Being a Mum can be one of the most important roles we have, and most often, its not the only thing keeping us busy! Let's look at our favourite crystals to give Mums the energetic support they might be needing.
Our top 10 crystals for Mothers
Moonstone for Mothers
Moonstone is a great crystal for personal growth. It is also incredibly calming and nurturing, making it perfect for emotions and hormones. Additionally, Moonstone is awesome for Mums as it encourages you to trust your intuition and listen to that niggly feeling that something isn't right.
Rose Quartz for Mothers
Rose Quartz reminds you that your needs are just as important as everyone else, including your children. It reminds you to be gentle with yourself and show yourself love, compassion and kindness. Children can leave you feeling like you have no time for yourself anymore, however if you are regularly 'filling your own cup first' you will be more able to meet your family's needs from a loving place.
Furthermore, new Mums that have been through a complicated birth, or who have post-natal depression could benefit from keeping Rose Quartz on them or sleeping with a piece of Rose Quartz under their pillow.
Amethyst for Mothers
Remember what it felt like to have a full night of uninterrupted sleep? Some Mums are blessed with babies that sleep through the night right from the start, and then there are the other Mums ... Mums whose dream weekend away is a nice hotel where they can sleep for 24 hours straight!
One of the most popular crystals to work with for a better night's sleep is Amethyst. This is because Amethyst is a natural stress reliever which calms the mind and neutralises negative energy. This then helps you to relax and fall asleep more easily. Amethyst can also prevent nightmares so can be placed in your child's room if the boogy monster is keeping them awake.
Amazonite for Mothers
Motherhood is a time of constant change ... The soothing energy of Amazonite helps to calm emotions, plus ease any stress or tension that you may be experiencing. Amazonite is actually known as the 'stone of hope' and can help you to think positively plus be true to yourself and your needs.
Fluorite for Mothers
Sometimes we need a bit of extra help to think straight ... Mums often have a to-do list a mile long whilst also coping with sleep deprivation, hormones and baby brain (that doesn't just go away straight after giving birth!). Fluorite is a great crystal to work with to improve your concentration and focus. It also helps you to make decisions, think clearly and see the bigger picture.
Red Jasper for Mothers
Red Jasper is a base chakra crystal which promotes strength mentally and physically. If you are feeling lethargic, Red Jasper can boost your stamina and energy levels.
Natural Pink Agate for Mothers
Natural Pink Agate is an important crystal for new Mums as it nurtures a deep loving bond to grow between you and your child. What's more, as this is a heart chakra crystal, natural Pink Agate boosts unconditional love and compassion.
Citrine for Mothers
Citrine is a happy crystal to manifest dreams and success - perfect for anyone wanting to attract more prosperity, wealth and abundance into their life. Additionally, Citrine is thought to transform negative energy into positive energy so is excellent to have in your home.
Hematite for Mothers
Hematite is a crystal known for grounding and balancing the mind and body. It is also considered to be a very strong and protective stone, strengthening willpower and confidence. Boosting memory and concentration levels is another of Hematite's healing properties, great for when you can't stay focused.
Lepidolite for Mothers
Lepidolite is one of the best go-to crystals for easing anxiety and stress as it contains Lithium which is found in many anti-anxiety medications. Lepidolite can provide support energetically if you are feeling down or find yourself tearier than normal.
If you are feeling like this please also speak to your doctor. It can be hard to admit you aren't coping or that you may have post-natal depression, however seeking help is the best thing you can do for both yourself and your family. As a Mum who has been there - there is nothing wrong with taking medication if you need it x
How you can use crystals for healing
Crystal healing isn't an instant fix and being a Mum means that it isn't always easy to sit with your crystals or to wear crystal jewellery. As you know, little hands go straight for the earrings and necklaces that you are wearing. And don't even think about bracelets with crystal beads ... they are usually scattered all over the floor in minutes! Our favourite way for Mums to benefit from the energy of crystals is by using a small pouch so you can carry them in your pocket, your bra or place them under your pillow. You could also make gem water to drink throughout the day. Find out the different ways to make gem water here or follow this link if you are interested in a crystal healing kit for Mums.
