Worry stones are latest trend in energy healing and promises to calm feelings of anxiety and stress with the flick of a thumb!
Western society is embracing a raft of alternative therapies, one of which is the use of crystals. Worry stones are at the fore of this trend. The technique goes back to ancient and religious times where the meditative process of rubbing soft stones between fingers helped to calm the mind.
How to use your Worry Stone:
Place your thumb on the stone and massage it. This action is somewhat trance like and can act as a catalyst shifting your attention from worry to something calm, meditative and relaxing.
For those of you who dabble in psychology, using a worry stone is akin to a self-managed distraction therapy. Shifting your focus from a negative into a positive. This is why we love our worry stones so much. Even if you don’t subscribe to the benefits of using crystals (woo-woo free zone), you can still harness the power away from something that is stressful into something very peaceful. We love peace. We crave peace and we shall have peace god damn it!
This crystal was originally called Lilalite due to its lavender colour. The soft lilac-lavender hues inspire an overwhelming sense of tranquillity that soothes and calms your heart, mind, or soul.
It is said that Lepidolite is the perfect healing crystal to help those who may be over emotional, dissolve the pain of deeply felt wounds, soothe the heart, and reduce stress.
The Lepidolite crystal is soft and brittle and can therefore only be cut and shaped when found within a larger quartz body. While the crystal itself is not uncommon, one that can be transformed into jewellery and pre-formed shapes, is rare, and therefore precious.
