Crystals for Fear: How to Shift from Fear to Fearlessness
Although it manifests differently in all of us, fear is one of the greatest obstacles blocking us from reaching our highest potential. Not only does it hold us back from achieving our goals, but it can affect your energy and our well-being, too.
Fear is a big word, and a big emotion. As such, it can show up in all of us differently. In fact, many of the other emotions and feelings we experience are actually related to and stem from fear. If you’ve been worried, nervous, anxious, stressed, panicked, or confused, you may be in a subconscious fear state. Whether you are addressing one of these related emotions or fear itself, this deep-dive into how to shift out of fear and into a new state will help you to clear, heal, and reprogram your energy.
To give you a roadmap for this mini crystal program for emotional wellness, you’ll be guided through a few exercises including journaling, energy clearing, and intention-setting to help you arrive at a new, higher state at the end of it all. So, are you ready to live without fear getting in your way? If your answer is yes, keep reading to get started on your healing journey.
Reflection + Journaling
Why it matters: Before you can truly move through an emotion, you have to understand why you feel that way and how it impacts your life. Through these prompts and journaling exercises, you can begin to unpack how fear manifests in your life.
How to Get Started: Reflect on the past month and answer the following prompts by writing honestly and without judgement. DO NOT EDIT YOURSELF. We all have the tendency to do this on paper. But think about it this way: would you rather these thoughts and feelings be out on the paper or stuck in your energy field?
- How is fear impacting your life?
- When was the last time you experienced fear in the last month?
- What does fear look like when it's happening to you?
- When you are in a state of fear, how do you react? Do you avoid, get angry, shut down, etc?
- How did that experience make you feel on a physical and emotional/mental level?
- How would conquering fear change your life?
Crystal tip: You can hold a crystal of your choice (we love Clear Quartz!) in your non-writing hand when you journal to bring more clarity and insight to your reflection.
Create A Timeline of the Emotion
Why it matters: This exercise guides you to create a timeline of how fear has presented itself in your life. By the end of this exercise, you will be able to see the timeline of this fear and identify the patterns and behaviors that go along with it, which makes it easier to heal yourself from this emotion and those experiences.
How to do it: Download the Timeline Your Fear worksheet to go further back in time – as far back as you can remember. Pocket any experiences, instances, incidents or even thoughts that you can remember into the age that they occurred.
Crystals for Fear
The best crystals for fear are the ones that help you shift out of that toxic state and into a more positive one. But since we all experience fear differently, there are a variety of crystals for fear that can support your intention.
Our favorite gemstone to remove fear is Tiger’s Eye. When you harness the positive energy of Tiger’s Eye, you will feel centered and grounded, giving you the confidence and courage to go after your dreams. Let nothing stop you, not even your fear. That is the message of Tiger’s Eye. Even when you encounter fear, this crystal will help you feel empowered and emboldened to move past it. Rather than acting out of fear, it builds up your sense of courage to overcome fear and act out of strength and power.
Some of our favorite ways to connect with the Tiger’s Eye crystal properties are through touchstones and tumbled stones. When you are in a state of fear, holding a touchstone gives you a tangible connection to a higher state of being so you can shift your state right then and there. You can also place a Tiger’s Eye stone in your purse or pocket to keep its energy close as you go about your day.
Besides Tiger’s Eye, there are many other crystals for fear and other related feelings stemming from this emotion. Here are 6 of our top crystals:
- Unakite for shifting from being worried to being present.
- Blue Lace Agate for shifting from being stressed or overwhelmed to being at peace.
- Lepidolite for shifting from being anxious to being calm.
- Clear Quartz for shifting from confusion to clarity.
- Bloodstone from shifting from feeling stuck to moving forward.
- Amethyst for shifting from uncertainty and doubt to trust.
Clearing Fear with Selenite
Why it matters: Now that you’ve gone deeper into how you experience fear, it’s time to clear it away and release these experiences from your energy field. Working with Selenite helps you brush away unwanted energy. It is a tool to clear and remove any accumulated energy from your mind, body and spirit. As it removes negative energy, it flushes your system with pure, white light.
How to do it: Hold your Selenite wand in your right hand and make a fist. Hold your Selenite about 6 inches in front of your fore- head and your left hand about 6 inches in back of your head. Now switch the placement of your hands - left in front and right in back - in a sweeping motion over the crown of your head. Repeat this motion as you visualize the Selenite clearing your mind of any cluttered thoughts.
Crystal Tip: As an extra step, you can use a Black Kyanite crystal to cut the cords with fear after you’ve cleared your energy with Selenite. The sword-like energy of Black Kyanite cuts any remaining energetic attachments to experiences or feelings of fear so you can fully release it from your life.
Program Your New State
Why it matters: As a final step, it’s time to replace fear with a higher vibrational frequency. To counteract fear, this last step will guide you to reprogram yourself at a cellular level with the energy of fearlessness, courage, bravery, and confidence. Here’s where you’ll choose one of the crystals for fear discussed previously to use as your touchstone for a new state of being.
How to do it: Hold your crystal of choice in your hand and say out loud or in your head, “I am fearless.” Repeat this for a total of 3 times to affirm your intention and complete the cycle of fear.
Wearable Crystal Jewelry for Shifting From Fear to Fearlessness
