blue Sodalite – A very calming crystal and is good for nervous animals. Also helps to settle your animal down during travel so can help with travel sickness. Good for phobias and is useful when an animal gets panicky. Sodalite helps to boost the immune system and aids in reducing the negative and enhancing the positive side of life. This stone allows self-acceptance, self-esteem and self-belief. Great stone for communication as opens the throat chakra.
Malachite – Is a stone that is used for physical injuries as helps to alleviate pain and discomfort. Breaks unwanted and compulsive behaviours. Corrects left/ right brain imbalances and grounds and balances. Malachite is a great stone for animals with arthritis as helps to ease the pain and discomfort associated with the condition. Please note this stone is highly toxic if ingested due to the high levels of copper, so must only be used externally, with supervision and in polished form.
Carnelian – This stone adds in confidence, boosts self-esteem and releases sorrow and depression. Think of this stone as the sunshine stone as will bring a ray of sunshine to elderly animals that may be fading in their final years. Helps animals that are lacking in focus and understanding and is good for animals that have a poor appetite and are felling weak during illness.
Black Tourmaline - Can help with skeletal problems, muscle strains and hormone imbalances. Is also a great stone to protect against background radiation like TV’s and computers. This stone is a must have for animals to protect them from human negativity and helps them to adapt to human environments. Our animals absorb a lot from us and this stone just helps give them protection from absorbing too much negativity such as stress, anxiety, anger, fear, depression.Do any of these stones resonate with you and your pet?
