Practical Use: Grief

Grief is a multifaceted emotion that is typically experienced in response to loss. Although it is often associated with sadness, grief can also manifest as anger, guilt, or anxiety. The process of grief can be further complicated by the tremendous amount of stress accompanying loss. In addition to the emotional challenges of grief, many people also struggle with physical symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, and difficulty concentrating. While the grieving process is unique to each individual, there are some general stages that most people experience: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

Although the grieving process is an inevitable part of life, there are ways to ease the pain. One approach is to use crystals. Crystals can help to balance emotions, reduce anxiety and worry, and promote peace and calm. Working with crystals that offer supportive energy can create a space for healing and self-care during this difficult time.
