The surprising benefits of using crystals for children with anxiety

As the owner of Pocket Hearts and a mum of two young kids who have experienced anxiety the past few years, I understand the challenges of supporting children through their struggles. My daughter copes with anxiety due to her regular Juvenile Arthritis (JIA) medications, including weekly needles. My son on the other hand, had severe separation anxiety from limited interactions with other kids during the COVID lockdowns.

Through our journey, I’ve discovered the surprising benefits of using crystals for children with anxiety. Let’s dive into this magical world of healing crystals and how they can bring comfort and calm to our little ones.

Understanding the Uses and Benefits of Crystals for Kids

Crystals have been used for centuries to promote healing and well-being. When it comes to children, these beautiful gemstones can offer gentle support for emotional and mental health. Amethyst, for example, is known for its calming and soothing properties, making it a great choice for managing a child’s anxiety. Similarly, Sodalite is recognized for its centring qualities, bringing balance, focus, and rational thinking. This can be very useful for children (and adults!) who are struggling with racing, chaotic thoughts. Crystals can also help children with developmental problems such as speech and language, behavioral conditions like ADHD, and problems with anxiety and stress.

Here are just a few of the surprising benefits of using natural crystals for children with anxiety:

  1. Promote relaxation: natural crystals have been used for centuries as a way to promote relaxation and reduce stress. When children hold a Pocket Heart, they can feel its calming energy flowing through their body, helping them feel more relaxed and at ease.
  2. Provide comfort: Children with social anxiety often feel overwhelmed and uncomfortable in social situations. Pocket Hearts can provide them with a sense of comfort and security, helping them feel more grounded and centered.
  3. Boost confidence: When children feel calm and comfortable, they are more likely to feel confident in social situations. Pocket Hearts can help boost their confidence by providing them with a sense of inner strength and resilience.
  4. Encourage mindfulness: Mindfulness is an important tool for managing social anxiety. Pocket Hearts can help children develop mindfulness skills by encouraging them to focus on the present moment and be more aware of their thoughts and feelings.
  5. Promote self-affirmation: Children with social anxiety often struggle with negative self-talk. Pocket Hearts can help promote self-affirmation by reminding children that they are loved, valued, and worthy of respect.
