Hi there! I also use crystals for my dog's separation anxiety, and I've found that black tourmaline has been the most effective crystal for him. Whenever I need to leave the house, I place a small piece of black tourmaline in his bed, and he seems to be much calmer when we're not around.
Before using black tourmaline, my dog would howl constantly and chew on furniture when left alone. But now, he rests much more easily with the presence of the crystal.
As everyone is different, it's tough to know if black tourmaline will work for your pet, but I'd definitely give it a try! It's a popular choice when it comes to crystals for anxiety in both humans and pets. Best of luck!
I completely understand how you feel because I go through that too sometimes. The crystals that have helped me with promoting grounding and stability are red jasper and bloodstone.
Red jasper has a beautifully rich, warm energy that can help to create a feeling of safety and stability. I like to place it on my root chakra during meditation, and I also carry a small piece with me in my pocket whenever I'm feeling particularly ungrounded.
Bloodstone, on the other hand, has a grounding energy that can also help with feelings of anxiety or overwhelm. I like to hold a piece of bloodstone in each hand during meditation, or while I'm doing deep breathing exercises. I also wear bloodstone as a pendant when I'm feeling like I need a little extra support throughout the day.
Aside from that, I also found that using grounding techniques like deep breathing exercises, yoga, getting outside in nature, and exercising regularly have also been helpful in keeping me feeling more stable and grounded.
Remember to trust your intuition when it comes to working with crystals. If you're drawn to a particular stone, it might be worth exploring and seeing how it affects you.
As someone who also suffers from GAD, I have found that certain crystals have been helpful in reducing my anxiety levels. One crystal that has been particularly helpful for me is black tourmaline. I keep a small piece of it in my pocket or wear it as a bracelet. It is said to have grounding properties and can help protect against negative energy, which can be particularly helpful in situations that trigger my anxiety.
Another crystal that has worked well for me is blue lace agate. I keep it on my desk at work and hold it when I feel particularly anxious. It is said to have a calming energy and can help reduce feelings of tension and stress.
Of course, everyone is different, and what works for me may not work for everyone else. So I would recommend experimenting with different crystals and finding the one that works best for you.
