Crystals to Help with Grief

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healing, Crystals, grieving 22 Comments

Sadly, as of late, there have been some people in my life who have had to endure the grief of losing a loved one.

It’s something we all have to go through at one time or another, but it’s certainly not something we look forward to and something we can use a bit of support with. We need to remember that grief is a very normal process that we must go through after the loss of a loved one to allow ourselves to process and work through.

If we don’t allow ourselves to mourn and grieve properly it may manifest itself in other ways and come up unpleasantly later.

As for crystals & stones to help us work through the grief & grieving process; apache tear, champagne tourmaline & smokey quartz are 3 wonderful stones to make the grieving process more bearable; helping to ease the grief of bereavement as we go through it.

I recently made up a mojo bag for a friend who lost someone very special that contained apache tears, smokey quartz, marjoram herb along with essential oils of marjoram & chamomile (see more detail in the video below).

Crystal Mojo Bag for Dealing with Grief: Grief Crystals

If using this for yourself, you may want to do some meditations with these stones and sleep with a similar mojo bag or simply carry it with you. You may choose to work with 1 or more of these suggested crystals, settle into a comfy recliner or lie down & listen to this Guided Meditation for Grief (courtesy of Meditation Oasis)

There is no way to avoid the pain of loss. Like I said, it is a natural part of the grieving process. But crystals can truly help us through, emotionally supporting us and allowing us to process and work through the grief.

How did the apache tear stones get their name (which are black obsidian that formed by being thrown into the air giving it a less glassy & more rough appearance)? There is a very sad legend behind the Apache Tears here. Click to read about that.

On our 2012 visit to Tucson, Frank & I took a side trip to Sedona, AZ & visited Apache Leap Mountain…a very somber yet beautiful spot:

  1. This is a wonderful post, and so true. Crystals can also help people who are grieving the loss of an animal friend, and can be helpful for other animals in the household, too. Our crystal friends love to help us in this way.

    1. I just lost my precious little chihuahua two days ago. He was my baby… a special needs dog I was blessed to have in my life for ( only 😥) 7 years. I am an empath and finding the loss unbearable. It seems I needed him as much, or more than he needed me! I am happy he is no longer in pain or with his other handicaps, and I know his energy still goes on…. but I felt he ascended immediately, and I miss his energy so much. My heart aches so deeply. I thought I’d had my heart broken before, until I lost him. I’m trying to find the best crystal to help me get through my process… does anything stand out in your mind from what I’ve said, that would make you recommend one over another ( there are so many choices) since I am having trouble figuring it out ( so distraught) 😭 myself. I would greatly appreciate a suggestion if you have any intuitive feeling about my particular situation. Thanks so very much. Tehya

  2. Thank you for this post. Towards the end of last year, I became ‘reconnected’ with a wonderful local crystal shop, here in the UK. I went in to buy crystals as gifts for a couple of people who I knew were having a terrible time, but also ended up buying for myself. We very sadly lost one of our beautiful dogs not long afterwards. The crystals I have bought have certainly been helping me over recent months.

  5. We recently lost my 16 year old son suddenly. He was struck by a truck and considered brain dead. We took him off life support the next day. That was November 28, 2012. It’s only been 4 months but we are having a very hard time trying to live on without our son. Our hearts are forever broken. Anything you could do to help my family would be much appreciated.

    Thank you

      Beth, sending much love & healing to you & your family. I have you in my Love Grid (((HUGS))) Please work with these crystals.

  6. I knew that I would cry if I watched the video on grief and crystals this morning before work, so I saved it to watch after work. My amethyst is really helping with my sleep (or lack thereof ) and I am seeing a grief counsellor, but the emotions still totally overwhelm me. The mp3 meditation on creating sacred spaces is very helpful, I try to do this at least once a day before bed, any other thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

  8. My name is Melinda Miner. You 25 year old brother was murdered senselessly, almost 3 years ago. We were very close and I am having a hard time. I have tried grief therapy, meds, etc and nothing has helped. I have a friend who’s into crystalsome and recommend it gives it a try. I just don’t know where or Melinda to stat. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.


  9. I’m hoping that HM or one of my Crystaline Cohorts will read this and offer some suggestions in augmenting this Mojo bag for grief and bereavement.

    I would like to make one of these bags for my Brother in law, who just lost his indentical twin brother.

    There is, of course, a mysterious connection between twins, especially identical twins.

    Please let me know if anyone can suggest a stone for that kind of Loss.

    Thank you for reading this. 💫
