Our bedroom should be a sanctuary of rest and rejuvenation but with so many people struggling with good sleep, we have some of the best crystals to help. Sleep is so important to our mental wellness, physical prowess, and emotional wellbeing. It helps our biological bodies to regulate our hormones, strengthens our immune system, and encourages any damage to heal. Good sleep is one of the foundations for self-care and can encourage self-love to bloom. Sleep also grants us hours of integration and the quietude to subconsciously explore. When we say ‘sleep on it’ in the face of a big decision it's because our intuition and answers can meet us in the dream world.
Hunkering down to heavenly healing sleep can be tricky. There is so much going on in the world that our minds can race and negative thoughts can show up and stop us from relaxing into bliss. We can be overstimulated, stressed, anxious and any number of things that interrupt our natural need for rest. Bringing crystals for the bedroom into your space can help to create an environment and energy that encourages positive rest.

Another way to Approach Sleep - Gemstone Bracelets
If you want to get the best rest you can call on the healing power of rest ready gemstones to help shape the mind for sleep. One of the best methods is to wear gemstone jewelry like bracelets so that these stones have direct contact with the skin. When crystals are in close proximity to the skin they are able to pass their energy through to the body and nourish your vibrations by bringing their own. Whether calling on the powers of protection, positive thinking, easing anxiety, or grounding down to your root chakra, you will get the best out of your stone when it's close to the skin.
Another way of welcoming crystal energy into your space is to create a crystal grid to keep bad vibes at bay. You could also place a crystal cluster, tumbled stone, or quartz point (like an Amethyst cluster) at your front door to keep bad energy from entering this place of positivity.
Fill your sleeping space with the energy of love, serenity, and soothing sweet bliss. By cleansing the space of negative energy, bringing in positive energy, and encouraging the body to let go of any tensions and tightness from the day, you can grant yourself the respite you need. Even if you want other pleasures from your sleeping den, such as divine intimacy, deeper connection, and to delve into the dream world, the power of crystals can do all this.
