Sleeping with Stones and Crystals

14. juli 2012

I was kinda a weird child. I guess my Goddess life started early.

For many, many years, I was unable to sleep without my teddy bear, just like so many other children, but in my hand I had to have my stone.

It wasn’t just any old ordinary stone, mind you. It was my stone. The one that my mother had picked up on a sunny beach on Rhodos or Cyprus or one of the other lovely places she used to travel to. It had her essence in it, I used to think. It reminded me of mom. After all, it was her stone to begin with, and I got it from her.

It was smooth, oval, and almost pink with a grey stripe on it. And it fit perfectly in my hand. I remember that feeling of holding on to something solid, that feeling of getting a sense of grounding, through my hand.

I really miss that stone. I haven’t seen it after I moved out, and now it’s just gone, nowhere to be found. Maybe it felt it had done its job.

These days, I’m falling deeply in love with crystal healing again. Over the last few weeks, my Goddess life has taken me on a shopping spree, stacking up all the loveliness I can find. They seem to manifest everywhere I go, more or less unexpectedly, so I’m going with the crystal flow here and see where it leads me.

The other night, after having slept poorly for some nights, I decided to grab a large, raw-ish amethyst to bed with me, just to test it, just to get familiar with its energy… but the reaction I got was quite mind-blowing.

First of all, my hand felt right again. I realized how it had missed a stone to hold on to so badly, and I felt comforted and safe again, just like a child, still living at home with mom and dad. It was so peaceful, so… RIGHT.

And as I fell asleep, the amethyst took me to beautiful places. I dreamt of unity, of my old Christian friends and I coming along peacefully and with deep respect. I dreamt that I was in a theater with a man, on the scene, and our message was «love your feminine body and forget about false expectations generated by media». I was dreaming pure harmony and love, and as I woke up for just a second in the middle of the night, I stretched my back and my spine made that cracking noise – all the way from top to bottom. For me, that’s always a sign of relief, when tension breaks and my muscles are able to relax again.

And when I woke up, the next morning, the amethyst was still in my hand. I hadn’t even let it go during the night, holding on to what had been missing for so many years, so deeply needed.

I have slept with a crystal in my bed since that night, experimenting and trying to find the perfect sleeping stone, just for me. So far, I’ve slept with the amethyst until it left my hand, a pink opal, which was too small to hold comfortably, and last night I held on to a smoky quartz. That, too, stayed in my hand for the whole night, so it goes back to bed with me tonight, until my hand lets go of it.

I don’t know what this is. Maybe it’s just my body remembering what it felt like to be a child, tucked in, sleeping tight with a stone in her hand. Maybe it’s the crystals doing their magic. Maybe it’s a combination. I have no idea, but I’m going with it anyway, simply because it feels right.

And it makes sense, doesn’t it? To spend the night healing with the crystals, cleansing the aura or getting grounded?

Have you tried it? Or do you have any theories about this? I’m deeply fascinated, and dying to know. 🙂

  1. I absolutely love sleeping with stones. The only thing I have done though is to sleep with them under my pillow. Never tried holding one in my hand, but I think that I will tonight.

    The reason why I like sleeping with them is as you stated…the idea of the healing energy of the stone being with me all night. Not long ago, I slept with a rose quartz for almost two weeks because I felt as though I needed more loving energy in my body. At times I will sleep with an Amethyst if I wish to have more dreams.

    Now, I think I will experiment with different stones based on what it is that I feel as though I need for however many nights it takes. Hope you will keep us all updated on how this is going with you. Great topic!

    1. Cool! 🙂 Does it work? I mean, when you have an amethyst with you, do you find you dream more?

      Last night, I slept with a raw, black tourmaline. It’s the best so far, it seems, it stayed in my hand all night, and I felt really rested when I woke up. Will have to experiment more with that one!

      Tell me how it goes if you decide to sleep with one in your hand?

  2. That’s such a beautiful peace of writing, I love how imapcted your dreaming space was by the energies of the crystal. I have begun my journey to reconnect with crystals.

    I slept with a pink something (I’m not 100% on the name, my intuition guided me) in my hand for a few nights. I didn’t dream more but slept more simply, no remembering of dreams. I really needed that.

    I woke one morning to find that I had thrown it across the room! I think are healing journey was complete for now 🙂

    I once slept with my selanite wand under my pillow. WOW my dreams were epic, based in a higher realm. Too much 🙂

  3. I have slept holding stones & crystals in the past, but I never noticed or recorded how they made me feel. I use crystals and stones for energy alignment all the time, usually by wearing them, either as jewelry or in a medicine bag.I have them griding my home and next to my bed to absorb their properties as well. I will try sleeping with them in my hand again and pay more attention. It would be good to discern how they affect me so I could use them as remedies. Thanks as ever for your lifting blog.

  4. As massage therapists, my friend and I took a Chakra Stone Massage course where the teacher encouraged us to try sleeping with our palmar gemstones, assuring us that we wouldn’t drop them. My friend and I tried it that very night. The next morning, I had to tear my bed apart trying to find my rose quartz, and my friend admitted to having woken up at the sound of her red agate smacking against the floor after losing grip on it. No, I prefer to keep my crystals on the bedside table, where they’re safe 😛

  6. Sleeping with stones is absolutely great, not only to induce peaceful and restful sleep but also in cases of insomnia and other sleep disorders. Amethyst is also my favorite crystal to take with we when I go to sleep. I usually put it under the pillow and enjoy my dreams. Thanks for this great topic.

  8. I recently purchased a labradorite necklace. The first night I slept with it on and I was visited by a spirit. When I did some research, I found out that it helps with psychicness, clairvoyance, and communicating with the other side. I

  10. have been sleeping with it on ever since and have been having very lucid, vivid dreams that have been very helpful in helping me to grow in different ways. I find it fascinating how powerful it’s been.

  12. Love the idea of a crystal in my hand, I have such trouble sleeping. Love this blog and idea of the crystal in my hand.

    I wear 11 crystals in my bra daily to help my energy – being a super sensitive Empath and they really help.

    Thx and gratitude for this post and for all the sharing posts. ❣️
