Yes, it might seem crazy if anyone is trying to lose weight with rocks.
Healing crystals are something that you can’t either eat or use it as a weight for a workout.
But as we’ve mentioned in our crystal healing guide for beginners, there are certain properties that are gonna help you fight this physical and mental battle.
In this post, we are going to cover the best healing crystals for weight loss and how to use them for better results.
Why are you not losing weight - The Biggest Enemies for Weight Loss
Before we throw a bunch of names out, let’s talk about what may be holding you back.
Knowing your biggest mental challenges will help you to find the best crystals for your weight-loss journey.
1. Craving for food
Believe or not, your biggest enemy is not the food itself.
It’s something that you can’t taste or smell – the desire and it keeps you eating all the time.
Gradually, whenever we feel depressed or stressed, we turn to food for comfort.
In order to break that unhealthy pattern, you must find a more empowering source of comfort. “Perhaps a creative outlet, helping others, becoming active in an organization, whatever.” says Robbins.
Toxins can lower your metabolism and slow down your sense of satiety.
Carnelian can contribute to weight loss by enhancing the functionality of the lymphatic system and encouraging the discharging of toxins, thus help you to conquer the hunger.
2. Fatigue or Sore
“Sore today, strong tomorrow.”
Quite inspirational, right? But the feeble arms and crampy legs might make working out more challenging than it already is.
Most of the time the soreness comes form the lactic acid that is stuck in our muscles and is not dissolving fast enough.
Garnet can help to relieve the pain by mobilizing energy and stimulating circulation.
According to Florence Megemont’s book The Metaphysical Book of Gems and Crystals, garnet is especially helpful in treating rheumatic and arthritic pain.
If you are working out 4 or 5 days a week, why not take a piece of garnet with you to help with your recovery?
It can also assist in building a stronger heart and adrenals thus energizes our body and soul throughout the day. Use a rose quartz roller to message your muscles or anywhere sore.Feel the soothing energy flowing through your body. It will help you to heal and relax.
3.Lack of Determination or Motivation
Coming into a fitness plan, we all want to see results ASAP. But the good things do not always happen fast.
For women especially, it may take longer because of the complicity of hormones and thyroid system.
It’s really frustrating to keep seeing the same number on the scale if you’ve not skipped one workout or cheat on your diet.
In moments of doubts and frustration, what crystals can help to keep you motivated?
Tangerine quartz can help you get things done efficiently by increasing your self-confidence and amplifying motivation.
It is the best choice for those who suffer constantly from procrastination when it comes to working out.
4. Hormone disorder
We all know that a certain kind of hormone like Ghrelin will send us signal of hunger and encourages us to eat.
This is essential for the maintenance of our body’s functionality. However, if the amount of ghrelin in our body is more than enough, we tend to eat more when we don’t need to.
That’s why a balanced hormone system is the key to lose weight.
So what crystals can help you to restore and maintain the balance of your hormones?
Transformed from feldspar in magma, moonstone is the go-to crystal for rebalancing order.
It is especially beneficial for getting your hormones back to a balanced lever and can also help ease period disorder.
Labradorite is the stone of balance.
Due to the abundance of different minerals found in labradorite, this gemstone is one of the most powerful protective and supportive crystals.
How to Use Healing Crystals for Weight Loss
Meditation is definitely the best way to use crystals as a beginner because you can use one piece of crystal at a time and nothing else except a calm and focused mind.
If you are a beginner, you can follow this simple steps of crystal meditation or check out our Ultimate Guide to Meditating With Crystals :
1.Cleanse your crystal
2.Find a comfortable place to sit
3.Hold the crystal in your hand and adjust your breath
4.Portray the crystal in your mind and feel its vibration
5.Visualize your goal and describe your intentions to the crystal
6.Thank your crystal and open your eyes
The whole process can be 5 minutes to an hour depending on the connection you have with your healing crystals and how clear your intentions are.
Do it on a daily basis in a quite place where you’ll not be disturbed. With consistent practice, you will feel the change pretty soon.
2. Create your own Crystal Lock
This is a little trick that will work like a charm if cravings are your top fitness enemy. A crystal lock is one or multiple crystals that are packed together.
Place it near the unhealthy food that you can’t live without and it will work like a “lock” to keep your cravings under control.
Here’s how you can create your own “crystal lock”:
1. Put all the snacks or your binge food deep in a box or a bin.
2. Get a small bag and put one or more pieces of crystals in it to create your crystal lock (apatite or tangerine will be perfect in this case).
3. Put your “crystal lock” right above or beside your binge food bin.
4. Whenever you try to reach out for your snacks, take the lock out instead.
It will work as a reminder and simply recharge your energy field so you don’t need junk food to for comfort.
For better results, you can even put the binging bag and the crystal lock together deep in the fridge or on the top of the shelf.
By doing so, your accessibility to boredom or emotional eating will be further limited.
3. Take a small piece of crystal with you during workout
If you are feeling lack of energy or motivation, keep a piece of crystal in your pocket when you are out jogging or hitting the gym.
If you don’t have a pocket in your workout outfit, try wearing a crystal bracelet instead.
4. Wear your crystals as jewelry
Wear them as necklace or bracelet or ring, anything you want.
This will put you in the protection of your crystals for weight loss all day long and help to achieve better results.
5. A little “crystal prep” before meal
Before your meal, hold your crystal gently in your hand and drink a glass of warm water. Try doing it nice and slow for about 20 seconds.
During the process, ask your crystal to help you feel the food and sense your fullness.
By doing this, it will slow down your eating and digest process, discover the true taste of food and avoid overeating.
That’s it for all the tips to make weight loss easier using healing crystals.
The key to getting the body you want is a good mindset. Crystals can be your besties on the way fighting that extra weight.
They can guide you to build a healthy pattern of life and that’s what will make you stay fit and keep the weight off long-term.
