Crystals & Children
Our children come into this earth with a instinctual affinity for mother nature. Children thrive when they are given time to spend outdoors and their brains are programmed to require that stimulation so that neural pathways to their senses are created. The many shades of green are noted and a “nature baby” can distinguish each one.
My three year old is constantly sneaking her way into my office and sacred spaces where my crystals live and every so often I will find one hidden away under her pillow or in her favorite purse.
I have found that children usually have a very strong connection with their intuition and although they may not always be able to tell you how they are feeling, when you present them with crystals – they know which ones they need.
If you are curious about what crystals could be beneficial for children, consider the following:
Amethyst: this powerful crystal can help to release any negativity, provide support through transitions and encourage rest.
Rose Quartz: this gentle stone can help teach about compassion and unconditional love.
Citrine: this crystal can help instill confidence and maintain the child’s ability to clearly manifest.
Jade: this crystal can help keep the inspiration alive in a child while ensuring their emotions are not overwhelming.
Hematite: this stone can be used to help a child ground themselves and to create a safe and protected space around them.
Carnelian: confidence, focus and concentration are associated with this stone which can be helpful for our kids.
Green Apatite: this crystal can help the growth and transformation of your child.
Blue Lace Agate: this beautiful stone can help with feelings of calm and peace. It can help our children connect with their inner wisdom as they go out into the world.
Red Jasper: this bright stone can help provide our little ones with courage and help them to release worries that they have been storing.
Clear quartz: this universal crystal can assist with clarity and resonance. You can set an intention with this crystal and use it to help amplify it to manifest your child’s desires.
You may find it helpful to place crystals that promote rest in their bedroom, or crystals to promote focus in their backpack. If your child needs a reminder of how special they are, a bracelet, necklace or touchstone in their pocket can be a supportive gift.
Tumbled stones are usually the best bet as they will withstand more wear and tear and are less likely to scratch or snag clothing.
Ensure your child never swallows a crystal and that they are safely used :). Remind your child to care for their crystals and to set them in the sun or moonlight when they feel called to for clearing.
Also, a friendly reminder to let them take part in the selection process :). We can learn a lot from our little ones.
